  • Relaxing anniversary trip

    "We picked the Island Oasis based on the reviews and it lived up to it's name. The pictures and description are accurate but no where near as nice as once you experience Pelican Cove and Island Oasis. Sept is considered "off-season" and we pretty much had the area to ourselves. Cynthia's details are seen everywhere, from the airport driving instructions to everything that is in the condo, you can tell that they care that everyone has an excellent time. St Croix is a beautiful island that has a laid back, non-tourist feel to it. I would recommend renting a car and exploring the island, the drives are very scenic. The maps that you get at the rental car counter are excellent and very detailed. The snorkeling all over the island is excellent and you need to do a Buck Island trip to experience the reef. The beaches all over the island are beautiful and we rarely saw many people when we were at them, including the beach a few feet from the condo. The grocery stores are good (we felt The Plaza was best), but the food is more expensive on the island - including the restaurants. It made more sense for us to spend the days out exploring and make breakfast and dinner at the condo, which has everything to cook with. Do not be afraid to go to places or to say "Hi" to the extremely friendly people who call St Croix their home. There is so much to do on the island, but everything has a very relaxed setting. Definitely spend the $5 for the Cruzan Rum plant tour, if you can find it (no signs, turn south on W. Airport Rd). We can not thank Cynthia enough for providing a condo that immediately made us feel at home! We look forward to returning and bringing friends with us to share the experience."

  • Fantastic Stay

    "The stay here was amazing. From the view to the amenities to the helpfulness of the owners, it was truly a wonderful experience. The amazing view and sound of the ocean was incomparable. When we got home, our house sounded too quiet because there was no sound of the waves crashing on the shore. The condo is close and convenient to everything and the property itself is maintained well, quiet and relaxing. The balcony is large and you could look out over the water for hours. The inside of the unit is very comfortable, decorated nicely and has all the comforts of home. There is a restaurant within walking distance at the Palms at Pelican Cove (that has a theme most nights, including Caribbean night on Thursdays) and there are many other places to eat, shop and explore a short car ride away. The pool area was very nice and quiet too and the beach was great to sit at and look out at the water. The owners provided a lot of information and helpful tips to enjoy beautiful St. Croix. Nothing is far away from this location. It is a great place to stay on a very special island."

  • 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."

  • perfect in every way

    "My boyfriend and I were looking for a short getaway from our busy lives. We found this villa last minute and worked with Anne to sercure the villa. She was wonderful to work with and set up a greeter to meet us at the airport and escort us. From the moment we arrived, we were blown away by the privacy, beauty and attention to detail. I can't say enough about the accommodations and the beautiful furnishings. The views and breezes are amazing. We were there at one of the hottest months of the year and only used the ac in the bedroom at night to cool our bodies from full days of playing in the sun. The location is great. Be sure to rent a car so you an explore the island!! We ate in almost every night and the kitchen is so well stocked with everything you could possibly need. My boyfriend says the grill is the nicest he has ever cooked on. Every need we had was met and we loved the place so much, we called it our dream home!!! Perfect for a couple or two as bedrooms and bathrooms are completely independent of each other. The pool is amazing and the view at night are stunning!!! Thank you Anne and Charles for all your hard work !!!! We will be back!!!!!!!"
