About Kent Vreeland

We love to travel! We have been all over the world, but what is nearest and dearest to our hearts are tropical destinations. Of all the places we have traveled to, St. Croix was the place that we truly fell in love with. We love to swim, snorkel, SCUBA dive (St. Croix has some of the best diving anywhere), sail, eat, drink, shop, eat and drink some more...St. Croix has it all!

Kent Vreeland purchased this condo in 2005

Why Kent Vreeland chose Estate Salt River

We visited St. Croix for the first time in 1998. We had already been to many of the Caribbean Islands, as well as many other tropical destinations, so we thought we would give St. Croix a try. We invited my parents to come with us and rented a villa not too far from Caribbean Breeze. One day during this fateful trip, after my Dad and I probably had one too many Rum drinks, I sat looking out at the view and dreamed of one day owning a home of my own on St. Croix. I told Dawn that I had been calculating....if we used all of our savings we just might be able to buy a house on St. Croix and rent it enough to pay the bills. She said, 'That's a nice idea but I don't think so!' The next morning, as I was sitting out on the deck nursing a terrible headache, she came over and said, 'You know, I've been thinking, you're probably right, we could do it' to which I replied 'Do what?' I didn't remember the conversation at all! Several months later we were on a Caribbean Cruise and St. Croix was one of the Ports of Call. We decided to look at some real estate...just for the fun of it. By noon that day we found our first property on St. Croix, Villa Dawn, and put in an offer. The next day we were docked on St. Thomas. We called the real estate agent on St. Croix from a phone on the beach. 'Did they accept our offer?' we asked. YES! was the reply! OH...MY...GOSH! WHAT DID WE DO! Just 5 years later, in 2005, we found, and purchased, Caribbean Breeze!

2nd Time Just as Good as the 1st

  • 5 of 5

Kent and Dawn are great and super helpful. This was our second time at Caribbean Breeze and third theme at one of their properties. Stayed at Villa Dawn once before. Gentle Winds is a great condo complex akin to a resort with an excellent pool and as close to a private beach as you can get on STX. With a center island location you can easily get to the Cane Bay Area and anywhere else on the island with ease. Great space at the condo with everything you need.

Great time in St. Croix at Caribbean Breeze!

  • 4 of 5

We spent seven nights at Caribbean Breeze. We loved all the space and extra amenities that were provided by Kent and Dawn. We found that the condo was well equipped with everything we needed to make our stay wonderful. My children loved the bag of snorkeling gear. I found that I didn't have to pack as much because so much was already provided such as beach towels, flashlights, kitchen items, etc. The location is perfect! It probably has the best view in the entire complex! We loved waking up and going to bed each night hearing the roar of the waves. We found it hard to cool the condo down the first couple of days. After a nice rain, it seemed that the air conditioner finally caught up. A ceiling fan on the screened in patio would be a nice addition! There were several power outages on the island while we were there, but we were told by the locals that this is a normal occurrence. All in all we had an amazing time and the property was just as described. Thanks Kent and Dawn.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Caribbean Breeze! We didn't have a guest the week before your stay, and while I do keep the A/C on, at about 80 degrees, it can take some time to cool everything back down during the summer months. I'll make a point of lowering the temp a day before guests arrive if no one is there the week prior. Adding a ceiling fan to the patio is on my list of things to do on my next visit. It really is not allowed, according to our rules and regulations, however, I will install one and then beg for forgiveness afterwards! Lol! ;) We hope you will choose to visit St Croix again sometime and choose to stay at Caribbean Breeze!

Awesome Views!

  • 5 of 5

Not the most updated condo...however it was still very nice and the kitchen...which we used ...was very well equipped. Food processor, George Foreman Grill, pots and pans galore, blender......frozen pool cups in the freezer! Washer/Dryer! ......and an awesome view of the ocean. This picture doesn't do it justice......the AC unit struggled..... I checked it out and compared to the other units next to was seriously a lot night you didn't need it.....the beach compared to other condo complexes was huge......all in all a great trip..

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Caribbean Breeze! We try hard to make your stay as comfortable as possible! There are some units, ground floor end units, that have an extra "garden room" off of the living room, but they don't have the same amazing, unobstructed views as Caribbean Breeze. Otherwise, all 2 bedroom units, with the exception of those "garden" units, are the same size and floor plan. Gentle Winds is an awesome complex in a great location! We are so glad that you got experience it!

Relaxing Family Vacation !

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location on the property - located closest to the ocean. We enjoyed our stay at Caribbean Breeze in April 2017 ! The whole property, in fact the island, was not crowded. 2 bedroom condo has everything you need for a family stay including well appointed kitchen with laundry facilities, cable tv, wifi. Restaurants or food store within a few minutes drive. Beach bar on the property was our favorite place for lunch . King bed in master bedroom was very comfortable! Screen across the balcony is a must as there are insects at night, not an issue in the day. Those looking for nightlife within easy walking distance will be disappointed. The person who built the building had an odd sense about the use of decorative concrete but ignore that. We were impressed with the quality of the food at reasonable prices in the restaurants. A rental car is a must - part of the adventure is driving on the left. The roads are sometimes marked - if you are from the US bring your Garmin - it will work as you are still in the United States. We are scuba divers and enjoyed the diving very much - warm water - nice reefs or walls - a few sharks - a few wrecks. Cane Bay dive shop moors their dive boat within walking distance of Caribbean Breeze. Reconnect with rum at the Cruzan distillery tour. Owner was excellent to communicate with !

Great Condo in the perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

We went to St. Croix in February and it was just perfect! Kent and Dawn's condo was as comfortable, spacious, clean and inviting as we could have hoped for! And the people at Gentle Winds were so friendly - we loved them all! Our vacation passed quickly and the more we explored the Island we soon fell in love with St. Croix. It has moved up the chart to the top of my favorite Caribbean Island! We hope to go back soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Caribbean Breeze and loved St. Croix! We definitely agree that St. Croix is an amazing Caribbean destination. St. Croix has not been overrun by commercial tourism like so many other Caribbean Islands and is an absolutely beautiful island. We hope that you will choose to stay at Caribbean Breeze again on your next visit to St. Croix!
