Overview

Judith's Fancy Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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.

Relaxing, Private and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our 25th Anniversary at Chad and Emily's beachfront cottage. Chad and Emily are very accommodating and everything positive you read in the reviews is true! The cottage is located adjacent to the beach which is essentially vacant and very private. Sitting on the patio at the cottage and at night you can hear the waves which is very relaxing and will put you to sleep - day and night. The cottage is centrally located on St. Croix which makes it easy to visit the island and the various beaches and everything the island has to offer. It is also very close to Christiansted where we found some very good restaurants with fresh and innovative cocktails and food. If you go to the Cruzan Distillery go in the afternoon because they are very generous with the sample drinks!! We were pleasantly surprised at what there was to offer on St. Croix and remember to stay to the left and look twice! It is a great place to visit and Chad and Emily's cottage is the perfect place to stay.

Wonderful Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time. We were greeted by Jamie who gave us an overview of the island and mentioned some key places to check out. The cottage is just perfect. It's in a secure, private and quiet location. It was easy to get around and enjoy all St. Croix had to offer. Thanks for the wonderful reception we will be back.

Very Impressed

  • 5 of 5

Everything that people say about this place is 100% true. This place is wonderful and the owners couldn't have been more accommodating. Things that I wondered about were: 1) how close is the house to neighbors. ~ there is no adjacent neighbor with a wonderful view of nature. 2) what type of privacy do I have? ~ you have your own private yard, driveway and the cottage is not connected to the main house. You are in a safe community as well. 3) what's the beach like ~ there are waves but they are not too bad compared to the East Coast USA. Boyfriend got in but stood up the entire time. Nice set up of beach chairs provided if you like to sit and read on a beach 4) Are we close to beaches where we can swim ~ yes... you are provided with pamphlets, GPS unit and other helpful things. You can go anywhere with a car. 5) was this better than renting a hotel room. ~ Yes. we were provided snorkel gear, laundry facilities, kitchen, gps unit, loaner cell phone, direct access to owner if we had any questions, tips, restaurant recommendations, beach towels, chairs, umbrella, cooler, beach bag, loaner reading library, condiments in the fridge, high quality shampoo, Rum, Cookies..YUM! This is a well thought out household. They made travel real easy. Bring less because they have likely provided it. Thank you Chad and Emily for also taking care of us as we needed a doctor referral while on the island. All is well. Kenny & Loretta Pennsylvania

Gorgeous and peaceful - Ocean Vista Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We got married the day after arriving and stayed for our honeymoon. Ocean Vista Cottage was the perfect choice - we were so impressed with the gorgeous cottage, the location and owners!!! It is well maintained and well equipped with everything you need including beach chairs and snorkeling gear. It was so peaceful and quiet and we slept wonderfully in the king sized bed. The highlights: personalized wedding cookies baked by Emily along with a congratulatory bottle of Prosecco, the pergola where we had breakfast and later a couples massage while listening to the ocean and birds, and our own private beach! Chad and Emily go above and beyond to make you feel at home and welcome. They provided directions and gave great recommendations for dining. The location of the cottage was perfect as we traveled between Christiansted, Frederiksted, and Buck Island. We highly recommend the cottage for your stay on St. Croix.
