Why Cathi or AJ chose St. Vincent & the Grenadines

When you come to St. Vincent you find a very special island that feels like no other. The people are friendly and welcoming and genuine. The island is a agricultural island so the fruits and veggies are the best in the world. The Caribbean is warm and clear and healthy this far south, the reefs are amazing! The island and the drinking water are SAFE! The exchange rate is excellent making it affordable. We are below the hurricane belt making us a year round haven!

Ari and his wife Cathi were the perfect hosts and they could not do enough for us (including a dreadful 4.50am return trip to the airport in St Vincent. They can arrange all sorts of activities for you, including car hire and sailing trips and they provided the sort of person service you would probably not get in a 5* hotel.

Relaxing getaway - off the beaten path

  • 5 of 5

We 3 adults rented this comfortable and spacious 2 bedroom apartment for 2 weeks in February 2012 while vacationing in Barbados. the 2 apartments that they provide are well worth the money spent.

The apartments are below the owner's living quarters and it was handy to have them so available to us .

The accomodations are nicely furnished and supplied. Cool breezes kept us comfortable for most of our stay although we had both fans and A/C at our disposal. The views are exceptional.

St. Vincent is a beautiful island that has not yet been exploited by tourism and is a refreshing change from other tourist haunts. Its people are very friendly and accommodating. It is easily accessed from Barbados or any of the other neighboring islands by air and soon by ferry.

Cathi and A.J. are the perfect hosts and are well known in the local community. They provided us with a wealth of information about their island and were very accommodating in taking us to town or on a personalized tour. The casual pace made for a very relaxing holiday . The snorkelling was fantastic and easily accessible from the beaches.A pool would have made it perfect.

The 3 of us agreed that we would have to come back here again.

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned home in the States from my wonderful St. Vincent and the Grenadine Islands holiday at your property. It was truly above and beyond my expectations. From the lovely apartment accomidations in your beautiful home to the amazing views the island has to offer.

I thouroughly enjoyed the incredible landscape of the island. The hiking of the rainforest, beaches, palm trees and volcano all where above and beyond my expectations. The views and sunsets where breath taking! The mountainess lushness of the landscapes is really incredible and amazing.

Your snorkeling equipment was first rate. The ease of snorkeling and experiencing the coral reef was like a world of it's own. Never have I seen anything like that! Also, kayaking around Love Island and The Rock was exhilirating to say the least. What an awesome view and experience!

One of the biggest and appreciative surprises was your 5 - Star catering services. All the cusine and exotic food was incredibly prepared and most importantly tasted great. It couldn't have been better! Thank you for spoiling us with your cooking.

I definitely will be back! I highly and gladly recommend your property and services to anyone as well as my friends and family. Your knowledge and attention as well as helpfullness made this vacation my best one ever

loved it

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time staying with AJ and Cathi in St. Vincent. Great island, very pretty, very quiet, very friendly locals, great snorkeling in shallow warm clear water right off the beach and lots to look at. AJ and Cathi were so warm and accommodating, they took me snorkeling, got great fresh foods at the market and then cooked a feast every night. Great property. Very clean. great views. It's was a really fun and relaxing trip. Locals really were great, and no hussle for money ever! This island is so quiet and undeveloped. If you want to get away from the world for a while it's great. Don't go expecting a crazy night life. Only problem is it is a little harder to get to St. Vincent. Once the international airport is finished this island might be easier to get to but it might also loose some of the charm. When we went to the beaches there was hardly anyone there. Amazing. AJ and Cathi only have 2 rooms so you really get personal attention. They love to show off the island and will be sure you have a good time.

St. Vincent

  • 5 of 5

I have already recommended this property to friends and relatives. The apartment was very clean and spacious. The view towards Bequia was gorgeous. The owners were very helpful and knowledgeable about St. Vincent. The snorkeling was nearby and beautiful. The Botanical Garden and Montreal Gardens were beautiful. I could easily have stayed all day in either. The people of St. Vincent were friendly and helpful. Food was flavorful and reasonably priced. I would go back to this property in a heartbeat, and stay at least two weeks!
