Sights 'n Sounds is one of the most elegantly designed and furnished villas on Bequia. It has an open floor plan that marries outdoors with indoors and allows family and friends to easily migrate from the pool to the verandah to the kitchen and living room with ease.
The home is furnished and equipped as a permanent residence, not a rental. King plantation poster beds, the finest linens, 2 over sized linen sofas, palecek love seats, and solid teak outdoor lounge chairs and rockers.
The chef's kitchen leaves no tool to be desired. A 48' Viking range with double ovens will cook for any size party. Dine indoors or al fresco under the stars. A large stainless outdoor gas grill is conveniently adjacent to the kitchen and pool.
Each guest room is distinctly private. The lower guest suite has an adjoining half bedroom with bunk beds for families that like to keep young children in close proximity at night. The detached guest cottage has its own kitchenette, private verandah and outdoor rainwater shower. Each bedroom is air conditioned but has two sets of doors and windows, one set with plantation style louvers and one set with glass panes,thereby allowing guests flexibility to chose their preferred sleeping environment and mix of views, ocean breeze, security and/or air-conditioning. Two bedrooms are adjoined by large double sink bathrooms and private dressing rooms with ample built in closets and drawers for the most well packed traveler.
The expansive grounds are exquisitely manicured with an abundance of tropical foliage, flowers, plants, flowering trees and fruit trees. Pick fresh papaya, mango and grapefruit every morning directly from the property for breakfast or a snack. Oranges, key limes and avocado are also grown on the property and available to pick depending on the time of year.
The entire home is constructed from natural materials. The ceilings, doors, windows and living room floors are hand milled from stunning Brazilian Ipe' wood. Elegant coral wall finishes and tiles complement the rich wood grain to provide a bright clean and crisp island vibe. A massive wrap-around verandah and partially covered pool deck provide almost limitless options for lounging in sun or shade at any time of day. Ceiling fans adorn every single interior room and every square foot of covered verandah.

The best thing to do on Bequia is nothing. Relax by the pool at Sights'n Sounds, at your favorite beach or beach bar, and take plenty of books and all those journals that you don't have time to read at home. WIFI broadband access at Sights'n Sounds means your Kindle or IPad will keep you stocked with all the reading materials you can digest.
If you get bored or tired of relaxing and basking in the sun and cool Caribbean trade winds (Sight'n Sounds is on the windward side of Bequia, which is key for repelling mosquitoes and other island insects), there are plenty of outdoor activities on Bequia and the surrounding islands.
We enjoy hiking, snorkeling, scuba diving, gathering sea-shells, beach-bar hopping, sampling the local cuisine and exploring the numerous untouched beaches. Visiting the Turtle farm is a great experience for kids and adults.
From Bequia, there are many exciting excursion opportunities to neighboring islands and marine parks. Take the morning ferry to Saint Vincent, the largest island and heart of the Grenadines. On Saint Vincent, nature lovers will love visiting the rain forest and the Mesopotamia Valley. Take a half day to climb La Soufriere, a 4,000 foot high active volcano that was the birthplace of the Grenadine islands. On the trip back to Kingstown, visit the Montreal Gardens. They are some of the most spectacular tropical gardens I've ever seen, set in a totally natural and secluded environment. They are well worth the drive, which is also very scenic. But make sure the gardens are open before making the trek. If you don't have time to travel to Montreal Gardens, visit the Botanical Gardens in Kingstown. These are the oldest botanical gardens in the Western Hemisphere.
For snorkelers, divers, sightseers and sunbathers, a day trip by boat to the Tobago Cays are an absolute must. The Cays are a 50 square kilometer marine park that house some of the most pristine and richly populated tropical marine environments in the world. The Cays are surrounded by 5 small uninhabited sand capped islands that are fantastic for sun bathing or an afternoon picnic. On your way to or from the Cays, stop by Salt Whistle Bay on Mayreau Island for lunch at the beach-front Salt Whistle Bay Club. Mayreau is the smallest inhabited island of the Grenadines, with an area of about 1.5 sq. miles and a population of about 300. The population is centered in the village of Old Wall, located on a hilltop in the south-west of the island.
