Almond Gardens

I stayed at James Brown apartments and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. The apartments are modern, spacious and fully air conditioned. Also, they are conveniently located near local amenities, the coast, and university, everything I needed!

I would highly recommend and you won’t be disappointed.

Crimson House

Dear Juliet (Property Manager),

After a long day of traveling, we made it back home safe and sound with a lot of very pleasant memories. First of all I would like to thank you on behalf of the whole family on the very much appreciated assistance that you provided during our stay on Nevis, as without your help it would not have been so memorable as it is. Your help from the moment of arrival to departure is of utmost essence for first time visitors and a asset to the owner(s) property that you manage.

The Crimson House has provided us with very comfortable accommodation during our stay and with all needed amenities to make you feel like you were at home. The location of the house is excellent and all points of interest on the island are within easy reach. We enjoyed the weather pattern on the Island with constant breezes and occasional showers, the typical tropic weather that one would look for. We found that the restaurants served great food, shopping was easy and the waters offered enjoyable swimming off of the multiple beaches that you have.

The vehicle that you provided worked well for us, and renting one is of essence as it allows for easy movement on the island. All in all a very pleasant experience and I would certainly recommend the property and your services to any future guests that you might have.

Thank you once again,

The Radovanovic Family (2015)

Why You Should Travel To This Old Caribbean Gem (Forbes Travel Guide 2015)

Often overshadowed by its livelier sister island, St. Kitts, Nevis offers a low-key, tropical escape with a small-town feel. You’d easily overlook the West Indies’ hidden gem—at 36 square miles, Nevis (pronounced “knee-vis”) is about half the size of Washington, D.C. But Nevis, which is 1,200 miles from Miami, stands as one of the last-remaining Old Caribbean islands.

Its capital, Charlestown, looks the part with well-preserved 18th- and 19th-century Georgian-style buildings. The traditional “skirt and blouse” architecture, named as such for having a stone bottom and wood second story, remains intact. Fronting the small town square is the courthouse, with the town library on the second floor. Among shops—which typically close by 4:30 p.m. weekdays, 1 p.m. Saturdays and shut down Sundays for church—the only familiar name you’ll see is Best Buy; it’s not the electronics chain, but a grocery store.

Instead of overdeveloped land crowded with tourists, the island’s fairly empty roads see roaming donkeys, sheep, cows and green vervet monkeys (though you won’t see any traffic lights, you’ll spy “Monkey Xing” signs). In fact, the roads only received names and signs in October. Even the beaches seem somewhat deserted, giving you ample space to spread out. Our Forbes Travel Guide editors recently visited Nevis to scope out the best things to do on the quiet, alluring island.
