My husband and I were blown away by the Tropical Hideaway property. The owners, Martin & Julie were gracious and accommodating for the booking throughout the entire stay. They are truly remarkable people as you will see if you choose to stay at their property and learn about their journey. The rental is clean, new, and comfortable. The furnishings are top quality and state of the art including the sound systems, TV's and dependable wifi. The infinity pool offers more than a swim as you can drink and dine at the swim up bar, nap on the veranda poolside bed or rest on the edge to gaze at the harbor, bay, mountains and sunset. The grounds are pristine and well manicured. Every step on the pathways offers a unique view overlooking charming Bequia harbor. My packing advice is to pack light as the island is very casual. If you like to cook and eat in occasionally, bring restaurant packets of condiments, peanut butter, and pre-packaged spices as this will save you buying large quantities at the small-rather limited-island grocers. I recommend ordering fresh bread from 'The Upper Crust' as they will deliver piping hot baked goods for free with 24 hour notice. There are excellent restaurants to choose from and a beach front favorite for lunch is Jack's Bar. This is located on Princess Margaret beach which is at the bottoms of the hill. Gorgeous Caribbean waters, clean, and sparsely populated with people. Astonishing!
Bring anti-itch ointment if you are prone to mosquito bites. Julie & Martin keep the property sprayed and plenty of personal spray on hand but when you venture off the property, you are bound to get a bite or two. Comfortable shoes such as hiking all terrains are best as the journey up and down the mountain to the rental property is steep and tiresome. Plan for 25-30 EC per trip if you hire a cab (and you will!) This is a dream property owned by wonderful people. You won't be disappointed.
