  • Fantastic Place

    "My over-riding impression upon arriving at Sugar Bay House is that it is in a perfect spot, with a magnificent view all around it and that the accommodations are really relaxing and comfortable. So let's deconstruct that sentence. Firstly - The perfect spot. Sugar Bay House is situated on the top of a small hill overlooking Salt River Bay on the North Shore. We drove around this wonderful island and we thought that the Salt River area was the most interesting, beautiful and quiet place upon the island. There are a few houses nearby, so it's quiet. The Salt River area, has an interesting little Marina, through which I walked nearly every day. There are interesting boats and people there and I ended up getting to know of few of them a little. Its an easy walk down the hill from the house to the little beach or Marina, but a little more effort is needed to get back up again, but it's worth it. The nearby beach was good for swimming and lazing. Everywhere you look around the house from the terrace and during the walk down to the beach is full of colorful flowers growing on bushes everywhere. It's really easy to get around St. Croix to visit all the great beaches which are never far away. Most had a beach bar on them, white sand and clear turquoise water. Some of the roads on the island are a little rough though, so you might want to rent an SUV. We didn't, we had a small fiesta which was fine but sometimes not quite fit for purpose, especially around the rain forest. So now to the second point - the view. I spent so much time sitting on a bench under a covered table at the corner of the deck just looking at the view; it's stunning and it's interesting. I watched the boats coming to and fro and even 2 getting wrecked in a squall one weekend. You can see for miles in many directions. Sea planes flew over head, birds dropped by for a chat and even an iguana dropped by to bury some of her eggs. I was there everyday for many hours, during the mornings, days and especially at night - all right I couldn't see much then , but still loved it. There was always a gentle breeze blowing by, that was cooling on a hot day, but never cold.I think it's sitting at that table that I miss most as I look back to those heavenly two weeks there. The Pool was great and actually deep enough to dive in and long enough to swim lengths. Now the third point - the comfortable house. To be honest, I wasn't in the house too much but when I was, I was asleep in a comfortable bed with all th"

  • Excellent visit!

    "Stayed in this condo for a week in May. Outstanding location and extremely safe. My wife walked to town while I went scuba diving. Convenient to downtown and has a great bar/restaurant right around the corner. All the conveniences for a marvelous vacation. Nicely furnished and all appliances worked! Owner was highly responsive to inquiries. Great pool! The description of the condo provided was accurate and helpful. Have been to St. Croix several times. This was the best for the price. Highly recommended and will rent again whenever I return."

  • The property is clean, bright and has everything you might think you need for your vacation.

    "We came to St. Croix for a wedding and might not have ever visited the island otherwise. I also used VRBO to book the unit, which was also my first time using. The property looks exactly like the pictures. Our stay there was very quiet and peaceful - we loved that we could relax and enjoy the water and the sun right outside the condo. The condo is well cared for, no bugs and very clean. We stayed in and cooked for most of our trip and the only suggestion I have is a fan in the kitchen area to circulate while cooking. It was very humid for our trip, came right as hurricane Matthew just passed through the Bahamas, but the ocean breeze was lovely and we kept the back door and front door open until we went to bed. The condo is a great location and very secure. We spent many nights outside and the security attendant makes regular walks. The condos are also in a gated community with code only access. You definitely can't go wrong with staying at Colony Cove and if I ever come back I will book this condo again. The owners are very nice and made sure our stay was comfortable. Sincerely, Kim C."

  • business trip

    "I was in St Croix to purchase a condo so the views were not important to me. This condo is very nice and has basically everything you need. The area is very clean. You must keep the ac on at night as the unit is in the kitchen and far from the bedroom. You must have a car as there is only one restaurant in walking distance."
