Very clean and roomy one bedroom apartment in a great beachfront location overlooking the lovely Tyrrel Bay, close to all of the restaurants, bars and shops. Only things lacking are a coffee maker and toaster.
Newly equipped very clean apartment for 2. A lovely balcony with great views overlooking the beach and bay. Well located, peaceful and quiet but very near local bars and a couple eating places. Good modern supermarket just up the road. Frequent buses to all parts of the island . Nothing negative to say we had a wonderful stay anf hope to visit again.
check this place first when visiting Carriacou. Lerone and Kathleen couldnt be more helpful. We had a great visit and a wonderful beach side room. also, if you need a car, talk to Lerone or Kathleen first.
Perfect location right across from the beach and anchorage. Supermarket and restaurants within walking distance. We did 10 dives in 3 days at Arawak Divers and it is less than a 3 minute walk. Spectacular sunsets. Eggs for sale in the back and buses were easy to come by. We did miss having a coffee pot but we took a walk down the road every morning and had some so it wasn’t a deal breaker. Would definitely stay here again! Thank you for the ride from the ferry! Loved Carriacou and so lucky we found John’s place! Thank you!!
I stayed at the Oyster Shell, on the island of Carriacou very beautiful location, quiet and beach is at your doorstep. Locals are very nice and friendly. Oyster Shell is that pearl of Carriacou, so I would highly recommend anyone visiting to stay at the Oyster Shell.
There are loads of cliche quotes I could use about this holiday, so I will be to the point.
John Gabriel who owns this property is charm personified, he was there to meet us at the ferry port in Hillsborough and took us to the apartment.
Fully equipped with all appliances you could wish for, the apartment is so well designed using space so cleverly.
Tyrell bay is a beautiful area, sea is warm as you would expect - people are friendly and will always say hello or wave, if you want a busy night life - sorry you will be disappointed.
From the first day to the last my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time here.
We have stayed on a lot of Caribbean islands and this is the safest we have felt.
You must try the eggs & Chicken sold at the property, also supermarkets are local for other necessities, also try the local produce from Rufus & Venus - just a point to note please do not be concerned if you see the Police around the property they are only collecting their eggs as a lot of people do during the day.
John is so well know on Carriacou as Baba, and you will see him around the area most days.
He kindly took us out to see around the island to some interesting places, you can get around easily by bus (number 10 & 11) - there is an ATM at the supermarket which is a couple of minutes away.
I could go on and on about the great holiday you will have if you choose to book this apartment.
One final point the island has 2 seasons Jan to June (dry) & July (wet) to December (wet) if it does rain in the dry season as it did for us it lasts a few minutes and the sun comes out again - our time was hot hot hot.
On a personal note: Thanks John (Baba) for a great holiday a real pleasure to meet you, looking forward to seeing you again soon.
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
