Beautiful Historical Setting
We have just returned from our time in Nevis at the Vervain Mill in Gingerland. The property is stunning with almost full 360 views of the island. We were able to spend our mornings watching the monkeys and the goats, and with our rental car, could be down at a beach with a quick 10 minute drive to the beach. Our concerns about being stuck up on the mountain was dismissed upon our arrival and realizing that almost nothing is further than a 15 minute drive away. Wendy the owner is wonderful and accommodating, and the on-site management team took care of all of our transfers, the car rental and even met us at the pier to welcome us to the island. The Mill is a beautiful glimpse into Nevis' past and is a delightful, albeit quirky place to stay. With it's beautiful round rooms, the 'turret' sitting area and the natural breezes, it's a wonderful escape truly set in paradise. We would have loved to have had a BBQ for cooking, but we enjoyed simple meals when we cooked in, and had lovely meals at the many local restaurants. We are so glad we had the opportunity to stay in this little piece of yesterday!
Spectacular home with amazing views
We had a wonderful time at Vervain Mill. Staying in a beautiful property with such an interesting historical significance was indeed special.
The home is clean, and we had everything we needed for an enjoyable vacation with our two older children.
Rez was very helpful to us through our stay . We cooked breakfast (enjoyed fresh fruit from the roadside stands) and ate our main meals out. The food on the island is incredible. Hiking to The Source was an incredible journey, and we had nice snorkeling at Pinney's Beach. You may not want to leave the house because the views are out of this world: 180° view of the ocean!
Thanks for staying at Vervain Mill. We hope to see you again!
Incredible Property, Amazing Vacation!
This property was amazingly unique and the highlight of our trip to Nevis. We had several days where we never even left the house, we just hung out with the kids, went in the pool and enjoyed the incredible views. Look to one side, sweeping views of the sea (you can see Monserrat and its volcano in the distance as well as Antigua), look to the other the volcano on Nevis towering above. Although the property states no children, if you inquire and feel comfortable having your kids here they will make exception. We have an 11,9, and 5 year old and to all of us this house was like it was out of a dream. They especially loved the sitting room at the top of the Mill, and spent lots of time hanging out together up there playing cards...it was some great sibling bonding time. A few things to note with the kids, you will be going up and down lots of stairs in the mill, which we nor the kids minded at all, and the pool is deep. We brought our own pool floats from home, and swimmies for the youngest (our older two can swim and actually are now both better swimmers from all the time they spent in the pool!) It was so nice coming home after exploring the island to this beautiful retreat. The tree frogs sing to you at night and you hear the donkeys and the sheep....and the monkeys! The monkeys hang out in the yard and we saw them regularly, one morning there were 14 of them in the yard and by the pool. They are very shy and run off, so no worries! It was an incredible experience for our family and even before we left the kids were asking to come back next year. Thanks Vervain Mil for a wonderful vacation and amazing family memories.
Thanks so much for your kind words. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and felt the magic of Nevis. We look forward to seeing you again. All the best, Wendy T.
Rest & Relaxation
This was an amazing property! If you are looking for something different and unique, this is the place. This wonderful home has 4 levels: bottom floor is 2 bedroom areas, 2 full baths plus laundry room; second level is the kitchen/dining area with a separate space for the fridge & pantry (Great views & trade winds from the kitchen window!) ; third level is another bedroom with a unique panoramic view & full bath; and the top floor is a lovely little sitting room with views all around and a balcony that offers fantastic views of the Atlantic, Antigua & Monserrat (on clear days) and stargazing that is beyond words! You will also see cruise boats traveling in the distance to & from Antigua at night. Make use of the binoculars! We slept on the ground floor, in my opinion, the best for enjoying the winds & nature sounds while you sleep. The African Vervet Monkeys are in the yard every morning & evening but prove shy to capture on camera. They are fun to watch though. Always have a cup of coffee or tea on the veranda in the mornings! (And a beer or cocktail in the evenings) There was a donkey & her baby that kept getting into the yard while we were there & would come up right outside our door at night. Lovely landscaping, though I think the gardener hasn't been keeping up as well as he should. Be warned, the beds are Very firm so if you aren't used to sleeping on box springs you may not rest very well. The pool is just right for a cool dip and some relaxing in the sun. The outdoor furniture is still in good shape, but could use updating. And you will get sunburned so use sunscreen. We spent 10 wonderful days here and it was just what we were hoping for. Very quiet & low-key island. All of the people are just so friendly & helpful. There are SO many great places to eat or the kitchen is great if you prefer to cook your own meals. **Read the guest books for helpful information from previous visitors. Don't be shocked by the street that leads down to the house, first impressions would make you miss out on a most memorable experience.Overall, this property could use with a few updates but is very clean and cozy and we would definitely recommend it to anyone especially if this is your first visit to the island. We hope that we can return here in the future.
Vervain Mill is a very special place! It’s private, beautiful, gorgeous views, lovely island. We had a wonderful time- loved the night sounds of frogs and donkeys-yes donkeys! Kay managed all the logistics beautifully for us. Thank you for sharing this beautiful place!
Thanks so much for staying at Vervain and for your nice review. I hope we'll see you again for another getaway. All the best, Wendy
