Watch Hill

Golden Rock Estate

One of the most unique properties on Nevis, Watch Hill—as its name implies—overlooks the hills, valleys, and sea below. This absolutely charming compound of three cottages and outbuildings is quirky and fun, reflecting the artistic flair of its architect owner and wife. The bohemian appeal is coupled with an amazing location, with a gate leading directly into the Golden Rock Hotel property and its magical gardens and delightful restaurant “The Rocks.”
