We stayed 4 weeks in this Silver Reef apartment. The accommodation was very comfortable with high end kichen appliances, furniture & video equipment. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony on the
sunloungers with views over 2 pools to the golf course & sea beyond.
There was a choice of 4 swimming pools & it was never crowded as many of the apartments were unused or let to University students or professionals so the whole complex was very quiet even in the evenings.
We could walk to the Caribbean beach or a mini supermarket & restaurants in 10 minutes or the Marriott & it's Casino in 15 minutes. It was also pleasant to walk around the Golf Course in the late afternoon. We hired a car to explore the island & found deserted beaches or there are some busier ones with water activities which can become crowded when the cruise ships are in - it depends what you like.
We are going to return in 2016 as we enjoyed the island & especially the apartment so much.

It is a very modern, specious, fully furnished apartment with nice view, 3 balconies where you can dry your swimsuits and towels and access to 3 good size pools warmed by the sun. We ate the breakfast outside on one of the balconies and other meals we ate out. The only thing we missed was a coffee maker (not a perculator) and enough paper (both toilet and towels) to last until the first visit to the supermarket, for which you need a car. We rented one, which was very practical, otherwise it is easy to ask at the gate to call for a taxi. One beach is at the walking distance, but best beaches are too far to walk, as well as most of the restaurants. I liked the location and the price was very reasonable. Personal was very friendly and helpful. I would come back to stay here any time

Thank you Ricardo for the wonderful experience. I have to find housing all of the world for my company and it is very difficult when I am doing this remotely. I so appreciated going through TripAdvisor and Ricardo's quick responses to all my questions was greatly appreciated.
The place was reasonably prices and very nice. The guys were really comfortable. I would recommend this place to anyone!

We have just returned from St. Kitts and it couldn't have been better. The condo was excellent. Lots of room and full furnished with everything you would need to be comfortable including utensils, pots, pans, storage bowls, washer and dryer and satelite TV. We did have a problem with the TV but was fixed the next day. The staff at Silver Reef are very helpful in every way. Thanks to Tracy and Lloyd. The pools on site are kept clean and are very appreciated on the hot days. The beach is a 10 min walk from the site and the view of the golf course and atlantic ocean are beautiful. We used the taxi service - Seamoss and the Weatherman and found this was the best for us as we don't drive normally on the left. People are very friendly and the eating at the beach was a+. Patsy's was our favorite for fish and Bobsey's super wings were great for ribs and wings. Groceries are a little high in price and you had to get milk by Friday. Port Zante in Basseterre has great prices on liqor and jewellery as it is duty free. Overall a great place!!

They are expanding the condo and are doing MAJOR building right outside your front door. We had jack hammers and cement trucks to deal with. The owner will not tell you about this and neither will the management company until they hand you a letter telling you so upon check-in. I think this is a little too late. BTW they won't let you drive the trucks for fun either. Sleeping 6 means 2 in the living room / kitchen / dining room (aka no privacy). We also had to call maintenance for items that did not work, but they took care of those things promptly. Note: you need a car or cabs to get anywhere. Loved the island and the restaurants (especially Marshall's).

My husband and I just returned from a 10-day stay in St. Kitts. The condo was perfect for us with so much room. Everyone at Silver Reef was helpful and friendly. The condos sit in walking distance (10-15 minute walk to the Marriott on the atlantic and a little less to the fun Caribbean side) to the atlantic and to the Caribbean Sea. We will return for another special vacation in the future. The condo was nicely equiped with washer and dry within the unit which is such a nice amenity. This is a place to relax and enjoy peaceful days without the hectic pace of our lives in the States. Our next trip we will rent a car to explore the island, but taxi cabs are available at all hours.

This apartment was very nice, clean and modern.
The staff are nice and it is very secure.
It is very close to frigate bay and not too far from the town centre. I would definitely recommend this apartment to somebody visiting sk.kitts.

