Since kitchens are available in all but three of our Cottages (Crew, Coco Bean and Sylvia) it is important to know where to go to stock up on groceries for your stay with us. Below is a list of the local stores:
Grocery Stores Closest to Frederiksted:
- Plaza Extra West Supermarket: www.plazaextra.com (340-719-1870)
The largest grocery store on the island is located about 4 miles from Cottages by the Sea on Centerline Road. In addition to fresh produce, you will find a pharmacy, bakery and pizza, liquor and wine, and vegetarian selections.
Directions: From Hannah’s Rest intersection, take Centerline/Queen Mary Highway/70 east/ for 4 miles (past K-Mart) and you will find Plaza Extra on the left.
- Stop and Shop:
A medium size grocery store, this store is only 1.5 miles from away from Cottages by the Sea. It does not have the same large selection of foods that Plaza Extra provides, but it carries all of the basics that you will need to stock your cottage. If you are coming from the airport, this store is the most convenient to stop at on the way to cottages.
Directions: Only a quarter of a mile east of Hannah’s Rest Corner on Centerline Road
- K-Mart: We have two full sized K-Marts in St Croix which provide all of the same items you would purchase from any other K-Mart, including non perishable foods and drinks, alcohol, pharmacy items, toiletries, clothes, swim gear, etc. There are Little Caesars Pizza restaurants and pharmacies located in both K-Mart Stores.
- Directions: The closest K-Mart to the Cottages is on Centerline Road at Sunshine Mall, 3 miles east of Frederiksted, and the other K-Mart is located at Sunny Isle Shopping Center which is mid-island, at the end of Melvin Evans highway.
