WONDERFUL WEEK IN ST. THOMAS

  • 5 of 5
Let me start by saying this property has a million dollar view..wow...it was breathtaking! Everything you could need for a wonderful vacation is provided. One of the best days we had was sailing to the BVI via the Daydreamer charter and this was all thanks to Joanie's recommendation. We hope to visit again soon!

BEAUTIFUL AND RELAXING!

  • 5 of 5
The Sunflower studio was a beautiful little apartment with a breathtaking view! The hosts are very welcoming, kind, and helpful! A nice beach is a short walk down the hill. The Cup-N-Kettle is a great place to get tea and bite to eat. It is a wonderful place to get away in paradise!

PERFECT GETAWAY WITH A MILLION DOLLAR VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a 5 day vacation in St Thomas and we had such a fabulous vacation. Sunflower Studio is the cutest little perfect romantic getaway. The view is absolutely phenomenal and breathtaking! One of the best views I have had ever in any vacation rental. Everything in the apartment was great, very clean and set up very well. Joanie and Robert are wonderful hosts and are very helpful with anything that you might need. I loved staying in the east end since its away from the hustle and bustle of the cruise ship goers, so close to so many amazing beaches, so close to the Red hook ferry terminal (so a day trip to St John is very doable) and lots of great restaurants close by. I am so sad that our vacation is over, but we will definitely be back soon enough and I will highly recommend this place to anyone visiting St Thomas!

A BEAUTIFUL PARADISE REMOVED FROM THE CITY

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we stepped foot onto this property, we had our breath taken away. We had plans to explore the island, but ended up spending most of our time at this location on the porch gazing out at the panoramic luster. Absolutely beautiful. The owners are incredibly nice and eager to make your stay as pleasant as possible (which does not require much work). We look forward to visiting again!

YOU WILL LOVE THIS PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have just returned from a week at Sunflower. We were thrilled when we found this slice of paradise on VRBO. After reading the reviews, we knew this was the place for us. Joanie & Robert were perfect hosts and gave us some great suggestions for places to eat and snorkel. The studio is well equipped with most everything you will need including kitchen items if you wish to whip up something quick and enjoy your beautiful view from the deck. We loved watching the deer come to visit during the morning and the hermit crabs going up the stone pathway in the evenings. For outdoor activities, towels, beach chairs, cooler, snorkel gear and noodles are provided. We particularly liked snorkeling at Secret Harbor and Sapphire Beach. If you go to St. John to snorkel, visit Leinster Point and Haulover Bay. Fun places to eat near Sunflower are the Sunset Grille just down the street, Duffy's and Latitude 18. And if you're so inclined, we found a fabulous place to go horseback riding located 10 minutes away called Golden Age Horse Ranch. Sunflower is clean, well kept and private. The location is convenient to Red Hook where there are quite a few restaurants and the ferry to St. John. And of course it is within walking distance to Secret Harbor Beach which is about the nicest beach on the island, in our opinion. There is no doubt in our minds that we will stay there again on future trips to St. Thomas. We highly recommend Sunflower and suggest you stay there too; you won't be sorry!

Owner's Response: Laura and Torsten, It was great to meet you both and sharing a glass of wine on our patio. Thanks for all of your insight into horseback riding at the Golden Age Ranch. I will definitely share this with our other travelers and I am glad that you enjoyed snorkeling as much as we do at Secret Harbour. We look forward to your return!

CARIBBEAN RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
I needed a getaway during the cold winter season, and Sunflower at Stonehouse was a wonderful respite. Joan & Robert were very welcoming, accommodating, and very hospitable. The studio is very well equipped with with anything you could need, that you didn't pack. The private deck has the most amazing view of Secret Harbor, and the sunsets are to die for.
Things I would recommend: use the mosquito net on the bed, plan to take a taxi most places if you don't rent a car, and have a great time :)
