“Finally a place in St. John average people can Afford”
Reviewed March 28, 2005

Samuels cottages, while certainly not the Ritz, is an excellent spot to hang your hat for a week or longer. It is just on the edge of town at the top of the hill next to a big white church in a more residential area. There is a small market a block away. The owners Julian and Patrice were very friendly and if engaged in conversation are only too happy to give suggestions. Also they have many guide books at the house for planning daily excursions. The cottages have the amenities inside of most state park cabins. stove, fridge, etc but also have a seperate kitchen and livingroom and a private bedroom. The front porch looks out onto the bay from the top of the hill. The money we saved allowed us to do the extra things we wanted when we got to the island. Rent a tracker and see the island. 33 beaches and we could only manage to visit 9 in a week. You are so busy throuout the day that where you sleep at night really becomes less of a priority but the cottages are quite comfortable to come "home" to just the same. The number I have is 340-776-6643. Its in the Sprint included area and your cell will actually work on the left side of the island. Give this place a try and be able to afford the things the other half enjoy.

We loved our stay at Samuel Cottages. It was just what we were looking for. No fills, convenient to Cruz Bay, and a great price. The owners were absolutely lovely people who I now count as friends. But, a cautionary note, these are not the type of accomodations that many St.
John vacationers are looking for. This place is more like a Minnesota fishing cabin than a wanna be millionaire's home. We have been to St.
John many times and have stayed at a variety of places. I have loved them all. Samuel Cottages are perfect for those of us who are coming to St. John to relax, enjoy the beaches and snorkle our fool heads off.
The location allowed us to walk into town each night for dinner and not worry about parking, driving, etc. The money we saved by staying here is going to allow us to come back sooner than later.
