Flag of Denmark


"Established in 1949, Cottages by the Sea is a quaint, family run and value priced vacation escape, located just south of Frederiksted on a perfect stretch of sandy, white beach on the Caribbean island of St. Croix, in the US Virgin Islands."

Family Stays

Cottages by the Sea is the perfect place to spend quality time with your family.  The absence of a swimming pool helps our guests discover the gentle waters of the Caribbean Sea, as well as snorkeling and the underwater sea life!  The close proximity of your cottage to the sea shore makes it convenient to watch your children on the beach from your cottage.  And, the property is small enough and isolated enough that parents feel comfortable allowing their children out of their sight. 

When you are ready to venture off the property you will find a dozen tourist attractions all within a 10 minute drive of the Cottages. Please see our "Local Attractions" tab for more information about these attrractions that include: the rain forest, Dominoe Club and the Beer drinking pigs, 3 museums, Fort Frederik, the Cruzan Rum factory, St. George Botanical Gardens, ATV tours, Jill & Paul's HorsebackRriding, Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Jet Skiing, Gecko ATV Adventures and the Frederiksted Pier.
