HOUSE PALM COTTAGE: STUDIO, SLEEPS 2

Photos and Description of this holiday home in Bequia

Five Amazing Accommodations, Breathtaking Views, Sleeping From 2 - 12 Guests

Tropical Hideaway is a luxurious resort property, offering accommodation in the ‘Tropical Hideaway Villa’, consisting of a fabulous ‘Infinity Studio’ on the lower pool level and an incredible ‘Penthouse Suite’ encompassing the entire top floor. The spacious ‘Pool House’ which is fully equipped, has a second mezzanine bedroom and adjoins directly onto the stunning Infinity Pool and ‘Palm and Hibiscus Cottage’ which are both very private and enjoy the most amazing views of the Caribbean Sea.

Located in an elevated hillside position high above the famous Princess Margaret Beach and with an incredible panoramic vista overlooking the Caribbean Sea and Admiralty Bay, the views are absolutely stunning and will not disappoint.

Specializing in couples and small groups Tropical Hideaway can accommodate from 2 to 12 guests in luxurious and very private accommodation, all at affordable and highly competitive prices. All are available to rent either individually or as a collective group and if required, the property can be rented on an exclusive basis, ensuring a completely private and memorable stay.

We offer an informal, private and relaxed atmosphere and pride ourselves with our genuine friendly service and the experience we afford our guests. Our sixty, 5 star reviews on various well known review sites, are testament to the attention to detail and location this ‘Tropical Hideaway’ has and reflect our genuine intention that guests arrive as guests and leave as friends.

Tropical Hideaway has an 18m (58’) wide panoramic infinity pool and is often quoted as being one of the top ten pools in the Caribbean. The Infinity pool is a stunning feature of the property and with the environmentally friendly solar heating, the pool can be enjoyed at all times of the year. There is a swim up sunken pool bar and galley, complete with fridge, ice-maker and sink, a preparation and serving area and a generous supply of acrylic beverage glasses. Underwater coral seats are conveniently positioned around the submerged bar and this is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of your own personal wine or indulge in your favourite drink or snack. Adjoining the pool is a Gazebo complete with a large daybed and the views from here are just incredible. A perfect place to relax and read a book or simply enjoy the spectacular scenery. The Pool deck is tiled using natural stone coral and provides a safe, non slip and cool surface to walk on. Sun loungers, parasols, sunbathing foam mats and various chairs provide ample seating and relaxation areas around the pool. The Pool and pool deck are west facing and receive the sun for most of the day. A cooling Caribbean breeze is usually present and the Gazebo and large parasols provide areas of shade for the hottest part of the day.

As the evening sun slowly sets and you look out over the Caribbean Sea, you cannot fail to be impressed. Sunsets from here can be amazing with the elusive ’Green Flash’ often being seen. The setting is simply perfect and with underwater pool lights and discreet Led lighting enhancing the evening ambiance, the special moment can continue long after the sun has set.

All our accommodations have the latest Samsung 40” internet TV’s that give access to our in-house entertainment system supplying high definition films, TV, music and Internet radio and high speed internet and Wi-Fi is supplied in all areas. Professional quality ceiling fans are positioned over all the beds and for those really hot days when the cooling Caribbean breeze has taken a rest, you can turn on the bedroom air conditioner until the breeze returns.

Tropical Hideaway has without doubt some of the finest rooms on Bequia, and coupled with the spectacular panoramic ocean views and the beautiful evening sunsets, you soon realize you are enjoying, what many say, are the finest views on Bequia, from the finest accommodation on Bequia.

