“The perfect villa in Bequia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013 for a stay in January 2013
1
person found this review helpful

I was looking for a villa near enough to the harbor in Bequia to be able to go out for drinks and dinners and parties, as well as a villa with a pool and plenty of outdoor space to relax. And this villa had all the things I was looking for. The pool and pool area were perfect for chilling out in the daytime and in the evening with amazing views.

I used the BBQ often and was pleased that there was TV in the villa with lots of channels to choose from and internet access to keep in touch with the real world (although I didn’t do this very often!) The villa was well kitted out with everything I needed to make some meals for myself, as well as all the bedrooms and the bathrooms having loads of bedding and towels for me to use.

It was an easy walk down to the beach and to the Harbor area, and the walk back up a small hill was a good little workout after a day of doing nothing in the sun!

I will definitely be coming back!

“One of the best views over this very special little island !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

The house works very well indeed . 5 of us stayed for 9 days ,we ate in or barbecued or went down to town which was a 7 minute drive away .

Our days normally consisted of Breakfast on the lawn preceded by a swim in the infinity pool then an , easy trip to Lower Bay for swimming or maybe Princess Margaret bay both with fab lunch options and then a Sundowner back at the house watching the activity in Port Elizabeth . In the evening it was easy to produce food from the well sorted kitchen or else the Barbecue with its own adjacent Beer Fridge !


As a group of friends we have rented a lot of houses in the Caribbean and we are all agreed the Octopus is one of the best !

“Perfect view, perfect villa and amazing stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

I stayed at the villa in Jan for a week just before the busy jazz festival on the gorgeous island of Bequia.

I could not have asked or more from a holiday villa, it was furnished to a high standard with a very modern feel which was not like the other villa which I had stayed in previously which was much more rustic and less well equipped. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you would need to cook a full meal even down to a cheese grater!! there was also a BBQ outside for grilling in the evening. The bedrooms are furnished really nicely and are a great size. The outside area is truly spectacular with the views of the sun going down in the evening that made every evening special. All the outdoor furnishing really made it easy to want to not move all day!!!

The drive down to one of the prettiest beaches on the island is about 5mins and was also a really pleasant walk.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone looking for a home from home in a Caribbean paradise :-)

“Amazing views, lovely modern villa, great pool and a fantastic island.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We stayed here for our honeymoon, and had a fantastic time. The views are incredible, the villa is stylish with all the accessories you could ever need.
The island itself is paradise, with some of the best beaches in the world.
This is not a touristy place, it's authentic Caribbean, the locals are very friendly, and want you to enjoy their island.
I would definetly recommend this villa and island if you want to relax, eat nice food and experience the caribbean lifestyle.
The owner of the villa Claire is also very helpful, we had great communication throughout, and she made sure we had a fabulous honeymoon :-)

“Pleasant stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012 for a stay in July 2012
1
person found this review helpful

We have just spent a week at Octopus Villa as part of a 5 week Caribbean island hop. We have only ever spent a day on Bequia in past having resided on the main island of St Vincent. We had a pleasant stay in the villa which boasts amazing views from the living area, terrace and pool.
Bequia is a nice island but is very quiet this time of year and many restaurants and bars are not at all stocked with it being low season and so the one week was enough for us before returning back to Barbados.
We had a day trip to Mustique which was a fabulous experience and it only took an hour to get there by boat. We would recommend visiting various other islands whilst residing on Bequia as you are so close to some other amazing locations.
Although we enjoyed our stay, we seemed to get many more mosquito bites here than anywhere else that we stayed and we found the bedrooms and bathroom facilities to be too cramp although, that is to to say however, that the facilities did not provide the necessities. The outdoor space was great and the position of the villa is perfect.
We had a few minor issues, but nothing to write home about so if you are a family or a couple wanting a pleasant Caribbean getaway, then I am sure you would be quite happy here.
Overall a nice enough break but we would probably try something, and somewhere else next time. That's not to say that we would not recommend it.
A big thank you to the owner Claire who made the booking process very easy.

Liked best: The view.
Liked least: Could probably be cleaned better and we were not a fan of the regular over powering waft of smoke coming from the house keeper next door.

“Million Dollar Views with a pool & Villa to match”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Just returned from 2 weeks staying in Octopus villa in Belmont looking out to the Bay.
The location was perfect only 5mins away from Princess Margret beach by car.
The views from the good sized infinity pool were amazing day or night.
The air con in the bedrooms garenteed a good nights sleep.
After 2 weeks I wanted to stay longer as the villa & island is paradise on earth.
Claire even supplied a mobile phone for local calls which came in handy for making reservations.
The open plan livingroom was a good size with a nice big flat screen TV with loads of channels even ESPN but be warned its the USA version of ESPN.
The kitchen had a large america style fridge freezer with the all important ice maker & supply of fresh filtered chilled water.
All sockets in the house are the 3 pin UK 240V type so no adaptors required for UK appliances. The house also has loads of socket adaptors for USA appliances.
We never used the outside movie screen as I didn't fancy being eaten alive by the local population of beasties.
There's a safe in one of the rooms that we used for passports etc.
The bedrooms could be a tad bigger but then again you only sleep in them ;-)
All the beds had a good firm mattress with a good supply of clean towels including beach towels.
Claire even supplied me with a mozzie bat to fend off the little mites.
If we return to Bequia we will stay in Octopus again as it ticks all the boxes.
The wifi connection was a bit hit or miss some days.
It was handy having the owner only a call away to answer any villa questions.
All in all a wee home away from home in the caribbean. Already missing the views:-(

“Comfortable tranquility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We stayed for a week at the Villa in April and had the most relaxing and enjoyable holiday. It offers a fantastic view over the bay, a lovely pool, is secluded, private and well appointed - the air conditioned bedrooms were very much appreciated!
It's a short walk to the town, to the restaurants on the Belmont Walkway and to several beautiful beaches.
Claire made herself available whenever we needed help and advice and nothing seemed too much trouble for her.
For a relaxing week in the sun, away from the crowds and with a feel that you're at 'home', and not in an anonymous hotel room, it was perfect!
