This is our second time staying here and we are already planning for next year. Last time we stayed was for a week, this time it was for 2. The island itself if great, if you are looking for glamour, action and glitz, this isn't the place for you. If you want a relaxing experience where you can sit back, explore, eat, drink and recharge, this is the place and La Vie Dansante is a huge part in this. It is off the main road, down a secondary road yet the sights of St. Kitts, at the foothill of Mt. Nevis and overlooking the water from a distance is at times, breathtaking. The house is large enough for 6 people and comfortable as well. If we had any issues, we made a phone call and they were resolved. We cooked a lot of meals at the house but went out for dinner almost nightly. While the house has an open concept with kitchen, dining room, living room, it also gives you privacy with the 3 bedrooms and bathrooms. If you don't want to sit in the house, you can sit in the screened porch and eat, drink your coffee in the morning or just sit and chat. If you want to get some sun, you can sit around or in the pool and relax.
The house and bedding is clean and comfortable, the pool is clean and refreshing and the wi-fi and TV works if you want it. You have to remember though, you are on a small island and sometimes, things happen. We (the half of the island) lost power and water for a little bit so things can and will happen from time to time.
The owner made sure that our travel from the airport in St. Kitts to the house was seamless. This includes the taxi arrangements from the airport to the water taxi, the water taxi to Nevis and from Oualie Beach to the house. We were able to get a rental car and a Nevis driver's license and the logistics were simple.
The house is close to the beach, an airport and restaurants. The local food and drink are good and you can go to Oualie Beach (about 4 miles away) and go diving, snorkeling, bike riding or just hang at the beach. The island offers a lot of things to do but it is not fast paced at all.
Looking forward to next year!
