"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!"
