Property description

Gentle Winds is a private, gated community located on the beautiful North Shore of St Croix. This 65 unit, 66 acre community is nestled between the mountains of St Croix and the turquoise Caribbean Sea. This location not only provides a peaceful setting with a backdrop of the best nature has to offer, but also between 5 and 15 minutes away you have a large variety of restaurants, diving, fishing, 2 world class golf courses, kayaking, horseback riding, rainforest, tidepools, hiking, stand-up paddleboarding, windsurfing, a casino, shopping, and many more opportunities to explore all that the island has to offer.

As you enter the half-mile majestic, palm tree lined entrance to Gentle Winds, you will be greeted with a lush tropical landscape. The beachfront has a beautiful sandy beach with palms, and plenty of lounge chairs to work on your tan. If you have had too much sun, there are palm covered palapas and palm trees to park your chair under for shade. The beach has a roped off sandy bottom perfect for swimming and is protected by a coral reef that provides for fantastic snorkeling.

The newly renovated saltwater swimming pool is located beachfront, steps from the sand. There are also many lounge chairs and tables poolside, perfect for enjoying lunch and a tropical drink from the onsite beach shack. This popular gathering place, which is open most days and every day in the high season, serves burgers, fish, wraps, fries, salads, and made to order drinks along with daily specials.

If sports is on your agenda, Gentle Winds has many choices available to its guests without charge. Take your pick between 2 tennis courts, basketball, shuffleboard, 4 chipping greens, and indoor ping-pong. The clubhouse offers a reading library, restrooms, and seating for relaxing, socializing, and dining.

The property is beautifully maintained by full time staff and onsite manager, and all condominiums are privately owned. There are nine three story buildings and ours is located beachfront. Our condo is on 2 levels, with a spiral staircase leading to the master suite and its king size bed. The second level also has a loft and 2 rooftop patios with lounge chairs for sunning and stargazing. The main floor has a bedroom with 2 twin size beds, and the third bedroom has a queen size bed. The full kitchen has all you need to prepare meals, with a dining table, and opens to a living room with a cathedral ceiling. The screened lanai with patio furniture allows for fresh air dining and a tremendous view of the azure sea. Fall asleep to the sound of the gently breaking waves, and have breakfast while enjoying the beautiful view of the sea. Our condo also has cable TV, high speed internet, a washer and dryer in the unit, and central AC, if you need it. The excellent cross breeze and 4 ceiling fans will keep you cool at night and you may find you don't need the AC. The included WiFi can be used throughout the property, including the pool area and beach.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Two couples own this property and each of us owns our own unit as well. We have been coming to this property for ten years and are here quite frequently. We are involved in the homeowner's association and have participated in the updating of the complex. All of us have traveled extensively throughout the world, yet St. Croix is our choice for our second homes.

Why the Owner Chose Gentle Winds:
We chose this property for its privacy, beach, and pool. Its location on St Croix's North Shore sets it apart. You are surrounded by a national park, private homes, and open space. Replicating this property would be very difficult. The restaurants on St Croix are superb, and the island is a great place for vacationing with our children and grandchildren.
