While staying in hotels is fantastic – and Nevis does have some truly wonderful hotels to choose from, many created from the buildings of former plantations – you can really get to know a place if you choose to rent a villa for your vacation instead. You can be as involved as you like in island life: hire a car or use the taxi services; go to the supermarkets or hop from restaurant to restaurant; stay by your private pool or hang out on the beach. Vacation rentals give you more options to choose from and, being more private than hotels, can be the perfect play for a family reunion or retreat with close friends.
Starting close to the shores on Nevis, we can suggest The Beach House. This is a cutely conceived three bedroom, three bathroom cottage that is just a few sandy steps away from some of the most stunning beach strolls on the island. Constructed with traditional Caribbean stylings, the white cottage is buried in bright gardens and features both a living room and a family room – plus a pool with a generous deck area that is perfect for lazy afternoons. There’s a gourmet kitchen with new appliances and a separate party bar for when the cocktail hour arrives. With the sea so close by and a bounty of tropical fish waiting to be visited on the nearby reefs, this is the perfect place to stay if you’re keen to immerse yourself in the ocean.
Turning from cute cottage to striking modernity, there is Blue Serenity. This is a chic and sleek setup only a few hundred yards from the finest swimming beach on the island. Blending modern expectations with Nevisian charm, this three bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom home comes complete with a gym, a dedicated yoga patio and high end fixtures and fittings throughout. A crisp white palette has been dressed with sea blues and oleander reds: the perfect place for a sophisticated vacation. Plus there’s an office space with a separate external entrance, so if anyone needs to hop on a work call they can do so without interrupting everyone else’s fun.
And finally, there’s Rutherglen House, a classic Caribbean villa nestled in the fairytale-sounding Gingerland. The three bedrooms and bathrooms are all in separate wings of the house, making it perfect for groups of couples looking to get some privacy – for the focus here is outside, with a gorgeous pool, multiple decking areas with tables, chairs and loungers, and an acre and a half of beautiful tropical gardens. With the sea peering through the palm trees, you can expect stunning sunrises on this side of the island. New owners have recently completed significant renovations and upgrades, creating a gorgeous, comfortable home. Tucked away on the slopes of Nevis, Rutherglen House offers peace and privacy.
We have, of course, many other holiday rentals to choose from, all of which can be viewed on our website. With a dedicated rental specialist waiting to help you with everything from airport transfers to car hire to securing private chefs, we’d love to help you plan your most memorable vacation yet.
