HIBISCUS COTTAGE

Bequia House Rental Photos and Description

Five Amazing Accommodations, Breathtaking Views, Sleeping From 2 - 12 Guests

Tropical Hideaway is a luxurious resort property, offering accommodation in the ‘Tropical Hideaway Villa’, consisting of a fabulous ‘Infinity Studio’ on the lower pool level and an incredible ‘Penthouse Suite’ encompassing the entire top floor. The spacious ‘Pool House’ which is fully equipped, has a second mezzanine bedroom and adjoins directly onto the stunning Infinity Pool and ‘Palm and Hibiscus Cottage’ which are both very private and enjoy the most amazing views of the Caribbean Sea.

Located in an elevated hillside position high above the famous Princess Margaret Beach and with an incredible panoramic vista overlooking the Caribbean Sea and Admiralty Bay, the views are absolutely stunning and will not disappoint.

Specializing in couples and small groups Tropical Hideaway can accommodate from 2 to 12 guests in luxurious and very private accommodation, all at affordable and highly competitive prices. All are available to rent either individually or as a collective group and if required, the property can be rented on an exclusive basis, ensuring a completely private and memorable stay.

We offer an informal, private and relaxed atmosphere and pride ourselves with our genuine friendly service and the experience we afford our guests. Our sixty, 5 star reviews on various well known review sites, are testament to the attention to detail and location this ‘Tropical Hideaway’ has and reflect our genuine intention that guests arrive as guests and leave as friends.

Tropical Hideaway has an 18m (58’) wide panoramic infinity pool and is often quoted as being one of the top ten pools in the Caribbean. The Infinity pool is a stunning feature of the property and with the environmentally friendly solar heating, the pool can be enjoyed at all times of the year. There is a swim up sunken pool bar and galley, complete with fridge, ice-maker and sink, a preparation and serving area and a generous supply of acrylic beverage glasses. Underwater coral seats are conveniently positioned around the submerged bar and this is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of your own personal wine or indulge in your favourite drink or snack. Adjoining the pool is a Gazebo complete with a large daybed and the views from here are just incredible. A perfect place to relax and read a book or simply enjoy the spectacular scenery. The Pool deck is tiled using natural stone coral and provides a safe, non slip and cool surface to walk on. Sun loungers, parasols, sunbathing foam mats and various chairs provide ample seating and relaxation areas around the pool. The Pool and pool deck are west facing and receive the sun for most of the day. A cooling Caribbean breeze is usually present and the Gazebo and large parasols provide areas of shade for the hottest part of the day.

As the evening sun slowly sets and you look out over the Caribbean Sea, you cannot fail to be impressed. Sunsets from here can be amazing with the elusive ’Green Flash’ often being seen. The setting is simply perfect and with underwater pool lights and discreet Led lighting enhancing the evening ambiance, the special moment can continue long after the sun has set.

All our accommodations have the latest Samsung 40” internet TV’s that give access to our in-house entertainment system supplying high definition films, TV, music and Internet radio and high speed internet and Wi-Fi is supplied in all areas. Professional quality ceiling fans are positioned over all the beds and for those really hot days when the cooling Caribbean breeze has taken a rest, you can turn on the bedroom air conditioner until the breeze returns.

Tropical Hideaway has without doubt some of the finest rooms on Bequia, and coupled with the spectacular panoramic ocean views and the beautiful evening sunsets, you soon realize you are enjoying, what many say, are the finest views on Bequia, from the finest accommodation on Bequia.

About Martin & Julie Mansfield

We originally arrived in the Caribbean in 1996 after making a 3 week transatlantic crossing aboard our sailing yacht 'Rainbow Spirit'. This was the beginning of another adventure and after sailing and exploring the Caribbean Islands for 2 years we eventually bought a 2 acre plot of land on the Island of Bequia. Having already committed to a world circumnavigation, we set sail again in 1998, went through the Panama Canal and spent the next three years traveling around the world with our three daughters. Although we visited hundreds of white sand, sun-drenched tropical islands, we found none of them compared to the special beauty and charm of Bequia. We returned in 2001 and finally made a start on building our 'Tropical Hideaway'.

