Poi Pu St John Villa - great views & total privacy
Located in Chocolate Hole, with a Southern view of the Caribbean Sea, POI PU is ideal for the family or couples traveling together. The secluded location surrounded by beautiful tropical flower gardens lets you enjoy a very private vacation. POI PU is located just 5 minutes from the town of Cruz Bay and its eclectic choices for duty free shopping and fine dining. Another 10-15 minutes will take you to the world famous beaches on the north shore within the VI National Park.
Upon entering the villa you will be taken with the open architecture of the great room, dining area with seating for four and full kitchen with stainless appliances and all of the features and amenities for preparing snacks to full meals. The breakfast counter provides an area for socializing with the cook while meals are prepared. The double doors off the inside dining area open to the side deck where you will find another table for alfresco dining for six while overlooking the gazebo (with a hammock!) and pool. The gas BBQ grill is located close by for preparing burgers and hot dogs to steaks and seafood.
Opening the three double doors around the perimeter of the villa will virtually double the entire living space with the addition of the wrap around decks with lounge chairs and casual seating. The open beam ceilings with elegant ceiling fans will insure that the cooling tropical trade wind breezes are circulated throughout the villa. With the perimeter doors open you will enjoy the commanding views of Chocolate Hole and the Caribbean Sea from the inner comfort of the villa.
The family room offers a flat screen television with Cable TV and DVD Player and an audio sound system providing casual entertainment in a relaxing environment. The comfortable couch converts to a queen sleeper sofa for accommodations for 7-8 guests.
There are two air conditioned bedrooms with queen beds located on the main level. The beds are each cloaked with elegant mosquito netting and feature ceiling fans over the beds. Each bedroom has an adjacent half bath and share a large and impressive native stone shower with dual shower heads. The third bedroom is located in a large loft and features a queen size bed and tastefully appointed casual seating with TV and DVD Player.TripAdvisor property ID 2286246...Read more

My family and friends rented Poi Pu for a week this past June. We had an amazing time. We loved the rock double shower. Several nights we cooked dinner and everyone ate out on the deck what a beautiful experience. It was also located close to some of the most beautiful beaches ever. The house was very clean, great amenities, cozy, and we were comfortable. If we needed anything we could call the property management and they were prompt to offer advice or their services if needed. It was also the little things that made our stay like the beach accessories that we were able to use instead of having to rent them daily. Those costs could have added up quickly. A beautiful home with a beautiful view. We can't wait to return. Also we were traveling with our 10 month old daughter. She took her very first steps at Poi Pu. We made lasting memories for our family.

The villa is wide open, very spacious. Open the big doors and you let the cool breezes in. There are always breezes at Poi Pu. It's great to have your own pool right there, even if you have spent the day at the beach. It's close to town for shopping and dinning, but there is nothing like dinning right there on the deck with the breezes and all those stars. I will be going back it's just the best place to be with friends. Carol

We had a wonderful and relaxing time staying at Poi Pu in St. John. It was very comfortable and spacious for all six of us staying there. We enjoyed the pool in the back yard on those warm nights and loved sitting on the deck and watching the cruise ships sail by in the distance overlooking the ocean. It was a great experience. I would definitely go back again.

We had an excellent stay at Pui Pu. The house is a nice short distance outside of Cruz Bay to keep things calm and quiet but not too far to drive into town for the nightlife and shopping. The best part of the house is the openness of the house. Open up the 3 sets of French doors and you get are beautiful view of chocolate hole and a cool morning breeze. Being on the southern side of the island you get a pretty steady breeze to keep things cool for the morning/evening. Don’t kid yourself, during the day there is nowhere that’s cool, unless you are either in the pool or in the ocean. You could hide away in one of the 2 A/C bedrooms, but then there is no point in going to the USVI. We really enjoyed our stay with a great group of friends and look forward to going back in the near future.
