Lion's Gate studio was a lovely spot for our 5 night stay on St. Thomas after spending time on a friend's sailboat in St. Croix. The view was spectacular from high on the hill, and with the cooling breeze, we never needed to use the A/C. There were several beautiful beaches nearby (5 min drive) and there were lawn chairs & a small cooler available to take along. The apartment had everything we needed and was pleasing to the eye. A lovely veranda wrapped around two sides. The stone shower was huge. Recommend renting a car, there is small parking area at the top of the steep driveway. You can walk down the hill to Red Hook, but can you walk back up? Not me. This was our first time to Red Hook; there are some restaurants, bars, a few gift shops, drugstore, bank and a marina. Max and Chris can supply local knowledge about the area and beaches. This was a charming experience and we would certainly stay here again.
