**This review is for the Villa** I'll say it straight up - A House of Open Arms will not be everyone's cup of tea. If you want to be able to walk to shops and restaurants, don't stay here. If you don't enjoy peace, quiet and tranquility, keep away. Don't want a little aerobic exercise to get to your car each day, stay somewhere else. However, if you enjoy a relaxing space with few electronic distractions, a warm & welcoming owner and a central location on the "quiet end" of St. John then A House of Open Arms is for you. This was our 9th trip to St. John and we have stayed at several villas. None have had the welcoming feel that A House of Open Arms has. Catherine is as involved or unobtrusive as you want her to be. The welcome dinner is such a wonderful touch after a day traveling. And we haven't found any other villa that provides the same value for price or level of service. As other reviewers have mentioned, both the road to the villa and villa access are challenging. However, that is not unique on St. John. What really sets A House of Open Arms apart (and makes up for the aerobic aspect of the location!) is Catherine's hospitality. A House of Open Arms in a gem!
