This two-bed, two bath condo stands in a spacious, breezy five acre communal garden that leads right onto the ocean shore where the surf crashes and dawn breaks. You look down from the spacious balcony onto the nearby communal pool and out through palms and casuarinas trees to the sea. There is a large balcony where birds come to be fed and you can relax and read after swimming, golf or exploring. The centre of the garden has shady sitting areas and a barbecue where you can grill the catch of the day - or carry your coffee fifty yards to the gazebo overlooking the wide, wild, romantic beach.
The development is tranquil and, being over twenty years old, enjoys mature gardens and much more space than is often the case with newer properties. Neighboring condos do not overlook you, but the inhabitants are friendly! It is well maintained with an excellent, conscientious management team (office hours) to look after you. Laundry facilities are on site, are communal and coin-operated.
The condo itself consists of two double bedrooms with A/C and ceiling fan - though from Dec-March the sea breeze is often enough to keep you comfortable at night. Each bedroom has an en suite bathroom with bath, shower and loo, with vanity units in the bedrooms. The living space is over 30 feet long with dining area and sitting area separated by a kitchen with breakfast bar. That wonderful sun streams in every morning and the kingbirds twitter from the highest boughs, where monkeys sometimes chatter and hide.

We fell in love with St Kitts because it's a wonderful, atmospheric, old-fashioned island where you can enjoy traditional Caribbean lifestyle in tranquil surroundings while the waves crash and the clouds sail majestically across the lush mountain tops. Education is valued here, and there are many historic sites to explore as well as fabulous beaches. The island's careful development plan has ensured that the integrity of the main part of the island has been unsullied by inappropriate building, and at the island's heart is a mountain range covered with rainforest.
The garden at Island Paradise is a huge plus - five acres of mature trees and flowers right on the ocean's shore. The friendly and helpful office staff always make sure we are comfortable. And the condo itself, all on one level, with two en-suite bathrooms and right next to the pool, is incredibly convenient. Our huge terrace is a great place to chill out. PJ's Italian restaurant is just a step away and right next to Island Paradise we have a mini supermarket, wine shop and internet cafe. Walking along the Atlantic beach (at the bottom of the garden) is always a thrill, and the Caribbean beach is only a ten minute stroll away. And if you like golf, well... we're almost on the green! There's a cab rank outside the property so you don't even need to rent a car. But if you do want that independence, we recommend Bullseye Auto Rental - service that second to none and with a really personal touch.
