We've been fans of Cottages for many years, and they did not disappoint on this visit. They've added some rooms, so compact and efficient they could teach the Tiny House Movement a few things. Clean, friendly staff, nicely landscaped as always. We hated to leave. Don't

To begin, the place is beyond perfect. Nikki was super helpful getting us checked in and situated. we could not imagine staying anywhere else. Cottages by the Sea has an excellent beach, cute cottages with kitchens (we didn't eat out much), and a great vibe. We are already

Cottages By The Sea was recommended by a friend, and I am so glad we booked here! The view is to die for, the sunsets (and dawns) are sublime, we are steps from a near-perfect swimming beach, and adjacent to Beach Side Restaurant on one side and a miles-long uninhabited sandy

Our stay was one beautiful memory from start to finish. Blessed with great weather during our stay, this place lived up to its reputation. Most of the cottages are just feet away from the water in a Private beach with pristine white sands and crystal clear blue water. A little

Around $35 for taxi from the airport. Kinda expensive. No market but a few good places to eat and ride a bike. Pollys is great and just a 15 minute bike ride.

Everyone we have dealt with is amazingly helpful. Their website provides a great deal of information. The contact information is listed there. I cannot put the link here, but search in google and they are easy to find. It would be a beautiful place for a wedding.

"Beachfront are more $$ of course, but any just a few steps to beach."
"My impression was that most of the rooms were nice."
"Has the best beach on the Island. The Crow's Nest has the best view and breeze in the warm afternoons."
"The map on their website is not to scale - the beach SIDE cottages are only about 15-20 steps farther from the beach than the beach FRONT."
"Check their web site about specialty rooms."