The apartment was well equipped, spotless and very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble for Tracey, the very pleasant lady who was there to answer any queries during our stay - she even leant us a coolbox to take to the beach! The location is great for access to the nearest beach (a few minutes drive), bars, restaurants and grocery shop. The locals are really friendly, the island pretty and charming and if you like fish, you won't be disappointed. Rent a boat from Mr Shiggidy Shack and try a Killer Bee or two on Nevis!

We stayed here in the most spacious, fabulously appointed, apartment for a couple of weeks in June this year. Weather was idyllic and plenty of beaches, on both the Caribbean and atlantic coasts to choose from. The best thing for us is the apartment is in the most excellent location from which to plan your next beach trip or sightseeing journey and simply soak up the atmosphere. Car hire definitely recommended via Bullseye - book a jeep as some side roads aren't the best! The apartment complex has a superb infinity pool to watch the sun go down with a nice cold beer in hand. We are already planning on booking the same for early next year. We loved the apartment, the island, the restaurants, relaxing atmosphere and the owner could not do enough for us before our arrival from the UK and during our stay. in our opinion, definitely the most unspoilt of the Caribbean islands and would highly recommend a visit.

The months is just flying by so quickly, sorry for the delay in getting this note to you with feedback regarding my stay at your establishments.
That was a trip from me to my sister and her friend in hopes of lifting her spirits after a terrible year..Silver Reef was just what we all needed and in particular flat number #1, Eden House pr E1..
I was pleasantly surprised and completely bowled over by the spacious accommodations, the decor, the complete layout of the entire flat, the furnishings and the view from both terraces, the full kitchen, the laundry room (within the flat).I was not expecting that level at all but I was certainly left speechless and that my friend is hard to do.
I have travelled the world over and have stayed in high and low end places ..however Flat #1 Eden House pr E1 is in another category all together. I felt at home and made sure I left the unit exactly the way I found it so the next traveler will have the same experience I did. I will highly recommend this unit to any discerning traveler visiting St Kitts and is simply looking for the best in accommodations..
I cannot wait to return and will give you enough notice to reserve this particular unit for me..
Hoping to see you and your team very soon.

Nice and clean accommodation, easy access from the airport, car rental, supermarket and attractions.
The cost was just right for what you get and I'd happily stay again (better then other places I looked into).

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely condo! The location is perfect, walking distance to bars, golf, restaurants, grocery stores and beaches. The house is well appointed, and comfortable and has 3 lovely infinity swimming pools to enjoy in the complex. The space is great for multiple guests, open floor plan and 2 bed 2 bathrooms and balconies give everyone room to relax. The owner and condo staff are extremely helpful and quick to respond. We would love to come back to this location and recommend highly. This is the place to stay in St. Kitts.

This condo is in an excellent location to get to the beach, golf course, and to town. Unit it on the first floor, and has views of the ocean. An easy walk to the beaches on the Sea side where there are beach bars, and food. Condo had excellent internet service, and the unit is nicely decorated and comfortable. Kitchen was nicely stocked with pots and pans and dishes, we were able to cook meals easily. Grocery store was easy to get to. Has a washer and dryer in the unit which was great.
Appreciated Ricardo's help, he answered all my questions in a timely manner before our stay and during.
They have several pools, and one of the pools is right by the unit. We were always the only ones there, like having a private pool.
Enjoyed our visit to St Kitts, beautiful island!

This condo is conveniently located close to South Frigate Bay beach and the restaurants located both on the beach, and along the strip close to the Marriott resort. Although we rented a car to explore the island, we also enjoyed walking to the beach, stores and restaurants close by. The Silver Reef Condos were modern, nicely-landscaped, safe, and quiet. The pools were very nice. There was no hot tub, and the pools were not heated. The unit was very modern with plenty of dishes, pots/pans, kitchen tools. We were thankful for a coffee maker! Previous guests (we think) had left salt/pepper, trash bags, & paper towels. The linens in the 2nd bedroom were dirty and we had to change them. (Disgusting) Tracy, in the condo office, was very friendly and helpful!

This was our first trip to St. Kitts. This condo has the perfect location. Close to the airport, beaches, grocery stores, and lots of great places to eat. Tracie was very friendly and helpful as was Lloyd. We met several couples who spend each winter at Silver Reef. We will definitely consider this unit again when booking our next trip. No complaints!!

