All of St Croix is amazing, but we could not be happier with our decision to stay at the Cottages @ Cane Bay.
Being on the North Shore means access to some of the best beaches in St Croix, and being on property with Sweet Bottom Dive shop is even more convenient! We walked from our rooms to the scuba shop, geared up, and walked into the water for our dives!
The Landing restaurant on property is also amazing. Seriously some of the best food we are while on the island, and a 1 min walk from our room!
The check in process was smooth as can be. Win, the property owner, is on-site and very accessible if you have questions. She also told us about walking trails on the property, best places to see, etc etc. She's been on St Croix 53 years, so she's quite familiar with the island.
As for the actual cottage, it was exactly what we expected based on the pictures. AC works great, being between the beach and the mountain makes for great scenery and sounds. We could sit on the front or back porch depending on what view we wanted.
Wildlife on the property is interesting and abundant. Had a very large crab visit our porch one evening. And watched about 10 sea turtles play in the ocean on the beach one evening. The converted longhouses means you share a very very long porch with other residents (you have your own space for sure) which was great for visiting and meeting others on vacation.
Pleasantly surprised by the # of spices & staples (sugar, ketchup, coffee) that was in the kitchen, and in the bathroom (body wash, sunscreen, tanning oil, cotton balls). There were also towels for the beach & chairs we could take with us to visit other beached around the island.
Can't beat this place for the price. Its not the Taj Mahal, but simplicity & function where 10/10 :-)
