We are a late middle aged professional couple living in Central London in England.
We are property enthusiasts! We love restoring very old property that is run down and in need of alteration, rebuild, and refurbishment to a level of elegant comfort - it is a really enjoyable challenge for us. We have done this in London, and with holiday houses in France and the Canaries (visit www.hamiltonholidayhouses.com),
Two Bays at Cabier presented us with a unique challenge. We had never ever built from scratch before on what was very much a greenfield site!
We put all our experience of property rebuilding and renovation, and from what we had seen and experienced elsewhere in the world, into the design of the Villa and the two separate Studios.
Everything from wide opening folding doors to remove the barrier of outside/inside (Vietnam), to being able to lie in your four poster bed naked and enjoy the view (!), with deep covered verandas that you can relax on if you want some shade (Tobago) to name a couple.
We loved building Two Bays in such a special place and visit twice a year. When we are not there - it is available to you.
Nick Hamilton purchased this apartment in 2010
We have travelled extensively over the years, but for the Caribbean we have always come back to Grenada as our favourite Caribbean island. Why? Because the island is so beautiful and welcoming as well as relaxed with old world manners.
We have tried hard to find somewhere else to beat it since we both first visited. Coincidentally both separately - me hitching boats up the Caribbean travelling back from South America and my wife as a student in the USA – both in the late 60s / early 70s.
We both fell in love with the island and its people and returned many times since.
Why did we build Two Bays at Cabier?
We stayed at Cabier the first time in 2008 purely by chance. We were staggered how natural and beautiful it is when we woke up on the first morning and looked across Cabier bay.
A couple of days later floating in the water off Cabier beach my wife said - looking back at the promontory on which Two Bays now stands - 'if I was going to build anywhere in the world it would be there, but only if it would be looked after by Cabier Ocean Lodge and be attached to the hotel'.
At breakfast Cabier's hotel book revealed a plot for sale ...... the rest is history. Construction started in April 2009 and our first visitors arrived January 2010. Building and fitting out nearly 4000 miles away - that is whole other story! We added the infinity pool overlooking Crochu Bay in 2011.
We built Two Bays because we love beautiful Cabier, its sense of tranquillity, the natural environment and an amazing safe beach protected by the offshore reef with warm silky water and firm sand. All this with a warm welcome at Cabier Ocean Lodge (you become part of the 'Cabier family' during your stay) plus a bar and restaurant overlooking the ocean on your doorstep, it is a wonderful combination for a really relaxing holiday.
Do come and experience the magic, natural beauty and tranquillity of Cabier for yourself - we would like to share it with you!
We built Two Bays to be somewhere which would link to the natural environment as much as possible but still give those staying elegant comfort.
Both Villa and the Two Studios have their own deep shaded verandas which are private. The swing seats allow you to relax and gently rock to and fro looking at the stunning views from the elevated position on the promontory between Cabier and Crochu Bays.
If you want to sit inside then the 9ft wide opening folding doors allow you to be connected to the outside while inside. The hardwood doors have wooden adjustable louvers so that you can catch the breezes that are a feature of Cabier and Two Bays position. There are large ceiling fans and high ceilings to maximise the cooling comfort with A/C in the bedrooms if really needed.
The four poster beds are fully netted so the natural breezes can be enjoyed at night. All furniture and doors /windows are in sustainable hardwood.
The Villa and the two separate Studios each sleep two persons and are completely independent, but can be joined together for parties of 3 - 6 persons.
The infinity pool overlooking Crochu Bay and the ocean is completely private to Two Bays and has a sun terrace. Combined with Cabier beach, the pool and garden gives wonderful choices of what to do not very much on a very relaxed slow day!
