We are a Belgian family who is used to work and travel on the 5 continents. Our first visit to Grenada dates back to 1987! After visiting other quite busy Caribbean islands, it was a real surprise to discover a such paradise: the place was charming, and did not changed much since then. We bought Owl Cottage in 2011, after an active search of two years to find the best buy as a holiday and hide away house, in the same time able to be presented for rent for the lucky one's who want to share our choice: Grenada as a perfect holiday destination! In addition to our work and travels, we are also a sailing family, and L'Anse-aux-Epines is a fantastic harbour, where our sail boat dropped the anchor quite often since 2009.

Eric Poot purchased this cottage in 2011

St. George's, Grenada's capital, is the most picturesque in the Caribbean. Grenadians are welcoming people, and all over the place you will feel a special touch of true Caribbean character.

It is a friendly island, still untouched by the commercialism of mass tourism.

All stores and services at a few minutes drive.

Good airlines connections.

Nice beaches.

Rain forrest with water falls and bird life.

A large choice of sport activities.

Quiet and exciting in the same time.

True paradise !

Simple and efficient set-up, nice tropical garden, a fresh water pool for your convenience, and the beach at the bottom of the garden.

A spectacular view on the bay and its numerous yachts.

Nice picturesque sunset every day.

The house is on Holidays Rental / Home Away since long, and we have inherited from the former owner the same team to take care of the house, the garden and the swimming pool. They like their job, and know how to welcome and accomodate our guests from various horizons.

wonderful rental

  • 5 of 5
We spent 2 weeks over Christmas and New Year. This is well kept property - lovely gardens - very nice private pool and pool area. Exactly as it appears and is described. Gorgeous views over the bay. The privacy combined with a short walk to a powdery white sand beach was perfect. Several good restaurants are a short walk away for lunch or dinner. St. Georges is a short drive. Greta the housekeeper was a pleasure to have available and kept the house spotless. Highly recommended location if you want to relax and relieve stress. The rental experience, right from the owner through to accomodation and transportation to and from the airport, was first rate. Thank you Nerissa - we truly enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: John & Karen and their 12 year old son were delightful, caring tenants and we invite any other groups up to 4 in number to come and use our delightful, well maintained home from home - with a difference. Fantastic views, wonderful pool, spacious tropical garden. Our housekeeper, Greta is a gem and will make your holiday very special. Do not hesitate to book.
Discount for two guests sharing our main bedroom with twin or king size bed and en suite shower room. Enjoy the space of a two bedroom villa for just the two of you. Do not 'make do' with a tiny apartment or bed sit. You will be met at the airport and taken care of throughout your stay. Welcome to Grenada. Nerissa

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5
We have just recently returned from Grenada and our lovely holiday at Owl Cottage. Having spent years in the Caribbean as professional yacht crew it was great to have a "land perspective" and experience the luxury of being cared for by such a wonderful team. First and foremost, Greta (housekeeper extraordinaire) was absolutely wonderful. She was friendly but not obtrusive and so willing to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The gardener, Curtis, was also very considerate of our private time but was more than willing to answer our questions about the flora and fauna. Ashley was so very helpful in procuring a car, advise, directions, and anything else we needed. It was so nice to have someone waiting for us at the airport after a full day of travel. The cottage is exactly as pictured, and we could not have wanted for anything more. The view in the morning from the porch is unequaled. The chairs are so comfortable that you never want to move. We spent many hours with binoculars watching the birds and the yachts. The beach is right across the street and is beautiful to walk in the morning. The pool is surrounded by bright colorful flowers so when you take a swim its like swimming in a tropical garden. The outdoor shower was great after the beach, with a pretty view too!
We did a lot of exploring on the island; tropical rainforest (ask for Nequan who was an excellent waterfall guide) snorkeling, which can be arranged right down the beach at the Calabash hotel, hiking, sailing (Grand Anse Beach). The local market is a wonderful way to see and buy local produce. If you are not familiar with Caribbean markets they are not like our farmers markets in the States but worth the visit. We found almost all of the local people to be very friendly and helpful; avoid St. George when the cruise ships are in, its much nicer and calmer and the hawkers are less aggressive. We ate at some lovely restaurants, La Sageese is just wonderful. The cottage is well situated, close to restaurants (The Junction is very fun!) and a short drive into St. George. We traveled with our 16 year old daughter and she had a wonderful time. We all three felt very connected to the island, and were very sad to leave. Owl Cottage and Grenada are very special places on Earth.

