"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."Guest: Laura M. Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: March 19, 2014View listing
"This was our second time renting this villa and were extremely happy with the accommodations on both trips, so clean and comfortable it felt like home. As stated in other reviews, the owner is just great to work with, no need to worry about a thing, he is helpful throughout. The Reef is such a unique condo complex, beautifully set in a hillside with each unit being very private. It is also very quiet and safe. To me, this is an ideal vacation spot and this villa has the absolute BEST VIEWS!!"Guest: Judy M. Date of Stay: February 2014 Review Submitted: March 7, 2014View listing
"Start with an excellent greeting at the airport, add a well decorated and well equipped condo, a comfortable bed and a beautiful sea view and you have perfection. The west end of the island is easy to drive around and a great starting point for exploring the entire island. Good food and fun bars are plentiful in Frederiksted and the surrounding area - breakfast at Polly's is a great way to start the day. The condo has everything that a person could ask for and special touches like coffee to get you started the next morning. The people of St Croix will always have a special place in our heart - as will this condo!"Guest: Anonymous Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: May 7, 2014View listing
"The one-bedroom was extremely clean, there were plenty of kitchen supplies, it is centrally located on the island, and the patio overlooked the ocean. There is a pool/hot tub - but we were so enamored with exploring the numerous beaches, we never used it! Our favorites on the island included ocean kayaking from the Tamarind Resort (1/2 day rental is $30 for single, $40 for double kayak) - we were able to kayak out to a deserted island and along several remote beaches. We also paddleboarded off of Rainbow Beach and hiked to the tide pools. We really enjoyed going during low season, because we had the majority of the beaches all to ourselves!"Guest: Rykaard Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: May 17, 2014View listing
