Bequia Villa Rental: Bequia Whispers Villa

This page provides information about Whispers Villa itself. For information on the island of Bequia please click here.

Introduction

Whispers Villa sits within ¾ acres of private grounds, perched on a hillside overlooking the Grenadine islands. The beach is less than 10 minutes’ walk away.

The villa was completed in 2008, and has two levels. The upper level boasts two air-conditioned en suite bedrooms, either end of an attractive open-plan living, dining and kitchen area. Both bedrooms, and the living area, open directly to the spacious wraparound verandah and pool deck, featuring a 25’ infinity pool and jacuzzi, both with expansive views.

On the lower  level is a third bedroom, also air-conditioned and en suite, complete with its own living area and small kitchen - making it ideal for staff or for members of the party requiring their own space. This suite has its own verandah, again with views over the Grenadines, and has stepped access to the upper pool deck.

Both levels are equipped to the highest standards.

Living Room / Lounge / Den (including TV and Internet)

Features comfortable rattan furniture with cream cushions and throws, coffee tables, flat screen TV, DVD and stereo with iPod / MP3 input.

Whispers offers a wide range of cable TV channels, including:

• ABC, CBS and NBC

• CNN and BBC World News

• BBC America

• ESPN

Wireless broadband internet access is also provided free of charge, together with an ethernet cable for those that prefer direct connection.

Kitchen

Open plan beech wood kitchen features Corian breakfast bar, American-style fridge freezer (with ice-maker and water dispenser), dishwasher, gas hob, electric oven and microwave.

Bedrooms

Each bedroom features a solid oak bed and matching furniture, air-conditioning, and a mosquito net. Linens are high quality cotton. Each bedroom opens out onto the balcony and has both an en suite bathroom and a walk in closet. The bedrooms have both 220V (European) and 110V (North American) electricity supplies, to cater for your personal essentials such as shavers and electric tooth brushes. Good quality hairdryers are provided.

Bathrooms

Each bathroom is equipped with a large walk in shower, toilet, and a vanity unit incorporating the washbasin, storage and mirrors. Two of the bathrooms feature Corian counter tops. The master bedroom bathroom features a granite counter top and a particularly upmarket washbasin and tap/faucet. Towels are of the highest standard, completing the luxury feel.

Balcony

The upper level of Whispers Villa features an 11 foot wide balcony that wraps round three sides of the building, affording spectacular views across to Mustique, down the Grenadines, and across the Ravine Bay valley. It also provides a rare view of the Ravine Bay Blowhole. Because the balcony wraps round the villa, there’s always an area in the shade, and always an area in the sun, whatever the time of day. To take advantage, Whispers comes equipped with high quality outdoor furniture: loungers, and a dining table and chairs for al fresco dining.

Terrace, Pool, Jacuzzi, Gazebo and Barbecue

The upper level balcony also provides access to the wide tiled terrace, featuring the 25 foot pool (4 feet 6 inches deep throughout) and the large outdoor jacuzzi. The pool has an infinity edge on three sides, to take advantage of the spectacular views and add to the pool’s luxurious feel. Both the pool and the jacuzzi are illuminated for romantic evenings.

Shade in this area is provided by the beautiful gazebo, under which sits comfortable chairs and a sofa in which to relax in the shade. A top quality gas barbecue is also provided for those who like to cook their own food outdoors.

Studio

The third of the three bedrooms is in the Studio apartment downstairs. The Studio is reached via a covered stairway from the main floor, ensuring you don’t get wet if it rains. As well as the bedroom, walk in closet and ensuite bathroom (see Bedrooms, above) the Studio has its own small kitchen and living area with fridge freezer, dishwasher, oven, hob, microwave, sofa, and coffee table. The Studio also has its own 35 foot by 11 foot balcony, again with superb views, making the Studio ideal for teenagers, travelling staff or, indeed, anyone who wants a little extra privacy. Towels and linens are to the same high standard as upstairs.

Gardens

Whispers Villa sits at the top of a ¾ acre plot of land. The upper area is landscaped relatively formally, with the lower two thirds deliberately left more natural. However, to make maximum use of this resource, the owners have built a concrete pathway, illuminated at night, which winds through the gardens to the bottom of the plot. This affords excellent access to the fruit tress - including lime, orange, mango, paw paw and avocado. At the end of the pathway is the gate you’ll pass through when walking to Ravine Bay beach - fewer than 10 minutes’ walk away.

Ravine Bay Beach

The nearest beach is at Ravine Bay. This is less than 10 minutes’ walk from Whispers Villa - but usually a little more on the way back, as it’s all uphill! The beach is very secluded, and you will often find you are the only people there. But if you’re after a beach with loungers and a bar, you’ll want to check out some of the others - see information on Bequia. When you’re at Ravine Bay beach, be sure to video the blowhole!

Other Services

Everything above is included in the Whispers rental price as as standard. But if you would like the owners to arrange additional services to make your stay exactly as you would want - such as a cook, on site beauty and spa services, or perhaps a tour guide, please just email and ask us.
