Perfect beachside accommodations with the best beach in Frederiksted! Rooms are clean and have everything you need for your stay, and all of the staff are friendly and helpful. We will definitely return.

Very cute and clean. Our room had a porch that looked right out to the ocean and their private beach was one of the nicest in the area.

Cottage By the Sea is a real find. The other positive reviews on Orbitz are accurate. It is a quaint setup with a very laid back feel. We stayed in Carol's Rest. Two adults and one nine year old in our group. It was just right for our family. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The place is well maintained given the recent storm damage to the island as a whole. The beach access is great. We visited many of the beaches on St. Croix. We found the beach at our Cottage to be the best that we visited. The hurricane exposed lots of limestone formations and it has lots of sea life to enjoy. We had a very good time exploring. We stayed 7 days and did not want to return home. We plan to visit again next year. We would like to thank the staff for a lovely stay. St. Croix as a whole has a long way to go in getting back to normal. Overall, we had a great time despite the setbacks. If you want a place to get away from the normal tourist trap scene, St. Croix has that to offer. The only negative aspects we encountered on the island was the very poor condition of the roads and lack of working traffic lights. The price of food is also very high compared with mainland US. We hope everyone supports St. Croix with their tourism. It will go a long way in the rebuilding efforts. Check rental car availability before booking your travel. Depending on the time, they can be hard to get.

My stay was during Irma.I felt completely save through it all from the confidence of Paul,one of the owners.Cottages By The Sea has a large generator that kept everything on except the TV which they had no control over.Great staff.I am glad we choose Cottages By The Sea.I would definitely come back for another vacation.Thank You PAUL AND YOUR STAFF FOR KEEPING SUSAN AND I SAVE.GOD BLESS YOU ALL......

Hi Jarrett, Thank you so much for your kind review. Your Orbitz (Expedia) reservation was for two adults only, so if we had known there were 3 in your party we would have tried harder to do some juggling to fit you into a larger family cottage, so always let us know the correct number of people in your party. We are glad that your were comfortable in the cottage named in honor of our mother, and we look forward to your return again one day soon.
