"There is much to say about this property, and about Bill, the owner!
~ First, let's start with Bill. He is wonderful. Beyond wonderful, actually. I have rented properties all over the world, for many years, and I have never encountered a property owner as responsive and thorough as he is. Truly, working with him was an outstanding experience. No question is too small, and he even provided a ton of invaluable info about St. Kitts that I didn't request, once he found out that my daughter would be living there to attend Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. He answered questions while I was in St. Kitts, too, including questions about where to find things on the island. His property manager, Phyllis, is a doll, and was also easy to reach when I had a minor issue with the internet following a power outage that affected much of Frigate Bay.
~ I stayed in Bougainvillea, the lower unit. However, once my upstairs neighbors checked out, I emailed Bill and asked for permission to peek at the upstairs unit, so I could have an idea what it looked like for future rentals. Both units are clean and quite comfortable. I was traveling on my own, but could easily fit another person or two in the unit with me and not feel crowded. The units aren't fancy, but they're homey and sweet, and the bed was super comfortable!
~ Here's the thing to know. You will absolutely not find a better view on the island! I drove all over the place, and in doing so, saw many of the condo complexes I'd considered before renting Bill's unit. And yes, they had water views, but in Bill's unit (either one of them), you are ON the water. There is nothing between you and the water but a path to the private gazebo. The view is what makes the place -- it is to die for. Far better than the Marriott's view or the Timothy Beach Hotel's view. It is perfection.
~ Frigate Bay is truly the place to be. My daughter is at Ross, which is about a 15 minute drive away, but I'm SO glad I stayed in Frigate Bay! It's family friendly, beautiful, and completely safe. (As a single woman traveling alone, I never once felt unsafe in this property!)
~ I rented a car (from Bullseye). It is a bit tricky to find this unit the first time -- because it's tucked away and private! But by following Bill's maps, I found it and once I knew where it was, it was a breeze to get to. Driving around the island is quite easy and fun!
~ Favorite restaurant: Bombay Blues (opposite the Marriott). Fab Indian food."
