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!

The only downside of staying at Tropical Hideaway, is you can spend too much time in and around the pool, and not explore the Island of Bequia and the beautiful (secluded) Beaches. The property is truly fabulous, and you can enjoy total privacy if you require. The hosts (Martin and Julie) are real professionals, and know how to provide an ideal holiday environment. I would like to return to this gem, but hopefully make the effort to spend more time exploring the Island!

It was so wonderful back then that we did not want to finish our carefully planned vacation in Mustique. We wanted to stay longer at TH. And since then we have returned time and time again. It's impossible to use enough superlative language with TH. We love the proprietors, Martin and Julie. We love everyone on the staff. And we love the 3 Bengal cats. So we are coming back for Christmas and the New Year. As the title of this review states, Tropical Hideaway and the little island of Bequia are addictive. So be forewarned. In our many trips to TH, we have watched Martin and Julie continually improve on what we first thought was near perfection. The packaged meals they now offer are better than most of the food you will get in local restaurants. The breakfasts on the upstairs patio are equally good and everything is reasonably priced. The landscaping is beautifully mature and lush. And some of the fresh fruit provided is grown on the premises. All we can tell you is that the over two hundred 5-star reviews are telling you the truth. Tropical Hideaway is just want the name implies. As veteran Caribbean travelers, we have never found anything even remotely like it.