Guestbook comments from the manager
From the time that Julie and Martins' daughter picked us up at the Bequia airport to the moment we left, Tropical Hideaway was a dream vacation for us. Our hosts carefully prepare for their guests with care and attention to details. The welcoming tour and the guidebook for Tropical Hideaway are both very comprehensive and literally answered all my questions. I stayed in Palm Cottage while two other couples that are friends stayed in two of the other suites. The cottage was first rate for appearance, building materials, comfort, shade, and an excellent view. The kitchen was used every day for at least one meal and had everything i needed to prepare a meal. The construction materials and the details, in the guest suites and throughout the property made for a very comfortable and satisfied feeling. Julie and Martin make the stay easier by providing services that would be time consuming and more costly for their guests. They are willing participants in guest activities like beach hikes, sailing trips, and dinner parties. Julie and Martin have many means of assisting their guests in finding their way around Bequia and are also most helpful making arrangements for day trips and finding local places of interest. The combination of location, view, pool, fabulous home construction and excellent hosts make Tropical Hideaway my most desirable vacation location. I am looking forward to 2015!

We originally arrived in the Caribbean in 1996 after making a 3 week transatlantic crossing aboard our sailing yacht 'Rainbow Spirit'. This was the beginning of another adventure and after sailing and exploring the Caribbean Islands for 2 years we eventually bought a 2 acre plot of land on the Island of Bequia. Having already committed to a world circumnavigation, we set sail again in 1998, went through the Panama Canal and spent the next three years traveling around the world with our three daughters. Although we visited hundreds of white sand, sun-drenched tropical islands, we found none of them compared to the special beauty and charm of Bequia. We returned in 2001 and finally made a start on building our 'Tropical Hideaway'.

Building in the Caribbean was never going to be easy and after the frustrations of 2 years turning into 3 years and 3 years turning into 4 years we finally finished construction in 2011. Eight years of full time building and a cost overrun of around 300%. The project was huge, far bigger than we ever imagined, but our hard work, frustrations, pain and suffering eventually paid off and we now have a remarkable property often quoted as having 'the finest views on Bequia, from the finest accommodation on Bequia'.

Our daughters have now left to start their own lives and adventures, returning when time and funds allow. Our eldest daughter is now married and lives in New Zealand. Our middle daughter started the first Spa's and treatment centres on Bequia and is now employed by the rich and famous from all over the world. Our youngest daughter is currently working at a safari lodge in a remote part of Zambia and returns to Tropical Hideaway for the December to April season where she offers her spa treatments and therapy work. As you can see, our wanderlust lifestyle has left a lasting impression on our daughters and they are all enjoying an adventurous and exciting life as we have done.

Martin & Julie Mansfield purchased this house in 1998

Bequia truly is a unique Island. Large enough to be interesting and exciting, yet small enough to retain its local charm and uniqueness that only a small off the beaten track Caribbean Island can offer. It truly is an undiscovered paradise that some well known travel journalists are only just discovering and several well known newspapers and magazines have recently published articles and all describe Bequia as an undiscovered paradise, about to be discovered.

Tropical Hideaway has one of the finest hillside locations on Bequia and coupled with the incredible heated Infinity edge pool, the spectacular panoramic ocean views & the beautiful evening sunsets, you soon realize you are enjoying, what many say, are the finest views on Bequia, from the finest accommodation on Bequia. The views are simply amazing and are forever changing as ships and yachts of all sizes and nationalities pass by on their journeys and adventures.

OUR VISIT TO TROPICAL HIDEAWAY WAS UTTERLY MAGICAL

  • 5 out of 5
Although I was prepared for a pleasant stay in Bequia - how could it not be pleasant in the Caribbean - I was overwhelmed by the extraordinary site of Tropical Hideaway, the thoughtful amenities provided in each of the suites, and most of all, the impact of our hosts on our visit. Our surroundings were meticulously clean and tidy. Any questions were promptly answered. There was a full fridge in our room with wine and beer and soft drinks, cheese, bread, fruit, etc. upon our arrival. After a long flight, we were able to throw on our bathing suits and swim in the beautiful pool. Every Saturday our hosts, Julie and Martin, gather their guests for h'ors d'oeuvres and superior rum punch. Wonderful friendships began over those rum punches. I would like to add that my then fiancé and I decided to get married on the beach during our visit. Julie and Martin surprised us with flowers, a bottle of French champagne and an enormous card. They don't go the extra yard for their guests, they go the extra mile. I am a rather critical person and tend to always find a fault with my surroundings. However, I was unable to do so. Oh yes, maybe the bakery goods we were able to order through Julie had too many calories, because they were so good, I ate too many. My husband and I will return as often as possible.

