Our stay at your home was wonderful. Beautiful weather the whole time. The condo was perfectly equipped. We made several long distance calls we're responsible for. Also, the last day we were there I dropped the coffee pot and it cracked. I took the pot from the other coffee maker above the fridge. Did not have enough time to replace it so please do.

Sorry about the delay in returning the keys. Have been ill since returning to the states

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to St. Croix and our stay at your condo. We ate most of our meals in the condo and found the kitchen to be fully equipped. There wasn't anything lacking in the way of dishes, utensils, etc. We found the large fan to be very useful in the evening. The grounds around Gentle Winds are incredible. The beach and pool were very well maintained. The snack shack was an added bonus.

Your place is lovely. We had a great time. The pool and beach very nice and we enjoyed them a lot. The house has almost everything any family could need. The beach amenities (chairs, bags, coolers) were nice to have. We were pleased that you had a pack-n-play and the highchair because it came in very handy with our toddler. We look forward to coming back in the future.

We are back in Michigan. 
We had the best time at Caribbean Breeze.
Everything was better than we hoped for.
We left the condo clean when we left.
Boys are asking when we can return.

Dear Kent & Dawn,

Our stay at Gentle Winds condo was wonderful. Your notes were perfect and we followed your directions. This was the first visit to the Virgin Islands. When we fully retire I would like to stay a month at a time!

The people were kind, the beach and the pool were picture perfect. We learned very quickly that you cannot drink and drive, the roads were too unstructured and required constant focus.

Everything appeared to work normally in the condo. We kept the A/C at 75 to 77. The condo was equipped with everything you needed. Caribbean Breeze was perfect. Thank you for your kindness,

Hi Kent & Dawn,
The condo was wonderful! By all accounts. We absolutely loved every moment there. It is perfectly located, fully equipped and has/d all we needed to have a wonderful relaxing vacation. Although we did not need to cook, (took the wife out for lunch & dinner every day to spare her cooking on the celebration of our 40th anniversary & her birthday) we noticed that there are all required utensils to make whatever meals required.

Thanks again for everything. We certainly would like to come back again in future.

God bless, Jan & Joy

Hi Kent & Dawn,

Just wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Caribbean Breeze. We loved St. Croix. It is truly beautiful and with so much to do, needed to remember to I am so glad I found your rental--it is so well equipped, beautifully decorated and in a great location. The beach is picturesque...we also loved the shuffle board and ping pong :) Hope we will get the chance to return.

I also wanted to give you a heads up that I will be putting the keys back in the mail to you tomorrow, so you should have them shortly. Please let me know when you receive them back.
Thanks again for sharing your lovely home.

The FYI packet and condo keys in advance made it very easy. Good idea! Directions to the condo were easy to follow. Skyline Car Rentals were easy to deal with also. Your condo is wonderful. "Very homey :)" We used the washer and dryer - they worked fine. Your assortment of pans is terrific. We cooked breakfast daily and a few dinners. All those seasonings! Yeah! Everything we needed - we located. Very well equipped. We did lose power for about 1-2 hours one evening - we used your oil lamps and it was very romantic. Beds were comfortable. The condo was very clean and well organized.

The resort is really nice - well kept. We've been to other resorts that were not as well kept. All people we spoke with very very friendly and helpful.

We love your Caribbean Breeze! Awesome view...

4/22 - 4/29, 2013

We had a fantastic trip. Our week had beautiful weather & the condo was a perfect fit for our family. Having the beach & pool just seconds away allowed us the flexibility to meet the chaotic needs of a two year old. We appreciated being able to get laundry done (reason - see above 2 yr old) and cook for ourselves. The quick repair of the kitchen drain was reassuring. There are a few burnt out bulbs you may want to get someone to replace (over the kitchen peninsula). Thanks for a great week!

April 6-13, 2013

   A lovely stay. Really great location - not too close and not too far from anywhere on the island.

   Were not sure if there was recycling so we just left bottles :).

   We all felt very much at home and appreciated how well equipped and welcoming everything - everyone was!

   Thanks for the cleanliness and rolling ocean waves - made for great sleeps!

Hi Kent, Thanks for the use of the condo - it was great. Sorry about the call for the master shower! I must've read your info sheet at least 7 times and somehow I "missed" the pull down instructions. I felt like an idiot after I looked at the sheet again!

