Great Views and Good Location!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Excellent vacation getaway....

  • 5 of 5

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.

highly recommended appartment

  • 5 of 5

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!

Clean & Quiet, Riveting views

  • 5 of 5

Stonehouse is perfect for any couple looking to get away from the grind. We instantly fell in love with the charm of the place. It had everything we needed; beach chairs, cooler, cooking supplies, as well as all the appliances one could ask for. The location was very desirable. Close enough to the beach where you can walk, yet settled up in the hills so that the views are spectacular. The villa boasts an indoor hammock and window shutters that open out to the sea. It was in the low 80s outside however the inside was always cool because of the big ceiling fans that always circulated air coming in from the sea. It is a 5 minute taxi ride into Red Hook, where you can find nightlife, restaurant and other entertainment. All in all - everything you need for a relaxing time!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little place. It is definitely small, but for a couple it is perfect. It was probably one of the cleanest places we had ever stayed. There was a nice grill out. We went to the market several times and bought fresh seafood to grill. The location is wonderful being within walking distance to Secret Harbor. Driving to all the different beaches was a must and not too far. It is a 5 minute drive to Red Hook to eat and party. The owners were very helpful with any questions and the beach chairs they gave us with the cooler were fantastic. The view was beautiful and so peaceful. I would rent again in a heartbeat!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Beth and Mark! So glad you have you stay at Seaglass and enjoy out little slice of Paradise and that you were able to cook up some local catch on the Weber gas grill. Seaglass is 750 sq. feet which most would consider spacious for a 1 bedroom vacation rental but I guess it depends on where you live as to what is considered spacious. We look forward to your return and thanks again for staying with us.
