Dragonfly is a private retreat on the small Caribbean island of Bequia in the nation of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. The house has three bedrooms, a double with a king size four poster bed and two twin bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, sleeping six people comfortably. Dragonfly is a three minute walk to Lower Bay Beach widely thought of as the best swimming beach in the Eastern Caribbean. Being near the equator the island has year round sunshine throughout.
New for 2016. All theapplianceshave been upgraded. There is a huge new widescreen TV, new BBQ and meshed louvered solid greenheart windows and doors throughout.
All the rooms lead out onto the partly covered terrace in Bequia stone which overlooks the bay below. The house is surrounded by a landscaped, fenced garden, home to frangipani, lime, bougainvillea and sapodilla. At night guests have a choice of dining outside by the light of hanging wicker baskets and the fireflies in the garden, or eating indoors around the long coffee table in the air conditioned living room.
The new master bedroom boasts a beautiful hand-carved king size four poster bed. The twin bedrooms have two large single beds which slot together to form king sized double bed.All the sheets and towels (including beach towels) are supplied at the house. The bedrooms have lamps for reading, fans for keeping cool, and radios for catching up on the local reggae. There are mosquito nets hanging over the beds for the rainy season and coils of incense to burn.
This enchanting unique house has 3 bathrooms. All bathrooms have been exquisitely designed by Lady Alexandra Connel. as well as being practical and comfortable, each bathroom has been finished in its own unique way
Incredible views on offer at this wonderful house
The house is on the hillside, facing west with wonderful 180 degree views over the Caribbean Sea, and in the evening the ever-changing colours of the sun going down over the far horizon. A three minute walk brings you down to the gently lapping water's edge. As going back up is quite steep we recommend you rent a jeep for getting around the island, also perfect for whizzing up and down the hill for the less energetic.
FOOD AND WINE
Fully Equipped staff can serve breakfast, lunch and dinner at an additional cost. Bar service.
Restaurants on the island are good and varied (Italian, Swedish, French, Caribbean, American)

Lucille, a huge thank you for all you did to make our holiday such a success. The arrangements were all put together perfectly and efficiently , we could not have asked for more.
We had a wonderful time at Dragonfly and we really loved the island.
First the island... stunning scenery which is unspoiled and dramatically beautiful, even where it has been built upon. Pretty in places, wild in places, and appealingly a little rough around some of the edges so it does not feel like its presenting too much of a 'prepared' surface to visitors. The islanders ( little kids, old ladies, fishermen, young Rasta guys...) seemed to genuinely welcome us when meeting on the road/ beach/ pathway, they were kind , helpful and fun, which made it even more of a pleasure to explore. And there is a lot to explore as the terrain of the island makes it much bigger than it appears at first. Gideon's handover lesson about our 4WD and low ratio gears was very much needed !! The lack of litter anywhere is perhaps a small point but shows people are taking a pride in the place. The places and things we loved would be a very long list. It is a very special place and we hope you lucky islanders can hang onto all that over the years under inevitable pressure from more of us visitors...
Very best wishes,
Cathy, Charles, Joe, Olivia and Cat

"Thank you so much for arranging such a superb location at short notice. I wrote more here than I have for months back at home. Bequia definitely cured the crisis. I will be back! We saw the green flash three times from the balcony during our short but very sweet week here and my goodness did the Easter sailing races look divine from up here. I now understand why those sails on the horizon gave Bequia its native name ‘Island of the Clouds.’ Thank you all!"

What would you like to do first?
Patrick Hepburn, our driver and manager of Dragonfly Villa at Lower Bay, is keen for us to have a good first impression of the island. The usual procedure of checking into accommodation and meeting staff is bypassed for a trip straight to the beach. Patrick has brought towels and a hamper of iced drinks to the delight of my chirping team in the back seat.
Actually he's brought everything you'd need to survive on the beach all week. Fold up beach beds, umbrella for virgin flight white skin and a hamper of fresh fruit. Do we need to check in at all? Apparently not. Patrick is taking our luggage to the house for the maid to unpack. Lower Bay is a half-mile crescent of clean white sand. This afternoon it's all ours to share with an old Rastafarian fisherman and his children. On a small promontary over looking Lower Bay to one side and Princess Margaret Beach to the other is The Retreat.
The house sleeps six and will provide a chef if required. You can walk to either of the Grenadines finest beaches in less than a minute."
