Tucked into the hillside 200 feet above the sea, a 5 minute walk to the beach, this seaside cottage offers a fabulous retreat away from it all.
We have had wonderful year after year return guests (some as long as 12 years) stay at the Cottage over the past years, so there have been years when the Cottage was completely booked and we have not had it posted on VRBO. As life situations change for people, this winter we have some weeks available so we have again been able to post on VRBO/Homeaway. As a result of this being considered a "new listing" again, VRBO does not provide the opportunity to transfer reviews from past years. And since our returning guests book directly with us, they do not have an opportunity to post a review. We look forward to posting reviews later this year after welcoming some newly booked guests.
The studio offers stunning views of the Oualie Bay area and more than 800 sq ft of inside and outside living space including a fully screened porch with dining table and second living area. Surrounded by trees, you can enjoy the gentle winds and gorgeous views from anywhere in the cottage. You may even spot some vervet monkeys in the trees while sitting on the porch.
The cottage is located in one of the most exclusive areas on the island on Ridge Road. The location is within 1 KM of 4 beaches, some of the best restaurants on the island including Four Season's Hotel, Nisbet Plantation, Coconut Grove, the newly renovated and expanded Gin Trap just around the corner, and Oualie Beach Hotel with all the water sport and cycling amenities available at the bottom of the road.
The kitchen is fully equipped with new silestone counters, a miele cooktop, full size refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, and dishwasher. A washer and dryer are also available in the basement and a propane BBQ is available on the outside porch. The inside living space consists of a living area with couch and 2 chairs and a king size bed that can be converted into 2 twin beds.
The cottage also comes fully equipped with quality linens and towels to enjoy during your stay. Cable TV, wifi internet and guest cell phone are also provided. Weekly housekeeping is provided for stays longer than 1 week.
The cottage has a large ceiling fan in the inside area and 2 fans with lights in the outside screened in porch area. We usually have a nice trade wind that blows, so that alone keeps things cool along with all the vegetation around the cottage that helps with cooling things too. There isn’t any formal garden area to sit in outside as the cottage is tucked into the hill overlooking Oualie Bay, but there is a separate outside unscreened porch area that you can sit on and enjoy the views to the ocean.
In terms of the beaches, all the beaches are public on Nevis, and lots of people not staying in the hotel use the Oualie Beach Hotel beach area again as long as the hotel is not really busy and if you order something to drink or eat they would be very happy that you are there. We also have some little beach chairs that you can use to take to the beach while you are here too. In addition, Chri-Shi Beach Restaurant is just 1 mile from the cottage heading toward town and has a fabulous beach area, offers wonderful yoga and boot camp classes in the morning and fabulous lunches 7 days a week, as well as recently offering movie nights once a week and dinner on the weekends.
There are 2 hotels & 1 restaurant/beach in the area that have pools Nisbet Plantation and Mount Nevis Hotel, and Double Deuce restaurant. Mount Nevis has a great pool. I think again if you ordered something to drink and possibly eat, they would be happy for you to sit around the pool - I would not hesitate to ask as people are usually very accommodating and especially if the hotel is not busy. Double Deuce restaurant is on Pinney's Beach close to town (where other restaurant/beach bars are located - Lime, Turtle Time, and Sunshine's) next to the Four Season's Hotel. Pinney's is a great beach area and they have a little pool.
There are flights directly into Nevis, but if you are arriving to Nevis from St Kitt’s there are a number of ferries available to get you over to Nevis. In addition, there are private water taxis we can help you arrange to take from the South Penninsula of St Kitt's that bring you directly to the dock at Oualie Beach where we will meet you and bring you up the hill to the cottage. When we are not on island, we have an absolutely wonderful property manager (Sonia Cornelius), who is a great resource on Nevis. She will meet you when you arrive in Nevis and bring you up to the cottage and give you a quick orientation of things. It is a 10 minute taxi ride from St. Kitt’s airport to the main ferry docks in Basseterre, then about a 40 minute ferry ride to Nevis (depending on the ferry you get on). Or the private water taxi is a 25 minute taxi ride to the South Penninsula on St Kitt's and a 5 minute water taxi ride over to Nevis.
We are always available to our guests during their stay - we are just a phone call away.
