St Kitts rentals are quite numerous, and many of them are as exclusive as the ones you can find on islands like Antigua and Anguilla that are frequented by movie stars and jet setters. This is also true of Nevis rentals that can be found very near its capital city of Charlestown. Here you can stay in one of the finest luxury hotels in all of the small island nation, and still be on or near its most popular beach. The quintessential St Kitts and Nevis vacation rentals are found at one of the finest resorts on either island.
The prestigious Nevis Four Seasons resort offers both luxurious hotel-style rooms and suites as well as Nevis rentals that include some of the most elegant villas and mansions to be found in the Caribbean. This elite resort spreads up from Pinneys Beach into the hills that surround the capital city of Charlestown.
It is up in the hills that the finest of St Kitts and Nevis vacation rentals can be found. Nonetheless, these are very small islands, so if your villas are located up in the hills, you can still get to the beaches in a very short time. The different villas in these Nevis rentals often come equipped with swimming pools and similar facilities, and can include daily housekeeping service. Some even come equipped with golf carts for easy access to the nearby championship golf course.
The cheapest St Kitts rentals, will be found around the capital city of Basseterre. Here, you can find a few townhouses and condos, as well as charming cottages and bungalows better suited to budget vacations. The majority of these St Kitts rentals will be found in the area around Frigate Bay, which contains the liveliest and most popular of the beaches on either island. Here you will find a number of hotels, lively beach bars and music spots, as well as dining venues and souvenir shops. If you are looking for something more exclusive and secluded, you might want to look towards Turtle Beach, located on the far southern tip of the island of St Kitts at Turtle Beach. This pristine stretch of sugary-white sand is very undeveloped, containing only one boutique hotel. Development plans call for an 18-hole golf course and two luxury resorts.
Those who have booked St Kitts and Nevis vacation rentals can still receive many of the services and facilities that resorts have to offer. You can book even the most remote property as your home away from home, and you might have booked it directly from the owner. But, that owner is probably able to put you in touch with local tour operators able to provide scuba diving and snorkeling excursions or other tours just about anywhere on the islands. Some vacation rentals here might, in fact, not involve stays on land at all. Cruises around these islands are very popular, and there are several operators who will charter out crewed bareboat ships for short term vacations. These can be a good value for families and small groups.
