The two weeks we stayed at the Seaglass apartment at Stonehouse was absolutely perfect! Joanie and Richard are fantastic host. What beautiful panoramic view of Secret Harbor and the Caribbean Sea. The open air feel with the cool sea breezes only enhance the Caribbean ambiance of this beautiful place. The location is perfect to venture out to the great St Thomas beaches and being only a couple of miles from the Redhook Port / Harbor provide easy water taxi access to St. John, Tortola, and Jost Van Dyke. Lindquist Beach on St Thomas is about 3 miles away is one of the prettiest beaches we have ever seen. The beach chairs, snorkel gear, and cooler provided made our day trips great as we could pack our lunches and libations and never leave beach!
Seaglass was spotless and had everything we needed. The kitchen was well equipped with everything needed to prepare meals. The bedroom is air conditioned and on the warmer nights was very nice even though we preferred to use the great breezes that flowed through the house whenever we could. The furnishings are Caribbean, airy and very comfortable. Top quality linens make a very comfortable bed. The bathroom is perfect for two persons with an ample supply of towels, etc.
We are not folks who watch TV; however, there is a DVD player and cable TV. Wi-Fi is fast and reliable. We used the Altec Lansing sound system just about continuously during our stay listen to our music collection. The most amazing aspect is there is a hammock in the living area where you can relax and look out over the beautiful vista of the sea.
We will be back!

My recent stay at Seaglass mid August was wonderful. The apartment is very well maintained with amazing views. The owner's go out of their way to make sure your stay is enjoyable. Stay here, you will be glad you did.
Seaglass is a very well maintained apartment with beautiful views of Secret Harbor. We stayed the first week of July and the mornings and evenings were especially nice to get a breeze in the front room. Since we were out and about during the day, only having A/C in the bedroom was not an issue at all. Joanie was a great host and was happy to answer any questions we had about the area. It was really nice to have complimentary beach chairs and a cooler available to use at the beach. Seaglass is only a 2-3 minute drive to Red Hook where there are several restaurants and bars. It is also right near the ferry to St. John which is super convenient. I also highly recommend walking over to the Cup & Kettle tea shop for a light breakfast, coffee, tea or fresh smoothie which is right across the parking lot from Seaglass. Would definitely stay here again.
Beautful spot. Short walk to beach paradise. Nice & attentive landlords. Would love to return.
Sitting in my hammock, feeling the cool ocean breeze...watching the sun set over blue/green water. That is what you will get when you stay at the Seaglass apartment. It is amazing apartment with breathtaking views. Also, the owners are AWESOME!!! Everything is very clean and the apartment comes fully stocked with plates, cups, silverware, pots and pans and utensils. There is a gas burning stove, microwave, and refrigator. They even supply chairs and a cooler to go to the beach.
If you need a great place to stay while visiting St. Thomas, I strongly suggest you staying at Stonehouse and especially the Seaglass apartment.
Nice appartment, clean, spacious for two AND very friendly owners. We had a great time. Quiet, great view of the ocean, very welcome natural breeze through the open windows. Easy walk to Secret Harbour and a little longer to Red Hook (mind the traffic though!). Kitchen is good equipped, did cook many times at home. Highly recommended!
Stonehouse is tucked away on the waterfront in the desirable and convenient East End of St. Thomas. You are nestled smack dab in the middle of beaches, shopping, restaurants and Red Hook. You can mingle with other travelers and locals at the coffee/tea shop next door as we'll as waking to Secret Harbour.
