Thoughtfully designed with delightful artistic touches. Superior beds and linen regularly changed during our fortnight's stay. Sunsets from the balcony over a bay full of constantly changing boats were a highlight. Be prepared to walk steep slopes to and from the beach.

Our 3 week stay here was ostensibly to celebrate our Silver Wedding. We followed the suggestions of other visitors to Bequia and didn't hire a car, as we would usually, but used the services of Julian, the husband of the property's housekeeper Cas.
Cas & Julian were absolutely fantastic and even if we weren't going anywhere, we saw them both every day.
One important thing that is missed off the info, are the number of steps, from the "lane" to the apartment. I had just had surgery to my foot and had only been off crutches for 3 days before we came away. There are 78 steps from the apartment to the lane and a further 78 to the beach, if you go down via Jack's Bar. There are no steps if you go along the lane a little and through the trees to the beach. A good way to keep fit and there are convenient placse to stop on the way up!!! A bit of a hike with a case of wine or crate of beer, though we did manage!! Ask Julian about getting the beer from the beer factory and getting wine from the Welshman, Richard.
The Friendship Rose trips are great, we did one to Tobago Cays and one to Mustique. We also took the Fast Ferry - Jaden Sun- to Union Island, calling at Canouan & Mayreau on the way.
The outside showers are simply wonderful.
The terrace is a great place to watch the bay from and each morning and evening we counted the vessels in and out.
Wi-fi works best on the terrace.
Princess Margaret's Beach really is the best one on the island.
We were just at the start of the season, so some places weren't up and running.
Fernando's Hideaway was great, but booking is a must.
Can't believe it's taken me this long to write the review!
Would certainly go back again.
Bequia is no good if you want "everything on a plate". It is a small island, so the produce you can buy is dictated by what is shipped in!!
