Wonderful stay in Nevis!
Our family of four had a wonderful stay in Nevis. Richard was extremely responsive and helpful in every way. He arranged our transportation to the house along with the rental car. It was perfect. The house was well equipped and we felt like a true guest in his home. The beach chairs and umbrellas were new. There were tons of nice beach towels in the house as well. Nevis was a nice island. Very quiet and not many tourists on the island. Many times we were the only ones on the beach. We would highly recommend this home to anyone planning a trip!
Third Time & Still Charming!
We just can't get enough of Hummingbird House. This was our third year and it was the best ever. Clair & Richard, the owners, who could not be more attentive and friendly, are continually improving their home and this year we enjoyed the new range/oven, refrigerator and washer/dryer. And the large gas grill on the deck is perfect! We're told more surprises await on our next visit in 2019.
It's hard to leave Hummingbird with the huge screened porch, pool just a few steps out the door and large deck with amazing views of the Caribbean and St. Kitts. But venture out we did. We had wonderful lunches at Montpelier and Chrishi Beach Club and a great dinner at The Yachtsman. We also spent a few days at Chrishi beach on the lounges with the cool bar and restaurant steps away. A day trip via the ferry over to St. Kitts was fun and satisfied the retail therapy requirement and included a nice lunch at Sweet Cane - good fresh fish!. One tip: we took the much faster Apple Syder "ferry" back to Nevis. It's a speed boat that runs out of the St. Kitts marina and only costs $5 more per person.
While the monkeys, goats and occasional donkey provide lots of entertainment, we mostly enjoyed just hanging out at the pool, on the screened porch and out on the deck. Terrific breezes and beautiful Caribbean weather. We even saw our first "Green Flash" at sunset on the deck one evening!
As mentioned above, we are heading back to Hummingbird House next year and are as excited as we were the first time. We're obviously charmed!
Loved our stay at Hummingbird House
First, thanks to Richard who arranged our transfer from St. Kitts. From taxi to water taxi to rental car, all went seamlessly! There was plenty of room for my husband, me and our three college age daughters. We loved the deck with its beautiful views and cooling breezes so much that we began and ended our days there. The garden at Hummingbird House is well maintained and lush with many different flowers. The pool was refreshing after our days spent exploring or on the beach. Lounge chairs were very comfy! The house was very comfortable and kitchen seemed very well equipped, though we didn’t cook at all. There are many great places to eat on Nevis from beach clubs to the beautiful old plantations. We loved our time in Nevis and will definitely be back.
My husband and I recently stayed at Hummingbird House for one week. The house is beautifully furnished, fully equipped, and well maintained and attended to. The view of St. Kitts is breathtaking and the flowering gardens are lush. All the arrangements for transport and car rental were flawless. When we arrived there was fresh food in the fridge so we didn't have to run out to shop right away. There was an electrical problem in the house due to a recent minor power outage on the island and Richard, Isha and Travis made sure it was taken care of right away. They were responsive and available but not intrusive during our stay. The beaches were great, the food was delicious, and the pool was a great way to unwind after a day out. We had the perfect balance of adventure and relaxation on the island. We were touched by the warmth and caring of the people we met who call Nevis their home. Thank you Richard for taking such good care of us and making our first trip to Nevis so amazing. We will be back!
Beautiful house with a million dollar view
Couldn't ask for more in a house. Fully stocked kitchen, even lots of semi-full liquor bottles left from previous guests. I've never seen so much food in a rental house before - eggs, butter, milk, grapes, rice, cereal, wine, cheese, crackers, etc. Comfortable beds, housekeeper 2x a week, pool guy, and much more. If only the power didn't go out often for no reason, but I understand that's Nevis. And Nevis is special place for sure.
4th Time-better than ever
We spent two weeks at Hummingbird in January/February. We have rented a number of houses on Nevis and this is our favorite. It's in a great location with beautiful views and a spectacular garden. The house is very comfortable, nicely furnished and well-equipped. Since our last stay, a large deck extension was added with comfortable seating and an impressive barbecue. The owners are very responsive and very generous with the items they make available for guests. Three couples had plenty of space to hang out separately and together. Highly recommended.
