Certificate of Excellence

We are at Estate Lindhlom, having breakfast on the deck overlooking an amazing view of Cruz Bay. This is our second trip to St. John and Estate Lindholm. We're halfway through our week and are again having a wonderful experience. The owner, Brion, is extremely nice and always available to assist in planning activities. The property is close to Cruz Bay and the North Shore beaches. Most guests have rental cars, though we decided not to rent one this trip, and have found true open air taxis perfect for getting around St. John. The photos on the website do not the grounds justice- the gardens are gorgeous! Highly recommended.

We just returned from 5 nights at Estate Lindholm and want to highly recommend this beautiful, relaxing destination. It is even more beautiful than the pictures. We relaxed by the pool, under the shade trees (amazing trees, plants and flowers) view is over Cruz Bay with St Thomas in the distance. the groundskeeper lines the stone steps and walls with fresh flowers every morning. Brion joined us for coffee in the morning under the arbor and recommended resturants, beaches, hikes - he knows it all. We walked downhill to Cruz Bay for dinners and took the open air taxis home. We appreciated the "honor bar" by the pool. Comfortable bed, TV for news and check football (almost Superbowl) but only for a few minutes - too much to see and do. Brief rain shower followed by a beautiful rainbow. We just moved from the arbor tables to the unbrella tables. We met other guests at breakfast (self-serve) and joined new friends for dinner in town. Very quiet and peaceful. Some music drifted up the hill in the evening - very pleasant. We didn't use the fittness room - plenty of exercise on the hike down to Honeymoon Bay for snorkeling and a short walk from there to Caneel Bay for lunch.

We just returned from a 4-day stay at Estate Lindholm. It is one of the few things in life that are even better than you imagine beforehand. The lush setting, the views and the friendly people create an ambiance that is extremely relaxing. Being within a mile of the town of Cruz Bay means that it is close enough to walk to (downhill) yet far enough away where noise isn't a problem. Taxis from town back to Lindholm or from Lindholm to the north beaches and the Caneel Bay Resort are readily available. A truly unique experience which we hope to enjoy again in the future.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Kiddel room, which is on the upper level of one of the buildings and had a great vi...

Estate Lindholm is a lovely, peaceful place to stay on St John. The views of the bay and the gardens are gorgeous and the staff makes you feel very welcome. Easy access to the beaches on the North shore and the restaurants in Cruz Bay are a plus as well. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We stayed in Genti, a harbor view room and it was lovely

My husband and I spent five days at Estate Lindholm over Christmas—and couldn’t have been more delighted. Our room was so spacious, attractive, and comfortable—with microwave and frig—that we were able to host a “leftover” dinner party for other guests on our beautiful balcony. The views were gorgeous, the setting sumptuous, the landscaping lush and colorful. And the proprietors, Brion and Angela, were so helpful and accommodating that we felt we were houseguests, not hotel guests. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Confer with Angela or Brion.or reserve the "Honeymooner"

My husband and I spent a week over Christmas at Estate Lindholm and it was the perfect place for us to get away and relax! The property is not far from Cruz Bay but feels secluded and private. We stayed in Jumbie which had a lovely view of the bay and sunsets. The room was clean and comfortable and we appreciated the air conditioning! Brion and the staff were friendly and helpful. Every suggestion Brion gave us was fabulous and we enjoyed snorkeling and hiking and relaxing. We rented a Jeep which made it much more convenient to get around, but there are a couple of beaches within hiking distance. I would definitely recommend Estate Lindholm to anyone - although it's best for couples or friends traveling together. I loved how quiet it was on property (although a couple of nights I could hear the distant sounds of loud music from town which was mostly drowned out by our air conditioner). If we return to St John in the future, and i hope we do, we'll definitely stay here again!

We just returned from 4 nights at the Estate Lindholm and were very pleased with our stay. We stayed in Jumbie, which is a harbor view room with a beautiful balcony that has a small table and two wood rocking chairs--a great place to read and relax. The view from the balcony was wonderful--over the tree tops and out to Cruz Bay with St. Thomas in the distance. Given the view and location, it is a true bargain on the island. Lauren and Brion were very helpful in suggesting beaches to visit, running routes and restaurants. They were there when we need information and absent when we wanted privacy--perfect combination. Although it is not a long walk from the town to Estate Lindholm, I would recommend getting a 4x4 to enable you to explore the island. I am sure we will be back again soon.

Room Tip: Jumbie had amazing views!
