St. Croix Condo Rental Photos and Description
2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths - great for 2 couples
All the resort amenities without the resort prices! Our top floor (3rd floor) unit provides fabulous views of Buck Island and the city of Christiansted. Kitchen & living room patio doors face east letting the trade wind breezes flow through our unit. An 8' x 26' covered, private balcony extends your outdoor relaxing. Smuggler's Cove restaurant is within 150 ft. from our door. Great food and music - voted St. Croix' best pizza in 2009. Breezes restaurant is within walking distance down the beach - best happy hour on island. Snorkeling in a protected reef bay & swimming pool are available. St. Croix is a relaxing, slower paced island. St. Thomas and St. John both have cruise ships & can be visited either by ferry or seaplane. There is desert-like terrain, rain forest & the Wall at Cane Bay which has some of the best snorkeling & shore diving in the world. Entire unit has fresh paint and new mattresses.Twin beds can be converted to a king upon request.Great for two couples.
Why we chose Colony Cove: Our first visit to St. Croix was in 1999. We bought a one week time share that same year at Chenay Bay. We have returned to the island year after year. After selling a ski-in, ski-out condo in Copper Mountain, CO we traded the mountains and snow for sun and surf! We are very happy with our unit at Colony Cove. Great central location on the island - about 20 minutes to any of the shores (east, west, north or south) and 5 minutes to downtown Christiansted.
Recommend car rental: No private beaches on St. Croix - there are many, many great places to visit, snorkle, and relax all over the island. Chenay Bay, Divi Resort and Casino, The Carambola and Sunset Grille on the west end to name a few. And the restaurants! So many and so good! Wonderful staff at all of them. But of course, resting and relaxing right at Colony Cove is a wonderful option too - you can snorkle, swim or use the pool and not have to drive anywhere.
Our Sundays: Wave's at Cane Bay for brunch 10 am (reservations recommended). A drive through the rain forest to Sunset Grille which also has a brunch and great pina colada's. Music there until 2pm. A quick jaunt to Rhythms at Rainbow Beach. Stateside bands start at 3pm 'til 6pm. Another quick jaunt to Coconuts for local blues musicians and open mike til ?? Next stop is Lost Dog in Fredricksted for great pizza.

Guestbook comments from the owner
An absolutely beautiful 3rd floor unit! Nicely updated and clean with all the comforts of home! We have stayed at Colony Cove before and love its location...close to shopping, beaches and Christiansted. This was our 3rd visit to St. Croix and this time wanted to bring my parents. We stayed the end of July in 09. There was plenty of room for 4 of us! Coffee in the morning was a delight while enjoying gentle breezes and gorgeous views of the sea, mountains and of course Buck Island. The staff at the condo are helpful and friendly. There are two restaurants on either side of the condo to enjoy a bit to eat or for having a cocktail. I would say to really enjoy all that St. Croix has to offer, you must rent a car! Without a car you may miss...The Rum Factory, Sailing to Buck Island with Big Beard, seeing the beer drinking pigs at Dominos in the rain forest, enjoying other beaches with great snorkeling, the casino, crab races and more!!! The condo rental process was smooth and easy, thanks to the owners... Mark and Debb! We are already getting set to book our second stay with them and can't wait. We love St. Croix, Colony Cove and now, Mark and Debb for allowing us to rent there adorable home! Thank you, thank you!!
