The Villa is located in the scenic island of Bequia oftern described as the 'real caribbean'. ' Friendly people, natural beauty, and island charm make Bequia a very special place. Known for years by sailors, it is now being discovered by travelers seeking a natural place to relax and unwind.' The Villa is located in the heart of Lower Bay less than 10 minutes away from Port Elizabeth by taxi or rented car. The covered pickup truck is a common taxi in Bequia and very practical. You benefit from the cooling breezes as you make your way around the island and are provided with an excellent view to take in the island beauty.
The Villa is situated in a forested and breezy spot about 100 meters up a gentle incline from Lower Bay. The views from the Villa's balcony are stunning. Lower Bay is frequently described as one of the highlights of the island of Bequia. Lower bay is a very good location for a family vacation, the beach is clean, and the sea is safe it even has a natural nursery pool created by a coral reef. Great bars/restaurants along this beach include Keegans, De Reef and Mango's where you can get refreshments and tasty reasonably priced local food. The highly rated Fernando's Hideaway, or Nando's is also just a short walk away.
Keegan's is the best value for a restaurant style meal in Bequia try the 'goat water' and the 'shark and bake'. When in season they have a great lobster meal at night.
De Reef restaurant has regular shows by local bands on the weekends and is a popular local hangout spot in peak tourist season.
Bequia and the Grenadines is internationally recognised for its fabulous diving and sailing. In the harbour you can arrange The Friendship Rose Caribbean Schooner Day Tours & Private Charters Through the Grenadines. Many persons say that these sailing trips are the highlight of their stay!
The Lower Bay area is really the perfect location to unwind. Peak seasons is 10th December to end of February and also the Easter weekend. Christmas and New Years are great in Bequia and the place really comes alive. Off peak or Low Peak is the perfect time if you literally want to have the beach all to yourself.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: Grew up in Trinidad but was born in the United Kingdom where I also went to university and worked for a number of years. My profession is as a communications technology consultant specialising in Contact center and related areas. We began building our family home in Bequia around 2009, my dad grew up in St Vincent and we have family there so it really began as a retirement home for my parents.We have cousins who live in St Vincent and they have a house just down the beach. A lot of our cousins live in the UK and Bequia is the only place we tend to meet up over Christmas or summer holidays. We love Bequia and the lifestyle there and spend as much time as we can when I can get away from work, Bequia is a great place to relax.
Why the Owner Chose Grenadines, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines:
We built this property from the ground up as a retirement home for my parents. Renting really was secondary. Because we travel to St Vincent oftern we took special care when designing the property to ensure it is aestetically designed, modern and comfortable, definitely the standard of accomodation is very high and we are confident you will enjoy your stay. One of the features of the property is the proximity to Lower Bay. Lower Bay is really the best beach in Bequia and it makes a big difference when you can just walk to the beach from your house. Bequia is very hilly but Francy Villa is really unique in offering just a gentle slope from house to beach. We have an excellent housekeeper and gardener taking care of the property and they definitely go the extra mile to ensure guests are comfortable and have an insight into life in Bequia.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Although we are very close to the beach the house is set back in a half acre plot which borders the forest. The elevated position and the trees give the property a serenity which is pleasant to enjoy especially in the evenings. the proximity to the restaurants on the Lower Bay road are very handy when you want to eat out in the evenings.
