On St Kitts' sister island, Nevis – 30 minutes by ferry from Basseterre – artist Jonathan Rose and his herbalist wife Anne have restored a 17th-century stone property and made it into a characterful guesthouse, Banyan Tree. The eponymous tree is 300 years old and – often full of birds and monkeys – is a much-loved feature of the gardens, which are well planted.
