Just got back from an 11 night stay in the studio. Max met us in Red Hook and we followed her back to the apartment which was exactly as depicted. The studio is smaller than the cottage but was just right for us. We had a view of Red Hook from every window and a wonderful terrace where we could... More

Lion's Gate Cottage offers amazing views of Red Hook Bay. The cottage is nicely decorated, extremely clean, and is appointed with all the amenities for a wonderful vacation. We enjoyed having morning coffee, and evening drinks on the porch overlooking all the activities down at Red Hook. Each morning we walked down the hill for coffee and bagels at Moe's.... More

My husband and I spent two weeks at the Cottage! It is located above RedHook yacht harbor! The views are wide and full of boats and beautiful water. Mac is a gracious hostess and keeps the cottage well supplied. Having 4 wheel or all wheel drive in you rental car is necessary but once at the cottage the parking is... 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.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are situated on a hilltop just above Red Hook Harbor with a spectacular view of St. John, and Tortola. The trade winds keep it cool which makes it the perfect spot for your vacation. Especially in the summer. We have AC in the apartment but outside on the porch the trade winds are enough to keep you cool. Lion's Gate is a more than a studio apartment, it has a complete kitchen,is fully air-conditioned and has a porch that really serves as an additional room. The full bath has a wonderful large stonework shower that lets you know you are in paradise. The setting is ideal for the rest of your life or a short vacation. There is a private entrance with cafe doors that separates you from the rest of the world. There are Hummingbirds that have made their home in the foliage around the porch, they have breakfast with you, and the large trees that they call home provide privacy and they keep the porch cool, and to complete the setting, there are tables outside where you can dine, have a cool drink or just relax on the day bed with your favorite book and slide into a nap. From Lion's Gate you can stroll down to Red Hook for dinner or to go shopping, or make a quick trip to the grocery store. It is all so close but when you are up here it seems a million miles away. ... more   less
