When it comes to location, Oleander is hard to beat. This modern, exceptionally well furnished beachside apartment is superbly situated, being sandwiched between St Kitts' premier golf course, (the “Royal St Kitts”) and the lovely North Frigate Bay Beach, just along from the Island's award winning Marriott Resort. The Caribbean beach, with its numerous bars/restaurants, known locally as “the Strip”, is just 7 minutes gentle stroll away, and there's a large selection of popular restaurants, shops, food stores, hairdressers and a taxi rank just a few hundred yards away. So, unlike many accommodations on the hilly Island of St Kitts, the beaches and all necessary amenities are right on hand, making the rental of a car unnecessary. Whether you are looking for fine dining or a burger, cocktails or the local Carib beer, you will find it all within a stone's throw.
Oleander is a privately owned modern first floor apartment on a beachfront condo development which boasts a large communal swimming pool, a whirl pool and a tennis court. Poolside sunbeds and chairs are provided for your use. If you are looking for a really well equipped holiday home to provide a 'home from home' experience, then look no further.
The well maintained spacious apartment has been decorated and fitted out to a high standard and offers an open plan living and dining area and a fully equipped kitchen with modern appliances, including cooker, dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer, blender, coffee maker, toaster and kettle. A flat screen TV, both DVD and CD players and a selection of DVD's and CD's are provided for your entertainment, together with a selection of holiday reading. Cable TV and Wi-Fi internet are also included for your convenience.
French doors lead out from both the living space and from the master bedroom, onto a spacious 32” covered terrace, which is comfortably furnished to enable you to relax and enjoy both the fabulous sea view and the cooling Atlantic breeze. Being south facing, by morning you can watch the sun rise over the Atlantic Ocean, by day it's the perfect place to catch the sunshine, and by evening you can take in the spectacular sunsets while enjoying a cocktail or two.
You have the choice of renting Oleander either as a 1 bedroom (890 square feet) or, for an additional fee, add on a 2 bedroom (1034 square feet) suite. The master bedroom has a king bed whilst the second bedroom can be set up as a King or a Twin room. Each room benefits from ample built in closet space, hairdryer, radio, and alarm clock and there's a flat screen TV in the master bedroom. The spacious bathroom is fitted with a large walk in shower. There's also a large sofa bed in the lounge which will accommodate 2 additional guests (for an additional charge) which makes Oleander ideal for groups of 2 – 6 persons.
Ceiling fans and AC are fitted in all rooms, but with wonderful trade winds wafting through you will often find neither is needed.
All towels and extra bed linens are provided and there's a washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board for your use.
St Kitts has some wonderful beaches, some with bars, restaurants and beach loungers for rent, others totally deserted. So if you fancy taking yourself off to a deserted beach to play Robinson Crusoe for the day, we even provide you with beach towels, beach chairs, a cool bag, a sun umbrella and picnic essentials!
Oleander really is 'home from home', in the perfect location on a 'Special Gem' of an island; and for that reason many of our guests return each year.
Rates quoted are based on the 1 bedroom apartment for up to 2 persons. To qualify for the discounted weekly rate, a minimum stay of 7 nights is required. Shorter rentals are available (min 4 nights) but the rates will not include the stated discount.

We will meet you at the airport and settle you into Oleander, and should you wish, we can organise to stock the fridge with your essentials in readiness for your arrival.
You will be provided with full details of what’s on offer so that you may plan you holiday to suite yourself. And if you need any help in organising tours, car hire or are just looking for recommendation for a special treat, we are only too happy to assist by sharing a wealth of local knowledge. A local rate cell phone will be at your disposal for the duration of your stay.
But be sure to make time to just kick back and enjoy the laid back pace of life and to get to know the local Kittitians, some of the friendliest people in the West Indies. Their hospitality is the reason why so many people return year after year to this special gem of an island which has recently been ranked at #2 in a list of the 16 Best Caribbean Vacations and #4 in a list of the 12 Best Islands in the World by US News & World Report One of “5 Caribbean Islands to Discover Now” by MSNBC; one of the “top 12 spots that should be on your list for 2012” by Caribbean Travel + Life Magazine; Brimstone Hill Fortress was named as one of “10 Great Places to Explore the World’s Best Kept Secrets” by USA Today; St Kitts was also named a top destination for 2011 by both AOL Travel and British Airways. So looks like the secret is out….come play in paradise!!!
