Why Owner chose Estate Golden Rock
Twenty-seven years ago, my wife and I wanted to get away for 'just a week' but we didn't want to chance a cold spell in Florida. And we didn't want to leave the safety of the USA. So we traveled to the USVI, St. Croix. Knowing nothing about our destination except it was in the Virgin Islands, we discovered a lifestyle change that has lasted and will continue to last for our entire life.
What makes this Condo unique
Why did we chose St. Croix for our home away from home after vacationing there two years in a row? The one overriding reason was the people. The friendliness of the people and the great weather, coupled with the pace of life on the island, slow and slower, make it the ideal get away spot. You MUST say hello or good morning/afternoon/evening to all the locals and everyone with whom you come in contact or pass on the street. It is considered very rude not to do this. When you do, you will be rewarded with a wide smile and friendly return of the greeting in almost every case. The local Crucian people are wonderful. I can't tell you how gracious and helpful they will be to you. When you drive on island, you will be amazed that everyone stops to let everyone else out of shopping malls, and side streets. Then you get a 'honk' to acknowledge your kindness. So don't forget to 'honk' when someone lets you into traffic or to turn in front of them. After over 28 years, it still amazes me. Because the restaurants are all very casual and our having a full size washer and dryer in the unit, you can often pack a carry-on with bathing suit and a few things for a weeklong stay or longer. We had a family of four adults (mom, dad, and two grown daughters) that did exactly that. Getting into and out of airports easily with no baggage fees is a pleasure.

Great stay in St Croix
We had a great visit to this unit - all was as described, which we found a bit rare given the devastation we saw in other locations on the island. Very clean, close to a great (nearly private) beach, the pool was in great shape and the security was very good as well.
We were close to everything with a car, although a walk thru the adjacent neighborhood is not recommended. (but a walk or run on the beach is recommended and very safe).
We also really appreciated the folding beach chairs and the coolers - we used them every day. Directions to the unit were great and other suggestions were spot-on for things to do in the area.
The only negative we found were the hardness of the beds, which easily could be solved with memory foam toppers (if available on St. Criox), and a more intense air conditioner, but otherwise the place was very well furnished, clean, really pleasant, and overall a great value. We would stay here again, but only with a car to get around safely.
We also had a nice call from the owner upon arrival and they were very nice and willing to do whatever to make the stay positive.
Beautiful two bedroom, two bath condo in Colony Cove with a balcony overlooking the property and Caribbean Sea. Bathrooms are updated and spa like. Very clean and well maintained. Full kitchen and washer, dryer in unit. Snorkeling and pools steps away. Conveniently located near downtown Christiansted.
Great time at Colony Cove
We just spent 2 weeks at Colony Cove and we had a great time. Lynda and George are great hosts. They are very helpful if you need any help with anything. The condo has everything you need for a lovely stay. Enjoyed the large balcony for relaxing after touring the island or just having morning coffee. The pool is very nice and never busy and there is always a nice breeze on the beach. This is our 2nd time to the island staying at Colony Cove in the last 2 years, we will be back again next year. Thank you, Lynda and George.
Very comfortable, relaxing condo
We had a wonderful time at this condo! My husband and two college age daughters had plenty of room to relax. The décor was very tasteful and the updated bathrooms and kitchen were appreciated. The condo has really convenient features like ceiling fans in both bathrooms, a makeup mirror in the master bath, blow dryers, plenty of seating in the living/dining room and balcony and a washer/dryer. The master bedroom closet has a key in the door so you can secure valuable items without using the safe. The kitchen is fully equipped and there were games, books and CD's to use that made it feel like a home away from home. I so enjoyed sitting on the balcony and enjoying the view of the ocean. The community pool was really clean and so refreshing. The location was convenient to Christiansted. We didn't rent a car and I wish we had; taxis are expensive and they charge per person. We tried to rent a car after we arrived and there were none available so make sure you make a reservation prior to your trip. You will not be disappointed in this condo. The owner was very responsive to our questions and provided a wealth of information before we arrived. I wish we could have stayed longer.
