After you've looked around this listing, please visit our website for lots more photographs, video tours and information about this exceptional villa.
Completed in 2008, Coccoloba really is a sight to behold. A West Indian hip-shaped roof sits above plantation style teak verandahs covering an area of 3420 square feet. In addition there is an enormous pool allowing 54’ laps and providing a stunning 21’ infinity edge. Adjoining the pool is a further 1000 square feet of soft Jerusalem limestone deck. The whole property oozes simple clean lines and open spacious living areas.
Walk through Coccoloba’s front door and the first thing you notice is a breathtaking view of St. Kitts. Thirty two feet of bi-fold glass doors open up from the great room to give unobstructed views across the infinity edge pool, over ‘The Narrows’ and on to St. Kitts. You can even see St. Barts on a clear day! The kitchen and great room are open plan with honed limestone flooring, cypress vaulted ceiling, comfortable soft furnishings and every appliance needed for a modern kitchen. In the Great Room there is also Wi-Fi broadband internet, telephone and a new home entertainment system consisting of 55' Samsung 4k TV, Sony a/v receiver and Definitive Technology 600 ProCinema speakers. We have cable TV and world wide sports channels covering everything you wouldn't want to miss.
Wake up in the king sized teak four poster in the master bedroom and gaze over your feet through the 8’ glass doors at the Atlantic Sea. Turn your head to the left and look through another 10’ opening at the Caribbean Sea and the rising sun lighting up St Kitts. The guest bedroom can be furnished with either a king size bed or two individual beds. Bi-fold doors from this bedroom lead directly onto the pool.
The villa is surrounded on all four sides with beautiful Trinidadian teak decked verandahs. The west verandah is 14’ deep by 72’ long with dining table, sofa, chairs and chaise longue. Watching the sunset from this elevation of 270’ is amazing, especially when you are treated with the famous ‘green flash’. You will also find that the elevation deters the mosquitoes that are usually found at sea level.
The villa appears to hang on the edge of a hill overlooking Oualie Bay. It is set in 33,000 sq ft of landscaped garden at the end of a private road. Sitting back from the main island road and benefitting from the omission of adjoining neighbors, Coccoloba enjoys peacefulness and serenity. Turn off the verandah lights at night and watch the fireflies dance through the Coccoloba (Latin for ‘Seagrape’).
Coccoloba is perfectly located for enjoying the best of Nevis. Lover’s Beach, Oualie Beach, Tamarind Bay, Cades Bay and Pinney’s Beach are all within two miles. A great choice of restaurants including Gallipot, Mount Nevis, Miss June’s, Oualie Beach Hotel, Coconut Grove and Yachtsman’s Grill are also on the doorstep. Oualie Bay provides water sports including scuba diving, yacht charter, sailing, kayaking, snorkeling, deep sea fishing and wind surfing. Take a water taxi over to St Kitts and enjoy a meal at Beach House or Spice Mill. All that Oualie Bay offers within a 10 minute walk.

About Peter & Louise
Louise and I visited the island for the first time in 2006 with a view to placing the island of Nevis in our top ten choices to build a vacation home. Within four weeks we decided we need look no further than Nevis and placed a deposit on a 35,000 sq ft plot. I am a civil engineer and decided to take a sabbatical in order to pull together my own crew of Nevisians and build the house myself. By the time it was finished in 2008 the island had got it's hooks into me and I never left. Louise joined me and we have made a life for ourselves on the island. We have our own construction project management consultancy and I have a contractors licence on Nevis. Last year I finished the complete rebuild of Paradise Beach Resort to which I am about to add five more beachside pole houses. We have also completed the construction of a series of vacation homes for owners residing in the UK, USA and Canada.
Peter & Louise purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Peter & Louise chose New Castle
We put over a 1000 miles on the clock of our rental in just four weeks on this tiny 36 square mile island. We covered every realtors listing and searched every nook and cranny of the island. Eventually we found the perfect location, high above Oualie Bay overlooking the Narrows and St Kitts yet tight up to the coast line to give unprecedented views - but it wasn't for sale! Some research revealed the owner was in America and had sat on the land for twelve years. A few phone calls later, a deal was struck and the plot was ours!
What makes this Villa unique
We are at the end of the private road known as Ridge Road. We have no immediate neighbours so while we are in the thick of the islands best restaurants, activities and beaches we are utterly private, quiet and serene

Wonderful Nevis paradise with breathtaking view
Fabulous place! Fabulous island and people. Peter and Louise were fantastic hosts who made everything easy. The house is beautifully designed and constructed and it was so wonderful opening up all the doors so the house and the outside were one space. And it was also refreshing that the landscaping was lush and blended with the architecture so well. Ideal for two couples.
This is the place to stay!
