Secluded Caribbean Luxury Villa, 3 bedrooms/ 3 baths, with Pool & Panoramic View

Ocean Breeze Villa is perched on Spring Hill on the Atlantic side of the island. The villa overlooks lush flower gardens and tropical fruit trees that gradually blend into the natural island flora. From the various terraces you see coconut palm groves and the two scenic bays of Spring and Industry. Beyond these, gorgeous panoramic views open toward the ocean and outlying islands.

In keeping with Caribbean style, the house has an open layout; with the French doors ajar in the living room and bedrooms, it lives up to its name as refreshing ocean breezes blow throughout. One of the highlights of the house is the expansive wraparound covered porch. In fact, you may find that you never want to leave the panoramic views and soothing breezes on the porch. The house features three bedrooms with private baths, a fully equipped kitchen and an open living and dining area.

Major villa attractions are the outdoor solar-powered Jacuzzi and the spectacular pool, with its large portico, a gazebo for shade lovers, a barbecue and a bar—an ideal setting for grownups and children of all ages. Why spend your vacation in a hotel when you can enjoy an affordable home away from home in complete luxury at the Ocean Breeze Villa?

Details of the house and gardens:

The upper story comprises the living room and kitchen, flanked on either side by two bedrooms. Bedrooms have French doors that open to the east towards the Ocean, infusing the rooms with morning light. An attractive architectural feature is the wraparound veranda’s post-and-beam structure. Precious Caribbean green heart, combined with a varnished wood ceiling, provide an old-world flair. Add to this the authentic Bequia stone facing of the walls, the frieze of Turkish tiles and the white lacquer of the French doors, and you get a sense of the eclectic, inviting style that is the calling card of Ocean Breeze House. Every detail receives meticulous care by the owners and the house managers, Jo and Allan, who live next door and keep things in order year-round.

Stepping out of the living room, there is a sitting area with comfortable teak chairs and coffee table. To the left, under one of the pyramid roofs, is a wrought-iron glass-topped table for your morning coffee. The area is partially glassed-in to keep the occasional rain at bay. At night, it’s an inviting spot for dining al fresco. An overhead candelabra, terracotta wall sconces and candles provide a cozy ambiance. Not to mention the moon and stars.

At the opposite end of the veranda, shielded by the twin pyramid roof, you’ll find deck chairs, a hammock and game or (if you must) work table. The veranda offers beauty, rest and shelter all day long.

Inside, you’ll find a comfortable seating area with rattan chair and sofa that converts to a pullout bed for an extra guest. There is a dining table of precious Guyanese walnut surrounded by teak chairs with local canvas cushions. A Tiffany-style lamp give a special appeal to the dining area. The brand-new kitchen, though small, has all necessary appliances, including a dishwasher, microwave, gas stove, and refridgerator. The Caribbean cherry cabinets were made by a local craftsman. The counter top is granite. Dishware includes a contemporary stone service for breakfast and more formal Bohemian porcelain for your own pleasure or for entertaining guests.

Works by local artists adorn the combined living-dining room, including a spectacular staue of a Pelikan, and paintings by Lucy Quashie (whose gallery is worth visiting), along with imported Turkish and Portuguese artwork.

On the middle level, you’ll find a veranda with Jacuzzi, a set of Adirondack chairs and another seating area. The door at the far end leads to the third air-conditioned bedroom with bath and kitchenette , an attractive option for additional members of your party, or a practical solution for an accompanying nanny. Another wrap-around balcony opens views to a different panorama and makes for spectacular star-gazing.

All three bedrooms feature queen-size beds and mosquito nets. The house features two washing machines and a dryer, as well as an overflow refrigerator for any additional food and beverages you may have.

On the lower level, stop for a moment to admire the unique circular staircase, the new Bequia sandstone veneer on the walls and of course the plentiful flowers. Walking down a flight of stairs, brings you to the oval swimming pool, a shady gazebo perfect for a light lunch, and chaise lounges for sunbathing (don’t forget your sunscreen!). A fridge dispenses cool beverages and a gas grill can be called upon for hamburgers or local fish. Walking down another flight, you’ll find a great spot for reading a book or meditating under the mango tree.

Security

Bequia’s reputation as a safe destination is well deserved. Ocean Breeze House is equipped with a security alarm system (seldom used). Additionally, two safes are available.

Sports Equipment

Various pool and beach toys are on-hand. A 14-foot Laser sailboat is available to certified sailors and requires written indemnification.

Environmentally Conscious

Ocean Breeze House aspires to be energy self-sufficient. We make extensive use of solar energy both in the house and to run the swimming pool, an air conditioner, and the Jacuzzi, as well as to provide hot water. The gardens use recycled water, collected roadside and distributed by an elaborate underground irrigation system. Guests are invited to contribute to this eco-awareness by conserving water and electricity.

Ocean Breeze House has a music system for your iPod or CDs and has Wi-Fi to meet your Internet and Skype needs.

Scuba diving is a must on Bequia. The Island maintains a protected UNDERSEA PARK featuring all level of skills ranging from shallow dives for beginners to 200 foot drops along 'the Wall' for seasoned divers, all of these super exciting. The PADI dive shops are great! Snorkeling on the Reefs is an exciting alternative to Scuba.

Bequia is also a sailing haven. We have a small LASER to explore Admiral's Bay, or you can hire on on a trip to the Grenadine Keys on the authentic Schooner FRIENDSHIP ROSE.
