Bequia - the ultimate unspoilt paradise island.

What we loved about Tamarind at Bequia was the peaceful tranquillity and the complete privacy this villa offers. A truly luxurious villa that has every possible kitchen utensil you can imagine to compliment a fabulous kitchen! This was my first Christmas away from home and our hosts Dianne and John made it so much easier with little touches like home made mince pies and sausage rolls on Christmas morning! We even had a home cooked meal waiting for us in the fridge to enjoy on our first night. That said, your hosts are completely out of sight and separate from the villa - there if you need them but giving you complete privacy.

Drinking cocktails and admiring the fabulous view from the pool and deck area seem a world away now we're back home in the wet and windy UK.

I would highly recommend Tamarind Villa for luxurious relaxation !

“Perfection on Bequia”

I am usually able to translate what a place looks like on-line into what it will be in real life... Tamarind Villa was actually better. Great position overlooking Spring Bay. Terrific proximity to the charming Sugar Reef Hotel and Firefly Plantation for dinner. We walked into town many times a day- though that should be reserved for pretty intrepid and fit folks who like hills. We enjoyed it. The pool is perfect. The layout- perfect. The villa has everyting you would need for cooking and drinking. John and Diane were charming and when there was a tiny hiccup, they were there straight away to fix it. Not to mention, Diane greeted us with the most tasty Goulash- which was needed as I was starving. We own a rental villa so know what goes into it... They have done it right!

Stayed with some friends and the layout with bedrooms at either end of central living area worked really well, because it meant we still felt we had our own space. Fabulously well equipped (the kitchen was amazing), gorgeous views, beautiful decor. This villa was a delight and the generously proportioned outdoor seating area meant we could entertain other friends staying on the island in style - and with ease. The owners were welcoming, friendly and helpful...as if we needed any more plus points!

“The perfect villa”

Just returned from a wonderful stay at Tamarind. Diane and John were the perfect villa managers, and the villa is a dream. Waking up to the view of the pool and mountains every morning is just amazing. The villa has everything you need, and simply cannot be improved. Bequia is a gem of an island - sweet, unspoiled and authentic, with no monstrous hotels. We used Noel taxi throughout our stay and he was terrific - always bang on time and with a brilliant knowledge of his island. All in all, an incredible holiday and we will return .....

“Tropical Treasure”

We recently returned from a four-week holiday at Tamarind Villa on the beautiful island of Bequia. What better way to enjoy a bitterly cold Canadian winter than on a tropical island 3,700 kilometers away. We had heard rave reviews about Tamarind from friends who stayed there. All our expectations were exceeded.

The villa was gorgeous, inside and out. It is beautifully designed, built, decorated and maintained, and kept spotlessly clean with twice-weekly visits from Cass, who has a smile as wide as the island is long. The kitchen has every convenience and appliance you could want...far better equipped than my own kitchen at home.

John and Dianne, whose home is next door to the villa, are generous and gracious hosts. You feel like you are staying beside friends. They had a taxi to meet us at the airport and arranged our car rental and licences while on the island. They had a lovely evening meal waiting for us on arrival, as well as basic supplies to keep us going for the first couple of days so we had time to unwind and relax. When Dianne went to St. Vincent to do some shopping, she brought us back fresh red snapper filets and skinned them because she figured we wouldn't have a fileting knife. She was right. That isn't something I usually pack in my carry on. Just an example of the effort they make to go above and beyond for their guests.

While we tried many of the island restaurants, which were great, the outside dining area at Tamarind is so lovely, we often chose to have dinner "at home." And that really is the feeling that Tamarind imparts...the sense that you are at home. Your dream home.

I would highly recommend Tamarind for luxurious accommodation in a beautiful setting where you will be welcomed by gracious hosts who truly want you to enjoy your holiday and their island paradise. We will certainly be back.
