Very clean and well maintained. Comfortable beds with a full kitchen to make any meal. Quiet with a nice pool and beach. Barbara, the owner was easy to contact and answered questions quickly. Amazing view of the beach/ocean from the balcony. Would recommend to anyone coming to St. Croix.

“Outstanding Family Vacation in St Croix”
Reviewed 26 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My wife, daughter, grandson and I were treated to an absolutely outstanding vacation experience thanks to Gentle Winds Calypso Condo and the attention to every detail of our stay there by the owner Barbara Flanagan. From the first booking inquiry to questions when we arrived Barbara was so responsive with helpful information. The condo itself far exceeded our expectations - it was immaculate, well laid out and furnished and also featured a kitchen with spices, good quality cookware etc we needed when we cooked in. The Gentle Winds condo community was also immaculate, quiet and so pleasant we actually spent most of our 5 days there. We loved the salt water pool and the beach was also great. There is a small food service there featuring lunches and drinks so you can just veg out in the ever blowing sea breezes. Also large activity rooms with books and tables. We did take a drive to the Eastern most point of the US and did a half day snorkel trip to Buck Island which were also very enjoyable. We ate all but one dinner at the condo using the supplied gas grill. For the last night we drove to the Waves Restaurant on the North shore which was outstanding. My wife and I have traveled extensively using Tauck for our escorted trips. This condo is right up there with the very pricy 5 star Tauck chosen hotels! I can't think of anything I'd change!

Being "right up there with the very pricey 5 star Tauck hotels" is good news indeed. Beauty and quality is what we are striving for starting with lots of original art and ending with good cookware. Thanks for finding time to write.

Just got home from a wonderful time on the island of St. Croix! We loved our condo it was perfect for our family of 6. Everything we needed was there. Plenty of space for everyone. The owner is more than accomodating. She was very helpful with any questions that we had about our stay. I would recommend staying in this condo. It perfect!

“Calypso Condo was even better than expected”
Reviewed 28 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

people found this review helpful

Our stay at Calypso Condo was even better than expected. The unit itself is very well appointed. Everything we needed was right there. There are front and rear sliders so there is always a breeze moving through. No need to use the A/C. There is a nice view of the beach and that is just a short walk away. You can sit at the pool, if you don't like sand and still have a view of the ocean. Cane Bay is a short drive away. We had dinner there and we also snorkeled there. We would definitely recommend staying here. You won't be disappointed.

We too enjoy opening the front and rear sliders and just letting the Trade Winds blow through and it was good to hear that everything you needed was right there.

“Great stay”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This was our second year staying at Calypso Condo at Gentle Winds, and it was just as good as the first time. One of the reasons we enjoy the condo is that it is clean and has a large, fully stocked kitchen for meal preparation. The grill also came in handy for burgers and chicken. We would definitely stay at Calypso Condo again on a return trip; Barbara was helpful and quick to respond to my many questions.

Many people become addicted to St. Croix and come year after year. We hope you will become one of them. It's a green tropical island and yet it is not touristy and full of high rises. Hope to see you again next year.

“Our stay at Gentle Winds St Croix was fantastic!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My husband, daughter,son in law and 10 year old granddaughter just returned from St Croix were we stayed ay Gentle Winds C-2. We have stayed at many condos and this one was fantastic. It had everything we could possibly need. There were beach towels galore. The storage closet had everything you could possibly need for snorlking, tennis, golf or just fun at the pool. The rooms were more than comfortable and spacious for our group of 5. Barbara always got back to me with any questions we had and was a fountain of information on all thing St Croix. I would recommend this condo and Barbara to anyone going to St Croix.
