vacation rental description

The Lazy Turtle Villa is one of the few beach side villas with private pool on Nevis.

Set between the mountain and the beach, the views are stunning from every room. A private path leads you to the white sands of Nisbet beach. A short walk leads you to Nisbet Plantation, a top rated plantation style inn where you can enjoy excellent dining or simply a cold drink at the casual beach bar. You can set up a tab there for your convenience.

The villa includes a very large porch with 2 hammocks, a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, a living room with WIFI, TV, and DVD and just outside is another hammock and gazebo nearby.

Our bedroom features Nevisian style mahogany beds with Egyptian cotton sheets. The master bedroom is air conditioned although most people prefer to fall asleep to the magical tradewinds.

We will pick you up at Nevis airport or on St. Kitts free of charge and bring you home where a rental car will await you. We pride ourselves on our service and convenience.

Tennis: Four Seasons tennis is second to none, with ten courts and ample facilities, services and amenities including night play and professional instruction.

Managed by world-renowned Peter Burwash International, the site comprises four red clay courts (two lit for night play) and six hard courts (three lit for night play). Tennis equipment, apparel and accessories are available from the pro shop, located in the sports pavilion.

The Four Seasons hotel is a short drive away and welcomes our guests for Tennis and Golf (see below). Spa treatments can also be reserved at their world class spa.

Water Sports: Lazy turtle is a short drive from Oualie beach resort. There you will find scuba diving, mountain biking, snorkeling, sunfish sailing, sport fishing boats, a windsurfing school, hobie cats, kayaks and day sailing adventures on yachts and catamarans. You can rent boats, windsurfers and kayaks.

Guided sailing trips can be arranged at this location.

Four Seasons beach club is a 20 minute drive and offers waterskiing, banana boating and tubing.

Adventure sports and other activities: The mountainous terrain and beautiful beaches provide the perfect backdrop for horseback riding, mountain biking and hiking.

We will direct you to some terrific guides who can help share the island with you and create a perfect workout as well!

One of our favorite activities is hiking to plantation ruins. Our kids like to figure out the function of each building they discover.

Climb to the top of Mount Nevis! This is not for the faint of heart and a guide is recommended. This is a stunning hike and the view from the top is well worth the effort!

traveler reviews for this nevis villa rental

Perfect second honeymoon! Exactly as described.

Review submitted: June 11, 2014   Date of arrival: May 31, 2014

We spent 1 week in paradise at the Lazy Turtle, celebrating our 30 year wedding anniversary, and my husbands birthday. The house was just as Jane and Lara explained, beautiful and secluded, but close enough to the things we wanted to do. We followed Janes advice and rented a car, which allowed us to explore the island. Had a great time at Sunshines, Bananas, golden Rock, The Lime, Cafe de Arts, and barbecue on the beach at Nisbet Plantation. Went deep sea fishing and caught a Wahoo we were able to cook back at the house. The pool was great, and the short walk to the beach through the yard was lovely. Ventured out to Lovers beach, which we had completely to ourselves. Waves were bigger, very fun, definitely not for weak swimmers or children. Also recommend an island tour-we learned a lot about the island and figured out where we wanted to go back. Would definitely go back.

A December to Remember

Review submitted: February 2, 2014   Date of arrival: December 14, 2013

My husband and I, along with our 2 young adult children, enjoyed our second visit to Lazy Turtle. This time we stayed for 2 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed the Christmas holiday on Nevis. The owner provided a lot of information on things to do and their parents, Ron and Jane, were the perfect hosts. They arranged for our transport from the airport and had the car rental delivered to the house. They truly want to make sure you have a good visit and are available to assist with contacts to arrange outings on the island. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. We loved lounging out on the large screen porch reading and listening to the tree frogs at night. We really love going to the various plantations around the island that are now beautiful hotel resorts to have lunch or dinner. We particularly like Golden Rock and Montpelier. Next door, is Nisbet Plantation, with whom the owners have an arrangement that their guests can open a tab at the plantation, that allowed us to eat over at the beach bar and restaurant. There is a steel drum band that plays for Sunday lunch at Nisbet and the Thursday night dinner and dancing on the beach is a lot of fun. We also enjoyed the other restaurants such as Lime, Sunshines, Gallipot and Bananas. Jane and Ron gave us a personal guided hike to an old plantation site and provided information about other hiking opportunities. On the advice of the owners,we also went zip lining on St. Kitts, which was a blast. While there we also visited Caribelle Batik and the Brimstone Hill Fortress. All in all, it was a wonderful vacation with plenty of time just relaxing by the pool and swimming in the beautiful ocean, as well as, adventuring around the island. We wish we could visit every year and hope to return soon.

Our return to the lovely Lazy Turtle

Review submitted: January 13, 2014   Date of arrival: January 4, 2014

My husband and I visited Nevis for the first time five years ago, and we loved our stay at the Lazy Turtle. What a perfect location! The beach front and private pool make this cottage really special. The huge screened porch brings the beauty of the tropical foliage, palm trees, and sea views right into the cottage, and ocean breezes bring rest and relaxation as soon as you arrive. Jane is the warmest owner/host we've ever met, and she has everything prepared to make your stay perfect--from your arrival at the airport, to the cottage, and back to the airport on departure. She goes beyond "concierge," and truly treats her guests as family and friends. We got oriented to Nevis with an island tour from Marlon Brando, who also rents vehicles, and we learned of a local place to buy fish as well as fresh produce. We only cooked in the cottage one night, because Nevis has SO many fabulous dining choices, but our dinner was delicious--grilled snapper with a tomato-cucumber salsa. Being next door to Nisbet Plantation is ideal, as you simply set up an account with them and can pop over for lunch or beach front drinks anytime. Definitely go to the Thursday night beach BBQ at Nisbet--live music, dancing, and incredible food, including five types of seafood on the grill. They also serve great breakfasts, which we did once, then we bought breakfast foods at the grocery to last for the week. Our favorite lunch place is Golden Rock Inn---go for the lobster salad, and take your camera for incredible photos of the lush grounds. Another highlight is Bananas---worth it for lunch and again for dinner. Nevis is a lovely little island with an "old Caribbean" feel, and staying at the Lazy Turtle instead of in a hotel lets you enjoy being an islander, if only for a while. We hope to return to Lazy Turtle for another wonderful week. If you go to Nevis, this is the place to stay~enjoy!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with teenagers, sight seeing, romantic getaway
