We are in an elevated position on the mountain side on ¾ acres of lush, tropical gardens, fruit orchards and exotic local plants which you have full access to. We have breathtaking views of the Caribbean seas, and incredible unobstructed view of the mountain (Nevis Peak), plus year round spectacular sunset views. The 180 degree views show off wonderful sunrises and sunsets overlooking miles of beautiful beaches, across the tropical blue Caribbean Sea to our sister-island, St. Kitts, only 3 miles away and at night the lights twinkle like stars. The islands of Saba and Statia can also be seen from the second floor on a clear day.
The cool Atlantic breezes coming over the mountain and the ocean give comfort as well as the ceiling fans or AC in the bedroom. The screens on the windows keep out the insects and allow the breezes to flow through.
The apartment is centrally located to Pinney's Beach, great for swimming or enjoying the beachside restaurants (5 minute drive or 30 minute stroll downhill and you might want to taxi back up the mountain) and a 5 minute drive to Charlestown where you will find shopping, grocery shopping, banking and the local pier to travel across to St.Kitts for a day trip by the local ferry. We are 15 minutes from the airport.
The apartment has a queen sized bed and sitting area overlooking the ocean with air conditioning and a queen sized sleeper sofa so it can sleep 4 comfortably. There is a full bathroom. This apartment has an outdoor table and chairs and a small private balcony to enjoy your morning coffee with an incredible view of the mountain. Wifi is also available if needed.
The family lives on the property for adding security and we are here to help you if you have any questions. The apartment is separated by double doors, you have a private and separate entrance so you can come and go as you please. If you are looking for a non-touristy experience we can point you in the right direction.
When the weather where you are located begins to change and you are wishing you could be some place warmer, consider slipping away.
We can assist with Taxi, picking you up in St. Kitts, he will call us and let us know what boat you are on and we will pick you up at the pier in Nevis. We will also make arrangements for a rental car. We will drive you to the grocery store at your convenience, if you need or for a small fee we can also obtain provisions of food and beverages of your choosing from well-stocked grocery stores. We provide a local cell phone for a small fee so you don't have to pay international fees.

"Mountain View! What a place!
Nevis is a beautiful Island and Mountain View is well placed to explore it, nestling near the edge of Charlestown, this accessible and cozy apartment is near enough to walk to the centre of the town and explore the shops, visit the local beach and relax in one of the many eateries.
The accommodation itself felt nice and cozy, yet spacious enough for our needs and having the patio as an extension to the living area meant that we could enjoy the warm Mountain Breeze and look at the ocean whilst sipping on local rum and coconut water..
The owners, Tina and Elton, were very friendly and helpful, going the extra mile, nothing was too much trouble. They even chopped down fresh coconut and sugar cane for us from the trees in the lush surrounding garden and were happy to sit and chat, whilst at the same time respecting our privacy.
Laundry was changed frequently and the place was very clean and tidy.
Tina also runs a really good theraputic massage service, should you find the time, when not exploring the many beautiful public beaches, hotel bars and beach restaurants."

The area is beautiful with lots of vegetation, a few neighbours, you will see more monkeys, donkeys, goats and sheep than people. It is a safe and quiet area in Hamilton Estate. You can walk into town, or go for a hike through the villages, or down to Pinney's Beach. There are 6 main restaurants in the area and several local eateries in town.
You can sip your morning brew while watching the clouds dance across the mountain or turn your chair and watch the ocean. We have great mountain breezes that will keep you feeling cool.
You get two islands for the price of one, you can take a day trip to St.Kitts and explore that island or just enjoy your time on Nevis. If you are wanting an active and adventurous trip there is fishing, several hikes, golfing, tennis, scuba diving, climbs, historic sites, biking, swimming or just lazing on the beach.

From start to finish, our experience with Elton and Tina as hosts was nothing but exceptional. They treated us like family and made us feel so welcome on Nevis. From the pickup at the airport which they arranged for us, to introducing us to the local culture, they accommodated us in every way. The rental was clean and contained everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and truly relaxing. We felt totally safe and well cared for by this family. What a great experience we had with them, their rental and their beautiful island.

If you are looking for a clean and comfortable unit that is reasonably priced - this is your place. It has all of the amenities we needed to make our short stay in Nevis a big success. The apartment was located in a quiet, safe neighbourhood where we enjoyed early morning walks along with the monkeys and goats. It was a short car ride to the beach and restaurants.
The host/landlord family, the Hulls, were fantastic. They went out of their way to ensure that we had everything we needed to enjoy the beautiful and interesting island of Nevis.
we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for choosing us during your stay in Nevis. We really enjoyed having you.
All the best.

This was the best spot one could ever ask for. Lots to do and see on Nevis (Oualie Beach, Museums, Art Galleries,Peak Heaven, Coconut Grove and Wine bar, Mem's Pizzaria etc.)I can go on an on. After long days of doing all the tourist stuff, it was really nice to have a place to just drop in to bed...before going back out!
The room was perfect (just like in the pictures). Location is great. Not sure if we were allowed to go on the roof top terrace, but that is the best spot to watch the sunset. Our suite was clean and privacy was no problem at all. A great host family.
I can't really say there was a best part of our trip as the whole experience was great. There was one day when Elton (host) gave us a sample of sugar cane and coconut. I think it was the little things that made this trip so memorable. My kids now realize coconut water doesn't come out of a bottle! :)

The apartment is comfortable, and perfectly located in a peaceful part of the island that is close to everything. A car is preferable, or bicycle if you are not used to the hot sun. The family is lovely, a family away from home, and you will get a true flavour of the island and island life.
Excellent value for money in the most beautiful island of the caribbean.

My wife and I went to Nevis and stayed here. It was close to town, clean, affordable and well kept. Tina and Elton are great hosts and welcome you like family. There is nothing they won't do for you during your stay. The highlight of our trip was climbing Mount Nevis. I highly recommend you stay here.
