As two men vacationing in the Caribbean, a warm welcome isn't always guaranteed. However, any concerns we had were allayed with some reassurance from Zofia, the owner. She was also generally helpful, giving useful tips on eating out, things to do, as well as arranging for us to have some basic provisions in the villa on our arrival. Jerry also called after we arrived to make sure that all was well with us.
On arrival at the villa we were met by Valerie, the manager. She was charming and delightful. We knew instantly that we were going to have a wonderful stay at the villa. She showed us around the property and explained exactly what she thought we should know regarding the overall operation of things. We settled in and immediately felt at home. The next day Valerie called to check on us and we arranged to have her shop and prepare dinner for us for a night later in the week. We invited her to join us for dinner and she accepted our invitation. What a marvelous evening we had! She cooked us a delicious local meal and regaled us with stories about the island.
The view of the sea from the Blue Room was spectacular. We had breakfast each morning on the veranda and loved the swishing of the trees around the house, accompanied by the sound of mangoes dropping on the roof as we sipped our coffee (grab one before the birds do).
Another daily ritual was drinks by the pool in the evening before we went to dinner. Staring at the sea, the lovely plants and flowers that surrounded the property helped to create the kind of vacation that we all dream of having in the tropics.
Heron's Flight is appropriately named. We enjoyed the heron flying by and it's beauty was only surpassed by our tranquil state of mind which was acquired during our stay.
Restaurants were easily accessible and quite good but, do give Patrick's a miss. If you are seeking good Grenadian food - BB's Crabback down by the Carenage is far more likely to please. A rental car is a definite must although driving at night takes a little getting used to. If something more upscale appeals, then Le Phare Bleu is excellent for great food (loved the locally made goats cheese salad) and you can't fail to enjoy a coffee after your meal served on the top deck in the balmy breeze while admiring the stars.
Grenada is now at the top of our list of island spots having nudged Barbados into second place. This means a revisit soon to Grenada and this also means a revisit to Heron's Flight.
