Paradise Found

The island of St Kitts in the east Caribbean is currently preparing for the cricket World Cup. A pretty island with beautiful, unspoilt views and stretches of perfect beach – golden sands fringed with palm trees -, St Kitts is most people’s view of paradise. This makes it the perfect place to invest. Already, the island’s property’s values have risen by almost double figures every year for the past ten years, and values are set to go even higher.

With very few properties for sale and a tiny population of just 39,000, of whom only approximately 50 are British, owning a property in St Kitts could prove to be one of the best investments you could make. One of the few property developments currently planned is on the former Belmont Estate sugar plantation to the north-west of the country. Although currently just an expanse of fields, home to wild pigs and monkeys, the plan is to build a five-star luxury complex.

With the up-and-coming World cup, the Government has embraced the burgeoning tourist industry and has spent a lot of money on ensuring the airport, roads and general infrastructures are all up to scratch. However, the Government are keen to ensure that the island stays a paradise by developing ‘communities with a conscience’. The new development will ensure all houses are able to withstand the 150mph hurricane force winds that batter the island from time to time, and the houses will all be individual and in keeping with the style of the rest of the island. The centre of the complex will house a spa, golf course (designed by the golfer Ian Woosnam) and a recording studio. A two bedroomed apartment will start from about $380,000; a one-bedroomed cottage will be in the region of $330,000; a three-bedroomed villa is set to be around $822,000. Compared with other Caribbean resorts, the prices are good and due to the location, the properties are set to sell like hotcakes.
