                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: I alCatherine Perry, owner and innkeeper of A House of Open Arms. I helped to build this house from the ground up. I began in 2004 and completed the building process in 2006. I am a full time artist as well as the Innkeeper on this property and I welcome my guests at the ferry dock in Cruz Bay and offer a first evening welcome dinner. I also provide some basic essentials for your first few days: milk, homemade granola, coffee, sugar and tea. To learn more: visit my website at www.houseofopenarms.com

                  Why the Owner Chose Coral Bay:
                  I purchased this land in 2003 to begin a dream of being a working artist and Innkeeper on St. John. I create unique lighting for many private homes on St. John. My guests are welcome to visit my art website of www.artofopenarms.com or visit my studio during their stay here!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  A House of Open Arms is on the electric grid to provide A/C but is also solar-powered and purified rainwater-fed. It sits amid lush tropical gardens, a 180 degree view of the sea. Cooling easterly breezes come up the hill making the need for a/c very optional. Hawks, kestrels, bananaquits, Lesser Antilles bull finches, Puerto Rican bull finches, and magnificent frigates float above with the crashing sea below. This is truly a nature lover's paradise. It is made all the sweeter by the knowledge much of the electricity and all of the water used on the property are collected from the sun and sky, with minimal impact on the surrounding environment.
