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!

Things to do on holiday in Bequia, Caribbean

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. Rated among the best places to dive in the Caribbean, Bequia has over 30 easily accessible dive sites, where vividly coloured corals, fish and extraordinary creatures thrive among the caves, wrecks and reefs which surround the island. Guided snorkelling trips are also highly popular, available from almost every dive shop in Bequia.

You can also catch your supper during your stay in a self catering Bequia villa. Huge marlin, tuna, barracuda and kingfish are regularly caught off the coast of Bequia, and there are a good variety of fishing centres to choose from. Reliable trade winds also mean that windsurfing and kayaking are very popular from property in Bequia.

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!

Had a really lovely 2 weeks here. Lusan is really helpful and great at local knowledge.. anything you need to know she will know! Doro and wendyah are the 2 ladies that looked after us and they were superb! Food was great and they were very accommodating and understanding of our disabled family member too. Cannot wait to stay here again, the island is unspoilt and gorgeous.. totally recommend the bequia music festival and the locals are the friendliest people you will ever meet!! Faultless x

Truly an amazing experience

5 of 5
From the moment we thought about booking our stay at Tropical Hideaway to the second we left Tropical hideaway we have nothing but great things to say. Julie and Martin made sure ,without a shadow of a doubt , we had the best vacation and best experiences from start to finish. The accommodations were perfect! They made sure your happiness and comfort were all thought about. We stayed in the palm cottage. It was perfectly clean. Our fridge was stocked with everything to start us off. We wanted for nothing. We had towels and food and coffee and beverages ready to go. We were greated at the door to Tropical hideaway with big smiles from Martin and Julie with Martin holding a tray of his fabulous rum punch! They took the time to show us our room and they let us know where everything was. We spent our week with 3 other couples we knew and we all just relaxed for the first time in years! We never ever wanted to leave the pool! Martin and Julie had a phone in the pool bar with menus so you can order food. Their store was packed with food and drinks and all we had to do was walk up the steps to get what we wanted. When we wanted to take a boat trip they helped arrange everything. They got us in contact with the nicest and best taxi driver I have ever met and he helped us the whole trip! He was amazing!! They helped arrange for Elfic the singing chef to come and cook for us. Julie and Martin joined us for dinner and music. It was a magical evening that I will never forget! We ate and drank some of Martins rum punch and Julie and Martin made us dessert! Elfic sang the sun down and with the amazing views from Tropical Hideaway. I honestly cannot say enough about how wonderful Tropical Hideaway and Julie and Martin are! I do not have 1 single negative comment to say about our 6 nights there except that i wish I could have stayed longer.
