Wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

We so loved our stay at Seaglass. The name inspires happiness, and that is just how we felt. It was so comfortable! We tend to be busy during the day. But every morning and evening was perfect. The view is awesome and to be able to still enjoy it in our PJ,s was great. It is so nice to have some essentials on hand and only consider those meals that you truly want to go out to eat. Definitely a respite for any vacation lifestyle ( we don't have the stamina we used to, but this location enable us to keep up with our expectations). You can't go wrong here!!!!!!

Amazing Views. Great Location. Friendly Owners.

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay. Amazing views. Great location near Red Hook and beautiful Secret Harbour. The property is very well maintained, clean and the owners are very friendly and helpful in every respect. The photos don't come close to showing how beautiful the views are from the balconies. If your interested in staying on the quiet East End of the island look no further this is the place to stay. If your a diver or like to snorkel you can take a very short walk and be in the ocean doing both. Stop into nearby Aqua Action for a great snorkel trip to see huge turtles in their natural habitat or rent a tank and do a shore dive. Thank you again Joanie and Robert!

Amazing Place!

  • 5 of 5

Another fantastic two weeks at Seaglass. We simply love this place! We stayed here for 2 weeks in November 2106 and now two weeks in March 2017 and our opinion has not changed one bit. With the great ocean breezes, we never turned on the air conditioner even once for two weeks. You can only get these great ocean breezes from a location like this…I can’t over emphasize this feature. The views of the Caribbean Sea are fantastic. We were up every morning to watch the cruise ships come into St Thomas and watch them leave in the evening. The apartment is clean, well equipped and leaves absolutely nothing needed. Beach chairs, cooler and beach towels make every day at the beaches complete. It’s very close to the Red Hook ferry terminal so you can easily venture to St John or the BVI’s. There are 6 screened windows in the sitting area and this provides the sea breezes we love from the Caribbean island life style. The hammock in the den provided nice evening relaxation after a day in the sun and some (too much?) Cruzan rum. The comfy queen bed and those evening sea breezes make for very restful nights. Great WIFI, cable TV, and a great Altec sound system for all our island music. The neighborhood is very quite while being close to Red Hook for great restaurants, grocery stores (we recommend the Food Center), and any “night life” one would want. Joannie and Robert remain great host and are available for any local insight or information you may need. We have spent 4 weeks here over the last 6 months and we already consider it our “home” in the USVI. Hopefully, we are looking forward to two more weeks in the fall!

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Seaglass is an amazing piece of priperty. With beautiful views of the bay below as well as a consistent breeze to keep you comfortable. With a short drive from the airport, you are close to most anything you may want to do. Red Hook is a 2 minute drive for restaurants and services. The hosts are on site and are easily available for any concerns or questions about your stay. Seaglass is a great place to stay and we look forward to staying again.

Amazing two week stay at Seaglass!

  • 5 of 5

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!
