This two-bed, two bath condo stands in a spacious, breezy five acre communal garden that leads right onto the ocean shore where the surf crashes and dawn breaks. You look down from the spacious balcony onto the nearby communal pool and out through palms and casuarinas trees to the sea. There is a large balcony where birds come to be fed and you can relax and read after swimming, golf or exploring. The centre of the garden has shady sitting areas and a barbecue where you can grill the catch of the day - or carry your coffee fifty yards to the gazebo overlooking the wide, wild, romantic beach.
The development is tranquil and, being over twenty years old, enjoys mature gardens and much more space than is often the case with newer properties. Neighboring condos do not overlook you, but the inhabitants are friendly! It is well maintained with an excellent, conscientious management team (office hours) to look after you. Laundry facilities are on site, are communal and coin-operated.
The condo itself consists of two double bedrooms with A/C and ceiling fan - though from Dec-March the sea breeze is often enough to keep you comfortable at night. Each bedroom has an en suite bathroom with bath, shower and loo, with vanity units in the bedrooms. The living space is over 30 feet long with dining area and sitting area separated by a kitchen with breakfast bar. That wonderful sun streams in every morning and the kingbirds twitter from the highest boughs, where monkeys sometimes chatter and hide.

We fell in love with St Kitts because it's a wonderful, atmospheric, old-fashioned island where you can enjoy traditional Caribbean lifestyle in tranquil surroundings while the waves crash and the clouds sail majestically across the lush mountain tops. Education is valued here, and there are many historic sites to explore as well as fabulous beaches. The island's careful development plan has ensured that the integrity of the main part of the island has been unsullied by inappropriate building, and at the island's heart is a mountain range covered with rainforest.
The garden at Island Paradise is a huge plus - five acres of mature trees and flowers right on the ocean's shore. The friendly and helpful office staff always make sure we are comfortable. And the condo itself, all on one level, with two en-suite bathrooms and right next to the pool, is incredibly convenient. Our huge terrace is a great place to chill out. PJ's Italian restaurant is just a step away and right next to Island Paradise we have a mini supermarket, wine shop and internet cafe. Walking along the Atlantic beach (at the bottom of the garden) is always a thrill, and the Caribbean beach is only a ten minute stroll away. And if you like golf, well... we're almost on the green! There's a cab rank outside the property so you don't even need to rent a car. But if you do want that independence, we recommend Bullseye Auto Rental - service that second to none and with a really personal touch.

The condo met our expectations and needs. Comfortable and basically had what we needed. We were there with our son and granddaughter and the location to the pool from the condo #15C was excellent. Quite but could hear the waves coming in and being able to walk to restaurants and coffee shops along with the convenience store "Ram's" was great. We did have a car, but if not being able to walk was wonderful. Office personnel very helpful and having laundry facilities at the resort was nice. Our suggestion was to maybe get a floor fan for the living area to move the air - less costly then another ceiling fan. The air was great at night for sleeping as well. The grounds were kept up very well. Retaining wall is replaced and the gazebo by the ocean is very relaxing.
We will be back and hopefully will be able to rent this on our next trip. Thank you Sue for the condo and info on it.
