The dining room was decorated in pretty caribbean prints. The food was nicely presented. We seemed to be the only guest in the restaurant that night.The food was...more
We always like to have our own car so we can come and go when we are ready.Nevis is pretty much just a circle of road around the island so you won't have a problem with getting lost.I hesitate to mention that we really enjoyed driving around in a mini-moke.

Nisbet Plantation has a very nice boutique. If you forgot to pack your swimwear, that could be a problem, but you will find the latest styles available here. They also carry some very nice locally made crafts and more expensive gifts.
When it comes to keeping all the lawn manicured at the Nesbit Plantation, it is a job for the pigs.
It may not seen like it is really that hot when you have a nice breeze coming in off the ocean.
Beware you can get a nasty burn from that breeze and sun combo.
If you have fair skin like I do you have to be especially careful of that tropical sunshine.
Keep applying the sunscreen and put a t-shirt or cover-up on those shoulders after awhile.
Also don't forget your feet. I got a sunburn on mine and it was a painful trip home.
You can dress very casual here on the island. Lightweight cotton clothing is best. Bring shorts, tops, a dress or nice skirt for dinner. Sandals are fine except when walking in the rain forest.
Don't forget your swim wear and cover ups.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Don't forget to use the sunscreen. I used mine and still got a nasty burn on my feet.
Photo Equipment: Bring plenty of film or memory sticks. Plus bring your bins. Don't forget your bird book.
Miscellaneous: The average temperature is 79 degrees but feels more like 85. The annual rainfall averages 55 inches; humidity is low. In the winter months there is a bit of a chill in the air at night. You may want to take a light sweater.

Favorite thing: We had the cutest tiny geckos running around the windows of our cottage. They were very tiny with big pads and almost colorless. It was the first time that I had seen anything like them and I was thrilled.
