The Lazy Turtle Villa is one of the few beach side villas with private pool on Nevis.
Set between the mountain and the beach, the views are stunning from every room. A private path leads you to the white sands of Nisbet beach. A short walk leads you to Nisbet Plantation, a top rated plantation style inn where you can enjoy excellent dining or simply a cold drink at the casual beach bar. You can set up a tab there for your convenience.
The villa includes a very large porch with 2 hammocks, a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, a living room with WIFI, TV, and DVD and just outside is another hammock and gazebo nearby.
Our bedroom features Nevisian style mahogany beds with Egyptian cotton sheets. The master bedroom is air conditioned although most people prefer to fall asleep to the magical tradewinds.
We will pick you up at Nevis airport or on St. Kitts free of charge and bring you home where a rental car will await you. We pride ourselves on our service and convenience.
Tennis: Four Seasons tennis is second to none, with ten courts and ample facilities, services and amenities including night play and professional instruction.
Managed by world-renowned Peter Burwash International, the site comprises four red clay courts (two lit for night play) and six hard courts (three lit for night play). Tennis equipment, apparel and accessories are available from the pro shop, located in the sports pavilion.
The Four Seasons hotel is a short drive away and welcomes our guests for Tennis and Golf (see below). Spa treatments can also be reserved at their world class spa.

You can rent boats, windsurfers and kayaks.

Adventure sports and other activities: The mountainous terrain and beautiful beaches provide the perfect backdrop for horseback riding, mountain biking and hiking.
We will direct you to some terrific guides who can help share the island with you and create a perfect workout as well!
One of our favorite activities is hiking to plantation ruins. Our kids like to figure out the function of each building they discover.
Climb to the top of Mount Nevis! This is not for the faint of heart and a guide is recommended. This is a stunning hike and the view from the top is well worth the effort!
We love Nevis! We were lucky enough to find this paradise 18 years ago, when our parents bought property nearby. We bought the house next door to them. They live there in the winter and love to help our guests find out of the way treasures.
Lara Patriquin purchased this villa in 2007
Lazy Turtle is one of the only beachfront properties on island. We love the feeling of privacy we get from this house. In addition, we really feel connected to nature there.
Lazy Turtle is the perfect combination of privacy and natural beauty. In addition, we strive to make your vacation unique and stress free. Come fall in love!
We spent 1 week in paradise at the Lazy Turtle, celebrating our 30 year wedding anniversary, and my husbands birthday. The house was just as Jane and Lara explained, beautiful and secluded, but close enough to the things we wanted to do. We followed Janes advice and rented a car, which allowed us to explore the island. Had a great time at Sunshines, Bananas, golden Rock, The Lime, Cafe de Arts, and barbecue on the beach at Nisbet Plantation. Went deep sea fishing and caught a Wahoo we were able to cook back at the house. The pool was great, and the short walk to the beach through the yard was lovely. Ventured out to Lovers beach, which we had completely to ourselves. Waves were bigger, very fun, definitely not for weak swimmers or children. Also recommend an island tour-we learned a lot about the island and figured out where we wanted to go back. Would definitely go back.
My husband and I, along with our 2 young adult children, enjoyed our second visit to Lazy Turtle. This time we stayed for 2 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed the Christmas holiday on Nevis. The owner provided a lot of information on things to do and their parents, Ron and Jane, were the perfect hosts. They arranged for our transport from the airport and had the car rental delivered to the house. They truly want to make sure you have a good visit and are available to assist with contacts to arrange outings on the island. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. We loved lounging out on the large screen porch reading and listening to the tree frogs at night. We really love going to the various plantations around the island that are now beautiful hotel resorts to have lunch or dinner. We particularly like Golden Rock and Montpelier. Next door, is Nisbet Plantation, with whom the owners have an arrangement that their guests can open a tab at the plantation, that allowed us to eat over at the beach bar and restaurant. There is a steel drum band that plays for Sunday lunch at Nisbet and the Thursday night dinner and dancing on the beach is a lot of fun. We also enjoyed the other restaurants such as Lime, Sunshines, Gallipot and Bananas. Jane and Ron gave us a personal guided hike to an old plantation site and provided information about other hiking opportunities. On the advice of the owners,we also went zip lining on St. Kitts, which was a blast. While there we also visited Caribelle Batik and the Brimstone Hill Fortress. All in all, it was a wonderful vacation with plenty of time just relaxing by the pool and swimming in the beautiful ocean, as well as, adventuring around the island. We wish we could visit every year and hope to return soon.
