What Past Guests Are Saying
Little corner of paradise
We spent 3 lovely weeks at Bella Vista which is the apartment at La Dolce Vista and decided to return for a longer stay this coming year after only 2 days! It is a charming,quiet spot that is convenient to the town and 2 beautiful beaches. Our hosts, Liz and Greg, are most congenial and we had several enjoyable evenings at some of the island's excellent restaurants.

A perfect apartment for an idyllic peaceful and relaxing Caribbe
We stayed at Bella Vista at La Dolce Vita for 2 weeks in February 2012. We were so delighted in both with Bequai and Bella Vista that we have booked for 4 weeks in 2013.
Lz and Greg, the owners, live on the first floor of the villa and are attentive but unobtrusive hosts.
Bella Vista is the apartment on the ground floor. Its location is idyllic, set in a well kept tropical garden with superb views of the sea and the surrounding area.
The pool, which you have exclusive use of, is set on the same floor as the apartment and is glorious and a delight to swim in. Kept immaculate by Greg it has a purification system that does not involve chlorine which makes swimming and relaxing in the pool so very agreeable.
The apartment has a wonderfully cool bedroom with a king size bed, a well equipped and airy kitchen. A bathroom with an excellent shower, and small TV/sitting room.
There is a terrace overlooking the swimming pool that is in the sun for most of the day and another at the rear of the apartment which is always in the shade. Perfect for breakfast and to sit and read or snooze.
Twice weekly maid service means the place is pristine and linen and towels are superb.
Although Bequia is a small island we found it useful to hire a car for the duration although it would be possible to use taxis which are readily available. Bella Vista is built on a hillside and access from the road is by quite a number of steps which would make it unsuitable for anyone who has trouble climbing stairs.
The islanders are a delight, the beaches glorious and Bequia itself exactly what you would expect of a Caribbean island. Liz and Greg are utterly delightful and very helpful.
We would unreservedly recommend both Bequia and Bella Vista and are looking forward with enthusiasm to our return.

An excellent and very private stay in a beautiful location.
We stayed at Bella Vista for six days as part of our round the world trip and enjoyed every minute. Liz and Greg were helpful and thoughtful but allowed us the privacy we wanted. The apartment was immaculate and well stocked and feeling at home was easy. We loved the pool, the views and even the visits from the dogs. We self catered because we enjoyed staying in and the island has some good shops which Liz directed us to.We enjoyed a trip on The Friendship Rose to the Tobago Cayes and will return to stay here again at sometime in the future.

Delightful, private, incredible view, walk to beach
We have stayed at Bella Vista three times. Each visit lasted a week, but we could have stayed much longer had we the time.
The apartment is located under Liz and Greg's house, but because the house is sited on a hill, one is almost unaware of their presence. They have three small dogs, but they are very cute and sometimes come down to visit if the door to the gallery is open. The apartment overlooks the ocean as well as a picturesque valley, a dairy farm and a beautiful palm tree grove. It is one of the best views on Bequia.
Liz and Greg are just the right combination of welcoming, there to answer questions, but leave you to your privacy.
Liz and Greg, Canadians, have lived on Bequia for a long time, know everyone on Bequia and on St. Vincent, where Greg works. They can help with plans for trips to various St Vincent sites as well as for trips around the islands.
The pool is wonderful with an incredible view of the Caribbean Sea and two offshore islands that light up at sunset.
The unit consists of a bedroom with a wonderful ocean view, a covered but out door Sitting Room/Dining area, a nice bathroom, good sized Kitchen, should you decide to cook at home, and small indoor Sitting Room with small TV. We have never watched TV there so I don't know what stations are available. All the rooms are connected by a gallery that runs the entire length of the apartment.
The house is located in Spring, a very private enclave about a half hour's walk to town. It is also very easy on Bequia to arrange for a taxi to be assigned to you for your entire stay. Liz and Greg can accommodate that. It is also within walking distance of a very sweet prototypical Caribbean beach complete with charming and private beach bar.
We have been to Bequia eight times. Once we discovered this place we always try to get it for our vacation.
We highly recommend this place even though it will make it more difficult for us to get it.
Go No Further
You can find no better place for your stay in Bequia. The view, the pool, the hosts and the accommodations were all excellent. Town is a short walk - 1/2 hour - and if peaceful with all the comforts of home and then some is what you want, you have found it.
Hosts are extremely friendly and helpful. They helped make our two weeks on the island a truly restful and fun vacation.

Magnificent hillside home with stunning views of the sea
Bella Vista in Bequia is a fully equipped lower floor apartment with a surrounding balcony and a patio that opens onto a pool. The apartment faces southeast so you have a view of the Caribbean Sea and surrounding islands. There were ceiling fans which kept it cool. It is located on the quiet side of the island in an area of large homes many of which are occuped full time. There is a beach right at the bottom of the hill if you don't want to go into Princess Margaret beach. If you want to go into town for dinner you are only 5 minutes away. You can call a taxi or have a rental car available while you are there. We chose the car which Liz arranged for us. Since it was so pleasant sitting on the patio in the evening we cooked most of our meals at home. There are plenty of shops to buy groceries and anything else you might need. Bequia is our favorite island and we stayed two weeks. We would have stayed longer if we could. The only drawback to Bella Vista which didn't bother us but might some people is that there are about 20 steps down from where you park the car or get out of the taxi to the door of the apartment.

We have been going to Bequia for over ten years and La Dolca Vita it is our favourite winter get-away vacation home. Liz and Greg are gracious hosts who know all the best places to go on the island of Bequia. And if you decided to do very little, as we often do, then this is an ideal spot to do it in. The apartment is comfortable, clean, and efficient and has all that one needs for a relaxing vacation. The pool is a pleasure to use if you don't feel like going to the beach, and sitting out on the deck, while soaking in a spectacular view, is a a great way to get rid of the stress that comes with not living in paradise! We highly recommend this wonderful vacation home!
