We determine the quantum phase diagram of a two-dimensional bosonic t-J(z) model as a function of the lattice anisotropy gamma, using a quantum Monte Carlo loop algorithm. We show analytically that the low-energy sectors of the bosonic and the fermionic t-J(z) models become equivalent in the limit of small gamma. In this limit, the ground state represents a static stripe phase characterized by a nonzero value of a topological order parameter. This phase remains up to intermediate values of gamma, where there is a quantum phase transition to a phase-segregated state or a homogeneous superfluid with dynamic stripe fluctuations depending on the ratio J(z)/t.
