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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a fantastic contrast to out home in the woods! We built our dream home amongst cedar and pine, near a gorgeous lake in the mountains of Northern Idaho. And here we are, in a home built with the same love and passion and nuture, amongst palm and frangipani, near a gorgeous ocean in the beautiful hillsides of St. John. Thank you for sharing your vision with us...so worth it!

Bliss in Fish Bay

  • 5 of 5
Cactus Flower Cottage is a excellent, affordable place to stay on St. John! My wife surprised me with a long weekend stay in this beautiful home and we didn't want to leave!
This well maintained home is located just a short 5 minute drive from Cruz Bay. Fish Bay is a quiet neighborhood with lots of hiking / walking options. Being St. John residents we enjoyed our stay-cation here. The pool is amazing, the kitchen was perfect for us to enjoy some nice dinners on the porch and enjoy all the comforts we don't have at home!
I highly recommend staying here! It's perfect for couples and I plan on recommending it to all our friends and family that plan on visiting us.

Laid back Charmer in Fish Bay

  • 4 of 5
Stayed at Cactus Flower for 7 nights. Great location close enough for convenience far enough away from the St John version of hustle and bustle! Enjoyed moderate hikes to Reef Bay about 30 minutes away by foot. Loved the outdoor shower and coffee on the porch in the morning. Owner's dog Chile hung out and chilled with us a couple of times. Can't wait to go back!

Felt like Home!!

  • 5 of 5
So happy with our choice to stay at Cactus Flower! accommodations were perfect for my sister, my niece and myself. More than enough room. The kitchen may be better equipped than mine. We never used the grill, prepared all meals inside and had every tool at our finger tips. Very quiet at night, great for peaceful sleep and sleeping in too. It's a great location to get to everything you might want to see, yet I can't imagine staying here without a car. Host provides parking spot on property. Loved the pool. No heavy chemicals, Used it most days, even if we went to the beach. Host were friendly and helpful from the time we inquired about booking to the day we left. Would definitely recommend this location to others.

Fantastic !!!

  • 5 of 5
We have travelled the world for over 40 years and have not found any place nicer than this cottage. The cottage is only over shadowed by the hospitality of Joe and Tina! They truly went the extra mile to make outr stay wonderful. Read all the praise in the other reviews...we agree with all of it. Perfect for those who want a quiet retreat after a busy day. This place is worth every penny and more. WE whole heartedly recommend to family and friends. Reserve with total confidence!

Amazing hidden gem!!!

  • 5 of 5
Perfect cottage with 1 bedroom, living room and kitchen. Gorgeous deck with wonderful views and the owners, Joe , Tina, and Maia were amazing and super friendly. They treat you like family and make you feel like youre at your home away from home. 5-10 minutes from cruz bay by car gives you the peace and calm away from town, but close enough to get to all the restaurants and shops. Best vacation ever. This was me and my wifes second time at the Cactus Flower and we will definately be back again! Thank you for your hospitality Joe and Tina!

We spent our 25th anniversary at Cactus Flower and it couldn't have been better. Cottage is absolutely fabulous, well appointed, so romantic. We never used the A/C and loved listening to the sounds of the night creatures going to sleep. Outdoor shower is so fun. Joe and Tina are unobtrusive but available if needed. PHPV and the "Marys" were friendly, welcoming and helpful. We have never stayed anywhere we liked better.
