My husband and I recently stayed in the Hibiscus Cottage at Tropical Hideaway in Bequia. Martin & Julie were phenomenal hosts and the property was absolutely stunning! We loved the Hibiscus Cottage because not only did it have a spectacular view on its spacious porch, it also had a kitchen so we didn't feel that we always had to eat out. Cooking our meals and eating on the porch overlooking the bay was actually one of our favorite things to do! On another note regarding the property, the infinity pool was extraordinary! We enjoyed relaxing in the sunshine quite a bit while we were there.
As we were doing a bit of island hopping during our holiday travels, Bequia itself was the highlight of our trip. While this was due greatly to Tropical Hideaway, Bequia was also our favorite island because it is not incredibly built up with tourism. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the island, meeting the local people and we felt we truly were able to live "island life". While there were people selling things here and there, no one was pushy at all. It was fun to experience the grocery store (where you buy eggs individually) and really engage with the culture of Bequia as we walked the streets. We found everyone to be helpful along our way. We enjoyed Princess Margaret Beach and Lower Bay Beach - two different afternoon trips that we took. Jack's beach front restaurant was delicious and right next to the action on Princess Margaret Beach. We also REALLY enjoyed Mac's Pizza - it was fun to order and have them deliver to Tropical Hideaway! The Bamboo Chute had the best bacon in the world - that is NO exaggeration!!! The new walkway from Princess Margaret Beach over to town was really neat and a great way to get from place to place.
Overall, Bequia and Tropical Hideaway were the absolute highlight of our trip! If you are even thinking about staying there, THINK NO MORE... it IS the right choice!
