CALYPSO DEL SOL (3BR/3BA DELUXE) VIEWS, POOL, HOT TUB AND LOCATION 'TO DIE FOR'!

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Chocolate Hole - Calypso del Sol

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Calypso del Sol has glorious water views from the pool deck and from both large, covered porches, with inviting views of Chocolate Hole and Pillsbury Sound. You can relax around the unusually large pool or take a short walk to Chocolate Hole Beach or over the hill to Hart Bay. The house is fully and beautifully appointed to offer every comfort in a close-in but very private location, while making absolutely the most of its beautiful Caribbean setting. It is air conditioned and offers free WiFi.

The living room is furnished with traditional Caribbean furniture. With vaulted ceilings, ceiling fans, tiled floors, Caribbean art, and white walls, Calypso del Sol has a relaxing and inviting interior. For your entertainment, a TV/VCR/DVD, cable, and a stereo with a CD player are provided. The wicker sofas are covered in a colorful island print fabric. The great room is fully air-conditioned. And the views never stop.

The gourmet kitchen has cherry cabinets, a new dishwasher and stainless steel appliances, microwave, and a center island to allow collaborative meal preparation. The plates, glasses, serving utensils, etc., are also new and evocative of the tropics. The kitchen is fully equipped with almost every kitchen appliance or tool one could want. Although many wonderful restaurants can be found close by in Cruz Bay, you will probably find yourselves drawn to this efficient, fabulous kitchen to prepare a few meals featuring local food available from nearby grocery stores.

Among the most charming features of Calypso del Sol are its porches. Sliding glass doors toward the Bay open to the 500 square foot porch from the upstairs living/dining room with a fabulous view of Chocolate Hole Bay through the arched overhang. The same porch design on the lower level has comfortable rocking chairs, providing another attractive space outside the two downstairs bedrooms for reading or other activities. These porches are comfortably furnished to ensure maximum enjoyment and ease.

Just outside the living/dining room on the top level toward the pool is a screened porch with a table that seats 6 for al fresco dining – or you can eat in the inside dining room which also comfortably seats 6. A sofa and chairs make the screened porch an outdoor living or dining room, cooled by breezes from the ceiling fans.

Calypso del Sol sleeps 6 comfortably in its three equally-spacious bedrooms. One bedroom is off the living room, and has a king-sized bed; this bedroom – as the others – has a sliding glass door out to the porch and has wonderful views of Chocolate Hole Bay. Air conditioned and with ceiling fans, this room provides a tranquil, romantic island getaway. The large bath has a full, island style, walk-in tiled shower, and comfortable privacy.

The second and third equally-spacious bedrooms are on the lower level and open out to the large covered deck on that level. Each features king-sized beds that can also be configured as twin beds. Both bedrooms have sliding glass doors onto the porch and gorgeous views of Chocolate Hole Bay. Both are fully air conditioned. The porch has comfortable rocking chairs for easy reading or just watching the boats go by. The linens and décor for these bedrooms are tropical and cheerful, and “black out” curtains are provided for those who want to sleep in.

St. John’s gorgeous beaches may lure you into the Caribbean, but you may not be able to tear yourself away from Calypso del Sol’s azure blue, unusually large pool. The crystal clear pool is perfect for floating or swimming under St. John’s sun. Chaises make this a truly comfortable place to while away the day, reading or tanning or napping; floats are provided for enjoying the pool. Later, under the twinkling evening stars, you can enjoy the 6-person hot tub located right on the pool deck.

Calypso del Sol is the very definition of a charming, romantic, Caribbean-styled Villa. This Villa has it all. The landscaping consists of lush topical trees and flowers, including banana palms, guava, and many other local fruit trees. Because of its quietness, fine appointments, perfect location, and Caribbean style, Calypso del Sol is one of the most sought after homes on St. John for friends and families looking for adventure or for a quiet retreat.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This is our second time on St. John, and we have had a wonderful vacation. Calypso del Sol has lived up to all of our expectations! Even with a tropical storm blowing through on our last night, we couldn’t be more pleased. It is all part of the adventure…. I can’t say we have a favorite beach as we love them all for different reasons. We are already making plans for the next time we can come back. Thanks for a great place to call home!

Three couples jointly own Calypso del Sol. We all live in Northern Virginia and have known each other for years. St. John has been the scene of many special events for us...one of the couples even got married on St. John!

Sally Jaggar purchased this house in 2005

We all LOVE St. John and purchased Calypso to have a wonderful villa to share with others as well as a great place to stay ourselves. We're convinced that St. John is the best island in the Caribbean because it is so beautiful, the people who live there are wonderful, and the island is 2/3 National Park and therefore protected from over-development.

