Christiansted condo description
From our large private balcony it feels like you’re floating over the warm blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, while the trade winds caress you. You’re so close to the water you can almost reach out and touch it.
Our two bedroom and two bath condominium has everything you need (including a fully-equipped kitchen with washer/dryer) and is ideally located directly above the beach on the North shore of St. Croix. Both the living room and master bedroom sliding glass doors open onto the over-sized balcony, hanging over the beach with privacy from beach strollers. Our condo is located on the second floor of the 'D' building - the only beachfront building in Colony Cove and catches the cooling, gentle trade winds so that air conditioning is available but often not needed.
Spectacular panoramic views surround you. All you see from inside and out is sea, sky and beach. Enjoy the sunrise, twilight and views of Buck Island and Christiansted harbor while watching Pelicans diving and boats sailing in the distance. Our condo is fabulous for just relaxing on the balcony or beach with free WiFi, swimming in our fresh water pool, and snorkeling or scuba diving right off shore in our reef protected cove with over 25 varieties of tropical fish. Just chillax and enjoy!!
Christiansted is 1.5 miles to the east and easily accessible by taxi or rental car and food shopping is a short walk down the road. You may choose to breakfast/dine on the balcony, at two fine restaurants just steps away, or at the many delicious and excellent restaurants in and around town.
St. Croix offers a variety of outdoor activities. Exploring the island by tour or by rental car is worthwhile since the terrain varies from dry desert in the East to Rainforest in the West and both habitats exhibit an array of flora and wildlife. You may wish to try your luck at the Casino, ride horses through the rainforest or sail to Buck Island, our famous national underwater park, to snorkel. The Wall at Cane Bay has some of the best snorkeling and shore diving in the world.
The bright smiles and relaxed friendly ways of the people of St. Croix will remain with you, enhance your experience and create island memories to treasure.

ReviewsWrite a review
This was our 1st trip to the island of St. Croix. We arrived on the island in the afternoon and rented a car. The ride to the condo was uneventful and shorter than anticipated. When we entered Colony Cove it did not appear that the beach was close but boy were we wrong. The beach is literally under your balcony. The condo unit was as it was described with all of the amenities you could hope for in a vacation rental. We cooked 3 meals a day while there and found the kitchen to be fully stocked with various items need for cooking and eating. To our delight we found that there was shampoo and conditioner’s left by previous renter still in the unit, which came in very handy. The pool area was great and grounds of the association were well maintained. There was construction going on in the unit above us but it was something that we did not mind and it did not interfere with our time in the condo. The employees of Colony Cove were very helpful and guided us as requested. I recommend renting a car, it made our time on the island great because we could travel and see the rest of the island. The beds were clean and comfortable there were plenty of towels and linens for the duration of our stay. The dishwasher, washer and dryer were very useful. The free Wi-Fi came in handy and was very useful during our stay. Finally, the balcony of the unit, what a great spot to hang out on, if I had to estimate how much time we spent on the balcony during our stay I would say about 90%. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner every night on the balcony. The breeze in the unit was amazing; we slept with the bedroom slider open each night, talk about a good night’s sleep. We also used the snorkeling gear and the artificial reef just about 10-15 yards off the property was amazing!! I recommend bringing life vests approved by the U.S. Coastguard. I’m a great swimmer but snorkeling with the life vest made it that much more enjoyable. The grocery store Pueblo’s was a five minute drive from the condo. Within the 5 minute drive there is also a Subway, KFC and McDonald's. Christiansted was just around the corner and there are plenty of bars and restaurants to satisfy all sorts of appetites. It was also fun to watch the sea planes land and takeoff from the condo unit. On several days the planes actually flew over the unit to land. Overall I would recommend this condo unit to a family or a friend.

Owner response: Thanks for your comments. We're so glad you had a wonderful vacation. The balcony is our favorite spot as well.
Spectacular property! We just returned from St. Croix and stayed in this condo. It was incredible! We looked at many properties on line before deciding on this one and we were not disappointed. It is as close to the water as the pictures show, so the view is amazing. While in St. Croix, we looked at many of the other rentals and none were as good as this one. In addition to the great view, the interior was very comfortable and well furnished, the complex is beautiful and located close to Christensted. Book this unit as soon as you can because you will not find a better place to stay! We plan to return next year and enjoy it again!!

We have just gotten back from a three week stay at this condo. The condo was perfect! The view was second to none! It was clean and very comfortable and the breeze kept us cool thruout our stay. The condo site was beautiful and well maintained including the pool area. The staff that we met along with any owners were so friendly and ever so helpful! The snorkelling right outside the complex was fantastic! Took in Buck Island,Cruzen Rum Factory,both Forts and many scenic drives! The local people are very welcoming and kind. A must is to eat at any small local roadside stands or small restaurants as this is where we found the best food.. We would certainly recommend this property to any of our friends and hope to return to the Island in the near future! Gail, thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your condo totally stress free!!

