St Croix, USVI
Review: My wife and I celebrated our 30 year wedding anniversaryon St Croix and stayed at Parrot;s Hope Condo at Colony Cove. We have lived on St Croix for a few years and have returned countless times for long and short stints since 2002. We bouth count Parrot's Hope Condo as a place we will want to stay again in the future. Plus I might add the staff at the condo as well as the on site management and others are very accomodating. Stayed: March 2015
Review:My wife, two friends and myself stayed here for a week in May. It's the first time we were in St. Croix and the first time we used VRBO. The entire process was as easy and smooth as possible. Our emails were answered at times within hours of being sent. Joyce sent very helpful info and tips for us as well as directions to condo from airport. We had no problems finding the condo which turned out to be nicer, I thought, than the pictures showed. The staff was very friendly and helpful even cutting down a coconut and opening it for us!! The condo is centrally located so you could explore the island in either direction easily. Many good places to eat, but we had most meals right next door at The Golden Rail Pub and Grill. The owner was fabulous and opened the day we arrived. She had a previous place in town but moved to condo next door for more room. I recommend breakfast. lunch, and dinner. It's a casual atmosphere and the food is good and reasonably priced. Great entertainment on week-ends as well. Washer and dryer was very handy to have and allowed us to pack less. Our whole vacation was great and I highly recommend 5 O'clock Somewhere for your vacation!!!! Stayed: May 2015
Review: My husband and I visited Parrot's Hope condo in October. It was a lovley condo and close to the pool and the ocean. It is located close to the main town of Christiansted and it was very easy to get around. We rented a car and after the first day or two we got comfortable driving on the left side of the road. We took a tour of Cruzan Rum distillery and we went to the Casino on the east side of the island. We visited some of the restaurants that were suggested and we found we loved Blues Barbecue. It is a fun place with great food. It has a bar with tables outside and live music some nights. We also liked "EAT" at Cane Bay. The food was very good and the beach is big. The view from the restaurant is beautiful. We had a great time and will come back again. Stayed: October 2015.
REVIEW: This was our first time to St Croix and it is our favorite island we have visted so far. Gorgeous beaches that not too crowded (in fact there were often no more then 10 people on any beach we visited). The people were wonderful, every meal was fabulous and it is and easy island to drive around and feel comfortable. Colony Cove was a lovely place to stay in - quiet and a good location to anywhere on the island. The beach was great, we were often the only ones on it! Everyone from the staff to other guests were friendly and helpful. The unit was great with a nice view of the ocean from the balcony as well as nice Caribbean breezes. The condo has all the basics you need and Joyce and David are extremely helpful and reliable to answer any questions you may have upon arriving. We were looking forward to snorkleing from the beach . Once you get past the seagrass there is a nice artificial reef with sealife however the current could be strong for beginners. There are other great snorkeling beaches all around the island that would be easier for beginners. Cane Bay is amazing and check out Rowdy Joes nearby for food plus Dorche Beach south of Fredricksted is gorgeous with calm waters. We recommend getting a car to be able to explore the island. You do drive on the left and the people are calm and easy spirited so driving was no stress. Colony Cove is a few minutes from a ton of great restaurants and beaches. We found the island very quiet and not many people around when we were there. thius could be due to the time of year early January. Everything is beautiful and it was perfect for me and my boyfriend. I have nothing but fabulous things to say about the island and the condo. We'd love to rent this unit again if we are lucky enough to make our way back. Stayed: January 2015
Review: A week in Paradise! My husband and I spent a week in St Croix. The condo was fabulous! It was very well decorated and had everything we needed. We had a great view of the ocean from the balcony and our unit was located very close to the pool. The condo appeared to be freshly painted and was very clean. Colony Cove is conveniently located and close to shopping and downtown Christiansted. There is a really good restaurant just steps down the beach. My husband and I will definitely return! STAYED: October 2014
