  • You have got to see this for yourself because words (and pictures) do not do this place justice!

    "My wife & I, in addition to another couple, just returned from our trip to St John. I had never booked a home through VRBO before and we had never been to the USVI or the Caribbean, let alone to St John. I can honestly say that looking back; I would not change a thing. We booked Skyflower for multiple reasons and I am happy to report that it did not disappoint. From the amazing views, to the beautiful home, to the expansive decks; I fully expect that we will be back and when we do, I no longer need to look for another house to rent. This pleasant experience began when I first contacted the property manager through VRBO to inquire about renting Skyflower for a week. The property manager answered all of our questions and made the process of reserving this home very easy and painless. Since this was my first time renting a home through VRBO, I was a bit nervous about it too, but working with the property manager set me right at ease. His communications were very quick and helpful. When we finally arrived in St John, he met us in town, took us to the house, and was available our entire stay if needed. Once we got to the house, the views took our breath away; you can see quite a bit from this elevation. We all loved the layout of the home too. It provided both couples with great places to gather in the main living area or on the deck, but it also provided ample privacy in the separate master bedroom and in the second master suite on the lower level. This property would work well for a family with a couple of children too. I can only sing praises to Skyflower and our experience staying here. It was very clean, well designed, and well decorated too. It was also great to have access to a washer and dryer during our stay to wash bath towels & beach towels. If you decided to book this home, you will not regret it! My only suggestion would be to pack a few warm clothes in addition to your shorts and flip flops; it can get a bit chilly at night, especially with the breeze on top of Bordeaux Mountain. Personally, I was fine in a t-shirt and shorts, but my wife would usually throw on a light sweater at night along with a pair of sweat pants. Of course, you could always just hop in the hot tub too if you prefer!"

  • Perfect Getaway

    "Perfect for a couple, with maybe a small child. It is a like a studio apartment with a wonderful screened in porch as a living room. We saw two people in 11 days when sailboat anchored in "our" bay. Perfectly clean, with full bath and kitchen and outdoor shower as well. Kayaks on the beach with good snorkeling and boating. Beach is rocky with just enough to stretch out, but not so good walking. Miles of great sandy beaches nearby or with a half hour drive. For instance, go to Northside Beach Resort near Rock Sound for the day and have lunch with Rose. Our seventh, or eighth, visit to Eleuthera and our best. Met the owners, Keith and Sharon, and they are extraordinarily nice. Beautiful gardens filled with tropical plants."

  • Caribbean Paradise

    "This was a perfect get away trip. My husband and I love the ocean but hate the commercialism and crowds. I've worked for the airlines for 30 years and have survived many accommodations, but as long as there was a beach, we were still happy. THIS was wonderful. We had a private pool, private beach and mountain view just outside the back door. We have never had the ocean literally just steps away from our room. It is a little over an hour drive from San Juan airport in the small fishing village of Patillas. You can get fresh fish and seafood from the locals. The Spanish house has been renovated and beautifully decorated by the owners. However you will want to be outside the entire time. It has multiple outdoor dining areas such as a covered porch, pool cabana with restroom and outside bar and grill. It has a fully equipped kitchen with all the comforts of home.(actually better than home) Just stop along the way to pick up food, drinks and other necessities. The owners and staff go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need and that you enjoy your stay. Our only regret is that we didn't get to stay long enough."

  • Lovely place to stay

    "We had a lovely stay at Christmas Cottage. It was great to spend so much time outside cooking and relaxing. The cottage was well equipped, and Marcia, the owner, was very helpful when we got a flat tire driving up the dirt road from the cottage. St John was beautiful too with so many amazing beaches."

St. Kitts & Nevis Travel Tips

Getting to St. Kitts and Nevis Vacation Rentals

The primary airport for St. Kitts and Nevis is the Robert Llewellyn Bradshaw International Airport that is located on the island of St. Kitts. The airport has the facilities to accommodate commercial jumbo jets that operate on long-haul flights. There are regular commercial flights from major European cities such as Amsterdam and Paris. There are also frequent flights from Miami and New York City among other North America destinations. There is only a smaller regional airport on Nevis and most flights route via St. Kitts. Charter and scheduled flights operate daily on smaller aircraft between the two islands. There are also water taxis and ferries that operate on regular daily schedules, weather permitting.

As an alternative routing to get to Nevis, you may also consider routing via St. Maarten or Antigua. Both these destinations have regular flights on to Nevis as well as ferries that operate between the islands on a regular basis. Once on the islands, it is relatively easy to get around. Taxis provide transport to and from the airport and your vacation destination. Car rental is widely available and easy to organize. If you want to do some independent exploring, this will be your best transport option.

Visitors to St. Kitts and Nevis Villas

St. Kitts and Nevis are two islands that attract nature lovers and those who appreciate natural surroundings. The islands have a wealth of cultural attractions for those who enjoy local arts and crafts, and bargaining for souvenirs at the local markets and small shops. The beaches with their beautiful sands are favorite places to laze and catch a suntan. Sun lovers can enjoy their own private share of paradise.

Things to See and Do at St. Kitts and Nevis Resort Rentals

The islands of St. Kitts and Nevis are favored with consistent sea breezes as well as the northeasterly trade winds. This makes it a popular sailing destination in the Caribbean. Both islands have many beautiful beaches. Some are secluded coves where you can enjoy a private picnic. Others are lined with beach bars and restaurants, providing refreshments and entertainment.

St. Kitts and Nevis have interesting histories as they were discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493. It is reported that he sailed past the island but did not land. More than a century later, a group of British settlers decided to make the island their new home. Ruins of fortified walls from these early settlements can still be seen on the islands today. There are several museums which detail the interesting history but perhaps the best way to experience the culture is to meander down the streets seeking out the old colonial buildings, shop at the local markets, and explore the landscapes on horseback. For the more energetic, you can go mountain biking through the interior. There are also several hiking routes and nature trails you can explore.

Best Season to Visit Caribbean Vacation Rentals in St. Kitts and Nevis

In any given month, you can enjoy warm temperatures on St. Kitts and Nevis. The islands enjoy a warm tropical climate with rain that occurs throughout the year. Rain showers are generally brief and blow over quickly. The exception is during hurricane season when tropical storms bring strong winds and heavy rain that can last for several days. Tropical storms can occur any time between June and November and seem to occur most frequently in August. Humidity is relatively low compared to other Caribbean islands which makes it a more ideal vacation destination. Aside from the stormy season, it is a destination that can be visited all year-round. In general, the popular time of year for tourists is between December and March.
