About the property

Beautiful villa with splendid wievs! 4 Bedroms sleeps 8 and apartment sleeps 4.

Hillside is one of the largest [10,000sq ft] and most luxurious villas on St Kitts.

Stylish and spacious, Hillside has 4 bedrooms [+2 more rooms available on request in the lower apartment] and sits on an amazing site offering uninterrupted views of Turtle Beach, Cockleshell bay and the Caribbean sea.

Completed in 2012 Hillside is situated in the exclusive Turtle Beach Estates on the South East Peninsula of St Kitts.

A luxury home from home, Hillside offers all the benefits of luxury villa living. Hillside features a stunning private 60 ft infinity edge swimming pool. A huge 30 ft fully folding nana window brings the panoramic views inside into the 60 ft cathedral ceilings in the main living area. This is ultra cool Caribbean luxury!

Dining is accommodated inside and outside. Off the pool a covered outside living area offers shade and seats 8. Enjoy cooling island breezes as you kick back and relax, letting our experienced island staff take care of your every need.

The indoor living room features oversized comfortable sofas. The 12 seat dining table off the kitchen enables your whole party to get together and enjoy quality time together whilst enjoying amazing panoramic sunsets.

A separate TV room and a separate pool room offer relaxing times and fun. Hi-End stereo equipment is installed for music.

There is lots to do near Hillside: walk the rarely occupied Turtle Beach [yes turtles still nest here]; visit the best beach restaurant on the island 'The Beach House' [we recommend the chef's menu on Wednesday nights]; Reggae beach bar is a shrt walk away for awesome cocktails and lunches; Spice Mill serves the best stone baked pizzas a 10 min stroll down Cockleshell Bay; watersports and deep sea fishing can be organised through Gary at Reggae Beach Bar. Golf is available at special guest rates $75/round at the exceptional Royal St Kitts Golf Club. The 18 hole championship course is an amazing golfing experience. Or you can just chill, read books, sunbathe and drink fine rum punch... the choice is yours.

Groceries can be purchased for you and charged to your account, or you can source them yourself from the local supermarket in Basseterre.

Frigate bay is about a 10 min drive, with plentiful bars and a variety of restaurants or venture further north, to Basseterre, for some authentic local flavour and freshly caught fish.

Hillside is a non-smoking villa and we ask our guests to please smoke only outside of the building.

Turtle Beach is a quiet and tranquil beach that you will often find completely deserted. This is a public beach and you are allowed to use both the beach and the jetty even though it appears to look private because of the gate and small fence. This is a perfect place to stop and absorb the breathtaking views across the sea to Nevis while taking a romantic stroll or enjoying a delicious meal at the highly acclaimed Beach House Restaurant.

Best views in the Caribbean

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this home is five stars. Great owner, great communication, great welcoming staff (they met us at the airport), great location and great food. Located on the Southeast peninsula of St. Kitts, it is a short drive to some of the best restaurants on the island and the ferry to Nevis. The house has plenty of room, every amenity we could want and incredible views!! We would rent this home again!!

Thanks Edward for a great family vacation home!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Ben, Thank you for your nice words. We haven't met personally but I know from our local agent who met you in the airport that you are one of the best families we accepted. All of us wish your family the very best and you are always welcome coming back. Edward

Amazing experience with Beautiful Views and will exceed expectations!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at the Hillside Villa and we want to go back! A group of 8 of us booked this amazing home to escape a cold Wisconsin Winter and we can't say enough about it! From the initial inquiry about the house, Edward was very responsive, honest, friendly and helpful. There were 4 adults and 4 kids (ages 4 through 6) in our group and loved every minute we spent at the house and on St. Kitts. We asked the kids what the highlight of their trip was and they all said hanging at the pool! :)

Phyllis and Brenda met us with big smiles and a warm welcome and were really helpful throughout the week. Edward, the owner, stayed in touch making sure everything was perfect.

A few of the other things we loved included Reggae beach--Suzanna the friendly monkey sat on the kids' laps and heads....a crowd pleaser! We had a few tasty beachside lunches @ Reggae while enjoying calm water for both adults and kids. A ferry trip to Nevis was another highlight...go to Sunshines for a Bee Sting! Grab an after dinner drink at the Salt Plage (just down the road)-- it has a great vibe and good drinks. Carambola Beach (best chairs, lots of shade, calm water in front of the beach) and Shipwreck (monkeys galore!) were other really fun places to hang out. The only heads up we'd give is check when the cruise ships are in because the beaches are packed! Those are the days we spent lounging at the house, enjoying pool, nice breezes, spectacular views and AWESOME music collection! The house is SO'll be impressed with the decor, fully appointed kitchen and the VIEWS--WOW, WOW, WOW!!!! We ended up hiring a chef to come to the house for 3 evening meals while we enjoyed the lights of Nevis.

We rented Jeeps from Bullseye Car Rental (Winston is the best!) and you will seriously need the Jeep to get the house. The driveway is anywhere from a 15-22% grade which was LOTS of fun in the Jeeps!

