Palms Court Gardens, romantic cottage, luxury pool, ocean view.

Family-friendly cottage with outdoor pool and spa tub
Settled on a small hill, just off the historic town center Basseterre, with fabulous views on the harbor and the Caribbean sea, just a 3 min. walk away from the town beach and vegetable and fish market, lies the privately owned property Palms Court Gardens, surrounded by one acre lush, tropical gardens and a luxury infinity pool.
The property consists of the main house, housing the rooms of the owners, the kitchen for the restaurant (Open Mo - Sun: 9am - 5pm) and the Shell Works gift boutique, and an all wood guest cottage. The rental apartment is on the second floor of the cottage, offering the best view on the island of the historic town Basseterre, the harbor and the ocean with the neighboring island Nevis in the background.

Being on the top floor of the wooden cottage, the apartment's ambiance profits from the open vaulted Caribbean style wood ceilings with its visible beams. The decor is held in a luxurious, mediterranean 'shabby chic' style. A fully equipped kitchen with enclosed dining/living space, a spacious bathroom with walk in shower and separate toilet, a library, free Wi-Fi, a large air conditioned bedroom with one queen size and one single bed (enough space to put another bed for a family with 2 children) and a large flat screen TV, Bose radio/CD player, offers everything you look for in your home away from home.

Palms Court Gardens is privately owned. Until 2003 it belonged to the Royal Bank of Canada who for many years had their managers staying at this property. In 2003 it was sold to a local business man and his wife - an arts and crafts teacher from Switzerland. The property and gardens then were completely transformed into a mediterranean/ Caribbean dream and opened to the public the first time in 2010. Although on a day with cruise ships in port, an average of 10 - 80 visitors are touring the garden and 10 - 40 day visitors are spending some time at the pool (9am - 5pm), the guests at the cottage still enjoy their full privacy, as the apartment is located on the second floor and out of the eye of the garden visitor.

The cottage was initially built for the family's own purposes; a design studio on the ground level and a one bedroom apartment on the second floor for their private guests. It is now offered for the first time for rent.
After the family purchased the property in 2003, a 7 year period followed of extensive restorations, re-landscaping, and adding a luxury infinity pool and the guest cottage. The family finally decided to share the beauty of the gardens and the stunning ocean, town and mountain views with the public. Carrying idea was to support the Children Educational Fund St.Kitts with the generated income. A special attraction at Palms Court Gardens is Shell Works
St.Kitts, with its production site and gift shop located between the guest cottage and main house. Jewellery, gift items and home accessories, all made from natural and local materials, are produced right on location and invite the visitor to watch and talk to the artisans.

Designed and restored for the private use, each inch throughout the garden, main house, patio and guest cottage is done with extraordinary style and class, and offering all the amenities your looking for your private home away from home.

Another Amazing Stay
We chose to stay a second time, this time to celebrate our anniversary. The check in process is very smooth and the home always has a special touch. This time we had flowers waiting for us. The only issue we experienced was a faulty door lock but Rhonda dropped what she was doing and rushed over to sort it out. We’ve recommended this property to our friends and will do the same to anyone who asks!

Beautiful Views and Privacy
My partner and I loved our stay. The view of the sea and downtown was new to me even after living on island for two years. A tropical storm did pass by during our stay but we were still be able to use the pool and enjoyed the privacy. The property was beautiful and romantic!

Amazing getaway experience
We live in Nevis and came over for two nights to celebrate my fiancé’s birthday. We’re happy we found this gem of a property! The staff, accommodation, view, and location cannot be beat...really. Claudia reaches out prior to our arrival and provided detailed information on how to get here, access and connected us with Rhonda who was our on-site point of contact. Rhonda was simply amazing! She did special touches and was always available. Thank you both for such a great experience! We’re already looking forward to our next getaway!!!
