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 St. Croix

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!

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!).

Nice beach front condo

  • 4 of 5

This is a really nice beach front condo. We rented a couple of condos to accommodate out family and had such a great time. The resort is laid back and the condo has everything you need. We had a problem with the a/c, however a repairman was able to fix it the next day.

A slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Edgewater/Gentle Winds with my wife, mom, 3.5 year-old, and almost 2 year-old, for 10 days this past December. Our stay was excellent, and since returning, not a day goes by, that we don't reminisce about our getaway.

Gentle Winds Condos are located on the northern part of St. Croix, adjacent to what I would call the beginning of the rolling, verdant part of the island. The location is very serene and secluded, but is only 15 minutes from downtown Christiansted, and perhaps 20 minutes from downtown Frederiksted. In addition, Gentle Winds is only a few minutes from Cane Bay, where you can find some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in the Caribbean. The beach at Gentle Winds, is one of the best "private" beaches that we visited on the island. There are always available palapas at the beach, as well as chairs and even a hammock under the palms. The swimming pool has been upgraded in the past couple of years, making it one of the best in the area. There is also a "snack shack" by the pool, that serves up tasty Caribbean cocktails and food.

Near the beach, there is a kid's play area, located under some tropical trees, where one can find hermit crabs and lizards everywhere. There is a kid's picnic table, along with a wooden, hand built "pirate ship". Our kids loved this little area.

The grounds of Gentle Winds are impeccably maintained, and there is a security guard/gatehouse about 1/2 mile in from the winding entrance. Sometimes, we seemingly had the whole beach to ourselves. You certainly won't have to get out of bed at 6 AM, to "reserve" a spot under one of the 15 palapas.

The unit itself is spacious, updated, well decorated and clean, with brilliant vistas of the grounds, pool and sea. At night, you can fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing about 30-50 yards out into the sea. John and Jo are the owners, and their customer service is impeccable. If there is an issue, they will attempt to solve it immediately. The Wi-Fi in the unit works well, and connectivity is steady. The refrigerator took awhile to cool items and freeze ice, but that can be attributed to being in the tropics. Sometimes (2 times in 10 days) the power in parts of the island will go down for a bit, but it is just the power company on St. Croix. At night, if you are in the upper master suite, you will want the sliding door open, to cool down with the breeze, and to hear the waves crashing. We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Jo and I are happy to provide our home to some of the greatest people for rest and relaxation. It's always satisfying to hear how much our guests enjoy Gentle Winds.

The Edgewater at Gentle Winds

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely lovely 3 bedroom with three baths condo. Beautiful Views, with a screened in Lanai off the living room,with views of the ocean and pool. Then two large outside areas upstairs, one off the loft, office area, with working gas grill and table and chairs, the other off a bedroom with two great lounges for lots of Sun and privacy and a view of the ocean and pool. Very family friendly, well kept up and supplied. An easy to use kitchen, which when traveling with grandchildren we made good use of. We had a full house and never felt crowded. Plenty of room to spread out. P.S. John and Jo have a great Library too! WE LOVE ST. CROIX, WE LOVE TO SNORKEL, WE LOVE THE SUN AND THE WARM BEAUTIFUL BEACHES AND TURQUOISE WATER!

Edgewater at Gentle Winds, St. Croix

  • 5 of 5

Being well traveled in the Caribbean, I was delightfully surprised at the comfort and functionality at this condo unit. I could have brought half of my suitcase because of the unit's washer/dryer. Kitchen was very well eaquiped with dish washer and disposal in 2 bowl sink. Three bedrooms and no shared baths. Great views and right on the beach. Will return.

Use Anchor Dive Center, 1/2 mi away very friendly and the best dive sites on island right there.