The apartment was bright, colourful and very comfortable. It was so peaceful, quiet and had everything we needed and more. The pool and grounds were lovely and it was handy to everything. The Italian restaurant out the front was just like being in Italy, very enjoyable. Over all I would highly recommend it 😁
We loved our stay at this Condo Complex and our unit, 15C was very comfortable. The condo had a functional kitchen and because we were there during some very warm weather the air conditioners were certainly used and worked well. The only thing we would suggest is some hooks in the bedroom and bathroom for hanging towels and other things. We did use the kitchen and made some meals and found most of everything we needed. We loved that the swimming pool was just steps away and very inviting everyday. The grounds were kept so nice and the view from our balcony was great! The beach area was hard to get to because of storms that washed part of the wall but was being repaired when we were there. Jackie the Manager and Jesse were so nice and helpful. A very convenient area with the coffee shop Rituals so close with great food and Ram's the grocery store just steps away. We did try the Italian restaurant but were not impressed and price too high for what you get. To get a taxi was also steps away and all our taxi drivers were so nice and informative. This was our first time to the island and my husband was working with a company in Basseterre. We loved this island with friendly people, fantastic food, and beautiful scenery! We experienced the Lobster fest at Cockle shell beach, enjoyed the capital of Basseterre and of course just loved the island of Nevis. Definitely have to experience Pinney beach on the island of Nevis right in front of the Sunshine Bar & Grill which was fantastic. We would definitely come back and stay at Island Paradise and we thank you Sue for your quick communication, providing great info and to share your home away from home condo! Hopefully next year!
We loved the "Island Paradise" Condo Complex" and enjoyed very much the stay at unit 15/C. The first moment we moved in it was like being at home. It is a friendly place, with excellent room arrangements, perfect fans and air condition; functional kitchen, great dining area and relaxing atmosphere.
The swimming pool was spotless and inviting ...we enjoyed it every day. Colorful palms and flowers. Jackie the Manager and her daughter Jesse were ready to help in every situation. Few people living there permanently were friendly; time by time we enjoyed their company.
The weather cooperated very well. One day only the skies were overcast but we loved the tropical rain.
With sunshine returning the birds continued their lovely overtures. From the balcony we listened to calming
sounds of the Atlantic Ocean waves. We intend to return in future.
The property has exactly what you need to relax. Close to shops and restaurants.
Comfortable to come home to after a long day of activities. The property management is accessible but not in the way of your vacation.
I was travelling to St Kitts for the first time with my husband and our 2 young children. Primary on my mind were safety, well equipped kitchen (we have some dietary restrictions in the family), easy access to a grocery store, transportation, access to laundry, walking distance to get to a sea view in addition to the usual cleanliness etc.
I have to say - this condo met all my criteria and it did not take us very long to get comfortable in our home base. It seemed very safe, I saw a police patrol many times along the road and we returned several times late at night after games and no issues. The house is secured with burglar bars and all windows close tightly, so felt good right on the first day. Ram's Express is a minute walk away to get any supplies forgotten or any supplies for a quick meal/breakfast/snacks etc. Nice restaurant options next door when you are too tired to go farther. I liked the fact it was a complex and well maintained (Jackie the manager is available round the clock if there are any issues). My kids loved the pool. We chose not to drive there (being from the US, we are not used to the right side drive) - having a taxi rank right opposite was great. The kitchen is very well equipped and I had no trouble getting some quick meals together. The A/C in the bedrooms was really nice on hot days when you just decided to stay home and not venture out. Lots of clean towels for daily use or the beach or pool came in handy. Community laundry room was clean and we used that once. What I did not expect -
1) Seaview - The views from the balcony was great! Beautiful seaviews and breeze. I would walk up the garden in the morning for viewing the Atlantic sunrise - one of the most breathtaking moments of my life.
2) Prepaid phone - a handy cellphone that is at the condo which I topped up at Rams and could use for local calls and even took it out in case I needed to call for a taxi.
3) Sue - very prompt with answers and did everything possible to make sure our stay was comfortable, even referring a friend to help me with my numerous local questions. All the information and pictures provided are absolutely accurate to the detail.
4) Wifi - a pretty nice wifi connection
We had a lovely time at St Kitts, I can't think of anything on the negative. If you are looking for a fancy luxury accomodation (I was not) this is not the place for you. If you are looking for great value for money and comfortable functional home base, it would the best option.
Frigate Bay is a peninsula where two oceans meet. There are condos, restaurants, cafes, beach shacks, a golf course, a saltwater lake with many birds, and thickly wooded hillsides. All of these are within a level walk. A car gives you absolute freedom of an enchanting and unspoilt island.
