About Don and Liz Bartle
Don and Liz are retired and live in the Philadelphia area, where it is just too cold and wet in the winters! Will, Liz's brother, lives in Ohio, and likes to get down to St. Croix when his work schedule allows it.
Don and Liz Bartle purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Don and Liz Bartle chose Estate Golden Rock
Don and Liz have owned a condo at this complex since 2007 and spend 2 to 3 months each year enjoying the warm sun and blue water. Many family members have joined us for vacations, and we wanted to expand our ability to accommodate friends and family. This is a first floor unit, and as we all get older, no steps can be a great thing! Liz's brother, Will, has enjoyed his time in St. Croix so much, that he went in on this purchase and hopes to spend even more time at Easy Street.
What makes this Condo unique
No steps to get to the condo, plenty of space to enjoy inside, and on the patio outside. Handicap accessible shower/vanity. We own a second condo in this complex, so we can help you accommodate larger groups. We can help you plan a wedding in Paradise.

Property was in a great location, and the condo was very nice, the beach not so much
The condo was very nice... in a great location, Close to Christensted and had everything you would need. With the A/C In bedrooms, in made sleeping very comfortable and if you kept the curtains in the living room closed, it was comfortable in there to hang out as well. But the beach wasn't good at all. The seaweed is out of control, and the smell its miserable. You can't go out on the beach, and you can't get in the water, due to the seaweed which is disheartening, when you pick a place due to it being beach front, thinking you could go out and sit out and enjoy the water. But until that is cleaned up, there is no way you can. Even the pool area, which is nice, the smell just made it intolerable. We had to drive to the West end every day in order to enjoy the beach and the water. The owners Liz and Don are great though.. very accommodating and nice! While the seaweed issue isn't something they could fix.. I feel it needs to be told, before renting, if you want to be at the beach, so you know ahead of time that you will have to travel. So car rental is a must! If the beach gets cleaned up, would definitely rent this again! St Croix is a beautiful island, and it's getting back to its splendor after the hurricanes, which makes me happy! It was a soul cleansing vacation.
Thank you Liz and Don!

Thanks so much for staying at our condo. It is unfortunate when Mother Nature reminds us of her power. The Sargasso grass comes in with a vengeance around the Caribbean, and the severity and duration is unpredictable. Your visit came during a particularly bad period. So sorry about that. Glad you got to enjoy the west end, which is a favorite of ours. We are also so glad you got to see the fantastic recovery the island has made since Maria. Keep us in mind for the future!

Nice little place to stay on St. Croix
The condo and complex was a nice place to stay and great beach access. The little bar had good food and drinks. I would say here again.
Glad the trip was a success for you. Hope we can host you again in the future.
Take us back <3
Our stay at Colony Cove was perfect. We rented a car on the island which was a must so we could see everything. The drive from the condo was 5 minutes from downtown Christiansted, which has tons of stores, restaurants, and bars. It was nice having a relaxing place to return to after are long adventurous days out around the island. The grounds of the condo complex were very safe. There were also two restaurants within walking distances of the complex. We didn't want to leave but will definitely return. Don and Liz were helpful with anything we needed. Thank you.
So glad when our guests have a great visit on our beautiful island of St. Croix. We would look forward to having you stay at our condo again in the future, as we discount repeat guests!
A little bit of paradise.
My family and I have been to several caribbean islands and St Croix is by far the best island. There is so much to do. The water and beaches are beautiful and the people are so friendly. The Colony Cove condo that we stayed in was perfect. It had everything you needed for a relaxing time away. The condo was centrally located to all the sites of St Croix. Liz and Don were excellent hosts. Liz was extremely responsive to any questions I had. She gave several great recommendations of things for us to do. I highly recommend Rainbow Beach and Big Beards Adventure Tours. When we return to St. Croix, this Colony Cove condo will be our choice to stay at again.
Thanks Liz and Don
We love the beautiful island of St. Croix and the people who live there. We are always so happy when someone visits and appreciates it as we do. Glad the trip with your family was successful, please come back again!
Great condo community just north of downtown Christiansted. Older building, but had everything we needed. Location is out of town, not walkable to the boardwalk. The condo community the unit is apart of is very friendly, most people know each other and watch out for each other.The condos are part of a larger condo area with several different buildings, but all connected by the beach. Also at each end of the condo community is a restaurant and we enjoyed both. Beach is small and rocky, but pretty for walks. The unit was well laid out with bedrooms on one side and kitchen and livingroom on other so if we got early we didn't have to worry about waking our friends. Air conditioners in the bedrooms were great too. Lovely enclosed patio. Our only issue, and it's not a big deal, but there is a lot of furniture, large pieces, filling up the living room. It was crowded and hard to get around. Big chairs, big coffee table, big dining set in the middle. We were always bumping into things. It was comfy furniture, but would be something to think about if you have small kids running around. We did have an issue with one of the bathroom sinks draining slowly and only one burner on the stove worked. We mentioned this to the owners and they are working on these issues. Owners very helpful and available, if we had questions. Before our arrival, they sent us a link with all the activities and events happening on the island for our stay.
Thank you for staying at our place. We rely on feedback from our guests, as we are not on island all the time. All the stove burners have been re-wired, and a slight modification to piping took care of the slow flowing drain. Please keep us in mind for another trip to St. Croix.
