Craigston villa description

Tucked into a hillside immediately above the bay and set among flowering and fruit trees this spacious ocean view island villa has just been elegantly remodeled and comprehensively renovated to provide an elegant and private retreat for its guests. Not surprising, Frangipani-Villa is the choice of discerning clients. This villa features a spacious, open floor plan, covered patio, sun deck, and ocean view bedrooms. There are sweeping vistas across Hillsborough Bay to the uninhabited out-islands and unparalleled sunsets. A private plunge pool adjoining the main living area make this the perfect indoor/outdoor base from which to enjoy Carriacou and explore the surrounding islands.

The driveway comes directly to the main house entrance, making this villa particularly suitable for elderly or handicapped guests. A side gate through the gardens leads to a track through the trees to Tom's Bay or use the main gate for a similar stroll to the near-deserted half mile beach at Sparrow Bay.


Carriacou is the most southerly of the Grenadines, situated 20 miles north of Grenada, latitude 12.5 degrees. It has an area of 13 square miles and is the largest of the chain of islands between Grenada and St. Vincent. The first settlers, the Amerindians appropriately referred to Carriacou as the 'Land of Reefs'. Carriacou is one of the 3 islands that makes up the tri-island Nation of Grenada. (The 3 islands are Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique).

History: Carriacou was settled by the French, though in 1763 was ceded with Grenada to the British. The majority of the inhabitants today are of African descent, with the influence in the island mainly British, such as driving on the left, though French names are still noticed, especially in the L'Esterre area. The village of Windward is home to the descendant of a group of Scottish boat builders who settled here in the 19th century. The Scottish names and boat building skills have been passed down through the generations.

Many locally built boats from small fishing sloops to large trading schooners are seen in the Carriacou waters.

Culture: Carriacou is rich in cultural history and has as part of its legacy the Big Drum and Quadrille dances. Before the arrival of Europeans, Grenada was inhabited by Carib Indians who had driven the more peaceful Arawaks from the island. Columbus landed on Grenada in 1498 during his third voyage to the new world. He named the island 'Concepcion.' The origin of the name 'Grenada' is obscure but it is likely that Spanish sailors renamed the island for the city of Granada. By the beginning of the 18th century, the name 'Grenada,' or 'la Grenade' in French, was in common use. Partly because of the Carib Indians, Grenada remained uncolonized for more than 100 years after its discovery; early English efforts to settle the island were unsuccessful. In 1650, a French company founded by Cardinal Richelieu purchased Grenada from the English and established a small settlement.

After several skirmishes with the Caribs, the French brought in reinforcements from Martinique and defeated the Caribs, the last of whom leaped into the sea rather than surrender. The island remained under French control until its capture by the British in 1762, during the Seven Years' War. Grenada was formally ceded to Great Britain in 1763 by the Treaty of Paris. Although the French regained control in 1779, the island was restored to Britain in 1783 by the Treaty of Versailles.

Although Britain was hard pressed to overcome a pro-French revolt in 1795, Grenada remained British for the remainder of the colonial period. During the 18th century, Grenada's economy underwent an important transition. Like much of the rest of the West Indies, it was originally settled to cultivate sugar, which was grown on estates using slave labor.
Agriculture: In 1782, Sir Joseph Banks, the botanical adviser to King George III, introduced nutmeg to Grenada.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: We consider Grenada "home" and it continues to remind us of the carefree happy times spent as children with family and friends who like us, continue to return. Of all the places visited it's the caribbean and in particular Carriacou and the Grenadines because of the spectacular views, quiet, relaxing ambience and friendly people. There is nothing more breathtaking than a day trip to several of the uninhabited out islands and Tobago Keys to enjoy a leisurly day of snorkeling and swimming with the turtles and enjoying the beautiful marine wildlife and clear blue waters.

                          Why the Owner Chose Craigston:
                          This villa is situated in the beautiful and much sought after private and secluded Craigston development. Carriacou is still an unspoiled part of the caribbean offering tranquility, beautiful vistas, and a quaint down town to wander through and purchase locally grown provisions or stop in at the deli for freshly made croissants and delicacies in addition to staples from the mainland. Carriacou is easily accessible to the main island of Grenada via ferry or aircraft.
