Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in St. Croix

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.

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!

Breath-taking

  • 5 of 5

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.

Exactly as described . . . right on the water . . . and wonderful

  • 4 of 5

It was nice to be able to walk off the porch and go straight into the water to snorkel. Place is comfortable and easy to relax. For our first trip to St. Croix, we found that the locals are lazy outside of the condo complex and have no ambition. There are many workers from mainland there and they are most helpful as they want to make you happy so you want to return. Recommend renting a jeep as some roads can be quite rough. I recommend driving around the island at the beginning of your trip as there is so much to see. Last day we went the East end and we should have gone much earlier in the trip. We plan to rent from Carl and Susan again! Have Fun!!

Simply the best!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented your lovely condo for my daughter, her husband and another couple, and they just loved it! My daughter has been here several times and this was her favorite place by far. Will definitely rent here again. Owners were so nice and accommodating and responded quickly to any questions. The condo is in a perfect location and the ocean view amazing. Everything was clean and we always felt safe. You can't go wrong staying here. Best condo in Colony Cove!

We are located two miles from downtown Christiansted and within an easy walk to grocery stores and many restaurants. There is also an artificial reef in front of our property, 50 feet from the shoreline, that has many species of fish for snorkeling.
