Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Grenada

Lovely apartment sleeps 2, super pool & decking area, view of Grand Anse Beach

The most spectacular view on Grenada! One King bedroom ensuite with great views of Grand Anse beach. Prettily furnished, light and airy with flyscreens at all windows. Set in the grounds of the owners' house, maid service is provided and we are on site to look after your needs. There is a large decking area and pool outside your front door, with recliners/chairs and tables - your own movie theatre of the Caribbean. You can eat inside or on the patio, in the Gazebo or on the decking itself. Delicious home-cooked meals are on offer. Cool off in the infinity pool while sipping a G&T of course. Everything awaits you, hospitality, tranquility and relaxation. Bird song to wake you in the morning and the stars to kiss you Goodnight!

INTERNET ACCESS throughout. There is a laundry room for guests' use which you are welcome to use at any time with a small charge for electricity, soap etc.

Free pick-up and drop-off at the airport and we also offer to take you to the local supermarket on arrival. No charge.

We also offer Big Game Fishing Charters.

Note please: Steep roads lead up to the property and a car is advised.

Our friend Flavio Vallenari took the photo of the front view of our house.

COME, ENJOY!

This is a Rural Area and you will live in Grenada seeing the island as a Grenadian. If you walk thru the village you will experience first hand the friendliness and hospitality of the people. This is the best type of holiday, otherwise you stay in an hotel with manicured lawns and never get to know this beautiful island.

Please note that we have dogs. They live outside downstairs and are NEVER allowed upstairs where the apartment is or on any of the facilities of decking/pool or outside upstairs.

If you want entertainment it's close at hand. So, you have the best of both worlds at 'Inside Out'.

We have superb Curry Bonanzas and if you cannot make it to one of the planned events, then please do give me a call and arrange a date with a group of your friends and come along.

Evening Meals: There is a different menu every night consisting of 2/3 courses. We also have a monthly curry bonanza with an amazing array of dishes. Even if you are staying at another resort you are most welcome to call us on 457 8517 or email us to arrange a private curry evening for you as well as a group.

This is simple food made really special with only the best and freshest ingredients. It's not what you do but the 'Way that You Do It'. Our own homemade Hot Pepper Jam is so popular that it is on sale in the large supermarket in Grand Anse! Other products are also on sale in the IGA/Real Value store in Grand Anse including our latest Tuna in Olive Oil, cooked the same day it's caught!

Sip a cocktail in your private pool to sooth away all your cares and the view from there over the Caribbean and Grand Anse is stunning. This is a great attraction because you don't have to go out and some of the best limin' is to be had here.

With the beautiful Caribbean Sea just minutes away, our own boat 'Wayward Wind' is available for some of the best big game fishing. A 31ft Bertram she is fully equipped for an amazing day's fishing. We were Best Grenada Boat in the billfish tournament of 2014.

The best time of year for Marlin, Sailfish and Yellowfin tuna is between January thru to June/July. You will have fun, a great crew and everything is provided from bait, rods, tackle, cold drinks and of course fish. You are welcome to try a trip of 6 hours or a full day of 8 hours.

Please check our links page and click on your interest. You can check out our page for food on facebook.

If you don't want to hire a car we can arrange a local taxi cab service for you; our drivers are a mine of information as well as being entertaining and you can enjoy a day long wonderful tour of the island or simply a short journey to the supermarket, the beach, a stop for lunch and then back home to relax in the cool of your bedroom or a dip in the pool. Drinks later on followed by dinner! Now, doesn't that sound good?

NOTE: The apartment and all its facilities are for the use of two people ONLY.

A view you'll never forget

  • 5 of 5

'Inside Out' is a beautiful apartment, located in a quiet location and yet you feel as though you are on top of the world, as you look down on Grand Anse which is only a 5 minute drive away. A hire car is essential but this can be arranged through Ellen/Stewart and you then have the freedom to go where you want, when you want.

The apartment was well equipped with a very comfortable large bed and was clean and comfortable.