At Calypso, we especially love the fabulous sunsets, the big pool, the screened porch, and the perfect location – close enough to Cruz Bay but way quiet. Oh yes, and the birds and iguanas.

A WONDERFUL STAY, ONE OF MANY AT CALYPSO DEL SOL

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I have stayed at Calypso Del Sol a few times now, we love it there and we suspect you will too. We just returned from beautiful St. John after a late season two week stay in September.
Calypso is a great villa, whether it’s just for the two of us or if we bring family or guests. You’ll love the comfort and scenic views from the well appointed living room and kitchen and each bedroom. We particularly enjoyed the patio’s -- watching the sunset with a refreshing drink and good company or the view over the bay with a cup of coffee in the morning.

Whether you just want some down-time reading your favorite novel ( I read Grisham’s “ The Racketeer) by the pool or you want to enjoy a day at any number of beautiful beaches, anyplace you want to go is just a short drive from Calypso’s front door. I also was able to stay connected online ( yes, I had to work—a little) with the WiFi available. Our thanks to Nancy and Ernie who were available instantly if we had any problems with anything.

We’ve been to many popular vacation spots in the Caribbean, but because of St. John’s proximity within the USVI’s -- from your beach chair on many of St. John's pristine beaches, you’ll have an almost surreal view of near-by islands, many of which are a short dingy-ride away, other’s you can visit by any number of easily available sailing charters. Calypso Del Sol would be a great choice for experiencing all that St. John has to offer.

BEAUTIFUL HOME FOR A WONDERFUL WEEK!

  • 5 out of 5
Our entire experience with Calypso Del Sol was amazing! From the 1st email from the very lovely owner, Sally,who answered every question and was so knowledgable of the island to when we returned home and received some clothes we left behind! The location was wonderful, a few minutes past the Westin (where we stayed 5 years ago). Our jeep rental was perfect for exploring the island. We rented a dingy for the day from Noah's Ark by the Beach Bar and it was the best day of week, my 2 & 4 yr old wanted to do it again the next day. Don't miss dinner at the Ocean Grill for some fresh seafood and amazing house made desserts. Vie's Snack Shack (I believe on the east side) has some delicious chicken and possibly the best coach fritters on the island, definitely worth the $ for her private beach. We shared this home with another family- 4 adults, and 3 kids under the age of 5. We aren't sure who enjoyed the pool more, the kids or adults! The 2 bedrooms downstairs did not connect to each other or to the rest of the house from inside (we had to walk past the pool and up the stairs) which was confusing at first but wasn't really a big deal in the end. Perfect for 3 couples sharing the home. Everything was VERY clean and the property management were more than helpful in fixing the problem right away when one of the air conditioners wasn't working properly. We hope to stay here again on our next visit to St. John!

Owner's Response: We're so happy when Calypso works well for folks staying there! And one reason we have an on-island villa manager is to make sure that guests can get answers to questions or virtually immediate assistance if anything seems to "go on the fritz" at the villa. Everyone loves Nancy and Ernie, who take care of Calypso and keep it in tip top order.

PERFECT LOCATION ON BEAUTIFUL ST JOHN

  • 5 out of 5
Calypso was wonderful for our family of 5, great location overlooking chocolate hole and proximity to Cruz Bay make this an excellent choice for travelers looking to explore St John as well as go into town. The owners were beyond helpful with any questions I had before and during our stay. Highly recommend!

A WONDERFUL VACATION

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Calypso Del Sol. The island of St. John is beautiful and the villa was close to all the things we wanted to see. The house was well maintained, and it had all the amenities that we needed. We especially enjoyed the pool and the covered porch. It was the perfect place for relaxing and enjoying nature. The beaches on St. John are the best we have ever seen, and the people on the island were friendly and very helpful. It was the perfect vacation, and I would recommend Calypso Del Sol to anyone planning a visit.

HONEYMOON SPOT

  • 5 out of 5
Nothing gets better than this - the perfect house for our honeymoon. I am just sorry I did not write this review earlier - however it was a great location close to the downtown area but private enough to enjoy time alone! Sally was a pleasure to work with in securing our honeymoon reservation. Thanks for a great memory - we hope to be back soon!

Chocolate Hole Bay is quiet but glorious, with wonderful views out to the Sound toward St Thomas. The Bay typically has a few dozen small boats -- mostly sail boats -- anchored in it, making for a beautiful scene. You can walk about 10 minutes down to the beach for some gentle swimming and snorkeling off this sandy but 'unimproved' beach. Happily, this quiet area does not attract crowds like the famous North Shore beaches. One advantage of the Chocolate Hole location is that it is about 7 minutes to town, but the area is a quiet, safe neighborhood.

Other Activities: Sunning, reading, exploring, hiking, snoozing -- trying island drinks!
