Where to even begin? My husband a I spent three days in the Cone Shell cottage which was perfect for us! It was right behind the office, and literally steps away from the most picturesque beach. It was our first time in St. Croix, but it won't be our last.
As many commenters have mentioned, this place is perfect: the beaches, the weather, the activities, and the restaurants were all idyllic. But, I wanted to take a quick moment to recognize the most important characteristic of this charming place - the people. Paul (the owner), literally went above and beyond for my husband and I the first night we arrived.
I, for some odd reason, was really craving a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. But with no car, there was seemingly no way I'd be able to satisfy my craving. I'd have to wait several more days until I got home to indulge. Or so I thought! The people at Cottages really do everything they can to make you feel at home. Paul was so kind to offer to drive my husband and I to the grocery store to buy some essentials so that I could satisfy my cravings many times over. But, before we took off he insisted that we stick around for the most beautiful sunset ever! Thank goodness we did, if you've never seen the "green flash" in person, I'd suggest you make the trip to Cottages just for that reason alone!
After we left the grocery store, Paul even provided us with an impromptu tour of the beautiful city and pointed out several recommendations for coffee and food options. To say that Cottages is a great place to visit is an understatement. No pictures or reviews do this place justice. Having spent many hours traversing the island, I can honestly say that there's no other place on this island better than Cottages. So, what are you waiting for? Come see for yourself!
