Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

PLEASE NOTE: The island of Nevis sustained no damage from the passage of Hurricanes Irma and Maria (September 2017) and our villa was not impacted in any way. We would be thrilled to welcome you to our villa and the island of Nevis.

****************************************************************************

This custom-built home is set on over an acre of land and boasts a replica Nevisian sugarmill as the entrance foyer. The home has a wonderful ambiance - balancing modern furnishings with wonderful antiques.

The garden offers a huge array of tropical fruit trees including 2 different types of mango trees, limes, avocado, soursop (also known as graviola) and sugar apple.

The master bedroom is very large, has air conditioning and opens onto the verandah and pool deck. A 37" tv with Roku is located in the bedroom with a Roku box - offering a huge array of programs on Netflix and Amazon Prime. The en-suite bathroom features an open shower, twin sinks and a large (2 person) jacuzzi.

The second bedroom is spacious, with air conditioning and a private balcony with ocean views. The en-suite bathroom offers a very large shower.

The kitchen is well-equipped with all amenities and appliances (including coffee maker, food processor, liquidizer, slow cooker, Kitchen Aid mixer) - but you may have more fun dining out rather than cooking on vacation! The breakfast bar has plenty of room so the chef / bartender is not alone when prepping in the kitchen .

The sitting room is a great place to hang out by day or night and the TV is an impressive 55" LED/LCD with cable and Apple TV.

Outside areas of the property include the dining table on the pool deck, the deck area with sunloungers, and the upstairs cocktail terrace for sunset drinks and breathtaking views.

The home is located in a prestigious estate and is conveniently located to the best beaches on the island and numerous bars and restaurants. The world-renowned Four Seasons Resort is just up the road and offers a very beautiful and challenging golf course, numerous tennis courts and a fabulous spa.

About Gigi Duncan

We are a married couple, Gigi and Charlie, that are lucky enough to call Nevis home year-round with several businesses to keep us busy.

Charlie was born in St Kitts (the neighbouring island) when his father was the engineer at the Sugar Factory... some moons ago! Gigi has been resident in St Kitts & Nevis for some 30+ years.

We love this island and all that it offers, and look forward to welcoming you to this very special place.

Gigi Duncan purchased this villa in 2002

Why Gigi Duncan chose Cotton Ground

'Moonbeam' is a wonderful home and a superlative vacation rental due to it's location, design, amenities, style and comfort. Oh, and the personalized service you get when you're a guest in our villa!

You won't be disappointed!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Apologies for the delayed review. We spent 7 nights at Villa Moonbeam in January 2016. The place has everything you need for a peaceful vacation. Gigi the owner was on hand for anything and everything - nothing too much trouble. The house is well equipped and well situated for all amenities. I'm one of the rare humans that doesn't drive and nothing was a hassle.



Nevis Island is indeed paradise... and I shall return again one day.

The best villa (really lovely) and a fabulous island. Winning combination!!

  • 5 of 5

We feel like we struck the vacation home lottery with this home. It was absolutely perfect in every way and we knew we'd made the right choice before we'd even set off with the level of service we received from Gigi, the villa owner. She sorted out our car rental, arranged our transfers and gave us all the details we needed for traveling there. She stocked up the pantry and fridge with complimentary supplies (very generous!)and met us on our arrival. The villa is fabulous and without a doubt the loveliest rental home we have ever stayed at. And we have stayed in many! The island of Nevis is unique as well - really unspoilt and we feel lucky to have found this little gem where we could relax completely. Getting around is easy but you have to have your wits about you for the rather erratic drivers! We put it down to part of the adventure! We are planning to come back next year - for sure!!

We loved EVERYTHING about this place. We will be back - for sure!!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a break to 'get away from it all' and that was exactly what we got. We had concierge level assistance from Gigi once we had made the reservation. She made our car reservation for us and arranged our transfers and answered all our questions. All we had to do was follow her emailed instructions once we arrived and in the blink of an eye we were in Nevis, meeting Gigi as we stepped off the boat. She picked us up and took us to the villa - all part of her great service. And WOW!! The villa is beautiful. The photos of this property are good but not good enough to do justice to the actual property in the flesh. We had an amazing time. Loved the location which we found ideal for beaches, restaurants, sunsets (the upstairs viewing terrace is SO much better than Banana's sunset deck!) Charlestown and Four Seasons. Everything is nearby and yet you feel like you are a million miles away because the villa is so private and you have nobody to disturb you. We spent many a happy afternoon alternating between dipping in the pool and sleeping in the most comfortable chaises longues ever. They are so comfy you can't stay awake... impossible! Have to mention the outdoor shower as well - unbelievably amazing. We had such a great time that we are beginning to plan our return trip to Nevis - and we are definitely going to be staying at Villa Moonbeam again. See you soon Gigi!

Fantastic villa with a pool in a perfect location with wonderful owners.

  • 5 of 5

We own a vrbo and have stayed in many rentals around the globe. This one is top notch. Gigi planned our taxi and water taxi. Had the fridge stocked with beer, eggs, various other sundries. She was a wealth of knowledge and fun to chat with. We had one tiny issue with water(island issue not the villas) abd gigi and charlie were over in a flash to cheerily take care of it. The villa is in a perfect location for driving to town or to chrishi beach, nisbett or any other restaurants, plantations or beaches. We loved our stay and will stay again. Wonderful value great experience!

Bliss at Moonbeam Villa

  • 5 of 5

I can't speak highly enough of Moonbeam Villa & owners Gigi & Charlie. The villa's location, cleanliness, amenities, are simple wonderful. We are repeat customers & will not stay anywhere else while on Nevis.

A most beautiful way to escape the northern winter

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for10 days in Feb. 2017. There's not much to say that hasn't been said in other reviews. Villa Moonbeam is a well-appointed, clean and comfortable home, well located for local restaurants and beaches, quiet and relaxing. The only visitors were the occasional wary monkeys in the back yard. Gigi is an excellent hostess - always available and helpful, but not intrusive. The nicely stocked refrigerator upon arrival, the outdoor shower, dipping pool and jacuzzi were all much appreciated. And Nevis is our favorite Caribbean island - friendly and not at all touristy but with excellent facilities and a fascinating history. I can only think of one aspect to criticize about the house - the beautiful views of St. Kitts to the northwest can no longer be seen from the deck because of vegetation growth. but a quick climb to the upper deck for a sundowner each evening gave the sunset views we needed.

A wonderful honeymoon getaway.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I finally decided to take our honeymoon. We are 41 & 52 and not into parties, resorts and a lot of activities. Nevis was the perfect spot. Enough to see and do to not get bored, good restaurants. We went deep sea fishing, which was great, we went on a snorkel trip, which was also terrific. The highlight was a horseback trail ride part of the way up the mountain. Villa Moonbeam was absolutely wonderful. Quiet, relaxing and best of all we spent a lot of quiet time together. We both work quite hard and the break was wonderful. Most remarkable was the friendliness of the Nevisians. They are a laid back, friendly and very welcoming bunch. Gigi, the owner, arranged our arrival and departure from St. Kitts. All we had to do was book a flight to St. Kitts and she arranged the rest. So helpful and very reassuring to have this level of hospitality.
