Amitabah visit was first class in its entirety. My compliments to Grenadine Escape staff and special thanks to Amitabah's butler/custodian/jester Jerry. He and his crew made the visit most extraordinary for 12 guests. Kudos to all.

This stunning 3 bedroom 3 bathroom villa, set in beautifully kept lush gardens, has amazing views over 2 beautiful bays on the Atlantic coast of Bequia. The 2 pools are bathed in sunshine from dawn, with a covered shaded area to sit a sip cocktails.The villa great wrap around balcony to sit a view islands on the horizon. Loved the open plan large kitchen/dinning lounge area which can be opened out onto the spacious balcony, where outside dinning is a must.
All the bedrooms are done out in cool white's with splashes of colour, with vaulted ceiling, extremely comfy beds, and fabulous bathrooms. Patricia the house keeper was great, she cooked for us, kept the place spotlessly clean and was happy to accommodate your needs.
We would not only recommend this amazing place to family and friends but hope to return to this stunningly beautiful rustic island again soon.

Thanks for your kind mail. The location, the house, the beach and the people around are all very nice and we are enjoying our stay a lot. We have been in a bit passive mode so we opted for cooking instead of dining out and it is still fantastic. Everything is fine 🙂

Thanks once again, best wishes David

Lara, it's wonderful! Joy and Felix are really great, the view is amazing and the house is way more spacious than we need, but lovely. We haven't used to beach path yet, but drove to Lower Bay for swimming/snorkeling and have explored around a little bit. Met Robin today and met Kelson yesterday. All of them are really nice people.

We are indeed basking in the TLC we get from Patrick. His meals are terrific. I've taken to photographing the dishes for my cordon bleu friends back home. And he is very helpful when things go awry, as when my cell phone ran out of funds, and I had forgotten at home my top up info. He offered us the use of his phone which I use in emergencies only. He delayed dinners when delayed flights and ferry schedules screwed up our friends' arrivals. Now I use skype, & face time as well as a new gmail account to connect. Trinidadian friends laila & Michael and my relatives Neal, Sarah & Mac were so happy to have the experience of the beauty of Bequia & Patrick's delicious cuisine. It really is a paradise.

We prefer the step path to the road for getting to the beach. The steps were initially rather intimidating, not at all like ours, the gradient of which is only half what this one is. But it is a good cardio workout for a senior about to celebrate her 75th next week . Laila, 76, who has an injured knee, used her brace for the climb, & found therapeutic relief in the exercise. Last evening Peter & my brother Mac, who arrived on Monday, walked up to Ivor's house to make the acquaintance of the Lewis-Cappes. I was happy to remain behind & skype friends.

We spend 3 or 4 hours each day on the beach, and are pleased that the winds & undertow have lessened , and the sea bathing is lovely. We are not touring much at all. Nor are we eating out except for a couple of meals. None can compare with Patrick's. For our anniversary dinner last Sat, he did us a four course meal with callalloo soup, bruschetta, curried lobster with salad, and the crowning glory, fondant for dessert, which we had more of for the last 2 dinners. With champagne, if course.

For another meal he surprised us with was a codfish sauté with breadfruit which I 'd not had for decades. Shrimp risotto, or delish Caesar salad for lunch, etc etc we've not had more than 2 dishes more than once. He tailors the meals to our needs perfectly.

Last Wed we were delighted to meet Avril and chat with her & Robin about your villas. We also met Thomas Dehen, who told us about the next phase of Cassava development.. We have also been in touch with the Glasses, friends of Laila's. Kelly & Jankey have homes in La Pompe, a yacht & a private plane. We were given a tour of the Hazells' condos. We were made to feel so much at home on the island.

So as we begin the wind down of this heavenly rest, we will have unique memories of the ambience of Cassava & it's terrific staff.

So thank you , my dear. I hope your business thrives, as you have a lot to offer.

Just got home…. Very depressed to be back, but we really loved Bequia so much and thank you so much for your help in finding Sugar Reef.

I can see why you love the island so much… We will definitely come back.

