|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
We fell in love with this unit the first time we saw it. It is one of four units in our complex with direct access from the lanai to the beach and water. You will love to just walk out the gate from the lanai to walk along the beach, relax on lounge chairs under the palm trees or in the hammock, watch the pelicans dive for dinner or snorkel with the fish by the manmade reef in the bay. You will be just a few steps from the pool. Too lazy to cook after a day in the sun? Walk to Breezez about 100 yards down the beach. Two grocery stores are within walking distance. Drive just 7 minutes to Christiansted to enjoy duty-free shopping, art galleries, historical buildings, quaint shops, and several great restaurants. We are centrally located mid-island on the north shore. It is only a short drive to some of the most spectacular beaches in the world.
You will love this clean, new unit:
Our unit has been recently renovated with all new tile, paint, appliances, kitchen cabinets, bathrooms, blinds, linens and furniture. The master bedroom has a king size bed, two night stands, a dresser and a closet. The master bath has a vessel sink in the vanity area and the stool and shower in a separate area. The master suite is separated from the rest of the condo by a door. The guest bedroom has twin beds which can be easily converted to a king by the staff before you arrive. The guest room has a night stand, a chest of drawers and a closet. The full bath is directly across the hall. There is a washer and dryer in a closet in the hall. The kitchen has full size appliances; a refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, and microwave. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, dishes, pots, pans, etc. There are two stools for counter seating. The dining area has a glass top table and four chairs. The living room has a sofa, love seat, easy chair, end tables, a coffee table and a wall mounted flat screen TV. We have internet (wifi) and cable in the unit.
Rent a car to see the sights:
We recommend renting a car to take advantage of the great variety of recreational activities on St Croix. There are three golf courses. Carambola is stunning. You can go horsebackriding on the west end in the rain forest and on the beach. Visit the botanical gardens set in the picturesque ruins of an old sugar plantation. The TanTan Tour is an exciting jeep tour to the top of the mountains in the rain forest and then down to wade in a tide pool on the north end. Visit the historic towns of Christiansted and Fredericksted. Take a hike from Point Udall down to Jack's and Isaac's Bay or hike from Carambola to the tide pools. Visit the Whim Museum or the Lawaetz Family Museum to learn about life on St. Croix in days gone by. Don't miss the crab races at several local restaurants.
Enjoy the beaches and the water:
There are too many beautiful beaches on St. Croix to name. You will want to visit as many as you can. Many of these beaches have great snorkeling. For the scuba divers, there are shipwrecks to explore, as well as 'The Wall' at Cane Bay. Don't miss taking a charter boat to snorkel at Buck Island (an underwater national park). Help hoist the sails on a hundred year old sailing ship, the Roseway, as you head out on a sunset cruise. Try night kayaking in a glass kayak to see the magical bioluminescence underwater in the dark. You can rent jet skis or try kiteboarding or windsurfing. Charter a sail boat or do some deep sea fishing from a fishing boat.

