About the property

3 BR / 3 BA condo @ Gentle Winds - white sand beachfront

Spacious and open, this three bedroom, three bath condo is just steps from the beautiful palm lined sandy beach at Gentle Winds.

Comfortably furnished with new comfy sofa and club chairs and modern dining area, the open floor plan is perfect for large families. The fully equipped kitchen opens out into the living room.

Two bedrooms are on the main level, one with queen bed and the other with two twin beds which can be converted to a king bed if desired. Two full baths complete the downstairs layout. Upstairs you’ll find the master bedroom with king bed, private ocean view patio, and en-suite bath. The cozy loft has a sofa and its own large patio.

The blue waters of the Caribbean beckon from the living room or screened porch beyond. The many amenities of Gentle Winds are yours to choose from: relax on the sandy beach, swim in the large free-form pool, or lunch at the Beach Shack. For those seeking more active diversions, there’s basketball, tennis, or golf on the four holes at Gentle Winds.

Gentle Winds is a popular and spectacular condominium community located on the North Shore of St. Croix. Entering the private, 40+ acre estate via a winding, palm-tree-lined drive, one is surrounded with lush tropical landscaping. The villas, located adjacent to the protected sanctuary of Salt River, are surrounded by the Caribbean Sea and the mountains of St. Croix's North Shore. Considered luxurious and exclusive, Gentle Winds is situated on one of the island’s most beautiful beaches and is private yet convenient to all island locations. Each unit is privately owned, well maintained and provides a tranquil view of the grounds and ever-changing sea beyond.

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 USVI/St. Croix

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.

What makes this condo unique

Considered luxurious and exclusive, Gentle Winds is situated on one of the island’s most beautiful beaches and is private yet convenient to all island locations. Each unit is privately owned, well maintained and provides a tranquil view of the grounds and ever-changing sea beyond.

Great Location and Condo

  • 5 of 5

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:

Point Udall

Hike Issacs and Jack Bay

Cruzan Cowgirls Horseback riding

Hike Sugarloaf Hill to the Radio Telescope

Cramers Park East End

Turners Hole

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)

Perfect location for a full family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Incredible Experience at Gentle Winds

  • 5 of 5

Our time in St Croix was made so much more memorable by staying at Gentle Winds. With the pristine beach, all hours pool, and wonderfully stocked house you really never have to leave, but you can as you're always close to other incredible sights in St Croix. We will be going back to Gentle Winds as soon as possible!

Awesome spot, 100% recommend!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

Gentle Winds has the perfect mix of seclusion and inclusion on the island. About a 10 minute drive from the main road and with its own private beach, pool, tennis courts, and more, you will not be disappointed. The house and pool area are stocked with games, tennis racquet, floaties, and anything else you could need or want to have a great time, young or old. Whether you're going for a relaxing getaway or are an adventure seeker looking to have a memorable vacation in the Caribbean, this condo is where you should go.
