“Doesn't get much better!”
Reviewed 19 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

This is our second time staying here and we are already planning for next year. Last time we stayed was for a week, this time it was for 2. The island itself if great, if you are looking for glamour, action and glitz, this isn't the place for you. If you want a relaxing experience where you can sit back, explore, eat, drink and recharge, this is the place and La Vie Dansante is a huge part in this. It is off the main road, down a secondary road yet the sights of St. Kitts, at the foothill of Mt. Nevis and overlooking the water from a distance is at times, breathtaking. The house is large enough for 6 people and comfortable as well. If we had any issues, we made a phone call and they were resolved. We cooked a lot of meals at the house but went out for dinner almost nightly. While the house has an open concept with kitchen, dining room, living room, it also gives you privacy with the 3 bedrooms and bathrooms. If you don't want to sit in the house, you can sit in the screened porch and eat, drink your coffee in the morning or just sit and chat. If you want to get some sun, you can sit around or in the pool and relax.

The house and bedding is clean and comfortable, the pool is clean and refreshing and the wi-fi and TV works if you want it. You have to remember though, you are on a small island and sometimes, things happen. We (the half of the island) lost power and water for a little bit so things can and will happen from time to time.

The owner made sure that our travel from the airport in St. Kitts to the house was seamless. This includes the taxi arrangements from the airport to the water taxi, the water taxi to Nevis and from Oualie Beach to the house. We were able to get a rental car and a Nevis driver's license and the logistics were simple.

The house is close to the beach, an airport and restaurants. The local food and drink are good and you can go to Oualie Beach (about 4 miles away) and go diving, snorkeling, bike riding or just hang at the beach. The island offers a lot of things to do but it is not fast paced at all.

Looking forward to next year!

“Limited to no hot water.”
Reviewed 13 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

people found this review helpful

Lack of hot water is unacceptable and an easily preventable situation with identifiable root cause and corrective action.

A solar hot water system should only be used in series with a domestic hot water system, either a tank or tank-less system:
• This allows the system to use the preheated solar water and raise the temperature only if required.
• In the event of low solar water temperature quality the downstream system makes up the difference, providing an ample supply of hot water during cloudy days or early morning hours.
• Solar hot water systems 101

I noticed the decommissioned hot water tank is in the garage. I would strongly suggest that you replace this or at least forewarn future guest of the issues we experienced.

Also the glass panel on your solar system is severely clouded-over thus reducing the thermal cycle efficiency dramatically.

Going green is great but only when a redundant system is in place.

The place is running down and needs attention.

I am sorry that you had an issue with the hot water. It is supplied by a solar water heater, and there have not been any complaints or issues reported in the past regarding a lack of hot water. Should it be determined that the system is not functioning properly, we will certainly look into fixing the problem.

“Pefect place to come home to for the week.”
Reviewed 1 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

House was the perfect place to call home for the week. Boys loved the pool. Monkey sightings daily. Great view while relaxing on the deck/patio each night. Our boys are teenagers so it was perfect. If I was traveling with small children or non swimmers, I would suggest life jackets as the pool is very deep on one end.... not a complaint, just a suggestion. Our boys loved the deep end:-)

“Amazing View”
Reviewed 18 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Enjoyed the privacy of our own house while staying on Nevis. Very spacious with everything you could need- 3 bdr, 2bth, pool, laundry, extra soaps, shampoos, towels..the fridge even had drinks! Loved waking up to the most amazing view every morning. We ended up extending a night as well and would definitely stay here again.

“Beautiful house, beautiful view and a beautiful island.”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We loved the house! It was absolutely gorgeous, and plenty of room for everyone, we could've spent the entire weekend staying in the house and enjoying the view and have been satisfied with our stay. The landlord and property manager were extremely helpful and easy to work with, I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in Nevis!