My husband and I stayed here with another couple for a week over Christmas. This place is in a great location: the beach is only steps away, grocery stores and restaurants are within walking distance, and it is a short drive to almost anywhere on the island. There was plenty of room for the four of us and the two bathrooms were very nice. The balcony is fabulous; we enjoyed eating and relaxing here as often as possible. At night we could hear the waves, wind, and frogs - but little else. It was so peaceful. The condo has all the things you need for cooking. Plus, the washer and dryer allowed us to pack very lightly!
The beds are a little hard for my liking, but they were in good shape. The internet service was poor, but it was only three months after the hurricanes, so I think that may have played a role.
The island was still undergoing a lot of work on the power grid and buildings while we were there. That said, most places were open for business and we had a fabulous times. The hiking and snorkeling were fantastic and the weather was amazing!
We would love to come back! The owners are wonderful. They were easy to get in touch with, very helpful, and genuinely cared that we had a good time.
This is a great place to stay if you want to relax and enjoy the island for what it is.
Fabulous dream vacation
We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage children (16 and 18) and we had the most wonderful vacation at St. Croix. Besides the gorgeous scenery, the unbelievable underwater world and the outstanding beaches, Lynda's apartment was the perfect holiday domicile for us. We felt at home the moment we entered the accomodation. It has a spacious living room with a nice open kitchen with everything you need for cooking. The two bedrooms are really comfortable and they are ideal for a family with children (the 2nd bedroom has 2 seperate beds). However the most wonderful room of all, was the balkony. It doesn't have direct view to the ocean, but you can see it and you also see the nice garden with the palm trees. In the evening you can sit there forever and listen to the sounds of the night. The balkony Is ideally located in the wind shadow of the neighbour apartments.
After waking up in the morning we always went swimming at the beach. The water is wonderful and even though I heard many comments about seaweed, there are many possibilities at the huge beach to enter the water without getting in touch with the seaweed. the pool is nice as well, but we prefered the ocean. All over the Island are wonderful beaches, the most exceptionel one we saw at Buck Island.
The apartement is located in a gated area about 3 km away from Christiansted. We walked there a few times and it took us between 30 and 45 minutes. Christiansted is a very nice little town with a lot of restaurants. The only negative thing I have to mention is, that everything on this Island is very expensive. However this won't dicourage us from coming back.
You rise almost every morning to a fabulous sunrise coming over the island from the east. You can drive (on the left) all over the island to enjoy magnificent beaches; snorkeling and scuba; night scuba diving at the pier in Fredericksted; sailing to and snorkeling at the only underwater national park in the US parks system, Buck Island; you can go on eco-hikes to natural mineral hot baths; at the right time of year, you can arrange to see the sea turtles nest at Sandy Point; you can fish and grille the catch at the pool; eat out at a plethora of great restaurants; play golf at the Robert Trent Jones, Sr. golf course or the Buccaneer with it's fabulous views; you can drive to Point Udall and stand on the furthest Eastern point of the United States of America; you can drive into the rain forest and visit the beer-drinking pigs; you can go into downtown Christiansted and shop at the duty free shops and the wonderful art galleries full of art from local and famous artists; you can take the Sea Plane from downtown Christiansted to Charlotte Amalie Harbor on St. Thomas and spend the day there, shopping and eating; or just plop-down by the pool or beach and soak in the warm Caribbean sun. You get the best of all worlds at our condo. While being an Ocean Front Property with all the amenities of your home at your fingertips in a gated community, you are on an island in the Caribbean with all the fun and sun things to do; being in the United States, the USVI has all the 'comforts' of home, but you only need a US driver’s license or other valid i.d. not a passport to travel here. You can literally walk a few blocks to the main road to find grocery stores the same as a Giant or Kroger; McDonalds; Subway; KFC: Fitness Centers; etc. As you will see from reading our VRBO reviews, we go to great lengths to make your stay at our condo an enjoyable one. Thank you for considering our 'home away from home' for your vacation destination. We hope to hear from you.
