My husband and I chose Nevis to build our dream home after exploring the whole of the Caribbean. We love Nevis for the unspoiled charm of the land & people, the amazing vistas, fresh air and countryside. It is laid back & peaceful - once discovered you will want to return!
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Owner chose Pond Hill
Cool breezes, spectacular views, few if any bugs, tropical gardens and friendly hosts. Country walks & hiking directly from the cottage along a 200 year old stone path. One of the best locations in Nevis for exploring the historical plantation inns.
What makes this Cottage unique
We grow our own salad, herbs and vegetables which you are welcome to help yourself to. We have a friendly (unobtrusive) dog who lives in the garden.

Best guest house I’ve stayed at on Nevis! Charming, great location, wonderful hosts!
As a regular visitor to Nevis, I have stayed at numerous guest houses. This was by far my favorite! The owners were so friendly and accommodating and their dog Mango made our day every morning. The guest cottage is beautiful and well equipped and the bed was comfortable too. The view is simply incredible and the breeze makes hanging out enjoyable all day and night. You really can’t go wrong staying here :)
Perfect, cozy getaway
We visited Nevis for one week in February 2018 and this was the perfect place to stay. The cottage is very secluded and is surrounded by the most beautiful garden and views. Veronica and Brett coordinated our car rental and provided us with a list of things to do on the island, which was really helpful. We loved that it was a little removed from all of the hotels/resorts because it gave us a chance to get to know a different part of the island. Definitely recommend.
Best view on Nevis, centrally located, great hosts, quiet restful affordable
What a beautiful, floral, tropical setting! We had a little refrigerator, tea pot, coffee maker, and cooktop, so we had breakfasts on the deck gazing at hummingbirds among the flowers, and sunset snacks watching the glorious colors over the Caribbean Sea. Our hosts, Veronica and Brett, provided a very useful notebook of tour and dining tips, maps for driving or hiking, and even had some items in the fridge for our arrival and first breakfast. Windows stay open day and night, and a ceiling fan suffices on still nights. The Island is quiet except for natural sounds so alien to city ears - roosters, donkeys, chirping birds, crickets. We rested, ate amazing foods, toured historic ruins, walked on beautiful beaches, and met friendly people everywhere. We highly recommend Innisfree cottages and hope to return for another taste of this beautiful island and its delightfully hospitable people
A tiny piece of paradise
If you are looking for pampering, nightlife, and lap-of-luxury accommodations, this is not the place for you. If, however, you enjoy deserted beaches, amazingly friendly people, breathtakingly beautiful scenery, and lots of opportunities to explore, all based out of this perfect little cabin - you have found the right place! Veronica and Brett are friendly and helpful hosts. Veronica looked after booking our car rental with Strikers, and they gave us lots of tips on things to see and do on this gem of an island. The cabin is simple, with water from a cistern and the water pump and main lights powered via a solar panel on the roof. Kitchen is outfitted with a two burner hotplate, microwave, small fridge, coffee maker and toaster. Everything you need! We rarely travel more than once to a destination, but Nevis will see us again! Sea View cottage was the perfect base for a week of island living, and Brett and Veronica the perfect hosts. Book it - you won't be disappointed!
Quaint and Cozy
My husband and I decided to stay in this cottage for our honeymoon. First off, the property is beautiful. Veronica and Brett were extremely helpful and accommodating for our stay. They set up a rental car through Strikers who met us upon arrival on Nevis from the water taxi. Our ride to the cottage was incident free which added to their hospitality. Veronica showed us around the cottage which is self-sufficient; using a solar powered battery for electricity, which is in addition to govt power, and recycled filtered rain water for water. The view is amazing and the breeze is wonderful considering there is no a/c. AC is not needed the way the cottage is set up to harness the breeze and actually gets quite chilly at night with the ceiling fan. There is a nice porch to sit out on to eat breakfast in the morning and have coffee. Early in the morning, if you're lucky, you can catch the monkeys roaming the property. Both Veronica and Brett are helpful for pointing out scenic spots around the island, if needed (You must try Indian Summer).
Thank-you for your review, it was lovely to meet you both. We certainly do enjoy lovely cool breezes, pretty much year round! Hopefully see you again one day. Kind regards Veronica
Garden Cottage - 2 thumbs up
I enjoyed staying in the Garden Cottage very much. It was so nice, private, and serene to come back to after my day's wanderings. It was perfect for sleeping with its comfy bed; the kitchen and bathroom had everything I needed; and the deck was perfect for sitting, eating, and doing my own yoga rituals when I wasn't doing it with you, Veronica, on your deck, and, I loved you and Brett, Nelson, Florence, and Goldie. It was very helpful and personal care...and, I hope I will see you all again.
