Developer Scott Jaynes feels this is great news for Sundance Ridge…


1 Sundance Ridge remains one of the most beautiful settings in the Caribbean. What’s been happening on it and around it in the past 12 months? 

We have enjoyed working with our latest buyers to design their 10,000 sq. ft. villa.  Ground was broken in late 2014 with completion slated for August 2016.  Several other prospective buyers have enjoyed tours of the property and are considering purchase. We only have seven building sites left out of a total of 15. When a prospect tours Sundance Ridge the most common word used over and over and over again is “WOW”! 

2 What are you offering the potential buyer at this magnificent location? 

We offer our buyers a private high-end gated community.  We specialize in a complete turnkey experience from villa design, premium quality construction, professional interior design services, and furniture acquisition and placement.  It’s authentic one-stop shopping for all our buyers.

3 Does the development qualify under the Citizenship by Investment program?

Yes. A Buyer has the option of applying for St. Kitts Economic Citizenship with a real estate purchase in The Estates on Sundance Ridge.  If the buyer is not interested in the citizenship option then when he sells his buyer would still have the citizenship option.

4 Would you agree the international spotlight has returned to St. Kitts with its increased profile from staging top cricket matches, the Citizenship by Investment Program, and the big developments like Christophe Harbour, Park Hyatt Hotel, and Kittitian Hill Resort? 

Absolutely!  Airlift schedules have also increased via American Airlines, US Airways, Delta, and British Airways and this allows more people to come and experience the charm of St. Kitts.  With a population of only 35,000 residents there is a genuine friendliness on St. Kitts that is hard to find elsewhere.  A lifestyle real estate investment here should afford buyers significant appreciation over the next decade.

5 How will the international spotlight benefit you at Sundance Ridge? 

The increased exposure should entice more adventurous people to the island to explore and encounter an island unspoiled by a large population.  St. Kitts is “laidback Caribbean” and at Sundance Ridge we certainly agree with that attitude. 

6 The development of the Southeast Peninsula and improvements to the infrastructure must be major assets to Sundance Ridge. How much benefit does you feel it all brings? 

The Southeast Peninsula, where Sundance Ridge is located, is a natural growth area for the island.  The new Super Yacht Marina, Park Hyatt Hotel, and Christophe Harbour Golf Course should excite more and more high-end buyers to get serious about investment.  Announcement of the rehabilitation of the Southeast Peninsula road is a breath of fresh air to the developers and current residents of the area.

7 Readers may not appreciate the unique ambience of the view from Sundance Ridge in print, but when you sit on your verandah and look across to lovely Nevis can you visualize what is was like several hundred years ago when Admiral Nelson’s fleet frequently patrolled the waters between the islands?

I frequently think about those amazing battles.  I’m told there are more than 100 sunken vessels (many of them British and French warships) lying on the sea bottom just below Sundance Ridge.  I can almost hear canons in the distance as those sailors from another age battle for the island of St. Kitts (and St. Kitts is still considered the “gem of the Caribbean”).



Scott and Connie Jaynes moved to St. Kitts from Oklahoma after falling in love with the island. Their love has not diminished over the last decade and they remain two of the island’s greatest ambassadors. Warm, friendly and enthusiastic they are the “First Citizens” of Sundance Ridge and discerning developers who want to go that extra mile to please. The impressive Sundance Ridge epitomizes their vision and development philosophy. Scott can be contacted by telephone at 869 762 5978 or by email at
