Craigston villa description
Our ocean front home set on the end of Craigston Point, enjoys 270 degree views over Hillsborough Bay to Cistern Point in the south, the out islands to the west, and Union Island to the north. Enjoy the cooling breeze on the west facing veranda overlooking the pool deck. Perfect for a lazy breakfast, reading a book, or sunset cocktails as you watch for the green flash! Enjoy the tiled plunge pool or soak up some sun on the surrounding deck in full privacy.
Ginger Lily is a wonderful, private, and relaxing retreat. In addition to the pool, sun deck, and veranda, the outdoor area is full of beautiful foliage and flowering plants. Directly from the villa you may access the stairs to Tom's Bay for swimming and snorkeling. Sparrow Beach is a five minute walk from the Villa.
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.
A visit to Carriacou promises a Caribbean vacation that is a retreat from busy day-to-day life. The island is more remote than many and does not have the hustle and bustle of tourism that is more common on many other islands.
It is a wonderful island if you like to hike and explore on foot. There are two nice hikes on the highest peaks with great views of the surrounding islands and the Grenadines. There are a few small towns: Hillsborough (closest to Ginger Lily), Harvey Vale, L' Esterre and Windward. In Hillsborough you will find small shops, the fish market, local fruits and vegetables, and if you are early enough you may be able to get a fresh turnover at Patti's Deli. L' Esterre is the home to beautiful Paradise Beach with the fun beach bars, "Off the Hook" and "The Hardwood." Harvey Vale provides good harbor for boat traffic and a number of small restaurants, be sure to stop at the "Slipaway" for lunch or dinner. The north end of the island is home to the small town of Windward where boat building and fishing are a part of the local fabric.
If you are interested in exploring under water, there are padi and dive operators available.
You may also hire a local taxi driver to take you on a relaxed tour of the island who will provide you with local points of interest and an informative island history. Or rent a jeep and explore on your own. There is ferry service to Grenada and air service if you wish to visit other area islands.
Ginger Lily is a light and airy villa full of color and comfort. It is an open design villa with an open living/dining/kitchen area--each tastefully decorated and furnished. Patio doors lead from the living and kitchen area to the spacious covered veranda that becomes another room and the space that you will return to several times a day.

Year Purchased: 2000
About: We are native Vermonters who love the outdoors, sharing meals with family and friends, and enjoying life.
After traveling several times to the Caribbean, we happened upon Carriacou. It felt like one of the last islands in the Caribbean not touched by development. On our first visit we stayed for six weeks, walked the entire island, and met many friendly and warm people. During the last week of our stay, we found our Craigston Point property. We signed on the dotted line as we were departing for the airstrip to fly home in 1989! We built Ginger Lily in 2000; it was crafted by local Grenadians. Carriacou is off the beaten path in terms of tourism and offers a sense of community. For us Carriacou is the place where we can forget about everything, relax, and retreat from day-to-day life. After 20 years of coming to the island, there is no question that it is home...
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
As an open design villa, enjoy fabulous ocean views and sunsets. Watch the boats and vessels as they pass by. Take a walk to the beach for some shelling or snorkeling. Walk into town for an evening meal or to visit the new fish market and fresh fruit and vegetable vendors. Ginger Lily is truly a private, tropical retreat.
