Guestbook comments from the owner

We picked a winner! Too Much Nice was everything we had hoped and much more. We were awed by the beautiful views of St. Kitts, gorgeous sunsets and three very picturesque rainbows. The property itself is very well appointed and maintained with a nice variety of tropical plantings.

There were days that we didn’t leave the porch and pool. On the days that we ventured out, we always looked forward to returning to our own little world at Too Much Nice. We did enjoy exploring the island, it's beaches and restaurants. Our favorite restaurants were Golden Rock Inn, Chrisi Beach and Yachtsman Grill.

A stay at Too Much Nice is something that we have on our “bucket list” to do again.

A slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

TooMuchNice was our idea of a little slice of heaven. We spent 3 weeks there in August. The owner, Julie, was extremely helpful from the initial enquiry to the day we left the island to come home. The villa is beautiful and the views are breath taking. The villa has a very well equipped kitchen, the bedrooms are large and airy (with a lovely breeze coming off from the veranda). My 6 year old daughter was particularly taken by the huge bath tub with optional 'disco' lights! We spent most of our time sitting by the pool, cooking on the barbecue and generally enjoying the sights and sounds around us (which included daily visits from the monkeys in the neighbouring garden).

The island is small and easy to get around (Julie arranged car hire for us) and its easy to find a grocers if you want to do your own cooking. Alternately there are some fabulous restaurants - Chrishi Beach Club, a 5 minute drive from the villa, very appealing decor, light and airy, a very tasty and varied menu with the added bonus of a beautiful beach on your doorstep. We also ate at Golden Rock Plantation Inn (I highly recommend the lobster sandwich) which is set in beautiful surroundings. Julie leaves a folder in the villa with all the recommended restaurants and attractions and it was very helpful.

There is plenty to see and do on the island - we went snorkelling, horse back riding, deep sea fishing, all of which were highly enjoyable. I would also recommend having a dip in the Bath Springs near Charlestown, a super steaming- hot tiled pool of spring water warmed by the island's volcano. I came out of there feeling like a new woman!

We had a truly wonderful time and I would not hesitate to recommend TooMuchNice and Nevis itself to anyone. None of us wanted to leave!

Our piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time on Nevis. We searched on VRBO for places to stay on the island and finally decided on TooMuchNice. No question we made the right choice. This place was perfect! During our week we saw other places for future places to stay but no question we love TooMuchNice due to being clean, beautiful, and private! The transfer from plane, boat taxi, and the house went so smoothly! (Thank you Julie and Ian.) Getting back to the airport was the same; which is a huge plus. The taxi driver to the boat gave us hints of the do’s and don’ts. For example (and you will forget): Drive on the left! Be observant. Drivers like to stop on either side of the road. Why?....ummmm….just because. So again, be observant. Overall though, there were no worries. The taxi boat was great by supplying beverages during the quick trip to the island. Ian was right, he was waiting at the dock to take us to the house. He is very pleasant, informative, and answered all of our questions.

The property is absolutely beautiful with the exquisite landscaping! The layout of the house and balcony was fantastic along with the private pool area. With the heat and humidity, the pool was the focal point for our relaxation. The house is located on the hillside so we had great breezes. We kept all the doors open for the breeze when we were there. At night we closed up the house and the bedroom quickly cooled down with the a/c for perfect sleeping.

It is priority to bring suntan lotion and bug spray. The mosquitoes were minimal on the island but when we got bit, the bites would welt up. So, simply make sure to spray yourself throughout the day to be safe.

The kitchen is well supplied for cooking. The gas grill was definitely used. There are local grocery stores but be prepared that each store will supply different items. For example, some will only have frozen meats, etc. You need to go to each store and then learn where best to pick up items.

We went to various restaurants.

Bananas: Good

Indian Summer: Excellent!!!

Yachtsman Grill: Good

The Rocks: Good (Excellent landscaping)

Chrishi Beach Club: Excellent!!! The burger/fries was beyond fantastic. We are still trying to figure out how thee fries stayed hot until the last bite.

Four Seasons: Excellent morning brunch.

Steve and I have traveled a lot. When we return to the area, we totally agree TooMuchNice will be our destination!

