5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We spent 8 days here, enjoyed the entire time. The weather was great and the beach is one of the best on the island. I recommend that you rent a car since it is a bit out of the way, but, with a car, you have access to everything you will need.

I want to give this place a good review, I really do and there are very good things about it but there are some problems too. Our cottage, Compass Rose was about 20 steps from the water, it is the closest one to the beach and we loved that. It has a full kitchen (we even used the oven to... More

Perfect little cottages with everything you need to be independent. Cute, comfy and right on the beautiful beach. Friendly helpful staff. Not super luxurious but perfect place to stay for anybody on a relaxing low key vacation. Loved it and will stay here again.

The hotel is located on a very pretty stretch of beach in Frederiksted. The cottage we stayed in, Cowry, was comfortable, well-appointed (in a casual way) and very clean. The staff at the hotel is very friendly and accommodating. I recommend renting a car, the island is very easy to navigate. Definitely visit Christensted and to the Domino Club to... More

First time in St Croix, I have a good friend that lives on the island, Cottages is right on the water. When picking a place, I do think west side is the best side. We went all over the island and this hotel and the west end of the island offers the best beaches. The beach is perfect at Cottages,... More

This was our second stay at the fabulous Cottages by the Sea! It is a quaint, well maintained & beautiful property right on the beach (like take 12 steps outside your cottage and you hit the sand!). The beach there is mainly private so never are there crowds, even with the property at full capacity. The rooms are inviting, bright,... More

This small, locally owned Hotel is perfect for a "Get Away" from the hustle and bustle of life. Many nice features, including Kayaks and Bicycles. And, it's right next door to one of the best Restaurants in Frederickstad, the Beachside Café.

I booked our stay at the Cottages for our 30th anniversary trip. We stayed in the Charthouse which was very roomy and had a private patio and looked right out over the ocean. We had an amazing time and really hated to leave. The owner Paul was helpful and friendly and our housekeeper was excellent and always around to help... More

I have to say the the Cottages by the Sea was a delight. The rooms were very clean, the property very well kept and the staff fantastic. When we arrived we were given a room upgrade to the Coconut from the the Chocolate room. It was on the second floor just over the Chocolate which provided us with a full... More
