|Minimum Stay||3 - 6 nights|
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.
Lovely accommodations and views and I really liked Maxine's dogs Louie and Eva who came over and visited every day. I really liked the bathroom especially the shower and a great kitchen. A steep hike up a paved road that I did not mind but you should be aware of if you don't have a car. Great views of the harbor from a pretty terrace. Sounds of the town partying is heard at night and it can be difficult to sleep if the temp is warm but both should be able to be remedied by turning on the AC that I should of used. Gracious hosts.
Charming decor on a steep incline with priceless views. Definitely want a rental for the full experience!
Max was a super-host & a super sailing-captain. (we never met her husband, Chris- but louie & eva the dogs were such welcoming hounds as we sorely miss our own mutts.) Everything about our stay was perfection & we can't wait to return!
We were blessed with perfect weather during our stay. We used the fully functional kitchen for the majority of our meals. To us, the best part of Max's place is her wonderful porch that provides plenty of shade or sun, whichever you prefer. It's elevated view allows many islands to be seen, close and on the horizon and overlooks the Red Hook mooring field. The sunrises can be spectacular. If you've driven on the island before, you understand steep hills and switchbacks and this road/driveway is similar. Max and Chris are wonderful hosts that will help in any way and offer great tips (Lindquist Beach, XO, etc). We appreciated Louie & Eva's company too. We hope to return!
We ran into Max several days before we were going to stay with her on the docks in Redhook. Very nice and informative. We met up with her again when we got back from St John and she took escorted us to her house. Spacious and clean apartment overlooking the bay. We had breakfast and coffee every morning on the porch with a beautiful view. Towels, beach chairs and cooler were provided. Everything you need to go to a beach. We strongly recommend going on her boat for the sail and snorkel. Great way to go snorkeling in St. John. Lunch was great and the presentation was spectacular. Would stay with her again.
We spent a week at this property, after spending a few days on St. John. The property is lovely. There is a large patio with tables and chairs where we sat in the morning and drank our coffee while listening to the birds and the sounds of the town waking up. There are trees right by the patio, so it is always shaded, and plenty of birds and hummingbirds. It gave a feeling of being away from the town, but the property is very close to town.
There is a full kitchen, a bedroom, and a bathroom. All very clean and everything we needed was there. The hosts made sure we were taken care of. Chris met us at the plaza when we arrived and led us up to the property. We had one minor mechanical issue during our stay and Chris took care of it immediately. Maxine gave us recommendations for restaurants, beaches, and things to do (and also steered us away from a couple of things we were thinking of, which was also appreciated). It was a very relaxing week, I would not hesitate to stay here again.
