Based on a friend’s recommendation we chose to dive with N2 the Blue and through their website found Cottages by the Sea. What a perfect little place to spend a week! They are conveniently located about a mile from downtown Frederiksted. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with a full kitchen, plenty of storage, air conditioning, and free wifi....

I am a travel agent and this was my first trip to the island of St. Croix. My sweetheart picked out the hotel and we could not have stayed in a more perfect place for our trip.

We can't say enough amazing things about "Cottages by the sea"! We stayed in the Charthouse with our family of six. They made sure there was a bed for every person. They moved furniture around to accommodate a set of bunk beds, two twins and a very large king bed for each person to have their own space to sleep....

What a lovely place! The cottage was spacious and clean. It had a kitchen, a sitting area, A/C and a flat screen TV. The open air restaurant next door had great food. Here's what was free: Wi-Fi, kayaks, flippers, rafts, goggles, sunscreen, beach towels, books, magazines and daily maid service. Everyone is welcoming and the atmosphere is casual. Just steps...
