Bananapatch Bequia artist's house private beach
Located amid lush gardens on a cliff above a private beach with private access, the charming post and beam house is modest by villa standards. It's a real house, built by local boat builders the way they were built long ago and comfortably furnished with antique finds from around the West Indies. The artist's eye for the sea is everywhere from the carved whales hanging overhead to the tromp l'oeil floors. High ceilings and Mahogany shutters allow trade winds to cool the air. Kitchen is modern but not fussy or gourmet. Ideally two couples or a small family would be best. *art-studio has a queen size bed on the porch for star watching or sleeping alfresco and acts as third bedroom when needed. All bedrooms have ceiling fans and good reading light The gardener, St. Claire, his son Len, and Nettie the housekeeper live nearby, not on property. Schedules are flexible and they are a wealth of helpful information and island lore. They will also arrange grocery shopping, car rental etc. See location details for more information.

REEF HOUSE was completed in June, 2011 and is situated 150 feet over the sea and lovely, frequently deserted Crescent Beach on the Caribbean island of Bequia, St. Vincent & the Grenadines. The house is constructed of local stone and Greenheart hardwood in a Pavillion Style that reflects the older Caribbean tradition yet provides all the modern conveniences. The home works either as a TWO BEDROOM (just the upper level) option OR a THREE to FIVE BEDROOM option (see below) depending on your needs. WEEKLY RENT VARIES DEPENDING ON NUMBER OF GUESTS AND THE TIME OF YEAR. High Season: Dec - April; Low Season: May - Nov.
The upper level can be used as a TWO BEDROOM home as it is completely separate from the lower level downstairs THREE EXTRA BEDROOMS. Stairs to reach the lower level are on the outside north wall and are not seen from the upper level.
The spacious Octagon living room/kitchen with its vaulted wood beam ceiling and stone terrazzo floors is the center piece of this lovely home. The Octagon, as well as all the bedrooms, has hand-constructed nine-foot Greenheart Dutch doors, each framed by a cut stone arch, that open to magnificent views of either the verdant tropical valley behind the palm-lined Crescent Beach or dramatic views of the turquoise sea, off shore reef with its constantly breaking waves, or the two small islands in the distance. All the teak furniture has been imported from Bali and gives the house a relaxed, 'barefoot chic' ambiance.
All the five bedrooms have teak four poster beds covered with a mosquito net. Each of the five bathrooms contains a walk-in tiled shower, soapstone counter top and Balinese teak mirror. All bedrooms have a ceiling fan; no A/C is needed because the house has been designed to capture the constantly flowing tradewinds. There is also an extra TV ROOM which has a teak single sleigh-bed and its own bathroom.
For added enjoyment, there is a plunge POOL with an underwater bench designed for sitting and relaxing and taking in the sea and tropical views.
