Split stay in St. Kitts and Nevis

We are considering doing a split stay. I want to end the trip in St. Kitts as the flight leaves at 9:30am. I have chosen a home to rent in Nevis and would most likely stay at a resort in St. Kitts. Would 5 night Nevis 3 nights St. Kitts be a good choice or should I flip them? Looking for privacy and time for much needed R&R as. the primary goal but concerned that many restaurants may be closed in OCT in Nevis. Thanks for your input.

No right or wrong answer here, only different options. You don't say when in October you are going but that's the month everything starts to "gear up" for the season so you are going to find most restaurants on both islands will be open. the later in the month you go, the more places will be open. A few may still have limited hours/days of operation but that shouldn't hinder you in any meaningful way. There are some 35 to 40 places to eat on Nevis - most, if not all will be open in October. You won't go hungry.

Nevis is more laid back and quieter that St. Kitts but truth be told in October both islands will won't be very crowded.

If you just want privacy and R&R spend more time on Nevis. If you want activities like zip lining, dolphin swims, shopping, etc. then you might want to spend more time on St. Kitts.

Thanks. We are looking at Oct 4-13. Husband will just be finishing chemo so we are definitely not looking for any physical activity events so it seems we will be fine sticking to the longer time in Nevis.
