Great weekend getaway
Property is just as advertised. Great view of the surrounding areas.
The best on the island! Max was such a gracious host, and her attention to detail makes this cottage so warm and friendly ! I felt like I was in a gorgeous movie set! Yes, the views and location are the best, no doubt, but the sense of relaxation you feel when your up at the top is one I will remember for many years to come. I loved the bedroom - watching the sunrise over the ocean and the moon at night with a warm breeze blowing in was my favorite part. It has it all hands down!! I’m not sure I’ve ever felt so comfy on a stay . Loved every minute of it! Thank you Max... you made our visit to the island so memorable❤️❤️❤️❤️
The Owners did not handle the ROACH infestation professionally...
I expected insects, it's the Caribbean and have been many times, but I have never experienced roaches. When I brought the roach issue to the owner's attention-my friend had one crawl on her while sleeping- the owner told me "they come in for a drink sometimes" (don't insult my intelligence) and upon requesting an exterminator was told by text" I could leave and she'd refund the balance of my money"...this was during spring break, as if I would have been able to find accommodations. The stay became a ritual of checking the kitchen ceilings upon returning at night and nights of uneasy sleep worried about roaches crawling on Us. An exterminator was sent 3 days before We left and the owner offered me a bottle of wine(compared to the thousands I spent to stay there) for my inconvenience. I overlooked issues, because I understood that it is someones home and not a major corporation, but there is still a standard of which the customer paid for that needs to be maintained. I never write reviews, but felt it necessary after the way the I was handled by Max and her Husband. I have to be honest and say that the cottage aside from the roaches and lack of customer service was well equipped and had a beautiful view. The parking situation was difficult due to other renters with cars.
I was expecting this review from Stephanie.
She was not happy and I wanted her to have a great vacation so I did offer her a refund as she seemed to not like anything and I felt that it was her vacation and she should not be unhappy be able to relax and not be stressed. I never offer refunds but felt that I should as she seemed to not like anything.
My exterminator was away fighting cancer but sent someone as soon as he could and I have to say that after a spray there are usually dead bug on the floor. There were none.
We do have "mahogany birds" that do fly in and they get your attention but they are few. There was no infestation
I am sorry that she did not get the vacation she wanted but I tried to make her happy.
A Tropical Vacation Retreat
St. Thomas and St. John were hit hard by two category 5 hurricanes in 2017. The damage was extensive.
The Cottage at Lion’s Gate does not look it. It looks like it was made many years ago and taken care of by people who love it. Everything is clean, tidy and in great shape.
We used the veranda a lot. Ate our meals, had cocktails and watched the harbor on it. The view is great.
The kitchen had all the tools,pots, pans and sharp knives for my wife who likes to cook.
The cottage would be great for a honeymoon, or any one wanting a relaxing vacation.
Max is a great person. We came , stayed at her cottage, went on a cruise with her, and left a friend.
Hope to be back!
What a view !
Such a cozy cottage ! The view is unbelievable! We ate breakfast out there everyday and enjoyed a cocktail in the evening out there as well . Loved that we could open place all up and let the nice breeze in . The owner was great help and place has all the basics you need ! Loved the big shower ! Very close walk down the hill to restaurants, bars, grocery and redhook ferry. Little bit of a walk back up but not terrible . I even did in sandals and we didnt mind working off the calories . A cab took us up our last night for few dollars per person . We did not have rental car but cab fares were reasonable to and from airport, beaches and restaurants. Would definitely stay again ! Thanks
Perfect Caribbean Charmer!
Our recent stay at Lionsgate cottage was island perfection. Max, owner, graciously picked us up in Red Hook upon arrival.
The cottage is so lovely & well appointed. It’s obvious Max has put great deal of thought into making the cottage perfect for her guests.
I already miss morning coffee on the spacious porch, which I described as my perch above Red Hook. The views are wonderful & give a true sense of island escape. The kitchen has all needed to prepare a light breakfast to a full meal. Also, we appreciated the pieces of furniture made by Max’s husband, including a beautiful Mahogany bed!
Lionsgate is conveniently located to the ferry, market and restaurants. Less than 5 minutes to all these amenities.
A trip highlight was sailing with Max! It was our favorite day of the trip. We highly recommend Lionsgate & hope to return next winter.
It was such a pleasure for me two have such wonderful guests.
Your comments carry a lot of weight as you also have rental property. It's nice to know I'm doing it right.
Of course the highlight was getting to know you by taking you sailing. Showing you my world.
Now Chris, my husband is in your world taking advice from you.;
Thanks so much for choosing the cottage. I hope this is the first of many visits.
Red Hook, på den östra änden av St Thomas är den perfekta platsen att bo. Bara nedför backen från Lions Gate är färjeterminalen. På 15 minuter kan du vara över Pillsbury Ljud och i nationalparken på St. John. En 40 minuters resa tar dig till Tortola, i BVI. Ta ditt pass för detta. De baden i Virgin Gorda är spektakulär med stora stenblock som ser ut som en jätte kastade dem upp i luften och de landade i havet skapar baden.
American Yacht Harbor är rätt längst ned i vår kulle. En 2 minuters bilresa eller fem minuters promenad. Alla dagen segelbåtar och fiskebåtar lämnar härifrån.
Red Hook har också ett aktivt nattliv. Allt från en kall öl och varm pizza till fina middagar. Butiker att utforska och hamnen är fyllda med båtar att drömma om.
