About Suzanne Gabriel

Tim and Suzanne Gabriel

Tim's father was born in St Vincent but he was born in the UK met and married Suzanne there. In 1992 three years after being married we were looking for adventure so decided to move to Bequia. Tim worked with the one and only Cable and internet company in the country at that time, from its inception until 2008. Suzanne enjoys her wedding business "A Caribbean Wedding" and is also involved with the Sunshine School - a school for special needs children on the island.

Suzanne Gabriel purchased this villa in 2008

Why Suzanne Gabriel chose Spring Estate

We built our first home on the island in 1992 and after realizing that Bequia was so special that we would like to be here for the long term we decided to build a larger home. Bay Tree Villa took 2 years to build, not too long really, it helped that Tim was at the site most days to check on the progress. We love the area of Spring, so choose to build not far from our current home. It is so quiet and tranquil, we love the ruggedness of Spring beach and the breezes this side of the Island offers and still only minutes to the islands best beaches or the hustle and bustle of the harbour area.

What makes this villa unique

Located in a grove of fragrant Bay Trees looking out over the center of Spring Bay and the tops of the Palm trees you feel that you have your very own slice of paradise.

The pool and sun terrace areas are very private and the villa offers many different outside seating areas in the shade and sun.

We live next door so you will receive all the privacy or help and advise you require to make your stay a most enjoyable vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My friend and I stayed in June for a week but could have stayed longer, so peaceful and relaxing. The villa is very spacious with a great balcony area for relaxing in the shade, loved the pool area also. Property is very well equipped and fabulous kitchen. Communication with Suzanne was easy and prompt, she arranged for us to be met at the airport and even had a fridge full of goodies when we arrived. Loved the island, an unspoilt gem, friendly people and beautiful beaches. Highly recommend we had a fantastic stay, looking forward to returning in the not too distant future.

Outstanding Villa / Pride in Ownership

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful villa my wife and I enjoyed for 10 days the end of Feb into March 2017. We were only two but easy 6 adults could be very comfortable in this house. There is shade throughout the day with a wonderful breeze. We travel to a different Carribean island for the last 13 years and have rented villas for 7-14 days in each island. Baytree is among the best for view, design and privacy. Suzanne was very easy to work with from the very beginning, helpful with ferry schedule and very prompt with email reply. Once we arrived we were greeted and oriented with the villa. A welcome snack and a few basics items were provided to get us started. A preprogramed cell phone with restaurant contacts, and island numbers was handy. No problems at all with the villa. We did not see Suzanne until our last day when we said good-buy.

Baytree is very well kept - clearly pride of ownership. Extremely comfortable furniture and bed. Top notch outside chairs, loungers, Frontgate matts for pool, etc. The landscape is absolutely beautiful - many different palms, ferns, flowers & trees. No doubt a passion of the owners. The staff was organized to all come on a day half way thru our trip - house keeper, pool and gardener. This was very nice as we enjoyed the privacy Baytree offers.

Bequia is a challenge to get to but a wonderful island to visit. The roads are in good shape and easy to navigate. One day is all you need to know how to get to most places on Bequia. The prices at the market, stands in town, beach bars and restaurants were extremely reasonable compared to other islands where we have traveled.

Take the time to get to Bequia and enjoy the people and intimacy of this small island. It is a very special place as is Baytree villa.

None Better

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting private villas throughout the Caribbean for 30 years. Some nicer than others, but none better than Bay Tree Villa. The property is well designed, well appointed and well maintained. The landscaping is beautiful and the outdoor areas provide for both sun and shade. The views are spectacular as is the treatment you'll receive from Suzanne and Tim who own and operate Bay Tree.

We were met at the airport by a driver who delivered us to the villa in what would be our rental car. Upon arrival we were greeted by Suzanne who gave us a quick tour of the property and left us with a wonderful light dinner which she had prepared. There is a phone available for local calls that is pre-programmed with the numbers of local restaurants, taxi services and, of course, Suzanne's number.

We've never had better treatment in all our years of vacation rentals.

You'd be hard pressed to find a better accommodation than bay Tree Villa. We'll most definitely be back!

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better experience in visiting Bequia and the amazing Bay Tree Villa! Suzanne and Tim went above and beyond in making sure that our stay was 1st class. Suzanne even made some of our travel arrangements and booked a jeep for us.

Bay Tree Villa is in a gorgeous setting on top of a hill overlooking the bay below. The view was breathtaking. It is surrounded by beautiful foliage and has a very open feel to it. You can leave all of the doors open for a constant breeze. The Villa is truly comfortable and we felt right at home!

Bequia is a small charming island. The people there were friendly and accommodating . We did several snorkel and dive trips with Dive Bequia and would definitely recommend them if you are thinking of going out. There are some wonderful little restaurants too. I think Sugar Reef was our favorite for atmosphere and Dawn's for food and price.

You may want to consider renting a jeep to get around the island and explore. It is worth it to see all that the island has to offer. It truly is beautiful.

A big thank you to Suzanne and Tim for being such gracious hosts!

Spectacular View

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Bay Tree Villa. The view was spectacular. The villa was very private and had all the amenities we needed. Beautiful design, tropical grounds and easy access to town made the experience relaxing and very convenient. Suzanne was very attentive and took care of our rental car and cab arrangements. Upon arrival we were welcomed with a lovely and delicious light meal and beverages. After a long flight, it was the perfect introduction to our stay. We loved the Bay Tree Villa! Thanks again Suzanne.

Fantastic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at the villa and it was wonderful.

The villa has everything you can need (including a small gym) and the view is breathtaking. The description of the villa is very accurate and it looks even better than in photo!

Suzanne is the perfect host: she prepared a light supper for our arrival, organized taxis and gave us excellent advice and tips about thing to do in the island. She really helped us have an even greater vacation, thank you so much!

We absoultely recommend it.

“Bequia is amazing and Suzanne's place is ideal for a group of 4-6 people.

Everything was provided and Suzanne was always on hand to help out if we had any questions. She even provides a local mobile phone pre-loaded with numbers of local restaurants, taxis etc. Completely as described, very comfortable, well-equipped with maid service even including changing towels and sheets twice weekly. Pool was lovely and warm, wonderful views and great outside decking area.

We would certainly recommend that you hired a car however, as the villa is too far to walk to the town and beaches etc. Noel provides a well-used Suzuki which is ideal for the job at reasonable rates. Restaurants vary from being very ethnic to a few upmarket up to international standards.

The Auberge and Sugar Reef were our favourites. But in general, it is worth noting that very little is produced on the island and most commodities are shipped in thus making them quite expensive. For example Illy coffee EC$79 (£20). Normally I might recommend bringing things like coffee, tea and wine with you, but beware that the airport searches pretty much every bag and charges import tax as well. So just something to be aware of. If you find better beaches or friendlier people anywhere, please let us know!

We had a great time - thank you Suzanne. We'll be back!”

Beautiful beaches, day sailing trips. Fabulous location for stargazing. Bequia is also an undiscovered dive location with dive sites only 10 min on the boat... great for both beginners and advanced.
