About the property
- Condo630 sq. ft.
- Half Baths0
- Minimum Stay7 nights
2 bedrooms, 1 bath (sleeps 3+1)
Condo overlooks the Caribbean Sea and beaches of Frigate Bay with nothing to block the view. Private gazebo, and this is the only condo in the development with a path to the ocean. Private, detached laundry shed and gardens, 2 private parking places. Condo has studio bedroom with kitchenette and separate bedroom with trundle bed (single bed above, pull-out bed from below), suitable for couple plus one adult; or couple plus two younger children.
The Horizons Villas development is located on the Caribbean side of Frigate Bay (the ocean side of St. Kitts is generally too violent for swimming). It’s an easy 5-minute walk along the water or short drive of less than five minutes to the best beach bars, restaurants and swimming in St. Kitts. Marshall’s restaurant, considered one of the top 5 restaurants on the Island, is located on the top level.
Although technically a “condo” located in the beautiful Horizons Villas development, there is no condominium association here, and therefore no condo rules to concern you. This will be your own private residence, similar to a villa, and how you choose to spend your time will not upset anyone. The condo is located at the very end of a road at the very bottom of the 3-level Resort development, and you have an un-restricted view of the sea to the south and west; total privacy from the rest of the development; and the only sounds you will hear are soft waves breaking on the shore and birds singing in the trees. If you want 'romantic,' this is it.
Unit comes with a six-pack of beer, six-pack of regular or diet coke, and a bottle of good rum.

Our stay at Buena Vista was form March 25th - April 1st. We were so sad to leave this beautiful little paradise with its sweeping views and sounds of the waves hitting the shore. It is just what you hope for when booking a place to stay on the island. We were greeted on the balcony each morning by a pair of songbirds looking for bread crumbs. One day a monkey sat on the balcony railing while a small lizard darted under my foot. The villa is private and peaceful and so, so relaxing. We didn't need the air conditioning; we just fell asleep to the sound of the ocean. Beware of Sunday nights however, when the music from the strip finds its way up to your balcony. We had to close the glass doors that night! Bill & Simone have done a great job of anticipating everything you might need, and it is all there. Everything works and the unit was quite comfortable and pretty too! We spent several hours sitting in the gazebo watching the pelicans glide by. The path to the water is steep but quite manageable. We didn't swim right there, because the rocks looked too slippery, but in a matter of minutes we were swimming in the warm waters of South Frigate Bay. The best thing about our wonderful vacation was staying here. When you have a place like this to call home, you don't really need to go out much!
A little piece of paradise.
We've just returned to sub-zero temperatures, after three full weeks at Buena Vista, and re-adjustment has been challenging, to say the least! Bill's willingness to answer questions before we arrived in St. Kitts had us well prepared, and his directions and grocery shopping suggestions made the transition to Island life very easy. Our first impressions of the apartment were most favourable, and as other reviewers have noted, the view from the balcony is nothing less than spectacular. The amenities are more than adequate, the fans kept us very comfortable, without the need to resort to air-conditioning, the king-sized bed provided the best sleeps we've had in months, and access to the laundry facilities was a real bonus.
Our daily routine started with an easy scramble down to the rocky beach, and a short walk to the sandy expanse of Frigate Bay, for a morning swim. Before our arrival, Bill had suggested renting a car for the full extent of our stay, and we were most glad that he did. We were able to visit all of the landmarks on the island, as well as making regular trips to Cockleshell Bay, and a day excursion to Nevis. Grocery shopping was also no problem, although we limited our evening meals at home, as the variety of reasonably-priced beach bar/restaurants on Frigate Bay was more than enough to satisfy us. There are plenty of nearby high-end restaurants, but that sort of dining was not in our plans for this trip.
There is not a single traffic-light on the island, the people are friendly and relaxed, and life in general is easy-going .. the perfect recipe for a genuine holiday. In all, we felt most fortunate to have chosen to visit St. Kitts, and doubly lucky to have connected with Bill, and to have been able to stay at Buena Vista. It was truly a memorable holiday!
We stayed in Bill's condo from August 6-13. The condo and amenities are exactly as described. It has to have one of the best views on the island...and I saw most of them. We booked at the last minute and Bill was very responsive in having everything ready for us when we arrived. Make sure you rent a car as there's lots to see.
Great views and close to South Frigate beach!
We rented Bougainvillea for a week in March of this year. It was perfect! Bill and Simone his property manager were really helpful and Bill gave us a great guide to the best beach bars and restaurants on the island. (Shipwreck is a personal favourite.)
We really enjoyed the central location and the proximity to the beach. The view is spectacular even from the lower unit, and the constant breeze off the ocean and sound of the waves was fantastic. We didn't need to use the air conditioning at all, and slept with the doors open at night.
The suite is great for a couple and felt really private. I loved being able to walk out directly from our apartment to the grassy lawn out front. In fact, we ate most of our breakfasts outside on the lawn! I think this feature was what made us prefer Bougainvillea. It also allowed us easy access to the gazebo, which is a great spot for reading or a cold drink at the end of the day.
The walk to the beach only takes a few minutes and we had no problem navigating our way there and back many times, even at night (although the full moon helped light our way).
The king size bed was really comfortable and the bathroom had great water pressure. The unit came equipped with lots of towels and linens as well which was great.
I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Bill!
Stunning Views - clean, affordable, and private
We rented both the upper and lower units from Bill and loved having the entire space completely to ourselves. The gazebo is so private and has such beautiful views a picture does not even capture it. The lower unit was quieter with a shady porch and the upper unit had a sunny porch and noticed a little activity from the neighbors. Both had wonderful views to ocean. We would happily rent these units again. Everything was as stated, clean and affordable. We also had good experiences with Bullseye Car Rental and all the restaurants we visited (Rock Lobster, Marshall's, Cathy's BBQ, Reggae Beach, SpratNet, Bombay Blues, etc). We were surprised by how spectacular the fort is - well worth the drive !! We enjoyed both populated beaches and beaches with few others. Many beaches have strong currents which are not ideal for small children. We also learned the best fruits and vegetables are available at the central farmers market on Saturday mornings (not at grocery stores). We visited Nevis for a day and truly enjoyed the botanical gardens.
