Description of the North Shore vacation condo rental
 Gentle Winds condominium resort was ranked #1 by TripAdvisor based on travelers' reviews in St. Croix and Calypso Condo was designated an Award of Excellence for 2012, also based on travelers' reviews. Honeymooners, couples and families alike will enjoy the amenities at Gentle Winds and Calypso Condo (C-2), a three bedroom, three ensuite bath unit on two levels with two master suites and cathedral ceilings with prices based on the number of guests. The private resort has its own white sand beach set off from the public surrounded by a protecting coral reef providing the perfect environment for snorkeling and swimming. It combines the amenities of an exclusive resort with the charm of a friendly neighborhood. Sixty-six units are located on 40 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. There are permanent palapas and lounge chairs on the beach, a beautiful swimming pool, a snack shack with freshly prepared food and drink, a four-hole pitch and put golf course, two tennis courts, a half-court basketball court, jungle gym and a recreation room with books, ping-pong, and a shuffle board court.

Completely renovated and decorated by an award winning designer, Calypso Condo (C-2) was designed to meet the needs of a wide clientele. For the adults, there is a sophisticated decor with multiple original works of art in every room, two master suites, a fully stocked bar, 40" HD TV, MP3 compatible stereo system, surge protector and WiFi for your computer, and a gas BBQ. For families with children, there is an extensive array of sports equipment and sand toys, a hand made three story doll house, family board games and a comprehensive video library of children's movies with its separate TV set. For gamers there is a large assortment of discs for Nintendo Wii. The separate but attached storage room is suitable for storing scuba gear and suitcases and contains sports equipment for all the family including snorkeling equipment, tennis rackets and two sets of golf clubs.

The main floor master bedroom with its magnificent floor-to-ceiling hand carved mirror and luxurious king size bedding is perfect for a couple or honeymooners. It opens directly onto the screened veranda where vacation memories will be created watching the swaying palms and listening to the surf. The two adjacent bathrooms provide his and hers privacy with lots of room to spread out.

The upstairs master bedroom with queen bed is perfect for adults that would like to set themselves off from the rest of the family. It has its own TV and DVD player, individual air conditioning (in addition to the central air conditioning), en suite bath and a very large outdoor deck where one can watch the waves roll in or sit under the stars sipping an evening cocktail or just listen to the southing sounds of the surf.

The upstairs gallery has a pull-out sofa bed where two individuals can sleep and has a combination VHS/TV for playing the children's movies. The gorgeous plantation shutters set off the attached patio which contains the gas BBQ, table and chairs.

The downstairs guest room on the land side has two twin beds, a view of the landscaped grounds with the jungle beyond and is decorated in a jungle motif. All beds in the unit have foam toppers and all rooms have overhead fans and ensuite full baths. The living room and gallery fans are programmable and will adjust their speed according to the room temperature.

The great room is two stories high, has wall to wall windows and looks out on the screened veranda with the lush tropical landscaping and beach beyond. Even the veranda has an overhead fan to assure that the tropical breezes never stop flowing. It's just a short walk across the lawn to feel the warm waters of the Caribbean lapping at your feet and perhaps you'll see one of our resident mongooses on the way.

Gentle Winds is located on the exclusive north shore, half way between Christiansted and Cane Bay, home of the famous Wall at Cane Bay known throughout the world by diving enthusiasts. It is adjacent to Salt River Preserve where there are kayak tours at night to see the phosphorescence as well as day tours to see the wildlife and mangroves. It is just a ten minute drive to Christiansted where tours leave daily for Buck Island, a national underwater preserve where there is an underwater trail for snorkelers to follow and you will see large reef fish of a size rarely seen outside the protected waters of the preserve. It is a treat even for the most experienced divers. A glass bottom boat will take those who prefer not to go in the water.

To the east is the Buccaneer Hotel Golf Course located along the water with magnificent vistas and to the west is the Championship Robert Trent Jones Carambola Golf Course. The Divi Casino is located to the south east. There is horse back riding to the west and deep sea fishing is available just next door at Salt River Marina. There is a special event or activity almost every night of the week throughout the island. Go to our site listed for more infomation and pictures.
