Our stay at Estate Lindholm was nothing but magical. Perched atop the hill from Cruz Bay, our room had a beautiful overlook of the ocean and surrounding islands. The room itself was beautifully decorated, had WiFi, a tv with Roku and Netflix, air conditioning, a wet bar, balcony with table and chairs, plenty of towels for the shower and the beach, a large wardrobe for all our clothes, a soft sided cooler for beach trips, and a safe. There was free breakfast each morning which included yogurt, granola, fruit, cereal, bagels, English muffins, muffins, French toast, hard boiled eggs, juices, and coffee. The best part of breakfast was the lovely conversations with the Estate Lindholm team and other guests. The breakfast area is located by the pool which was perfectly warm but not too warm and has a stunning view overlooking the bay. I highly recommend taking a night time swim to view the stars over the ocean as the pool is always open. Estate Lindholm offers a pick up from the Cruz Bay ferry, plenty of parking for your rental car, snorkel gear for rent, beach chairs, and floats. There is an ice machine on property and the breakfast area is open as an honor bar throughout the afternoon and evening with liquor, beer, and bottles of wine. You just write down what you take, and it’s charged to your room. Estate Lindholm is a tropical oasis beautifully adorned with hibiscus, mango trees, orchids, and dozens of other plants and flowers maintained by the talented Leo! Brion, the proprietor, was an amazing host with tons of excellent island tips and suggestions. We really enjoyed learning about St. John and the history of Estate Lindholm from him. The rest of the team were very helpful, friendly and made our stay so much more enjoyable! We cannot wait to return to Estate Lindholm and highly recommend staying here during your St. John vacation!

St. John is an incredibly beautiful island, and yet somehow Estate Lindholm still stands out. Located within Virgin Islands National Park, it's within striking distance of the food and nightlife of Cruz Bay, as well as the trails, beaches, and outdoor excursions along the bays of St. John's North Shore. Brion and the Lindholm staff made our stay here truly special. The rooms have incredible views of the surrounding environs, and Brion was quick to provide tips and suggestions for any number of activities around the island. Little details--e.g. hibiscus flowers placed around the walkways and common areas--round out the experience.

My husband and I stayed here after getting married on St. Thomas. We loved the continental breakfast each morning. Here you could find the owner sitting with guests and giving any advice on where to go that day. While we didn't use their honor bar, we loved that it was available to us. We often walked down the road (5 minutes) to Cruz Bay, and then took a taxi back up ($5 pp) at the end of the night. I do not recommend walking up the very steep hill, especially at night! We did also rent a car, for which they had plenty of parking for. We would stay here again !

Just returned home to New York from our first stay at Estate Lindholm and already can’t wait to go back! From the warm welcome, incredible views and all around wonderful feel of this amazing place, it immediately felt like you were staying with friends. We loved breakfast with Mason the cat, history of the area from Brian and recommendations from April. It is perfectly located between a short walk down to town and on the way up the hill to the beaches! They have a comp breakfast, perfectly set honor bar and snorkeling gear for rental (be sure to check out the sea turtles at Maho!) Definitely recommend renting a Jeep so you can get the most out of your beach hopping. I only wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you to the amazing staff for a great experience!

My wife and I spent five wonderful days at Estate Lindholm in April 2021. We loved the beautiful property, the friendly staff and the incredible views from the Hawksnest room. The unique location overlooking Cruz Bay and adjacent to the national park made for easy access to town and the north shore beaches. We can't wait to go back to St. John and will definitely stay at Estate Lindholm on our next visit.
