About St Kitts and Nevis
The islands of St Kitts and Nevis are located in the Leeward Islands, with St Eustatius, Saba, St Barths and St Martin / St Maarten located to the north-northwest, Antigua and Barbuda lie to the east-northeast and Montserrat to the south. The two islands of St Kitts and Nevis form a twin-island federation, which is the smallest sovereign state in the Americas in both area and population.
Although small in size, and separated by only 2 miles of water at the closest point, St Kitts and Nevis are blessed with luxuriant rainforests and steeped in history with St Kitts having been the first in the Caribbean to have been settled successfully by European settlers. St Kitts’ history has brought it distinction in the present as it has the Eastern Caribbean’s sole man-made UNESCO World Heritage site: Brimstone Hill Fortress. Nevis was once known as Queen of the Caribees as she was one of the richest islands in the days of sugar plantations.
The ambiance of these islands will captivate you as soon as you arrive in St Kitts and Nevis. Dense pristine rainforests cover the mountains offering splendid hiking, green fields of sugarcane run to the ocean, where scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, sailing, windsurfing or kayaking can enjoyed. There are also beautiful, uncrowded beaches where you can relax, with the waves of the blue-and-aquamarine ocean lulling you to sleep and the ever-constant trade winds are on hand to cool you as the sun shines high overhead.
The islands offer an unhurried carefree lifestyle yet with all the necessities of modern day living. This makes it ideal for anyone wanting to enjoy life at its best whether as a vacation home or as a permanent residence, as well as providing great opportunities for any investor looking for a suitable property. The islands are seeing some development at this time, but there is much care taken in making sure that the graduation of St Kitts and Nevis from sleepy quaint islands is managed carefully to maintain the essence of what has made them so special.
Since both Carol and Gigi are Citizens of this twin-island paradise, and have lived in both islands, they are well qualified to help you find your ideal property.
We invite you to come and get to know these islands and savour “life in the best lane”.
