Visit in April

I send this message from France (just near Paris) and don't write well in english!

With my husband we think about a stay in Saint Kiits and Nevis in April 2014.

We have visited Dominica,Sainte Lucia (in the south,too many tourist for us in the north),Grenada and we like nature,rain forest,not too many people,beaches.

We think that Saint Kitts and Nevis are both islands good for us.

First problem,we have to take a flight to Saint Martin and after to Saint Kittts or Nevis.Is Winnair a goog idea?Witch luggage can you take ?Is it necessary to book a long time before your trip?

We prefere small hotels or bead and breakfast.We have seen Timothy beach and hermitage plantation,is it a good idea?For a stay from 12 April to 26 April is it necessary to book in advance?

A week on each island or more in one?

Is it possible to rent a car in Saint Kitts and go to Nevis with the same car?Is it necessary to book for the ferry with a car?

All suggestions are well for us.

April is a good time to visit as weather is quite nice at that time of year.

From St. Martin you can fly to St. Kitts or Nevis on either Winair or LIAT - both are local "commuter" airlines that fly small planes so it's always wise to book your flights in advance - I recommend 3 to 6 months. Go to the Winair and LIAT websites to find their respective baggage policies. The planes are small so luggage space is at a premium.

Timothy Beach Resort and Hermitage are both nice places. Definitely book in advance as your visit coincides with Easter Week which is a popular time for tourists

There are lots of interesting things to do and see on both island so a week on each island is a good idea.

Most car rental companies on on St. Kitts will allow you to take the car over to Nevis on the Seabridge Car Ferry but a few don't so check with the rental company before you book - if the company you selected doesn't allow you to take the ferry simply choose a different company. Keep in mind that if you rent a car on St. Kitts and take it to Nevis you'll have to bring it back to St. Kitts at the end of your stay (you cannot leave it in Nevis). That means you'll be flying in/out of St. Kitts. If you get a different car when you are on on Nevis you can fly back to St. Martin from Nevis rather than going back to St. Kitts.

The car ferry DOES NOT accept pre-booking. You just show up and get on the next ferry.

If you decide to get a different car on both islands than you can take the "regular" passenger ferry between islands.

Honestly, it doesn't make any difference which island you visit first - it's a little like asking whether you should wear the blue shirt today and the red one tomorrow or the red one today and the blue one tomorrow.

The cost of dinner at Hermitage is going to be dependent upon how many course you have and what you decide to eat. Appetizers generally runs about $8US to $12US, Main Course run around $25US to $30US, Desserts run around $8US.

Timothy Beach Resort is located near several beach bars that sometimes have music in the evening. Depending on the location of your room you could hear some residual noise.

For a list of Bed & Breakfast places on St, Kitts - scroll up to your original post and just above you'll see where is says "Browse forums" followed by the words "All, St. Kitts and Nevis Forums, Nevis " printed in BLUE Letters. Click on "St. Kitts & Nevis Forums". On the new page just above the topics you'll see "Jump to a more specific Forum" . Use the drop down menu to select "St. Kitts". Go to the top of the new page and click on "Hotels" then select "B&B and Inns" - there you'll find a list of the 11 B&B's & Inns on St. Kitts.
