The place was nice and clean but it was just too hot to sit in the living area. The grounds needed better maintained. There were areas that had not been moved or weed whacked in who knows how long. Barbara and Martin were very nice.
We just got home last night from a week vacation in St. Kitts, and the first thing I wanted to do this morning was to write a review for the condo. We are a family of 4- mom, dad, and 9-year old twins, and this condo was the perfect home base for our vacation.
The condo is exactly as it appears in the pictures and has everything you need- pots, pans, plates, utensils, coffee maker, lots of towels and bedding, and plenty of space for our family of four. The condo owner is wonderful and very responsive to all my questions before we traveled! And everything was ready right when we arrived in St. Kitts.
The condo is also in a perfect location! Right next to Ritual Coffee House and that is right next to a Ram grocery store. The condo complex is behind a wonderful Italian restaurant (Ciao), and a short walk to both the beach on the Atlantic side at the Marriott (not as rough as the beach right near the condo), AND to the beach on the Caribbean side at Timothy Bay (calmer water and lots of beach bars and restaurants).
Finally, the week we were there it was very quiet (I guess the end of April is not a peak time :))... and the best part of this condo according to my 9 year olds, was the pool! They had it to themselves the whole week and it is literally steps from the condo.. close enough that we felt comfortable letting them head out there in the morning for a swim while we got ready for the day. So every day we started our day by the pool- breakfast and coffee while the girls swam... and every night we ended the day by the pool- usually with some ice cream for the kids poolside :)
I would recommend this condo to anyone who isn't into staying at a big corporate resort,and who appreciates having a little more space and comforts from home on a family vacation.

We stayed here 14-21 October 2015.
The accommodation was as pictured. Everything was clean, of good quality and very pleasing to the eye. As I would expect to see in the U.K
Barbara was very accommodating and always at hand. The WiFi connection was good and the satellite T.V meant we didn't miss any of the Rugby World Cup nor the Premiership football (to Bob's delight)
The location was ideal for us. At no time did we feel isolated. The shops and restaurants were within 3 minutes walking distance.
To sit in the lounge and hear the refreshing sound of the waves against the rocks. You knew you were on holiday. It was peaceful and idyllic.
Would we come back to St Kitts? Yes
Would we stay in Paradise Found? Yes definitely. Absolutely loved it! Thank you Barbara.
We booked a last minute trip to the island and wanted to stay close to the ocean, restaurants, and bar, and this was the perfect location. Making the booking was easy, and the owner even offered to pick us up at the airport, which was extremely thoughtful.
The condo itself is in a dated community, but the unit is very close to the beach. Just at the entrance to the community, there are stores, bars, and restaurants. The beach is very close, with the Atlantic side within steps from the front door, and the Caribbean side within 10-minutes. I was a bit disappointed by the Atlantic beach because there was a lot of seaweed on shore, so we couldn't swim. But there was a nice pool on property where we spent some time.
The condo is a good size. There is a small living room with a large kitchen and dining area. There are plates, glasses, silverware, etc. if you prefer to cook. The bedroom was comfortable and had a nice air conditioning unit. There was also a washer in the bedroom. The bathroom was a good size and very clean. My only complaint is that I wish there was a spot to put soap and shampoo without putting these items on the tiled floor.
Overall the place is in a great location, but I do wish we had the opportunity to visit other beaches on the island. But that will give us something to look forward to on our next visit!
