Our stay in Carriacou was great. Becca's cottage is wonderful. She met us at the dock when we got off the ferry, helped us arrange our car rental, showed us around town, and then helped us find the cottage. The cottage itself is perfect and incredible, it has everything you need. Becca provides you with a local cell phone, which was very handy and helpful. The bed is quite comfortable. The porch is amazing, and the view from the porch is incredible. Very relaxing. Becca even brought us delicious homemade muffins! We definitely plan on returning to Carriacou, and will certainly be staying at the cottage when we return.
Love the spot and thoughtfulness of the hosts, every detail considered
Nestled near the top of a well secluded valley, with beautiful views to the coast and beyond to the islands
Macaws and iguanas are great co-hosts too
Carriacou human residents are kind and friendly, casual and interesting
Having stayed in a big variety of accommodations throughout the world, this little gem-beach cottage provides a unique and amazing experience
...and hopefully it will be available the next time we'd like to visit!
Though Geoff and I had seen photos of the cottage on the website, my breath was taken away when I actually saw it in its surroundings! It was absolutely perfect for us - quiet (no sound or sight of traffic), airy (actually quite windy when we were there!), just the right size, and with everything we needed for a restful holiday. Beautifully designed and decorated. The solar-heated water was hot enough for a shower midday (daring, being in the open, but secluded). I was impressed by rainwater being the source for cooking and drinking.
Our hosts were most helpful - just right - friendly without being intrusive.
I loved seeing the sun rise over the perfect view - an opening in the thick forest down to the beach and sea, with other islands in the distance. A week was not long enough!
Belair Cottage was in a beautiful location high up on Carriacou. The views off the balcony were amazing, and the cottage itself had all the amenities one would need. Becca and Michael were also very gracious and informative hosts. I highly recommend staying here, you won't be disappointed!
The cottage in Bel-Air was the perfect escape for a Caribbean Thanksgiving! The views out from the porch and even inside are the stuff of postcards! The attention to detail in every corner of the building really shows - it's a perfect little cottage. The breezes from the trade winds always keep the cottage cool. The abundance of limes on the tree right outside the door made for delicious daily limeade. Really can't say enough good things about the cottage, and Michael and Becca are the most gracious hosts. Everything that came out of the kitchen was so delicious! Thank you so much for the wonderful vacation!
Carriacou has a character all its own, and Belair Cottage gives you the best of both worlds: easy access to the main town of Hillsborough (need to rent a car) PLUS total seclusion in an adorable cottage with a breathtaking view toward Petit Martinique and the Grenadines. Hostess Becca is knowledgeable, connected, and helpful without being intrusive. What a great experience.
Belair Garden Cottage was a wonderful, private cottage. Becca seemed to have thought of all the little details to make our stay memorable, even a local phone to use while you are on the island. She had arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the ferry, and when we arrived at the cottage, she greeted us with wonderful muffins in hand. We also ordered bread, which Becca makes fresh upon request. Yummm.
Every morning we would sit on the deck enjoying our coffee and just soak in all the spectacular views.
We also had a taxi arranged for us on our last day to take us back to the ferry.
I hope we will be able to get back to Carriacou at some time, and we would definitely stay at Belair Garden Cottage again.
