Property description

ENJOY the SUN , BEACH and POOL when you stay in our Unit at Colony Cove, centrally located on the North Shore. There are two things you should know about our condo -- it has CENTRAL A/C and NO STEPS TO CLIMB -- it is located on the first floor! The unit has TWO BEDROOMS, TWO BATHS and has ALL THE AMENITIES OF HOME including washer/dryer, three TV's, DVD/VCR player with some movies, board games, books, snorkeling gear, free WIFI, linens and towels, electric sweeper, and a FULLY EQUIPPED kitchen with a reverse osmosis system so you can drink pure, clean water right from the kitchen sink! The condo complex is gated and has 24 security. Our condo is fabulous for relaxing on the large SHADED PATIO with a BEAUTIFUL VIEW of sea, gardens and pool. Feel free to pick fresh herbs from the garden such as parsley and rosemary to use if you choose to make dinner!

Take a few steps out the door and you will find yourself at the sandy beach or the fresh water pool. 'Long Reef' is about 2 miles long!!!! It provides TRANQUIL WATERS AND BEACH FOR SMALL CHILDREN. SNORKEL or SCUBA DIVE right off the beach in this VAST REEF PROTECTED BEACH/COVE. A variety of habitat zones exist where you'll see tropical fish, rays, turtles, coral, conch, lobster, starfish and on and on......

GROCERY SHOPPING is a short walk down the road. You can take advantage of the GAS OR CHARCOAL GRILL located by the pool. TWO RESTARUANTS ARE WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE from Colony Cove. Teddy's is located right next door and offers great food and live entertainment. Breezes is a short walk down the beach and the food is excellent.

The town of Christiansted is 1.5 miles to the east and accessible by walking, taxi or rental car. The boardwalk overlooks Christiansted harbor and is a nice place to have breakfast, lunch, or dinner. There are also many specialty shops including local crafts, clothing, jewelry and more. Make sure you try your luck at the crab races! We have been taking our kids to the crab races since 2005. It is still the very first thing they ask to do upon our arrival.

St. Croix offers a variety of outdoor activities. Enjoy the beach/pool at Colony Cove or the numerous beaches around the island. Take a trip west to the rainforest for a horseback riding adventure. Drive to the town of Frederiksted and tour Fort Frederik, do some shopping, fish at the pier (bring your swimsuit and jump off the pier if you have the guts, stairs are provided), and enjoy the white sandy beaches. There is a Casino on the island, golf courses, as well as miniature golf. See an island show, take a seaplane to St. Thomas or St. John for the day, or sail to Buck Island, a famous national underwater park. The Wall at Cane Bay has some of the best snorkeling and shore diving in the world. You can also take a kayak tour, ATV ride, go deep sea fishing, sailing, parasailing, surfing, hiking, and much more. Visit the Botantical Gardens and the Rum Distillery.

When you arrive at the airport make sure you pick up a copy of 'St. Croix This Week'. Here are some additional websites that list activities around the island:

Car: Recommended

St. Croix is ringed by beaches of all shapes and sizes, some are long white sand stretches, others are small patches shaded by low sea grape trees and towering coconut palms. Some have smooth sandy bottoms ideal for swimming, and others have rock and coral-lined entries perfect for snorkeling!

St. Croix is the only Caribbean Island where a diver can explore a wall that drops over 13,000 feet, dive a reef that is the largest living reef of any Caribbean Island, dive five wrecks that are within 100 yards of each other and dive a pier.

Shopping in St. Croix is a sight-seeing tour in itself! Quaint shops are tucked in historic buildings made of cut coral, molasses mortar, and Danish bricks brought as ballast on the trading ships of the 1700 and 1800s! Interesting shaded courtyards in these restored buildings house shopping arcades.

Experience the thrill of riding an all-terrain vehicle (ATV). Drive one of our ATV's on a guided excursion along mountainous trails through the Sub-Tropical Rain Forest, exploring historical ruins, and viewing amazing vistas of the north shore and the island. Fun, excitement, and adventure all wrapped up into one great tour. Each ATV is designed to accommodate two persons so bring your family and enjoy a true island adventure.

Sail aboard St.Croix's Teroro II or Dragonfly (40' Trimarans) and experience a personalized tour of Buck Island National Monument. The Underwater trail is a snorkel sight second to none with visibility up to 100 feet and only accessible by boat.

The island's barrier reef shelters thousands of tropical fish and turtles, that are fortunate to live in this protected marine environment. Step onto Buck Island's beautiful white sand beaches and hiking trails that reach the top of the island for mesmerizing views.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We bought this property in 2004 before our first child was born. My husband and I love traveling and we knew we didnt want to stop after the birth of our child. We also knew it would be more difficult to travel with children and we wanted the security of a tropical paradise within the USA. So, St. Croix is our second home now and many happy memories are being made!

Why the Owner Chose Christiansted:
Beautiful beach, gardens and pool. Stores and restaurants within walking distance. Unit is on the first floor -- much easier access when you have two small children! Unlike the majority of the condos, our unit has CENTRAL A/C (my husband installed it, he is a master A/C mechanic).

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Return home after a hot day in the sun and turn on the central a/c!
