HILL RISE HOUSE
Nevis, West Indies
4 Bedrooms with Bathrooms En Suite (Sleeps up to 9)
Hill Rise House is a charming West Indian style home with gingerbread trim sitting on a hill 500 feet above sea level. This location is perfect as it has constant trade winds and a panoramic view of the Caribbean and the islands of St. Kitts, Saba and St. Eustacius. Hill Rise House also enjoys spectacular sunsets and later a fairyland of twinkling lights below in Charlestown, the very appealing capital and birthplace of Alexander Hamilton. Nevis is a small peaceful island steeped in history and several of its former plantations are now marvelous small hotels. One of them, Montpelier, is just a few minutes walk as are the Botanical Gardens.
Both the main house and guest house are comfortably decorated in "colonial plantation" style with lots of antique furniture, as well as traditional Lloyd Loom, mahogany, teak and rattan. They also have large verandas and overlook the 40' swimming pool and pool house, which has a cold shower, below. This wonderful 2½ acre compound also has very pretty gardens surrounding all of the buildings, which are set apart for privacy. At the entrance to the property is a gatehouse where the laundry is located and off to the side is the tennis court which can be lit at night.
