About the property

2BR, 2 full baths, sleeps 4

FREE OF CHARGE-IF YOU ARRIVE IN ST KITTS or NEVIS we will meet you at the airport and transport you to Coral Reef Villa. Coral Reef Villa is situated near our own white coral sand beach with almost two acres of palms and flowering shrubs. It is in the best location on Nevis, near fabulous reefs and within walking distance of Nisbet Plantation Beach Club with their excellent restaurants and more casual beach bar, for breakfast or lunch. Coral Reef Villa is built in the traditional Caribbean style with vaulted ceilings and trimmed in solid mahogany . The delightfully appointed home is the newest and best-equipped villa in the area. It's situated on property that goes right to the sea. You can sit around the large pool or on the huge screened in porch with 2 hammocks , comfortable lounge chairs, large dining area and watch the waves curling on the reefs. The large kitchen has all appliances and dishwasher. Wi-Fi, washer, dryer, generator. A caretaker will greet/assist you

Enjoy bananas, oranges, lemons, avocados, papayas, and your own coconuts grown on the property.

From the spacious screened-in verandah you'll have an unobstructed view of the ocean and its nearby coral reef, while dining or relaxing on cushioned chaises lounges or in comfortable wicker chairs. Outside, two hammocks strung between palm trees provide a restful shady place to read or snooze -- close to the 12 x 30 foot freshwater private swimming pool. The pool is purified with a conditioning system that uses very little chlorine.

The large modern kitchen is fully equipped including a dishwasher, a four-burner stove top, a self-cleaning oven, a microwave, and a large refrigerator-freezer with ice maker. Everything is here for you to cook a gourmet meal should you decide to eat in.

There is a propane gas grill on the back patio. The laundry room has a Maytag washer and dryer. However, daily maid service is included in the rental rate, so you can just relax.

Additional amenities include cable TV, a VCR, a DVD player, a CD stereo radio (with many videos, DVDs and CDs for all), and a state-of-the-art generator with an easy in-house start. All bedding and towels are provided.

When the day is done, you can sleep in the villa's two large bedrooms -- each with its own bath. Both have exquisitely handmade Nevisian mahogany beds. One bedroom has a king-size four-poster, while the other has twin beds which can be converted into a king-size bed. The bedrooms are privately located at either end of the villa and through mahogany double doors. Both bedrooms enjoy the same fantastic view of the ocean, gently swaying palm trees, and evening stars.

Hospitality comes first in Nevis, and especially at Coral Reef. If you desire, Coral Reef's owner will arrange for you to be met when you arrive, and to be given an orientation to the island and the villa.

This villa is ideal for a romantic honeymoon, a fun vacation for two couples, or for parents with one or two older children.

Come stay at Coral Reef Villa. Enjoy the magical symphony of tree frogs, waves, and coconut palm fronds rustling with the tradewinds. Without a doubt, it will be your best vacation ever!

I am a retired French teacher who was born and spent most of my

childhood years in Montreal, Canada except for 5 years in Orange Park,

Florida where my father was a psychologist at the Yerkes chimpanzee

lab and a year on scholarship at a university in Neuchatel,

Switzerland. When I returned to Montreal I met my husband (on a blind

date ) at McGill University where I was an undergrad student and my

husband was a medical student. When we graduated he returned to Penna,

his home state, for his internship. After that his residency training

took us to Texas, Maryland, London, England and Wisconsin. During this

time we had two sons and later adopted a daughter and took in foster

daughters whom we wanted to adopt but the mothers just wanted to hold

on to them loosely. We also took in exchange students and a family

from Vietnam for 6 months. In 1989 my husband’s friend, from undergrad

years at Gettysburg College, purchased Nisbet Plantation on Nevis and

we started buying land next door. We ended up with 4 acres on the

ocean and now that we are retired we live in our own villa and rent

CORAL REEF VILLA. I feel so blessed.