We spent 10 days in St Croix with our daughters to celebrate several family 'milestones' including our 25th anniversary. This condo was the perfect place for us! The pictures show exactly what you get: a fantastic ocean view from the kitchen, LR, and MBR...a terrific balcony...very nice pool area just steps from the door and a sandy beach area for sunning and resting in the hammock right below the balcony. Cool ocean breezes blow through the condo and keep it very pleasant and comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped for meals and cocktails and we used it extensively for both! There is a common grill in the pool area that we used two or three times as well. Everyone at Colony Cove was friendly and pleasant to deal with. We borrowed additional snorkel gear from the office and occasionally borrowed the hammock for reading or a nap on the beach. Colony Cove is about 5 minutes from Christiansted and an easy driving distance from both the east and west ends of the island. Highly recommend getting a car while you are in St Croix...there is a LOT to see and do. Driving on the left takes a little focus the first couple of times but we adjusted pretty quickly. We did horseback riding, ATV and JetSki (with a really nice afternoon on Rainbow beach), Snuba and snorkeling tour to Buck Island and Green Cay. We also went snorkeling several times right from the beach at Colony Cove. There are a lot (hundreds) of fish at the tire reef which is a very easy snorkel from shore. If you are a bit more adventurous you can snorkel out further - we saw stingrays several times and the reef out near the breakers is teeming with small fish. The reef keeps it all quite calm so the snorkeling is very enjoyable! There are a lot of fun restaurants in Christiansted and around the island...too many to describe in detail but we thought they were all pretty good. A couple of highlights were appetizers and cocktails at the crab races at Ft Christian Brew Pub and a really nice anniversary dinner at Savant (just past Christiansted, get a reservation in the courtyard). Finally, I want to highlight how easy it was to work with Gail to rent this condo. All questions were answered very promptly, the instructions for check in/out very clear and easy, and she provided some great tips and 'favorites' that we referenced frequently as we were getting oriented to St Croix. We were very happy with the condo and our St Croix vacation. Wish we were still there!

Great HQ for St. Croix Vacation
Great HQ for St. Croix Vacation
We really enjoyed our stay! Everything was clean and in order, and the size and layout were perfect. The condo is literally 100' from the water's edge, on the second floor, with a gorgeous view of the beach, surf breaking over the reef, and Christiansted harbor and Buck Island in the distance. There is always a pleasant breeze blowing in the front sliding doors (one in the LR, one in the MBR) so we never needed the A/C. The location was very convenient to Christiansted (5 min, drive) or to explore the island (1/2 hr to the East End, maybe 45 min. to Fredriksted and the west end). There was plenty of space to spread out (bureaus, closets) and the kitchen was more than adequate for preparing meals although we ate out for dinner. We also enjoyed the pool and the beach. A great place to stay!

1st ever in the Carribean!
1st ever in the Carribean!
This was our first ever vacation in the Carribean and we had the perfect place! We arrived late at night to a welcoming bottle of local rum and fresh flowers. We woke up the next morning to an amazing sunrise and even more amazing view. Even though it rained most of our first two days, the way the view shifted was incredible. Gail was incredibly thoughtful when she called us shortly before our arranged vacation to let us know that unfortunately the complex had started working on the porches and although it did get ocassionally noisy, she was very gracious in compensating us and as I told her, with a view like that,it was easy to tolerate. We loved being so close to Christiansted and met a wonderful cab driver, who not only took us where we were going, but also played tour guide on occassion. We also loved walking the beach to Breeezes and got to know some of the locals. All in all, it was a wonderful vacation...quaint, friendly, and gorgeous! We will carry it with us for a long time.

The listing description and photos were completely accurate. Breaktaking views. My husband and I enjoyed waking each day to the spectacular view from our own private balcony! It was better than described. The grounds at the condo were beautiful and well maintained, pool was clean and inviting, and everyone was extremely friendly. As recommended, we got a rental car which is the only way to go (don't be afraid to drive on the left side of the road). We were all over the island. It was great. The food at Breezez was amazing--a must if you visit. We loved the organic sorbet at Jaccar, and we LOVED La Reine Chicken Shack. Can't say enough about these three favorite spots. We enjoyed the Sweeney Tour for a great overall tour of key tourist attractions and Big Beards snorkel tour to Buck Island, but having the rental made all the difference. Overall, a beautiful, fun and relaxing time with lovely surroundings. We will definitely visit again and stay at this condo if available.

this was a great experince. contacting Gail and making arrangements to book this condo were so easy. we arrived late in the afternoon and were immediately wowed when we opened the door--the whole far wall is glass and you are directly on the ocean--very dramatic (i think some of these listings fool you with photos into thinking they are beachfront). the trade winds blew the whole week so we never had to put on the a/c. having a rental car is the only way to go. they brought us the car to the condo which was convenient and we were able to leave it at the airport. we had the island to ourselves it seemed, with the exception of the 200+ Danes that are there from Copenhagen everyweek on a charter ( the island is really catering to them with menues, hotel, etc). we snorkeled in a different bay (sometimes several) everyday...Isaac's was the BEST so worth the hike--great path. Saw 3 turtles at Chenay bay. Food was great everywhere--loved Bluewater(new), Rumrunners (try the icecream sandwiches from the bar), Pizza from Smuggler's...Everywhere we went i would point out other places we could have stayed and my daughter always said--"no, where we picked to stay is the best". you will not be disappointed either! oh-- and snorkle gear was free, we borrowed gear from the "sister" condo complex down the beach. hope to return one day.

Why the Owner Chose Christiansted:
We discovered St. Croix through family & friends who lived and worked there. We keep coming back because the island is alluring and our unit is spectacular. We love the experience of our dramatic condo floating over the water - it's private yet wide open to the sea and sky. We come here to unwind, lay back with a drink, snorkel in the cove, listen to the sea and moon/star watch from the balcony.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our unit is located on the second floor of the 'D' building - the only Beachfront building of our 60-unit condominium. The trade winds and ceiling fans provide natural, quiet cooling and we have air conditioning if needed. The complex is a secure, private, gated community with free WiFi throughout. If you are planning a group visit or event, please contact us to help arrange for additional units. There is an onsite front desk/office to provide information and answer any questions you may have. You may walk to shopping, restaurants and snorkel right off shore with masks and snorkels we provide or bring your own. We suggest you rent a car to see the island although taxis are readily available. The location of our condo is private yet convenient to everything and the variety of activities both onsite and nearby provide a vacation to delight everyone.
