About Marisa Antolino

We are from Columbus, Ohio and spend our winters on beautiful St. John. There is no place like it in the world. You will fall in love with the beauty of the land 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 Chocolate Hole

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 Bar 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

While looking at different homes on the island, we began to notice one thing immediately before we even stepped foot in the house - the driveway! 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 relatively easy incline of the driveway. Besides that, we love the pool, and the covered gazebo area of the deck that we just added. The two top bedrooms are beautiful with fantastic views. The two bottom bedrooms both offer a great deal of privacy - perfect for groups of families or couples.

Beautiful Villa with everything you need

  • 5 out of 5
This villa did not leave anything out! We had all the amenities we needed and more. When my friends (7 of us) were looking for a place to stay and we wanted to have something for everyone. we had 3 couples and one single lady. the 4 bedrooms fit our needs perfectly. Sitting outside for morning coffee and overlooking Chocolate Hole was so amazing. The bay is beautiful and we loved watching boats come and go.
To say the house was well equipped was an understatement. It was clean, beautiful, and left nothing to the imagination. Music, Wine openers and views to die for. I could see why they call it Beach Music. At night when you listen carefully, you can hear the ocean waves, the birds and the sound of the breezes. Thank you Marisa. We will be back and hopefully soon.
PS, Gail and (sorry I forgot his name that picked us up) They were awesome and let us know all the great stuff going on in town. Thanks again to all! Amazing place with great people......

Nature's realxing sonata at Beach Music

The beautiful views from every room in the house at Beach Music make this the perfect getaway from reality. Truly a paradise found and one where my husband and I will hopefully return often in the future.

The living room and bedrooms with the large sliding doors allow for open living to the the tradewinds to provide the cool breeze and have the surf lull you to sleep. From the hammock for lazy afternoon naps to the easy walk to beach and perfect snorkeling to the warm salt water pool and outdoor dining area, this is a most desirable escape we could have personally designed. Private sunning porches off of the bedrooms allowed for privacy even when vacationing with others and were a delicious way to secure personal quiet time without infringing on others.

Can't wait to return to this little piece of heaven!

Most amazing location

  • 5 out of 5
When we arrived at Beach Music we had no idea it would be this close to town. It is less than a 5 minute drive from all the restaurants (We loved La Tapa and Caneel Bay for Sushi which were expensive and Rhum lines which was fairly priced) and grocery stores. Yet it was a world apart. We never heard a horn or a siren in the 8 days we were there. In two minutes we could walk down from the house and be swimming in beautiful Chocolate Hole. We saw all sorts of pretty fish, eagle rays and sea turtles (our favorite).
The house itself was quite large. There were plenty of spots to sit and read in the sun or in the shade. The view was to die for. I couldn't wait to wake each morning and watch the sun rise. The other thing we loved about the house was that it was never hot. The high ceilings and trade winds kept it very comfortable day and night.
We loved it so much that we have already booked it again for next year.
Enjoy

Stayed in Beach Music with family members when we got married on St. John

  • 5 out of 5
When we were looking for a villa to accommodate about 10 family members when we got married on St. John the pictures we saw on the villa web site showing Beach Music was just gorgeous! And we were not disappointed when we arrived. The home was perfect for every family member (ages 5-65). Everything we needed was there and the views were INCREDIBLE!! I couldn't believe that we were staying in such a beautiful, comfy home and we were looking out into the carribean. The location was perfect, we were not far from cruz bay and all the shopping, restaraunts, and night life yet it was a quiet neighborhood where we felt like we were alone. Loved the trail to our own private beach and you are SO CLOSE to the Westin where some of our friends stayed for the wedding. I have wonderful memories of Beach Music and have recommended it to MANY of our friends. Hopefully we will get back there with a group again and rent this villa. It was worth every penny!!

Perfect Vacation House

  • 5 out of 5
It seems that everybody likes to name their house on St. John. Beach Music, as this house is named, offers stunning views of Chocolate Hole, quick access to town and has all the amenities we needed. One morning we paddle boarded right off the backyard and another morning went for a swim and snorkel. There was a stunning array of beautiful fish and a turtle. I was also able to go for a couple of morning runs. Once down to the hotel and another run up the dirt road and up the hill. Both very challenging.

The house itself is quite modern. The backyard decking is beautiful and conducive to lounging and having meals under the gazebo. The pool, albeit small, is just fine for cooling off. I particularly liked that my bedrooms shower offers full views of chocolate hole.

Definitely would recommend for any upscale vacation.

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 (or a bit longer walk for those who wish), 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.
