Great house, wonderful pool and fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing few days at the Key House. Suzanne was very kind and attentive before and after the booking and it was easy to find the house once arrived on st Kitts. Chef waited for us at the house and was very helpful in arranging transportation and groceries. The house is located in a small village, right on the beach. Our kids loved the pool! It was great experience and we would highly recommend booking this house if you’re looking for a perfect hideaway on the beach!

Perfect 10 year anniversary getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the Key Stone house for a 10 year anniversary get away. This was our first time to St. Kitts....we had a blast and intend to return in 2018 with the family. The house was beautiful with AMAZING views. Chef was so accommodating and helpful. He really cared out our vacation and ensuring we were comfortable and happy. Suzanne was very responsive and friendly in all communications.

This house was a perfect get-away for us. We LOVED everything about this island, mostly the friendly people.

Cannot wait to return.

Amazing hidden gem away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at the KeyHouse and so wish we were still there!

We read all the reviews before booking and would say they are very accurate to describe this place. If you like to be away from the crowds and prefer the non-tourist parts of the island, this place will not disappoint!

Chef was a perfect host. He made us feel at home and checked in on us each day. He cooked us a meal which we all loved - including our teenagers - and took us for a hike on the mountain. It was great to hear more about the village and island. Our stay was so quiet and peaceful, we hardly saw or heard any other humans. Literally on the ocean, we loved listening to the crashing waves, watching all the amazing rainbows, gazing at the stars at night, sunning on the deck, and jumping in the pool when we were too hot - all without ever leaving our place! This is a very unique and amazing place.

Suzanne was very prompt and wonderful at answering all our questions when booking and traveling.

The tourism, larger grocery stores, and beaches are on the opposite side of the island. We rented a car so we could get around easily. We went to the southern beaches 2 different days - Cockleshell Beach is beautiful and Brimestone Fortress is worth a visit! - but we always enjoyed returning to our quiet hidden gem.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. I am glad you had such an amazing time and loved our little slice of heaven as much as we do. Chef really enjoyed showing you all around and cooking for you! The island has a lot to offer and we love being able to have our guests learn and explore the history and natural beauty of the island. We look forward to your return!

Key House didn't disappoint!

  • 4 of 5

We loved key house. I would have given 5 stars but there are some repairs that are needed but I understand they are on the way! That being said, the community at Dieppe Bay had a great vibe! We loved Chef and he made our stay wonderful. Took us on a hike to pick mangos and cooked for us a couple of nights. If we had a need, he met it and exceeded it. We will forever remember our adventures as key house!

Storybook Caribbean Villa

  • 5 of 5

After spending 7 nights on 3 other islands The Keyhouse on St. KITTS was the ultimate ending to an amazing Caribbean vacation. This house is everything the pictures portray and more. Our host, Chef and tour guide "Chef" made our stay even more special via the flower pedals paving our entrance, the personalized shopping and the incredible, in house, made to order, served on the ocean front patio, romantic seafood dinner for two. Serioysly, this was one place we decided to just enjoy for the day and the night. We left only for a couple hours to walk down to the beach front little restaurant for lunch. The rest of the day was spent soaking up the sun, taking in the views and swimming in the pool. Did I mention you can jump in the pool out of the house? Did you know you can loo out at the ocean while relaxing in the pool? Or even jump in the ocean then back in the pool and then relax on the sun deck all within a handful of steps. This place was simply magical. My wife and I laughed, relaxed, enjoyed every minite and even did our very 1st Facebook live post during sunset on the deck. Al the while Chef was there when we needed him and gone when we wanted our privacy. He led us on an a.m. hike to the bat caves and basically ensured we were comfortable and had everything we needed during our stay. Oh and Suzanne was the most responsive and informative VRBO / AirBNB owners I have ever had the pleasure to rent from. Her emails were always timely, informative and made me feel that this was the rightplace for us to stay.

In closing, and in the spirit of honesty, the Keyhouse is not located on the touristy side of the island. The drive to and up to the house may have some wondering about where exactly they ended up. There is some rather rough and rustic houses around but I can tell you from the heart that we had no problems, felt safe, walked the beach and frankly felt more in touch with the island then many of the other "resorts" we stayed at. For an adventurous couple or even small family this house will make you feel part of the Caribbean, or at least I k ow it left us feeling like we were a part of it and that my wife and I will definately be going back. Thank you so much Suzanne and Chef. The Keyhouse made memories I will cherish for a lifetime.

Sincerly,.Bill and Tana S. Bend, Oregon.

