About Penny

Ricky and Penny built the first 4 Villas at Turtle Beach and have built several since. We kept the best property for ourselves and have built an ideal private island cottage on the grounds. Turtle Beach has over 20 villas now.

Penny purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Penny chose St. Kitts (St. Christopher)

Turtle Beach is located on the South East Peninsula of

St Kitts which we think is the best part of the island. You will NEVER hear the ongoing NOISE of cars/trucks/motorcycles or experience traffic like the Frigate Bay area. It's all about the sounds of the surf, bird song and nature! 5 minutes drive will take you to some of the islands BEST restaurants and more fabulous beaches. A QUICK water taxi to our neighbouring island of NEVIS will bring you to more great restaurants, history and charm of the Caribbean!

What makes this cottage unique

Peaceful garden cottage within walking distance to snorkelling, swimming and great restaurants!

More excellent dining options within 6 minutes drive and more beautiful beaches and hiking close by!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Penny,

I just wanted to say thank you for a great week in St. Kitts. The cottage was beautiful and more than we could have hoped for. We enjoyed meeting Ricky and appreciated all of his help. Thanks for the opportunity to spend some time in paradise!! We are trying to plan our next trip with our daughter and son in law and hope to stay in the big house.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at the cottage - a new thing for me to be gone that long. I actually learned to relax and let go! We picked the cottage because of the beautiful photos, location away from the cruisers, and access to the Beach house. The photos, as great as they are, don't do the cottage justice, because you can't hear the waves from the photos as you can in person! The views from the cottage and the patio were amazing. The Cottage was private, quiet and had all that we needed. Ricky and Penny were nearby and extremely helpful and fun to talk to. Access to the beach house lounge during the afternoon is a bonus that can't be overstated. The views, beach and snorkeling were awesome. I was able to see turtle, octopus and squid while snorkeling. Penny will give you many great recommendations for dining nearby. We rented a car which is a must to see all of the island. We also did a few sailing excursions, visited Nevis and mostly, relaxed at the beach. I highly recommend this rental

Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

The cottage had a gorgeous view of Nevis! Our family was staying in the ocean song villa which was very convenient. Just a short walk down to the beach house leads to your own private beach. It was very quiet and comfortable. We truly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend the villa as well as the cottage.

MAGICAL LITTLE COTTAGE WITH THE BEST VIEWS ON THE ISLAND

  • 5 of 5

This little gem is the perfect getaway. My husband and I used to go to school here on the island 7 years ago where we met, and we returned this week for our honeymoon. To us, this is the best area to stay, and the cottage itself if so beautiful and cozy. The view you wake up to from your bed can't be beat. Even though the cottage is right next to the main house, some how we never once heard the people staying next door. It is so quiet and relaxing to listen to the waves crashing at night. The house on the beach was a great bonus too! There are kayaks, snorkels, stand up paddle boards and so much more, it was a blast.

You 100% need a car here to explore everything St. Kitts has to offer. Our favorites for the daytime are Shipwreck (best conch fritters), Reggae Beach (BBCs, YUM!) and Belle Mont Farms on Kittitian Hill (Its on the other side of the island but worth the drive). We also recommend Marshall's for dinner (sea bass is unreal) and if you make it to Nevi's, a Killer Bee from Sunshine's Bar is a MUST!

I highly recommend this place as well as the other two rentals. Thanks for a wonderful honeymoon! -Jeff and Kelli

We're Coming Back Next Year

  • 5 of 5

Is there a better way to positively review a property and island, then to book next year's stay before you even leave?

Choosing St. Kitts as a destination and Ocean Song cottage was a bit by chance.. We were looking for a rental "in the Caribbean" and came upon this. Our luck couldn't have been better in both happening upon St. Kitts, and even better this cottage and Ricky and Penny as our hosts.

The scenery on St. Kitts, with the volcano and Nevis often in view is stunning. The water is typical Caribbean, clear and mostly calm on the leeward side of the island. Diving was very good, maybe not as spectacular as some dive spots in the Caribbean, but well worth it. Snorkeling right in front of the beach house was great with the large reef easily accessible. Turtles, octopus, eagle rays, and a wide variety of fish were seen on almost every excursion.

The cottage is great for two people with plenty of space, fabulous views, and very private. The deck, outside sitting areas, hammock were all much appreciated and used often. The outdoor shower was perfect and really spectacular at night with the stars. Ricky's collection of antique and other treasures from the around the island and under the water on every shelf really made the place feel like a home and gave a feeling of the history of the island. As others have mentioned, the sounds of the ocean and whistling frogs at night were magical. During the day, many sightings of hummingbirds and the resident monkeys. We also were adopted by a pair of Lesser Antillean Bullfinches. They are very tame and insistent, greeting us every morning. Just be careful as they enjoyed coming in and viewing "the other bird" in the bathroom mirror!

Everything would have been absolutely fine with just the cottage, but to say having the additonal use of the beach house really made the stay would be an understatement. It's a beautiful building with a spectacular (and well stocked) bar. The flow with the french doors open to the bar/kitchen area is wonderful. Sitting on the deck is pretty much the same as being on the beach. A relaxing place to enjoy a book, have lunch, take breaks between snorkeling and swims, hikes or other adventures. Ricky and Penny went out of their way to make us feel welcome there and it was much appreciated.

A highly recommend this rental.

I wish I was there now!!! We LOVED the cottage and the beautiful view and how quiet it is! We only had a few visitors... and most were monkeys! I think this was the most relaxing trip we have ever been on and we travel a lot. The decor in the cottage is terrific.. 100% my taste. The view from the bed is amazing! The host are wonderful and answered the many questions I had! I hope to be back one day!!
