Overview

Basseterre Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Blue Heaven (Unit 46) faces and overlooks the Atlantic (90 feet away) and the waves can be seen from every window and door as well as both decks. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other two singles.

Frigate Bay is an area which fronts on the Atlantic and the Caribbean and is dedicated to tourist facilities, including shops, restaurants and a new 5-star Marriott Resort and Casino and golf course. Sealofts is located on the Atlantic, adjacent to the Marriott, and consists of 25 buildings in a horseshoe shape with the open end directly on the Atlantic and tropical gardens, tall palms, fresh-water swimming pool, 2 gazebos and a large barbeque in the middle.

The Caribbean is a level ten-minute walk and restaurants, shops and a grocery store are even closer. It is 5 miles to the capital, Basseterre, with its unique Caribbean atmosphere, cruise docks and duty-free shops.

Have lunch at an old Plantation House with tropical gardens; tour the 16th Century Brimstone Hill Fortress, a world heritage site; ride the scenic railroad; take a catamaran cruise to Nevis, birthplace of Alexander Hamilton and marriage place of Admiral Nelson; take a guided hike into the rainforest to view our dormant volocano; test your skill at the largest casino in the Caribbean; relax by our pool, on our 90 foot patio overlooking the Atlantic, on our beach, in a gazebo, under the shade of our tropical trees, or just 'lime' around.

There are direct flights from Philadelphia and Charlotte (USAir), Ft. Lauderdale (Pan Am) and connecting flights on American, BWIA, Continental, Northwest and others via San Juan or Antigua. Charters arrive from Boston (GVA), Gatwick (ExcelAir)and Toronto (Signature Vacations).

Love St.Kitts!!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

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.

Great Local & Wonderful People

  • 5 of 5

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."

My girlfriends and I take...

  • 5 of 5

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.
