Just a short walk up a hill from Cruz Bay Ferry Dock. Nothing fancy, but a good place to stay with basic amenities, including kitchen, TV, air conditioner, and separate bedroom. #3 is the best cottage because it is away from the road and the rooster. There is a good grocery store just down from Samuels. Also there aren't always... More

We stayed at samuel cottages from march 10th to 21st 2014. It was perfect for us, very affortable, well located, nice hospitality. Patrice came to welcome us, open to answer our questions. We were close to the beaches (need a car) walking distance from the dolphin market & all restaurants. The island is magical, we found our paradise. We loved... More

This is truly a mom and pop operation. I called Patrice to see about a room and she said all they had was an apartment that they had just renovated and were booking. They don't take credit cards, just cash or check. The apartment is nothing fancy but it sure would keep you safe in a hurricane. The area is... More

Let me start this review by saying that we have never been to the property. I booked for the property for a week stay in December. Patrice answered numerous questions that I had via email. She was extremely helpful. Due to my work schedule I had to cancel our reservation. I simply sent Patrice an email and she responded asking... More

Our family of 4 spent just one night here but would recommend it if you're looking for budget accomodations in Cruz Bay. It is small but clean. We needed to use the A/C in the bedroom at night. In the morning we walked to Dolphin Market to pick up breakfast, and then to Varlack to pick up our rental vehicle.... More

This was our second time in St. John and our second time staying at Samuel Cottages. The price is unbeatable, and it's so convenient to leave your car parked in your driveway and just walk down the hill into Cruz Bay for dinner. On the way back to the cottage after dinner, stop by the Dolphin Market to pick up... More

We stayed in Cottage #3 the week before Easter. Plenty of room for four people, easy parking (nice to have your own spot in Cruz Bay) and a great porch where we ate breakfast & dinner. It was hard to believe the price we were paying also included a beautiful view of Cruz Bay. Patrice is a gem to work... More

Very clean and close to town. We really enjoyed the stay here. There were four of us and we had plenty of room. Booking the room took some time, had to call and leave a message and wait for the owner to call back. All in all it was a great vacation.

We like to feel like we're part of the local culture when we travel. These cottages certainly fit the bill. We stayed in #3, best views, farthest from road noise, but bright sunshine and heat for 10 days in June/ July. There is AC.The walk to town is easy downhill and you pass the Dolphin Grocery Market on the way.... More
