“Fantastic way to experience St. Kitts”

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Susie and Nathan's gorgeous property over the Thanksgiving holiday, and we are so glad we chose this option instead of the originally anticipated, more traditional, resort stay. Susie was helpful and informative way in advance of our stay, communicating frequently via email. She provided us with a ton of information on available activities, nearby beaches , and restaurant recommendations. We had no qualms about how we'd fill our time or if we'd be able to find quality local-recommended activities. I scheduled a massage, and my husband knew he'd enjoy golf at the local course.

Arrival was easy and welcoming. A Bullseye representative met us at the airport and drove us to the rental office, where a Ford Escape was ready for us. You really do need to rent a car; this is a remote and private area. The four wheel drive is also advisable. Avanece met us at Bullseye Rental and we were able to follow her to the property. It's a long drive from town, but gets more manageable the more often it is done. We ultimately felt the lack of crowds, the quiet, the gorgeous views, far outweighed any issues related to driving. Once we arrived at the property, Avanece gave us a thorough tour, pointing out everything necessary, down to helpful tricks with the doors, the best way to catch the evening breezes, and went through more quality recommendations for dinners and activities.

The property itself is phenomenal. Gorgeous views from virtually every room, and managing to feel comfortable and relaxing despite the size and elegance. Our bed, the couches, the deck furniture, all were great and way more than we required. Each night, I enjoyed falling asleep to the noise of the surf and wind, and woke with a gorgeous view of Nevis each morning from our comfy bed. Mid-way through the week, we agreed to prioritize lazy down-time at the house because we enjoyed it so. We loved all the various patio areas, good wi-fi, and washing machine (nice because we packed a little light and were able to wash). Loved having breakfast on the patio each morning, and the kitchen is well-stocked with all dishes, utensils, etc. that we could have needed.

Susie, Nathan and their two boys live in the lower level, but we never heard them, although we did have the pleasure of a couple random meetings at a nearby coffee shop, and my husband golfed with Nathan once. All associated with this rental were completely welcoming and hospitable - a perfect compliment to the stunning property. We can't wait to come back with family and friends. Thanks again!

“outstanding rental”
5 5 étoiles Avis écrit le 7 mai 2013 Séjour en avril 2013

We have been to St. Kitts several times but our past trips pale in comparison to this one. Our stay at Hillside Villa exceeded our expectations in every way. This was the second time that we took all our children to St Kitts, but our group this time had grown to 11 ( 8 adults and 3 grandchildren). The villa is so spacious. There was plenty of room for everyone. This trip, everyone passed on going to island attractions as we found hanging out in the villa and Turtle Beach area to be most pleasurable. Three different areas in the villa easily accommodated our entire group for meals. We didn’t even use all the bathrooms that are available. Our adult children made good use of the pool table and everyone enjoyed the infinity pool. Opening the folding doors to the pool and the magnificent view was a source of constant joy. Among some of the things you won’t read in the description are that the walls are very soundproof. Though the infants were frequently awake during the night and early risers, you never heard them until you left your room. The owners, who were on the island during part of our visit, and Avenice, the property manager, went out of their way for us and were helpful throughout our stay. You’ll enjoy the frequent visits of the monkeys and deer in the mornings and evenings. You don’t have to travel far to find the best beach spots. We especially enjoyed nearby Cockleshell Beach and we dove on the wreck at Whitehouse Bay. The Spice Mill Restaurant was terrific and we traditionally go to the Sunday brunch and incredible rain forest at Ottley’s Plantation. Otherwise, our group mostly enjoyed cooking and barbequing our evening meals at the villa.

Though this trip was to be a one time special occasion (our 45th anniversary) everyone is plotting to arrange a return trip to this outstanding rental.

The only drawback that comes to mind is that while the villa is prominently placed on the hillside, the driveway is steep. You need an all wheel drive vehicle to go up it smoothly but after an initial trip or two it becomes easier to master. Also, if you are there during mosquito season you’ll probably want to close up the doors at sunset, but there is A/C available in the bedrooms for nighttime. This is a bargain rental for a large group or several families and deserves serious consideration.

“Fabulous villa on St. Kitts!”
5 5 étoiles Avis écrit le 7 avril 2013 Séjour en février 2013
Google Traduction

Hillside House in St. Kitts, Caribbean, is situated in a beautiful setting. This is a large, luxury villa situated on a hill in one of the most remarkable locations in the Caribbean.

To start, the setting and view are spectacular from just about every room. St. Kitts is a very friendly island nation that represents the top of a sub–Atlantic mountain chain. Thus, the topography of the island is extraordinary and the topography (and view) at Hillside House are wonderful!

For a couple who has traveled from safaris in Africa, to three-star Michelin Relais and Chateaux lodgings in France, to Indonesia, Hong Kong and throughout Europe and South America, this is one of the most remarkable settings in which we have ever found ourselves. This place is gorgeous, and totally unique.

Hillside is a huge blue and white house that sits high up on a hillside with a stunning 270 degree view of Nevis, the Atlantic and the Caribbean. It is the biggest house in the area, brand new, so very clean. There are four large bedrooms that each have A/C. Downstairs there was one A/C, but we didn't need it. We enjoyed the constant ocean breezes with the 30-foot wide glass Nana Wall opened instead so we could savor this picture-perfect postcard setting - it was truly extraordinary! This was our favorite part of the house- in the lounge chairs on the deck by the 60-foot lap pool, looking at the island of Nevis and the southern end of the island.

