We (a couple) stayed in upper floor appartment for 1 week. The place is located 15 min by car from Basseterre, close to main road but very quiet at night. From the balcony there is an excellent view over the ocean, and from the entrance you can admire the lush green mountaines. Garden is nicely kept, enough of space in front and at the back of the house. Our apartment has 2 rooms, a large living room and a small but adequate kitchen. The most valuable assets of Mule House are its owners, Sue and Ray. From first contact via email to our last handshake they were responsive, friendly, with lot of useful local informations. Sue waited for us at the airport, helped us with renting the car, and escorted us to their home. Night sleep was always good and never hot, due to constant breeze. Same goes for sitting on the balcony. We woke up every morning at 6 am (by ourselves) made us a pot of coffee and sat on the balcony with book or iPad in hand, enyojing the sights and sounds of St.Kitts. WiFi was there but not always working in full force, using Skype was difficult, using internet much easier.
If not into Marriot or Ottley Plantation, Mule House will give you plenty of space and true Kittians wellcome. Home away from home is what came to my mind, and some repeated guests has confirmed that this is the case with Mule House.
