Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Catherine Perry is the 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 basic essentials for your first few days:,homemade granola, coffee, sugar and tea, cooking spices,etc.
Why the Owner Chose Estate Fortsberg, Saint John, USVI:
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. I also have items for purchase for my guests! And they are always. welcome to 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. It also has solar powered water system to insure continuos use even in an electrical pause. The water purified rainwater-fed and UV filtered. House of Open Arms sits amid lush tropical gardens with 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.
