If you are seeking Grenada's best luxury beachfront villa, Kingfisher must be your choice.


Kingfisher: A place to 'LIve, Love, Laugh': Owner Will King (founder of British men's shaving brand King of Shaves) was introduced to Grenada in 1992. In 1996, he discovered an acre and a half of prime beach front land was available, and with his then wife, bought the land. In 1999, Kingfisher was built (originally called Secret Cove, due to the proximity of Secret Harbour hotel, sadly now closed destined to be the site of Four Seasons Private Residences). King, a keen yachtsman and windsurfer fell in love with the location, due to its constant cooling breeze (ensuring mosquitoes were a rarity) and the fact he could enjoy fantastic windsurfing in Mt. Hartman bay. Between May 1999-Sept 2002 he kept his 45' yacht, 'Face to Ace IV' there and competed in Grenada Sailing Week, (winning his class in 2000). Originally wooded, the land was cleared and landscaped with mango, lemon & lime and a Flamboyant tree, and re-planted at the front with coconut palms. In 2004 a Balinese style gazebo was completed, along with a boat house.

Why stay at Kingfisher?: Kingfisher overlooks the ocean at the end of a quiet lane, Turtle Back Drive in exclusive L'Anse Aux Epines, the most sought after part of Grenada, within easy reach of every amenity, and the picturesque capital, St. Georges. Kingfisher is one of only a small handful of villas to have use of a safe, secluded white sand beach, the area being quite hilly. The proximity of the beach, nicknamed 'Secret Cove' should not be understated - the kids love it (it is super safe), but adults can enjoy watersports in safety - whether learning, or if advanced, can proceed out between the reefs that shelter the bay. Hog Island, a sleepy anchorage for world cruising folk is just a short RIB ride away, a little further is Clarke's bay and Calivigny islsnd, the brand new ultra luxury Balinese style boutique hotel now open with its own Perini Navi 173' yacht.. True Blue & Prickly Bay are a short ride away. L'Anse Aux Epines is deservedly the most popular area, and Kingfisher the best sited villa. Bar no

Bespoke: Fiona MacIntyre of FAS Villa Management will make sure if there are any problems, they are resolved speedily and to your satisfaction. Sandra, our Maid has been with us for over 3 years, and as you can see from the guest testimonies (12 five star reviews), takes great pride in her work. As Mr. King is in the business of exceeding customer expectations with his own business, so he carries on this objective with what is his home, when he is not in the UK. (Please, do not hesitate to contact owner for further details or website links).
NB. The villa is named Kingfisher as Will's son Cameron's middle name is Halcyon (Greek for Kingfisher) which refers to a bird fabled to breed about the time of the winter solstice in a nest floating on the sea and to charm the wind and waves so that the sea was then specially calm, hence the saying halcyon days!
