Set in 2 acres of lush tropical gardens in an elevated hillside position 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.
HIBISCUS COTTAGE is our most popular accommodation at Tropical Hideaway and offers absolute privacy and such incredible views that quite simply will take your breath away. Some guests on arrival are so overwhelmed they become speechless.
Measuring approximately 8m (26’) wide and with a large covered veranda on the front, this accommodation is the perfect choice for two people wanting the luxury, intimacy, privacy and space that your own cottage provides. It is reached along your own natural stone pathway and down a boardwalk with steps. The walk is beautiful and takes in the lush gardens of Tropical Hideaway and a hillside garden of mixed fruit trees and colourful Hibiscus plants in a stunning array of colours. Please note that Hibiscus Cottage is situated 67 steps down from the Infinity pool and pool patio area (we will always help carry your bags). It does however provide absolute privacy and the views are simply stunning. The sunsets here can be breathtaking, the green flashes magical and, if you are lucky enough to be here on a full moon, the shimmering moonlight reflecting on the ocean will take your breath away. It certainly is worth the short one minute walk.
Please note Palm Cottage, which is identical to Hibiscus Cottage, offers alternative accommodation (without the 67 steps) on the same level as the Infinity pool and has stunning views overlooking Admiralty Bay.
Hibiscus Cottage is a stunning octagonal shaped studio, is spacious, light and airy and furnished to the highest of standards. A queen size bed complete with luxurious mattress is positioned centrally in the room and ample seating, cupboard and storage space is close at hand. Egyptian cotton bed linens, quality latex memory foam and natural feather pillows, luxury bathroom towel sets, pool and beach towels are all supplied as standard. Two cane and rattan armchairs provide a very comfortable seating area and the panoramic views looking through 24' of glass fronted patio doors are absolutely stunning. The large and private veranda has a bistro dining table and chairs, allowing you to dine Al fresco style and enjoy the ambiance of the outside environment. The well laid out kitchen has a sink unit, 2 burner gas hob, fridge, combination microwave oven and grille, toaster, kettle, cafetiere and a comprehensive range of high quality cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery. An ice bucket is supplied and complimentary ice is available from the pool bar ice maker or the villa owners and staff.
A spacious en-suite toilet and shower room leads from the open plan living area and this has complimentary toiletries, organic shampoos, conditioners and soaps.
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, 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 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 40” flat screen internet TV’s that give access to our in-house entertainment system supplying high definition films, TV, music and internet radio. 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.

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.

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.
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.
Tropical Hideaway and Hibiscus cottage have one of the finest hillside locations on Bequia & 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.
