Welcome to Our Little Bit of Paradise (No Hurricane Damage from recent storms)

If you like the beach, you'll love our condo in the Colony Cove resort. This condo is a two bedroom, two bath unit on the 2nd floor and a quick walk to the beach or pool. From your morning coffee to your late night drink, the terrace provides you with a wonderful and relaxing place to sit and enjoy the natural beauty. The pool is literally a few feet away and is especially relaxing in the evening before you retire to your air conditioned unit.

Colony Cove is very close and convenient to many activities. From snorkeling, either in front of the condo or at Buck Island and dining locally or in Christiansted, your day won't be spent traveling all over. And if you like the casinos, the Divi Resort is only a short drive away. From exciting to relaxing, this condo has it all.

From morning to night, the condo provides for all of your needs. We have you covered with anything you would need. The morning starts with the Keurig coffee maker making your favorite blend and leads to the Ninja blender making some the most delightful tropical drinks you have tasted.

If you want to relax and watch some television, there is a larger unit in the living room and a smaller unit in the master bedroom. The stereo system also will attach to your smartphone using Bluetooth technology. No wires, no hassles.

St. Croix also has some wonderful areas to explore including some beautiful beaches throughout the island, botanical gardens and a rainforest. Take one of the tours and you'll discover parts of the island that you never envisioned.

About LJ and Janie

LJ has worked for corporations in the United States for the past 30 years. He now has a consulting business and does work with large and small companies. In addition to this, he is also a Professor for a major online university in their business program. It's always been dream of his to own property on the sea where he can teach his classes while he admires the beautiful landscape.

Janie is currently a realtor in Middle Tennessee. Prior to working in real estate, she was a manager in a major grocery store chain. She also has a passion for island living.

This condo is part of our transition from the corporate world to our 'Life in the Left Lane'.

LJ and Janie purchased this condo in 2013

Why LJ and Janie chose Estate Golden Rock

We came to St. Croix on vacation in July, 2013. After falling in love with the whole island, we decided to take a look at some condos. This led to the purchase of this condo a month later. We think that you will fall in love with St. Croix just like we did.

It's affordable for vacationing for couples, families, honeymooners, or singles that want to explore a US territory without the burden of needing a passport. It's our little bit of paradise.

What makes this condo unique

Air conditioning throughout the condo! One of the first things that we discovered when looking at St. Croix condos is that air conditioning is normally limited to the bedrooms. While the sea does provide a gentle breeze during much of the year, for vacationers not used to the heat, air conditioning in the main area can make the experience much more comfortable.

Updated Interior - After purchasing the condo, we spent a couple of weeks redoing much of the inside. Now, the condo looks more tropical and fun. We think that you'll like the additions that we've added to the kitchen and feel 'at home' during your stay.

Quiet and cozie paradise

  • 5 of 5

The condo and the trip were great. There is a very nice pool on site as well as access to the beach (and water was much more blue than the pictures on the website!) The condo staff were very helpful with a small issue and just plain friendly. The entire condo property, including parking, is gated and felt extremely safe. Location was a short drive (less than 2 miles) to downtown Christiansted. The condo was perfect for our stay and I would come back in a heartbeat!

Girls Trip Perfection

I rented this condo for an overdue reunion with some college friends. They both have never been to the island. The condo was clean, spacious, and comfortable.

Thank you.

A Little Bit of Paradise

  • 4 of 5

The beautiful view from the balcony of LJ and Janie's property depicted in the photo is accurate. To be able to sit on the balcony and enjoy the island breezes was amazing. The property is affordable and in a great location--close to Christiansted; close to a few supermarkets; close to a main road; not far from the airport; a beach and pool are located on site; and the Mill Harbor restaurant/bar is right next door, no need to drive if you don't want to. The unit is nicely decorated and I greatly appreciated the washer and dryer. Our experience was indeed relaxing and a little bit of paradise that was over too soon.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We come over to the islands every year and have stayed in upscale condos that are much more costly than this condo, but when it comes down to it this condo has all you need. The view is decent but not spectacular, but your only steps from two pools that are on the beach. One of these pools belongs to the property next door which has live bands and a bar with decent food. They have no problem with you coming over at all, and they are great people. The condo pool is nice also, and has a big gas grill that we used while there. Most of the other places I have stayed also limit the Air Conditioning to the bedrooms. I hated this because I am from Texas and when I want to cool off I don't want to wait for bedtime. Don't trust the sea breeze for cooling off. This condo accommodates adequately and won't be your most expensive investment on your vacation. It is also in a very good location for making visits to both sides of the island. I did have to test the property manager by accidentally locking myself out of the condo on Easter of all days. She was there to let me back in the condo within 30 minutes. I will stay here again in the future and thanks for having us.

A trip to paradise

  • 4 of 5

We came down for 5 days for short vacation and a wedding, and were very pleased. The people were all very pleasant and accommodating, the unit was as expected, and the grounds were very well maintained! There was also a nice bar/restaurant with music next door, right thru a gate. I would definitely recommend it.

St. Croix is stunning. From the island tours including stops at the Botanical Gardens to the tour of the Cruzan Rum Factory, St. Croix is a fantastic vacation spot. The beaches are wonderful, the wildlife is fantastic and the weather is as close to perfect as you can find.