TROPICAL HIDEAWAY - ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!

  • 5 out of 5
The overall experience was amazing from the start to finish.
We was collected from the airport and once we arrived at the Tropical Hideaway we met Martin and Julia who were so friendly and welcoming, they gave us a tour of the property and went above and beyond with their hospitality to welcome us, the second week we met martin and Julie's daughter Corrie who was also so friendly, kind and helpful. The pool house was a beautifully spacious 2 double bed apartment the 2nd bedroom is on the mezzanine level, the apartment has huge open plan kitchen, very large bathroom (great shower), also has two balconies facing opposite sides of the property with spectacular views.
The Infinity pool is out of this world, Truly stunning day and night through the two weeks many hours/day were spent there.
We enjoyed nights in ordered fresh local tuna straight from the fishermen and whacked on BBQ. Also Corrie arranged for us to hire the singing chef who came to the tropical hideaway to cook and entertain one evening which i would definately recommend to anyone visiting- it was a great night with very tasty food.
The location of the property is perfect as your close enough to get down to town but also still secluded enough to have complete privacy and quietness.
many days we took a stroll down for lunch, dinner, daytime drinks chilling on the sea front even some late night drinks at some of the rum shacks.
I would definately like to visit again.
Having to leave was truly one of the hardest thing I've done.
I'd recommend it to everyone as it is suitable for all ages, couples and families.
Many thanks again, such an amazing place
Martin, Julie, Corrie and how could we forget (Missy the 3 Bengal cats)

SUPERB QUALITY ACCOMMODATION IN A STUNNING SETTING

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a wonderful stay at Palm Cottage, Tropical Hideaway, Bequia. The cottage and pool area are all finished to the highest standards, facilities and location are excellent and Martin and Julie were perfect hosts - friendly and passionate about the island and offering as much or little help and advice as you wish. We did not want to leave and will be returning!

''THE REVIEWS ARE ALL TRUE''

''The Reviews are all TRUE''
  • 5 out of 5
I’m not going to repeat everything that has been said before, but just to re-confirm. Tropical Hideaway is by far one of the nicest places I have ever stayed in, if not the most beautiful.This was our 3rd trip to Bequia and we thought we would try some different accomodation by renting a house / villa. Previously we have stayed in 5 star accommodations on the island and they don't even come close to Tropical Hideaway.
We stayed in Palm Cottage for 9 days and the views were amazing. Martin and Julie made the booking process all too easy. Nothing was ever a problem and they could not do enough to help or provide reccomendations on what to do.
The Island is very friendly, the owners are lovely, the rooms are all stunning and the views, I will repeat what other people say “BREATHTAKING” The other accommodations are all really nice, are to a very high standard and have similar or even better views. We had a wonderful experience and we will definitely return.

Beautiful Bequia (pronounced bek way) is an undiscovered paradise, the Caribbean of 20 years ago. Covering an area of only 7 square miles, Bequia lies in the warm tropical waters of the Caribbean Sea. It is just a short plane hop from the ever popular Barbados and next to the renowned Mustique, both favorite islands of the rich and famous. It is the largest of the Grenadine Islands known also as the ‘jewels of the Caribbean’ and is blessed with several pristine, white sandy beaches many of which are totally natural and undeveloped. If you want resort hotels, nightclubs and beaches full of sunbeds, don't come to Bequia. If you want to discover the undiscovered, visit our beautiful Island, enjoy the uncrowded pristine white sandy beaches, swim and snorkel in our safe and warm Caribbean waters and experience the genuine friendliness of the local Bequian people.

We now have available a free 24 page guidebook with information about Tropical Hideaway and the Island of Bequia. It has detailed information about local services, the fun things to do on Bequia, our local restaurants, day trips to nearby islands and a wealth of other information invaluable for anyone intending to visit our beautiful Island. To read our free Information Guide please visit our website, scroll down the Tropical Hideaway 'Welcome' page and click on the guide book.
