  • Blue Horizon - Great Choice

    "My husband and I spent a week at Blue Horizon in Cotton Valley on St. Croix in May 2014. We picked this house rental out of several for the view and affordable price and were not disappointed! The view was breathtaking and the colors of the water changed every day depending on the time of day and weather. There was a constant breeze so we left the windows open instead of running the AC. We spent a lot of time on the pool deck and in the pool and hammock. We know there were houses close-by but you could not tell due to foliage or they were on other hillsides. The house itself was nice and in great shape. It is not luxurious but the high ceilings and tons of windows to look out at the awesome view made us feel like we were living in luxury! Landscaping all around the house was tropical and very pretty. The owner was very responsive to emails and phone calls asking questions and getting deposits/payments made via Paypal. The very helpful Property Manager, Lou, met us at the airport and we followed him through The Buccaneer Resort and then to the house. The house is not far from The Buccaneer Resort (their Mermaid Beach was our favorite on the island) had the best snorkeling, nicest water, and cleanest beach. As others have mentioned, it is great that there are beach towels, beach chairs, music, movies, and a ton of other things other people have left so look around before going shopping. We thought Food Fair was the best grocery store, but if you need something quick, Ziggy's Island Market is close-by on 82. Ziggy's also sells cooked food and fuel. Downtown was about 15 minutes away and we thought the restaurant You Are Here had excellent pizza and Fort Christan Brew Pub had the best blackened mahi sandwich. I would recommend downloading Navigon before your trip so you can easily get around the island. Staying at this hillside rental was definitely the best choice we could make for a perfect vacation! We look forward to returning there someday."

  • 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 :)"

  • Relaxing getaway

    "great place to stay ,great snorkling just out front on the tire reef,not crowed when we were there and love having laundry there especially with kids. The condo has towels and linnens,kitchen has cooking vessels,utensils all you need. The grill by the pool is kept clean by staff. The pool and garden area are clean and a great spot to relax after a day of sightseeing. There is much history here as well as activities of all kinds. For restaurants we liked Tavern,Angry Nates,LaRaine chicken shack(very affordable).good pizza from You are here. The best cosmos from Comanche in Hotel St.Croix."

  • 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."
