This Caribbean masterpiece combines privacy with breathtaking views of nearly twenty Grenadine islands. It has been designated a favorite tropical home of Coastal Living magazine and featured in House Beautiful. Tranquility was built from natural local materials in harmony with the environment, its large open arches and gentle curves blending in with the gorgeous natural surroundings.
Powered by solar energy, the villa provides a low-impact, eco-friendly vacation experience including four en-suite bedrooms, spacious lounge, dining room, library/music room, kitchen, pool and large terra cotta tiled decks on all levels. Tranquility can comfortably accommodate four couples.
The top floor is dedicated exclusively to the master bedroom and huge deck. It is secluded from the main house, accessed via gated private stairway.
The third level has the spacious dining room, comfortable lounge, library/music room, and a large wrap-around deck complete with outdoor seating and a fully equipped kitchen, managed by your personal cook, of course.
The second level features the Sunflower and Papaya bedrooms and a deck for enjoying the stunning views of the Caribbean Sea and Grenadine islands.
The first level is exclusively for the Turquoise bedroom with its own private deck, also overlooking the sea.
The pool is easily accessed from all rooms, the surrounding patio comfortably furnished with lounge chairs and built in L-shaped settee. The ideal spot for that refreshing morning dip or afternoons lounging with cocktail in hand.
There’s no vacation experience quite like lying in a fluffy, four-poster kingsize bed while watching the spectacular sunrise over the Caribbean Sea. The room is tastefully appointed with all the amenities you’d expect from deluxe accommodations, including private breakfast nook and a hammock in the shade.
Couches, cushions, soft natural light, and scenic views - hook your iPod up to the Bose, look out the window at the ospreys and frigate birds, or even the occasional gliding manta ray or whale in the crystal waters below. You’ll be tempted to stay indoors and soak up the comfort.
With tropical foliage climbing the walls and the mellow twilight filtering in, the lines between inside and out become blurred at dinnertime. Set your magnificent Spanish tile table for eight persons for a most memorable home-cooked meal away from home.
Kitchen and Utility room
The kitchen is equipped with a large electric refrigerator, gas stove, pots and pans, cutlery, glasses, plates, coffee press, double sinks with solar water heater, and a gas barbecue. The utility room has the washing machine and the maid is happy to do your laundry at no additional cost.

This stone-walled area of the villa houses a wide variety of books, several musical instruments, and a seating area with chess set for your pleasure.
Sunflower and Papaya Bedrooms
These bedrooms each feature a queen size bed, solar-heated shower, and wash basins that look over the tropical garden to the sea. They share a large deck with a hammock where you can rest and listen to the sweet song of perching Bequia Black Birds.
This bedroom has a king size bed, window seat, private deck, and solar-heated shower with views of the Caribbean for miles on end.

To secure a reservation we require a 25% deposit (non-refundable). This can be paid through PayPal (which can also be used for credit card payment), or by check. The balance of payment is due sixty days (60) prior to arrival. We highly recommend travel insurance to cover the unlikely event that accident or illness prevents you from travelling.
Regarding your personal cook/housekeeper, we find that the best arrangement is to accompany her to town the day after arrival so you can acquire provisions that meet your tastes.
Alternatively, we can inform her in advance of your likes and dislikes and she can do the shopping, which will be charged to your account at cost and will be at the house for your arrival. She can often get better prices from the local seafood and produce markets.
On the night of your arrival, she will prepare and serve dinner (those provisions also being charged to you at cost). Your personal cook/housekeeper works seven days a week and will prepare and serve all meals. You can set her working hours, which can be changed at anytime to give you maximum privacy and service.
For your budgeting purposes, Bequia food costs are generally about 15% to 20% more than in the USA because many things are imported. One exception is seafood which is of course caught locally and daily. Nothing like fresh fish and lobster straight from the sea to your table!
