Lazy Turtle Villa, near Nisbet Plantation, on the beach!

Bedrooms 2
Space 2,000 sq ft
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

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 our 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 gazebo where you can sit and watch the ocean.

Our bedrooms feature Nevisian style mahogany beds. 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 New Castle

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.

Nevis is a unique island. Nevisians are known for their friendly smiles and welcome to visitors. Nevis is special with only about 12,000 people, no high rise buildings (nothing taller than a palm tree allowed), no large cruise ships, no gambling.

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.

perfect vacation/villa

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from staying at the Lazy Turtle for two weeks {4/8/17-4/22/17}. Lazy Turtle was just perfect for our needs. The villa was clean, comfortable and the housekeeper, Carmen, could not have been nicer and she did a wonderful job cleaning the villa several times while we were there. The pool, although not a full size pool, was just perfect for our needs and it was a short walk to the beach where the villa is located. One of the best features of the villa is the large screened in porch. This was great as the no-see-ums love my wife but staying in the screened in porch in the evening was great as no bugs were able to get through the screens. Jane and her husband were wonderful providing us local information on some places to eat, shop and hike.

We would certainly stay at the Lazy Turtle again and highly recommend this to others.

Magical Ultimate Privacy w/ Spectacular Views!

  • 5 of 5

"Never leave Us Nevis"-- I'm back AGAIN with Friends!

I've stayed now in 3 of Janes 4... Twice alone (conch Shell April 14). Hint go alone or rent all 3/4 of janes homes & have everyone you love w you--- but seperate!

THIS house is the ultimate for connecting w natures BEST! From the lovely gazebo you can see 180 -Mt Nevis,St Kitts,and your own private beach!

Stars gazing is spectacular! We had the SNOW (full) moon. Fall asleep w warm (75)trade winds & serenade of small tree frogs. No need for AC (it had it in Master bedroom) back home 6 inches of snow!! Yuk!

Wake up to soft trade wind breezes & the soft bleating of sheep as they come to pasture outside your fenced property.

Walk quietly up the road you will see Monkeys,goats,occasionally cows.

The gardens are a horticulturist dream come true!

Snorkeling down to right is nice made-made coral reef. Small but nice variety of fish. Bring your snorkel!

sea glass, shards from old ruins can be found on beach if you look very carefully!

Pictures simply don't do it justice!

The house inside is SO clean! Carmen the maid does a lovely job. Linens & towels are provided. mattresses are very comfortable.

Bathrooms are updated and very private in floor layout.

The screened in porch with its hammocks, large dining table comfy seating and loungers was a great fun space.

The pool was my favorite spot! Water perfectly maintained & great for my bad back! You could float on pool loungers or swim/exercise w lots of space!

The painter provided us w lovely FRESH coconuts & demonstrated how they cut them open quickly for the fresh milk & jelly. Bananas (tiny) are soooo much tastier!

This home had NO bugs-anywhere! Ok Jane How do you do that?!?!? Even @ home I get occasional stink bugs! NO bugs or sand!!! CLEAN!

This is a true heaven on earth! All/any of

Jane & Ron's places are always in high demand. Rent immediately or they will be GONE! Sometimes a year wait! They all are extremely clean,well appointed, and most of all Jane has chosen and maintains a "team" w/professionalism unlike no other! Her private homes have top notch resort amenities but in a PRIVATE & PERSONAL setting with individual service and attention to the smallest of detail.

Thank you Jane,Ron

Warm regards to Marlin,Daisy,Carmen, Bonnie!

Beautiful and restful

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Lazy Turtle for a week and could not have been happier. It has the most beautiful island view from the lovely pool. Just down the lawn past the palm trees is the ocean, and from the gazebo you can see St. Kitts. The owner organizes your arrival with ease. You will be met at the airport on St. Kitts, transported via comfortable van to the dock, and then it is a 6 minute ferry ride to Nevis. The island itself is quite small and rural. There are upscale restaurants on the island, (by rental car or taxi) and also funky beach places like Sunshine's, serving a rum punch called the Killer Bee. Jane is able to answer all your questions about places to go and how to get there, but the beauty of the Lazy Turtle is that you will be happy to stay put, reading on the screened porch or by the pool! We swam and snorkeled right off the beach and saw blue tangs and other tropical fish. It's a small area for snorkeling, but free and enjoyable!

The house itself is very clean, with a well equipped kitchen. Beds were comfortable and the living area is just right for a couple or small family.

I'm hoping to go back soon and would stay at the Lazy Turtle again quite happily.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

I apologize for taking this long to write this review ,however, I would highly recommend this villa for anyone staying in Nevis, Correspondences was easy and highly informational. From the taxi driver meeting us at the airport, to the water taxi and Marlon's wife meeting us for the rental car all details were handled by Jane. The villa was perfect for us. Loved the openness and liming in the patio on the hammocks. The grounds were spectacular and the pool refreshing at the end of an eventful day. Also being right next door to Nisbet Plantation was a nice, from having lunch there on multiple occasions(my 10yo son loved there smoothies) to the BBQ diner on Thursday night. Again loved the Lazy Turtle my hope is stay there again there soon. Cant say enough positive things about Nevis or the people.

Sunshine's Beach Bar
Car: recommended

Nevis is a unique island. Nevisians are known for their friendly smiles and welcome to visitors. Nevis is special with only about 12,000 people, no high rise buildings (nothing taller than a palm tree allowed), no large cruise ships, no gambling.

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 's_ 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 Caribbean.

The villa is adjacent to Herbert's beach, a world famous kite surfing beach.

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.
