Overview

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. 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 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 living room furniture in 2015. Twin beds or convert to king upon request in the guest bedroom.

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. For more information on St. Croix you can visit www.gotostcroix.com and www.visitstcroix.com. 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. There are two grocery stores within walking distance.

Sunday Fundays: Head west to Rhythms at Rainbow Beach, music starts 3pm, Sandy Point, or the Fredricksted pier. Heading east you can visit Deep End beach/bar, second Sunday of the month has entertainment. A little further east is Shoreline at Chenay Bay recently opened and under new management by previous Brew Pub staff. Whatever you decide to do on Sunday, you will definitely have a great time.

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!!

Colony Cove Resort

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this unit with another couple Nov 28-Dec 5, 2009. The owners even had the twin beds in the second bedroom converted to a king before our stay at our request. The view from the balcony was beautiful.

The condo had plenty of room and was well equipped. Plenty of towels, appliances, dishes, SHARP knives, and a very nice supply of the basics like dishwasher detergent, paper towels, toilet tissue, tissues, laundry detergent, coffee filters, etc. The little "extras" like both a large and small cooler for picnic lunches, plastic glasses that could be taken to the pool area, made this really feel like home.

Many of the units are being refurbished on the outside and I believe the resort's overall appearance will be very nice when completed. While this is not a 5 star resort, we did not pay for that! It was nice and the security was good.

The owners were extremely nice to deal with and we had several contacts both by phone and email with them prior to our stay. They called us the morning after our arrival to see if everything was satisfactory. They will give you many tips regarding what to see and where to eat!

We had been to St Croix 10 years ago and found it much the same. It is a quiet island without alot of nightlife. The beaches are not crowded. The people are friendly and we enjoyed driving around the island. Rent a car to see everyting and enjoy all the beaches and the little restuaurants with island music such as Rythms, at Rainbow Beach. The Pirate Buffet and Mocko Jumbee dancers are a must do at Carambola Beach Resort on Friday nights. Take a sail on the tall ship Roseway if you are there in the winter and of course go snorkeling at Buck Island.

I would recommend staying in this unit! The price and location are great and the owners were delightful! They will do everything possible to ensure you are satisfied!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed here for 10 days. Great location. Quiet. Right on the beach. Really close to several activities. We had a car so we drove around the island several times. I don't have one complaint about this place. If I go back to st croix, I'd definitely stay here again!!

Great vacation!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and another couple spent a week at Colony Cove. It was a perfect location for our vacation. We enjoyed the privacy of the condo and all the people were very friendly and extremely helpful. The owners of the condo were very helpful and answered all of our questions. Although we had a plumbing problem on the day of our arrival, Kevin handled it immediately. We enjoyed the sites of St Croix and usually had the pool to ourselves. We would definitely recommend this condo to our friends.

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for my wife and I. The location was great - close to Christiasted, short drive to either Pueblo or Food Town ( I actually walked to both), and an easy drive to Fredricksted, as well. Loved to sit on the expansive porch, enjoying the breeze while looking over the pool and the view of Christiansted harbour and beyond. Of course, the weather couldn't have been better. Because of the location, we were able to get to all points of the island with ease. It all made for a great time for us. We're hoping to be able to return sometime in the not too distant future.

An ideal choice

  • 5 of 5

After perusing offerings all over St. Croix, I chose Colony Cove for several reasons and was not disappointed. Other reviews say it all: location (right next to the beach with great view from the balcony), nice pool (big enough for my daily laps), landscaping, condo amenities, reasonable price. A grocery store is nearby, and Christiansted is a few minutes away by car. Centrally located, beaches and other sights (Whim Plantation, Botanic Garden) aren't too far away. I would return here in a heartbeat.
