My husband Chris and I have lived on St. Thomas for over 20 years. He came to dive, I came to sail. We met by chance and discovered we both have a love of the water and the Caribbean life style. Chris is very talented and knew he wanted to live here permanetley, so he built a house on the top of the hill. We got married in 1995, and often talked about making the home we love accessible to guests. In 2008 we expanded it to accommodate guests in our downstairs studio apartment. We are thrilled with the way it turned out as it captures the Caribbean life style that we love.
The apartment has been so popular that we decided to build a one bedroom cottage. It took a year and I am so happy to say the we finally finished it on July 4th. Independence day has new meaning. It is a Caribbean dream cottage with spectacular views. We marvel at how many humming birds call the apartment home and now it seems that the green parrots have up living in the tress near the cottage.
I'm sure up will love it too. The spacious porch is a perfect way to enjoy your first cup of coffee or to sit back in the evening and watch the colors change over the islands with a cool beverage in your hand. The trade winds will keep you cool as you sit outside from breakfast to diner, and of course if needed there is air conditioning.
My husband, Chris, and I live on the property. We will help you enjoy your vacation in any way we can. Just ask for local tips on restaurants and activities.
Beautifully appointed bathroom with a surprising shower. The vanity is hand crafted Mahogany with a granite counter top....moreless
The best amenity of all is the location and view. When you are here it seems as if the world has slipped away. But within a few minutes you can be down the hill for restaurants, shopping, or hopping the ferries to visit the other islands.
We also have beach chairs for you....moreless

Red Hook, on the East end of St. Thomas, is the perfect place to stay. Just down the hill from Lion's Gate is the ferry terminal. In 15 minutes you can be across Pillsbury Sound and in the National Park on St. John. A 40 minute ride takes you to Tortola, in the BVI. Bring your passports for this. The Baths at Virgin Gorda are spectacular with huge boulders that look like a giant tossed them up in the air and they landed in the ocean creating The Baths.
American Yacht Harbor is right at the bottom of our hill. A 2 minute car ride or five minute walk. All the day sail boats and fishing boats leave from here.
Red Hook also has an active night life. Everything from a cold beer and hot pizza to fine dining. Shops to explore and the docks are filled with yachts to dream about.
Year Purchased: 1989
About the owner: Chris rebuilt the main house in 1989 after Hurricane Hugo blew it down. And then he met me. We married in 1995. We share a love of the islands and enjoy showing it off to friends and family.
Why the Owner Chose Red Hook: The view and the breeze are something I never get tired of. Not even after all these years. It would be hard for us to ever move from here. The parrots and hummingbirds are personal friends.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: We are close to everything but feel a million miles away when we reach the top of the hill
