Where to Stay

The main stone home (L’Agave) and guest house (Petite Agave) are a mix of modern and charming old world elegance possessing incredible views of multiple Bays - Great Cruz, Chocolate Hole, Hart, Klein & Rendezvous. On a clear day you can easily see St. Croix.


A House of Open Arms is a two-level villa in Coral Bay on the island of St. John with a bedroom, a private bathroom, a full kitchen, expansive porch and a pool in front of the porch. Below the main house lies the Cottage. The Cottage is a single-room, simple, beautiful studio, with an outdoor private shower, an outdoor partial kitchen (including a sink, a grill with side burner, and a small refrigerator), a wraparound porch, a private bathroom, and an airy main room that serves as a living room during the day and bedroom at night. Perfect honeymoon spot.

Explore the Virgin Islands

"Having lived on St. John for 28 years, it was fun to learn new information about this special island from "Explore the Virgin Islands". Mr Pariser has hiked the trails and met the people. His book is the most personalized and comprehensive guide I have read."