FABULOUS OWL COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Spectacular view, perfect pool, short walk to beautiful beach, authentic Caribbean house...what more could you ask for!
We returned to Grenada after 20 years (too long) and Owl Cottage was a perfect fit for 4 of us. Sitting on the porch for breakfast and then evening cocktails, with the view over Prickly Bay...aaah.The beds were very comfortable, AC, a fan, and louvre windows for the breeze, large bathrooms, with good showers.
We were very impressed with the pool which has a 'stand on' ledge all around, plenty of patio furniture, lovely shade from a pergola and outdoor shower. Even though we travelled all over, I never saw a more beautiful property...the colors, textures and variety of the vegetation were exceptional.
Even though Grenada is more built up this area is non-touristy. L'Anse aux Epines beach is across the way and 20 years later the beach is still lovely and quiet.
Greta made calliloo and a pumpkin soup for us and we chatted about the island and food. Speaking of food...some eating adventures we had...Rhodes at Calabash is a splurge but you can walk along the beach to get there...
The Little Dipper is tiny, Grenadian and cheap with a spectacular view...Charcoal is near the cottage, great fish sandwich and they deliver...The Aquarium is in a fantasy setting on a lovely beach...Coconut Grill at night, tables in the sand, the sea just feet away. If you go just one place for the day, make it La Sagesse...great food and a charming cove beach.
Owl Cottage was quite a find. We loved it.

Owner's Response: We were very lucky to have such charming guests who were having a reunion. They were 4 ladies from various parts of America and obviously were well travelled with lots of places to compare to Owl Cottage and Grenada. Their review is typical of how most people feel about their holidays with us.

I was lucky to meet them for one day as I was still in Grenada when they arrived. This does not happen often. Welcome to other guests looking for a special holiday.

Owl Cottage in November 2010

  • 4 of 5
We spent a relaxing week in November at Owl Cottage. This well-kept home is the exact replica of its website counterpart. It is located in the L'Anse-aux-Epines residential area (versus in the hotel zone) with several nearby restaurants. The Calabash beach is located down the (quite steep) driveway and across the street. Our favorite part of the home (aside from the air conditioned bedrooms) was spending time on the large balcony overlooking Prickly Bay. Particularly attention-grabbing is watching (from the balcony) an American Airlines plane flying right over house around 7:30/8 a.m. Although we spent our days driving (car rental from Ashley Church/Sunshine Tours) around the Spice Island, we looked forward to returning “home” to the beautifully manicured lush gardens and the cool, chlorine-free swimming pool. There’s nothing quite like being in the pool overlooking the bay, sipping a cocktail waiting for the sunset. Spectacular!

Ashley Church is an excellent resource for getting around the Island. Driving in Grenada (especially navigating the narrow roads in the rainforest while driving on the left side) takes some getting used to, but well worth the scare or two we experienced. Make sure to ask Ashley about Magazine Beach and the Aquarium Restaurant.

Greta’s friendliness and eagerness to assist is unmatched. Although we did not ask Greta to prepare daily breakfast/lunch, she graciously agreed to cook some local cuisine—Calaloo soup, mashed white yam and lambi. She also prepared the Island’s holiday drink—sorrel. Needless to say, she kept the place spotless and offered to our laundry.

Owl Cottage is a great place to unwind with almost all the comforts of home—fully furnished kitchen (no dishwasher), telephone for local calls, broadband Internet, television (watch Channel 34—I think—for local guide) with cable/DVD player and CD player. Keep in mind that the home has several sets of stairs and does not have central air—AC only in the two bedrooms, which Greta shuts off during the daytime hours.

