Great stay at Round Hill Cottage

Round Hill Cottage was our home away from home for our first visit to Nevis. We got connected to Round HIll Cottage through friends who have visited Nevis many many times. It was everything they had described and more. The cottage is in a lovely setting overlooking Oualie Beach, offering breathtaking views of the sea and nearby St. Kitts. We have not stayed at a more private and picturesque location in any of our visits to the Caribbean. The doors connecting the cottage to the screened in porch fold open to allow great ocean breezes and a remarkable view from any place in the cottage or on the porch. Though we wanted to explore the island because this was our first visit, we could have spent hours just relaxing on the enclosed screened porch just watching the sea and the ships and the passing clouds. The place is simply but carefully furnished with a full kitchen and modern appliances and is tastefully decorated with white walls, louvered window openings, and a white ceramic tile floor. The place was spotless when we arrived after being picked up at the ferry dock by Paula, one of the owners, who also gave us a tour of much of the west side of the island on the way to the property.
The other huge plus for our stay was our welcome from Paula and Lynn, the owners of the property on which the cottage is located. Their villa is located close to the cottage, and they are close by if anything is needed, but the location of the cottage provides complete privacy, and we were left alone unless we had questions. Paula and Lynn were two of the most gracious hosts we have ever had at either a cottage or villa rental or bed and breakfast.
The cottage is also ideally located for exploring the island, close to great beaches like Lover's Beach, Oualie Beach, Pinney Beach, and the beach at Nisbet Plantation. Because of its proximity to these great beaches, it is also close to many of the best restaurants on the island of Nevis. Paula and Lynn provide a guest book with suggestions for restaurants and activities. We did a great deal of research before our visit, but a most of what we needed to know about excursions, points of interest, shopping, beaches, and other activities could be found in the guest book.
Another plus to the cottage's location is its proximity to Oualie Beach which offers snorkeling trips, kayak and bike rentals, and a nearby beach to just relax and hang out.
Round Hill Cottage was a great find and highly recommended to our friends.
