When the day is done, you can sleep in the villa's two large bedrooms -- each with its own bath. Both have exquisitely handmade Nevisian mahogany beds. One bedroom has a king-size four-poster, while the other has twin beds which can be converted into a king-size bed. The bedrooms are privately located at either end of the villa and through mahogany double doors. Both bedrooms enjoy the same fantastic view of the ocean, gently swaying palm trees, and evening stars.
Hospitality comes first in Nevis, and especially at Coral Reef. If you desire, Coral Reef's owner will arrange for you to be met when you arrive, and to be given an orientation to the island and the villa.
This villa is ideal for a romantic honeymoon, a fun vacation for two couples, or for parents with one or two older children.

About the Owner
I am a retired French teacher who was born and spent most of my
childhood years in Montreal, Canada except for 5 years in Orange Park,
Florida where my father was a psychologist at the Yerkes chimpanzee
lab and a year on scholarship at a university in Neuchatel,
Switzerland. When I returned to Montreal I met my husband (on a blind
date ) at McGill University where I was an undergrad student and my
husband was a medical student. When we graduated he returned to Penna,
his home state, for his internship. After that his residency training
took us to Texas, Maryland, London, England and Wisconsin. During this
time we had two sons and later adopted a daughter and took in foster
daughters whom we wanted to adopt but the mothers just wanted to hold
on to them loosely. We also took in exchange students and a family
from Vietnam for 6 months. In 1989 my husband’s friend, from undergrad
years at Gettysburg College, purchased Nisbet Plantation on Nevis and
we started buying land next door. We ended up with 4 acres on the
ocean and now that we are retired we live in our own villa and rent
CORAL REEF VILLA. I feel so blessed.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Excellent accomdation, wonderful vacation
Date of Stay: April 2008
WOW, what a fantastic time we had at Coral Reef. From the pool, to the screened in veranda, to the well set up kitchen, we had the best of everything. What really made our vacation memorable was the people on Nevis. Warm, kind, and trusting come to mind. Everywhere we went people were so kind. We loved driving around waiting for goats to walk across the road. Nobody in a big hurry. The beach front was very private, quiet and you can walk along the shoreline for miles, and the snorkelling was amazing. We will come back,
hopefully for many years to come. My wife and myself have found a very special place and would not change a thing. Thanks Jane and Ron for sharing the Coral Reef with us. Also Jeannette the daily maid service and Henry the groundskeeper what wonderful people.

Owners Response: Thanks so much for the wonderful review. When you return again in April you will be able to enjoy two new snorkeling areas nearby and
some fabulous ruins that we hadn't explored before. I found quite a few 300 or more year old broken clay pipes, with some pipe bowls in good shape with the makers initials on them, at one of the many very old forts on the island. We explored early indian sites with an archeologist from the USA and a Clemson trained biologist and found pottery shards dating back to the time of Christ. Probably the indians came from the Orinoco River in Venezuela and were descended from stone age people. Their polishing stones are lovely.

