About Barbara Flanagan

Barbara Flanagan purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Barbara Flanagan chose Estate Salt River
I was looking for a location that was warm and sunny in the winter. I have relatives who have been happy with their condo here at Gentle Winds for the last 30 years and it seemed a natural. I have always enjoyed snorkeling and never get tired of watching fish in their natural habitat. In addition, the Gentle Winds location is private and never feels over crowded.
What makes this Condo unique
Being able to walk out on the beach whenever I feel like it is the height of luxury to me. Even in the summer, when you are in the shade at the beach with the trade winds blowing, the weather is perfect for reading and catching up on novels. With two master suites on two levels it's great for having family and friends visit.

Bright and Charming Condo and Ownee
The owner helped me out when I was in a bind and needed a place to stay on short notice. I love the condos decor with the bright colors on the walls and variety of art work. You can tell that the owner lives here part of the time and cares about the character and condition the unit is in. There is a binder filled with helpful and great information on the unit and the island. I've live in St Croix for about 9 months and she has everything in it that you need to have a relaxing and well informed vacation. Her condo is outfitted with games and some children's toys as well as a VHS player with classic children's movies from the 90s that is up in the loft area upstairs out of the way. The kitchen recently renovated and is very nicely stocked with the neccessary equipment plus some nice extras like a food processor and hand mixer. The unit gets wonderful breezes all day long no need to run the air conditioner, and with the high electricity rates I completely understand the owners request to be mindful of electrical useage. There are nicely labeled instructions and tags for where things should go, which is great for a condo rental. I love sitting in the screened in balcony looking out at the ocean at any time of the day. The pool is big and right by the ocean so you get the best of both worlds, and the owner has snorkeling equipment for the whole family. The orher condo guests and owners I've met are very nice and welcoming. A great home away from home.
I've stayed in this unit three times in the past year. Great location and unit.
The unit is well appointed with everything you would need for a beach vacation. If you prefer not to eat at restaurants this unit has every thing you can think for to prepare all your meals.
Great Place to Stay
Thank you for everything you did to make our family vacation a great success! We stayed for 10 days in Nov, 2019,
My husband and I travel to St Croix 1 to 2 times a year and we love the island and the Cane Bay area. We always stay in that area so we are close to diving and our favorite places to eat. On this trip we went with our daughter's family that included 2 grandkids ages 4/7. It is difficult finding a comfortable places for 2 families but I feel we hit the jackpot with your condo. The location (Gentle Winds), the condo floor plan and all the little extra's you provide made a big difference. The kids loved the pool and the private beach, we spent many hours at both. It was so nice to have the "Snack Shack" for quick lunch and happy hour!! The kids loved all the water toys, games and played with the doll house for hours- thank you for those extra's. Your kitchen is the most well equipped kitchen we have stayed at. Barbara was so good to work with and responded to email quickly. With our delay in PR that was very helpful.
Your Condo is well decorated, very clean, comfortable. It is now our favorite place stay on St Croix. We will be back!!!
Again thank you for everything!
We are looking forward to having you back. So glad you had a great stay and the kids could enjoy the toys and dollhouse.
The Calypso Condo was the perfect place to stay. I couldn't have been happier there.
Interior decorated with exquisite taste, we felt completely comfortable and relaxed.
Our stay couldn't have been better. Thanks so much, Roger
I'm so glad that you enjoyed our interior decor. It's nice to know that the art works are enjoyed.
Beautiful beach, lovely condo!
Very well maintained grounds, beautiful beach with nice amenities...pool, snack bar, club house, ping pong, shuffle board, golf, small library and games. Beautifully decorated Calypso condo was very clean, beds were comfortable and kitchen had every tool and appliance needed. Balconies were wonderful for morning coffee. Views were outstanding! We had the best time!
Thanks for finding time to review. I love morning coffee on the balcony also.
St Croix is world famous for Scuba diving and snorkeling. There are many tours including, horse back, jeep and mini bus. There are many museums and ecological sites and museums including beaches where the sea turtles come to lay their eggs. I would consider a day-trip to Buck Island to snorkle along an underwater trail in the national preserve a must-do activity . Boats leave twice a day from Christiansted for a full or half day trip. I would also recommend taking a kayak tour at night to see the phosphorescence in the water when it is disturbed.
