LAZY TURTLE VILLA, NEAR NISBET PLANTATION, ON THE BEACH!

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Nisbet Beach - Lazy Turtle Villa

2 bedrooms, 2 baths

The Lazy Turtle Villa is one of the few beach side villas with private pool on Nevis.

Set between the mountain and the beach, the views are stunning. The villa is built around the ocean with views of the sea from every room. A private path leads you to the white sands of Nisbet beach. A short walk leads you to Nisbet Plantation, a top rated plantation style inn where you can enjoy excellent dining or simply a cold drink at the casual beach bar. You can set up a tab there for your convenience.

The villa includes a very large porch with 2 hammocks, a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, a living room with WIFI, TV, and DVD and just outside is another hammock and gazebo nearby.

Our bedrooms feature Nevisian style mahogany beds with Egyptian cotton sheets. The master bedroom is air conditioned although most people prefer to fall asleep to the magical tradewinds.

We will pick you up at Nevis airport or on St. Kitts free of charge and bring you home where a rental car will await you. We pride ourselves on our service and convenience.

Tennis: Four Seasons tennis is second to none, with ten courts and ample facilities, services and amenities including night play and professional instruction.

Managed by world-renowned Peter Burwash International, the site comprises four red clay courts (two lit for night play) and six hard courts (three lit for night play). Tennis equipment, apparel and accessories are available from the pro shop, located in the sports pavilion.

The Four Seasons hotel is a short drive away and welcomes our guests for Tennis and Golf (see below). Spa treatments can also be reserved at their world class spa.

Water Sports: Lazy turtle is a short drive from Oualie beach resort. There you will find scuba diving, mountain biking, snorkeling, sunfish sailing, sport fishing boats, a windsurfing school, hobie cats, kayaks and day sailing adventures on yachts and catamarans. You can rent boats, windsurfers and kayaks.

Guided sailing trips can be arranged at this location.

Four Seasons beach club is a 20 minute drive and offers waterskiing, banana boating and tubing.

Adventure sports and other activities: The mountainous terrain and beautiful beaches provide the perfect backdrop for horseback riding, mountain biking and hiking.

We will direct you to some terrific guides who can help share the island with you and create a perfect workout as well!

One of our favorite activities is hiking to plantation ruins. Our kids like to figure out the function of each building they discover.

Climb to the top of Mount Nevis! This is not for the faint of heart and a guide is recommended. This is a stunning hike and the view from the top is well worth the effort!

About Lara Patriquin

We have been visiting Nevis for over 20 years and our parents live on Nevis during the winter. As such, we have many secrets to share! Ask us about hikes through the ruins or the latest restaurant openings and we would be happy to share.

Our extensive experience on the island has allowed us to set up the perfect vacation. From the private water taxi that picks you up at the St. Kitts airport, to having a rental car waiting for you at the villa, we love to see our guests stress free!

Lara Patriquin purchased this villa in 2007

Why Lara Patriquin chose Nisbet Beach

Nevis has a little of everything: beautiful beaches, abundant wildlife, great hiking, world class golfing, water sports and incredible restaurants. We also just love the people. This is an unspoiled island that has maintained it's dignity over the years. We have made many friends amongst the people there and could not imagine a more serene place to unwind.

What makes this villa unique

Although we love all the activities of Nevis and all she has to offer, what we love most is coming home, getting a drink and settling in on the porch or gazebo and just stare at the ocean. We feel so peaceful there. Many of our guests have repeated this to us and this is why so many come back to our home.

A December to Remember

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I, along with our 2 young adult children, enjoyed our second visit to Lazy Turtle. This time we stayed for 2 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed the Christmas holiday on Nevis. The owner provided a lot of information on things to do and their parents, Ron and Jane, were the perfect hosts. They arranged for our transport from the airport and had the car rental delivered to the house. They truly want to make sure you have a good visit and are available to assist with contacts to arrange outings on the island. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. We loved lounging out on the large screen porch reading and listening to the tree frogs at night. We really love going to the various plantations around the island that are now beautiful hotel resorts to have lunch or dinner. We particularly like Golden Rock and Montpelier. Next door, is Nisbet Plantation, with whom the owners have an arrangement that their guests can open a tab at the plantation, that allowed us to eat over at the beach bar and restaurant. There is a steel drum band that plays for Sunday lunch at Nisbet and the Thursday night dinner and dancing on the beach is a lot of fun. We also enjoyed the other restaurants such as Lime, Sunshines, Gallipot and Bananas. Jane and Ron gave us a personal guided hike to an old plantation site and provided information about other hiking opportunities. On the advice of the owners,we also went zip lining on St. Kitts, which was a blast. While there we also visited Caribelle Batik and the Brimstone Hill Fortress. All in all, it was a wonderful vacation with plenty of time just relaxing by the pool and swimming in the beautiful ocean, as well as, adventuring around the island. We wish we could visit every year and hope to return soon.

