"Newt" was a cute and unexpected guest, just chilling in the window sill. (Yes, we named the little geckos!) We bought t-shirts with geckos on them so we wouldn't forget our little friends! The best way to jump into Island Life! Lion's Gate Getaway came highly recommended to us by a travel agent as we were searching for a honeymoon... More

We're so glad we found Lions gate with Chris and Max. The studio was well outfitted with all the pots, pans, dishes, coffee maker, toaster over and gas range top. The folks before had left some things, beer, rum, coffee,some condiments and we likewise left our extras. The room it's self is clean and unique. The decor is interesting to... More

I searched up and down St Thomas for a unique, private, affordable place to stay and am so very happy that I discovered Lion's Gate- it was everything I was looking for. I stayed there for 4 nights and only wished it had been longer. All the other reviews here are spot-on. Maxine and Chris are lovely people, very friendly... More

Lion's Gate Getaway turned out to be everything we needed it to be. I absolutely agree with Audrey L and Brent M who posted their reviews of this property previously, but also would like to recommend to go sailing with Maxine when you there. She took us snorkeling to Hawksnest Bay of St.John. Maxine is a great captain and excellent... More

My friend and I loved our stay at Lion's Gate Getaway. Maxine is a very gracious host and made sure our needs were met. We wanted a place that had a kitchen so that we could make breakfast and pack a lunch. The price is incredibly reasonable, which is why we chose to stay here. The views are incredible and... More

This was my 17th trip to the Virgin Islands and my absolute favorite place to stay on St.Thomas. I first discovered Lion's Gate last year on a solo trip, and had to bring my wife back this year. The view from the balcony is breath taking. If it had been totally up to my wife, she would have spent the... More

A charming little place! We loved returning and opening the gate. Perfectly stocked to fix meals as well. I loved eating breakfast outside every morning and listening to the horn of the St John Ferry. Maxine was kind enough to get us a fan making it wonderful to sleep at night.

Just returned from our second visit to Lions Gate. Waking up everyday to a beautiful sunrise over St. John, feeling the cool breeze. Perfect. We love the Red Hook location, easy access to day sails, and the ferry to St. John. Latitude 18 across the bay has great live music, and Secret Harbor is a nice snorkeling beach nearby. I... More

Nice and clean vacation rental. We liked the location as it was only a 2 minute drive to the red hook restaurants, and a 5 minute drive to sapphire, secret harbour or Lindquist beaches. Our favorite beach was Lindquist. Our favorite restaurant was island time pub in red hook. Be aware that the rental is on a fairly steep hill,... More

Two couples from the same town booked for the same days and had similar names!!! Freaky but true. We were one of the two couples. We were disappointed not be able to stay at Lion's Gate but the honesty, helpfulness, and kindness of Maxine was amazing. Once she realized her error she located another a place for us to stay,...
