LJ and Janie purchased this Condo in 2013
Why LJ and Janie chose Estate Golden Rock
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.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
The facility was comfortable, just needed more TLC. Housing keeping should dust and master room ac had some mold. The unit was very close to the beach and pool. Use of the patio was awesome to enjoy the breeze of the Caribbean.
Great Vacation and at This Condo
We arrived and walked up to the desk. They knew who I was, handed me my keys, and offered different restaurants for supper. Apartment had a few minor cosmetic issues but owner notified and she replied right away to advise she would have them fixed. Great view of oven from condo, nice walk on the beach. 10 min away from historical Christiansted and 15 min. From Christenstead Boardwalk. Water on this side had a lot of seaweed but kids swam in pool for condos right next to the beach. Short drive to rainbow beach where you can snorkel in 3 foot waters where there is coral and amazing fish. Snorkel equipment is in closet at condo. A good swimming beach is to go eat at the Little Mermaid Restaurant for lunch and use the private beach after eating. Just tell the guard your eating at the Little Mermaid.
Internet at condo did not work the whole time we were there. We tried to reset the router but still no luck. We notified management on check out and they advised they would look into it. There is two government housing sections outside of here. Don’t let the looks fool you, you will have no issues. We walked at night and everyone sticks to themselves. Plus locals are friendly, unless you catch them while they are working. I would stay here again, great place and close to everything!
Excellent budget choice
We spent 3 days at this property and it was a great launching point for exploring the island. Central location, near grocery stores and restaurants. We met several property owners at the pool who gave us great tips on where to eat and play! A few things were lacking: check in was weird - a man who didn’t speak English just handed us a key and we had to wander around to find the unit (even though we checked in right at 4pm). There were no directions as to how to get to the pool & beach, but we wandered til we found it! This place might not be great for younger kids (like 3 & under). There were lots of extension cords running everywhere and plugs in the middle of the wall with nothing covering them. All in all, we had an enjoyable stay and would stay here again! The 4 stars is because we struggled to figure out where anything was on site.
After a little check in problem everything went very smoothly .
We enjoyed the stay at LJs condo. The air. conditioning was superb and the atmosphere in this condo was great. A few little problems that se had were taken care of auickly by L.J. The grounds were qell taken care of and the pool was great. My wife had a problem with the beach area because of her conditions. Most people wouldn't have a problem but zhe needed zomeone to give her a hand while in the water. Not ery crowded this time of the year but the people on the property and in town were very polite and talkative. We definitely enjoyed our stay and enjoyed the coffee pod maker provided by LJ. we did bring our own pods but found them in one of the local Supermarkets. we definitely would recommend this place to anyone visiting St Croix. Hopefully we will be able to return ourselves in the future. Very hospitable.
Love the location of this property, we have stayed in this condo in the past. Perfect for our needs. However, on our arrival the condo was dusty, the most surprising thing to find was that the patio furniture was in disrepair. The cushions were tattered. The kitchen had minimal mismatched supplies. Appreciated the air conditioning for our comfort.
Thanks for letting us know. I've sent your response to the management company that handles the condo for me. We certainly want your experience to be great and will take the steps to correct anything that is needed.
Relaxing and great place to stay!
This condo was so quiet and relaxing. A great place to come back to after a long day in the sun. The view from the patio was perfect and beautiful. I can’t wait to come back again!
Thanks for the great review. We are so glad that your trip was great. You are always welcome to stay st our place.
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.
