Petit St. Vincent (PSV)

PSV (VHF:16, closed July/October) was probably the first Caribbean boutique hotel. It is a quiet and exclusive resort, where the guests get pampered in secluded stone cottages. Each cottage has a flagpole that is used to summon room service, which soon appears in a Mini Moke. The hotel does well at top Caribbean rates, and is probably the Caribbean’s most successful small hotel.

It was built by the late Haze Richardson, who operated it from its inception until 2008. The island and resort were purchased in late 2010 by Phil Stephenson and Robin Patterson.

The island and resort were purchased in late 2010 by Phil Stephenson and Robin Patterson, and they recently sold it to Tanja Ellis, an American businesswoman. 

The main anchorage is shown on the chart. The current changes with the tide, and if the wind drops, yachts swing about. The reef off the dinghy dock extends farther than some think.

Mopion is a very popular daytime anchorage (see Water Sports).
