Overview

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.

Brilliant villa - a home from home experience

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I have been going to Nevis for quite a few years now but we normally stay at the Four Seasons as there was just 2 of us. However this year we had some friends come with us so we decided to go for a villa and chose Hummingbird House.

Right from the start we had a brilliant experience! Richard who owns the villa was so helpful in sorting all the details out for transfer from St Kitts to Nevis and car hire and provisions for when we arrived. He was so much better than any other villa owners I have dealt with - so thank you Richard.

The villa itself is beautiful and the views from the terrace are unbelievable. Right from the start is was like staying in a home not rented accommodation with all the little luxuries you rarely get. The kitchen was fully stocked with all sorts of appliances, there were 2 separate fridges for beers which the boys loved, an abundance of towels that were thick and not scratchy which is frequently the case and so many other things that made our stay a wonderful one.

I would thoroughly recommend this villa for anyone looking to stay in Nevis. My friend and I are going back this year and even though it is just the 2 of us this time we have booked the villa again instead of our usual hotel as we loved it so much!!

The property, the home, the furnishings and supplies is far more than expected..

  • 5 of 5

Our family ranked this home at the top of the list of homes we have stayed in via VRBO and Home Exchange. We own several rental properties in Charleston, SC and have always strived to furnish the homes as if we lived there full time. We picked up a few tips from The Hummingbird House set up and the owner and detail of communication to assure guests are well informed.

The house is located in a convenient location to most every venue of Nevis. And the view is tops.

I could write a book on our stay but for this purpose of VRBO look no further than this home if you are visiting Nevis.

Outstanding Destination

  • 5 of 5

Our second year at the beautiful Hummingbird House on Nevis and just as memorable as the first. Everything is attended to by the wonderful hosts/owners, Clair & Richard Lax; from taxi service from the airport on St. Kitts to the speedboat ride over to Nevis to a refrigerator stocked with all you'll need for breakfast and even ice cold Carib beer and Ting, the local grapefruit soft drink. It's all arranged and ready for you to enjoy upon arrival. There is a sense of coming home at Hummingbird House - the cabinets are stocked with everything you have at home and maybe even a few additional items! The furniture is comfortable and functional and the large screened porch is ideal for relaxing, reading, entertaining and serving meals in the fresh air. All in all, a wonderful experience. In fact, we've already reserved our next visit in March, 2018!

Very relaxing place

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Hummingbird House on the Nevis island. Hummingbird House is a very nice large house and you have everything you need in it (really everything). The outside garden is spectacular. We enjoyed everything including the pool, the verandah and the outside deck with the view and the palm tree on the deck. The decoration is very nice. The three rooms and beds are very comfortable. I totally crashed in my bed every night. It is useful to read all the other reviews (they are all good reviews but everyone is adding a little detail that is helpful). The area where Hummingbird House is located is very calm and there is no sound at night. While driving on the island, you will see goats and monkeys. As well, monkeys are regularly coming in the garden of the House.

The owner provides you with suggested places to eat and other useful information and helps you with the transfer from the airport as well as rental car. Although Nevis is a very calm island, there is plenty of very nice place to eat (we loved Mango at the Four Season because of the sea view and the good food). We went to most of the beaches and they are all nice. My husband did kite surfing at Nisbet beach almost everyday with his own equipment. I did snorkeling almost everyday. If you like to buy fish to eat, the fresh fish comes in at Oualie beach every morning. Rita taxi helped us to liaise with the "fish lady". You have to go to L&L duty free shop to get French wines and nespresso cups.

People on the island are very nice and polite. It is a very secure place. In conclusion, very nice island that is not too developped.

Nevis Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Hummingbird house exceeded our expectations. It offered beautiful views, homey decor and all the ammenities one could want. It was a wonderful surprise to have all the items we needed for breakfast provided for us. Saving us from rushing out to a grocery store. A really nice touch. This house will be our choice if we ever return to Nevis.