This house is fantastic and the views are utterly amazing. Everything was clean and very comfortable. A view from every room. Peter and Louise we’re extremely accommodating from arranging transportation to having “the basics” there when we arrived so that we didn’t need to rush to the grocery store. We couldn’t have made a better decision when we choose Coccoloba. Highly recommended!!
The rainbows, the sunsets, the hummingbirds, the monkeys, the smell of the gardens. This place is heaven on earth! Peter & Louise were absolutely wonderful! If you are looking for peace & quiet, complete and total privacy and a place to decompress this is it! The pictures don't do it justice. We left the house once a day to get out but could absolutely stay put if you really wanted to. Restaurants are not very far away either. Perfect location! Will definitely return!
This property sits on a beautifully manicured lot with a view to die for. The pool was perfect and looks as good in person as in the pictures!
The house has great ventilation with the fully folding doors providing refreshing breezes during the day, and there's A/C in the bedrooms if you need it at night. Peter and Louise were so nice, and always available for asssistance if we needed it. We will be back!!
The Best View Ever (in all our travels)
Freshly back from our stay at Coccoloba, and that amazing view is seared into our brains forever. The way the infinity pool blends into the Caribbean Sea is breathtaking. We could not stop staring at the amazing view and especially loved the sunset reflection in the pool. This place is perfectly appointed, perfectly laid out, perfectly designed, and even perfectly provisioned (basic groceries to start!). Several days, we opted not to leave at all. The open-window wall is an amazing feature. Opening the house every morning and having coffee in the midst of the 180 degree water view was truly special. Not to mention the espresso machine and milk frother! We found nowhere else on the island we liked better. Peter and Louise were very easy to work with and so friendly and helpful! They made the transfers from the airport to water taxi to car rental simple and seamless. I cannot say enough about the entire experience. Nevis is remote and it was a bit of an adventure as we drove around the island seeking out many delightful restaurants. We truly felt a world away, but that world away was indeed, luxurious. Wi-fi, a local cell phone, satellite TV etc . . . we were as connected as we wanted to be. We were 2 adults with a teenaged son and between us we read 10 books, took 5 naps, cared for the 2 cats, watched at least 4 monkeys in the surrounding trees every day, and deepened our tans significantly. If you are considering it, book Coccoloba now. You will not be sorry.
Coccoloba is the perfect locus whence to enjoy Nevesian paradise!
We returned for our 3rd thoroughly delightful week-long holiday at this glorious one-in-a-million luxury lodging.
EXTERIOR: We were enticed by the long (~12 meter shallow-to-deep) sparklingly clear fresh-water pool. Spectacular underwater lighting invites repetitive nighttime swims. Credit brilliant siting; its infinity-edge disappears into the Caribbean.
An extensive tile deck surrounds the pool and home, for endless outdoor relaxing. We never wanted to leave this beautiful hilltop eyrie, with views to die for. Sunsets are enthralling on the western horizon. Attractive terraced tropical gardens surround the villa, occasionally visited by a fascinating native vervet monkeys, and complete the enchanting setting. A fully featured propane-fired barbecue grille is available on the exterior deck. Importantly for us, the villa accords tranquil 360-degree total privacy.
INTERIOR: A spacious open floor-plan flows seamlessly from indoors to outdoors. We enjoyed many meals on the cool covered veranda that overlooks the channel separating St Kitts and Nevis. Note however, excellent restaurants are less than 15 min away. Furnishings are top-drawer contemporary with lots of natural wood. The large tiled designer bathrooms are fitted with high-tech showers. Bedrooms and the great room feature room-wide 2-meter-tall glass door panels, which fully open onto the pool deck. So you feel outside even whilst inside enjoying pleasing zephyrs wafting through.
All appliances are new top-of-the-line; kitchen is over-kitted with cookware, tableware, cappuccino-maker and every utensil or gadget that you could desire. A/C is limited to the bedrooms, but we used infrequently preferring the refreshing breezes and sounds of the lush environment. Overhead fans abound.
Maid and pool service is mid-week. The villa is spotlessly clean throughout.
GENERAL: Owners Peter & Louise are so friendly, helpful and fully knowledgeable. They efficiently organised local transport—land and water taxis to/from SKB airport and a perfect on-island self-drive hired vehicle. With thanks to the owners, the logistics became effortless. Since they live/work but a few km away, they're promptly available if needed.
Ask Peter to explain their complex entertainment system. 70+ cable TV channels plus stored media and DVD libraries. WiFi/Internet is good for Nevis. Two small cute and affectionate cats reside. The 1/2-km private road steeply climbing to the villa is daunting, but managed with our 4WD.
Other Activities: Kayaking, Wildlife Viewing, Shelling, Health/Beauty Spa
