Notre maison

Beautiful Whimsea House, on the quiet West Indian island of Nevis, will provide an enchanting and relaxing tropical vacation for you and your family or friends. One of the few Caribbean islands left that is still a well-kept secret, Nevis therefore evokes the Caribbean of old. Whimsea House is at the top of a small country lane that winds up the hillside of Upper Webbe Ground, in the quiet village of Gingerland. Nestled below the rainforest on the mountainside, Whimsea House sits at 1,200 feet above sea level and has a gorgeous panoramic view of the Caribbean Ocean and the islands of Montserrat, Antigua, and the silvery Redonda. Lovely plantation inns serving traditional dishes are a ten to twenty minute drive away, and there are several local beach bars and grills serving delicious island delicacies and tropical drinks close by. Beaches on Nevis are uncrowded and beautiful.
Whimsea House blends simple, traditional West Indian style with upscale modern conveniences. The main floor, with its beautiful mortise and tenon-beamed cathedral ceiling, features an open plan living area, fully equipped kitchen, two dining areas, and a powder room. Wide, floor-to-ceiling glass doors fold open to encompass the full-length outdoor sitting and dining verandah, as well as the plunge pool and sunning decks. Handcrafted mahogany, teak, and banana leaf furniture all combine to create comfortable, casual, island-style outdoor living that will make your vacation unforgettable! Inside or outside, Whimsea House provides a lovely spot to enjoy a cold rum punch or Carib beer, a good book, relaxed conversation, or to simply while away the hours watching the sunrise, observing nature, or stargazing in the dark Nevis skies.
Each of the four charming bedrooms is furnished with either one king-sized or two twin-sized poster beds with comfortable pillow-top mattresses and luxury bedding. (The tradewinds rustling the palm fronds, and the chirping of the treefrogs and crickets, will help lull you to sleep as well.) Large armoires, full closets, ceiling fans, air-conditioning, and large, wooden, louvered screen doors opening to either the covered gallery (verandah), or private garden patios make these bedrooms romantic and functional. All bedrooms have private baths with beautifully tiled showers with sunflower and/or pulsating showerheads, as well as hand-held showerheads. The king bedrooms even have additional open air showering area surrounded by tropical vegetation for privacy.
The grass driveway and car park is in the front yard, which is surrounded by bushy palms, and is accessed through a traditional wooden gate. The large back yard has many tropical plants, including huge mango trees, bougainvillea bushes, banana trees, and several varieties of mature palms and ferns.
We employ a property manager, housekeeper, and landscaper who each can help orient you upon your arrival and during your stay. Enjoy unspoiled Nevis in a truly unique island home.

  1. We (Jan Hemeon and George Abbott) have been married for 33 years and have two grown daughters. Jan is an artist and yoga teacher and George is a businessperson who operates the hotel we own together...The Clarion Inn on Cape Cod. We used to own two small inns on the island of St. Croix in the 1990's, when our girls were young. We have traveled extensively, especially in the Caribbean, and are in the hospitality industry, which helped us design and build a truly lovely and liveable vacation home-away-from-home!

Where is it?

Votre Quartier

Nevis was the island to which we returned over and over again with friends and family, as well as by ourselves. It reminded us of the Caribbean of old. We loved the friendly Nevisians, the empty stretches of beach, the lovely old plantation inns, whose dining rooms were some of the few restaurants in those days. Since then the magnificent Four Seasons has been built, which offers several fine restaurants, and more local eateries have sprung up. Nevis is a slow-paced, quiet, off the tourist-beaten pathway kind of island. It offers lots of natural beauty and a unique charm of its own.

The Unique Benefits of this Villa

We love doing almost absolutely nothing while on Nevis! Watching the sun rise with a cup of tea or coffee from our verandah sometimes turns into an entire morning devoted to watching the weather change, and the clouds drifting by. A dip in the plunge pool as the day heats up, or a run to one of the nearby beaches, keeps us cool. We love shopping at the market in Charlestown for local produce and exotic fruits from Nevis, and getting to know the market ladies. After an afternoon of exploring the little villages of the island (which we never tire of doing!), a cold rum punch or Ting soda is welcome. Our friendly neighbors, who for the most part are Nevisians, wave to us, or say "good afternoon", and make us, and will make you, feel right at home at Whimsea House.
