About Austin Wallace

My name is Austin Wallace. I was born in Nevis and lived there until was 18 years when I migrated to St. Croix (U. S. V. I) and later attended college in Vermont and post graduate at the University of Michigan. My wife Dawn is a Vermonter who first visited the Nevis in 1976 and fell in love with the island and its natural beauty. After retiring in 2007 we moved back to Nevis where we have a home. One of our plans was to build two home style cottages with adequate amenities and a rental rate that is affordable to visitors to the island. e SeaGrape Height cottages were designed and constructed in accordance with our guidelines. This is the first full year that they became available to guests.

Austin Wallace purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Austin Wallace chose Camps

SeaGrape Heights cottages were designed by me and my wife Dawn. They were built on land owned by my parents. Since her visit to Nevis, Dawn picked this spot to build our house. Due to the lack of an access road our house was built in another location. Years later we were able to construct SeaGrape Heights in that spot

What makes this cottage unique

SeaGrape Heights cottages have the feeling of a home and specifically a tropical home. They are perched on a hillside and accessible only via a private road. They provide the feeling of truly being secluded with no other buildings nearby. The view is indeed very spectacular. This alone is worth the stay.

Sea Grape Heights is Heavenly!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Sea Grape Heights was an absolutely AMAZING experience!!! I stayed in the one bedroom unit from 3/24 to 4/2/18. Austin and Dawn are fabulous hosts! They’ll help to link you with any services you may need (ex: car rental/driver’s license). They also have plenty of resources to help arrange for outstanding activities and adventures (ex: a dolphin encounter, basket weaving lessons, and a hike up a rainforest mountain to see a waterfall)! The cottage is extremely well appointed, completely comfortable, and absolutely adorable! The ocean view is to die for! I highly recommend it to all!

Great Home Base to Explore the Islnsd

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is high up on a hillside, providing beautiful views of both the Atlantic and Caribbean. It is fully equipped, spotlessly clean and the front porch was great for relaxing, reading or just enjoying the warm breezes. The photos are very accurate, but are of the two bedroom cottage. We stayed in the one bedroom, right next door, and it is of the same design, just somewhat smaller overall. The owner Austin could not have been more helpful, and as he lives on the island was available to help at just about a moments notice. Also, the arrangements he made for our taxi at the St Kitts airport to the dock, then water taxi over to Nevis, all late at night, were seamless and the same for our return to the airport. The cottage is quite private and not really within walking distance of much, but is short drive to all areas of the island - a rental car was important. It made a great place for a home base from which to get about whenever we wanted.

One of the best ever!

  • 5 of 5

View? Check

Clean? Check

Has everything we need? Check (including a cooler to take to the beach)

Has the funnest driveway on earth? Check!

To top it off, Austin is a great host and easy to learn the local info from. The pictures don’t do it justice, so if you’re wavering, just do it. You won’t be sorry...

Great Cottage, Beautiful View!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about Austin Wallace and his cottage. Austin went above and beyond as a host to make sure we arrived safely and were comfortable during our stay. He arranged a taxi to pick us up at the St. Kitts airport and take us to the ferry and then arranged to have us picked up in Nevis and taken to the cottage where there was a rental car waiting for us. The cottage is roomy and comfortable. It has everything you need for a great stay in Nevis. The view is spectacular! We enjoyed sitting on the porch and watching the sunset in the evenings. The cottage is located close to a grocery store and there is a great fruit stand just down the road. You do need a car to get around, though. The driveway is very steep so I would advise you to allow Austin to help you arrange for a rental car that is able to get up it. I would strongly recommend this cottage to anyone.

We enjoyed everything from the spotless accomadation, to the beauty of the area, and the amazing ocean views. Austin was a great host and made us feel truly at home in Nevis. Nevis is a special place and this was a special rental!

Beautiful piece of paradise!

I had a wonderful week at this beautiful cottage with breathtaking views of the water, mountains, sunrise and sunset!! The owners, Austin and Dawn, were welcoming and gracious and oriented me to everything I needed for a perfect stay! The cottage is beautiful, well-equipped, comfortable (including the bed!), and conveniently located! Incredible vacation!!

Car: recommended

Seagrapeheights cottages are located within a short walking distance from the seashore at Long Haul Bay where reefs near the shore provide good snorkeling and selected areas are good for swimming. Also within walking distance of the cottages is Herbert's Beach a well known popular spot where you can take a lunch and spend the day swimming and basking in the sun or in the shade of nearby coconut trees. Or if you choose you may have lunch and drinks at Nisbet Plantation Hotel beach restaurant a short distance along the beach from Herbert's Beach. Snorkeling and wind surfing/sailing are regular activities at Herbert's Beach (note beach pictures of Herbert's beach).

For those interested in worshiping or seeing historical places, St. James Anglican church (a several centuries old stone building) is about a 1/2 mile from the cottages. Also, if you are interested in visiting the campus of the Medical School of the Americas, that is also within a 1/2 mile walk. For those seeking some physical challenges, you will have direct access to hiking the hills above the cottages.