Building in the Caribbean was never going to be easy and after the frustrations of 2 years turning into 3 years and 3 years turning into 4 years we finally finished construction in 2011. Eight years of full time building and a cost overrun of around 300%. The project was huge, far bigger than we ever imagined, but our hard work, frustrations, pain and suffering eventually paid off and we now have a remarkable property often quoted as having 'the finest views on Bequia, from the finest accommodation on Bequia'.

Our daughters have now left to start their own lives and adventures, returning when time and funds allow. Our eldest daughter is now married and lives in New Zealand. Our middle daughter started the first Spa's and treatment centres on Bequia and is now employed by the rich and famous from all over the world. Our youngest daughter is currently working at a safari lodge in a remote part of Zambia and returns to Tropical Hideaway for the December to April season where she offers her spa treatments and therapy work. As you can see, our wanderlust lifestyle has left a lasting impression on our daughters and they are all enjoying an adventurous and exciting life as we have done.

Martin & Julie Mansfield purchased this house in 1998

Why Martin & Julie Mansfield chose Bequia

Bequia truly is a unique Island. Large enough to be interesting and exciting, yet small enough to retain its local charm and uniqueness that only a small off the beaten track Caribbean Island can offer. It truly is an undiscovered paradise that some well known travel journalists are only just discovering and several well known newspapers and magazines have recently published articles and all describe Bequia as an undiscovered paradise, about to be discovered.

What makes this house unique

Tropical Hideaway has one of the finest hillside locations on Bequia and coupled with the incredible heated Infinity edge pool, the spectacular panoramic ocean views & the beautiful evening sunsets, you soon realize you are enjoying, what many say, are the finest views on Bequia, from the finest accommodation on Bequia. The views are simply amazing and are forever changing as ships and yachts of all sizes and nationalities pass by on their journeys and adventures. Please visit our comprehensive website, read our latest 5* reviews, browse through our stunning photographs and download our free information guide for visiting Bequia and make your dream a reality.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at Tropical Hideaway in December spending 6 nights in Hibiscus Cottage and 5 in the Penthouse. I couldn't tell you which one to stay in as they are both perfection in their own way. Hibiscus Cottage is completely private, down some steps from the beautiful Infinity pool. There is a seating area as you go in with an internet TV which the owners have packed full of all the latest movies and TV Series. Although the panoramic views across the bay will keep you more than occupied. The kitchen area has everything you will need. Spotless shower room with plenty of shampoo shower gels etc. There are mosquito screens to all windows, which gave my partner piece of mind. There is even a washing line behind the cottage to hang your swimsuits out. The food and beverage pack is five star. Numbers for taxis, takeaways, local restaurants, places to see are all listed in the cottage. Martin and Julie the attentive but unobtrusive owners have thought of everything. I cant imagine anyone ever wants to leave.

Pure Bliss

  • 5 of 5
When we decided to plan our next holiday, I spent hours and hours scouring the web and finally, after losing hope of finding the place, I stumbled onto Tropical Hideaway. After visiting their website and reading the reviews, I was sold. Everything you have read is true and I don't even know how to go about explaining how perfect this holiday was. It is exactly what you are expecting. Peaceful, stunning views, AMAZING pool, great hosts and a special little Island. We stayed for 10 glorious days in Hibiscus Cottage.

We live in Barbados so sometimes find that we are spoiled for beautiful beaches, however, Princess Margret beach (the closest one to Tropical Hideaway) was perfect. You can walk to this beach, which we did once, but it is a 20 minute steep walk down and we never braved walking back up. Lets face it though, I wasn't going for the beaches themselves, I was going for Tropical Hideaway!

Martin and Julie were overseas when we visited, which was a shame as we were looking forward to meeting them, however, we were fortunate enough to have Corrie there, (their daughter) who was wonderful. My husband had a massage from Corrie which he highly recommends. She was ready and willing to help with all of our queries and made several recommendations, which were much appreciated. Corrie also made a bowl of rum punch one evening which we finished up rather quickly in the pool as the sun was setting......the rest is a blur ;P

The ONLY thing I would have changed is that there is no freezer in Hibiscus cottage. This is such a small thing that I considered not mentioning it however, what kind of review would it be if I didn't point out something?!!? On the note, Hibiscus Cottage has no curtains. This is not a negative!!! At first I thought this was very strange but it is so private, you don't need them. When I woke in the night on our first night there, I no longer found it strange as the lights from the boats and moon were beautiful. I decided then that even if there were curtains, I would not use them!

We ate at Sugar Reef restaurant twice. It is a beautiful property and the food and service were excellent. We would highly recommend that as well as Mac's Pizzeria....I will not admit how many times we ate from there.....

The only day trip we did was The Tobago Cays, which was simply stunning. A highlight of the trip. Other than that, we spent most days in the pool with a cocktail in hand and it was, as the title says, "PURE BLISS"!

Amazing,amazing,amazing two weeks have just been spent at Tropical Hideaway.The Mansfield's (Martin,Julie and Corrie) are such a friendly welcoming family that from the moment you arrive you are made to feel totally at home in this truly stunning accommodation.Perched on a hillside and surrounded by lush mature gardens the views are second to none.The weekly staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the truly outstanding infinity pool is an absolute marvel.The local restaurants that we did try were all of very high quality and only a few minutes away and the singing chef is a must.The Mansfield's hospitality and stunning villa can not be praised enough and for those that have not been yet you are really missing something special.Thank you so much Martin,Julie and Corrie for our amazing two weeks……..10/10

Tropical Hideaways was perfect for us in every way.......starting with our on-property owners who took great care to be sure all our needs and interests were well attended to. J & M were available, approachable, accommodating.......just wonderful and good fun!
heir listing description was exactly as described. We were also welcomed with a food & beverage starter pack so we didn't have to worry about running out to eat breakfast or to get groceries the first thing on our first morning there.
The whole property is clean and well maintained and twice weekly housekeeping was perfect. Every aspect of Tropical Hideaways is professionally run while always feeling relaxed and flexible. The staff are friendly, helpful, respectful, delightful and reliable.
For our preferences, this is the best blend of accommodations and location we've ever found............just right for privacy and quiet, socialization on site if you want it, plenty of options for enjoying local food, access to a wide variety of grocery & fresh food choices................as well as stairs and steep hills for exercise walking to and from town and the beach.
We are glad we are going back and very much look forward to next year!

Beautiful Bequia (pronounced bek way) is an undiscovered paradise, the Caribbean of 20 years ago. Covering an area of only 7 square miles, Bequia lies in the warm tropical waters of the Caribbean Sea. It is just a short plane hop from the ever popular Barbados and next to the renowned Mustique, both favorite islands of the rich and famous. It is the largest of the Grenadine Islands known also as the ‘jewels of the Caribbean’ and is blessed with several pristine, white sandy beaches many of which are totally natural and undeveloped. If you want resort hotels, nightclubs and beaches full of sunbeds, don't come to Bequia. If you want to discover the undiscovered, visit our beautiful Island, enjoy the uncrowded pristine white sandy beaches, swim and snorkel in our safe and warm Caribbean waters and experience the genuine friendliness of the local Bequian people.

We now have available a free 24 page guidebook with information about Tropical Hideaway and the Island of Bequia. It has detailed information about local services, the fun things to do on Bequia, our local restaurants, day trips to nearby islands and a wealth of other information invaluable for anyone intending to visit our beautiful Island. To read our free Information Guide please visit our website, scroll down the Tropical Hideaway 'Welcome' page and click on the guide book.
