“AMAZING: Prictures do not do it this Condo justice.”
Reviewed 21 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

I stayed at Calypso Condo February 5 - 19, 2017.
Located on the water at Gentle Winds, Calypso Condo totally exceeds your expectations. It's location is superb with 40 acres of beautifully manicured grounds complete with Par 3 golf course, tennis courts, basket ball court, and play areas for children. The beautiful pool is very large with flowering pots and plants everywhere. It is located adjacent to a gorgeous private sandy beach. There is also a snack shack that offers a delightful array of food and drinks daily.
Calypso Condo is furnished beautifully with views from all three spacious patios. From the minute you walk in the front door you feel like a guest in a lovely home.
It is fully equipped with everything you may need for a fabulous get away. We enjoyed several meals on the screened in patio off the living room. With all the amenities, one doesn't need to venture out, but if you do the sites and sounds of the island are close at hand.
The two weeks I spent at Calypso Condo were far to short.
I look forward to returning to this vacation paradise.

“A wonderful month at Calypso Condo on St. Croix.”
Reviewed 16 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

My husband and I stayed at Calypso Condo for the month of January. The whole experience was ideal. This condo is completely renovated and furnished as a lovely home not just a rental unit. It's immaculate and has everything needed for cooking and playing: snorkel equipment, tennis rackets, noodles and much more.
We had friends staying with us for a week and with two master bedrooms and baths there was great privacy. The third bedroom and bath would easily accommodate two more people.
Morning coffee on the upstairs master bedroom deck, breakfast and lunch on the veranda, and barbecues on the second upstairs deck were favorites. The views from each location were lovely. With the doors open and ceiling fans on we never felt the need to use the air-conditioning. The sun, temperature, trade winds, great local restaurants, salt water pool, and the sounds of the waves breaking on the beach complete this piece of paradise. We look forward to returning to Calypso Condo.

“Beautiful location and very comfortable accommodations!”

The condo was just as described, beautiful! Right on the beach, pool on the property, gorgeous grounds and very clean, comfortable accommodations. Everything went off without a hitch. Beautiful and safe condo, great for large families or groups of friends. All three rooms have its' own bathroom which was wonderful. The kitchen had everything you might need for cooking during your stay. Washer and dryer looked brand new. Three different balconies looked out onto the grounds and ocean. Storage room had pool floats and snorkeling gear for families to borrow. The owner seemed to have thought of everything. Free wi-fi, satellite TV, books, extra covers, towels and linens. Be sure to pack some of your own food from the states as groceries are about double of what they will cost you stateside. Wonderful family vacation!

“Beautiful Calypso Condo”
Reviewed 24 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We would highly recommend Calypso Condo to one and all. We have been in love with St. Croix, and with Gentle Winds for years now, and have stayed in various units throughout this lovely community. This condo exceeded all of our expectations. First of all, it is absolutely beautiful, painted in sunny gold tones, and decorated with stunning tropical art and furniture. The palm trees on both sides of the unit complete the tropical setting. Having the trees surrounding the condo adds the sound of birdsong to the other best sound on the island -- the sound of waves.
We were so impressed by how well-supplied this condo is in every respect, from the kitchenware to beach and pool toys. Everything in the unit feels very upscale, from the mahogany bar and granite countertops to the lovely china in the kitchen. Games, books, a super TV and DVD system make the place feel like home. Having stayed at other very nice condos at beautiful Gentle Winds, we can tell you that this one has been updated considerably; it is super comfortable, and a real treat to inhabit!
Barbara Flanagan (owner) has done a wonderful job with customer service, as well as with refurbishing and maintaining Calypso Condo. She always responded to questions and requests right away. She was not just prompt, but always very direct and pleasant in her communications with us. We felt that if we had experienced any problem, she would have addressed it immediately.
For those of you who have never stayed at Gentle Winds -- it has one of the best beaches on the island, with great snorkeling, swimming, and lunch at the Sandy Toes beach shack. it is also a very friendly community.
We can't imagine anyone not loving this place. Have fun!!!!

I'm so glad you enjoyed the tropical oil paintings throughout the unit. Most of them are done by a local artist, Nancy Byrnes. I really feel that they capture the feel of the island from the grazing goats to the swaying palm trees.

“Above and beyond expectations”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Calypso is a wonderful vacation home. The attention to detail is above and beyond! Our grandsons were in the upstairs loft and were ecstatic. Everything is so well thought out and organized. Coming in the front door and looking through the condo and out to the lawn and ocean is magical. So glad we stayed on St John first and saved the best for last. Our boys found other boys to play with and their activities included: swimming, shuffleboard, basketball, golf, tennis, hermit crab races on the ping pong table and watching movies at night. Our family had a delightful time! The island has a relaxed feel and after a few days we all agreed that Calypso was a spectacular choice for our stay. Barbara, the owner, did a great job communicating with us prior to and during our trip. Thanks for your hospitality Barbara.
