  • 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!"

  • on the beach

    "Watch the sunrise over Buck Island and the sea. Very comfortable condo and a great convenient location. Easy to get to Christiansted and the better restaurants and to beaches at both the east and west end. Has a very large nice pool- great for kids. Right on the beach - enjoy your morning coffee overlooking the ocean. First floor provides easy access will return"

  • Unparalleled Views and Ocean Breeze

    "An amazing home on the cliffs overlooking the ocean with full 180 degree views of the ocean and bay. The cool ocean breeze racing up the side of the cliff is wonderful and keeps you cool even in the hottest parts of the day. We left the doors open in the main house and in each of the bedrooms. If you want, you can even turn on an A/C (individual ones in each room). What a wonderful rental home!!!"

St. Croix Villa Rentals Offer Undiscovered Charm

Staying in St. Croix vacation rentals, visitors are delighted to find that this island remains largely “undiscovered” by tourism. These Caribbean resorts may be quiet but they are definitely visitor-friendly. The island has some of the best opportunities for eco-tourism in the Caribbean, from exploring the island’s mountains to its coral reefs. Those staying in St. Croix villa rentals can head to the hills on horseback or kayak down the Salt River.

Caribbean Resorts Are a Diver's Delight

One thing that visitors to St. Croix villa rentals won’t be is bored. The island has enough to see and do to keep you coming back year after year. Visitors to Buck Island Reef National Monument will enjoy the fabulous nature trail across the island.

The diving here is second to none and includes "the wall," a drop-off on the north shore area. The wall runs almost the entire length of the shore and keeps divers occupied for days! No one can be bored in these Caribbean resorts.
