About the property

Waterfront Villa, infinity pool with Waterfall, Oversize Hot Tub, Sunsets

LIME IN DE COCONUT VILLA is an ocean front very private paradise located just steps from the beautiful Caribbean Water in much-desired Chocolate Hole Bay. For your enjoyment we provide kayaks, stand up paddle boards, snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, fishing poles/gear..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. It has a private beach/waterfront area that is not shared with other homes. There are palapas and lounge chairs with small tables throughout the waterfront area for your enjoyment. The newly constructed natural stone piers (walkways) are wonderful to view sea life, fish from and will get you quickly into deeper water for a refreshing swim. 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, we have a masseuse that will come to the bali hut . 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 edge pool overlooks the beautiful ocean. You can hear the crashing waves while swimming and relax 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. Cascading into the pool is a soothing waterfall. In the evening, the pool and waterfall are lit up with soft lighting creating a relaxing ambiance. The oversized hot tub is steps away. The outdoor bar has a refrigerator for keeping drinks and snacks cool and fresh.

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

The home is a custom designed and decorated with a tropical flair. The great room is a huge expansive area with 2 large, comfortable seating group areas, 2 bar areas, a large dining area and a desk area. A back wall of glass sliders allow for spectacular views of the beautiful Caribbean Water that can be seen from the entire room. This area leads into the large, custom gourmet kitchen. This is an open concept design great for entertaining and being among your guests while cooking. We have a Keurig as well as a Mr. Coffee for coffee lovers. Sliders from the Great Room lead to an expansive deck area with a grill and large outdoor dining area for enjoying your meals while viewing the Caribbean Sea and listening to the crashing waves.

A 50ft yacht is also available for day and sunset cruises. This is a real treat to experience and is offered for you and your guests private enjoyment!!

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!! Our weiner dogs love it here, too!! Love chasing those lizards!! 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 Cruz Bay

We chose Chocolate Hole for many reasons. We wanted to be located directly on the ocean with our boat in front of the property. 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

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!

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!

Property is absolutely stunning. And the owners are amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been blessed to have been able to visit some of the most beautiful locales, and stay at some of the finest accommodations in the world. Hands-down, Lime In De Coconut is the absolute best property we have ever enjoyed. Additionally, Marykae and Al are the most attentive, and detail oriented property owners we have encountered. 5 stars does not do them, or the property justice!

Rarely does a property completely meet the expectations built by the pictures and description…and this far exceeded those! The property is simply breathtaking, both inside and out.

Offering a helpful review when all you can say is “Wow!” is difficult, but I’ll do my best…

Our stay was from 3/25/17 thru 4/1/17 - 4 adults, 3 kids, ages 7, 8, and 9. The home itself is as well equipped as our own. (Trust me when I say you will not be in need of anything that the home isn’t already equipped with.) You’ll obviously need to purchase your staple food items, but that is it. We used Meredith at “St. John Provisions” to stock the house with our food for the week. You order in advance, and all of your items are at the house upon arrival. There is a “pay it forward” system (leave what you buy and don’t drink) for adult beverages, which came in handy when the girls decided they wanted drinks with ingredients we hadn’t ordered. Happy wives…

Chocolate Hole is not only incredibly beautiful, but full of marine life. While snorkeling from the house, we saw turtles, cuttlefish, lobster, octopus, barracuda, and many, many different types of tropical fish. Bring your GoPro or underwater camera, you’ll want it! As you’d expect there are sea urchins. The house is equipped with 2 body boards. So, if you are snorkeling with younger children I suggest using those to get them past the shallow area and it allows them, and you, a resting spot if you want to explore the entire bay. There are also 6 kayaks and 3 SUPs, which make for a lot of fun. The kids will enjoy the hermit crabs, lizards, and iguanas that roam the property. You’ll want water shoes when walking the paths, but plenty are provided; as well as 7-10 sets of mask, fins, and snorkels. On top of that, beach chairs, coolers, and beach umbrellas are provided for your daily beach excursions. Again, everything you need is there.

Absolutely stunning, from start to finish; both house and owners! While we’ll always feel blessed for the experience, I’m certain we’d be disappointed by staying anywhere else.

Gorgeous, lovely and full of Good

  • 5 of 5

We had a beyond beautiful time at Lime in de Coconut. Perfectly situated and stocked this home became a place of rest and a time of reassurance that life is so much more than even our most above average days would have us to believe. Thank you Marykae and Al for sharing your piece of paradise with us!

Best Vacation ever - Cannot wait to return

  • 5 of 5

We went to St John with another family - our first time on the island, how lucky we were to select Lime in De Coconut - it exceeded all expecatations. On arrival just walking out on the deck and seeing the view took my breath away! The pool was a huge hit with everyone and being able to enter the water right in front of the villa as simply amazing. We snorkeled right outside and saw plenty of sealife. We also took the kayaks and explored. Everything was provided from sea shoes, snorkels and beautiful linens and towels. The washer and dryer were top of the range and made a huge difference to our stay with 5 children! The ages of the children are from 8-13 and this villa was perfect for all of us to have our own space but to be able to come together in the fabulous main living area for meals, games and endless laughter. We rented jeeps and explored the stunning beaches, even a couple of days of rain didn't stop the fun and the sightseeing. Cruz Bay has amazing places to eat, our favorites being Morgans Mango and the Beach Bar. We had a wonderful days sailing with Nate on "No Worries Mon" and we had Chef Ted who cooked us a simply magnificent Thanksgiving meal. Thank you to Marykate and Al for being so communicative in the lead up to the vacation and for answering all my questions - they went above and beyond and we cannot wait to return to St John Lime in De Coconut!

Look no further!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 LOVED this villa which is directly on the water. That was the most important feature on our list!

We are a family from teens to adults in their 70's and we had the best vacation!!

Easy access from the house to the ocean was first and foremost for us.

Our parents in their 70's had no problem getting to the ocean and really enjoyed being by the water.

The teens loved going swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling and just having fun in the ocean!!

The pool is beautiful, it lights up at night, and the gentle waterfall was very serene.

The kids enjoyed the outdoor music system and hanging out in the hot tub in the evening.

The outdoor bar with refrigerator was so convenient for drinks and snacks.

I have to mention that the sunsets here are absolutely breathtaking!!!

Yes, this is paradise and we couldn't have chosen a better villa on St John!!

Beautiful Home & Location! Want to Be There Now!

  • 5 of 5

We received an email from the new owner about a week before we arrived. Incredibly wonderful and warm couple (Marykae & Al). They want this vacation to be your best ever and do everything possible to make it just that!

We enjoyed being right on the water so much more than we expected. Yes, we ventured out to the North Shore beaches and into Cruz Bay for a little shopping. Beyond that, we spent most of our time at the villa - either in the pool or in Chocolate Hole!

The snorkeling right in front of the house is pretty awesome! The variety of fish is great. We saw a turtle, an octopus, a few small barracudas and even a spotted eagle ray - a highlight of our trip!

It was so great having access to the kayaks SUPs, and snorkeling gear. We used them quite often!

The brand new towels and sheets were terrific! The beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed playing cards and games every evening at the table. The indoor living and eating space was really terrific!

Thanks again to Marykae and Al - they happened to be on St. John when we were there so we invited them over for a drink so we could meet them! We wish you many years of happiness in your new home!
