Overview

New Castle Estate Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms private villa close to beach with stunning sea views.

To truly appreciate the beauty and privacy of Coccoloba please watch our video by clicking the 'Video' link above the photo on this page or go to our website - Coccoloba dot com

Coccoloba is often referred to by Nevisians as having “the best view in Nevis”. And not just Nevisians, featured in Caribbean Travel and Life, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Liat magazine and Nevis Tourism brochures it is a show case of how modern architecture, materials and living can embrace traditional Caribbean design principles.

After you've looked around this listing, please visit our website for lots more photographs, video tours and information about this exceptional villa.

Completed in 2008, Coccoloba really is a sight to behold. A West Indian hip-shaped roof sits above plantation style teak verandahs covering an area of 3420 square feet. In addition there is an enormous pool allowing 54’ laps and providing a stunning 21’ infinity edge. Adjoining the pool is a further 1000 square feet of soft Jerusalem limestone deck. The whole property oozes simple clean lines and open spacious living areas.

Walk through Coccoloba’s front door and the first thing you notice is a breathtaking view of St. Kitts. Thirty two feet of bi-fold glass doors open up from the great room to give unobstructed views across the infinity edge pool, over ‘The Narrows’ and on to St. Kitts. You can even see St. Barts on a clear day! The kitchen and great room are open plan with honed limestone flooring, cypress vaulted ceiling, comfortable soft furnishings and every appliance needed for a modern kitchen. In the Great Room there is also Wi-Fi broadband internet, telephone and a new home entertainment system consisting of 55' Samsung 4k TV, Sony a/v receiver and Definitive Technology 600 ProCinema speakers. We have cable TV and world wide sports channels covering everything you wouldn't want to miss.

Wake up in the king sized teak four poster in the master bedroom and gaze over your feet through the 8’ glass doors at the Atlantic Sea. Turn your head to the left and look through another 10’ opening at the Caribbean Sea and the rising sun lighting up St Kitts. The guest bedroom can be furnished with either a king size bed or two individual beds. Bi-fold doors from this bedroom lead directly onto the pool.

The villa is surrounded on all four sides with beautiful Trinidadian teak decked verandahs. The west verandah is 14’ deep by 72’ long with dining table, sofa, chairs and chaise longue. Watching the sunset from this elevation of 270’ is amazing, especially when you are treated with the famous ‘green flash’. You will also find that the elevation deters the mosquitoes that are usually found at sea level.

The villa appears to hang on the edge of a hill overlooking Oualie Bay. It is set in 33,000 sq ft of landscaped garden at the end of a private road. Sitting back from the main island road and benefitting from the omission of adjoining neighbors, Coccoloba enjoys peacefulness and serenity. Turn off the verandah lights at night and watch the fireflies dance through the Coccoloba (Latin for ‘Seagrape’).

Coccoloba is perfectly located for enjoying the best of Nevis. Lover’s Beach, Oualie Beach, Tamarind Bay, Cades Bay and Pinney’s Beach are all within two miles. A great choice of restaurants including Gallipot, Mount Nevis, Miss June’s, Oualie Beach Hotel, Coconut Grove and Yachtsman’s Grill are also on the doorstep. Oualie Bay provides water sports including scuba diving, yacht charter, sailing, kayaking, snorkeling, deep sea fishing and wind surfing. Take a water taxi over to St Kitts and enjoy a meal at Beach House or Spice Mill. All that Oualie Bay offers within a 10 minute walk.

Please visit our website for lots Coccoloba.com more photographs, video tours and information about Coccoloba.

Coccoloba is that special spot in the Caribbean that will help fulfill all your holiday dreams.

About Peter & Louise

Louise and I visited the island for the first time in 2006 with a view to placing the island of Nevis in our top ten choices to build a vacation home. Within four weeks we decided we need look no further than Nevis and placed a deposit on a 35,000 sq ft plot.

