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?.

We stayed in the Cottage and loved every minute of it, from the first morning with the beautiful view to the very last minute. Max and Chris were wonderful, ensuring we had everything we needed and giving us recommendations for beaches and dining.

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...
