Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful house. We felt as if we were staying with friends and not just as guests. Everything here was just fantastic. It seemed that no detail was overlooked. Everything we could need for our stay on the island was here and ready to use. Monica and I are already planning our next trip to the island and hope to stay here once more.

I am a retired elementary school teacher. Hosting travelers makes me feel like an ambassador of the slow down movement. I truly love seeing our guests detox from their busy lives. They truly leave here feeling restored!

Leslie Rockstein purchased this cottage in 1984

We fell I love with this property because of the unobstructed view of Magens Bay and the rainforest.

Lemon Tree Guest House is centrally located. If you do not want to rent a car, you can easily walk to the end of the road and get a taxi to Magens Bay.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 out of 5
I'm not really a resort person, so I was thrilled to discover MVI on HomeAway. My friend and I rented a car so we'd be able to explore without relying on taxis and found it pretty easy to get around from here; we took ferries to Water Island and St. John, snorkeled in Sapphire Bay, and spent an afternoon lounging in Magen's Bay. The place was clean, comfortable and surrounded by beautiful nature -- coming from the snowy northeastern US, it was so lovely to be able to sleep with fresh air coming through the windows! We loved being able to cook when we wanted to and relax out on the screened in porch. Steve and Leslie were extremely helpful from booking all the way through the end of our trip. I'll definitely be back next time I'm in the USVI and will recommend it to anyone I know who's planning to travel there!

My wife and I needed a get away to recharge our batteries after the brutal winter. Paradise was found. The hosts were great people and we enjoyed staying in their apartment. Great location and Magen's bay was only a 10 minute drive. They also had some great zero g beach chairs!!! We will return.

Get there from here!

This was a great point to start everyday on STT as it is centrally located to everything. Red hook Megan's Bay and shopping are just a short drive away.
Leslie was very helpful in getting us directions for food and other shopping which is just a couple of miles away. She also left any unopened food there from the last guests which was VERY helpful.
The apartment is very comfortable and clean and has just about anything you would need including spare snorkel gear and beach towels to borrow.
Enjoy!

We are back

  • 5 out of 5
when checking your calendar for 2014, we realized we didn't leave a review from out second month with you this pas April. The month we spent with you at your beautiful home in June 2012 brought us back in a mere 10 months, its been just 6 months since we returned and have been checking air fare and your calendar for about 6 weeks. Can't wait to see you both again, hopefully right after the new year

We look forward to your return. When you asked me to store your printer, I knew you would be back! How fortunate you are to be able to work and play at the same time. Please note that we have updated our listing information to include DISH network cable TV. The calendar is always up to date so just pick your dates!

Ahhhhhh--just like a second home!

  • 5 out of 5
What a lovely little apartment tucked away in the hills of St. Thomas. It was such a treat to stay here on my recent visit to the island. The apartment itself is so cozy. I can feel the sea breeze coming through the windows, smell the island air and hear the island sounds, even now. I miss my little apartment already. It really feels like home, right away--the minute you pull in the driveway. Steve & Leslie are a wonderful, warm, friendly couple. They know everything and everyone on St. Thomas. They think of things that you might need and places you might want to go even before you think of them. You can really tell how much they enjoy having guests and they make you feel more than welcome. Loved St. Thomas, the beaches, the restaurants, the people and especially these accomodations. I can't wait to go back.

Fantastic Place, Fantastic People

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I stayed here for our 30th anniversary; we stayed for two weeks. The apartment is terrific, exactly as pictured and Leslie and Steve were great hosts. Proximity to Charlotte Amalie and Magens Bay was great. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and were able to really relax in their apartment. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the island.

I am so pleased that your stay was so comfortable and enjoyable. Thanks for leaving us with your MOON guide book to the Caribbean. Now that I'm retired, I've decided to rediscover this beautiful island and it's hidden treasures. I have added it to our visitors library.
