Overview

About the property

1 American King Bed ensuite, 1 Double sofa bed, full kitchen, veranda, beach

Less than 100 footsteps from tranquil Morne Rouge BBC Beach, St. George, Grenada, The Love Shack is a little ole’ place where you can get together. The self catering condo is a one bedroom with a American king-sized bed, plus a double lounger sofa bed, so it sleeps up to 4. (5 if someone loves a hammock on a veranda!).

The fully fitted kitchen is dated, but offers you all appliances in good working order- including fridge/freezer, range and cooking utensils. For coffee lovers, there’s a coffee machine. For teatotallers, there’s a kettle. A microwave and toaster is available for the non-chef types. (Sorry, tea and coffee not included).

The bathroom is also shabby chic, but fully functional, although the bidet is now a modern art sculpture! Coming soon – an outdoor shower to rinse the salt and sand from your elegant locks of hair and tanned limbs.

If you need to, pack light, as there’s a clothes washer on site, along with a laundry line and clothes pins.

For rainy days, enjoy a plethora of books in our library and DVD movies to watch on our little 13″ tv. The best thing to do is hang out on the covered veranda in the hammock and enjoy the view! Slip a song in the cd player and take a nap.

Located less than a minutes walk to the fab Sangria restaurant on one side and Kalinago Bay Resort on the other, you can also easily walk a couple more minutes to the friendly and lively Flamboyant Resort where there’s a pub and beach side dining. From there, you’re at the south end of Grand Anse beach, so take a sunset stroll down the beach to dine at any of the resorts. Feeling lazy? Order from several local delivery places.

The Love Shack is the ideal place to relax and unwind for honeymooners, second and third time around mooners, small families, a couple couples, or just yourself. Enjoy the leisurely pace of island life, swim and hang with the friendly people of Grenada. But don’t worry if being in another world scares you- we have limited wifi for you to check your emails and post on social media so all your friends can wallow in your good fortune!

Why Faith McNitt chose Grenada

The people of Grenada will make you feel like you've made the absolute best choice in vacation destinations! We love Grenada and hope you'll find your stay as enjoyable as every time we have been there. This property offers you the best of two worlds, both for beach lovers. Morne Rouge beach is tranquil and quiet most days, although locals visit in droves not the weekends. Grand Anse beach is just over the hill, offering you a plethora of activities and things to do.

What makes this condo unique

You can't get much closer to the beach than this property. It is secure, close to several restaurants and bars and only minutes walk to the south end of Grand Anse beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a gem of a place to holiday on the Island of Grenada. Located in the south west close to the airport but you wouldn't know it and a very short step to a fabulous beach which I rate better than Grande Anse beach around the corner. The apartment is compact, has everything you could possibly need if you cook, which I don't. Beach restaurants are just a few steps away. Bentley Skeet who manages the apartment is brilliant and very interesting character. I highly recommend The Love Shack and would stay here again. Just sitting on the terrace looking at that fabulous beach drinking a cocktail was memorable. The sea here is great for swimming. Clear, gently shelved. Locals like this beach for picnics at the weekend; during the week it is practically empty. There are quite a few steps from the front entrance downwards to the apartment which is the last one in the small gated complex before another gate to the lane and beach. On the plus side there are just a few steps down to the beach gate from the apartment door.

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Nothing posh, which is perfect for us. Great kitchen utensils, clean and compact. Private and views of the beach. Loved it!

Quite cluttered, views of beach, disgusting inside shower!

  • 2 of 5

The beach views are somewhat dampened by a huge children's play structure (not the owner's fault) and many stairs need to be circumnavigated with heavy luggage (again not the owner's fault). The inside shower is another matter! The tub is stained, the paint is peeling and there is an abundance of mould and mildew. This needs to be addressed soon. It goes past the definition of "shabby chic" and is really quite disgusting!!!

Owner's Response: I'm terribly sorry that you were disappointed. It's a mountainous island and I'm glad you didn't stay at one of the other resorts where there are 3-5x as many steps! The island is both pet and child friendly, so of course there are nice things for them to do. As for the indoor tub/shower, admittedly a refurbishment needs doing, but there is absolutely no mold or mildew. (I arrived shortly after you left.) The place has been so booked that we have been unable to schedule a remodel, plus we only bought it last year and are spreading our remodel budget.) I'm glad you didn't stay before we bought it and replaced most of the furniture, the washing machine and the air conditioner, as well as new kitchen utensils and a paint job. (Everywhere but the bathroom!) The bathroom is scheduled for a painting during our stay so guests aren't inconvenienced. Next time you may wish to stay in a posh resort, more to your standards. This is the "Grenada Love Shack." I have represented it as such. It is on a hilly island called Grenada. It's is surround by laid back and loving people. It's not posh, it's a little shack.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Wer stayed for a week. The loveshack is a bit of a shack, but has everything you need and the patio overlooking the Mourned Rouge beach is stunning. The condo in general is well kept, the outdoor shower is great. Kitchen well equipped, fast internet. Steps from the Rouge Morneau Beach and a short 5 min walk to Grant Anse. Reading lights on the night stands were the only things we missed...we can highly recommend this place, as long as you are not too fuzzy about some peeling paint in the bathroom, or some clutter here or there.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments, Susanne. We've had so many bookings that we couldn't get the bathroom painted! I'll be there next week and we'll sort that out:) Bed side reading lamps have been mentioned before, so I'm bringing that upgrade with me as well.

Can't wait to go back!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Love Shack was everything we needed! Away from the big crowds of the resorts and at the best beach on the island! We loved the condo, it had everything we needed and the outdoor area was where we spent most our time. The outdoor shower is a big bonus! If you need anything, Bentley is great to lean on. Staying at the Love Shack, we found we truly relaxed as opposed to staying on a resort....we didn't have structured meal times, we could sleep in without worrying we won't get loungers on the beach, and most important we were not trying always trying to avoid that one annoying person you tend to run into all the time at a resort..lol

From the Love Shack it is a beautiful walk to the grocery store, some shopping and more restaurants. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare your meals. We stopped at the grocery store right from the airport to pick up some basic needs.

Right across from the Love Shack The Plywood Bar was our favourite, Levi makes the best fish taco's. Gerard took us out on a tour and fishing which was a great adventure which I would definitely recommend, he is hilarious.

The Love Shack is steps from the beach which has loungers available for free. The locals from the area are extremely friendly and very helpful if you have any questions. We are starting to plan our next visit back to the Love Shack already!!

A Gem of a Property with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The Love Shack is compact yet has absolutely everything one needs for an enjoyable stay including a/c in the bedroom. The bathroom is a good size, with a shower and bath tub. From the property entrance there are quite a few steps down (and up!) as this is the end property at the bottom of this small gated development. However, on the plus side, this makes it easy to access the beach which is only a few steps away across a lane where there is a good restaurant which is handy for breakfast etc. The Love Shack is very well equipped if you are into cooking which I am not. The terrace with seating gives a stunning view of a very nice beach. (In my estimation, nicer than Grand Anse as there were very few people on it when I stayed and its a great swimming beach too. The colour is amazing and a shallow reach for swimming). At the entrance to the gated community is another good place serving great coffee and pastries. I would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.
