A Tropical Island Jewel on Nevis’ Round Hill Estate

In the 1965 novel “Don’t Stop the Carnival,” Herman Wouk writes about a New York press agent who decides to abandon his big city life and buy a hotel on a Caribbean island. He thought he would spend his days sipping rum punch and gazing out to sea. Little did he know about how to operate a hotel on a small Caribbean island. He had much to learn and so did we.

We built our hotel on Nevis’ Round Hill Estate, a lime plantation that dates back to the early 1800s. We fell in love with the view and decided that it would be the perfect location for a small, intimate, family-run hotel. We set off on a challenge – the biggest of our lifetime. We packed up our lives and left the legendary town of Sleepy Hollow, New York, for Nevis.

In 2015, Mount Nevis celebrates 26 years of welcoming new guests and reuniting with treasured old friends. We have weathered many storms and have discovered that rainbows really do exist. As a family, we take great pride in our hotel. We look forward to welcoming you to the island that we call home.
