  • Wonderful getaway!

    "We loved this place! It was beautiful and an excellent location. The customer service was outstanding and all the advice on where to go, shop, who to use for scuba trips and other excursions was over the top. We really enjoyed all the amenities including snorkel gear and kayaks. We had a fabulous time!"

  • Snow birds

    "We stayed in condo 407014 on the second floor. We had a wonderful two months staying in the condo. It was as promised in the VRBO website. We had a georgeous view of the sea and the pool area was very inviting. We enjoyed many morning sunrises on the beach with our coffee. The owners we met were very friendly and helpful. The weather was almost perfect. We would recommend this condo and the complex to all our friends and relatives. We enjoyed ourselves. We rented a car as my husband has a little difficulties walking any distance. We did spend many nights at the restaurants within easy beach walking from the condo."

  • Great stay at Colony Cove !

    "Colony Cove was such a great alternative to the resorts we stayed at before. This unit had everything we wanted to make our vacation perfect. We had a fully equipped kitchen,comfortable bedrooms, living room,dining area,TV and internet,Even pool stuff and snorkel gear. The condo was clean,nicely decorated and comfortable. It was easy to pretend that we lived there,LOL.The view from the balcony was amazing. Palm trees and crystal blue water. There is a nice pool and beautiful gardens. We picked fresh bananas right off a tree by the pool. The kids loved playing on the beach and snorkeling right out front, no need to even drive for great snorkeling. Colony Cove is close enough to town to be convenient for dining and shopping but nestled down on the beach for privacy.The neighbors were friendly and directed us to cool stuff like Buck Island Charters,the Tidal Pools,Rum Factory and great places to eat. We will definately be back next year !"

  • Exactly what we needed for vacation

    "The one-bedroom was extremely clean, there were plenty of kitchen supplies, it is centrally located on the island, and the patio overlooked the ocean. There is a pool/hot tub - but we were so enamored with exploring the numerous beaches, we never used it! Our favorites on the island included ocean kayaking from the Tamarind Resort (1/2 day rental is $30 for single, $40 for double kayak) - we were able to kayak out to a deserted island and along several remote beaches. We also paddleboarded off of Rainbow Beach and hiked to the tide pools. We really enjoyed going during low season, because we had the majority of the beaches all to ourselves!"

Christiansted Travel Tips

Getting to Christiansted Vacation Rentals

Christiansted is one of the main towns on the island of St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands. It was once the capital of the Danish West Indies and many of the historic landmarks reflect the colonial architecture of that era. Henry Rolston International Airport is one of the two major airports in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The airport hosts regularly scheduled direct flights with the U.S. mainland on several North American airlines. To cater to the European market, there are also direct commercial flights between St. Croix and several major European cities. There are also regular regional flights from neighboring islands including Puerto Rico, San Juan and St. Thomas.

Activities and Things to Do near Christiansted Resort Rentals

St. Croix is famous for its beautiful tropical coral reefs and abundant marine life. Divers can expect to see huge gorgonian fans, masses of tropical reef fish and enjoy pristine diving conditions. If you are happier on top of the water instead of underneath it, you can still enjoy the marvels of the reefs on various snorkeling excursions.

Kayaks and windsurfers are available for rent at many of the resorts and beaches. Kayaking is a great way to explore the coastline. If you want to improve your windsurfing skills, you can always sign up for a few classes at the local surf shop. Kite boarding is another popular activity along the coast.

Nature lovers can view some of the turtle nesting sites. There are several environmental groups that conduct studies on the turtles' nesting habits and they are always glad for volunteers who can assist with their monitoring and research.

For those that want a bit of pampering, there are several health spas that offer massage and a range of other beauty treatments. Some have treatment rooms overlooking the beautiful coastline where you can relax and enjoy your treatment.

There are three golf courses on St. Croix and tee-off times can be arranged by calling the golf club or resort. Several resorts have tennis courts where you can enjoy a game with a group of friends. Because the days can be quite hot, many of the courts are lit so you can enjoy an evening game when the temperatures are moderately cooler.

Travelers to Christiansted Villas

People that choose to stay at Christiansted vacation homes are those that enjoy stylish tropical vacations. It is a popular vacation destination for corporate executives looking for a break away from busy city life. Scuba divers are drawn to the pristine coral reefs and almost perfect diving conditions. Sun lovers come to soak up the sun’s rays on the beautiful sandy beaches. St. Croix is a destination that invites relaxation. It is also a wonderfully romantic destination and popular with honeymooners or couples celebrating special wedding anniversaries.

Best Season to USVI St. Croix Vacation Rentals

St. Croix has what some people refer to as a perpetual summer season. The tropical climate is consistently warm throughout the year with little seasonal variation. The only thing that distinguishes the seasons are the amounts of rainfall and humidity. While Christiansted can be visited year-round, the only season to be cautious of is the rainy season when tropical storms or hurricanes occur on occasion. This is between June and November, with most storms occurring in August and September. The island is well equipped to deal with hurricanes and has storm shelters. With the exception of tropical storms, rain showers do not generally last long. These showers usually occur in the early morning or evening, and are short-lived. The days, while humid, are still wonderfully sunny. The driest months are February and March and this is also the peak tourist season. Year-round, the water temperatures remain fairly constant, providing excellent diving and snorkeling conditions.
