Photos and Description of this holiday apartment in Saint Andrew District - Two Bays Villa & Studios
Villa & 2 independent large Studios + infinity pool sleep 2 persons each
On a headland in a natural setting and with stunning views over ocean and beaches, Two Bays has an infinity swimming pool and sun terrace overlooking Crochu Bay and gardens.
Elegant, romantic and comfortable, Two Bays Villa has a 100 ft. long shaded terrace wrapping itself around the Villa with swing seats. Deep enough to enjoy shade and relax to enjoy the fabulous views even when dining. It is private and not overlooked.
The Villa bedroom has a King Size 4 poster bed with net and opens onto the veranda with two 9ft. wide folding doors. The large Villa sitting room with a fully equipped kitchen at one end also has two 9 ft. wide folding doors with adjustable wooden louvers opening onto the same veranda, giving outdoor living when inside the Villa.
The breeze off the sea is assisted by large ceiling fans and optional A/C in the bedroom when necessary. Lie in your 4 poster bed and look at your view in privacy!
The two large and separate Studios (which can be rented separately or joined in with the Villa) have shaded 19 ft. terraces which are not overlooked and either Queen and King size (or 2 single) 4 poster beds. There are ceiling fans and optional A/C for when the ocean breezes are not doing their job. Each Studio is fully set up for self-catering.
Each Studio has 9 ft. wide openings with folding wooden doors. From Two Bays terraces, views to Cabier beach, Cabier & Crochu Bays and ocean can be enjoyed from swing seats. Beautiful Cabier beach is 100 yards away.
Two Bays is run and fully serviced by Cabier Ocean Lodge, which has a terrace restaurant and bar overlooking the ocean and a massage facility. You have full use of their facilities.
For anyone interested in the night sky Cabier is a must. On a clear night with little ambient light, thousands of stars fold round and over the top of the promontory. Lie on your back and wonder at the canopy of stars that surround you. At certain times of year major planets can be easily picked out and craters on the moon are clearly visible at stages of its growth. Lucky to be there with a full moon? Walk on Cabier’s white sand beach at low tide and be followed by a moon shadow.
Cabier beach is stunningly beautiful. It is how you imagine a Caribbean beach to be but often is not. Normally with hardly anyone on it; save a few local people come at the weekend or on major holidays, you can often have it virtually to yourself. With an offshore reef to protect the bay and beach, other than at the highest of tides, the water is normally as calm as in our photos and as clear. Perfect for swimming, as an alternative to the pool, with some snorkelling around the inner reef. Cabier Ocean Lodge supply beach chairs.
The whole beach is cleaned by the tide and the sand is really firm with an easy walk in to the sea. There is nothing behind the beach other than fields and cows with cattle egrets on them; and a distant view to the rain forest.
There are donkey safaris and walks along the headlands to other bays and individual tours to local attractions organised by Cabier Ocean Lodge.

About Nick Hamilton
We are a late middle aged professional couple living in Central London in England.
We are property enthusiasts! We love restoring very old property that is run down and in need of alteration, rebuild, and refurbishment to a level of elegant comfort - it is a really enjoyable challenge for us. We have done this in London, and with holiday houses in France and the Canaries (visit www.hamiltonholidayhouses.com),
Two Bays at Cabier presented us with a unique challenge. We had never ever built from scratch before on what was very much a greenfield site!
We put all our experience of property rebuilding and renovation, and from what we had seen and experienced elsewhere in the world, into the design of the Villa and the two separate Studios.
Everything from wide opening folding doors to remove the barrier of outside/inside (Vietnam), to being able to lie in your four poster bed naked and enjoy the view (!), with deep covered verandas that you can relax on if you want some shade (Tobago) to name a couple.
We loved building Two Bays in such a special place and visit twice a year. When we are not there - it is available to you.
Nick Hamilton purchased this apartment in 2010
Why Nick Hamilton chose Saint Andrew District
We have travelled extensively over the years, but for the Caribbean we have always come back to Grenada as our favourite Caribbean island. Why? Because the island is so beautiful and welcoming as well as relaxed with old world manners.
We have tried hard to find somewhere else to beat it since we both first visited. Coincidentally both separately - me hitching boats up the Caribbean travelling back from South America and my wife as a student in the USA – both in the late 60s / early 70s.
We both fell in love with the island and its people and returned many times since.
Why did we build Two Bays at Cabier?
We stayed at Cabier the first time in 2008 purely by chance. We were staggered how natural and beautiful it is when we woke up on the first morning and looked across Cabier bay.
A couple of days later floating in the water off Cabier beach my wife said - looking back at the promontory on which Two Bays now stands - 'if I was going to build anywhere in the world it would be there, but only if it would be looked after by Cabier Ocean Lodge and be attached to the hotel'.
At breakfast Cabier's hotel book revealed a plot for sale ...... the rest is history. Construction started in April 2009 and our first visitors arrived January 2010. Building and fitting out nearly 4000 miles away - that is whole other story! We added the infinity pool overlooking Crochu Bay in 2011.
We built Two Bays because we love beautiful Cabier, its sense of tranquillity, the natural environment and an amazing safe beach protected by the offshore reef with warm silky water and firm sand. All this with a warm welcome at Cabier Ocean Lodge (you become part of the 'Cabier family' during your stay) plus a bar and restaurant overlooking the ocean on your doorstep, it is a wonderful combination for a really relaxing holiday.
Do come and experience the magic, natural beauty and tranquillity of Cabier for yourself - we would like to share it with you!
What makes this apartment unique
We built Two Bays to be somewhere which would link to the natural environment as much as possible but still give those staying elegant comfort.
Both Villa and the Two Studios have their own deep shaded verandas which are private. The swing seats allow you to relax and gently rock to and fro looking at the stunning views from the elevated position on the promontory between Cabier and Crochu Bays.
If you want to sit inside then the 9ft wide opening folding doors allow you to be connected to the outside while inside. The hardwood doors have wooden adjustable louvers so that you can catch the breezes that are a feature of Cabier and Two Bays position. There are large ceiling fans and high ceilings to maximise the cooling comfort with A/C in the bedrooms if really needed.
The four poster beds are fully netted so the natural breezes can be enjoyed at night. All furniture and doors /windows are in sustainable hardwood.
The Villa and the two separate Studios each sleep two persons and are completely independent, but can be joined together for parties of 3 - 6 persons.
The infinity pool overlooking Crochu Bay and the ocean is completely private to Two Bays and has a sun terrace. Combined with Cabier beach, the pool and garden gives wonderful choices of what to do not very much on a very relaxed slow day!
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful time at Two Bays and Cabier. Cabier itself was delightful.
We loved spending time with Bruno and Iris who did everything they could and more to make our stay exceptional. The taxi pickup was waiting for our flight and got us to Cabier by 8:30 or so. The bumpy road to Cabier in the dark made us a little apprehensive but I know there isn't anything you can do about that.
The villa itself was clean and we arrived to find dinner,wine and beer waiting for us in the fridge. The rest of our week went by too fast. Bruno took us on one of the tours inspite of having a sprained ankle. We loved having him as our tour guide. We also enjoyed breakfast and dinner at Cabier almost everyday. Iris was extremely efficient and made all the arrangements we needed-booking our rainforest tour with pick up from Cabier, recommending a restaurant at St. George and arranging all our transportation. She even gave us sunscreen which we had forgotten!
We also appreciated how Cindy, Geico and Candell went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. They really cared for us while we were there.
