“The house was gorgeous and the view of the ocean was stunning.”

We learned of this house from some friends, and we were not disappointed. The place is very well appointed and we enjoyed sitting on the porch every night,sipping cocktails as the sun set behind us bathing Buck Island in a warm glow. Everything in the house was clean and comfortable, making our stay there very relaxed and enjoyable. While we stayed in the lovely master bedroom, our housemates thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor (yet discreet) shower connected to theirs - especially with the view of the ocean in the morning. We took full advantage of the availability of fresh fish caught every day and sold at a beach landing just down the street and we grilled dinner on the BBQ every night that we didn't eat in town. We would have loved to kayak down there to get the fish, but none were provided - perhaps the only improvement to the property that we could suggest.

Cotton House is a dream, beautifully appointed with every convenience one might want. It has a small calm beach and there is a larger white sand beach ten minutes away. We had one of our best vacations ever, swimming snorkeling and boating. We have friend on St. Croix and entertained them several times in this beautiful house, having drinks by the water and dinner on the large covered porch overlooking Buck Island. It was just magical--and we shall be return guests. (what we liked least was going home.) Joan and Matt

An exceptional beach front property with incredible water views and the most wonderful and sweet smelling gardens. The house is perfectly appointed and comfortable. We loved the privacy and the deep water pool for our laps when we were not swimming in the Caribbean. We were met by the property's staff who can provide any service or vacation experience imaginable. We will defintely return.

My husband and I stayed at the Cotton House for a week and were totally impressed by everything about the property. It sits on a beautifully maintained and landscaped lot with breathtaking views. The house is magnificient, with perfectly appointed furnishing and every possible convenience. This house is not like a rental property but stocked and cared for as a private home. It is in perfect condition, immaculately clean, and no one could ever be disappointed when they walk in the door.

This is a beautifully maintained house in a perfect location on St. Croix. The bedrooms are idyllic, the common areas lovely and exceptionally comfortable, and the outdoor areas, including the spacious and beautiful gallery, and the first rate swimming pool overlooking the ocean are sans pareil. Best of all, the landscaping is really gorgeous, and anyone who loves the tropics for its lushness, will not be disappointed. The location is terrific, isolated enough to feel ever so relaxing, yet near many good restaurants, and convenient to Christiansted. And if you don't want to dine out, the kitchen is very well equipped and the dining areas inside and out are perfect for anything from a casual meal to gourmet dining.
We have enjoyed Cotton House several times and will be back!
“The quintessential island vacation appropriate for all ages.”

Cotton House is one of the most exquisite rental properties that we have ever seen. The detailed planning of all aspects of the house added greatly to our enjoyment. The amenities go far beyond the normal offerings and expectations. We hopefully will be coming back again and again.
