Cozy and beautiful

  • 4 of 5

Place was just as described. Condo was clean, cheery, and quiet with breathtaking views of the Carribean. Location is perfect. Other than the bathroom being small, we still managed fine. Met Joan and neighbors upstairs. All were friendly. Felt safe too. Thank you for being a great host. You truly have a taste of paradise and we thank you for letting us borrow it for a week.

Scenic retreat

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Stonehouse in the Larimar unit. This accommodation has a fantastic view and is just a short walk to the beach at Secret Harbour where the water is calm and full of fish. Our one bedroom unit was clean, comfortable and incredibly well stocked with kitchen utensils and tons of linen. Joanie and Robert are excellent hosts, always nearby and responsive to any inquiries. We really appreciated Joanie's offer to take us to a nearby grocery store to stock up on food for the week.

Stonehouse is a short cab ride to Red Hook which has fun restaurants and night life. We caught the ferry to St. John where we hiked and had a swim at Honeymoon Beach which was lovely!

Cabs from Stonehouse were easily accessible and reasonable- the best company we found was Kelly Taxi as they are stationed nearby at the Ritz Carelton.

This is a relaxing, welcoming accommodation and we would definitely return.

Beautiful St Thomas Condo

  • 4 of 5

Larimar at Stonehouse was a beautiful location to view Nazareth Bay and the near-by Secret Harbor. Our visit to this quiet condo was a wonderful opportunity to sit on the balcony and watch the waves crashing on the rocks and the yacht activity in Secret Harbor. The condo was just as the pictures showed. It was very clean and comfortable. Joanie and her husband were very helpful with our travel plans and were a great source of information for touring this beautiful island. I would highly recommend this rental for anyone planning a trip to St Thomas.

What a beautiful destination! This really is the best view ever! Blue waters, mountainous islands, hills below the condo. So quiet, private, intimate. Really cute interior. Perfect for anniversary celebration or honeymoon! Close to Secret Harbour which is one of the best places to snorkel on St. Thomas. And the restaurants and bar on that beach is incredible with delicious gourmet food and fantastic island drinks. Gluten-free options are also available. Back to the condo. Can't say enough good about it. The chairs and cooler loaned to us for our stay were awesome as they were easy to carry. We took them everywhere and had our own chairs on every beach. Even those where you have to rent the chairs. Not us! Great location. Great air conditioning. Great kitchen. Lay in bed and gaze out at the ocean through the giant sliding doors. Hostess was perfect. Helpful. Available. Would totally stay here again. The bathroom is tiny so if you're looking to spread out in there, it's not going to happen. Didn't bother us though.
