About this listing
Located on the tiny unspoilt Caribbean island of Nevis, Calamansi is a modern 3-bedroomed villa with panoramic views of the Atlantic and Caribbean. It has a private pool, A/C in the bedrooms, and all windows and verandah are full fly-screened.
The property is located in a half-acre garden, andis only a 5 minute drive away from beautiful white sandy beaches which are often deserted. It is located near Mount Nevis Hotel, on a small, quiet, private development. There are 3 bedrooms, two with queen-sized beds (with ensuite bathrooms) and 1 with twin beds (with 3rd bathroom adjoining). There is a fully equipped kitchen, a screened verandah and a gas barbecue. All rooms have sea and mountain views and fly-screened windows. Wireless internet and cable tv are also available.
Nevis has numerous historical sites to visit, and a hot spring, as well as many plantation inns and more informal places to eat.
Guests have access to the whole property apart from a lock-up cupboard in the master bedroom. Facilities include cable tv and WiFi, No amenities are shared with other properties. Smoking is not allowed in the villa, but is permitted in the verandah and on the deck.
Interaction with Guests
I will keep in constant contact with potential guests via email or telephone. I will not be present during the guest's stay but have a local manager who will be available to organise meet and greet, car hire if required, and provide help and advice as required.
The neighbourhood is very quiet and well-maintained. We love the views and the tranquility, especially chilling in the pool with a cold beer. We have great neighbours, too.
There are many taxis and local minibuses which you can hail like buses. If you hire a car, we recommend a 4WD - the main road round the island is quite reasonable but many of the other tracks are very rough.
There is parking available in a car port inside the garden.
Our local manager will arrange to meet guests either at the ferry/airport, or at the villa, depending on requirements.
Other Things to Note
Visitors always remark on how friendly the people on Nevis are and how welcome they are made to feel.
We expect our guests to use the AC responsibly as electricity is prohibitively expensive on the island - the ceiling fans are very efficient. We do not allow pets. Smoking is not allowed in the villa but is allowed on the verandah and the deck. Guests must not leave the garden gates open at any time (local animals like goats, donkey and cows will get in and eat the plants). Children and non-swimmers should be supervised in the pool at all times - we recommend that there is always at least one other person in or near the pool if someone is using it. We expect the house and garden to be left in a reasonably clean state at the end of the visit, although used linen and towels may, of course, be left.
About the Host, Sue
My husband and I live in small village in rural Lincolnshire and visit our second home in Nevis whenever we can tear ourselves away from our twin 2-yea-old grand-daughters.
We like other people to be able to use our wonderful villa in Nevis, and try to keep our prices affordable for families.
