This Condo is on the northshore right next to the Salt River. We found the size of the unit perfect for teenage boy and 22 year daughter, each had their own space. Grounds were perfect, you can see the ocean and hear the waves crashing...More

About the neighbourhood
Gentle Winds' 66 acres are located on St Croix's unspoiled north shore nestled between the sea, scenic hills and the Salt River National Park and Ecological Preserve. An allee of royal palms almost half a mile long marks the entrance. There are great expanses of lawn and tropical trees and blooming shrubs creating a sense of peace and seclusion. Yet, Gentle Winds is centrally located and no more than ten to twenty-five minutes away from all major attractions. There are several excellent restaurants nearby, including one at the picturesque nearby marina. Salt River Marina is also the starting point for diving excursions to the famous 'wall' for the glass bottomed kayak tours to bioluminescent waters, for sailing, fishing and scenic walks.
For golfers, there is a great Rob...
