This was something of a novel experience for us.. Peg had been to other Caribbean Islands. Frank had rented villas in Italy. Neither of us had ever heard of Nevis. We chose Coral Reef Villa because it sounded so nice and looked enticing on the Internet. We read the glowing testimonials but we were still skeptical. It seemed too good to be true.
Rather than being too good, it was even better. And to our total satisfaction it was all true. This place was , in fact, so much lovlier and more charming than the website suggested _ from its expansive design, the comfortable, well-appointed furnishings; the lush tropical gardens and ,of course, the breathtaking sea views. The most difficult choices during our two-week stay was whether to relax on the lanei, lounge around the pool or wander onto the beach, which we discovered after much exploration, is one of the nicest on the entire island.. We started dining out but soon decided it was even more pleasant to cook our meals in the well-equipped kitchen and enjoy this wonderful villa even more.
We were also a little reluctant about having a full-time housekeeper and gardener and wondered at the outset whether they might be too intrusive. It didn't take very long for us to look forward to daily visits with Jeanette, who was a warm, friendly presence, sharing the latest news, chatting about her life and thankfully relieving us of all those day-to-day chores that we were eager to get away fron in the first place. We didn't get to talk much with Henry but we loved watching him carefully tending to the lawns and gardens.
And we could not have hoped for a more gracious and helpful hostess than Jane. Even from a distance, calling several times from her home in Pennsylvania, she made sure we were comfortable, sharing information about her family and her experiences on Nevis like an old friend,offering suggestions for activities and restaurants, arranging a free tour with Marlon and alerting us to an opportunity to share the water taxi with another couple on the way back to the airport. Her thoughtful gift of transportation from the airport exit in St. Ktts to the very door of Coral Reef, saved us much anxiety and made us feel welcome.
Thank you Jane and Jeanette and Marlon and Henry and Bonnie. You made us feel like privileged guests embraced by a warm family generously sharing a truly wonderful world. We're already plotting our return. Peg & Frank
