PALMS COURT GARDENS, ROMANTIC COTTAGE, LUXURY POOL, OCEAN VIEW.

Basseterre Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleep 2-4

Settled on a small hill, just off the old town Basseterre with fabulous views on the harbor and the caribbean sea, just a 3 min. walk away from the town beach and vegetable and fish market, lies the privately owned property Palms Court Gardens, surrounded by one acre lush, tropical gardens and a luxury infinity pool.

The property consists of the main house, housing the rooms of the owners, the kitchen for the restaurant and the Shell Works gift boutique, and an all wood cottage. The rental apartment is on the second floor of the cottage, offering the best view on the island of the historic town Basseterre, the harbor and the ocean with the neighboring island Nevis in the background.

Being on the top floor of the building, the apartment's ambiance profits from the open vaulted caribbean style wood ceiling with its visible beams. The decor is held in a luxurious, mediterranean 'shabby chic' style. A fully equipped kitchen with enclosed dining/living space, a spacious bathroom with walk in shower and separate toilet, a library, free Wi-Fi, a large air conditioned bedroom with one queen size and one single bed (enough space to put another bed for a family with 2 children) and a large flat screen TV, Bose radio/CD palyer, offers everything you look for in your home away from home.

Palms Court Gardens is privately owned. Until 2003 it belonged to the Royal Bank of Canada who had for many years their managers staying here. In 2003 it was sold to a local business man and his wife - an arts and crafts teacher from Switzerland. The property and gardens then were completely transformed into a mediterranean/ caribbean dream and opened to the public the first time in 2010. Although on a day with cruise ships in port, an average of 50 - 70 visitors are touring the garden and some also spend some time at the pool, the guests at the cottage still enjoy their full privacy, as the apartment is located on the second floor and out of the eye of the garden visitor.

The cottage was initially built for the family's own purposes; a design studio on the ground level and a one bedroom apartment on the second floor for their private guests. It is now offered for the first time for rent.

After the family purchased the property in 2003, a 7 year period followed of extensive restorations, re-landscaping, and adding a luxury infinity pool and the guest cottage. The family finally decided to share the beauty of the gardens and the stunning ocean, town and mountain views with the public. Carrying idea was to support the Children Educational Fund St.Kitts with the generated income. A special attraction at Palms Court Gardens is Shell Works

St.Kitts, with its production site and gift shop located between the guest cottage and main house. Jewelry, gift items and home accessories, all made from natural and local materials, are produced right on location and invite the visitor to watch and talk to the artisans.

Designed and restored for the private use, each inch throughout the garden, main house, patio and guest cottage is done with extraordinary style and class, and offering all the amenities your looking for your private home away from home.

OUR MOST RELAXING CARIBBEAN VACATION EVER.

  • 5 of 5
Audrey and I are just back in New England for a week after a two week stay at Palms Court Gardens. Our stay at the wonderful cottage was simply delightful. Since the cottage deck is on the second floor of the wooden cottage building and quite high overlooking the pool and the bay far below it is like being in a tree house. The breeze blew constantly from across the bay so the was never any need for fans or AC.
Audrey and I are old fans of St. Kitts and Nevis and have been coming to these Islands since 1978 and have done and seen just about everything there is to see so we did not feel compelled to tour around much and some days just relaxed at the cottage and watched the world go by from our perch.
The cottage is roomy and very comfortable and has a fully equiped kitchen. Since I like too cook we prepared all our breakfasts and half our dinners. This took several visits to the market to keep supplying the kitchen and having a car allowed us to use the well stocked Rams Market.
The giant TV on the wall at the end of the bed provided some end of the day entertainment.
The WiFi coverage for the cottage was sometimes slow and at certain times of the day you could get dropped . This was no fault of Palms Court but due to inadequate bandwidth on the Island.
In general we were completely satisfied with every thing. The staff of the restaurant and the property were friendly and helpful.
We were so pleased that we have booked three weeks in March and April, 2015 for another super relaxing visit.

JUST PERFECT.

