Make a holiday rental property or villa in Grenada, Caribbean your home away from home

Located at the southern tip of the Caribbean, Grenada is a small, mountainous island blanketed by rare, fragrant, tropical vegetation and surrounded sublime, white sand beaches, all blessed by the Caribbean sun. The tiny nation of Grenada actually consists of three separate islands; Grenada, Carriacou and Petit Martinique, although the island of Grenada is by far the largest and most populated.

Things to do on holiday in Grenada

The beaches in Grenada are special, even for the Caribbean. The beaches are absolutely picture-perfect, with the gleaming white sands being gently lapped by crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea, and backed by tall palm trees. The famous cliché of Caribbean beaches could have easily been started here, as they really do fit the mould! There are a couple of volcanic black sand beaches in Grenada too, which are startlingly atmospheric, and quite a surprise to stumble across. The Grand Anse Beach is the most famous of the beaches in Grenada, having been pictured in travel guides and explored in travel programmes around the world.

Off shore, Grenada is surrounded by some magnificent coral reefs, home to a vast array of marine species. The best way to discover the underwater world off the beaches of Grenada is to take a snorkel or even better, head out into the Caribbean armed with scuba diving gear.

The interior of Grenada is a seductive mix of tropical forests, cascading water falls and gushing rivers as well as some of the most astonishingly beautiful mountain lakes you will ever see. The Le Sagesse Nature Centre and the Grand Etang National Park are two of the best places to explore the scenery on foot, but if you walk in any direction from your self catering Grenada holiday rental villa, you are bound to stumble across a natural treasure.

Places to stay on holiday in Grenada

The capital of Grenada, St Georges, is regularly cited as the most beautiful town in the whole of the Caribbean. Sitting on a crescent shaped bay, St Georges boasts some wonderfully traditional shops, restaurants and villas, and throughout the year, there are festivals and fairs which are celebrated with gusto. Laid back rhythms fill the air during these times, and the tiny rum distilleries found on the island ensure that there is enough rum to keep the parties going long into the warm evening. The annual festival is a fantastic time to get a flight to Grenada, occurring in the second week of August.

Weather in Grenada

Temperatures average around 29°C for the whole year, with only very slight variations from month to month, meaning Grenada perfectly fits the old cliché; there really is not a bad time to take a holiday in Grenada. Rain is not uncommon throughout the year, but it tends to disappear as fast as it arrived, and with temperatures as high as they are, a little rain cannot possibly ruin your holidays in Grenada.

Travel to Granada

Located on the southern tip of Grenada, 5 miles from St Georges, the Point Salines International Airport (GND) makes holidays to Grenada really easy to start. Flights to Grenada are usually routed through Barbados (BGI), Puerto Rico (SJU) or Trinidad (POS), but there are some flights to Grenada which come directly from Europe. In Britain we are lucky, there are three airlines flying to Grenada directly from London Gatwick (LGW). The airlines flying to Grenada are British Airways and Virgin Atlantic.

                                                                                                      We spent a wonderful week at Villa Joya enjoying every minute of our stay. The short flight from Grenada in a small (8 passenger) plane is an experience in itself and we were met at the tiny airport with a warm smile by the Property Manager, Alison, who was a mine of information about the island and through whom we arranged our boat trips. The Villa is in a lovely location feeling secluded and very private, with beautiful gardens and views and a constant cooling sea breeze. The huge open plan living area is designed in such a way as to feel like being outside while inside – it is stylish and luxurious (and impeccably kept by the housekeeper, Barbara) but at the same time has a very homely feel. The island itself is a pleasure to explore, the main town charming and the people friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed shopping for locally grown fruit and veg from the street vendors with stalls dotted around town and fresh fish from the daily catch at the fish market to barbecue at the Villa. There are idyllic, quiet beaches to visit on Carriacou itself but if you feel like venturing further the boat trips to (mostly deserted) surrounding islands are spectacular. The boat trips we took included lunch and catering for particular diets (for one of us vegan) was no problem and the meals delicious. Our eagle eyed boat Captain and guide, Mojo, had an encyclopaedic knowledge of the area and marine and wildlife – there was nothing to be seen that he did not spot and point out to us! Swimming with the turtles and around the coral reef at Tobago Cays was magical and not to be missed. We were very impressed by the lack of commercialisation and desire to preserve the beautiful natural environment – especially striking in the mangroves with their totally untouched oyster beds and which provide a natural shelter for boats during storms. Whether you want to just relax around a pool, sipping rum punch in a lovely setting with beautiful views or go further afield and be more adventurous, this is a perfect place. We had a truly memorable holiday and the only downside was having to leave – you will want to go back!

The apartment itself was beautiful, spotlessly clean, wonderful gardens and 2 well placed hammocks overlooking the bay. The apartment is outside the main tourist area but with car hire this causes no problems whatsoever. We really can't praise the apartment and Ann and Yvonne highly enough. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday.
