Our comfortable villa is ideal for a family with children, two couples, or a group of friends who could share together. If you do not need all of the bedrooms, or are 'just two' who want to use the house on your own, ( the upper floor is perfect for a couple ), we will offer a discount. The villa is peaceful, quiet, private, and not overlooked. It is not on a 'complex' of other villas where the next house may be only 30ft away. Verandah stands on it own large plot of land on a small rise 3 minutes from the beach on the calm Caribbean Ocean side of Nevis. We have Padi Dive Scuba boat trips at Oualie Beach, and Golf is available at the 4 Seasons Hotel 18 hole Robert Trent designed golf course.

If you fly in to St Kitts International airport (5 miles away) you can cross to Nevis on the ferry (30mins), or we can arrange a private water taxi transfer for you. You will need a car or Jeep to get around the island and we can help reserve this for the duration of your stay.
Nevis, one of the most original islands of the Caribbean, is next to the island of St.Kitts. Our small and tranquil island with its beautiful beaches and tropical forest rising up to the Nevis mountain peak, offers you a stress free vacation, with sunshine and cool breezes all year round.

About Peter & Nikki
Peter who is a professional travel photographer and Nicola who teaches art and ceramics and their daughter Dominique love spending time in the warmth of the Caribbean. They travel extensively but always enjoy returning to Nevis for it's beauty, tranquility and friendly people. We first visited to Nevis in 1998 whilst on a photographic shoot, and fell in love with island. Last summer Nicola created some colorful Caribbean cards which are on sale here at the art galleries and hotels. It is always a joy to spend time relaxing on this lovely island.
Peter & Nikki purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Peter & Nikki chose Cliftons
We first visited Nevis when Peter was on a photographic shoot in the Caribbean, and we loved the island so much that after several vacations here we bought our villa in 2004. The Villa had been designed and built by the owner of the Botanical Gardens in Nevis, and the garden and pool was laid out with palm trees and tropical flowers. Jones Estate where we are located is on the Caribbean ocean side of the island and has beautiful beaches with calm seas and safe swimming for children. It is our 'home from home', and we are delighted to share it's ambience with others when we are off-island.
What makes this Villa unique
It is great to visit all the beaches and restaurants that Nevis has to offer , but some days it is wonderful to just lay in the garden sunbathing , sipping a cool drink, swimming in the pool, and then after lunch of freshly grilled fish and salad , to just lay in the hammock or sit on the veranda and relax with a good book!

