About Alan and Claire Walker

We're both 50+ and love to travel the world. But we also love returning to the beautiful island of Bequia. We designed and built Whispers because we hope, one day, to retire here.

Alan and Claire Walker purchased this villa in 2008

Why Alan and Claire Walker chose Port Elizabeth

We fell in love with the view from this location on our first visit to Bequia. Why? Because the view's expansive, includes both sea and land, and is constantly changing (wave movement, the blowhole, light conditions...).

By the end of that first trip, we'd bought some land and had started planning what we'd build as our long-term retirement home.

What makes this villa unique

We particularly love the views (see above), the pool, and the fact that we are tucked away from the noisier parts of the island - but only a 10 minute drive away from beaches, restaurants, and all our new friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“We absolutely enjoyed Whispers and our trip. Judy and Alan were very attentive and helpful (they even helped us find some fresh fish). As a point of reference, we have stayed on a number of islands renting various villas - everything was spotless and the starter provisions were an extremely pleasant surprise. Thanks so much for sharing your place and allowing such a terrific trip!"

Breathtaking Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a villa rather than staying at a resort and our first trip to Bequia. At first we were a little skeptical of the isolation but by day two we never wanted to leave!! I am a beach lover to the core but had a hard time leaving our own private oasis for it. It is exactly what you see in the pictures is what you get. Everything was top notch, clean and in working order. We cooked 2 meals in and brought back pizza one night and had all the utensils and equipment to do it easily. We have been to many beautiful places but I must say THIS is the most unbelievably amazing view we have ever had and you can see it from every room! We hope to stay here again next year!

Beautifully designed villa, mesmerizing views!

  • 5 of 5

Whispers Villa has magnificent views, gentle breezes and total privacy. Ideal for 2 couples, with 2 equivalent master ensuite rooms. The owners and local property manager maintain Whispers to a very high standard. The villa is spotless.

Location is very private & quiet, located high on Mt. Pleasant above Ravine Bay. Jeep rental is essential. The pool, gazebo, outdoor dining area & cover decks facilitate total enjoyment of breathtaking views. Whispers is so perfect, it is hard to leave during the day, but so wonderful to return to. Star gazing is awesome, so don't forget to turn off the lights and enjoy the night sky!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind comments, and we're delighted that you enjoyed Whispers. Just a quick note to anyone else reading this - there's also a third master-equivalent en suite downstairs, so you can bring a third couple too!

Romantic & Perfect in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, not overlooked and beautifully situated/appointed, Whispers is a place to get away from it all.

The views from the terrace are magnificent, straight over to Mustique and down the The Grenadines chain.

We hired a jeep for the week and once we'd got used to the steep, narrow roads on Bequia we found a couple of great beaches and some good restaurants and bars. Bequia is a jewel not to be missed - a bit lost in time so that you manage to totally unwind and kick back. If you want fast food and Starbucks this is not the place for you - but if you want Caribbean friendliness, great food, laid back/wonderful ambiance and great snorkeling then this is where you can find it all.

Whispers itself is a lovely 3 bedroom villa, with great facilities and well looked after/maintained. High quality accommodation, linens & towels. Well equipped with everything that you need, and the manager is really super and very helpful. The pool is heavenly and well looked after and the outdoor furniture is comfortable and also of high quality.

Sightings of iridescent hummingbirds and fireflies around the villa add to the romantic nature of the location.

The pictures on this site do not do full justice to just how wonderful this place is. When we return to Bequia (which we absolutely will) we hope to be able to stay here again.

This would have been five stars except for the lack of screens

  • 4 of 5

This was a lovely private house. A great kitchen. Lovely clean pool. Views that take your breath away. It would have been Five stars except for the lack of screens. The bugs were pretty bad. You definitely need a car.

Owner's Response: Hi there. Bug numbers do rise occasionally, and we're sorry you hit a bad week. We do of course provide plenty of personal repellent, plus house spray for when you close Whispers up at night - but they can certainly be an irritant. Glad you enjoyed the views, pool and kitchen!

Truly wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My mouth dropped as we parked our rental in the driveway, and looked up at this gorgeous home. We had the good fortune of staying here for two weeks. The kitchen was well-equipped, bathrooms perfect, beds and pillows so comfortable, and that pool that wonderful pool with it's gorgeous views...trees filled with hummingbirds, the ocean and blowhole, crazy. The gazebo is perfect for cocktails or just curling up with a book. Judy and Allan were terrific, really enjoyed their company, above and beyond. Sometimes it was hard to push ourselves up and out to see the beautiful island of Bequia , but we did. Recommend Macs for pizza, and Keegan's for hanging out (great chicken wings), the Reef had a great Pina Colada and a lobster puff appetizer. This villa and the island of Bequia was truly heaven on earth.

The tiny island of Bequia (pronounced Bekway) has a unique, magical charm which is hard to find anywhere else in the Caribbean. Just five miles long by two miles wide, and with fewer than six thousand inhabitants, it feels like home from the moment you arrive; friendliness is the watchword, and the pace is relaxed and easy-going. Bequia fulfils many dreams of the perfect small Caribbean island: beautiful sandy beaches where more than ten people may constitute a crowd, lush green hillsides, attractive little villages, hardly any traffic, places to get together and places in which to find that perfect solitude. This island is just perfect for a quiet, romantic holiday without a rowdy nightlife
