  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful location with the best views of the ocean you will find. Affordable, very clean, great landscaping. Well supplied kitchen. Friendly owners that are very helpful. We have stayed in many locations on St. Thomas and this ranks right at the top. You can not go wrong when staying at this rental. We enjoyed this vacation thanks to the peaceful times spent with the ocean view from this rental. Thank you to the owners, Joanie and Robert.

Great vacation house with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Larimar! The home was clean, had a stunning view and conveniently located to Secret Harbour Beach, supermarket and Red Hook. Staying at the east end of the island was a great idea as our favorite beaches were all within a 15 minute drive. We will definitely be staying at Larimar next time we visit St. Thomas!

Wonderful property, great hosts, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our first trip to the USVI this April. Laimar at Stonehouse made this wonderful trip even that much better. Joanie was a wonderful host, greeting us upon our arrival. The unit was amazing with striking Caribbean views along with being well equipped and very clean. It met all of our needs and more. I would highly recommend Larimar and the great owners of the Stonehouse. St Thomas and St John are beautiful islands. We are already looking forward to our next visit. Thank you Robert & Joanie deLugo for making our anniversary trip so special!

Weekend wedding getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to St. Thomas was for a friends wedding over a long 5 day weekend. We wanted something a bit more quite than a big resort and we had a wonderful stay at Stonehouse and certainly would consider it again for our next visit! The rooms were spacious yet cozy, clean, and comfortable. The amenities certainly fulfilled our needs, and the location is nice and the view from the property spectacular. Service-wise, I felt that the process from check-in to check-out was relatively seamless and the correspondence prior to our arrival was prompt and quite helpful.
