Recent East End property reviews
"As an owner, I knew what to expect upon arrival in St Thomas. My focus of this review is of this owner that I rented from. The communication was excellent, and I was completely assured that everything would go smoothly-and it did. If you are considering renting from this owner, you can feel comfortable that you have NOTHING to worry about. His terms and conditions are reasonable, and will work to alleviate any concerns that you might have far in advance."Guest: Easy Victor Date of Stay: December 2011 Review Submitted: January 12, 2012View listing
"Spacious, beautifully appointed unit! Three separate balconies, separate master baths provide privacy and lots of room to enjoy. The unit is clean, well-maintained and luxuriously appointed. The resort provides great luncheon options on-site, as well as a great gym and spa. Great restaurants in nearby Red Hook. Overall a wonderful experience. Highly recommended!!!"Guest: Patti Date of Stay: June 2010 Review Submitted: September 7, 2010View listing
"The Larimar was the perfect location for our 5 day stay in St. Thomas. The apartment had everything we needed along with incredible views of Secret Harbor and the Caribbean. Having beach towels, cooler, and beach chairs available made our trips to the beach easy and saved us money on beach chair rentals. Stonehouse is convenient to Red Hook, the ferry and many of the great beaches of St. Thomas. Joanie and Robert were wonderful hosts and provided all the information and accommodations we needed to navigate and enjoy St. Thomas. Providing the US Customs forms in advance was a big time saver at the airport! We highly recommend Larimar and look forward to staying here on our next visit to St. Thomas."Guest: TXtwo Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 3, 2014View listing
"This is an outstanding location being next to the marina, especially if you take advantage of the boat excursions available right out of Sapphire Marina. Beautiful condo, even better than the pictures! Everything was modern, clean and worked, and of course, the view is spectacular!"Guest: Bear Lake Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 24, 2014View listing

Along the streets of this charming town, the Havensight Mall offers great Caribbean wares at duty-free prices and there is a surprisingly vibrant nightlife after dark. Red Hook lodging is a great place to find a cold drink, casual dining and party music.
