Longford Hideaway Cottage: 1BR, pool, organic farm

Longford Hideaway is a very private eco-lodging: 1 bedroom 500 sq. ft. rural cottage, with swimming pool and deck, full kitchen with open plan living and dining areas, set on the ARTfarm: a working organic Caribbean fruit, vegetable and sheep farm. (Because of the farming operations, there is a strict no-smoking and no pets policy - children are welcome!)

The friendly owners live on this historic Danish-built property – the modern pool was originally the plantation cistern! With over 40 years of living on the island, we are always ready to offer assistance and suggestions. Our location on the south shore of St. Croix makes a great base for ...Read more

Additional Location Information

Our Longford Hideaway property is tucked away on the rural and undeveloped south shore of St. Croix, USVI, but very easy to get to. We're on the South Shore Road (Rt.62), directly south of the major town of Christiansted. Route 62 runs east to west along the south side of the island on its east end, and we're on the on the sea side of the road. Our driveway is also the parking area for the ARTfarm organic vegetable stand. The rental cottage is tucked behind our fruit orchard and spacious yard, beyond the farmstand buildings. You'll have shady parking under some native flowering trees, about 200 feet from the main road. You won't need four wheel drive to get to us (although adventurous drivers may wish to rent a jeep for exploring more undeveloped roads on the island). Driving from Longford, you're about 2 minutes from gorgeous Ha'Penny Beach, 7 minutes from the grocery store, 9 minutes from the movie theater/bank/shopping center, 10 minutes from downtown Christiansted, and about 25 minutes from Frederiksted on the west end of the island, or in the other direction Point Udall on the easternmost tip of St. Croix!

Because you're staying right at the ARTfarm, you're surrounded by vegetable gardens and fruit trees. You can walk about 30 seconds to the farmstand and purchase organically grown salad greens, tomatoes, fruit, herbs, veggies and other treats in season. Background sounds include breezes in the treetops, birds singing, the sounds of the farm (distant chickens, turkeys and sheep, farm equipment), waves breaking on the reef to the south, and your own breathing, as you relax deeply and soak in the clean, pure sea air.

Longford is at the base of a series of rolling green hills. From up the pool deck, you will enjoy a glimpse of the sea view.
