St. Croix Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Enjoy the sunrise in this well equipped sandy beach front two bedroom and two bath Colony Cove condominium. The condo is on the 2nd floor so you will have privacy from beach goers. A little morning sun on the gallery but nicely shaded and breeze cooled the rest of the day. Feel like you are right over the sea from the gallery. Pool is steps away and convenient when a snack/drink/or toilet is needed. Snorkel in a reef protected bay. Views of Buck Island and boats going by in the distance. A short drive one mile to Christiansted with a grocery store down the road. Walk the beach and swim in the pool. Very peaceful and beautiful!

There are excellent restaurants and authentic shopping and night life a short walk from the condominium. Also, enjoy superb snorkeling and scuba diving in front of the condominium and also at a handful of beaches all over the island. We suggests guests visit the web site www.gotostcroix.com for a wealth of information about the island.

A rental car is nice to have to see the rest of the island but is not necessary as there are plenty of taxis. Christiansted is located on the North East end of St. Croix and has easy access to other islands including Buck Island and St. Thomas.

Both of us were born and raised in upstate New York. We have lived in many places across the Northeast. I'm a retired USDA government employee. Ernie is a retired businessman and Air Force flying officer. He has traveled extensively around the world and visited all seven continents. Our love of antique cars has taken us many places as well. We love having outdoor time and being able to exercise as well as keeping busy withprojects on our home. Now that we are both retired, we decided to 'go for it' and fulfill our dream of owning a place in the Virgin Islands. This condo unit is exactly what we had hoped for. We love St. Croix and the lifestyle it offers.

Ernie and Nancy Meyer purchased this condo in 2013

When we married, Ernie wanted to show me one of his favorite places he had visited during his flying career, the island of St. Croix! We had such a wonderful stay and have continued to return for the last 10 years. We discovered Colony Cove, in the Christainsted area, and fell in love with the complex. It has everything one might want for a wonderful tropical stay. There is a georgous tropical garden, beautifully maintained pool, and of course the beach. You can walk less than a mile to local grocery stores, drug store and restaurants. If you choose, you can walk, drive or take a taxi to the city of Christiansted. The stores and restaurants/pubs there are fun to check out. Christiansted has various cultural activities going on anytime during the year, such as 'Jump-Up' festival. For the sports enthusiasts there are multiple sporting activities to take part in. The beach is directly in front of the condo where beach chairs are provided for leisurely soakin up the island days. By way of several chartered excursion boats, you can go to 'Buck Island', an underwater National Park, where outstanding snorkeling and scuba are known the world over.

The unit is in the only beachfront building in the Colony Cove complex. Sunshine, sea breezes, comfortable modern furnishings and a gorgeous gallery overlooking the ocean are but just a few of the perks with this condo. You have security knowing you are in a gated complex. Colony Cove is very private and all of the employees there are very courteous and friendly.

RELAXING GETAWAY

  • 4 of 5
great place to stay ,great snorkling just out front on the tire reef,not crowed when we were there and love having laundry there especially with kids. The condo has towels and linnens,kitchen has cooking vessels,utensils all you need. The grill by the pool is kept clean by staff. The pool and garden area are clean and a great spot to relax after a day of sightseeing. There is much history here as well as activities of all kinds. For restaurants we liked Tavern,Angry Nates,LaRaine chicken shack(very affordable).good pizza from You are here. The best cosmos from Comanche in Hotel St.Croix.

HAPPY TRAVELERS

  • 5 of 5
This was our most relaxing vacations we've taken. Our favorite was having our morning coffee on the gallery sometimes didn't get going untill 11:00. Took a swim evey day and sometimes went snorkeling. When we go again we will take Big Beards all day sailing trip that takes you to Buck island to snorkel on the coral reef it was beautifull. The warm temps were a welcome treat, Thank you Ernie & Nancy

STRESS RELIEF IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
St. Croix is a delightful, beautiful, friendly place and the condo at Colony Cove was perfect for us. You do need a car and our AT&T Maps took us right to the condo without any problem. It is also on the local maps. The owners made everything so easy for us and getting there and access was a breeze! The view off the balcony was gorgeous and was the perfect place to begin and end each day. Everything we needed was there and your neighbors are the best! So great to be able to hit the beach right outside the door early in the morning. Snorkeling in the area was okay, but we didn't get all the way out to the reef where I am sure it is better. The location was great and accessible to all areas of the island. The St. Patricks Day Parade was so much fun and we truly were benefactors of the wonderful hospitality of the island everywhere we went. Every place we ate was great. Loved hanging out at EAT, scuba diving arrangements at Cane Bay Dive Shop on North Shore were professional and very well organized - ask for Kris! The Blue Water Terrace was OUTSTANDING, where we celebrated birthdays and closed down the place, and last but not least the food and service at WAVES was excellent topped off by a taste of the owners private "fortyfour". We were here eight days and wished it was longer. We will definitely come back to the island and would stay here again anytime!

DEBORAH

We really enjoyed the condo. The sunrise in the morning was beautiful! It was nice that you could walk to food town, we did walk into town one afternoon but elected to take a cab after that. It costs about $8.00 and they will stop at pueblo market on the way back for no extra charge if your only going in for about 5 minutes to grab something. Breezes, down the beach has great crab stuffed mushrooms. Had them twice. Had a lobster roll sandwich at Rum Runners and it was also very good. We ate on the boardwalk at Angry Nates our last evening under the full moon. Had a seafood dish over noodles with maui and assorted other seafood, it again was very good. I can't say enough on how comfortable we were in the condo. The gallery overlooking the sea was nice to enjoy the evening or day. The pool area was very clean and not too cold for Feb. People around the pool were so friendly, we enjoyed a lot of conversation there. When we come to St Croix again we would want to stay here for its great location! The king bed was very comfortable! The condo was very clean and well appointed. If you take a cab Big John is really nice and gives you a lot of info about St Croix. In Feb the breezes are so nice you don't miss have air conditioning....it was perfectly comfortable. Thanks Ernie and Nancy for having such a nice condo! Also, we enjoyed the hermit crab races, they were fun and our crab won!

GREAT VACATION

  • 4 of 5
Had a great time. Condo was clean and nice. Condo is in good location. About in the middle of the island so you can go any direction. Neighbor's that live there were great with information. Pool was good also. Beach was ok but not where we spent most of our time. Play golf at Buccaneer and loved it. Short course but very challenging . Play at carambola didn't like it never as much. Their attitude needs improving for 125$ Food on island was ok but not the greatest. Could have been our selections just don't know. Always read reviews about restaurant's. Our best meal were on the beach at little shacks. Ernie and Nancy were great to work with. I live in cold place so 80 + weather was great. The only negative I have is in the picture on the balcony there is no bars. There are now for what ever reason. All in all had great time

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you had a great time in St Croix. We can understand your surprise at finding the hurricane protective grates on the gallery. We had them installed shortly after we purchased our condo. We feel they are for everyones benefit and security, ours and our guests. You will find the majority of the owners agree with this. We will get the photos on the site updated as soon as we can. Thank you for your comments and pointing this out to us

Owner's Response: We are so very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our condo in St. Croix. We try to make it easy to slip into island mode. There are so many things to do but the gallery, first thing in the morning and then at night, is one of our favorite things. Hope you have many wonderful memories. Do come again.
