Calypso Condo is located at Gentle Winds which has been ranked #1 by TripAdvisor based on travelers' reviews in St. Croix and is located directly on the beach. We just learned that Burt Lancaster stayed in our unit the entire time he made The Island of Dr. Moreau. Honeymooners, couples, and families alike will enjoy the amenities at Calypso Condo, a three bedroom, three bath unit on two levels with two master suites and cathedral ceilings. It is located on the second floor allowing guests to open all the screened floor-to-ceiling windows to capture the Trade Winds blowing through and allowing the sound of the surf to lull you to sleep.

Great location, great amenities, pool and beach are awesome, snack bar at the pool (limited hours when we were here but still very convenient), grounds are well maintained and large enough for exercising (running or walking). Condo is well maintained, tastefully decorated, very well equipped kitchen. Most well equipped kitchen I have ever experienced at a rental. Loads of items...

Management response:

Glad you could enjoy the floats and coolers. I try to keep the kitchen as fully stocked as we do here at home; for example, waffle maker, cappuccino maker, mixer, blender, etc.
