We had a wonderful holiday - batteries fully recharged. Sue and Ray are a lovely couple and were very welcoming - made us feel at home straight away. Accommodation was spotless. Cracking big gardens with lots to see and do. Chenille apartment had steps directly into the garden and views of the Atlantic. Sue is very knowledgable of St Kitts life/surroundings and was eager to guide us when we asked for advice. We were brought fresh fruit from the garden - delicious. After our long journey Sue picked us up at the airport, had kindly got some provisions in for us and arranged our car hire pick up from the house (thank you :-)). Both Ray and Sue were great with our kids which is very important to us and helped us to relax and enjoy our holiday. So glad we didn't pick the Mariott experience. Beautiful island, beaches and people. Would go back to St Kitts and Mule House in a flash - highly recommended.