The area outside is great for sunbathing/relaxing and the pool is ideal to cool down in.

There was always a cooling breeze which was very welcome.

Ellen and Stewart were the perfect hosts and if you fancy a days fishing, Captain Stewart is your man.

The view from the garden is outstanding and one you will never forget.

We would not hesitate to stay with Ellen and Stewart again.

A third visit for us

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt as though we were at home, and of course it almost is as this was our third visit to Inside Out.

We are a late middle aged couple who are tired of the razmataz offered by so many locations not only in the Caribbean but in many other countries around the world. Inside Out provides a peace and tranquilty that is seldom found, the accomodation is first class, the hosts perfect and the situation perched high above Grand Anse unbeatable.

Enough superlative commentary from us, come and stay you will not be dissapointed.

A bien tot Ellen and Stuart,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,until the next time.

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days and had a marvellous time. The apartment is well appointed and has the best views in Grenada. Ellen and Stewart were very helpful from our pick up at the airport to arranging car hire (essential) with Lorry. We had a couple of meals prepared by Ellen which were excellent. The passion fruit pannacotta is to die for!

The pool is nicely kept and very clean. Ellen and Stewart know the island well and are able to offer any advice you may need. Bedding was changed every 3 days. The apartment has 2 showers and one large bedroom with a very large comfortable bed.

We would love to go back again and we strongly recommend it.

So we good we have returned.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our first visit to Inside Out in December 2013 so much we just had to return. Our second visit even more enjoyable than our first.

Ellen and Stewart the perfect hosts, their garden is a provider of glorious tropical fruits it was our luck that when we stayed passion fruits and other fruits were in abundance and available for us to enjoy every day. PERFECT.

I am not going to say any more as I have said it all before in my previous reviews and also just in case too many discover this gem that when we wish to make our next visit Inside Out is already booked!!!

Thank you again Ellen and Stewart, and so pleased that naughty Crystal and Alpha found their way back.

We have just booked again for 2015.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Kevin and Jenny for coming back to us and for sending in another splendid review. We were so pleased that you booked a return visit and that now you will be coming back to us for a third time! It will be wonderful to see you again and already we are looking forward to having you here. The passion fruit is still flowering and producing so much fruit that we are able to supply several of our neighbours! A very Happy Christmas and great New Year from us.

Fantastic apartment!

  • 5 of 5

What a great apartment! Where to start??

Ok, so first of all the apartment is on top of a hill, a big hill! So the views over Grand Anse beach are amazing and you get some fantastic sunsets too! Then there's the pool, it's lovely, totally secluded and perfect for cooling off in, with loads of recliners and tables and chairs around it. Then there's the apartment itself, almost all the wall space is given over to opening windows that have mesh on the front which keeps the inside bug free! and means it's cool, there's a fully kitted out kitchen, two bathrooms and a brilliantly comfortable huge bed in the bedroom!

Then there's the 6 lovely Jack Russells and 2 big (but not scary) Rottweiler's - their antics, as you watch them unseen from above, are hilarious!

The apartment is less than a 5 minute drive from Grand Anse beach - you must try the Carriacou Love Bites, Conch Fritters and Jack Daniels glazed chicken wings at Umbrellas on the beach. The best beach is back towards the airport look for sings to the Beach House restaurant - walk down the paths either side of the fences surrounding the Beach House and you are on Dr Grooms beach - stunning! And in September almost deserted! But there are so many great places to eat and beaches to visit and Grenada is small enough to drive around in a few hours - we know we did it!

Lastly, and by no means leastly, there's the owners Ellen and Stewart in their house right next door. We didn't meet Stewart, he was off visiting family in the UK, but Ellen was the most wonderful host. She really made us feel so welcome, from collecting us at the airport and rustling up something for 2 weary travellers to eat on their first night, to the really thoughtful bottle of sparkling wine and card for our wedding anniversary and advice on things to do and places to eat out in; nothing was too much. I have to say at the end of our week we both had a little tear in our eyes as we said good bye to Ellen and "Inside Out".

