We visited STX at the end of March and stayed at Cottages by the Sea. What a great place. We were originally staying in Commodore's Villa but were also upgraded to the Chart House. This is exactly where I want to stay on my next visit to the island. This cute little cottage on the beach was perfect for us. Paul and Lindy were very friendly and accomadating. Our cleaning person was Jennifer and she was just great...always greeting us with a smile and "good morning". Just a wonderful staff and well run facility.
This truely is one of the best beaches on STX. You can walk to the town of Fredriksted which was only busy on cruise ship days. We rented a jeep. I recommend going with a rental car if you want to explore the whole island as there is lots of stuff to see and do. It was perfect to have the beach 10 steps away and also have your vehicle a meer 10 steps away. We could lay on the beach and if we started feeling up for an adventure we would just walk right over to our jeep, hop in with our bathing suits on and go.
If you are in the mood to just relax at your cottage and spend most of your time there, it's great for that too. They have everything you need, full kitchen, grills, patios. There are a couple grocery stores a few minutes away to pick up food, supplies, beer, liquor, etc. There is even a very nice restaurant next door, Beachside Cafe. My only regret is that we never got a chance to eat there, although I heard many great things about their food. We were just so busy traveling around the island that we forgot to make time to eat at Beachside Cafe. That is on our list for our next visit as we will definitely be staying at Cottages again. I highly recommend this establishment!
