It was our very first trip to the Virgin Islands. My twenty-six year old son and I loved our stay at Gentle Winds. Condo C-1 was pleasantly decorated and contained everything anyone could possibly need on vacation. Each of the two spacious bedrooms has its own bathroom. Central air conditioning available if needed. The condo's kitchen is very well-equipped with every modern convenience, and various grocery stores can be found nearby.
If you wish to eat out and/or visit the many interesting areas of St. Croix, you will need a vehicle. You are a short drive from Christiansted, the most active of the island's two ports. Remember you must drive on the left side of the road on St. Croix, and there are plenty of car rental companies.
Gentle Winds has a very attractive swimming pool right next to the property's private sandy beach. Tiki Huts and lounge chairs dot the shoreline leading to the ocean. While we both delighted in daily swimming and snorkeling, my son, having brought a fishing rod, also spent hours in the surf catching and releasing amazingly beautiful and diverse reef fish.
What we remember most about Gentle Winds and it's lovely tropical setting was the overall feeling of tranquility and peace. Our condo, surrounded by colorful foliage and well located for privacy, was like a "home away from home." This was one of the most enjoyable and relaxing vacations we have ever experienced.
