An exceptional Bequia property situated at the top of Belmont Hill on Bequia Island, overlooking all of Admiralty Bay, Lower Bay, Port Elizabeth and significant parts of Spring, Industry and Park Estates, with views to the north beyond Bequia of most of St. Vincent down to the waterfront at Kingstown (9 miles away), a view to the west south west to Pigeon (Ramier) Island, a view to the south to the Pillories. There is no other Bequia location to compare.
Pleasant Top on Bequia is available for rental between April and October each year. It has a pool, three bedrooms and three bath and is the most appealing property on the island of Bequia with an incomparable atmosphere and the best views available.
The house was designed to take best advantage of the exceptional site. The building is a modern concrete block and plaster gabled open concept construction, providing a 70 foot long 12 foot wide verandah overlooking the yacht harbour from the brow of the hill.
On the main floor, there are two large bedrooms, both with ceiling fans (air conditioning really not needed). The master bedroom has a firm queen sized bed and includes a full ensuite bath with tub/shower, double sinks and heavy duty automatic washing machine.
Between the second bedroom (which has a queen size hybrid waterbed - seems somewhat like a regular bed) and the main entry, there is a second bathroom which also includes a shower and sink.
The third bedroom with queen size bed and bathroom including shower are in the lower level 'apartment'. All bedrooms have ceiling fans as does the main level kitchen. We find there is no real need for air conditioning that would isolate you from the natural beauty surrounding the house.
The main level kitchen-dining area is 9' by 23' with generous counter top area and cupboards. There is a small basic galley kitchen 8' x 8' in the lower level 'apartment'. Outdoor living is the norm and we find we usually dine on the verandah with the delightful ambience of the shimmering harbour or stunning sunsets. The property really is one of the most comfortable and romantic spots on the island.
The main level interior is about 1,380 sq. ft., with 950 sq. ft. of finished and tiled verandah, patio and deck space and a garage/workshop of 200 sq.ft.. On the lower level reached by full exterior stairways at each end of the main building are, the pump room of 80 sq. ft. at one end, then 3 water cisterns and at the other end, a 440 sq. ft. one bedroom apartment including kitchenette, bathroom with shower and living area looking out over a private 200 sq. ft. raised patio, to Port Elizabeth, Spring and St. Vincent.
Beside the upper patio, there is a 14'x 9' infinity edge pool with about 100 sq. ft. of stone surround for that lazy lounging in the sun or shade, your choice, with or without a nice cool drink, to take in the tropic gardens, mahogany grove or captivating Admiralty Bay view.
There is even an outdoor shower by the pool to rinse off the sand after those return trips from the beach or just to get a quick rinse down.
The main level central living room area has two adjacent sets of French glass paned doors opening to the covered verandah area offering a magnificent view over the harbour. The gable vault covers the whole living area offering a stunning sight on entry to the building through the main door from the driveway. It is designed to optimize air circulation throughout the building.
The roof beams, exposed from within, are varnished Trinidad teak showing dramatically and tastefully against white painted roof decking underlay.
The floors throughout the main level are tiled with reddish earthtone fine-finished Spanish tiles which also extend to cover all verandah, entry and patio surfaces except the stone lower level patio.
The lower apartment has a lovely pinkish ceramic tile floor. The roof edge around the entire building is trimmed with white painted gingerbread which was patterned after trim found on a home more than one hundred years old demolished at Princess Margaret beach during the 1980's.
The windows are enamelled aluminium frame single vertical sash and screen sets. (The lower level apartment has side sliding windows.) There are two double louvred door closets in each main level bedroom and a third in the guest room for linen storage. There is a large hall closet for cleaning materials and tool storage.
There is an extra large water tank system of about 40,000 US gallons. The water system is fully pressurized. The water heating system is a double panelled solar heater with 80 gallon insulated reservoir and pressure relief valve. There is a 300 gallon roof top emergency water reservoir in case of a central power failure.
There is a large load central electric power converter providing 120 volt 50 cycle for North American appliances throughout the building and garage along with the local 220 volt 50 cycle UK compatible system.
There is a new inground freeform infinity edge pool about 14' x 9' (4' deep) with nice outdoor shower and stone pool surround for lounging both in sun and shade just off the open patio at the west end of the building main level next to the mahogany grove. It is positioned so even apartment guests can use it as their own pool in privacy.
