Stay Local.. Stay Stonehouse! Robert and Joanie deLugo have lived on the Stonehouse property since 1983 and have been hosting vacation travelers since 2005. They both have extensive experience with vacation travelers! Robert is originally from St. Thomas and met Joanie when she moved to the Virgin islands in 1982. Robert's family dates well back in Virgin Islands history and the main downtown U.S. Post Office is named after his father, Alvaro deLugo.

Robert has worked in the V.I. aviation industry since the 1970's. First for Antilles Airboats operated by Captain Charlie Blair and his American actress wife Maureen O'Hara, then for Pan Am as well as 18 years as the Virgin Islands Station Manager for Delta Airlines.

Joanie is originally from Canada and Cape Cod. Since relocating to St. Thomas in 1981 Joanie has enjoyed many years crewing on charter yachts around the British Virgin Islands, managing a marina and charter yacht center and 12 years as the local representative for the international travel company Apple Vacations. Robert and Joanie now both work and play at Stonehouse and enjoy traveling to Argentina, Chile, Paris and Cape Cod.

Joan deLugo purchased this apartment in 1996

Wonderfully private, fully furnished, great views - Great Stay at Larimar!

  • 5 of 5
The Larimar was the perfect location for our 5 day stay in St. Thomas. The apartment had everything we needed along with incredible views of Secret Harbor and the Caribbean. Having beach towels, cooler, and beach chairs available made our trips to the beach easy and saved us money on beach chair rentals. Stonehouse is convenient to Red Hook, the ferry and many of the great beaches of St. Thomas. Joanie and Robert were wonderful hosts and provided all the information and accommodations we needed to navigate and enjoy St. Thomas. Providing the US Customs forms in advance was a big time saver at the airport! We highly recommend Larimar and look forward to staying here on our next visit to St. Thomas.

second home

  • 5 of 5
This was my second stay at Stonehouse. Last year my wife and I took Sunflower which is the studio with a fantastic deck with a hammock! This year we took Larimar. A perfect one bedroom. The view from this place is unbelievable. A 180 degree view of Nazareth Bay and the Caribbean Ocean. Some days you can see St. Croix in the horizon. The host of this excellent rental are Joanie and Robert. I now feel as I have found the perfect place for my St. Tom visits. I have been visiting the USVI's regularly since '92 and have stayed many places. This is where I will be staying when I visit.

Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I really enjoyed staying here on our first trip to the Virgin Islands. Bottom line: We'd stay here again for sure! The views are amazing, and its just a short trip down to what we believe to be the best beach on the island, Secret Harbour. Joanie was especially accommodating upon arrival. Thank you both for allowing us to stay at your beautiful property!

Perfect Home Base!

  • 4 of 5
What a great vacation! This was an awesome apartment, which served as the backdrop for our Caribbean vacation. Joanie was helpful from the start, connecting with me via phone and email, answering many of my questions before I even asked them. She provided car service connections to get us from the airport to the apartment, tips & tricks for the island, and links to activities.

Upon arriving, Joanie gave us a lay of the land (including a mini tour of the area the next day), and even scheduled some time to personally take us to the grocery store! It was so nice to be able to get some groceries for breakfast and lunch- the apartment kitchen was compact, but had everything we needed. And, there was even a gas grill outside that was perfect for grilling! After nearly 6 months of temperatures below freezing, we were definitely appreciative of the grill. :)

The apartment overall was good. It was compact, but perfect for our home-base. We did a lot of excursions, including a few days at Sunset Harbor (a 5-minute walk down the hill)- the beach bar/grill was awesome, Magens Bay (stand-up paddle boarding is a must-try!), St John (amazing snorkeling and hiking), a day-sail, and many adventures/meals in Red Hook. The flow of the apartment was great- it was heaven to have the Caribbean breeze blowing through (an air conditioner is in the unit, but we preferred the breeze), and the balcony & view was incredible! I loved starting my morning with coffee and reading on the balcony lounge chair. The bathroom was a bit tight, and showers needed to be very quick before the hot water ran out. But, after a day in the sun and heat, it wasn’t the worst thing to get a shot of cold water.

All of the additional amenities made our trip easy. Joanie made sure to mention the beach towels before we departed, which made packing a bit lighter. She also provided beach chairs, a beach bag, snorkel equipment, floating noodles, and a cooler- we used all of these on our beach days at Secret Harbor, at Magens Bay, and even took the snorkel gear over to St John. The cooler was perfect for packing lunch and extra bottle of water. The wifi was certainly used as well. The only thing missing was the extra sunscreen we needed- the 2 of us went through 2 full bottles. :)

Larimar, and the Stonehouse units in general, was a perfect location, an easy 10 minute walk to Red Hook (recommend daytime walking only)/ $4 cab ride per person, and had the most gorgeous views. Facing South/West, we had

Owner's Response: Jamie and Nate! Thanks for the great trip report! And Congratulations on your engagement while you were here! I am still picturing that beautiful sparkly ring!
The separate hot water tank for Larimar is 10 gallons! I hope you weren't taking too long showers! Ha Ha!

Great Two Weeks

  • 5 of 5
What a view, from first thing in morning to last at night!
A wonderful two weeks. Perfect weather, 82 day, 70's nite and always a breeze. Never felt uncomfortable. Larimar was perfect for the two of us. Everything we needed, and Joanie and Robert were always available to answer any questions. We had a rental car, and our daily routine was to drive down the hill to Secret Harbour at 9 to 10 AM, return to Larimar for lunch, and back to the beach about 3 until 5PM. Location is very convenient. 2 minute drive to beach, 5 minutes to Red Hook. 3 minutes to Food Mart. Used grill for a couple of nights, had good dinners at Mim's, XO, and Room with a View. Went to St. John for the day at Cinnamon Bay. Was on St. John 30 years ago, so was disappointed with how it has built up. Much too busy for the amount of space available. Spend two days at Magens Bay which should not be missed. One day was a weekend, and one mid week and never noticed a difference in the numbers using the beach. Water is calm and warm, beach long, facilities great.
The pictures of Larimar are true, all equipment you need, a very comfortable bed and you will find it is a great unit for two for a restful, enjoyable stay. Could not recommend more highly.
Thanks Joanie and Robert!
