I read all the reviews about Gentle Winds and this particular end unit and I agree with all the positive attributes other visitors have commented on. But, I have a few things to add. It is actually more beautiful inside this unit and outside than the lovely pictures convey and it felt very conducive to playing and relaxing. Perhaps it's because of the open layout, roominess and lush views from almost everywhere in the main living areas. While eating breakfast in the dining area we took in the same tropical picture through the full sliding glass doors as we could while preparing food in the kitchen, or sitting on the screened porch, which also had another table and 4 chairs, (more good room for spreading out) We had the views in all of the living areas: coconut palms waving and sounds of the ocean. No matter where you are you can't help but feel good. The decor was tropical with soothing colors. Playing games (the owner stocked games and books - another plus, in the dining area) or reading on the screened porch even using a tablet, we could always hear the ocean. The condo's layout gave some separation so you're not shoulder to shoulder every moment, yet it felt connected at the same time. (I'm not an architect, I can't explain why it worked) A separate couch (sleeper sofa) in the entry area was another nook to be in which we didn't use because we didn't have extended family or kids with us but it's available. The king size beds were comfortable, the bedrooms felt very roomy and there was plenty of storage space. As we walked across the lawn to the pool and saw the ocean beyond and mountain and palm trees, we started to relax even before we got to the pool and beach. What made the vacation easy in this particular unit was that the owners thought of everything so basically we just provided food in the fridge. They even had spices in the well stocked kitchen: plenty of sliverware, dishes, (very pretty ones too) utensils, pots. Lots of towels and wash cloths and separate beach towels and even extra shampoos and soap under the bathroom sink. A washer and dryer helped also. We ate out when we wanted and did the tours that attracted us. My husband had a great diving experience, his 2nd only dive. We attended a lecture & slide show on the large leatherback and other sea turtles that come to the beaches to lay their eggs. Next day we walked the beach early morning hoping to find the tracks of one of these 500 - 1,000 pound turtles that might have come at night which is when they dig their nests. We found some and that was exciting. Definitely pick up the brochures at the snack bar by the pool for good ideas of what's happening while you're there. We loved going to the free soft jazz concert in town and walking along the boardwalk, eating dinner outdoors near the sea. On the days when a cruise ship comes in, there are street vendors along the port. That was fun to shop. Suggestion: Call to get information on whatever you find in the brochures as they're not always specific or accurate. As we learned, "your're in St. Croix and things are lay back - don't worry be happy!"

“What an awesome Christmas!”
Reviewed December 28, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We just returned from a great two week vacation during which our daughter and her family joined us for Christmas week. The condo was pristine and outfitted with everything imaginable - even an egg slicer - and a multitude of appliances. We have traveled quite a bit, usually staying in condos, but have never found one as much like home as this! The view was stunning! Thank you, Maresa and Bob, for letting us share your condo in paradise!

Hyacinth was a dream to work with. She stayed in touch to make sure we had everything we needed and even called Christmas day just to wish us Merry Christmas!

Sheila and Sarah down at the Sandy Toes Tiki Bar on the beach were terrific - great fun and very accommodating. Food and drinks were yummy and Sheila's jewelry is awesome. Be sure to ask her to see her latest creations. Both girls were very helpful, suggesting what we should see and do while we were on island. Snorkeling at Rainbow Beach in Frederiksted was awesome. Dinner at the Brew Pub in Christiansted was a lot of fun too.

Also, just a FYI, we found Plaza Extra West to be the nicest and most complete grocery store in which to shop. They have a very nice selection of gluten-free products, very important to our family.

Finally, a few mosquitoes found me while I was there, but with diligent use of insect repellent, they didn't ruin my vacation this year. Here's a good tip. Ask your veterinarian for some Vetri Science Repel Wipes. They are a natural repellent for fleas, ticks, flies and mosquitoes that smell good (like cloves and cinnamon).

The condo in question has no. 2302605.
We are form Denmark. The condo was clean. Which is important.
The condo is on the beach, and from the living room there is a full view over the park, beach and sea. A very beautifull view.
There is a swimmingpool and a 4 hole golf training course.
The beach is sandy. No rocks and stones. But further out there is good snorkeling.
The wall is just outside the beach.
The apartment is fully fournished for 2 couples, with 2 bedrooms and bathrooms in connection with the bedrooms. Linnen and towels is provided. There is two sofas so you
can stay 6 persons.
Fully furnished kitchen with a good coffee maker and what else you need for household.
Let me stress this: You want to stay forever.

“Amazing Vacation”
Reviewed February 12, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We have been to St. Croix before but never experienced this amazing condo at Gentle Winds, the beautiful view and the beach. The Condo has everything you would want for a vacation. We were able to spend quality time with our kids. There is tons to do on the Island and there are great restaurants within a short drive of the condo. I would highly recommend this area!!
