Comfortable and quiet
Very comfortable bed. Property is great for a couple. Very glad we had the AC in bedroom as it was hot for October. Kitchen could use a few more things if you do much cooking. This was mentioned to Tina, and she agreed to supply them. The cottage is in a good location - far enough from Cruz Bay to be quiet - but easy access to the market, shops and beaches.
We would stay there again.
Clean/lots of space/beautiful property
We stayed at the cottage during the 4th of July week and end of Carnival! It was perfect being far enough away from all of the noise and commotion but still close enough that we could make a quick drive into town. The house is perfect for what we needed. Nice and open, huge porch, ac in the bed room cooled us down really quick! Host were nice and friendly and answered our question really quick on the app and via text. I wouldn't have changed a single thing about our trip and if they'll have us back would love to rent from you again!
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.
