Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (sleeps 4)
We've traveled the world, but when we want to recharge our batteries, St. Croix is the most lay-back sunny retreat you could ever want. That's why we chose it 33 years ago and bought out lovely home away from home 31 years ago.
Owner purchased this Condo in 1987
Why Owner chose Estate Golden Rock
Thirty-three years ago, my wife and I wanted to get away for 'just a week' but we didn't want to chance a cold spell in Florida. And we didn't want to leave the safety of the USA. So we traveled to the USVI, St. Croix. Knowing nothing about our destination except it was in the United States Virgin Islands, we discovered a lifestyle change that has lasted and will continue to last for our entire life. We have a saying in St. Croix, when on island you are on St. Croix time: that's 180 seconds per minute. Nobody and nothing is done in a hurry. You will love it.
What makes this Condo unique
Why did we chose St. Croix for our home away from home after vacationing there two years in a row? The one overriding reason was the people. The friendliness of the people and the great weather, coupled with the pace of life on the island, slow and slower, make it the ideal get away spot. You MUST say hello or good morning/afternoon/evening to all the locals and everyone with whom you come in contact or pass on the street. It is considered very rude not to do this. When you do, you will be rewarded with a wide smile and friendly return of the greeting in almost every case. The local Crucian people are wonderful. I can't tell you how gracious and helpful they will be to you. When you drive on island, you will be amazed that everyone stops to let everyone else out of shopping malls, and side streets. Then you get a 'honk' to acknowledge your kindness. So don't forget to 'honk' when someone lets you into traffic or to turn in front of them. After over 31 years, it still amazes me. Because the restaurants are all very casual and our having a full size washer and dryer in the unit, you can often pack a carry-on with bathing suit and a few things for a weeklong stay or longer. We had a family of four adults (mom, dad, and two grown daughters) that did exactly that. Getting into and out of airports easily with no baggage fees or lost luggage is a pleasure.

comfortable and quiet
We stayed a week with our child. The apartment is as it looks in the pictures. My child enjoyed the pool. It is quiet, comfortable and we felt safe. I am happy and satisfied to have chosen this apartment and we would definitely recommend it.
Everything was clean and in great working order.
I had a good experience and look forward to staying here again. Lynda was good with communicating with me which made me very comfortable. Thanks again for everything!!
Relaxation by ocean side!
We had a very lovely stay at Colony Cove. Everything was as it was described. A fully stocked kitchen all ready for you to use to make meals with. Very clean bathrooms and comfortable beds. We enjoyed the balcony so much in the evenings while listening to the ocean. We also felt very safe and protected with the gate at the entrance which needed a code to open and there was always someone keeping watch of the parking lot or walking the grounds. We loved the location because of the short drive to the local market and as well as getting to the restaurants in Christiansted. This was a perfect get away over the Memorial weekend. We would definitely stay again. Thank you so much!
Clean and Relaxing Condo
Great experience on St. Croix. No problem recommending or staying here again.
All the comforts of home in this beautiful 2 bedroom 2 bath condo steps from the water of the Caribbean and step from the pool which we took advantage of both.
A short drive to Christiansted for shopping and restaurants, perfect location!!
The staff on premisis was very helpful and friendly.
We will definitely be back
So glad you enjoyed... hope to see you again!
This is the spot I needed to be at for my business trip. The 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo was grand. Easy check in, easy check out and 24 hour security.
When returning, this is my new place in St Croix.
John, if you need to return, I would be happy to give you a discount.
Glad you enjoyed.
You rise almost every morning to a fabulous sunrise coming over the island from the east. You can drive (on the left) all over the island to enjoy magnificent beaches; snorkeling and scuba; night scuba diving at the pier in Fredericksted; sailing to and snorkeling at the only underwater national park in the US parks system, Buck Island; you can go on eco-hikes to natural mineral hot baths; at the right time of year, you can arrange to see the sea turtles nest at Sandy Point; you can fish and grille the catch at the pool; eat out at a plethora of great restaurants; play golf at the Robert Trent Jones, Sr. golf course or the Buccaneer with it's fabulous views; you can drive to Point Udall and stand on the furthest Eastern point of the United States of America; you can drive into the rain forest and visit the beer-drinking pigs; you can go into downtown Christiansted and shop at the duty free shops and the wonderful art galleries full of art from local and famous artists; you can take the Sea Plane from downtown Christiansted to Charlotte Amalie Harbor on St. Thomas and spend the day there, shopping and eating; or just plop-down by the pool or beach and soak in the warm Caribbean sun.
You get the best of all worlds at our condo. While being an Ocean Front Property with all the amenities of your home at your fingertips in a gated community, you are on an island in the Caribbean with all the fun and sun things to do; being in the United States, the USVI has all the 'comforts' of home, but you only need a US driver’s license or other valid i.d. not a passport to travel here. You can literally walk a few blocks to the main road to find grocery stores the same as a Giant or Kroger; McDonalds; Subway; KFC: Fitness Centers; etc.
As you will see from reading our VRBO reviews, we go to great lengths to make your stay at our condo an enjoyable one. Thank you for considering our 'home away from home' for your vacation destination. We hope to hear from you.
