We chose this property after an extensive search on the internet – we are experienced holiday villa renters and can be quite demanding – looking for comfort/luxury, excellent views, plenty of space, safety, cleanliness and good amenities. Ravenala House did not disappoint! Having reviewed the pictures of the property on TripAdvisor, we do not think the photos do it full justice – the views are quite simply stunning. The property is very well equipped and comfortable inside, with quality kitchenware/equipment, fluffy towels and cotton bed linen. Outside, comfortable chairs and loungers and a large terrace allowed us to enjoy the views of three bays (Lower, Princess Margaret and Admiralty) and the movements of boats and yachts below. The pool is well maintained and inviting, especially in the heat of the day, though actually the property’s location on the hill means there is invariably a welcome breeze. The house comes with a 4 wheel drive vehicle, which is handy for the roads in Bequia, which can be steep and unmade in places. Restaurants and bars are within easy reach in Lower Bay or a short drive away in Port Elizabeth, with plenty of choice. We cooked a lot for ourselves too – as the property has a well equipped kitchen and BBQ. We found swimming and snorkelling in the nearest bay glorious –warm & clear azure waters. Tim and Anne, the Owner/Managers and their team Jal and Shareena, looked after us really well – responding to specific requests fast, being there to give friendly advice and answer questions without being intrusive.
We had such a nice time that we will definitely be going back soon.
