Description

The space

Balliceaux House (pronounced “Bali-so”) is a three bedroom villa which sits perched above crown point and offers stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean, Spring bay, and the islands of Battowia and Balliceaux.

The villa is completely open and aptly designed for the tropics. Constructed primarily of Brazilian Greenheart and Bequia stone, the style is warm and contemporary with a mix of antiques and vintage furnishings.

The grounds are extremely private and well insulated by lush terraced gardens. There is separation of the main house and guest wing making it ideal for couples to share the villa. Indoor and outdoor dining tables are available, and the kitchen is equipped with a thermador gas range and outside grill.

The atmosphere is pristine and windswept with regular trade winds off the Atlantic. Large ocean views are consistent from nearly every part of the villa.

My husband and I loved our time at Balliceaux House. The house has been well taken care of and has everything you'll need for a relaxing Caribbean holiday. The balcony is where you will want to spend most of your time either lounging in one of the very comfortable chairs or cooling off in the pristine plunge pool. Staying in the main house, as we did, was fantastic but this would also be a great place to visit with friends as there are another 2 double bedrooms connected to the house. Bequia itself is a quiet, peaceful island and is less built up than nearby St. Vincent. All the action is centered around Port Elizabeth (a 10 min. taxi ride or 30 min. walk from Balliceaux House) where you will find a small, but well appointed, grocery stores, bakeries, and fruit stands to get you everything you need. This is where you will also find a selection of local restaurants, and bars. The host, Steve was great, organizing housekeeping services as well as coordinating our arrival with local taxi services to get us up to the house.
