Description of the Chocolate Hole vacation villa rental
Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6 adults, extra small children if w/parents)

Just minutes from the small town of Cruz Bay, with its restaurants and shopping, ideally situated on St. John's scenic southeastern shore and deliberately faced into the cooling trade winds...Andante is nestled on a shelf carved into the living rock directly above beautiful Hart Bay... high enough to look down on birds in flight... low enough to hear the sea.

Architected in modified Mediterranean-style with accents of native stone, Andante is unusual in that, while ensuring privacy, its panoramic decks offer spectacular views of both sunrise and sunset... a full 270-degrees from glittering St. Thomas east to Rams head!

There are three large bedrooms, all with sea views,private decks, full baths, and air conditioning. A canopied king-size bed and rattan furnishings with a Victorian flair grace the master bedroom along with a private deck. The two guest bedrooms have twin beds easily converted to comfortable kings and private decks.

The villa is tastefully furnished throughout in contemporary tropical rattan,teak and eclectic accents from around the world. Vaulted cypress-beamed ceilings and overhead fans accent the great room, kitchen, and two upper bedrooms.

The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen includes up to date appliances, an electric ceramic top range/convection & conventional oven, microwave, dishwasher, side-by-side refrigerator/freezer with ice maker/dispenser, whole house triple filtered and UV water systems, 'steaming hot' water dispenser, blender, coffee maker, bread maker, and espresso/cappuccino machine. A fully-automatic stainless steel gas grill and outdoor dining area for dinner under the stars is a few steps away on a trellised patio.

The pool and hot tub are strategically cantilevered into the cliff on the west side of the property for maximum views and breeze. Arise in the early morning, frolic in either, and appreciate the dramatic colors of sunrise. In the evening, sip champagne as the sounds of mellow jazz surround you and marvel at the complexity and beauty of the sunset and the clarity of the stars, while you are simultaneously warmed in the hot tub and cooled in the breezes of the ocean.

Andante comes equipped with everything you will need for a relaxed island vacation. Linens, towels, phone, fax and printer,wi fi, hi speed internet, Satellite TV with premium channels and satellite radio in the great room and in each bedroom, DVD players, surround sound multi-zoned stereo (even piped to the pool and hot tub), CD-radio, beach chairs and coolers, and an extensive selection of books and music all await you. You need bring only your bathing suit and a few clothes for forays into town.

A private rustic path winds down to the sparsely-peopled pebble and coral beach below, offering fabulous snorkeling at one the best spots on the island. A left turn at the bottom of the hill takes you for a tranquil swim in nearby Chocolate Hole. The famous north shore beaches are but a few minutes drive away for long relaxing days spent at the beach.

If 'chilling' is what you seek in your ultimate vacation, Andante is so self-contained that it is possible to 'hole up' in the villa for several days at a time, without the need to leave home. Andante is perfect for that first or second honeymoon. If you do venture out, the world-renowned beaches of the north shore and the boutiques and restaurants (ranging from funky to gourmet) of the tiny town of Cruz Bay are less than a ten-minute drive away. A fifteen-minute, seven-dollar ferry ride brings you to the bustling shopping and restaurants of St. Thomas.

The word 'Andante' defines a moderately slow, relaxed, and leisurely tempo in music. At Andante, our guests have every opportunity to slow down, rest, relax, rejuvenate, and renew.
