Our Turtle Beach Cottage is right on the beach! Fabulous views to our sister island of Nevis, Ocean and Reef! Watch pelicans dive, sting rays leap and turtles bobbing their head up to catch a breath! Peace and quiet minutes away from restaurants and activities.

The space

Our cottage is spacious and very comfortable! We sit directly above Turtle Beach with amazing views across the 2 mile channel to the Island of Nevis.
The bedroom has a pillow top king bed, flat screen cable TV, air conditioning (in the bedroom only)
and ceiling fans. The cottage is screened, so you can sleep with the ocean breeze and the sound of tree frogs and night herons There is NO PLACE LIKE THIS ON ST KITTS!

We have a twin size "day" bed which can accommodate 1 additional person who is not too tall. Best for child, teen or small adult.

The "day bed" is located in the screened living room with ceiling fan but no air conditioning. "It's like sleeping in a TREE house" my daughter says!

We book by the week but I am happy to book a 3 night minimum stay between dates! Just email me to ask if you see dates on my calendar you'd like to visit!

Guest access

You are renting a private one-bedroom unit which sits upstairs our beach lounge. The upper floor "cottage" is very spacious with it' own balcony over the beach and deck with 2 lounge chairs. The beach lounge on the main floor is shared space from 9:30 am to 5 pm daily with a max of 8 guests who stay at our 3 bedroom Villa and guest cottage a short walk away.

After 5 pm the entire property is private for you!

Please feel free to phone me if you have any questions about the shared lounge.

Interaction with guests

I have added my document with our "Favorite things to do", as well as, many tips on car rental, restaurants, grocery shopping, fresh fish and where to get it and much more! We have an excellent property Manager available on St Kitts during the summer months when we are off-island. I can be reached by email and phone 24/7

Email me if you are interested in less than 7 nights stay as I am willing to book shorter stays between dates to fill the calendar.

Other things to note

Turtle Beach is a natural beach and is not groomed by machines. We do rake up in front of our property. Sargasso Seaweed comes and goes with the tides. Cockelshell Beach is a 12 minute walk away and has no seaweed, crystal clear water and is calm. Turtle Beach has the BEST snorkelling reef accessibly by land. Bring your own mask and we have fins available!

My daughter's wedding took place last week right on Turtle Beach, so we rented the Cottage for the newly-weds' honeymoon. The location of the cottage is truly spectacular, with the beach literally on the doorstep, and stunning views across to Nevis. Penny was extremely helpful in the weeks leading up to the wedding. The cottage itself is beautifully maintained and very comfortable (I can vouch for that as I stayed there with my daughter the night before her wedding). The newly-weds were thrilled with their accommodation and the facilities of the beach lounge. It is a perfect place to stay and explore St Kitts. Turtle Beach is usually quiet, great for just chilling or snorkelling, kite boarding etc. More lively Reggae Beach is within easy walking distance (Friday night's 'Lobsterfest' is a must!), and there are many other excellent beaches and eating places just a short drive away. I am already discussing with Penny the possibility of renting the cottage next year for my husband and I to spend our anniversary there.

We absolutely loved this little piece of paradise. Very secluded and relaxing. Our original honeymoon plans fell through last minute due to all the hurricanes. We stumbled across this little gem in our search of islands not as affected. Penny responded immediately and helped us shore up our plans (including car rental) just days before our wedding. The location is absolutely beautiful and right on the beach and the cottage has so many unique touches like a friendly little bird that greeted us every morning. The view of the ocean and Nevis is incredible. They even started off our stay with some chilled Prosecco to toast our honeymoon. The communication with Penny, Ricky and Franklyn was great the entire time. I would definitely recommend staying here.

This place has everything for the perfect getaway! The cottage is secluded right on the beach with the best views! There is coral reef for snorkeling just by the pier as well that we really enjoyed. Franklyn the property manager is the best! Very insightful for places to eat and directions. We ran into him multiple times outside the house and he always made sure we were enjoying ourselves. Do not hesitate to book this cottage it truly was the perfect destination for our honeymoon!

My wife and I spent four days and nights at Penny's place and had a great time. The beach is very quiet and private with great snorkeling and great views of Nevis. The house itself is very comfortable, bright, and airy, and the downstairs bar is also very convenient. The location is also very convenient to Reggae Beach and the water taxi to Nevis. We would absolutely recommend Penny's place to anyone, and we hope to come back sometime soon!

My husband, daughter, and I loved every minute of staying in this beautiful house. Surrounded by nature, amazing creatures, and facing one of the most gorgeous views you'll ever find, this house pretty much has it all. We arrived to a fridge already stocked with eggs, bread and orange juice.... who does that?We were given a cell phone to use for local calls or to contact Franklyn or Liz (who is very helpful for booking tours or making suggestions). Franklyn was great, handled issues promptly, and sweetly expressed concern for our daughter sleeping on the daybed in the living area. He offered a blow up mattress for the air conditioned bedroom (which we later accepted- the temp was fine with the doors open, but mosquitoes took advantage of her (it IS the tropics, after all... so we moved her into the bedroom). Keeping the bedroom closed kept mosquitoes out of that area, and during the day, the breezes in the rest of the house were perfect to keep us cool without the need of air conditioning. On the first morning, we were awakened by the crows of the rooster that free-ranges with hens all over the property (this wasn't every morning). We made coffee, opening the doors to the views and tropical breezes, and were immediately greeted by an adorable tweeting bird hopping around inside on the furniture. He continued to tweet until I curiously translated his tweets to hunger and placed a piece of bread for him on the table. He hopped up on the table inches from me and grabbed it, shared it with his mate on the porch, and would come back periodically to ask for more. He was ADORABLE and this became our daily routine with him- he would appear, tweeting as soon as we were up. Monkeys also roam the property but are shy, so a sighting here and there is fun and unexpected... sometimes behind the house, sometimes hopping around on our roof, or curiously watching us in the trees along the road. Huge crabs also scatter around as well on the sandy spots surrounding the house. The house has a shared bar/communal kitchen and lounging areas on the lower level and we enjoyed getting to know the other renters (most of the time, you'll have the whole area/beach by yourself though). The bar is AMAZING and makes it easy to mix what you want or grab a beer/soda/water without going anywhere, just pay your tab or replenish at the end of the week. We had excursions (zip-lining and a catamaran snorkeling adventure which were fantastic), and explored other beaches, etc. but we had days we didn't leave the house at all as we found it to be our favorite spot on the island. It's therapeutically relaxing looking at Nevis, listening to waves crashing, and floating in the beautiful water. You have snorkeling gear, a kayak, boogie boards, etc. too... so why leave? Snorkeling is good, though we didn't feel comfortable going out to...

This was a beautiful house/location, and had all the necessary accommodations. The view overlooking Nevis, and listening to the waves crash at night were everything we could have asked for in a vacation spot.