My husband and I are retired. We bought this unit to spend time in a tropical climate to escape the cold in the north. It has been one of the best decisions we every made. We have fallen in love with St Croix, the people, the culture and especially the beautiful beaches. We love the fact that St. Croix is not crowded with tourists. We enjoy driving around on uncrowded roads to lovely quiet beaches. I have started watercolor painting since I retired. There seems to be a clairity and brightness to the colors on St. Croix. The sunsets and sunrises are stunning. Each spectacular beach is a painting waiting to happen. The spectacular views take my breath away. The tropical flowers are delightful. The plantation ruins and boarded up structures give you a glimpse into the history of the island. I find beauty at every turn and it inspires me to try to capture my impressions in my watercolors.
Judy Kimmel purchased this condo in 2008
We love the view from the condo out to the beach and the ocean. It is centrally located on the north shore just minutes from Christiansted, grocery shopping and wonderful beaches. We like the beach, the pool, the grill and the gardens at Colony Cove. We also appreciate the fact that St Croix is a US Territory so we feel very much at home and safe on St. Croix. Our friends don't need a passport to visit us.
Our unit has been totally renovated. It seems like new and it is very clean.You will enjoy the newly updated kitchen and bathrooms. We have wifi access and a local house phone. The new furniture and linens give it a tropical feeling. We enjoy sitting on the lanai in the evening and just watching the moon come up over the ocean. We like walking out our gate to walk on the beach or read on the lounge chairs in the sun. We enjoy visiting with friends at the pool and grilling our dinner while we chat. We also enjoy snorkeling along the manmade reef in our bay. We have seen all kinds of fish, rays, lobster, turtles and even an octopus. Our unit has the best location in the complex and it is one of the nicest units at Colony Cove. We go to St. Croix twice a year to make sure the unit is well maintained.
My and my husband rented this condo for a week. We have never been to St. Croix before but have done a lot of research. We are actually considering retiring there in about 11 years. The Condo was wonderful. I loved the fact we were on the first floor and could walk out of our patio onto the beach. We were 20 ft from the water. The condo had everything we could need. They even had a supply of pool toys and snorkeling gear. It was very clean and the Kitchen was well stocked with equipment if you wanted to cook. We had no problem with the tv or getting on-line on our lap-top we brought. Loved the area. We were minutes from Christensted. Food store was right around the corner. There were things to do everyday, we wished we could have stayed another week. Went to Buck Island for the day snorkeling. It was the best snorkeling I've ever done. The reefs were amazing. One Note: We had contacted a realtor before coming down to look at some condos that were for sale, just to get an idea. She wanted to meet us at the airport and guide us to our condo. The directions that Judy gave us were very clear and I brought my GPS. We didn't see the need for the realtor to go out of her way and come to the airport, but she insisted since we were arriving after dark. Boy am I sure glad she did. Between driving on the left and most streets DO NOT have signs,and it being dark, we would have gotten so lost. So keep this in mind if you are renting a car. Make sure you have a good map. After the first day, we were fine and by the end of the week, I knew the island like my home town!!! I totally recommend this condo and the owners are wonderful to work with.
My wife, 21 year old daughter, and myself couldn't have been more pleased with Judy, her condo, the condo complex, and Christiansted. The condo was clean, very comfortable, and has terrific views. The kitchen was the best equipped condo we've ever rented in the Caribbean. The swimming pool was very refreshing. We'll definitely return.
This is a very nice property right on the beach. Located on the bottom level makes you right there on the beach, a prime location for us. The unit is well taken care of, comfortable with a cheery interior, awesome views and well appointed kitchen. There were beach chairs available in the unit as well as other beach and swimming accoutrements helpful to make for a great stay.
We spent a week in this condo and loved very minute of it. The location could not be better as it is right on the beach. We loved sitting and enjoying the ocean view every day. The condo had everything we needed and then some. The owner Judy is so nice and helpful. Looking forward to our next trip there. St Croix is so beautiful , thank you Judy for a wonderful place to call home for our stay.
My husband and I had an amazing time in this condo - absolutely perfect for relaxing and easy to explore the wonderful island of St Croix from here - we had a great taxi service (Native Son Taxi & Tours) that took amazing care of us for 8 days as we did not want to rent a car. Christensted is a short, inexpensive ride away and there are a lot of great restaurants. A trip to Protestant Cay ($5 round trip ferry) is well worth it - great beach and fun bar/grill. Judy's condo is exactly as the pictures show - spotless and very welcoming! The lanai is just spectacular - watched great moon rises from the beach each night and had coffee out there every morning. Judy gives great recommendations for dining, beaches, and just about anything you could possibly want to know. I would DEFINITELY rent this condo again (hopefully soon!) and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking at St. Croix for their next vacation.
This was our first time using VRBO and from my beginning inquiry with the owner, Judy, we were sold on staying at one of her two condo's. She was very helpful about giving us ideas of where to eat and where to go. She was great! The condo is in the best location of the resort, it is the closest to the water. It is comfortable and had everything we needed for our week there. We felt like we were home. It was so comfortable, we did not want to leave! Location is near Christianistead, but since the island is small, it is easy to get around the entire location from there. She had snorkles, beach chairs, everything, She is a model host!!
Our condo is centrally located on the north shore. We drive about the same distance to beaches on the south, east and west ends. We have two grocery stores within walking distance. We are about 7 minutes drive to Christiansted where many of the good restaurants, galleries and shops are located. You can also sign up for snorkeling, diving, jeep and sightseeing tours in Christiansted.
We love to eat at good restaurants. Our favorite restaurants are:
Beachside Cafe for Sunday Brunch, lunch or dinner
Bombay Club (Christiansted)
Cafe Christine (Christiansted)
The Turtle Deli (Frederiksted)
The Palms Monday night buffet and Caribbean show
Cheeseburgers in Paradise (great burgers - east end)
Breezez is a nice restaurant right down the beach.
Blue Water Terrace (east end)
St Croix has beautiful beaches! Our favorite beaches are:

We really like our beach too. There is great snorkeling on our beach out from Smugglers to the man-made tire reef.

A 1/2 day trip to Buck Island to snorkel
The hike to the tide pools from Carambola
Horse back riding in the rain forest
