"My husband and I have now stayed two times at this lovely condo. We felt right at home. Everything we could have needed was provided for our comfort needs. The view is fantastic and the residents are friendly and helpful.Steps away from the crystal pool and Sapphire Grill. Complete with beautiful weather...what more could one ask for?!"Guest: Deborah F.

"This studio is a short walk away from Secret Harbor and a quick drive to Red Hook.We shopped for groceries at Food Center (also close) and prepared our meals in-house( I actually enjoyed washing dishes with the view of Red Hook!)The owners were gracious and available on-site for any questions or concerns. We did not rent a car and used the taxi service to arrive at the studio. We spent most of our days relaxing on Secret Harbor's beach, enjoying its calm waters, lovely snorkeling, and nice restaurants. Just to give you an idea of the unit's proximity to Red Hook, we did walk to Red Hook one morning in order to catch the ferry to St. John (watch those corners!). I highly recommend this studio and would stay here again!"Guest: Nerva G. Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: May 18, 2014View listing
"Right on the beach and such a nice peaceful spot. We loved this room and the fact that we could walk right out on the beach to swim or just sit on the back patio and watch the day go by. This was our first time to visit St Thomas and we will definitely stay here again. We shopped at nearby Food Center and the kitchen was stocked with what we needed. The bed was very comfortable. Freshwater pool just steps away."Guest: Lil Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: May 10, 2014View listing
"The unit was nice and the location being near the Ferry in Red Hook for day trips to St Johns Island was great. Great views. Nice water. Unit owner was pleasant and easy to work with. On the down side, we had to send a reminder to get our mid-week unit cleaning service and the balcony which was very nice in general had a wood lattice above the door full of mold growth and the above unit sweep a bunch on sand down on our balcony."Guest: David W.

Red Hook lodging is a great place to find a cold drink, casual dining and party music.