I am a civil engineer and decided to take a sabbatical in order to pull together my own crew of Nevisians and build the house myself. By the time it was finished in 2008 the island had got it's hooks into me and I never left. Louise joined me and we have made a life for ourselves on the island. We have our own construction project management consultancy and I have a contractors licence on Nevis. Last year I finished the complete rebuild of Paradise Beach Resort to which I am about to add five more beachside pole houses. We have also completed the construction of a series of vacation homes for owners residing in the UK, USA and Canada.

Peter & Louise purchased this estate in 2006

Why Peter & Louise chose Nevis

We put over a 1000 miles on the clock of our rental in just four weeks on this tiny 36 square mile island. We covered every realtors listing and searched every nook and cranny of the island. Eventually we found the perfect location, high above Oualie Bay overlooking the Narrows and St Kitts yet tight up to the coast line to give unprecedented views - but it wasn't for sale! Some research revealed the owner was in America and had sat on the land for twelve years. A few phone calls later, a deal was struck and the plot was ours!

What makes this estate unique

We are at the very end of the private road known as Ridge Road. We have no immediate neighbours so while we are in the thick of the islands best restaurants, activities and beaches we are utterly private, quiet and serene

Stunning Hideaway.

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at this lovely property. I've no doubt it has one of the best views in the Caribbean with St Kitts across the water and sunsets directly across.

Very luxurious, yet homely..especially with a resident cat! Which is very pleasant and low maintenance.

The fantastic infinity pool kept our 12 year old entertained throughout and the excellent Oualie beach is right on your doorstep - one of the nicest beaches on the island, along with Lovers beach just a short walk further along.

All in all loved our stay and Peter & Louise are very respectful of your privacy, yet are always at hand should you need anything.

Hope to stay again the near future. Lovely.

Absolutely stunning.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three - myself, my husband and our teenage daughter traveled to the island of Nevis for my husband's birthday. Peter & Louise were absolutely wonderful to work with from the first correspondence. It's terrific how they set up transportation for you - it makes everything so seamless and carefree. We walked out of the airport and there were lines of people waiting to get into vehicles and there was our guy, standing with his sign, and boom, we were off! From the time we arrived at the airport, we were in the GLORIOUS Coccoloba within an hour. You walk down the stairs of the property, and through the front door and you cannot believe your eyes!!! The pictures you've been viewing online for the months leading up are all of a sudden your reality and even better!!!! The home is absolutely gorgeous, every finish high-end, and the home flows flawlessly from room to room. Let me tell you about the outdoor space – WOW!!! The outdoor space is possibly the best we've experienced and to put it lightly, we are ISLAND FANATICS. We have many to many islands, and rented many beautiful villas, and I can say this is the FIRST time we spent a day at a home, an entire day, with no beach excursion and to tell it truthfully, we spent TWO full days at the house, swimming, sipping on cocktails, hanging out, looking at that VIEW!!! I almost felt guilty, but it was so lovely, the guilt quickly disappeared. Thank you, Louise & Peter, for the ability to rent this spectacular property where you can float your days away in a beautiful infinity pool, looking out onto St. Kitts and Nevis where the Caribbean and Atlantic ocean waters lap at the beautiful golden, and sometimes black sand beaches ... Coccoloba proved to be an idyllic backdrop for our family trip.

