Thanks for your kind mail. The location, the house, the beach and the people around are all very nice and we are enjoying our stay a lot. We have been in a bit passive mode so we opted for cooking instead of dining out and it is still fantastic. Everything is fine :)
Thanks once again, best wishes David

Lara, it's wonderful! Joy and Felix are really great, the view is amazing and the house is way more spacious than we need, but lovely. We haven't used to beach path yet, but drove to Lower Bay for swimming/snorkeling and have explored around a little bit. Met Robin today and met Kelson yesterday. All of them are really nice people.

"Sights and Sounds villa is the perfect place to escape a hectic world. It position above Hope Beach and looking towards Mustique is stunning. The villa itself is spacious and beautifully finished and furnished. It harmonizes with the island surroundings and makes the best of its position. The best bit was the welcome given by Lucille of Grenadine Escape and the staff of the villa. They made it feel as though we were staying in our own home. As for Bequia, well I have fallen in love with it. I am torn with keeping it a secret and telling everyone about it. Already planning a return."

Thank you, we had a really lovely break and relished in all Bequia had to offer. The Villa was perfect and we made the most of all the home comforts.
Troupy and I are intending to join you at the Baie de Sucre event this Thursday evening when we can give more feedback. Until then thank you so much for all your efforts in getting us there and enabling us to have a very enjoyable holiday.
