Situated In Bathway With Amazing Uninterupted Sea And Island Views
About JANE Munro
Denis and I have been in the process of relocating to Grenada since 2013, building and designing our own house, and are nearing completion. Denis was born here but moved to the UK aged 14 years. We have been married for 25 years and have 3 beautiful(now grown up children). We have loved following our dream life here, meeting new friends and adapting to a very different but amazing lifestyle. We are both friendly and love to socialise, Denis being much quieter and reserved than me!! Denis worked as a surveyor , and I worked within social work, but now Denis does Project management and I have started recently within real estate. However we would love to welcome you to our Island and hope to make your stay here as relaxed and fulfilled as we are on this paradise Island in the sun.
JANE Munro purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why JANE Munro chose Saint Patrick
It has always been a dream for Denis to build his own house, something that would not have been financially possible in the UK. In such a fabulous location, we are truly blessed to have been able to follow our dreams.

Comfortable stay with a fantastic view!
We decided to stay at The Glass House on the north east side of the island to get away from the busier, more touristy south end of the island. There is plenty to do in the north and we really enjoyed our stay. The Glass House overlooks Bathway Beach, but the swimming area, behind a reef, is just a few minutes walk down the road (the water was lovely). The apartment is very comfortable - the bedroom is separate from the living/dining/kitchen area. The kitchen is well-appointed and easy to cook in. The bathroom is large and you will be able to enjoy a warm/hot shower. We really enjoyed dining on the front porch overlooking Bathway Beach. It was very special. Our hosts were amazing as well - always helpful and caring. In fact, thanks to our host's efforts, we were able to attend a World Cup cricket match (and he drove us there and back! Just amazing).
Many thanks for choosing to stay at the Glass House. So sorry I didn't get to meet you, Denis said you were great guests. Do come again
BEST. ACCOMMODATION. EVER.
From the moment we met Jane and Denis in person, we knew the property as presented would be the real deal. And it was. What an extraordinary treat to have such a clean, comfortable and private spot with open doors and windows right on the wild Atlantic Ocean! We had everything we needed and took full advantage of the natural beauty surroundings, as well as heir two friendly dogs. Jane and Denis offered rides to wherever they were going, should we want to go with and then, hike on our own or get groceries, etc. We didn’t rent a car and got along fine riding public buses and meeting warm, wonderful Grenadians along our travels. They even took us to the Hash, a 5K walk/run that is known as big fun in Grenada. We had a blast!
We’d stay here again—without hesitation—and plan to tell all of our families and friends about this gem! If you’re even remotely thinking about this property, just DO IT! You won’t regret it even a little.
Jane and Denis, thank you again for your warm hospitality and friendship, and we hope to meet you somewhere again soon.

Quiet and restful, with a little spice
We began our Grenadian adventure at an apartment attached to the home of Denis and Jane Munro, located in a beautiful and quiet area, an hour or so from the busy tourist centers in Grenada's southwest. Lovingly built on a hill overlooking the Atlantic, the views were gorgeous, furnishings comfy, resident dogs friendly, and the best swimming beach just a short walk away. Because we did not want to rent a car after a long day of travel from Maryland, they picked us up at the airport and brought along an insulated bag so we could stop at a local grocery store and pick up a few provisions before heading north. That made our first day so much easier, and very enjoyable as we took in the countryside and got many helpful tips from our "tour guides." Denis and Jane also accompanied us on a walk to Bathway Beach that evening where we could grab an inexpensive fish or chicken dinner from one of several side-by-side snack shops and participate in the Monday after Easter celebrations of Grenadian residents--a national holiday. It was an unexpected plunge into Grenadian life, and our hosts' help in navigating food and beverage choices and the walk in the dark was most appreciated. Jane also made reservations for us with the local conservation group that leads night time expeditions to see leatherback turtles nesting on the protected beach of Levera National Park, also a short drive or healthy walk from their home. Seeing the massive female laboring to nest and cover her eggs was a rare gift.
The only thing that would make this location better for us would be to have island bus service stop in front of their house, although Jane did give us a ride to the nearest town where we could pick up the bus to Grenville, and she and Denis did seem quite willing to help in that way. We were also told that bus drivers could be coaxed into bringing us to their doorstep on the return ride for a small additional fee. That vibrant mix of color and pulsating music inside the bus was definitely the spice for this part of the trip.
We felt privileged to see more of the "real Grenada" in this area, and would be delighted to return here.
Many thanks for choosing to stay with us. Great review and some useful tips for future. Do come again!!
Steps from the beach, a spotless accommodation , and charming host.
5 minutes walk to the supervised beach, food vendors, picnic tables, bathrooms.
Thanks for the great review and choosing to stay with us. Do come again!!
Couldn't be happier
My wife an I just returned from Grenada. This apartment is a gem. It is an easy walk to the beach and has expansive ocean views from the deck. Jane, the owner, is welcoming and helpful with directions and local information. That said, the location may not be everyone's cup of tea. If you are looking for nightlife and a wide selection of restaurants, stay closer to St. Georges. However, it you want to explore, see nesting leather-back turtles, be the only people on a pristine beach with pounding surf -- this apartment cannot be beat at any price.
Many thanks for choosing to stay at The Glass House. We are so glad that you had a lovely time, it was clearly evident from the smiles on your faces how much you enjoyed staying in the North!! Thanks for leaving the apartment super clean, always appreciated We loved having you and getting to know you both. Do come again, there is still so much to see, and I have a strong feeling you will !!
A totally different side to the island!
We stayed one week at "The Glass House." Jane and Dennis have built a wonderful home with an apartment to share with people like us, wanderers in search of unique experiences. The unit is exactly as described. The private, new and modern apartment which is on the first level of their home was beautifully clean and well appointed. We were greeted with a basket of fresh citrus fruit and local spices and a pitcher of freshly made local juice. A nice touch! They do not have air-conditioning (we really didn't need it in February) but will provide fans if needed. The furniture was comfortable, the location quiet except for the ever present sound of the pounding surf. We did not rent a vehicle for our stay, choosing to use the local transit (10 minute walk to the bus stop) which was efficient and inexpensive. They offer to pick up and deliver back to the airport for a fee (the going rate). What a bonus! They also let us know whenever they were heading off somewhere, offering to give us a lift. If you want to see another side of Grenada, do your exploring from "The Glass House." Thank you Jane and Dennis for a lovely stay.
Thank-you so much for a lovely review. We really enjoyed having you as guests and seeing you make the most of this beautiful Island. The North has so much more to offer travellers that want to escape the hustle and bustle of living in the city/town. As you suggested we are looking into a ceiling fan for those rarer less windy days that we have later on the year, although still trying to find one that will stand up to the sea blast that rusts everything and has a knack of ending the life of electrical appliances in record time!!
Do please come again one day!!
