My name is Austin Wallace. I was born in Nevis and lived there until was 18 years when I migrated to St. Croix (U. S. V. I) and later attended college in Vermont and post graduate at the University of Michigan. My wife Dawn is a Vermonter who first visited the Nevis in 1976 and fell in love with the island and its natural beauty. After retiring in 2007 we moved back to Nevis where we have a home. One of our plans was to build two home style cottages with adequate amenities and a rental rate that is affordable to visitors to the island. e SeaGrape Height cottages were designed and constructed in accordance with our guidelines. This is the first full year that they became available to guests.
Austin Wallace purchased this cottage in 2007
SeaGrape Heights cottages were designed by me and my wife Dawn. They were built on land owned by my parents. Since her visit to Nevis, Dawn picked this spot to build our house. Due to the lack of an access road our house was built in another location. Years later we were able to construct SeaGrape Heights in that spot
SeaGrape Heights cottages have the feeling of a home and specifically a tropical home. They are perched on a hillside and accessible only via a private road. They provide the feeling of truly being secluded with no other buildings nearby. The view is indeed very spectacular. This alone is worth the stay.
Stayed in the 2-bedroom cottage with traveling companion for one week. Located on top of a hill, there are stunning views of the Caribbean Sea & St. Kitts in the distance from the wrap-around porch. Beautifully decorated cottages (there's also a 1-Bedroom unit) feature full kitchens with all appliances, dishes, etc. living rooms, and full bathrooms. Although not used, there are A/C units in all rooms and free WiFi. Tap water is drinkable. Easy walking distance to beaches. Located about 7 miles from Charlestown, shops, and restaurants, so a rental car is recommended, although owners may arrange for private taxi services. Had a wonderful time, relaxing and enjoying Nevis sites!
We really enjoyed our stay at Seagrape Heights cottage on Nevis; we spent a week. The view was wonderful overlooking the ocean. We enjoyed sitting on the porch admiring the view and relishing the breezes. There was plenty of shade on the porch which is very important for us. There is a land line for client use, wifi access, and tv, although we never used the tv. The kitchen is well stocked with necessary cooking utensils, stove and refrigerator (with ice maker) but we usually always ate out; we so enjoy the food on Nevis. There is a nice sized shower in the bathroom which we really appreciated. Every room has a ceiling fan which were very adequate for our needs; but there is also an air conditioner in the bedroom which we never used. It was so nice to be able to hear the ocean at night when going to sleep. There is an outside shower for rinsing off after being on the beach. This was very nice, especially since my husband is a diver. It made it easy to clean off his equipment. The only reason I have given this four stars instead of five is that we missed watching the sunset from our porch; the cottage faces pretty well north. A very, very pleasant place to stay. Thank you. Pat and David
Seagrapeheights cottages are located within a short walking distance from the seashore at Long Haul Bay where reefs near the shore provide good snorkeling and selected areas are good for swimming. Also within walking distance of the cottages is Herbert's Beach a well known popular spot where you can take a lunch and spend the day swimming and basking in the sun or in the shade of nearby coconut trees. Or if you choose you may have lunch and drinks at Nisbet Plantation Hotel beach restaurant a short distance along the beach from Herbert's Beach. Snorkeling and wind surfing/sailing are regular activities at Herbert's Beach (note beach pictures of Herbert's beach).
For those interested in worshiping or seeing historical places, St. James Anglican church (a several centuries old stone building) is about a 1/2 mile from the cottages. Also, if you are interested in visiting the campus of the Medical School of the Americas, that is also within a 1/2 mile walk. For those seeking some physical challenges, you will have direct access to hiking the hills above the cottages.
