The Apartment has a private bedroom with separate living/dining space and large kitchen, plus a larger verandah with ocean views.

There is a library in each unit together with guides and reference books and games compendiums plus loudspeakers for plugging in music devices. There is free WiFi with a strong signal. Parking is available (car hire recommended).
For anyone interested in the night sky Cabier is a must. On a clear night with little ambient light, thousands of stars fold round and over the top of the promontory. Lie on your back and wonder at the canopy of stars that surround you. At certain times of year major planets can be easily picked out and craters on the moon are clearly visible at stages of its growth. Lucky to be there with a full moon? Walk on Cabier’s white sand beach at low tide and be followed by a moon shadow.
Cabier beach is stunningly beautiful. It is how you imagine a Caribbean beach to be but often is not. Normally with hardly anyone on it; save a few local people come at the weekend or on major holidays, you can often have it virtually to yourself. With an offshore reef to protect the bay and beach, other than at the highest of tides, the water is normally as calm as in our photos and as clear. Perfect for swimming, as an alternative to the pool, with some snorkelling around the inner reef. Cabier Ocean Lodge supply beach chairs.

About Gemma Lewis
We are a late middle aged professional couple living in Central London in England. We are property enthusiasts! We love restoring very old property that is run down and in need of alteration, rebuild, and refurbishment to a level of elegant comfort - it is a really enjoyable challenge for us. We have done this in London, and with holiday houses in France and the Canaries (visit www.hamiltonholidayhouses.com), Two Bays at Cabier presented us with a unique challenge. We had never ever built from scratch before on what was very much a greenfield site! We put all our experience of property rebuilding and renovation, and from what we had seen and experienced staying elsewhere in the world, into the design of the Villa and the two separate Studios. Everything from wide opening folding doors to remove the barrier of outside/inside (Vietnam), to being able to lie in your four poster bed naked and enjoy the view (!) (Tobago), high ceilings, with deep covered verandas that you can relax on if you want some shade (Tobago again) to name a couple of concepts put into Two Bays. We loved building Two Bays in such a special place and visit twice a year. When we are not there - it is available to you to come and enjoy.
Gemma Lewis purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Gemma Lewis chose Saint Andrew
We have travelled extensively over the years, but for the Caribbean we have always come back to Grenada as our favourite Caribbean island. Why? Because the island is so beautiful and welcoming as well as relaxed with old world manners. We have tried hard to find somewhere else to beat it since we both first visited. Coincidentally both separately - me hitching boats up the Caribbean travelling back from South America and my wife as a student in the USA – both in the late 60s / early 70s. We both fell in love with the island and its people and returned many times since. Why did we build Two Bays at Cabier? We stayed at Cabier the first time in 2008 purely by chance. We were staggered how natural and beautiful it is when we woke up on the first morning and looked across Cabier bay. A couple of days later floating in the water off Cabier beach my wife said - looking back at the promontory on which Two Bays now stands - 'if I was going to build anywhere in the world it would be there, but only if it would be looked after by Cabier Ocean Lodge and be attached to the hotel'. At breakfast Cabier's hotel book revealed a plot for sale ...... the rest is history. Construction started in April 2009 and our first visitors arrived January 2010. Building and fitting out nearly 4000 miles away - that is whole other story! We added the infinity pool overlooking Crochu Bay in 2011. We built Two Bays because we love beautiful Cabier, its sense of tranquillity, the natural environment and an amazing safe beach protected by the offshore reef with warm silky water and firm sand. All this with a warm welcome at Cabier Ocean Lodge (you become part of the 'Cabier family' during your stay) plus a bar and restaurant overlooking the ocean on your doorstep, it is a wonderful combination for a really relaxing holiday. Do come and experience the magic, natural beauty and tranquillity of Cabier for yourself - we would like to share it with you!
What makes this Villa unique
We built Two Bays to be somewhere which would link to the natural environment as much as possible but still give those staying elegant comfort.

Relaxing Grenadian Getaway!
