Overview

About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 4 Baths (Sleeps 6-7)

Located on the lower slopes of Mount Nevis, the property benefits from great views yet only 5 minutes drive from the beach. The house is set in arguably one of the nicest private gardens on the island. Lush tropical plants, palm trees and fruit trees with spectacular views 180 degrees across the Caribbean sea and St Kitts.

Extensive accommodation includes on the upper level 3 large bedrooms, all ensuite with imported Spanish marble tiles and jacuzzi baths. The large Great Room features a very well stocked kitchen and extensive seating area with entertainment centre inc Plasma and cable TV. To the rear is a screened verandah where one can relax overlooking the gardens and rain forest and watch the monkeys or hummingbirds!

The best feature of the property is the large screened front verandah with a seating area and dining table which can, if required, seat up to 12 adults. It offers spectacular views of the pool, garden and the Caribbean sea across to St Kitts.

On the lower level the owners have built a family games room which extends the width of the property. This features pool and air hockey tables and a settee which converts to a double bed capable of sleeping 2 people. Adjoining this room is a large ensuite wet room and wc ideal for washing off the sand after a day at the beach.

Hummingbird House is situated in a very small development with no passing traffic. The neighbours are friendly and local professionals.

The nearest beach is only a 5 minute drive away, accessed via either Jessups or Barnes Ghaut villages, whilst supermarkets, Charlestown and airport are only a 10 minute drive away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to drop a quick note to thank you so very much for letting us enjoy your home in Nevis.

Hummingbird House was wonderful and we fell in love with Nevis and the wonderful people who call it home.

The only draw back is that the time flew so quickly and there was so much more to see, do and enjoy! We never managed to get back to Double Deuces and Mark and Lyndy-so they will be on top of our list next trip. Hummingbird House is pure perfection...again wish we had spent more time there. That kitchen is certainly set up to cook and entertain.Had we not wanted to soak up every beach and garden we certainly could have idled time right there for the eight days. We did enjoy the pool in the evening and that view is incredible.

Nevis Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Hummingbird house exceeded our expectations. It offered beautiful views, homey decor and all the ammenities one could want. It was a wonderful surprise to have all the items we needed for breakfast provided for us. Saving us from rushing out to a grocery store. A really nice touch. This house will be our choice if we ever return to Nevis.

A Special Place

  • 5 of 5

We loved waking up each morning to watch the shy monkeys and hummingbirds eating "breakfast" in our yard at Hummingbird House. The view is excellent, both of St. Kitts and Mt. Nevis and the house is very comfortable to live in. Nevis is a throwback vacation. It is simple, relaxing and you won't see a stop light anywhere. The owners of this house, Richard and Claire, are wonderful at providing the insights you need, as well, to fully enjoy Nevis. The house has all you need and more. We'll be back.

You will never top this place

  • 5 of 5

Hummingbird house is in a perfect location with excellent views out to st Kitts. The house itself is wonderful - very spacious and light with all mod cons, not to mention also beautifully furnished. The outside space has a lovely decked area with pool and bbq, which was perfect when chilling out watching the monkeys in the trees.

Richard and Claire were excellent hosts, recommending once in a lifetime hidden gems to visit and advising the best times to book certain restaurants and trips. Their advice really meant we could make the most out of our holiday as we felt seasoned visitors before even leaving the house and would have missed out on the many unique and amazing experiences Nevis has to offer without them. They really made us feel welcome and that hummingbird was to be used as a home from home - if only our house was as special as Hummingbird!

Nevis itself is a beautiful and completely unique place. The island is full of character and served up some of the best food we have ever experienced. Wash it down with a rum punch or Carib beer...it was simply perfect! We can't wait to visit again, although staying anywhere else wouldn't be an option.

Everything And Then Some

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have visited multiple islands, and have rented multiple homes, throughout the Caribbean for 13 years. It has always been our goal to choose a new island, have a new experience, and visit a new home, each year. However, after spending a week at Hummingbird House, it is hard for us not to rebook this lovely home for our next Caribbean holiday. When we arrived and found the fridge to be stocked with everything we need to enjoy our first day on Nevis, we realized that Richard takes hosting his lovely home to another level. The picture postcard view you see herein from the pool of Hummingbird House (looking at St. Kitts) is exactly that...a picture postcard. The home's screened in porch is perfect for enjoying as many hours in nature as you like. Pool temperature was right on...poolside furniture was very comfortable...bedrooms were comfortable and quiet...and the kitchen was well appointed with any dishes or appliances you could want. Starting the day on the back porch (also screened in) in the company of hummingbirds and monkeys set the tone for many lovely days on Nevis. Some personal travel tips: 1) the manager of the Turtle Time restaurant can hook you up with a local fisherman (a gentleman from South Africa) who will sell you fresh wahoo and mahi mahi (perfect for grilling on Hummingbird House's fabulous gas grill) ; 2) to experience the wonderful hospitality offered to visitors of Nevis, go to the Water Dept. BBQ on Friday night (a short distance from the Ram's Supermarket in Charlestown). Even better, buy the chef's a beer...you will make new friends instantly; 3) a lunch and a hike around the beautiful gardens of Golden Rock Plantation will be another highlight of your trip to Nevis. 4) A day trip to Nisbet Plantation will be time well spent (home of the best rum punch, IMHO, on Nevis). Having had these wonderful experiences, we now understand why Richard owns this home on this island. Do yourself a favor and book a week at Hummingbird House...just don't take my week for next year! :-)

Hummingbird House exudes homey relaxation plus Incredible views

  • 4 of 5

We felt instantly comfortable the moment we walked up the stairs to the gorgeous pool area: the owners could not have made better choices with the lounge chairs and group seating area on the deck! Views are totally incredible... We enjoyed the front screened porch on hot sunny afternoons and lazed away the evenings there listening to tree frogs chirp. The morning sun porch revealed sweet sightings of vervet monkeys cavorting in the gardens most days. Very photogenic if you are quiet. Comfy beds in private ensuites with A/C just what we Houstonites thought we needed until we realized it is better to leave windows open at night to hear the crickets and birds.

Perfect views of gardens from each room, and we appreciated the suggestion to cut fresh flowers to bring tropical color to the table. This house has everything you need in the kitchen for easy bbq meals. The very few constructive comments we have will best directed to owners privately. With two couples, we could easily have accommodated 1 more couple, maybe a few older teens. You do need a car as it is a long trek up the hill through the neighborhood: be SURE to pay attention to directions the first time up! All owners suggestions proved sound: Must See's are Golden Rock gardens/lunch; Nisbet Plantation beach; Turtle Time at Pinney's! A new restaurant dining experience not to miss, The Gin Trap, near Oualie Beach, features chef quality meals, gin and cocktail bar, paintings by resident artist Rosemary whom we met and shared a lovely conversation about her work. A drive around the entire island will help you find your bliss, and hiking is good, weather permitting with proper footwear. The 4 Seasons Spa was a delightful afternoon diversion for the ladies while the men played a scenic round of challenging golf. Most days we vacillated between going to the beach or staying poolside, or both. Many thanks to Richard for all the terrific suggestions, availability via e-mail while we were there, and for the beautiful home!
