About Contact Joe and Tina
I am licensed contractor on St. John and specialize in woodworking. Windsurfing and sailing are my primary hobbies. I have two daughters who attend school stateside. I have lived on St. John since 1974 when I moved here with my parents. Two siblings and my parents still live on St. John.
Why Contact Joe and Tina chose Fish Bay
I found a unique piece of property with historical ruins and pictured building my home. I first designed and built Cactus Flower to live in. The cottage has all custom woodworking throughout. I now live in the main house that I designed and built encompassing the ruins on another piece of the property.

Comfortable home - good location
We had booked this house and trip before the hurricanes - we were happy to hear that it did not sustain a lot of damage. Arrived on a Tuesday afternoon - driving directions that were provided by Tina were great. I loved the big deck that I enjoyed in the mornings watching the butterflies and lizards, and loved the outdoor shower. AC only in the bedroom but only used it one night. With all the windows and doors open, there was plenty of breeze through the house. Cooked dinner in one night using the grill. Appreciated the beach chairs, coolers and washer/dryer. Perfect house for two and quick drive into town and/or the beaches. It’s a great house at a reasonable price. Joe and Tina are around if you need them but you have your privacy. Thanks for sharing your house with us!
A beautiful cottage and great location
Joe and Tina, the owners of Cactus Flower Cottage, were spectacular hosts during our weeklong stay on St John. The cottage was spotless, and the furnishings attractive and comfortable . We have been to St John many times, always renting through VRBO. I highly recommend Cactus Flower Cottage and we will definitely return!
Peaceful. Great Location. Great cottage
The island is still beautiful. The people are wonderful. Cottga eis is just like the pictures. Even better than expected. Hosts excellent. Will be back again.
Lovely cottage to get away from the hustle and bustle of Cruz Bay
My wife and I rented Cactus Flower cottage for our destination wedding/honeymoon. Joe and Tina were very helpful from the start and made the check in process very easy which was greatly appreciated due to the hectic nature of traveling to the St. John. Throughout our stay the cottage functioned as our home base as we headed out to our various daily activities. My favorite thing about the courage was how quiet and peaceful it was compared to some of the more crowded areas. The amenities were great especially the beach equipment that we would have had to rent otherwise. A rental Jeep was necessary to get around as we were to far away to catch a cab to town. Overall I would recommend Cactus Flower cottage to anyone who wants to go to St. John but would like some space in between activities.
Loved staying at the Cactus Flower Lodge in Fish Bay!
My wife and I just got back from a week long stay for our honeymoon and loved it! This property is one of a kind. At first we were hesitant because only the master bedroom has AC, but we quickly assimilated to St. John style living. Open up the windows and let the breeze roll in, this became our favorite part of the lodge. There is so much to do on he island that we never had a dull moment. Joe and Tina's deep knowledge of the island gave us the insight that only a local would have. We went to beaches that were untouched, found ruins and trails that aren't on maps and ate at the best restaurants.
All in all we really enjoyed this property and then natural beauty it added to our stay. We will definitely return to this property and would recommend!
Lovely cottage in a beautiful location
We loved our stay at the Cactus Flower Cottage. It was exactly as described, and the perfect location for us to explore Saint John. The house was well equipped, lovingly maintained, with a wonderful outdoor shower and a great deck for viewing Fish Bay and relaxing with a cup of coffee in the morning. We especially appreciated the A/C in the bedroom after a long day at the beach, and the furnishings were comfortable and clean. We rented sight unseen and were delighted with our choice. We'll be back!
