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 short 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.

Wonderful vacation at this beautiful villa!
We spent a week in this lovely villa with 3 other couples and had a fantastic and relaxing time. The villa was just as described... very clean, well equipped and beautifully situated on a steep hillside for amazing views!
Phyllis & Brenda were very helpful & responsive throughout our visit. They helped us secure dinner reservations as well as set up an in-home dinner with Roger from Spice Mill... HUGE highlight for our trip, wonderful food & service.
Would also recommend the private catamaran sail during a visit to St Kitts. That was our favorite adventure overall. Highly recommend this villa and hope to return again!
Best House on the Island!
We absolutely loved this house. We enjoyed this house with another family, we both have daughters around the same age (5-6 years old) and a nanny. From the moment we walked in, we knew we had picked the right house! Clean, spacious, well wired/connected, great music system. Only small issues were the steep driveway (but well worth it for the views) and the monkeys who would occasionally sneak into the house for a quick orange!! haha. Would highly recommend renting this property. Also, if you are looking for a personal chef or an amazing beachside restaurant, contact Roger at SpiceMill- it truly made our trip. His friendliness and customer service were unparalleled and some of our favorite meals were made by his chef, Eric right in our rental property!
Thank you for your nice words about our property and services. Special thanks for your compliment to our stereo system. I spent a lot of time to choose the State-of-Art.
Hope to see you back some time.
Majestic views...special place.
We rented this place the last week of March this year with our family of four (2 adults and a 12 and 13 year old), and another family of four (2 adults and an 8 and 5 year old) plus a babysitter. It was a perfect fit for the most part, with accommodations being made to add an extra bed to the bedroom for the babysitter in the small children's room. This property is STUNNING with amazing views overlooking turtle bay and Nevis. You will never get tired of sitting on the porch or on your master bedroom deck and looking at the view. I will mention that it is a tricky and very steep hill so you will need to make sure you rent a four wheel drive vehicle, but after going up and down the hill once or twice you will get the hang of it, and I think it is worth it for the view. I felt that the house was very well laid out for our group because each side of the house has its own master and a corresponding bedroom, with an opening in the middle. The rooms were spacious and clean, and there are power outlets in american 120 v as well as european. The house itself does not have air conditioning, but the bedrooms do, which is just fine as we kept the sliding windows open to the pool deck most of the time and there was a nice breeze always coming. I will also mention that it was fun to look out and see the goats by the house and every now and again a monkey might try to scope out the house for a snack!
The property managers Brenda and Phyllis were very accommodating as well and pre stocked our villa with groceries before we arrived. They also were helpful in telling us where to go and even setting up reservations for us at the local restaurants. Nearby is the Spice mill, Salt Plage, and the very beautiful the Pavilion restaurant. Shopping/restaurants and other beaches are nearby in Frigate bay.
All the electronics in the house worked well with the exception of the "air play" feature on the stereo. This system was tricky to operate and there was no jack to simply connect a phone to the system. We got it to work for a couple days and then we couldn't anymore so we just used our own wireless speakers we brought on the trip. Internet can be spotty.
St Kitts is one of the best places we have ever been and the people are very friendly. I would mention to try to take a day trip to Nevis and sunshine beach if possible. I loved the house and will rent again in the future!
Thank you very much for your nice words. We will try to keep going the same way.
All the best and hope to see you again.
Fantastic house with great views!
The house was just as described...very spacious and well furnished. The pool was great and we certainly enjoyed all the outside sitting areas. The views of Nevis were very impressive. Phyllis and Brenda were really great! They are so responsive and helpful...so glad they took care of us for the week. Highly recommend this property!
The perfect family villa, in a stunning location.
We have just returned from a 2 week Christmas stay at Hillside. We had the most amazing time, and felt the villa was just perfect for everything we needed with our family and 3 children. On arrival the management team met us at the airport and were incredibly accommodating and happy to make sure we knew everything we needed to know. The villa was immaculate, with big spacious bedrooms and a huge communal area downstairs. The grandparents were able to stay in the self contained apartment below which worked quite well as they were able to escape the noise of the children! The best part was the view. It absolutely takes your breath away when you first walk in, and right until our last moments there we never got bored of taking in the view. A very special and unique place. Throughout our stay the team were happy to help us with anything we needed, including high chairs etc. We were incredibly happy. The only downside is the steep hill drive up to the villa, which even with a 4x4 needs to be approached with some speed. I found this quite stressful to begin with (as my husband joined us later), however once you've conquered it a few times, it wasn't a problem. Overall we were very happy with our rental, and we would definitely rent the villa again. The perfect base to explore everything St Kitts and Nevis has to offer.
Thank you very much for your nice words about our team, villa and view. We appreciate your stay and invite yu cme back any time.
This house lived up to everything that the pictures and description show. Living on the island for two and a half years, the view from this house is one of the best on the island. Everything that you could ask for or need is in this house. The house is towards the top of a mountain so a 4x4 vehicle is a must, especially if you car will be full with passengers.
**The only reason that this house is not getting 5 stars is due to a little discrepancy between us the renters, the owner, and the house managers. After our visit, we were charged for a new TV as the TV in the house had a crack in the frame of it, yet still worked fine. We noticed the crack at the beginning of our stay but did not mention anything to the house managers as we did not think it was anything to worry about as the TV worked perfectly fine. After discussing this issue with the house managers and owner, we are being charged half of what a new TV would cost due to two sides not agreeing on when the TV was broken (house managers state that they are in the house twice a month and did not see it damaged before our stay vs us stating it was broken before us). Despite this issue, I would 100% recommend this house as this issue is partially our fault for not bringing the broken TV to the owner or house managers attention early on in our trip. I hope anyone reading this review will be more mindful and ASK for a walk through at the beginning of the trip so that both parties can look over everything in the house, and decide what is damaged/missing/ect before the trip starts.
Again, this house was amazing. The owner's follow up has been very quick and professional throughout, and the two house managers were VERY nice and helped us out a lot while we were on the island. This house DESERVES 5 stars but like I said, I hope that our review will help future people be more mindful of damages to houses when they are renting.
Thank you for your mostly nice review. We are sorry for what was happened but TV was broken. As far as you couldnt reach the agreement with the house manager we made it simple - half and half.
We are fully agree with you that it would be a good practice for all renters to wall around the property and announce to the manager/owner about every seen damages. We believe everybody is doing this procedure renting a car.
We wish you all the best would like to say that you are most welcome to come back.
Very best regards
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.
