We live in the Midlands in the UK and enjoy playing golf and horseriding, eating great food, drinking good wines and exploring the many wonderful places in the world, one of which is Grenada. We fell in love with the island as soon as we stepped onshore from a cruise ship and the rest is history! We have three grown up children and two grandchildren.
Wanda Jerrom purchased this condo in 2004
We have one of the best locations on the island to easily enjoy both the wonderful beaches and the delights of St George's with lots of restaurants and a large supermarket nearby, but quiet enough to savour the paradise that is Grenada.
Other properties with pools are not conveniently situated to good beaches and we feel that to experience the beautiful calm sea in Morne Rouge Bay only a few steps away adds to a more enjoyable experience of the island and your holiday. We have spectacular views from our condo. Many lovely properties are situated in Westerhall and Fort Jeudy which are much further away from St Georges,the airport, restaurants, supermarkets, banks, etc. and the few small beaches do not have the same ambiance as BBC beach on Morne Rouge.
Whilst the success of a holiday is not solely down to the accommodation you select, there is no doubt that an otherwise enjoyable stay can be ruined if you get the accommodation wrong. By choosing to stay at Morne Maison we got our holiday off to the best possible start. In the first instance, the owner, Wanda, was extremely easy to deal with, being both prompt and informative in her answers. Payment was easy, information was accurate and reliable, and the occasional personal request (beer in the fridge on arrival) was acceded to without any fuss.
The apartment is, as described, about eighty steps from the beach, so we were in the water within twenty minutes of arriving – a great start. Coming back up to the flat, the next stop was a cold Carib on the balcony, just in time for sunset. The view over the bay is delightful and serene, and this is another great plus for Morne Maison. The other aspect that we really valued was the size and layout of the flat. Our group had a range of ages from 11 to 55, meaning that our requirements were varied and that we all needed our private space from time to time.
The two upstairs bedrooms are spacious and have en-suite bathrooms. The master bedroom has the view but the kids thought their room was perfect, with far more space than they are used to. The downstairs room is smaller, with a bathroom next door, but is very private. Ideal for the twenty-somethings who were with us. The lounge is upstairs and very spacious – so much so that there was one area which we didn’t even use during the entire month of our stay. The kitchen and dining area downstairs is also huge.
So space, view, proximity to an excellent beach, comfort, privacy. And on top of that Diana, a delightful Grenadian who came in daily and did all the chores that we hope to avoid on holiday. She would prepare fresh fruit salads every day for our breakfast, make fresh juice on request, do the cleaning and make the beds and, to our eternal gratitude, do the washing up each morning from our previous evening’s meal. She would also prepare salads and marinate meat / fish for us before leaving in the afternoon, which we would then cook in the evening.
So, all in all, an entirely merited five-star review for Morne Maison, and sincere thanks to Wanda and Diana for contributing to an excellent holiday. If you have not been to the Caribbean before, we can think of no better place to start.
We stayed for two weeks - January 30 to February 13 2016 - and had one of the most relaxed holidays ever. Wanda arranged for our collection from the airport, our hire car through "Rocky & Cecily" who were both great. Their property manager, Bentley Steele, was at Morne Rouge to meet us and the lovely Diana looked after us so well. We now count Rocky, Cecily, Bentley and Diana as our friends. The Condo seems to get better and more relaxing by the day. We alternated between eating out for Lunch and Dinner which gave us the best of both worlds and it was good to see restaurants in day light and also at night with the evening atmosphere. We tried so many - BB's Crab Back, La Luna, The Beach House, Acquarium and Calabash were our favourites and we visited each twice. Umbrellas was fun and food good so too Sangria's.
We could thoroughly recommend any body from a couple like us to a large family holidaying at Morne Maison as the accommodation, location, swimming in Morne Rouge Bay and local shops and restaurants are all excellent.
Don't delay - book it today. We will be back.

We almost didn't want to provide a review and keep this hidden gem a secret to ourselves. But the owners and supporting staff deserve to be complimented on providing our families with the perfect holiday vacation.
From the beginning, our needs were graciously met. The owners were able to make arrangements for pick up and drop off at the airport. In addition, they were able to provide us with starter supplies to get us through the holidays when many restaurants and businesses were closed. We prepared most of our own meals during the day and took advantage of some of the recommended local restaurants for dinners out.
The accommodations comfortably housed our two families: 4 adults and 4 children (ages 11-15). The property was clean and well maintained. The location was perfect; with easy access to two of the best beaches on the Island. The rooms and amenities were as advertised and represented via the listing.
We appreciated the peaceful location and would not hesitate to recommend this listing to family and friends. We are already planning a return visit.
Thank you Wanda for sharing your home with us; and pleasant staff for caring for our needs.

