For your enjoyment, we provide kayaks, stand up paddle boards, snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, fishing poles/gear right at the waters edge, you don't have to rent somewhere it's all here. The Villa lies directly on the water, there are no treacherous hills or dangerous paths to navigate or climb down to access the waterfront. The floor to ceiling sliders in the family room capture spectacular views of the beautiful Caribbean Sea. There is a private beach/waterfront area that is not shared with other homes. Palapas and lounge chairs with small tables are scattered throughout the waterfront area for your enjoyment. You'll also find hammocks for relaxing and experiencing the tranquil outdoors.The natural reefs are home to amazing sea life and since this area is undisturbed, the snorkeling is considered to be one of the best spots on the island.

A Bali hut just feet from the water is available for massages/deep muscle therapy and yoga workouts. If you'd like a massage or facial, we have a masseuse /licensed facial esthetician that will come to the villa for a poolside or bali hut treatment. You'll have a very relaxing experience with the tranquility and beauty of being oceanfront and listening to the crashing waves.

Our masseuse is considered one of the best in the Virgin Islands!!

The extra large salt-water infinity pool with a cascading waterfall overlooks the beautiful ocean. You can hear the crashing waves while swimming and relaxing on the many lounge chairs that surround the pool. Set the mood with music of your choice on the Sonos system. Outdoor surround speakers create a wonderful listening experience. In the evening, the pool is lit up with soft lighting creating a relaxing ambiance. The oversized hot tub is steps away.

The evening sunsets are spectacular with explosions of red, orange and yellow. The sky is filled with beauty and a warm peacefulness abounds. Yes, the sunsets are amazing!!

About Marykae & Al

We love the quiet calm of this little island. St. John is a magical piece of this Earth full of amazing blessings from God and nature. We know you will catch the feel good vibes of this space, too! This is our escape from reality-haaaa!! Come on down and hang out with the locals for some Limin', at de Lime in de Coconut!

Marykae & Al purchased this villa in 2016

Why Marykae & Al chose Estate Chocolate Hole and Great Cruz Bay

We chose Chocolate Hole for many reasons. We wanted to be located directly on the ocean. When we walked into Lime in de Coconut we knew we had found home! We are just 25 feet from a reef just teaming with gorgeous tropical fish and sea turtles. This location is just minutes to groceries, shopping and incredible dining. We love it here, we know you will too!!

What makes this villa unique

Since the hurricane, most of the island remains without internet/wifi. Lime in de Coconut now has internet and wifi. Additionally, we are one of the very few villa that boasts a WHOLE HOUSE GENERATOR! The power goes out quite often on this island and trust us- YOU NEED A GENERATOR TO SAVE YOUR GROCERIES AND PROVIDE A/C IN SUMMER MONTHS. Not many villas can offer you amazing snorkeling, kayaking, paddleboarding and swimming without stepping foot off the property! Our guests tend to stay right at the property for the majority of their stay because of the AMAZING FREE AMENITIES!!! This is a most unique resort setting for St. John. This villa has been professionally decorated to feel more like a comfortable, warm, high end resort home instead of the typical box hotel approach. We have extended every creature comfort possible at no extra charge to you because this is how it should be!! You will love it hear- we guarantee it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Paul & Joan-Just a quick note to thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!! We were a little skeptical about renting sight unseen as in the past have had disappointments. We were more than excited when we stepped foot in your villa. It was immaculate! Your home is beautiful and the many touches you provided for guest comfort was so appreciated! Every spot in the home was thoughtfully decorated and inspiring. We are planning our next trip and will only stay at Lime in de Coconut villa!

Beautiful villa with gorgeous views and all the amenities you would need.

  • 5 of 5

We went here with 11 people and the first thing we all said when we walked in was that the villa and views were actually BETTER than what the pictures online portrayed. The kitchen and sitting areas are open and large and fit us all comfortably. We all made full use of the pool and hot tub as well as the other lounge areas and hammocks. The owners supply the house with all the recreational supplies you could possibly need from beach chairs, towels and coolers for outings to kayaks, paddle boards and snorkel gear. The owners and care takers were easily accessible and responded quickly to the few questions we had. The only thing I would say we would have liked was one more week in this beautiful villa!

We were a group of friends who stayed in this wonderful villa.

I highly recommend this property, it's right on the beautiful Caribbean Water and to get to it is only steps away from the villa. I have to say this beautiful home is on an absolutely spectacular site!! The snorkeling right outside the home was fantastic, it was the best that we experienced anywhere on the island! All the snorkeling gear as well as kayaks, boogie boards and SUPS were provided for us which was WONDERFUL.

We also loved the beautiful pool area with those incredible views. The home was very spacious, beautifully decorated and had spectacular views. All the rooms were very private and the family room was massive with 2 very comfortable seating areas and a dining area. I have to emphasize that if you want breathtaking views and to be on the water as we did, this property is a home run! It was also a very quick drive to Cruz Bay Town which has all the bars, restaurants and shopping. We spent a lot of evenings at a bar called "The Landing" lots of fun, great people and live music in the evening.

