We had a short trip to the island and stayed here for three nights. People meeting us in St Kitts for boat ride to Nevis and property manager getting us to the property were all very efficient and nice. Amelia (property manager) even offered to take us to the airport when it was time to leave.
The property was very clean, there were supplies for us in the fridge, everything was kept up very nice.
We didn't spend much time in the pool, albeit beautiful, as we were anxious to explore the island. Three days is not enough to enjoy this beautiful place.
This trip was planned for last year, but the hurricanes made it impossible for us to get there. The owners were very nice about getting the trip rescheduled this year for us and we were happy to see that the hurricanes and little effect on this island.
The Retreat was a very special place to stay. It's a beautiful plot on a beautiful island.
The views from the property are of nearby St Kitts and the Caribbean and can be enjoyed eithe during the day from the pool side to lazy evenings on the balcony!
The house itself is a marvel in that it is unlike anywhere I have stayed in the Caribbean. It combines very modern living with the usual attractions of sun, water and easy living.
Everything works! From the well organised transfers to the pre stocked kitchen - even had an order of great wine sorted - the wonderful and unflappable Steve looked after us from day one. He was on hand for any questions and made the trip hassle free. Even gave me quick instructions on how to control everything from the a/c to the music from convenient control pads dotted everywhere.
However for all the super high tech and beautifully maintained house (the cleanest I have ever experienced) the simple attractions like the lovely mango tree by the pool and the 5 minute trip to the beach were still part og the whole experience.
The Retreat manages to retain the whole Caribbean experience while offering a bit of 5 star luxury on top. A good combination!
Thanks for everything Gareth!
