Pond Hill Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom Villa (Sleeps 8)

Mango House is nestled into the side of Mount Nevis enjoying stunning views of the Caribbean Sea, Mount Nevis Peak and the islands of Rodonda and Monserrat. The beautiful teak furniture perfectly compliment the traditional wooden structure of the house. Laze around in the plantation chairs and Bali daybeds on the many terraces or by the pool while sipping a rum punch and enjoying a gentle cool breeze coming down off Mount Nevis. The garden is just over an acre and filled with tropical plants including banana, lime, guava, palm and, of course, many mango trees. It is such a peaceful place and perfect for 'liming'!

About Charlotte and Chris Ackley

Chris and Charlotte Ackley live in London. Chris is originally from the US and Charlotte is Danish. They have three children who are born and raised in the UK but spent their vacations growing up on Nevis.

Charlotte and Chris Ackley purchased this villa in 2008

Why Charlotte and Chris Ackley chose St Kitts & Nevis

Mango house is a beautiful traditional built Caribbean style house. At 800m above sea level it enjoys the gentle cooling breezes of Mount Nevis and yet is only 10 minutes to Windward Beach, The Four Seasons Golf Course and beautiful Charlestown. The house has a beautiful spacious living room on the upper level with a fully equipped kitchen and dining area, huge verandas on both levels, large family room on the lower level with 42 inch flat screen TV and a pool table. There are four large double bedrooms and four large bathrooms.The house also has a 44 foot infinity pool with a large Bali style gazebo and table and chairs for dining and relaxing. In addition to the four bedrooms in Mango house, there is a guest cottage, CocoHut, right next to Mango House. CocoHut can be rented with Mango House but at an additional cost. CocoHut has a master bedroom with a king size bed, a bathroom with shower, a small fully equipped kitchen and a living room with two daybeds suitable for children to sleep on (same size as two single beds).

What makes this villa unique

It is one of the few houses to rent on Nevis that is built in the traditional Caribbean style but has all the comforts of modern living needed for a perfectly relaxing vacation. The house also enjoys the benefits of The Hermitage Plantation Inn's concierge services including horseback riding, tennis, pool, fine dining and cozy bar (probably the best Rum Punch on island).

A True Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from spending five weeks at Mango House and cannot speak highly enough of Mango House as an idyllic place to stay on Nevis.

The house itself is spacious, beautifully furnished, and very comfortable. As with any rental property there will always be a few minor problems, but Ian Hart, the house manager and owner of the property firm, Hart Of Nevis, never failed to solve them for us in record speed.

We like to cook and the kitchen is one of the best equipped we have come across in several years of renting villas in the Caribbean. We particularly enjoyed finding local ingredients and some of the best vegetables we found on Nevis came from Sherma's vegetable stand about a five minute drive away.

The location of Mango House just above The Hermitage means that you have a restaurant/bar within walking distance should you choose not to cook, although be warned the return to Mango House is steep and dark at night! A car is essential for shopping, exploring the island, visiting beaches and other restaurants. The farthest you would have to drive is about half an hour to reach any restaurant on the island. The road to Mango House is steep and dotted with swales to deal with water run off so some care is needed, especially as in some places it is effectively wide enough for only one car at a time. It is easy to get used to it and we only had difficulty on our last day when the road was blocked off by the Electric Company.

Sadly, I had to work a little while we were away but the internet connection was excellent.

We made great use of the pool which is definitely large enough both for a family and a dedicated length swimmer like myself.

At the end of five weeks we agreed that Mango House was the best villa we have rented in the Caribbean and would strongly recommend it for families or groups of friends who want to enjoy the best of Nevis.
