Villa Seagrape only appeared on Nevis a couple of years ago but it is rapidly becoming as iconic as the island’s sugar mills. The sleek, contemporary structure is recognised as one of the most significant architectural achievements on Nevis, seamlessly easing a modern cottage into a gorgeous tropical garden. The property is deceptive: an apparently small cottage is hiding a large bedroom complete with king size bed, a sizeable living area with kitchen (fitted out with every conceivable amenity), and a bathroom that extends to the outside with a decadent oversized shower. Large 8 ft sliding glass doors lead from the living room and bedroom onto a raised verandah with generous plunge pool, and the upper deck is the ideal spot for sundowners. With uninterrupted views to Nevis Peak and across the Caribbean sea to St Kitts, Seagrape is an effortlessly chic option for couples looking for an island hideaway. The design of the cottage is impeccable, with high windows letting in light but keeping out the heat. There is AC in the bedroom, space enough for a large French door fridge and a freezer that keeps up a constant supply of ice cubes, a dishwasher and washing machine, and the bathroom is completed with modern fixtures and a double sink. A 50” Smart TV lends itself to quiet evenings on the sofa designed for sprawling. Meals cooked at home can be supplemented by the freshest ingredients straight from the garden: limes and bananas and papayas add a traditional tropical boost to any dish, and the more unusual sugar apple, soursop and seagrapes will add a certain Nevisian flare. Stylish and sophisticated, Seagrape is perfect for those seeking every modern convenience in a safe and secluded environment situated just moments from some of the island’s most beautiful stretches of beach. *** NOTES *** 1. The property is NOT as close to the beach as shown in the map. It is less than 1/4 mile from the beach as the crow flies but the map is showing the location incorrectly. We don't have street addresses so it is taking the name of the beach as the location. In the interests of full disclosure :)) 2. Bed in bedroom is a kingsize bed. The sitting room sofa can only used for a young child traveling with parents, not an adult. 3. We have 2 dogs that may need to be fed during the house swap, if you were open to that idea. It's not a deal breaker if that poses a problem.

What you will love about this neighborhood

Nevis is so special because it is so different to the other islands. Here, there are no bright lights, no fast food chains, no touts with racks of sunglasses interrupting a day lazing at the beach. Go for a walk and find a picnic along the way, plucking guineps, mangos, sour oranges and papayas from obliging trees. Spend idle hours watching the green vervet monkeys leap between trees, and get stuck behind donkeys, goats and sheep wandering obliviously across roads. Take a boat to neighbouring St Kitts for lunch, explore the Alexander Hamilton museum that is housed in the home where he was born, or hire bikes to travel along rutted tracks to ancient Arawak sites. Situated a few hundred metres above sea level, Paradise Estate is nestled in the lee of Nevis Peak. Protected by the thousand metre Peak and looking out across the impossibly blue Caribbean Sea, this is one of the most coveted areas of the island. The handful of colourful homes spread across the slopes are watched over by towering palm trees, and an archway of gorgeous flamboyants provides a dramatic entrance to the area. Barely five minutes are needed to stroll to St Thomas’ church with its cheerful red roof. Built in 1643, it is the oldest Anglican church in the Caribbean. The ledger stones on the floor are dedicated to some of the most significant plantation owners who once lived on Nevis, and in the graveyard are tombstones of the island’s earliest settlers. A rough track alongside the church leads to Paradise Beach, one of the most beautiful stretches of perfect golden sand, palm-tree fringed beach on the island. Heading south, the beach passes in front of the Four Seasons Hotel and leads onto Pinney’s Beach, the most popular area for relaxing – ‘liming’ – on Nevis. To the north, with a little scrambling or shallow paddling, it is possible to reach Yachtsman’s Grill with one of the finest wine collections on the island. A little further along the effortlessly chic beach treat that is Chrishi Beach Club can be found. Nevis’ tiny capital Charlestown is a five minute drive from Paradise Estate, with supermarkets and a daily fruit and vegetable market. For those after a quiet retreat that is within easy reach of the island’s conveniences, bars and beaches, this is far and away one of the best locations on Nevis. Whatever your purpose in coming to the island, whatever your hopes for a tropical island holiday, Nevis will surprise at every turn and prove herself to be unforgettable in the best possible way.
