Lovely in all ways
Review Submitted: 05 April 2011
Date of Stay: February 2011
Our family of four, including our daughters (aged 14 and 11) traveled to Grenada for the first time from February 23 through March 2, 2011. We were delighted with our hosts, Lizzie and Elvis, our accomodations at Elliz, and with the island of Grenada.
From our first inquiry about Elliz, Lizzie was prompt, informative and courteous in her replies. She provided us with invaluable information and graciously offered to assist us with various arrangements (rental car, etc.). After a long day of travel, we appreciated being greeted by Elvis at the airport - his "tour" on our route to Elliz was quite helpful. The "welcome basket" containing goodies for our first night and morning in Grenada was perfect.
Elliz is beautiful and tastefully decorated. We were impressed by the cleanliness, accuracy of the website description/photos, and the thoughtful details found throughout. It is well-appointed and has everything a vacationer could want (beach towels; soft pack cooler; mobile phone; maps; brochures; washing machine; cd's; games; etc.). We found the apartment to be spacious. Our daughters enjoyed having their own rooms and each commented on how elegant they were. A/C was offered, but we found the evening breeze was sufficient. We spent a great deal of time on the verandah, enjoying the spectacular view.
We found Elliz to be perfectly situated for our needs - a residential area, away from the hustle and bustle, yet conveniently located to St George's; restaurants; groceries; beaches; historical sites; the open market; and shopping. The main roads are easily accessible from Elliz, making exploring the island, and all it has to offer, a treat. We rented a car rather than walking (downhill into town and uphill on the way home) or taking the buses, which was perfect for our needs as we were out and about for extended periods during the day.
Lizzie and Elvis were exceptional hosts. They kindly made themselves available to answer any questions we had, to provide recommendations, and to offer suggestions for sites to see. It was a pleasure to be in their company, and we especially enjoyed learning about Grenadian culture, their journey to Grenada, and the history of the apartment. While they were generous with their time, they also allowed us our privacy and independence - they were terrific neighbors!
We wholeheartedly recommend Elliz and hope to return one day. Lizzie and Elvis are lovely, and Elliz is a treasure!
