Great condo in great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our second stay at Gentle Winds. The condo was clean and well equipped. We couldn't access the condo wifi so we used the pool wifi, which was very slow. Otherwise our stay was very relaxing.

A tranquil experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six had a very relaxing and comfortable stay here. We are still missing our "beach house" experience. This unit was very spacious with a wonderful view of the ocean and mountains. It has a north/south exposure, so there was a beautiful breeze to keep the unit cooled. We traveled with a large family group, fourteen of us total, for a week's stay. Other families stayed in different buildings at the complex. It was so enjoyable to explore the beach, sight-see, visit with the family and yet have our own space for downtime. We took a Virgin Kayak Tour of Bioluminescent Bay and sailed out to Buck Island on The Jolly Roger Charter. We all had a blast! The unit was spacious, clean, well stocked with dishes, cookware and towels. Our group used the BBQ grills a few nights and the Beach Shack was our go-to for lunches and drinks. The cooks do a great special each day and were very friendly! Thanks to Vanessa for sharing her piece of paradise with us! We look forward to returning in the future.

Very relaxing location on St. Croix

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Gentle Winds. It's a great location, centralized for exploring the island.

Gentle Winds is a very nice condo complex and Vanessa's condo has a beautiful view of the pool and ocean. I loved sitting out on the balcony in the morning, drinking coffee while reading the paper. And then going to the pool or the beach in the afternoon and sipping a rum punch while reading a book. Very relaxing.

I certainly recommend it.

Beautiful property and location

  • 5 of 5

My husband two kids and I stayed at Vanessa's beautiful condo for a week for a family get away to completely relax and reconnect with each other -- and it was a wonderful choice. We had been to St. Croix before, but we had not been to Gentle Winds and now we have found the perfect family spot to come back to. The condo is lovely and you literally hear the ocean and gentle winds in the palms all night long. There are many easy trips to make for activities around the island from this location, but you can just as easily stay and relax all day at the property, snorkeling at the on-site beach, swimming at the pool, reading in the shade and enjoying the beach shack offerings for lunch and drinks. The kids had plenty to occupy themselves with -- golf, tennis, the basketball court and bocci and shuffleboard right there. We are very thankful for the lovely stay and kind hospitality from Vanessa who had great tips for shopping and restaurants. Don't miss a stop at La Reine's Chicken Shack for an awesome take-in dinner and the Pickled Greek was also great for lunch!

St Croix

  • 4 of 5

A nice unit but had several issues that did not make our 2 week vacation very relaxing. The hot water heater was unplugged so we started our vacation with cold showers - this was fixed on Monday by the general manager. The TV had one channel - this was fixed on tuesday with instructions from the owner in email. The refrigerator was a cool 57 degrees - this was fixed Thursday afternoon - almost a week into our 2 week stay. If you've ever been to St Croix, groceries and eating out is very expensive! I have requested a partial refund for the first week - to cover my lost groceries and the extra expense of eating out! We usually eat all breakfast and most lunches in the condo. I have not received a response from the owner. I love St Croix and I love Gentle Winds; however, I do not recommend this unit.