It all started when my husband was rewarded with a sabbatica at work. We have small children that love the beach so tropical was the obvious choice. We luckliy stumbled upon the beautiful island of Nevis. A tiny volcanic island with beautiful beaches and rainforest. We looked at the resort options which were beautiful but we really wanted something just for our family to spend time together where we could cook meals together and come and go as we pleased. Then we found the Coral Reef Villa. The reviews were all fabulous and the pictures looked like paradise. We contacted the owner Jane and inquired about renting the house for 2 weeks in June. After speaking with Jane we knew it was exactly where we wanted to be. Jane was so amazing and helpful throughout rental process and with all the many questions we had before we arrived in Nevis. On our arrival in St Kitts Jane arranged for our transport over to the house which saved a lot of money. She recommended renting a car from Marlon which we did. The rental car was perfect and Marlon was great. Jane also arranged for Marlon to give us a private tour of the island and show us what the island has to offer. This was a fabulous gift and was so informative. We couldn't believe how beautiful the house was when we arrived. My favorite place in the entire house was the huge screened in porch. We spent most of our time there when we were home. We ate all of our meals there together which was awesome. The 2 hammocks on the porch were my favorite places to nap. The pool was perfect and refreshing. The gardens surrounding the house were so colorful. There was no air conditioner in the house which I was afraid would be a problem, but with the open air floor plan and fans we felt a constant ocean breeze. we had our own private walk to the beach. bring water shoes!!Just to the right of the house was a man made reef where we spent a lot of time snorkeling. We saw beautiful fish, crabs and lobsters. our favorite thing to do at night was crab hunting in front of the house. The kids loved it and the Crabs were huge. Jane has an agreement with the resort Nisbet Plantation next door, so we were able to keep an open tab at the beach bar and restuarant which were awesome. We bought groceries and cooked most of our meals and saved money. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook a meal. The housekeeper Jeanine arrived every morning to clean and change sheets which was a real treat. A true vacation in Paradise!
An idyllic getaway location
Coral Reef Vllla surpassed my expectations. The photos didn't do justice to the reality. The living/dining area was amply large, the bedrooms and baths were comfortable with access to the porch from each bedroom. The kitchen was a nice size with all appliances in excellent condition. (Refrigerator includes an ice maker- such a bonus after very small ice trays in other rentals). The most wonderful feature is the screened porch from which you can see the surf breaking. The pool is a few steps down and we made very good use of that. The property is quite extensive and well maintained, so as well as a large front area, there is an equally big back yard in which we played a few rousing games of croquet.
Perhaps the most astonishing part of our two week stay was the attention and generosity of our landlords Jane and Ron Paul. Not only did they arrange and pay for our arrival from St Kitts, but gave us a tour of the island which gave us a good idea of its geography and those things we would like to do during our stay. They were most attentive to our needs and enjoyment providing other much appreciated little gifts and hints. I should also point out that although the villa is right next to Nesbit Plantation it was mostly quiet and very private.
As an older woman, I was not particularly interested in the beach, but it is a very short walk and my son and his wife enjoyed it a good deal. My vacation was all I'd hoped, relaxing and delightful.
The country is beautifully unspoilt and the people are delightful. However the villa makes the holiday perfect, the views are wonderful, and the owners of the villa lavish such personal and additional extras to make your holiday special.
over-the-top great place
This charming two bedroom villa has it all--a wonderful ocean view, a private pool, easy access to the beach and some high quality restaurants, and the island flavor. Visiting sheep, goats, monkeys, and even donkeys add to the ambience. The owners, Jane and Ron, were extremely helpful and friendly.
Everything and More !!!
We wanted to be selfish and say something negative so that no one else ever finds out about this amazing place but that would not be fair. In one word, our stay at Coral Reef Villa was Fantastic! We wanted to stay forever! From the moment we requested information, Jane was the consummate professional and attended to all of our needs. We had no questions or concerns from the time we stepped off the plane, and we were treated like special guests – picked up at the airport, met at the boat dock, and then taken home to the wonderful villa! Wow! The home was so pleasant, and included a superb pool, a deck/patio with a breath-taking view of the ocean, steps away to the water, and every need taken care of! Fabulous walks on the beach, Caribbean breezes, hikes in the mountains – monkeys, donkeys and baby goats, oh my!
Thank you, Jane – we are going to try and come back EVERY year!
Wonderful house to rent
We could not have had a more wonderful vacation at Coral Reef in Nevis. The house is in excellent condition; everything worked perfectly. The house is quiet and relaxing, only seconds from the an amazing beach and resort, in a beautiful and safe neighborhood. Each bedroom has its own adjoining bathroom. The kitchen works well, with a view of the ocean and palm trees. The screened in porch facing both the pool and the ocean is spacious complete with relaxing chairs, dinner table, and hammocks. Not only were the actual accommodations beyond expectation, the island of Nevis is amazing and endless to explore. The owner is a wonderful host -- answering all questions and going above and beyond to make your vacation special. Snorkeling was great; the water clear and warm. All Nevis beaches are public and not crowded, so you can walk them all. The weather was amazing every day. I give this accommodation an outstanding review
Activity and Interests
Nisbet Beach area is away from the hustle and bustle of any town and it's always with a happy feeling of homecoming to return to our special spectacular ocean views and refreshing breeze. The trade wind breezes are a special blessing in the Caribbean where they almost constantly blow and have a cooling effect which off sets the average temperature in Nevis which is usually in the low to mid 80's. The trade winds keep the palm fronds rustling and swaying and are a soothing feature, especially on our side of Nevis which is in the perfect location to get the maximum benefit from the trade winds coming from the North East. No need for anything other than quality ceiling fans and a dip in the pool or sea where the temperature stays about 82 degrees.