Everything went well - the condo was very clean when we arrived. We cleaned the kitchen and laundry room before we left and left a nice tip for Jennifer. The second bathroom toilet has a tendency to run - I had to stay on the boys to make sure they "jiggled" the handle. (has been repaired) Other than that, everything was just fine.

Thanks again! Ted C.

12/6/12 - 12/18/12

You have a very nice condo, thank you for renting to us. Perfect location on the island to get to everything, but yet also in a great spot too. We had a great time!

The GPS recommendation was a huge help, especially coming/arriving at night. It also made getting around the island a breeze.

Overall had a great trip celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and hope to return.

Best regards,

Hello Kent - As I mentioned on the phone, we were delighted with the condo. It was very clean and well maintained. The array of kitchen utensils was an added bonus. The condo is extremely inviting and comfortable. Yvonne and I agreed that it was everything as advertised and more.

Hopefully we will return some time and we would definitely recommend Caribbean Breeze!

Hi Kent,
I wanted to touch base with you now that we're home.
The trip and stay at the condo was great. Gentle Winds is a very nice place. The
owners of units who were present were all very friendly and welcoming.
Everything in the unit was as we hoped.
A beautiful place and a great vacation.
The keys are on their way to you.

The condo, resort, and beach was absolutely beautiful.

We have already told several friends about your place and they are definitely interested in visiting.

Caribbean Breeze at Gentle Winds in St. Croix is a dream destination. The condo was easy to find, is comfortable, nicely furnished and provides a welcoming environment. The most stunning asset is the view from the unit of the ocean and beautiful grounds of Gentle Winds resort. Kent and Dawn go above and beyond with providing information and assistance. We enjoyed the island during off season visiting the historical, ecological and local sites. Driving on the left is no problem. Our adventurous sons, (ages 18 & 22) determined that the beach at GW is the best. Right out of a commercial! Snorkeling, swimming, relaxing on the beach and getting a bite from the beach shack bar provided all we needed just steps from the condo. We have stayed in vacation rentals in various locations for over 15 yrs and this has been one of our best experiences. We highly recommend Caribbean Breeze. Kudos to the Vreelands!

Hi- Just a note to let you know that we enjoyed our time in your condo at Gentle Winds. It's a lovely complex and your condo is so well equipped.

Outstanding, great condo, great location, we will do it again.

Sorry - dropped the key and it cracked, by week-end it broke off

PS bought a portable grill & left it there. If you don't want it, have cleaners take it (grill is still there under the stairs on 1st floor).

We loved "Gentle Winds" You've certainly found the perfect spot on wonderful St Croix. We loved the peaceful little swimming beach. Cane Bay was close and we enjoyed snorkeling there.

Had 3 excellent dinners - Waves at Cane Bay has a nice little "Grotto" down below, right on the water.

"Salud" - excellent meal & music.

Savant - Ate in the courtyard under the sails

Dear Kent,
CB's front door keys are enclosed as you instructed.

We enjoyed a great week on St. Croix and certainly enjoyed living in I-4 during that week. You have a lovely unit. The view of the sea and the hills is memorable. I believe we left the unit in as good or better shape than we found it, and, we found it quite ship shape. We appreciated how well equipped CB is. It was like stepping into someone's home, which it is.

We look forward to returning to Gentle Winds and Caribbean Breeze in the future. Meanwhile, if you have any questions let me know.

Kent and Dawn,

We’re back home and had a lovely time in St Croix; am sure we’ll continue to go back periodically.

The view from the condo is absolutely awesome.  We spent a lot of time on the balcony reading, relaxing, or simply watching the waves.  The new chairs out there are very comfortable.  The staff kept the beach in good shape and since occupancy was close to 30%, except for Thanksgiving week, the beach was never crowded.  The Beach Shack is putting out some very good meals and while Don is not Karen, he is very personable, very organized, a good cook, and really working to be successful.

The condo itself was clean and nicely furnished.  The cupboards holding the dishes and glassware were neat and orderly.

We never turned the air conditioner on and found it fairly comfortable; we like the fresh air and know how terribly expensive utilities are down there.

We very much enjoyed our stay in your condo and appreciate the opportunity to vacation there.

We will mail the keys back this afternoon.

Thanks again
Dwain and Karen

We will recommend your unit & may be back ourselves.

We really enjoyed the condo. The beach was great and not crowded which was a plus. The condo itself was well kept and clean.

Positives - Location!
                -Lots of towels, beach towels, spices, pool floats, zip lock bags, foil, etc. Also well stocked for families with small children (we didn'r need any of that but can appreciate it from when we did have them.)

