Cruz Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2, Private deck, close to Cruz Bay & beaches

The Cute Cozy Cottage has everything you would ever need for your stay with us.

Located in the beautiful neighborhood of Chocolate Hole, the cottage has convenient parking and a private entrance. It is only a 10-minute drive to the spectacular National Park beaches and a few minutes away from the lively town of Cruz Bay with great restaurants, casual eateries and unique island shops.

The air-conditioned bedroom features a queen bed with 100% cotton sheets, down pillows (others are available), fresh linens and mahogany furnishings. Just off the bedroom is a private deck with lounge chairs and umbrella, bar height table and bar stools perfectly situated to enjoy the view of the Caribbean sea and hill sides

The kitchen is well laid out, easy to work in and is fully equipped with Cuisinart cookware, Wustof knives, and all major and minor appliances, including a gas oven range and refrigerator. The Weber gas grill and dining table on the front deck is great for alfresco dining.

Sharing the kitchen space is a comfortable living area with large screen TV that comes with cable and videio- watching equipment. WIFI is available through out .

The cozy cottage is tastefully outfitted with mahogany furniture and cool Caribbean colors.

In an effort to insure your ultimate comfort we thought of everything you would want to make your Caribbean vacation ideal, down to sun screen, beach towels, beach chairs and a cooler for your days spent at the beach.

This lovely cottage is perfect for a couple with romance in mind or someone who just wants to relax between exploring our gorgeous island of St. John. When you are done doing that, just fix yourself a cool tropical drink, have a seat on the deck and listen to the palm trees blow in the breeze and watch an occasional sail boat glide on by. We can't wait to see you here!

Comfortable, and Clean! Cute, Cozy, Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Cute, Cozy, Cottage. We had never used VRBO before so to say I was skeptical is an understatement. After working with Craig and Jenifer we will definately be back!! Before the trip Jenifer was so helpful with all my questions and concerns. She was quick to respond and incredibly helpful. When we got there Craig met us at the dock and showed us any important stops along the way to the cottage. The cottage itself was amazing. It was much roomier than I had expected and the deck is quite large too with a wonderful view and comfortable zero gravity chairs to lay back in, or a bistro table and chairs. Every amenity you may need was there...I could have left half my luggage at home. The towels, sheets, pillows, and bed were all wonderful. There are wonderful light trade winds at night so we normally kept our windows open in the bedroom with the exception of a couple humid nights. It is all screened in, but even sitting outside we didn't get one mosquito bite the whole trip. The open air shower was great, and I would watch the hummingbirds hovering over the flowers from the neat! Craig and Jenifer we available for any questions if we needed them, but really left us alone and it is a very private cottage. We LOVED our stay and will absolutely be back!!

Truly a Cute Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in St. John, and this wonderful little cottage. We were greeted at the ferry terminal by Craig who escorted us to our car rental lot -- Denzel Clyne's . (This was one of the places recommended by Jennifer. While they (Clyne's) weren't particularly friendly, their vehicle was fine and less expensive than others in the area.) Craig proceeded to lead us to their cottage, pointing out places of interest (grocery stores, garbage drop off, restaurants) along the way. The cottage was everything their ad says it was and then some. There were coffee supplies, snacks, and other thoughtful amenities provided everywhere. We even had our choice of flavored rums for our enjoyment. We ate our breakfasts at the little bistro table each morning on the side deck next to a very pretty red flowering tree. Sunsets were on the front deck overlooking a vast beautiful panorama, with the ocean in the distance. It was a 20 minute or so drive (on the left side!) to get to most of the prettiest beaches you can imagine. What could be better--nothing! We highly recommend this place, if it sounds right for your needs. Note however: There are 43 steps to take down to the cottage from the road.

Owner's Response: Oops, I have never counted the steps but they are not steep with low risers and there is a landing part way down. Also there is an alternative entrance thru a gate on my property if you have a challenge with the steps. Thank you for staying with us, it was fun meeting you and your friends we look forward to your next visit. See you then!.

Perfect Little Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at the Cute, Cozy, Cottage. The property is located a few minutes outside of Cruz Bay, which is nice, because you're not in the middle of everything but close enough to the market and town. The views are gorgeous, and frankly the cottage is a little nicer than even the pictures show! It's very clean and spacious enough for two people who really like each other a lot! One added benefit for us was all of the books available at the house to take on your excursions. We're big readers and really appreciated it. Craig said "take one, leave one!" so enjoy Jurassic Park future guests ;)

It was a lovely place to spend an enjoyable Christmas week on St. John. Jennifer and Craig were awesome hosts and welcomed us with a snack basket and rum bar. They also provide beach chairs and a cooler for trips to the beach. We didn't see them at all, which was fine because we were on our honeymoon. We will be back for sure!

What an extraordinary honeymoon! Jennifer and Craig thought of everything for our stay. If you want a private and romantic time don't overlook this gem! The only thing we'd change is the sofa and tv for those lazy nights. The sofa is tiny as is the tv with not good sound quality. But who really cares when one is in paradise!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review, we loved meeting you guys, both so happy and carefree! Sorry about the Love Seat but a sofa is way to big for the space, I tried it. I feel the same way about the TV but I didn't know about the sound, will fix that for your return!! Hope to see you again soon!

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

I don't know why you would ever stay in a hotel when you can stay at the Cozy Cottage! We so appreciated being met at the dock, Craig got us to our car rental, waited while we did the paperwork and guided us back to the cottage; pointing out grocery stores and the gas station along the way. The cottage is very comfortable and homey, with an "outdoor" shower, great deck with an awesome view, and bedroom with cool breezes our favorites. Anything you would possibly need is there. We will definately be back for another stay!
