Private, perfect Perch

We enjoyed a wonderful week at the Perch. The accommodations were casual and very comfortable–just what we were looking for. The cottage is very private, with direct access to the stone beach at Kiddel Bay, which has great snorkeling. It is a few minutes drive to sandy beaches, hiking trails and wonderful restaurants. There is a beautiful view of Kiddel Bay and the Caribbean Sea from every room, a continuous gentle breeze, and brilliant stars at night. We loved the deck from breakfast in the early morning light to stargazing late at night. It exceeded our expectations and we can’t wait to return.

Outdoor Dining

Just what we needed

This was the perfect place to unplug and recharge. Very private and secluded, clean and affordable. We would definitely return.

I just got back from a fantastic stay at Kiddel Bay perch. It was very private and had all the amenities we needed during our stay. Fully equipped kitchen complete with gas grill and even a blender, which we enjoyed very much. The cottage is very basic, no frills. Ideal for the nature lover and to get away from it all. The ceiling fans kept it cool along with the ocean breeze through the screen windows. Can hear the ocean from the house. It has a fantastic view and a million stars come out at night If you are the type of person who likes resorts, this is not the place for you.

Great snorkeling (gear at the house) on the bay below and Salt Pond Bay just a short walk away along with the famous Ram’s Trail Head. Highly recommend getting a jeep during your stay. The house down a bumpy dirt pathway and its a bit of a drive to Cruz Bay and north shore. We loved the privacy of the perch. The property manager is very helpful and just a phone call away.

Beautiful Getaway

“Yes, it is off the beaten path and it is on the Southeast side of the island which is about a 40-minute drive from the Cruz Bay ferry port. The immediate road leading to Kiddel Perch is rocky, so make sure you rent a jeep, but it is absolutely beautiful and worth the drive.

The unit was clean, extremely spacious, the wrap around deck had amazing views, we saw shooting stars at night and clear waters in the day, and it is close to the best eats on the island (miss lucy’s for breakfast and johnny cakes, tourist trap for lobster roll, skinny legs for burgers), about 10 minute drive to Calabash Market for groceries, and about a 2 minute drive to the Saltpond Beach. If you are looking for hotel amenities, this is not the place. There is no A/C but we went in the dead of summer and there was always a nice breeze that kept the place cool along with the ceiling fans in every room. The heat was really not an issue.

Communicating with the property manager was extremely easy and hassle-free. They provided all the necessary contact information (which we never had to use during our stay as we had no issues) as well as clear driving directions to Kiddel Perch.

The drive into Cruz Bay and beaches along the north shore were an easy drive, but we always looked forward to coming back to Kiddel Perch for true island rest and relaxation. We would definitely stay at Kiddel Perch again.


We spent 9 relaxing days at Kiddel perch. The house was clean and we enjoyed a nice breeze all vacation long. Definitely rent a jeep to get out here but then again you would be best with a jeep for exploring the whole island anyway. It is a 10 or so minute drive to Calabash market and Coral Bay.

There is a nice spot for lunch and delicious drinks 5 minutes away. As for the snorkeling, we found Kiddel Bay to be one of the best spots on the island. We saw sea turtles, squid, colorful fish, and coral. Another 5 – 10 minutes down the road is beautiful Lameshur Bay and great hiking trails. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here.

The deck is perfect for evening relaxing (there is a grill) and morning coffee. Wifi worked well, there was a large clean shower, and a comfortable bed to look out at the Caribbean Sea. The skyscape at night is unbelievable.

Do not hesitate to stay here!! We will be back. Definitely a gem!!!!
