HUMMINGBIRD HOUSE - LARGE LUXURY VILLA WITH SPECTACULAR VIEWS

Jessups Village area Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 4 Baths (Sleeps 6-7)

Located on the lower slopes of Mount Nevis, the property benefits from great views yet only 5 minutes drive from the beach. The house is set in arguably one of the nicest private gardens on the island. Lush tropical plants, palm trees and fruit trees with spectacular views 180 degrees across the Caribbean sea and St Kitts.

Extensive accommodation includes on the upper level 3 large bedrooms, all ensuite with imported Spanish marble tiles and jacuzzi baths. The large Great Room features a very well stocked kitchen and extensive seating area with entertainment centre inc Plasma and cable TV. To the rear is a screened verandah where one can relax overlooking the gardens and rain forest and watch the monkeys or hummingbirds!

The best feature of the property is the large screened front verandah with a seating area and dining table which can, if required, seat up to 12 adults. It offers spectacular views of the pool, garden and the Caribbean sea across to St Kitts.

On the lower level the owners have built a family games room which extends the width of the property. This features pool and air hockey tables and a settee which converts to a double bed capable of sleeping 2 people. Adjoining this room is a large ensuite wet room and wc ideal for washing off the sand after a day at the beach.

Hummingbird House is situated in a very small development with no passing traffic. The neighbours are friendly and local professionals.

The nearest beach is only a 5 minute drive away, accessed via either Jessups or Barnes Ghaut villages, whilst supermarkets, Charlestown and airport are only a 10 minute drive away.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Just wanted to drop a quick note to thank you so very much for letting us enjoy your home in Nevis.

Hummingbird House was wonderful and we fell in love with Nevis and the wonderful people who call it home.

The only draw back is that the time flew so quickly and there was so much more to see, do and enjoy! We never managed to get back to Double Deuces and Mark and Lyndy-so they will be on top of our list next trip. Hummingbird House is pure perfection...again wish we had spent more time there. That kitchen is certainly set up to cook and entertain.Had we not wanted to soak up every beach and garden we certainly could have idled time right there for the eight days. We did enjoy the pool in the evening and that view is incredible.

A NEVIS GEM

  • 5 of 5
The homeowners are very helpful & they will make excellent arrangements from start to finish for your memorable stay at Hummingbird House.
First impressions: breathtaking vistas; a spacious, well-equipped, beautifully-decorated home; helpful staff; starter food items provided; lovely pool; outstanding gardens with colours that surpass the Botanical Gardens!; peaceful, quiet, serene atmosphere; charming upscale neighbourhood; adorable monkeys visit the property; hummingbirds abound...in fact, a variety of birds; local supermarkets have all you need for in-home dining. A car is recommended. Driving is on the left. Lovely beaches and many dining options are not far away. The Four Seasons Resort is just down the hill.
Upon your return, you will never forget the beautiful view, the colourful garden, the impeccable assistance during your stay, and above all, the warm hospitality of the people of Nevis. The basis for our claims, you ask? We just spent 3 wonderful weeks here and we were truly sad to leave!

BEAUTIFUL, PRIVATE VILLA!

  • 5 of 5
This villa is exactly as depicted. It is beautiful, private, spacious and well-equipped. Richard and Claire were very responsive and helped us with the arrangements for a boat transfer from Statia, a rental car, and helpful advice for first time visitors to Nevis. Nevis is a wonderful island with many activities and beautiful beaches. It is a very low key island without a lot of hustle and bustle. The recommended restaurants and activities were excellent.

HUMMINGBIRD HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
This property is complete in every respect including all the appliances, kitchen tools, games, pool, staff and furnishings that you do not always find in rental properties. The most memorable aspect is the location on the lower slopes of Mt. Nevis with wonderful views and the most perfect climate and temp with clear air and lots of sunshine combined with plenty of showers to nurture the beautiful gardens. What more could one ask for???

RICHARD & CLAIRE. HUMMINGBIRD HOUSE. NEVIS. WARM. TRANQUIL. WONDERFUL. BEYOND EXPECTATION.

