Overview

About the property

Luxury 6,000sq. ft. 4 bed en-suite beachfront villa with pool, gazebo & sundeck.

Kingfisher is Grenada's premier beachfront villa, located on a delightful secluded white sand beach at the end of Turtle Back Drive in L' Anse Aux Epines, overlooking Mt. Hartman bay, it enjoys cooling breezes year round, facing the reef strewn Atlantic. Without doubt, Kingfisher is the best located beach front villa in exclusive L'Anse Aux Epines, ideal for couples or families with children. Elegantly designed and set in a beautiful tropical garden, it has a stunning 200' frontage, comprising six separate vaulted buildings connected by a purpleheart walkway, is furnished throughout in Lombok teak, comprises 4 en-suite air-conditioned bedrooms (2 master, 2 guest), pool, private plunge pool, enormous entertaining area (candlelit at night), modern designer kitchen, a lounge opening onto the pool, a Balinese gazebo, boat house with viewing area overlooking secluded beach ideal for all water-sports. 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!

Why Will King chose Lance aux Epines

We bought the land in late 1996, undeveloped and Kingfisher was built between 1999-2000. I have been visiting Grenada since 1992, and am a Grenadian Citizen.

Lovely spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

Gosh, we loved Kingfisher and loved Grenada.

Although not in the first flush of youth the villa is in a terrific location, beautifully equipped with masses of space for 8 guests. It's definitely equipped as home rather than a holiday let so has every convenience that's often lacking; comfy beds, great showers, endless kitchen appliances, beach towels & mats, interesting art work.

It's kept spotlessly clean by the gem that is Tessa, she'll also cook local food if you require.

Fiona, who manages the villa was on hand, although we didn't need here she rang regularly to check we were having a good time.

We ate out, had BBQs, climbed Mount Qua Qua, jumped in the waterfalls, sailed in the bays, snorkelled with turtles, went SCUBA diving and drank plenty of rum punch.

Wouldn't hesitate to fully recommend.

Thanks Will, hopefully we'll return.

Grenada is an amazing island its great to see that the economy is picking up and the island is busy and prospering.

Great things happening at Secret Harbour this venue is well worth a visit and its so close to the Villa.

Kingfisher Estate

  • 5 of 5

A group of four couples from Weatherby Lake MO, near Kansas City MO, USA enjoyed the Kingfisher Estate for 8 great days. The property was perfectly suited for us in that there were four very nice separate living units, each complete with a full bath or shower. The sleeping rooms were air conditioned. The common areas included a large kitchen and living room indoors and a covered dining area adjacent to a nice swimming pool. The property was modern, well equipped and well maintained. The management company reps were responsive, friendly and helpful. They arranged a driver for our group, Francis, who truly made the trip delightful. We were participating in the Grenada Yacht Week regatta so unfortunately did not have an opportunity to take full advantage of the property. The grounds were beautiful and the storage shed was stocked with all kinds of water toys we unfortunately did not have time to utilize. I highly recommend this property.

A truly amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

Kingfisher Villa is luxurious and delightful villa situated in the quiet residential area overlooking Mt. Hartman bay. The villa offers a great sense of privacy and has access to a private secluded beach; which the family enjoyed bathing in.

Equally as an avid angler, it too, offered great fishing (caught quite a few decent size snappers, especially in the evening). There is respectable size swimming pool to laze around in and a beautiful landscaped garden offering an array of exotic fruits (Julie mango, coconuts, sugar apple etc).The rooms were very spacious; all with luxuriously decorated en suite bathrooms. The master suite also had a safe, in which you can put all your valuables in.

The maid service is first class and keeps the villa very clean, replacing towels, soaps etc. The agent is fantastic too, very friendly and very helpful. The only thing to be mindful off is that you would need a car (which we hired) to get into the main town or Grand Anse area, so bear that in mine. Having said so, the walk into the main shopping area in Grand Anse, is possible, but would take you a good 30 minutes (I often did so when I wanted a bit of exercise). The Villa is also 10 minutes walk to Lance Aux Epines beach.

Overall we were very pleased with our stay and plan to go back to the villa again, in the near future.

We cannot recommend Kingfisher Villa highly enough

Beautiful location and villa.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kingfisher villa for 2 weeks and had a wonderful holiday. Kingfisher is in the perfect location for seclusion and only a 5 minute drive from all the amenities you will need. Plenty of lovely restaurants within easy reach. Kingfisher has everything you desire to make your stay perfect. All mod cons but still keeping the feeling of belonging in the Island. We enjoyed the pool and having the beach and the ocean at the bottom of the lovely garden. The kayaks available for our use were great fun. Grenada is beautiful, the sea , the beaches, the hills , the people and the list goes on. There is a 9 hole golf course which was a joy to play. Well kept and understated in the tourist literature. We played 5 times and would have played more had we realised earlier on how challenging and lovely it is. Very reasonably priced too. There is so much to see and do on the Island for all ages . Our youngest being 11 and our oldest being 88!

In our opinion Grenada is one of the finest Caribbean islands! Kingfisher was the perfect villa for our holiday.

I <3 Kingfisher

  • 5 of 5

I honestly cannot say enough good things about this amazing home – it was furnished with such taste, care and love by the owner. Everything was clean, pristine and stocked with thoughtful items (ie: beach towels, iPod speakers, cool wine bottle opener). We lacked for nothing! Each bedroom was private and beautifully decorated. Loved the comfy, canopy styled beds in bedrooms 1 & 3.

As a seasoned group of beach goers this house was truly PARADISE. With the early sunrise we woke up every morning to go kayaking then had breakfast on the rooftop of the boat house which was a perfect, serene way to start each day. Evenings at Kingfisher were very enjoyable – eating dinner outside in the gazebo while watching the beautiful yachts pass by was just a wonderful experience.

The grounds were meticulously designed and obviously well cared for – mature palm trees, beautiful flowers and fruit baring mango trees just to name a new of the many plants and trees that lined the property. The pool was very clean, not overly treated and always the perfect temperature. The kitchen was fun to cook in and had everything we needed to cook meals at the villa (ie: pots, pans, serving platters, cutlery, and more).

The restaurants on the island were terrific! The Beach House and La Luna were my personal favorites for dinner – great food, amazing views – would suggest going there on the early side so you can catch the sunset. I would also suggest heading to Aquarium for a late lunch. The beach it’s located on has nice waves and a wooded area that provides some shelter in the hot Caribbean sun. The locals we met were all so kind and we always felt safe while exploring the island. Be sure to check out the waterfalls and beautiful local beaches.

The owner and caretaker could not have been more accommodating. Having wireless internet at the villa was also very helpful so we could look up local attractions, restaurants and more without having to use our cellular data while traveling internationally.

If you plan to visit the villa I would suggest staying for two weeks, as there is so much to do. A week at Kingfisher was just not long enough and leaves me craving to go back again! This was my first time using Home Away and it was an incredible experience. Everything about this home was even better than it looks in the pictures (and it looks pretty good in the pictures!). HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommended! Don’t look any further, book your stay at Kingfisher today.
