Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath, with views, private pool and close to beaches

Tucked into the hillside 250 feet above the sea, a 5 minute walk to the beach, this private 2 bedroom villa with pool offers stunning views and a fabulous retreat away from it all. The villa offers never ending gorgeous views over the Narrows toward the South Penninsula and mountains on St Kitt's together with fabulous indoor and outdoor living space including a private pool, fully screened porch with dining table and second large living area.

We have had wonderful year after year return guests (some as long as 12 years) stay at the Villa over the past years, so there have been years when the Villa was completely booked and we have not had it posted on VRBO. As life situations change for people, this winter we have some weeks available so we have again been able to post on VRBO/Homeaway. As a result of this being considered a "new listing" again, VRBO does not provide the opportunity to transfer reviews from past years. And since our returning guests book directly with us, they do not have an opportunity to post a review. We look forward to posting reviews later this year after welcoming some newly booked guests.

The villa is located in one of the most exclusive areas on the island on Ridge Road. The location is within 500 yards of Oualie Beach, and, 1 KM or less of 3 other beaches,. In addition the Villa is located close to some of the best restaurants on the island including Four Season's Hotel, Nisbet Plantation, Coconut Grove, the beautifully renovated and expanded The Gin Trap is just around the corner, and Oualie Beach Hotel with all the water sport and cycling amenities is available at the bottom of the road.

Perched on the hill and surrounded by tropical gardens, the location of the villa affords both the wonderful trade winds and offers fabulous views from almost anywhere in the house: when sitting on the screened in porch; on the pool deck; from the bedrooms; and, from the inside living area.

The villa is built in a traditional caribbean style with extra large window openings that are fully screened to provide wonderful ventilation and cooling breezes through out the house. In addition, the villa has large ceiling fans through out and 2 additional fans with lights in the outside screened in porch area if needed. We usually have wonderful gentle trade winds in addition to all the vegetation around the villa that keeps things cool. The villa is decorated with a mix of antique and contempary furniture and the works a variety of local artists.

The great room was completely renovated in 2015 with quartz tile floors, new kitchen cabinetry, and Silestone counter tops. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with high-end appliances including Bosch dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, 4 burner gas stove, refrigerator with automatic ice maker, blender, coffee maker, mixer, salad spinner, ice cream maker, baking trays and a number of other kitchen cooking utensils. There is also a separate filtered water spigot on the main kitchen sink that also supplies the water to the ice-cube maker in the freezer – that is capable of filtering out Cholera and Giardia (Beaver Fever). We have never had any problems with the island water (the house has the government treated water) but if anyone has a sensitive stomach when traveling, the filtered water is a wonderful convenience. In addition, we have a gas BBQ grill outside as well as a hammock. There is also a washer & dryer in the lower level if you want to use them during your stay.

The bedrooms are on either side of the great room and are essentially the same. The master bedroom has a king size bed, and the guest bedroom has 2 twin beds that can be easily put together and set up as a king size bed. Both bedrooms have a 3-piece ensuite bathroom (that was updated in 2016) and a walk in closet. The villa also comes fully equipped with quality linens and towels including beach towels to enjoy during your stay. Cable TV, wifi internet and guest cell phone are also provided. Weekly housekeeping is provided for stays longer than 1 week.

In terms of the beaches, all the beaches are public on Nevis, and lots of people not staying in the hotel use the Oualie Beach Hotel beach area and as long as the hotel is not really busy and if you order something to drink or eat they would be very happy that you are there. We also have some little beach chairs that you can use to take to the beach while you are here too. In addition, Chri-Shi Beach Restaurant is just 1 mile from the cottage heading toward town and has a fabulous beach area, offers wonderful yoga and boot camp classes in the morning and fabulous lunches 7 days a week, as well as recently offering movie nights once a week and dinner on the weekends.

There are a number of beach bar restaurants on Pinney's Beach (next to the Four Season's Hotel) that are less than 4 miles away toward town including Lime, Double Deuce, Turtle Time, and Sunshine's which all offer something a little different.

In planning your travel to Nevis, there are flights direct into Nevis, but if you are arriving to Nevis from St Kitt’s there are a number of ferries available to get you over to Nevis. In addition, there are private water taxis we can help you arrange to take from the South Penninsula of St Kitt's that bring you directly to the dock at Oualie Beach where we will meet you and bring you up the hill to the villa. When we are not on island, we have an absolutely wonderful property manager (Sonia Cornelius), who is a great resource on Nevis. She will meet you when you arrive in Nevis and bring you up to the villa and give you a quick orientation of things. It is a 10 minute taxi ride from St. Kitt’s airport to the main ferry docks in Basseterre, then about a 40 minute ferry ride to Nevis (depending on the ferry you get on).  Or the private water taxi is a 25 minute taxi ride to the South Penninsula on St Kitt's and a 5 minute water taxi ride over to Nevis.

