While A House of Open Arms may not be perfect for everyone, it was perfect for us. We have wished to travel to St. John for many years, but other exciting adventures got in the way. At last we made it with hopes for scenery, fabulous snorkeling, great hikes and a romantic getaway. We found it all here. Because of... More

A House of Open Arms exceeded all our expectations! From the ease of booking, to receiving the book St John Off the Beaten Path from Catherine the Innkeeper, and her quick response to any question I had via email, helped me plan a fabulous trip for our anniversary. Catherine picked us up at the ferry, took us to get our... More

We have always felt "At home" staying at A House of Open Arms, so when it came time to pick a place to get MARRIED, we knew exactly where it was going to be. Everything turned out wonderfully. The Villa veranda was the perfect space for our steel panist, photographer, videographer, officiant, parents, and of course us. Catherine, as usual,... More

My now husband and I came to St. John to get married and for our honeymoon. We are so glad we chose to stay here (in the villa). Catherine is very warm, welcoming, and friendly. She made us dinner the night we arrived and it was delicious! We loved waking before the sun rise, sipping coffee, and feeding these beautiful... More

Choosing a villa for your stay on St. John presents a pleasant dilemma because there are many intriguing options. After a week as guests at the villa and cottage, our family of four would highly recommend putting A House of Open Arms on your short list of choices to consider. Some of the reasons our stay was particularly memorable: 1.... More

This is the second time I have stayed at A House of Open Arms. However, this is the first time I've been there with my children. I have to say it was a great experience for everyone. The kids loved the little pool, feeding the birds sugar, looking for crabs, and watching all the lizards every morning. Catherine is a... More

My husband and I just finished our first stay at the House of Open Arms. The establishment, location, and owner exceeded our expectations, and we're already booked for a second stay! Catherine, the owner, helped us prepare for our trip by sending a guide book and quickly answering any questions we had. As others noted in their reviews, Catherine met... More

Spent Easter week at “A House of Open Arms” and it did not disappoint. Catherine met us at the dock and then off to get the rental car and to the store. When we arrived we were tired and had traveled most of the day. You should be aware that the driveway that takes you to the Villa is very... More

This review is for the one bedroom cottage that is a few yards below the main house. It is completely separate and private. My wife and I were fortunate enough to stay here for 4 nights recently. Our trip was last minute and just by chance the owner, Catherine Perry, had a cancellation. We couldn't recommend staying here highly enough.... More

Our time at A House of Open Arms was simply spectacular. The Cottage was extremely comfortable with sweeping views of the water, the hills of St John’s East End, and out to the Caribbean Sea. Some days it was hard to leave that view to head to one of the many gorgeous St John beaches; so some days were indeed... More
