Private Estate Location
Located in the serene residential area of Spring Estate, on the North East coast of Bequia. Spring Estate is not too far from the hustle and bustle of the harbour and it's amenities, but far enough to have complete peace and quiet.
Aquarius is spreads over 3 floors:
- 2 bedrooms & media room on the lower level
- 2 bedrooms & main living / kitchen / swimming pool on the middle level
- Sun / party deck on top floor
Top Floor - Terrace / sun deck
The top terrace was initially planned as a luxury master suite accessed via spiral staircase. It is currently a sun deck / terrace - a wonderful large space as is, with the stunning ocean views and refreshing breeze, but with huge potential for a master bedroom suite. The structure for a master bedroom suite is already in place, plumbing etc.
Middle Floor - Main Living Spaces
Contains the main living areas with spacious kitchen to rear and study room off centre. This kitchen opens out to huge interior dining room / lounge. This area is surrounded on 3 sides by the expanded swimming pool, with the main section of the swimming pool in front, and additional sun deck overlooking Spring and the islands of Balliceaux and Battowia.
Middle Floor - Master Bedrooms
A huge en suite bedroom is located on each wing of the villa - both accessed from the main living space using little wooden bridges over the swimming pool sides. South facing with huge wooden louvered windows in each to capture those dynamic ocean views, with access to another sun deck a few steps below pool level - ideal for sunbathing. Both have modern ensuite bathrooms also with the same stunning views.
Ground Floor Spaces
There are two good sized bedrooms with high ceilings, walk through closet areas and modern ensuite bathrooms. Both ground floor bedrooms have air-conditioning and a spacious outside covered deck.
In the centre there is a vast media room with w.c. This space could easily be converted to a fifth bedroom if required. There is a cool corridor to the rear, backing onto water tank, with another rear access, that could be used as wine storage.
Bespoke Infinity Swimming Pool
One of the main features that makes this house so special is the swimming pool that surrounds the living room and the two upper bedrooms, an added feature that will not be found in any other villas on the island. A Saltwater infinity swimming pool 35 ft by 12 ft with a main depth of 5 ft (4ft in the extended sides.

A quiet international community of independent villas on the hillsides of this green and peaceful valley. The boutique Firefly Hotel, and old sugar mill is located here. The old tall Coconut palms run down to the coral sand beach facing the ocean. Completely away from the Harbour but astonishingly close for a visit for shops, restaurants and the bustle of island life.
Purchasing land in a foreign country can seem like a daunting task. We are here from start to finish of the process, and pride ourselves with a strong relationship with previous buyers, assisting in settling new owners into the island and their property. We are happy to assist with any part, from the handover, relocating, shipping, staffing, and continuing through our rental program.
We extend our full concierge services, and regularly handle all arrangements for potential purchasers visiting the islands for viewings - private or scheduled flights, transfers, accommodation, island briefings, tours and property viewings.
We arrange and lead viewings ensuring they are comfortable, relaxed and well timed. We provided detailed printed material and can photograph aspects of the property which are of particular interest to you, ensuring that all follow up material is focused for you.
From helping you find the right property, assisting in assessment & evaluation, advice on legal processes to various areas surrounding architecture, design, project management, property maintenance, management, and rental.
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.
