“Pure Bliss”
Reviewed 14 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

It's quite hard to know where to begin this review. This is a very special place!! The setting, though up in the hills of Lower Bay, is spectacular. The rising sun is only beaten by the rising moon coming up over the Atlantic side of the hills. It is magical. Sitting in the gorgeous pool and looking at the rest of the island never gets old. The plunge pool is the perfect spot in between day treks and before and after dinner. A quick swim before bed looking at the sparkling lights of St. Vincent and Port Elizabeth is just beautiful.

The house is elegantly appointed with just about everything you could need. The beds and linens are so comfortable and the bathrooms are spacious and charming. They bring the outside in in such an imaginative way! We were two couples and had plenty of space and privacy when needed. Though there is air conditioning we did not need to use is.

The kitchen was very well equipped. You can tell it has been stocked by someone who is both knowledgeable about cooking and enjoys the process. Having the living room open to the kitchen means no one feels left out during meal preparation. There are lots of linens and nice plates so it is easy to set a pretty table.

You are surrounded by peace and nature: birds, an abundance of flowers, a consistent gentle breeze and unbelievable views. If I never had to leave my life would be fulfilled. Tom and Anne have put their heart and soul into the place with ingenious ideas and the comfort and happiness of the guests at the forefront of their minds. Take the car- you will need it! The island is fun to explore and once you get the hang of it, driving there is really not a problem. It would be a shame to not venture to Friendship, Spring, La Pompe etc.

If you are looking for a vacation that is a home away from home then you have found it!! Walk in, unpack into the plentiful closet space, pour a drink, kick your feet up and soak in the view and the ambience. You will feel transported!!

Sincere thanks to Tim, Anne and Jal for all you did to make our vacation so very special!!

“Breathtakingly Beautiful”
Reviewed 9 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

My husband and I just left Ravenala on our first trip to Bequia. The home sits on a hill overlooking the most breathtaking view you'll ever see. The infinity pool and outdoor space provide many sun-filled, fun-filled days of relaxing but there is plenty of shade to lounge. The home is well equipped and comfortable with a beautiful master suite and shower that overlooks the bay. Most important are the wonderful managers, Anne and Tim Parsons that take care of your every need.

“A fantastic house with fantastic views on a fantastic island”
Reviewed 4 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed in Ravanala House on Bequia to celebrate our 25th Anniversary and it was just perfect. The house is beautiful and has fantastic views of Lower Bay, Princess Margareta Bay and Admiralty Bay.
The house has wonderful amenities such as a/c in the bedrooms, tv in the upstairs bedroom and in the living area, fully stocked kitchen, comfortable furniture---inside and outside, and last, but certainly not least, a fabulous infinity pool. But the best amenity was the property manager, Jal. He was just fabulous!
The owners were also so great to help us plan our visit to Ravanala House. Anne answered our many,many questions and made our visit there, and our Anniversary a great adventure with special memories that we will always treasure.
Ravanala House was just perfect. I'm so glad we chose to celebrate our Anniversary there in that fantastic house on that fantastic island.

“Exceptional view, beautiful finishing throughout the house”
Reviewed 6 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015
2
people found this review helpful

Everything in the house is beautifully finished: the pool, the terrace, showers, kitchen, etc. Kitchen is very well equipped. 3 TVs each with cable - input selection is different for every TV but Jal can explain. The terrace has both a dinning table and sofas. We loved to relax on the sofas in the shade with the gentle breeze and enjoy the exceptional view of the beaches and harbor. Tim was always very helpful if we needed anything. He picked us up at the dock when we arrived and dropped us off when we left at 6am.

The house is on the better side of the island close to the nicest two beaches: Lower Bay and Princess Margaret Bay. We were glad that we did not stay close to Spring Bay or Industry Bay beaches which were covered in a foot of seaweed when we visited. While Lower Bay and Princess Margaret beaches are truly beautiful, we have visited other small Caribbean islands (Virgin Gorda and Anguilla) with more/better beach options. The owners rent a car for $50/day but the island is pretty small and driving eerie so we only used it for two days during the week. The beach is a 5mn walk down the hill but it's a steep climb back up. We'd usually walk down to Lower Bay; swim/snorkel/relax; walk over to Princess Margaret Beach; then walk into town; pick up a few things and take a taxi back for around US$12 (EC$30). We mostly used Tim's Taxi that we recommend. The walk from the house into town is about 30-40mn with only two small hills to climb. Bequia is a very quiet island but there are several restaurant options, and prices weren't as expensive as some other Caribbean islands.

“A Little Slice of Perfect”
Reviewed 10 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

When you rent a home in a place you've never been, from people you only speak to via email, there is bound to be some level of uncertainty.

If you are considering Ravenala, you can put any worries you have to rest. Tim and Anne are the epitome of perfection when it comes to hosts/house managers. From the moment they picked us up at the airport we felt perfectly at ease. After showing us around the property they let us settle in and then made a scrumptious welcome dinner. The following day Tim gave us a tour of the island, pointing out everything you need to know and stopping a few places so we could pick up some groceries (they'll also shop for you in advance).

Throughout the duration of our stay, there was never a question or request that wasn't met with speed and a smile. If you only got the house, that would be reason alone to stay at Ravenala, but Tim and Anne are the icing on an already amazing cake.

In terms of the house itself, the view is absolutely spectacular. The pictures don't do it justice. The porch and pool area serve as a fantastic place to enjoy morning coffee or an afternoon beverage while you occasionally gaze out across the bay and pinch yourself to confirm that it's all real.

The location, while up a moderate hill (can't get those views on the ground after all), is only a 10 minute walk down to what in our opinion was Bequia's nicest beach.

While we did not take them up on it, the house offers a car on site that can be rented for 50 USD a day. We opted for taxi's most of the time, rotating between Noel and Rudy.

The rooms were all well taken care of with air conditioning, screens, TVs, safes and amazing views.

The kitchen had everything you'd possibly need, including a propane grill out back.

As I sit back in snowy NYC and reflect on our trip, I have nothing but fond memories of our stay in Bequia.

I would highly recommend the island and the lovely home that Tim and Anne have built.
