Lion's Gate Getaway sits high on the hill overlooking Red Hook harbor and has a spectacular 270 degree view of St. John and Tortola. In a few minutes you can walk into Red Hook for shopping, dinner, drinks and night life or catch a ferry to the other islands.
My husband Chris and I have lived on St. Thomas for 20 years. Chris came to dive and I to sail. We met and found we both have a love of the water and the Caribbean life style. Chris built this house on top of a hill and now we have expanded it to give our guests a private tropical setting that is perfect for a romantic getaway. When you wake up in the morning the hummingbirds will greet you and share your view. The porch captures the Caribbean life style with it's cool breezes and view of the sea and did I mention the birds?.

Management response:

I'm so glad they enjoyed my apartment. They were very busy and I hope they come back so I can get to know them a bit more. Perfect guests, they took advantage of all St. Thomas has to offer.

Lions Gate is minutes from the town of Red Hook, at the top of a steep hill. We stayed in the studio, the best part is the wrap around veranda with gorgeous views of the harbor, St. John's and Tortola. The studio has a full and well appointed kitchen.

Max and Chris were wonderful, ensuring we had everything we needed and giving us recommendations for beaches and dining. We were very comfortable in the cottage and will be back with teenage kids and rent both...
