East End cottage description
Set on a one-mile beach bordering a calm-water bay, this West Indian–style resort adjoins a nature/bird sanctuary. Historic Christiansted is three miles away.
Guests enjoy the beach (two minute walk from our cottage), snorkel off the beach, sunbathe around a lovely sea-view pool, or enjoy the shaded pool gazebo. The resort’s restaurant is right at the beach and probably the most beautiful/romantic setting on the island. The separate bar area is also right at the beach.
Our cottage is a luxury studio, one-half of a two-unit building. The resort has the feeling of a little village with 35 small cottages in a lovely setting. We are on a low slope with a lovely covered porch facing flowering gardens with views of the ocean. One minute walk to our beach. Kitchenette with cooktop, refrigerator, microwave, dishes, pots and pans, etc. We have a terrific, covered porch where we read, paint, eat by candlelight, rock in the rocking chair, watch sunsets, etc.
What we love about Chenay Bay is the beautiful surroundings, the relaxed, quiet, friendly atmosphere. Children are welcome. Honeymoon couples are here often as well. Many people have been coming back for over ten years. If you want beaches right here at Chenay bay we have three beaches, each with their own character. At the resort a lovely beach (voted best beach on St. Croix by the Virgin Island Daily News)with palm trees and sun umbrellas. It has never been crowded in the many years we have been here. Great for kids too. Adjacent to the left is a long beach with no development which borders the nature preserve. Great for walking and collecting shells. On the right is another very long beach with minimal development where you can walk for 1/2 hour or more before you turn back.
A woman from Italy who has traveled the Carribean and the world came here for the first time and said (after driving around and checking out the other resorts on the island) that this place and this island are so delightful and relaxing that she wants to come back next year.
I talked to a fellow coming home on the plane who came down to St. Croix for the first time to scuba dive. He said it was the best he had ever experienced.
A couple from North Carolina told me they drove all over the island checking the 'best' beaches in the guidebook and thought Chenay Bay was the best. Many other beaches and resorts are quite windy. Chenay Bay is in a cove and protected by a small island.
There is so much to do on St. Croix. (Caribbean Travel and Life magazine featured St. Croix as “the next hip Caribbean destination” in an 11-page feature spread.) Chenay Bay is very conveniently located near Christiansted, a delightful small, historic city with interesting shops, art galleries, terrific restaurants, oceanside bars. Martha Stewart came here on vacation with her family and wrote a blog about her great time.

Relaxing at Chenay Bay
Relaxing at Chenay Bay
My friend and I just spent a very relaxing week at Chenay Bay Resort. The studio apartment was clean and welcoming and the views from the porch were breath-taking, especially the sunsets. We could always find an empty beach chair on the beach or at the pool where we could relax, read a book, take a nap, cool off in the water, or simply do nothing. We had stayed at Chenay Bay three years ago, and am sorry to say, with the change in ownership, the resort, in general, is not as crisp as it once was. That did not stop us from enjoying our week in the sun at Chenay Bay, nor will it stop us from visiting again in the future.

Recommended for: Sightseeing, pet owners, families with young children.
We enjoyed our stay at Chenay Bay very much. The cottage was very nice and met our needs. We really liked having the kitchen facilities. Bob and Sue always made sure we were happy and even provided some additional kitchen supplies (dish soap, paper towels, etc)to get us going. The beach and pool at Chenay Bay are beautiful. Kayaks, sunfish and snorkel gear are all available for guest use. Everyone we met there was very nice. We plan on visiting again!

We are returning in 2/08 for our second visit to this charming duplex. Its setting is quiet and private, with a beautiful beach view from the porch. We appreciated the relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff, and we had access to interesting long walks. We enjoyed most of our meals at the resort restaurant, which served very nice food. All in all, St. Croix is absolutely charming, and we think Chenay Bay is a totally pleasant place with everything you need for a Caribbean escape.

Chenay Bay occupies a superb location on St.Croix offering delightful views at all times of the day and night. It has a wonderful private beach replete with lots of beach "toys" (sea kayaks, et.al.), a large pool, jacuzzi, tennis courts and a lovely outdoor restaurant/bar with good food and live music. I'd go back in a heartbeat. Christine Stewart Stewart International Travel Consultants

A nicely renovated half cottage, perfect for a couple. We had many breakfasts on the porch enjoying one of the best views on the Island. The restaurant in the complex has excellent food at reasonable prices. The friendly and casual atmosphere here makes for a relaxing vacation.

We spent ten days in this wonderful property in 2006, and enjoyed the apartment, the full facility, and the island immensely. The staff were very friendly and helpful; the food was excellent (and plentiful!) and the atmosphere was restful. We particularly enjoyed the waterfront activities-- boating, snorkeling, swimming, and taking a picnic in a kayak to a secluded island,. We would recommend this property for couples seeking a relaxing time away from the glitter and bustle, but close enough to good restaurants and shopping to enjoy a balanced and restful vacation.

Owner response: Just to clarify, the "apartment" is one half of a cottage, all on the ground level, with it's own private porch and entrance

About the owner: We first came to Chenay Bay in 2000 when we visited our son who opened and managed the Cape Air station at the airport. Chenay Bay was just starting to sell timeshares at that time. We found the low-key, quiet, atmosphere along with the beautiful beaches, flowers and trees so pleasant that we bought two weeks. Over the years since then we bought more weeks. The cottage we have is just right for us with it's lovely porch with ocean views and no other cottages behind us.
