LIME IN DE COCONUT VILLA is an ocean front paradise located just steps from the beautiful Caribbean Water in the much-desired Chocolate Hole Bay. This is just a short drive to Cruz bay where you can find great dining and shopping.
The Villa lies directly on the water, there are no treacherous hills to 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 and get you quickly into deeper water. 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. All snorkeling gear along with kayaks, and stand up paddleboards are all included for your use anytime you’d like to enhance your days fun.
A Bali hut just feet from the water is available for massages/deep muscle therapy.
You will enjoy our masseuse’s services while experiencing the tranquility and beauty of being oceanfront. 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. 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 gorgeous custom designed and decorated tropical resort villa.
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.

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
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!!
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.
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!
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!
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!
My husband and I along with our close friends just stayed at this magnificent villa and will absolutely be back again!!! We’ve been taking a vacation with friends for over a decade to this Island that we all love. This villa was immaculately clean and well cared for. Beautiful linens, towels, bedding, well stocked kitchen and even a bar that was fully stocked…we were truly impressed!! I have to say it’s even nicer than the pictures… and the pictures are breathtaking! Chocolate Hole is an absolutely lovely area, only a five -minute drive to Cruz Bay town. We previously rented a villa on Ditleff Point, it seemed everyday was a windstorm. We also rented in Coral bay and weren’t happy with the long drive to Cruz Bay where most of the shops, restaurants and bars are. Beware also: there are many villas that say they are oceanfront—but your line of site to see the water includes seeing other villas and impediments. Additionally, some that say they are on the water don’t mention that to get to the water you put your life at risk trying to climb down rocky cliffs…not so great when you have a few drinks and are already unsteady.
Lime in de Coconut is an absolutely beautiful villa that is directly on the water. The water views are spectacular and the sunsets are amazing!!!
The layout of the house is very open, and the large windows capture the beautiful outdoors. We loved sitting outside in the evening, laughing drinking and hearing the crashing waves. It’s almost magical!! The owners provide a lot: beach chairs that you can grab and take, beach towels in a carry bag, coolers and even sunscreen.
The large, swimming pool has a beautiful, soothing cascading waterfall and overlooks the ocean. We could see and hear the crashing waves. The super large hot tub was a nice treat after swimming and there is a small refrigerator and bar. We loved indulging in snacks and drinks by the pool and hot tub without having to run back into the house.
A few steps away is the ocean. The natural rock platforms made the access way easy to get into the water. There are kayaks, stand up paddle boards, snorkeling equipment…everything needed to have a lot of fun for the day. We loved sitting under the palapas having drinks and what’s really great is the privacy! Yes, it’s very private –no other people but us!
The Bali hut was also great, and we did indulge in massages with a private masseuse.
Ahhh…what a vacation!!!! We can’t wait to go back!!! Thank you Marykae and Al.
The property was very close to beaches restaurants and shopping. There are three very comfortable well equipped bedrooms with baths. The pool and view was amazing, the hot tub felt great after a day is scuba diving. The out door tables and chairs were great for eating outside and relaxing .
Our group of 5 absolutely loved our stay at Lime in de Coconut. The villa is beautifully updated, and well appointed. Bedrooms are large and the beds are very comfy.
From the time we first set eyes on the picturesque view of Chocolate Hole we knew we had chosen the right home to visit while in St. John. We ate breakfast outside every morning taking in the view and the breeze, and it was the perfect way to start our day. The villa is equipped with everything you need; kayaks, paddle boards, snorkel gear, water shoes (the beach is a coral bottom), beach chairs, beach towels, coolers, sunscreen, and so much more.
The property manager, Colby, was right on time to pick us up from the Cruz Bay ferry, and was very helpful and responsive throughout our stay. He helped us schedule a day charter through Over The Line charters, and we had an amazing day motoring through the BVI.
The villa is located a short drive away from downtown Cruz Bay, and three local grocery stores, but is also very secluded and private. It truly offers the best of both worlds.
We had such a fantastic time on St. John it was hard to leave, especially because of The Lime. We'll definitely be back soon!
Our party of six had a wonderful visit at "The Lime"!! This is a very UNIQUE villa in a one of a kind setting DIRECTLY ON TOP OF THE REEF! We were amazed at how the deck of this villa is literally on top of the waves yet steps to our own private reef for snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, rock climbing- you name it! We felt drawn to this villa due to our love for the water and the amazing sea life beneath. No other villa on St. John can offer this kind of oceanfront setting. We spent most of our days at the pool or in the ocean. We hardly left the villa except for nights out to dinner in Cruz Bay. We really enjoyed Waterfront Bistro and Longboard. Woody's was great for a quick happy hour and we all loved Ronnie's pizza for take out. We hit most of the beaches with Francis being the group favorite. For four couples, this is an awesome villa as each bedroom is separate and has it's own flavor. The owners went out of their way to ensure that we were satisfied and had everything to make our stay relaxing and worry free. Would not hesitate to highly recommend The Lime and cannot wait to book another stay with these guys! Everything was as advertised as promised and surpassed all of our expectations. Thank you Paul and Joan, Jessica and Rob.
Snorkel equipment, 2 paddleboards, and 4 -6 kayaks provide at no charge. Reef fishing is cautioned. The fish may contain Ciguatera and are not edible. Sea welks are abundant however.
