  • VillAllure 2016

    "Our whole family stayed, children, grandchildren. we needed a place that would sleep 12. With the optional air mattress we had plenty of room. This property is spacious and comfortable. Space for privacy when needed. Plenty of exercise on the steps, if you have trouble with steps this is not for you. The kids enjoyed the pool. We were impressed by the number of TVs, not that you come to St John to watch TV. Close to Skinny's. Excellent views."

    "Our family was blessed to have found such a beautiful home on the south side of St. John with easy access to all the island has to offer. Superb home with open island feel and plenty of space to unwind. Gorgeous views along the expansive porch overlooking the ocean below that provides ample shade to stay cool on hot days. The exterior landscaping and pool area were fantastic along with a high quality gas grill to cook fresh fish from The Fish Trap in Cruz Bay. Each bedroom is spacious and relaxing and spread out in the home from each other for privacy. The kitchen has every amenity that you could ever require a coffee maker, blender, pots and pans, cooking knives, etc... There was a full spice rack for your creations. Making the arrangements was easy and Hilarie assisted with our jeep rental. Any questions or concerns were promptly addressed however we really didn't have any issues since the home was great. As someone else noted, the end of the road is gravel and a bit bumpy but don't be alarmed since it keeps other people from adventuring to the home for privacy and once you make it to the home the first time it is not a problem. Going for walks down the road to boatmen point is nice and there is always the Easterly Trade Winds to keep you cool. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay on the island and would strongly recommend Hart Bay Ridge and working with Hilarie. Wifi throughout the home is great for teenagers. Excellent TV and satellite with Blu Ray in two spots in the home to watch movies or listen to music."

  • Sunny breezes with a killer view!

    "Maria Breeze was the absolute most perfect villa for my group's summer escape to St. John. With 5 wonderful bedrooms, each couple had their own private bath and everyone was comfortable. The main unit's fabulous veranda was our hangout spot from breakfast til sunset and on into the evenings. I never even watched TV the entire time we were there and never missed it. To us, the show was outside, and we didn't want to miss a minute of it. The trade winds were fabulous and the pool was awesome! We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back! Everyone wants to stay 10 days instead of a week next trip ~ yay! Special shout out to Mark for checking on us and making sure that we had everything that we needed. You rocked it, and we totally appreciated your assistance!"

  • Spectacular setting

    "We just spent a week at the House of Open Arms in the cottage. Everything was perfect from the time we stepped off the ferry in St. John where Catherine Perry, the owner, was waiting for us. She took us to our car rental and then we followed her back to Coral Bay where House of Open Arms is located. The setting is so spectacular it took our breath away. The cottage itself is lovely and perfectly decorated. It has a beautiful outdoor shower with that magnificent view! The dinner she prepared upon our arrival was delicious and so appreciated after 14 hours of travel. The rest of the week was an adventure. We did a lot of snorkeling and even tried a day of diving (6-Paq Scuba). The island is full of places to investigate and the snorkeling was unbelievable. Catherine directed us to places off the beaten track and we were never disappointed. She was always available for questions, but was unobtrusive otherwise. Our overall experience was 5 star. After a busy day on the island we got to return to the cottage and the beautiful view off the deck where bannanaquits were waiting for their sugar (and would feed out of your hand if you wanted!). My husband says one of his favorite places on planet earth is the chair on that deck!! We miss that view, but are grateful we experienced it! We want to go back and plan a trip for 2 weeks as one week went so fast. If you stay at the House of Open Arms Cottage, you will need 4 wheel drive to get up her driveway and once you get there will have to navigate quite a few steps (much less at the villa). However, my husband is 60 and I am 59 and we were fine. Again, it was part of the adventure and always worth it when we arrived at the cottage! When you plan a vacation from a distance, you never really know how it will turn out. This vacation & location exceeded our expectations!."
