Directly across from one of the best beaches in the Caribbean, Avalon by the Sea is a very special beach front villa that offers luxury accommodations for up to six people. With one of the most beautiful gardens in the Grenadines. This is an excellent choice for up to six people. It features up to 3 bedrooms and 3 with a huge kitchen, dining, living room, wrap around terrace and great water views. If you wish to rent a car (not necessary) it also offers a private driveway.
My name is Jim Coleman. Along with my wife Lauren, I run Audio Video Salon in Manhattan. We had been going to the Caribbean for years when we discovered Bequia in 1995.
Jim Coleman purchased this villa in 2005
We fell in love with Bequia and Lower Bay Beach in particular. In 2002 we had the opportunity to purchase over an acre of beachfront property directly across from Lower Bay Beach. It is almost impossible to obtain beachfront land in Lower Bay. We jumped on it.
Avalon by the Sea was not designed or built to be just an ordinary rental property. It is a magnificent villa with all the amenities : High Speed Wi-Fi Internet , Flat Screen TV.. Beautiful furnishings...35 seconds from the water and pristine reefs with thousands of tropical fish. Plus four restaurants within a short walk form the villa.
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.
