Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom, full kitchen, steps to the beach

This 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.

Base rates are $1,300/wk in slow season and $1,650/wk in high season.

Two guests maximum and no children. No smoking.

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 Judith's Fancy

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

Beachfront. Brand new everything. 15-foot ceilings.

Thank you for a wonderful time in St. Croix!

Wonderful Accommodations and More

  • 5 of 5

Our week-long stay in this beautiful cottage in the Judith's Fancy neighborhood was perfect! Chad and Emily have gone above and beyond to think of anything and everything their guests may need. We were so thankful for their provided beach chairs, a cooler, beach towels, snorkeling gear and a beach bag... we used them everyday. They also provide a Garmin GPS, which is a lifesaver if you use a cell provider with little coverage on the island. Other nice added amenities include filtered water, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, a lending library and some basic spices and condiments (likely left over from previous renters). The WiFi was also always strong and easy to connect to.

The location of the rental is the perfect central location for exploring all St. Croix has to offer. It is very close to grocery stores (we liked Food Town), is just 10-15 minutes from Christiansted's shops, boardwalk and restaurants, and is an easy trek to both the eastern and western (Frederiksted) parts of the island.

We highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for wonderful, private accommodations. Thank you Chad and Emily for being great hosts!

Excellent place to stay and relax!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to St. Croix several times, however, we found this rental to be the best! The owners were extremely helpful and accommodating. They provided information on dining, excursions, grocery shopping and included a map of the island. They even helped locate someone on the island that would rent a surfboard to my husband for the duration of our stay.

The cottage was clean and well maintained and had everything anyone could possibly need. We enjoyed being right on the beach and this location is great for taking walks in the morning and afternoons. The central location makes all points on the island easily accessible. We would not change a thing and would recommend this cottage to anyone!

Beautiful place to stay, perfect place to stay in St. Croix!

  • 5 of 5

Chad and Emily were the perfect vacation hosts: Unobtrusive, yet available to resolve any problems encountered! Not only did they guide us in when we got lost upon arrival, but they replaced the refrigerator (with a new one), without question, as soon we reported a problem!

The view from the cottage was beautiful, the cottage itself was immaculate, the community secure - who could ask for more?

Comfortable, Clean, Modern, Up-scale Cozy Cottage - just as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

Our need (my wife and I) on this trip for a short planned 5 night stay on St. Croix was to find a comfortable place to stay/locate in the Judith's Fancy area for a family event with other family members on the Island. This cottage was perfect for us, with all the modern conveniences available for a pleasant stay. Chad & Emily were very gracious hosts, and immediately available if we had any questions throughout our stay. It was also very assuring to see that St Croix has recovered very well after last years storms and is back to being an Island vacation destination. This Cottage, near the ocean, in a secure location is a perfect couples place to stay. D & J
