About Pearl Winsborogh-Simons
I was born in Grenada but have lived in the UK since a young child. My background is in publishing but my husband and myself have renovated many properties in the UK. Currently we live in Lyme Regis, Dorset UK where we also have a holiday house.
Pearl Winsborogh-Simons purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Pearl Winsborogh-Simons chose Pretoria
If you're looking for a private villa that is not on an estate and captures the real Caribbean atmosphere then Ginger Lilly is for you. The house is secure and well looked after by our housekeeper and gardener. All amenities, shops and restaurants are in easy reach.
What makes this Villa unique
Having visited many Caribbean islands we chose Bequia to build our villa. It's a unique island for many reasons. It attracts international visitors being the gateway to sailing the beautiful Grenadines. The neighbouring island of Mustique with its high end tourist market has close links to Bequia and is easily accessible. The island maintains a strong traditional heritage and even though many residents from abroad have made Bequia their home the island has not lost any of its character.

Renting a piece of Paradise
This property was everything and more. The view can not be accurately described and changes daily..ships, weather, birds. 4 bedrooms, en-suite, for 2 couples was more than adequate. Fairly well equipped kitchen, linens. The negative is a 20% incline road to get up to the house. We taxied with groceries and walked it a few times....brutal! Some slightly worn spots on furniture and Master shower sprayed beyond the shower area. We loved the resident cat who stayed our whole week. Barking dogs thru the night and a club at the bottom of the hill played LOUD Rap music until 2AM on weekends, but not the fault of Gingerlilly owners. We had free excellent WiFi and cable Netflix and Amazon movies. We would love to stay again!
Glad to know you enjoyed Gingerlilly and do hope you’ll be able to visit us again in the future. !!
Absolutely amazing property! It is even more beautiful than the pictures depict! Huge property in which all the rooms open to beautiful views of the water. The pool is a great addition to the other amenities and was beautifully maintained. Close enough to town and great restaurants easily accessible! St. Vincent is a hidden gem in the Caribbean and I will be returning in the future!
I’m very pleased you enjoyed Gingerlilly and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
This is the best place to enjoy a great view of admiralty bay and relax. We really enjoyed ocar as it's close to the main attractions and we prefer a little bit more actions than the quietness of Spring. Watching the different boats pass-by was entertaining.
The villa was well maintained.
Beautiful Place but Mosquitoes Galore
We stayed here for 6 days. Wonderful, spacious 5 Star accomodations with equally 5 Star views. The pool was absolutely wonderful especially at night. Ginger Lilly was very well equipped with all the comforts of home. Mosquitoes were rampant however. My kids got bitten under big time and we almost had to leave early on this account. The Property Manager was very accomodating and provided some lamp zappers that helped a bit. We bought up the whole local pharmacy to curb the mosquito bites and also found the mosquito coils to help somewhat. I would recommend this place however be prepared for the mosquitos particularly in the off,hot season when we were here (ie August). Recommendation to the owner and manager to equip the home for mosquitos.
Spectacular views, Amazing house!!!!
The four of us stayed from Feb 25 to Mar 8. The house is very well appointed and has the most spectacular view of Admiralty Bay, Princess Margaret Beach and Lower Bay. The house always has a a cool breeze and the pool is absolutely beautiful. The Ocar area is more lively than Spring, Lower Bay or Friendship. We have stayed in several villas, and hotels all over the island and Ginger Lilly is one of our favorites.
The villa was well maintained and the cleaning/maintenance staff were friendly, helpful yet non-invasive.
I would definitely recommend Ginger Lilly, it is a great place to relax during the day or evening but close enough to the action to walk (or drive/cab) to the restaurants and bars when you need to get out.
Thank-you for your positive feedback and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Ginger Lilly. Bequia and Ginger Lilly are very special to us and we do our best to make sure that our guests have a memorable stay.
Thanking you again for choosing to stay at Ginger Lilly.

Bequia lies nine miles south of St Vincent. The island is oriented to the sea, retaining the age-old traditions of boat building, whaling and fishing. It is the largest of 32 Islands and cays that make up St Vincent & the Grenadines. This island neighbours Mustiqe and Cananoun and is a popular meeting place and anchoring spot for sailors as it's considered the gateway to the Grenadines.
Port Elizabeth is a lively habour with many shops, bars and restaurants. In high season you can enjoy a fun night life with live music most days of the week. Mustique blues festival in February, New Years Eve and Bequia Easter regatta are extremely popular events.
The sailing is considered the best in the world and trips to Tobago Cays marine park, St Vincent and the islands are in easy reach. Bequia is dotted with beautiful beaches, the house looks directly onto Princess Margret Beach and Lower Bay the two most popular beaches, but many more excellent for scuba and snorkelling are in easy reach.
