Nevis Palm villa's prime beach front location, which enjoys uninterrupted views of the Caribbean Sea, is only one reason why people return to this spacious and comfortable villa year after year.
A short 200-yard stroll will take you to the beautiful, unspoiled, white coral, sand beach -- with the beach bar of Nisbet Plantation Beach Club located conveniently nearby. Nisbet's Great House restaurant, renowned internationally for its cuisine, is a short walk away. Guests at Nevis Palm can take advantage of the dining opportunities at the hotel, whilst enjoying the space and privacy of their own villa -- complete with a child-safe swimming pool.
Nevis Palm is built in traditional Caribbean style, with high rafted ceilings and ceiling fans in all rooms to supplement the cooling sea breezes. Flexible accommodation for up to eight people is provided with two king bedrooms -- one with a four-poster bed -- and two twin bedrooms. All bedrooms have their own private en-suite bathroom.
The villa is stylishly furnished, and features a fully screened porch in which to laze away the balmy evenings, or to dine 'outside' in comfort.
A daily maid service is included in the rental rates. There is a safe for your valuables.
Whether you envision a romantic holiday for two, or a fun-filled vacation for two families, Nevis Palm will provide the perfect setting.
We usually stay in a hotel on Nevis; this time we went with this house and it lived up to all our expectations. It is extremely livable. If you are like us, you will spend a lot of time on the screened porch which is several degrees cooler than the house (except for the bedrooms with AC) and is just built for total relaxation. There is plenty of furniture on the porch including a table and chairs for meals (there is also a large dining table inside the house) and you are just steps from the pool. The pool is small but perfect for cooling off in and features several lounge chairs. You can see and hear the ocean from the porch; prepare to nod off blissfully.
The beach is very broad and usually has a nice breeze. Since it is on the "Atlantic" side, there are waves. Even so, a very short walk takes you to areas with more "sedate" water. As others have noted, you can set up a tab with Nisbet making it very easy to get drinks, lunch, etc.
Inside the house, the fridge is newish and features door dispensed ice. The kitchen has all the utensils and silverware you will need. The stove is gas. Unlike some places on Nevis, here, we never ran out of hot water during showers. And, you get housekeeping service 5 days a week and she does an excellent job! You also have the benefit of a proper manager should any issues arise. When our AC had a problem, she got it fixed for us promptly.
All in all, we would definitely recommend Nevis Palm and would definitely stay there again!
We were concerned that the house wouldn't live up to expectations but we needn't have worried. The location and layout were just as described. We could walk to the beach and the great beach bar/restaurant at Nisbet. Jeanette kept the house immaculately clean for us and the house manager Bonnie could not have been more helpful in making recommendations for us. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying here if you are looking for a relaxing holiday close to the sea within close proximity of all the amenities that you might want for. Looking forward to going back in the future. For romantic dinner look no further than Golden Rock. For diving check out Scuba Safari/Dive Nevis. Try and hike to the source from golden rock. You won't be disappointed. We never managed the peak. Best rum punch - difficult to decide. They are all so good and different. Will have to return to test again.
Thanks for providing such a terrific villa and all of the logistical help to get there and to find our way around. These made it quite easy for us to enjoy the many wonderful things that Nevis has to offer. We hope to make it back one day and will certainly look into Nevis Palms again.
From the moment we arrived to the time we left we could find no fault with Nevis Palm. The description of the property was accurate. The house was very clean - swept and mopped daily. We were met by the house manager and familiarised with the house and island. She was available whenever we needed her and provided excellent tips on what to see and do on the island. Daily maid service made for a very relaxing vacation and left us to get on with enjoying the island. We enjoyed early morning walks along the beach towards Newcastle (going left) or towards Long Haul Bay (going right) and spent a lot of time swimming and snorkelling in front of the house. Having Nisbet Plantation Beach club "next door" was so convenient; we set up an account and thereafter were able to sign for drinks and lunches on the beach. There are lots of great restaurants and bars to sample and it's worth renting a car/jeep while there - this was pre-arranged by the owner. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nevis Palm - whether a party/family of 8 or as in our case a family of 5 - plenty of space and lots for everyone to do.
What a wonderful time we had at Nevis Palm. From the moment we got into our taxi outside St Kitts airport and were driven to a boat taxi just 15 minutes away ( both arranged through the owner) which whisked us over the bay to Nevis, we were entranced by the natural beauty and charm of this Caribbean jewel of an island. And waiting for us at our destination was the wonderful beach front villa, Nevis Palm. Lovely, light, spacious villa with a fabulous verandah where we ate breakfast, lunch and dinner overlooking the sea. My favourite spot is at the other end of the verandah where you can sit and relax watching the sea and the palm trees gently swaying in the cooling breeze. The beach is at the bottom of the garden and so swimming and snorkelling a mere stroll away. There are beautiful beach walks to both sides of the villa with more places to snorkel and we even caught a lobster for our supper! There is also a lovely pool with sun loungers on the decking, perfect for sunbathing and reading.
Inside, the villa is bright and clean with pretty bedrooms and good bathrooms (with showers) and a kitchen with bar overlooking the sitting room. There is also a dining area inside but I preferred to eat on the verandah.
We were very well looked after by Jeanette who comes to clean the villa daily, Monday to Friday, and also does washing in the adjoining laundry room.
The Nisbet Plantation Hotel is next door and has a great beach bar where you can also get lunch and there is an unmissable beach BBQ on Thursday evenings, with a band and dancing under the stars.
Other restaurants to enjoy are at Golden Rock, Montpelier, the Hermitage and at more casual places such as Sunshines, Double Deuce and Lime Bar all at one end of Pinneys Beach.
The interior of the island is lush and green with beautiful trees, plants and flowers. Go to the Botannical Gardens to see all the many types of palms and then walk in the forest tracking to the Source or up to Montravers an old plantation site.
Shopping is easy at Rams supermarket outside Charlestown but you can also stop at the roadside to buy fresh fruit and vegetables. There are also a few places to buy fresh fish - snapper, mahi-mahi or wahu. All delicious and so fresh.
I would recommend Nevis Palm as a perfect place to stay.
What a wonderful property, on a truly glorious island. The house is in the perfect location with direct access & views of the beach and right next to Nisbet Plantation Hotel (which means you can ask to have access to all the facilities, open an account at the start of your stay and pay on departure). The Nisbet beach bar is a 2 minute walk and is the perfect place to chill, have lunch and enjoy wonderful cocktails.
We hired a car (essential) so that we could visit restaurants and bars during the evening and different beaches during the day. All of them are within a very short drive, after all Nevis is exactly a big island.
The house itself is ideal, comfortable and clean (it comes with daily maid service, and a gardener and pool man visit as necessary). All of them are very cheerful and helpful.
The veranda is perfect with views of the sea, and it is a great place to sit for breakfast & dinner, playing cards etc and there are comfortable sofas and arm chairs if you just want to read a book or fall to sleep.
The pool is great for colling off, and offers a truly peaceful spot for sunbathing. The beach (which is as you would imagine a caribbean beach) takes about 30 seconds to walk to and offers fantastic bathing as well as snorkelling.
Overall I cannot fault Nevis Palm if you are looking for a place to just relax.
