About Leslie Rockstein

I am a retired elementary school teacher. Hosting travelers makes me feel like an ambassador of the slow down movement. I truly love seeing our guests detox from their busy lives. They truly leave here feeling restored!

Leslie Rockstein purchased this cottage in 1984

Why Leslie Rockstein chose Northside

We fell I love with this property because of the unobstructed view of Magens Bay and the rainforest.

What makes this cottage unique

Lemon Tree Guest House is centrally located. If you do not want to rent a car, you can easily walk to the end of the road and get a taxi to Magens Bay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful house. We felt as if we were staying with friends and not just as guests. Everything here was just fantastic. It seemed that no detail was overlooked. Everything we could need for our stay on the island was here and ready to use. Monica and I are already planning our next trip to the island and hope to stay here once more.

Magen's Valley Inn

I must say that our stay, albeit short... Was wonderful. Leslie was continually in contact with me. Even when I had some difficulties with my travel plans. She and her husband werewarm, thoughtful and inviting hosts. They went out of their way to ensure we had a nice stay. This place was fantastic with a lovely kitchen (evertyhing we needed), a very comfortable bedroom, a nice sized shower and a wonderful screened indoor/outdoor room. We loved having our breakfast outside on the patio. These people are A++. Very highly recommended. Lastly, it was very very clean. :)

Simple and superb!

  • 5 of 5

Simply put: 5 stars, would stay again.

Long story: We were looking for a reasonably priced place to stay and found this gem. Off the beaten path, this is a great spot for those that don't like to be trampled by other tourists at some large hotel chain. The apartment is cute and cozy, attached to the main house. You do have a private patio which is screened in and facing a gorgeous and lush backyard. At dusk, you can watch the sun set over the ocean and listen to the birds. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you would need to cook at home. Basically, it's a place to live like a local, but with some major added amenities. Leslie and Steve (property owners) are tremendously knowledgeable and helped us to find our way around. Placing your trust in them is a good bet.

We had a strategy for getting around without a car and that was to have one taxi driver take us everywhere. It saved from having to give directions each time. I would say to either do that or rent a car. The location is pretty close to both Charlotte Amalie and Magen's Bay.

We have a one and a half year old and would like to return and stay here again soon -- I think the apartment is perfectly suitable for two people and one child.

Wonderful escape!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for us to stay. We enjoyed ourselves and the great neighborhood. Kitchen had all we needed and then some. Leslie was very helpful and great resource. Can't wait to come back and live permanently in this neighborhood! We were happy to meet our future neighbors and get to know the area.

What an AMAZING place to stay in St. Thomas!

  • 5 of 5

I had SUCH a positive experience during my recent stay here! It was my first time on the islands and this place was the PERFECT place to stay. The owners are such genuinely kind people and were incredibly helpful with providing information on beautiful nearby beaches, fun local attractions, and where to find basically anything else we were looking for! We were also pleasantly surprised to find that many of the essentials that can easily be forgotten when packing (like clean beach towels!) were already provided in the apartment closets. It's location is truly unique in that its nestled among nature, but is still only a short drive from Magen's Bay, shopping centers, and other fun activities that the island has to offer. Overall, this place is truly a GEM in Paradise and I highly recommend it!

Owner's Response: I enjoyed showing you my favorite places to shop and having coffee at Barefoot Buddah. Looking forward to seeing you both again in Feb. Your project sounds amazing. Let me know if I can assist you again when you return.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not really a resort person, so I was thrilled to discover MVI on HomeAway. My friend and I rented a car so we'd be able to explore without relying on taxis and found it pretty easy to get around from here; we took ferries to Water Island and St. John, snorkeled in Sapphire Bay, and spent an afternoon lounging in Magen's Bay. The place was clean, comfortable and surrounded by beautiful nature -- coming from the snowy northeastern US, it was so lovely to be able to sleep with fresh air coming through the windows! We loved being able to cook when we wanted to and relax out on the screened in porch. Steve and Leslie were extremely helpful from booking all the way through the end of our trip. I'll definitely be back next time I'm in the USVI and will recommend it to anyone I know who's planning to travel there!

Owner's Response: Dear Meghan, It was such a delight to assist you in your stay. I'm glad you appreciated the extra care we give in providing a very clean, quiet retreat in the natural setting of banana trees, frangipani and coconut palms. We look forward to your return.

Great place to relax in the islands!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I needed a get away to recharge our batteries after the brutal winter. Paradise was found. The hosts were great people and we enjoyed staying in their apartment. Great location and Magen's bay was only a 10 minute drive. They also had some great zero g beach chairs!!! We will return.