perferfectly located and confortable
very nice holidays in Verandah house ! we have very much apreciated the transfer from StKitts organized by Peter & Nikki . The house is verry confortable and well located .
Peaceful and Relaxed Stay
We had a group of 5 who stayed at Peter's. When we arrived we met his agent Livi who was flexible and very organized. He remained helpful throughout the trip by assisting with rental vehicles and recommendations.
The home itself was the perfect size for us and could have fit a bigger group. Everything in the home was clean when we arrived. It's a perfect spot for a family vacation and the pool is a great touch. Plan to rent a car because it is a short drive to everywhere on the island.
I would stay at this place again and would recommend highly recommend it!
Tom ,thank you for your kind review and I am glad that you had a great time. We look forward to you staying again some day best wishes Peter
Wonderful family home with an amazing, private pool
We spent twelve nights at Villa Verandah in August with our four children, ages 15 down to 4. The house was spacious with all the comforts of home. It is an older home (which we prefer as we have too many kids to worry about brand new places with expensive artwork!) and you feel that you can relax there instead of worrying all the time about somebody's white designer sofa. We particularly enjoyed the screened in deck which meant that we could sit outside and read, as well as eating all our meals outside without being bothered by bugs. The high point of the house is the private pool with its waterfall, where we spent a great part of every day. It is entirely private and the kids can make some noise without you having to worry about disturbing other people - although they may disturb the monkeys which visited every day to drink from the waterfall. You will be well looked after by the staff who come in to look after the pool and the house and Livi from the management company will take care of transport and can provide recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing.
The home is high up on a hill overlooking the sea and is a five minute drive from the nearest beach - Oualie - which offers safe, shallow waters for the kids, as well as the benefits of a bar and restaurant when the kids really can't live another minute without a Ting. It is about a 10 minute drive to the longer Pinneys Beach where most of the beach bars e.g. Sunshine, are situated and 10 minutes in the other direction to Lovers Beach which has deeper water and waves and which you will usually have to yourselves, apart from the turtles and the birds. 15 minutes will get you to the supermarkets and shops in Charlestown.
Nevis is a beautiful island and is small and easy to get around with a hire car. It is well worth exploring as there are beautiful beaches everywhere and old plantations, many of which are now converted to hotels with great restaurants. Some are closed during the summer though so pick your time carefully should there be somewhere you particularly want to visit. We recommend breakfast at the Nisbet Plantation - the food was wonderful, the setting beautiful and you even get reduced prices for the kids.
Nevis is a wonderful destination if, like us, you want home comforts with the benefits of sunshine, a pool, quiet, safe beaches, decent restaurants, some music and some history. It is a place to chill - take a good book and a relaxed attitude and enjoy some island time.
Thank you for your kind review. It is so good to have guests staying who get out and about and enjoy our beautiful island. So many people just book a hotel room and never leave the property, a Villa gives you lots of freedom. Best wishes Peter (owner)
Great location, beautiful pool and screened in porch.
Villa Verandahs is a lovely place set in the hills with a nice view over the sea. Beautiful pool with a waterfall and complete privacy. The villa is tasteful and would work for a couple (us) or a family. The owner was extremely helpful in making logistics work and Livi the on island manager was great. The location provides easy access to most of the islands best restaurants.
Great pleasure having you both to stay. So glad that you had a great vacation. Peter
Wonderful vacation off the beaten path
We spent 2 weeks at Villa Verandah on Nevis and it was a wonderful time. The island is quiet and safe, very few tourists. We went mostly to Paradise Beach and, on a stretch of beach of almost a mile, there were never more than 10 people.
The villa is really nice, with a marvelous screened terrace. It truly deserves its name as the verandah goes all the way around on both levels. We had one child that spent some time watching TV but all the adults were outside all the time. The pool is very nice and large enough to swim.
Several people showed up at various times and took care of the yard, pool and house. Very clean and well maintained overall.
Transportation was also well coordinated - we were picked up at the airport by a taxi driver (plenty of taxis at the airport on St Kitts) and then, to the envy of several people waiting at the docks, were handed over to the water taxi that took us immediately to Oualie beach where our rental car was waiting.
Overall a very pleasant experience.
Thank you so much for your kind review and I am so glad everybody had a great time. Maybe see you again someday ! Best wishes Peter (Owner)
Perfect for really unwinding
The local representative John met us off the boat late on Saturday afternoon and took the time to show us around the villa, which was immaculately clean and well kept. It is very spacious, and designed and specified to a very high standard. The main verandah is completely mosquito proofed and meant that we could spend every evening outside in complete relaxation. We also spent many happy hours in the pool and on the sun-loungers. The location is very peaceful and private whilst being only a couple of minutes drive from the beach. You can happily spend all day without venturing out if you want, as the villa has everything you need.
John was very accommodating and quick to help us with a couple of things we needed, such as a plug adaptor that we had neglected to bring with us. When the mains water in that part of the island went down, John arranged for the plumber to come round and connect a stand-by supply the same evening. John and Peter and Nikki were very helpful when we had something of a medical emergency late in the second week (which was entirely unrelated to our stay). We very much hope to return.
The Villa is on Jones Estate at Tamarind Bay , the best location in Nevis just a few minutes from Oualie and Chrishi beaches and only about 50ft above sea level, so no long drives up steep hills to get anywhere . On a private dead end road so no traffic noise at all, you can walk to the nearest restaurant. Scuba Safaris, located at the Oualie Beach, is a full-service dive operation - a five-star NAUI and PADI operation - that is safe, offering professional teaching. It is only 3 minutes away. You can also rent windsurfers here .....or just lay on the beach. 'Miss Junes' the famous restaurant, which you might like to visit, is also just down our lane.
