The Yellow Cabin is in Gingerland off Hanley Road. It is very rural and has lots of goats, monkeys and donkeys roaming about. It has 2 bedrooms and as advertised fully equipped with all the amenities you could possibly want, from very good internet, internet telephone, and two air conditioners. Tezel is very organized and helped us with our arrival. She arranged a taxi in St. Kitts, water taxi to Nevis, and a ride to The Yellow Cabin. Tezel also arranged for a rental car that was waiting for us at the house when we arrived. She was easily available with a quick text and made sure all was going well. We really appreciated all she did for us. The cabin was immaculate with Maria coming once a week to “service” the cabin. We were on Nevis for four weeks and had a very relaxing and restful visit. We enjoyed ourselves tooling around the island and enjoying the numerous restaurants and beaches every day.
This cabin is absolutely adorable ~ with a cozy bedroom (note to couples -one side of the bed is against the wall, if that matters to you) small second bedroom, living room and compact kitchen. The bathroom is adequate. What we loved best was the screened in porch! So fun for eating breakfast or dinner. The one comment we have to offer is it felt very isolated for two women traveling together. One evening on the porch we suddenly could smell smoke (cigarette or "other") but there were no lights or sounds nearby (bear in mind, just outside the fenced yard is nothing but forest) . Shortly later, low voices. It definitely felt like we were not alone in this idyllic spot and it was a little disquieting. I mention this only because it was the only time in our three trips to Nevis that we were a little on edge in terms of personal safety. The cabin was SPOTLESS and well equipped, and the property manager charming and helpful.

My husband, my sister, and myself absolutely love this place! Exactly what I was hoping it would be. Clean, comfortable, conveniently located to grocery stores, gas stations, Charlestown, hiking, beaches, plantations, basically everything! When we realized we had charcoal for the outdoor grill but no lighter fluid, the next door neighbor came to the rescue. Taught us how to start a fire with dried palm leaves -- a definite first! Rent a vehicle as we did from the owners' car rental company, Strikers, and you will receive a discount and pick up from ferry port or airport. A big thank you to Tazel and Priscilla -- both so helpful and obliging!

My husband and I just stayed here. We really enjoyed our stay. The cabin is a cute and cozy island home with everything you need to enjoy your stay. The landscaping is very well done and the house is well maintained. It is a little off the beaten path but it also gives you time to explore the island a little more; it takes about 20 minutes to get down to the beach from here. The breeze at night is wonderful and the animals who walk by the house every morning and evening are very entertaining. You do get a little peek of the Atlantic Ocean which is nice but you also get a beautiful view of the mountain.
If we come back to the island we would definitely stay here again. Best bargain on the island!
We spent three days on Nevis March 12-14, and the Yellow Cabin was a relaxing location in the countryside. This was an ideal location, with no near neighbors excepting the donkeys, goats and monkeys. Just a short drive or walk to the main road there is an excellent supermarket, ice-cream and bakery. The view of Nevis Peak and the sunrise over the sea are magnificent. The various flowering plants in the garden from the screened in porch are beautiful. There is a nice covered picnic table to eat outdoors. The cabin is very comfortable, and has an exceptionally outfitted kitchen and the washing machine was a nice surprise. What a treat to discover a fully stocked refrigerator of fruits, juices, beer and wine. The cabin is spotless and has many amenities including the availability of speedy Wifi and multiple cable TV’s.
Thank you Tazel for picking us up at the Ferry with our rental car and for being a tremendous host, including, on our departure, holding up the ferry service until we boarded! We hope to come back for a longer stay!
