“A Little Piece of Paradise”

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!!

“Nice little place...great view”

My wife and I stayed at Lion's gate for a couple of days in August, 2010. We planned to use it as a rest base prior to a week in St. John. After getting the last Jeep on the island (yes, do rent ahead...I didn't...big mistake) and paying $90 to get to it from the airport we were guided by Max' friend Julie to the house. Of course we got lost becaus of my inability to follow basic instructions or use of a map, but Julie found us and got us there. Lion's Gate is way up on a hill overlooking the bay at Red Hook and the views are incredible. It has a nice kitchen area if you like to eat in, comfortable bed, and a really cool stone shower. A previous guest (or maybe Max) had thankfully left a bottle of rum which I helped myself too to ease the pain of the taxi guys who ripped us off at the airport. Anyway, as I said, we used Lion's Gate as a base to catch the ferry in Red Hook to St. John. The ferry is right at the bottom of the hill so it was super convenient. The little town of Red Hook is great too. Plenty of restaurants to choose from and quiet. Cruise ships and their associated crowds are on the other side of the Island too so Red Hook would be a good area to stay if vacationing on the island. The wife and I both enjoyed our stay and felt Lion's Gate was an excellent value. I'd definately stay again.
