  • Calypso Condo still lives up to its name

    "In Greek mythology Calypso was a nymph of exceptional beauty who lived on a hidden island and kept a lover her prisoner for years. Perhaps that's why the Flanagans named their Gentle Winds home "Calypso", a beautiful place where you wouldn't mind being held captive for years. This was the second time that our family (husband, 16-year old, 13-year-old and 9-year old, plus my parents in their mid-70's) was fortunate enough to spend 9 days on St. Croix staying at Calypso Condo. The word "condo" though doesn't do it justice. Calypso becomes your home for the time you are there. Calypso still has every amenity you could possibly desire. Toiletries in the bathroom, novels on the bookshelf, a well-stocked bar and some sunscreen (hats, too) await you upon your arrival so that you can start relaxing without doing that first run to the supermarket upon landing. Furnishings are clean, fresh, comfortable and stylish, loads of local art adorn the brightly-painted walls. We love when the Shack opens its' shutters each day around 11 so the kids can get their fruit daiquiris. Food is always fresh and everyone had a favorite "drink of the day". The Caribbean Sea beckons with its warm, lapping waves and snorkeling right off the beach, but at night the Gentle Winds pool lights are irresistible for that night swim. Its a tough decision to leave Gentle Winds to explore the island but when you do, we recommend Rainbow Beach in Frederiksted, the beach restaurant and activities are a fun way to spend a day. Crab races on the boardwalk in Christiansted was a highlight. Un Amore has fresh Italian specialties that will inspire you to order something from every course with a wine selection to match. One day set your alarm and drive the 40 minutes or so to see the sunrise at Point Udall. The drive on this part of the island is gorgeous in the pre-dawn hours. Lots more recommendations in the Calypso Condo Guest Book. Snag this place if it is available."

  • Amazing Vacation!!!

    "We stayed a week at this condo. My husband and I were there looking for property to buy. We absolutely loved this condo - the view is AMAZING. The location can't be beat as you are 5 minutes from Christensted and a short drive to everything else. Gail was great to work with. We spent every morning and every evening sitting out on the patio looking at the ocean. The snorkeling right off the beach is pretty good. A trip to Buck Island with Big Beards is a must see when you are there. We had a car and drove all over the island. Cane Bay was great and the snorkeling there was really good. We will be back!!!!"

  • Outstanding service and location

    "We had an amazing time at Dreamy Island Villa. The Reef was the perfect location for us as it was at the quiet East End yet convenient. The owners could not have been more responsive and went above and beyond with tips about the island. The condo is exceptionally clean and well appointed. The beach guide they provide is priceless in helping you find the most beautiful and remote areas that would be hidden without inside knowledge. We took the guide's advice and jogged at Point Udall several mornings followed by a dip in the water at Cramer Park. Don't miss Isaac's Beach - worth the walk! We also took advantage of the provided golf clubs for a round at the Reef and snorkeled at Shoys Beach. Our vacation was so amazing we made an offer on a villa a few doors down and will be Dream Island's neighbors soon! The Reef truly is a piece of paradise. Don't hesitate book today!"

    "We stayed for a week (one bedroom apt) and it was terrific. Teri and her assistant, Steve, were very responsive to our (small) requests and we loved our vacation! The apartment is nice and looks just like the photos. The real gem is the location-really just ten steps to the most magnificent beach and clearest water one can imagine. Good snorkeling and the walk on the beach to town was easy and fun. We hope to be back again soon!"
