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.

Nice little place to stay on St. Croix

  • 4 of 5

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.

Take us back <3

  • 5 of 5

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.

A little bit of paradise.

  • 5 of 5

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

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.

Owner's Response: 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.

Colony Cove was the perfect spot on St. Croix!

  • 5 of 5

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)

A place to call home on vacation

  • 4 of 5

It was so nice to be on vacation but still have a place to come "home" to at night. Don and Liz and have done an excellent job of making their condo a comfy, modern Cruzan haven.

They recently redid the secondary bath with all modern touches. A/C is a commodity on the island but both bedrooms have window units and ceiling fans to help circulate the cool air; this was probably the best part after a hot day of sight seeing.

Our daughter enjoyed the large screen TV at night in the living room and definitely consumed her share of bandwidth on the free wifi.

Will definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying at our condo. We were very happy to be able to meet you and your family, just as you headed out for your last family visit on the island! Glad we were able to meet your needs for a visit back home.
