Petit St. Vincent, or PSV, as it is often called, is one of the world's most enchanting hideaways, and one of the favourite Caribbean sailing escape. Over its varied terrain (113-acres) twenty-two private cottages are scattered some on hillsides, some set into the sides of cliffs, some right on the beach - all absolutely heavenly. For most people the appeal of PSV is what it "does not have"- no telephones or television, no air-conditioning, no casinos or cabarets. Not even room keys. When you want nothing so much as to be alone, you simply send up the red flag
on the bamboo pole outside your cottage and you are instantly furnished with that most valuable of commodities exclusive privacy. On the other hand, hoist a yellow flag and the staff are at your service, whether it's a picnic lunch served on the beach, or a night cap in your villa. There is plenty to keep the active people busy, and hammocks have been strategically placed all along the beaches for those who just want to unwind and relax. In the interest of guests' sought after privacy, access by non-guests is limited to the main building which houses the bar, restaurant and boutique. Dinner is by reservation only. Petit Saint Vincent is must for
a relaxing sailing holiday or a fantastic new year day in the amazing Caribbean.
