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

I choose cottages because of the tripadvisor reviews, glad I did! Truly a Caribbean jewel! We stayed in crows nest and the views and breeze everyday cannot be beat, it is like waking up in paradise. The maid service was fantastic and always had fresh towels and beach towels. The king size bed was very comfortable and the use of... More

We stayed back in June this year and upon arrival were greated by a very welcoming staff. The location of the property probably just can't be beat on the island (in my humbble opionion). It's right on the beach (one of the best ones...) and you can snorkle and swim right there (we saw a turtle within 3 minutes of... More

I would recommend The Cottages to anyone looking for a quaint and eclectic place to stay. I traveled there with a family that was from St Croix and they said that the particular beach that The cottages wad located on was the best beach on the island and I have to agree. It was absolutely gorgeous every day. The hotel... More
