“Great alternative to a hotel”
Reviewed 25 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

This was our 13th trip to Bequia. In previous years, we had stayed at the Frangipani, but decided to try something different. We spent 9 nights at the Shade of Blues Apartment and totally enjoyed the experience. We would certainly consider staying there again. The apartment itself is located on the second floor and has a separate entrance, large kitchen, two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, an outdoor shower and a large outdoor balcony with a stunning view overlooking Princess Margaret Beach and Bay. Incredible care has gone into the design of the apartment and choice of furnishings. The kitchen is very well-equipped. Access to the small downstairs swimming pool and an adjoining patio, as well as to the internet, is provided by the owners.

It is hot at night, but if you run the air conditioner for a short period of time and then open up the shutters, this seems to work fine (the owners ask that you not use the air conditioner extensively). LIke most places in Bequia, the apartment has shutters and no screens, which means lots of mosquitos. So, you will need to use repellent and coils/pad heaters. Most importantly, the mosquito nets over the beds were in excellent condition.

Some reviews have commented on the torturous number of steps from the road up to the apartment or down to Jack's Restaurant and the beach - around 180 in total from the beach to the apartment. Although a little daunting at first, this does at least burn off a few calories and there is the pool as a reward at the end of the journey. If you know Bequia, you may worry about being a little isolated (Jack's is the only restaurant on the beach), but the relatively new Princess Margaret walkway provides a quick connection to Port Elizabeth and all its restaurants and stores. There is also an easy path over to Lower Bay if you want a change of beach scenery. At night, you can arrange a taxi ride to the various restaurants with Julian, whom you will meet at the airport upon your arrival.

So, if you're looking for an alternative to a hotel and enjoy the Port Elizabeth side of the island, we cannot recommend enough this option.

Thanks for this review. Glad you had a great time staying at Princess Margaret. Will look forward to hosting you again. (The 180 steps are only if you are coming up from Jack's Bar!)

“Fabulous views”

Stayed 2 weeks in October and had a lovely time. Views are fantastic and the pool was a welcome cool down after the climb from the beach!
It's really a great spot to stay just above princess margarets beach and just behind jacks bar. Unfortunately due to recent storms, the Belmont walkway was broken and jacks bar was undergoing repairs, but what can you do about that? Just made us a bit more adventurous wading through the pristine sea to get to the fabulous plantation resort (great pizzas and lovely staff)
Use Julian, one of the local taxi drivers -very knowledgable and friendly and is very experienced at getting right up the driveway- very impressive!! His wife, Cass is the housekeeper and is lovely!!
The only thing I would prefer is aircon as we couldn't leave doors etc open as mosquitoes loved us.
The grounds man, ottley is really helpful too. Thank you all for making our stay on bequia great!!
