Hummingbird House - Large Luxury Villa with Spectacular Views

Bedrooms 3
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Located on the lower slopes of Mount Nevis, the property benefits from great views yet only 5 minutes from the beach. The villa is located in arguably one of the best private gardens on the island. Lush tropical plants, palm trees and fruit trees with spectacular views 180 degrees across the Caribbean sea and St Kitts.

Extensive accommodation includes on the upper level 3 large bedrooms (2 king and 1 twin) all ensuite with imported Spanish marble tiles and jacuzzi baths. The large Great Room features a very well stocked kitchen and extensive seating area with entertainment centre inc Plasma and cable TV. To the rear of the property is a screened verandah with seating area where one can relax overlooking the gardens and rain forest and watch the monkeys or hummingbirds!

The best feature of the property is the large screened front verandah with a seating area and dining table which can, if required, seat up to 10 adults. It offers spectacular views of the pool,, additional decking, garden and the Caribbean sea across to St Kitts.

On the lower level the owners have built an air conditioned family games room which extends the width of the property. This features pool and air hockey tables and a settee which converts to a double bed capable of sleeping an additional adult. Adjoining this room is a large ensuite wet room and wc ideal for washing off the sand after a day at the beach.

Hummingbird House is situated in a very small development with no passing traffic. The neighbours are friendly and local professionals.

The nearest beach is only a 5 minute drive away, accessed via either Jessups or Barnes Ghaut villages, whilst supermarkets, Charlestown and airport are only a 10 minute drive away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to drop a quick note to thank you so very much for letting us enjoy your home in Nevis.

Hummingbird House was wonderful and we fell in love with Nevis and the wonderful people who call it home.

The only draw back is that the time flew so quickly and there was so much more to see, do and enjoy! We never managed to get back to Double Deuces and Mark and Lyndy-so they will be on top of our list next trip. Hummingbird House is pure perfection...again wish we had spent more time there. That kitchen is certainly set up to cook and entertain.Had we not wanted to soak up every beach and garden we certainly could have idled time right there for the eight days. We did enjoy the pool in the evening and that view is incredible.

The house is perfect. Great location to many restaurants, beaches and town. It’s well equipped in the kitchen, the pool, towels, snorkel gear, beach chairs it has it all! Fridge was stocked with beverages and snacks which made Day 1 very pleasant! I hope you all book and enjoy as much as we did! You won’t be disappointed!

Gets better every time

  • 5 of 5

Been many times to stay here and always great. The owners add new items to the property every year and it’s always fun seeing what those are. The upgraded kitchen appliances this time are a huge addition. Always impressed by the lovely, quiet neighbourhood, lovely gardens, great decking and lots of space. The staff supporting the house are friendly and efficient and everything happens like clockwork which isn’t bad for a laid back island. Owners very receptive and helpful

Wonderful stay in Nevis!

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

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!
