Firefly Cottages are two secluded, ecological cottages overlooking Spring Hill ravine on the historic island of Nevis. They sit on stilts above the forest canopy and are gently integrated into the tropical landscape. In a glen between the cottages is a hillside pool with a sun deck.
The non-intrusive building style and the small stream below the cottages make them one of the best locations from which to view the island's wildlife. At night, the forest below is lit by dancing fireflies. And in the morning, chattering monkeys swing by in the tree tops right next to the balconies. More than sixty species of birds populate the forest below. After a heavy rain higher up on the mountain, you can hear the rushing of water in the stream, along with some very happy frogs.
The cottages are completely self-contained, with fully-equipped kitchenettes and full bathrooms with showers. They are air-conditioned and have ceiling fans. The dining area of each cottage is located on the balcony.
