The villa and team at Sights N Sounds gave us, simply, the best homestay experience we've ever had on a vacation. Our group (two adult couples) enjoyed the space, serenity, privacy, and unparalleled position of the house, which hangs on a cliff overlooking a bay with Mustique in the distance (those pictures of the infinity pool are real - it's that gorgeous). The house is luxuriously but comfortably furnished - beds as comfortable as ours at home (which we never find on vacation) and as fully equipped as your own home would be (which makes sense, because this is the owners' vacation home when they aren't renting it). The house was beyond spacious enough for two couples, and it can also accommodate kids and another adult couple - but we loved it with the four of us. It is very well kept - two onsite caretakers (one of whom supervised the crew that built the house a decade ago) rotate days making sure everything is sparkling clean and in good working order.
The kitchen has all the equipment you could want or need - including an espresso machine if you can't leave that habit on the mainland (we couldn't! brought our own coffee with us). We had expected to cook a lot, but one of the magic parts of Sights N Sounds is that the housekeeper Joy is an excellent cook and you can hire her to make dinners for you (which often include enough food for leftovers for the next day's lunch). Joy's food was wonderful - emblematic and representative of the island - and she'll tailor it to "whatever you'd like", as much as possible (subject to what's available at the market and veggie stands in town that day). Two of our party are chefs and they loved every meal she prepared (as did the rest of us - but our chefs always set a high food bar). We went out for exactly zero dinners during our 11 night stay; we did go out to lunch a couple of times but the highlight of those lunches was the beach bar position and the rum punch - nothing close to Joy's food.
Bequia itself was a lovely surprise - really out of time and nothing like any of the other islands we've visited. The people are incredibly friendly and seem truly happy to live there. The Belmont Walk beach walk was perfect, we had a great Tobago Keys excursion day, and pretty much just unplugged (except for watching the World Series, which was doable on the house's smart tv) and enjoyed each other's company. We will definitely return and so appreciate the privilege of being able to stay here.
My husband and I stayed at Flamingo Villa for our honeymoon and we couldn't have been happier. We did not want to leave! Waking up every morning to unreal views of the bay and the boats docked was magical and the house itself is the perfect tropical getaway, making you feel like you are the only ones on the island! Being steps away from Princess Margaret Beach (the best on the island) was excellent. We spent most of our days there and it was easy to pop back up to the house for whatever we needed. The pool and amenities at the house itself were great as well - fully stocked kitchen, bbq, loungers, A/C in bedrooms. And Carmina, the property's housekeeper was super sweet and helpful. It was perfect! Thanks to Nina and the Property Management for a wonderful stay.
