“great comfortable studio”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

people found this review helpful

We rented the studio which was absolutely delightful. Outstanding views with several outdoor places for comfortable relaxing to enjoy the views and east breezes. Inside is well appointed, the kitchen is big, the decor perfect and we really appreciated the big open shower. The location is the easy gateway to St. John and the rest of the islands, restaurants and shops are also abundant right there at Red Hook. Our hostess Max was wonderful, ask her about day sailing on her sailboat.

“Extremely Nice People!”

Max and Chris are down to earth "good soul" people who were extremely accommodating. The apartment is perfect for two people. It's simple but gives you everything you need in location and amenities. Captain Max also does an excellent job of taking you out on her sail boat for snorkeling at a small extra costs which I would recommend.

“Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed April 10, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

person found this review helpful

My wife and I stayed at Lion's Gate for 3 nights. The apartment was just what we needed while waiting for our villa rental on St John. It is located on the hill overlooking the ferry terminal providing a panoramic view of the bay and neighboring islands. The apartment is clean and well stocked with everything you need in the kitchen.
I really enjoyed having my morning coffee sitting on the front porch and watching the sun appear over St John. Just a short but steep walk down the hill are a number of very good places to eat from Duffy's Love Shack to "XO".
Lion's Gate is just a short ride to the Food Center where we stocked up supplies for our sort stay at Lion's Gate and our villa on St John. (We rented a Jeep from Discount Car Rental and took it to St John. BTW, if you plan to take a rental to St John, verify that the rental company will allow it. Most won't allow the car to leave St Thomas.)
The owners of Lion's Gate live on the second floor of the building but they gave us 100% privacy during our stay. When asked they will provide very good help in locating restaurants, stores, and beaches. Maxine is also an excellent sailboat captain and does day sail trips.
My wife and I recommend Lion's Gate.

This was my 2nd time at Lions Gate. I had forgotten just how beautiful and special this property is. The room was spotless and soooooo comfortable. I went sailing with Captain Max and that was fabulous, not only is she an incredible host but also a terrific captain too. Her boat Lou was so much fun! They are building a cottage on their property that is going to be spectacular. I can't wait to go back.

“Lovely view”
Reviewed February 12, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

Lions Gate had lovely views. It was very comfortable, and had every thing we needed. We cooked some meals "at home". It is wonderful to have coffee without going out! Eva, the official greeter dog, made it feel like home.

Maxine and Chris are the BEST hosts. They have provided everything we needed and things we needed but didn't know we needed. The accommodations are so comfortable. The bathroom is so cool.
We just loved it there and can't wait to go back.

“Perfect honeymoon location”
Reviewed February 2, 2012 for a stay in January 2012
1
person found this review helpful

My husband and I got married in St. Thomas in January 2012 and absoutely enjoyed our honeymoon getaway at Lion's Gate. It is a secluded location located almost at the top of a mountain, which was great for us as we had 30 guests on the island for our wedding and we could steal some time to ourselves. We called Max (the owner) on our way from the airport and she greeted us at the bottom of her the hill and we followed her to the residence. Any time we needed something, Max was accessible by phone to answer any questions. Our air conditioner didn't work our first night and Max saw that it was fixed the next day. The studio has every amenity you might need for vacation, including a fully equipped kitchen (we never cooked though), beach chairs, and beach towels (no need to bring your own!) The bathroom with the walk in stone shower was gorgeous. My only complaint about our stay was the lack of water pressure in the shower, but from what we heard from others staying at different locations on the island, it's the same everywhere. The views from the patio are amazing, you can see St. John, Tortola, and Jost Van Dyke. Lion's Gate is in an excellent location to restaurants, beaches, and the ferry to St. John. We couldn't have asked for a more convenient spot to stay. You can hear music from the bars in Red Hook, but if you close the windows and turn the AC on, it will drown it out. I miss my daily visits from Eva (one of the resident dogs). On our next visit to St. Thomas, we would not hesitate to book another stay with Lion's Gate Getaway.
