“Skip the hotels, you must stay here! Amazing house with wonderful staff”
Reviewed June 5, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My husband and I rented this house with two other couples with the intent of sailing the Grenadines for part of our time. When we arrived at the house, we were so awestruck at the beauty and view, we started to seriously discuss cutting short some of our sailing time so we could enjoy the house even more!

Each bedroom is beautifully done--with comfort and attention to detail that is second to none. The Ginger Cottage is separate from the house and equally wonderful.

Anne the owner arranged all our transport in Saint Vincent and Bequia--and Jal her assistant was friendly, professional, and always available to help in a pinch. We were so impressed with how wonderful everything was!

I can't recommend this house highly enough for a stay in Bequia--from the view, to the management, to the comfort, to the attention to detail....everything was perfect. We didn't want to leave! Absolutely one of the best vacations we've ever been on---much because of our time spent at the Ravenala House. THANK YOU!!!

“What a great Vacation location”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

Let me start by saying I write this with some hesitation......knowing we may be letting others in on our newest Bequia secret, Ravenala. Great location....Villa.....Staff, (especially Jal !!) and a very nice welcome from the owner, Tim. Overlooking Admirality Bay is breathtaking, with all the constant movements of ferry's, sailboats and swimmers, and the views of the beaches......never a dull moment just watching the daily goings on. Tim was a great welcoming committee, from grabbing us up from the airport, then a quick a tour of the villa making some good conversation, ending with Tim baking us a homemade pizza, with dessert. It was a great way to begin to decompress after a long day of travel. For the next 2 weeks we were treated like old friends by Jal, (Tims assistant) who was attentive to all of our questions or needs. Being close, but still seemingly far away from Lower Bay was a real extra for us. Being able to walk down to visit Dawns for breakfast, Keegans, La Plage, De Reef and Mango Bar for lunch, supper or just drinks worked really great for us. The villa worked perfectly whether you wanted sun or shade, with large spaces to spread out into. Even the pool was designed to be interesting, day or night. From the deck/patio we were able to watch the Full Moon rise over the top of Bequia. Within days Millie, the owners dog, adopted us, and helped us deal with missing our own dogs. A Great Location......A Great Vacation, and ALL the bases were covered,(even dog withdrawl ?) by Tim, Ann, Millie and ESPECIALLY, Jal, Thank You !!!!

“Perfect place to get away and relax, climate hot but lovely breeze”
Reviewed April 2, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Ravenala has the most beautiful views, the beaches were nearly deserted all over Bequia . We were looked after so well , meal cooked for us the first night , so we could chat about the island and settle in. New bread baked by the owners when needed, a car to get us to where we wanted to go. Infinity swimming pool, rooms very comfortable, with every appliance one could wish for. Anne and Tim were perfect hosts

Ravenala allowed our family to escape to an enchanting experience unlike any other time we have vacationed whether it be Bequia or anywhere else. The fantastic and well designed layout of the property was only one part of the equation-- what transcended the norm to make this magical was the hospitality and effort show by Tim and Anne. They were totally attentive to our wants, in short nothing was overlooked. I feel in my heart that we became friends with the Parsons and look forward to seeing them next year.

“Bequia and Ravenala House-" Sublime Beauty"”
Reviewed March 7, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

person found this review helpful

My husband ,our great friends and myself travelled from the Great White Frozen North of Ontario Canada to Bequia this February to escape the frigid temperatures of our Canadian winter, we choose the beautiful island of Bequia. We picked the right place and villa to come to. It was just was we needed to warm our souls. Ravenala house was our first choice because of the location on the hillside and sublime beauty of the home , cottage and gardens. It is even more beautiful in real life. As many have already said the views are stunning. One of the most beautiful stone pools. The gardens are well kept and lush, its very quiet with only the sounds of nature. The breeze is always perfect , especially in the evening. Tim and Ann are simply lovely! They made us feel welcome and at home. They are the perfect hosts attending to your every need. We had an enjoyable evening with them at Dawns for drinks and dinner. In fact we met so many beautiful friendly people on this trip. It was a treat for us to be able to walk down the lane way of the villa to one of the most beautiful beaches- Lower Bay, only a handful of people, with the most luscious sand and clear blue waters……ahhhhh…. I miss it already and its only been a week. Everything in the house was great, comfortable beds, linens, outdoor dining room to die for and lounge area with beautiful furniture. My husband and I stayed in the Ginger Cottage , we loved having coffee on our deck each morning as the sun was coming up. It was also the perfect spot for daily yoga. Great restaurants and beach bars are in the village, where you will meet such friendly welcoming people! There were so many special moments to our trip, here are a few, dinner at Fernandos Hideaway ( Lower Bay) sailing trip to the Tobago Cays/Saltwhistle Bay, Live Music friday night at Coco's, shopping at the local markets and trying the local rum punches, and of course relaxing, chilling and liming on Ravenala's porches/pool. This is a very special place , we feel so fortunate to have stayed here, one of a kind……..Sublime! Cheers from Debbie and Steve Prosser, Stayner, Ontarion, Canada ( we will return one day for sure!)

“Perfect hideaway”
Reviewed March 7, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We spent two wonderful weeks at Ravenala House, a perfect hideaway if you seek peace and quiet. Previous reviewers have really said it all - excellent hosts in Anne and Tim, there to help when needed, dispensing advice on every aspect of life in Bequia, ensuring your time is as enjoyable as possible. The house itself has a wonderful atmosphere and character and, of course, a view to die for. Time passed so quickly, always an indicator of a great holiday.
I miss Tim's freshly baked bread, watching the ever changing scene in the pay and totally 'chilling out'. We are already booked for next year - what better recommendation?

“Ravenala and Ginger Cottage”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 for a stay in February 2012

person found this review helpful

If you want to leave behind the gloomy,damp, wet weather of January and February take a trip to the Island of Bequia in the Caribbean; in particular to Ravenala House and Ginger Cottage. Together these properties easily sleep six in three large bedrooms with three large shower rooms (all bedrooms have wonderful views) ideal for holidaying with family or friends but still having a degree of privacy.
The kitchen is well equipped and the cooking facilities superb (serving the main house and Ginger Cottage). Dining (around a large table - there is a barbeque available if required) can be indoors or outdoors - we would recommend outdoors by the swimming pool to take full advantage of the stunning views over Admiralty Bay, which also includes Princess Margaret and Lower Bay both of which hav several excellent hostelries!!
Ravenalla is extremely well run by Tim and Anne Parsons, who are excellent hosts; they know the Island well and can always "send you in the right direction. They even bake bread and pick tropical friot from their own garden if required.
Here's to the next visit.
