Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 master Bedrooms + bunkroom, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This nature lover’s villa is situated on the best site of this 5-acre estate on the edge of the ghaut. It is located about 700 ft. up the 3200 ft. mountain, providing ideal temperature year round and is a minute drive above the Four Seasons golf course. The views all around it are spectacular especially of the ocean and St.Kitts. As a result the villa has open-air architecture letting you take it all in from the villa.

Nearby activities include: golf and tennis at Four Seasons. There is also field of dreams golf course located about 4 miles away ( a deceased expat built on his land) with 9 holes, just a fun little course .You can sail on a large catamaran which takes about 30 people, or smaller private yachts that take 6-8 people. Horseback riding, watersports and cycling are also available. There are many historical sites to visit and great hikes with guides available. We can also direct you to some deserted beaches and great inland sites where you can take a picnic. We know all the people who run the activities so we can help you with this. Four Seasons Resort and Pinneys beach are just a 5 minute drive away.

This is a must for wildlife lovers, the vervet monkeys can seen up close on the property when the troops go thru daily. Hummingbirds fly through the livingroom, little bullfinches regularly visit the parrot and hawks sore in the blue skies above. At certain times of year looking across from the villa you can see the whales migrating in the distance (if you’re lucky)! There are herds of donkeys, sheep and goats roaming the island. Then there are two tame donkeys, one horse, 2 dogs and the above mentioned parrot are on our property! Palm trees grace the 5 acers along with many3ft tall ferns, large mango, orchid, Jacaranda trees and a variety of other beautiful flowering plants. Don’t forget about the soothing pool and fountain as you watch the gorgeous sunsets. Private massages can be arranged at the villa.

We have beautiful hikes right from our property over ancient waterfalls, bridges and caverns or right along the Four Seasons golf course path which takes you into a beautiful ghaut and over a bridge.

For your night life there are live bands -usually 3 nights a week and karaoke. Or you can just chill-out on the deck and star gaze and get mesmerized by the fireflies.

On our sister island, St Kitts, there are many historical sites to including Brimstone Hill Fort, go to casinos and the golf course at the Marriot Hotel, (this island has a much different flavor than Nevis). St Kitts is a 40 minute boat ride on the island ferries.

We can make all travel arrangements to and from Airport where your own private driver will take you to the water taxi at Reggae Beach for a beautiful boat ride over to Nevis, (boat ride is private or up to 6 people is only 20 minutes)

Arrangements can be made for your first night meal to be delivered and at certain times a private gourmet chef can buy the groceries, prepare your meal, serve it and (best of all) clean up afterwards. However, there are 4 casual beach bars at the bottom of our road or the fancier Four Seasons restaurants, along with the different plantation inns and other restaurants.

We act as your private concierge so just provide your wish list. We stay in a small cottage on the property that allows total privacy for the main villa.

There are only a handful of properties that match these attributes!

So fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here. The home has everything we could have needed and the property is beautiful. It was private, remote, and safe.

Barbara and Sandy are amazing hosts and were so incredibly helpful with our trip. We were having trouble booking a Winnair flight...and they drive down to the airport and made all arrangements for us before we arrived. They really are just fantastic.

The view is amazing, and we LOVED the dogs, the horse, and the donkeys on the property.

Our favorite beach on the island is right down the hill. Always quiet and relatively empty. I also highly recommend the hike to Nevis peak.

We are retuning very soon. Thanks so much for a wonderful week. :)

2013 Stay At Estate of Mind

  • 5 of 5

5 Stars!!! If you love nature, serenity, privacy, spectacular views, getting off the beaten path, and a change from the typical tourist accommodations, then this lovely home and property is for you. With an open air concept, you'll share the central living area with beautiful birds trying to nest in the chandeliers, and an occasional Monkey peeking at you from the roof......not to mention the owner's incredibly brilliant and welcoming pups, and their adorable donkeys and horse also on property. The two master suites are charming and comfortable, as is the entire house, and everything you need is provided. The views are stunning, and everything is within driving distance. Try to find Lovers Beach while there. Not easy to find, but well worth it if you want your own beautiful private tropical spot on the island. The owners, Barbara and Sandy, are just simply the best people I've met in a very long time. They will ensure your comfort and provide any information you need to make your stay on this very special little island memorable. My visit to Nevis, Estate of Mind, and meeting Barbara, Sandy, and their four-legged family, and many friends will always be a cherished memory.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at Estate of Mind for our honeymoon and had an extraordinary time. The house was beautiful and charming, the view amazing and our hosts became our friends as well as guides as they shared what to seek out and avoid (e.g. Norwegian meatballs) when it came to food, places, etc.

Every night we watched the sky come to life with a different sunset and every morning we awoke with clouds skittering across the sky, getting in place for the new day. In between we visited all the various sites on Nevis, from craggy coast to smooth shore, lush rain forest to crumbling sugar mills and plantations.

The hosts volunteer with the local humane society so there were four legged creatures around should you want to get your fix of dog or donkey or parrot (which I did!), but only come if invited (which they were!).

It was truly a magical experience, one we will never, ever forget. Thank you dear hosts and friends.

My husband and I have stayed at Estate of Mind three times now, each time more magic than the last.

We have enjoyed the fantastic views of St Kitts while we sip our rum punch by the pool. The fact that the house is up on the side of the mountain provides a welcome breeze on a hot day. We just love the owners Sandy and Barbara, and their friendly pack of pets, which include, dogs, horses, and a parrot. The house is conveniently situated near to beaches and restaurants. The airport and port are a short drive away.

With any luck we will return to this magic house soon.

lovely holiday home. stunning location.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at Estate of mind, this time it was because we wanted to get married in Nevis. Sandy and Barbara were brilliant, they organized everything from the wedding on the beach to the reception at the house. What a great time. we love the location of the property and my little boy especially loves the animals there which are all very friendly.. we will definitely be going back.

Relaxed is the Estate of Mind

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned form Nevis in March 2012 and our stay at Estate of MInd. The challange of getting to Nevis with the taxi ride from the airport to the and the boat ride across the channel was only the beginning. We were met at Oualie Beach by Raymond from Albern Car rental. He was so nice to lead us up to the house which is an adventure on Nevis roads. The property is definitely seculuded. The hous and view were spetacular. The weather perfect. The open concept to the house fit the site so well. The monkeys ate our soap at the outside shower. Evenings were the best with the view of the stars and St. Kitts complemented by the sheer quiet and ever present breeze. Barb and Sandy were so helpful without being intrusive.

Our only complaint, though minor was that the pool temperature could have been warmer.

But, e would go back in a heart beat!