Two Bays Villa is a little paradise (located near but not in the village of Crochu), situated high on a promontory between two bays, facing east. There was literally ALWAYS a lovely breeze and the views were spectacular. The main unit of this self-catering villa consists of a separate main bedroom with a comfortable king size bed, a fully equipped kitchen overlooking the main living area, and a large bathroom with a huge open shower area. On three sides of this unit are wide verandas which are accessed via louvered double doors from the living areas and the bedroom, opening up to the views and the breezes. Ceiling fans are in the rooms and there is AC, but truly, we never used the latter. During the day we left the doors wide open and practically lived on the porch, utilizing the beautiful teak tables, chairs, bench and swing. In the evening, before going to bed, we still had all the doors open, but left the indoor lights off. The veranda became our living area and we had all the porch lights glowing. This is where we read, played games or had a nightcap. When we finally went to bed, we closed the doors but kept the upper louvers open to continue to let the cooling night breezes in. We saw and felt no mosquitoes, and I am someone who normally attracts them! This villa also has its own swimming pool with vista views and we used it daily. Additionally, there is a lovely little white sand beach, (suitable for children), which is shared with Cabier Lodge and is also open to the community. The second bay is more a small fishing harbour area. We enjoyed watching a few local fishermen come into this bay to hand net their catch. (Incidentally, there are also two one bedroom studios which can be opened to join the main villa, or rented separately.) If you are searching for a private, quiet, updated, well maintained and tastefully decorated accommodation, this place would suit you. One does need a rental car but the roads are quite good especially compared to other Caribbean islands. Many of the recommended tourist destinations (Belmont Estate, River Antoine Rum Distillery, Grenville and the wonderful fish market, for example) are close by. The property manager, Alexandre, was also very helpful with suggestions as well as detailed information about the area. Dinners (which are excellent) and continental breakfasts CAN be had at the main lodge, but other options, such as La Sages, are nearby. We would definitely return to this accommodation!
A Magical Caribbean Villa in Grenada
We have travelled extensively over the past 40 years, firstly in all-inclusives and then more recently in condo apartments in tropical destinations. But never a villa - per se.
Your beautiful property did not disappoint us. It was magical - the three sided veranda, the breeze off the Atlantic, the infinity pool, the helpful and friendly people at Cabier - most specifically and with much praise and thanks to Alexander, Kenesha, KellyAnn, Steven, Iris, Bruno, the goats and the disastrously bad, but unforgettably awesome approach road.The entire experience was all so very special for us. All was as promised, and more.
The 270 degree vista from the unfolding doors/windows/veranda of our villa, which displays a breathtaking view of the Atlantic, was unforgettable, with the wonderful breezes which kept us cool and the bugs at bay.
The infinity pool looking out on the bay to the south was magical. We spent many days on the deck sunning, swimming and enjoying our private and unobstructed view.
Two Bays Villa should be a "Top Secret" property, in my opinion. We consider ourselves fortunate to have had the opportunity of staying here and enjoying the ambience and the friendly staff and wonderful cuisine of Cabier Ocean Lodge.
We will return. Thanks for your hospitality.

An idyllic retreat in a stunning location
we had a great time. Everything at the apartment was as it should be. it was clean and comfortable. it was serviced ever day and the staff were efficient, polite and helpful. the view out of our triple aspect apartment was stunning. The folding wooden louvered doors (no glass) opened to create an impression of peace and tranquility that was almost tangible. The information folder was thorough and helpful and up to date. The staff were very helpful and clearly love the island and feel very much part of it which is great. And,, yes, I would certainly recommend it to a friend or relative. We made a couple of trips to local towns which were fun as were the journeys on the local buses. We ate in the restaurant that is on site. Good food (breakfast and evening meals) in lovely surroundings served (and cooked) by great people.
Amazing villa, amazing view. This place simply gorgeous . It has great scenic views , very relaxing. Our stay here was simply incredible.The surroundings are breathtaking. The place was clean and well kept. The pool was a superb place to cool down after a day of exploring Grenada, a fantastic island . We rented a car and enjoyed the freedoom of having our own car Cabier Ocean Lodge is a few steps away provides excellent food at reasonable prices. We used the kitchen for breakfast and lunch but ate out at Cabier Ocean Lodge for dinner half of the time. We took the Spice tour provided by Bruno was extremely interesting and Bruno was a gracious host, very passionate and knowledgeable about the island. Alexander helped us with a few glitches very helpful and always with no fuss . We could not have asked for a better time.
