About The Owner

Ricky was born and raised on St Kitts and Penny moved from Winnipeg, Canada in 1986. We built our first house at Turtle Beach in 1994 and will always have our 'home' here. Our daughters grew up on Turtle Beach and are now attend University in Canada. Penny and Ricky commute between St Kitts and Winnipeg. We are fortunate to enjoy the most peaceful location on St Kitts.

Why The Owner chose Basseterre

Peaceful location with South facing exposure and refreshing breezes, very quiet beach, great beach combing along the tidal pools and shoreline, fantastic views and amazing snorkelling right out front of the beach cottage.

What else can you ask for in a beach cottage.

We love it.

Turtle Beach is located on the South East Peninsula of

St Kitts which we think is the best part of the island. You will NEVER hear the ongoing NOISE of cars/trucks/motorcycles or experience traffic like the Frigate Bay area. It's all about the sounds of the surf, bird song and nature! 5 minutes drive will take you to some of the islands BEST restaurants and more fabulous beaches. A QUICK water taxi to our neighbouring island of NEVIS will bring you to more great restaurants, history and charm of the Caribbean!

Guestbook comments from the manager


We had a wonderful time at Turtle Beach Cottage. Our trip was very relaxing and the accommodations were excellent. Franklin took good care of us while we where there and everyone we met on the island was exceedingly friendly. We travel frequently, rarely to the same place twice, but if we are ever back in St. Kitts there is no other place we would want to stay. Thank you for making our vacation so enjoyable.

Fantastic beach cottage for a perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in st kitts staying at turtle beach. We cannot recommend it enough. The kids loved being directly on the beach, there lots of water sports equipment so plenty for them to do; including snorkeling. As it was low season most of the time we had the beach to ourselves. It had everything we needed for a really comfortable stay, including two well equipped kitchens and a bar. The hosts were great and were very helpful including finding us alternative accommodation in the face of Hurricane Irma. We loved St Kitts and Nevis and would definitely go back, as it has still a traditional Caribbean feel and especially this part of the island is very beautiful. We cannot recommend this place enough for a very relaxed holiday.

This beach cottage is paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Just 30 minutes from the city and airport. Lots of comfortable sitting spaces to enjoy the spectacular views. A good kitchen downstairs to make meals that can be enjoyed at the tables in several locations.Great restaurants just around the corner within 5 minutes driving. A perfect place for total R & R, reading, walking up and down the beach, watching others out front kite boarding in the rolling surf.. Beach is ungroomed but not a deterrent. The French doors upstairs and down make you feel like you have been outside all day. The waves rolling in at night put you gently to sleep. No A/C necessary in late April. Just a lovely place to enjoy your week away from it all. Very helpful, friendly and unobtrusive owners. Thank you Ricky and Penny for a memorable week. We'll return for two weeks next time.

Absolutely Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

This beach cottage on Turtle Bay is fantastic! Wonderful views of Nevis, ocean breezes, your own private beach and prime snorkeling just steps away. Penny and Ricky have provided everything you need for a relaxing and fun stay. The honor bar downstairs was a welcome and unexpected surprise. There is also a full, well stocked kitchen. The cottage is very well equipped and very tastefully decorated with all sorts of interesting artifacts. This is a more secluded part of the island so you will want to rent a car. Every morning provided a magnificent sunrise, viewed from the deck and the beach below. We found many colorful seashells etc. on our strolls up and down the beach All-in-all, you will not be disappointed with this beach cottage...just bring you swimsuits and sandals... and kick back. Reggae restaurant is a short walk away (Friday night is their lobster fest!!)and is fantastic... and there are many other great restaurants nearby. Penny provided many good recommendations and you won't be disappointed with any of them. We spent the days exploring the island and returned to this little slice of paradise to relax, have a few cocktails, and then head out for dinner. Definitely check out Salt Plage, just up the road, for the best sunset on the island!! You can hit up the strip of restaurants on the beach at Frigate Bay for good local eats...great for lunch. Brimstone Hill Fortress on the north end of the island is a must see!

Perfect paradise. Secluded. Private. Clean. We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

Franklin, the caretaker, was the best. Always on time, went extra mile, he knows everything, everywhere and everybody. White perfect secluded beach that we got married on! We were alone on the beach the majority of the time. Walked to Regaee beach 4 out of 5 days. Beautiful views of Nevis. Cottage was clean and just as pictured. The owners information and suggestions were great. Also, used her reerrals for the wedding which were perfect. Will be back!! Would give 10 stars if could.

BEST vacation of our lives! 3rd time's a charm!

  • 5 of 5

We've visited St. Kitts many times, but this stay was our best. It was all because of the beach cottage. The location is better than we've ever experienced. We've stayed in other properties on the island, and this one FAR EXCEEDED all the others. The ocean breeze was felt in every room. Nights enjoying the crashing waves and twinkling star filled sky, charming monkeys, and a beautiful private beach all to ourselves. The snorkeling on Turtle Beach is one of the best. We liked it so much, we are considering renting the Pereira's larger villa up the hill for our mother's 60th next year. The ocean front cottage is gorgeously decorated, the perfect Caribbean getaway. The owners were very gracious and helpful through the entire process, they made us feel at home and very special. The bedroom was VERY comfortable as well. We will be back MANY MANY times! Thank you Penny! ;-) (if you have a larger group, we'd highly recommend the owner's other property. It is a villa just up the hill, with breathtaking views. We met the folks staying there, and they invited us to dinner. The Portuguese grandmother made the most delicious homemade Portuguese meal. The villa was stunning. Very spacious, beautifully appointed, and views grander than any I have seen...from every room! We'd highly recommend both properties!)

Owner's Response: Ricky and I are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our beach cottage! We have fun decorating it and hope our guests love it as much as we do! It's great to hear when our guests of Ocean Song Villa meet up with our Turtle Beach Cottage guests and everyone enjoys each other's company. Isn't that what vacations are all about? Meeting new friends and having fun! Come back soon!

It just Magical!!!

  • 5 of 5

I think my husband and I have stayed at this gorgeous home 5 or 6 times now. We have already booked the dates for our trip next year 2018! There's no way you can stay here and not be totally happy! Its such a magical place. You will have everything you need and be surrounded by the most beautiful beach and nature. Franklin is the caretaker of this lovely spot and he is one of our favorite things about the island. His daily visits sweet personality and knowledge of the island and the house is top notch. He can fix anything and he always does it with a smile. We feel like the Pereira family and Franklin are more than friends...they are family.

I hope I never know when the last time I am staying in this is truly amazing!
