Booked after reading these reviews. Cottage lived up to expectations. We stayed for 2 weeks in a cottage with separate bedroom, bathroom with hot shower, roomy lounge/kitchen and large balcony with views over the garden to the sea. Cottage was airy, mesh on windows, & mosquito net. No need for air-con. Fans were provided but we never needed to use them.
Karina, the owner, arranged taxis to and from the airport, and very reasonably priced car hire for us. She is friendly and helpful.
The cottages are situated between Grand Anse (beach) and St Georges. A short walk down a steep lane takes you to the main road where buses pass VERY frequently. Fare is 2.5EC. You can walk to the beach, to the north end of Grand Anse takes 15 to 20 minutes, but we preferred to take the bus, the beach by Umbrellas was our favorite spot. We enjoyed going in to St Georges and went in most days. The bus goes to the bus station where you can take buses all over the island. You really get the flavour of Grenada doing this.
We had a car for a few days to get to the places the bus couldn't reach, so we saw most of the island.
The cottages are not in the tourist/hotel area, but are surrounded by local houses complete with chickens, goats, dogs & cats. There are a couple of restaurants in walking distance, and Foodland supermarket is 10/15 mins walk away. We liked the restaurant at Port Louis Marina (Victory Bar), also the bakery just inside the marina was good for breakfast croissants, rolls, pies etc.
This was our first visit to Grenada and we loved it. Only downside are the mosquitos. We will be back.