Everything about our stay was perfect, we couldn't have chosen a better place to spend our yearly get together. Everything we needed or could have wanted was already there.

My family and I stayed at the “Lime In De Coconut Villa” May 12th – 19th, 2018, and had a fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is nestled into the hillside overlooking the bay, with absolutely spectacular views! We walked into a lovely great room with water on all 3 sides of the house, it was simply breathtaking! We sat there for hours staring at the views of the ocean bay & the stars, and great time enjoying the pool and jacuzzi. The home is warm, inviting, immaculate, and spacious, the perfect place to relax and unwind.

Every detail of their decorating is well appreciated bringing all the comforts beyond home throughout. The kitchen arrangements alone will impress you. We came and experienced million-dollar views and left with million-dollar smiles.

Dining was another treat in town with many wonderful restaurants to choose from.

The people we met were all friendly and hospitable. Exploring the beaches was lots of fun. There are many scenic lookouts where you can stop to take amazing pictures.

The owners Marykae & Al were great to work with and very responsive. The property managers Colby and Nellie are also lovely people. Nellie greeted us at the car barge and escorted us to the Villa. Nellie will go through the rooms with helpful explanations as she is well-acquainted with the property. Her patience is impressive. Don’t be afraid to call her for anything. She is attentive to details and really wants you to enjoy your stay and showed us extra patience as my husband and I are not electronic wizards.

We are definitely coming here again but with more family members as we love this property.

This is a great home on a beautiful island.

Paradise found!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our family vacation at this marvelous villa, there were 3 generations ranging in age from 3 to 76.

All of us had such a great time!!!

Lime in de Coconut Villa way surpassed our expectations, it was more beautiful in person, which is hard to believe given the photos. The views, furnishings, and amenities were simply first class! It was our 1st time on St. John and you would think that we would want to explore the island but there was so much fun to be had here we ended up enjoying the pool and waterfront area for most of the day. Our young kids enjoyed splashing in the shallow waters at the small beach area, while the older ones were at the pool sunning and swimming. The snorkeling was amazing, we got to see sea turtles, octopus and lots of colorful fish. The pool and the oceanfront area are in very close proximity so that even though we may be enjoying different activities we were still very close to each other. The sunsets here are spectacular, we took lots of pictures!!

To get to town, it’s only about a 10-minute drive. There are lots of boutique shops and restaurants.

This was a truly wonderful vacation that our entire family loved!! It was very difficult to finally have to pack up and leave.

We hope to be able to get the family together again and come back!!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!!!

Truly Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Lime in de Coconut villa!!!

While researching the various vacation homes for rent we were all intrigued by this property. When we finally agreed that this was the place, we had high expectations given the pictures and great reviews. When we arrived, we surveyed the property in absolute awe. We never could've imagined the true beauty of this sanctuary, and surely, no pictures or words could ever describe the full magnitude of the experience.

The property is absolutely stunning and very private. It is literally your own exclusive resort. The views of the ocean and sunset are breathtaking. The infinity pool with the gentle waterfall is a relaxing, fun place to spend the day. The kayaks are ready to jump in and paddle out at a moments notice, and the local family of sea turtles are often there waiting to greet you.

Highly recommended is the snorkeling which is outstanding. We snorkeled daily for hours. The amount of stunning marine life was overwhelming and it was an experience my children and I will cherish forever. I should also mention that the house has the snorkel gear, water shoes, SUP's,& boogie boards for everyones enjoyment.

This was great for us, as we didn't have to rent any gear.

In closing I would also like to recognize the wonderful home itself. There were 8 of us total and everyone was accommodated without feeling crowded. The expansive deck is amazing and is perfectly positioned for evening sunsets and midnight star gazing. The rooms are beautiful and very tastefully decorated.. Not to mention, the wonderful amenities. There wasn't a thing this place didn't have.

In summary, I have been to St John 5 times and this was, BY FAR, the best Maybe one of the best vacations ever. Thank you to our wonderful hosts Marykae & Al.

Private paradise directly on the water

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the chance to stay at Lime In De Coconut villa for a family birthday celebration and our trip was nothing short of spectacular!! I am reluctant to highly recommend “Lime In De Coconut” due to the fact that it may always be booked up in the future and not available for us to come back ;) My group has stayed at some very nice villas and this is right there with the best of them. From the very first email to the owner, I knew they were going to be wonderful to work with. Super quick responses, extremely accommodating. The Villa can only be described as a gift from heaven tucked away hidden from site and extremely private. One thing that sets this villa apart is the fact that it’s right on the water and totally private which is uncommon for St. John. I honestly cannot think of a single negative thing to mention. You cannot go wrong with this villa!
