Tropical Hideaway Pool House is a beautiful and very unique property offering a combination of luxury, privacy, space and affordability that is hard to come by these days. The accommodation is very cleverly designed and utilises the massive pool patio and the steps leading up to the main villa as it's roof. It measures over 20m (65') long and has a 2nd open plan mezzanine bedroom with a lovely vaulted ceiling. The Pool House has large double patio doors with covered veranda's and lovely sea views at both ends of the property.

The Northern aspect has lovely views looking over Admiralty Bay, the natural forested hills and the tropical gardens. This is where the main bedroom is located. Another open plan bedroom utilises a large mezzanine area which is reached from the curved steps by the kitchen. This second bedroom allows the property to be used by a family or by friends who wish to share. Both bedrooms have quality ceiling fans and air conditioners and can be screened off from the rest of the house by curtains if additional privacy is required. The prevailing tropical breeze wonders through the house and out through the South facing patio doors which have a beautiful view overlooking the Caribbean Sea and the rugged coastline. Sunsets from here can be lovely.

The accommodation is reached from the Pool Bar steps and once entered you cannot fail to be impressed. A large, spacious, fully functioning kitchen, complete with a full size range cooker, large Belfast sink, American style fridge freezer with icemaker, washing machine and dining table use just a small area of the property. Two open plan bedrooms and a very large general relaxation and seating area utilise the rest.

A large en-suite shower room and toilet compliments the property and this has been finished to a very high standard using natural coral stone tiles. The walk through shower is huge and is finished in natural stone pebble and coral. A complimentary range of organic bathroom toiletries are provided, together with top quality luxury bath linen, bath robes and pool towels.

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 stunning 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, blender 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. Sun loungers, sunbathing mats, parasols and chairs provide ample relaxation areas around the pool. A cooling Caribbean breeze is usually present and the Gazebo and large parasols provide areas of shade for the hottest part of the day. Please note the large Infinity Pool together with the Gazebo, pool patio and barbecue area are shared by any guests in residence.

The latest High-Tech Samsung 40” internet TV gives access to our in-house entertainment system supplying high definition films, TV, music and Internet radio. Usb charging points are supplied and high speed Wi-Fi is available throughout.

All indoor living areas and bedrooms are fully screened allowing you the convenience of a mosquito free environment. 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. At Tropical Hideaway you can sleep soundly at night safe in the knowledge that there are no biting insects or mosquito's in your room.

Location description from owner

The St. Vincent and the Grenadines region

Beautiful Bequia (pronounced bek way) is an undiscovered paradise, the Caribbean of 20 years ago. Covering an area of only 7 square miles, Bequia lies in the warm tropical waters of the Caribbean Sea. It is just a short plane hop from the ever popular Barbados and next to the renowned Mustique, both favourite islands of the rich and famous. It is the largest of the Grenadine Islands known also as the ‘jewels of the Caribbean’ and is blessed with several pristine, white sandy beaches many of which are totally natural and undeveloped.

If you want resort hotels, nightclubs and beaches full of sunbeds, don't come to Bequia. If you want to discover the undiscovered, visit our beautiful Island, enjoy the uncrowded pristine white sandy beaches, swim and snorkel in our safe and warm Caribbean waters and experience the genuine friendliness of the local Bequian people.

Bequia is an all year round destination with daytime temperatures consistently averaging between 24C (75F) and 30C (86F) throughout the year. A "chilly" evening in the winter months (January to March) might see a low of around 22C (72F) and in the summer months the temperature will occasionally reach 32C (90F). Trade winds bring cooling breezes for most of the year and the famous Christmas Winds bring stronger breezes and livelier seas, perfect for the keen sailor.

The "dry" season from December to May coincides with the "high" season for visitors, with clear sunny skies, low humidity and minimal rainfall. The Island is totally reliant on rain for its water, so the arrival of the "rainy" season in May/June is always a blessing. The warmer, summer months of May to November are a welcome mixture of occasional showers, sunshine and light breezes, with the isolated heavy downpour. Showers are usually short and mainly come in the night.

Bequia is far south in the hurricane belt, and although tropical storms will occasionally approach in the peak months of August to October, most disturbances either pass to the north or dissipate before they reach the Grenadines Island chain. 

Please note the so called “rainy season” is not a particularly reliable statement any more as the seasons have become very mixed and variable. The weather forecast for our part of the Caribbean typically states, ‘Sunshine with a mix of cloud and occasional showers’. It does reflect the changing climate and weather patterns and seems to be accurate for most of the year. At least the forecaster can never get it wrong.

Having two dive shops and around 24 dive sites, Bequia is a divers paradise. Our diverse marine environment includes relaxing reefs, wall dives, drift dives and even a few wrecks. You can still dive and snorkel away from the crowds in crystal clear waters with reefs that are still pristine. Our abundant and diverse sea life ranges from 100’s of species of Tropical Fish, Octopus, Sea Turtles and Sea Horses to name but a few. Bequia has it all and will satisfy beginners trying out snorkelling, scuba divers who wish to take a Padi course and experienced divers wishing to go on an exhilarating dive. Looking for an adventure? Try Discover Scuba with one of our two dive shops and enjoy a shallow reef dive with one of their experienced instructors.

We now have available our brand new forty page 2016 guidebook about Tropical Hideaway and the Island of Bequia. It has detailed information about local services, the fun things to do, our local restaurants, day trips to nearby islands and a wealth of other information invaluable for anyone intending to visit our beautiful Island. To read our complimentary guidebook please visit our website, scroll down the Tropical Hideaway 'Welcome' page and click on the guide book.

Bequia truly is a unique Island. Large enough to be interesting and exciting, yet small enough to retain its local charm and uniqueness that only a small off the beaten track Caribbean Island can offer. It truly is an undiscovered paradise that some well known travel journalists are only just discovering and several well known newspapers and magazines have recently published articles and all describe Bequia as an undiscovered paradise, about to be discovered.

What more can I say ............. Come see for yourselves!

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.

“Tropical Hideaway - the pictures don't even get close.”

Reviewed 29 Apr 2014

The overall experience was amazing from the start to finish. We was collected from the airport and once we arrived at the Tropical Hideaway we met Martin and Julia who were so friendly and welcoming, they gave us a tour of the property and went above and beyond with their hospitality to welcome us, the second week we met martin and Julie's daughter Corrie who was also so friendly, kind and helpful. The pool house was a beautifully spacious 2 double bed apartment the 2nd bedroom is on the mezzanine level, the apartment has huge open plan kitchen, very large bathroom (great shower), also has two balconies facing opposite sides of the property with spectacular views. The Infinity pool is out of this world, Truly stunning day and night through the two weeks many hours/day were spent there. We enjoyed nights in ordered fresh local tuna straight from the fishermen and whacked on BBQ. Also Corrie arranged for us to hire the singing chef who came to the tropical hideaway to cook and entertain one evening which i would definately recommend to anyone visiting- it was a great night with very tasty food. The location of the property is perfect as your close enough to get down to town but also still secluded enough to have complete privacy and quietness. many days we took a stroll down for lunch, dinner, daytime drinks chilling on the sea front even some late night drinks at some of the rum shacks. I would definately like to visit again. Having to leave was truly one of the hardest thing I've done. I'd recommend it to everyone as it is suitable for all ages, couples and families. Many thanks again, such an amazing place Martin, Julie, Corrie and how could we forget (Missy the 3 Bengal cats)
