We had booked this family holiday for 6 of us after reading lovely review in this website. We knew that Grenada was beautiful and the people so friendly. But what we experiences blew us away.
Sterling customer service from the time of booking, to our eventual departure.

We were picked up at the airport by David, who is such a gentle soul with an engaging smile. We were welcomed by Thaneia, and what really impressed me was the way were were shown around our gorgeous two apartments Wren and Ramier which were linked so it felt like one huge open space. We were made to feel like this was our home away from home. There was also no pressure to fill in paperwork as one has to do when checking in to some hotels.

For my Mum who was recovering from knee surgery, the location of the apartments to the little gazebo was perfect as she could get there with her walker, on her own, sit and relax, looking out to the sea. She even managed to get into the water with our assistance.

The kitchen was fully equipped and we loved the fact that on arrival there was a jug of water already chilled and trays filled with ice cubes. We did most of our cooking but next time we will have some food prepared for us! Rooms are spacious, well decorated and so homely and so clean. Lots of clean towels available and especially beach towels!

Who needs a pool when this gorgeous beach is on your doorstep! We loved the fact that the beach is off the main tourist track, it really truly felt private and no hassle from beach hawkers. A portable icebox in the apartments made sure the boys took their beers down on the sand for truly relaxing time. Kayaking across the bay was lovely.

Prickly Bay Marina is on the other side of the bay and a short 7 min walk away. There is small supermarket here, where you can get bread, groceries and vegetables. The bar and restaurant here is really good where many ex-pats (british and american) hang out. The pizzas are amazing. And we even took part in the BINGO night where all the locals come to try their luck at winning the jackpot and several cheesy prizes. The atmosphere is truly energetic. Grenadians are so polite, have a great sense of humour and again so welcoming!

We have never experienced a self-catering holiday like this before. Lance aux Epines.....you have set the standard so high up there, thank you.

We will be back

What a charming, peaceful place to stay. LAE cottages were able to put up my entire family in four cottages and assist me with my wedding on their shaded beach. The staff are the friendliest on the island. They go beyond to help you with any need that might arise. I almost hate to write this and let out the best kept secret.

This is our third time staying in the Cottages - this time we were in Sandpiper, which is a two bedroom/two bath cottage. First, the scene is spectacular - looking out on Prickly Bay with it's own private beach is beautiful. The cottages are clean, well maintained and comfortable. We arrived to the island late in the evening, but prior to arrival ordered a food hamper, so we had some basic food items stocked in the refridgerator. The kitchen has all of the "basics" that you need to cook simple meals - they even offer to have someone cook for you (we've never requested this amenity, but it soulds great!) The staff is friendly and helpful. Wi-fi provided great reception and was very fast. The kids really enjoyed the game room for playing pool, foosball and watching TV. I'm already looking forward to our next visit. Thank you to Tim and his whole staff for another great stay.

We spent 3 nights here - Prickly Bay is idyllic and the views from our apartment (Wren) were spectacular. It is dry season, so the garden is not as verdant as it would be in the rainy season, but it was still beautiful, because the bouganvilla , oleander and allamander were all in bloom. Wi-fi service is reliable and fast, the kitchen is stocked with the stuff we needed , there are several restaurants within walking /driving distance, St. Georges is but a taxi ride away.

Room Tip: We stayed in the wren apartments which were spacious and airy

Our initial 4 days of our 2 week stay was in the Swallow Cottage and then we moved to the Kite apartment as availability dictated. Both were equally comfortable and spacious. The kitchens were well stocked with the tools you need to cook and serve a decent meal. I brought my own knives and didn't have to use the somewhat blunt instruments supplied. Only the bedrooms are AC'ed as it is not necessary in the other rooms with the constant sea breeze flowing through.

The grounds are immaculately maintained with plenty of trees to provide shade throughout the day making it ideal for reading and napping on their lounging chairs. Even though all beaches are public in Grenada, this particular stretch is as close to private as you’ll get. There are few people sharing this beach of fine sand and calm protected waters. I swallowed a bit of the salty stuff during my first morning when I fell asleep floating on my back.

All staff is very hospitable and service oriented. Any issue will be addressed quickly to the best of their ability. A special thanks to Eva, our housekeeper, who cooked us a delicious ‘oil down’, a Grenadian national dish as well as a couple of cakes that where accentuated with local flavours.

LAE Cottages is situated within walking distance of some good restaurants as well as easy access to shopping by bus or taxi. St. George’s is just a 15 minute ride by taxi.

Room Tip: Book early. Some of the regulars have their bookings made for years to come!

Greetings! Thank you for doing a double review of sorts, and providing us with feedback about both the cottage and the apartment you stayed in. Your positive rating was gratifying to see.
Maintaining a well stocked kitchen is important to us, as many of our guests like to do their own food preparation, or have food prepared for them by our staff. We've made note of the blunt knives and will look to put sharpeners into all of the kitchens in the very near future! I hope bringing your own knives was not an inconvenience.
Our friendly staff are a stellar team and make our carefully maintained facility truly shine. Thanks for noticing! We will relay your compliments to them and hope to see you again one day in the future.
Regards,
The Management
