OUR LITTLE BIT OF PARADISE - RELAXING AND AFFORDABLE VACATION CONDO - FULL AIR

St. Croix Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Welcome to Our Little Bit of Paradise

If you like the beach, you'll love our condo in the Colony Cove resort. This condo is a two bedroom, two bath unit on the 2nd floor and a quick walk to the beach or pool. From your morning coffee to your late night drink, the terrace provides you with a wonderful and relaxing place to sit and enjoy the natural beauty. The pool is literally a few feet away and is especially relaxing in the evening before you retire to your air conditioned unit.

Colony Cove is very close and convenient to many activities. From snorkeling, either in front of the condo or at Buck Island and dining locally or in Christiansted, your day won't be spent traveling all over. And if you like the casinos, the Divi Resort is only a short drive away. From exciting to relaxing, this condo has it all.

From morning to night, the condo provides for all of your needs. We have you covered with anything you would need. The morning starts with the Keurig coffee maker making your favorite blend and leads to the Ninja blender making some the most delightful tropical drinks you have tasted.

If you want to relax and watch some television, there is a larger unit in the living room and a smaller unit in the master bedroom. The stereo system also will attach to your smartphone using Bluetooth technology. No wires, no hassles.

St. Croix also has some wonderful areas to explore including some beautiful beaches throughout the island, botanical gardens and a rainforest. Take one of the tours and you'll discover parts of the island that you never envisioned.

LJ has worked for corporations in the United States for the past 30 years. He now has a consulting business and does work with large and small companies. In addition to this, he is also a Professor for a major online university in their graduate program. It's always been dream of his to own property on the sea where he can teach his classes while he admires the beautiful landscape.

Janie is currently a realtor in Middle Tennessee. Prior to working in real estate, she was a manager in a major grocery store chain. She also has a passion for island living.

This condo is part of our transition from the corporate world to our 'Life in the Left Lane'.

LJ and Janie purchased this condo in 2013

We came to St. Croix on vacation in July, 2013. After falling in love with the whole island, we decided to take a look at some condos. This led to the purchase of this condo a month later. We think that you will fall in love with St. Croix just like we did.

It's affordable for vacationing for couples, families, honeymooners, or singles that want to explore a US territory without the burden of needing a passport. It's our little bit of paradise.

Air conditioning throughout the condo! One of the first things that we discovered when looking at St. Croix condos is that air conditioning is normally limited to the bedrooms. While the sea does provide a gentle breeze during much of the year, for vacationers not used to the heat, air conditioning in the main area can make the experience much more comfortable.

Updated Interior - After purchasing the condo, we spent a couple of weeks redoing much of the inside. Now, the condo looks more tropical and fun. We think that you'll like the additions that we've added to the kitchen and feel 'at home' during your stay.

LITTLE BIT OF PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
This condo is very nice, well decorated and equipped. It is located in the Colony Cove resort. The people there were friendly and very helpful. The pool is very nice. Although the beach at the condo isn't the best you usually travel to beaches in the USVI, and there are some very nice beaches a short drive away. Particularly liked Cane Beach and Shoy's beach. The view from the balcony is great and a great place for breakfast & dinner. Definitely recommend this condo for a St. Croix vacation.

FANTASTIC TIME!

  • 5 of 5
Thanks for sharing your home with us. Our stay was amazing, the staff was very accommodating and professional, the condo was everything we needed and more, and the entire overall experience was bar none! Thanks for the 'welcome flowers and Rum' as that was a most unexpected gift. We would love to come back soon and stay here, but for a much longer time.

LOVE ST. CROIX

  • 4 of 5
The first night there was a mix up and we had to stay in another unit because the unit we had rented had been double booked. No big deal. Just don't like to have to move from one unit to another. The unit we rented was really nice. The view was incredible and the staff was very helpful.

Owner's Response: Stacy and Dave,

I'm glad that the trip ended up really good for both of you. I know that the management group at the condo felt terrible about missing the date that your trip started. I'm very sorry that this happened. We've put in some checks and balances to ensure that this won't happen again.

Thanks for staying at "Our Little Bit of Paradise"! I'm glad that you were my guest and that you enjoyed the condo and St. Croix.

ST. CROIX RELAXATION

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in this wonderful condo for 10 days in February. Since we are already owners at Colony Cove and our condo is rented on a long term basis, we chose this fantastic unit to rent since we had not visited St. Croix in over a year. Would recommend it to anyone who just wants to relax and enjoy the pool or beach, or to those who want to explore and seek adventure.

NICE CONDO ON EDGE OF CHRISTIANSTED

  • 4 of 5
Nice condo, clean, good security. Pool nice, with barbeque. Beach not great for swimming, too weedy.

Owner's Response: Hi Brenda,

We appreciate for the response. I checked with the condo resort and the natural weeds in the Caribbean are occasionally removed. Unfortunately, they do return because of their natural habitat. So glad that you liked the condo.

Thanks, LJ

NICE CONDO

  • 4 of 5
I loved walking in and having flowers on the counter to greet me. Condo was really nice, clean, good location. Beach was a disappointment, lots of debris. Had to get housekeeping to make second bed into a king. Internet never worked. Resort staff friendly and helpful.

St. Croix is stunning. From the island tours including stops at the Botanical Gardens to the tour of the Cruzan Rum Factory, St. Croix is a fantastic vacation spot. The beaches are wonderful, the wildlife is fantastic and the weather is as close to perfect as you can find.
