We were in St. Croix for 5 days before heading to Puerto Rico for another 5 days. I can't stress enough how much we wish we had just stayed in St. Croix for th whole 10 days! It was all due to the amazing experience we had at the Cottages by the Sea. Everything was perfect.
The owner is very friendly and hospitable. The staff is the same. They had a bottle of Cruzan rum and 2 cokes in our room waiting for our arrival. They gave us ideas of where to eat and what to do while we were there. They even did the dishes for us during our stay.
The owner just so happened to be going to Puerto Rico for a few days while we were there. He offered to meet up with us for dinner or something, unfortunately it did not work out for us to get to San Juan while he was there, but it was so nice of him to offer to meet us.
The place was spotless, no bugs at all in the room. No dirt or sand. It is not a resort but more of a rustic setting with rooms that have everything you need but not the "best" of everything. It is so laid back and relaxing there. The view is to die for and the snorkeling right out side our room was incredible. We saw a lot of different fish and coral in the water.
They have a friendly dog and cats that hang around, helping with our homesickness and missing our pet. I can't recommend this place enough. We will be back as often as we can.
