SPECTACULAR PANORAMIC VIEWS, RATES DISCOUNTED FOR SUMMER

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Chocolate Hole - Villa IntimaSea

Villa, 4 Queen Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Villa IntimaSea, located in Chocolate Bay on the beautiful island of St. John, U.S. Virgin islands, is a spectacular 4 bedroom villa. Incredibly secluded, yet within 1.5 miles of Cruz Bay. While offering panoramic views, Villa IntimaSea is an ideal spot for one couple or a group of family and friends. The villa is a short 2 minute drive from Cruz Bay. At Villa IntimaSea you are invited to sit back, kick your feet up and relax where the sky meets the Caribbean Sea while you sit on Brown Jordan furniture on huge covered decks.The 180 degree panoramic views include sunrise, four Caribbean Bays, and sunset over St. Thomas. Every deck has stunning panoramic views.

Each of Villa IntimaSea beautiful 4 bedroom's have full air conditioning. Enjoy an array of shooting stars as you unwind in Villa IntimaSea’s plunge pool with waterfall both skillfully blended into the natural landscaping as well as a large, new Sundance Spa. If you decide to head to the beach, grab the beach chairs, cooler and beach towels and go!

The colorful bougainvillea lined driveway to Villa IntimaSea barely hints at the pleasant surprises that await you behind the villa entrance gates and Mahogany doors.

The fully equipped kitchen includes a stove and oven, as well as a microwave, dishwasher, and (NEW..August 2013) refrigerator with automatic ice maker and counterside stools for catching a quick snack. In addition, three bedrooms come with their own Kitchenettes!

While enjoying the privacy at Villa IntimaSea you have quick and easy access, just a five minute drive, to Cruz Bay with wonderful shopping, restaurants, and fabulous night life.

We own two villas on St John both on Chocolate Hole. Villa IntimaSea is my favorite spot to sit on the deck and drink in the amazing ambience that is St John!

Kim Ellsworth-Evans purchased this villa in 2004

Location, location, location. I love sitting on the quiet deck, knowing that I can be in town within 3 minutes. We like to walk to the Westin for breakfast. The roads are all paved...no scary hairpin turns! We were married on St John and it was a magical experience.

I could sit on the deck at Villa IntimaSea for hours. The photos don't do the amazing view justice. I love watching the boats, the clouds, and the waves crashing in Hart Bay!

Very goo family vacation

  • 4 out of 5
Had a great time visiting St. John. Villa Intimasea served our needs very well - Family of 5 (3 adult kids).
View from the house is amazing and the porches were almost exclusively the main living space for us with breakfasts, dinners, and evening conversation time all taking place on these two great porches. We had breakfast there every day, prepared lunches to-go most days, and made our own dinners there a couple of nights. The kitchen space and appliances/utensils are adequate. The bedrooms were excellent for us although due to their arrangement might not suit others as well. Beds were comfortable and baths served our needs just fine. Location was terrific. Overall everything was very good for us and we would stay here again.

We arrived on July 21 - July 29th. My sister found your home and 6 of us stayed there. The home
was beautiful, clean, well-maintained and the views were spectacular. Pool and hot tub were a plus. We had traveled to St. John before on cruises but this was our first experience staying on the island and we certainly enjoyed and will be back next year. GREAT TIME!!!

As to dining, we recommend ZoZo's (they are located in Caneel Bay). Beaches are beautiful, snorkeling was great and we would recommend Trunk Bay as well as Hawksnest, etc.

Thanks again.

One villa but pods are in different decades. Better suited for multiple couples than larger family.

  • 3 out of 5
June 2013 visit, party of 5

This is a 2-pod villa:

Pod 1 = original (or main) older living area upstairs with kitchen, master bedroom and full bath and a small den/living area (no eating area except for the barstools and counter). Downstairs is an additional bedroom that was not used by us (on purpose) because of smell and bed mattress.

Pod 2 = 2 (either new or renovated) modern master bedrooms with small kitchenettes, full baths and a Jack-and-Jill closet area where both rooms meet. Below this pod is the garage/carport that you drive up to when entering the property. Laundry room next to carport.

