About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths With A Pool, Hot Tub & Billiard Room (Sleeps 8)

Beach Music is a beautiful and spacious (4500 sq. ft.) two level home located on waterfront property. Private saltwater pool, a new hot tub and private beach access offer outstanding amenities. Easy driveway access and parking on the upper level bring you to a roofed, screened-in veranda. The lanai leads into the 750 sq. ft. great room which contains the living, dining and kitchen areas. The two upper level bedrooms are on either side of the great room and both open to water views and decks. A dining deck connects to the great room, and the pool, hot tub, gazebo and sundeck are located in a well-landscaped setting on the left side of the villa. Exterior stairs lead down to the two lower level bedrooms, the billiards room and more deck areas.

The house itself is quite attractive with a traditional Caribbean design featuring cathedral ceilings with exposed beams, walls of beautiful native stonework, terra cotta tiled floors throughout, multiple ceiling fans, over-sized sliding glass and oiled French mahogany doors, furnishings and accessories of mahogany, bamboo and rattan, and a deck off every bedroom.

About Marisa Antolino

We are from Columbus, Ohio and spend over half the year on beautiful St. John. There is no place like it in the world. This home has been decorated, stocked, supplied and highly taken care of as our main home - to your benefit, as it will have all you need and feels like more than a just rental house. You will fall in love with the beauty of the land on St. John and the friendliness and laid-back nature of the people. Let us know if you need any recommendations or tips for your visit - we are happy to help!

Marisa Antolino purchased this house in 2007

Why Marisa Antolino chose Estate Chocolate Hole and Great Cruz Bay

While the island (and surrounding islands!) is abundant with fantastic activities, often times when friends or family come to visit us here, we joke that the best spot on the island is our home. St. John boasts world class restaurants and beaches, but we love to cook in the open kitchen - which looks out over the ocean and is truly made for gathering friends around. While we are located so close to Cruz Bay, and Beach Music is always fun, hanging out on the deck or downstairs with some music and beers while playing pool can be the perfect spot to spend your evenings. The property is high enough to have a wonderful breeze that keeps bugs away, yet is a short path away from the ocean. We looked and looked for a house like this and are so glad we waited for the right one. We hope you have as many good times in it as we do.

What makes this house unique

Beach Music is one of a very few villas with direct access to the ocean and a small beach. Perfect place for swimming/snorkeling right from your villa! Lots of amazing marine life to be seen right in our bay. Stop at the outside shower to rinse off after your swim. Many homes on St. John have incredibly steep driveways - or even dirt roads to get there. Besides being close to the Westin and Cruz Bay, we immediately rejoiced at the easy incline of our driveway. Besides that, we love the pool that overlooks the ocean, a brand new hot tub as of November, 2016, and the covered gazebo area of the deck that is perfect for shade lovers and grilling out/dining while overlooking the ocean. The two top bedrooms are beautiful with fantastic views, privacy and access to the upper deck. The two bottom bedrooms both offer a great deal of privacy and access to the lower deck - perfect for groups of families or couples.

A perfect location and a fabulous house!

  • 5 of 5

My group of eight adults rented this home for a 50th birthday trip for three of the men. None of us had ever been to the USVI before and we were ready for an adventure!

First let me say that the owners and house managers were a pleasure to deal with. Any question I had was quickly answered. Any info I needed was provided. Peter met us as the dock and we followed him to the house. He gave us a tour and made sure we were set for directions on how to get back to the house when we went exploring. Google maps won't get you there...and yes, we made a few wrong turns but by golly we found it again!!!

The house is spacious and comfortable. It was very clean and is well maintained. The beds are comfy. There's enough breeze, assured by fans throughout the house, that we were all plenty comfortable!

The outside deck and porches have comfy furniture to enjoy the beauful views. The pool was refreshing and the hot tub was delightful.

