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!
Colony Cove was the perfect spot on St. Croix!
We had an absolutely marvelous and memorable vacation in St. Croix. It all started with how easy it was to work with Liz, the condo owner. She was very communicative prior to our arrival: answered all of our questions, provided info in a timely manner, and even sent us tons of info about how to get around the island, recommendations for beaches and restaurants, and the goings-on guide for the week we were there (April 10 - 15, 2016). The condo was clean and very comfortable. It was such a treat to wake in the morning, brew a pot of coffee and head down to the Caribbean to enjoy coffee and sea breezes. There is also a beautiful pool in the complex. There is a human made tire reef just off the beach and it was the perfect place for us first time snorkelers to start. You can also walk the beach in the other direction to where some old pilings stick out of the water and snorkel. We saw a ray! It is super easy to get from Colony Cove to anywhere on the Island. Liz was staying at Colony Cove while we were there so we got to chat and she checked with us to make sure all was well. We would go back in heartbeat! (p.s. you can borrow snorkeling gear and beach towels from the condo "front office" - this is the only thing we didn't know in advance so we packed snorkel gear)
Thank you so much for the kind words. It was so nice to be able to meet you and your family. We are always happy when our guests enjoy the island as much as we do! Hope you are able to come back again.
