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.

We had a short stay in BVI cancelled and so we had to find somewhere else to stay. We found Estate Lindholm and we were vet impressed. The rooms were excellent and very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was more than we anticipated and was very ample for a good breakfast. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We must make special mention of the owner, Brian. He went above and beyond for al guests and it shows in the entire facility. It is truly worth a stay.

We have been to St John several times but this was our first stay at Estate Lindholm. The grounds were beautiful with terraced gardens and a pool overlooking Cruz Bay. The rooms were lovely with amazing view that could be enjoyed while rocking in teak rocking chairs. The town was a quick walk down the hill, or a 4 dollar cab ride up the hill. Honeymoon beach was a quick walk from the hotel. The best part of the stay were the people. Brian the hotels owner greeted you every morning at breakfast and would give advice on activities for the day! He was so knowledgeable about the Island, it’s people and history. Nicole his daughter was readily available to help out as well as Corina. We will definitely stay at Estate Lindholm again!

Just got back from 8 days at this gem of a property. Beautiful location, and wonderful staff. Bonus points for the resident cats on property. Missing them already! Brion is so helpful with his morning chats by the pool. A wealth of info if you need any guidance or have questions on how to plan your days. Nicole and Korina also super helpful. The housekeeping and grounds staff did an amazing job. All in all, a fantastic trip. We hope to return one day. Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality! Peter and Paula Green

I don't often take the time to write a review, however, am compelled to sing the praises of Estate Lindholm. Comfortable from the start. Beautiful views, beautiful gardens, close enough to (yet far enough from) the bustle of Cruz Bay. The hosts Nicole, Brian and Corina were beyond helpful and friendly. Honestly, just an easy and relaxing spot to be. The accommodations were perfect and the beds were soooooooooo comfortable. We typically only visit St. John every five years for our anniversary, but Estate Lindholm makes this paradise accessible to visit more often. Just be sure to bring some good walking shoes :) Can't wait to go back!
