This hospitable and meticulously managed family-run resort is the kind of relaxing, laidback place where everyone is either digging their feet in the sand or curling up in some nook with a good book. Just outside Frederiksted (within walking distance), its set on a palm-fringed beach and consists of 21 nicely furnished cottages in tropical hues, each with its own private beachfront patio (and patio table) and fully equipped kitchen. Some are cinderblock, some wood, but all are well-maintained. It’s an excellent value for St. Croix, especially for families—up to two children 17 and under stay for free in their parent’s cottage—and the pretty beachfront locale gives it some real oomph.
