My husband and I stayed here after staying in different apartments in Bequia previously. We love the island, but a lot of the properties available to rent are on remote parts of the island which mean you have to drive everywhere. This spot was perfect for us. A two minute stroll takes you down to the water and from there another 5 minutes and you are in the town with restaurants, dive schools, supermarkets etc. The garden was great too - how many places can you pick mangos and oranges for your breakfast each morning?! The inside was decorated in a tasteful caribbean theme and the views are wonderful (esp at sunset). We will be back and will recommend it to all our friends.
The only mistake we made was to try to travel all the way to Bequia from London in one go. It is a long journey so I'd recommend spending a night in Barbadoes to break up the journey.
