A 500 sq ft one bedroom cottage with a 180 degree view of ocean
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.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Owner chose Camps
SeaGrape Heights cottages were designed by me and my wife Dawn. They were built on land owned by my parents. Since her first 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.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
My Second Stay
This was my second stay at Seagrape Heights. It just keeps getting better and better! The cottages are beautifully kept and beautifully run! Nevis is an island of spectacular beauty! Watching the sunrise every morning is a sheer delight. You will find lots of adventure, or lots of peace and quiet, whichever you prefer, or both! I went with my two sisterfriends and we had fun we will never forget!!! Be sure to go to the Gin Trap to watch the sunset, to Golden Rock to explore the flora and fauna, Nisbet for live music night, Mangos for live music brunch, and Sunshine’s for the Killer Bees!!! Enjoy!!!
Stunning views, fabulous host
We could not have had an easier arrival on Nevis. Austin arranged every necessary detail on our first visit to the island. He even spent a day giving us a tour of the island and showed us some local spots we would not have found. The cottage was immaculate and set in the hillside with a wrap around porch that has views that are like no other. We will definitely return here and have been sharing this gem with everyone we know.
So many hidden beaches just minutes from the property. This place is on the top of our list. Can't wait to return and enjoy more from the top notch host Austin.
LONG DISTANCE VIEW
Perched on a hillside to capture the cooling tradewind breeze, SeaGrape cottage was wonderfully elevated for a gorgeous 180 degree view of the sea below and St Kitts in the distance. While the bedroom did have air conditioning, the windows were thrown open to enjoy the sound of the surf. While the pictures on the website will give you a good idea of the location, they cannot convey the pleasure of a morning coffee nor an evening glass of wine enjoying the stunning view from the porch.
The cottage was immaculately clean and well stocked with the little things that are needed to get you going for that first day(s) when staying in a self-provisioning cottage. My wife and I are not strangers for this type of vacation and yet, I was impressed how well thought out everything was and that everything actually worked. Even the knives were sharp. I cannot vouch for the TV as we never turned it on, why bother.
If I had to pick one outstanding reminder of my stay I would have to say it was how Austin made everything easy and welcoming. He took care for all the arrangements; trouble free transportation from St Kitts and back, rental car, recommendations for the island and bits of local knowledge that made our stay more relaxing and certainly more enjoyable. Thank you for your kindness.

Spectacular views of the ocean and sister island St. Kitts - a perfect spot
The photos and description of this lovely cottage don’t do it justice! My wife and I loved our stay - very comfortable, clean and well equipped cottage in an awesome loctation. Fabulous views, walk to the water, minutes drive to the waterfall hike, a few minutes drive to some of the best quiet beaches including Lovers Beach and Oualie Beach. Can’t believe we didn’t stay longer. We had been to Nevis before and picked this cottage based on its location. We were really really pleased with the accommodations, the bedroom is super comfy, the porch is a perfect place to relax, the owner communicates quickly and clearly and gave us great suggestions, provided us with a connection to a discount car rental (Strikers) and Tazel (property manager/assistant) arranged everything for us including transfer from the airport in St Kitts to the water taxi to a pickup in Nevis and a rental car drop off! Wow! Tazel also provided us with countless tips on beaches, hikes, restaurants etc. We will most certainly return!
Sea Grape Heights is Heavenly!
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
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.
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.
