With stunning views over the Caribbean, Cassava is set within its own grounds less than two hundred paces up from Lower Bay, a short meander down to one of The Grenadine's finest swimming beaches. The expansive ocean-facing coral stone terrace, which spans the full width of the house is the main living area, the perfect place to relax with a cool drink and watch the sun set. To the left a carved wooden entrance leads into the dining room and to the right, beyond a deep, cushioned seating area, is the master bedroom with its own private terrace, large dressing room and bathroom.

(If required, a smaller house close by can accommodate a further 6 people upon request.) Enjoy a cool drink or lunch at De Reef and the oceanside bar and mid-week open air movie at Keegans, all on the beach. Join in the steel pan jump up at The Frangipani on the water front. There are a number of good restaurants and bars on the island. Off season Gert keeps Papa's bar and restaurant open in Port Elizabeth, always welcoming. Bequia is the perfect island to relax and unwind, swimming, reading, fishing, snorkelling or diving, or hike to the top of Mount Peggy side-stepping purple-orange land crabs, and from the lava rock sculpted summit look down over the sweep of islands. Explore the beaches, calm Princess Margaret or the beautiful but wilder Atlantic side of the island, and the turtle sanctuary. Visit the pristine islands of the Tobago Cays, Mayreau on the way. Explore St Vincent where Pirates of the Caribbean was filmed at Wallilabou Bay, hike to the Dark View Falls or the Soufriere volcano. Or just take a water taxi around Bequia and see the dwellings at Moonhole from the sea, an extraordinary and magical collection of houses carved and built into the cliffs at the southern tip of the island. Stroll through the shops and vegetable stalls of Port Elizabeth and catch its old world charm. The people of Bequia are warm and welcoming and you will soon feel at home and may well yearn to return to this unique island with its Caribbean charm.More

I don't normally write reviews but feel Cassava and its owner deserve one. We spent 10 days at Cassava in early March - we know Bequia and love it, and decided we wanted to stay in a house we had heard so much about and...More

About the neighborhood
There is a tennis court at the Gingerbread Hotel where after a game Maranne's Ice Cream Parlour on the sea front has to be visited for a cool down. Snorkel along the rocks, visit the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary in Park Bay, the Whaling Museum, the Hamilton Fort, St Vincent Carnival during the first week of July. Have lunch at Sugar Reef on the Atlantic side or take a water taxi across to Isle de Quatre for a barbecue on a deserted island.
Getting around
It is easy just to call a taxi - they are not expensive and we have several numbers and all the drivers on Bequia are friendly and swift to come. There is a dollar van from the top of Lower Bay road. And there is the option of hiring a jeep for your stay or just for a few days - around USD 50 a day. A beautiful walkway has been built following the water's edge, allowing you to walk from the Lower Bay headland over onto Princess Margaret Beach, past Jack's Bar and around the cliff edge along the ocean side which arrives at the Belmont walkway along the harbour front into Port Elizabeth, the main harbour town.
