For the right sort of people these cottages and location can be a truly idyllic “get away from it all” type place. However, if you want a “destination resort” you could come unstuck. We had a fantastic couple of nights, where we had flown up from Grenada, stayed overnight, took the “Mostly Harmless” Boat trip out to Tobago Cays, then returned to Grenada the next day. Therefore whilst rating the Cottages highly, individual preferences must be taken into account before deciding if this is the place for you.
Blue cottage was nicely placed in the center of the plot. Very rustic, individual in design and fit out. The lack of aircon had been a worry, but even though it was very hot and humid when we stayed, there was a massive fan next to the bed, which with the aid of ear-plugs, provided a good night’s sleep.
Because of its rural location there is a lot of wildlife in and around the cottages. Watching a Praying Mantis hunt while taking a shower was a new one for me ! and Mrs BM did have to evict a massive Cane Toad from the toilet late one night, but we did not suffer any more mossie bites than we did at other places we stayed in Grenada. To be honest I did not see many mossie’s all through our holiday, but we did pick up several bites around our ankles, which I put down to Sand Fleas from walking on the beaches.
The landscaping is very attractive, with an interesting selection of trees and shrubs. We spent some very pleasant hours sitting on the Blue Cottage veranda, and on the communal deck, just Liming, and watching the boats go by. In fact Mrs BM rated the view from the deck, across to several other islands, the best view in Grenada.
For the right people, who know what they are looking for, these cottages can be a very special holiday.
