  • Escaped for a while.....

    "My family,(my husband myself, and our late teen aged children) and I have just returned from a week in St. Croix--college and high school Spring Break. We had an amazing week, the weather was wonderful and the pace of life was great! One of the very best things about being back on St. Croix was staying at Gentle Winds. The complex was very well kept, the neighbors were friendly and helpful, but not intrusive, the beach was beautiful, quiet and not crowded even once during the week, the pool and snack bar only added to the water front experience, and the gated community made us feel completely safe. I cannot think of one negative thing about Gentle Winds. We stayed in Unit D6 and were very comfortable there. The unit was as described and as pictured on the VRBO website. We found everything we expected and more. We felt like guests in a home rather than vactioners at generic resort. Everything we needed was there from the minute we arrived. I was told that the house would have staples and a few things to get us stated, and it did. It was really great to walk in, open the refrigerator and find a cold bolttle of water! Location, Location, Location....Gentle Winds is well situated on the island. It was about a 20 minute trip to Christianstead were we shopped, dined, and departed for our snorkeling trip to Buck Island. It was also just about 25 minutes to Frederickstead. We didn't have far to drive to visit the Botanical Gardens, the Cruzan Rum factory or anything else we wanted to do. It was just about perfect. As for the unit within the complex, I loved that location, too. Being on top of the hill allowed for wonderful breezes and great views. Even from the front deck at the unit, which faced away from the water, the view of the hills at night was great. Maybe my favorite place for a night cap :), if not my favorite a close second to the hammock on the beach! I had never used VRBO to rent a vacation property before. I was a bit uncertain, but working with Larry and Pat was great. Communication was clear, easy, and prompt right down to the e-mail we received after the vacation welcoming us back home and letting us know that the security deposit check was in the mail. Overall, an A+ experience!! I would reccommed VRBO to anyone who asked, and would happily and whole heartedly reccommend a week at Gentle Winds and Unit D6. Thanks Larry and Pat for your part in making our week amazing, relaxing, and better than we imagined."

  • The Way Life Should Be!

    "My family and I traveled to St Croix for a Christmas visit and found Bill's cottage to be the most fabulous place! We absolutely loved it! The first day there my son and 12 year old niece snorkeled in front of the house and discovered a sea horse and two green turtles ready to play with us! Staying at Bill's was such a treat. Everything you need to enjoy the Sun and sand is right there. Snorkel gear, kayaks, beach chairs, a cooler for the day trips, towels and even two palm trees that frame a perfect sunset or rainbow over the Caribbean! The cottage is close enough to walk to downtown Frederiksted it you want to pick up a Geko Tour, rent a Sunbug or visit Pier 69 for a taste of good home cooking. Much of the time we were content to just kick back and relax with something on the grill and a cold beverage as we listened to the surf. I would highly recommend this a the place to stay in St Croix. Thanks for making our first Christmas in the tropics fantastic!"

  • Definitely worth it, excellent price for the location, and great for a couple.

    "From the initial contact with the owner, LaVaughn, it was a pleasant experience. She treated me with all the respect and courtesy anyone can ask for. When I arrived, everything was exactly as advertised on the ad. The room was clean, the location is excellent, WiFi, cable, and all the amenities are included as promised. I felt very safe in the area, which is always important and the property is gated! Mostly everything you need is within walking distance, like bars,the boardwalk, some restaurants, etc. HOWEVER, please rent a car as soon as you get to the airport as not all the beaches and activities are in the area, and you may want to go to Frederiksted and the rest of the island's beaches. There's so much to see. Do not miss out on sightseeing as taxis are quite expensive. Another huge tip: when you arrive, make a bee line for the supermarket and get some groceries as eating out is quite expensive. Again, all the kitchen utensils and cookware are included as well. Enjoy your stay!"

  • Fun Girls Week - 3rd stay at The Reef

    "We all had a great vacation. I have stayed at the reef for the past 3 years and love it. It is clean, comfortable and the views are amazing. Was pleasantly surprised to find new ceramic top stove/oven, sink/faucet and countertops in kitchen!! The condo is perfectly positioned with a fantastic view of Buck Island and the golf course and close to the amazing pool area perched on top of the resort. At night the stars are so close you feel like you can touch them. Condo was fully stocked with food and libations upon arrival by BubblesUSVI, breakfast was most mornings at The Deep End, wonderful dinners were had at Bluewater Terrace, Duggans, Bombay Club, Castaways, Angry Nates and Maria's at Gallows Bay....best Mexican ever!! Of course "The Master" Capt Lou took us out to Buck Island for snorkeling and hanging out at the beach on Charis. Love hanging out at Ziggy (try the ROTIS...Yummy). We spent a whole day going around the whole Island sightseeing and shopping. Beach at the Divi is also good for snorkeling and sunbathing. I have already booked for two...yes two weeks in June 2015 ....am looking forward to returning to this amazing condo and "life in the left lane". Thanks Laura for sharing your piece of paradise!!"
