Guestbook comments from the owner

We picked a winner! Too Much Nice was everything we had hoped and much more. We were awed by the beautiful views of St. Kitts, gorgeous sunsets and three very picturesque rainbows. The property itself is very well appointed and maintained with a nice variety of tropical plantings.

There were days that we didn’t leave the porch and pool. On the days that we ventured out, we always looked forward to returning to our own little world at Too Much Nice. We did enjoy exploring the island, it's beaches and restaurants. Our favorite restaurants were Golden Rock Inn, Chrisi Beach and Yachtsman Grill.

A stay at Too Much Nice is something that we have on our “bucket list” to do again.

TooMuchNice is Paradise...wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

TooMuchNice is the perfect place to stay on Nevis!!! We enjoyed six wonderful weeks there recently.The location is great, the house is beautiful and the staff, (Ian, Savi and David), and the owners Julie and Roger were all a delight. Although we did use the great BBQ at the house quite a bit, we also enjoyed meals and drinks at Nisbet Plantation (particularly loved the very historical-feeling bar area), Hermitage (Weds. pig roast), Montpelier, Golden Rock (sit under the big tree overlooking the fish ponds and restaurant), Mt. Nevis Hotel (late afternoon), Bananas (a favorite), Double Deuce, Lime, Yachtsman, The Gin Trap, Chrishi Beach, Coconut Grove, the Oasis at the Botanical Gardens, Cafe des Arts, Turtle Time, Sunshine's, Indian Summer and two favorite little, local gems-one called Passion owned and operated by Karen and Bombay Bites ( next to the runway at the airport).

Please don't miss the chance to visit Nevis. Staying at TooMuchNice made our time on this lovely and friendly island a trip that was full of great experiences and memories.

Amazing Anniversary Trip

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Too Much Nice! We have been traveling in the Caribbean for over 25 years, normally renting a villa or home so that we can experience living on the island. After staying at Too Much Nice for 10 days, we both agreed that it was by far one of the nicest properties we have ever booked. It checks all the boxes for us: clean, close to beaches and restaurants, easy to access, A/C in the bedroom, private and a pool. And this pool is absolutely top notch for swimming, lounging, and views! The property is exactly as advertised and Julie is a great hostess - easy to work with and very helpful. We also appreciated Julie and her property manager, Ian, arranging all the transfer details and the rental car. This service is very valuable and is such a luxury. Julie's recommendations on restaurants is spot on. We enjoyed Double Deuce for several meals, as well as the Gin Trap. For our anniversary, we chose to go to Coconut Grove and have lobster and an amazing bottle of wine. As always, we enjoyed to local people and our time on the island of Nevis. And, as I told Julie, we will be back!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from an amazing week's stay at TooMuchNice, wow this is an outstanding villa with superb views and equipped to the very highest standard. The photographs and description really do not do it justice. Particularly appreciated the large swimming pool which was immaculately maintained. There are excellent beaches nearby including Oualie, Lovers, Paradise and Pinneys all within a few minutes drive. There are some great restaurants nearby including The Gin Trap, Bananas on the edge of the rain forest and Golden Rock . The property owner Julie is a pleasure to deal with and the team on Nevis that maintain the property cannot be faulted. Will definitely be booking a return visit to this 6* villa.

Our piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time on Nevis. We searched on VRBO for places to stay on the island and finally decided on TooMuchNice. No question we made the right choice. This place was perfect! During our week we saw other places for future places to stay but no question we love TooMuchNice due to being clean, beautiful, and private! The transfer from plane, boat taxi, and the house went so smoothly! (Thank you Julie and Ian.) Getting back to the airport was the same; which is a huge plus. The taxi driver to the boat gave us hints of the do’s and don’ts. For example (and you will forget): Drive on the left! Be observant. Drivers like to stop on either side of the road. Why?....ummmm….just because. So again, be observant. Overall though, there were no worries. The taxi boat was great by supplying beverages during the quick trip to the island. Ian was right, he was waiting at the dock to take us to the house. He is very pleasant, informative, and answered all of our questions.

The property is absolutely beautiful with the exquisite landscaping! The layout of the house and balcony was fantastic along with the private pool area. With the heat and humidity, the pool was the focal point for our relaxation. The house is located on the hillside so we had great breezes. We kept all the doors open for the breeze when we were there. At night we closed up the house and the bedroom quickly cooled down with the a/c for perfect sleeping.

