About Martin & Julie Mansfield
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 travelling 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.

Why Martin & Julie Mansfield chose Bequia
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.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Tropical Hideaway has to be the best accommodation on Bequia. The individual cottages and penthouse have all been designed, to be private, but to also maximise the breathtaking views over the bay. The stunning infinity pool with swim up bar and stone seats is an ideal location to while away an afternoon. The gardener Marlon keeps the grounds immaculate.
The Penthouse exceeded all expectations. Its beautifully designed with quality furnishings. On the ground floor there is a well equipped gym. A spiral staircase leads you up to the large outdoor living area with hammock, swing seats, internet TV, large sofa area, leading out onto a curved private balcony overlooking the infinity pool and the bay. The kitchen has everything you will need. I loved the open, but also private bathroom, which is situated to the side of the living area. There is a large walk in wardrobe, and the biggest bed I've ever slept in. I cant fault anything about Tropical Hideaway, its perfect!
The beaches, restaurants and town are a 20 min stroll down the hill. All the information you will ever need about the area, best grocery stores , takeaway menus, taxis etc is all in the welcome pack. You can also order bottles of rum, cases of beer wine etc from Martin and Julie to save you carrying it.
If you are looking for a laid back casual island, but with 5 star accommodation then look no further. Im sure the owners have missed a zero off the price, so book now before they realise!!