We are always available to our guests during their stay - we are just a phone call away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I spent 2 weeks in Feburary at the Round Hill Cottage while thoroughly enjoying activities on Nevis. The cottage is bright and cheerful, well furnished and nicely decorated with pictures and small art pieces. We ate our meals on the screened in porch which doubles as a sitting area overlooking Oulie Beach resort. We appreciated having cable TV and high speed internet connection to maintain contact with friends and dealing with important matters at home that needed attention. We were very happy staying at the cottage and hope to do it again!

Beyond high expectations

  • 5 of 5

We had high hopes for our stay in Nevis based on photos and previous reviews.However,these expectations were far exceeded. The villa is perfectly situated with spectacular views looking over to St. Kitts.Photos do not do it justice. The house is beautifully decorated with multiple unique touches and extremely well equipped..There is utter privacy.Paula and Lynn go above and beyond in arranging rental car,transfers,water taxi,providing starter supplies in the refrigerator ,etc. Paula and Lynn also supply great advice regarding restaurants,beaches,etc.They are also easy to reach and quickly responsive if any needs arise.Nevis itself is quite easy to get around and find various locales(beaches,restaurants ,etc.)We have made about a dozen trips to different Caribbean islands in the past and have always gone to different ones. We now may need to make an exception to our rule as it is difficult to imagine any place topping this one.

Favorite Villa on Nevis

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at Round Hill five times over the past eight years. We keep coming back because the house is beautifully maintained and immaculate, and has one of the best views on the island. The villa has two large bedrooms with plenty of storage space. The living room is adjacent to a well equipped kitchen. The furnishings are very comfortable. Our favorite place is the screened in porch which includes a comfortable living area and a dining room table. On a hot afternoon, it is nice to spend time in the pool which is outside of the screened in porch.

The owners, Lynn and Paula, live next door and are wonderful hosts. If you have a question about the island or the house, they are there to help.

We have been before to Nevis, but never before have we been so well taken care of.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we landed, when Paula was there to meet us, until the morning we left, when she was there to see us off, we never lacked for anything. The villa is sparkling clean, everything works as it should, the view is spectacular, and even though some locals grow tired of them, the monkeys, playing right on our deck, were a delight. Our first night, we were tired and unsure of what to do next. No problem the fridge was already stocked with snacks, beer, soda and even a bottle of champagne to celebrate our anniversery! Wow! Later, during the week we had drinks with Paula and Lynn (husband), who we now consider to be our good friends. They are just great people. We got around the island in a rental car, (driving there is a lot of fun, especially if you are not used to driving on 'that' side of the road), which was arranged by (of course) Paula, and supplied by a really nice guy named Gajor. So easy, when it was time to leave, "just leave the car at the airport, I'll get it".

Location of the villa is super, just down the road is Oualie beach, where locals play music, every kind of water stuff can be had, and water taxis leave for St Kitts. Nothing on the island is far, but Charlestown is close, and lots of beach eateries and restaurants are a short drive.

Never needed air conditioning, the breezes kept us comfortable night and day, and because the unit is fully screened, insects were a non problem. If we were on the deck, watching the monkeys or just sunning and reading, the pool provided a quick cooling down.

If you are planning a trip to Nevis, and this place is available, don't think twice, grab it.

You'll be glad you did.

Barefoot Living at its Best!

  • 5 of 5

We have returned to Round Hill villa several times over the past six years and every time we have absolutely loved it! Paula and Lynn, the owners, are wonderful and more than willing to help with anything you need. The house works perfectly for two couples, or alternatively, parents with two children as the guest room can be made up as either two single beds or a king. Surrounded by lush foliage, the property feels very secluded. The bedrooms, both with ensuites, are at either end of the light-filled open concept kitchen/family room and long wrap-around verandah, allowing for privacy as well as comfortable, communal living space. Spotlessly clean, and simply but fully equipped, the villa is bright, sunny, and spacious. We really appreciated the comfortable king size bed and all the lovely sheets and linens but more than anything we loved the open air feel of the place, the seamless flow between indoors and out, and the beautiful views across the water to St Kitts from the screened-in front porch and patio. It was a treat being able to dine 'al fresco' night after night and being an avid swimmer, the lap pool was a big plus!

The location on the island is great - close to excellent restaurants, beaches, and music nights at Oualie - lots to do in walking/biking distance, however, to get around all of Nevis it is definitely good to have a car. This is something Paula and Lynn have always helped us arrange so it is there on arrival.

Round Hill villa is the perfect get-away for simple, casual but warm and gracious living.
