About the property

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.

About LJ and Janie

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

Why LJ and Janie chose St. Croix

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

A trip to paradise

  • 4 of 5

We came down for 5 days for short vacation and a wedding, and were very pleased. The people were all very pleasant and accommodating, the unit was as expected, and the grounds were very well maintained! There was also a nice bar/restaurant with music next door, right thru a gate. I would definitely recommend it.

Two happy weeks in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four persons in this nice condo, for two weeks, in December 2016.

We really enjoyed our time at St. Croix and the stay in this fantastic condo.

The condo is fully equipped and has a wonderful balcony/terrace with views over the ocean.

The pool area is very great and there are to very nice barbecues on the premises.

The condo complex "Colony Cove" is situated just outside Christiansted and has a good supermarket very Close by.

We can highly recommend this condo and we are looking forward to our next stay.

Sincerely, LJ (& Janie)

Nice condo for our family

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice condo for our family to use on our first trip to St. Croix. The location is close to shopping, restaurants, etc in Christiansted and pretty central to facilitate driving around the island with ease. There's only one small thing I wish the condo had--a cookie sheet in the kitchen. I cook probably more than most tourists do on vacation, and that's one item that was missing that I really could've used. A small inconvenience though, and everything else was more than adequate. Thanks for a great first trip to STX!

Clean, safe, picturesque

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was well supplied and comfortable. We were so glad there was air conditioning throughout the apartment. Colony Cove is in a great location on the beach; even though it's not the best beach it feels very private. LJ and Jane always responded to my questions by email in a timely way. Greatly reccommend! Be sure to visit Whim Greathouse if you want some history. Be sure to catch the drummers and singer there.

Great place to stay with good location to many wonderful beaches

  • 5 of 5

This was our families first trip to the island and enjoyed everything about the stay. The condo resides in a gated community that appears to be just outside a lower income area but we not once encountered any problems in our travels. Everyone around the island were very pleasant, the bar - grill next door was awesome!

We did encounter a problem with the AC in the master upon arrival... the fan motor wouldn't come on BUT the owners were contacted and promptly had the unit replaced. We will certainly check availability of this condo again for future trips and recommend them to anyone going.
