Bequia Beachfront Villas
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Friendship
Reviewed 12 July 2006

When we planned our holiday in Bequia, we were looking for a bit of luxury, total relaxation, and to escape the trappings of commercial tourism, and our stay at Bequia Beachfront Villas fulfilled all our expectations and more.

We booked the one-bedroom apartment, which turned out to have all the home comforts, including a kitchen equipped to the highest standard including coffee machine, liquidiser and mammoth fridge and cooker. The bathroom and bedroom were equally impressive, with king-size bed, ample wardrobe space and brilliant shower facilities. (The three / two bedroom apartments which we viewed were also magnificent).

But it was the service and friendliness of the staff which made the difference, from the welcome pack of food and drink to the frequently changed fresh flowers, endless clean towels and thoughtful attentive (yet inobtrusive) gestures of Daphne assisted by Charmin. Nothing was too much trouble. Daphne was always happy to pass the time of day and never tired of my husband’s endless questions about the Island.

The greater part of our wonderful holiday (24th April to 8th May) was spent on the amazing veranda, watching the boats come and go in the bay or eating lunches of cooked Kingfish and Barracuda provided by the fishermen on the beach. (One of the fishermen, Michael, was also happy to take us on a boat trip along the coast and to visit neighbouring islands). We were in our element. The sun rose directly ahead inviting us for a swim in the mornings, (the sea was literally steps away) and the veranda provided shade throughout the whole day for the ultimate truly relaxing experience. We were at the very end of the beach, with no passers-by, and so it was like having our own private beach. Occasionally we saw the odd exploring beachcomber or local dogwalker, and one day a snorkeller waved at us and said ‘You guys have it all’. We agreed with him, as this was our sentiment exactly.

We did hire a car for a few days, but soon found that we could walk quite easily into Port Elizabeth to shop or for dinner, and that it was just as easy to catch one of the frequent ‘dollar buses’ passing by the Villa entrance. Taxis were in abundance and affordable.

Our holiday in Bequia was an altogether unforgettable experience which we will find very hard to beat. We would recommend Bequia to anyone who shares an aversion to ‘all-inclusive holidays’, and who values the opportunity to spend their holiday money amongst a community of probably the most friendly, deserving and appreciative people we have ever come across.

We can think of no better place to stay on Bequia than in Friendship Bay at the Beachfront Villas, which for us was a real ‘home from home’. Had we not wished to explore the Island and experience the excellent hospitality and restaurants (we loved the view and the food at the Devil’s Table, and the lobster at l'Auberge des Grenadines) we would have had no need (short of stocking up the fridge) to move from the spot ! I now have the view from the veranda - which I relished for a fortnight - as a screensaver on my computer at work, and we will most certainly return to experience it first hand again.

As a visitor to Barbados for thirty years, I grew tired of the relentless construction and increase in crowds. I remember as a small boy driving from Grantley airport through farm and fields to the west coast. These farms today are nothing but houses.

Bequia on the other hand, reminds me of Barbados many years ago. Beautiful beaches, English heritage, friendly people, and it is a pleasure to still see that there is a rustic Caribbean, with farm animals and roosters to hear early in the morning.

Needless to say, I plan on returning to Bequia often in the future, and staying at the beautiful Bequia Beachfront Villas, a first class, comfortable villa, with its warm, friendly staff. I wouldn't change a thing! I cannot say enough great things about Daphne. Her true role was "ambassador" or hostess. She always asked us if there was anything she could do. She helped us charter a boat to Mustique, buy some local fish, and answered any questions we thought of. Her husband, other staff, and Gideon, the taxi driver, was also thorough and professional.

We will be back soon.

We just returned from the most outstanding beachfront villa in Bequia,
a beautiful island off of St. Vincent, and the first of the Grenadines.
We traveled with four couples, and it was I that found Bequia Beach-
front Villas without knowing too much about Bequia. I did notice that
it was a Fort Recovery Resort, and that is what sold me. We have stayed
there many times in Tortola, and it was absolutly the "best." So I thought
I couldn't go too wrong. Well I expected it to be nice, but never dreamed
that it would be that impressive. It is directly on a 1 mile beautiful sandy
beach and coupled with the most fantastic view imaginable it was sheer
heaven. However, the house is impeccable. You enter a 40 ft. long
hallway (a true art gallery) which went into a huge living-room kithen
dining area and library. It is truly movie material. It opens up to
a spacious louging-eating deck looking out to the beach and gives
you a real feeling as if you are in the water. The kitchen incidently is
the absolute "end". Who would expect to find a very large custom built
kitchen (stainless steel equipment), a very fine huge dining table (also
custom built and the finest of furniture. The bedrooms are also "to die
for." They are huge, with french doors leading to individual very large
decks. They are furnished with the greatest of taste. I noted
the Ralph Lauren beddings, the bamboo tables, and some bedroom had
high beamed bamboo ceilings. You can not imagine how luxurious the
place is. I looked at the other villas (the one bedroom, and the two
bedroom) and they also are extremely large and beautifully furnished.
We also visited other hotel and villas' on Bequia, but none could compare
with this setting. Our holiday was more than we even dreamed of.

This was a family vacation. We could not have picked a better spot. The house was beyond our dreams. The space was enormous. Each room had a special personality. We loved the high ceilings, and extraordinary water views. We had all the privacy we wanted but were able to gather in the main area of the house without bumping into one another.

The island of Bequia is very low key. The people were friendly and the service in the house was outstanding. Our two favorite restaurants were Spring for lunch and Le Bistro for dinner. We will absolutely return.
