Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom, full kitchen

This brand new 1B/1B oceanfront cottage with a full kitchen sits in a gated community on St. Croix's north shore. The property finished construction March 2012. Sit and watch the surfers, windsurfers, kite surfers, turtles, whales, kayakers, and pelicans cruise through the water from the cottage deck or walk the 25 yards down to the beach for an even closer look. You may even run into a 500 pound turtle making a nest. Walk/run/bike the 9 miles of private roads within the safe gated community. Great central location for exploring all that St. Croix has to offer. 4 miles to downtown Christiansted.

The property was shown on an episode of HGTV's House Hunter's International (Caribbean Quandary). Check it out at the end of the show.

St. Croix is the largest of the US Virgin Islands, but it remains a well-kept secret in comparison to St. Thomas and St. John. St. Croix is much quieter and more laid-back. The island offers water sports in abundance, such as scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, sailing, kayaking, surfing, and kite-surfing, with numerous beaches to explore. St. Croix has two small towns (Christiansted and Frederiksted) that have duty-free shopping and historic architecture. St. Croix offers something for everyone. Come relax on this wonderful island. No passports needed for US citizens.

St. Croix isn't just the largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, but it also boasts the Caribbean's largest living reef. And it is the only spot in the region where you can dive a wall that drops more than 13,000 feet.

Rates are $1,300/wk in the summer and $1,650/wk in the winter.

Sorry, two guests maximum and no children.

About Chad Walter

Chad and Emily moved to St. Croix in 2008. They proceeded to build their dream home on the beach in 2011, finishing in 2012. They decided to build a separate cottage to rent out to couples looking for something different, something more private than what is offered at hotels.

Chad Walter purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Chad Walter chose St. Croix

The location of this property is on the beach in the gated community of Judith's Fancy. The neighborhood has 9 miles of roads to walk and run all while looking out at the turquoise water. The property is situated mid-island, so you are a short drive to anything you want to explore in St. Croix. We are located approximately 4 miles west of Christiansted.

What makes this cottage unique

Brand new everything. 15-foot ceilings.

EXCEEDS EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5

I am the type of person that doesn't write reviews on anything (products/experiences/etc) - but I am writing a review of our Honeymoon Stay at THIS cottage because it deems worthy of it!!! ALL of the excellent reviews of this cottage are CORRECT!! And they are not exaggerating! This beach cottage will EXCEED your expectations!! It is cozy! It is beautiful! It is homey! It is everything you could have ever wanted! And the private beach just steps away from the stunning porch is breathtaking!! We LOVED every moment we spent at this property during our honeymoon and would HIGHLY recommend booking your stay there!! Chad and Emily are just the SWEETEST of hosts!! They have thought of EVERYTHING to make your stay perfect! Being able to wash our clothes/towels during our stay was a real life-saver - we arrived home with NO dirty laundry! All of the suggestions in previous reviews are spot on - PACK WATER SHOES!!! Having those saved our trip! The beach is very rocky (has coral reef right there) with sea urchins dotting the whole stretch. But don't be discouraged by that!! It's still stunning! So neat to explore AND you can still swim there! The gated community really provides a sense of security and safety for you. The view from the porch is stunning and you can hear the ocean while you sleep at night! Staying here was the BEST choice for us!! Private/secluded/gorgeous/and on and on and on!! Thank you Chad and Emily for making our honeymoon better than we could have hoped for!!

Great Home Base for our Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here in Judith's Fancy. It was a perfect home base for exploration around ST. Croix. Cottage was neat, clean, and footsteps away from the beach! Definitely check out beaches at Cane Bay, Isaac's​ Bay, and Sandy Point on weekends.

Modern and beautiful cottage to explore the island from.

  • 5 of 5

Our wonderful hosts met us to deliver a quick tour of the cottage and give some local advice on what to see on St. Croix during our stay. The cottage is super cute and equipped with everything you need for adventures on the beach and also staying in. We had an awesome time on the island, from Sandy Point on the west side all the way to Pt. Udall on the east coast. All of the points of interest and restaurant recommendations were solid. We will be coming back!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were excited for our stay on St. Croix Island in Chad and Emily's Honeymoon Cottage and it was even better than what we had hoped. We were met at the cottage with warm cookies and a bottle of Island Rum the night we arrived, and given personalized and pertinent information related to our week on St. Croix. We chose to cook most of our meals at the cottage. All the dishes and cooking tools we needed were available. The cottage has a washer and dryer, beach towels, snorkeling equipment, books, games, and pretty much anything you may need for a weeks stay away from home that will include lots of relaxation and beach time. The home and setting was peaceful, quiet and beautiful. I have recommended the cottage to many of my friends and family already and hope we can return again some time. Art and Irene
