About us

We love Bequia!

We are Chris & Louise Smullen, a young (ish!) couple from the UK with a love & passion for beautiful Bequia. After travelling to more than 50 countries around the world (including more than a dozen Caribbean islands) our search for perfection was over when we first set foot on Bequia in 2015.

We have since realised our dream to live on the most beautiful island on earth.   After a character-building remodel & renovation of the entire property & grounds (which took over 14 months), we hosted our first guests in January 2019.  It's been so rewarding to meet wonderful, like-minded people from all over the world who have chosen to visit our little piece of paradise and provide such encouraging feedback and positive reviews!  As Chief Enthusiasts for Bequia, we are making it our mission to spread the word, share our passion and ensure that your stay on Bequia will create amazing memories that will last a lifetime! Please explore our website and do not hesitate to contact us about The Lookout and the island in general.

We know Bequia

Aside from owning The Lookout Villa, we also manage a villa rental company on the island called Blue Grenadines. This is part of a family business, established on Bequia for nearly 40 years. We have the contacts, expertise & essential tips to ensure your stay is both memorable and enjoyable – the trip of a lifetime is now within your grasp!

Blue Grenadines is a registered trademark based on Bequia in St. Vincent & the Grenadines and is owned by Old Fort Estates and Developments Ltd. Quirin Schaedle is the owner and, although born in Germany, has lived the vast majority of his life on Bequia. He has worked in real estate & villa management for many years, gaining an unsurpassed knowledge of the island and its people. Quirin’s family have been living on Bequia since the 1970’s and are based at The Old Fort www.theoldfort.com a historic hotel set high on the top of Mt.Pleasant offering panoramic views over the Grenadine islands that stretch south to the horizon. Quirin also owns & manages Real Grenadines www.realgrenadines.com, so if you fall in love with Bequia (as most people do!) he can assist with finding the perfect villa or patch of land to purchase – your very own slice of paradise!

We will go the extra mile for you!

Choose The Lookout as your base to stay on this beautiful island & then let us help you to relax and absorb everything Bequia, St.Vincent & the Grenadines has to offer.