All rooms are air conditioned (except master bath) and contain queen beds.

Had major mosquito problems the entire trip so couldn’t enjoy the outside eating areas or sit and observe views from decks (which is a major point of this home).

Since we were forced inside, we realized the main living area does not support more than 2-3 people comfortably. We of course squeezed 5 into this area every night and had some fun game nights…it was just really tight is all.

The differences between Pod 1 and 2 are significant. The very aged appliances in the kitchen, older bed in pod 1 bedroom and some window handles do not work and cannot fully close.

We suggest Pod 1 needs an overhaul/update in the kitchen and bedroom areas (bathroom is OK as is) or the bedroom and wall to living area should be torn down to expand a much larger living area and a newly created eating area for the kitchen for times when bugs do force you inside. This would allow two couples to reside in the Pod 2 area but congregate in Pod 1 for meals, games, etc.

4th bedroom needs some looking into. I chose this over another location for that 4th bedroom and didn’t get to use it. Need to figure out what smells and maybe refresh area at least get a new bed in there.


** Positives**

Great Views/nice property
Outside Shower (awesome)
Easy driveway entrance into property
TVs - flat screens all around with DISH HD receivers
Pod 2
St John, so that helps!

**Concerns**

Bugs (during this visit) kept us inside
Greeter in a hurry to leave
Wi-Fi signal drops frequently
Security cameras turn on during stay
Pod 1 needs new mattresses
Majority of dishes chipped/need pot holder
Cooler has broken/cracked lid but still nice to use
Too many keys for different doors
No access to brooms to sweep up our own mess/crumbs
Minimal paper products – enough TP but only one roll of paper towels
Deposit return takes 6-7 weeks

Owner's Response: We take every comment and poor review to heart. We had informed this guest that the new appliances would not be installed until August. New appliances have been purchased (it took 7 weeks for them to show up on island). The project managers have been given a copy of every issue mentioned in this review and told to fix anything that is broken, replace the cooler, window handles, etc. Unfortunately, that said we will not be tearing down walls anytime soon. We will however be adding new plants and spraying for mosquitos. Tip for new guests: Catnip is 7 times stronger than DEET at repelling mosquitos. Simply rub some catnip leaves on and the mosquitos leave you alone. Catnip is being planted at the villa as well as citronella and lemon balm.

Most relaxing vacation ever!!!!!

  • 5 out of 5
This is a beautiful villa to rent. Met all of our needs perfectly. The main pod with the kitchen and outdoor area was the perfect setting. The other pod with 2 bedrooms and balconies was great for privacy. We loved the outdoor shower!!!! Loved the beach towels also. Kings sized beds would have made it more perfect, but the beds that are there (queens) were very comfortable. Loved also that the grocery store was so close by. Villas Management people were very helpful with e-mails and meeting us at the ferry and renting our car.

Stay at Intamasea

  • 5 out of 5
Overall experience was great. Home was close to Cruz Bay. Drive to home was fairly easy. View from the home was great. The two main decks were large a very comfortable, they became our living room. The 2 master suites in the newer section were large and well appointed. The property manager was great. We had a couple of small issues, Jared responed immediatley.

Not so great. Living / dining area is very small to non-existant. The large covered decks made this less of an issue. Kitchen and appliances need to be updated, especially the refrigerator!

Owner's Response: I am so delighted you enjoyed your stay at Villa IntimaSea. We appreciate your comments and will upgrade the appliances quickly. We fondly refer to or kitchen as a New York kitchen. Fortunately, we put full kitchenettes in the newer bedrooms. The deck with those incredible views is where we spend all our time too!

Fantastic view!!!

  • 4 out of 5
We spent 8 days at Villa Intimasea and enjoyed every minute. The villa was very nice and had everything we needed. We spent most days hanging out by the plunge pool and enjoying the view. Convenient location located only minutes to Cruz Bay. Definitely want to return.

Villa IntimaSea is a scant .7 miles from the Westin (we often walk) and 1 mile from the Starfish Market grocery store. We are 1.5 miles from downtown Cruz Bay's shops and restaurants. The approach to Villa IntimaSea is on nice paved roads that are a pleasure to drive.
