“Lovely view”
Reviewed 12 February 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.
THE BEST GETAWAY LOCATION IN ST THOMAS!

“Perfect honeymoon location”
Reviewed 2 February 2012 for a stay in January 2012

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.

“Wonderful Retreat!”
Reviewed 19 January 2012 for a stay in December 2011

My husband and I stayed at Lion's Gate for a full week and really enjoyed ourselves. It was a very private space and the views were amazing! It was a very good value, probably the best on St. Thomas! We spent most days exploring the island and then came back "home" to cook dinner and play a game outdoors. It was lovely!
The only drawbacks are that the music from the bar at the bottom of the hill would keep me up (although I am a VERY light sleeper) and the dogs would wake me up early-ish. My husband slept through both very easily.
A day sail with Max is also a must if you stay at Lion's Gate. We really enjoyed our day of sailing and snorkeling.

“A Little Piece of Paradise”
Reviewed 13 July 2011 for a stay in June 2011

people found this review helpful

This was our first trip to St. Thomas and we certainly hope there will be many more! Our entire stay here was a dream vacation. The apartment is clean, comfortable and well-appointed with every amenity you could possibly need. Waking up in the morning with a good cup of coffee on the porch overlooking beautiful Red Hook Bay and the breathtaking islands can't be beat! Red Hook has everything you need, great restaurants and shopping without all the hassle of the cruise ships. There are two beautiful beaches only 5 minutes away. The views each morning and evening, the beauty of the many bays, our sailing trip with Captain Max; all these created memories that my husband and I will always treasure. Can’t wait to return!! Thank you so much Max and Chris for sharing your little piece of paradise!!
