Property description

La Bella Vista @ La Dolce Vita is a private, spacious, quiet, one-bedroom apartment with tropical décor featuring local artwork that encompasses the entire lower floor of the villa. The bedroom is quite large with a very comfortable queen size bed, lots of storage, a desk and chair, with french doors to the gallery and views of the sea beyond. Wake up to the gorgeous view of the Bay and see the sun sparkling on the water. The eat-in kitchen is large and fully equipped with fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, kettle, food processor and mixer. The living room has a convertible sofa, allowing the apartment to sleep 2 more, or just additional space for lounging.
The long gallery and private dining terrace provide sweeping views of Spring Bay and the islands of Battowia and Balliceaux as shown in the photo of
the view from La Bella Vista. Sit on the deck, swim in the pool, enjoy the breezes and watch the palm trees sway. It is so easy to slide into island time here.
The hillside location is a 5-minute walk to the beach and offers spectacular views of Spring Bay and the Atlantic Ocean…, the closer views are of the old Spring Plantation with the coconut groves and the ruins of the old sugar mill, now part of the Firefly hotel.
Amenities: cable tv, dvd player, IPod dock, private telephone, WiFi computer access, swimming pool.
Twice weekly housekeeping and change of bedding and towels.
The bathroom has hot and cold water and a large glass shower stall. The bedroom and the kitchen have ceiling fans but with the trade winds and gentle breeze you rarely need them. The private dining terrace is equipped with table and chairs and a lounge, a wonderful hideaway to hang out with a book or have a nap.

La Dolce Vita is a few minutes walk from Spring beach, about 10 minutes walk to Industry beach, and about 30 minutes walk into Port Elizabeth. No matter where you walk you are surrounded by beauty and lush foliage.
Bella Vista is just over a mile from Port Elizabeth where its shops, boutiques, restaurants, banks, etc. are located. Rental cars are available from several sources and there are plenty of taxis available.

The people of Bequia are what make Bequia so special, we think. Bequians, though generally shy and reserved, love to meet new people and get to know visitors. Come to Bequia for a visit and when you return people will remember you and welcome you back.

The owners have two friendly small dogs, Ricky and Lucy.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: Greg and Liz are Canadians who both grew up in Toronto. We moved to Bequia full time in 1998 and have been renting out our apartment since 1999. Greg is a Doctor of Chiropractic and practices here in Bequia and in St. Vincent. Liz is an artist and craftsperson and does property management on Bequia for neighbors and friends.

Why the Owner Chose Port Elizabeth:
We fell in love with Bequia on our first visit here in 1988 and came back 3 months later to buy. We bought our 2/3rds of an acre at Spring and designed the first draft of the house on a napkin and thereby started the process. The house was completed in 1992 and we able to relocate full time in 1998.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Bequia is a special place and we love our location overlooking Spring Bay away from the hustle and bustle of Port Elizabeth and the busier beach areas. Spring is lovely and generally quiet, though there are a lot of nature sounds, the wind in the palms, the waves in the bay, birdsong, and at night tree frogs and crickets to lull to sleep.