We enjoyed the views, the song birds and watching the iguanas. There are so many of them milling about! They just sit in the sun and watch, never getting too close. We took as many pictures of them as we did ourselves!!

While we were there, there was a terrible line of storms tha moved through. Everyone we talked to after said it rarely ever rains like it did that night but it filled everyone's cisterns so nobody was complaining. Peter did his best to make sure we were ok during the power outtage!! He is a cool person and we enjoyed talking to him when he came to check on us.

I hope in a year or two we will be able to return and explore more of St. John and we will rent this home again when we do!!!

Beautiful property on St. John.

  • 5 of 5

When we travel to places like St. John, we look for nice homes to stay in. Beach Music was just what we like. The house is great and is just what we would look for if we were buying a place to live on St. John. The pool and view are great. Nice, forest trail down to the water - a very private place for snorkeling or sunbathing close to the house - only ever saw one other couple down there. The house is nicely furnished, roomy, clean, obviously taken care of. There were just four of us, but the house could have easily accommodated 8. Peter and Gail are the property managers and they are great - easy to talk with, and helpful. The house is just a 5 minute drive or so from the business of town - a perfect getaway at the end of a fun day of adventures on the island or water. The community of St. John itself is busy and congested. The roads are challenging and interesting, but the island, beaches, and water are amazing. We highly recommend the Island hopping/snorkeling full day tour with Bad Kitty! - Lots of fun and a beautiful way to see the surrounding islands and do some awesome snorkeling! Thanks Peter and Gail. Thanks to the Antolino's for coordinating our payment and stay. And thanks to the Owners of Beach Music! Your place is beautiful.

Beautiful villa; beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven had a great time during our stay at Beach Music. The villa is conveniently located, has everything (and more) that we needed, and was just fantastic! The villa has all the comforts of a well-loved home - comfy sofas and beds, cozy places to read or nap, large tables for family dining, blenders for making "Lime in the Coconut" (but go to Miss Lucy's and have one of theirs - good food with goats and chickens and a spectacular ocean view) and so much more! The bedrooms are spacious; the two master bedrooms on the upper level have spectacular views of Chocolate Hole - which is accessible via a short walk. We snorkeled in Chocolate Hole and many other spots on the island; did some scuba diving. There are many iguanas that make their home in the beautiful landscaping near the pool - we named the largest one Keyzer Soze and he provided lots of entertainment while we lounged on the deck. We had excellent, friendly communication with the owner and their property manager. The only downside is that we had to go home! Would go back in a second!

What a Fabulous Place to spend Christmas--Albany, NY and Portland, Oregon

  • 5 of 5

our large family all adults had a wonderful time at Beach Music. The house is great with a lovely indoor and outdoor kitchen. The beach is wonderful for sitting out and snorkeling. We especially loved the wildlife around the house, many lizards and birds. the beds were all comfortable and the pool table downstairs was a big hit with the adult children. The island is beautiful and we spent all our time snorkeling at the various beaches.

Great vacaction home

  • 5 of 5

Came with our three young adult sons and their wives/girlfriend. Lots of space and spread out so that people had a little alone space as well as wonderful shared areas. Pool, grill, pool table, sunning space and shade space, beach and snorkeling. Close enough to Cruz Bay and the north beaches. Peter met us at the ferry and got us settled and the rest of the week was wonderful. Great home for what we were looking for and we had a great time.

Your own - down a short path from the house.
Car: recommended

Located in Chocolate Hole, Beach Music is in one of the most desired locations on St. John. Just a five minute drive into Cruz Bay, you are close to restaurants, bars and shopping. The island provides wonderful hikes and some of the best beaches in the world - all within a relatively short drive. Spend the day snorkeling at Trunk Bay or time your visit to catch a nighttime full moon hike. For fitness buffs, our house is located in a very walkable neighborhood off of the main road. Scenic views of the ocean along the way! The Westin workout facility is a short drive or leisurely walk away (which also offers boat rentals, dive courses, etc.)
