Perfect for beach lovers. Located within close walking distance of one of the most beautiful, unspoilt beaches in the Caribbean - Princess Margaret. Best on the island for swimming and snorkelling.

Shared pool - perfect spot for watching the sun go down.

Vehicle hire is not essential - there is a beautiful cliff-side trail into the Harbour (Port Elizabeth) and over to Lower Bay.

Located at Princess Margaret Beach on Bequia, considered one of the most beautiful beaches in The World. Walk to and from the beach and Jack's Bar - an exceptional Caribbean beach bar & restaurant - in your swim gear.

Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in January 2018

This was our 13th trip to Bequia. In previous years, we had stayed at the Frangipani, but decided to try something different. We spent 9 nights at the Shade of Blues Apartment and totally enjoyed the experience. We would certainly consider staying there again. The apartment itself is located on the second floor and has a separate entrance, large kitchen, two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, an outdoor shower and a large outdoor balcony with a stunning view overlooking Princess Margaret Beach and Bay. Incredible care has gone into the design of the apartment and choice of furnishings. The kitchen is very well-equipped. Access to the small downstairs swimming pool and an adjoining patio, as well as to the internet, is provided by the owners.

It is hot at night, but if you run the air conditioner for a short period of time and then open up the shutters, this seems to work fine (the owners ask that you not use the air conditioner extensively). LIke most places in Bequia...

Management response:

Thanks for this review. Glad you had a great time staying at Princess Margaret. Will look forward to hosting you again. (The 180 steps are only if you are coming up from Jack's Bar!)

Stayed 2 weeks in October and had a lovely time. Views are fantastic and the pool was a welcome cool down after the climb from the beach!
It's really a great spot to stay just above princess margarets beach and just behind jacks bar. Unfortunately due to recent storms, the Belmont walkway was broken and jacks bar was undergoing repairs, but what can you do about that? Just made us a bit more adventurous wading through the pristine sea to get to the fabulous plantation resort (great pizzas and lovely staff)
Use Julian, one of the local taxi drivers -very knowledgable and friendly and is very experienced at getting right up the driveway- very impressive!! His wife, Cass is the housekeeper and is lovely!!
The only thing I would prefer is aircon as we couldn't leave doors etc open as mosquitoes loved us.
The grounds man, ottley is really helpful too. Thank you all for making our stay on bequia great!!

About the neighbourhood
A small community of luxury villas. Located close to Princess Margaret Beach.

Peaceful at night, except Tuesday when it is Jack's party night (until midnight).
Getting around
We do not recommend vehicle hire for our guests, but do offer a private car park if needs must. Bequia is small - it is easy for fit folks to walk almost everywhere from A Shade of Blues - but bear in mind the island is hilly.

Taxis are inexpensive for night time outings and our water taxis offer a magical experience across the bay.

There is a cliff-side trail from Princess Margaret to Port Elizabeth and over to Lower Bay. Sensible shoes needed.
Car not needed
How to get there
