Guest houses can mean a lot of different things, especially in the Caribbean, and Nevis is no exception! They can be everything from just a few rooms in some one’s private home to literally the whole private home with the owner just living in one room. Some are series of room connected with a hallway. A few have restaurants associated with them, but most usually just give the guest kitchen privileges. Some have parking areas nearby, but some are using every available bit of land to put up rooms.
Prices and quality can vary as well as location. Herbert Heights has a swimming pool because it is up the Mountain a long ways from the coast and Cross Isles is small, quaint and near several beaches. Some supply towels, some don’t. During the summer, some guest houses rent rooms really cheap, less that US$50/night, but most are around the $100/day range. This is cheaper than the hotels and private homes, but more than many expect.
