Turtle Beach Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

LOCATION: Turtle Beach, St. Kitts (St. Christophers), Caribbean. Turtle Beach is a 15-20 minute drive from the airport on a beautiful drive south over the mountains of the South East Peninsula, with Atlantic ocean on the left and the Caribbean Ocean on the right.

KEYWORDS: Villa, Ocean View, Infinity edge pool, a/c, quiet, 3 bedrooms, gourmet kitchen, spectacular views, 5-star feedback ratings.

ACCOMMODATIONS: Our new, architecturally-designed home is currently un-named and at one time we were jokingly thinking of naming it “The Black Hole” since we have found ourselves unable to leave the veranda from breakfast time until mid-afternoon. Some days we never left! We’d be reading, talking, eating, sleeping and playing games. The talking part was invariably about what we should do that morning for our activity. Sometimes we would walk the 100 yards down the hill to Turtle Beach and go snorkeling on the reef. If we went out to the left of the reef, we would invariably see two to three green turtles (most likely the reason this quiet bay got its name). If we felt really energetic, we’d jump in the car and drive 5 minutes to Sandy Bank beach and go boogie-boarding.

Our home is situated on a hill above Turtle Beach, on the southernmost tip of St. Kitts, looking across the 2 mile ocean Narrows to Nevis and the 3,000’ Mt. Nevis. The house is angled so it catches the tropical breezes just right. The only sounds one falls to sleep or awakens to are the sounds of nature. We have a two-car parking area off the hill. The wrought iron gates leads you down to the rear open courtyard of tiles, white rounded stone, plantings and an outdoor shower area.

MAIN FLOOR: From the rear courtyard, the French doors open up to the living room area, taking your eyes directly to the 18’ wide glass Nanadoor that opens up to the veranda and the breathtaking views of Mt. Nevis across the Caribbean waters.

Contiguous to the right of the living room is the fully equipped gourmet kitchen. The gas stove/electric oven is located in a center island looking out through another set of French glass doors to the infinity edge pool and across the blue waters to Nevis. Looking back into the kitchen from the pool are five teak high-stools facing the kitchen bar. The underside of the bar is faced with local natural stone as is the wall around the window sink that looks into the rear courtyard. All stonework accented throughout our home and the walls outside were completed by Sandy Point, the islands premier stone mason. The laundry and powder room are also on this floor. A TV/music center joins the living area with the kitchen (bring your i-Pods). The remaining accents of quartz counter tops, Florida porcelain tile (throughout our home), teak furniture by Kingly-Bate and vaulted ceilings with three fans complete the main living area.

The five-panel glass Nanadoor slides open in concertina fashion to the left, leaving an expanse of indoor/outdoor living between living room, veranda and sun deck (this is our black hole I described earlier). Several lounge chairs and other seating areas are located on the veranda. We always move our 6-8 person teak dining table and chairs outside for daytime games, reading, and evening dinners under the stars. We used stainless steel railings around the veranda and pool to minimize disruption to the eyes as you take in the views.

The master bedroom has a queen bed, A/C, vaulted ceilings and fan, and en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower/window looking out to Nevis. The master bedroom on this floor with its own balcony, and the guest bedrooms down stairs, all have this wonderful view. A large walk-in closet off the master bedroom stores sheets, towels and supplies while still giving space for clothing and suitcases, etc.

DOWNSTAIRS: Two guest bedrooms have either a queen or two extra-long twins beds (can convert to one King) and share a bathroom and walk-in shower. Both have A/C, ceiling fans. Guests can exit the downstairs hallway to the quiet veranda and take in the views by the landscaped garden.

Hurricane shutters are on all windows for both security when our home is vacated, but also for those who can’t abide to be woken up by the splendor of sunrise! Like many islands, power and water outages are not unheard of, so we have equipped our home with a liquid propane generator large enough to automatically cope with all electrical house needs. Mains water comes to the house through an 800gal cistern, so even with a water break, the house supply should not be uninterrupted. For our peace-of-mind, and yours, we have a 24/7 external video surveillance camera system.

The villa is maintained beautifully by an on-island Property Manager (also our Project Manager for construction) who knows the building very well. He can be contacted in the rare event you have any building issues. A gardener and pool boy will service the property before your arrival as will our wonderful housekeeper, who will provide cleaning and laundry service before your arrival. Additional services can be arranged directly through the building manager.

About Nick Guise

Cathy comes from the New England area in America and Nick was born in England and came over to America in the early 80s. They both work in the Biotechnology field which is where they met in the mid 90s and have been happily married, and avid travelers ever since.

Nick Guise purchased this villa in 2011

Why Nick Guise chose Turtle Beach

We first visited St. Kitts with friends in 2001 and stayed at the Reggae Bar & Grill on Turtle Beach which closed at 6pm every night, leaving us upstairs in the apartment to the sounds of the ocean waves, the rustle of palm leaves and other nature-tunes that the tropical breeze brought. Of the 2-3,000 acres of land of the South East Peninsula, we were likely part of a night population of 15-20 people! A few years later, our friends built at Turtle Beach and for a number of years we benefitted by their hospitality. We realized after our first visit that, just like you see on the glossy pages of travel magazines, we had found “our” paradise, and made our own future plans to build.

What makes this villa unique

We love to come here with no schedule in mind; we have enough of those in our work. If you need a place to kick back and relax, indulging yourself in doing nothing, or hiking, diving and being active, then our home and island will quickly get you in the mood. There are 3-4 beach restaurants within 3-5 minutes drive, each offering a little different style/quality of food. Sugar cane used to be the main industry of St. Kitts and its only been in the last 5-6 years that tourism has really started. So St. Kitts is not like most of the other well established, highly populated Caribbean islands. There is still plenty of serene, unspoilt areas to visit, as well as night life along the beaches of Frigate Bay and the hotel areas. 1/2 hour ferry rides get you over to Nevis to explore by bike, taxi or car.

