Luxury Nevis Properties
September 13, 2010
Exactly one hundred years after a traditional wooden chattel house was built in “Fountain” village, Eric Lamb orchestrated its move – on a flatbed truck – to a new location at the head of the Spring Hill valley. After much hard work, sympathetic additions and plenty of imagination, it became one of Nevis’ premier rental properties, “Lambsdown”. It was so popular that he has recently added three more cottages. One – The Garden Cottage ““ is, as its name implies, in the garden of the main house. Although not of the same era as the original, it is built in the same timeless Antillean style with local stone and artifacts from neighbouring islands, with an attention to detail that is one of the main features of these romantic retreats.
Two further eco-cabins have been erected on stilts above the forest canopy at the top of the valley just across the trail from the main house. They are called Firefly, named after the captivating insect that is, on a clear night, indistinguishable from the stars above. All four cottages, although within 50 meters of each other, offer total privacy and tranquility and in the case of Firefly, a unique vantage point to observe the varied wildlife of the valley at close proximity. They can be rented as a whole or separately.
Although situated at the base of Nevis Peak, the cottages are within easy reach of all the essentials of a Caribbean holiday. Good beaches and water-sports are just 2 minutes drive, five restaurants are within 5 minutes and wild mountain hikes and beautiful views are right on the doorstep. Fruits and vegetables grown in our dark volcanic soil are readily available at the octagonal shop opposite Tequila Sheila’s beach hotel and restaurant at Cades Bay, just a couple of minutes away. The Four Seasons Resort Golf Course and town are fifteen minutes away.
