Cotton Valley Shores villa description

Cotton House is a very private estate on the beach with ocean views of Buck Island. This luxurious villa is surrounded by lush, tropical gardens. Relax in one of three colonial West Indies styled bedrooms, take a dip in our private pool, dive into the Caribbean just steps away from the house, or kayak out to Buck Island.

Beautifully furnished and completely air-conditioned ; every room can select desired temperature ,Cotton House has been featured on the Landmark House Tour. This villa offers three bedrooms/bath suites, a large pool with cabana, and direct access to the ocean for snorkeling and beachcombing. The Great Room combines living and dining areas with the well-equipped kitchen, and white tile and walls provide a soothing counterpoint to elegant furnishings with lively accents of color. Sliding glass doors open to a shady veranda which overlooks Buck Island.


Steps lead down to a large pool and sun deck with a cabana and another dining area and outdoor grill.

Tall palms and other exotic plantings completely screen both sides of the pool area for complete privacy. Stairs of native stone set into the lawn lead down to the pebbled seashore and adjoining beach.

Take advantage of our concierge service who will take care of your every need, so you can have the perfect, private, peaceful getaway.The Cotton House is over 5000 square feet of living space, covered gallery, covered and open patios. The house and grounds are surrounded by a stone retaining wall, which adds to the privacy.

After beachcoming or relaxing by the pool, three bedroom suites offer a cool change, two with king sized beds and one with side by side twins. The first master suite is just off the Great Room; just outside is a private garden patio.

Opposite the Great Room are two more air-conditioned bedroom/bath suites; a second king suite, and a third bedroom suite with two twin beds and a private sun deck.

Tropical elegance on a special beach, sparkling blue and turquoise water, unbelievable views and soft breezes - that is what awaits you at the Cotton House. Set high on its terraced lot, the house and gallery provide exceptional views of the National Sea Shore, Buck Island, and the lovely sailboats that visit daily. Whether it is relaxing by the sandy shores, snorkeling or diving into a nearby reef, exploring an underwater shipwreck, or engaging in a vast array of water sports (sailboating, wind surfing, parasailing), the Cotton House has it all.

                              Year Purchased: 2004

                              About the owner: Dr. Edward Delaney is a retired university professor and administrator. His wife, Dr. Betty Anderson is a prominent scientist who manages an international risk assessment practice. In summer, we enjoy sailing our Little Harbor, Blue Star, on the Chesapeake Bay and East Coast, but winters take us to St Croix and the Carribean.

                              Why the Owner Chose Cotton Valley Shores:
                              We sailed throughout the Carribean over the years, but only discovered St Croix in recent years. We wondered how we missed this beautiful island, but immediately fell in love with its natural wonders, rich culture and wonderful people. So purchasing Cotton House was an easy decision. We began extensive rennovations immediately and agrred to allow Cotton House By the Sea to be featured on the Landmark House Tour in 2005. Every year we add addiitonal featured In 2014 we have replaced all appliances, added fans and lovely latterns to our gallery and pool side. We love the property and see that it gets loving care each year. .

                              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                              Cotton House By the Sea is set in botanical gardens that offer complete privacy. Gates mark the entrance, sweet smelling frenzy pansy trees, night jasmin, and gardenia hedges line the walkway in to the front door. The property has dozens of types of hybiscus, palms trees, bourgainvilla, and rare plantings. A lush fern garden is planted just outside of the master bathroom, A large cabana set amidst the greenry, by the pool offers shelter form the sun.

Our Vice President has stayed for the last 3 years on our Beach. . The views of sail boats going to Buck Island, wind surfers occationally on our Bay, and the blue green water furnish breath taking views and entertainment. Pool side offers a Lynx grille for cooking out. Each bedroom has its own private access to the pool and the Sea. There is no more beautiful water front location on St Croix. The house is 4 miles east of the Buchaneer Hotel. There are numereous opportunities for hiking, swimming, snorkeling, and just relaxing. We are an easy drive to Point Udall, the eastern most point in the U S, where sun rise over the Ocean is an exceptional experience.. Beautiful beaches are easily reached in either direction and our Bay is always present for swimming or snorkeling. All water toys can be provided and used just off the front beach side lawn.
