Recent St. Kitts (St. Christopher) reviews
"This house was perfect for our family of five including our 13, 17 and 19-year old. I enjoyed having an oasis to retreat to after sight-seeing. I especially enjoyed the walks to spot monkeys. The bedrooms were spacious, clean and each had an en-suite bathroom. I thoroughly enjoyed the master's outdoor shower! We often enjoyed the afternoon in the infinity pool watching the sky gradually turn dark. The colors and view were amazing! I wish I was still relaxing in the hammock!"Guest: Gwen Date of Stay: November 2014 Review Submitted: December 2, 2014View listing
"We celebrated Christmas and New Year's at this villa in St. Kitts and it was absolutely amazing. Stunning views, swimming, amazing weather, tons to do, very friendly locals, great restaurants and food. We couldn't have asked for more. We had our children with us who were just as entertained and excited as we were to be there - swimming in the private villa pool, or hopping next door to the big infinity pool with million $ views. The villa is gorgeous, modern, very clean, very secure/safe with private driveway. There are many beaches around the island worth visiting and lots of water sports (including flyboarding, which is a blast!) Fishing, scuba, snorkel ... and Nevis is just a quick drive/ferry away! We will definitely be back soon!"Guest: Anne Date of Stay: January 2014 Review Submitted: April 5, 2014View listing
"We arrived in January from frigid temperatures in the north to the balmy breezes, sunny days and beautiful beaches. Our condo is clean, well equipped and has all the amenities. The combination of fans and wonderful breezes keep the unit cool and comfortable. There is air conditioning but we never used it during our stay. Breakfast on the deck overlooking the pool was always very pleasant and in the evening we'd watch the sunset from the 3rd floor deck. Although we did not use the pool, we could see that it was very well maintained as were the grounds. The people working on the grounds and the manager were all very nice and helpful. The beach is just a short walk from the condo. My husband and I used to walk to the beach at night to watch the waves and enjoy the wind coming off the ocean. The surf is fairly rough at this beach but it's just a short walk to the Carribbean side of the island where you can swim, snorkel and just enjoy beach time. There is much to do or if you want you can just do nothing. Paradise is a place for relaxing and rejuvenating. We certainly did our share of that when there and look forward to returning next year."Guest: Judy Brossmer Date of Stay: January 2014 Review Submitted: March 6, 2014View listing
"Having considered all the other properties in Turtle Beach, and then viewed them while we were there, I believe we made the best choice of those available for our requirements ( two couples celebrating a 25th Wedding Anniversary, although the property could easily accommodate 6). Location is central in the Turtle Beach area, with easy access, if steep (we did walk the 300 paces to and from the beach once, but it was simpler to just drive up and down the hill and park next to the beach when we wanted to). The access road is very bumpy and muddy at time, so you could risk your deposit with just a Sedan, therefore we found it far better in a Jeep from Bullseye. The double wide door onto the veranda is the star of this property, creating an open aspect, which provides the feeling of being outside, even when you are inside. The roof of the veranda, however also provides full sunshade during the day, so you can actually sit there and enjoy the view without roasting. The accommodation itself was pristine, with all the expected facilities, and enough cooking equipment for a three course meal should the need arise. Air-con was more than adequate. The location is a tadge remote, if you are wanting to travel into Basseterre every day, which in reality was only a 22 minute drive on the empty roads. But perfectly located for the best beaches, so at some point everybody visiting the Island, will have to make the up and down the peninsula trip, so it’s as broad as it’s long in reality. We did visit all the Island Beaches, and in the end divided the majority of our time between the Villa veranda in the morning, and the Shipwreck Bar on South Friars beach after lunch, as the best use of our all too limited days on the Island. All our team agreed that having viewed the Island as a whole, Turtle Beach was the best location for our requirements, and Villa Alamandra the premier spot on it. One of the major unmentioned facilities of Villa Alamandra, is the unrivalled support we received from the owners Buzz and Lisl, with my almost daily pre-holiday queries cheerfully and fully responded to. This enabled us to come fully planned and prepared, and to enjoy our preliminary ‘Sundowner’ 20 minutes after walking into the Villa for the first time, and to be in full holiday mode, with not a moment’s hesitation or deviation from enjoyment, from that time onwards. Thanks B&L, for letting us stay in your stunning home, and allow us to celebrate our 25th in real style and splendour."Guest: Chairman Tiger Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: November 4, 2014View listing