We give our best at KeyHouse so that each guest has a spectacular stay! We can't wait to meet you! John and I will hopefully be there when you return to KeyHouse! See you soon! Suzanne, John & Chef

Gem found on Treasure Island

  • 5 of 5

This villa is an absolutely amazing piece of real estate. Perched on the edge of the Carribean and Atlantic Oceans, the view defies description. The constant ocean breezes keep the deck and living area comfortable, and the soothing sounds drown out noise from nearby neighbors, dogs, etc.

While there we were visited by friendly birds (who needed reminders that they were not supposed to be in the kitchen), geckos and a pair of monkeys who leapt across the deck and sat on the roof for a bit.

The house is well furnished with a comfortable bed, plenty of clean towels and good cookware, utensils and lovely dishes,glasses, etc. This was one of the best-equipped rental kitchens I have seen so far.

Chef prepared a lovely dinner for us the first night and stopped by each morning and evening to make sure we were ok. He was a wealth of information about the village of Dieppe and St. Kitts. The owner, Suzanne, is very helpful and accommodating. She was not on St. Kitts while we were, but I hope to meet her in person some day!

There is pretty good snorkeling right off Dieppe beach and an EXCELLENT beach restaurant and bar (Arthur's), a 2 minute walk from the villa. Staff are very friendly and the food is really good, prices about $15-20 a plate. They are open noon to 5 p.m. Try Michelle's food for a great taste of local cuisine. She brings food in to the red bus stop in Dieppe around lunchtime, and is there until she sells out. We had enough to feed 5 people for about $23 total. Chicken, fish, rice, veggies, Johnny cakes, plantains.

You will want to hire a guide or driver or rent a car to explore St. Kitts and all there is to offer on this lovely island. Close by is the trailhead to Mt. Liamuiga, which we hiked with Royston ⭐️. You need to be in good physical shape for this! Also nearby are the lovely Caribella Batik/Romney Manor and Brimstone Hill Fortress. We preferred staying away from the more developed end of the island and enjoyed driving and exploring. The beaches are about a 30 or 40 minute drive, and there are plenty of them. Stay away from the beach bars (except Arthur's) on weekdays from about 10 to 3 pm if you don't like the cruise ship crowds. We loved coming " home" to our quiet town of Dieppe at the end of the day for a swim in the pool and dinner on the deck.

I highly recommend this villa for anyone with a sense of adventure who likes to explore off the beaten track while staying in the lap of luxury!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Jessica for such a lovely review of KeyHouse! I'm so happy you found our tropical paradise so comfortable. We try to have all the comforts of home available for our guests. Isn't it amazing that Dieppe Bay has so much history! Pirates with their Treasures must have been meandering about the village and port! You can almost picture how daily life would have been hundreds of years ago at the Cains plantation ruins that are just around the corner! It's such a historical site! Chef is such a gem and enjoys having guests to cook and care for! I will let him know how much you appreciated him! Hopefully we can get to meet each other when you return to KeyHouse! Until then, we'll send some sunshine your way!

About Suzanne & John

My husband John and I are disabled veterans. We have been happily married for 30 years. We love traveling. Keyhouse Villa is our favorite spot in the world! We have been landlords for over 20 years. It is important to us to have your stay memorable! We do our best to meet or exceed your expectations! We take pride in ownership!

Suzanne & John purchased this villa in 2006

Why Suzanne & John chose Dieppe Bay Town

We chose this property to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life! Dieppe Bay is a quaint fishing village with the most wonderful people! Enjoy this tranquil beach front Villa. Listen to the waves that sound like rain fall as the Atlantic swells hit the coral reef just off the deck! Enjoy the beautiful sunrise and sunsets from the deck!

What makes this villa unique

Our property is unique in that we have the benefits of the Atlantic Ocean to our right as well as the Caribbean Sea to our left! Our deck has the vantage point of canterlevering over the ocean where you can cast the fishing pole we have supplied and catch some Mahi-Mahi, Red Snapper or Gar. The local fisherman can help with that if you don't catch anything! Maybe some fresh Rock Lobster sounds good! They're right there in the reef!

The dormant volcano is directly behind us and is a great days hike into the rain forest!

We overlook the live reef with waves crashing over them in many different directions just a short short swim off our deck! There are 4 sets of snorkel gear , 3 boogie board and a fishing pole , walking sticks to hike the volcano, 2 portable beach sand chairs, 2 lounge chairs, 2 beach blankets, and a cooler for your use while staying with us!

We have been in American Way, American Airlines magazine, Vogue and Town and Country Magazines! Enjoy our little slice of paradise!

We have plantation shutter doors. The kitchen and dining are open air. Just doing dishes while looking at the reef feels luxurious! We supply containers and refrigerator for your food items.

The bedroom is Air Conditioned for your comfort although the temperature on St Kitts doesn't fluctuate too much, 80s to low 90s year round with an average of 84.
