Lucitt & Co.
It might be the time of year, but the sight of the sparkling three-tiered fountains of the West Indies and the resort’s pristine swimming pool illuminated for the Neapolitan version of the winter season really makes it seem like the holidays are approaching, and reasons to be happy abound in this beautiful part of town. The community looks great. Beautiful West Indies Island style architecture finished in soft gray stucco with high contrast trim and value added structural elements sets the tone for the West Indies. The equipment is complete and appreciated by the new owners. Cooler weather could mean the fireplace lounge and huge outdoor fireplace will have as much play as the pool, though nothing says Florida at its best as a 3,500 square foot heated pool, though the steam rising from the adjacent spa to a close second. As the days get shorter until mid-December, photos of late afternoon poolside parties take on the appearance of midnight swims. Wonderful, album-worthy winter memories can fill the first sub-tropical vacation season for new owners in the West Indies.

They feature 2 and 3 bedroom floor plans ranging from 1,448 to 1,698 square feet. All low-rise residences are allocated 2 parking spaces, with the top-floor units receiving a one-car garage as one of their spaces.

The upper floor of the Grand Coach Home, Montserrat, is the largest 3 bedroom home in the West Indies at 2,444 square feet under air.

The Great Room offers the best views of the West Indian skies and runs parallel to the Nevis first floor layout.
