About Penny

Gary was born and raised on St. Kitts. He grew up fishing, camping and spending time in the kitchen at his family's hotel. Cooking remained his passion throughout the years and, after attending St. Mary's University in Nova Scotia, he moved back to the island to pursue a culinary career. He has owned and operated several beachfront restaurants on the island and he is currently the proud owner of Reggae Beach Bar and Grill.

Mary was born and raised in Greenwood, SC. Growing up on a farm, she knew she wanted to become a veterinarian from a young age. After graduating from Clemson University, she enrolled at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) in St. Kitts. She graduated from RUSVM and moved back to the island of St. Kitts where she has been employed at RUSVM for over 7 years.

Mary and Gary Pereira met while she was attending veterinary school and they have been married since 2006. They welcomed a daughter, Ava Kate, in 2012.

They love 'living de island life' and 'rushing slowly'!

Penny purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Penny chose St. Kitts & Nevis

We have a 2 bedroom apartment located under our residence on the hillside above Turtle Beach. Our family and friends love to visit St Kitts so we built a comfortable apartment for them to stay. We love to show our guests a good time on St Kitts so we are now renting out our apartment for new visitors!

What makes this apartment unique

Our comfortable apartment is within steps to Turtle Beach which has one of the best snorkeling reefs on St Kitts. Within walking distance to Reggae Beach Bar & Grill where you are welcome to complimentary beach lounge chairs, umbrellas and snorkeling equipment. We will be very happy to recommend some great restaurants close by, as well as, offer insight to many local activities and day trips!

Very well equipped condo with a nice view of the water. Very clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our week stay! Warm personal welcome when we arrived. You could literally just take your clothes and arrive at the condo because it is so well stocked with everything you need. The property manager even made sure we had a few necessity food items stocked in the refrigerator when we arrived. Close to some great beaches such as The beach at Shipwreck and Carambola. Also had free beach chairs and umbrellas for us at the beach by Ragae Bar. Saw monkeys everyday coming in and out of the road to the condo and also saw them at Shipwreck which is very close. View of Nevis and the water is lovely from the deck of the condo. It is very private and relaxing. The dirt road to the condo is really rough and it is not well marked so not easy to find but the property manager will give you directions. The people of St. Kitts are very friendly and make you feel so welcomed. The owner also gives you a free phone for international calls and a free phone for local calls. We will definitely return and stay again!

Wonderful time at the Turtle Nest for Spring Break 2017

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five - three college students, two parents. The Turtle Nest was just the right size for us. The apartment offers a stunning view off the balcony to the ocean. You can spend a day on the chaise lounges on the balcony and just relax taking in the stunning view. A full kitchen, washer and dryer and two large bathrooms were perfect for our family. The family room is comfortable and if there was ever a need to stay in, there are plenty of TV channels and movies as well as board games.

You can take a quick walk to the beach which is small, or drive over to one of the many great beach options just minutes from the apartment - Reggae Beach Bar and Grill with chairs, umbrellas and water sports, Majors Bay and Cockleshell Beach.

St. Kitts combined with these accommodations provided a wonderful spring break for all of us. We will definitely be back to the Turtle's Nest and to St. Kitts.

The location is everything..

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect. Away from traffic and noise. 2 great beaches are within walking distance and more are just a few minute drive away. The front porch is amazing. So relaxing. Monkeys, 2 cats and chickens come visit every morning. The beds are comfortable. The owners go above and beyond to keep you comfortable. Even fresh groceries. Make sure you rent a 4X4. The roads are rough coming in and the driveway is very steep. But manageable. Don't hesitate. Book this rental.

So Relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

Location was perfect for our stay in St Kitts, remote yet close to best beaches on the island, Reggae Beach to be exact. Don't miss out on The Spicemill for Dinner, we got lucky and had a full moon over Nevis the night we ate there. Loved our view from the apartment, the cat and dog that came to visit daily and the fridge that was pretty much like home, stocked full of all the necessities! I would suggest renting a jeep or 4 wheel drive for the road out to the apartment, otherwise our stay could not have been more perfect, we so enjoyed St Kitts & Nevis, cant wait to come back and 'Live de Life' & 'Rush Slowly' - Thank you Mary and Gary for sharing your special place.

Vacation with Family

  • 5 of 5

The Turtle Nest at Turtle Beach was the perfect place to vacation! The apartment was decorated with bright colors and comfortable furniture. The kitchen was well stocked with all the necessary equipment to prepare meals during our stay. Refreshments were in the refrigerator when we arrived...so delightful! The bedrooms/bathrooms were large and comfortable. There were plenty of clean towels and sheets and a washer and dryer. But the very best part was the veranda. This is where we spent our time when we were at the apartment. The veranda was galley-like and extended the full length of the apartment. Panoramic views of the mountainous areas, lush trees, shrubs and the Carribean sea. Our time was totally spent without stress. We were within walking distance to the Reggae Bar and Grill owned by Gary and Mary, as well. Delicious fresh food served with a smile. You could spend the day out on the beach there. Lots of rentals to enjoy the water, sunbathing, swimming, etc. St. Kitts, also, has a lot of history to learn. We enjoyed a tour all around the island, very interesting. Mary and Gary were wonderful to us, very kind and caring, making our stay an amazing vacation! Now, we are back home, remembering our stay, and trying to live by the Reggae Bar & Grill's slogan, "Rush Slowly!", my friends. Awesome! Thank you!

Friends vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic place to stay! The rooms were great..very clean...beds very comfortable! The view from the porch was fantastic.......Atlantic and Caribbean could both be seen, as well as Nevis! As we lounged on the porch in the afternoons we saw plenty of monkeys about! The drive to the home was breath-taking.........beautiful views! The Reggae Bar was close enough to walk for a cold drink! I loved every aspect of the Turtle Nest and can't wait to get back of another visit! Kudos to Mary and Gary!