It is priority to bring suntan lotion and bug spray. The mosquitoes were minimal on the island but when we got bit, the bites would welt up. So, simply make sure to spray yourself throughout the day to be safe.

The kitchen is well supplied for cooking. The gas grill was definitely used. There are local grocery stores but be prepared that each store will supply different items. For example, some will only have frozen meats, etc. You need to go to each store and then learn where best to pick up items.

We went to various restaurants.

Bananas: Good

Indian Summer: Excellent!!!

Yachtsman Grill: Good

The Rocks: Good (Excellent landscaping)

Chrishi Beach Club: Excellent!!! The burger/fries was beyond fantastic. We are still trying to figure out how thee fries stayed hot until the last bite.

Four Seasons: Excellent morning brunch.

Steve and I have traveled a lot. When we return to the area, we totally agree TooMuchNice will be our destination!

Our Dream Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this beautiful villa on Nevis. Both stays at TooMuchNice exceeded our expectations. The villa is very well maintained and clean. We couldn't help but notice the improvements made to the grounds and furnishings. My husband enjoyed drinking his early morning coffee up in the newly added gazebo where he could take in the panoramic views of not only the turquoise water but also majestic Mt. Nevis. The views of St. Kitts from the pool area are also absolutely beautiful. It's a place that you can't help but find relaxing and scenic. We were fortunate to see the monkeys playing daily in the neighborhood. We also discovered that the monkeys are very active between 4-5pm so we took daily strolls around the neighborhood to observe them. The baby monkeys were everywhere and we had so much fun watching them play. There is also a walk you can take off the back road near the villa that takes you to a few old sugar cane relics. We waited five years between visits but we have already decided we will wait no longer than 2 years before returning. We can't imagine staying anywhere else on Nevis than this beautiful villa. Our favorite restaurants are - Bananas, Mango's, Sunshine's (for a Killer Bee) and Golden Rock. Be sure to take the beach chairs over to nearby Paradise Beach for the day. It's one of the most beautiful beaches we've ever visited! Julie, we can't thank you enough for making our stay so pleasant and for the smooth arrangements for our transport to and from St. Kitts airport to your lovely villa. A very dreamy place to chill and we are so thankful for you sharing your lovely home with us! No photo can do this place justice. There is just too much beauty to take in.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five was lucky enough to spend our Christmas holiday on the island of Nevis at this perfect home. Our boys were a little nervous about being away from home at Christmas but the trip went so smoothly and our stay was so perfect that they want to do it every year! Julie was so helpful from our first inquiry email. She helped to organize the transfers from the airport to the water taxi to Nevis. The helpful house manager met us at the dock and took us to the house where our car was waiting in the driveway! She even made sure that there was a little Christmas tree and lights to welcome us to their home. The pictures do not do the house justice. Every morning I would have my coffee looking at Nevis peak and every night a sun downer as the sun set into the ocean. The house is perfectly set up and was very spacious for our family of five. One tip that I wish we had followed earlier was that we should have shut the sliding doors before the sunset. We left them wide open the first couple of nights before bed and were eaten alive in bed even with the mosquito nets. It was fine after we started following that tip. The monkeys really do come visit in the mornings. One day there must have been a troop of 40 monkeys in the neighbour's trees -so entertaining for the boys! Despite the house being so inviting -with so many great novels there to read- we went exploring most days. We loved Pinney's Beach and ate a Lime (awesome food), Sunshines (the Killer Bee "stung" us a couple of times, but it is very entertaining to watch the cruise ship people get "stung" too) Walk down in front of the Four Season and go snorkeling in front of their breakers -we saw a sea turtle, sting rays and lots of pretty fish. We enjoyed Chrisiti Beach as well (very close to the house) and the waves were fun. The sunbeds are lovely and it is a wonderful place to spend the day. We tried to hike The Source -but it is really far for little legs-but still fun! Christmas Eve was spent at Golden Rock -WOW!!! It was truly magical. Paradise Beach is definitely worth a visit, there aren't any restaurants but that is part of the charm. After parking, walk to the right and you will be in front of the resort where Prime Minister Trudeau holidayed with his family! I highly recommend TooMuchNice -but, don't go at Christmas because I want to go then;)
