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 USVI/St. Croix

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.

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!

Perfection on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved St. Croix, Judith's Fancy and most of all...our cottage on the beach. To celebrate our 20th anniversary, we wanted to go somewhere we'd never been. After hours of research, we decided on St. Croix and chose Chad and Emily's sweet guest cottage. I knew I'd made the right decision after my first inquiry about the home. Chad within hours emailed and answered all of my questions. Over the months leading up to the trip, we emailed and he provided us with directions from the airport (you'll thank him later), restaurant recommendations, things to do, etc.

Upon arrival, both Emily and Chad met us. Both were super sweet and warm. They showed us around the cottage and surprised us with a bottle of wine and a gorgeous cake with xoxo written on it in chocolate.

Seriously, if you're thinking of visiting St. Croix, stay at this property. It is ON THE BEACH and the neighborhood is located on the northern part of the island, just west of Christiansted. In the evenings, we'd sit on the beach and listen to the waves. It was wonderful. Our days were full of getting lost, swimming, snorkeling and spending time together. St. Croix is wonderful. I highly recommend staying at the cottage, especially if it is your first time on the island.

Thank so much for everything! Loved our stay! #STXcottage

EXCEEDS EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5

I am the type of person that doesn't write reviews on anything (products/experiences/etc) - but I am writing a review of our Honeymoon Stay at THIS cottage because it deems worthy of it!!! ALL of the excellent reviews of this cottage are CORRECT!! And they are not exaggerating! This beach cottage will EXCEED your expectations!! It is cozy! It is beautiful! It is homey! It is everything you could have ever wanted! And the private beach just steps away from the stunning porch is breathtaking!! We LOVED every moment we spent at this property during our honeymoon and would HIGHLY recommend booking your stay there!! Chad and Emily are just the SWEETEST of hosts!! They have thought of EVERYTHING to make your stay perfect! Being able to wash our clothes/towels during our stay was a real life-saver - we arrived home with NO dirty laundry! All of the suggestions in previous reviews are spot on - PACK WATER SHOES!!! Having those saved our trip! The beach is very rocky (has coral reef right there) with sea urchins dotting the whole stretch. But don't be discouraged by that!! It's still stunning! So neat to explore AND you can still swim there! The gated community really provides a sense of security and safety for you. The view from the porch is stunning and you can hear the ocean while you sleep at night! Staying here was the BEST choice for us!! Private/secluded/gorgeous/and on and on and on!! Thank you Chad and Emily for making our honeymoon better than we could have hoped for!!

Great Home Base for our Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here in Judith's Fancy. It was a perfect home base for exploration around ST. Croix. Cottage was neat, clean, and footsteps away from the beach! Definitely check out beaches at Cane Bay, Isaac's​ Bay, and Sandy Point on weekends.
