“Excellent Low-Key Vacation Spot”

This is a great little house off the beaten path - literally and figuratively. There are excellent views of the Atlantic and St Kitts from the front of the house and Nevis Peak from the back. Lots of wildlife here - goats, monkeys, donkeys, birds....pretty entertaining! It was also fun being a mile or so from the airport- you could watch the small planes make approaches. The house is close to Mount Nevis hotel - you could literally throw a rock and hit it. It's also close to beaches. The pool is wonderful - we must have jumped in four or five times a day.

The owner is friendly and responsive. He arranged for the property manager to meet us at Oualie Beach and she led us right to the house - no muss or fuss. We couldn't have asked for an easier rental experience.

“Perfect Getaway”

This is my second time staying at this villa (and won't be my last). I live on St. Kitts and love coming over to Nevis for short getaways. This house is perfect for groups of friends or a few couples. It isn't right on the beach but the island is so small that it's an easy drive to any location. The view from the patio is beautiful and the pool is the icing on the cake. Not to mention the owners of the house are wonderful people, always accommodating and willing to work with your plans. I highly recommend staying here!!

Liked best: I love that it has a pool, a screened in patio for bug-free evenings outside, and love that there are three bathrooms and laundry on site.
Liked least: MAYBE the location, it can seem up and out of the way while driving there but it is so peaceful with a beautiful view that it's worth it.

“Gorgeous view”
Reviewed 12 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

If you would like to get a real sense of this lovely, safe and non-tourisy island, this property is the one to rent. You will need a car, as it is up a hillside and a fair walking distance to the main road (local rentall is easy and fairly inexpensive). The villa is situated in a safe, rural, pastoral location, overlooking the Caribbean sea, with a view of the most beautiful and sculptural hills of St. Kitts in the distance across "the Narrows". You can watch the parades of goats, then sheep, then monkeys. The villa has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, so appropriate for 2 to 6 people. Two bedrooms have double beds, and one has twin beds. Because it is in an elevated position, fresh breezes sweep through, eliminating the need for air conditioning, although the bedrooms are supplied with AC ( in three years of staying here we've never used it). There is a screened-in porch as well as a wide poolside patio with a large plunge pool (but only large enough for a few strokes). The pool is really nice to have after a hot afternoon exploring the island. The bathrooms are nice, and the kitchen, with frig and stove is adequate. The cooking utensils are OK, but not for gourmet meals - which are abundant anyway at restaurants on the island. There is maid service, pool maintenance and grass cutting once a week.

Very good value.

If you want to scorch yourself on a beach all day, and sleep in AC all night, then this is not the place for you. But if you want to experience the island as many ex-pats live, this villa will be perfect.

“What a great stay!”
Reviewed 12 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Calamansi is clean, simple and centrally-located. The local property manager is helpful and responsive. The house itself is of the size and quality of a typical Florida beach home.

Nice place. Very spacious house with a great view. Nice pool too. Look out for the monkeys though. They pooped in the pool during our visit but it was cleaned and dealt with, early the next morning. Overall, it was a great experience and a ton of fun. Plants of space for a Big family and secluded enough for a quick couples getaway at a reasonable price!
