I stayed here for a total of 7 weeks, initially in the larger apartment with friends and after they left I moved into the smaller apartment. Both were well equipped and very clean. Conrad and Ina are very hospitable and do everything they can to ensure that you have an enjoyable and rewarding visit. They are always looking at ways to improve their guests' experience, and whilst I was there installed a WiFi booster which ensures there is now a good signal throughout the property. The pictures show that Rainbow Castle has wonderful views, which means it is high above the town and the road is steep which is not a major problem going down, but is quite strenuous coming back! I am over 70 and usually walked it, but a taxi is quite cheap $15 EC, which is less than £4 or $5 US. The closest beach is only 20 minutes walk and there are others further on, I walked to Lower Bay in about 35 minutes from the apartment and across the island to Industry and Friendship Bays in 45 minutes and so if you like walking and are fit the whole island is available to you by foot from Rainbow Castle.
The Cedar Retreat rental was as perfect as described in the listing. It is quite a unique and private structure and location, excellent views with a delightful breeze at all times. The caretaker, Robin, was available to help, but we had no problems. He did pick us up at the ferry and took us back to the ferry when it was time to leave. It was our first time in Bequia, and we found it charming and plan on returning again. We didn't end up needing the guest cottages on the property because the people we invited to come with us couldn't come, but they looked very nice as well. This is very private location, and with just two of us, it was quite a romantic getaway. The property comes with a Suzuki 4x4, which is necessary to get around the island and into town. The many beaches are stunning, and we did a sailing excursion to snorkel with sea turtles in their natural habitat, which was fantastic.
This property was well described in Peter Roren's write up and it was all very accurate. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a combination of adventure and relaxation. The setting is blissful and stunning and the property was clean and well maintained, as well as architecturally fascination. The skylight above the bed made us feel like we were sleeping under the stars.
