Delightful one-room cottage (bathroom with shower) has full cooking facilities
- english, french, spanish
Tim and I bought this home to use for vacations, family gatherings, and eventually for retirement. People who have stayed at many rental homes in the Caribbean describe ours as one of the best equipped they've seen. That's because we spend quite a lot of time there ourselves. We designed the kitchen so that more than one person has convenient space to work together, because we like to cook in teams when a large family group gathers. Every room in the light, airy house has delightful views. We designed the swimming pool with broad, shallow steps to make it user-friendly for parents playing in the water with young children. With a separate cottage, close by but entirely separate and invisible from the house, a larger group of 8-12 can fit in, so it's a great place for an extended family get-together. With that many guests, some wouldn't have their own bathrooms or private bedrooms, since they'd be using sofa beds. The maid comes every 2-3 days.

Why Linda chose Saint John Figtree Parish
Nevis is a small island, popular with those who seek a comparatively undeveloped tropical island to enjoy nature, hiking, the rainforest, and the wonderful views. Hiking in the rainforest is a popular activity. Guides are available to take adventurous hikers to the top of the volcano. Horseback riding and biking are available, and deep sea-fishing, sailing, scuba, windsurfing, and snorkeling are popular activities. And there are art galleries and 2 museums. Information about activities and restaurants is waiting for you in our guest information binder.

Relaxing week of warm sunshine
This cottage is surrounded by a lovely, thoughtfully designed garden in an exceptionally quiet, private location. The gardener, security and property manager
Adolpho all went to great lengths to ensure we had an enjoyable stay.
Very quiet and secluded with your own beach. Beautiful property.
Beautiful gardens, birds and calm seas await you. If you want a remote get-away to recharge, Black Sand Cove is absolutely perfect. A dedicated property manager, nighttime security guard and a gardener are discreetly available to meet your needs and ensure you are not too alone.
We enjoyed exploring the island and connecting with genuinely kind people we met. We hope to return soon!
Great quiet location. Awesome porch.
We had a great trip. Adolfo coordinated getting us from the airport on St. Kitts over to Nevis and had our rental car waiting for us. Reduced the stress of traveling.
As far as the property it is beautifully manicured. We were there during the dry season and it still looked great. Would love to see it after more rain. The road to the property is a bit on the rough side Make sure you get at least a small SUV as your rental. Also for Nevis in general you will want to make sure you have a rental so you can get around the island.
Again a wonderful location, great help from Aldolfo and we highly recommend a stay here.
Great place to stay. Beautiful, peaceful, and even better than the pictures.
The property at Black Sand Cove was amazing. The gardens were surprisingly well done and there was close access to the black sand beach. The beach was great to look at and hang out on, but the rocks were a little rough for swimming. This was not much of a problem though because there is plenty of public beach space on Nevis that is great for swimming and still feels relatively private. Also there are goats, donkeys, and monkies that wander the island, outside of the property, that significantly add to the island’s unique charm. It was great place to get away from everything for a bit; I definitely recommend it.
A wonderful spot to relax
Beautiful, safe, and quite. Transportation to and from ferry was added bonus. Kitchen needs some refreshing. Beach was beautiful to view, but not ideal for swimming/lounging. Car rental a must. View from front porch could be improved with a little trimming in the garden. Overall, a wonderful place to stay and relax.
Nevis is a small island, quite undeveloped for the Caribbean, and off the beaten track. Nature, hiking, enjoying the rain forest and the fabulous views: these are popular activities along with swimming, snorkeling, scuba, strolling on beaches, and watching the sea and the clouds. There are lots of great restaurants, but for casinos, nightlife, and shopping, better choose a different island! For peaceful enjoyment of nature, we recommend Nevis as tops!
Other Activities: rain forest hikes, bird-watching
