Burke House is a beautiful and fully restored hideaway gem located on a ridge 100 feet above sea level on the island of Bequia. It overlooks the Caribbean Sea to the north and the south. It is a adjacent to the white sand of the beautifully secluded Moon hole beach and is above some of the best diving in the islands.
One awakes to the music of mockingbirds and the Bequia Black Birds singing, “Bequia Sweet Sweet Sweet” – an ideal place for those of us who are at one with nature and a wonderful place for swimming, hiking, reading and bird watching. (Frigate Bird, Booby, Mockingbird, Heron, Osprey, Tropic Bird and many others.)
The house has two large bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king-size four poster bed and the second bedroom has a large queen-sized bed. Both bedrooms have private bathrooms with hot showers, toilets and wash basins. The living and dining areas have beautiful views of the island of Saint Vincent in addition to about twenty of the Grenadine islands. Here you can sit and watch the sailing yachts passing by. There are spectacular views looking both north and south.
Burke House offers 110V electricity (solar) throughout the house and solar heated hot water. We are a low impact villa, an ecofriendly house. As an alternative to the solar electricity- lamps, lanterns and candles are available to create a very romantic ambiance.
Daily maid service is included so all of the cooking and cleaning is someone else’s duty. The secluded Moon hole beach is just two minutes’ walk away, ideal for swimming. Always popular is a moonlit beach barbecue. Your cook will take care of the food preparation and dishes. You just have to turn up and enjoy!!
Get away from the hustle and fast pace of modern life and get back to nature in our beautiful Caribbean home. Read, relax, swim, let someone else take care of the household chores. There is nothing more refreshing than a break. Come and recharge your batteries in this beautiful home. Its garden is mature with many fruit and flowering trees. The landscaping was done also in 2007 by local landscape artist known as ‘Ras John.’ It has recently been outfitted with air conditioning units in every room, including the master bathroom.
The master bedroom has a panoramic view of the Grenadines, as does the living room. The house was redesigned to allow for views only of the Caribbean Sea and neighboring islands to be maximized from many viewpoints inside the house.
The feeling created by the architect is of proximity to the ocean, even though the house is very high above sea level. It is designed to create a sense of closeness to the sea and to be integrated into its lush gardens.
