Verandah is a Caribbean styled Villa which catches the cool breezes around the wide open balconies surrounding the living accommodation. The villa will sleep 2-8 people in air conditioned comfort. We regularly rent just the upper floor to individual couples who enjoy comfort and space.
Oualie Beach and Chrishi Beach are both only 3 minutes away, our villa is only 50ft above sea level, on the Caribbean Ocean side of the island. Close to the best beaches, the villa has a premium location in Nevis on a quiet private road with no passing traffic at all.
Villa Verandah is on 3/4 of an acre of spacious tropical garden with spectacular views from the balconies towards the sea and the island of St.Kitts. The villa has its own 30ft private swimming pool with palm trees and a waterfall, spacious designer furnished living room, huge exterior FULLY SCREENED lounge,(no Bugs!) where you can eat or relax in comfort, with your own bar, and a well equipped modern kitchen. The villa has 4 double bedrooms, and also a single bedroom annexed to the master bedroom (with a full size single bed), which is great for a child. We also have available an additional baby / toddlers cot. All bedrooms are individually Air Conditioned, the other rooms have large rotating ceiling fans to keep cool. We have two double bedrooms with king-size beds and their own en-suite bathroom/shower.
You will have cable TV, DVD and a sound system which relays music to the house and pool. Bring your laptop if you wish to collect your emails and stay in touch with the world with our wireless high speed internet access, and of course telephone.
Our comfortable villa is ideal for a family, two couples, or a group of friends who could share together. If you do not need all of the bedrooms, or are 'just two' who want to use the house on your own, ( the upper floor is perfect for a couple ), we will offer a discount. The villa is peaceful, quiet, private, and not overlooked. It is not on a 'complex' of other villas where the next house may be only 30ft away. Verandah stands on it own large plot of land on a small rise 3 minutes from the beach on the calm Caribbean Ocean side of Nevis. Padi Dive Scuba boat trips and Golf are nearby.
Villa Verandah is serviced by our maid Claudia , who visits twice a week, Ryan, who cleans the pool, and our gardener.
Nearby 'Manza's' store sells freshly grown organic fruit and vegetables and other provisions. Supermarkets and shops are in Charlestown about 6 minutes drive away. Golf is available at the 4 Seasons Hotel 18 hole Robert Trent designed golf course.
John,our agent from Coldwell Banker Realty in Nevis, will meet and greet you and take you to the villa. He is on hand to help in any way you need during your vacation.
If you fly in to St Kitts International airport (5 miles away) you can cross to Nevis on the ferry (30mins), or we can arrange a private water taxi transfer for you. You will need a car or Jeep to get around the island and we can help reserve this for the duration of your stay.
Nevis, one of the most original islands of the Caribbean, is next to the island of St.Kitts. Our small and tranquil island with its beautiful beaches and tropical forest rising up to the Nevis mountain peak, offers you a stress free vacation, with sunshine and cool breezes all year round.

Peter who is a professional travel photographer and Nicola who teaches art and ceramics and their daughter Dominique love spending time in the warmth of the Caribbean. They travel extensively but always enjoy returning to Nevis for it's beauty, tranquility and friendly people. We first visited to Nevis in 1998 whilst on a photographic shoot, and fell in love with island. Last summer Nicola created some colorful Caribbean cards which are on sale here at the art galleries and hotels. It is always a joy to spend time relaxing on this lovely island.
Peter & Nikki purchased this villa in 2004
We first visited Nevis when Peter was on a photographic shoot in the Caribbean, and we loved the island so much that after several vacations here we bought our villa in 2004. The Villa had been designed and built by the owner of the Botanical Gardens in Nevis, and the garden and pool was laid out with palm trees and tropical flowers. Jones Estate where we are located is on the Caribbean ocean side of the island and has beautiful beaches with calm seas and safe swimming for children. It is our 'home from home', and we are delighted to share it's ambience with others when we are off-island.
It is great to visit all the beaches and restaurants that Nevis has to offer , but some days it is wonderful to just lay in the garden sunbathing , sipping a cool drink, swimming in the pool, and then after lunch of freshly grilled fish and salad , to just lay in the hammock or sit on the veranda and relax with a good book!
We had an amazing time in your villa. We loved Nevis, it feels so friendly and welcoming. We didn't want to come home. We had a few stormy days but nothing to stop us getting out and about and enjoying ourselves.
Claudia your maid was great. In the end we used the top floor only for the three of us as our son was fine in the little room next to the master bedroom. It was more separate than we had envisaged.
Many thanks again for letting us stay. We do plan to return!!
We spent 2 weeks at Villa Verandah on Nevis and it was a wonderful time. The island is quiet and safe, very few tourists. We went mostly to Paradise Beach and, on a stretch of beach of almost a mile, there were never more than 10 people.
