My girlfriend and I stayed at Burke house, on February 2013. We had such a great time.
The house is so charming. The views from the terraces and from the bedrooms are outstanding. The fresh breeze coming from the sea always refreshed the house. It was wonderful to wake up in the morning and sip a cup of coffee looking directly at sea.
The privacy was complete, such relaxing and beautiful.
Marva, the housekeeper has been marvelous. She cooked for us great dishes: lobsters, barracuda, fresh fish, bread fruits and so many others delicatessen. She has been always ready to help us in our request.
Lusane and her husband, the owners, are a very friendly couple, that were always present in case of need to provide all the help and the assistant we could need.
Bequea is a small great island, with nice beaches, good restaurants and some small shops that can provide you with excellent food from abroad or great fruits and vegetables from the island.
Staying there it has been like staying in paradise for two weeks.
We hope to be able to come back one day!
A final special thanks to Lucille who helped us with all the information we could need and greeted us at the airport with a bottle of fresh water.

Before our fab holiday becomes a distant memory I thought I’d get this email to you!
Our experience with you and Lucille at Grenadine Escape was second to none. You both looked after us exceptionally well with no moans or annoyance at the constantly changing spec. Your recommendations and help were utterly invaluable and very much appreciated: from flight panics to lost phones, ensuring a hire car was at the airport to meet us and sorting a driving licence for us.
Our first week at Burke House was truly magical. Not only is the location absolutely stunning but the house really encompasses the true Bequia feel: relaxed, genuine and unique. No, it does not have the hot and cold running comforts some people expect and yes, there are a lot of stairs but we firmly believe that it is the better for it. Besides with views like that (including the loos and showers!), who cares! We are also utterly in love with Marva. The way she looked after us was exceptional: from subtle, surreptitious housekeeping to advice on buying lobster at the fish market, Marva’s help was invaluable. She really was the icing on an already scrumptious cake.
Thank you again for all your amazing help and a wonderful holiday.
