Tatou House really is as nice as it seems in the pictures. The home, the pool, the garden, and the view were quite lovely and perfect for a quiet, secluded vacation.
Vikki and Victor were very responsive to our inquires. They put us in touch with Linnette, the property manager, who took good are of us in Grenada. We especially appreciated being met at the airport and driven to the property, where our rental car was waiting for us. The recently installed air-conditioner in the bedroom was a bonus.
Full disclosure, Vikki and Victor are friends of mine. I spent two weeks visiting, in need of sun and swimming - which i did to my heart's content. At the house, you can stay all day in the breezes, dip in the pool and watch the pelicans play. Or take a morning constitutional swim down at the beach just 2 minutes away. There are too many gorgeous beaches to count, and if you're tired of that, just go on one of the local hikes into the interior (called a "hash") or visit some of the plantation ruins around the island. Grenville is the local town, and you can get whatever you want. The kitchen is ready for cooking, but you can also just pop down to the nearby restaurant if you're feeling lazy. You'll want a car, but you don't have to have one. I could easily plant at Vikki and Victor's, have someone deliver food, and never leave. I've traveled around the world, and if you're up for something new, friendly people, a stunning location, and a feeling of welcome, this is the place.
Tatou House is perfectly located on a bluff overlooking 2 bays- offering spectacular Ocean views and surrounded by pristine, untouched vegetation, and only a short walk to what seems at times as your own private beach. We even had the luxury of picking multiple varieties of local fruit, right off the many fruit trees surrounding the property.
The accommodations were beyond adequate, extremely comfortable, well maintained, and very suitable for both couples and families alike. Loved the design of the house - provided an easy transition from outdoors to inside and vice versa.
Finding and venturing out to local attractions and restaurants was made very easy given the excellent advice and help from the owner Vikki J- very thankful to her for going the extra mile to have everything from car rental to immigration information, and arrangement for welcome meal to be prepared by the Joann (housekeeper). The only problem with our stay is that there wasn't enough time.
If you're looking for a little slice of paradise, this is it! Can't wait to go back.
The views....The views... The views. Tatou house is perfectly situated on a hill between two coves which offer views of the ocean that will never grow old... you can simply get lost in time. The house itself not only meets but exceeds all your needs. Tatou House is extremely family friendly, the pool and the fully functional kitchen allows for that "home away from home" experience. It's location provides all the privacy you can want for a peaceful and tranquil vacation. Relaxing on the lawn as the sun is setting is truly breathtaking. I hadn't even left and was already planning my return with more family members.
We have had an amazing holiday in your fantastic home.
We were looking for somewhere to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary and don’t think we could have chosen anywhere more perfect.
The peace, tranquility and seclusion were just what we were looking for, we felt totally refreshed and relaxed and were ready to go home at the end of our stay.
There isn’t anything we would change and loved the design and style of the house, We would love to come back some time.
We have traveled to many places and like to explore the area and meet the people. This house was the perfect place to do that and enjoy comfort in a beautiful setting. The owners provided information so that we could locate places to stop when travelling around this beautiful island. The kitchen is well equipped and we enjoyed eating the fresh fish, squeezing fresh juice, making fruit smoothies and savoring the other fresh food. We easily found someone to cut coconuts and fill our bottle with coconut water. The views from the house are so beautiful and tranquil. While at the house, we spent most of our time on the comfortable outdoor furniture near the pool that is not pictured here. The gardens were also lovely and there is an outdoor shower. Otherwise, the photos represent the house.The beds are very comfortable and the area is very quiet. The staff are also very helpful. The beach is lovely and on the weekend you will see locals enjoying themselves. We found the people in Grenada friendly. Bruno's restaurant is close and also has great views and has a bar. We loved this house and hope to return.
Myself, husband and two boys had the most wonderful stay at Tatou House! The house was very well equipped had everything you could possibly need. All of the staff were so helpful if we had any questions or needed anything. It was very convenient to walk down to Bruno's restaurant if we didn't feel like cooking. He and his staff cooked up a wonderful lobster dinner as well as great salads and fries we would always get at lunch. Our mornings began hiking and exploring the headlands on either side of our location. We loved swimming at the beach and our boys loved having the convenience of the lovely swimming pool if we weren't at the beach or out and about. A thrilling highlight was swimming at Mt. Carmel waterfall which was very close to the house. We can't wait to come back!
