Helianthus, Mount Pleasant, Bequia, St Vincent and the Grenadines
As the ex Prime Minister's home, Helianthus enjoys a unique privacy and position overlooking the sunflower plantations after which it has been named. Nestled luxuriously in 9 acres of mature cedars, mahogany & fruit trees and located at Mount Pleasant, this fabulous Bequia vacation base boasts breathtaking scenery, with an uninterrupted view of the Caribbean Sea. The seclusion of this villa offers simply the sounds of the tropical breezes blowing through the trees, the local birds in the established gardens that surround this stunning classical villa and the distant sounds of the surf below. Helianthus is just a 10 minute drive away from two of Bequia's most beautiful beaches, Princess Margaret Beach and Lower Bay Beach. You can take a dip, top up your tan or make the most of the great snorkeling spots on Lower Bay.
Designed by the renowned Italian architect Luigi Vietti of Costa Smeralda fame, its interior was decorated by French and Italian designers in a Caribbean ambience. Helianthus is actually the Latin term for sunflower. A lovely gazebo nestled amidst the tropical fruit trees in the garden offers and ideal place to get away and read or just appreciate the peace and quiet.
This villa has an enviable infinity pool, with amazing views of the Southern Grenadines. From Helianthus you can look out at Mustique, Balliceaux, and Battowia. Beside the pool, there is a central flower garden, courtyard and wide terraces cooled by the sea breezes and offering a unique vantage point for you and your guests to enjoy breathtaking views over the Sunflower plantations and beaches below. There are sumptuous sun loungers available for you to stretch out and enjoy the tropical sun whilst the large veranda is spacious and cool, and from here you can sit and take in the ex-Prime Ministers favourite views of the island. There are benches that look out onto the sea, and there is also a lovely outside dining area.
The living room is cool and beautifully furnished by the Italian and French interior designers who managed to mix their continental style with a Caribbean finish. There is satellite tv and video, dvd, internet, telephone and fax providing all the modern amenities connecting you to the rest of the world whilst this beautiful villa preserves your privacy and escape. The expansive luxurious white sofas stretch around the living room for your total relaxation whilst the tall vaulted ceilings maintain a cool and serene atmosphere.
Under construction currently is an air conditioned media suite featuring a Bose sound system and comfortable relaxed seating, an ideal environment for guests to chill out during the occasional tropical downpour.
The real benefit of this villa is the excellent service the staff provide as part of your holiday with a team of house staff including a cook, maid, launderess, driver and gardeners.
