  • Terrific get- A-Way

    "Location makes a difference. This little piece of paradise is a 3 minute walk to the sea wall where you can walk along the shore, watch the waves crash in and have a great view of the mountains. You're a stone's throw from a great wine and beverage shop and a nice stroll to the many funky beach bars that have live music and great food. When you decide to explore further, you will have access to taxi service or you may choose to walk a short distance to one of the islands largest resorts. There you will find casinos, shopping and restaurants. The unit is clean, well equipped, unique and intimate. You'll love sitting on the lanai or lying in bed listening to the waves crashing in. Ahhhhh, the ultimate space to relax in!"

  • Awesome home away from home.

    "We just got back from staying 8 nights in the cottage and we miss it so much already. It became our cozy little base camp for our St. Kitts and Nevis adventures the second we walked in the door. From the very first email correspondence from Penny, to shaking Ricky's hand and thanking him as he took off on his kayak before we left for home, this was an unbelievable experience. We booked this strictly based off of the VRBO reviews and pictures and everything exceeded our already high expectations. Ricky and Penny were awesome hosts, and everything they recommended, from the jeep rental (Bullseye) to where to catch a great sunset dinner (Salt Plage) to where to snorkel (right off their property!), were perfect. Awesome property, and even greater hosts. If we ever end up back to St. Kitts (hope hope), there is no way we would even think about staying anywhere else. Super clean, all kitchen amenities, tons of towels, outdoor shower(!), outside breakfast nook, little hammock shelter, herb garden, beautiful landscaping, off the beaten path and so quiet, access to the beachfront cottage, awesome bed with an unforgettable view...we wish we were in the cottage right now.... Thanks Ricky and Penny. You two make a lot of people in this world very happy. Job well done."

  • Relaxing place, awesome view, good location

    "2 weeks in St. Kitts of total relaxation and an awesome time. The suite (there are 2, hint: take Buena Vista), offers an awesome view of Frigate Bay and Nevis Peak. You can hear the splash of waves from the shore below, which makes it very relaxing. The suite is a fairly large studio, akin to a motel kitchenette suite. It more than suited our needs for the duration of our stay. What we truly loved from this studio was, that it was breezy, just open the patio door, a side window, the access door and it stayed cool (even in 30 degree weather). We even tried to sleep without the AC, but had to give up because of wild roosters in the nearby hills, they start singing at around 3:30AM and do not stop. Despite these roosters, the neighbourhood is quiet. We did not get to meet the owner in person, but he is genuinely interested in ensuring that your stay is an enjoyable one. He can easily be reached (maybe even too easy that the manager often got overlooked) and will provide complete information whenever requested. Also thanks to the manager and Rudy the handyman, they helped making our stay enjoyable. PROS: Roomy, breezy, quiet. Suite is reasonably well furnished. Big (new) fridge with a few goodies upon arrival. Washer and dryer proved useful (are reasonably new too) Reasonably close (on foot) to the South Frigate Bay watering holes CONS: Kitchen tools and utensils could use revamping and are limited. Recommendations for the upcoming traveller: Car is definitely needed (driving on the left of the road is fun!!!) Bring along some resealable plastic bags (ziploc type) of various sizes, well worth it. This suite is good for couples of all ages."

  • Beautiful Spot. Great Value.

    "You can read the superlatives in the other reviews. They are true. I just want to add some tips and perhaps some other helpful information for potential guests. This was our first trip to St. Kitts. We are frequent visitors to the islands (Caymans, Bahamas, BVI, Turks & Caicos, etc...) and stayed 2 of the past 4 years at a mountain side villa on Nevis on the Four Seasons property. Rest assured, this Turtle Beach villa is a far better value than the Four Seasons which is itself a pretty amazing place. One thing we loved was being on the windward side of the island yet being just minutes (by car) from the Caribbean thus having best best of both worlds. Best nearby restaurants/bars are Spice Mill (1 mile). Salt Plage is a new high-end beach bar with a yacht club vibe. Very upscale. Beautiful design. Located just north of the new marina. The sign faces north so it's hard to see coming from the villa and headed back toward the city. Maybe 3 miles away. Carabola beach club was a huge surprise. New and very very snazzy but all opened up to the sea. High end but not too pricey. Maybe 6 miles away...just north of Shipwreck bar. We read in Tripadvisor that when the cruise ships are in then Carabola can be a nightmare so perhaps call ahead. We had a great experience. Also fun but typical Caribbean beach bars are aforementioned Shipwreck and Reggae Beach Bar which is less than a mile from the villa. The personality of Reggae changes based on whether the taxis have dropped off a bunch of cruisers but we went there on several occasions and always had a good time. If you intend on snorkeling we suggest bring your own equipment. There is none at the house and the rentals are expensive and restrictive. We rented a 4x4 from Dwayne the property manager. He picked us up at the airport and filled our pantry as well. You MUST have a 4x4 to get around. The villa is in an isolated part of the island. You will be 20 minutes (over 2 mountains) from Basse Terre. This is a good thing. In no way is the location a negative but you must be able to be mobile. Relying on taxis would be expensive and cumbersome. An additional FYI, we had about a 4 hour gap between when we needed to be out of the villa (10 am.) and when we needed to be at the airport but we wanted to enjoy the day and be able to freshen up before getting on our plane. You can rent a room at the Marriott from 9 am to 6 pm for about $125 bucks. Or just get pool passes. Enjoy. Home is fantastic."
