    Where to Stay On Nevis


Nevis hotels range from the primitive Hurricane Cove Bungalows to the mid-range Mount Nevis Hotel, to the expensive Four Seasons.  It is much more enjoyable and affordable to stay in one of the rental villas.  Ours, Calypso and Iris, are the best!  They offer stunning views of the sea and the beach below and beatiful sunsets from their spacious verandas (and from the beds), a pool, fully-equipped kitchens, large living rooms, and bedrooms with king-size beds. 

Our villas are located at Oualie Bay, overlooking Oualie Beach, one of the nicest and safest beaches on the island.  The secluded mile-long Lovers' Beach is around the corner, within a ten-minute walk.  The villas are two miles from the airport and six miles from Charlestown, the island's center of government and commerce.
