About Laura Craig
James and I have lived on Nevis since 1995, where we met, fell in love and married! We started our Landscape Architectural design firm on Nevis in 1998 and are still very active on the island and the Northern Leeward Islands. We now live part of the year in South West France.
Laura Craig purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Laura Craig chose Cliftons
Over the years we had always loved Red Hawk Ridge area because of the 360 degree views and in particular the view of Mount Nevis from this location. We purchased the land at Red Hawk Ridge in 2007 and begin building a year later.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our property is private and secluded with exceptional views to Mount Nevis, the Caribbean Sea and St Kitts.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Spectacular views, cool breezes and complete seclusion!
If you prefer seclusion, breathtaking views and dramatic spaces, then Les Oiseaux is for you! This was our first trip to Nevis, and we agree, we knocked it out of the park!
The grounds are surrounded by lush tropical foliage. Hummingbirds buzz between brightly colored leaves. A carpet of tropical spongy grass covers this elevated plateau. You will look down on the lights of Sister Saint Kitts as the Sun sets. You will witness every cruise ship leaving Charlestown, and from this elevated vantage, they almost seem appealing! ;)
The living space takes full advantage of its perch with windows in all directions. The roof overhang crates intimate outdoor living spaces. Almost Gothic, sliding glass doors, open on three sides, facing Saint Kitts. There are curtains for the bashful, but we never once pulled them. That's because we never once encountered another person beyond halfway up their hill.
We highly recommend Les Oiseaux. It made our first trip to Nevis a hard act to follow.

A unique and beautiful place
The only problem is the spotty internet. Otherwise, a beautiful place. We will be back!
We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Les Oiseaux! We understand the internet service on the island is being improved daily since the hurricanes and I'm happy to say our internet is working ok now. Kind regards, Laura
Perfect Honeymoon Cottage
We recently spent our stay on Nevis at this wonderful property. We decided it would be the ultimate honeymoon location. It is perched high on the summit of a hill with fantastic 360 degree views of the surrounding areas, from Mount Nevis behind the house, sunset views to the West and a breathtaking St. Kitts landscape. Speaking of landscaping, the entire grounds are landscaped with an incredible variety of plants, trees and flowers. The higher altitude with its stronger winds keep most of the bugs away, making it very pleasant, even in the heat of the day.
Inside the cottage is an absolute first class living area and kitchen. The huge windows can be opened on three sides for a true open air feeling. If that's too hot, it is fully air conditioned. We spent both mornings and evenings on the extremely comfortable outdoor furniture, eating breakfast and dinner outside with nature all around. Mahogany windows, floors, cabinets and trim give this cottage a first class look.
The owners, the Craigs, along with property manager Doreen were also outstanding, arranging our transportation from St. Kitts, a rental car and providing a huge trove of information about Nevis and its many attractions and restaurants.
Considering what you pay for resorts on Nevis, we consider this cottage a tremendous bargain and a true value for your travel dollar. When my son gets married, this may be where he goes for his honeymoon. There is no better seclusion than what this property provides.
Thank you for your kind review. We just love our "inside out" hideaway on Nevis and we're very happy you enjoyed this unique setting.
We would love to welcome you son and his fiancé for their honeymoon!
