I don't normally write reviews but feel Cassava and its owner deserve one. We spent 10 days at Cassava in early March - we know Bequia and love it, and decided we wanted to stay in a house we had heard so much about and...More

The house was so beautiful, located just above lower bay. We had a fantastic time, and were very well looked after by Chef and manager Patrick Hepburn. Cassava house was wonderful reprieve after days out enjoying the island, luxurious yet felt like our home instead...More

About the neighbourhood
There is a tennis court at the Gingerbread Hotel where after a game Maranne's Ice Cream Parlour on the sea front has to be visited for a cool down.

Snorkel along the rocks, visit the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary in Park Bay, the Whaling Museum, the Hamilton Fort, St Vincent Carnival during the first week of July. Have lunch at Sugar Reef on the Atlantic side or take a water taxi across to Isle de Quatre for a barbecue on a deserted island.
Getting around
It is easy just to call a taxi - they are not expensive and we have several numbers and all the drivers on Bequia are friendly and swift to come. There is a dollar van from the top of Lower Bay road. And there is the option of hiring a jeep for your stay or just for a few days - around USD 50 a day.

A beautiful walkway has been built following the water's edge, allowing you to walk from the Lower Bay headland over onto Princess Margaret Beach, past Jack's Bar and around the cliff edge along the ocean side which arrives at the Belmont walkway along the harbour front into Port Elizabeth, the main harbour town.
