Make a holiday rental villa or property in Bequia, Caribbean your home away from home

Bequia; the ‘big small island’, is the largest of the Grenadine Islands of the Caribbean. There are less than 6,000 inhabitants which gives Bequia a unique and very homely atmosphere. Upon your arrival at a self catering Bequia property, you will receive an unbelievably warm welcome, and it won’t take long until you have relaxed into the blissfully slow pace of life, where your watch seems a complete irrelevance!

Bequia has a magnificent maritime heritage, which lives on strong to this day. There are almost as many boats as people in Bequia and arranging sailing lessons, boat hire or a chartered vessel to explore the picture-perfect coastline is extraordinarily easy from a Bequia property rental. The sailing around Bequia is absolutely magnificent, with reliable sea breezes keeping vessels happily touring some of the clearest waters anywhere in the Caribbean. If you take snorkels, fishing rods and scuba diving gear out with you, there is no limit to the entertainment you can have, as the warm Caribbean waters teem with marine life, making Bequia a diver’s paradise.

Away from the coast, Bequia is a fascinating island. When you are first settled into your Bequia villa, a great start to your holiday is to take the 3 hour Island Tour in the back of an iconic open-backed taxi. Completely tailored to your interests and will full, running commentary, the tour will show you the lush green meadows, thick forests, deserted hills and isolated villages which make up the island. Make sure you go to Hamilton Fort, the OldHegg Turtle Sanctuary and amazing Moonhole houses. However, to really explore the hidden treasures of Bequia, it is time to dust off your walking boots. There are many disused roads, trails and paths through the island, but remember to take your sunblock.

Evenings from a Bequia villa are simply magical. Whether you head to one of the fantastic beach cocktail bars, a local restaurant serving the finest of local delicacies or simply head down to the beach to watch the stars and listen to the surf gently caress the beach, I can think of nowhere in the world that can beat it!

So Perfect That It Is Almost Surreal

5 of 5
Almost surreal because you pinch yourself everyday thinking is it all real? Well, it is, and it is spectacular. A completely idyllic setting with lovely hosts. Martin and Julie are fantastic. They couldn't be more welcoming and it appears they have thought of just about everything relating to your stay. The well stocked and priced onsite store is such a great touch, offering dry goods, fish, meat, wine, spirits and more. They even have prepared meals ready to heat up in the kitchen- the cottage pie was excellent on the one day we were too lazy to cook or go out for dinner. As for the Pool House, it was a perfect place to stay. Large fully equipped kitchen, all the amenities of home, a gorgeous bathroom, 2 private patios and plenty of space all very well appointed and tastefully done. The more time you spend, the more you see the little details just everywhere. If I have it correct, it took roughly 12 years to build and a large reason why is the very high standards that were adhered to throughout. And then there is the pool. Utterly spectacular. You just have to experience it for yourself. Look at the pictures but realize that it is much better in person. Bequia is a perfect island for those who prefer to avoid tourist traps. Lovely people, great beaches that are easily accessible, plenty of nice dining out options, and no large crowds. You will often have an entire beach or a very large part of it to yourself. Not the easiest place to get to, but completely worth the effort. The SVG Air flights were also a lot of fun on a DHC-6 Twin Otter. This is by far the best place we have ever stayed. Many thanks to Martin and Julie, we can't wait to return.
