Having the right real estate agent means having an agent who is committed to help you buy or sell your
home and who has the highest level of expertise in the local market.
Bequia is a very special island. Located approximately nine miles from the southern tip of St.Vincent. It
is just about ten miles by one mile in size (the largest of the Grenadines islands) but it has remarkable charm and an astounding
amount of attractions to offer. Its pint-sized town, Port Elizabeth, has one of the most appealing and most atmospheric waterfronts of
the Caribbean. During high winter season hundreds of yachts anchor in the bay and the sailors from these yachts help
in maintaining the liveliness of the bars and the restaurants that stretch along the shoreline walkway. The high holiday
season in Bequia runs from December to May but the island has an almost supernatural charm that makes it lovely to visit at
any time of the year.
Bequia has a unique, magical
charm which is hard to find anywhere else in the Caribbean. With fewer than six thousand inhabitants, it feels like home from
the moment you arrive; friendliness is the watchword, and the place is relaxed and easy-going. Don't be surprised if you
are greeted with a warm hello as you walk along the street - a centuries-old dependence on inter-island shipping and trading
has meant that Bequians have been eagerly welcoming visitors to their shores for generations.
The island's enduring seafaring heritage is one of its most striking features. Virtually every
Bequia family has some connection to the sea either past or present, and today's fishermen, sailors and boat-builders
are quietly proud to share their marine traditions with newcomers to the island.
Bequia fullfils many dreams of the perfect small Caribbean island: beautiful white sand beaches where
more than ten people may constitute a crowd, lush green hillside, attractive little villages, intimate, well run hotels and
guest houses, hardly any traffic, places to get together and places in which to find that perfect solitude. Variety and choice
on so small an island may come as a surprise - but they are there where ever you look.
Choose a holiday of total beach relaxation or one of exhilarating sailing and diving in some of
the most beautiful waters in the world. Get to know the island on foot, or hire a car from Bequia Land and Home and discover
so much more than just the golden beaches; take day or overnight trips to neighbouring isles or simply fill up another perfect
day doing nothing!
Your choice of holiday home could be a luxury
hilltop villa, air-conditioned self-catering apartment or first class small hotel; a friendly beachfront guesthouse or
a privately chartered yacht swaying quietly at anchor off a deserted beach.
A choice of nightlife too awaits you - gourmet international cuisine, or delicious local cooking;
elegant cocktails or sundowners in a local bar; a lively jump up to steel band music or a wonderfully romantic candlelit dinner
far from it all.
And then of course there are the warm tropical nights, with
an orchestra of singing cicadas and gently murmuring surf, and the brilliance of the star-studded sky which tells you, if
you didn't already know, that this is where you have always wanted to be.
