Spectacular VIew in Lush Surroundings

Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
East End, St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands
The Cottage at Lion's Gate sits high on the hill overlooking Red Hook harbor with a spectacular 270 degree view of Tortola and St. John. In a few minutes you can walk down to Red Hook for shopping, diner, nightlife or to catch a ferry to the other islands. We are close to everything but when you are up here it's all seems so far away.
My husband, Chris, and I have lived on St. Thomas for over 25 years. He came to dive, I came to sail, we met by chance and discovered that we both have a love of the water and the Caribbean life style. Chris is very talented and built a house on the top of the hill in Red Hook. We got married in 1995, and had often talked about making the home, that we love, a vacation villa for guests. So in 2008 we expanded to accommodate visitors in our downstairs studio apartment. We're thrilled wit...

This little cottage was a great find! It's tucked into the mountainside above Red Hook with a secure entrance gate. The cottage was very clean and the decorations had a nice carribian feel. The owners responded quickly to my inquiry and Maxine was most helpful...More

I'm always delighted when guests love my cottage as much as I do. Waking up to our view makes my day all the brighter. Sometimes a parrot comes to say hello. Wish I could sign him to a contract but they are so independent. Please...More

The cottage was amazing....everything you need plus a wonderful view of St John. Conveniently located overlooking Red Hook, close to restaurants, activities, and the American Yacht Harbor.

It was wonderful having guests who love the view as much as I do. The best part is that I can look forward to another visit. The dogs miss the visits as well. They often ask where you went. See you next time Max

About the neighbourhood
'The Cottage' at Lion's Gate is in Red Hook on the Eastern end of St.Thomas. Red Hook is very active. All the day sail boats are here as well as the fishing fleet. The ferry dock is just down the hill from Lion's Gate. You can be on St. John in 20 minutes or be on Tortola in the BVI in 40 minutes.
Right down the hill from us are all the restaurants, everything from Pizza to fine dining. There are also shops and night life. It's all very close but when you are at 'The Cottage' you don't even know it's right down the hill.

All the beaches are nearby. Secret Harbor resort is only 5 minutes away with a restaurant and palm trees for shade. Lindquist is 10 minutes, no amenities just sheer beauty. A bit of a longer ride will bring you to Megan's Bay...
