This really is a jewel in the Caribbean. It is an extremely private, yet accessible property to just about anywhere you want to be on the island. If it’s a quiet bay without anyone except for the occasional tropical creature, or a journey into the interior, this is the place to stay at. There are three lovely unspoilt beaches in the area that you’ll have to yourselves all within walking distance of this property.
We spent 9 days in this delightful house, which has breathtaking sea views from the owner’s lovely well-stocked garden. It was fun trying to identify which tree and plant was what. If you are birdlife fans, then this spot is awash of many tropical birds. Beautiful tiny hummingbirds fly in and out of the frangipani, as do minor birds, mocking birds, robins and the rare and endangered Grenadian doves come to this property every evening to feed.
It is very well equipped and well stocked. You have everything you need to rustle up a meal or two, particularly since the property manager organises some shopping before you arrive! We were extremely comfortable, and well looked after by the housekeeper.
The design of the house is unique, full of light, sun and air with an enclosed pool, which is open to the stars if you fancy a very private midnight swim or that sought after all over tan!!! Or a shady and cool corner from the heat of the tropical sun. Wi-fi is available, as well as cable TV and a DVD player. All you really need is your beach towel and sarong.
If you’re looking for the world famous Grand Anse beach as well as many other small coves, these are easily reached by hired car or public transport. St Georges is only 15 mins away. The area is well served by restaurants from simple pizza places to Gary Rhodes at The Calabash, a couple of minutes down the road.
If you want a relaxing holiday where you can suit yourself then this could well be the place for you. Would I recommend this holiday rental to my best friend? Absolutely!
