St. Croix Condo Rental Photos and Description

2+BR Oceanfront Vacation Rental North Shore, Virgin Islands USA

Welcome - If you are looking for a beautiful vacation condo in the Virgin Islands, come and enjoy a beautifully decorated two plus bedrooms, two bathroom, fully-equipped, condominium with porch, kitchen, living room, dining area, and Florida room with sleeping accommodations for up to eight at St. Croix's premier beachfront resort. The Gentle Winds Resort has the island's loveliest beach, swimming pool, tennis courts, golf practice area, basketball court, play area, and a secluded setting unmatched in all of the Virgin Islands.

St. Croix, Virgin Islands, is rich in history and physical charm and beauty, offering word class scuba diving and snorkeling in some of the clearest water in the Caribbean, a Trent Jones Golf course (as well as two others), a fabulous botanical garden and many historical buildings and ruins, including by the many windmill ruins perched on hills and hidden in deep tropical forests.

Gentle Winds is located on the northern short of St.

Croix Adjacent to Salt River, an estuary where Columbus landed in one of his voyages to the New World. It is minutes from the picturesque Danish Caribbean town of Christiansted, once the capital of the Virgin Islands and Fredricksted, also called Freedom City on the sunset west coast of the island.

St. Croix is a pleasant blend of the busy activity of St. Thomas and the tranquility of St. John. There is plenty to do, with three golf courses, a casino, excellent diving, first class restaurants and secluded sandy beaches. Plus, you can explore our meticulously maintained botanical gardens, the museum at Whim Plantation and go horseback riding in the rain forest. The options are unlimited.

Perfect for divers, snorkelers, beach combers, sun lovers, and history buffs.

The beach at Gentle Winds is among the finest beaches in the Virgin Islands. If you are looking for a variety of beaches, St Croix offers other north coast beaches at Cane and Davis bay as well as Kramer Park near Point Udahl, the eastern most point in the United States and the site of a prize winning Millennium monument. Just around the bend to the south is the Divi Carina Bay Casino and hotel. Halfpenny Beach on the southeastern part of the island is enjoyed year round as are the sunset beaches on St Croix's west coast. If you come in the Spring and inquire in advance, it may be possible to arrange a Turtle watch through the US Fish and Wildlife Service of the several nesting amphibians who return to St Croix to lay and tend their eggs and to give their progeny a good start in life.

The cultural life of St Croix is not limited to viewing historical sites and viewing historical reenactments. There is an Art Museum in Fredricksted, several first rate galleries, frequent art exhibitions at a variety of venues including the annual Starving Artists Festival at the Whim Museum, a fully restored sugar plantation.

St Croix is gifted with world class musicians who play free concerts on the third Friday and first Sunday of every month. There are a half dozen venues for Jazz, blues and vocals of every kind as well as 2 dance companies and a variety of visiting artists at the Whim Museum's candlelit concert series and at the Island Center for the Performing arts.

There is a fine repertory theater company which, in addition to its regular performances has launched Page to Stage this year. It is an attempt to provide theater learning experiences for Virgin Islands children.

THIS IS WHAT PARADISE IS ALL ABOUT!!

  • 5 of 5
This condo was very nice and well equipped. When they say Gentle Winds thats exactly what they mean.The view is awesome and the wind flows thru so nice that you don't need air conditioning. Although the air conditioning unit is brand new.The amenities are great. The pool the pool bar with awesome food and great prices. The condo is very clean and sleeps 8+. There is tennis and a 4 hole golf holes. Its 10 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from Christiansted The condo and property are very well maintained and have fresh paint in island colors. We met a lot of very nice people and made a lot of new friends. It is very family friendly with a beautiful beach. We are already looking into returning as soon as possible and will definitely be staying at Gentle Winds B3!!

EXCELLENT FACILITY FOR RELAXING VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We found the condo to be an excellent place for a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. Very clean and well equipped and the owner very accessible for any questions. We rented a car and spent a part of each day enjoying the beautiful scenery on different parts of St. Croix. The pool and beach at the condo were awesome! We enjoyed several restaurants near the condo serving great food and relaxing surroundings with beautiful views of sunsets. The people we met couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. We would certainly return to 3B the next time we get the opportunity.

PERFECT VACATION IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We arrived in St Croix and immediately made our way to Gentle Winds, about a 10 minute drive from the airport. The drive into the complex was very impressive, making us even more excited to be there. Once we arrived at the condo it was absolutely gorgeous! The grounds are spectacular.
The unit itself was exactly as it was described, roomy and spotless. It is in the ideal location within the complex with spectacular views of the pool and beach. The property and unit itself were extremely well maintained. The grounds were immaculate, the beach was combed continuously, and the pool was beautiful.
The owner was extremely helpful and provided excellent customer service. I cannot say enough about this property and unit. It provided us a perfect, relaxing vacation.
The condo is on the North Shore of the island with great casual restaurants and other gorgeous beaches and dive areas. Christiansted is an easy 10 minute drive with shopping, sight seeing and more great restaurants. We loved every minute and can't wait to get back!

JUST PLAIN FABULOUS

  • 5 of 5
First of all, my wife and I love St Croix-and always seem to gravitate back here after going to other islands. We have stayed at hotels and condos-on St Croix and elsewhere and found the usual variation-but this is just about perfect for at least what we like in a condo (and for a real change, a bit better than even the description). The pros include a great view of ocean and gardens from just about everywhere in the condo (the exception being the second bedroom), very well kept grounds, a small but private sandy beach and swimming pool, snack bar (with very reasonable food and drinks for a small pool side bar), well kept tennis courts (we both play), and a bonus-an open access 4 hole (two of them near the ocean) golf area for wedge-pitch and chip that was perfect for practicing and getting some exercise (there are also a mile or more of roads and mowed grassland to hike within the resort), the condo is clean, well equipped (for example, a coffee grinder and espresso machine), and simply but smartly furnished in Caribbean beach style -all of which we like a lot. While the north shore (windy and wavy) location may not be everyone's first choice- we like being 15 minutes from the airport-10 minutes from Christiansted (you do need a car), within hiking distance of salt river reserve, a dive shop and small eatery- yet feeling like you were on your own island. The owners were very easy to contact and friendly as well, so for us- near perfection.

GREAT TIME AT A GREAT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
The condo was very clean, well equipped and had everything we needed for a relaxing family vacation. Owner made sure we had everything we needed including great music on CDs to enhance the mood. It was awesome to hear the ocean waves all night with the windows open. Nice breeze! Very relaxing. Saw lots of fish while snorkeling at the Gentle Winds beach. The pool was awesome too. Great bar at the beach serves excellent food and drinks. Had Satellite TV and wireless internet available all over the resort, even at the beach.
Nice places to eat along the water in Christiansted only 15 minutes away.
Also great food at the Marina next door to the Gentle Winds resort.
No need to go anywhere else unless you want to explore the Island, which we did. The kids had a great time and we would all highly recommend staying at Gentle Winds!