We always enjoy spending a day on Mustique. Have lunch at the Firefly hotel, which serves perhaps the best food in all of the Grenadines. After lunch, ask owners Stan or Elizabeth to phone a cab to take you exploring beaches on the island. On of our favorites is Macaroni Beach. If you have interest to explore homes of the rich and famous, visit the Mustique Company rental offices and tell them you have interest in renting a villa next season. They will escort you on tours of a few homes. Some are truly over-the-top. You can also arrange to ride horses on Mustique, which includes beachfront and inland trails. Stop by at world renowned Basil's Beach Bar for a drink and snack before boarding your boat back to Bequia.
For golfers, Canouan Islands boasts a Fazio designed championship course. Canuoan is about 20 miles from Bequia and is accessible by boat of air.
There are numerous uninhabited islands and secluded beaches throughout the Grenadines. Charter a speed boat for a day and ask your guide to explore beaches or snorkeling sites. There is always something new to find and interesting to see.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Angela and Tom live in Baltimore MD with their two sons ages 8 and 2. Our oldest son loves, loves, loves coming to Bequia and made his first trip to Bequia when he was 2 months old. He enjoys being at Sights'n Sounds so much that many days he refuses to leave for the beach, as he prefers to stay at the house and swim/play in the pool. Angela and Tom designed, built and furnished Sights'n Sounds over a period of about 4 years. We christened Sights'n Sounds over New Years 2006. Every decision and detail was meticulously scrutinized and managed. Tom even made an on-site visit to the rain forests of Brazil to hand-pick the Ipe' lumber for construction. Angela's sophisticated eye for design and attention to detail is evident in the harmony of the home and its furnishings. The home is elegant, yet comfortable and warm. Caribbean festive colors are used as accents and not overpowering. Colonial plantation style hardwood pieces are mixed with coastal living style slip covers and wicker. We love for guests and families to be able to experience the special joy that Sights'n Sounds and Hope Bay bring to us.
Why the Owner Chose Hope Estate, Port Elizabeth, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines:
The first time Tom visited Bequia he was a guest of the owners of Hope Estate. It was, literally, love a first sight. He decided the first morning he saw the sun rise over Hope Bay that he would own a property on that very spot. Several years later he purchased the land under Sights'n Sounds. He struggled for an entire week to decide between buying on the leeward side of Hope Point which overlooks Hope Bay, or the Windward side of Hope Point that overlooks the north side of Bequia island. Each day, he spent hours traversing from one side to the other, walking the property and gazing over the horizon. Finally, on his last night, after consuming possibly an entire bottle of rum, he decided it might be a good idea to survey the properties at night. At 1:00am in the morning, he inspected both lots, and as he was navigating the steep terrain he tripped and broke his glasses. He realized the next morning that perhaps breaking his glasses was a sign, and that instead of just looking at the lots, that he should focus on using his other senses to make a decision. So he went back out to the lots his last day on Bequia, stood on each parcel, closed his eyes and listened. The choice became immediately clear. The soft breeze rustling the tall trees that adorn the leeward side of Hope point. The steady cadence of the surf crashing on Hope Beach 350 feet below. The birds in the trees. And the peaceful silence.......Sights'n Sounds.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Sights'n Sounds on Hope estate is very private, yet convenient to town and Bequia's leeward beaches. We have not seen another home on Bequia which is furnished and equipped in quality that rivals Sights'n Sounds. The home is also designed to be family friendly and safe for young children. Finally, there is no better staff on Bequia than Joy and Felix Hutchins, and Kelson. Joy will pamper you as if you were staying at the Four Seasons. Felix will insure that everything works and if you break it, he'll fix it. Felix actually built the house; really. So there is nothing you can break that he can't fix.
