About the Property
Delightful one-room cottage (bathroom with shower) has full cooking facilities
cottage conveniences: The cottage has a washer/dryer in a closet off the back patio. We have DSL Internet access for those who travel with a laptop. You can eat on the front porch (for morning shade), on the back patio (for mountain and garden views), or indoors by the glass doors to enjoy the view. Our comprehensive guest information binders give recommendations for our favorite restaurants and activities, with details about where to go and how to get there. You can see dozens of photos on Nevis and of Black Sand Cove if you go to our website and click on the Gallery. Black Sand Cove is on Facebook; become a Fan.
Enjoying Black Sand Cove: The beautiful and innovative-designed gardens at Black Sand Cove were designed and developed by Julie Toll. Julie has won many garden design awards in England, including 4 Gold and 2 Silver awards at the famous Chelsea Flower Show. Her special interest is maximizing the use of native species, and creating ecologically-sound landscaping. Secluded on our private acreage, you'll hear only the sounds of nature: the wind in the banana trees, the birds, the crickets and frogs, and the waves on the short of the virtually private beach. (While all beaches are public property on Nevis, the only way to get to this beach is by boat or down our stairway.) The 360-degree views provide fabulous sunrises and sunsets, and the passing spectacle of the changing clouds all day long. This is a great place to get away from it all, and relax, write, paint, play music, or just give your mind a rest. With temperatures in the 80's all year, you may have trouble leaving.

Nevis is a small island, quite undeveloped for the Caribbean, and off the beaten track. Nature, hiking, enjoying the rain forest and the fabulous views: these are popular activities along with swimming, snorkeling, scuba, strolling on beaches, and watching the sea and the clouds. There are lots of great restaurants, but for casinos, nightlife, and shopping, better choose a different island! For peaceful enjoyment of nature, we recommend Nevis as tops!
Other Activities: rain forest hikes, bird-watching
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: Tim and I bought this home to use for vacations, family gatherings, and eventually for retirement. People who have stayed at many rental homes in the Caribbean describe ours as one of the best equipped they've seen. That's because we spend quite a lot of time there ourselves. We designed the kitchen so that more than one person has convenient space to work together, because we like to cook in teams when a large family group gathers. Every room in the light, airy house has delightful views. We designed the swimming pool with broad, shallow steps to make it user-friendly for parents playing in the water with young children. With a separate cottage, close by but entirely separate and invisible from the house, a larger group of 8-12 can fit in, so it's a great place for an extended family get-together. With that many guests, some wouldn't have their own bathrooms or private bedrooms, since they'd be using sofa beds. The maid comes every 2-3 days.
Why the Owner Chose Fountain, Saint Kitts and Nevis:
Nevis is a small island, popular with those who seek a comparatively undeveloped tropical island to enjoy nature, hiking, the rainforest, and the wonderful views. Hiking in the rainforest is a popular activity. Guides are available to take adventurous hikers to the top of the volcano. Horseback riding and biking are available, and deep sea-fishing, sailing, scuba, windsurfing, and snorkeling are popular activities. And there are art galleries and 2 museums. Information about activities and restaurants is waiting for you in our guest information binder. Black Sand Cove is on Facebook; become a Fan.
