Anna purchased this villa in 2000
The location is perfect for your stay and is within minute walk of a calm beach, 5 minutes from True Blue Bay Resort with its laid back bar and excellent bayside restaurant and other local eateries in walking distance.World famous Grand Anse Beach, shopping, restaurants and groceries are only 5 minutes drive from the villa.
What makes the villa unique is that it provides the perfect level of service, relaxation, and luxury that every descending traveler seeks, It is also perfectly situated to catch those amazing Grenada sunrise and sunsets. Where most guests will spend their time is on the expansive outdoor areas and if you choose you can be pampered or just left alone.
with its close proximity to the airport and local beaches, True Blue Peninsula offers right combination of exclusivity and the convenience of benefit of being 5 minutes of just about any place I need to be in the area and within seconds of arriving you can totally unwind and watch the sunset over a rum punch, or curl up in one of the couches and catch up on reading that novel you can't seem to finish.
Where do I begin? From the moment we decided to stay at the Villa Amarillo to our departure, was an awesome 5 star experience! We were greeted at the airport by Shawn and then greeted at the Villa by Anna (the owner) and Ms. Maureen. A delicious dinner and wine awaited us. Anna is the perfect host. During our stay, we invited Anna over for an evening drink and conversation - she is like a new friend! She answers emails promptly and sometimes even anticipates your questions.
The Villa itself is true to the pictures and more. It is very well maintained and spotless! We went with our family of 5 (three university adult children). Each of our kids had their own room with a/c and ensuite bathroom. There is so much room in this villa to spread out and you can enjoy a view from every sitting area. You can be together but there is enough room to be separate if you want. Ms. Maureen is a gem! She is so efficient and so accommodating to any need that you might have. She even did our personal laundry - what a treat for me!
The Villa is near to everything. We could walk to True Blue Bay resort or drive to Grand Anse beach - we did rent a car for our vacation (which Anna arranged for us). We did it all from snorkelling (Eco-Dive), to scuba diving (Eco-Dive), to kayaking (Conservation Kayak), to visiting a Rum distillery, to beaching at La Sagesse beach, to hiking Concord Falls, to touring the west coast up to Grenville, to deep sea fishing with Gary. Anna also arranged for us to tour St. George's University Veterinarian School since our oldest daughter is studying to be a vet in the US. In between all our activity there was lots of time to lounge around the villa pool or just enjoy happy hour on the veranda. Some good restaurants - the Beach House, the Aquarium and Umbrellas.
Grenada is a beautiful and safe island to visit! Thank-you Anna for making Christmas and New Years 2014 a memorable one! Until we meet again......maybe in my rental home.
We have just got back from two weeks at Villa Amarillo. What can I say? It was an absolutely fantastic villa and the perfect location from which to explore Grenada. There are two bars within walking distance and you can organise sailing, snorkeling or scuba trips and spa treatments from True Blue which is probably a 5 minute walk from the Villa. There are also numerous picture perfect Caribbean beaches within a 10 / 15 minute drive. (You do need your own car here but driving around is easy).
The villa was large and spacious and had loads of different areas we could hang out depending on our mood and the time of the day. We went as a group of 6 adults and felt we had loads of space all the time. The bedrooms were all a good size and had a/c and comfy beds and the kitchen was well equipped. The photos don't really do the rooms justice. However, the BEST thing about the Villa was Miss Maureen! What an absolute star. She was so friendly and helpful yet gave us our space and would materialise from nowhere when there was anything to be done. Her cooking was great and gave us a real taste of home cooked Caribbean food whilst the villa was always clean and tidy.
Anna was so welcoming when we first arrived which gave us a great feeling from our first moment at the villa. She then left us to it but was very quick to reply to any emails when we had the odd query. We also have an excellent list of potential baby names courtesy of Anna! All in all the perfect villa owner.
We just returned from our second trip to Grenada, what a joy this island is, so lush and beautiful! We arrived in Grenada about 6:30pm by the time we got to the villa via a taxi arranged by Anna, but at our expense, it was dark, so it was nice to have him waiting at the airport for us. Anna was waiting for us at the villa greeting us with open arms, Maureen, the house keeper, had made a nice lasagna, salad, and wine, what a welcomed added surprise for us. Anna arranged for a SUV to rent, it was very nice, shawne brought it shortly after we arrived, The villa was just as Anna had promised us. Very comfortable, safe, and the pool area and views were perfect. With cross breezes there is no need for a/c in the living areas. Every room has a perfect outdoor area off it practically including the bdrms, the living area has very comfy sofas and a flat screen TV, we could not get the DVD player to work for us, no biggie probably something we were doing, ceiling fans everywhere, the bdrms have a/c, no TV/Cable, one king, rest queen or full beds, a bathroom off ea. All very nice. The pool area is enclosed and very private (unless Maureen is still there) absolutely spotless and beautifully landscaped, we loved it. There are steps in this villa for those of you that have issues with them. The grill is not a gas grill you will need charcoal, etc. Maureen is wonderful, she is there most every day from about 9-3, the pool man came once while we were there. We really like privacy and the villa to ourselves, we would leave for the day and Maureen was usually gone by the time we returned. Maureen is a very sweet lady and does a good job keeping the villa clean. She offered to fix our breakfast and left us fruit and banana bread for snacks. You get to park your rental inside of the gated courtyard area, safe. The villa is in a residential area there is a homes across the street from it, but nothing on three sides, there is an apartment connected to the villa, but you have the villa to yourself once Maureen is done for the day. You can usually hear steel drum music lofting up from the cove in the eve, joggers and dog walkers are usually out and about in the eve and may stir up the local dogs. One big plus is it's close to a really nice grocery store and the nicest beach on the island, airport is close and you do get some air traffic overhead, but nothing to be concerned about. Really enjoyed our stay and this villa. Anna was wonderful to us! Price was right.
My extended family and I stayed in Villa Amarillo over Christmas last year. There were three couples and one baby and the villa provided a perfect amount of space. The rooms are large and comfortable and well-appointed. Anna the owner was incredibly helpful with restaurant recommendations and travel tips. The villa itself is cool and airy, with large open spaces, good for families with small children. Maureen the housekeeper was a lovely presence and an excellent cook. If I had one criticism it would be that for the price the villa might have been kitted out a bit more conveniently for temporary visitors -- shampoo in the showers and a stocked pantry (i.e. cooking oil, spices, etc.) would have been helpful. But apart from that we had a lovely time and would definitely return in the future.
Villa Amarillo did not disappoint. The pictures and description are very accurate. The villa is centrally located and minutes from the University. The area is very safe with an Ambassadors residence across the street. I love to run and the running around the Villa is great and very safe. Maureen our housekeeper was amazing and nothing we asked her to do was too much. Anna the owner made sure that our stay was perfect and she will help you with everything from transportation to restaurant reservations. She is always just a phone call away. The Villa is perfect for large families or a family of 4 like us.
My family and I stayed here in January 2014. After being let down by our initial villa we came to stay here and were totally blown away by Anna's professionalism and hospitality. The villa is absolutely beautiful and the photos cannot seem to capture how fantastic it is, particularly the outside space and patio deck. Maureen, the housekeeper, looked after us throughout our stay. She made breakfast for us every morning and prepared dinner when we stayed in, which included local dishes such as roti, fishcakes, bakes, local juice and banana cake. It was a real treat having her there, and it meant that everyone could completely switch off and relax. The villa is decorated to a high standard and is exceptionally clean and comfortable. As frequent visitors to Grenada we will most definitely be back.
