Description

Main House

The master bedroom has a four-poster sleep-number queen-size bed. A tiny adjacent child’s room has a cast iron bed with an extra pull-out bed. Next to the bedrooms is a bathroom with its own porch. It has an antique claw-foot tub and a walk-in closet.


About the property

Lambsdown

Hidden away on the sleepy island of Nevis, with a cloud-shrouded mountain as the dramatic backdrop and Nevis’ sister-isle St. Kitts as part of the property’s 180-degree ocean-view, Lambsdown Cottages offer beauty, serenity and privacy, a true “home away from home”.

Gingerbread trim, shaded verandahs, plantation-style stone steps, bevelled glass doors, polished hardwood floors and state-of-the-art kitchens make for a magical mix of modern convenience and old-fashioned charm. Four different cottages (see also 869393), extensive gardens and two refreshing pools make Lambsdown Cottages your perfect tropical escape.

The cottages have been featured in numerous international magazines, including Caribbean Life, Dove, the New York Post, and other publications.

Surroundings: Lambsdown Cottages are perched on a mountainside, overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The beach is minutes away. Rainforest clad ravines, filled with Green Vervet monkeys, wild goats, fireflies and hummingbirds, surround the property.

The 180-degree view of the Caribbean Sea makes every sunset a stunning experience.

Nevis is a quiet, rather undeveloped island, often referred to as one of the 'sleepiest' in the Caribbean. For divers, hikers, nature lovers and explorers, the lack of crowds is part of the charm and allure of the island.

Cottage features: Lambsdown Cottages are fully air-conditioned and furnished with antiques gathered from around the world. Main Cottage has a pool and Garden Cottage has a small outdoor jacuzzi on the porch.

Location: Closest beaches: Cades Bay, Oualie Beach and Pinney's Beach.

Time to beach: less than 5 min. drive.

Time to closest convenience store: less than 5 min. drive.

Time to shops in Charlestown: 20 min. drive.

Time to airport: 10-15 min. drive.

Lambsdown Cottages are located on the lush, volcanic island of Nevis in the West Indies. Perched on a hill with Nevis Peak as a backdrop, the property has a 180-degree view of the Caribbean Sea and Nevis' sister isle St. Kitts. The beach at Cades Bay is within walking distance, while Oualie Beach, Nisbet Plantation Beach, Pinney's Beach and the Robert Trent Jones III golf course of the Four Seasons Resort, are just minutes away by car. A walking trail to the ruins of a historic sugar estate, Spring Hill Plantation, starts at the property's garden gate. Day trips to the scenic and largely uninhabited St. Kitts Peninsula is within easy reach, with a car ferry leaving several times per day from the dock just below the cottages. Being on a hill comes with the added advantage of having cooling mountain breezes to help ease the tropical heat during the day and being able to leave the occasional sand flies and mosquitoes of the beach area behind as you head home to your cottage at sunset.

Golf: Four Seasons Resort has a spectacular 18-hole course designed by Robert Trent Jones III. Non-residents may purchase use of the course at the Four Seasons Resort club house. Equipment, including clubs and golf carts, may also be rented. For more information, please contact the Resort.
