Overview

Belmont Apartment Rental Photos and Description

West-Indies away from the main tourist paths 'At Home with Friends'

At the edge of the village of Port Elizabeth with broad view of harbour and sea, a gorgeous location to explore the Caribbean way of life: alone, as a couple, with friends, or with the entire family. The perfect starting point to explore the island of Bequia: ten minutes walking distance down the hill into the village, to the next supermarket and to the ferry. 15 minutes to the nearest beach. The Rainbow Castle, built in 2005, is a German/Caribbean Joint Venture. Who likes to discover the Caribbean and its people beyond the typical tourism paths, is at the right spot here. Conrad, the good spirit of the house, is your contact person for any situation of life. His credo “I only have one thing I really like to see happen. I like mankind live together – black, white, Chinese, everyone – that’s all“ (Bob Marley). The Rainbow Castle is a place for feeling at ease for the young and young at heart – not only for one night.

Arrival: Since St. Vincent & The Grenadines do not have a big international airport, you have to make your way by the neighbouring islands like Barbados, St. Lucia or Martinique. The flight costs are about 800 € from Europe. The island state of St. Vincent & The Grenadines is located about 10 flight hours from middle Europe. From Germany only Condor offers weekly direct connections to Barbados (best connecting flights to St. Vincent & The Grenadines). From here you continue in a prop airliner of a Caribbean airline. E.g. either with Mustique Airways directly to Bequia or at a lower price with LIAT to Kingstown, St. Vincent (approx. 150 €) and then to Port Elizabeth by ferry (about 5 €). The passage takes one hour and is the perfect way to get yourself into the right mood for your Caribbean holiday in the tenth happiest country of the world relating to contentment, expectancy of life and ecological awareness, according to the Happy Planet Index from July 2006.

Travel season & weather: The climate is tropical with temperatures between 23°C and 31°C, water temperature 25°C to 28°C. Best travel season and High Season are the months with few rain December to May. During the rest of the year, in the Low Season, the climate is more unsettled and humide, although there can be long sunny periods too. Hurricane season is from July to October. Luckily St. Vincent & The Grenadines are at the southern edge of the Caribbean hurricane-belt and the island has not been hit significantly for the last 40 years. Most tropical storms flash by north.

Activities: For water sports fans and ocean lovers Bequia is paradise: sailing, surfing, swimming, snorkeling, diving – the soft Caribbean Sea keeps what her turquoise colours promise to the eye. The annual Bequia-Easter-Regatta, that lasts four days, and the Carnival in June are the highlights of the island's social and cultural life. That’s when people make a several-day celebration out of their desire to bust the routine of their everyday life with sports, rum and music. The vitality is catching. As a contrast to the beach life of Bequia one day excursions to the main island of St. Vincent are well worth while. With a height of 1200 meters the still active volcano Soufrière is the island’s true sovereign. The last dangerous volcanic eruption happened at Good Friday in the year of Independence 1979. Mount Soufrière covers the island’s entire northern third. Who feels capable of it, should definitely dare the 3 hour hike to the crater with a guide, weather permitting (organized tours possible).

Great Value

  • 4 of 5

Great Value and a million $ view. Conrad is a great host. Very helpful and goes out of his way to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Hill climb to the apartment can be challenging. Not the place for you if you need air/con. Because the house sits high on the hill the cool breeze and fan made my stay comfortable. Clean and well maintained

Raibow Castle ist perfekt

  • 5 of 5

Ich fühlte mich sehr gut aufgehoben, das sehr saubere und gepflegte Appartment ließ keine Wünsche offen. Einrichtung und Gestaltung gefielen mir, der weite Blick über Port Elizabeth herrlich. Die Vermieter halfen in allen Fragen gerne weiter und

gaben wertvolle Tipps.

Jederzeit wieder.

Bequia - in the ethnic Carib language, 'island of clouds' - is the largest of the Grenadines. For many years now, Bequia's spreading natural harbor has made it a popular meeting place for sailors from all over the world

Port Elizabeth, directly at the main harbor, is the main town. The island itself is only 7 sq. miles - about 14 sq. kilometers - and has around 5000 inhabitants. Traditionally, the people on Bequia lived from the sea, from boats, boat building, seafaring and whaling. In the meantime, tourism is the island's mainstay. Life in Bequia happens at its own easy pace. And anyone wanting to get to know the islanders better is sure of a friendly welcome. Bequia is so small that it's a great place to explore on foot, and has wonderful nature and seaside trails. If a set of wheels is what's called for, you'll also find cars, motorbikes, bicycles or taxis to rent.

Other Activities: snorkeling, dancing