We really hope to return some time in the not too distant future!

So sad to leave !!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Inside Out guest house for the month of April 2014 and were very sad to leave. Ellen and Stewart were awesome hosts - friendly, funny and helpful in so many ways that enabled us to get the most out of our trip to Grenada and experience the island culture. They were never intrusive, we had plenty of privacy and enjoyable chats with them. We enjoyed Ellen's curry night immensely as well as her selection of preserves some of which came home with us! Having a pay-as-you-go cell phone provided was a great plus for us.

The accommodations were wonderful - the view is spectacular; sailboats, amazing sunsets and the twinkling lights of Grand Anse beach below. The pool was lovely and refreshing. The kitchen is well equipped and we enjoyed cooking up breakfast and dinner with all the fresh local produce available in the grocery store and small fruit & veggie stands. There are two nice bathrooms with large tiled showers so we were able to have "his and her" bathrooms. As well there are two large wardrobes so we had plenty of room to store our belongings. The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed seeing the lights of grand Anse beach through the window. Sleeping was no issue as it cooled off at night and the many windows allowed the breeze to blow through. Rose, the cleaning lady, did an excellent job of keeping the place spotless for us. Ellen has a separate washing machine for guests and it was heaven to hang our clothes on the line to dry.

We wanted to get a lot of exercise while we were in Grenada so we did not rent a car - but that would be a good option. From the main road we often took the local bus/vans to explore and enjoyed it very much. Walking back up the hill is a workout and doing it later in the day is advisable. We took a taxi back up when we bought groceries at the fully equipped grocery store at spiceland mall - a short walk from the beach. Make sure you try the local cooking from the deli ! The walk down to the beach was very enjoyable - once you come to the main road if you turn right and walk a bit down the street past the post office there are steps leading down to the beautiful beach. We took the golf course hill route as it is less steep.

Stewart and Ellen's dogs are very sweet and friendly. The property is fenced and gated and the stairs to the upper level are gated at the bottom so the dogs stay at the lower level.

We loved our stay at Inside Out and the people of Grenada and were so sad to leave !

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to have you stay with us for one month. It was wonderful to see you enjoying all the pleasures up on our hill - the views of course, drinks on the patio, bbq in the evenings, amazing sunsets to mention a few. Thank you for a super review, it makes us very happy knowing that you enjoyed Grenada and "Inside Out" so much. We hope to meet up again one day.

Our little village of Jean Anglais, historically known as 'genre Anglais' - English people - is on a lovely hilltop location with easy reach of all activities. There is a golf course in walking distance and beautiful Grand Anse beach just 1km away offering all water sports and a large craft market right on the beach. Restaurants, bars and shops abound. The town of St. George's is 10 minutes away with a bustling street market selling everything from spices and fruit to the fish market for the freshest fish imaginable. Check out the awesome sight of Turtles coming ashore to lay, visit the spice plantations and gardens and take home spices grown on Grenada. Grenada is home to one of the best chocolate industries in the world; rich and smooth like velvet. The beauty of Grenada is the land and its people, unfailing friendliness, helping hands and smiles as warm as the sun.

Grenada, the Spice Isle has a natural beauty of quiet countryside blending perfectly with its tropical climate of sunshine and warmth. Driving off the beaten track you will see nutmeg trees at the side of the road opening up their treasure chest complete with mace, cloves on bushes tucked away behind a pretty pink flower and mango trees with their huge fruit hanging down in an offering to 'pick me'.

Grenada has it all and here at 'Inside Out' we offer you homely comforts with a mix of natural splendour. You won't be disappointed.

WEDDING PACKAGE. Let us do it for you. No stress and you are free to ejoy the day in a beautiful place. The property is in a secluded area away from traffic and there is secured car parking off road. Is this the good life? We think it is and would love to share it with you. Please note that we do not take young people below the age of 14 years; we believe our accommodation is not suitable to their needs.
