Properties under $500,000

It’s easy to spend whole hours together daydreaming of a new life in the Caribbean, only for those dreams to collapse when thoughts about the cost of living start creeping in. But what if you knew there were properties for sale on an undiscovered gem of an island – beautiful, charming properties with price tags well under the US$500,000 mark? Would that help change your daydreams into reality?

We’ve picked three of our favourite best value Nevis properties, dotted throughout the island and offering something for everyone. Which can you see yourself vacationing in – or maybe even living in full time?

Tree Tops

The first on offer is Tree Tops, a stunning property with a broad wraparound raised verandah nestled in nearly half an acre of mature gardens that are bursting with fruit trees and tropical plants. Set apporximately 900 feet above sea level, the aptly named home is all traditional designs with modern features including a newly refurbished bathroom and two brand new ensuite double guest bedrooms. There’s also Christmas Cottage, a perfect studio or office set in the gardens.

Perhaps one of the finest features of Tree Tops is its location, buried in the jungle high up on the Peak and taking advantage of the cooling Tradewinds. What’s more, it’s just a five minute walk from Golden Rock – easily one of the most beautiful and best restaurants on the island. A gorgeous home, cottage and garden for just US$495,000.

Wind-Chime Cottage

If a two-bedroom traditional Caribbean cottage set in half an acre of gardens filled with winding paths offering promises of enchantment around every corner is more your thing, Windchime Cottage is probably perfect for you. Everything has been completed with a careful attention to detail. From the hardwood floors throughout, to the white exterior with cheerful blue shutters, to the cosy corner ready for relaxing, this home is an ideal retreat.

There’s ample space for further development, too, whether you want to create a second cottage in the garden or add a pool. For only US$395,000 this charming home is an exciting opportunity.

Cottage 8

Finally, there’s even an option for just US$235,000. A one bedroom, one bathroom cottage set just a few steps from the island’s best beaches and some of the most popular restaurants, Clifton Gardens cottage is one of a group of beautifully styled homes that are all completed with plunge pools and set in cheerful tropical gardens. It may be a smaller offering than the others but it still has the traditional vaulted ceilings and soft touches that make it a quintessential Caribbean retreat.

And these are just three of our favourites – a hillside escape with bonus cottage in the grounds, a tucked away retreat with enchanting gardens, and a cute cottage mere steps from white sand beaches.
