Overview

East End Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Studio Apartment, 1 Bath (Sleeps 1-2)

Lions Gate Getaway is a private studio apartment in a lush, tropical setting, humming birds share your 270 degree view of St. John, Tortola and Red Hook Harbor. In just a few minutes you can walk into Red Hook for shopping, dinner, drinks and night life or catch the ferries to St. John and the BVI.

The spacious porch is a perfect way to enjoy your first cup of coffee or to sit back in the evening and watch the colors change over the islands with a cool beverage in your hand as the breeze passes by.

My husband Chris and I have lived on St. Thomas for over 20 years. He came to dive, I came to sail. We met and discovered we both had a love of the water and the Caribbean life style. Chris built this house on the top of the hill, and now we have expanded it to accommodate guests in our apartment that captures the Caribbean life style. We look forward to helping you enjoy your vacation in any way we can. Just ask for local tips on restaurants and activities.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

Perfect Perch for Us

  • 5 of 5
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.

The relaxing getaway we were looking for

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week here and can't wait to plan our next visit! Starting your day with coffee on the porch with the most amazing views was easy to get used to. The apartment was well furnished, with everything we could possibly need. You won't find a better view in Red Hook. The walk down the hill to town wasn't too bad at all. You are so close to lots of restaurants, but I definitely recommend renting a car. We spent a lot of time at Sapphire beach, which was a 5 minute drive away and a relatively quiet beach. You have to book a sailing trip with Max, because it is hands down the best thing you can do on your visit. We spent our mornings and evenings on the porch taking in the views and enjoying the company of Eva, the resident pup. The bird watching from Lion's Gate is pretty good also. Anything we needed, Max helped us with right away. We are already anticipating our next visit, it is absolutely a slice of paradise at Lion's Gate, you won't be disappointed.

Our St. Thomas Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Lion's Gate Getaway for a week, and we absolutely loved it! It is so charming and comfortable, and in the perfect location. The house is on a hill, and the cool breezes that blow through the house are so wonderful. No air conditioning was needed the whole week! The queen sized bed was comfortable with high quality linens and pillows. The kitchen was well appointed with every needed appliance and amenity imaginable. And the stone shower was enormous! The water pressure was great also. Our favorite feature was the covered front porch that looks over the beautiful harbor. We enjoyed just sitting out there with our coffee and taking in the stunning views from all angles. Also, it was very convenient to be located in Red Hook, as there are multiple restaurants and bars all up and down the main street, and the Inter-island ferry dock is right across the street. The owner, Max, is also a master captain and has her own business taking out guests for day sail and snorkel trips on her sailboat. This was the highlight of our vacation! The sailing experience was exhilarating, and the snorkeling sight that she took us to in St. John was THE BEST snorkeling we have ever experienced! Thank you for the wonderful adventure. We will not forget your wonderful house, or your gracious hospitality!

Perfect Setting for Beach Lovers

  • 5 of 5
Lion's Gate Getaway is a cozy studio with a long veranda that offers a stunning view of Red Hook Harbor, with St. John in the distance. The place sits on a hilltop surrounded by tropical vegetation, and there is always a delightful breeze. Max and Chris are gracious hosts, always eager to please - ready to answer any question, provide directions, or replace a battery in a remote :-)! The studio is large for such a place, but still has room for only two people. I recommended "girls getaway," however, because Max has recently added a one bedroom unit on the other side of the driveway. It is also lovely, and the two places together would accommodate 3-4 girlfriends. The beaches close by (Lindquist and Secret Harbor) were very nice -- trees on the beach for shade and crystal blue waters for swimming and snorkeling. If you are up for a day of sailing and snorkeling outside of St. Thomas, Max does day sails on her boat, Lou, and she typically takes the guests to St. John for snorkeling. Also good restaurants in the Red Hook area -- some right there on the Harbor and others only a short drive away. All in all, this was a very enjoyable trip -- perfect place to relax and bask in the sun and water.

Gorgeous spot

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I rented this beautiful studio for our recent trip to St. Thomas. We couldn't have selected a better spot! The studio is located up the hill from Red Hook. Even when it felt too warm near sea level, the breeze cooled the studio to idyllic temperatures. I loved lounging in the outdoor chairs with my book (morning, midday and evening) and we couldn't have asked for nicer sleeping weather- no A/C required.

There are many convenient dining options Red Hook. Chris was also kind enough to drive us to the food center not too far away and we enjoyed cooking at home and dining on the deck. There aren't too many beaches within walking distance so I would recommend renting a car, if possible. There are always taxis at the ferry terminal just down the hill so it is convenient to utilize those when necessary. Speaking of the ferry terminal, I recommend a day trip to St. John while you're there. The ferry couldn't be more conveniently located and we loved the snorkeling at Trunk Bay.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful spot with us, Maxine and Chris. We had a very relaxing stay and hope to be back!

Good spot in the heart of Red Hook

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights after Christmas this year before heading to St John. Owners are great, even gave us a ride to the ferry on departure day. Great views. Walk down the hill to restaurants,a few bars,etc. Which was convienent. The walk back up the hill is a little tough after bar/restaurant visits so we had a islander cab take us for $5 which was great when we needed it. Def would stay here again. You get a feel of what it would be like to live on the island here. The owners have a newly built rental on same property next door which is nice and I would recommend. If you have a free day go sailing with Max. We were there busiest time of year no cars avail for rent, I would reco renting a car.
