Tropical Hideaway is a luxurious and very private property, consisting of five boutique accommodations surrounded by vibrant and mature tropical gardens. Set in over 4 acres of pristine natural forest all accommodations offer private facilities to the highest of standards including beautiful verandas with views that will literally take your breath away. Bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and luxuriously appointed and well laid out kitchens allow you the convenience of preparing your own meals. Palm Cottage is a lovely octagonal shaped studio, offering a luxurious and practical design ideal for Caribbean style living. It has a stunning solid timber vaulted roof which gives the studio an enticing, spacious and cool atmosphere. Measuring approximately 8m (26') wide and with a large covered veranda on the front, this accommodation is the perfect choice for two people wanting the luxury, privacy and space that your own cottage provides. A queen size bed complete with luxurious mattress is positioned centrally in the room and ample seating, cupboard and storage space is close at hand. A spacious en-suite toilet and shower room leads from the living area and a complimentary range of organic bathroom toiletries are provided, together with high quality bath linen and pool towels. Two cane and rattan armchairs provide a very comfortable seating area and the panoramic views looking through 24' of glass fronted patio doors are absolutely breathtaking. The large and private veranda has a bistro dining table and chairs allowing you to dine Al fresco style and enjoy the ambience of the outside environment. The well laid out kitchen has a sink unit, 2 burner gas hob, fridge, combination microwave oven and grille, toaster, kettle, cafetiere, expresso maker, blender and a comprehensive range of high quality cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery. An ice bucket is supplied and complimentary ice is available from the Pool Bar or the housekeeping staff. Palm Cottage is a very short walk away from the Infinity Pool and is on the same level as the Gazebo and the pool patio area. The views from the veranda are spectacular. The cottage is very private, offers easy access and is positioned just a few steps down from our car parking area. It should be noted that Palm Cottage is very popular with our guests and is the 5th most awarded accommodation in Bequia. Bearing in mind there are a few hundred vacation rentals on Bequia and that the 4 highest awarded properties are all part of Tropical Hideaway being 5th is a tremendous achievement. Tropical Hideaway has an 18m (58') wide panoramic Infinity pool and is often quoted as being one of the top ten pools in the Caribbean. The Infinity pool is a stunning feature of the property and with the environmentally friendly solar heating, the pool can be enjoyed at all times of the year. Typically our daytime pool temperatures are around 33 deg C in summer and 29 deg C in Winter. That’s an amazing 94 deg F falling to a very inviting 84 deg F in winter. The extra 3 degrees C created by our solar heating can make an enormous difference to your enjoyment of the pool. There is a swim up sunken pool bar, complete with fridge, ice-maker and sink, a preparation and serving area and a generous supply of acrylic beverage glasses. Adjoining the pool is a Gazebo complete with a large daybed and the views from here are just incredible. A perfect place to relax and read a book or simply enjoy the spectacular scenery. A cooling Caribbean breeze is usually present and the Gazebo and large parasols provide areas of shade for the hottest part of the day. Tropical Hideaway has a large barbecue area and our licensed on-site shop allows guests to purchase an excellent selection of fish and meats just perfect for the barbecue. We also offer a wide range of quality wines, beers and spirits and for your convenience all these and much more are now available on site and all at local supermarket prices. We have no biting sand flies (no see ums) at Tropical Hideaway and are mosquito free most of the year, except for a few around evening time. All indoor living areas and bedrooms are fully screened allowing you the convenience of a mosquito free environment with the ambiance of outdoor living and stunning views of the Caribbean Sea. You can sleep soundly at night safe in the knowledge that there are no biting insects or mosquito's in your room. We take very seriously our guests health and well being and having a screened and mosquito free environment should be an important factor when choosing your holiday accommodation. Tropical Hideaway has without doubt some of the finest rooms on Bequia, and coupled with the spectacular panoramic ocean views and the beautiful evening sunsets, you soon realize you are enjoying, what many say, are the finest views on Bequia, from the finest accommodation on Bequia.

About the neighbourhood
Tropical Hideaway is located in an elevated hillside position high above the famous Princess Margaret Beach and with an incredible panoramic vista overlooking the Caribbean Sea, Admiralty Bay and the surrounding forested hillsides, the views are absolutely stunning and will not disappoint.
If you enjoy walking, it's a nice downhill walk to three of the best beaches on the island. Princess Margaret Beach is the nicest, pristine and uncrowded and a short 20 - 25 minute walk down the road. A few parts of the road are steep. Most people walk down to town, the restaurants or the beach and catch a taxi back. Taxis are cheap and plentiful. Some guests walk both ways and some guests hire a car for a few days to explore the Island. Princess Margaret Beach is ideal for children and adults alike. It is very safe with turquoise blue, warm, calm waters. The beach is stunning with lovely white powdery sand. There is a very nice restaurant on the beach and there are numerous other restaurants and bars on the Island. Snorkelling is good on both points at either end of the beach.
Lower Bay is the furthest village to the West off Admiralty Bay and is different again. It is, dare I say it, more laid back than Port Elizabeth. Again you have the long, beautiful, white sandy beach together with several beach bars De Reef, Keegan’s, La Plage and Dawn’s to name but a few and all offering tasty food and giving undisturbed views of the sunset and (if you are lucky) a green flash. Sunday is the busy day here when the island comes out to ‘chill’.
The Bequia board-walk is now complete allowing you to walk from the beach at Lower Bay over a small headland onto the stunning Princess Margaret Beach. You can then walk over Princess Margaret Beach to the next headland which now has a spectacular board-walk suspended from the rock face. This connects to the Belmont walkway, passing several bars, restaurants, the two local dive shops, various small shops and cafes and eventually leads into town.
Bequia may be small and laid back, but for the adventurous there is so much to see and do. Any taxi will take you on a tour of the island visiting such places as the turtle sanctuary, pottery and whaling museum. You can hire a car, scooter or bike to explore the many beaches yourself. The fast ferry allows you to visit the other Grenadine islands and the mainland of St Vincent. There are numerous day charter yachts for you to explore the smaller, closer islands and there is the famous Friendship Rose, the old mail boat, which takes you on day trips to Mustique and Tobago Cays.
Wherever you go on Bequia, you will be given the warmest of welcomes. Everyone is happy to help you have the best holiday ever. They do not go out to hassle you for business, as on other islands. They know you are here to relax and they give you the space to do that. This is why so many visitors return year after year, after year, so be warned, if this is your first time to Bequia, it will probably not be your last.