The villa is really nice, with a marvelous screened terrace. It truly deserves its name as the verandah goes all the way around on both levels. We had one child that spent some time watching TV but all the adults were outside all the time. The pool is very nice and large enough to swim.
Several people showed up at various times and took care of the yard, pool and house. Very clean and well maintained overall.
Transportation was also well coordinated - we were picked up at the airport by a taxi driver (plenty of taxis at the airport on St Kitts) and then, to the envy of several people waiting at the docks, were handed over to the water taxi that took us immediately to Oualie beach where our rental car was waiting.
Overall a very pleasant experience.
The local representative John met us off the boat late on Saturday afternoon and took the time to show us around the villa, which was immaculately clean and well kept. It is very spacious, and designed and specified to a very high standard. The main verandah is completely mosquito proofed and meant that we could spend every evening outside in complete relaxation. We also spent many happy hours in the pool and on the sun-loungers. The location is very peaceful and private whilst being only a couple of minutes drive from the beach. You can happily spend all day without venturing out if you want, as the villa has everything you need.
John was very accommodating and quick to help us with a couple of things we needed, such as a plug adaptor that we had neglected to bring with us. When the mains water in that part of the island went down, John arranged for the plumber to come round and connect a stand-by supply the same evening. John and Peter and Nikki were very helpful when we had something of a medical emergency late in the second week (which was entirely unrelated to our stay). We very much hope to return.
Peter & Nikki have a wonderful home that was provided spotlessly cleaned for our two week stay, with a special beer and wine treat which was thoughfully in the frig for us as weary travelers - following a 6 hour flight delay at JFK. The accomodations were super-comfortable, especially the lovely plush twin sofas in the great room and the king size bed down the hall. Everything is on one level as we had no need for more that one bedroom. Nor were there any steps or stairs to navigate to enter the house from the driveway outside. The screened in porch was lovely in the evening to enjoy the sunset without having to worry about bugs. The monkeys, who enjoyed a drink at the pool at least once a day, were a delight to watch and to photograph.
Nevis is a wonderful island that we have been returning to for many years. The plantations have never looked better and are a delight to visit. Their food is spectacular, especially at Montpelier.
We look forward to a longer stay next year and recommend Veranda without any reservation.
Best way to arrive is by hired fishing boat from St Kitts, just as the sun is setting. Pitch up at the small jetty at picturesque Oualie beach and you've only a 3 minute drive to the Villa. Airy, spacious, nicely furnished and well equipped, it makes an ideal base for a relaxing holiday. The owners, Peter & Nikki, were excellent hosts - friendly, welcoming and extremely helpful, ironing out minor problems promptly and offering valuable suggestions as to where to go, where to eat and suchlike. A large part of the Villa's verandah has permanent mosquito nets - a superb idea, which meant we could sit outdoors from early morning breakfast to after-sunset snoozing, with no concerns re any biting bugs. The Villa's pool is a very nice size - not so small that the slightly-more-energetic visitor can't manage a bit of reasonable exercise - and is maintained in fine condition by the pool contractor. The gardens are also very nicely kept and "Claudia" ensures the Villa's interior remains pristine, visiting once or twice a week at times to suit. A hire car is advised - the walk to the main road (where the small local, minivan-style, buses seem to pass regularly) is not particularly long but to get anywhere (including the supermarkets in Charlestown around 15 minutes' drive away) means a hire car is sensible. The main roads are generally quite good condition, and drivers tend towards being laid-back and leisurely, average speeds being around 30-40mph, with only the very occasional nutcase who insists on screaming past at a rate of knots (which, even then, usually only amounts to around 50mph). We were particularly in relaxation mode on this holiday, so we took very little exercise beyond wandering along long stretches of the many, deserted, sandy beaches, paddling in the warm waves. If we had intended a more energetic holiday filled with activity, we probably would not have ventured to Nevis, but it absolutely 100% met our requirements for a leisurely re-charging of the batteries. We were not seeking "nightlife" and if we had been, we would have struggled to find it. Good eating places were available, with costs reasonable - similar in fact to costs of eating out in the UK. Having holidayed on many Caribbean islands, I felt much more comfortable and relaxed in Nevis than any of the others. It's still unspoiled and the locals we met were genuinely friendly. We hope to be back! And if we do return, we shall most probably stay again at the Villa Verandah.
The Villa is on Jones Estate at Tamarind Bay , the best location in Nevis just a few minutes from Oualie and Chrishi beaches and only about 50ft above sea level, so no long drives up steep hills to get anywhere . On a private dead end road so no traffic noise at all, you can walk to the nearest restaurant. Scuba Safaris, located at the Oualie Beach, is a full-service dive operation - a five-star NAUI and PADI operation - that is safe, offering professional teaching. It is only 3 minutes away. You can also rent windsurfers here .....or just lay on the beach. 'Miss Junes' the famous restaurant, which you might like to visit, is also just down our lane.
