FROM THE GUESTBOOK
"We have been on this lovely island for 2 weeks and are sad to be leaving tomorrow, particularly as we have not seen the monkeys! YET! Suddenly, they were (21 I think) keeping us entertained for 2 hours with their antics. We love this side of the island best. The views are amazing and the local animals charming. Thank you for sharing your lovely house (and binoculars)!”

The Mill  - Atmospheric Inside and Out

Built of thick volcanic stone, the Vervain Mill includes three bedrooms with ensuite baths and much more.

The first level includes two large bedrooms – one with a queen size bed and one with twin beds.  Each has French doors opening to the lawn and pool, and each has a private bath.

The stone-walled main floor of the tower, which includes the kitchen and indoor living/dining room, opens onto a dramatic wraparound terrace with sweeping views of the Atlantic and of Mt. Nevis.  The large terrace includes sitting and dining areas covered by a series of flying canopies that provide shade with minimal interruption of the view.

The third level is an airy bedroom with a queen-size bed and private bath, and two beautiful arched windows.

The top floor is a sitting room with two daybeds, a writing desk, and a walkout terrace overlooking the fields and the ocean.

Windows and doors are screened.  The house is naturally cooled by its thick stone walls and a lovely breeze.  There is rarely an uncomfortable night. 

The mill’s 1.75-acre grounds are land-scaped with an assortment of palm trees, flamboyant trees, plumbago and ixora borders, and a ficus hedge.  Next to the mill stands the ruin of the original boiling house. The swimming pool has incredible views over pasture-lands, up the mountain, and out to sea. Next to the pool is a gazebo – the perfect place to read anytime of day or watch sunsets.  The gazebo is a very atmospheric place for a private wedding. Families of monkeys are frequently seen in the lower yard in the morning or afternoon as they frolic their way up or down the hill.

Amenities include private swimming pool, maid service, washer and dryer, high-speed internet connection iPod-friendly CD/tape player, and a well-equipped kitchen. With prior notice, guests can arrange for catered meals.
