About John and Vicky Daly

We are John and Vicky and are veterinarians in Virginia. We honeymooned on St John at Caneel in 1993 and have now returned over 100 times. We love to sail, snorkel, and listen to the sea breeze and surf just outside our panoramic windows at Beach Walk. Our daughter and dog also love Beach Walk. Especially exploring all the coral along the shore, finding hermit crabs, and spotting iguanas in the trees.

John and Vicky Daly purchased this villa in 2005

Why John and Vicky Daly chose Chocolate Hole

One of St John's best locations due to being located adjacent to a magnificent Tropical Reef. Very convenient to groceries, shopping, restaurants, Cruz Bay, and the north shore beaches.

What makes this villa unique

Kayaks and Snorkel gear free of charge. Beach Walk is a rare find being located of some of St John's most beautiful waters. Swim and snorkel and kayak without always having to drive somewhere. The sounds and sights are remarkable at our waterside villa.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The villa is adorable and the a/c was wonderful but not needed at night, great during the day though. I loved how cozy this villa is, I also love being right on the water. I can see why you do love this villa so much.

In addition to the view I LOVED the wildlife, the salt pond is amazing. If you go out there at night with a flash light you can see hundreds of little shrimp and their eyes glow, it is the coolest thing I've ever seen. (yep, nature/animal geek on board) There were also all types of weird fish and crabs to be seen too. I never knew there was so much life in those salt ponds. Unbelievable... I loved it.

I also loved the iguanas and set up a little feeding time each day around 9 a.m. I have the coolest pictures and they really loved the oranges and bananas we put out for them. Again, the nature geek in me couldn't get enough of it and I enjoyed that as much as the view. Do me a favor and drop a banana or two for my little scaly friends next time your there. They were so neat to watch and really looked forward to their little meal.

A great family house

  • 4 of 5

We came as an extended family of 7. One of our young adult children said "It's the best vacation I've ever had" Obviously the beaches and sights of St John are quite lovely but the evening dinners looking out at a Caribbean sunset with all of us enjoying each other's company is priceless. The house lends itself to readily to family groups. It is easy , casual, relaxed and comfortable -

Once the kids left after a week we had the place to ourselves and I was able to use the downstairs unit as a writing studio for an important project I'm working on.

It turned out great for my needs -quiet and cool and offered the solitude I needed

The owner provided great service through his property manager who, in fact, responded almost immediately to our request for more wine glasses. Our favorite beach was Salt Pond in Coral Bay - near by is Miss Lucy's seaside restaurant a must place to go for inexpensive drinks and great food . The baby goats like to mingle with the guests!

Great Location and Lovely View!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time staying right on the water, enjoying the kayaks and snorkeling just steps away. The home had everything that we needed to cook meals in, or just a few minutes drive to Cruz Bay, where the restaurant choices were abundant. We love the peaceful neighborhood and will definitely choose this home for our next St. John trip!

A wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Snorkeling and kayaking was what made our stay perfect. We literrally walked 20 steps from the house to the beach and started snorkeling/kayaking. The house was what you would expect it to be, clean, well maintained, and well equipped for everything that we needed. We will definitely be back soon!

wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here with our 3 children and had an amazing vacation. Chocolate Hole was a great place to stay and loved being on the water. The location was ideal to Cruz Bay and the stores as well. Loved the wild life as well. I would not hesitate to stay here again

Great week in St. John

  • 4 of 5

Beachwalk was in an ideal location! We were a pair of couples that we're looking to enjoy the various beaches of St. John. This property was right on a beautiful bay. We kayaked almost everyday. The kitchen was well equipped as we cooked in 5 of the 7 nights. Beds were comfortable and the house view was a postcard. The snorkeling in Chocolate Bay was very good but beware of the numerous sea urchins along the coast. It made for some difficult entries/exits form the bay.

Fun is the best way to describe Beach Walk. Sleeping up to six with 2 bedrooms and sleep loft or ten if you also rent lower level Aussie suite. Your kayaks and snorkel gear are on site and you'll want to get into that water just steps away every day. Get out for a nap in the hammock and a rest in the oceanside hot tub. Count the types of fish and coral you see in our reef at Beach Walk. The water is crystal clear and refreshing. The very best pool on St John is the ocean itself at Beach Walk Villa.

St. John is famous for its natural unspoiled beauty. Beach Walk displays St. John at its finest, being located 20 feet from the clear beautiful waters of Chocolate Hole. Beach Walk is conveniently located to the quaint town of Cruz Bay with its great shopping and restaurants. Also nearby is St. John national park and all the famous white sand beaches including Trunk Bay, Hawks Nest, Maho, and Francis.