Had a great time. Thanks for sharing your condo with us.

Our family had a fabulous trip to St. Croix, and really enjoyed staying at the Gentle Winds!  In fact, we had such a great trip that it has taken me extra time to reconnect with you, and I apologize for that. 
The unit, beach, pool, and location were just what we were looking for, and everyone there was very friendly and helpful.
Thank you again.  We hope to be able to stay with you again soon!

Hi Kent:
Just wanted to let you know that the keys to Caribbean Breeze condo are in the mail back to you (delayed a bit because we spent an additional 4 days on St. Croix at Divi Carina for family reunion/niece's wedding).
We had a wonderful time at the condo. Everything was perfect and just right for traveling with a toddler. The view is superb, we thoroughly enjoyed our time on the beach and at the snack bar (which I would recommend to any and all--Karen's salads are to die for) and were very grateful for the vast quantity of beach towels, snorkeling equipment, and sand toys on hand. Our 4 days at the Divi made us realize what a great location the condo has and how much nicer the water and waves are on that part of the island.
Our thanks again. We would cheerfully recommend your condo to everyone. It has been a pleasure dealing with you from beginning to end.
All best wishes,
Mary R.

We just got back to Virginia and wanted to tell you that we thoroughly enjoyed the condo and we will HIGHLY recommend Gentle Winds to all our friends. The couple who traveled with us loved it as much as we did.  This was our 7th trip to St Croix and we found the condo to be absolutely perfect for us; great location, very clean and well accessorized for cooking, and we met Karen at the bar and had fun chatting with her.
We stacked the linens on the beds and put the towels in the laundry basket by the washer and tidied up the condo. 
Kathy will be mailing the keys back.
Thanks much.

Awesome place. Very nice. Provided items that we did not expect. We did towels in laundry, but left a few, sorry. We landed at tail end of storm, radio saved us. Only thing I can think of is to run antenna up the wall, but we figured out a way to get reception. If I decided to do the Buck Island swim again, we will be back!


BTW: staff at Gentle Winds great people!

8/7/10 - 8/14/10

We really enjoyed our stay at the condo, the view, the beach, the pool, etc....We had no problems and would like to stay at Caribbean Breeze again on future visits to the island.

Wonderful condo and fantastic views. It was extremely convenient to the beach. Condo had absolutely everything one could need. Excellent guide books available to help navigate around the island and plan the trip. Location of condo was wonderful and we liked that it was away from the towns. Everyone we met at Gentle Winds was extremely kind and helpful. Overall, we had a wonderful experience at your condo and St. Croix. Thank you for being so easy to work with. In the future, we are hoping to return to St. Croix and would definitely stay at your condo again! Thanks for helping make this a memorable vacation!!!

We had an awesome vacation. Wonderful view from the balcony. Having beach towels & frozen mugs made the beach even better. The condo felt like home. Having water pressure in the shower is absolutely wonderful. The snorkeling was great on the beach. The information you provided was very useful. Thank you so much.

We had a great time. The condo was everything we needed and more. After our trip to Buck island with Captain Heinz, we developed a bit of a snorkeling bug. It was great that the condo had all the equipment we needed. We were able to snorkel for a few hours every day.

Once again, we had a wonderful time. The proximity to the condo beach was very convenient.

Hi Kent

We are safely back in Norway after 2 wonderful weeks. Even though it was a long trip for us it was worth it. The only thing my wife did not enjoy was the ride on Cape Air in the small twin engine plane.

We found the apartment well furnished and we found all we needed. We found all your information and instructions useful and complete.

The bottom line is that we had a great time and we may very well return one day.

Kind regards

The condo was very nice. We ended up leaving quite a bit of booze, water shoes, a small styro cooler, a radio & many other items to contribute to one's stay. It was nice to have used some of the stuff others left behind. Very Helpful.

All & All it was fabulous - Thank you for sharing your condo-

Thank you so much! We had a fabulous week - our best vacation by far! The condo was fantastic. It was very clean, modern and furnished with everything we needed. The information you provided about the sites to see and recommendations about what to see and restaurants were extremely helpful. It is obvious that you want your guests to have a wonderful experience. St. Croix is absolutely gorgeous and we already miss that fabulous view of the beach and ocean as we sat on the balcony each morning. Caribbean Breeze on St. Croix will be our recommendation for an unforgettable vacation to everyone we know.
