Cassava Guest Reviews

“A truly lovely holiday.
You have created a wonderful and very comfortable villa with superb staff and a truly relaxed and luxurious atmosphere. All six of us absolutely loved our stay there, and of course, Bequia is so special. Needless to say, the pool is a great addition. So thank you all your emails and guidance beforehand, all of which were very helpful. Thank you, thank you – we could not have been more pleased. It was all perfect.

“How heavenly is this? Here I am sitting watching the boats coming and going down below, contemplating a swim in the beautiful pool and listening to Tina clanking about in the kitchen! Thora and Tina have looked after us marvellously
I am very lucky indeed. I think the new bedroom/bathroom ‘up in the stars’ as my little granddaughter would say, is absolutely lovely. As is it all. And the most stunning sunset. We have had a heavenly stay and will be so sad to leave.”

“I just wanted to say Cassava House is beautiful and the new decking and pool area is incredible, it’s like being in a tree house. So peaceful.

Wow, what an amazing place! We LOVED our week at Cassava – a much anticipated holiday (with everything going on with covid) and it didn’t disappoint. We haven’t stopped smiling since we arrived – the photographs don’t do it justice. The pool is spectacular, the perfect place to soak up the rays and a short walk to the best beach on the island. We found the best rum punch from Joan and Lennox (Lion’s Den) on Princess Margaret’s bay and they cooked us a yummy lunch (one to check out).
Lucille was amazing- always on hand to help and answer our questions, book our PCR tests – call the airline_ the list goes on. Thank you for making our stay so great. Shout to Mr Browne and Adrian. We have fallen in love with Bequia and will be back! Thank you!”

“The Cassava house was a wonderful, relaxing and scenic place to stay. Lucille our host was more than accommodating to make sure everything was perfect during our visit. Thora the housekeeper did a fantastic job making our stay comfortable. We would highly recommend renting from Alexandra and staying at Cassava house.”

“We were lucky enough to enjoy a one week stay at the beautifully appointed Cassava House. The location on this hillside above the island’s nicest beach (Lower Bay) is ideal, also offering incredible panoramic ocean views from the gorgeous deck. We will definitely be back.”

“You have the most beautiful home – All our guests loved it and our holiday has made a very memorable 70th birthday for my husband. We loved the proximity to the sea and enjoyed lots of swimming. Lucille and Torah have been wonderful – both so kind and helpful.”

“We loved Bequia and enjoyed the exceptional location of your villa above Lower Bay. I want to give a big endorsement to Noel from Noel Taxi. He drove us to/from dinner every evening and provided exceptional on-time service. We recommend him without reservation. We also loved the newest restaurant “Open Deck” for the quality of food and views. We also appreciated your recommendations for Barbados where we stayed for 3 nights at the end of our holiday…we hope to visit Bequia again. “

“We always hire a villa. Usually, it’s Cassava, conceived by Dehen with a sumptuous terrace overlooking Lower Bay that’s big enough for parties. Here, we read, play games, and watch boats glide past. “

“Thank you for your prompt response and information. We absolutely loved staying at Cassava. In fact we had four dinner parties in one week! We found Patrick to be extraordinarily responsive and helpful. He is bright and charming, and he demonstrated above-average judgment when interacting with all sorts of different personalities and perspectives during the week. As a business person, I am amazed that you have been able to retain him to provide support and assistance to Cassava guests. It is a fabulous gift to your visitors! His presence allowed the Grenadines Partnership Fund to accomplish much more than we had expected to — and this translated to more progress on charitable projects to benefit Bequia. So thank you for having the foresight to staff Cassava in this way. I look forward to returning next spring — This fall, another group will do the site visits in SVG”

“My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Cassava. So much so that we are interested in booking the house again. Let me know and thank you again for allowing us the opportunity to stay at Cassava!”

“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 a wonderful reprieve after days out enjoying the island, luxurious yet felt like our home instead of a guest house. I would highly recommend it to anybody who is looking for a more intimate experience of the island.”

“A beautiful house, Cassava exceeded all of our expectations. The area in which Cassava is situated ( a 5-minute walk to the beach) allowed us to take full advantage of the natural features of Bequia, to create an extremely memorable holiday experience. The villa itself is amazing, allowing me and my family to just completely relax after an active day exploring the many attractions that Bequia has to offer. If it is a relaxed holiday that you are looking for, very few accommodations can compare!. One of the key features that truly made our holiday such a great experience would be the staff at Cassava. Patrick, who manages the villa and acted as our chef extraordinaire during our stay, not only was extremely helpful during our stay but was also very flexible with allowing us to invite guests around to the villa during our stay to eat. The waitress Patrice also added that little something extra that really rounded off the whole experience. All in all, our stay at Cassava was incredible, and i would highly recommend it to anybody looking for an excellent holiday experience!”

“This villa is everything the description says and more. Possibly the most relaxing vacation my husband & I have ever taken. This was our first trip to Bequia, and loved the island and its people. This villa is super spacious with wonderful views, privacy and everything you need to enjoy your stay. Conveniently close to Lower Bay Beach (which we had many times to ourselves), and within walking distance to Port Elizabeth (if you are healthy). Part of the walk is along the beach and a stone wall walk by restaurants and shops. We rented a car, but not sure if we would again. Taxis are abundant, however, be ready for an open-air truck with a canopy. Patrick, the villa’s onsite manager and chef, is attentive, helpful, and an amazing chef. He cooked dinner for us 3 nights and they were all delicious. His wife, Miranda does the housecleaning, and she is sweet and the villa is spotless. Waking up to the ocean view in the master was amazing. There are so many seating areas that even if you had six staying you could have plenty of privacy or space to read, etc. All the baths are large and beautiful. Cannot say enough great things – cannot wait to go back and we will definitely rent this villa again. Alexandra (owner) was very prompt in responding throughout the rental process and is an excellent communicator. You will absolutely fall in love with villa and its location!”

“We cannot tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at Villa Cassava. Beautiful villa,

yard & view. Loved the island & the people. The most laid back vacation we have

ever had! Thanks for opening your home to us and thank you, Patrick, for your

attentiveness and wonderful dinners.”

“This is a truly lovely house (the photographs online can’t really do it justice) just a few steps up from the nicest beach in beautiful Bequia. We have stayed at quite a few places on this island and this is by far, the best of them, built by a very good architect who has worked extensively in Mustique. We had another good family (with 3 children aged 13,10 & 7) trip at Easter – though we didn’t do very much, which was probably mostly attributable to being very happy to just chill out. The chef and house manager Patrick and all the staff around the house were excellent and very friendly. It was such a treat to have the shopping and cooking done for us, and Patrick was very happy to fit in with all our requests, including a couple of nights when we had friends over for supper and he cooked for everyone. The owners have done a great job here – Cassava is as lovely inside as it is out; the views out over the bay are stunning, especially of course with a drink in hand at sunset! Lovely.”
