<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“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
“ ‘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.”

"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.
"The villa was lovely - made more so by being the only people staying in the building (if all the units are occupied i am sure the experience is very different). However our final day was really disappointing - we had set it aside for a day by the pool to catch up on thoughts and get some sun - but from the moment we discovered that the pool pump had failed and was spewing water all over the laundry room and essentially emptying the pool before our eyes the day was in chaos as the plumber had to be called, the electric circuit got wet tripping several fuses and disabling the internet and cctv so the security firm also had to come to come round and basically the villa was far from our private idyl that day :( .... realise these things happen but just annoyed it happened when we were there. Apart from that day loved our time there and would like to thank the owners and the house keeper. As with all properties there are quirks - the shower is not that strong and the floor gets very slippery but the pluses far outweighed the negatives and i will always remember eating hot toast under the milky way.
Bequia seems to be getting inundated with villas so will certainly recommend any friends coming to the area to look you up and we hope to return one day and just keep our fingers crossed that the island doesn't change too much."

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. "
