About the Hotel:

Established in 1949 by our grandparents, Harold and Genevieve Benedict, this family owned and operated beachfront, boutique hotel, is located on the western end of the beautiful island of St. Croix in the United States Virgin Islands.  We are located 1/2 mile south of the quaint town of Frederiksted.

Spread across almost 2 acres of beachfront property, Cottages by the Sea has long been a place where guests come to relax, reflect and get away from everyday life. The Caribbean living of simple cottages, dazzling sunsets, uncomplicated demands, rejuvenating breezes, and friendly people will provide you with a new place to escape to.  We hope that you will soon call Cottages by the Sea your “home away from home”.

With 26 uniquely different cottages, and without the hustle and bustle of a large resort, Cottages by the Sea has slowly evolved over the past 65-70 years to offer authentic and old-style Caribbean pleasure to you, our valued guest.  Enjoy swimming and snorkeling in the warm, calm, crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea, or bask in the sun while lounging in one of our colorful beach chairs.  Enjoy sea glass hunting, grilling, bike riding, kayaking, reading from our library and playing a friendly game from our game closet.  Take a walk around our property while taking in the aroma of the lush, tropical landscaping.  Gather with friends while lounging in our garden gazebo.  Enjoy your nightly cocktail while gathering with other guests on one of our common patios to enjoy the sunset and while looking for the elusive “green flash”.

All of our cottages offer full kitchens (except our 4 small hotel rooms), comfortable beds, private bathrooms, easy beach access, cool tropical breezes, Caribbean décor, unique artwork, private patios and air conditioning.

Cottages by the Sea is the perfect vacation getaway for those who are looking to completely unwind, relax and experience what a Caribbean vacation is supposed to be – all at a reasonable price.  Our magical property has long been a place where guests look forward to coming back to year after year.  Most of our guests are repeat guests, and we hope you will be too!

The Cottages are right next door to the Sand Castle on the Beach and is more or less connected to the main wedding venue.  This is the perfect place to stay if you are not staying at the Sand Castle.

Please call the hotel directly to make reservations or book online. Be sure to select the dates for 6/20/18-6/27/18 to see availability online.