Our Dream Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this beautiful villa on Nevis. Both stays at TooMuchNice exceeded our expectations. The villa is very well maintained and clean. We couldn't help but notice the improvements made to the grounds and furnishings. My husband enjoyed drinking his early morning coffee up in the newly added gazebo where he could take in the panoramic views of not only the turquoise water but also majestic Mt. Nevis. The views of St. Kitts from the pool area are also absolutely beautiful. It's a place that you can't help but find relaxing and scenic. We were fortunate to see the monkeys playing daily in the neighborhood. We also discovered that the monkeys are very active between 4-5pm so we took daily strolls around the neighborhood to observe them. The baby monkeys were everywhere and we had so much fun watching them play. There is also a walk you can take off the back road near the villa that takes you to a few old sugar cane relics. We waited five years between visits but we have already decided we will wait no longer than 2 years before returning. We can't imagine staying anywhere else on Nevis than this beautiful villa. Our favorite restaurants are - Bananas, Mango's, Sunshine's (for a Killer Bee) and Golden Rock. Be sure to take the beach chairs over to nearby Paradise Beach for the day. It's one of the most beautiful beaches we've ever visited! Julie, we can't thank you enough for making our stay so pleasant and for the smooth arrangements for our transport to and from St. Kitts airport to your lovely villa. A very dreamy place to chill and we are so thankful for you sharing your lovely home with us! No photo can do this place justice. There is just too much beauty to take in.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five was lucky enough to spend our Christmas holiday on the island of Nevis at this perfect home. Our boys were a little nervous about being away from home at Christmas but the trip went so smoothly and our stay was so perfect that they want to do it every year! Julie was so helpful from our first inquiry email. She helped to organize the transfers from the airport to the water taxi to Nevis. The helpful house manager met us at the dock and took us to the house where our car was waiting in the driveway! She even made sure that there was a little Christmas tree and lights to welcome us to their home. The pictures do not do the house justice. Every morning I would have my coffee looking at Nevis peak and every night a sun downer as the sun set into the ocean. The house is perfectly set up and was very spacious for our family of five. One tip that I wish we had followed earlier was that we should have shut the sliding doors before the sunset. We left them wide open the first couple of nights before bed and were eaten alive in bed even with the mosquito nets. It was fine after we started following that tip. The monkeys really do come visit in the mornings. One day there must have been a troop of 40 monkeys in the neighbour's trees -so entertaining for the boys! Despite the house being so inviting -with so many great novels there to read- we went exploring most days. We loved Pinney's Beach and ate a Lime (awesome food), Sunshines (the Killer Bee "stung" us a couple of times, but it is very entertaining to watch the cruise ship people get "stung" too) Walk down in front of the Four Season and go snorkeling in front of their breakers -we saw a sea turtle, sting rays and lots of pretty fish. We enjoyed Chrisiti Beach as well (very close to the house) and the waves were fun. The sunbeds are lovely and it is a wonderful place to spend the day. We tried to hike The Source -but it is really far for little legs-but still fun! Christmas Eve was spent at Golden Rock -WOW!!! It was truly magical. Paradise Beach is definitely worth a visit, there aren't any restaurants but that is part of the charm. After parking, walk to the right and you will be in front of the resort where Prime Minister Trudeau holidayed with his family! I highly recommend TooMuchNice -but, don't go at Christmas because I want to go then;)

What a great week!

  • 5 of 5

Too Much Nice is one of the better villas we have stayed at on Nevis. The property is well maintained, has plenty of deck area around the pool, and there is lots of shade under the veranda. The kitchen is well equipped and overall the property captures great breezes. Both the Julie and local property manager, Ian, were very responsive and accommodating. Overall it was a great place to stay and we will likely be going back for our next vacation!

Superb in all Ways

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Much Too Nice for 10 nights on our honeymoon. The house was ideally located with spectacular sunset views, with quiet and privacy to spare. Everything worked well - kitchen, bath, bedroom - and was quite comfortable. But the best was the pool and outside space - perfect for a post-beach plunge. We were well-taken care of by the owners and the property manager. And Nevis itself is a real treat. We will be back someday.
