About John & Maura Kelly
After finding St. John a few years ago on an anniversary trip - and falling in love immediately - we have been thrilled to purchase this wonderful and historic home in Chocolate Hole. We live in Maryland and have 8 children together - 6 children are now in college or beyond, leaving us with two boys at home. We travel to St. John frequently as we have also purchased a business on the island - Drift Away Day Spa. We love our new vacation home and we know you will love it also.

Why John & Maura Kelly chose Chocolate Hole
We chose this property because it is extremely unique for St. John. While all properties are beautiful on this island, this house caught our attention immediately as we drove up the long driveway, past the historic ruins to the expansive yard and surroundings. It is truly a private sanctuary in which to enjoy the island and all it has to offer.
What makes this villa unique
The open floor plan is ideal for a gathering or simply relaxing and viewing the ocean. Enjoy the walking trail to Hart Bay. The screened sitting area is ideal for a late afternoon cocktail, for sitting and enjoying a book, or for taking a nice nap while enjoying glorious breezes and viewing the lovely landscaping. It's a very quick trip to Cruz Bay - great for an evening of dinner or activity. The house is equipped with everything you will need for a wonderful vacation - beach chairs, coolers, snorkel equipment, and a full stocked kitchen in which you can prepare any meal of your choosing.
