About John and Josephine

John and Jo spend as much time as they can at Edgewater, but live stateside in Virginia when not on-island.

John and Josephine purchased this condo in 2008

Why John and Josephine chose Estate Salt River

We were impressed with the quality of construction and the proximity to the beach. Being on over 35 acres as part of only 64 units offereed plenty of privacy, and the inclusion of a small golf course was a plus.

What makes this condo unique

The greatest pleasure we have found is mornings on the screened deck downstairs. We have a direct view of the beach and pool and it's so relaxing!

spacious condo, very nice resort, quiet, & helpful/responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very spacious. Owner provides enough toiletries, sun screen, laundry detergent, other non-food items to get you though until you can go shopping. Mask/snorkel/fins, boogie board, beach towels, etc.. also provided. One of decks is screened in which keeps bugs out. Condo conveniently located btw the 2 cities. Most tourist activities / sites within fairly short drive. Residents of St. Croix & staff at complex very warm & friendly.

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 19th year visiting St. Croix, but our first year staying at Gentle Winds and we were not disappointed. The property is perfectly located with a spectacular view of the beach and was very clean, neat and well appointed. We hope to go back there again next year.

Great Location, Great View!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a last minute reservation, but could not had been better. The owner John answer my request pretty fast. My crew was happy to have such a nice & clean apartment to come and rest after work. The view from the apartment is amazing and the location is great. This is my first time using VRBO and I will really do it again.

Great condo, great location near the beach... We'd go back in a minute...!

  • 5 of 5

First of all the owners, John and Jo were super friendly and super helpful and helped ensure we were clear about all details, and that we had all of our questions answered before and during our 8-day stay.

The condo is great. Three bedrooms, each with it's own bathroom and well spread out with two beds on first floor and a big master room upstairs. There are three total spaces to sit outside as well. A screened in patio area on the main floor, then two deck areas on the upper floor. One faces the ocean and is a great place to watch the sun set and the stars at night. And the kitchen is sizable and open. Overall, a super comfortable unit with tons of space.

The property is nice too. You enter down a long, private drive and come into the condo complex which arcs around a central pool, office and beach bar/hut area in the center right on the beach. Pool looked small in the pics, but was bigger than we anticipated and easily held our big group of 19 during the week. The pool and beach bar thing is right on the beach so you are just steps away from the ocean.

Take note, this location is quiet, secluded and private. Which, if you like quite and lovey areas to hang out, relax and throw down... it's perfect! And we never had to go lay out towels at 5am to fight for beach chairs, etc like at some locations. The only rub is that you pretty much have to drive anywhere you want to go. Out to eat, stores, bars, etc. Many great places to eat and drink are very close by however.

We had a great time and we would highly recommend this location and this specific condo as well...!

February Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with our daughter and her husband and 2 grandchildren ages 4 and 5. The condo was well equipped (even pool and beach toys for the kids )and the perfect size for our party. We enjoyed the view right off the screened porch. The pool is great for young and old, the owners and guests were all welcoming, and the private beach is nice and well kept with plenty of lounges and chairs. We've been to St. Croix before so did not really do the sightseeing this time, but did enjoy the local north shore restaurants that are nearby. We would rent this unit again (although we hear it is now on the market!).
