Avgalon By The Sea

Avalon By The Sea is home away from home. Only in this home, you get the two most delicious beaches on the planet directly across the street, and just a short walk along a well-groomed trail. Oh, but first you have to walk the 22 steps to the gate through a tastefully manicured tropical garden, complete with scores of hummingbirds, geckos, and yellow warblers.
We stayed in the downstairs, with its own wrap around terrace and open-air rooms. We love to prepare food at home and after a shopping expedition in town, we found the kitchen to have all we needed. I had forgotten to check the voltage/current on the island prior to leaving and was happy to see both European and American standards easily accessible. Internet, cable TV/radio, local phone, a fine stereo system, ample closet space, a safe, security system, a booklet with all the info you need by the phone… these folks really put a lot of thought into the guest’s experience in the house.
The housekeeper is lovely, the neighbors welcoming and respectful, and the local fisherman blow a conch shell outside when they bring in a fresh catch. Well worth getting up early for…
Bequia is my favorite place on Earth and this little gem of a home makes for a perfect base from which to enjoy it.