Lazy Turtle Villa truly a FiND

  • 5 out of 5
Lazy Turtle Villa truly is a find. Jane and her staff make a stay at Lazy Turtle memorable. It has such charm, beauty and comfort which all combined make for a perfect vacation. We have been traveling to Nevis over 20 years and only wish we had "discovered" Lazy Turtle years earlier. We will definitely be back. David & Theresa Bard. Little Rock, Ar

Happy Days... :))

  • 5 out of 5
We work too hard... 6 days most weeks and silly hours, so when we go on holiday, we want it to be just right and for us both to be able to relax and do the little bit of work we can't avoid. Somewhere, with sun, swimming, walks, nice restaurants, and shops for the essentials - and good wifi!

Well we hit the nail right on the head with the Lazy Turtle and Nevis. We flew in from London and were met by Daisy exactly as we had been told we would be in the very useful and efficient emails we had received from Lara and Jane and the water taxi across to Nevis was a fun way to start our trip - nice boat Wincent!

We then met Marlon who rented us a car for the duration of our trip - as we like to explore off the beaten track a bit, the little 4x4 was ideal. On arrival at the the villa, Bonnie was waiting to show us around and in no time we had settled into our new 'home'. The villa is exactly as described and has all the facilities mentioned, although we didn't use some of them - the TV didn't get turned on once! The pool is great and the garden is bigger than expected - one of our delights was wandering down the garden, through the gate and down the path to the beach to watch the sun rise in the mornings...

We spent our days exploring Nevis, as well as catching the ferry over to St Kitts for a couple of days there. We ate out most evenings and found some splendid restaurants - Gallipot (clearly the ex-pats favourite..!), Bananas, Golden Rock, Hermitage and Coconut Grove are all worth a visit, but our favourite was Chrishi's which had great food and staff and splendid cocktails!

The Botanical Gardens are well worth a visit, as is the museum in Charlestown - a visit which can be ended with a drink at the very friendly Cafe des Arts next door. It's also fun to look around away from the main road around the island. We tried out several of the roads marked as 'dirt track/road' on the map and found all sorts of remains from the island's plantation past, as well as the first herd of wild donkeys we have ever come across! And monkeys...lots of monkeys...

All in all we had a fantastic time, and if you want your own space and to do your own thing, away from the normal tourist trail, then the Lazy Turtle is a great place to do it. I suspect we may be back..!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 out of 5
The house and grounds are perfect. Both are maintained so well. We loved cooking meals. Eating on the porch or gazebo. Loved taking drinks in a cooler to the beach! We loved playing in the ocean.
Jane got us from St. Kitts to Nevis, with her awesome crew, Daisy, Wincent and Marlon and Bonnie, there at the Lazy Turtle to show you around. You get little tibits of info from all of them. Go on the Tour with Marlon. He is fun to be around and you learn so much about Nevis.
Our favorite saying came from DeJorn, "It's safe, you are in Nevis now".(As he left our luggage outside of Marlon's taxi). Every place is safe, free to explore all the beaches and trails.
We ate at Sunshine's(Hmm! Killer Bee, conch, and conch fritters), Golden Rock(Lobster sandwich, Chicken curry and chocolate cake, sinful), The Gallipot(Wahoo was good),Ouellie's(Fish tacos and beer battered fish, and Paradise Drive Thru(french fries and chicken wings, yummy!) and had ice cream at OMG! The food was great to out of this world. We also heard that all the snackettes on the island make great, yummy local food and is pretty cheap (we'll try them next time).
I would suggest going to the fruit and veggie stands before you buy them at the grocery store. Great selections in both! You will find just about everything we have here.
So much to see and do! We climbed Mt. Nevis to the view(slippery rock)! Drove on roads that lead off the main Rd. We went to Fort Charlse, it's in ruins, but so worth finding. There are views every where you are of either the ocean or mountains (The Lazy Turtle has both!). We walked the beaches, watched the sunsets. Lounged in the pool, swam at night under the stars. Took a ferry to St. Kitts out of Charlestown. Went on a taxi tour with William, De KIng, he is fun and knows the island's history. He loves his island and loves sharing it with you! He loves questions! Brimstone, Romney Manor, Black Rocks, black beaches and more! It was a Great Day!
The people of Nevis are friendly, helpful to tourist, who can't find places. We found smiles are universal and so is laughter. Look around, you may see birds, small lizards, cows, sheep, goats, donkeys, monkeys, crabs. Watch carefully as you drive and see the older goats and sheep heard the little ones to the side of the road.
We say Maine is the way life should be...nuh, Nevis is the way life should be. We know why people have come to Nevis and why some never left! I know we will be back!

