    "This was the best vacation spot EVER! There were 6 of us. Three couples. The house was set up perfectly for all to have great space to spend together, and apart. Great kitchen for cooking meals when we wanted. The pool was delightful. Pepper was the greatest. He was spoiled by all of us. The decor was so beautiful. Antique furniture accents, all kinds of "boat" remnants that Rick found diving. There was tons of outdoor seating. Definitely stop at the IGA to pick up food. RAMS grocery was very limited on choices. We rented a 4-wheel drive from Bulls Eye which was perfect for the pot holes and dirt roads. We went together on a wonderful 6 hour sailing/snorkeling trip with Nevis Yatchs. Give them a call if you want a great trip with lots of Rum Punch. We had a blast. My husband and I love snorkeling. The water was warm, even in March! We went every day at the waterfront cottage. It was wonderful! Never saw so many fish snorkeling. Big sting ray, spotted sting rays. Puffer fish. And so nice to be able to walk to the beach! Rick and Penny provide gear if you don't have your own. Plenty of beach towels provided, too. No need to bring your own. Rick and Penny had great restaurant suggestions. Very relaxing and beautiful! Hope we can go back sometime soon!"

  • 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."

  • Fantastic Villa Alamandra Exceeds Expectations

    "Our family of 7 rented out the villa and we quickly realized we made the right decision. When that window wall opens all the way up to the veranda for the first time it takes your breath away. Along with the views the house is as advertised. Upscale but welcoming. We rented a car (a must) and after a day or so were able to navigate nicely around the island. We did all the touristy things(zip line, catamaran and train tour) but always the highlight of the day was retreating to our private veranda for cocktails and laughs. It lives up the billing. Owners communicated fast and thorough. We never got tired of monkey watching around Turtle Beach. Thanks for the opportunity to rent this amazing property and allow me to share it with my family."

  • 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."
