This place was superb in every way. We spent 2 weeks on Nevis and were so happy to have this very private property and beach. The owners Jane and Ron were happy to assist in any way and answer all of our questions. There is a collections of books and pamphlets at the Villa to help plan any outings you may want to take. The housekeeper Jeanette was meticulous in her cleaning and there was always an abundance of beach towels. The pool with new blue tiles was welcome in the late afternoon after spending time in the heat! The grounds are beautifully maintained as well, and full of flowering shrubs, trees and flowers. We ate breakfasts and spent many nights on the comfortable screened lanai and got swept away with the natural beauty of this part of the island. The roar of the surf on the reef, the songs of the tree frogs and birds, and the palm fronds blowing in the breeze made beautiful background music! The quiet beach was an interesting place to spend the day. Long walks, superb snorkeling so close to shore and at the reef (we saw lobsters and octopus as well as colorful fish) and talking with the Nevisians who came to this part of the island to collect conch shells. They were so friendly and informative, and we were intrigued by the way they hammered the shell to get at the delicacy-conch. One fellow brought his nephews to the beach and he shared a freshly cracked coconut with us. We truly felt like part of their life here and felt very safe and welcome. We rented a car (highly recommended and easy to navigate around the island) from Marlon. Our favorite places were Lime on da beach for drinks and for visiting with people who work on Nevis. Pat, the bartender has a great sense of humor and a great outlook on life. Our favorite place for dinner was Indian Summer. Excellent butter chicken and coconut shrimp curry. To sum up, you can not go wrong staying at Coral Villa. Jane will go out of her way to ensure that your holiday experience will be as good as it can get. We have travelled extensively, and this was by far our most memorable and relaxing place. We are looking forward to returning!
