We also provide lush bath linens, beach towels and bedding. The main living space (gallery, living room, kitchen and dining) has a direct ocean front view with sliding doors along that whole area..you can look out and all you can see are the beautiful gardens, welcoming pool area, the ocean and enticing, imaginative, Buck Island and all its hidden wonders. You open all the sliding doors and enjoy the great tropical breeze or just relax with a beverage on the gallery with a good book you have been meaning to get to or just enjoy your coffee and watch the sunrise..you relax and aahhh just enjoy. This is St. Croix on Colony Cove at its finest...Or perhaps you are a night person, you can't sleep, you go out in the middle of the night; look at the stars; hear the ocean and listen to the sounds around you and it soothes your soul... yes you can now sleep..The comfort this place can bring you to rejuvenate your being and outlook is amazing! Perhaps you are stressed with your job, life and family demands...take the time to enjoy your spouse or children or other family members; smile or giggle and reflect back, fall in love all over again with your spouse, watch your children or grandchildren enjoying the beach, building sand castles or pointing out the colorful fish or just spend time playing with them and just watch them smile and let it bring joy to your heart. Take your new wife out and make memories or spend time with your wife and children of many years as well and recall the times in between you spent together and savor them.' Then take the time to reminisce and fondly talk about and recall those times together with a happy heart..find peace within yourselves, be thankful of all you have and never take it for granted...The "haves" of want we want are not important compared to what we need to stay connected, it is the memories of time spent while we are here and the love we gave to one another and the time we shared as family or with friends that truly matter and are a gift. Whether you choose to rent this condo for your future memories or not does not matter, perhaps you may choose to go camping in a tent together in the woods, or for a picnic in the park, or a hike in the woods, fishing, a backyard get together or just a simple ride in the country or mountains it does not matter as long as you keep the memories alive for the next generation to look back upon with love and appreciation for the time spent together.But please just take the time to "love the ones your with"..the rest will all be there upon your return..its okay to just be and enjoy each other! From one who knows and now savors and looks forward to the time spent...life is too short please remember that! Please take the time just to enjoy your lives and those you care about, life goes by quicker than we think..It does not matter what we own, what we have achieved, who we know, or how much money we have...it is how we loved and what we gave back for the life we have been blessed by God to have been given..enjoy what time you have now for we know not what tomorrow will bring.. Thank you for your interest...

About Laurie Raymaakers
My husband John and I were what you would call cruise-aholics we have taken a winter cruise for the last 10 years....We had worked so hard for so many years and never took a vacation for just the two us, then on one of our cruises 4 years ago we discovered St Croix! It was fantastic....We fell in love with the island and returned three more times and explored it and met and talked with the people living there and determined that would be the place to later settle down for retirement everything was so enjoyable! The beaches, culture, people, things to do and places to see, restaurants, snorkeling, the beauty of the island and helpfulness and kindness of everyone and acceptance of just who you are. It is everything you could imagine and so much more and that is why we chose to buy in St Croix. You will not find a better place to just be and enjoy and relax.
Laurie Raymaakers purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Laurie Raymaakers chose Estate Golden Rock
During our search for a Caribbean home we looked at so many properties...we wanted something that was enjoyable for potential renters to enjoy, for our family and grandchildren and that was also well maintained without anyone being there 24/7. Colony Cove is beautiful; from the lush gardens; the pool area and the beach area to just relax. While our beachfront is not ideal for swimming (there are many other great beaches for that close by) it is very good for snorkeling or just relaxing and feeling the Caribbean breeze, the warmth and sunshine while gazing at the Caribbean water, and the pool area is fantastic. We also loved the layout of our unit compared to so many others and how the main living space embraces the ocean ...Our condo is on the third floor (no noise above us); it is ocean facing and has an incredible view of the gardens; the pool; the ocean and Buck Island. Our condo as I mentioned is direct ocean facing and we open all the sliding glass doors and love to enjoy the wonderful tropical breeze. The staff of our condo association are so knowledgeable, helpful, welcoming and kind that they become friends...It is all just wonderful!
What makes this Condo unique
Our condo is very close to Christiansted Harbor which is a wonderful place to go walk, dine, visit art galleries, take in a show, listen to live music, tour the historical buildings and fort, shop if you choose and explore....I would recommend renting a vehicle to fully explore the beautiful island ...However if driving in the "left lane" is not for you; no problem..taxi rates are very reasonable or you can walk to the harbor. There are grocery stores and everything you need close by. If you are looking for ideas on how to spend your vacation our condo has brochures on things to do, dining out, tours, maps and monthly events...If you feel like just lounging around..enjoy the pool..float on a raft..watch your children splash in the pool...go for a moonlit walk on the beach...relax on your gallery...cook on the grill pool side and enjoy conversation with others..you may meet new friends! The choices are endless! Our condo has everything you need to help you enjoy your stay.

My second stay was as enjoyable as the first. As I said in my previous review, the unit was as advertised. I would highly recommend this property for vacation or extended stay. Thanks again for great stay!
Well, it rained almost the entire week we were on the island, but we had the best view you could imagine. The beach at Colony Cove wasn't great, but the one next door was better.
The condo was amazing, best VHR I've ever rented! Well stocked and clean. Would definitely go back.
It was very much as advertised.
The property is very clean and comfortable. The kitchen has modern appliances and is well stocked with cooking/eating utensils and counter top equipment. There are ample towels and linens along with a wide variety of vacation items for use during your stay. The owners were easy to contact and have very good local property management to help with issues. I am already planning my next stay at this spot. Thanks for the great visit!
Beautiful, modern, clean, comfortable, well equipped with all the comforts of home.
The property is conveniently located near supermarkets, pharmacies, clinics, gas stations, government buildings, etc. etc. in a beautifully maintained location just steps away from the beach. It is very clean and comfortable. It is well stocked with all of the amenities of a home away from home. This is my second time staying at the property for an extended period of time and if I go back to St. Croix, I wouldn't hesitate to stay there a third time. I have recommended it to family and friends.
A very nice stay at a very nice condo!
Everything is as advertised. It has all the amenities one would need in a safe, secure location. Would stay here again!
We absolutely loved our stay. Everything was so clean and comfortable. The owners had so much to offer.. beach chairs, beach towels and cooler! The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need to cook. I would stay here again and again! Highly recommend.
The whole island is so wonderful! St Croix is a gorgeous island and everyone is so friendly...It is self sufficient and does not rely on tourism to survive.