Owner's Response: We are so lucky with our guests and these were so nice to have in Owl Cottage. We do tend to switch the fans and a/c off when the guests are out as electricity costs a fortune here.
It takes no time at all to cool the bedrooms when you go in, and the fans make no difference to the air temperature if left on all day even!!! Fans just circulate the available air. The lounge is impossible to air condition as the house is built with open brick walls to allow the air flow through at all times. The open bricks are fully screened as are all the many windows and door onto the balcony, This means you can keep the big doors open at night with the screen doors closed, if you choose to watch TV.

We hope to see these guests again.

Owner's Response: These two ladies from UK enjoyed the facilities of a two bedroom home as they each wanted their own room. Although Owl Cottage sleeps 4 it is ideal for a couple, either sharing a bedroom at a discounted rate or, as Lesley and Jill
did, using both bedrooms. The space in a 'proper' home, as opposed to a 'bedsit', is such a joy whilst on holiday.

Greta, our housekeeper, and Ashley our Manager/car rental, both enjoy looking after guests as you see from the review.

Wonderful memories and holiday in 1978!

  • 5 of 5
To find Owl Cottage 32 years later on the internet is incredible. From the fireflies dancing around the balcony at night, the Iguana falling from the tree, Mary the maid, (who was priceless in every sense), racing the sunfish against the guests at the Calabash and drinking "Lime Squash" in The Red Crab" this was a most wonderful holiday for two couples.
After a revolution and the Hurricane decades ago it's wonderful to see Owl Cottage going from strength to strength with some excellent additions,
Wonderful memories.

Owner's Response: This review came 'out of the blue' 32 years after their visit!!
What long memories these guests have and obviously the holiday made a very good impression - as it does with everyone. Mary was our first maid and stayed over 7 years. Joy stayed 8 years and since then we are lucky to still have Greta who is a gem and looks after the house as if it were her own. She makes sure all guests have a memorable holiday.
Truly a good housekeeper is a blessing. Enjoy her on your visit.

Grenada is still as lush as ever and our garden is truly' tropical' and we have added a pool and air conditioning to the bedrooms.

There are still wonderful restaurants within easy walking distance and the beach is 'right there' in front of you. Grenada is still the unspoiled Isle of Spice.

It is only a short walk to the Calabash Hotel, along the beach. Also nearby, within 5 minutes walk, are 4 other restaurants including the renowned Red Crab and the Boat Yard at Prickly Bay Marina with happy hour, music nights and mini-market. Supermarkets, banks and the famous Grand Anse Beach are just 5 minutes drive away.

Additional information about rental rates

Notes Rates include pick up and drop from / to airport. We do not include the usual 10% service charge, so tipping our housekeeper Greta is appropriate if you are happy with her. Greta is a gem, and tries to make everyone's holiday special. Our views are truly spectacular. Although you are just by the beach, the swimming pool is "right there" to totally chill out by (under the shade provided if needed).
For summer, we offer 15% discount for two guests sharing one bedroom - use of whole of accommodation except second bedroom.
25% only to make your booking firm with balance 6 weeks before the date of travel. Grenada is VERY popular in the winter. Guests should plan early. From December through end of April - by far the best time to be away from Europe, most of USA and Canada - escape to the sun !

Notes:
Grenada (known as the Spice Island) is somewhere special for a holiday. The capital - St. George's, is the most picturesque in the Caribbean. It has Tropical Rain Forests with two Peaks of around 3,000ft. There are numerous Waterfalls, and many colourful tropical trees, flowers and shrubs. It is a friendly island with a charm and character of its own, and is still untouched by the commercialism of many of the other islands. Children under six to be watched carefully by parents (swiming pool, balconies). There is a 9-hole golf course nearby. Scuba diving, wind surfing, yacht charters and car hire are all available in the local area.