Do it. Book it. You will LOVE it! ;)

Gorgeous, isolated getaway

  • 5 of 5

A group of 10 of us booked this house for a New Year's getaway, and I highly recommend it. The house is just as it appears in the photos, although the view and isolation are far better in person. Several of the days we just stayed at the house and enjoyed the large social areas, pool, and view. The best beach on the island is just down the hill, and the owner had arranged for us to have access to free chairs at the various beach bars. Phyllis & Brenda--the house managers--couldn't be better. They greeted us at the airport with hugs and smiles and helped us with everything during our stay. We even ended up spending New Year's with them and some of their family! Edward, the owner, was responsive to all of our needs before, during, and after the stay. You really won't regret booking this house!

Best view in the Caribbean!

  • 5 of 5

Every summer we pick a different Island to call home for a few weeks, splitting up our time between a luxury hotel and staying in a home that allows us to experience the full flavor of the island culture. The Hillside Villa was one of the most beautiful homes we have had the privilege to enjoy. We loved having so much room to play and the kids' enjoyed having their own bedrooms and bathrooms. My wife used the downstairs apartment as her private writing studio, indulging in its truly inspiring view. The views from every room in the house were breathtaking regardless of time of day, and even when it rained we sat outside to indulge in the experience. We love the fresh ocean breeze and found that opening the doors and windows allowed in the perfect breeze so that air conditioning was unnecessary. The kids loved playing in the infinity pool and utilizing the entertainment room, along with the pool table that beckoned between dips in the pool. The well-appointed kitchen had everything we needed to enjoy our home cooked meals and the BBQ was practically new. We loved that everything on the island was within a short drive and easy access, including the boat dock, fishing, snorkeling, sailing and island ferry to Nevis. Just down the hill, Reggae Beach offers your typical beach food and Friday night is lobster night - yum! They also have a variety of water sports activities for rental. And, if you are looking for a relaxing dinner out, Spice Mill is the place to go. The food, staff and view are fabulous! Overall our trip to St. Kitts was one of the best vacations ever and the Hillside Villa took it over the top.

Our party of 8 adults spent a week in Susie's Hillside Villa and everything I could say is completely consistent with all the other reviews for this property....spectacular! There are so many things to go and do and see but just spending time sitting by the pool and looking out at the awesome view was perhaps the best of all. Susie, starting 6 months before our arrival was a tremendous help with literally everything to include car rental, dining reservations, cell phone during the stay, deep sea fishing, places to go on certain days, private chef, and general info about the island. The Hillside Villa is spacious, clean, and completely accommodating for all 8 of us. All 4 bedrooms are large with 2 having their own bathroom and the two others share a large bathroom. One could easily seek privacy if desired. You MUST have a 4x4 vehicle or a comparable van powerful enough to make it up the driveway. Like others who have stayed here, we got the hang of it after a few times. Inform Susie of the details of your party and she will help you obtain the perfect car. Susie is responsive and so very nice. Her property manager Franklin is fun and also very attentive to your needs. Franklin came directly to the Marriott and brought us the house key and cell phone (we stayed there the night before we moved into the Villa). Franklin also helped us get a nice table at Shiggity Shack on the popular Thursday night. We hired a private chef one of the nights which was terrific. We went to many beaches and restaurants and the Hillside Villa is close to Reggae Beach Bar and Spice Mill Restaurant which are both great. Our week long island getaway was amazing and I would not hesitate to call Susie again if our future plans take us back to St Kitts. The Southeast Peninsula ( specifically Turtle Beach) is by far the most beautiful and relaxing location on the island. Thank you Susie and family!

We went to St Kitts to celebrate our grandmother’s 100th birthday and to have a family reunion. There were over 150 people staying in different locations and different parts of the island. We were the lucky ones to have chosen to stay at Hillside Villa. When you look at the pictures online, it doesn’t do it justice. It’s an amazing, beautiful and well designed villa. It is huge. It has all the home comforts you could ask for.

From the very beginning of the booking Susie was so helpful, approachable and informative and I felt at ease knowing that I would be well supported and looked after. Susie informed us that we would have to have 4x4s to get to the villa as the hill was very steep; however, after two or three goes it became ok.

We arrived in St Kitts at 5.30pm and Susie was there to meet us with her property manager Franklin. They had especially come out to meet us as the car hire company had let us down and we were kind of stranded which was very upsetting as we had young children with us. Susie and her A-Team rallied round took half of the party with the young children back to the villa whilst Franklin the property manager took us to the supermarket to get food for the night. They were absolute stars.

We found out later that Susie had a spent a lot of time trying to sort out the car hire problem on our behalf. This was over and above what we expected. It was getting dark by then and we were very unhappy about the car situation, however, we survived.

The next morning when we work up we were able to see the luxurious surroundings we were in, even as a group we had no chance of getting under each other’s feet because of the vastness of the villa. The views were absolutely beautiful and you could actually see Nevis from the villa. Every room in the villa had a gorgeous view of the surrounding area.

The infinity pool was fabulous and it was difficult trying to keep the children out of it. All the outdoor furniture was well placed around the villa so that you weren’t tired of sitting in the same place and you had several areas to choose from if you wanted to sit outside. The kitchen was well stocked with various pots, pans and dishes to cover our large group and more. The villa was great for entertaining guests and of course all the IT nerds in our group loved having the wifi!

We were in the vicinity of some very good beaches and restaurants. We spent a lot of time on Reggae Beach with the children, a lovely vibrant and frie
