"What a magnificent home and a terrific area. The home has every convenience even Wi-Fi with beautiful views from every room. The beach facility is well stocked with snorkles, boards, even children beach activity toys. We ranged in age from 6 to 75 y.o. and couldn't find anything that didn't seem just perfect. Even the restaurants in the area are superb. The manager is friendly and helpful and available if needed."

"Beautiful property, great value, and wonderful stay on St. Kitts. This was our first time doing a rental and we plan on making this our future way of planning. The owners were amazingly helpful and we're thankful to have them guide us through our stay."

"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."

"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."
