A Shade of Blues House


Princess Margaret, Bequia, St Vincent and the Grenadines


 

Fantastic location

This wonderful villa arguably has one of the best locations on Bequia - it is situated directly above the golden sand of Princess Margaret Beach. 
The main house, situated on the lower level of the property can be rented independently, or together with  A Shade of Blues Apartment above, meaning that this villa offers great options for families or groups of friends. 


Lovely pool & lovely beach location


This excellent Bequia vacation base overlooks Bequia's best beach Princess Margaret, just a stones throw from the warm turquoise waters, where you can take a dip or explore some fantastic snorkeling spots. 

At the villa the pool is in a central location so a relaxing dip is easy from the rooms and it is the heart of the villa.

Jack's Beach Bar located just below the villa is great for a refreshing drink, sundowner or a quick speedboat trip into Admiralty Bay or the popular nearby Lower Bay Beach from the wooden dinghy dock.

The walk back up to the villa from the beach is short but steep and is well worth the view!
 

A Lovely Bequia villa rental


This recently built villa (3 years old) - is finished to a high standard with warm colours for a calm relaxing atmosphere. A good sized infinity edged pool, large deck area and private balconies off each bedroom means there is plenty of space to enjoy the fantastic view out over the beach.
This villa has it all for a superb Caribbean beach location with a nice traditional Caribbean styled property.

Kitchen and dining areas


There is an open plan, well equipped kitchen with dishwasher and magical views of the bay. It opens onto the balcony for dining and relaxing - great to enjoy your sundowners and sunset suppers.
There is also a small kitchenette area just off the pool deck.

The balcony opens into the airy living room with TV, iPod dock and relaxed seating. All living areas are cooled by ceiling fans.

2 double bedrooms

A Shade of Blues main house has two equally sized bedrooms with en suite bathrooms.  The Kingsize master bedroom has AC, its own private bathroom, consisting of a luxurious open-air shower and separate wc,  and its own balcony with lovely, expansive views of the beach and Admiralty Bay.  The second bedroom has a queen size bed and fans.  A lovely space in which to relax and enjoy the beautiful sunsets.

Extra features


Just off the pool area is the 'Dancing Deck' or large sun deck with a pergola for shade which also overlooks the beach. Beach towels can be provided if required.

Jacks Bar Opening


From Jack's, you can enjoy cool refreshing drinks at the beach bar in the shade - with beautiful washrooms and dining this is a new feature of Princess Margaret Beach and one that has many advantages to guests renting the nearby villas.

Contact the Team at Grenadine Island Villas for assistance with planning your groups accommodation.



Please Note:

When guests have rental vehicle please park at the private car park below the drive. The drive is tricky & the owners prefer only their preferred taxi driver, Julian, to negotiate the drive.

Plans
"My husband and I were lucky enough to spend a week in Bequia at a house called A Shade of Blues. It was beautiful, we stayed in the upper apartment and it had everything we could possibly want. The bedroom was large with a king sized bed with blue netting on a frame so it was easy to use and didn't have to be tucked in, as you can tell my bed is very important to me.
I'd like to say that, one of my favorite parts was the shower that was open to the sky but there were so many favorite parts. Sitting on the deck and looking at all of the boats in the harbor or looking down at the whale swimming pool. The kitchen had everything that we needed and was charming.
Of course this was just the two bedroom apartment, the rest of the house is amazing, with large decks and everything you could possibly want for a dream vacation. And if you want a little more, well you can just walk down the stairs to a pristine beach and have a dinner at Jacks, bar and restaurant."

been meaning to send you this since we got back!  We had a fantastic time in Bequia, one of the great holidays.  We did very little, there was very little to do, but we all - even the boys - relaxed andjust went swimmng and snorkelling.  Were supposed to go diving but Hurricane Isaac intervened.  Only bad weather for three days out of the fourteen, so that was v good going, we thought.  The villa was v good, though not for young families because two of the three bedrooms were in a separate building from the main house.
 
The villla was right above the beach, the best beach on the island, and we often had it to ourselves.  When it got busy, there were perhaps ten other people on the beach.  Sea was warm and heavenly...Many thanks for your recommendation
 
"Family EM London September 2012"


Stunning apartment. I was there for the first two weeks in sept 2012. Without exaggeration....this was the best vacation ever. Julian and cass were wondercully helpful, without being intrusive. Location was private, blissfully peaceful, yet close to everything. The beach, a mere two mins away. Friendly, helpful locals. Watching the yachts  come and go from princess margaret beach in the comfort of your private balcony...Set on the best beach in bequia. Truly paradsie. I'll be back.

Guestbook, Michelle, September 2012


"Bequia's answer to pure comfort"
My fiancee and I spent a week here and we were so totally comfortable and relaxed we were close to totally changing plans and spending the rest of our vacation at a Shade of Blues instead of moving south to the other Grenadine islands! The property overlooks the undoubdedly the best beach on the island, "Princess Magaret Beach", which is just a couple steps away. The rooms are comfortable, covering all your needs! The design and feel really embraces the natural relaxing feel of the enviroment outside and brings it inside in wafts. The staff of Julian and Cas are not too far away when you need them but always far enough to maintain that level of space and privacy. There's nothing better than having a coffee on the verandah deck overlooking the beach, listening to the birds in the morning and soaking in the pool having a beer watching the sun set in the evening. I will always have lasting memories. You won't be disappointed.

"amazing"

We absolutely loved our stay at Shades of Blues. The view over beautiful princess margarets bay was amazing. The house was finished to a very high spec with contemporary design. All very well thought out. Lovely pool, terrace and lighting. Beds very comfortable and we appreciated the "square topped" mosquito nets, stopping the net draping onto the bed. Jacks bar is a fantastic local. All in all couldnt be better.
Many Thanks

"Heavenly Peace"

Our 3 week stay here was ostensibly to celebrate our Silver Wedding. We followed the suggestions of other visitors to Bequia and didn't hire a car, as we would usually, but used the services of Julian, the husband of the property's housekeeper Cas. Cas & Julian were absolutely fantastic and even if we weren't going anywhere, we saw them both every day. One important thing that is missed off the info, are the number of steps, from the "lane" to the apartment. I had just had surgery to my foot and had only been off crutches for 3 days before we came away. There are 78 steps from the apartment to the lane and a further 78 to the beach, if you go down via Jack's Bar. There are no steps if you go along the lane a little and through the trees to the beach. A good way to keep fit and there are convenient placse to stop on the way up!!! A bit of a hike with a case of wine or crate of beer, though we did manage!! Ask Julian about getting the beer from the beer factory and getting wine from the Welshman, Richard. The Friendship Rose trips are great, we did one to Tobago Cays and one to Mustique. We also took the Fast Ferry - Jaden Sun- to Union Island, calling at Canouan & Mayreau on the way. The outside showers are simply wonderful. The terrace is a great place to watch the bay from and each morning and evening we counted the vessels in and out. Wi-fi works best on the terrace. Princess Margaret's Beach really is the best one on the island. We were just at the start of the season, so some places weren't up and running. Fernando's Hideaway was great, but booking is a must. Can't believe it's taken me this long to write the review! Would certainly go back again. Bequia is no good if you want "everything on a plate". It is a small island, so the produce you can buy is dictated by what is shipped in!!
