Saint George’s Villa Rental Photos and Description

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 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!

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

I &lt;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.

Paradise regained!

  • 5 of 5
I booked the villa about a year in advance to ensure we could have the dates we wanted as we were going for my parents golden wedding anniversary. There were 6 of us in our group.

Will, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful in advance, providing recomendations of where to go and what to see.

I also corresponded with Fiona, the local manager, beforehand to arrange hire cars, initial food and beer provsions and a few trips.

We are experienced travellers and all agreed this was our best holiday!

From the start, fiona looked after us really well, meeting us at th airport and taking us to the villa where she had got some supplies in. She also provided us with a great meal for the first night - cooked by he husband! She was really helpful throughtout our stay and a joy to deal with.

The villa was even better than described. beautifully laid out so each couple had privacy but with great central space - and as for the pagoda - i thought my Mum would never leave it!

The kitchen was briliantly equipped and we managed to make our own pina coladas and rum punches everynight and cook when wanted. loved eating outside then jumping in the pool to cool off.

Little thoughtful touches throughout such as sepearte pool towels and beach mats made it extra special. And we loved the sea kayaks!

We had a lovely maid everyday who kept the place as spotless as when we arrived and changed the linens. She also showed my husband the way to the carib factory shop which was even more welcomed!

Grenada is beautiful - very firendly people and without some of the edge you find on other islands. I can't think of anywhere better to enjoy it than Kingfisher.

I hope we can return someday.

Our Magical Honeymoon at Kingfisher

  • 5 of 5
Kingfisher is the perfect setting and as the holiday progressed we fell more in love with it. We flew with our 14 month son and our parents who came to help us look after him. We were greeted by Fiona who immediately made us feel at home. The bedrooms all have their own views and are spacious and have lovely bathrooms. There is a plunge pool inbetween bedroom one and two. Kingfisher is beautifully decorated and feels very homely. The Breeze House in the garden is a great hang out for the night and day when we needed to keep out of the sun. There is something for everyone of all ages to enjoy at Kingfisher. If you want you can relax and kick back in the hammock for some quiet time and enjoy the grounds or go canoeing, snorkelling, swimming or simply spot the birds and boats go by. We felt extremely lucky to have our own beach at the bottom of the garden and it was perfect for a little one for swimming. There are plenty of fantastic restaurants nearby and our favourite was BB's and also Aquarium for delicious Sunday bbq's. The kitchen is great for keen cooks and we also used the bbq for fish that we would catch in the day. The house is immaculate and clean and a great space for dinner parties and friends. We hired a car which is a must to explore the island. I have visited a lot of islands in the Carribean and Grenada is by far my favourite. The beaches and countryside are unspoilt and the people are very welcoming and gentle. We really didn't want to leave Kingfisher and had the holiday of a lifetime. We highly recommend this and would love to stay there again.

A perfect "away from it all" holiday

A perfect &#034;away from it all&#034; holiday
  • 5 of 5
I stayed at the Kingfisher Villa in October 2012, along with my wife, and other family members and friends, making a total party of 8.

Before our holiday we looked at all the photos on the web site showing what to expect when we arrived. However, as you would see if you were to book a holiday at this spectacular villa, none of the photographs do justice to the sheer outstanding natural beauty of the area surrounding the villa. First impressions on driving up the splendid drive, past beautifully laid out gardens did not disappoint; and upon entering the villa the sheer size and planning of the four separate bungalows was marvellous. The back garden, which is very large, and leads down to the beach is completely private and very well kept. All holiday, the “wow” factor did not leave us; from standing outside the dining area looking down to the beach, or from the beach looking up to the villa and the four separate bungalows. Also the view from the beach to the warm blue sea was truly amazing. There was so much space that, even in a party of eight people, we never felt we were crowded together.

The planning for guests is superb, we were met at the airport and driven to the villa, Sandra was there to take us round the villa and explain everything we needed to know. Also, if you would like to experience a Grenadian meal we would recommend Ann who looks after the villa. She came in one afternoon and, along with her daughter, put together a varied selection of marvellous dishes for us to enjoy in the evening.

This is a holiday we will always treasure the memories of; and I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending this as a perfect “away from it all” holiday.

Kingfisher Villa - The Holiday of a Lifetime!

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from the most amazing week at Kingfisher Villa in Grenada.

On arriving at the airport we were met and transferred to the villa which took around a 10 minute drive. We had organised car hire (which is definitely recommended for your stay) and this was waiting for us at the villa.

The villa comprises of 4 luxury bedrooms which was perfect for our family of 8. Bedroom 1 had a king size bed and overlooked the swimming pool and we will always remember the views from our bedroom of the sea and the wonderful gardens. Bedroom 1 shares a plunge pool (which our children loved!) with Bedroom 2. Bedroom 2, 3 and 4 all had double beds and were all excellently furnished.
Kingfisher Villa sits in landscaped grounds with its own swimming pool. Everything you could possibly need on holiday was provided at the villa including towels, toys for the children, a safe in the bedroom, both British and American plug sockets and even kayaks.

What to see -
There is a lot to see around the island and we drove around the island one day. Bear in mind that roads are quite winding and slow but we would definitely recommend driving around to see the attractions.
Grand Anse Beach - WOW - We have never experienced a beach like this before - absolutely amazing and we didnt stop taking photos all day. Remember your snorkel. There were a lot of sellers on the beach so make sure you take some money with you as we bought quite a few things!
Annadale Falls - Well worth a visit

Where to eat
There is a lot of choice of restaurants within a short drive but our favourites were:
Beach House Restaurant - This is located opposite the airport and we found this on our last night and was definitely our favourite meal and would love to eat there again. Go early on your holiday as you will want to eat there more than once. Reasonably priced and lots of choice.
Cave House Restaurant - Perfect for celebrations but slightly more expensive. A fantastic meal.
In the Villa - On one evening we were very lucky to have Anne the house maid cook for us and she worked hard all day cooking a delightful meal for us. I would definitely recommend.
Shops - There are two supermarkets quite close. There is a small shopping centre opposite Grand Anse Beach about a 10 minute drive away and we found the supermarket here to be best value for money with the most choice.

Kingfisher Villa in Grenada is perfect. We will always remember our holiday and would love to return one day!
