Family holiday of two adults and two older teens. Booked direct with owner, which went mostly without problem,although (as with previous reviewer) arriving on a Saturday afternoon when the office was shut was potentially a nightmare. Luckily I remembered the review that said the loft was left open, with key inside, because this had not been communicated prior to the visit. Peaceful and very quiet at time of our visit for most of the time, apart from short period of noisy neighbours in adjoining property. Several of the properties were leased by US vet/med students and we hit the end of term period. Most sealofts are semi-detached, which I hadn't appreciated at time of booking, and walls are quite thin. Living area is open plan, and quite compact. Double bedroom is very small with very limited space (eg only room for one bedside table), but upstairs bedroom is large with two double beds. There is one bathroom with overbath shower in main living area, and an additional shower on basement floor. Kitchen fairly well equipped, although had only 1 oven tray but 7 frying pans! Lovely balcony however this varies property to property (some very little balcony) and beautiful gardens. Atlantic coast within view and easy reach:however was rough to the point of being dangerous during our stay, and lots of debris/rubbish was washed up on the beach. Caribean ocean was within easy walk and much calmer, with great bars. Complex pool was small but beautifully kept, and very warm. The couple of maintanance issues we reported were dealt with promptly and with good humour.
I had mixed feelings about St Kitts: went to Carriacou (Bogles roundhouse) year before which was more 'raw' carribean (much less luxury, much more humidity and bugs), and have to admit that wowed me far more. There is massive development going on in the St Kitts peninsular: wrecking roads and significantly changing the landscape. Much of the time I felt that I was viewed as a 'cash cow' by locals: prices were often outragous, and quality mediocre.
The holiday was pleasant, relaxing, but in some ways lacking.
