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.

Wonderful island retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Exquisitely beautiful views, lovely cottage, PERFECT beach house, gracious hosts who provided the most helpful advice and assistance. Our 2 weeks in St Kitts were a wonderful adventure! We especially recommend Cockleshell Beach, (we swam almost every morning ), Romney Manner/ Caribelle batik and Brimstone Hill Fortress, Salt Plage Beach bar to watch the sunset, The Pavilion for dinner, lobster fest at the Reggae Beach restaurant on Friday night. For history buffs- we really enjoyed the Alexander Hamilton house on Nevis (in Charlestown) and the St. Kitts history museum in Basseterre. And the cottage patio and balcony are so beautiful, we spent time just relaxing and soaking up the scenery and the ambiance- no need to go anywhere. We highly recommend Ocean Song cottage!

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.

SHOULD BE MORE THAN 5 STARS

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do it justice. The cottage is stunning. Location and view even more stunning. Meticulously maintained, beautifully appointed, absolutely charming as the name suggests. It's larger than expected and having a full kitchen came in handy. Loved the outdoor shower with the most amazing view.

A three minute walk to the beach lounge with honor bar, snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, kayak and best of all, the owners Penny and Ricky. Such gracious hosts who made us feel like welcomed guests in their home. You'll have the secluded Turtle Beach virtually to yourself to walk, explore, snorkel, enjoy the wildlife, and of course swim.

I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't love this place. If the set up doesn't please you, you're just impossible to please. To the reviewer that complained the TV was too small I say, REALLY? We never turned on the TV. Why would anyone want to look at a TV when they could be looking at that breathtaking view.

We can't wait to go back. Thanks Penny and Ricky for helping to make it an unforgettable week.

Fantastic place for a holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific spot. It is well described in the listing and spotlessly clean. Ricky and Penny were also great to chat with and had helpful suggestions (that said we are pretty independent and low maintenance travellers). The cottage was perfect for us and we both thought much larger than we expected from the photos. Things we loved about it - 1) it is very well designed and really architecturally interesting for a little cottage - lots of interesting collectibles and antiques from the island, a nice selection of art and great reading material, 2) the outside shower is great, 3) the little patio with two chairs was perfect for morning coffee and end of day glasses of wine with a fantastic view of Nevis, 4) the bed was very comfortable, 5) kitchen was well appointed and stocked with condiments and a few extras, 6) great lounging space inside, 7) the views of the beach, Nevis and surrounding island were amazing, 8) it is very peaceful. Just the crickets and other night sounds and birds during the day and of course the sound of ocean waves all the time. We also liked that we were high enough up to have great views but still did not have to drive up a big hill to get there. I also cannot think of a better location. It is close to the best beaches, great snorkelling and a number of the better restaurants. Also when driving into town the views are spectacular. It is also close to the car ferry (a few minutes drive away) to Nevis which we really enjoyed. Highlights were Montpellier Plantation, the Hermitage, Golden Rock for lunch including walking the grounds afterward and the Cottle Church ruins.

Some of the reviews talked about the condition of the road - don't be deterred - it is only about a mile that is near the cottage that is gravel - the road is very wide there, well travelled and I wouldn't hesitate to take either of our cars over it. It's much like a potholed road after a northern city's winter! Don't waste your money on a 4 x 4 for the sake of this road. The rest of the road from Basseterre is freshly paved and the last mile or so before the cottage is concrete and in good shape.

The Beach House Cottage was also great to have access to. We walked down there a number of times to sit by the water or read. We enjoyed using the beach blankets from the cottage and the snorkelling gear from the Beach House which we used a number of times.

We highly recommend Ocean Song Cottage and my partner and I can't wait to return!!

Great vacation cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a great spot to land in St Kitts! It is a short walk to your own private beach house with snorkeling, paddle boarding, and kayaking all available for free. The cottage location is secluded yet close to multiple fantastic restaurants. The owners respond very quickly to any concerns. I would highly recommend!

Perfect spot for a Caribbean get away!

  • 5 of 5

Penny and Ricky are two of the most thoughtful hosts anyone could ask for. While we were stuck waiting in an airport they arranged a rental car. When our luggage didn't arrive, they tracked it down and delivered it to us. The cottage refrigerator had eggs and juice for our first morning so we didn't have to rush out to the store. Their recommendations and directions were fabulous. And the cottage was our dream home! So cozy with wonderful views. We spent mornings on one deck and afternoons on another. The evening breeze was so wonderful that we never needed air conditioning. The place is spotless and up to date.The outdoor shower is amazing! We had the beach to ourselves most of the time and the kitchen with fully stocked bar made it easy to hang out all day. Local restaurants and bars are a short drive away. Wish we could stay forever!
