A vibrant new Caribbean port of call is emerging on St. Kitts. By yacht, by jet...those who can will be here. Christophe Harbour features dramatic peaks rising above turquoise seas and quiet beaches — a serene contrast to the lively energy of the planned mega-yacht harbour and marina village.
Set on 2,500 acres of natural bays, bluffs, and beaches on the quiet island of St. Kitts, West Indies, Christophe Harbour will offer a dynamic community, elegant residences, and exceptional amenities. Surrounding the mega-yacht harbour will be chic restaurants, boutiques, and nightspots. Guests and residents will enjoy five-star hotels, a hillside Tom Fazio golf course, and a private club.
Led by Kiawah Development Partners, this idyllic Caribbean community is taking shape in its alluring setting. Christophe Harbour Real Estate has recently announced its latest property release — The Bungalows at Sandy Bank Bay, the first built-for-sale product at Christophe Harbour. In this limited offering, only 14 elegant hideaways, set upon the hillside and along the beach at Sandy Bank Bay, are available for purchase. The Bungalows at Sandy Bank Bay will feature distinctive architecture and creature comforts including a private plunge pool, exquisite furnishings, and brilliant views. Just a few steps away, owners and guests will revel in the dining, pools, activities, and incomparable services of the exclusive Beach Club, which will soon be under construction.
Kiawah Development Partners, Fazio Golf Course Designers, and a team of leading architectural, environmental, and engineering companies are bringing their formidable experience to bear at Christophe Harbour. Kiawah Development Partners is well known for its award-winning communities – Kiawah Island, South Carolina, and Doonbeg Golf Club in Ireland.
Appealing Natural Attributes
As development has sprouted on other islands, St. Kitts remains rare and unspoiled. The striking, mountainous terrain, often compared to that of the South Pacific, tumbles down wooded hillsides to shoreline on the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean.
A former British colony, the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis enjoys a strong economy, progressive government, and rich culture. Natural treasures include warm and inviting English-speaking citizens, lively musical and culinary traditions, ancient petroglyphs, restored colonial fortresses, and historic plantations.
Unsurpassed Island Amenities
Christophe Harbour’s master plan retains the island’s natural beauty while creating a lifestyle of adventure and relaxation:
A World-Class Harbour
At the heart of this new destination is a stunning harbour – arguably the most ideal natural harbour in the Western hemisphere. Formed from an ancient caldera centuries ago, it offers gentle prevailing winds, a safe inner harbour, and access to both the Atlantic and Caribbean.
Exceptional services and this enviable setting will assure the harbour’s position as a top yachting destination when it opens in 2012. The 300 slips will include several that accommodate yachts greater than 100 feet.
Services designed for the convenience of owners and the care and security of their vessels will encompass concierge services, security, yacht repair, cleaning, and maintenance. Christophe Harbour’s marina and village are being designed by several prominent engineering and design firms to have minimal impact on the island’s environment.
An Activity-Centered Marina Village
The marina village will be a lively gathering place with lines of mega-yachts, chic waterside cafes, and stylish visitors strolling the promenade, taking in the sights and sounds. A world of dining choices and shopping boutiques will fringe the harbour’s edge. Caribbean rhythms will pulse from exotic nightspots, and luxurious hotels will cater to a sophisticated clientele.
Must-Play Fazio Golf
In a stunning hillside location, a new golf course is nearing completion. Tom Fazio describes his Christophe Harbour design eloquently: “The natural beauty and topography of St. Kitts will make this course one of the best,” he says. “We will shape each hole to reflect the natural setting, and practically every hole will have water views. The course will be so unique that people will want to extend their vacations to play.”
Fazio’s must-play design achieves harmonious transitions and elevation changes between holes to add intrigue to each round. As course construction proceeds, Fazio’s team is taking great care to curb erosion and protect the setting, ensuring an attractive, sustainable course.
A Design for Island Living
Christophe Harbour residents will enjoy island living and dramatic natural beauty for generations to come. Distinctive architecture is designed to enhance the natural setting and complement the existing landscape. A harmonious balance of personal style, an unparelled collection of amenities, community aesthetic, and natural preservation creates a singular experience for those who will call Christophe Harbour home.
In addition to The Bungalows at Sandy Bank Bay, a limited number of homesites and marina slips are available. To learn more or arrange a personal tour, please call 866-792-4962 or visit www.christopheharbour.com
