The Villa is a relaxing home away from home. It was great to have the villa to come home to after a day on the beach. With the breathtaking scenery, we could have spent the whole vacation on the veranda! The ocean breezes, the scent of the slightly salt air and the sound of the waves crashing below are a vacation in themselves. Don't miss Cockleshell beach, South Frigate Bay or Caribelle Batik!

Thanks so much for your generosity in sharing your wonderful vacation home with us. We'v had a blast to say the least! The island was very interesting, the people, buildings, shopping, historical sites, flowers, BEACHES, food. What an adventure. The friction between children over video games and turns on the internet was overcome by the shreiks of glee over a big wave, the "falling bush" game, and the peaceful music and movies and visits on the veranda. We all enjoyed trying new food, sharing your recipes (with an island flavor) and dinners out at Mr X's, Ballahoo and Monkey Bar. The rum punch, carib, ting (and occasional Scotch and water for consistency's sake)enhanced the experience. Jesse's birthday (10) and learning to eat with chopsticks and holes on the beach. Jordan and Mia having such a great "girls" time together. Colin, Jesse, and Mia's Pirates of the Caribbean game and movies- so many great memories! But overriding all were the views, oceans, breezes, CONSTANT perfect temperature and peaceful feeling. Thanks so much to Malcolm and Sunny's friendships, companionship and allowing us this vacation with your family. We owe Malcolm many things, but especially for the rental car magic! We will always remember our St Kitts experience

March - April 2007What a wonderful holiday we've had. Don't want to leave! Mine and the children's first time but husband has stayed at Halfmoon Villa many times now. It's lovely and peaceful up here, very comfortable and the view is breathtaking. I just love it, and we're already planning our next visit. - Manchester, England
February 2007We go home tomorrow after a perfect months stay in your wonderful home. We have had a fantastic holiday, this was our 2nd visit to St Kitts and hopefully not our last. The island is beautiful and the people so friendly and helpful. We hired a car for 3 weeks, so we could see everything, my favorite beach has to be Cockleshell bay, peaceful, beautiful and good for 1st time snorklers like my son (13). Thank you once again. - Cornwall, England
August 2006Lovely villa, we have enjoyed our stay, hope to visit again in the not too distant future. - Birmingham, UK
April 2006My family and I had the pleasure of staying in your villa in St. Kitts last week. It was perfect! We enjoyed the scenery from the balconies and had the comforts of home. If I ever hear of anyone going to the beautiful island of St. Kitts, I will certainly recommend your villa. Thank you! - Karen R., St. Paul, MN
January 2006Gorgeous villa- it was a wonderful week, beautiful view! Thank you for letting us share your house! - Pottstown, PA
December 2005This is our first time to St Kitts. My mom and dad was born here. Our stay here was fab, this is one of the best places to be. Its nice cool breeze overlooking the ocean is great! This is or was our honeymoon, we got married at the Marriott on 30 December!
We enjoyed staying here a lot, your home is very nice-great view, cool breezes, private and the place is in great shape, clean and comfortable
July 2004After an exhaustive few years of working, I needed a break. Your house, your amazing home, took the stress out with the tide. The never ending cool ocean breeze and sound of the crashing waves put me to sleep every night.
The island itself is beautiful -- I never realized how diverse an island could be from sandy beaches to the deep rainforests, just breath taking. We also did 10 dives with Auston Macleod of Pro Divers (www.prodiversstkitts.com), St. Kitts is now my favorite dive site. With everything seems to sit at 60 feet or less so the tanks last a _long_ time. With 100 reefs and just as many wrecks we never got bored. Don't make me go home! Dreaming of living here. - Salt Lake City, UT
Thank you for a wonderful week on St. Kitts. I will absolutely be returning for another stay at your beautiful villa. St. Kitts is such a pleasant island with friendly people, good restaurants and gorgeous views. I was surprised at how unspoiled it remains for now at least!

For future visitors, I recommend:
Bring your own snorkel equipment and visit any beach on the Caribbean side of the island for gorgeous sea life. (The Atlantic side was too rough for us.)
Visit the new Marriott for a day of decadence at their pool and casino.
Visit the beautiful garden at the Caribelle Batik Shop.
Rent a car and see the whole island especially visit the outdoor bar at Turtle Beach on the peninsula and feed the monkeys.
- Atlanta, GA
I just got back from my second stay at Half Moon Villa. It is at such a wonderful location: up on the hill for sea breeze (no bugs), a quick drive to town (we rented a Suzuki Carry Van), a walk from the golf course and Marriott (for when you want to be pampered) and right near the unspoiled beauty of the peninsula.

Things I'll do again next time:
Thanks again for the wonderful experience. I am looking forward to coming again some day. - Windsor, CT
- Spratnet - $20 US for a HUGE!!! fire roasted lobster.
- Volcano Hike - nice challenge...get a guide though.
- Turtle Beach - quiet beach bar at the end of the peninsula. They let us feed the monkeys and massive pig.
- Blue Anchor - nice bar to hang out with Ross students.
- CSR Coconut Rum - my new favorite. (mix it in the blender with ice, limeade and passion fruit or whatever you find at the market.)
- Bambu's - Best Pinacoladas I have EVER had!!! (went back four times.)
- Beach on end of peninsula - can't remember the name but it is calm and empty.
- Snorkeling off of White House Point - AWESOME!!! There are even cannons and a huge wreck within a stones throw from the shore.
- Food: I really like the "Guava Cheese" and local backed goods at the supermarket.
- Shopping: I'll go back to Island Glass in Basseterre, and Caribelle Batik up on a cool plantation (first plantation, on the first island in the Western Hemisphere to free their slaves - 30 or so years before the US.)
I have enjoyed our stay so much. Great hiking and scuba diving. The house is beautiful and this is a great location to just relax and look at the ocean. Thank you.
