“Late October visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Charming place near town and overlooking Admiralty Bay.
It is secluded and has a pool. We stayed in the air conditioned unit which was great because it can be humid at night. The town is an easy 10 minute walk but bring a flashlight if you go into town for dinner.
Be sure to tour the island.
In town is the dive shop: Dive Bequia that we used.
They are a good dive shop to use and the diving was good.

Room Tip: Book early

This is the best place you can stay if you are in Bequia. It is in the perfect location with access to 3 of the best beaches in the area (Princess Margaret, Lower Bay and the main harbor area.) It is a 10 minute walk away from the main boardwalk where all the bars and restaurants are located. The owners can also arrange to have you be picked up or dropped off where ever you need to go and are extremely knowledgeable about activities to do on the island. Very beautifully designed and comfortable with an amazing view of the harbor.

BOTTOM LINE: Highly Recommended.

Seashells could not have been better for a week relaxing after a sailing training week in the Grenadines. A beautiful wooden house with the owners amazing apartment on the top floor, three apartments with balconies on the second floor, and two other apartments on the ground floor. We had room one, which consisted of well a equipped kitchen, bathroom with a huge walk in shower, down a couple of wooden steps into the bedroom with a king sized bed draped with an essential mosquito net, opening onto a good sized balcony overlooking Port Elizabeth, and the many yachts moored there every day. Wooden floors, and slatted windows opening onto jungle, give the room the feel of a very luxurious treehouse, and of peace and isolation. The view from the balcony is gorgeous. Michael and Arlene were fantastic hosts, and were very helpful with all our enquiries and needs.
Had it not been for the temptation of the two glorious beaches within easy walking distance, we might have stayed there for the whole week, only venturing out to walk to the town to eat in the evenings, or to dip in the pool when it got too hot!
This is truly one of the most unique and wonderful places we have ever stayed, in our many years of worldwide travel, and a very special find, and a very affordable price. If we ever return to Bequia we would definitely want to stay here again.
The only downside were the mosquitoes, so insect repellant is a must. At night as long as we burned mosquito coils, and ensured the netting was tucked in all around the bed, they were not a problem, but sitting on the balcony in the evening we sustained numerous attacks! But this is true of all of the Grenadines, whenever you are outside, so spray! This would not however stop us returning to this wonderful place.
Thank you Micheal and Arlene

Seashells is a really beautiful place – the apartment we stayed in was beautifully decorated with amazing views over Admiralty Bay. Additionally it has all the facilities you could wish for if you want to cook your own meals and was impeccably clean.

Another big plus I cannot highlight enough is that the apartment is very well placed for going to the Belmont Walkway (for restaurants and bars), and the harbor for food shopping and in easy walking distance to both Lower Bay Beach and Princess Margaret Beach.

Michael and Arlene are very helpful with anything you need and we could not have wished for more. It's definitely on our list for a return visit hopefully soon.

Seashells is a gorgeous place to stay if you visit Bequia. We stayed for a week in the downstairs apartment which was really spacious and comfy, and we pretty much had the pool to ourselves the whole time. Was lovely to sit out in the morning for breakfast and then for a late afternoon swim and rum punch after exploring the island. A perfect spot to end our backpacking holiday around the Caribbean. Michael, if you still fancy a house swap holiday for Donald's house in the Outer Hebrides, the offer is still open ...!