Two Bays / Cabier Lodge
Our first time in Grenada - what lovely island! Two Bays / Cabier Lodge exceeded our expectations to the extent that we delayed our departure - had great pleasure in lounging in the pool and toasting our original flight as the plane flew over us! We stayed in one of the studios and can't speak highly enough of the standard of accommodation, appointments, cleanliness etc. The location is remote so it generally only suits those seeking a tranquil vacation (or as we think, idyllic). Although the studio was very well equipped for self-catering, the temptation of Bruno's restaurant was irresistible .... and then there's the cocktails in the restaurant bar: the setting of the restaurant is simply lovely, matched by the cuisine and the delightful staff. We confess to being rather reluctant to write a glowing review as it's one of those places you'd like to keep secret, but honesty prevails!
Outstanding accommodation and location
The description of Two Bays at Cabier was very accurate and provided us with an excellent base from which to explore different parts of Grenada. The villa was cleaned every day linen changed every 3 days and any issues settled very quickly and without any hassle.
The owner was extremely helpful, was accessible to us prior to our stay and provided very helpful written information and tips.
The link to the Ocean Lodge is excellent and provides excellent food at reasonable prices. We used our fully equipped kitchen for breakfast and lunch but ate out at Ocean Lodge for dinner half of the time. The Spice tour provided by Bruno was extremely good and gave you a good perspective of the island.
Cabier is a little remote but has the advantage of peace and tranquility, and access to a almost private beach 30m away. Hiring a car is an option but not essential and local buses are cheap and frequent and taxis are available.
Two Bays provides ideal accommodation in a 'magic' location and we would recommend it to family and friends.
What to do in “Spice Island” Grenada:
Many of our guests find their day starts to fill up once they have had a swim in the warm sea, lie on a beach lounger, and sit on their veranda in one of the swing seats or around the pool reading a good book.
The more energetic can enjoy snorkelling in the sheltered waters round the headland or strolling along the paths that wind around the coast either guided or not.
Nature lovers can see pelicans, frigate birds, egrets, herons and the occasional osprey fishing as well as humming birds, doves and butterflies in the garden without stirring from their veranda. There are local knowledgeable guides who organise trips to the magnificent rainforest that covers much of central Grenada, to see waterfalls, beautiful flowers, birds, butterflies, monkeys.
Even though you are supposed to be really chilling out and winding down Cabier style (the locals call it limin’) - you may be tempted to do a little inter-island visiting using the hydrofoil up to the neighbouring Grenadine islands of Carriacou and Petite Martinique or perhaps a day on a catamaran sailing up the coast, or diving Grenada’s reefs, all of which can be organised by Cabier.
Perhaps have a day in St George's just wandering around the beautiful harbour with its shops, restaurants and market and taking in its history through its historic forts guarding the harbour.
Bruno at Cabier organises tours to the rainforest with waterfall swimming as well as to the other main attractions on the island, nutmeg plantations, cocoa estate at Belmont and the Seven Rivers Rum distillery – where they still use 18th century methods and a water wheel to produce their rum.
Carnival is the first week of August. It is colourful, noisy with bands and exuberant with hundreds of locals parading and dancing in bizarre costumes to loud Soca music around the harbour front with a day and night parade Midnight Mass watched by locals and visitors alike - and of course lots of local food and drink.
It is a stunningly beautiful island with friendly locals who like to chat. Hire a car (Cabier will arrange - minimum 3 days hire – delivered to Cabier or picked up at airport) and go and explore the spectacular interior and coasts. Shop in the markets for local produce to tempt you to cook and buy spices, which make great gifts.
Driving is not difficult in Grenada and most places of interest in Grenada are within a 1 – 2 hour drive.
Other Activities: Nearest diving centre is 40 minutes away / Golf is 45 minutes away
