Amazing location on the beach, surrounded by lots of local shops, dive spot and restaurants. Space was clean, comfortable and had a fully equipped kitchen. Very nice and helpful owner. Recommended to anyone new to the island
This simple accommodation has all you need for a relaxed stay on this beautiful, friendly island. The apartment is excellently located for the bars, restaurants and shops on offer in Tyrell Bay and the sea is on your doorstep for a cooling swim in turquoise waters. Sunsets can be viewed every night from the balcony as you sip your sundowner! Don't expect bright lights, fancy restaurants or a wide variety of water sports - if that is what you want then stay on Grenada. But a stay on Carriacou will give you a taste of the real Caribbean with some of the friendliest people you could wish to meet. Enjoy hunting around the local supermarkets to collect ingredients you need to self cater - eggs and chickens are available immediately behind the apartment. If you fancy a treat I can thoroughly recommend Bogles Roundhouse for a lovely meal - if you do not have your own transport you can get a taxi over to it. Local buses pass by regularly to take you into Hillsborough. For local life and and a laugh go down to Levi's (next to the Lambi Queen) but be very wary of the Jack Iron if you want to remember your evening!! Oh and keep an eye out for the fire flies which sparkle in the trees. A truly wonderful and unique place - we will be back.
While the photos might show this place as a little basic, what it lacks in a few amenities it more than makes up for in location.
There is everything you need for self catering and we cooked many times during our three weeks here.
The views from the balcony, with a free spectacular sunset almost every night, are truly wonderful.
Everyone who passes, or infrequently arrives to buy eggs or frozen chickens from the small business behind will wave and say hello to you if you are sitting out on the balcony.
The enticing sea just across the very quiet road is a lovely to swim in as it looks.
So if you fancy a slice a island life and to unwind in a stress free way this will be perfect for you and very hard to beat for good value.
