"Be prepared to fall in love when you arrive at Estate Zootenvaal..."

A little piece of Heaven

Why Zoot?

Whether you are looking for the perfect honeymoon destination, the ideal setting for an active family reunion where you rent all four of our houses, or simply a much deserved vacation respite, you need look no further than Estate Zootenvaal. This is the place where memories are made.

 ”We are sad to be leaving today. We will miss the sounds of the waves breaking at night and all the beautiful beaches on St. John. It is a paradise to visit & hopefully we will return in the not so far future.”

-Marcy + Jesse Roeke

Choose from one of our four beautifully appointed and newly refurbished seaside houses…the only structures on the National Coral Reef Monument waters of Hurricane Hole. Spend your days sunbathing, swimming or snorkeling on the coral reef, all from your beautiful private beach.

“Old Island” Experience

For over 40 years our family has owned and operated Estate Zootenvaal with great pride and a keen eye for excellence. Zoot as we are affectionately known, is a beautiful haven of four houses surrounded by the Caribbean Sea and the Virgin Islands National Park. We have been a favorite vacation choice for generations of families and individuals from all over the globe, seeking a wonderfully unique, “Old Island” experience. There is simply no other destination like Zoot on St. John.

 

“We feel blessed to have the opportunity to be on St. Johns. Our stay in Turtle Watch was really nice. The solitude was heavenly. We plan to come back!”

 

-Dan + Cherl Kercker

 

Tropical Paradise

Estate Zootenvaal on St. John’s quiet east end from Steve Simonsen

Witness breath-taking sunrises on the Caribbean Sea overlooking your private beach, 1,000 feet of waterfront and hundreds of acres of Virgin Islands National Park… a view from the beginning of time. Find deep peace under a blanket of shining stars each night. Be embraced by the lullaby of the waves as you drift off to sleep serenaded by the sounds of this tropical paradise.

 

“We needed a family break away from our crazy busy life: Estate Zootenvaal was like heaven on earth for us! What a break-taking place! I think we fell in love with the island. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful house and your nice little note. We will definitely come back!”

-Valerie, Philippe & Thomas
