    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    My wife and I liked the location, which was in a very quiet area with little traffic and a beautiful view of Fish Bay from the upper porch. We felt very safe while staying there. The inside was furnished very nicely and had everything we needed. It felt like home. We also liked the unique outside shower. Joe, the property owner, was very nice and helpful.

        Adorable vacation cottage

        My fiancé and I absolutely loved our stay at Cactus Cottage. We especially enjoyed falling asleep to the symphony and Coqui Frogs and visits from the owner's cat Marco (he will gladly spend time cuddling with you and waited for us every time we came home.) This house is a short drive from Cruz Bay, but is far enough out into the "wilderness" of St. John to enjoy the night sky and wildlife. We saw plenty of lizards, frogs, land frogs on the property while we were there which added to the charm of the place. We were sad to leave and can't wait until we get the chance to visit again.

        5/5 Excellent

          Perfect 20th anniversary vacation

          We had a wonderful visit to St. John! The Cactus Flower Cottage was a perfect private 20th anniversary getaway! Looking forward to visiting again!!! Very private, beautiful view, loved the pool, and the huge bonus was the amenities for the beach and snorkeling....everything we needed was there and the wonderful outdoor shower!!!!!

          5/5 Excellent

            Well appointed with great hosts

            Quaint and comfy cottage with every detail provided. We were able to grill our dinners on the deck and relax at “home” or drive into town for a night out. The hosts Tina and Joe are helpful, friendly and provide wonderful advice on restaurants, beaches and trails. If there was any problem, it was the No-see-ums on the Island that bit us up until we figured them out. If you go, be SURE to bring Skin So Soft and wear it at dawn and dusk. Keep the fans going in the cottage!to keep them away and enjoy your stay at this lovely place! Oh and yes. the shower is great.
