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
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.
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.
From the first contact with the owner through to departure we had direct and helpful communications for our 3 week stay. Arrival and departure were arranged along with visitors driving licence and car hire, and on arrival a cold lunch awaited us. The Villa is exactly as described, well equipped, spotlessly clean and everything in it worked. A car is necessary. Thank you for providing 3 weeks of happy relaxation
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!
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.

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!”
Loved relaxing by the pool looking out to sea. The villa was only a short ride into town where we enjoyed a couple of lovely dinners.
This was the first time we have rented a villa and loved having the option to eat in as we enjoyed BBQing there. Looking forward to returning here soon.
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.
