About Earl Parson

This property is proudly managed by:

R&R Realty

3227 Golden Rock

Christiansted, VI 00820

We acquired this property in 2011 as a stepping stone onto the island. We purchased it 'site unseen', packed up our belongings, pets and business and were not disappointed in the least. Our plan was to live in the condo while building our business, then to buy a house and vacation rent the condo.

We have been fortunate enough to realize that dream.

We are still on island with no intention of ever leaving this tropical paradise.We now have a house near North Shore and can share our beach side condo with you:)

Earl Parson purchased this condo in 2011

Why Earl Parson chose Estate Golden Rock

Colony Cove is a beach side gated complex with pool, grills and tennis courts. All units have a least a partial ocean view. 'D' building is directly on the beach. Our unit is not only in the coveted 'D' building, but is ground floor with beach access from the unit. It is also at the private end and closest to Teddy's restaurant.

The gate to Teddy's is just out the front door to the right, or walk out back and take the beach route:)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Left on Nov 14, 2016 for a stay in Nov 2016

What a beautiful place. There are just two of us but I believe this condo could handle 6 people easily. It appeared to have many new updates such as bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen. We love to cook so the large kitchen was appreciated. It was real nice to have a dishwasher and washer/dryer in the unit. The patio is the real feature here. Viewing beautiful sunsets and Christiansted at night is very relaxing. It is a short 25 feet to the waters edge. We love to snorkle, so all we needed to do was carry our snorkle gear a few steps down to some fun snorkling. The on grounds pool is beautiful and typically empty of people while we were here. Earl is a fabulous host and he makes it real easy to check-in and check-out. I would recomend this condo to anyone wishing to spend some time on St Croix!

Toes in the Sand is great

  • 4 of 5

This was a really great place to enjoy St Croix! The unit was very comfortable and the breeze coming off the water was awesome. I did not need to run the AC! Unfortunately I could only enjoy this wonderful unit for a short time because during my month stay we experienced two category five hurricanes and were without electricity for much of the time.The second hurricane destroyed the interior of this unit! However, Earl and Le did absolutely everything they could to ensure we were safe and as comfortable as possible. They moved us to another unit, before the second hurricane, and checked on us continually. It will take some time to restore Toes in the Sand, but after it is restored, I would highly recommend staying there! Until it is restored, I would also highly recommend working with Earl to stay at one of the other units he manages. Earl, thanks for being such a good host and for taking such good care of us! Hope to see you again, soon!

Owner's Response: Hi Bill, Thanks for such a great review.... I wish we had been able to provide you with a better stay, but Mother Nature had other plans evidently. Thank you for being such troopers.. It was a pleasure meeting both you and your brother and welcoming you into our little band of Colony Cove - Maria refugees, lol We certainly will have stories to tell ! Hope to see you both on island again....and NO hurricanes next time ! Thanks again, Earl

Great family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Toe's in the Sand. Great title, that says it all. Place is right on the beach. Large family room Kitchen combo, overlooking the ocean. Waking up every morning and seeing the ocean, Amazing. Bedrooms on the back side of condo are very spacious. The kids loved snorkeling the man made tire reef. We will rent again.

Paradise at it's best

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at Colony Cove and we had a great time. We were within an easy drive to almost everything that we needed. The snorkeling just off the beach was great. The tire reef had thousands of fish each time we went out. The highlight was the school of tarpon that was swimming around us. They were a school of 3 to 4 ft long about 10 in total. Also saw too many different fish to name them all. The scuba diving at Cane Bay was also great. It is an easy do it yourself dive from the beach and the coral was spectacular. It was about a 15 minute drive to get there. The unit we were in was ground floor and steps from the ocean. It was also very close to the pool. The restaurants within walking distance had very good food. I was concerned when I found out the only air conditioning was in the bed rooms but with the breeze that was always blowing off the ocean it was not bad at all. The unit was also stocked with all the things we needed to cook when we wanted. I hate to write a review without pointing out something that was wrong. Even paradise has its flaws. The things that I noticed I consider very minor and per say nit picking. I noticed one spot of pealing paint in the one bathroom and the one commode was a little wobbly. The only other thing I could say was that the front door screen was missing but I was told that it was in the process of being replaced by the association. None of these complaints would keep me from highly recommending this unit to anyone for their vacation needs and I am looking forward to going back as soon as I can. It had something for everyone. We had our own equipment but if you did not the owner had snorkel gear there for us to use. This was also a gated complex so I always felt very safe when we were there. Most days we had the beach and the pool to ourselves. You will not be disappointed if you pick this for your vacation.

Owner's Response: Good morning, Thanks so much for the nice review. We're glad that you stayed with us at Toe's in the Sand and had such a great time in Paradise ! We noticed the paint peeling after you left...evidently a little mishap upstairs caused some water leakage into our unit...that has been addressed now....we also have a brand new door out front...the salt air wreaks havoc on those and the Association replaces those as needed....we're thankful that Colony Cove is so prompt with their exterior maintenance. Thanks again for staying with us and we hope to see you again at Colony Cove !

Perfect Location, Could Use a Little Deep Cleaning

  • 4 of 5

The location and the resort are PERFECT!! This place boasts amazing views, beach access, and a fabulous pool. The size of the apartment is great. We were 4 adults and a child and never felt cramped. Earl is a lovely host and even brought me a vacuum so I could clean all the sand we tracked in!

My only complaints are:

1. I wish there was a door between the master bedroom and its bathroom for privacy.

2. The right hand door to the washer and dryer fell off pretty much every time we opened them. I have the same doors at home and adjusted the height at the bottom and may have fixed it. But, because it is warped at the bottom, it is likely to continue coming off.

3. I feel the apartment could use a "deep cleaning" When we arrived, the floors were spotless and all the towels, bedding, etc were fresh and clean. The bathrooms were also clean. Things like the baseboards/door trim, the side of the fridge, and the tracks for the sliding doors to the back patio looked like they haven't been cleaned in quite some time. Additionally, the drawer beneath the oven was very dirty inside.

If you aren't a clean freak like me, these things probably won't bother you and you should book this place! And none of this ruined our trip. We LOVED everything about St Croix!!

Owner's Response: Hi Lindsay, Thanks so much for staying with us at Toe's in the Sand. We're so glad you had a great were wonderful guests and we hope to see you again ! The bifolds to the laundry area have been a constant problem...the wind kept pulling them've seen how breezy it gets in there...wonderful for staying cool but hard on those doors, lol. We just replaced those doors with sliding panels that secure at the bottom, so problem solved. We're also going to be painting all the baseboards soon. I had a small break in occupancy after you left and had the opportunity clean the tracks and acid wash the gallery tiles so everything out there is looking fresh. Ill take a look at that fridge side and oven drawer...thanks for pointing those out. Again, thanks for staying and please come see us again on your next St Croix vacation ! Earl

Wonderful Condo with Near Private Beaches

  • 5 of 5

This Condo was Great! It was spacious and well located within the gated community. Although there were a few other condominium complexes around us, we had private beaches almost the entire time. The view was amazing and we had so much fun snorkeling and swimming out in the water. The location was centralized to everything we needed to do as people who used to live on the island and wanted to mingle with the locals. It was very easy to get around and even though we had a rental car, we could have easily walked to most of the major attractions or caught a taxi or the island VItran. I captured lots of amazing photos and have shared them with friends and family. We will be back again next year and I would highly recommend this condo to anyone planning a stay in St. Croix. Earl was a great guy as well and one of his neighbors Don even gave us a ride to the airport just because the residence of Colony Cove are nice, laid back people.
