ON SEA, STUNNING VIEW, PRIVATE GAZEBO & PRIVATE PATH TO WATER

Frigate Bay Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bath (sleeps 3+1)

Condo overlooks the Caribbean Sea and beaches of Frigate Bay with nothing to block the view. Private gazebo, and this is the only condo in the development with a path to the ocean. Private, detached laundry shed and gardens, 2 private parking places. Condo has studio bedroom with kitchenette and separate bedroom with trundle bed (single bed above, pull-out bed from below), suitable for couple plus one adult; or couple plus two younger children.

The Horizons Villas development is located on the Caribbean side of Frigate Bay (the ocean side of St. Kitts is generally too violent for swimming). It’s an easy 5-minute walk along the water or short drive of less than five minutes to the best beach bars, restaurants and swimming in St. Kitts. Marshall’s restaurant, considered one of the top 5 restaurants on the Island, is located on the top level.

Although technically a “condo” located in the beautiful Horizons Villas development, there is no condominium association here, and therefore no condo rules to concern you. This will be your own private residence, similar to a villa, and how you choose to spend your time will not upset anyone. The condo is located at the very end of a road at the very bottom of the 3-level Resort development, and you have an un-restricted view of the sea to the south and west; total privacy from the rest of the development; and the only sounds you will hear are soft waves breaking on the shore and birds singing in the trees. If you want 'romantic,' this is it.

Unit comes with a six-pack of beer, six-pack of regular or diet coke, and a bottle of good rum.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful time! Thank you so much for letting us use your place. The location was perfect-- we had most of our breakfasts in the gazebo, and when we wanted to pick up and go it was easy to drive anywhere. We followed some of your restaurant recommendations and were very pleased. We also discovered a new restaurant on the strip in Frigate Bay: Jam Rock. It opened in November, which might be why it wasn't on your list. We went there our first night and I had amazing, freshly caught grouper with a caper sauce. It was so good we went back on our last night! The prices were reasonable and the food was just as tasty as anything we tried at some of the more expensive places.



We managed to prepare a few dinners at the condo, although without my usual cupboard full of ingredients and supplies my options were limited. That was my own fault though-- I had forgotten how when my family did vacation rentals when I was a kid, we'd go someplace that was only a couple hours away and my mom would bring two coolers full of supplies! It probably would have been just as expensive to buy a ton of ingredients, spices, and pans as it would have been to eat out frequently, which we did. But that's okay, we really enjoyed ourselves and saw a lot of the island that way. One night we made some fish from the market in Basseterre with a simple marinade from the store, and it was pretty good!



One thing you may want to consider is adding a paragraph in your welcome packet about the condition in which you would like the condo to be left. When we got there, Mike and I realized that we weren't sure if we should launder all the sheets and towels, etc. at the end of our stay. We bumped into Shelley on our second-to-last day, and she told us that wasn't necessary.



Our experience was overwhelmingly positive. The whole honeymoon was everything we wanted and needed after six months of intense planning.



All the best, Laura

TROPICAL PARADISE.

  • 5 of 5
My fiance and I recently spent a week at the Buena Vista and had a truly wonderful time. The unit is comfortable, nicely accommodated, safe and well situated...and the view is spectacular! The owner couldn't have been nicer and truly made us feel like our satisfaction was his primary concern. We've traveled quite a bit around the Caribbean and are always thinking of new places to visit, however, this time we are already talking about when can we fit another St Kitts/Buena Vista excursion into our travel plans!

SPECTACULAR VIEW

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to St Kitts. This property has the most gorgeous view. It was clean and comfortable. Bill could not have been more helpful. Having stayed at islands that were a bit more "touristy", we had a few things to learn. Bill got us through every bump, and never made us feel as though we were disturbing him. I would recommend this property to anyone considering a visit to St Kitts.
I would suggest renting a car. There are beaches and several beach bars within walking distance along the water(if you are in good physical shape), but there is a lot more on the island to see, and a taxi can get pricey after awhile.
My next trip to St Kitts, I will definitely be staying here again. Thanks Bill, for everything!

VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Having decided to vacation in St Kitts for two weeks in the month of May 2013. We sat about obtaining suitable accommodation to meet our needs. From the various feedback we received, we decided on a location based on the information that Paul and Anna had forward to us. At this point we need to make the reader aware that Paul was very patient answering the numerous questions we asked of him. Not only were his responses speedy but very full, including more information than we had asked for, which was helpful.
The instructions given to reach location from the airport was very clear and correct. The colour photographs which we received did not do justice to the accommodation, facilities and the stunning panoramic views from the location, even the rocky sea shore has it,s own beauty.(Readers please do not be put off by the rocky sea shore, there is a beach of golden sand with clear blue water and a range of facilities less than four minutes walk from the location). The information, support, guidance and assistance we received from Paul before and during, made our stay at the place and in St Kitts a very pleasant and a memroble one.
One reads feedback from individual and or individuals about the places they have stayed and invariably one ask one self the question "Is this really true about the place,scenery,facilities and is the owner that helpful and forth coming with the information?. Well, we have visited and found the feedback which we have read to be consistent with what we experienced. So if you are thinking of spending some time in St Kitts and looking for a place to stay and a very helpful person. Don,t take our word for it, book some time at this accommodation and we are sure that you will come to the same conclusion we came to, that is, a Villa with excellent facilities, stunning panoramic views, a quite location with an accommodating, supportive and helpful person by the name of Paul.
Paul and Anna thank you for allowing to stay at your villal and for making our stay in St Kitts so pleasant and memorable and when we are nex,t there if the accommodation is available, we would certainly like to book it.

GREAT TIME IN ST. KITTS

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our visit to paradise!! We ended up going to St. Kitts because our daughter's boyfriend is in vet school there. We visited him on his break. I must say it is one of the best times we had. The owner of this condo Bill, was so helpful from beginning to end. We have never been to this area before and all the information he provided was accurate and very much appreciated. We highly recommend this rental to anyone. We stayed at the Buena Vista. It was just Great!!! We enjoyed the refreshments that welcomed us, and the priceless views. It is so peaceful and we felt so safe. It was so nice to be able to walk to the beach bars and also snorkle right in front of the condo. We saw alot of amazing fish!! My husband also enjoyed fishing off the rocks in the early morning. The location of the condo is great. Also, the rental price is very reasonable. Bill, thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your place and enjoy your piece of paradise. It was an unforgetable experience!!!

BEST VALUE ON ST KITTS

  • 5 of 5
I just returned froma 10 night stay at Buena Vista, the middle condo. This place is awesome!! Incredible view from your condo day or night. If you do get a car be very careful. You are driving on the left side of the road, which is a little strange to big with, but the taxi drivers and other local's drive very fast and there are alot of pothole's and the round about's are very confusing. Our favorite beach by far was shipwreck beach. They supply beach chairs for a small charge and the food and drinks were very good. We also really liked Marshalls and Rock Lobster for a nice dinner. Do not try the french place, very misleading on pricing. Food was pretty good but way too expensive!! If you want to go to St. Kitts I would definatly recomend staying here. You will not find a better place or price!! Thanks for a great vacation!! Will come back again soon!!

VERY HELPFUL OWNER

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were visiting a friend who is attending the Vet school on the island. We stayed in Bougainvilla, the lower condo. Bill, the owner, had recommended it as being a little more private than the upstairs and I agree with that recommendation. If you're not going to use the extra bedroom for more than just storage then this is the way to go. You also have quick access to the Gazebo, which has a great view. When we arrived the internet was not working. I used another internet connection and contacted Bill via email. He gave me some ideas on how to get it going again and we did. We also let Bill know about a gate that wasn't closing and within a couple of days it was fixed. Throughout our stay Bill, the owner was very helpful and responsive in solving any problems we had . Finally, when we returned to the states we realized that my wife's phone was left in the condo. We contacted Bill and he contacted the condo manager. The phone was found and I will be receiving it soon. Thanks Bill! If you're going to St. Kitt's and want a little different experience than the totally touristy Marriott Resort I highly recommend this rental.

Owner's Response: Just as an explanation, there are two units, one on top of the other, both identical except that the spare bedroom in the lower unit (Bougainvillea) has no windows, being blocked off by the laundry shed, while the spare bedroom in the upper unit (Buena Vista) has two windows, one with a view of the water to the west. Bougainvillea is better suited to a couple who does not intend to use the spare bedroom consistently. If there are children, or more than two adults, Buena Vista would be a better choice.

Many thanks, everyone,

Bill
