A beautiful, hidden villa, located in peaceful Crown Point Lands on Bequia's East coast. A unique "driftwood feel" property with an open plan upper level and separate self contained apartment below.
One separate double bedroom with en suite on the upper level, a further two double beds on a mezzanine floor and another double underneath, in / off the living area.
A self contained guest apartment on the lower level with double bed, bathroom and full kitchenette facilities.
Currently a rental property, Fridays provides a spacious and comfortable experience offering the option to rent as an elegant, spacious villa for a single couple or for extended families of up to 12 guests maximum.
Upper Level Layout
The upper level is spacious and open plan with large wood dining table, comfortable sofas, and a well equipped modern kitchen.
Large double doors along the entire front of the living area open out to the huge patio / pool deck area, providing the ideal indoor/outdoor living space so common here in the Caribbean. There are fantastic views down through the valley to Crescent Bay and the ocean beyond.
The polished concrete floor is carefully inlaid with stones and shells collected and laid by hand. The entire house has been designed with a definite relaxed, driftwood feel.
A double bed is also offered in this large space and can be used as a daybed or additional bedroom if required.
There is a mezzanine floor overlooking the living area which contains 2 further double beds, accessible by ladder, so an ideal den for children. These areas share a family sized bathroom with the living area.
The master bedroom, also with double bed, is located just off the living area with private en suite bathroom.
Lower Level Layout
The lower level of the property contains a self contained guest apartment with double bed, bathroom and full kitchenette facilities.
Just off the studio is another room, currently designed for a music studio / sound booth, but could be developed into a small en suite bedroom.
There is an outside shower on the porch of this lower level living space, perfect for rinsing off after a visit to the beach. A laundry room / store area is also located on this lower level .
Through the large double doors along the front of the upper level is a shaded verandah, perfect for alfresco dining and relaxing in the cool shade. Down some steps is the sun deck area and swimming pool for a refreshing dip while taking in the bay & ocean views

Quiet Secluded Residential Area
Crown Point is a quiet residential area on Bequia, close to 2 lovely palm fringed beaches (Crescent Bay Beach and Spring Bay) whilst also just a 10 minute drive from the harbour, with dive shops, bars and restaurants.
Fridays provides the ideal location for a peaceful, relaxing vacation, quiet and cool but still close to beaches and amenities.
The entire process can be handled remotely - ie while you are in the UK.Purchase procedure:
1. Make your offer for your chosen property through us. We present your offer, and work to bring the sale to an agreement with the owner.
2. Appoint a local Lawyer to handle your purchase (list of recommended lawyers can be provided upon request) exchange contact details and discuss the purchase arrangements, as you wish.
3. Sign Agreement of Sale & deposit 10% of purchase price in ESCROW account with the lawyer.
The Agreement of Sale Contract is prepared by the lawyer for approval by both parties, before being finalised and signed by both parties. This is a binding agreement, the only circumstances where you would retrieve the deposit would be if:
- the seller fails to perform (for example if there was not clear title)
- or if your ALHL is not issued (this is extremely rare).
4. Alien Land Holders Licence (ALHL) Application (specific to the property & applied for at the time of agreement of purchase ).
Provide the following details to your local lawyer :
- Date and place of birth
- Copy of passport
- Bank reference (not finances just a letter of reliability)
- Police certificate of clear record (applied for from your local police station or online, in your home country
The police certificate is usually fairly swift and at least straightforward
The lawyer makes the ALHL application and searches to check clear title on the property
5. ALHL is issued (this usually takes 2 to 3 months).
6. Complete the purchase (you deposit the balance of purchase price and the signed deeds of conveyance are released). At this point the property is yours.
Purchase costs are straightforward;
- 5% Stamp Duty
- approximately 6% ALHL
- legal fees
Legal fees are standard and the lawyer you instruct can provide a detailed breakdown of the costs.
We advise allowing 13% to cover the costs.
The lawyer can advise on personal or company ownership;
Company ownership provides automatic exemption from work permit. Residency is a simple formality with property ownership.
Many buyers choose to own their property through a company which can be set up easily, the lawyer can advise on the costs and fees for this.
There is no capital gains tax, no inheritance tax and annual property taxes are negligible. Funds can be repatriated freely.
