Spectacular private 3 x king guest suite villa with ocean & sunset views
About Gareth Lloyd
I live with my partner Kathy in Bath, UK. When we are not helping ensure that our guests have the best possible experience of their stay at our home from home on Nevis, we can be found running, cycling and pursuing other vain attempts to hold back the years!
Gareth Lloyd purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Gareth Lloyd chose Jessups Village
We settled on a second home on Nevis after many years of travelling to different Caribbean islands. Nevis for us was - and still is - the anthithesis of 'life in the fast lane'. We hope that you too get to experience what we mean.
What makes this Villa unique
We loved the idea of being so close to a great resort and all of its facilities in such an incredible location. Yet, at the same time, we valued our privacy & a more personalised vacation space with a level of luxury and a set of amenities that would be second to none.

The villa itself and surrounding pool / grounds are fantastic - you may not want to ever leave. The view to the water is drop-dead gorgeous. The house is large, clean and well maintained with lots of useful technology including music and high speed internet everywhere inside and out. The gym downstairs was a nice touch as well. On top of all of this Gareth and Steve (local manager) were fantastic hosts -- available around the clock as needed and full of great information and advice. We'll be back for sure!
We enjoyed our stay at The Retreat from April 13-23rd. Gareth the owner and property manager Steve were both easy to deal with and very helpful. Gareth is very quick to respond to any questions. The house is beautiful, well kept and spacious. It is located just above the four seasons golf course and is quiet and pleasant to unwind and relax at.. The pool and ocean views were beautiful and as previously stated in several reviews, the pictures do not do them justice. The house was well stocked with all needed kitchen supplies and bathrooms with plenty of towels and bathrobes. The Sonos system throughout house is wonderful and works all the lights, music blinds and thermostat. I especially enjoyed eating breakfast out on the upper porch over looking pool with ocean view while watching the hummingbirds and monkeys. We used a driver for the week. Highly recommend this. Hollywood was wonderful and very polite and friendly. The island of Nevis is quiet and beautiful without the hustle and bustle of cruise ships and constant peddlers. We enjoyed the beautiful beaches and dinners as well as breakfast at several old sugar plantations including Golden Rock and Hermitage Plantation. Sunshine’s and Limes was also enjoyable for lunch at the beach. But our favorite beaches were at The Yachtsman where they had nice loungers and great lunch. We also liked Cades beach and resteraunt I also highly recommend a personal power cat boat snorkel trip rather than Catamaran. We did both and the snorkel with private guide far surpassed the catarman trip. I highly recommend The Retreat. The house was everything it advertised to be and more, the transfers were all arranged and quite easy and the house is located high enough in the hills to enjoy the views and mountain ( hill) side of island and then short drive down to enjoy the beach. So you get the best Of both worlds.
We had the pleasure of staying at The Retreat for one week in April 2018. The house was fantastic, with all amenities as described on the website. The house is in a fantastic location, allowing for plenty of access to the island’s beauty.
The owner, Gareth and the property manager, Steve were amazing hosts, and even helped to coordinate a rehearsal dinner at The Retreat for my son’s wedding. They were constantly available to us whenever we needed assistance and went above and beyond for the entire week.
I would absolutely recommend staying at The Retreat, and would not hesitate to go again. Thank you for a brilliant experience.
Thank you so much for this and we hope that the week on Nevis was a joyful experience for all and that the memories will stay with your family and friends forever. We would love to see photos of the party if you have any that wouldn’t embarrass anyone too much! LOL. Hope to see you and the family back for a special anniversary celebration sometime! All the best - Gareth & The Retreat team.
Beautiful, Very Special Villa
The Retreat is just beautiful, inside and out. Our experience was that the Villa was very much like staying in a luxury hotel, along with the benefit of total privacy. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked , the view is amazing and there are several different outdoor areas where you can gather as a group or find a beautiful corner to for some quiet time. The owner, Gareth is extremely responsive and easy to deal with, as is the entire staff. I highly recommend The Retreat. We had a fabulous time and it really is as beautiful as it looks on the website. A very special place for sure.
Wow, breathtaking home, view & gardens.
A stunning property with a fantastic panoramic view, the web pictures don’t do it justice and a lush garden beautifully landscaped that is a delight to walk through & watch monkeys & hummingbirds etc. Breakfast, lunch or dinner on the terrace is a joy! Every comfort is catered for & there is also a very well equipped kitchen or for an extra special treat it can be arranged for a chef to come & cook dinner at the house, a fabulous experience & one we will remember. The quality of the surround sound system is sublime & adds to the ambience. It certainly is a retreat where you can unwind, swim, sunbathe etc as well as having easy access to other island activities & the beach. The feeling of space, light & freedom abound. A magical place to celebrate my Mum’s 80th. The owner Gareth & house manager Steve aim to make sure all your needs are met. Just switch to island time & relax. We would love to return. Thanks Gareth for sharing this gem, best wishes Stephanie, Bob, Ingrid & Dom.
This house is fantastic in every way. The views are gorgeous and the pool is perfect. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and well appointed. Beds are very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need including a great espresso machine. The house was stocked with plenty of beer and terrific wines. The house is very modern, with dedicated control services in every room. Decor is modern and tasteful. Gareth is wonderful- very responsive and helpful with every question and concern. He was attentive to every detail throughout our stay. We could not have asked for a better host. On island, our driver and house manager were excellent. We enjoyed spending time with them and exploring Nevis. Their kindness and hospitality were heartwarming. I highly recommend The Retreat and would return tomorrow if I could. This property is one of a kind, and Gareth and his crew are exceptional.
The Retreat is a split level property in a prime central location sitting up on a ridge in 1 acre of private grounds, adjacent to the Four Seasons golf course and estate with 180 degree views. It is a short 4 minute drive down the road to ocean-side Mangos restaurant, 5 minutes to Sunshine's and the bars and eateries at Pinney's Beach and a further 5 minutes on to the main grocery stores in town. In the other direction it is 6 minutes to the restaurants Yachtsman Grill, Indian Summer and Coconut Grove.