``Sights and Sounds villa is the perfect place to escape a hectic world. It position above Hope Beach and looking towards Mustique is stunning. The villa itself is spacious and beautifully finished and furnished. It harmonizes with the island surroundings and makes the best of its position. The best bit was the welcome given by Lucille of Grenadine Escape and the staff of the villa. They made it feel as though we were staying in our own home. As for Bequia, well I have fallen in love with it. I am torn with keeping it a secret and telling everyone about it. Already planning a return.``

My girlfriend and I stayed at Burke house, on February 2013. We had such a great time.
The house is so charming. The views from the terraces and from the bedrooms are outstanding. The fresh breeze coming from the sea always refreshed the house. It was wonderful to wake up in the morning and sip a cup of coffee looking directly at sea.
The privacy was complete, such relaxing and beautiful.
Marva, the housekeeper has been marvelous. She cooked for us great dishes: lobsters, barracuda, fresh fish, bread fruits and so many others delicatessen. She has been always ready to help us in our request.
Lusane and her husband, the owners, are a very friendly couple, that were always present in case of need to provide all the help and the assistant we could need.
Bequea is a small great island, with nice beaches, good restaurants and some small shops that can provide you with excellent food from abroad or great fruits and vegetables from the island.
Staying there it has been like staying in paradise for two weeks.
We hope to be able to come back one day!
A final special thanks to Lucille who helped us with all the information we could need and greeted us at the airport with a bottle of fresh water.

Lara was instrumental in the sale of our property. The sale was no small affair, as it was conducted between three different countries. Lara's coordination of the viewings, negotiations and final sale alleviated a considerable amount of stress.

Thank you, we had a really lovely break and relished in all Bequia had to offer. The Villa was perfect and we made the most of all the home comforts.

I am back home now, sadly, after an amazing trip to Bequia. We really had a great time and everything went very smoothly thanks to your great organisation. Chris and Doleen where great and we felt very well taken care of. We loved the island and will hopefully return someday maybe with some friends next time. Thanks again for all your help, I will definitely be recommending Bequia, Grendine Escape and the house to anyone who will listen.

``Dear Lara,
Mangwana has been absolutely amazing! We have had a wonderful stay on Bequia and I hope will be back again soon. We will certainly recommend Grenadine Escape to our friends and colleagues -- Lucille has been a terrific help and a pleasure to work with.
A very happy New Year to you -- best regards,

“Heaven on earth”
We had a wonderful holiday in Bequia. Windsong was the perfect villa for us. It's hard to make yourself leave the property it's such an oasis. Patricia, the housekeeper, was wonderful and the house is laid out in a way that she could do her laundry and her cleaning and we didn't even know she was there - except for the results afterwards! Waking up with the sunrise coming up over the ocean followed by a morning dip in one fo the two pools and then the fresh island made banana bread was a magical experience. Grendadine Villas did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable, from picking us up at the airport to having a delicious dinner waiting for us when we arrived! You definately need to rent a jeep as the hill up to the house is quite steep. There are two restaurants nearby and one of the nicest beaches on the island at the bottom of the hill. We will be staying here again! 25 years and counting of coming to the island!

Lucille, a huge thank you for all you did to make our holiday such a success. The arrangements were all put together perfectly and efficiently , we could not have asked for more.

We had a wonderful time at Dragonfly and we really loved the island.
First the island... stunning scenery which is unspoiled and dramatically beautiful, even where it has been built upon. Pretty in places, wild in places, and appealingly a little rough around some of the edges so it does not feel like its presenting too much of a 'prepared' surface to visitors. The islanders ( little kids, old ladies, fishermen, young Rasta guys...) seemed to genuinely welcome us when meeting on the road/ beach/ pathway, they were kind , helpful and fun, which made it even more of a pleasure to explore. And there is a lot to explore as the terrain of the island makes it much bigger than it appears at first. Gideon's handover lesson about our 4WD and low ratio gears was very much needed !! The lack of litter anywhere is perhaps a small point but shows people are taking a pride in the place. The places and things we loved would be a very long list. It is a very special place and we hope you lucky islanders can hang onto all that over the years under inevitable pressure from more of us visitors...

