The rainbows, the sunsets, the hummingbirds, the monkeys, the smell of the gardens. This place is heaven on earth! Peter & Louise were absolutely wonderful! If you are looking for peace & quiet, complete and total privacy and a place to decompress this is it! The pictures don't do it justice. We left the house once a day to get out but could absolutely stay put if you really wanted to. Restaurants are not very far away either. Perfect location! Will definitely return!
Had the most amazing time at this lovely villa! At the top of the steep, rocky road is the most gorgeous house ever, surrounded by beautiful tropical plants. The views... breath taking is an understatement. You can see across to St. Kitts and in the distance St. Barths. Lying by the pool - the blues of the pool, the ocean and the sky, the peace and quiet is incredible, so calming. The deck is huge and super comfortable for lounging, with sofas and a chaise but if you'd rather be inside there is a wall of glass doors that open up so that you can still enjoy the amazing views. Peter and Louise are the perfect hosts - able to answer any questions and full of recommendations as to where to eat out, etc. We did venture out for a couple of meals but really, who wants to leave this place?! Cannot recommend it highly enough - you will want for nothing at this special place!
Freshly back from our stay at Coccoloba, and that amazing view is seared into our brains forever. The way the infinity pool blends into the Caribbean Sea is breathtaking. We could not stop staring at the amazing view and especially loved the sunset reflection in the pool. This place is perfectly appointed, perfectly laid out, perfectly designed, and even perfectly provisioned (basic groceries to start!). Several days, we opted not to leave at all. The open-window wall is an amazing feature. Opening the house every morning and having coffee in the midst of the 180 degree water view was truly special. Not to mention the espresso machine and milk frother! We found nowhere else on the island we liked better. Peter and Louise were very easy to work with and so friendly and helpful! They made the transfers from the airport to water taxi to car rental simple and seamless. I cannot say enough about the entire experience. Nevis is remote and it was a bit of an adventure as we drove around the island seeking out many delightful restaurants. We truly felt a world away, but that world away was indeed, luxurious. Wi-fi, a local cell phone, satellite TV etc . . . we were as connected as we wanted to be. We were 2 adults with a teenaged son and between us we read 10 books, took 5 naps, cared for the 2 cats, watched at least 4 monkeys in the surrounding trees every day, and deepened our tans significantly. If you are considering it, book Coccoloba now. You will not be sorry.
Coccoloba is the perfect locus whence to enjoy Nevesian paradise!
We returned for our 3rd thoroughly delightful week-long visit to this glorious one-in-a-million luxury lodging.
EXTERIOR: We were enticed by the long (~12 meter shallow-to-deep) sparklingly clear fresh-water pool. Spectacular underwater lighting invites repetitive nighttime swims. Credit brilliant siting; its infinity-edge disappears into the Caribbean. Extensive tile decking surrounds the pool and villa for endless outdoor relaxing. We never wanted to leave this beautiful hilltop eyrie, with views to die for. Sunsets are enthralling on the western horizon. Attractive terraced tropical gardens, occasionally visited by fascinating native vervet monkeys, complete the enchanting setting. A fully featured propane-fired barbecue grille is available on the exterior deck. Importantly for us, the villa accords tranquil 360-degree total privacy.
INTERIOR: A unusually spacious open floor-plan flows seamlessly from indoors to outdoors. We enjoyed many meals on the cool covered veranda, that overlooks the channel separating St Kitts and Nevis. (Note: excellent restaurants are less than 15 min away; see TripAdvisor reviews.) Furnishings are top-drawer contemporary with lots of natural wood. The large tiled designer bathrooms are fitted with very large high-tech showers. Bedrooms and the great room feature room-wide 2-meter-tall glass door-panels, which fully open onto the pool deck. So you feel outside even whilst inside enjoying pleasing zephyrs wafting through.
All appliances are new top-of-the-line; kitchen is over-kitted with cookware, tableware, cappuccino-maker and every other utensil or gadget that you could desire. A/C is limited to the bedrooms, but we used infrequently preferring the breezes and sounds of the lush environment. Overhead fans abound.
Maid and pool service is mid-week. The villa is spotlessly clean throughout.
GENERAL: Owners Peter & Louise are so friendly, helpful and fully knowledgeable. They efficiently organised local transport—land and water taxis to/from SKB airport and a perfect on-island hired self-drive vehicle. Thanks to the owners, these logistics were effortless. Since they live/work but a few km away, they're promptly available if needed. WiFi/Internet is good for Nevis. Ask Peter to explain their entertainment systems. 70+ cable TV channels with additional stored media and DVD libraries. Two small cute and affectionate cats reside. The 1/2-km private road steeply climbing to the villa is daunting, but managed with our 4WD.
The website pictures are accurate, but cannot convey the magnificent ambiance nor luxurious privacy—over-the-top. We want to come back again and again.
This is the second time we have spent a week at Coccoloba - we loved even more than the first. The view is the best on Nevis - the infinity pool and the sea merge into one seamless panorama of blue. The bedrooms are large, the beds big and comfortable; the bathrooms have great showers and the kitchen well-equipped, with large American fridge and all the gadgets you could possibly want. As far as location goes, it is handy for all the best beaches, restaurants and bars, yet serenely above it all - no noise. A truly wonderful experience that never disappoints.
