This is the best place to stay if you want a nice beach near a town. The beach is very long you can walk in both directions. They are still recovering from the hurricane and just cable back a couple days into our stay. Internet in the room was spotty and did not work most of the time but worked great on the beach. They give you a bottle of rum along with 2 cokes to start you off. Disappointed as there was not much snorkeling off the beach which is the main reason we came to St Croix. There were some fish but not what we were used to. Island has a long way to go to come back.

We visited Cottages in April 2018. This was the third time we've stayed at Cottages, and our first trip back since 2012. We stayed in our favorite cottage, Crows Nest, which had been remodeled since our last visit. The remodel was nice, but not that important to us - we go there for the location and the privacy of Crows Nest. The rooms are still very clean thanks to Carmen and Ellie, and the property is very low key and quiet. We love that we can cook our own meals, thanks to a full kitchen and on-site gas grills - that way we get to eat what we want, when we want, with an amazing sea view and no need to get dressed up. This year we didn't venture out - we've done the sightseeing before, and we were happy just hanging out on the beach and snorkeling. We had heard that the beach had lost sand during the hurricane, but when we were there, you couldn't tell. The snorkeling was definitely different than it was 6 years ago - some may be from the hurricane shifting sands, and some from six more years of whatever... But what remained the same was a great variety of fish and ease of snorkeling steps from your cottage. We saw lots of fish (including a porcupine fish - which was a first for us), turtles, and rays and even saw an eel one day! We love Cottages, and we wondered why we stayed away so long! We will definitely return and we recommend to anyone interested in a low key, quiet beach holiday.

Thank you so VERYYY MUCHHHH for pointing out that we are not a Bed and Breakfast and we never have been. It confuses our guests that TripAdvisor puts us in this category, but oh well....life goes on for our little hotel on the beach. We appreciate the 5 star review and we hope you plan to visit with us again soon.

I have been coming here for years,it's a gorgeous hotel on the beach, they don't serve breakfast and tripsadvisor is refusing to change how they have it listed. The owners are amazing, you won't be disappointed in this location.

Thank you Melissia! We appreciate the shout out that we are miscategorized on TripAdvisor. We have sent them our business license as a hotel, but they refuse to accept it. We thank you for your 5 star review and we hope you plan to visit with us again one day soon.
