<br> A delightful bay, fresh and quiet with perhaps the prettiest crescent shaped beach on the island. <br><br> A wonderful old beach bar nestles in the palm trees by the beach. Sharing the quiet qualities of Spring in a smaller brighter valley with astonishing views of Battowia and Baliceau. <br><br> This area has a coastal feel, smaller hillsides and fresher breezes. Just around the headland is Bequia's much loved Turtle Sanctuary where hatchlings are protected and released.
Guest Reviews“ ‘Ijeoma’ is luxurious throughout with such attention to detail. This hideaway is a one-off that must be savoured and not rushed... I have traveled the world far and wide but nothing compares to Bequia and I feel emotional at the thought of leaving... I return with batteries fully charged.” Nina, Salisbury, England
“Seven days of relaxing is an understatement. We have added this wonderful experience to our lives’ memories... The island and this house is a great getaway. Thank you for letting us have this opportunity, and we will be back.“ Gary & Janet, Colorado, USA
"Out of this World"
Visited Feb 2016
We are a married couple in our mid-sixties. We found this studio through Grenadine Villas.
We first rented it for about 10 days in late March 2014. We enjoyed our stay so much that we returned at the end of November for another 11 days..
This is an ideal spot for couples that want to "get away from it all". The property is situated in the quiet Industry Bay sector on the eastern side of Bequia, perched slightly above the main road (a single lane)..The location is roughly 250 meters to an empty 500 meter long beach on the Atlantic, 70 meters to the Sugar Reef Restaurant on the beach, 1200 meters (15 minute walk) to the Firefly restaurant. Elizabethtown, the main town on the island, is about a 35 minute walk on the other side of the island.
The studio is attached to a larger and quite beautiful house which overlooks the Atlantic and the islands of Balliceaux and Mustique, amongst others. Directly in front of the main owners house there is a marvelous infinity pool where my wife spends a lot of her time. While relaxing in the pool one can see the ocean and the islands on your left and the hills with the occasional house on your right,
The studio (Panorama) is completely open. It contains a small kitchen area with a cook-top stove, a microwave oven, a toaster oven and a small fridge.There is a round kitchen table with 4 chairs, but you will undoubtedly eat outside on the beautiful terrace next to the pool. There is a TV area in front of the queen-size bed. The bed is next to 4 glass French doors that overlook the pool, with the ocean and the islands in the distance. A beautiful view to wake up to!
The warm and friendly service is ably headed by the lovely Abbie,assisted by Barbara. The house is immaculate..Abbie's husband, Richard, picks you up at the pier or he airport, takes you into town to buy the provisions and delivers you to the house without any problems. The gardens on the property contain a wide variety of local plants and are beautifully maintained by the courteous gardener.
Staying here makes one feel as though one is part of the "rich and famous".
My only reserve - alas, there must be a reserve - is the at the wi-fi internet is very weak and intermittent. But by saying that, it shows how far I had to search for a flaw in this spectacular property.
In November we found that it was quite humid and there were ravenous sandfies that we did not remember from March. This has nothing to do with the property.These sandflies are the most dangerous animals that you will find on the island.

Hi, the apartment is awesome. thank you very much for helping us to stay at this amazing place. I have a request regarding a local drivers license: Could you apply one for me? Please find attached the required documents. I spoke to Richard and he will get me tomorrow at 9am. Will the license be ready by then?
Guestbook, March 2014
"This is an excellent vacation destination"
group of three couples rented Ijeoma the last week of June and this
house is perfect in every way. The house lived up to our expectations
and looks exactly like the pictures. The house is brand new, modern, in
excellent working order and sparkling clean. All of the rooms are
well decorated, the beds are very comfortable, and the kitchen is
stocked with what you need (silverware, plates, appliances, etc...).
The grounds are well maintained and provide a nice variety of local
color to enhance the home.
The infinity pool is beyond words - you can just float in the pool and look out over the beautiful water in the bay below. This alone is worth it...
From the house you can walk down to Industry Bay for a swim/snorkel, the Turtle Sanctuary, or a wonderful meal at Sugar Reef Cafe.
This vacation rental is perfect, and well worth it.
"Thank you for the e-mail it has reminded us that we wanted to write to you to thank you for your help. The whole booking process was remarkably easy especially as we gave such short notice of coming to Bequia and then disappearing from contact on a boat over to the island - from a speculative e-mail to a reality and throughout you gave us confidence in both the villa and the company which is so important these days. On arrival at your office both Debbie and Sandy were very accommodating letting us leave luggage with them. We also loved the day sail on the friendship rose and all the crew made that trip by far the best value day trip that we have had in our sx month long travels."

“A wonderful week in 'Panorama'. Such a lovely setting for our first visit to Bequia. The accommodation is lovely.”
Sheila & David,
“We decided to come for easter weekend and this was our first choice.We will surely recommend Ijeoma to our friends and family and look forward to returning next year.
We were very happy with the service received.
Amanda & Antonio,
“We had a wonderful, peaceful and exciting time with turtle swims, sailing, calm warm beaches, gentle kind people and great food. This is a paradise island.
We were welcomed by the housekeeper with a refreshing, cool drink on arrival and were immediately relaxed and felt at home.
The housekeeper and her husband as a gift taught us how to cook salt-cod and breadfruit. This was fantastic.”
Eoin, Nina & Ila,
"Ijeoma on Bequia was a great choice for our group...
The soft sand and warm sea were only a short stroll down from the property and the family all felt relaxed.
The mix of private and shared spaces worked out perfectly. We will most definitely be coming back next year. "