The island of St Kitts is shaped like a comma. The capital is Basetere and it is in the middle of the comma. North of Basettere is where most Kittitians live. Immediately south of Basseterre is the area of Frigate Bay with hotels, restaurants and a few beaches. Now if one heads south-east from Basseterre, one heads into an area of hills, coves and bays. It is in this very beautiful area that this villa is situated.

About 2 miles from the the southeastern tip of St Kitts (not very far from where the villa is) is the island of Nieves. The two islands are separated by the Narrows, about a 2 mile stretch of ocean connecting the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean Sea and this is the view one has from the balcony of the villa and the bedrooms! Just awesome!

The house perches on the side of a hill and is about 5 min by foot to the beach.

This is probably one of the most well-built homes I have rented on VRBO. It is in a quiet, safe and secluded area. There us no nightlife! The bedrooms and family room face the ocean bringing in the sea breeze. There are mosquito nets everywhere to prevent those bites. The home is CLEAN. Th kitchen is very nice and well-stocked.

We didn't have internet access for a few days but that was an island-wide problem.

The infinity pool is small but does it's job. There is a much bigger pool not too far away called the OCEAN!

The caretaker is nice and very helpful. He has a small SUV he rents out. MY advice - GET IT!. it is nice, newer and well-kept.

As mentioned earlier, there is a small beach about 5 min down the hill. The waves are strong there and with strong winds, seaweed tends to collect. About less than a 10 min drive will get you to Cockleshell beach. Get there early to avoid the crowds from the cruise ships. The same amount of driving time will get you to Majors Bay. The beach there is totally not commercialized and affords a "Robinson-Crusoe"-like experience.

There are 2 beach bars/restaurants which stay open to about 6 - Lion Rock and Reggae Bar. The Spice Mill stays open longer.

One has to drive to Frigate Bay or Basseterre for groceries. The road is not very good but manageable with an SUV. The road twists and turns through the hills with breathtaking views of both the Atlantic and Caribbean Sea. Driving on it after sunset is challenging.

So, if you want a very clean, nice and secluded villa with amazing ocean and mountain views, don't look any further.

We rented this lovely house over Christmas and it was enjoyed by the whole family. The rooms are delightful in particular the ground floor, which enjoys a magnificent view of Nevis across the water, with the lights that twinkle in the distance at night. Kitchen, living room, deck and master bedroom are all well situated on this floor. The pool provides a cooling splash as a contrast to the several nice beaches at this end of the island.

Turtle beach is the nicest part of the island, enjoying a lovely breezy climate and privacy from the madding crowds.

The house is very well managed by a helpful local, who is available for help if required.

Great House and Island

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just got back from a week in St. Kitts at this house on Turtle Beach. The house is perfect with every possible amenity you need. We have rented several houses in the Caribbean and this is our favorite by far. The pool looked small in photos but was perfect for a dip and splash around. The neighborhood was quiet and safe and away from any cruise ship tours! The restaurants all have great food, our favorite was Marshall's but also loved Spice Mill close to the home as well as Reggae Beach Bar. We are adventurous so did a hike to the top of the volcano with Captain Sunshine. If you are active, it is worth the trip, so beautiful and a hike we will never forget. Thanks Nick and Cathy for sharing your beautiful house with us.

Owner's Response: We were happy to hear Amy and her husband adventured out on one of the many great hikes. Both St. Kitts and Nevis offer several routes up these inactive volcanoes, and the views can be spectacular. Taking a guide is a smart thing to do and can save time and frustration in finding the correct and safest route.

If I were to build a second home, this is the house I would hope to copy. No wasted space, ocean breeze, fabulous views, killer kitchen. Owner and property manager could not have been more accommodating. Went with two teens. Even the deck suites our taste--half sun, half shade. Wonderful outdoor eating area. The road was a bit iffy and the turn into the driveway is a bit dicey. But we loved being on this end of the island--right amount of development and rusticity !!

Owner's Response: Cathy and I always love to hear that our guests have enjoyed their time at our home, and appreciated the attentive service of our Property Manager's team. We were fortunate to be able to learn from other's who had built before us and design a house that worked in every way for us. We hope Amy has an opportunity to build her house sometime in the future.

This was a return visit for us to this property - we were there two years ago, just after it became available to rent. Wow, one never gets tired of the view and the standard of the property is awesome - so immaculate and cared for. The gardens have matured and what a splendid compliment to the property.

We enjoyed a second visit to Nevis and partook on the best rum punch we have ever tasted at the Hermitage Plantation. A day trip took us around St Kitts with a visit to Brimstone Hill Fort, for a little history of the island, and then onto Ottley's Planation for a splendid lunch and warm welcome. Closer to 'home' we enjoyed a wonderful afternoon at The Pavillion being pampered with cocktails, lunch and a swim. More wonderful memories.........

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week as this fantastic villa which took our breath away the moment we stepped on the property and enjoyed the fantastic views. The home lives up to the comments, reviews and images already posted by the owner and other visitors.

The day after we arrived the only thing we managed to motivate ourselves to do was go grocery shopping :) Monday through Thursday mornings we dove with ProDivers in Basseterre and then returned promptly to the house for lunch, reading, sun bathing to reheat our cores, and naps of course!

The house is easy to find and the drive back and forth to Basseterre and frigate bay full of photo opportunities. Its a solid 30 minutes each way though so be prepared for some driving - btw they drive on the left! Oh .. and a jeep or something with decent suspension is advised as there are some pretty bumpy roads on the island.

We did cook most of our meals and the kitchen is superb and has everything you need. Groceries and selection at the stores varied and prices were a bit higher than expected.
