Paradise Estate Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

This custom-built home is set on over an acre of land and boasts a replica Nevisian sugarmill as the entrance foyer. The home has a wonderful ambiance - balancing modern furnishings with wonderful antiques.

The garden offer a huge array of tropical fruit trees including 2 different types of mango trees, limes, avocado, soursop (also known as graviola), sugar apple and ortanique.

The master bedroom is very large, has air conditioning and opens onto the verandah and pool deck. A 37' tv with Roku is located in the bedroom with a Roku box - offering a huge array of programs on Netflix and Amazon Prime. The en-suite bathroom features an open shower, twin sinks and a large (2 person) jacuzzi.

The second bedroom is spacious, with air conditioning and a private balcony with ocean views. The en-suite bathroom offers a very large shower.

The kitchen is well-equiped kitchen with all amenities and appliances (including coffee maker, food processor, liquidizer, slow cooker, Kitchen Aid mixer) - but you may have more fun dining out rather than cooking on vacation! The breakfast bar has plenty of room so the chef / bartender is not alone when prepping in the kitchen .

The sitting room is a great place to hang out by day or night and the TV is an impressive 55' LED/LCD with cable and Apple TV.

Outside areas of the property include the dining table on the pool deck, the deck area with sunloungers, and the cocktail terrace for sunset drinks and breathtaking views.

The owner is a keen gardener and you may be able to harvest any of the following during your stay - depending on the season/ ripeness: heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, canteloupe, pole beans, peppers, kale, eggplant etc etc.

The home is located in a prestigious estate and is conveniently located to the best beaches on the island and numerous bars and restaurants. The world-renowned Four Seasons Resort is just up the road and offers a very beautiful and challenging golf course, numerous tennis courts and a fabulous spa.

About Gigi Duncan

We are a married couple, Gigi and Charlie, that are lucky enough to call Nevis home year-round with several businesses to keep us busy. Charlie was born in St Kitts (the neighbouring island) when his parents were working at the Sugar Factory... some moons ago! We love this island and all that it offers and look forward to welcoming you to this very special place.

Why Gigi Duncan chose Paradise Estate

'Moonbeam' is a wonderful home and a superlative vacation rental due to it's location, design, amenities, style and comfort. You won't be disappointed!!

Great way to stay on Nevis

  • 4 of 5

Talk about the personal touch... This is the opposite of impersonal resorts and run-of-the-mill condos and time shares. This is a real house with use of the Duncan's stuff. Gigi and Charlie moved out while we where there. The description on VRBO is quite accurate. Nice ocean view from upland a bit and in a neighborhood.

And personal service, too. Gigi picked us up at the airport and gave pointers on where to eat and what to do all the way to her place. Full explanation on how to work everything in the house -- so much that we couldn't remember it all. When we couldn't get doors and the safe to cooperate, she or Charlie were there in minutes. They even left us a local burner phone to use while on the island! Also got a rental car delivered to the house (you'll need that). Excellent advice on restaurants, the ferry system, what to see, etc. And if we had any trouble anywhere on the island she would help. They've been on Nevis for 20 or 30 years and nearly everyone we met on the island knew them. So we really had an entry to the island.

I took one star off 'cause there were a few rough edges. Some windows were broken (not the glass -- sashes just didn't stay open without a prop), some doors didn't work right, and there were missing screens on the doors. I got bug bit quite a bit on the first night or two but there were plenty of bug sprays at the house. I tried several until I found one that worked well and now I know a new brand that I wouldn't have discovered... I'll be getting some of that, myself. I know the Duncans are getting new screens to address this. Oh, and Nevis didn't cooperate with our schedule and the wind blew like and angry witch for nearly the whole time we were there.. Not the Duncan's fault, though, and the wind was blowing throughout most the Caribbean at the time. The house was also quite dark and no good reading lights. There are extra bulbs to be found, though. You can't get air conditioning in the living room/kitchen area but you really do get used to the "island way" of leaving everything open and letting the breeze do the work. AC in the master is strong but noisy.

My wife and I truly relaxed and enjoyed having "our own house" while there, though. It was fun just discovering all the utensils and things to use in the house. Soap for the dishwasher, soap for the cloths washer, the bug sprays, books to read, DVDs to watch, etc. Totally clean except for some bugs in the windows. Pool is for plunging.

Would stay here again

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa for 1 week in February with 2 couples and had a great time. The house was clean and all the pictures were accurate. Kitchen had everything you needed if you choose to stay in and cook. Bathrooms were big and clean. Very centrally located but a car is required. The owner Gigi was very helpful with any questions. Enjoyed the outdoor dining area, rooftop deck and pool in the evenings. Very quite and private outdoor areas. Would recommend this villa and would stay here again should our travels take us back to Nevis.

Absolutely delighted

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Moonbeam Villa. It was exactly as described and looked in the photos. The villa has a great feeling - warm and friendly like its owner. It is tastefully decorated. We had welcome pack of food with not just a few beers but a crate plus a well stocked bar!

Gigi, the owner, was amazing and couldn't do enough for us - picked us up from the ferry, organised car hire, telephone to use whilst on Nevis, sorted out our water taxi back to the airport.

All in all a great experience and a lovely family holiday. Thank you so much.

Concierge Level Service from Owner

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property, very well maintained. The large outdoor space is particularly pleasant. The photos and description are accurate. The owner, Gigi, goes all out to make your stay perfect. She offered to arrange a water taxi, but we preferred the ferry. She met us at the ferry and drove us to the house where the rental car she arranged was brought to us. We had been to Nevis a few times so we did not need suggestions on activities and restaurants, but she would gladly have assisted us. She took us back to the ferry upon departure. Being a local she was allowed to drive right up to the boat. She handled everything there.

We enjoyed the whole experience. You do need a rental car, but you are very close to lots of restaurants and activities. The only downside it that is is pretty dark at night. Lighting is not great. I think this is common though because we had the same experience in our St Kitts villa. Apparently electric is outrageously expensive.

Lovely!!

  • 5 of 5

The reality of our visit to Nevis and our stay at Moonbeam far surpassed any expectations we had prior to arrival. It truly was the vacation of a lifetime. We were traveling with our two teenage children and everyone had a fantastic time.

The photos from our vacation can't touch the beauty of the island or Moonbeam. To sit on our deck with a rum punch after a dip in the pool before taking a shower al fresco was just perfect. The house is comfortable, it has a perfectly stocked kitchen, lovely areas for entertaining or playing games and the sunset views were spectacular.

Duncan and Gigi provided us with all the information and services we would need. They set up our water taxi, rental car, suggested beaches, restaurants, activities and much much more. The locals were welcoming and courteous and navigating the island was much easier than we anticipated.

I really cannot express enough what a fabulous time we all had. We would definitely do this again!

The most special vacation a person could have!

  • 5 of 5

I have to say straightaway that our month-long stay in Nevis, West Indies was absolutely the best vacation I've ever had. And not a small part of it I owe to Charlie and Gigi Duncan for allowing us to rent their gorgeous home, Moonbeam. Charlie and Gigi are fantastic hosts and longtime Nevis residents and their tips and pointers were spot-on. Also, they are both just delightful to be around, and I felt as if I'd known them forever!

As for the property -- the photos don't (and can't) do it justice. For one thing -- the view. There just aren't words to describe it. And, the house itself. My goodness. It is lovely, comfortable, beautifully appointed with every convenience. Perfect place for entertaining! The stunning patio and the roof deck are just phenomenal. I just cannot say enough about this property. If you are looking for elegant relaxation -- this is the place for you!
