We love this location near Secret Harbor, with an unparalleled view from the private deck. Joanie and Robert provide beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, beach umbrellas, cooler, plus everything for cooking and eating in. Tho we never ate anywhere but on the deck or Red Hook harborside restaurants. Loved the quiet, while stargazing from the hammock. I also like that they live on the premises and can answer any questions about the island and excursions but are never intrusive. Our second time here and we will return.
Perfect honeymoon getaway!
Sunflower was perfect; nice and cozy. The view was phenomenal! We didn't get a chance to spend time on the hammock. We were trying to avoid mosquitoes. Overall, location, location, location. Within minutes of Red Hook and Secret Harbor Beach. Tons of restaurants. We also went to the grocery store and ate in a couple of times. Everything you need as far as kitchen utensils and cookware. We also rented a car to make things easier. Thank you Joanie and Robert for letting us stay at your beautiful property. We will be visiting again soon!
Thanks Chanthy for taking the time to post the review! We really appreciate it and it will be very helpful to other travelers. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the Sunflower Studio at Stonehouse. We also travel a lot and we try o keep the apartments just the way we would want it on vacation.
Sorry about the mosquitos that week! After the rain the bugs seem to come out in force. We have since sprayed the property.
We look forward to seeing you again...
Joanie and Robert
Easy check in, beautiful view, very close to Red Hook. It was very convenient having a rental car as we enjoyed exploring the island. It was the perfect size studio for two people but we didn't spend much time at the rental property cause we were too busy exploring! We had a great vacation. Very relaxing.
Piece of paradise
Our stay on St. Thomas at Sunflower was everything we wanted and more! There was a small hiccup regarding the room but it was quickly resolved. The AC had been out from a power outage and we quickly unplugged and plugged back in and it seemed to work just fine! We really enjoyed staying here as it was really close to the ferries which we used twice during our stay! We really enjoyed being so close to Red Hook and enjoyed visiting Melt, Duffy's Love Shack, and XO Bistro. We also had a fabulous breakfast and latte at Lattes in Paradise! We enjoyed utilizing our hammock after a long day to come and relax and look out across the blue waters! It was perfect and we will be back to the island someday! It now has a special place in our hearts! My boyfriend proposed to me at Drake's Seat which has a fabulous view overlooking Magen's Bay! Magen's Bay is by far my favorite beach that we visited while staying on St. Thomas. Definitely do a day trip to the B.V.I to see the Baths! I am pretty sure this was one of the big highlights from our trip!
Thank you again for letting us stay at Sunflower! We loved it!
Awesome vacation spot!!!
Great place to stay. Everything from fresh cut flowers to loaned beach chairs. Robert and Joanie have provided everything for a perfect stay. Highly recommend this property, very private and well decorated.
Stress free get away
The view was amazing from our porch. The studio was just enough space for my husband and I with everything we needed for a stress free week away. The snorkeling out in the bay was amazing. I highly recommend this place.
It was a pleasure having you here and I am glad you enjoyed our beautiful Caribbean blue sea view!
