Car: recommended

Gentle Winds is in a very private location on the beautiful north shore of St. Croix. Centrally located, it is a short drive to the shopping and restaurants of downtown Christiansted or the Pier and beaches of Fredericksted. The north shore itself has wonderful dining choices such as EAT at Cane Bay, Off The Wall and the Tavern at Salt River Marina which is near the historic location of Columbus' first landing on his second voyage to the new world in 1493. Unit I10 is one of the most sought after rental properties within Gentle Winds as it is an end unit, closest to the ocean with water views on all sides. You are literally steps away from the beach, a full size swimming pool, snorkeling and beach bar. Local attractions include kayak tours of Salt River or Cane Bay, day trips to Buck Island (Underwater snorkel trail and national monument), multiple scuba and snorkeling sites, off road ATV tours, jet skiing, duty free shopping, Cruzan Rum Factory tour, Botanical Gardens, historical tours of ruins, gaming at the Divi casino and a plethora of fantastic restaurants.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the condo and Gentle Winds. First of all, condo owner was very easy to deal with. She was quick to answer emails and any questions we had. That is important to me. The condo itself was nicely decorated with owner's paintings and artwork. The condo was perfect for our group of six. The Gentle Winds complex was far enough from Christiansted so we weren't in the middle of the hustle and bustle of town, but close enough to go there when needed. We also enjoyed their pool there on a daily basis. Thank you Nancy for letting us stay in your St Croix condo.

Beautiful Beach Front Condo

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a week long vacation on St Croix with our 2 teenagers. The island is beautiful, the locals are friendly and the views are amazing. The condo kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals. The rooms were exactly as described. The mattresses on the beds were too firm for us but that's personal preference. The resort itself was very lovely, pool was very refreshing, the grounds are well kept. We didn't use, but there was plenty of beach toys for the little ones, games and books available in the clubhouse. There is a small reef just off shore so we enjoyed some snorkeling. We also snorkeled at Cane Bay and took some SCUBA trips with the Cane Bay Dive shop which we can highly recommend. US cell phones work on the island with no additional charges, however there is no cell phone reception (we use AT&T) in the condo. Wifi was available at no cost, but not having access to our phone for calls, email, and GPS was inconvenient. A rental car is a must and the roads are generally not marked with lane lines nor street signs, so using the GPS was the only way to get around easily. Overall a wonderful trip.

Another Day in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I am a return visitor to Unit I-10 at Gentle Winds and can honestly say that with every visit, I fall more and more in love with this place! The Gentle Winds property itself is perfect; you can choose to take a dip in the pristine salt water pool, or sit on the gorgeous sandy beach under the shade of your own tiki hut listening to the waves crash in front of you, or maybe just have a drink and a bite at the Sandy Toes Snack Shack. While there are certainly many things to do offsite, my preference is to just stay right there at Gentle Winds -- why leave paradise? Nancy's condo unit is also excellent in every way. The location is at the end of the last building, putting it closest to the water. The combination of the sound of the waves crashing and the warm tropical breeze flowing through will guarantee you the best night's sleep you've ever had! We kept the doors/windows open and ceiling fans going during our stay and never needed the A/C. The interior decor is artistic and captures the island magic -- Nancy's spectacular paintings are displayed throughout the condo and really compliment the scheme. The condo is well equipped with everything you need from beach towels to paper supplies. The view from the screened in porch was fantastic -- we spent many a day's end watching the sun set over the water while relaxing and sipping on a cold beverage. It doesn't get much better than this! If you are considering a trip to St. Croix, I enthusiastically recommend Unit I-10 at Gentle won't regret it!

Perfect Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent condo. Very personalized by the owner. It was equipped with everything you need. Did not have to buy any necessities; i.e. toilet paper, paper towels, spices, etc. Plenty of beach towels, bath towels, washer dryer in unit. Each room had a ceiling fan. Surrounding condo property is well taken care of. Snack shack at the pool has great food and beverages. Location of condo very convenient for those who want to scuba dive as Marina right around corner. Great place!!

Paradise Revisited

  • 5 of 5

This was my third stay in this beautiful condo just steps away from the pool, beach and ocean. Spectacular views both inside and out. The condo walls are hung with this well known St. Croix Artist's paintings...takes your breath away when you first open the door and step in.

The interior decor represents the flavor of the island. Well equipped kitchen, beautiful living room, 3 lovely bedrooms and baths help makes this a home away from home. Loved having breakfast on the screened in porch overlooking the well kept grounds, pool and ocean.

The owner is a gracious hostess and ensures your stay is comfortable in every way. If your destination is St. Croix do yourself a favor and stay in this condo.

The every way!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent two weeks in this wonderful condo and cannot say enough great things about our visit!

The location is the best…close to the beach with a spectacular view. I love that you do not have to get in the car to enjoy the beach and pool. Just step out the door with your towel and relax! You can enjoy lunch and drinks at the little beach hut, and snorkel right in the ocean at the beach.

This condo owner has thought of everything! She is an artist so you feel like you are staying in a private art gallery on the island… not one of those bare beige boring condos…it is an island retreat!

She has small paintings and prints for sale available on an honor system…we loved that we could take home a remembrance of our island vacation!

Some of the things we loved about the condo that make it so special:

That warm, island feeling

Spectacular views from every room

Comfy beds (queen up, and kings below)

Amenities for renters, so many to list, include: Beach towels, cooler, beach bags, CDs and Videos and more. There is an open liquor cabinet and an assortment of spices available for use.

Would I recommend staying here? You bet, but you might have a hard time getting a reservation. We had wanted to stay in February and she was already booked for the month so we moved our vacation to March. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!
