Spacious 4 bedroom villa with Pool - sleeps 8
About Pearl Winsborogh-Simons
I was born in Grenada but have lived in the UK since a young child. My background is in publishing but my husband and myself have renovated many properties in the UK. Currently we live in Lyme Regis, Dorset UK where we also have a holiday house.
Pearl Winsborogh-Simons purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Pearl Winsborogh-Simons chose Pretoria
If you're looking for a private villa that is not on an estate and captures the real Caribbean atmosphere then Ginger Lilly is for you. The house is secure and well looked after by our housekeeper and gardener. All amenities, shops and restaurants are in easy reach.
What makes this Villa unique
Having visited many Caribbean islands we chose Bequia to build our villa. It's a unique island for many reasons. It attracts international visitors being the gateway to sailing the beautiful Grenadines. The neighbouring island of Mustique with its high end tourist market has close links to Bequia and is easily accessible. The island maintains a strong traditional heritage and even though many residents from abroad have made Bequia their home the island has not lost any of its character.

A lovely stay!
Our stay at Ginger-Lilly exceeded our expectations on so many levels--the views, the spaciousness and comfort of the rooms, and the hospitality of Pearl and Jonathan. A spectacular week!!
Magical Spot To Stay
We just had the nicest 3 nights to start our vacation. The property is exactly as listed if not better.
Tons of room, well stocked kitchen, and a lovely welcome package in the fridge consisting of a few beers, milk, OJ, and a tasty homemade bread after a long day of traveling.
Pearl and Jonathan are gracious hosts, and were there to meet us upon arrival. They even arranged to have our favorite taxi driver, Elson, pick us up at the airport.... a nice surprise. These folks will bend over backwards to make your stay a memorable one. The location is just enough removed from the Main Street but an easy walk. Coming back from town, a taxi is recommended to save the walk back up the road, which can be hard on older knees. The cost of a taxi is minimal.
Highly recommended, and I know one day we will be back.
The property is even more beautiful than the pictures depict!!!
Merry Christmas and happy new year to you, Pearl and Jonathan. We have a couple new friends on Bequia!!!
A spectacular property with stunning view!
This property is very special, a real party house with masses of space and a wonderful pool area with a really spectacular view! Each of the 4 bedrooms are en suite and generous in size and comfort offering privacy too providing a feel of separate apartments almost within the one property. Very conveniently located but you need a 4 wheel drive as the hill is pretty extreme! Also walk with mosquito repellent! Communication with the owner and local contacts were very efficient. Everything you need for a wonderful stay is here so kick back and enjoy everything Bequia has to offer from this great base. Felt very safe and locals very friendly and helpful. We certainly hope to return!
Renting a piece of Paradise
This property was everything and more. The view can not be accurately described and changes daily..ships, weather, birds. 4 bedrooms, en-suite, for 2 couples was more than adequate. Fairly well equipped kitchen, linens. The negative is a 20% incline road to get up to the house. We taxied with groceries and walked it a few times....brutal! Some slightly worn spots on furniture and Master shower sprayed beyond the shower area. We loved the resident cat who stayed our whole week. Barking dogs thru the night and a club at the bottom of the hill played LOUD Rap music until 2AM on weekends, but not the fault of Gingerlilly owners. We had free excellent WiFi and cable Netflix and Amazon movies. We would love to stay again!
Glad to know you enjoyed Gingerlilly and do hope you’ll be able to visit us again in the future. !!
Absolutely amazing property! It is even more beautiful than the pictures depict! Huge property in which all the rooms open to beautiful views of the water. The pool is a great addition to the other amenities and was beautifully maintained. Close enough to town and great restaurants easily accessible! St. Vincent is a hidden gem in the Caribbean and I will be returning in the future!
I’m very pleased you enjoyed Gingerlilly and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
This is the best place to enjoy a great view of admiralty bay and relax. We really enjoyed ocar as it's close to the main attractions and we prefer a little bit more actions than the quietness of Spring. Watching the different boats pass-by was entertaining.
The villa was well maintained.
Bequia lies nine miles south of St Vincent. The island is oriented to the sea, retaining the age-old traditions of boat building, whaling and fishing. It is the largest of 32 Islands and cays that make up St Vincent & the Grenadines. This island neighbours Mustiqe and Cananoun and is a popular meeting place and anchoring spot for sailors as it's considered the gateway to the Grenadines.
Port Elizabeth is a lively habour with many shops, bars and restaurants. In high season you can enjoy a fun night life with live music most days of the week. Mustique blues festival in February, New Years Eve and Bequia Easter regatta are extremely popular events.
The sailing is considered the best in the world and trips to Tobago Cays marine park, St Vincent and the islands are in easy reach. Bequia is dotted with beautiful beaches, the house looks directly onto Princess Margret Beach and Lower Bay the two most popular beaches, but many more excellent for scuba and snorkelling are in easy reach.
