“Our stay at D6 was thoroughly enjoyable.”

Reviewed 14 Mar 2014

Dealing with Larry and Pat was a pleasure. This was our first visit to St. Croix so we had plenty of questions and they were all answered completely and promptly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in D6 - the condo, location, beach, pool, amenities and of course the weather. Before we booked our stay at Gentle Winds D6 we read the reviews by previous guests and were duly impressed. To avoid repetition, I suggest you read more extensive reviews by guests that preceded us.

“Vacation in Paradise - GW unit D6”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2013

Just returned from an awesome vacation in unit D6. The owners, Pat and Larry, did an excellent job decorating the unit with local artwork. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed. The owners had basic staples stocked as well as the mini bar so we didn't have to run out to the store immediately. The Gentle Winds complex was very well kept and the staff was friendly. The updated pool was wonderful. There is also a beach snack shack that served great sandwiches and snacks as well as tasty libations! This was very handy when you didn't feel like cooking or going out! The beach at GW was nice and sandy and had plenty of lounge chairs and tiki huts. The owners were very easy to work with and suggested some of their favorite restaurants, excursions and stores which was very helpful. So, if you are looking for a great place to relax, we strongly recommend GW unit D6.

“What a great place to relax and have fun!”

D-6 Condo at Gentle Winds is unbelieveable. Everything you could possibly need was right there Larry and his manager were always available to make sure all was perfect for our stay. There were 8 in our group and we all agree to return next year for a reunion. The pool and the Sea were just outside the condo the views were breathtaking. We couldn't be more pleased unless we had been staying for 2 weeks rather than just one.

“Unique unit with a peronal touch”

Reviewed 3 Mar 2012

I stayed here on my first trip to STX, in unit D6, owned by Larry and Pat Knudsen. They were so helpful when it came to deciding where to stay! Talked to them directly on the phone and they sounded lovely. They even worked with us on pricing. The best part when we arrived was the setup of their condo. You can tell they really have a unique style and a passion for the island lifestyle. Their unit was creatively decorated and came with all amenities one would need. Bathrooms were fully stocked with linens and supplies, the kitchen was complete with cookware, a blender, a few pantry items and they have a mini bar also. We tried to replace most items we used. The 3 bedroom (two down and one up) unit was perfect for our stay even though there were only two of us. This unit could definitely accommodate a family and some friends. There is a deck off the bedroom upstairs that was perfect for watching the sunrise. Screened porch for hanging out and dining at night while listening to the waves. There were also plenty of books, magazines and board games if it was rainy! There is a pool, beach chairs and hammocks on the beach. Also, great stretch of beach to explore, watch out for sea urchins! With a short drive to Christiansted or to Cane Bay, Gentle Winds has a great location and amenities to match!

“Very Relaxing & Family Friendly!”

Reviewed 18 Feb 2012

This condo quickly became like home to us. Very clean & accommodating to our family of 8, (mom, dad, 3 adult children & 3 kids) Many games, many videos/dvds, & sports equipment (basketball, tennis, croquet, etc) gave us plenty to do after being at the pool, beach, diving, sight-seeing, or shopping. Not directly on the beach but at the top of beautiful spacious grounds surrounding several different condo buildings. Pool & beach are wonderful! Our cell phones didn't have service, but with free wi-fi, we kept contact with our daughter's laptop. All in all, we had a great 3 weeks here.

“Beautiful unit with lots of amenities in a great location”

Reviewed 25 Jan 2012

Staying at Pat and Larry's is like staying at your home away from home but with lots more beautiful art. The unit was very clean and the beds quite comfortable. They even had extra pillows in case you liked extra soft or extra firm. There was even a vase of fresh flowers to welcome us. The weather in January was fantastic. We slept every night with the windows open and listened to the sound of the surf. The Moko Jumbie show at Carambola on Friday night was great fun. We found out afterwards that you don't have to go to the buffet to see the show. You can just go to the bar located on the other side of the patio and have a drink or casual food which would cost less than the buffet. We also found out that "Two for Tuesdays" at the Brew Pub applies to bottled beer only, not draft. Their teriyaki chicken wings are great and it's great fun feeding the bones to the huge tarpon that wait just beside the boardwalk. All in all, we had a great time and would definitely recommend D-6 to anyone wishing to visit St. Croix.

“Peace and quiet with a view.”

