The Caribbean has long been synonymous with luxury. Year round sunshine, white sand beaches laced with palm trees and the impossible turquoise shades of the sea mean the region has eternal appeal. St Kitts and Nevis have their fair share of luxury real estate on offer, with those seeking easy accessibility and a livelier nightlife tending towards St Kitts – and those in search of a private idyll heading across The Narrows to Nevis. Whichever side of the waters is for you, we have the perfect home.
Take the Canopy Villa and Cottages, nestled 1000 feet above sea level in the exclusive Kittitian Hill resort on St Kitts. This extraordinary offering has a pool that is set high above the tropical foliage and reaches towards the horizon; the two bedroom house, complete with luxurious fittings and fixtures and bespoke artwork, has two separate guest cottages in the grounds. Ownership provides access to all the facilities of Kittitian Hill, including its world class golf course and spa and wellness centre. In all senses, Canopy Villa becomes a retreat within a retreat, a place to see the finest of the Caribbean showcased and available.
Sweet Retreat in St Kitts’ Calypso Bay defines relaxed island living. Here, the large spaces are made cosy and comfortable by soft furnishings and warm colours. The wide deck looks out to a pool, the sea and a seemingly endless supply of sunsets – each more dramatic than the last. There are some luxurious touches, too, including an Italian kitchen, custom sun shades on the deck which is made from local stone, and custom window treatments. Caribbean tranquillity has been captured in this beautiful villa.
Over on Nevis, Lemon and Lime Villa is set in 1.6 acres of landscaped gardens, and its named for the abundance of fruit trees. Only completed in 2007, this luxurious home encompasses all the traditional Caribbean stylings with light and bright high vaulted ceilings and gorgeous gingerbread woodwork. Set high on a ridge, cooled by the Trade Winds, this is a home that is all about sweeping vistas and a feeling of freedom. The infinity pool is perfectly positioned to take advantage of sunsets, and the tasteful furnishings are modern without being stark. There is a soft warmth to this home, and it’s ideal for anyone looking to exercise their green fingers in tropical gardens.
Luxury condos are also on offer, and La Plage at the Hamilton on Nevis is one of the finest. Set over four floors, this classically styled space is alongside the longest stretch of golden sand on the island. Everything has been designed to take advantage of the beautiful scenes outside, with glassless windows on terraces letting in the sea breezes and the rustle of palms. The condos at the Hamilton are as appealing to those looking to move full-time to the island as they are to those seeking a golden investment opportunity.
Whatever your aspirations or definition of luxury, we have it covered on both St Kitts and Nevis. And if you don’t find quite the perfect home, we of course have parcels of land available and can help you work with architects to create your perfect luxurious escape in the Caribbean.
