Knippenga Estate

Nestled in the wild tropical habitat that covers the higher slopes of Statia's famous, long-dormant Quill volcano, Knippenga Estate provides the ultimate Caribbean getaway. With its stunning ocean views, views on St.Barths and St.Kitts, unspoilt surroundings and ingenious architecture, a stay at Knippenga estate will bring you naturally in tune with the rising and setting of the sun. Each of Knippenga's five uniquely designed, luxurious Caribbean villas offers true comfort and complete privacy in a stunning setting where the pace of daily life is set by nature.

15 minutes from Roosevelt airport and historical Oranjestad, down a couple of miles of steep track lined with black volcano stone and lush vegetation, Knippenga Estate will offer any guest a rewarding escape from the crowded tourist haunts.
