About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Idyll Dreams is a new (2009) private villa with two master bedroom suites, a gourmet kitchen complete with high-end stainless steel appliances, and a wonderful 15x30 infinity edge pool. The villa and pool overlook the blue Caribbean with views of St. Kitts and beautiful sunsets, set in a neighborhood of private homes above the Four Seasons golf course. The best beaches of Nevis are just minutes away, as are many fine restaurants and activities for the whole family.

Idyll Dreams is unique among Nevis villas - it’s the architectural details and finishing materials that set it apart. The oversized french doors and windows, 20’ high ceilings, wide stairways, native stonework, private master bedrooms, elegant bathrooms, and spacious living areas make the villa an ideal vacation spot for one or two couples or a family.

Idyll Dreams is situated 400 feet above sea level in the Fern Hill Estates neighborhood of 30 well-cared for private villas. For some nice pictures of the neighborhood, see the website of Deon Daniel. The villa is five minutes from Pinney’s Beach and the Four Seasons, ten minutes to the Sea Bridge ferry dock and to Charlestown, and fifteen minutes from the airport.

Idyll Dreams is best enjoyed if you have a rental car. The last stretch of the road to Fern Hill can be bumpy. The best vehicle to rent is one with a high clearance.

Each room in Idyll Dreams is furnished in a relaxed Caribbean style. The villa is elegant and sophisticated, yet very comfortable.

If you'd like to rent, please contact us before booking. We want to be sure you are a good fit for Idyll Dreams.

About The Owner

We live in the Northeast US. We look forward to the time when we can spend a lot more time on Nevis. Two of our 3 children are still on the dole and we have a ways to go.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2009

Why The Owner chose Barnes Ghaut

Nevis is a jewel. And it’s the “real deal.” Too often, progress has overrun the Caribbean. Paradise can turn to blight in a heartbeat. That hasn’t happened on Nevis and it won’t. The government has carefully screened new projects so that only the most sensitive can move forward. Nevis is a place where the people are gentle and friendly, where the “old” Caribbean still has a hold. This is an island that shows you how to slow down, enjoy the quieter pleasures, and restore yourself.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is ideally situated to offer both privacy and access. Just minutes from your door are great beaches, fine restaurants, funky beach bars, shopping in Charlestown, and fun activities. For those who want action, there is nearby golf, tennis, and snorkeling. Horseback riding is also offered. For the truly adventurous, try a climb to the top of dormant Mt. Nevis, 3232' above sea level!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and her boyfriend joined me for a return trip to this beautiful island. We had visited many times before, but we couldn't have asked for a lovelier spot. We so very much enjoyed our stay there. The owners have thought of everything to make it feel like home away from home. The photos did not do the surroundings justice. Idyll Dreams was beautifully and comfortably decorated and thoughtfully appointed with all the comforts of home. The landscaping and views are breathtaking. The owners were so helpful in their suggestions and assistance before and during our vacation. How relaxing and peaceful it was for us all!

Luxury in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Idyll Dreams for a week during a recent trip to Nevis. We were amazed by the house the moment we arrived. The pictures and description of the house do not do it justice. It's beautifully appointed, tastefully decorated and leaves you wanting nothing. We were met at the car ferry by the owners agent and taken to the villa as pre-arranged; everything went according to plan. The owners had taken care of all of the details including sending us a ferry schedule to ensure that we were in the right place at the right time. They even suggested places to go while on the island. They provide each guest with a very detailed and informative booklet about the house and the island that covered all of our questions. Back to the house; it is truly incredible and very comfortable. All of the rooms are quite large and spacious; you get a fair amount of exercise just walking from the master bathroom to the kitchen. Your every want and need is taken care of. Entertainment is available throughout the house (there are 3 TVs and a great stereo with plenty of movies and CDs). Not that you'll want to sit around watching TV but we plugged our iPod into the stereo and we could listen to music while we were on the pool deck and anywhere else in the house. The pool deck and gazebo are wonderful areas for having your morning coffee and evening cocktails (as well as a candle-lit dinner) and the view of the ocean and neighboring St. Kitts is great. The gardens around the property are beautifully maintained and the local monkeys play in them for your entertainment. There are other homes in the area but your privacy is never bothered. The only drawback to the house is that you'll never want to leave it.

But you have to leave or you'll miss one of the most unspoiled islands in the Caribbean. Nevis will take you back in time to when life was slower and much more carefree. You will usually have the beaches to yourselves unless you go to one associated with a resort. We particularly liked Herbert's, Paradise, Lovers and Black Sand beaches. The local restaurants are very good and very reasonable. Try Sunshine's or Oaulie Beach for a great lunch or if you want something really special go to Golden Rock.

Do yourself a favor and spend a week or two at Idyll Dreams.

Paradise= Idyll Dreams

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week long vacation at Idyll Dreams with our two adult daughters. What an amazingly beautiful and peaceful place to stay! The house is beautifully appointed ,complete with a well stocked kitchen, books, videos and WiFI. The pool and view of St Kitts are breathtaking. The large yard is nicely landscaped with many flowering plants. We enjoyed exploring Nevis, it's beaches, plantations and wonderful restaurants. A highlight was a sailing/snorkel charter. We always loved returning to Idyll Dreams- In fact some days we never even left! The owners were very helpful and easy to deal with, answering all our questions. We hope to return again soon.

Idyll Dreams - Incredible Vacation Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Idyll Dreams for a week and wished we had booked for a month. The view was exceedingly beautiful. The villa was wonderful including the comfortable bed and nice linens. Everything you need is provided. You don't need a checked bag-just bring casual clothes and kick back.

We explored the plantations, hiked, swam and never had a bad meal. The owners were helpful and nice.

Nevis & Idyll Dreams truly are a Dream!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us (2 couples) stayed at this beautifully furnished villa on the mountainside of Nevis. It is a perfect design for 2 couples with master bedroom suites. The owners were wonderful to work with and extremely helpful. The villa is actually much nicer than the photos depict. The drive up there is an interesting one, but it is really worth it for the unbelievable views. The infinity pool is just breathless and the gardens (monkeys included) are just amazing to see. The screened lanai and back porch are an added touch that made for very peaceful mornings and evenings. The fully-equipped kitchen made if difficult to leave for lunches or dinners, but Nevis has so much to appreciate and offer that we managed every day to explore the island. The people are very friendly and helpful with local information and directions, although it is very easy to get around the island. We enjoyed lounging at the uncrowded beaches, and Pinney's was our favorite for sunset. Our daily stop for either food or drinks was at Lime Cafe, and it never disappointed. We also enjoyed Golden Rock for the glorious views and lobster sandwich, Sunshine's for beach fun and games, and Gallipot for a different view of the island. Nevis is a very unique experience for it is very different than most places in the Caribbean. It is very laid back, relaxing and not your typical "tourist trap". We hope to return to this friendly, lovely place in the future.

Wonderful Vacation Villa

  • 5 of 5

We (two couples) had a wonderful time at this beautiful villa on the mountainside. You definitely need a high profile type vehicle, but once you arrive you will agree that the trip was worth it! The view is absolutely stunning, and the gardens one of the best on the island. The pictures are quite accurate, and actually understate the elegance of this home. We spent our days lounging around the lovely pool or journeying about the island (Pinney's Beach and Lime Cafe was our favorite), and our evenings playing games on the screened lanai. We enjoyed watching the monkeys scurry across the property, and the sailboats cross the narrows. We would definitely recommend this beautiful vacation villa on Nevis. We hope to return to this friendly island soon.
