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.

Fantastic house with great views!

  • 5 of 5

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 glad they took care of us for the week. Highly recommend this property!

The perfect family villa, in a stunning location.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Awesome house!!

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Dear Rob, 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 Edward

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!!!

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!

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.
