About Leslie Rockstein

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

Why Leslie Rockstein chose Northside

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

What makes this cottage unique

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.

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.

What an AMAZING place to stay in St. Thomas!

  • 5 out of 5
I had SUCH a positive experience during my recent stay here! It was my first time on the islands and this place was the PERFECT place to stay. The owners are such genuinely kind people and were incredibly helpful with providing information on beautiful nearby beaches, fun local attractions, and where to find basically anything else we were looking for! We were also pleasantly surprised to find that many of the essentials that can easily be forgotten when packing (like clean beach towels!) were already provided in the apartment closets. It's location is truly unique in that its nestled among nature, but is still only a short drive from Magen's Bay, shopping centers, and other fun activities that the island has to offer. Overall, this place is truly a GEM in Paradise and I highly recommend it!

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!

It was such a delight to assist you in your stay. I'm glad you appreciated the extra care we give in providing a very clean, quiet retreat in the natural setting of banana trees, frangipani and coconut palms. We look forward to your return.

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!

  • 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

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.
