Cottages By The Sea presents an exceptional opportunity for the savvy investor to purchase a well-established, cash-flowing boutique hotel in St. Croix, USVI. Established in 1949, this amazing 2 acre tract of beachfront land features the most picturesque Caribbean views and has been extremely well maintained. As one of the longest-standing hotels on the island, it has an exceptional reputation and is often referred to as the “happy place” of frequent guests. The hospitality aspect of the property is composed of 28 cottages, each uniquely designed. The cottages are all named and are different sizes. Among the cottages, there are 23 full kitchens and 6 kitchenettes (no oven). Each unit also features keyless entry and covered outdoor areas (with the exception of one cottage).

On the grounds, immaculate tropical landscaping can be found at each turn. For guest convenience and enjoyment, there are two beachfront patios (with BBQ), on-site laundry, and a Yoga Deck. On a practical note, the property also features an on-site office, storage sheds, 3 parking lots, City Water/ Cisterns, and WAPA electric.

Ideally located on the West end of the island, this property is located only 1/2 mile south of the quaint town of Frederiksted, a popular place for day-trips among guests. This is a rare opportunity to add a highly-reputed, unique property to your portfolio in a favorable economic/tax environment.

This amazing property has a calm, clear, and pristine beach with minimal rocks and no sargassum or seaweed. There is a beautiful view of the cruise ships when they frequently arrive at the Frederiksted Pier to the north and to the south is the Sandy Point National Wildlife Refuge. The most stunning view is the spectacular and serene sunset. 


The Snorkeling is the BEST!
