“All the praise is justified.......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014

......and we fully endorse it, but rather than repeat it we hope to add one of two pointers to help future guests. Big hotel people won't want to stay at Rock Haven, but it is an excellent choice for those who want something different. The welcome doesn't even flag if one's flight arrives 2 hours late, with Judith having stood outside Arrivals for the whole time waiting.

The Blake name, both Dr Keith's and Judith's, still carries weight in St Kitts. This was illustrated by the fact that Dr Keith dropped us at 'Cathy's' (on Timothy Beach) when we needed a snack to keep us going after a delayed arrival from the UK. He insisted that the staff there should call a taxi whose driver knew where Rock Haven is; when one particular taxi driver turned out not to be available the proprietor ran us back himself (and kindly delivered the next day the spectacles dropped in his car).

In fact Rock Haven isn't nearly as difficult to find as the Blakes think it is. If coming from Basseterre there is a gentle hill upwards from the Central Bank of the Eastern Caribbean. At the top of the hill there is a big hoarding on the left hand side of the road. Turn left here, then second left, first left and go on to the last house. (Coming from Frigate Beach it's a right turn at the top of the hill after the third roundabout).

If you are at Rock Haven for any length of time you will need a car. We would happily have used Judith's local contact, but for the fact that we needed to pick up the car on a Sunday. Hertz has a small office in the Marriott Resort (which can be seen from Rock Haven) which opens every day.

The view was wonderful, the breakfasts wonderful, the Blakes were as helpful as everyone says. The inclusion of laundry service is obviously helpful. The only improvement that we can suggest would be to provide tea and coffee makings in the Garden Suite (which counter-intuitively is the room upstairs in the main house) to be more independent than accepting the offer of using the kitchen.

We would unhesitatingly recommend Rock Haven to any reader who likes staying in B&Bs.

Room Tip: The Sanctuary suite is on the lower floor and has its own kitchen.

Certainly the best point of staying at Rock Haven was the kindness, friendliness and helpfulness of Judith and Keith. What wonderful hosts they were and made the stay that much nicer. The house is located centrally- not far from either coast (good for a walker like me) and only about 2 miles from Basseterre at the top of a hill with great views in all directions (note- it is not however where Google Earth puts it but more inland, in case you check). I stayed in the room facing the Caribbean Sea rather than the Atlantic facing room. This room received much less of the breeze but the A/C worked fine and most nights i used it. The room had cable TV for when resting in the evening and the WiFi was fast and very dependable. The breakfasts they provided were wonderful. --I did not realize that this room was actually inside their house which made me a bit uncomfortable at first, but their friendliness took away that concern once i got used to it. I would recommend this place for a stay away from the usual hotel vacation, if that is what you may be looking for.

Wow, we could not have asked for a better stay. Such a welcoming and lovely couple. Their home is just beautiful both inside and out, with a modern, stylish and traditional style house set in a small and beautiful garden. Our spacious room on the ground floor had slatted windows that helped keep the room cool with air conditioning if we wanted it.

Judith's welcoming rum punch was delicious, as were her breakfasts, and she and Keith made us feel like family friends. We learnt a lot from them. Sadly we were staying just 2 nights, but what a fabulous introduction to the Caribbean.

We would recommend Rock Haven to anyone, and one day we hope we will return.

Where to begin? I can’t adequately express in words how wonderful our stay was at Rock Haven! Our overall experience in St. Kitts was heightened immensely by the provisions at the charming B&B; Breath-taking views of the Atlantic & Caribbean, the open-air atmosphere & consistent breezes (no AC needed!), al fresco dining on the balcony each morning, extraordinary gourmet breakfasts that catered to our dietary needs while pleasing the palate, the quiet seclusion of our room so appropriately dubbed the ‘sanctuary suite’, the most divine tea direct from the lush on-site gardens to begin each day, a short distance to just about anywhere – including a nearby beach…. These all made our stay that much more memorable. However, nothing compares to the kindness and the hospitality offered by our hostess, Judith and her husband Keith – as well as their cooking & gardening staff! They really take you in and treat you like family. We gained an experience, but we’ve also developed a friendship with Judith that I know will be lasting. We can’t thank her enough for everything. We are already looking forward to our next visit!!

Dr. Keith and Judith are both wonderful people. You couldn't ask for better hosts. I felt very spoiled by them. If you want a taste of the Caribbean, this is the place. They make you feel like their home is your home. The breakfasts were great. The views from their porch couldn't be beat. They were also very helpful in suggesting good places for dinner each night, for things to do and ways to get around the island. We would highly recommend their B&B.

We recently returned from our stay at Rock Haven, The owners, Judith and Keith, are extremely nice. Judith is like your favorite aunt. She made us a great breakfast each morning and answered every question we asked her about the islands and things to do.

The house sits on the top of a hill over looking both sides of the island. It facing directly towards the Atlantic Ocean so there was a great breeze everyday. There are several restaurant within walking distance, but we decided to rent a car. I would recommend renting a car, anyways, as it gives you much more flexibility. Its hard to get lost since there aren't that many roads. Rock Haven is a short drive from the Marriott, several beaches, downtown, and the airport. We were able to leave our car at the airport which made leaving very convenient.

Thank you Judith and Keith, we had a great experience at your B & B.
