Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Just relocated to Southern California to spend time with our grandchildren, while continuing to work full time. Held professional careers in northern VA and to escape the business, we head to relax in the Caribbean. Heidi served as a Peace Corps Volunteer shortly after college and then later, Alan and Heidi 'tied the knot' on the veranda of the Golden Lemon Inn. St Kitts holds a special place in the hearts of the King family!

Why the Owner Chose Saint John Capisterre, Saint Kitts and Nevis:
The Kings hold sacred the West Indian people, lifestyle, and cuisine. When staying at The King's Retreat you will be recharged and refreshed while enjoying this ocean front property! At the same time, if you wish, you have the opportunity to experience the authenticity of island living and become immersed in the village life.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We love that you are interested in our villa as your vacation destination. We have guests and family that frequent annually. We have guests that cross the Atlantic and stay for six weeks to enjoy God's natural beauty. We will roll out the welcome mat for you before you arrive and help you plan your destination, if you desire. We have friends that will instantly make you feel at home. We want you to fall in love with The King's Retreat, the village, and the Kittitian people the way that we have! Whether you want a intimate get away, a fun filled family vacation, or prefer to be a cast away while you read novels or write your memoirs, or go limin' on every scenic beach throughout the island, we want you to make our villa your villa. We promise it will be an experience you will never forget!
