Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom, full kitchen

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

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 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.

Worth Every Minute

  • 5 of 5

The house itself is perfect size. It was clean and had everything that we needed. The kitchen had all tools you need and was a good size. There were plenty of towels for use at the condo and towels for the beach, as well as beach chairs. The homeowners are extremely nice and accommodating. They even went out of their way when we needed a few unnecessary extras. THANK YOU! Chad and Emily provided good suggestions for our trip and were helpful in answering any questions. The beach was touched a bit by the hurricane, as was the whole island. Regardless the beach was still beautiful and peaceful.

Beaches:

The island offered numerous beaches and we took full advantage. Each beach had it's own characteristics. Cane's beach was close and smaller. It was low key and wasn't subject to much tourist action. Rainbow beach was active and beautiful. It offered rentals for water activities. Hands-down our favorite was Isaac's Bay. The short hike provided panoramic views and butterflies fluttered creating a majestic feel. The beach was untouched beauty. There was only the sound of the ocean waves and a clear mind. Pictures could not do it justice.

Food:

You cannot go wrong with any of the food. We went to numerous restaurants with varying prices. We were not disappointed one bit, or bite. There are superb and varying flavors on the island. We utilized the list from Chad and Emily, locals, and TripAdvisor. We couldn't fit in all the places because there were too many.

MOST IMPORTANTLY:

The people of the island are amazing. Chad and Emily were the first to show generosity and sincerity, which was followed by so many others we met. Complete strangers bought us drinks, our anniversary dinner, and insisted we try food the we were eye googling. I've never experienced such consistent kindness and generosity. The hurricane may have altered and damaged the island but it did not affect kindness of the people. The island shined and worked it's way into our heart. It was the first vacation that I truly did not want to leave. We will be back, without a doubt.

Thank you Chad and Emily for everything. You are beautiful souls and compliment the vibe of the island.

BEST accommodations, BEST location, BEST hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Since we are considering a move to St Croix, we didn't want to stay at a hotel...we wanted to get a feel for 'living' on St Croix. We couldn't have selected a better location. And the hospitality of Emily and Chad just added to the perfect location for our trip. Even being on generator power for half our stay (thanks to Maria), the accommodations and hospitality were second to none. We would stay there again without question...if we weren't already in the process of making an offer on a home there. Emily and Chad thought of EVERYTHING for their cottage guests. I can personally guarantee you will make the right choice by staying here.

St. Croix is open for business!

  • 5 of 5

Please don’t let the 2017 hurricane season dissuade you from visiting this beautiful island. There are properties and structures that remain devastated, but the beaches are beautiful and clean. Additionally, the vast majority of restaurants are open; my husband and I ate very well on St. Croix (the Savant courtyard was our standout dining experience). The cottage itself is very clean and comfortable. It contained everything that we needed during our stay. The best part was its location – right on the water and an excellent jumping off point for exploring the island. Chad and Emily were friendly, helpful hosts. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay in their cottage again or recommend the experience to others.

Beautiful cottage steps from the beach. Perfect location for exploring all parts of the island. Owners thoughtfully provide items to help you enjoy your beach vacation a small cooler, snorkeling gear, portable folding chairs... Also, the ocean view - the sea breeze - the waves crashing! Amazing!!!

Fantastic Tropical Honeymoon Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My new bride and I stayed here at the end of July for our honeymoon and could not have picked a better place to stay while enjoying St Croix. Chad and Emily are fantastic hosts and even took the time to send us a thank you letter after our adventure. When we arrived Chad greeted us at the door with a plate of customized cookies and a bottle of sparkling wine. The home more than met our needs and was the perfect jump off point for exploring the island and it's abundance of culture. Two days in and we had already decided that we would be coming back. If you are craving the tropics but don't want all the busyness of the tourist traps then St Croix is for you!

Awesome & Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome visit in St. Croix staying at Chad and Emily's cottage! We were greeted by Chad and shown around and were welcomed with amazing cookies made by Emily. It was so special and the accomadations were perfect for us. We were in a great location and the cottage was beautiful appointed. We loved having the beach a short walk through a cool shell lined trail. The BBQ worked out for grilling our dinners and we watched sunset on the patio. The area was quiet and we were able to walk the neighborhood and even saw some deer! Thank you and we can't wait to return!
