We loved our stay at the Clifton Garden cottage. The cottage is new, air conditioned (with a very quiet mini-split air conditioner), has two ceiling fans, a brand new kitchen (all the mod cons), and new laundry facilities. The plunge pool is perfect for cooling off.
The cottage is very private and safe. A security guard introduced himself to us on the night we arrived. The porch (with the plunge pool) is very private even though there are other cottages nearby: it is surrounded by a low wall and vegetation.
You can get fresh fruit from a roadside stand just on the main road (about a 5 minute walk). One of the best restaurants - Coconut Grove - is only a few minutes walk down the road, too, and there's a nice beach there. In fact, the cottage is located in the middle of Nevis's best beaches, which are on the west side of the island running from Oualie in the north down to Pinney's. You can take taxi vans throughout the island - you can catch these on the main road (about a 3 minute walk from the cottage).
Even though it's fairly near the main road, the cottage was very quiet. The neighbors were virtually silent. We heard a weed-whacker once - that was as loud as it got.
Our host, Pulmattie, was excellent. She was extremely helpful. She made sure we knew how everything worked, and encouraged us to get in touch with her if we needed anything. When we return to Nevis, Pulmattie will be the person we contact to arrange accommodation. Hopefully, we'll end up in the Clifton Garden cottage again.
