The Round House on Nevis ...
A central wooden square rises out of a stone and concrete cylinder. In this core are the kitchen, living room, dining room, and bedrooms.
Nine massive doors crank upwards on three sides, further evoking the "windmill" feel, and allowing the gentle cooling trade winds to circulate through the house.
Just steps from the concrete patio - with chairs and lounges shaded by palm trees - is the beach.
The 200' of sandy beach frontage overlooks the 2 mile passage across to the island of St. Kitts. There is a small coral reef offshore here. The beach, variously called Newcastle Beach or Lover's Beach, stretches virtually unbroken for about two miles west to Hurricane Hill, the northwestmost point of Nevis.
Over 1 acre of lush grounds offer a beautiful setting for relaxation and privacy. A wide variety of birds and animals inhabit the area. Hummingbirds, doves, lizards, and land crabs are frequent visitors.
Close to the Airport
The Round House is located very conveniently to the airport, as well. But not so close that the very infrequent air traffic is bothersome, however.
The Arawak Hustler
The car used by the Round House owners on Nevis is a quirky, unusual, and quite rare one: the Arawak Hustler. This was an actual production vehicle produced on the island of Antigua in the 1970's. It is based upon the British Chrysler Imp. An article on the car can be found at The Imp Site, and the information is correct except the the current owners of both the RH and the Hustler are Paul and Jeanette Griffin of Washington State.
On the grounds are also two cute remodeled cottages with air conditioning, which are available to rent. The rents are quite reasonable. The Round House is located very close to the Medical University of the Americas, and is an ideal location for a student attending the university to live.
