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...

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,...

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,...

We loved every moment of our 4-night stay here and we truly wish we were still there. Maxine and Chris have created a fabulous and relaxing retreat high above Red Hook. The combination of casual comfort, amazing views, and proximity to restaurants, shops, the marina, and the St. John ferry is unbeatable. We rented a car but we almost didn't...

Great views set the tone for a week of relaxed days. Almost stayed at the breakfast table until noon several times! The full kitchen allows for easy breakfast and lunch so we had dinner out with no guilt. The hill allows some of the sounds of Red Hook to filter up so when the bar music is really loud in...

This is a great studio up the hill from Red Hook. The pictures don't do the views justice.They are amazing!! The patio is the perfect place to begin and end your day in St. Thomas. It's a great space for a couple to stay. You can walk down the hill to the ferry to St. John, good restaurants, a little...

If your staying on St Thomas, stay at the Lion's Gate Getaway. My wife and I stayed here and loved it. Staying at a vacation rental has many more benefits than staying at a hotel. We were able to ask Max her opinion on things to do and places to eat and we received good advise. Max is a great...

As always, a lovely place with the best bathroom in the world!! Max is great hostess - always smiling and always willing to do what it takes to make your stay memorable. But Chris is responsible for the great bathroom - walk in stone floored little shower room is great for after the beach or just showering, and there is...

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...

We stayed at the Lion's Gate four nights and found it very comfortable. The kitchen is just right and eating out on the wrap-around patio was great! The high hillside location offers a view of St. John, Tortola, Jost Van Dyke and all the little islands in-between. Sunsets and sunrises are wonderful. The ride up the hill is easy and...

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
