After rereading the past reviews, I can honestly agree about the hosts, location, and overall size and setup of the apartment. However, I feel the hosts can make some minor adjustments that would greatly enhance the experience. For instance, if they added screens to the windows and terrace doors, it would minimize the overwhelming numbers. Also, they could install updated mosquito nets around the bed that would actually surround the bed (squared off netting). We found it necessary to escape the apartment just to get reprieve from these avid biters. It has truly colored our island experience; we are bummed.
My daughter and I vacationed at the Village Apartments, our stay was fantastic and I cannot say enough about the host and hostess and the people that work at the Village Apartments they truly made us feel like family and answered any of our questions that we had. The mosquitoes can be troublesome however the close proximity to everything and the location made up for the mosquitos, just come prepared with repellant. Beautiful island& beautiful people.
We arrived late afternoon out of season with no booking for accomodation. We were planning on staying at a hotel that wa had seen on booking.com, but it was closed for the day due to no guests. We went to another place, but travelling with a baby this place was not equipt. Instead they called George at the Village Apartments, and that was lucky for us. Great place! George and Val are extremely welcoming. I have rarely felt that much hospitality at a holiday accomodation place. Apartments are small, but well equippet with a fully functioning kitchen. Only thing that annoyed us during our stay was mosquitos. But there was a net for the bed, and we also got some repellent from George and Val. I give a warm recommendation to the Village Apartments.
We stayed for two weeks in apartment 7 which was a full 65 steps climb, not easy in the heat and humidity. Apartment was basic but clean with beautiful views over the bay. George and Val were attentive hosts making our stay memorable.
The Village Apartments offers the best value in Bequia. The owners, George and Val take pride in the upkeep and condition of their facilities and are always available to help with whatever needs you may have. Stayed in a Studio and it was very well equipped and comfortable with a beautiful view of the all the yachts anchored in the bay. It is very convenient to the Boardwalk which gives you access to the great beaches, restaurants and the town. Just be aware that The Village Apartments are built on the side of a hill. This is why the views are spectacular but there are a lot of stairs to climb. Highly recommended if you want a home away from home and are not looking for a full service resort.
