Of all the many reasons you can pick to come to Grenada you can also add the Lance Aux Epines House to that list.
I’ll use all the typical clichés to extoll this villas virtue, but they are not undeserved.
Location. Just a short ride from the airport. Close to restaurants and grocery stores. Sitting high on the water’s edge overlooking Prickly Bay the view framed by the MASSIVE infinity pool is hard to beat. Sailboats, sunsets, and beaches are all within eyeshot.
Amenities. A/C in all the bedrooms. As much as people love to talk about island breezes, when we were there at the end of June I would have drowned in a pool of my own sweat if it weren’t for the bedroom air conditioning. Bedrooms had very comfortable beds. Showers had good water pressure. A pool table. I cook breakfast every morning and never needed something that wasn’t already in the kitchen. They even had SHARP knives. For anyone who’s ever rented a villa before you know what a rarity that is. The separate chest freezer was fantastic for keeping ice and chilling down the beers quickly. Great pool that’s good for everybody small and large. Kayaks and paddle-boards. A dock to hang out on. Although the walk up and down from the house is not for the weak. Very steep. Plenty of outside areas to sit or lay.
Staff. One of my fears when renting a villa with a staff is that I will find them too intrusive. The group I traveled with are extremely low maintenance and we really don’t look to be catered to on a high level. Now I’m not saying that they wouldn’t have catered to us on a high level if we had asked, I’m just saying that they were perfect for what we were looking for. We couldn’t have been more pleased with everyone who worked there. They truly work hard to keep the villa in great shape. Rooms and common areas were cleaned daily. The pool and grounds were in great shape. If you had a question they were always happy to help. A person in our group was celebrating a birthday while we were there, and the staff surprised her with a wonderful personalized chocolate cake with candles.
