Property description

This is our family home when we visit back to Bequia. Built by my sister Rachel on an octagonal design to catch the breeze but resist strong winds, it is the perfect spot to relax and unwind. The house is on two levels on the side of a hill on the windward side of Bequia, with views over Hope Bay to Battouia and Balliceaux and beyond. The main house consists of two ensuite bedrooms in the back half of the octagon and a large open plan living / dining area to the front half. The kitchen is open to the rest of the accommodation at one end (see photos.) There is a huge balcony wrapped round the entire front of the house, a perfect spot to sit and admire the view, or for an alfresco meal.

Downstairs there is a self-contained one-bedroom apartment, opening onto the pool area. The house and apartment are rented together. The pool has a large wooden deck laid round it and shares the views of the house. There are extensive gardens with a variety of flowering plants and fruit trees, as well as a large pond at which you can watch the mockingbirds. The occasional tortoise wanders through the garden.

Included in the rental is the old but serviceable Land Rover pick-up, with a cab seating 2 and seating for 4 on upholstered bench seats at the back. Local visitor’s driving licenses can be purchased at the Post Office on presentation of your home driver’s license. Hope Beach (inaccessible by vehicle) is down the hill on the windward side, while Princess Margaret beach is on the Admiralty Bay (leeward) side. Even the furthest point on the island (Moonhole, past the airport) can be reached in 20 minutes in the Land Rover.

Owner info

About the owner: Hope Crest belongs to Hilary (my mother) Rachel (my sister) and me, Ralph. My sister and I grew up on Bequia, and as we now live in the UK we all wanted to have a house so we could visit back more easily. My father Neil lives on Bequia and looks after maintenance, meeting guests, helping out with information and so on.

Why the Owner Chose Home Port: Port Elizabeth:
My sister Rachel built the house on its octagonal design to catch the breeze but resist strong winds. The main house is built on a single level, but to take advantage of the sloping ground there is a separate apartment downstairs by the pool. The apartment is included with the house rental.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Before building we spent some time sitting among the white cedar trees enjoying the Trade Winds blowing uninterrupted from the Atlantic. The view looks as though it has been designed, with Battouia and Balliceaux, two uninhabited islands framed in the wide ocean by the promontories on either side of Hope Bay. Hours can slip by while gazing at the view.
