Nelson Beach Condos vs Hamilton Beach Condos - Renting

Hi,

I am considering renting a 3 bedroom unit from one of these properties. Has anyone on the board been to these properties? Which are the nicer units? Which is on a better beach? Which is closer to supermarkets/restaurants? We went to St Kitts two years ago and rented a time share at the Marriott Beach Resort, and loved St. Kitts. We took our rental car and spent the day at Nevis and also enjoyed our visit. We are considering coming to either resort sometime next year, most likely in April. We are a family of 4 with two boys who are currently 10 and 15 years of age.

Thanks!

Pete

Nelson Springs Condos and Hamilton Condos are about 1/4 mile from each other via the road and only a few hundred yards via the beach. They were both built by the same developer. (In fact, Hamilton was originally name "Nelson Spring Phase 2" but the name was changed to Hamilton shortly after the first units were sold).

Nelson Springs Condos were completed about 5 years ago. Hamilton are newer with most units about 2 years old and a few still under construction. They are all privately owned so interior decor, while upscale, will reflect the decorating tastes of the unit owners. One complex is not necessarily better than the other, they are just different complexes with different architectural designs. The grounds for both complex are well maintained.

As mentioned above they are on the same stretch of beach so no difference there.

Because they are so close to each other they are essentially the same distance from grocery stores and most restaurants around the island. The only exceptions are: 1) Yachtsman's Grill is inside the Hamilton condo complex and 2) Indian Summer and Coconut Grove restaurants are across the street and next door to Nelson Springs respectively.
