My wife and I stayed at Lion's Gate for 3 nights. The apartment was just what we needed while waiting for our villa rental on St John. It is located on the hill overlooking the ferry terminal providing a panoramic view of the bay and neighboring islands. The apartment is clean and well stocked with everything you need in the kitchen.
I really enjoyed having my morning coffee sitting on the front porch and watching the sun appear over St John. Just a short but steep walk down the hill are a number of very good places to eat from Duffy's Love Shack to "XO".
Lion's Gate is just a short ride to the Food Center where we stocked up supplies for our sort stay at Lion's Gate and our villa on St John. (We rented a Jeep from Discount Car Rental and took it to St John. BTW, if you plan to take a rental to St John, verify that the rental company will allow it. Most won't allow the car to leave St Thomas.)
The owners of Lion's Gate live on the second floor of the building but they gave us 100% privacy during our stay. When asked they will provide very good help in locating restaurants, stores, and beaches. Maxine is also an excellent sailboat captain and does day sail trips.
My wife and I recommend Lion's Gate.More
