                                                                                                    5 of 5

In a quiet authentic village with amazing views and the right facilities for the children, we had a relaxing holiday. In good reach of Grenada there was plenty to do on the tourist side as well as the local history in Moclin itself. The owners ensured we had all we need and were perfect hosts. Definitely a place I would recommend.

I went with my wife and four year old son and we all loved it. For us the pool was the highlight, set at the top of the hill with lovely views across the olive tree covered hills. We spent most of our time here, darting from water to the sun and then the cool shady bar/lounge area. The interior design was obviously well considered, the attention to detail was exceptional and you could easily take three different families there and still have your own privacy. Tish and Jeff were very helpful, always on hand to offer advice or sort any issues. Thoroughly recommended.
