Sights & SoundsHope, Bequia St Vincent and the Grenadines A tranquil setting
Sights & Sounds is an exceptional new villa, located on a lush two-acre parcel in the quiet and uniquely private, Hope Estate. The expansive ocean views from this hilltop sanctuary are some of the best on the island. You'll see the nearby islands of Balliceaux, Battowia and Mustique as you look out across the sparkling Atlantic Ocean. From this vantage point, it is not unheard of to witness a mother whale and her calf frolicking in the watery playground below. If you close your eyes you will hear birds chirping and tree frogs singing along with the rhythmic pounding of waves as they crash into Hope Bay, thus the name, Sights & Sounds.
Beautifully designed, gorgeous furnishings
The architect of Sights & Sounds is Beyer Binder Belle of New York City. World renowned Architects for many landmark buildings in New York, London and Washington DC, as well as premier homes. This is an ideal property for discerning clients looking to avoid commercial areas and enjoy wonderful seclusion with a special ambiance, sophisticated interior design and world class build quality. The heart of this 6000 square-foot property is the great room, which encompasses the living and dining areas. This room literally "opens" up to the views through a series of five large tri-fold doors located on three sides of the room all leading to a generously-sized covered veranda - seamlessly integrating indoor and outdoor living space. The living area is cool and light, with a spectacular vaulted Brazilian Ipe wood ceiling and architecturally designed Ipe floors.

Above Bequia's remote surf beach this headland faces out to the Atlantic. Broad, green and wooded hillsides with wonderfully cooling breezes and ocean views across the rugged islands of Balliceau, Battowia and south to Mustique. This is the location of choice for established islanders who enjoy the sunrise, elevation, peace and quiet and cool breezes.
Guest Reviews"The villa was incredible." Johann, March 2009
A Great Escape
We could not think of a better way to spend New Years, than in the Grenadines with great friends and family coupled with the friendliness of the island. This was our second visit to Bequia and stay at Sights & Sounds.
Everything you could want and more. Our group was comprised of two familes of four, which included three 5 year olds. The villa layout is fantastic and complimented by high end appliances, beautiful and comfortable furnishings as well as every bell and whistle you could need. Nothing about our accomodations said "rental property." This is truly a luxury property with all the conveniences and comforts of home. Each day started with a great breakfast that included fresh fruit from the property collected by the house staff and then the difficult decision of whether to go to a new beach or stay on the property and enjoy all of the amenities / conveniences of the villa. Many days were spent lounging around both pools with the kids, preparing a rotisserie chicken on the grill and enjoying cold Hairouns from St Vincent. The saltwater pools--- a plunge pool that waterfalls into an infinity pool which melts into the bay below--will erase any and every stress you may have had. In addition, the pools have great optional gating that provided us peace of mind with our young children. The location on the hill side allowed us spectacular views and pleasant winds. The outdoor showers with waterfall showerheads feel so great after a day on the beach. The villa is set up for entertaining and accomodates a large group while still providing everyone with plenty of space. I dozed off many nights while laying on a lounge chair, star gazing and listening to the sounds of the tree frogs.. Truly relaxing... The house staff were nothing short of first class and super friendly.
Bequia- Great, uncrowded beaches coupled with friendly locals, beach bars and quality restaurants. The island is small enough so a traveler can become familiar with the whole Island quickly while exploring a new beach every day.
We are looking forward to making Bequia and Sights & Sounds an annual event!

Best anniversary Ever!!!
Spent our 25th wedding anniversary at Sights and Sounds. It was wonderful!! We didn't want to leave the property. The house has the most gorgeous private setting, very comfortable outdoor seating, picturesque infinity pool, and beautiful/immaculately clean interior. The house staff, Felix and Joy were very kind. Could not of had a more wonderful anniversary. We were happy to just sit and read and look at the view for hours. Just what my husbanded needed to relax and get away from work. There is not one thing negative about our stay.
