Black Sand Cove House Rental, Nevis

Has anyone stayed at the Black Sand Cove House in Nevis. Looking to take wife and 19 year old daughter and 16 year old son during July. Any advice would be appreciated.

Black Sand Cove is a lovely "country style" home that sits on a secluded bluff at the southern tip of the island overlooking the sea where the Caribbean meets the Atlantic. The house is very nicely furnished with "period pieces" and is quite comfortable. The professionally designed dry climate gardens are impeccably maintained.

The house sits back about 75 yards or so from the edge of the bluff and offers almost 180 degrees of panoramic views of the water. The beach at the bottom of the bluff is easily accessible by a combination pathway and wooden staircase. As the name implies the sand on this beach is dark black due to the volcanic nature of the island at the fact that the bluff was formed 1,000's of years ago by a lava flow from Nevis Peak. Because this is where the Caribbean meets the Atlantic there are times when the water can be wavy (after which you'll find some incredible shelling along the beach) with strong currents and other times when the water is smooth as glass - which condition you find on any given day depends on the prevailing currents and winds during the period of your visit. You are more often than not likely to be the only people on the beach as it is somewhat off the beaten path and missed by most visitors to the island.

The area where BlacK Sand Cove House is located is very secluded (the nearest other house is about 1/4 mile away) and quiet - a perfect spot to "relax and get away from it all. You will definitely need a rental car to get around. I recommend you get a 4WD vehicle as the only way to access the property is via an unpaved dirt road.

Go to their website (www.blacksandcove.com) and peruse the photo gallery and descriptions - they are very accurate.

Although the property is secluded and offers a great deal of privacy it is only a 10 minute or so drive from two grocery stores and another 2 minutes to the center of Charlestown and you can reach almost every restaurant and major point of interest on the island in under a 20 minutes drive.

This is a terrific property - I wouldn't hesitate to stay there.

By the way, click on the "Vacation Rentals" drop down menu at the top of this page then scroll down to "Black Sand Cove' and you'll find about a dozen reviews all giving the property the highest ratings.
