Lodging : Nix Nax Bed & Breakfast
Nix Nax Bed & Breakfast is a rootsy island getaway. The owner’s and creators, Domenica Higgins, an American born gypsy medicine woman, and Dicky Higgins, a Jamaican born progressive dread, have built this place with creative character and charm.
The architecture is a mix of Spanish archways and verandas and Dicky’s rootsy artistic personal style. Inspiring quotes & art grace the walls and give the traveler something to ponder. The first floor hosts a preschool for the local children that Domenica founded with her Montessori training combined with her own free-thinking philosophy. Looking out at the sea, visible on the 3rd floor veranda, one can see cruise ships and small fishing boats throughout the day.
The accommodations are warm, comforting, and clean and the hosts welcome every traveler as if they are family.
Come be nurtured and inspired at Nix Nax.
