Nyumbani provides the option of renting on a two or three bedroom basis.
This charming, beautifully furnished, two storey, three deck piece of Caribbean paradise, provides an elegant and private retreat, sitting some 280 feet above, and with uninterrupted views over, the Sir Francis Drake Channel – the main sailing thoroughfare of the British Virgin Islands. Happy hours can be whiled away, watching the varied sailing and power craft be-sporting themselves on the ocean from the wrap around upper deck fanned by the cooling trade-winds. This home provides a private retreat where the visitor can relax on the lowest deck amongst the luxurious plantings and perfumes of a tropical garden – Jasmines perfume the air, particularly in the early morning and at dusk. Alternatively one can still gaze at the ocean whilst enjoying the ambience of a sunbathe or a gentle laze in the hammock by the pool on the middle level. All three levels are attached to the house (and Wi-Fi accessible) and the pleasure of a cocktail whilst watching the glorious sunset from the west facing upper deck makes a perfect end to the day.
A well laid out kitchen connected to a large family room gives opportunities to keep the conversation flowing and everyone relaxed. Yet at the same time additional space is provided to allow private quiet time. There are two well -furnished bedrooms each with a private bathroom on the upper level along with a third bedroom and bathroom located on the lower level. Right outside the third bedroom is a pool and deck area.
Apart from the spectacular views of the sea and numerous other islands, the gardens provide the constant interest of local birdlife (the bottle green humming birds are at their busiest in the early morning) and multi-coloured lizards amongst the plants and boulders. In the appropriate seasons, limes, bananas, mangoes, star fruit and pomegranates are available for picking fresh from the bush.
The best of Nail Bay’s three beaches is a ten minute walk down from the house – a wide stretch of sand with thatched shades and loungers and good snorkelling from both ends. The walk back up is definitely uphill and takes a little longer, but there is the Sugar Cane Bar/Restaurant with pool to break the journey.
With the rental, you have access to the following facilities of the Nail Bay Resort.
