Our return to the lovely Lazy Turtle
My husband and I visited Nevis for the first time five years ago, and we loved our stay at the Lazy Turtle. What a perfect location! The beach front and private pool make this cottage really special. The huge screened porch brings the beauty of the tropical foliage, palm trees, and sea views right into the cottage, and ocean breezes bring rest and relaxation as soon as you arrive. Jane is the warmest owner/host we've ever met, and she has everything prepared to make your stay perfect--from your arrival at the airport, to the cottage, and back to the airport on departure. She goes beyond "concierge," and truly treats her guests as family and friends. We got oriented to Nevis with an island tour from Marlon Brando, who also rents vehicles, and we learned of a local place to buy fish as well as fresh produce. We only cooked in the cottage one night, because Nevis has SO many fabulous dining choices, but our dinner was delicious--grilled snapper with a tomato-cucumber salsa. Being next door to Nisbet Plantation is ideal, as you simply set up an account with them and can pop over for lunch or beach front drinks anytime. Definitely go to the Thursday night beach BBQ at Nisbet--live music, dancing, and incredible food, including five types of seafood on the grill. They also serve great breakfasts, which we did once, then we bought breakfast foods at the grocery to last for the week. Our favorite lunch place is Golden Rock Inn---go for the lobster salad, and take your camera for incredible photos of the lush grounds. Another highlight is Bananas---worth it for lunch and again for dinner. Nevis is a lovely little island with an "old Caribbean" feel, and staying at the Lazy Turtle instead of in a hotel lets you enjoy being an islander, if only for a while. We hope to return to Lazy Turtle for another wonderful week. If you go to Nevis, this is the place to stay~enjoy!
