Press Release - Buccament Bay

St Vincent and The Grenadines - Goes International
27 June 2008

St Vincent and the Grenadines is going international! Following a recent government press conference it has now being confirmed that work on the international airport has commenced following the delivery of the necessary heavy machinery and that it is anticipated that the new airport will open on time in 2011.

Dave Ames Marketing Director of Harlequin Property said, “Confirmation of the construction of the new international airport on St Vincent is the final piece in the jigsaw, in what has been a whirlwind rise to international awareness. Once an isolated chain of islands, St Vincent and the Grenadines are now one of the most talked about emerging markets to date and their presence within the Caribbean has undoubtedly been felt as they now start to rival their more well known and richer neighbours such as Barbados and Antigua.”

St Vincent and the Grenadines which used to be primarily recognised for its banana plantations has experienced a dramatic change of fortunes in recent years, with investors realising that this prime development land which is just 30 minutes flying time from Barbados and only 20 minutes from St Lucia offered extraordinary value for money. Now with a keen eye on tourism and the obvious financial rewards that are associated with increasing numbers of visitors the international airport will help springboard St Vincent and the Grenadines into a new era of prosperity, which shrewd international investors will also benefit from.

Harlequin Property is currently marketing their flagship development, Buccament Bay on St Vincent and the Grenadines. Situated on the West coast of the island just 15 minutes from the airport it offers a selection of studio, one and two bedroom apartments along with one and two bedroom cabanas and a selection of premier plantation houses set around a lagoon within its own private bay.

Each property comes fully furnished to the highest standards and facilities include swimming pools, gymnasium, full hotel facilities, spa, restaurants, bars, sports facilities, shops and water sports. In addition their will be a casino and a marina which will be home to a pirate ship (restaurant) which further highlights the fact that the blockbuster trilogy of Pirates of the Caribbean was filmed just a few miles away. (The pirate ship has been traditionally built in Indonesia and will shortly commence its maiden voyage).

Prices at Buccament bay start from just £120,000 and there is a 10% rental guarantee for two years followed by a 50% room share rate for the subsequent five years.
