My husband and I were so excited to be invited by our dear friend for a getaway to Bequia Island. We had never visited that part of the world before. Well what an incredible place! The entire experience was just amazing! Our friendpicked us up from the Fairy and we drove up to The Old Fort where we were to spend the next week in paradise. The views are just absolutely incredible- the beautiful warm breezes , and the entire Fort just was like something out a movie. We enjoyed the quiet private estate so much - hiking- pool afternoons - romantic dinning on the patio of amazing local lobster tails- star gazing and the best sleeping with beautiful warm gentle air. The little details and historic charm of The Fort are just so special. Our host Quirin was so kind to take us around this beautiful Island and show us some of the local spots. I cannot say enough about this beautiful place- we are already planning our next visit. Thank You Beautiful Bequia See you again soon 🌴 Mindy & Peter

The views were amazing - the property rustic and very unique. The people of the town of Bequia were so accommodating. The owner is attentive and readily available. A trip back in time for sure. Getting taxi is the only way to see island for sure!

The Old Fort was a magical experience and one our family of 14 will never forget. We loved the house, the pool, the turtles, all of the stone and Bequia itself is an amazing island. Beautiful beaches, great culture and so many things to do. Thank you for an unforgettable trip!

We spent 8 months at The Sugar House, one of the beautiful properties at the Old Fort Estate. Everything about it was spectacular! The location is wonderful in a lovely neighborhood with stunning views of the hillsides and ocean. The house itself is breathtaking. It is built in the foundation of an historic sugar mill and it is a very unique living experience. It is extremely open to the outside and yet felt very private at the same time. The furnishings are lovely and the open living room, dining room, and kitchen area is comfortable yet elegant. The kitchen is very well stocked. The house comes with about a dozen turtles that live in the backyard and we really enjoyed having them there. The owner and caretaking staff are very attentive and helpful. The house and property are even more lovely than the pictures on the website. Bequia itself is amazing. The island has first rate beaches, restaurants, and activities like snorkeling, sailing, hiking, fishing, and island hopping. The people are extremely friendly and welcoming. It is a fabulous place for a vacation and we can’t wait to return to the Sugar House.

Had a fantastic week at the Old Fort. The Estate is beautiful and the views even better. Stayed in the tower room and it was my favourite part of the house. The island is small so you’re never far from anything. Counting the days until I can go back.

My family and I stayed here for a week in August, which included two boys (13 & 2.5 year olds) and the stay was Excellent! I was a bit nervous to stay here, being my first time in St. Vincent and Bequia and also being used to typical hotel stays. I know, how boring right? But there were many unknowns for me, especially with my toddler. However, when I say we had everything we needed, I mean it! The accommodations were excellent. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The house itself is a site to see! It is spacious and the open areas give a feeling of even more space and makes it so delightful. The privacy was amazing. Walking around the grounds and having amazing views in every angle definitely contributed to the beautiful experience. The option to have a bit of help with food and cooking is amazing. Although you don’t have to, I took full advantage! Sarah, the beautiful woman who shared her delicious cooking with us was such a delight to my family. Shane, the taxi driver that helped us move about the island was definitely a gem. His energy was so nice and he was very easy going. He was very helpful, always available and made the rides fun for us all! The house keeper was also very nice. Although we were there, she was able to do her work without us interrupting each other. All of them were major contributors to our amazing stay! And they will forever be remembered by my family and I! Overall, the trip was amazing and I would do it all over again. I cannot believe I initially had so many reservations about our stay. Now I simply cannot wait to stay here again. It offered such a sense of peace and privacy that my family is so grateful for. The four of us had so many take aways and for many different reasons and are so appreciative of being able to stay here. It’ll be hard to plan another trip because this one set the bar high! Thank you, Sugar House! Thank you, Bequia!

I had the most amazing stay at The Old Fort with my 2 girlfriends in Nov /Dec 2022. We watched lizards dart around the Crepe Ginger plants and hummingbirds drink from the flowers whilst we had breakfast. The bedrooms are beautiful at The Old Fort and we each enjoyed our much needed time out from our over busy lives back home. The Verandah of the main bedroom proved a perfect spot for both morning meditation and evening drinks. The house and grounds provided the perfect quiet space for our much anticipated holiday of lazy days and precious time reconnecting with each other around the pool with THE best view on the Island of beautiful Bequia overlooking the Grenadines. As an artist it gave me gave to sketch some of the tropical plants and flowers in the gardens. The locals are super friendly and we enjoyed our time at the Rum Bars, buying fresh papayas at the Harbour and swimming at Princess Margaret Beach. I would return in an instant! There were tears shed when we left as we had all treasured this beautiful space and island together. The Old Fort Estate has a real magical quality and an absolute WOW factor! The owner and the staff care about you having a great stay Its been a such privilege to stay here. An unforgettable holiday!

My family and I stayed at The Old Fort Estate for a holiday lasting two weeks. We enjoyed the fresh ocean breeze, breathtaking views of sky and water, lush green surroundings, and welcoming hospitality. The historic stone architecture, arched doorways, and colorful textiles created a truly unique charm. The estate had all of the comforts and amenities that we were looking for. We felt completely relaxed, as the estate was quiet and secluded, yet close to the beaches, culture and nightlife of Bequia. We recommend this is as a wonderful place for an extended stay.
