About Sharon Early
We purchased our home in St. Croix in 2002 and started living the dream in May of 2005. Intending to live the retired life after a 20 year career in the Nuclear Power industry, I gradually transitioned back to the working world. I started as a part-time assistant at Coldwell Banker St. Croix Realty and I have been a full time Agent since 2007 specializing in Property Management and Vacation Rentals. Whether you are looking for the perfect vacation in paradise or you're ready to make your move, I can assist you with fulfilling your dream. Originally from Virginia, I graduated from Christopher Newport University with a degree in Fine Arts. When not working, I enjoy gardening and have been a volunteer at the St. George Botanical Gardens since arriving on island. Other interests are sculpting, snorkeling, photography, and the never-ending home renovation projects. My energy and attention to detail enable me to do whatever is necessary to ensure the expectations of both the property owner and the vacationer are always exceeded.
Why Sharon Early chose Estate Salt River
Gentle Winds is one of the most beautiful condo communities on St. Croix and I am fortunate to have been managing and vacation renting Gentle Winds Island Breeze for the owners since 2014.

Beautiful view and well-equipped
We loved our stay in J2; the interior design was fresh, the kitchen was well-equipped with new pots and pans, and extra touches like yoga mats and tons of beach towels added to our enjoyment of the condo. The pool and beach were beautiful and just a short walk from our door. Next time I want to bring my husband and kids back because the unit is perfect for a family with privacy upstairs and plenty of bathrooms for everyone.
Couldn't Have Asked For Better
We were very happy that Gentle Winds J2 was our home base for our week in St. Croix. It's central location to both Christiansted and Frederiksted was very convenient.
We were pleasantly surprised that each bedroom had a private bath. Our party of two families included 4 adults and 4 children. There were plenty of towels, both for indoor use and for the pool/beach. The wifi worked great, and the kitchen had all the appliances and utensils you might ever need. The view of the pool and beach were great and we enjoyed them both from the screened in porch and the upper level balcony as well.
Speaking of, the pool was well kept, and had a nice outdoor shower for cleaning up. The beach had plenty of lounge chairs and palapas for shade. Sheila's beach shack was open limited hours, but was an added bonus when it was open. We also took advantage of the games at the community center and the basketball court.
Sharon was great to work with and even offered to meet us at the airport when we arrived. This was exactly the type of experience you hope all VRBO's would give. Can't wait to stay there again on a future visit!
Glad you enjoyed your stay with your family Elizabeth. We hope to have you back on St. Croix again soon.
Great Location and Condo
We rented a condominium at Gentle Winds based on Trip Adviser reviews and booked through VRBO. Very easy to work with Sharon Early who manages Unit J2. Grounds are impeccable. Condo was very well appointed and comfortable.
We rented a car and purchased a used Garmin GPS with Caribbean maps off of eBay prior to the trip for 50.00. (Don't leave in your car...always take it with you. Never lock your rental.) We explored St. Croix with ease from Gentle Winds location which is minutes from Cane Bay and Christiansted.
We bought a weeks worth of groceries at Plaza Grocery store for 240.00 (including alcohol and mixers). Two meals out for two people cost us 175.00 so you can see how eating out in the tourists areas can add up.
We love St. Croix and met many friendly locals. We had heard rumors on Trip Adviser about the bad crime but we felt extremely safe. We did not venture out much at night and did most our in-town excursions in the mornings. Our view of the beach and ocean on the screened in porch at J2 unit gave us no reason to do anything but relax and enjoy the view.
Best activities that we enjoyed:
Hike Issacs and Jack Bay
Cruzan Cowgirls Horseback riding
Hike Sugarloaf Hill to the Radio Telescope
Cramers Park East End
Drive through the rainforest on Mahogany Rd (Do not stop at Mt. Pellier Domino Club)
Morning in Fredricksted (town, shopping, fort, beautiful beach, pier)
Morning in Christiansted (town, shopping, fort, boardwalk, view of Hotel on the Cay)
So glad you enjoyed your stay Michael. You did a few treks that I have not done so I will add them to my list.
Looking forward to your return!
we had a terrific time. Unit was perfect size for our family.
Glad you and your family enjoyed your stay and hope to see you back at Gentle Winds J2.
Perfect location for a full family reunion.
Our family is spread across the eastern seaboard, including New York, Suffolk, Virginia, and Charlotte, NC. This was the first time we had all been together in a couple of years. Great amenities, beautiful landscaping, wonderful beach, and quite close to Christensted activities. We had a great time.
Awesome spot, 100% recommend!
Went for a long weekend, had an amazing time. This is the perfect spot to go and relax that has everything you could possibly want. You can see the beach right from the room, there is an awesome pool open all night with a view of the beach, plenty of activities for kids and people of all ages. The condo was extremely clean, great AC and Wifi/cable. Kitchen was perfect, we bought groceries and cooked most of our meals. There is a grill by the pool that would be excellent to have a family barbecue at. All in all great place to stay.
