Property description

We fell in love with this unit the first time we saw it. It is one of four units in our complex with direct access from the lanai to the beach and water. You will love to just walk out the gate from the lanai to walk along the beach, relax on lounge chairs under the palm trees, watch the pelicans dive for breakfast or snorkel with the fish by the manmade reef in the bay. You will be just a few steps from the pool. Too lazy to cook after a day in the sun? Walk to Breezez about 100 yards down the beach for lunch or dinner. Or just go next door to The Golden Rail (open for breakfast, lunch and dinner). Two grocery stores are within walking distance. Drive just 7 minutes to Christiansted to enjoy duty-free shopping, art galleries, historical buildings, quaint shops, and several great restaurants. We are centrally located mid-island on the north shore. It is only a short drive to some of the most spectacular beaches in the world.


You will love this clean, updated unit:
Our unit has been renovated with new tile, paint, appliances, kitchen cabinets, bathrooms, blinds, linens and furniture. We have an air conditioner in the living area and one in each bedroom. The master bedroom has a king size bed, two night stands, a dresser and a closet. The master bath has a vessel sink in the vanity area and the stool and shower in a separate area. The master suite is separated from the rest of the condo by a door. The guest bedroom has twin beds which can be easily converted to a king by the staff before you arrive. The guest room has a night stand, a chest of drawers and a closet. The full bath is directly across the hall. There is a washer and dryer in a closet in the hall. The kitchen has full size appliances; a refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, and microwave. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, dishes, pots, pans, etc. There are two stools for counter seating. The dining area has a glass top table and four chairs. The living room has a sofa, love seat, end tables, a coffee table and a wall mounted flat screen TV. We have internet (wifi) and cable in the unit.


Rent a car to see the sights:
We recommend renting a car to take advantage of the great variety of recreational activities on St Croix. There are three golf courses. Carambola is stunning. You can go horsebackriding on the west end in the rain forest and on the beach. Visit the botanical gardens set in the picturesque ruins of an old sugar plantation. The TanTan Tour is an exciting jeep tour to the top of the mountains in the rain forest and then down to wade in a tide pool on the north end. Visit the historic towns of Christiansted and Fredericksted. Take a hike from Point Udall down to Jack's and Isaac's Bay or hike from Carambola to the tide pools. Visit the Whim Museum or the Lawaetz Family Museum to learn about life on St. Croix in days gone by. Don't miss the crab races at several local restaurants. Also the night kayaking in glass bottom kayaking to see the bioluminescesnce is great fun.
Set sail on a Tall Boat, the Roseway for a sunset sail and support local kids and their learning experience on the Roseway.


Enjoy the beaches and the water:
There are too many beautiful beaches on St. Croix to name. You will want to visit as many as you can. Many of these beaches have great snorkeling. For the scuba divers, there are shipwrecks to explore, as well as 'The Wall' at Cane Bay. Don't miss taking a charter boat to snorkel at Buck Island (an underwater national park). Help hoist the sails on a hundred year old sailing ship, the Roseway, as you head out on a sunset cruise. Try night kayaking in a glass kayak to see the magical bioluminescence underwater in the dark. You can rent jet skis or try kiteboarding or windsurfing. Charter a sail boat or do some deep sea fishing from a fishing boat.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: My husband and I are retired. We bought this unit to spend time in a tropical climate to escape the cold in the north. It has been one of the best decisions we every made. We have fallen in love with St Croix, the people, the culture and especially the beautiful beaches. We love the fact that St. Croix is not crowded with tourists. We enjoy driving around on uncrowded roads to lovely quiet beaches. I have started watercolor painting since I retired. There seems to be a clairity and brightness to the colors on St. Croix. The sunsets and sunrises are stunning. Each spectacular beach is a painting waiting to happen. The spectacular views take my breath away. The tropical flowers are delightful. The plantation ruins and boarded up structures give you a glimpse into the history of the island. I find beauty at every turn and it inspires me to try to capture my impressions in my watercolors.

Why the Owner Chose Christiansted, St. Croix, USVI:
We love the view from the condo out to the beach and the ocean. We love the location. It is centrally located on the north shore just minutes from Christiansted, grocery shopping and wonderful beaches. We can walk directly out to the beach from our condo. We enjoy the beach, the pool, the grill and the gardens at Colony Cove. We also appreciate the fact that St Croix is a US Territory so we feel very much at home and safe on St. Croix. Our friends don't need a passport to visit us.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our unit has been totally renovated. It seems like new and it is very clean.You will enjoy the updated kitchen and bathrooms. We have wifi access and a local house phone. The new furniture and linens give it a tropical feeling. We enjoy sitting on the lanai in the evening and just watching the moon come up over the ocean. We like walking out our gate to walk on the beach or read on the lounge chairs in the sun. We enjoy visiting with friends at the pool and grilling our dinner while we chat. We also enjoy snorkeling along the manmade reef in our bay. We have seen all kinds of fish, rays, lobster, turtles and even an octopus. Our unit has the best location in the complex and it is one of the nicest units at Colony Cove. We go to St. Croix twice a year to make sure the unit is well maintained.
