Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Penny,

I just wanted to say thank you for a great week in St. Kitts. The cottage was beautiful and more than we could have hoped for. We enjoyed meeting Ricky and appreciated all of his help. Thanks for the opportunity to spend some time in paradise!! We are trying to plan our next trip with our daughter and son in law and hope to stay in the big house.

Ricky and Penny built the first 4 Villas at Turtle Beach and have built several since. We kept the best property for ourselves and have built an ideal private island cottage on the grounds. Turtle Beach has over 20 villas now.

Excellent cottage

  • 5 of 5
Wife and I just returned from one week stay for anniversary. Was more impressed with cottage then we anticipated. Owner was great to work with on reservation. Franklin was the best on making sure we had what we needed at cottage. We visited Marriott in St Kitts and Four Season Nevis and wife and I both agreed that we would not want to switch places with the cottage. View is fantastic. Has everything you could need in kitchen. Outdoor shower will make you wish you had one at home. Great stay.

Great place to stay

We had a wonderful week at the charming cottage, exceptional views and breeze. We loved the outside shower. St Kitts is a beautiful island to visit and tour around. Thanks Penny and Rick for all your help.

A Magical Holiday

  • 5 of 5
Ricky and Penny's cottage overlooking Turtle Beach is a real find for anyone who loves a quiet and comfortable adventure off the beaten track.

Firstly, the location is sublime. If you want to be away from the fray - and in St Kitts that means escaping from the hub of Frigate Bay and the usual cluster of international tourists - then this is a little bit of paradise.

Ricky and Penny have created a beautiful home from home. This is far from the usual identikit Caribbean design. The cottage is an absolute gem to discover. Beautifully designed and decorated (I have never showered in the rising sun or under the stars) you feel comfortable the moment you arrive. And we were fairly typical of your usual stressed-out townies in need of sleep and the warmth of the sun.

It needs to be stressed here that this is a place for couples. The cottage is a compact, airy studio (but with separate kitchen, bathroom, (one inside, and the shower out), study and the most beautiful outside terraces and gardens including a well stocked, healthy herb garden. Everything is provided and in particular Ricky and Penny supply comprehensive notes for visitors that cover everything you could possibly want to know about the property, the island, where to go, what to do - they were our guides from the start. Probably the best beach bar on the island 'The Reggae Beach Bar' is on the neighbouring beach and further up is a fab restaurant 'The Spice Mill'. There are also wonderful restaurants in Basseterre (the capital).

The extra bit of magic staying at the cottage is having access to what they call 'The Lounge'. We didn't quite understand this until we arrived but all visitors are free to use during the day the downstairs of a fantastic, beach front villa that has an Honesty bar, dining tables, kitchen, washing facilities and most of all, a grand-stand position right on Turtle Beach looking across to Nevis. Even though they own three properties we hardly met anyone at the Lounge while we were there (and we stayed two weeks) but when we did, it was lovely to meet other like-minded people from around the world.

We would absolutely recommend this cottage to anyone seeking any of the above. We read comments here before we arrived and there is an obvious consistency to the opinion that this is something special. Back in freezing England we can't stop taking about our magical time at Turtle Beach and in St Kitts & Nevis and we are already dreaming of our next visit.

Truly Miraculous

  • 5 of 5
I had to put 3/12/13 even though we stayed here in March of 2012. This is probably one of the most belated reviews ever, but we speak often of our honeymoon staying in Ricky & Penny's cottage. Truly a miracle occurred right out in front of the Beach House restaurant at Christophe Harbour. We were snorkelling one day from the beach and my brand new wedding ring just slipped off. Turns out it wasn't quite sized right. Anyway, we looked for hours and ended up calling Ricky. He came out the next day with a metal detector! What a huge help and...we found the ring 24 hours later! While the metal detector wasn't the key instrument it was the fact that Ricky took the time to come out and help us look that renewed my wife's spirit and drove her to keep looking. What a great thing for him to do!

Renting a car is a must in our opinion as it is quite remote, but the view and the overall setting was well worth it. We had a blast hanging around Cockleshell Beach most days, but occasionally combining a trip to Basseterre for supplies in with some sightseeing and visits to Brimstone Hill and Caribelle Batik. If you like just exploring and finding hidden gems then this place is for you. Lounging at Spice Mill was kind of our go to, but there were plenty of smaller beautiful beaches to discover very near to the cottage. The cottage was perfect for packing a picnic and heading off on an adventure.

And one more plug, Ricky's cousin Liz's snorkeling trip to Nevis was a blast and very nicely done. All in all, I highly recommend this cottage if only because you are dealing with first class people.

Perfect Island Retreat

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I traveled stayed at this particular house for a single night (as we were upgraded to the apartment on the beach for the first 6 nights of our vacation). Both places were beautiful, comfortable, and had all the amenities of an upscale resort. Ricky was an excellent host and made sure that we had everything we needed. I would recommend renting this property without any hesitation.

Great Honeymoon Spot!

  • 5 of 5
Ricky & Penny provided a wonderful setting for our first week as a married couple. Thanks for sharing your amazing home. It was the best vacation we have ever had. The place was so cozy (ideal for a couple, but I would not bring kids). They have other properties that are better suited for that... villa next door which has a pool or the beach house which has a little more space. This was perfect for our first trip to St. Kitts, as we just needed a place to cook our meals and cozy up in the evenings. We loved the outdoor shower! Imagine showering while looking out onto the ocean and what appears to be heaven on earth. There is so much information provided at the cottage once you arrive that you will have no question as to where to go, when and how. Most days, we ended up packing our cooler full of local Carib beers and snacks and just exploring beaches all over the island. Most times, we were the only two on the beach! There aren't many Carribean islands where you can experience this anymore. Franklin was very helpful and even brought us a conch shell to take home with us as a reminder of our honeymoon week. The property is well-maintained and private. There are a lot of historical items and memories in this cottage, which made it feel like a happy home. They have many books so while I was there, I read on the history of St Kitts. This is not the place to stay if you are more of a resorts type of traveller or require constant entertainment. You make your own bed and clean up after yourself. Living in the city, we loved being away from it all, but were a short drive from the area where there are restaurants and people. I STRONGLY recommend renting a car. There are many taxis, but if you enjoy your freedom to roam, rent a car. They book up, so renting one ahead of time might be good. One of the best things about the cottage was how light and airy it was. The view from the bed is Nevis and the ocean. Surreal. It is more like a studio, so make sure you like who you are travelling with :) We will certainly be back! Next time we will probably rent the Villa just because it has the pool which is nice for a night-time swim. But, for the price, you CANNOT beat the cottage. I recommend this to couples. Again, thanks Ricky and Penny!! Hope we get to meet you in person sometime. J & D
