  • Everything And Then Some

    "My wife and I have visited multiple islands, and have rented multiple homes, throughout the Caribbean for 13 years. It has always been our goal to choose a new island, have a new experience, and visit a new home, each year. However, after spending a week at Hummingbird House, it is hard for us not to rebook this lovely home for our next Caribbean holiday. When we arrived and found the fridge to be stocked with everything we need to enjoy our first day on Nevis, we realized that Richard takes hosting his lovely home to another level. The picture postcard view you see herein from the pool of Hummingbird House (looking at St. Kitts) is exactly that...a picture postcard. The home's screened in porch is perfect for enjoying as many hours in nature as you like. Pool temperature was right on...poolside furniture was very comfortable...bedrooms were comfortable and quiet...and the kitchen was well appointed with any dishes or appliances you could want. Starting the day on the back porch (also screened in) in the company of hummingbirds and monkeys set the tone for many lovely days on Nevis. Some personal travel tips: 1) the manager of the Turtle Time restaurant can hook you up with a local fisherman (a gentleman from South Africa) who will sell you fresh wahoo and mahi mahi (perfect for grilling on Hummingbird House's fabulous gas grill) ; 2) to experience the wonderful hospitality offered to visitors of Nevis, go to the Water Dept. BBQ on Friday night (a short distance from the Ram's Supermarket in Charlestown). Even better, buy the chef's a beer...you will make new friends instantly; 3) a lunch and a hike around the beautiful gardens of Golden Rock Plantation will be another highlight of your trip to Nevis. 4) A day trip to Nisbet Plantation will be time well spent (home of the best rum punch, IMHO, on Nevis). Having had these wonderful experiences, we now understand why Richard owns this home on this island. Do yourself a favor and book a week at Hummingbird House...just don't take my week for next year! :-)"

  • Wonderful vacation off the beaten path

    "We spent 2 weeks at Villa Verandah on Nevis and it was a wonderful time. The island is quiet and safe, very few tourists. We went mostly to Paradise Beach and, on a stretch of beach of almost a mile, there were never more than 10 people. The villa is really nice, with a marvelous screened terrace. It truly deserves its name as the verandah goes all the way around on both levels. We had one child that spent some time watching TV but all the adults were outside all the time. The pool is very nice and large enough to swim. Several people showed up at various times and took care of the yard, pool and house. Very clean and well maintained overall. Transportation was also well coordinated - we were picked up at the airport by a taxi driver (plenty of taxis at the airport on St Kitts) and then, to the envy of several people waiting at the docks, were handed over to the water taxi that took us immediately to Oualie beach where our rental car was waiting. Overall a very pleasant experience."

  • Loved it

    "The apartment was bright, colourful and very comfortable. It was so peaceful, quiet and had everything we needed and more. The pool and grounds were lovely and it was handy to everything. The Italian restaurant out the front was just like being in Italy, very enjoyable. Over all I would highly recommend it 😁򐐽򐘁"

  • Well-equipped unit, relaxing vacation spot

    "We stayed at this condo for two weeks immediately after spending a week at a timeshare resort. We had a rental car (parking directly adjacent) but could have done without as the taxi stand is almost in front of the complex and all excursions pick up a very short walk away. A grocery store and several restaurants are close by as well, and the Timothy Bay (Caribbean) beach and bars are also within walking distance. The property fronts on the Atlantic for those who enjoy sunrises and watching the waves. The complex has a lovely pool, and this unit has the closest access. It was nice to have the unit's first-floor bathroom easily accessible from poolside. Furnishings were comfortable, the air conditioning and fans always worked, and the kitchen was perhaps the best equipped we've experienced in a rental. Communication with the owner was easy; and the office manager, cleaning staff, and grounds crew were friendly and kept everything in good repair. We usually go somewhere different every winter, but should we head back to St. Kitts in the future, this is the first property we'd check."
