Property description

A departure from the usual villa rental holidays, Butler's is a private historic retreat with a Great House and Cottage on 6 acres of a former plantation situated atop the village which shares its name. Butler's House and Cottage comfortably accommodates up to 10 guests and is only rented to one party at a time so guests have exclusive use of the pool & gardens regardless of how many bedrooms are rented.

Nestled in the foothills of Butlers Mountain, the property commands sweeping sea views with an intoxicating landscape of colour and fragrance. Spend your days lounging by the 35 foot pool while gazing out to the sea or take a stroll through the ruins and extensive gardens. You may discover an artefact and even run into a family of green monkeys.

Butler’s House is and feels like a home and comfortably sleeps 4 adults and 2 children under 16. Tastefully decorated with an eclectic selection of antique and sympathetic modern furniture, you'll quickly ease into the comfortable surroundings of the House. Butler's House has two Queen-sized bedrooms with generous bathrooms. The third bedroom features a comfortable daybed with trundle and its own video viewing.

Butler's Cottage, a Nevisian-style home, bridges the gap between the 17th century property and modern day by reflecting the elegant simplicity and homeliness of the historic Butler's House. Sitting contendedly on the Upper Terrace, the Cottage is close enough to the House for ease, yet far enough away for privacy. It is rented out in conjunction with the House and accomodates
2 adults and 2 children under 16.

The Cottage, measuring 23 ft x 23 ft with an 8 ft verandah, is open plan with a simple kitchen, a bathroom, bedroom and living area. There is a Queen-sized bed (in the bedroom) and a daybed with trundle in the living area.

Housekeeping, pool cleaning and a gardener are included. A cook can be arranged with advance notice. Wireless, cable TV installed.

Guests have exclusive use of the house, pool & gardens regardless of how many bedrooms are rented.


Upon arrival to Nevis, a taxi will bring you to Butler’s House where our local agent will greet you and answer any questions. Our agent will book the taxi and can also arrange your rental car. Your first dinner can be arranged and food supplies provided.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: In 2005, we bought, restored and rennovated an old plantation home (circa 1700's) on the charming island of Nevis. We never really knew what we had until the restoration process began. During that time, my late wife Diane and I realised that--like owners before us-- we are caretakers, ensuring Butler's will be around for many generations to come.

Why the Owner Chose Whitehall, Saint Kitts and Nevis:
We fell in love with Butlers House immediately we came across it. The privacy, seclusion was wonderful and the challenge to renovate a historical property was too strong to not take the challenge.
