Overview

About the property

Beachfront Condo with Fantastic Ocean View, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths (Sleeps 5)

On the large private balcony of Aqua Dream, you feel like you’re floating over the warm aqua waters of the Caribbean Sea. There’s nothing between you and the sea – you can almost reach out and touch it as you watch the Pelicans and sea birds swooping right in front of you.

The Balcony is everybody's favorite! It hangs over the beach yet is private from beachcombers. Spectacular panoramic views surround you, palm trees gently rustle while trade winds caress you.

Our 2 BR/2 Bath condo is located on the second floor of the only beachfront building in Colony Cove. Both the living room and master bedroom have huge sliding glass doors which open onto the over-sized balcony with unobstructed views.

Lounge in the living room and enjoy the free WiFi, TV, DVD and stereo. The 2 Bedrooms are comfortable with King bed (or 2 twins convertible to king), extra pillows, dresser, ample closets and AC. Each bathroom has a shower (1 also has a tub) and is well-stocked with towels and amenities.

The kitchen is fully-equipped with all major appliances including microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer, dishes and utensils, spices and even a blender and complimentary bottle of rum to make your special tropical drink creation.

Food shopping is a short walk/drive down the road. Dine on the moonlit balcony, at the many good restaurants in Christiansted, or at two fine restaurants just steps away.

Aqua Dream is located in the gated community of Colony Cove and measures 1200 sq feet. It’s fabulous for just relaxing, swimming in the fresh water pool or snorkeling right off the beach in the reef protected cove. We even provide snorkel equipment. 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.

Christiansted is 1.5 miles to the east, easily accessible by taxi or car. St. Croix offers a wide variety of outdoor activities. We recommend exploring the island by tour or by rental car. The island terrain varies from dry desert in the East to Rainforest in the West exhibiting an array of flora and wildlife and historical sites. Try your luck at the Casino, ride horses on the beach or 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 smiling, friendly people of St. Croix will create island memories to treasure forever.

Treat yourself and Book today! We cater to your needs. Just bring yourself, relax and enjoy!

Why Gail chose Estate Golden Rock

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.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is located on the second floor of the 'D' building - the only Beachfront building of our 60-unit condominium - a private, gated, security patrolled community with free WiFi throughout. The trade winds and ceiling fans provide natural, quiet cooling and we have air conditioning if needed. 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 over 25 varieties of fish) 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

. . . We had a wonderful time . . . Having a washer and dryer right in the unit was great! But, I must say that the absolute best part was your balcony! We found ourselves out there all the time! We would love to rent your place again. . . Thanks for owning such a great condo!

Amazing Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at this condo. My husband and I were there looking for property to buy. We absolutely loved this condo - the view is AMAZING. The location can't be beat as you are 5 minutes from Christensted and a short drive to everything else. Gail was great to work with. We spent every morning and every evening sitting out on the patio looking at the ocean. The snorkeling right off the beach is pretty good. A trip to Buck Island with Big Beards is a must see when you are there. We had a car and drove all over the island. Cane Bay was great and the snorkeling there was really good. We will be back!!!!

Best Vacation Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 2 adult children spent 2 weeks at Aqua Dream and let me tell you, it was like something right out of a dream. The condo was everything we expected and more!! The second we opened the door we knew that we had booked the right condo. THE VIEW!!!! The amenities in the condo were perfect and the whole complex was stunning. Gail was super easy to work with leading up to our trip and the entire damage deposit was returned to us very quickly. We enjoyed our time just lounging by the pool, or on the beach right below the deck. However we also enjoyed our time touring the island. A trip on Black Beard's "Renegade" to Buck Island is a must. We did rent a cart and would recommend that. Having a BBQ grill was a nice feature.

We loved the place so much that we have already booked 3 weeks for next winter!!!

Perfect location, very comfortable condo, and great owner to work with!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, teen son, and I stayed in the two-bedroom Aqua Dream condo for a week. It was magical. The location was a perfect distance from Christiansted. We snorkeled right in front of the condo where there was a sunken tire reef (amazing marine life, including a spotted eagle ray!). The views were the best of the condo complex. Beds were very comfortable. Everything worked great! The grounds staff were very friendly, as were the neighboring residents. We loved being able to wake up to amazing views every morning on the lanai with our coffee, take long walks on the beach, and saunter over to the bar/restaurant next door when we didn't want to venture out anymore. Although we could use the grill at the pool, we chose not to - we were on vacation. We did have a rental car to get to other corners of the island, but I was told that a cab ride into town was only $12. There is a grocery store and restaurants within walking distance.... As for the owner, she was wonderful to work with - we really appreciated the professionalism, welcome letter, favorites listing, etc. - Gail's attention to detail and prompt responses to any of our questions was very much appreciated. I highly recommend checking out Aqua Dream in Colony Cove, St. Croix USVI!!!

Exactly What We Wanted - Perfect Location & Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

One of the best vacations I have ever had!

My girlfriend and I stayed in this beautiful condo for 8 nights and it wasn't long enough. The place is fully furnished with full kitchen, coffee maker, blender, toaster oven, lobster pot etc...it has everything. This 2nd floor condo is quite spacious for 2-4 people. The best part about this place is the AMAZING view on the deck especially in the AM when the sun rises over Buck Island & Christiansted!

Colony Cove is quite safe and quiet. We had no problems with security or noise, and felt very safe the whole time we stayed there. There is a security guard that watches all cars/people that enter/exit the place 24/7. There is also a really nice grill in the pool area that we used multiple times - it's both gas and charcoal compatible.

I could go on and on but I think this is enough for you to trust that this place is awesome.

Also, 3 musts on the island:

1) Cruzan Rum Distillery Tour

2) Pt. Udall & Hike to Issac's Beach/Jack's Beach

3) Eat @ Bombay Club In Christiansted

Wow, what a great condo and location. My husband, daughter and son-in-law spent 11 nights at Gail's condo and what a great time we had. The condo was fantastic. The complex staff was friendly and helpful. But I can't talk enough about the view and the fabulous balcony. As others have said this is the best part of the condo and you will find yourself hanging out there and having your meals at every opportunity. The snorkeling on the tire reef just off shore is fantastic too. You will see many varieties of fish, spiny lobsters tucked into the tires and an occasional ray as well. The weather was perfect and the trade winds were blowing much of the time which keeps it from getting to warm. An important note from my perspective is Gail's condo is one of the few that don't have black bars going along the balcony which keeps the view spectacular and unobstructed which cannot be said for most of the condos in this complex, so rent Gail's condo if you want the best view and to be the closest to the water. You will not be disappointed. Thanks for the use of your condo Gail!

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

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.