Richard & Claire. Hummingbird House. Nevis. Warm. Tranquil. Wonderful. Beyond Expectation.
  • 5 of 5
After my initial contact with Richard regarding spending a family Christmas Holiday at Hummingbird House-I knew I had made the perfect choice. From snafus with money wiring to changing dates and making arrangements for transports, water taxis and van rental, and planning activities for our stay-Richard and Claire were gracious, accommodating and knowledgeable. Every place recommended and every person we came in contact with because of them was delightful. The gardens, the monkeys and goats each morning in the back yard watching us, the pool at night, the incredible view from the front deck, breakfast in the front verandah, the early morning rains and double rainbows-pure perfection. Hummingbird House is clearly designed with enjoyment and entertaining in mind. The kitchen is pure joy for anyone who loves to cook. Meticulous care was put into every detail of this lovely home. The beds and linens, the furnishings, the artwork throughout the house, even the wide range of music CD's available-is truly a step above. Hummingbird House is not your average rental-it is clearly their second home. We consider ourselves amongst the fortunate who were able to spend our holiday-fleeting though it was-within its walls. Our biggest regret is that we spent so much time enjoying the beautiful beaches and island of Nevis that we truly did not get to enjoy the beauty and calm that you experience at the house. Let's just say there is a charmed life at Hummingbird House. I have been to many islands, but Nevis is one I will return to again. The peaceful, stress-free energy of this island and its people is different. I do hope that the development of land down by the beaches does not tarnish the true charm of this wonderful island. We happened by Double Dueces by the beach on Christmas day, which was actually closed to business due to a holiday party for family and friends. Mark and Lyndy, the owners graciously 'pulled us in' and provided us with fabulous food, drink and conversation. Only later did Mark learn that we were staying at Hummingbird House. It happens that Richard and Claire, are dear friends, who typically spent Christmas with them at this party. In Mark's words, he felt it was fitting that we should be celebrating with them in Claire and Richard's absence. That act of genuine kindness at the start of our holiday summed up an extraordinary stay. Do not hesitate to book a holiday or get away in this wonderful home. We plan to return as often as is possible.

BEST VILLA WE'VE RENTED IN THE CARIBBEAN!

Best Villa we've Rented in the Caribbean!
  • 5 of 5
LOCATION AND LAYOUT! Once a year we get 8 members of our family together in the Caribbean for relaxation and adventure. Hummingbird Villa easily accommodated us. It was clean and well organized.

The location was high enough on Mt. Nevis to allow a breeze to keep from getting too hot and to assure no mosquitoes which have been an issue when we have stayed at lower elevations on Nevis. Plus we had a terrific view of St. Kitts. The gardens were incredibly beautiful, a mini-botanical garden. Monkeys came down from the rainforests almost everyday between 9 and 10 a.m. to eat the flowers from nearby trees. When it rained, it was never for long and the sun would be out again.

The layout of the villa was the best feature. By having two screened-in verandas at either end, a fabulous breeze came through the house and I never did have a need to turn on the air conditioning which was available. When we'd leave for the day or afternoon and come back, we'd open all the windows back up with the fans on and both doors open and within 5 minutes, everything was comfortable again.

The beds were truly the beds that you'd put in your own home: comfortable, plenty of pillows, and clean. The rooms were decorated with hummingbird, palm trees and monkey themes which was carried out into the veranda furniture as well. A large table was on the veranda and we sat out there every night of 2 weeks talking, laughing, sharing and bonding.

The kitchen was stocked with everything we could possibly use, more so than other villas we have rented. There were enough serving plates, wine glasses and more to host a whole party. Everything worked, although the propane range took longer to cook on than what we were used to. There were two rows of spices, cookbooks, appliances and much more.

The whole feel of the house was of a home and Richard and Claire have tried hard to make it that way. Unlike a sparse rental home, this villa has everything. Instead of painted drywall, lovely tiles adorned the bathrooms; everything was nicer than basic accommodations.

The pool was the size as depicted and I swam almost every morning; albeit it can be cool right after a rain shower. Private.

We sailed with Miles Denne, ziplined on St. Kitts, drove ATV's with Funky Monkey Tours, visited Nisbet Beach (our favorite) and went to Chrishi's Beach & Bar 3x. Owners stayed in contact and made recommendations. We ate at Yachtsman Grill, Indian Summer, Bananas, Golden Rock, Galipots - all terrific.

Awesome!!!!
