"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."

"Every vacation before and after this one will have very little chance of measuring up to this week. This cottage is so great - super facility and tremendous views. No Mosquitos, always a nice breeze and never needed to turn the AC on. Two trips into town would be enough, enough restaurants and beaches (good snorkeling)within walking distance. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else but the "Ocean Song Cottage" when we return to St. kitts."

"The views and privacy can't be beat!! The master bedroom is a dream come true. We left the French doors opened and fell asleep to a Caribbean lullaby of waves and breeze. You will not believe it!
The house was clean! I've rented places before and was disgusted by the dirt. This place was clean!
Things the pictures don't show: the pool has a wonderful ledge all the way around it for sitting on, you can see the ocean looking both ways standing on the deck and the way the whole house opens up with French doors to the outside.
MUST DO: Pereria Tour!! Great time. Snorkeling at the Reggae bar! Watch monkeys cross the road from the pool! Yoga in the little hut facing the ocean!
My ONLY complaint is that we really got into the Reggae spirit at the wonderful Reggae bar nearby and wanted to listen to some music at the house. The electronics equipment would not play any DVDs and the iPod hookup player didn't work either. There is no way to listen to music except the earplugs you bring.
And I really don't know what a tea cozy is..."

"My parents were coming to St. Kitts for business/vacation. My father, a veterinarian, was lecturing at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, while my mother needed a nice break from her daily hard working life back in Oregon. It's safe to say, a perfect vacation was needed. I happen to be a student at Ross University on the island, so the pressure was on me as I was in charge of finding them a place to stay. I can say with complete confidence, that not only is this Villa in all aspects perfect, but I strongly suggest this is THE ONLY place to stay. Look no further, besides other properties from the owner. I boldly state that without this particular owner, my parents vacation wouldn't have been nearly as amazing. The owner is one of the nicest people I have ever met and because of her, my parents got that perfect vacation they deserved. She keeps herself readily available with very fast response times to keep you well informed. She even went out of her way to introduce me to some locals so that I could plan entertainment and have someone available to take care of us during our stay. The Villa will leave you speechless. My parents literally shit their pants from the breath taking views this property has to offer. I gave this owner, property and overall vacation's experience 5/5 stars. This was a very easy decision. You will rate the same after your perfect stay during your perfect vacation."
