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 USVI/St. Croix

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!

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.

Perfect location that is steps to the water

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in St. Croix! Thanks to the owners of this beautiful condo for providing everything we needed for our daily adventures(snorkeling equipment, beach chairs/towels, cooler and even a bottle of rum)

We felt very safe in the colony cove gated community and was a super quick drive to the boardwalk. The view from this condo is gorgeous!

We'd love to have you back and hope you will accept our offer of 10% off your next stay with us. Thanks again, ! Earl

Neat and Tidy - well furnished

  • 3 of 5

We had a nice time at the condo. It was well equipped, clean, and good A/C in the bedrooms. It was very affordable and was a good place to take our 2 high school aged kids. Earl was so great to take care of any little thing we needed and was very prompt if we had to reach out to him. Our ONLY complaint was the sand was so rough and not at all like the sand of the beaches of the Caribbean that we are used to. That was disappointing since we thought we would be able to walk out the back door and be on a nice beach. We rented a car and visited many other beaches so it was not that big of a deal, just not what we expected. This is an affordable place in a good location - I would recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Hi Nancy, Thanks so much for he nice review and the good feedback. We're so glad you had a nice time on St Croix and at Toe's in the Sand. Thank you for pointing out the sand quality. I've been trying to get Colony Cove to budget for a truck load of sand this year. We have not gotten one in awhile and it has washed down into the sea. Thanks for staying with us and we hope to see you again. Please accept our offer of 10 % off your next stay with us .. Thanks ! Earl

Fabulous customer service!!!!!

  • 4 of 5

The condo could use some updating for my personal taste. However, the owner is fair, honest and gives impeccable customer service!! When we arrived on this little island, only to find our condo was 'double booked' (by another owner NOT this one!), Earl saved the day by opening his condo up to us. Once we were settled in, he suggested some great points of interest around the island for us to tour! We had an A/c go out in one of the bedrooms and Earl had it replaced within hours of our notifying him. The condo is centrally located 5 minutes from Christiansted and about 20 minutes to Fredericksted. You will be staying right on the water and we enjoyed a beautiful sunrise over Buck Island every morning with our coffee and there's a constant breeze blowing. Snorkel out your back door to find conch and see lots of fish. Enjoy great star gazing right out your back patio at night. The complex is gated with hands-on guards who walk the grounds and get to know the residents/renters. Very secure as we left our trunk wide open over night with not a thing disturbed.

Owner's Response: Hi Jennifer, Thanks so much for the kind words...you covered pretty much all the bases! It was great having your group stay with us and I'm so happy that we were able to rescue your vacation...I hope we managed to make it a pleasurable and memorable one. I'm happy to report that I just met with my contractor yesterday and we will be blocking the condo off for renovations..either Sept or Oct of 2016.. So for winter 2016/2017 we will be showing off new kitchen cabinets, new tile floor and completely renovated bathrooms. Hope to see you again in the future ! Thanks Earl

Great value and amazing views

  • 4 of 5

The condos view and location were great. Went on off season and we had the beach and pool to ourselves!! The condos are gated with security guard. The condo had everything you need, but does need a little tlc. Would recommend this condo for the million dollar views. If you are looking for a picture perfect place inside and out, you probably need to go to the buccaneer and pay 4 times as much as this condo. So to sum it up for the price, view, location, and old island feel i would recomend toes in the sand.

Owner's Response: Hi Shanda, Thanks so much for the nice review... We're so glad you had a great time and got to enjoy the amazing views from this condo. It truly is a great location. We're happy to let everyone know that we are shutting down for a couple weeks this fall to remodel the bathrooms and upgrade the kitchen area. So we hope to have a great new look for 2017! Thanks for staying with us and please come see us again.. Earl