My husband and I visited Nevis for the first time five years ago, and we loved our stay at the Lazy Turtle. What a perfect location! The beach front and private pool make this cottage really special. The huge screened porch brings the beauty of the tropical foliage, palm trees, and sea views right into the cottage, and ocean breezes bring rest and relaxation as soon as you arrive. Jane is the warmest owner/host we've ever met, and she has everything prepared to make your stay perfect--from your arrival at the airport, to the cottage, and back to the airport on departure. She goes beyond "concierge," and truly treats her guests as family and friends. We got oriented to Nevis with an island tour from Marlon Brando, who also rents vehicles, and we learned of a local place to buy fish as well as fresh produce. We only cooked in the cottage one night, because Nevis has SO many fabulous dining choices, but our dinner was delicious--grilled snapper with a tomato-cucumber salsa. Being next door to Nisbet Plantation is ideal, as you simply set up an account with them and can pop over for lunch or beach front drinks anytime. Definitely go to the Thursday night beach BBQ at Nisbet--live music, dancing, and incredible food, including five types of seafood on the grill. They also serve great breakfasts, which we did once, then we bought breakfast foods at the grocery to last for the week. Our favorite lunch place is Golden Rock Inn---go for the lobster salad, and take your camera for incredible photos of the lush grounds. Another highlight is Bananas---worth it for lunch and again for dinner. Nevis is a lovely little island with an "old Caribbean" feel, and staying at the Lazy Turtle instead of in a hotel lets you enjoy being an islander, if only for a while. We hope to return to Lazy Turtle for another wonderful week. If you go to Nevis, this is the place to stay~enjoy!
We had a wonderful 2 week stay at the Lazy Turtle! The house was clean and well maintained...lots of beach towels which was very helpful. The first week my sister in law was with us and we loved the fact that the bedrooms were more private since they were on opposite sides of the house. We spent much of our time at the house in the great screened in porch in the hammocks or floating in the pool. The only decisions we had to make were whether to go to the beach or the pool first. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms are beautifully remodeled and with the river rock details that made you feel like you were at an extension of the beach. We did use the air conditioning in the main bedroom a few nights since the trade winds were not cooperating, but fans on the porch were all we needed most times. Having a gas BBQ option was great option and we were able to get chicken, shrimp and pork at the market. We were there for the Nevis celebration, so we got to go to several local activities including a beach BBQ a few yards down from the house, a BBQ in town and a parade through town that was colorful and entertaining! The parade started on island time...2 hours late, but the antics before were almost as much fun as the parade itself! The people were friendly and helpful. You are able to walk around and no one is bothering you to buy things and following you around like other islands. Taxi drivers may ask if you need a ride, but are quick to offer directions if you say you have a car.
The owners called to check in to make sure everything was going well and offered many great suggestions on where to go for supplies, good restaurants, and fun activities.
A great low key, relaxing way of life and a wonderful house to enjoy it from.
This was our second stay at Lazy Turtle and it was just as great as the first time. Lara and Jane have created a paradise in this rental home. The description does not accurately describe how great this home is to rent. They have provided everything that you need to feel like you are staying in the Four Seasons but with the privacy of your own pool and beach. The property is taken care of a gardener, pool man and a housekeeper who respect your privacy but keep the property immaculate. The addition of the air conditioner was nice when the bedroom became too hot one night but the rest of the house remains cools with the ocean breezes. The view of the ocean from the house is perfect. Bonnie does a great job of meeting you at the house and giving you house and island information. She is available 24 hours a day and is always very helpful. There are alot of great restaurants and things to do on the island. Marlon Locke, who we rented a car from, gives a great island tour. We advise taking the tour early in your stay so you can go back to the places and spend more time checking them out. Some of the great restaurants we ate at were Lime Cafe, Cafe des Arts, Coconut Grove and Montpelier Planatation Inn. The entertainment at Lime Cafe on Friday night is excellent so don't miss it. We would also recommend OMG which serves the best ice cream - make sure to ask for the special creations. We actually didn't have a bad meal at any of the restaurants. We really enjoyed the Nevisian Heritage Village and just exploring the island. Everyone is very helpful and friendly on the island so take the time to visit with the local people. I would recommend this property to everyone and anyone. We have stayed at other Home Away properties and we think this one is the best. Take our advice and don't pass up this property or you will regret it!
Just a quick message to all of you that may be interested in the Lazy Turtle....stay away because we want it all to ourselves! The house was perfect for the two of us 4 still would have been comfortable. But the location and the privacy was amazing! Jane and Marlon took exceptional care of us. Our wedding was perfect. Thank you so much Jane! We will be back and next time we may just stay on the island and never return!
Enjoy the privacy of a beachside villa with the convenience of resort living. We will greet you at the airport _ either in Nevis or St. Kitts _ and a rental car will await you at the villa, should you desire one. Start a tab at the neighboring Nisbet Plantation beach club for award winning meals and beach side drinks. Meals can also be prepared in your fully equipped kitchen.
This is one of few beachfront properties with a pool. It is located on the most desirable part of the island, convenient to the many places Nevis has to explore; hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, biking, golf and tennis and some of the best food in the carribean.
We have been exploring Nevis for over 15 years and would be delighted to share our experiences with you
Golf: The Robert Trent Jones II course at the Four Season Resort is world famous and a short drive away.
The course provides a dramatic view of the Resort, the Caribbean and the neighboring island of St. Kitts.