JANE PAUL purchased this villa in 2000

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent accomdation, wonderful vacation

Date of Stay: April 2008

WOW, what a fantastic time we had at Coral Reef. From the pool, to the screened in veranda, to the well set up kitchen, we had the best of everything. What really made our vacation memorable was the people on Nevis. Warm, kind, and trusting come to mind. Everywhere we went people were so kind. We loved driving around waiting for goats to walk across the road. Nobody in a big hurry. The beach front was very private, quiet and you can walk along the shoreline for miles, and the snorkelling was amazing. We will come back,

hopefully for many years to come. My wife and myself have found a very special place and would not change a thing. Thanks Jane and Ron for sharing the Coral Reef with us. Also Jeannette the daily maid service and Henry the groundskeeper what wonderful people.

Recommended for: Romantic Getaway

Owners Response: Thanks so much for the wonderful review. When you return again in April you will be able to enjoy two new snorkeling areas nearby and

some fabulous ruins that we hadn't explored before. I found quite a few 300 or more year old broken clay pipes, with some pipe bowls in good shape with the makers initials on them, at one of the many very old forts on the island. We explored early indian sites with an archeologist from the USA and a Clemson trained biologist and found pottery shards dating back to the time of Christ. Probably the indians came from the Orinoco River in Venezuela and were descended from stone age people. Their polishing stones are lovely.

Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time to Nevis, but first time staying at the Coral Reef Villa. It's everything in the description and more. It's very open with a nice breeze and the view to the ocean is amazing. Just a short walk to the beach, which never seems to be crowded. We also enjoy having access to the beach restaurant and bar right next door at the Nisbet Plantation. Not the best place for small children, but perfect for adults. Jane Paul goes out of her way to make sure your vacation is as enjoyable as possible. Highly recommended!

Excellent all round as usual.

  • 5 of 5

Our third time at Coral Reef and each year has been excellent - from the arrangements to be met at St Kitts and transported to the Villa to advice on new restaurants and hikes, to immediate response to any (small) problems, to arranging fro transport back to Kitts.

Jane and Ron are first class hosts. We would be going back again next year but our preferred time period is already booked so we will go to the villa next door instead.

Amazing trip - both the villa and Nevis

  • 5 of 5

Let me start with the villa - it is even more beautiful in person. From the second we drove up, we were in awe. The grounds / property are beautiful, it's West Indies style architecture and design details, beautiful wood, vaulted ceilings. But even more important, it's SO clean

The space is very open & large - with an inside living room, dining room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, laundry room. Then there is the outside space - a massive screened-in porch, pool & lounge area out front (looking out to the ocean), and a patio out back with a table and grill.

The kitchen is fully equipped. It's fun to grab groceries at the many local stores and fruit from vendors along the road. Jane also recommended a local deep sea fishing charter - we went out one morning and caught multiple mahi mahi. So fresh and delicious on the grill.

On to the location - the villa itself is literally next to Nisbet Plantation. So, you almost feel like you're staying there, but better! There are also other villas next to you - but not too close - so you always feels very safe. (Along those lines - the villa itself locks up nicely - there are strong wood doors and windows. There is no reason to ever feel unsafe.)

Nevis is a magical island - it is not overly developed, clean, and still has so much local culture. There is a lot to do (hiking, boating, snorkeling/diving, historical sites. beaches) and amazing restaurants.

Jane is an amazing host - we were lucky to be there in the winter when she's on the island. But either way, she is so intent that everyone who visits has an amazing vacation. From the second you book the villa, she will send you so much information to make your planning a snap. And she arranges the inbound transport from St Kitts to Nevis with Daisy, Wincent and Marlon. (Marlon also rents cars - suggest organizing one ahead of time.)

We were so sad to leave Nevis and this villa. We don't repeat vacation spots much, but we are already discussing when we return. We wouldn't stay anyplace else if/when we return to Nevis!!! We are discerning travelers & we have traveled all over the world. This place is up there as one of our favorites on a tropical island. Enjoy!!

