A Shade of Blues Apartment Princess Margaret, Bequia St Vincent and the Grenadines Fantastic locationThis privately located villa arguably has one of the best locations on Bequia - it is situated directly above the golden sand of Princess Margaret Beach. A Shade of Blues offers great options for families or groups of friends. The apartment has its own independent access, and can be rented together with A Shade of Blues House, which has an additional double bedroom, large living / dinning terrace areas, gym and full equipped kitchen. Lovely pool & lovely beach location This excellent Bequia vacation base overlooks Bequia's best beach, Princess Margaret Beach, and is just a stones throw from the warm turquoise waters, where you can take a dip or explore some fantastic snorkeling spots.

A Shade of Blues offers great options for families or groups of friends. The apartment has its own independent access, and can be rented together with A Shade of Blues House, which has an additional double bedroom, large living / dinning terrace areas, gym and full equipped kitchen. Lovely pool & lovely beach location This excellent Bequia vacation base overlooks Bequia's best beach, Princess Margaret Beach, and is just a stones throw from the warm turquoise waters, where you can take a dip or explore some fantastic snorkeling spots. Beach towels can be provided if required. There is a lovely sun shade available on the balcony. The villas pool is in a central location at the heart of the property so a relaxing dip is easy from all the rooms. With large deck area perfect for sunbathing and soaking up the magnificent views. Apartment guests are welcome to use the villa pool anytime between 9am & 9pm. Jack's Beach Bar located just below the villa is great for a refreshing drink, sundowner or a quick speedboat trip into Admiralty Bay or the popular nearby Lower Bay Beach from the wooden dinghy dock. The walk back up to the villa from the beach is short but steep and is well worth the view! A Lovely Bequia villa Rental Completed in 2010 this villa is finished to a high standard and a calm relaxing atmosphere. The infinity edge pool overlooking Princess Margaret offers a wonderful place to cool off. It is located on a lower level and is shared with occupants in the main house. The main driveway to the property is for the Villa guests use, for the apartment would guests please park at the car park below and walk up the steps, for luggage and heavy items special arrangements can be made for delivery. Please Note: When guests have rental vehicle please park at the private car park below the drive. The drive is tricky & the owners prefer only their preferred taxi driver, Julian, to negotiate the drive. If guests want to invite others to the villa & pool please do so whilst being sensitive to others who may be using the property. Please note that only rental paying guests may use the pool. Please inform the rental agent prior to inviting extra guests to the property during the evening, in particular. Kitchen and dining areas There is one fully functioning, open plan, well equipped eat-in kitchen, which opens up right onto a shared patio. Apartment guests can also make use of the built in BBQ facilities located just outside the apartment kitchen. Provisions can be pre-ordered, a service charge of 20USD plus cost of provisions to be paid upon arrival. 2 Double bedroomsThe apartment has two bedrooms - one queen bed and twin beds which have the option of king size when pushed together - each with a private bathroom, consisting of a beautiful outside shower open to the Caribbean sky and separate wc. Both rooms open out onto the west facing balcony, wonderful to enjoy the sunsets. Guests can enjoy a cooling breeze via the louvered french windows in the bedroom. Air Conditioning has been installed for evening use and there are also standing and ceiling fans in each of the bedrooms if you prefer. From here there are lovely ocean views over Admiralty Bay. The apartment is privately located at the top of the building, accessible via external steps up from the pool area. Additional accommodation availableA Shade of Blues Apartment can also be booked in conjunction with the Shade of Blues Studio option with complimentary breakfast and maid service, providing an additional double bedroom. Jacks Bar From Jack's, you can enjoy cool refreshing drinks at the beach bar in the shade - Jacks is great addition to Princess Margaret Beach and one that has many advantages to guests renting the nearby villas. During the high season (1st Dec - 30th April) Jacks is open for lunch and dinner most days with live music on Tuesday nights from around 9pm - 12 / 12.30 (reservations recommended). During the low season (1st May - 30th November) Jacks is usually closed in the evenings - we recommend reservations. No children under the age of 5 please at A Shade of Blues If guests prefer to eat al fresco on the beach we can easily arrange a private BBQ. Recommended for Wedding Groups A Shade of Blues works well for large groups visiting Bequia for a wedding or family or friends reunion, especially when linked with other villas that are very close by, including Gumbo Limbo, Piperie, Princess Hill, Turtle Point and Flamingo. Contact the Team at Grenadine Island Villas for assistance with planning your groups accommodation. Air Con Usage The apartment was designed for open air living with large windows for maximum airflow - the building is not efficient for air conditioning and runs at considerable cost herMore

Thoughtfully designed with delightful artistic touches. Superior beds and linen regularly changed during our fortnight's stay. Sunsets from the balcony over a bay full of constantly changing boats were a highlight. Be prepared to walk steep slopes to and from the beach.
