"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. "

"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 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 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."
