We stayed there for a week for our 25th wedding anniversary after finding the property online. We were seeking a small, out of the way island, with beautiful mountainside ocean views, non-commercialized (like the way the Caribbean used to be!), and a small charming property that was very private. Tropical Hideaway did not disappoint! The location, photos on their website and the family story sold us. The property is quite extraordinary with stunning views!
The buildings are architecturally beautiful, with great attention to details, immaculate tropical grounds, highly maintained, excellent amenities, and probably the best infinity pool on the island (mind blowing actually!). Fabulous sunset watching! The Palm Cottage was perfect in every way: private, quiet, first class island-style octagonal cottage, nice detailed finishes, roomy, nice small kitchen, fabulous window wall to the view (with screens), beautiful high wood-finished ceiling!, nice bathroom, good air conditioning unit for sleeping if needed, and amazing views of the harbor. The large covered balcony is perfect for relaxing and where we had breakfast every morning! You could sit there for hours enjoying the lush landscaping, hummingbirds, rainbows in the sky and sailboat watching. The kitchen had everything we needed - including a great view & sliding door access to the balcony. The large infinity edge pool is only a short walk away (100+ feet), but Palm Cottage still has it's own private views. If you wish to cook on the grill, you'll never find a better view to cook by!
The owners are very accommodating, make you feel welcome and right at home. It is wonderful to stay where they go out of their way to make you comfortable! We highly recommend staying in the Palm Cottage and would absolutely like to return in the future!
Some places we enjoyed: Princess Margaret Beach, the Belmont Walk along the harbor waterfront is fabulous - don't see this on other islands, Gingerbread Café, Sugar Reef Restaurant, Papa's Bar & Grill in Port Elizabeth, Bequia Beach Hotel for cocktails & dining, Jack's on the Beach, FireFly restaurant, Step-Down Bar for local ambiance and fresh caught lobster, meeting the friendly locals, driving around the island with gorgeous views every turn!
