“PERFECT IN EVERY WAY”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

We LOVE Lavender Hill...this was our third time staying here and it doesn't get any better than this.... all of the units are beautiful, clean and very comfortably furnished. The views from the deck are gorgeous and it was so relaxing just to be able to sit outside early am, before anyone else was up. It is a very short walk into town, with lots of great restaurants/bars; owners/managers are very accommodating and helpful. Stay here and you won't be disappointed. We are already planning our next trip.

Room Tip: My favorite units are 3W and 6W.

Lavnder Hill is an older condo unit rental resort up the hill from Cruz Bay, which means you can just walk into town. The walk down the hill is fine, it's the walk back up that is a little taxing (the owner said to think of it as walking off all that food you ate at Cruz Bay). The place is older but, for the price, it was worth it. If you are looking for fancy & modern, don't come here; if you just want something comfortable & clean with a fantastic view of Cruz Bay then you can stay here.

It's also got a cemetery in front of it and down across the street, so that's a warning if this sort of thing freaks you out, it didn't bother us at all. We were able to get some supplies for our full kitchen at the Grotto Bay resort store across the street but that place was a little pricey (but they make great sandwiches). We walked into town and found a small grocery store that fit the bill for us, we never did go to the big supermarkets which were quite a walk from Lavender Hill.

We would go here again for the price, all the places around it are a lot more expensive and it's location can't be beat if you want to hang around Cruz Bay.

Room Tip: we had the lowest floor, next time we would go up a floor, the view is so much better.

This was our 3rd stay at LH in the last 5 or 6 years and our 1st in 3W, which is a very nice 2-story 2-bedroom unit. Everything was fine with the unit, which has been our experience in these villas, but the neighborhood is changing. There is a new bar right down the street that pumped loud music our way at least 2 out of our 4 nights' stay. That isn't under the control of LH, at which frog-peeps were previously the loudest noise, but should be considered in plans to stay near Cruz Bay. Back to 3W: the king bed was super comfortable and the view was superb. Friendly cats, a lovely small pool, and very accommodating service rounded out the LH experience to which we have become accustomed.

Just spent 10 glorious days on St John staying at Lavender Hill Suites. Had read previous reviews and decided on suite 8E - perfect! Huge wraparound balcony, nicely decorated and had everything we needed to make it our home for 10 days. The views are spectacular and it is a short, 5 minute walk down the hill to town. We felt like we had the place to ourselves - very peaceful. We enjoyed the pool a few times and got a kick out of the cats greeting us at night when we would return, as they laid in the driveway or by the pool! You can hear the music playing from town at night while sitting on your balcony having a nightcap too - not loud, but just able to hear it. This was a first stay on St John for us (we usually stay on the east end of St Thomas and visit St John), but will not be our last and we will definitely return to Lavender Hill again! Staff of Lavender Hill are very friendly and keep the property well maintained - thank you!

One of the best spots to stay on St. John. A five minute walk from the ferry dock, central to Cruz bay, easy access to rental car agencies, restaurants, etc. Our favorite evening was just walk down the hill to the Beach Bar, have a meal, a drink, and watch the sunset over St. Thomas. Multiple water sports rentals are right there. Easy enough to rent a Jeep (also right down the hill) and cruise the island.

The rooms aren't super fancy, but are well maintained and comfortable. Get a room facing Cruz Bay if you can for some great pictures. Any time we can go to St. John this is where we stay. This price is competitive with other stand alone houses, and the location just can't be beat.

Beautiful decorated rooms with tropical colors! Gorgeous views, close to heavenly beaches, great location in Cruz Bay. Having a kitchen is perfect too. Suites feel like home.
Love the wrap around balcony and sunsets. Clean and peaceful. A+

We have stayed at Lavender Hill twice; both times were great! The units are simple, but well equipped, clean, comfortable, and affordable. No, the units probably do not compare with places that cost twice as much, but when comparing apples to apples, this place is hard to beat. The location is within walking distance to the bars and restaurants of Cruz Bay. We liked the ability to walk to the various happy hours. The views from the units overlook Cruz Bay; some units offer better views than others. There is a nice pool, which is often empty. There are also community gas grills located in the pool area. The grill we used was clean and in good shape (i.e. we had no problem using it to cook a meal or two). There is a manager who lives onsite and he was great to work with and will help you with anything he can to make your trip more enjoyable. We have vacationed on St. John with and without a rental vehicle. The overall experience is better when you have your own vehicle for the week, but it is not a must. Taxis are available within walking distance from Lavender Hill to shuttle folks to the beaches. Be prepared to spend at least a couple of hundred dollars per couple for a week of taxis (assuming you go to a beach each day). St. John is beautiful and Lavender Hill provides a great base camp to enjoy the island.
