Overview

About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Me Hideaway is one of the highest houses on the island with a commanding view of Redonda, Montserrat and Antigua. Bathed in the trade winds, it is refreshingly cool in the evening. On the drive up from Golden Rock you may see monkeys on the road, they're probably stealing the bananas in our side yard as you read this! The Nature Trail from Golden Rock through the forest to the water source is a five minute walk up behind the house. Me Hideaway is totally private but not isolated.

Having undergone a major transformation, the home now boasts one queen and two king-size four poster beds, all handcrafted on Nevis. New furnishings and appliances throughout accommodate a new level of comfort. The addition of a large pool deck with new furniture and cushions surrounded by a traditional 'monkey puzzle' railing adds a new dimension of outdoor living to the house.

Should you choose to stay here you'll be sitting on top of the world - you can see Windward Beach from the upper deck, if it looks too rough or windy just 'lime' by your own pool. The island's best grocery store is seven minutes away, Golden Rock serves breakfast, lunch and dinner all week (plus the best rum punch on the island). Upon arrival on Nevis our friend Stedroy Dore ('Smile On Me Taxi') will meet you and take you to the house. Jennifer, our house manager, will welcome you and show you around. Breakfast items and beer/wine for that first evening on the verandah will be stocked in the fridge. All this adds up to a very relaxing time on Nevis.

About The Owner

We live on Nantucket with our 14 year old son, Finn and our Portuguese Water Dog, Garbo. Ella is a Nurse and Bob is a contractor.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2005

Why The Owner chose Rices

We visited Nevis and immediately fell in love with the island. We were fortunate enough to buy Me Hideaway after staying there once. The house, view and location are irresistible!

Nevis truly is the way the Caribbean used to be, unhurried with very friendly people.

What makes this villa unique

If there's a better way on earth to start the morning - a cup of coffee in your hand, sitting on the verandah with the sun warming you up, we don't want to know about it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We sadly leave Me Hideaway after twelve days of Nevisian joy! We love this island (first visit) and its people. Your sweet home on top of this hill made our Nevis visit even sweeter! The seclusion is perfect - just far enough away from what little hustle and bustle there is. We're coming back - XO. p.s. enjoy the $50 cooler from Best Buy, Bob!

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful week at this beautiful home. The views are stunning and the landscaping is gorgeous. The home is very well-maintained and has every amenity you could need. We enjoyed the location being very close to one of our favorite Inns, Golden Rock where we enjoyed both a lunch and a dinner. There were plenty of monkeys to spot through the lush vegetation. The home owner Ella is a peach and assisted us with transportation arrangements and gave many helpful tips that enhanced our stay. The drive up to the house is an adventure, but we got the hang of it quickly and had no problems getting to and fro. I highly recommend this property. It is truly lovely.

Me Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was delightful! Each morning we awoke to a sunrise that was spectacular! Watching the haze rise up from the horizon and suddenly we would see Monserrat.

Lots to see and do. The monkeys by the pool, the donkeys on the road up the mountain

and the goats, sheep and chickens in town were a joy so unexpected. A true nugget in

the Carribbean. So worth visiting. Food excellent. House lovely and comfy. Needed more time on the island.

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Me Hideaway is a very special paradise. Conveniently located yet secluded with a spectacular view. Incredibly well appointed home with a gorgeously landscaped yard and lovely pool: dreamily comfortable and the perfect place to relax. We did get out and see the island, but could have been happy to just hang out at Me Hideaway for the entire vacation! Thank you, Ella and Bob for sharing your delightful place with us lucky, enchanted vacationers!