Reviewed 23 Oct 2011

We've been going to St Croix for over 20 years now and this is the 1st time we've stayed at Gentle Winds Condos; in all those years. The only downside of the trip was that the pool and beach bar were closed during our stay for renovations. We were informed of this well in advance of our arrival by Larry and Pat. We are beach people and would rather swim in the ocean anyway. Now for the good part...everything else. Your arrival at Gentle Winds property begins with the long palm lined driveway. Along your way you pass the tennis courts and the golf pitch and putt. The driveway brings you to the guard house that is manned nightly. At this point you can head to the left to go to the office area or to the right to the condo buildings. The property is well maintained with lots of palms and flowering bushes of many types. The complex consists of 9 condo buildings no taller than 3 stories and all have views of the beautiful water. The unit D-6 is up just 1/2 a flight of stairs and has most of it's rooms on this level and the 3rd bedroom, bathroom and loft area up a spiral staircase. The unit has 3 porch/balcony areas, 1 faces the island and is a great place to watch the sunrise. The other two face the water and hill views to the west. Everything that we could have possible needed was provided in this unit, from beach towels to kitchen needs to washer/dryer. The unit is decorated in a bright and relaxed manner with lots of beautiful prints and paintings, including many by the owner himself. The day after we arrived we were welcomed by Sylvia, the unit property manager. She made us feel welcome and let us know that she was available should we have any questions or problems. Thankfully we never needed her for that, but ran into her again mid-way through our trip and truly enjoyed talking with her. We highly recommend staying in this unit for a great central location that worked well for a mix of age groups. Thank you Larry & Pat, we will be back.

“Relaxing, clean, large, conveniently located, priced right”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2011

Gentle Winds D-6 was a great place for us to stay. My college-age boys also enjoyed the basketball hoop, which was just a few yards from the door,(basketball in condo closet with airpump)and perfect for those down-time moments after beach, pool,sight-seeing! Our favorite beach at Cane Bay was just a 10 minute drive away (in our Budget rental car, a must), and everything from towns to shopping was very convenient. I especially appreciated that we didn't have to purchase all those small necessities; condiments, salt&pepper;,beach towels, etc. Larry and Pat thought of everything to make a comfortable stay, maps, guides, etc., & everything worked(Tv's, AC, Internet(needed to connect the wire in the loft), and Larry telephoned before our trip when I had questions. The residents of St. Croix are lovely and polite. A big highlight was sailing to Buck Island with Capt. Carl on Teroro II. Be prepared for the price of food, but you'll save the Usvi 8% hotel sales tax with D-6!

“Great beach condo for family getaways”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2011

The D6 condo at Gentle Winds is in a fantastic location with plenty of amenities. The condo features 3 full bed and baths with ample room to relax and enjoy the beach views. Two rear decks facing the water are great for enjoying meals or just the views. The condo has clean fully stocked bathrooms with a tub as well for children's baths. Air conditioning works great with fans in all rooms. Cooking is easy with a grocery store just a few miles away and a full size fridge and oven. The condo is just a short walk away from a private beach with tons of activities and a great pool. There is a small golf course available for chipping practice or short club practice. The greens are not good so don't expect to get quality putting in, also watch out for the ants on the greens. The beach also features a snack shack so you don't have to haul the kitchen sink. Don't forget to bring cash. The snorkeling at Gentle Winds is ok and it's located centrally on the island to some great diving options (Cane Bay & Buck Island). The condo complex is gated and security is present at night towards the weekends. We felt absolutely safe staying in Gentle Winds. After visiting Christiansted we would never stay in the towns after our private/relaxing experience in Gentle Winds. Getting around on the island is a breeze, no pun intended. It's not a huge island and it's not terribly built up so the crowds are non-existent. We did not travel to St. Croix during any scheduled cruise arrivals. We would definitely stay at Gentle Winds in the future!

“Paradise”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2011

This Gentle Winds unit was in excellent condition. It was well appointed and it's decor got you in the Caribbean mood! The air conditioning was in excellent working order and we had no hot water issues. The unit was clean and tidy upon our arrival. The condo was spacious enough to house 8 comfortably, had a Caribbean view and was a short walk to the condo's beach and reef area. We played ping pong, golfed the pitch and putt, swam in the pool, ate and had drinks at the beach shack which were all within the Gentle Winds grounds. The condo is a short drive eastbound to Christiansted and it's shopping / restaurants. Other fine restaurants can also be found traveling west on the north shore of the island. Among our adventures, we chartered a boat (The Mocko Jumbie - my sister caught a 180 lb blue marlin and we also landed mahi and barracuda), sailed to the Buck Island reef, kayaked Salt River at night witnessing the luminescent plankton while also learning the history of the island from our tour guide and also enjoyed unguided wave runners at the west end of the island outside of Fredericksted. Obviously, we snorkeled, snorkeled and snorkeled some more!! The cuisine on the island was excellent and we would recommend Kendricks, Rum Runners Christiansted Brew Pub (feed the tarpon your chicken wing bones, Angry Nates (Sunday Brunch), the Palms Restaurant, Carombola Beach Resort(Fridays), eats at Cane Bay (get there early) and Turtles Deli in Fredericksted for the best sandwiches. A large K-Mart and Plaza Extra food store are located near Fredericksted about 20 minutes from the condo on Route 70. The K-Mart is well stocked and the Plaza Extra has excellent meats and a wide variety of food staples. I have been fortunate to have travelled to St. Croix for the past 40 years. I have been spoiled and have no interest to travel elsewhere. Once you travel to the island, you won't want to leave and your memories will conspire you to come back!!
