  • Love, love, love!

    "My husband and I stayed in this unit for a week in February 2014. It would certainly be spacious enough for another couple or kids as we had more than enough room to ourselves. We've stayed in many oceanfront/beachfront type condos and hotels and we've never been as close to the lapping water of the ocean as this. It's quite unbelievable! We enjoyed the gallery (outdoor seating area) the most and spent every morning and evening there. It's very private to other guests both in nearby condos or on the beach. We had the beach and all the beach lounge chairs to ourselves almost every day. It's a very quiet place (which is what we were looking for). We didn't use the pool at all but it looked clean and very quiet as well. The beds were comfortable (and we're furniture people who are picky) as well as the outdoor seating! It was nice to relax at the end of a long day and watch TV with American channels. I had excellent communication with the owner and the caretaker in the island. I recommend renting a car and exploring the island and all the unique restaurants. The condo's location is also very desirable on the island as it's a 4 minute drive to Christiansted shops and boardwalk restaurants and close to a beautiful drive to Cane Bay and their restaurants. It was a centralized place where you could get to many different places from. A grocery store is very close as well. The condo was clean and well cared for and I would definitely return and recommend it!"

  • Perfect!

    "Smugglers was the perfect house for anyone wanting to enjoy this island! Being on the east end was excellent because after exploring you could retreat to the quiet oasis and enjoy a swim. At first it seemed a little far but we ended up loving that it was private with a private beach... The view is spectacular from anywhere in the home. I found the house to be the highlight of our vacation. The set up of the home was ideal to include the landscaping, location, bedrooms, pool, deck, outside music, air conditioning for sleeping, all the extras (games) & on & on. We truly found relaxation on this trip because of that awesome view and lovely home! Thank you to the owners, well done...."

  • 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."

  • Great house.

    "House is amazing. Has everything you need, even emergency generator. Great location. Secluded in rain forest, with beautiful view to ocean. You could dive pretty much from your front yard, and it is great dive sites. We went as two couples and single guy and didn't want to leave. Love this spot. Owners are take care of any inconvenience, even if it is not their fault. You get more than you pay for. Will recommend to any one i know. Thank you guys for making this house warm and welcome for the total strangers :)"
