Grew up in Trinidad but was born in the United Kingdom where I also went to university and worked for a number of years. My profession is as a communications technology consultant specialising in Contact center and related areas. We began building our family home in Bequia around 2009, my dad grew up in St Vincent and we have family there so it really began as a retirement home for my parents.We have cousins who live in St Vincent and they have a house just down the beach. A lot of our cousins live in the UK and Bequia is the only place we tend to meet up over Christmas or summer holidays. We love Bequia and the lifestyle there and spend as much time as we can when I can get away from work. I am the Country Manager for a regional communications technology company ( Voice Outsourcing TT Ltd) so work is pretty hectic and Bequia is a great place to relax.

We built this property from the ground up as a retirement home for my parents. Renting really was secondary. Because we travel to St Vincent oftern we took special care when designing the property to ensure it is aestetically designed, modern and comfortable, definitely the standard of accomodation is very high and we are confident you will enjoy your stay.
One of the features of the property is the proximity to Lower Bay. Lower Bay is really the best beach in Bequia and it makes a big difference when you can just walk to the beach from your house.
We have an excellent housekeeper and gardener taking care of the property and they definitely go the extra mile to ensure guests are comfortable and have an insight into life in Bequia.
Although we are very close to the beach the house is set back in a half acre plot which borders the forest. The elevated position and the trees give the property a serenity which is pleasant to enjoy especially in the evenings. the proximity to the restaurants on the Lower Bay road are very handy when you want to eat out in the evenings.
