Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

This custom-built home is set on over an acre of land and boasts a replica Nevisian sugarmill as the entrance foyer. The home has a wonderful ambiance - balancing modern furnishings with wonderful antiques.

The garden offers a huge array of tropical fruit trees including 2 different types of mango trees, limes, avocado, soursop (also known as graviola) and sugar apple.

The master bedroom is very large, has air conditioning and opens onto the verandah and pool deck. A 37" tv with Roku is located in the bedroom with a Roku box - offering a huge array of programs on Netflix and Amazon Prime. The en-suite bathroom features an open shower, twin sinks and a large (2 person) jacuzzi.

The second bedroom is spacious, with air conditioning and a private balcony with ocean views. The en-suite bathroom offers a very large shower.

The kitchen is well-equipped with all amenities and appliances (including coffee maker, food processor, liquidizer, slow cooker, Kitchen Aid mixer) - but you may have more fun dining out rather than cooking on vacation! The breakfast bar has plenty of room so the chef / bartender is not alone when prepping in the kitchen .

The sitting room is a great place to hang out by day or night and the TV is an impressive 55" LED/LCD with cable and Apple TV.

Outside areas of the property include the dining table on the pool deck, the deck area with sunloungers, and the upstairs cocktail terrace for sunset drinks and breathtaking views.

The home is located in a prestigious estate and is conveniently located to the best beaches on the island and numerous bars and restaurants. The world-renowned Four Seasons Resort is just up the road and offers a very beautiful and challenging golf course, numerous tennis courts and a fabulous spa.

About Gigi Duncan

We are a married couple, Gigi and Charlie, that are lucky enough to call Nevis home year-round with several businesses to keep us busy.

Charlie was born in St Kitts (the neighbouring island) when his father was the engineer at the Sugar Factory... some moons ago! Gigi has been resident in St Kitts & Nevis for some 30+ years.

We love this island and all that it offers, and look forward to welcoming you to this very special place.

Gigi Duncan purchased this villa in 2002

Why Gigi Duncan chose St Kitts & Nevis

'Moonbeam' is a wonderful home and a superlative vacation rental due to it's location, design, amenities, style and comfort. Oh, and the personalized service you get when you're a guest in our villa!

You won't be disappointed!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Apologies for the delayed review. We spent 7 nights at Villa Moonbeam in January 2016. The place has everything you need for a peaceful vacation. Gigi the owner was on hand for anything and everything - nothing too much trouble. The house is well equipped and well situated for all amenities. I'm one of the rare humans that doesn't drive and nothing was a hassle.



Nevis Island is indeed paradise... and I shall return again one day.

A most beautiful way to escape the northern winter

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for10 days in Feb. 2017. There's not much to say that hasn't been said in other reviews. Villa Moonbeam is a well-appointed, clean and comfortable home, well located for local restaurants and beaches, quiet and relaxing. The only visitors were the occasional wary monkeys in the back yard. Gigi is an excellent hostess - always available and helpful, but not intrusive. The nicely stocked refrigerator upon arrival, the outdoor shower, dipping pool and jacuzzi were all much appreciated. And Nevis is our favorite Caribbean island - friendly and not at all touristy but with excellent facilities and a fascinating history. I can only think of one aspect to criticize about the house - the beautiful views of St. Kitts to the northwest can no longer be seen from the deck because of vegetation growth. but a quick climb to the upper deck for a sundowner each evening gave the sunset views we needed.

A wonderful honeymoon getaway.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I finally decided to take our honeymoon. We are 41 & 52 and not into parties, resorts and a lot of activities. Nevis was the perfect spot. Enough to see and do to not get bored, good restaurants. We went deep sea fishing, which was great, we went on a snorkel trip, which was also terrific. The highlight was a horseback trail ride part of the way up the mountain. Villa Moonbeam was absolutely wonderful. Quiet, relaxing and best of all we spent a lot of quiet time together. We both work quite hard and the break was wonderful. Most remarkable was the friendliness of the Nevisians. They are a laid back, friendly and very welcoming bunch. Gigi, the owner, arranged our arrival and departure from St. Kitts. All we had to do was book a flight to St. Kitts and she arranged the rest. So helpful and very reassuring to have this level of hospitality.

The property was everything represented. Very clean and comfortable. We are looking to a return !!

  • 5 of 5

Gigi and Charlie were great hosts. Everything was as represented, clean and comfortable. We walked everywhere and only used the car for extended travels to the other side of the island because great beaches and great food were within easy walking distances.

Nevis is a wonderful Island for those of us that need a little breathing room from the all to common hustle of daily mainstream life.

By all means visit Gigi and Nevis. We are glad we did!

Very comfortable villa - a real home from home.

Gigi and Charlie are very helpful and provided advice when we asked.

Nevis is just lovely - just what we needed - quiet, beautiful and welcoming.

So glad we chose to holiday here.

A totally amazing property with wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

Nothing is too much trouble for the owners and this house is wonderful with great views and privacy and yet close to the beach. Its the second time we have stayed and would stay again in a heartbeat. We rented a car and saw more of the island this time !

The Perfect GetAway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Moonbeam Villa in Paradise Estates for 9 nights, and we had a delightful time! The house is tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean, and very well equipped. One of our favorite activities there was sitting on the back patio...nice breeze, pretty garden, and the occasional monkey sighting! Being able to take a dip in the pool at any time was also quite a treat. I wish that I was back there now!

Gigi is a great host. She arranged taxi and water-taxi service for us on both our incoming and outgoing commutes, and she also helped to facilitate car rental. On the day that we arrived, she had put basic provisions in the fridge (e.g., bread, eggs, butter, milk, beer) so that we wouldn't have to run to the grocery store as soon as we got there.

On the island itself, we thoroughly enjoyed exploring the different beaches, going to the botanical gardens, trying different restaurants, and just relaxing. As an added bonus, there are cows, donkeys, goats, and sheep peacefully wondering about!

I would definitely recommend Moonbeam Villa at Paradise Estates and Nevis itself to anyone who is interested in a tranquil get-away in a lovely setting.