Gated complex with 24 hour staffing at the gate, so it felt secure. Three good pools kept pretty much immaculate. Central location between Basseterre and the southern beaches. Walking distance to "The Strip". Well appointed, but could use a few more kitchen utensils. Excellent wifi and cable TV, Three nice back porches to eat or relax on. Air conditioning in each room that worked well. Parking right out the front door. We were a family of four, and it felt quite spacious.
I would have given 5 stars, but I think the unit needs a deep cleaning and a little maintenance. It was not a problem for us, but the whole place is tiled, and the grout was getting a bit black. Some paint touch ups would do.
Overall I'd do it again or suggest it to a friend no question. I think what we got for the price was a very good deal.

The apartment was lovely. two good sized bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, had everything we needed for our self catering holiday.
It was quite close to the beach and about 10 minute walk from the Rams supermarket, although it's best to hire a car if you want to get around the place easier. St Kitts is wonderful to explore and safe to drive around!!!! (I drove into town, 10 mins if that) most days with just the 2 young ones and always felt safe...

we loved this condo. we stayed with another couple and we each loved it just the same. very clean. owner and property manager were great to deal with. property is secure and close to the Marriott and perfectly located on island. great restaurants nearby. small infinity pool right outside the condo that is empty and you have all to yourself. I would highly recommend renting a car though. we will recommend this place to others in our area. st kitts is a beautiful island. we used leeward boat charters for an all day catamaran tour to nevis. Highly recommended too!

Very disappointed. After reading the owners description which advertised this place as a "Brand new condo" that is "beautifully decorated" we were two couples and all were shocked on arrival. I also cannot understand other recent reviews - I am very suspicious. This place was completely run down and filthy dirty. I wish I could post photos as I have an entire set that back up everything I am about to share.
- All areas - Tile and grout floors were filthy black - especially kitchen and bathroom #2
- Curtains on 4 sets of sliders in main living area were horrendous looking, stained all over, torn in multiple places and I know it sounds silly but ridiculously heavily wrinkled - making the place look horrible - not luxury.
- Coffee table has glass set into a wood frame - there is a gap all the way around the edge of the glass that was just filled with crumbs and dirt. Disgusting.
- Dining sliding door latch was broken - hanging by 1 screw. Would not lock.
- Kitchen stove glass top was in such rough shape it was crusty around the burners..
- We had just gone grocery shopping but the cabinets and drawers in kitchen were so dirty we kept everything out on the counters.
- Pots and pans were not only dirty but in really rough shape - twisted, non-stick coatings all scraped off.
- Clear glass wall in shower was so filthy you couldn't see through it.
- Bottom of sink in bathroom, especially the stopper was crusty.
- Window screen was completely clogged with dirt.
- Mattress has horrible dark yellow and red-orange stains (sheets didn't fit well and slipped off during the night to reveal this).
- AC Unit in bedroom two makes such a loud vibrating sound when running that we were unable to use it - even with ear plugs. Sleeping with the sliders open was a problem because there is loud music that carries up from "the strip". It was loud and ran until 2 or 3am each night. Sleeping here (or not) was the worst part.
- Window glass in the window in bedroom 2 was smashed. It appeared that someone had tried to break in. The exterior shutter had obviously been broken and it appears as though someone tried to pry the window open and broke it.
- Something was wrong with the master mattress. It had been turned upside down before being made - trouble is it is a one-sided mattress. It felt awful but we were afraid to turn it right side up given everything else in the place - we were afraid that it was flipped because it too was filthy on top.
We had booked this place only for a weekend at the end of our trip so we decided to just live with it as is rather than complain and finding an alternative at that point was unlikely. We have been staying at similar vacation rentals all over the world for over 10 years and have always very carefully selected properties. We have never experienced this kind of thing before nor have we ever had to write this kind of review before on a vacation rental.
The bottom line is with some necessary updating and seriously needed repairs and a really deep cleaning this place could be nice.As it stands right now I would never stay here again nor would I recommend it to others. The outside of the buildings and pools were fine.
