Gentle Winds is centrally situated on St Croix's mostly undeveloped North Shore, nestled between the sea, scenic mountains and the Salt River National Park and Ecological Preserve, site of Christopher Columbus' second voyage landing. Gentle Winds has only 64 units in 9 buildings sited in a semi-circle around the beach. There are 66 acres of beautifully landscaped and carefully maintained grounds. This low-density and relatively secluded location make for an ambiance that is peaceful and private yet neighborly and friendly. Although it feels quiet and apart, Gentle Winds is very centrally located and no more than 10-25 minutes away from all major attractions: the picturesque, historic towns of Christiansted and Frederiksted, a marina (within walking distance), the Robert Trent Jones Sr designed golf course at Carambola, the fascinating Botanical Garden, Whim Great House Museum, the rain forest, a casino,...not to mention the necessary amenities like restaurants, supermarkets and shopping centers There are many activities available – sailing, diving, kayaking, horseback riding, guided tours and hikes, excursions in glass-bottomed kayaks to view bio-luminescent waters, and a robust program of concerts, theater, sporting events, fairs and festivals. St Croix hosts several marathons and a triathalon. ABOUT C-1 Our unit C-1 is ideally oriented to take advantage of the sea views and the cooling trade-winds. You can see and hear sea and surf from the living room, the garden/dining room, one of the bedrooms, and the kitchen. There is also a sea side gallery (covered porch) and an intimate patio, which only a few units at Gentle Winds have. C-1 is a first floor end unit with a garden/dining room, for a spacious 1520 square feet
 Just one step down from the patio and a short stroll across the lawn takes you to the pool and beach. 2 bedrooms, (1 king, 1 queen) 2 baths, plus queen pull-out sofas in living room and front entry room can sleep 6+.

About the neighborhood
Gentle Winds' 66 acres are located on St Croix's unspoiled north shore nestled between the sea, scenic hills and the Salt River National Park and Ecological Preserve. An allee of royal palms almost half a mile long marks the entrance. There are great expanses of lawn and tropical trees and blooming shrubs creating a sense of peace and seclusion. Yet, Gentle Winds is centrally located and no more than ten to twenty-five minutes away from all major attractions. There are several excellent restaurants nearby, including one at the picturesque nearby marina. Salt River Marina is also the starting point for diving excursions to the famous 'wall' for the glass bottomed kayak tours to bioluminescent waters, for sailing, fishing and scenic walks. For golfers, there is a great Robert Trent Jones ...
Getting around
Most guests prefer to rent a car and tour the island at whim. It is possible to get along without a car, however, by stocking up on groceries when you arrive and arranging for personal service from one of the many local taxi services. The drivers are easily identifiable at their station near baggage claim at the airport. Rates to hotels and vacation rentals are standardized. Personal service is negotiable.
