Just stayed there 11/10--11/15, nice beach, great old timey feel cottages,well maintained. Owner and staff could not have been nicer. If you fly in after dark it can be very hard to find, but everything on this island is hard to find after dark.

We just returned from a week at the Cottages and have nothing but good things to say about this amazing place. It´s located right on one if the most beautiful beaches I´ve seen in my life and very close to some others, just as beautiful and peaceful. Excellent for swimming, snorkelling or just relaxing.

We stayed 10/4 - 10/11/14. The first four nights we stayed in the Crows Nest. Older unit, but a great charmer. Sitting outside on patio and listening to the ocean was great! The only thing that would help it is if there was a fan on the patio, sometimes was a little stuffy. Also, at night make sure you have... More

We stayed September 24-October 1st. Although my husband was born and raised in St. Croix, this was the first time my 4 kids mother and I ventured to the island. It was AMAZING! Even with my husband being a former local, he raved about how gorgeous the beach at Cottages by the Sea was. The plum tree was an added... More

My wife and I spent less than a week in StCroix and Cottages by the Sea was the peace we needed, We were greeted by a friendly and personable staff from the maintenance man to the housekeepers and managers. Our patio faced the beach and was a 20 pace walk from our front door. It is quaint with private cottages... More

We absolutely LOVED this place! We stayed in Crow's Nest which was perfect! It's not one of the remodeled units, but none the less, it was adorable and we loved it just the same! Our cottage was clean and the bedding clean and comfy as well. Some of the cottages had ceiling fans on the porches, this cottage did not,... More

I can't say enough good things about Cottages. But First you must know it's not super modern or fancy so if you want that it's not for you. It is NOT a Sandals type resort. BUT If you want a comfortable charming cottage that is ON a gorgeous beach and has all the comforts of home (fridge, stove, micro, blender,... More

Our stay there was great. The beach was fantastic with almost no waves. The manager was extremely helpful with our after-hours check-in. The room was quaint and maintained. The only ding was that both beds had sand between the blankets and the cover sheet. A quick pop of the sheets outside and the problem was solved. It just struck us... More

I was anticipating this trip for month's....researching and reading reviews. We went from choosing an all inclusive destination to Cottages instead. We have a cottage, have rented cottages many times, and were completely comfortable with "vintage". Of course, these have been there since 1949!!! I must say the location was absolutely the best ever!!! Crow's Nest must be the most... More

I booked our stay at Cottages by the Sea based on the rave reviews that I read here on Trip Advisor. First the good: the beach is beautiful, crystal clear water, gentle wave action, perfect for swimming or bobbing in the waves on a "noodle". There is pretty good snorkeling on the left side of the beach and straight out... More