The house is located at the southern end of the island, so very private and quiet. This means a 20 minute drive is required to get to restaurants and activities in town. We rented a Jeep, which was perfect, as the roads on the southern part of St. Kitts are mainly paved, but some are dirt that can be bumpy and winding. The driveway to the house is extremely steep. It was very exciting our first time up it, but no problem after that.

The owners were perfectly accommodating and very easy to deal with. I highly recommend them as trustworthy and responsive. When we arrived, Avenice (housekeeper) met us at Bullseye Car Rental. We followed her to the house. She did an excellent job supplying the kitchen with all the groceries on the list we e-mailed her before our arrival .She is a good resource of information for domestic questions, things to do, and restaurants. She even provided us with a couple of local cell phones to use at no charge.

The only problem we had during our stay was there was no hot water in the Master Bathroom shower, so we used one of the other showers. The owners will repair this soon. We also suggest supplying the bathrooms with more toilet paper, and paper towels. Other than that, the place was fantastic!

St. Kitts is shaped like a guitar and Hillside House is at the top of the neck of the guitar, just before the tuning keys. As such, it's about 20 minutes away from all of the tourist areas – the areas that cruise ships frequent and visit virtually seven days a week. Thus, you are in a setting that is known as a "place to visit" by cruise ship companies, but you enjoy the unique experience of being isolated from the cruise ship crowd in the most upscale, and isolated part of this island.

St. Kitts has a British heritage, so the literacy rate is high and the crime rate is very low. There was nowhere and no time at which my wife and I or the other couple with whom we traveled felt in any way compromised for safety or security. In fact, much the opposite was true. People are so friendly in this island that sometimes in the darkest reaches of the inner city of Basseterre, people kindly guided us to exactly where we needed to be.

The food at all of the restaurants we went to was exceptional! We ate our first dinner at Spice Mill, very close to the house on Turtle Beach. It had wonderful ambience and great lobster and risotto. We had lunch at a local island place in Basseterre, El Fredo's (one of the best places on the island as far as we were concerned). Other good local places were Patsy’s Beach Bar, Buddie’s in Basseterre, and at Reggae Beach Bar and Grill on Turtle Beach. We also had great meals at some of the more upscale restaurants like The Pavilion in Cristophe Bay, the gorgeous oceanside restaurant of the Beach House at the southern end of the island. (The Beach House apparently is now only open for special events.) We also had great meals at Carambola’s, Marshalls’s and at Serendipity, where we met the Prime Minister of St. Kitts sitting at the next table.

Avoiding the cruise crowds, we had great times and good food even on the beaches. Beaches close to Hillside House were beautiful and provided inexpensive rental chairs and umbrellas or palm–covered hutches at both Turtle Beach and Shipwreck Beach. We preferred the palm frond covered hutches at Shipwreck, but the food was really great at both.

My husband would have loved to have done the kite boarding at Turtle Beach, but the SeaDoo that provided the power to push tremendous water under your feet and lift you up to 30 feet was broken while we were there. So, instead - my husband (who was there for his 65th birthday), and I made the rather extraordinary decision to jump out of a plane at 10,000 feet above this gorgeous island. When you're jumping out of a plane, it's important to have a great view and the view of St. Kitts where we jumped was magnificent. We jumped from 10,000 feet and the first mile was a 120 mile per hour free fall for 35 seconds which was absolutely breathtaking. At that point, the tandem skydiver/instructor pulled the cord to the parachute and we floated down for five to seven minutes to the beach at the Marriott. It was absolutely the adrenaline rush of a lifetime.

Needless to say, we loved our week in St. Kitts and hope to return again soon!

“Awesome View and unspoiled Beaches, a great house for sure!”
5 5 étoiles Avis écrit le 11 mars 2013 Séjour en février 2013
Google Traduction

Hillside house is a large magnificent Blue and White house that is set high upon a hillside with a stunning view of the Atlantic and Caribbean as well as the Island of Nevis. It is definitely the biggest house in the area and very new so things were very clean and in excellent shape. There are four very large bedrooms all with A/C but we basically relied on the constant ocean breeze. Look at the pictures, they don't do this place justice, it is better...

The house is not located in a built up area so things are private and quiet, but this also means that a little driving to get to restaurants and activities is required. We rented a couple of Jeeps which was the way to go as the roads on the southern part of St. Kitts are mainly paved, but bumpy and winding. No problems getting around at all but the driveway to the house is the steepest I have aver been on. It was a really something our first time up it but we soon got use to it and it is no problem. Having a Jeep or some type of 4x4 is the way to go as there are lots of deserted beaches and other places to explore. It's safe to venture anywhere.

The snorkeling nearby was excellent. We saw all sorts of sea life including a huge turtle that swam right up to me to say hello.

The owners were perfectly accommodating and very easy to deal with. I would highly recommend them as being trustworthy and responsive. When we arrived we were greeted by Avenice. She manages things in St Kitts and did an excellent job of getting us from the airport to the house. She is a good resource of information for any domestic questions or for offering suggestions for things to do. She even provided us with a couple of cell phones to use while we were there at no charge.

100% of our security deposit was refunded to us via PayPal within 1 day after we got home, very nice.

If St. Kitts and Nevis is your destination than the Hillside House is really awesome.

Hillside is stunning, spacious, well equpiied and we were really looked after. From the moment we were met by Avenice at the airport we were spoilt. The well stocked fridge, on arrival was great, the first dip in the pool was awesome, the beaches were idyllic, and Sunshine beach bar makes a mean rum punch.
