About the property

Villa, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

If you are looking for a relaxing vacation in peaceful surroundings then this is the rental for you.

Watch the sun-set from your private terrace in over an acre of tropical gardens, the cottages are surrounded by flowers and plants which attract hummingbirds, and you may also see monkeys hiding amongst the palm trees. Unpolluted night skies mean wonderful star gazing.

Your hosts, Brett and Veronica, are friendly and helpful taking care of car rental, airport transfers and ensuring that your arrival to Nevis will be smooth and stress free.

With advice and tips on things to do and where to go or assistance with making restaurant reservations, Veronica is always on hand to offer advice with a friendly smile.

To truly unwind enjoy the twice weekly yoga classes, watch the sun set from the terrace as you stretch and relax.

The cottages have been built to take advantage of the natural trade breezes with plenty of easy to open windows and shutters. If there is no breeze an overhead fan will keep you cool at night, however at 850ft above sea level, even in the middle of summer the temperature is comfortable.

The two cottages have a private terrace with outdoor chairs & table as well as the surrounding garden which is yours to relax and enjoy. The cottages were built to be environmentally friendly and self sustaining with solar powered water heaters, 12v lighting, and rain water collection.

The cottage is a great base for exploring Nevis.

About The Owner

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!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2010

Why The 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a lovely stay, thank-you! The cottage is so cute, simple but really what else do you ned when you have caribbean sunshine, beautiful beaches and friendly people! The cottage was spotlessly clean, bed comfy, temperature perfect and we loved the little kitchen. It was nice to have a good sized fridge/freezer. Great location too we enjoyed the walk to the Hermitage Plantation, and had an amazing meal at Montpelier which is just down the road. Thanks again we will be back!!

Best view on Nevis, centrally located, great hosts, quiet restful affordable

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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).

Owner's Response: 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

The most relaxing happy cottage in idyllic surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for two weeks over the New Year period and had the best time of our lives. The cottage itself is fantastically set with stunning views of the surrounding sea and the hosts were so friendly and welcoming we couldn't recommend this place enough! In the cottage you'll find everything you need for a great stay and in such a great area of the island you'll be spoilt for choice for things to do and see. We are both hoping one day to return again!

Garden Cottage - 2 thumbs up

  • 5 of 5

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.

Spectacular Nevis Cottage

  • 5 of 5

8 wonderful days at this beautiful location. Veronica and Brett are great hosts and the propoerty is spectacular. When you wake in the morning to hummingbirds and monkeys outside your window, what's there to complain about. Great views of the Carribbean, gentle breezes at night and sunsets that seem to be photo shopped. We will certainly return.
