About This Listing
S T A R F I S H
Situated on the picturesque, uspoilt island of Bequia, STARFISH offer 2 stylish, centrally located, self contained apartments. Each apartment has its own private entrance making them perfect to rent separately or as one unit for a group of friends or 2 families.
The apartments are ideally situated in a quiet, slightly elevated, residential neighbourhood, just two minutes from Port Elizabeth Harbour. Starfish offer you an opportunity to savour the real Caribbean away from high rises and all inclusive's and a chance to enjoy life on Bequia.
Their central location makes them a perfect choice for renting after perhaps a few days sailing, or a dive course or just a great place to relax and unwind . At the end of the lane is the vegetable market, plus a supermarket and shops where you can buy groceries etc or if you prefer you can walk to many of the harbours' excellent restaurants. You can also hop on a dollar bus to take you to friendship bay, lower bay beaches or you can walk the gorgeous 10/15 minute walk to the beach at The Plantation House. Stopping along the way to enjoy a coffee at Gingerbread or a beer in the Whale boner or Frangipani bar.
On the upper level there is a large 2 bedroom apartment offering splendid views over the Harbour from its large wrap around balcony. It has a fully fitted kitchen and bathroom and has 2 bedrooms with king size beds. Both bedrooms have mosquito nets and fans. There is a living area with television and double doors opening onto the lovely balcony offering splendid views over the harbour.
On the ground floor is a 1 bedroom garden apartment which still enjoys views over the Harbour. The apartment has double doors which step out onto a a walled verandah and onto the pretty garden. This apartment has a good sized open plan living area with king sized bedroom and shower room.

THE Perfect place in Bequia!
House is very central, clean and nicely decorated.
We also hired the boat to Tobago Cays which was fantastic. Highly recommend!
A GEM doesn't come close to describing this. Do yourself a favor and don't just book a night or two in Bequia. You'll be sorry. The hardest thing to do is to watch that ferry pull in and know you have to leave. I stayed here for three nights and wish I had booked at least a week. A beautiful small villa, perched on a hill within walking distance to the wharf, groceries, and a fabulous vegetable market. Sitting on that veranda and watching all the boat traffic was soothing. You could take off walking down the wharf and to several beaches. The farther you walked, the better the beaches became; clear down to Lower Bay. Getting here is easy with at least four ferries a day. The villa was spacious and had everything you needed. If only I had booked a longer stay, I would have been able to hop aboard a boat and explored the Tobago Keys.
Very clean and comfortable apartment nicely appointed and with a pleasing view. Close to the island commercial center, but far from the beach.
They have an adorable dog in the property!
Very nice stay in downtown Bequia.
many thanks for coming to starfish apartments - glad you enjoyed your stay
Just a quick note for other guests re the beach . There is a beach a 10/15 minute walk away from the apartment - its the beach at belmont/plantation house, its very pleasant with beautiful clear water and white sand. The other more popular beaches ( Tony gibbons and Lower bay) are a 10/15 minutes ride away on a local bus which costs just 1 dollar! so nothing is that far away
The villa was great! Host accommodated us on extremely short notice. Very good value for price. Host was quick to answer e-mails/text throughout our stay. Note, there is a dog on the compound, who is very friendly, however he sheds a lot. We also paid for a cleaner to come, but all she did was feed the dog.
Hi there thanks for staying
Just to inform you the 100 ec paid locally was just for your departure clean. It did not cover daily maid service If you had required daily maid service , this was an extra, and as explained on the website, to be arranged locally. I charge everyone a departure clean of 100 ec this covers laundry etc after short term stays, enabling me to keep rental costs at a minimum. Thanks
Everything was perfect, they were waiting for us at the pier, the house is nice and good location, Baker was amazing help...evetything we asked, he arranged for us, even transport to Mayerau,Thanks again!. It is 5 stars for us, the only little complain is about kitchen, which could be a little bit cleaner.Thank you Luisa and Baker, the catamaran was superb!!
We had a wonderful time at Luisa's Starfish apartment. The place is charming and cozy, bright and airy with a wonderful balcony. Location could not have been more perfect - a short walk from the ferry terminal and many nice cafes and restaurants. It was a great base for exploring the island. If you're planning a trip to Tobago Cays, you might want to ask Luisa and Baker about their custom made itineraries - we were not aware about this opportunity but we're hoping to take advantage of this next time we're in Bequia.
A lot of help from great host. Good view of the city, and nice house.
