2 words...The. View.
This place was amazing. The view was unbelievable. Perfect tiny cottage for the two of us. Enjoys the morning on the deck. Afternoon relaxing inside & went out in the evenings. Perfect for our empty nest vacation.
Veryy hospitable owners. Had a wonderful time and enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the island and our accommodations.
An Oasis in Paradise
What a lovely place! My hubby said he would be happy just hanging out on the patio, enjoying that gorgeous view.
We did not rent a car and had a stress free week with the many taxis. We walked down (and back up,!) to Secret Harbor a couple of times and boy did our Fitbit stats go up!! Excursions to St John, Coral World Ocean Park, and Coki Beach were highlights. We always enjoyed coming back to our Oasis.
Stonehouse was a quiet, beautiful,amazing, perfect getaway place for my husband and I. Joanie and Robert are wonderful! They greeted us on arrival and took us on a tour of the east end of the island. Always available for questions and information. We enjoyed every sunrise on the deck sipping coffee and watching the Caribbean turn it’s many shades of blue. Sunset grill was a quick walk and was perfect for spending days on the beach. Snorkeling gear and beach chairs provided were perfect and used daily! We are already planning a return trip!!
Thank you for such a wonderful review! We are so glad that you enjoyed the peace and serenity at Stonehouse.
We cater to those travelers that are looking for a quiet place to listen to the gentle ocean below and watch the sunset and moonrise from the deck.
Wonderful views near a good swimming bay.
A clean apartment with sufficient appointments for our needs. These included plenty of towels for beach or home and a kitchen that functioned well. The porch is a delight and feels like a direct overlook on the ocean with no obstructions to the view. The nearby grocery store, car ferry, and swimming beach were quite nice. We used the snorkeling gear all week.
Thank you for posting such a wonderful review! It was our pleasure to host you both and I am glad that you had such a relaxing week.
Perfect and romantic!
Stonehouse was nothing less than amazing and breath taking. The views from the porch were out of a movie and the apartment was cozy and perfect. Joanie and Robert are great hosts and have truly thought of everything when sharing a slice of their dream home. We would definitely stay again and recommend stonehouse to anyone visiting St. Thomas.
Stonehouse is tucked away on the waterfront in the convenient East End of St. Thomas in a quiet walking neighborhood smack dab in the middle of beaches, shopping, restaurants and the red Hook Ferry to St. John!
