About Penny

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.

Penny purchased this cottage in 2010

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.

We spent two weeks at the cottage - a new thing for me to be gone that long. I actually learned to relax and let go! We picked the cottage because of the beautiful photos, location away from the cruisers, and access to the Beach house. The photos, as great as they are, don't do the cottage justice, because you can't hear the waves from the photos as you can in person! The views from the cottage and the patio were amazing. The Cottage was private, quiet and had all that we needed. Ricky and Penny were nearby and extremely helpful and fun to talk to. Access to the beach house lounge during the afternoon is a bonus that can't be overstated. The views, beach and snorkeling were awesome. I was able to see turtle, octopus and squid while snorkeling. Penny will give you many great recommendations for dining nearby. We rented a car which is a must to see all of the island. We also did a few sailing excursions, visited Nevis and mostly, relaxed at the beach. I highly recommend this rental

I wish I was there now!!! We LOVED the cottage and the beautiful view and how quiet it is! We only had a few visitors... and most were monkeys! I think this was the most relaxing trip we have ever been on and we travel a lot. The decor in the cottage is terrific.. 100% my taste. The view from the bed is amazing! The host are wonderful and answered the many questions I had! I hope to be back one day!!

Best Honeymoon Spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took a trip from Boston to spend our honeymoon on Saint Kitts. We enjoyed every morning waking up to the beautiful sunrise and loved the outdoor showers. The accommodations are exactly as pictured. The information we received from Ricky and Penny was so helpful and we agreed with all of their recommendations. My only complaint is that someone has already snagged it up for our one year anniversary. We can not wait to make it back to this fabulous cottage!

A slice of paradise right next to the sea

  • 5 of 5

Our overall experience at Oceansong was magical. The first night we fell asleep to the sound of the waves and the tree frogs singing. The room had everything you need, and a very comfortable bed. The outdoor shower was a novelty but worked really well in the hot weather. There is a balcony off the bedroom that looks out to the sea and across to Nevis, where we ate all of our meals and observed all the incredible wildlife.

Booking the property was all very straightforward, and Franklyn, the property manager was extremely kind and helpful.

We cannot recommend this cottage enough, ideal for a single person or couple.

Breathtaking beauty with the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation to St. Kitts was epic...largely due to this cottage. The fabulous location and views (and I could write an entire review just gushing over the glorious view from the French doors of the cottage), the convenience and comfort of the beach lounge, the helpfulness of Ricky and Penny from afar and Franklin right there...I could go on and on. First, Penny was lovely to work with for booking and she provided plenty of helpful information and recommendations about the island's restaurants, beaches, and attractions, as well as those on Nevis. (Bullseye Rental was a great recommendation for our rental car, too. Thanks, Penny!) The cottage itself was just as pictured on this listing but also had so many little details and lovely antique decor not pictured here that just added to its island charm. The outdoor shower was so unique, private, and tranquil; the bed was very big and comfortable; there are also many lovely seating areas outside the cottage that were also fun to use and explore. We had no problems with bugs, but were careful to keep food in the fridge, to tidy up the kitchen area after cooking, and close doors and windows before the sun went down. The prevailing winds keep the breeze going throughout the cottage during the day and it is just amazing...though we were also thankful for the AC at night! The kitchen is well stocked with condiments, some spices, and some fresh breakfast items Franklin delivered the day we arrived. We made breakfast there every day with the ample cookware and utensils. The bathroom had a hairdryer and shampoo, conditioner, soaps, etc. and there were also lots of bug sprays and sunscreens to use if guests don't have any. The beach lounge was an amenity that we did not expect to use much and we ended up spending many mornings there and one whole day just lounging around! Its proximity to the beach, nice private bathroom, honor bar, fishing poles and beach gear, and full kitchen all came in very handy and made us feel like we had a home right on the beach.They really thought of everything! I wish I could give Ocean Song Cottage 100 stars! We hope to return with friends and rent the big house along with the cottage someday. Thank you, Ricky and Penny, for this unforgettable vacation!

Great time in paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved staying in the cottage! It lived up to the pictures and more! We had no need to use the air conditioner. All we needed to do was open the windows and enjoy the winds from the ocean. It kept the place the perfect temperature day and night. We loved the view of Nevis from our bed. We also enjoyed going down to the lounge and swimming and relaxing. I would recommend Penny and Ricky to everyone. They were wonderful and very helpful. Their tips of things to do and where to eat on the island was way more than expected. They helped make this vacation everything I hoped it could be.