The Best on Nevis

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently returned from our two week extraordinary stay at Coccoloba. For those of you who can, we definitely recommend staying two rather than one week since you will find it a much more leisurely way to experience Nevis and enjoy this amazing villa...besides you won't want to leave, so the longer you stay the better. Peter and Louise are great to work with in arranging the booking, plus they made everything easy to get to and from the airport to Coccoloba, and they stocked food and drink for our arrival including a dinner for my wife's 62nd birthday which was on the day we arrived. The house and its setting is almost indescribably beautiful. The gardens are lush and tropical, the house is open air and the large patio and infinity pool looking west to the sunsets just can't be beat. Oh yeah and it comes with your own family of monkeys and a cat named "Trouble". We have traveled to most of the islands in the Caribbean, and we always stay in a private villa. They are all wonderful places, and Coccoloba is right among the best places we have ever stayed. The bonus you get when staying at Coccoloba is that you will experience a very interesting and relaxed island paradise. Nevis has a fascinating history, now reflected in the converted sugar plantation guest houses and restaurants, all of which are great dining choices. Personally, while we enjoyed all of those, we found ourselves more often then not at the island beach bars consuming way too many rum punches (Sunshines with the Killer Bee rum concoction will definitely live on in our memory). So we did venture beyond the villa, but never for too long, because the best place to be, particularly at sunset time, was Coccoloba!

You will not be disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Coccoloba in Nevis at the end of March 2016. My husband and I traveled with our two children, both teenagers. Reading all the previous reviews, we were convinced that it was the right place for us. When we arrived, everything was exactly as expected. Louise and Peter took care of our transport from the airport in St Kitts, arranged a rental car, stocked some groceries, and personally welcomed us to Nevis and their home. Their beautiful home is very private, clean and comfortable in every way. The views are breathtaking and never get old. The island guide they provided was invaluable and we quickly acclimated to the island lifestyle. We told Peter and Louise that we wanted to go sailing and snorkeling and they recommended and booked us a 1/2 day sail with Miles and Nevis Yacht Charters. It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Overall, I think our favorite thing to do was to hang around the house while reading, swimming, and watching for the monkeys that come to feed on the hillside.

Nothing better

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at Coccoloba, and can't begin to describe how much we loved it. The views are absolutely stunning, in every direction and every part of the house -- the pictures don't do them justice. And the house was so comfortable and beautifully designed, landscaped and maintained. We loved exploring, hiking and eating in Nevis, but our favorite by far was just hanging out at the villa - watching the monkeys over morning coffee, floating in the pool and just loving every aspect of the villa, inside and out. Peter and Louise have thought of every detail and made sure that we had a wonderful visit. We will definitely be back!

Incredible house, incredible location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just got back from a week at Coccoloba, and WOW, I can't say enough good things about it. I only hesitate because once people realize what a gem this is, I fear it will be booked for years in advance! This house is absolutely perfect. The views are incredible-- from all rooms in the house. The landscaping and gardening around the outside of the property show the love and care the owners put into the house, and the same attention to detail is evident inside as well. The house was warm and inviting-- a true home, not a sterile rental property!

Peter and Louise were amazing to work with. They greeted us upon arrival, stocked the fridge with breakfast basics (plus a few beers and a bottle of wine), and left a detailed book of restaurants, maps, and island information. The kitchen is well stocked, the towels are plush, the beds are comfortable, and the outdoor living space is perfect for island living! The pool is spectacular, and the sunsets at night were just gorgeous.

We chose the house based on the pictures and reviews from other travelers-- and we had no idea how lucky we were with its location! It sits just above Oualie Beach, and just 5-10 minutes from all the beautiful west side beaches and amazing restaurants. We were so close to everything, and yet because the house is situated at the end of the road (up on the hill), there is a sense of seclusion and total privacy. It is the perfect combination of "escaping" yet having easy access when you want it. The island community is close-knit and everyone is SUPER friendly.

My husband and I enjoyed our week there, and we could have easily come with another couple or our children. The two bedrooms are spacious, and the living areas are open and airy. The layout is great whether you are solo or with a group of people-- the kitchen/family room flow right into the outdoor space. They had lounge chairs, wicker chairs and sofas, and a huge dining area outside, as well as a large island bar in the kitchen and comfortable sofas inside with a huge tv (which we never even turned on). My husband was grateful for the AC in the bedroom, although the breezes were beautiful. We loved the nespresso machine and milk frother in the kitchen!

We have rented houses all over the Caribbean, and this by far has been our favorite. A definite piece of paradise!
