Christiansted condo description

Enjoy the sunrise in this well equipped sandy beach front two bedroom and two bath Colony Cove condominium. The condo is on the 2nd floor so you will have privacy from beach goers. A little morning sun on the gallery but nicely shaded and breeze cooled the rest of the day. Feel like you are right over the sea from the gallery. Pool is steps away and convenient when a snack/drink/or toilet is needed. Snorkel in a reef protected bay. Views of Buck Island and boats going by in the distance. A short drive one mile to Christiansted with a grocery store down the road. Walk the beach and swim in the pool. Very peaceful and beautiful!

There are excellent restaurants and authentic shopping and night life a short walk from the condominium. Also, enjoy superb snorkeling and scuba diving in front of the condominium and also at a handful of beaches all over the island. We suggests guests visit the web site for a wealth of information about the island.

A rental car is nice to have to see the rest of the island but is not necessary as there are plenty of taxis. Christiansted is located on the North East end of St. Croix and has easy access to other islands including Buck Island and St. Thomas.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: Both of us were born and raised in upstate New York. We have lived in many places across the Northeast. I'm a retired USDA government employee. Ernie is a retired businessman and Air Force flying officer. He has traveled extensively around the world and visited all seven continents. Our love of antique cars has taken us many places as well. We love having outdoor time and being able to exercise as well as keeping busy withprojects on our home. Now that we are both retired, we decided to 'go for it' and fulfill our dream of owning a place in the Virgin Islands. This condo unit is exactly what we had hoped for. We love St. Croix and the lifestyle it offers.

                  Why the Owner Chose Christiansted:
                  When we married, Ernie wanted to show me one of his favorite places he had visited during his flying career, the island of St. Croix! We had such a wonderful stay and have continued to return for the last 10 years. We discovered Colony Cove, in the Christainsted area, and fell in love with the complex. It has everything one might want for a wonderful tropical stay. There is a georgous tropical garden, beautifully maintained pool, and of course the beach. You can walk less than a mile to local grocery stores, drug store and restaurants. If you choose, you can walk, drive or take a taxi to the city of Christiansted. The stores and restaurants/pubs there are fun to check out. Christiansted has various cultural activities going on anytime during the year, such as 'Jump-Up' festival. For the sports enthusiasts there are multiple sporting activities to take part in. The beach is directly in front of the condo where beach chairs are provided for leisurely soakin up the island days. By way of several chartered excursion boats, you can go to 'Buck Island', an underwater National Park, where outstanding snorkeling and scuba are known the world over.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  The unit is in the only beachfront building in the Colony Cove complex. Sunshine, sea breezes, comfortable modern furnishings and a gorgeous gallery overlooking the ocean are but just a few of the perks with this condo. You have security knowing you are in a gated complex. Colony Cove is very private and all of the employees there are very courteous and friendly.
