“Perfect escape location”
Reviewed 22 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014
4
people found this review helpful

Nevis and Yellow Cabin was a perfect escape for us. The Yellow Cabin is in a nice quiet location with donkeys, goats, and monkeys surrounding it. We drank coffee on the back patio every morning watching the animals roam about the area. The cabin is a great size for two people with a little kitchen so you don't have to go out for every meal. However, Nevis has some superb restaurants (pricey though) but one of our favorites is a little snackette at the corner of Hanley's Rd, walking distance from the cabin, called the Ginger Snap, with home cooking done by Laverne. Her food is splendid, the price can't be beat on the island, and there are great characters who frequent the place to talk to. The Yellow Cabin is an easy drive to Charleston, making a rental car required if you are staying there. The owners of the cabin also own Strikers car rental, which we rented from. We were picked up at the airport by Tazel, who drove us to the cabin, where our car was waiting. She showed us around the cabin, answered any questions we had, and checked up on us, making us feel really welcome. Tazel also recommended some good hikes for us. Overall, she made our rentals hassle free and stress free, exactly what two tired people needed to start relaxing on their vacation. The cabin overall was clean and comfortable, making it a perfect escape for us.

“Simply Perfect!”

Words cannot describe the wonderful time both myself and my partner had when we stayed at the cabin, we were there for ten days and we were both so sad to leave it and Nevis sigh.
It is literally a home from home and has everything you need to do self catering with a cooker and microwave. Full range of pots and pans although I meant to say to the fab TAZEL who looked after us so well that you need to be a tall person to easily access them! There is simply everything from a full range of cutlery and frying pans to a casserole dish. One word of advise, look in the cupboards before you go shopping to check what is already in stock. We bought some tin foil and there was already two lots of it in a cupboard! The whole of the cabin has mozzy screening! a fan and air conditioning in the bedroom which has a really comfy bed and a rather romantic mozzy net all round which gave a four poster bed feel to it.... so romantic! The veranda is where we spent our evenings when at home, turn the lights off and watch the fire flies flitting around ! The monkeys arrive usually between 7.45 to 8.15 a.m. they are noisey, destructive but sooooooo cute! you will love them, and they often sat on the front porch rails or jumped onto the roof of the cabin. We saw lots of wild donkeys so you have to keep the gates closed otherwise they and the roaming wild goats will eat away the incredibly beautiful garden. The lizards and butterflies come in all sizes and colours. I digress... back to the cabin. Photos on line do not it justice. The inside is a lot bigger than it looks on the outside. Largish lounge area, kitchen small but as mentioned fully fuctional. Shower has lots of lovely hot water. Plenty of towels supplied and our bed linen was also changed during our stay. Tazel and Mr Striker are both lovely, helpful and the hire car we had from them was great for travelling along the tiny rutted roads which are all the same when off the main road. Look out for goats, donkeys and the occasional pig darting across the road! We had cold drinks and fruit left for us. The supermarket, Best Buy is only a five mins drive away on the main road. We ate at Bananas and at the Botanical Gardens and at the Chinese in Charlestown at lunch times. and The Hermitage and Mango s next to the fourseasons for Dinner. Everywhere we ate at was fanatastic but the Mango had the edge for where is it situated. Try and book a table by the front overlooking the sea and where the lights shine out, the latter of which attacts Barracudas which chases fish also caught in the gaze of the lights.... flying fish competing for sheer attention with the flitting fireflies. Nevis a fantastically lush green island to holiday in and the The Yellow Cabin is the ideal base for visiting everywhere. Enjoy!

My boyfriend and I enjoyed our stay at the yellow cabin. It was nice to relax on the screened in porch after a busy day of touring the island. Lovely plants around the cabin and neat wildlife too. Very clean rooms and a comfortable bed. It's clear Tazel has thought of everything a guest might need from an umbrella for a rain shower to a well equipped kitchen and even beach chairs. I highly recommend this place, and it's a great value too. Also, we rented a jeep from Strikers and it did very well around the island, as there are a lot of hills. Nevis has some lovely places and kind people. I'll miss my time I'm paradise. : )

The Yellow Cabin was a wonderful 3 night stay. Hospitality and service was excellent. They even had a welcome basket of fruit and cold drinks ready when we arrived. The cabin is off the beaten road a bit, so if you don't mind being really the only house around for a 100 yards or so then it's an excellent quiet stay. I would go back and stay again.

Amazing place! Perfect location on island. Very private and secluded. A home away from home. Thank you Tazel for making our stay so enjoyable. We would also highly recommend Striker's car rental. I definitely hope to return again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We are also proud we chose to rent the Little Yellow Cabin so as to enjoy Nevis on a whole. This was exactly what we needed because my son will be attending MUA, the medical school in the fall, and it gave us a chance to experience and explore the everyday ins-and-outs of the residents of Nevis. We also love the outdoors. One of our favorite experiences during our stay was the day we decided to climb Mt. Nevis! It was great! And it was close to our cabin.(turn on the road that runs beside the police station in Gingerland and drive up towards Heavens Peak where you can park your rental car and begin your climb.)Be sure to sign and date the notebook when you teach the top! We also enjoyed many of the beaches and historical landmarks during our stay. The Liburds made our stay a most memorable one through all of the helpful advice as well as the help in making sure we were ok during our stay. Everything is true in what you research about their cabin, only it was actually better than we anticipated. Very clean and well cared for. Outstanding views. Very good wifi service. Outstanding cooking equipment. The beds were much more comfortable than the ones in the hotels on St. Kitts. The house was super clean as well as the yard. Much wildlife around the cabin. Overall, just a Great place to stay on your vacation. Thank you so much, Liburd family for providing such a wonderful stay and being such an amazing family! I am definitely looking forward to returning to Nevis and visiting my son in med school soon and hopefully the Little Yellow Cabin will be available once again! (I believe My wife of 27 yrs, who was unable to make this past trip with us, will absolutely love it as well.) Thanks again, and have a Blessed Stay!
