Lion's Gate Getaway

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.

"Newt" was a cute and unexpected guest, just chilling in the window sill. (Yes, we named the little geckos!) We bought t-shirts with geckos on them so we wouldn't forget our little friends! The best way to jump into Island Life! Lion's Gate Getaway came highly recommended
