About the owner: Dr. Evans is a native Cruzan but has lived in Ohio for the last 30 years. We have been visiting St Croix every year and finally found the ideal retirement getaway.
Why the Owner Chose Gentle Winds: C-1 was completely refurbished just two years ago and has a lovely cheerful tropical decor. Gentle Winds is ideally situated in a secure gated community on one of the nicest beaches on one of the loveliest areas of the island, the beautiful North Shore
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: C-1 is special because it is an end unit with a garden room which gives it an expansive feel. It also has a little patio as well as a screened porch (known as a 'gallery' locally) accessible from the living room and the master bedroom. With only nine buildings and a total of 64 units, there is a neighborly atmosphere and every one is friendly yet there is a sense of privacy.