Best 25th Anniversary Trip

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second stay at Lazy Turtle and it was just as great as the first time. Lara and Jane have created a paradise in this rental home. The description does not accurately describe how great this home is to rent. They have provided everything that you need to feel like you are staying in the Four Seasons but with the privacy of your own pool and beach. The property is taken care of a gardener, pool man and a housekeeper who respect your privacy but keep the property immaculate. The addition of the air conditioner was nice when the bedroom became too hot one night but the rest of the house remains cools with the ocean breezes. The view of the ocean from the house is perfect. Bonnie does a great job of meeting you at the house and giving you house and island information. She is available 24 hours a day and is always very helpful. There are alot of great restaurants and things to do on the island. Marlon Locke, who we rented a car from, gives a great island tour. We advise taking the tour early in your stay so you can go back to the places and spend more time checking them out. Some of the great restaurants we ate at were Lime Cafe, Cafe des Arts, Coconut Grove and Montpelier Planatation Inn. The entertainment at Lime Cafe on Friday night is excellent so don't miss it. We would also recommend OMG which serves the best ice cream - make sure to ask for the special creations. We actually didn't have a bad meal at any of the restaurants. We really enjoyed the Nevisian Heritage Village and just exploring the island. Everyone is very helpful and friendly on the island so take the time to visit with the local people. I would recommend this property to everyone and anyone. We have stayed at other Home Away properties and we think this one is the best. Take our advice and don't pass up this property or you will regret it!

great place for adventure and relaxation!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great time in Nevis and at the Lazy Turtle Villa. we went as two couples and spent most of our time when at the villa either in the large screened in porch (we fought over the hammocks during naptime!) or out at the pool. It is a warm pool and there are nice beach towels provided.The place had very limited bugs (only saw two and that is pretty impressive when thinking about the environment we were in) and the towels and sheets were comfy and nice! They pay to have someone clean, garden, and tend to the pool so it remained quite clean and nice. We had Bonnie and Jane Paul helping us and they were terrific. They also have wonderful suggestions! we went deep sea fishing with their recommendation and it was terrific! we caught 6 fish (had a few more on-a barracuda, black-finned tuna, and whitefish) in 5 foot swells. it is a little windy during this time but the breeze felt wonderful and made for terrific sleeping (and adventurous fishing). she also provided us with a tour of the island with a great guide. We also hiked to the top of the volcano (3200 feet or so). It is definitely more of a climb than a "hike" but another terrific adventure. Food was very good on the island. somewhat expensive but fresh fish, salads, and great scenery! Definitely would come back again and the Lazy Turtle was excellent! They were so helpful and it was a terrific place to stay.
This place is on the ocean, on the Atlantic side. This is not the most popular beach and it is not a huge beach but the trade winds helped with sleeping and staying cool. when we wanted to really walk the beach, we went to Pinney's beach, grabbed a Killer Bee (rum punch) from Sunshine's and wandered. this is a little bit better for walking for a longer period of time. we did rent a car so we could go to the restaurants and explore the island a bit more. Again, the owners have recommendations for this and it was wonderful!!

Enjoy the privacy of a beachside villa with the convenience of resort living. We will greet you at the airport _ either in Nevis or St. Kitt _ and a rental car will await you at the villa, should you desire one. Start a tab at the neighboring Nisbet Plantation beach club for award winning meals and beach side drinks. Meals can also be prepared in your fully equipped kitchen.

This is one of few beachfront properties with a pool. It is located on the most desirable part of the island, convenient to the many places Nevis has to explore; hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, biking, golf and tennis and some of the best food in the carribean.

We have been exploring Nevis for over 15 years and would be delighted to share our experiences with you

Golf: The Robert Trent Jones II course at the Four Season Resort is world famous and a short drive away.

The course provides a dramatic view of the Resort, the Caribbean and the neighboring island of St. Kitts.
