Just spent the month of March here. We had a wonderful vacation! Loved the location as we could see and hear the ocean and had a beautiful view from the huge deck. There was a beautiful breeze all the time so we never needed the air conditioning. Some days we would just sit on the deck and read or walk to the pool..Most days we had the pool to ourselves. Dale was great to deal with..always answered my emails immediately. Joyce in the office is so friendly and helpful. A lot of places to eat within walking distance. A duty free store is almost next door and so is a grocery store. We ate at Rituals often,nice salads, wraps,sandwiches, coffee, smoothies,etc..and reasonable prices. I would highly recommend staying here and will definitely stay here again next time we go to St.Kitts!!
Nice property and excellent location. Very close to beach and an easy walk to taxi stand, small supermarket and restaurants.
The Condo was beautiful. We enjoyed our stay. Dale's information of the island was a great help. The views are out of this world. We stayed in the living area and on the deck most of the time. The weather was great, especially because back home it was 18 degrees. There was a nice breeze most of the time, that the doors and windows stayed open. Sitting out by the pool and watching the ocean was so relaxing. We walked several different beaches. Spent the day at Ship Wrecked beach. And the Zip Line was so much fun!!! We were in St Kitts as our son is in Vet school at Ross. And we will be back to stay again.
We spent a week at this condo visiting our daughter during one of her semester breaks from Ross Univ. School of Vet. Medicine. The property description did not do justice to this location on St. Kitts. You are close to everything, but yet this is a quite beachfront property that makes for a relaxing visit to the Caribbean.
Everything in the condo was clean and very well-maintained. The local property management staff from the Sealofts made us feel welcome and right at home.
There are many things to see on both St. Kitts and Nevis. We had fun roaming around the island with our "near-native" daughter and seeing both the tourist and the off-the-beaten path places that the island has to offer. Thursday and Friday seemed to be cruise ship docking days, so if you're interested in some of the touristy things, you might want to avoid doing these things while the boat crowds are on the island. We especially enjoyed the catamaran trip to Nevis with a stop for some snorkeling along the way. If you take the ferry to Nevis, arrange a cab with Al's taxi service. Mr. Al gave us a great tour of Nevis and his taxi rates are very reasonable. Don't miss shipwreck beach at the extreme western end of St. Kitts. The road getting there is a bit rough in places, but the beach is worth the drive.
All of the St. Kitts information that Dale sent us before hand came in very handy. It was helpful to have this information so we could make the most out of our visit. Have a great time on St. Kitts and enjoy being on "island time."
Awesome experience!! Great condo, Great owner, Great neighbors. Walking distance to the beach, the casino (Marriott), food and golf. I would highly recommend this condo.
My girlfriends and I take a spring break trip every year, and this spot was a wonderful addition to our list of great places to go. The unit is newly decorated and just as described. The beach is close by as is much of everything else. The office is helpful, and we had a GREAT week there. Don't hesitate to rent here - you'll enjoy it.
Party Cruises and Ferries to Nevis. Train rides around the island are also available.
