Lion's Gate Getaway sits high on the hill overlooking Red Hook harbor and has a spectacular 270 degree view of St. John and Tortola. In a few minutes you can walk into Red Hook for shopping, dinner, drinks and night life or catch a ferry to the other islands. My husband Chris and I have lived on St. Thomas for 20 years. Chris came to dive and I to sail. We met and found we both have a love of the water and the Caribbean life style. Chris built this house on top of a hill and now we have expanded it to give our guests a private tropical setting that is perfect for a romantic getaway. When you wake up in the morning the hummingbirds will greet you and share your view. The porch captures the Caribbean life style with it's cool breezes and view of the sea and did I mention the birds?. ...Lion's Gate Getaway sits high on the hill overlooking Red Hook harbor and has a spectacular 270 degree view of St. John and Tortola.

From the apartment you can be on the docks in minutes to rent a power boat, go sailing or if you are a shopper you can be in Charlotte Amalie in 30 minutes for some serious shopping and site seeing. We live on the property and can give you restaurant tips and help you find the best beaches and places to visit. Lion's Gate is fully air-conditioned with a full kitchen, granite counter tops coffee maker, toaster, full refrigerator, and stove. Best of all is the huge stone shower that lets you know you are in paradise.More

I'm so glad they enjoyed my apartment. They were very busy and I hope they come back so I can get to know them a bit more. Perfect guests, they took advantage of all St. Thomas has to offer.
