Oualie Bay cottage description

Yellow Bird is a lovely, spacious one bedroom house, overlooking the Caribbean Sea at Oualie Bay, Nevis. The house is slightly elevated, being built into the steep lower slopes of Round Hill. Nestled into a half acre private, mature garden with a private pool, sundecks and balcony, there are magnificent views across the 'Narrows' towards the south east peninsular of St Kitts. Oualie Bay Beach is directly opposite Yellow Bird and access is a mere 4 minute stroll from the garden gate. Oualie Beach is quiet and sheltered with superb swimming. Many of the island's beach activities are located at Oualie including PADI diving, snorkelling, windsurfing and sunfish sailing. The Oualie Bay Beach Hotel has a very good restaurant and small bar, popular on Saturday evenings when it hosts to a traditional Nevisian String Band. Yellow Bird is fun and cosy, very spacious, light and bright. Perfect for couples and honeymooners, with plenty of privacy and seclusion without being too isolated.

                          Oualie Bay is located on the north eastern coast of Nevis. It has a very sheltered crescent shaped beach, tucked between Hurricane Hill to the east and Tamarind Point to the west. It is a pretty, scenic, hilly area with just one small beach hotel, bar and restaurant. The other properties are private villas, hugging the coast and built into the lush hillside. Oualie Beach, Nevis is directly opposite Turtle Beach, St Kitts and a small jetty at Oualie is anchor to the small charter boats and water taxis that make the crossing between the two islands.

                          There are lots of activities to seek out near the beach but it remains a quiet, unspoilt sunspot.

                          To the east of Oualie Bay is Lovers Beach, which at about a half an hours walk away is an almost deserted, undeveloped stretch of much wilder, Atlantic shoreline. Cades Bay and Pinneys to the south are also beautiful Caribbean side beaches, with a few bars and the largest hotel on the island, The Four Seasons.

                          Other Activities: hiking, historical buildings, local museums.
