We stumbled upon this lovely place and simply couldn't leave! We had originally planned on three days and ended up staying for nine. We literally had to tear ourselves away. Sharon and Lennie (the owners) were such wonderful hosts I think I just have to go back. Everything was so laid back and my cousin and I felt totally at home. The rooms were spotlessly clean and quiet. The beds are really lovely and comfortable!
The garden was a great place to sit and have a drink while watching the sunset. We also had a wonderful dinner, prepared for us by Sharon's cook, in Lennie's gorgeous garden. The other guests were so friendly - always ready for a chat and ready to share stories of their travel around the island.
The beach is right there! Away from the multitudes that arrived at Grand Anse from their cruise ships but close enough to walk to the restaurant down the beach near the spice market. Great food and ambiance sitting at a table on the beach and the lobster pancakes are very good.
Getting around the island is a breeze. The local buses are fast and cheap - $2.50 EC to get into St George and $5.00 EC to get to Grand Etang. No need to run for the bus they'll wait for you and back up, or down the hill a bit, if they see you coming!
If you want a special golf lesson, look for Sam Francis - you will probably find him next door at Jenny's place. Fantastic guy and a great lesson for only $50 US. A bargain I think!
The best part about Grenada is the people - so kind, generous and honest. You will love the place as much as we did.