Very best wishes,

Cathy, Charles, Joe, Olivia and Cat

Good morning. All is perfect here.
Btw the diving here is excellent!

Before our fab holiday becomes a distant memory I thought I’d get this email to you!

Our experience with you and Lucille at Grenadine Escape was second to none. You both looked after us exceptionally well with no moans or annoyance at the constantly changing spec. Your recommendations and help were utterly invaluable and very much appreciated: from flight panics to lost phones, ensuring a hire car was at the airport to meet us and sorting a driving licence for us.

Our first week at Burke House was truly magical. Not only is the location absolutely stunning but the house really encompasses the true Bequia feel: relaxed, genuine and unique. No, it does not have the hot and cold running comforts some people expect and yes, there are a lot of stairs but we firmly believe that it is the better for it. Besides with views like that (including the loos and showers!), who cares! We are also utterly in love with Marva. The way she looked after us was exceptional: from subtle, surreptitious housekeeping to advice on buying lobster at the fish market, Marva’s help was invaluable. She really was the icing on an already scrumptious cake.

Thank you again for all your amazing help and a wonderful holiday.

Hi Lucille,

We had a great sale trip yesterday and our stay here on Bequia has been really good and relaxing. All 9 of us have really enjoyed our stay at beautiful Villa Helianthus and all other parts of the island that we have visited.
Bequia is truly a wonderful place and we hope to be able to return some day.
Thank you for all your help before and during our stay.
Today its time to go back to reality.

Kind regards,

Peter Abrahamsson, Sweden Helianthus - Bequia
First of all thank you for making all the arrangements for what we both described as a holiday of a lifetime.Although we have rented houses and villas in Europe and North America, this was the first time we had done so in the CaribbeanAll the travel arrangements ran so smoothly thanks to your expertise and you have an absolute treasure in Lucille who is as knowledgeable as she is charming. We appreciated little things she did, such as arranging for the boat to pick us up at Princess Margaret Beach when it was delayed on the last day in Bequia rather than have us sit around with our luggage packed in a cleared and cleaned house! Mustique and ti'Soleil were spectacular in every way. I am so glad that we came to it after Baliceaux House rather than before as anything after it would have had a very hard job competing with its perfection. The staff of Hyacinth, Dawn and Jeffrey work phenomenally hard to ensure that everything runs smoothly and that their guests have a wonderful time. The villa is beautiful and the island has memorable beaches. We fell in love and will certainly want to return either with a few friends to ti'Soleil, or if in a multi-family group to one of the larger villas.

Well we had the best time ever and loved Bequia everybody was so nice and Lucille was great. Would love to see you at some point Kirsty has offered supper at her flat for you Molly and me and we could have a chat. We think we will want to go back next year for New Year but Moonhole was wonderful but quite a long way from everything so I want a house ideally above Princess Margaret Beach if at all possible and again only four rooms but would love to meet you and just generally discuss. Not sure when you are going so let me know if you have a night in London or not.

Many many thanks for the best holiday!

Love Julia

Grenada is a great holiday location, it suited us really well. The lack of large scale corporate tourist brands creates a nice authentic feel. I grow up in Jamaica and have travelled lots of the Caribbean but have never spent much time in Grenada. So it was a real pleasure to spend time on a island that felt like Jamaica was and sadly is no more. We felt the kids were safe, the beaches were great and the calabash services combined with the villa was perfect. We will definitely bear grenadine escapes in mind for our next visit.

Hi Lara. Our entire trip was indescribable. Everything was perfectly awesome. The beauty of the places and people were simply stunning.....

I want to personally thank you for everything you have done for us. You delivered on the most amazing and romantic trip that anyone could have asked for on a honeymoon. It was simply perfect!

We really appreciate all the support and planning you helped us with to make this trip a dream come true!

Always take care, be safe and look forward to working with you again soon.

Hi Lara, I am so glad that you prompted me, I have been meaning to email you since we got back. We LOVED the experience. Absolutely loved it. Considering we both work in travel it is always difficult to find an experience that exceeds our expectations, but this certainly did. The villa was absolute heaven and every part of the process was flawless. Truly fantastic experience. Thank you!

