I have visited Gentle Winds condos for over 10 years, mostly staying in unit C-6.
Wh visited again in March so that we could catch the St Patrick's Day parade - What a Hoot!!! The parade was fantastic with a Caribbean twist.

Unit C-6 is just as wonderful as the first time we visited. Three bedroom, with two master suites, one on the 1st floor and one on the 2nd. Great views of the Caribbean - you can see St Thomas and St Johns on clear nights and can catch an occasional cruise ship passing by.

Well equipped kitchen, accessible owner if there are any issues ( had just one in our numerous stays), pool, beach shack with great burgers - what else do you need?

I highly recommend....

Stayed: March 2017, travelled with friends

We rented a condominium at Gentle Winds based on Trip Adviser reviews and booked through VRBO. Very easy to work with Sharon Early who manages Unit J2. Grounds are impeccable. Condo was very well appointed and comfortable.

We rented a car and purchased a used Garmin GPS with Caribbean maps off of eBay prior to the trip for 50.00. (Don't leave in your car...always take it with you. Never lock your rental.) We explored St. Croix with ease from Gentle Winds location which is minutes from Cane Bay and Christiansted.

We bought a weeks worth of groceries at Plaza Grocery store for 240.00 (including alcohol and mixers). Two meals out for two people cost us 175.00 so you can see how eating out in the tourists areas can add up.

We love St. Croix and met many friendly locals. We had heard rumors on Trip Adviser about the bad crime but we felt extremely safe. We did not venture out much at night and did most our in-town excursions in the mornings. Our view of the beach and ocean on the screened in porch at J2 unit gave us no reason to do anything but relax and enjoy the view.

Best activities that we enjoyed:
Point Udall
Hike Issacs and Jack Bay
Cruzan Cowgirls Horseback riding
Hike Sugarloaf Hill to the Radio Telescope
Cramers Park East End
Turners Hole
Drive through the rainforest on Mahogany Rd (Do not stop at Mt. Pellier Domino Club)
Morning in Fredricksted (town, shopping, fort, beautiful beach, pier)
Morning in Christiansted (town, shopping, fort, boardwalk, view of Hotel on the Cay)

Room Tip: Beautiful grounds, pool, beach...impeccably kept.

Fantastic location in the building closest to the ocean. Could hear the wave even when the windows were closed. Clean condo with everything you need for a fantastic time in St Croix. Gentle Winds property was very nice - beach palapas were great, pool was also fantastic - the beach wasn't that great - a bit rocky - but that was no issue, Poolside BBQ was open every day - great place for burgers and drinks. As the other reviews indicate - the condos are older and ours was a bit dated - but it was no issue for us - everything worked fine and was perfect for a laid back beach vacation.

We loved the space of our condo...3 beds, 3 bathrooms. Loved the patios off the living room and the master. Lots of nice knickknacks-- one could tell that someone tried to make it homey. Except for the bathrooms, it was kind of dated though. Think 80s decor. The floor was a boring white tile. Kitchen was completely old and tired. Stainless steel fridge, but counter and cabinets were kind of yucky. There were little bugs on the counter when we first got there so we went to to grocery store for ant spray. The views were beautiful. The people at the snack shack on the beach were nice, but there were a lot of flies around there, so that's something to think about if your'e weird like me. Beach was beautiful. Plenty of chairs. There were workers fixing something during part of the time we were there, so lots of banging and drilling and that wasn't fun at all. I rented a jeep and learned to my detriment that the roads were poorly marked and potentially deadly due to crazy drivers speeding around blind corners. Once a guy even jumped out of his car and came at us because I had hesitated before going into an intersection. He started cursing at me, scaring the crap out of me and my kids so I sped away and he actually CHASED ME IN HIS CAR! He finally stopped but it was the most bizarre, scariest experiences ever. I thought his response was way over the top and there were no police in sight. By the way, cell service is also poor so good luck calling for help. Anyway, because of the poor roads, crappy grocery stores (lots of things were expired), dated condo and generally feeling unsafe, even though the condo was fairly inexpensive, I don't think I will be doing this trip alone again with my two kids anytime soon.

Room Tip: We were in Bldg I which is closest to the beach

Dirty, dingy and in awful shape. There was black mold everywhere, all of the towels were stained, the kitchen was dirty and the AC broke four days before we arrived.
And the listing agent was unapologetic and unhelpful.

GENTLEWINDSJ3, Owner at Gentle Winds Condominiums, responded to this reviewResponded 25 April 2017

The Gentle Winds Condominium is a beautiful complex with 40 acres of beautifully manicured grounds and beach. As the owner of unit J3, I take all complaints seriously and would like to answer the complaint of Maryann and her father Don, who stayed at the condo in March at the same time but posted separately in trip advisor. I would like to point out that in the tropics air conditioners run around the clock year around and do break down and have to be repaired. When the air conditioner went out and parts were ordered for the fix, the window units were installed at the cost of $1500. for the comfort of these guest, right before they arrived, so we didn't strand the guest without air conditioning. The technician we needed for the repair was unfortunately off island. It is possible that a musty smell developed during this period of time without air conditioning. The air conditioner has been fixed and is working well. The condo is cool and fresh.

The pots and pans, towels and pillows were replaced last November 2016 when we were there. Although we only had 4 guest stay there since our visit, we are replacing the pots and pans again as well as the kitchen linens and pillows. I have shipped new towels twice since then as we send higher quality towels that are not available locally on the island .

The condo has been thoroughly cleaned. It is important to note that the housekeeper has already been replaced as she left the island that week, which may explain her lack luster cleaning her last week.

When we were there last November 2016 there was no evidence of mold anywhere in the condo and it was clean. The condo has been inspected by the manager and another rental agent with 35 years experience and neither found mold.
