Great Tropical Beach Getaway! Make your Memories.

  • 5 of 5

Picture perfect tropical beach is just steps from the condo- pool and beach snack shack too. You won't want to leave! That turquoise blue water beckons and does not disappoint - swimming, snorkeling, sunning are all right there. And this complex is called "Gentle Winds" for a reason. Those lovely Caribbean breezes keep you delightfully cool even when the sun gets warm. I have stayed in other condos within the same complex, but this one is the best equipped. Owner has thought of everything I need- from picnic stuff for the tide pools/Buck Island to a greatly equipped kitchen, plenty of extra towels, games and books galore, spare portable lights- my group, which was multi-generational from kids to teens to adults, seniors all had a grand time. Owner also very knowledgeable on where to go/what to do for your group. I come back year after year, and have never been disappointed.

Couldn't have been a more perfect setting. Beautiful beach location. We have stayed in several Gentle Winds condos but loved this location. Beautiful view and great breeze

Condo is well equipped whether you want to cook and stay in or go out. Very comfortable furnishings. Loved the "sandy toes beach shack" for drinks and food. Many days never wanted to leave the beach!

Also loved north shore restaurants like the waves, rowdy joes and eat. Will definitely return to This gentle winds condo. Owner was informative and helpful to our family of 6. Lots of helpful recommendations

Relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have been to st croix many times but this was our first time in this condo. The unit was nicely furnished, very clean and had everything we needed. The kitchen was well appointed and it was easy to cook a full meal. Being able to walk from the condo to the pool/beach was the best part! The owner was great to work with and was very accommodating. She gave us a lot of info about the north shore.

We spent most of our time at the pool and beach. It was easy when our kids changed their minds to go from the pool to the beach, all we had to do was turn our chair. When we were hungry or thirsty, the beach shack was there with great choices and reasonable prices.

Crab alley, over by the shuffle board courts, was a great place for the kids find their own crabs to bring to the hermit crab races. That was a definite must do! We loved the restaurant "Eat" - we went there a few times. Rowdy joes is another one of our favorites. You really don't need to leave the north shore. gentle winds was a great place and we hope to return!
