Property description

Originally built as a private artist's atelier in 1994, Amaryllis House is a secluded, idyllic retreat, a place to completely relax, in nature and away from the pressures of urban life.

Built entirely of wood in a traditional tropical style, the house features a high-ceilinged great room with skylight. Verandah doors fold back to create a panoramic view of meadows, forested lands, sea and cliffs. This is a natural living: there is no air conditioning, and you sleep under mosquito nets. Here, you experience from the house the unspoiled beauty of the island, and at the same time get a taste of local village life. Amaryllis House is perfect for the guest wanting to get off the beaten track. And because it is a self-contained cottage rather than a resort, our rates remain affordable.

The house is situated on the Atlantic coast 40 minutes from Grenada's capital St. George's, and 20 minutes south of the second largest town, Grenville, near the village of Crochu.

A bakery, a small grocery store, and night-time street-side BBQ is a short drive away, as is the Cabier Ocean Lodge, which offers restaurant-style meals with notice. Grenadians are among the Caribbean's most welcoming, friendly, helpful and hospitable people and will afford you the friendship and courtesies you show them.

At Amaryllis House, a sleeping loft with a double bed, two daybeds in the great room, and a bed on the verandah sleep six in total (but somewhat tightly), with a well-equipped kitchen, and a bathroom with shower. Take breakfast on the verandah, while watching birds including tiny iridescent humming birds at certain times of year. Fall asleep lulled by the sound of the sea lapping the beach, and awaken to cooling sea breezes, or enjoy a view of the ocean in the loft with champagne-like light dappling through the trees. For the adventurous, come in rainy season (June-September), when daily downpours mean that everything is growing and the mangoes are in season (and insects more plentiful!)

A footpath leads you through a meadow to Mahot Beach, used by local fishermen. One of the most beautiful beaches for safe swimming on the island, Cabier Beach, is a 15 minute walk away. The property features a grove of tropical shrubs and fruit trees: calabash, soursop, papayas, bananas, cinnamon, a variety of mangoes, sapodillas, cashew, and coconut trees, as well as bougainvillea, heliconia, crotons, lemon grass, oleanders, and ixoras.

We are happy to arrange airport transfer, and car rental. Although a car is not necessary -- taxis are available and buses run frequently from the main intersection -- a car will definitely facilitate a fuller appreciation of the island.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I live in beautiful Ontario, Canada and try to visit Grenada as often as possible. I love the very different plant and animal life here and the Caribbean. I love the lushness of Grenada, and I especially love mangoes!

Why the Owner Chose Saint David, Grenada:
I've traveled a great deal, and I like most places I visit, but right away I knew Grenada was special. I saw Amaryllis House while on a nature walk and contacted the owner. We became friends, and when the time was right, she sold it to me. I've been very happy there.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Canada has a long tradition of going to summer cottages on northern lakes. I like the relaxed, low-tech experience of the natural world. Amaryllis House offers the same cottage feeling, except it is in the tropics. I love the sounds and scents...and I don't mind the bugs!
