I never thought Nevis could get any better, but then I returned and stayed at Coral Reef Villa. My first adventure on Nevis was as a solo traveler, so I stayed at one of Jane's other properties, Conch Shell Cottage, which is a lovely bungalow with all the essentials one (or two) could possibly need. I would highly recommend Conch Shell, especially for solo travelers, but nothing quite compares to the views, comfort and serenity of Coral Reef Villa. From the moment you arrive in St. Kitts, everything is seamless. You are picked up at the airport by Daisy, taken to meet Wincent at the boat, and met by Marlon at Ouaile Beach to whisk you away to heaven. Nevis is a place to relax and refresh, so don’t go there thinking you can shop and go out on the town every night. It’s not that kind of place, and that’s exactly what I love about it. The hot springs in Charlestown are a great way to begin your day and socialize with local folks. After your dip in the springs, go and have breakfast at The Café Des Arts on the waterfront in Charlestown. The breakfast sandwiches (and especially the bread!) are to die for. If you want to take back a bit of Nevis, visit New Castle Pottery, just down the road from Nisbet Plantation, or Kennedy’s Hand Craft Center which is on the way to Golden Rock. Both of these people are local artists with pieces worth pampering to get back home. Go off the beaten path, and explore the island and its untouched beauty. Savor in the local fare of fresh fish, lobster, vegetables and fruits which are abundant in Charlestown. Mansa’s is a close alternative for fresh staples if you don’t want to venture all the way to Charlestown. There’s also a gas station about a mile or so away that has delicious fresh breads and the best butter cookies you’ll ever sink your teeth into. Don’t’ miss Golden Rock, Sunshines, and Lime on Friday night! If you have the time and would like to take the scenic route back to St. Kitts, leave on the ferry from Charlestown and take the Caribe Breeze. You can sit up top and really enjoy the views when you are leaving. It’s inexpensive ($10 US) and an enjoyable ride if you have the time and the weather is nice. Jane is the most accommodating hostess one could ask for, and she will do whatever is necessary to make sure you have the vacation of a lifetime. I will return to Nevis, and I will rent from Jane Paul when I do. The only question is when.