The best

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at Coral Reef. This says a lot as we travel often and have a bucket list a mile long. First time we have gone back to the same place and we already booked for next year. The house is so comfortable, the views amazing and the care and concern from the owner and her staff, nothing but first class.

It all started when my husband was rewarded with a sabbatica at work. We have small children that love the beach so tropical was the obvious choice. We luckliy stumbled upon the beautiful island of Nevis. A tiny volcanic island with beautiful beaches and rainforest. We looked at the resort options which were beautiful but we really wanted something just for our family to spend time together where we could cook meals together and come and go as we pleased. Then we found the Coral Reef Villa. The reviews were all fabulous and the pictures looked like paradise. We contacted the owner Jane and inquired about renting the house for 2 weeks in June. After speaking with Jane we knew it was exactly where we wanted to be. Jane was so amazing and helpful throughout rental process and with all the many questions we had before we arrived in Nevis. On our arrival in St Kitts Jane arranged for our transport over to the house which saved a lot of money. She recommended renting a car from Marlon which we did. The rental car was perfect and Marlon was great. Jane also arranged for Marlon to give us a private tour of the island and show us what the island has to offer. This was a fabulous gift and was so informative. We couldn't believe how beautiful the house was when we arrived. My favorite place in the entire house was the huge screened in porch. We spent most of our time there when we were home. We ate all of our meals there together which was awesome. The 2 hammocks on the porch were my favorite places to nap. The pool was perfect and refreshing. The gardens surrounding the house were so colorful. There was no air conditioner in the house which I was afraid would be a problem, but with the open air floor plan and fans we felt a constant ocean breeze. we had our own private walk to the beach. bring water shoes!!Just to the right of the house was a man made reef where we spent a lot of time snorkeling. We saw beautiful fish, crabs and lobsters. our favorite thing to do at night was crab hunting in front of the house. The kids loved it and the Crabs were huge. Jane has an agreement with the resort Nisbet Plantation next door, so we were able to keep an open tab at the beach bar and restuarant which were awesome. We bought groceries and cooked most of our meals and saved money. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook a meal. The housekeeper Jeanine arrived every morning to clean and change sheets which was a real treat. A true vacation in Paradise!

An idyllic getaway location

  • 5 of 5

Coral Reef Vllla surpassed my expectations. The photos didn't do justice to the reality. The living/dining area was amply large, the bedrooms and baths were comfortable with access to the porch from each bedroom. The kitchen was a nice size with all appliances in excellent condition. (Refrigerator includes an ice maker- such a bonus after very small ice trays in other rentals). The most wonderful feature is the screened porch from which you can see the surf breaking. The pool is a few steps down and we made very good use of that. The property is quite extensive and well maintained, so as well as a large front area, there is an equally big back yard in which we played a few rousing games of croquet.

Perhaps the most astonishing part of our two week stay was the attention and generosity of our landlords Jane and Ron Paul. Not only did they arrange and pay for our arrival from St Kitts, but gave us a tour of the island which gave us a good idea of its geography and those things we would like to do during our stay. They were most attentive to our needs and enjoyment providing other much appreciated little gifts and hints. I should also point out that although the villa is right next to Nesbit Plantation it was mostly quiet and very private.

As an older woman, I was not particularly interested in the beach, but it is a very short walk and my son and his wife enjoyed it a good deal. My vacation was all I'd hoped, relaxing and delightful.

Car: recommended

Nisbet Beach area is away from the hustle and bustle of any town and it's always with a happy feeling of homecoming to return to our special spectacular ocean views and refreshing breeze. The trade wind breezes are a special blessing in the Caribbean where they almost constantly blow and have a cooling effect which off sets the average temperature in Nevis which is usually in the low to mid 80's. The trade winds keep the palm fronds rustling and swaying and are a soothing feature, especially on our side of Nevis which is in the perfect location to get the maximum benefit from the trade winds coming from the North East. No need for anything other than quality ceiling fans and a dip in the pool or sea where the temperature stays about 82 degrees.
