THE MONKEY HOUSE AND THE LOVE SHACK NEVIS
We sailed into Nevis in 1987 and immediately fell in love with the island. We soon returned and bought a piece of land high up the mountain in the rain forest. Over the course of the next 10 years we first built the Monkey House to live in and then the Love Shack Nevis as a rental cottage. Both houses are solar powered and have large cisterns that catch the beautiful rainwater that has come across many thousands of miles of the Atlantic Ocean.
During the day we are surrounded by the wonders of nature, mango trees, soursop, coconut palms and enjoy growing vegetables in our organic garden. We see many varieties of tropical birds, lizards, mongoose and our own special vervet monkeys. At night we fall asleep to the sounds of the crickets, tree frogs and all the little creatures that come out at night to play!
The trade winds blow constantly, keeping the air cool and refreshing. We are above the mosquito line and it's very pleasant to sit out on the deck and watch the sun set over the Caribbean Sea. Here are some photos:
