This villa is everything the description says and more. Possibly the most relaxing vacation my husband & I have ever taken. This was our first trip to Bequia, and loved the island and its people. This villa is super spacious with wonderful views, privacy and everything you need to enjoy your stay. Conveniently close to Lower Bay Beach (which we had many times to ourselves), and within walking distance to Port Elizabeth (if you are healthy). Part of the walk is along the beach and a stone wall walk by restaurants and shops. We rented a car, but not sure if we would again. Taxis are abundant, however, be ready for an open air truck with canopy. Patrick, the villa's onsite manager and chef, is attentive, helpful, and an amazing chef. He cooked dinner for us 3 nights and they were all delicious. His wife, Miranda does the housecleaning, and she is sweet and the villa is spotless. Waking up to the ocean view in the master was amazing. There are so many seating areas that even if you had six staying you could have plenty of privacy or space to read, etc. All the baths are large and beautiful. Cannot say enough great things - cannot wait to go back and we will definitely rent this villa again. Alexandra (owner) was very prompt in responding throughout the rental process and is an excellent communicator. You will absolutely fall in love with villa and its location!

The unspoiled island of Bequia lies 9 miles south of St Vincent in the archipelago of the Grenadines. The old world charm of Bequia and easy friendly manner of the local people is a great draw to this island of white sand beaches, good restaurants, lively bars and music throughout the season, which stretches from November until after the sailing Regatta during Easter week. After Easter things quieten down - but still the island exudes its magic.

There are eight islands in the nation of St Vincent and the Grenadines. The second largest, Bequia is only seven square miles and home to around 5000 people. The others are Mustique, Canouan, Mayreau, Union Island, Palm Island and Carriacou, all there to explore by ferry or charter for the adventurous.

Famous for its sea-faring tradition, with its natural horseshoe harbour, Bequia has long been known to sailors. Its natural beauty, island charm and open friendly people of mixed descent, Amerindian, Arawak, Carib, African, Scottish, Irish, French make Bequia a perfect place to relax and unwind.

Cassava is situated on Lower Bay, the largest beach on the calm Caribbean side of the island. Widely thought to be the finest swimming beach in the Grenadines, it is safe and current free. The sand is white and the water warm year round. There are three bar restaurants along the beach which serve cold drinks and hot food and a small cafe selling delicious coconut ice-cream.

Enjoy a cool drink or lunch at De Reef or Mangos, or the mid-week open air movie at Keegans, all on the seafront. Bequia is the perfect island to relax and unwind, swimming, reading, fishing, snorkeling. Spearfishing. Or walk to the top of Mount Peggy passing purple and orange land crabs, and from the lava rock sculptured summit look down over the islands.

Explore the beaches, calm Princess Margaret or the beautiful but wilder Atlantic side of the island, and the turtle sanctuary. Spend a day sailing on a 100ft wooden schooner which was once the island's ferry, exploring the Grenadines or charter a powerboat for the day and explore Mustique (30min), or beautiful Mayreau and snorkel in the clear waters of the natural horseshoe reef at the Tobago Cays (an hour) (see our website).

Explore St Vincent where Pirates of the Caribbean was filmed at Wallilabou Bay, hike to the Dark View Falls or the Soufriere volcano. Or just take a water taxi around Bequia and see Moonhole from the sea, an extraordinary and magical collection of houses carved and built into the cliff side at the southern tip. Visit the Whaling Museum and the Hamilton Fort.

The St Vincent Carnival during the first week of July.

During the high season, for those who like music - after dinner the tables move to the side and there is a live band and legendary jump-up on a Friday night at Devil's Table, on a Thursday there is steel pan band and jump-up in the open air by the water at The Frangipani, music in the street at Penthouse on a Friday and Saturday, and every day of the week there is Baj to welcome you, open year round serving drinks, barbecued food and music. On Sunday afternoons a live band plays at De Reef on Lower Bay.

The island has a hairdresser, massage therapists, reflexologist, a homeopath, chiropractor and an acupuncturist as well as a doctor and a small hospital.

Port Elizabeth has all the necessary shops including an excellent gourmet purveyor Doris Fine Foods and also now an outlet for good wines, Vintages Bequia. There is a vegetable market, stalls, a bookshop and more.

The evidence of Bequia's charm is in meeting visitors who return time and again with a feeling as though they have returned home to this island which has some magic about it, no matter what time of year. The people of Bequia are friendly and at ease with visitors who often leave yearning to return to this unique island with its old world charm.
