Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

This newly renovated two bedroom/two bathroom condo is a tropical gem. Not only does the condo have a beachfront view, it has direct beach and sea access from the secure balcony. Imagine stepping onto the beach and into the Caribbean from your living room, or master bedroom balcony! Not all units in Colony Cove have views from the master bedroom.

Enjoy your morning coffee while watching the spectacular sunrise from your gallery or lounge chairs nestled among the sand and palm trees steps from your balcony.

Unit 101D at Colony Cove has all the amenities of home with in-suite laundry, brand new kitchen cabinets, three TV's, DVD player, new mattresses, hotel quality bed linens and towels, newly tiled and decorated bathrooms, tropical decor throughout, and a breath taking view that will keep you coming back to this vacation rental.

Outside, enjoy sunny afternoons by the in ground pool, or use our snorkeling equipment and explore the underwater sea life in front of the condo. You can play and discover the area's three golf courses, ATV rides, downtown art walk, feed the island's famous beer drinking pig, or purchase a lasting memory of your unique Caribbean vacation by visiting the local artisans who create their one of a kind sterling or gold bracelets, necklaces, and rings.

About Susan VandeVelde

We are a retired couple from western New York that enjoys golfing, hiking, snorkeling, and reading.

Susan VandeVelde purchased this condo in 2003

Why Susan VandeVelde chose St. Croix

We chose St. Croix because of the easy pace, breathtaking views, and quiet beaches.

What makes this condo unique

You can step off the gallery directly onto the beach. There is excellent snorkeling directly off the beach.

We came to St. Croix for a wedding and might not have ever visited the island otherwise. I also used VRBO to book the unit, which was also my first time using. The property looks exactly like the pictures. Our stay there was very quiet and peaceful - we loved that we could relax and enjoy the water and the sun right outside the condo. The condo is well cared for, no bugs and very clean. We stayed in and cooked for most of our trip and the only suggestion I have is a fan in the kitchen area to circulate while cooking. It was very humid for our trip, came right as hurricane Matthew just passed through the Bahamas, but the ocean breeze was lovely and we kept the back door and front door open until we went to bed. The condo is a great location and very secure. We spent many nights outside and the security attendant makes regular walks. The condos are also in a gated community with code only access. You definitely can't go wrong with staying at Colony Cove and if I ever come back I will book this condo again. The owners are very nice and made sure our stay was comfortable.

Beautiful condo, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to St. Croix and loved this condo! The condo is located in a convenient area on the island. Very quick and easy drive to Christiansted. But also easy to travel to both ends of the island, from Point Udall to Fredericksted! The condo had everything we needed, including snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach towels, and even little extras (such as band-aids and sunburn relief spray and lots of hangers in the closets!). The bedrooms have AC units, which we used only at night to sleep comfortably. The unit gets an incredible breeze throughout the day that cools the condo down. We used the washer and dryer everyday. The unit was clean and very comfortable. The property has a gate with 24-hr security on site. The pool was enjoyable, clean, and just steps away from this unit. The beach is relaxing out front, we snorkeled the tire reef and enjoyed the incredible fish, and the evening views of Christiansted are just as pleasant.

The owners were very quick to respond to any questions as we were booking to stay. They also helped guide us with some ideas for things to do on the island. They were very easy to work with!

For those considering a trip, a few must To-Do items: Go to Buck Island (we used Caribbean Sea Adventures Sailing trip and had a great experience), Kayak the Bioluminescent Bay (Bush Tribe Eco Adventures did a great job), feed the beer-drinking pigs in the rain forest, visit Rainbow Beach, Hike to the Tide Pools of Analy (if the hike is too strenuous for some people in your group, consider a ride by Jeep, we saw Tan-Tan Tours out there), eat at 40-Strand, Breakfast at Toast, find La Reine Chicken Shack for a favorite local eats, and shop in Christiansted (Sonya's for Cruzan Hook bracelet)!

We would stay in this condo again! Great location, great price, great owners! Thank you for sharing your home on the island!

Beautiful condo in fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to St Croix and the Caribbean and we were not disappointed! The condo is beautiful and has everything you need. And the view - never tired of it! Sparkling blue water and hillside dotted with twinkling lights. This condo was very convenient for us, being on one floor and on the beach, as my husband has Parkinson's Disease and mobility issues.

There is so much to see and do on the island: we took a sunset cruise (complete with rain and a rainbow) and the bioluminescent tour with Virgin Kayaks was simply amazing! My son and his fiance enjoyed snorkeling in Cane Bay although the area in front of the condo was equally enjoyable. They saw sea urchins, many colorful fish, even an octopus! Driving up to Point Udall showed us a different side of the island - hauntingly beautiful. Each beach had its own beauty and charm. We were surprised by a British girl selling homemade baked goods on a drive through the rain forest - you just never know what you will find around the bend! Strolling down the boardwalk and meeting the artisans in Christiansted makes for a pleasant afternoon.

The owners are wonderful to deal with and Kevin, the manager, is terrific. All in all, we found only one difficult thing - having to leave (stay longer than a week if you can)! But be prepared - St Croix will creep into your heart and soul! The condo and the amazing location - truly a tropical paradise!

Carl and Susan's condo is the PERFECT St. Croix location! You walk out onto the patio and you're on the beach! Only a 10 minute taxi ride (4$) to Christensted! The condo has everything you could need regarding kitchen items, tv channels, movies and games if the weather is bad! The spacious condo makes it nice not to be on top of one another. Colony cove is also extremely safe with 24/7 security and all gated entrances! 2 restaurants within a 5 min walk of the condo! Couldn't have picked a better condo!!!

Excellent condo on St. Croix!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was top-notch! Our favorite part was the fact that the building in which the condo was located sits forward in front of the other condos located beside it. From the gallery, the only view you will see in front of you is the clear blue water. I'm not sure if it is because we visited during the off season, but there were not many people around during the first part of the week, and it seemed almost as if we had the whole beach to ourselves (very quiet and relaxing). We spent most of our time in the gallery or on the beach, but the inside rooms were nicely decorated and comfortable. My only complaint about the condo would be the mattress in the master. It was extremely firm, which I'm not used to.

Beach lounge chairs, beach towels, and snorkel equipment were all there and ready to use. The grounds are very well maintained, and we appreciated having a security gate at the entrance and security personnel keeping an eye on the property. Having the safe available for stowing valuables also brought peace of mind. The local property manager and owners are very helpful and quick to respond to any messages or issues that may come up.

My husband and I stayed at a hotel in the town of Christiansted on our last trip, and this place was so much better! If you want to go into Christiansted to shop or eat out, then it's only a short car ride away. We would definitely choose to stay here again for future trips.

Great View, Clean Place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week for some relaxation. The condo was very clean had a patio that opened onto a beach where you can watch the sunrise and had plenty of clean towels and linens. The owners provided a list of favorite places and charters, this was a great help for scheduling tours and picking hidden gem restaurants. I would stay again, great value.
