Our vacation home, called “Broad Reach”, is perched on a hillside on the Island of Nevis, overlooking the Caribbean Sea and neighboring St. Kitts. There are decks on three sides, and windows all around, so Broad Reach has breathtaking views in almost every direction. From the pool and patio, you can also see up the coast of Nevis to Oualie Beach. A fairly constant breeze blows through the house, and light streams in everywhere. On the decks you will find a dining table and chairs for meals outdoors while taking in the sunset, and a hammock for reading or a nap. On the patio by the pool, you will find a comfortable sofa and lounges under a shady pergola, our you can pull them out into the sun.
Broad Reach has an expansive feel because of the amazing views, and doors all around which we leave open all day, so we feel like we are always outdoors. The master bedroom has a king size bed, and the second bedroom has a queen and two singles, dormitory style. There is also a fold out sofa in the living room, for additional guests. The kitchen has all you need: refrigerator/freezer, range/oven, microwave, dishwasher, toaster oven, coffee maker, and of course the blender for smoothies and margaritas! There is internet access, a TV, DVD player with small DVD library, IPOD dock, barbecue, and laundry facilities.
Our Meet and Greet Service will arrange airport transportation, acquaint guests with the villa, and help arrange car rentals.

Most of the neighboring homes are vacation homes like ours and not always occupied. Nevis in general and our area in particular are extremely peaceful, and everything moves at a slow pace. It is a perfect place for relaxation. Our closest neighbor is a cruise ship captain; he and his wife are extremely friendly and helpful. Our maid, Hema, comes to clean once a week, and is also very helpful. The most comical neighbors we have are the monkeys, who sometimes run across the roof or patio, or frolic in the surrounding trees.
It's a 3 minute walk to a rocky beach with snorkeling, and a 5 minute walk to a sandy beach. All beaches on Nevis are public access. It's a 5 minute drive to charming Oualie Beach, with palm trees, hammocks, lounges, a beach bar and restaurant, and water sports. There are plenty of other good restaurants nearby as well. The island is small, but has a very interesting history, and lots of places to explore. There are many scenic ruins of sugar plantations and mills, and several that have been beautifully restored for use as restaurants and inns. Mt. Nevis is topped by a rainforest, with great hiking. There is a Four Seasons Resort on the island with all of its amenities.
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We are a couple in our 50's, with four children, all of us born and raised in Southern California. David is an inventor and machinist and Tamara (aside from raising 4 kids) makes pottery, plays the harp, and enjoys archery and backpacking.
Why the Owner Chose Cades Bay: We have always loved to visit the Caribbean as a family, and once we discovered the tranquility and natural beauty of Nevis, we wanted to be able to come back often. The views at Broad Reach, especially at sunset, were so impressive that we couldn't say no.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: The many doors and windows that open onto the wrap around decks, the infinity pool perched above the expansive ocean, the quaint wrought iron bench surrounded by tropical flowers, and the occasional monkey frolicking across the patio create our very own paradise.
