Our vacation house, BLACK SAND COVE, has the FlipKey "Rated Excellent" badge, and won the "Top Vacation Rental" badge in 2012 and again in 2013. It's located is in a secluded part of the out-of-the-way island of Nevis. The house, just yards from the Caribbean sea, is set in an unique and extensive garden, which some guests insist is the most beautiful garden in the Caribbean. We emphasize on local plants and native species, and the uniqueness lies in great design, thanks to Julie Toll, the multi-award winner of many British garden shows.

Additional Location Information

Nevis is a small Caribbean island, rather undeveloped and off-the-beaten-track. Nature, hiking, swimming, birding, enjoying the rainforest and the fabulous views, and just relaxing….. these are popular activities. Nevis has lots of nice restaurants, but if you're looking for casinos, nightlife, and shopping, you need a different island. For a delightful natural environment, on a comparatively undeveloped island, we recommend Nevis!

One of our guests, who grew up on a nearby Caribbean island, declared our garden the most beautiful in the Caribbean. What makes it so special? We use simple plants - largely native species, local plants that thrive in the dry, sunny, seaside location, like aloes, agaves, frangipani, and crown flower. Native hardwoods including logwood, mahogany, and wild almond, as well as coconuts and royal palms: these are main features of the landscape. The principle reason for the garden's appeal is the inspired talent of Julie Toll, a well-known landscape designer based in Britain. Plus the setting itself is charming: sea in front, mountain behind. There's plenty to do on Nevis, but some of our guests tell us that once they get here, they often don't feel motivated to leave the premises. They'd rather just hang around and enjoy Black Sand Cove. If you go to the Black Sand Cove website, click on About, and then Beach and Gardens, you’ll find a link to an article about our garden from the British magazine House & Gardens, October 2011 issue.