“Luxury Caribbean relaxation”

We stayed at PSV as part of a 3-island holiday in the Grenadines arranged through Grenadine Escape (recommended). PSV is a resort island, bigger and certainly hillier than a Maldivian island but with a similar kind of philosophy. The island is lovely, with beautiful beaches and great views over the channel across to Petite Martinique and other islands, especially from the bar/restaurant area. It was pretty windy on one side of the island but easy to find a calm shelter and hammock with lovely sand and clear blue water on the other. The staff were all very helpful and friendly, and any queries soon dealt with by Rosanna, the very efficient Guest Relations Manager. We loved the food, and the fairly-new chef, Charlie, is responsible for some really imaginative dinner menus and tasty food. Good wine list too, if a bit pricey when VAT and service charges are added on the final bill.
The bizarre system of leaving messages and flag signals for drinks, picnic lunches etc actually works very well. The distances are a bit far to carry lots of stuff to and from your chosen beach spot all the time, especially if it’s very hot, but there are always buggies around to provide transport.

We love snorkelling and we found the snorkelling around PSV pleasant but not mind-blowing. For a treat, we’d recommend a trip to the Tobago Quays with Jeff on his lovely yacht “Beauty” which is anchored in the channel (along with several other fancy and less fancy boats). He knows the spots where there is beautiful snorkelling, and a turtle experience is pretty much guaranteed. Magical.

PSV has new owners since the tragic death of the previous one. There are plans to upgrade all the rooms later this year when the resort closes for a couple of months. Already, work is under way on a new spa and beach restaurant. We’d say that the upgrades are timely. Many guests, not surprisingly, come from the States and like to return. We’d not been to PSV before but it seemed to us that its future was in good hands.
It’ll be exciting to revisit.

I wanted to thank you both for all the assistance and kindness in looking after us for our recent holiday at Bali House. Some year we will want to go back but we like exploring and there are new and different islands to check. Next year we have rented a place on Tortola.
Please thank the owners for their hospitality. It is a pity they have to sell since it is such a wonderful place!
I attach a picture which now adorns a coffee table book of pictures we put together. You may use it if you like.

My wife and I have worked with Lara Cowan since 2006 on villa rentals and now in the sale of Bali House. Grenadine Escape has been very effective in producing quality renters and following through to ensure a great experience between client and owner.

I chose Lara as our listing broker because her company maintains exceptional contacts between the local bureaucracy and international market. Our experience has been completely positive. We continue to be impressed with the professionalism and service of Grenadine Escape. Grenadine Escape has made serious inroads as to the marketing of Bequia as a destination, their press exposure is excellent and we have our property on the books of top global agencies. We are hopeful of a quick sale. I have no doubt they are acting as one of the top real estate brokers in the West Indies.

``Bequia is my favourtie place in the Grendaines so far, very chilled out with amazingly friendly locals. The land is so lucious and being in Humminghbird villa we must have had the best view on the Island, it was so incredible we didn't want to leave it, set up in the hills looking out to see.``
A. Beaumont Tibet Hummingbird - Bequia
Tranquility was absolutely magical! Lusan made us feel truly welcome, Sasha and Hyacinth looked after us brilliantly and Jed the parrot behaved impeccably. As a family we fell in love with the house -- the simplicity, the views, the cooling breeze and the always-deserted Moonhole Beach. Our boys (11 & 8) were in heaven -- swimming, fishing, iguana-hunting and exploring in total safety -- it was a though they were living in a Gerald Durrell novel for 3 weeks.

As for the island -- we totally loved it and, like many I am sure, hope that it manages to preserve its unique combination of unspoilt and friendly comfort. We loved some of the wildness on the East coast, made great friends in the Rasta market and spent most evenings watching the sun go down from Princess Margaret Beach as we sipped rum punches...thank you for everything. You played a major part in giving us a truly unforgettable and extremely special time in our lives.

Your staff are superlative – the best I’ve encountered on the island. They looked after us beautifully with both efficiency and good humour. But I fear we kept poor Tyrone busy because once we’d sampled his food we weren’t too interested in ever eating out!