We had a wonderful stay at Morne Maison. The home is very comfortable and it's location couldn't be better. We walked down the stairs to a beautiful, quiet beach and also walked a few minutes to another larger, very beautiful beach. Wanda was also great providing us with fantastic information before our arrival -- from connecting us with Rocky for a car rental to myriad suggestions for local restaurants and activities. We also loved Diana, who kept the apartment clean and also prepared several meals for us. Overall, we had a perfect vacation and look forward to returning to Morne Maison soon!
My wife and I celebrated her 40th birthday staying at Morne Maison. Although it was just the two of us, we will hopefully come back with our three boys. There is plenty of room for 8 if needed. The view off the balcony and their atrium was amazing. Pictures cannot do it justice. The A/C in the room was great to have when we returned back from the beach. The location is perfect as you can also take a 15 minute walk and be at Gran Anse beach. We preferred Morne Rouge beach (5 minutes away) as it had better snorkeling on both ends of the bay. We never rented a car but took a great excursion with their recommended tour guide named Justin. He was very kind and helpful and showed us Grand Etang National Park and Belmont estates. He even traveled around to find us some Grenada national soccer jerseys for our boys!!! There were three very good restaurants within walking distance and an Italian coffee and pastry shop just outside the entrance. Diana was there every morning (except Sundays) cleaning up and being helpful in many ways. I would highly recommend this quiet place to anyone.
We spent ten days at Morne Maison and as six adults there was more than enough space. We loved spending time in the upstairs lounge and on the balcony. There was every facility and utensil you could possible need in the kitchen. The bedrooms were comfortable and the air conditioning and showers excellent.
The location, on what we thought was one of the best beaches, was just beautiful.The steps down to the beach were not too difficult for those with poorer mobility.
Diana, the housekeeper, was very helpful.She kept everything spotlessly clean, hung out our washing and ironed a few items whilst we were out. She made us a couple of fruit salads, a breadfruit salad and some rice and pigeon peas to go with our barbeque. On arriving, when asked about car hire she immediately contacted a company for us who came within the hour. This company also arranged to pick up our luggage for the return to the airport (ten minutes away) .
The large supermarket is about a twenty minute walk down the road. There are many restaurants nearby. We liked Sangria, just a few yards away, Sweetleys, literally opposite, for coffee and pastries and had a really nice breakfast at Kalingo, and Papillon.
We loved Rocky's bar on the beach, we wished it was open more than just the weekends.
The Boulangerie was good for pizza delivery and to sit outside for lunch.Umbrellas on Grand Anse beach was an excellent American style diner. Our favourite, however, was The Aquarium on Magazine Beach. We had a superb Sunday BBQ and enjoyed listening to the live music. This beach is also offers good snorkelling.
A visit to Belmont Estate with lunch in their restaurant made a lovely day out. There are so many places to visit and explore around the island.
One point, make sure you use mosquito repellent morning and evening. They sneak through the open slats of the louvre windows in the atrium of the condo.
We so loved Grenada with its really friendly people, our chats with the night security staff, and the abundant wildlife. We have recommended Morne Rouge to a family with young children as the beach is so suitable and to a couple of retirees who will enjoy the peace and tranquility. We actually missed the night-time music of the whistling frogs!

The views of beach were just as pictured. We stayed with another couple for the week and enjoyed lunches on the beach (they will let you use the beach chairs if you eat at the various places on BBC beach. We especially enjoyed the upstairs lanai to sip cocktails and enjoy the breeze. The downstairs bedroom was not used and it seemed a bit musty. The upper bedrooms were fine and the air conditioners were welcome at night.
Diana was very helpful and friendly. We would definitely recommend staying here. Close to supermarket and many lovely places to eat.
Nestled into the corner of Morne Rouge Bay, Morne Maison is situated in a discreet ,quiet beach location The bay is wonderful and safe for swimming.Ten minutes walk however brings you to Grande Anse beach with first class hotels,a modern shopping mall ,scuba diving and sailing centres, banks, chemists and a varied selection of fantastic beach side restaurants. Travel further down the coast to visit St Georges, the hub of Grenada. Wander down the Carenage, arguably the most attractive port in the West Indies. Stop at one of the various bars for a carib beer, stroll through the spice market or shop at the cruise terminal mall for souvenirs. Hire a car to explore this wonderful island with its own rain forest and enjoy your own penthouse paradise for a cool rum and coke on the balcony watching the fabulous sunsets . Morne Maison gives you the best of both worlds; space to relax and unwind from life's hectic pace but near to turtle watching ,diving, sailing, hiking etc to give you an exciting fun filled holiday.
Golf: There is a nine-hole golf course about 10 minutes drive away and the condo is equipped with 5 sets of ladies and gents clubs for your use. If you wish to play, you need to phone beforehand to book your start time and you may also wish to hire a Caddy (local lads who carry your clubs and are very helpful and friendly!) It is quite a challenging little course.
