“Elegant contemporary comfort in an authentic quiet Caribbean set” A Shade of Blues
"A Shade of Blues” is poetry in the form of a beautiful villa built into the side of a hill overlooking a Caribbean Bay on the west side of Bequia. Its well thought out contemporary design makes it elegant and comfortable - fitted out with all you could desire. There was even a beautiful handmade quilt on our bed. Open, airy decks offer spectacular views of colorful local fishing boats, square-rigged sailing vessels, and gleaming yachts making way in the waters of admiralty Bay. Surprising architectural and design details abound, such as the cantilevered outdoor showers, native rock staircase, lights embedded in the dancing deck, and the infinity pool. Didi and I stayed at a Shade of Blues in 2010 & 11 and our memories are filled with vivid images of palm fringed beaches, scenic mountains, and friendly locals. Our days began with French-press coffee and breakfast on the balcony listening to the birds and watching the bay. Getting around was easy. Princess Margaret Beach and Jack's Bar are a short walk down the hill. Getting to the shops and restaurants along Belmont Walk in Port Elizabeth was easy using Julian's Taxi or a water taxi. We got to meet some of the locals when we used the dollar taxi. One of our favorite walks was along a path carved in the rock that took us over to Lower Bay, a quiet palm lined beach. After a day of snorkeling , sailing, diving or sightseeing, we enjoyed relaxing in the infinity pool while taking in the sunset. This is the place you want to stay.