  • 5 of 5
Perfect place to stay on St. Kitts. Beautiful grounds. Very clean. Staff are very friendly and funny. Owners could not be nicer. Location is convenient as you can walk to downtown in about 10 minutes. Markets and grocery shopping are right there. Restaurant on property is open for breakfast and lunch and the Serendipity is right around the corner for dinner - can't fault either one. Shell Works is on the property and there is a great selection of things to buy there - jewellery and things for your home. Cottage is just sweet.

AN EXCEPTIONAL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our vacation at Palm Ct. Gardens apt. The apt. is exactly as shown in the pictures, with stylish furnishing, comfortable bed, and an extraordinary pool and garden area. The patio and restaurant area provided a beautiful backdrop to the gorgeous sea views. The sea breezes kept the apt. cool during the day and the a/c was helpful for sleeping. I enjoyed the deck with ample seating and spent many hours reading and enjoying the views. I especially enjoyed watching the cruise ship dock in the morning and depart in the late afternoons. The onsite restaurant was an added bonus with very good breakfasts and lunches. The French toast was especially good, as were the pork BBQ ribs, cooked by owner Ernest. The restaurant staff could not have been any more friendly and helpful. We were treated like valued guests, especially by Roxanne, who was a joy to meet. The owner Claudia greeted us with open arms and hugged us each morning when she saw us. We could not have asked for a more welcoming host. We walked to town a couple of times and felt comfortable doing so. Overall, our vacation experience was very positive and I would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants a relaxing vacation different from what you would experience at a mega hotel or resort. Claudia was very responsive during the booking process and answered my emails very quickly. The apt was very clean and the grounds well maintained.

RELAXING, RELAXING, AND RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Palms Court Garden was simply amazing! We actually stayed at two places in St Kitts. The first was Palms Court Garden. I have to say, the expectation for the rest of our trip was set on day one after our arrival at Palms Court Garden. No other place we visited was the atmosphere so accommodating and relaxing.
We had a late arrival due to weather, and the staff was happy to stay to greet us and get us situated in the rental. We were warmly greeted and given water while we checked in to and shown around the property and given restaurant recommendations for dinner.
Our first morning I woke early enough to take sunrise pictures over the south of the island, and it was absolutely beautiful. For breakfast we met Ernest, the property owner, he is a very nice gentlemen and he showed us what the property looked like before their renovation. It was very nice of him to spend time with us as I understand he's a very busy man.
Throughout our stay the entire staff was so nice and accommodating. On our second morning we met Claudia. We spent a lot of time talking about the property and got to know her pretty well. She is certainly a fantastic person to know. If you have the opportunity to meet her, it is worth your time to talk with her.
Every staff member is so warm and welcoming, I simply can't say enough of each person who works for Ernest and Claudia. Just that they are an amazing staff.
As stated previously, Palms Court Garden set a seriously high expectation for the rest of our stay and on our last day there, we were sad to leave to go to the other location we stayed for the remainder of our trip.
The few days we spent visiting, was definitely the highlight of our trip and we can't wait to visit again some day.
The worst possible thing I can say about Palms Court Garden is that we had to leave. But at least we have pleasant memories of a beautifully maintained property, excellent staff, wonderful views, excellent breakfast and lunches, wonderful art work to see and also to purchase (we bought a lot of art work) and outstanding property owners.
One tip, try each of their freshly made juices while you're there. You won't be disappointed!
Thank you to everyone who made our trip so memorable!
We miss you,
Ron and Jeannie Smith

BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO STAY ON ST. KITTS

  • 5 of 5
Just returned today from a week on St Kitts and @ Palms Court Gardens. The property is beautiful, gardens full of tropical flowers, surrounding a stunning infinity pool and jacuzzi. The apt has everything you need to feel at home. Staying here actually makes you feel like you live here. Its very clean and comfortable. The bed was great, the bathroom and kitchen were great and the outdoor deck was amazing. You never tire of the view. The location is great too. If you want to visit Nevis, you just walk down the street 10 minutes to the ferry. Easy access to the city, to the northern part of the island and to the southern peninsula area. St Kitts is a wonderful place to visit. The people are friendly, the food is great, and the beaches and wildlife are really cool. The Monkeys are the Best!!!! When I come back, I'm staying here again!!!!
