About the Property
Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
The first level of the mill includes two large bedrooms, one with a queen-size bed and one with twin beds. Each has French doors opening to the lawn and pool, and each has a private bath. The stone-walled main floor of the tower, which includes the kitchen and indoor living/dining room, opens onto a dramatic wraparound terrace with sweeping views of the Atlantic and of Mt. Nevis. The large terrace includes sitting and dining areas covered by a series of flying canopies that provide shade with minimal interruption of the view.
The third level is an airy bedroom with a queen-size bed, private bath, and two beautiful arched windows. The top floor is a sitting room with two daybeds, writing desk, and walkout terrace overlooking fields and ocean.
Windows and doors are screened. The house is naturally cooled by its thick stone walls and a lovely breeze. There is rarely an uncomfortable night.
The Mill's 1.75-acre grounds are landscaped with an assortment of palm trees and flowering shrubs. Families of monkeys are frequently seen in the lower yard in the morning or afternoon as they frolic their way up or down the hill. Next to the mill stands the ruin of the original boiling house. The swimming pool has incredible views over pasturelands, up the mountain, and out to sea. Next to the pool is a gazebo, the perfect place to read anytime of day or watch sunsets. The gazebo is also a very atmospheric place for a private wedding.
Amenities include private swimming pool, maid service, washer and dryer, internet connection, VCR and DVD, stereo with CD/tape player, and a well-equipped kitchen. Electricity is 110v. With prior notice, guests can arrange for catered dinners.

Explore beautiful old ruins of sugar plantations. Hike the nearby nature trail and, for the more adventurous hiker, climb to the peak of Mt. Nevis (guide advised). Beautiful beaches to explore, and all beaches on the island are public.
Year Purchased: 1995
About the owner: My husband, Michael, is a retired dermatologist and he and I currently have a small skin care product company called Ocean Elements. Our first product is a wonderful moisturizing SPF 30 sunscreen. We fell in love with Nevis and Vervain during our first visit to the island in January 1995. From the morning coffee on the terrace to the last chirping tree frog at night, there is a certain magic about the place, and we hope you feel the same.
