We travelled for 3 weeks in the Caribbean, and stayed on St.Lucia, Canouan and finally Bequia.
In Bequia we stayed in the Sweet Retreat for 6 days with owners Robert and Shelby.
Next to the very nice location overlooking Admiralty Bay from the Lower Bay area, in the quiet far corner of the leeward side of the island, they offered us a very relaxing and personal stay.
Robert was our encyclopedia on what went on on the island, and who to contact for what (e.g. Ramblers hiking with Donahan for a great 5 hour hike on the southern part of the island, passing the blow hole natural geiser and the summit of mount Paget). Shelby was a wonderful cook using only organic ingredients resulting in for example the most fabulous brownie/espresso ice cream dessert we enjoyed so far.
If you are looking for a nice, small scale accommodation with a very personal touch, we would highly recommend The Sweet Retreat!
