TWO BAYS BEACHSIDE STUDIO

Special Offer! WAS $1330 - NOW $798 April 13 - May 4

Saint Andrew District Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Villa & 2 independent large Studios + infinity pool sleep 2 persons each

On a headland in a natural setting and with stunning views over ocean and beaches, Two Bays has an infinity swimming pool and sun terrace overlooking Crochu Bay and gardens.

Elegant, romantic and comfortable, Two Bays Villa has a 100 ft. long shaded terrace wrapping itself around the Villa with swing seats. Deep enough to enjoy shade and relax to enjoy the fabulous views even when dining. It is private and not overlooked.

The Villa bedroom has a King Size 4 poster bed with net and opens onto the veranda with two 9ft. wide folding doors. The large Villa sitting room with a fully equipped kitchen at one end also has two 9 ft. wide folding doors with adjustable wooden louvers opening onto the same veranda, giving outdoor living when inside the Villa.

The breeze off the sea is assisted by large ceiling fans and optional A/C in the bedroom when necessary. Lie in your 4 poster bed and look at your view in privacy!

The two large and separate Studios (which can be rented separately or joined in with the Villa) have shaded 19 ft. terraces which are not overlooked and either Queen and King size (or 2 single) 4 poster beds. There are ceiling fans and optional A/C for when the ocean breezes are not doing their job. Each Studio is fully set up for self-catering.

Each Studio has 9 ft. wide openings with folding wooden doors. From Two Bays terraces, views to Cabier beach, Cabier & Crochu Bays and ocean can be enjoyed from swing seats. Beautiful Cabier beach is 100 yards away.

Two Bays is run and fully serviced by Cabier Ocean Lodge, which has a terrace restaurant and bar overlooking the ocean and a massage facility. You have full use of their facilities.

For anyone interested in the night sky Cabier is a must. On a clear night with little ambient light, thousands of stars fold round and over the top of the promontory. Lie on your back and wonder at the canopy of stars that surround you. At certain times of year major planets can be easily picked out and craters on the moon are clearly visible at stages of its growth. Lucky to be there with a full moon? Walk on Cabier’s white sand beach at low tide and be followed by a moon shadow.

Cabier beach is stunningly beautiful. It is how you imagine a Caribbean beach to be but often is not. Normally with hardly anyone on it; save a few local people come at the weekend or on major holidays, you can often have it virtually to yourself. With an offshore reef to protect the bay and beach, other than at the highest of tides, the water is normally as calm as in our photos and as clear. Perfect for swimming, as an alternative to the pool, with some snorkelling around the inner reef. Cabier Ocean Lodge supply beach chairs.

The whole beach is cleaned by the tide and the sand is really firm with an easy walk in to the sea. There is nothing behind the beach other than fields and cows with cattle egrets on them; and a distant view to the rain forest.

There are donkey safaris and walks along the headlands to other bays and individual tours to local attractions organised by Cabier Ocean Lodge.

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!

We had a wonderful time at Two Bays and Cabier.

  • Submitted: Dec 10, 2012

We had a wonderful time at Two Bays and Cabier. Cabier itself was delightful.

We loved spending time with Bruno and Iris who did everything they could and more to make our stay exceptional. The taxi pickup was waiting for our flight and got us to Cabier by 8:30 or so. The bumpy road to Cabier in the dark made us a little apprehensive but I know there isn't anything you can do about that.

The villa itself was clean and we arrived to find dinner,wine and beer waiting for us in the fridge. The rest of our week went by too fast. Bruno took us on one of the tours inspite of having a sprained ankle. We loved having him as our tour guide. We also enjoyed breakfast and dinner at Cabier almost everyday. Iris was extremely efficient and made all the arrangements we needed-booking our rainforest tour with pick up from Cabier, recommending a restaurant at St. George and arranging all our transportation. She even gave us sunscreen which we had forgotten!

We also appreciated how Cindy, Geico and Candell went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. They really cared for us while we were there.

I stayed at Two Bays in spring 2010.

  • Submitted: Dec 10, 2012
  • Stayed: Apr 2010
Though the villa and studios are fully equipped, with fabulous views and top of the range furnishings; we still chose to breakfast and dine most days 100 yards away at Cabier Ocean Lodge - where friendly, helpful staff and French cooking (with a Caribbean twist) gave us the freedom to explore this lovely island or just chill on the empty beach.

At night, we lay flat on our backs in the garden, star-gazing. This was definitely not from an excess of Iris' rum punches or Bruno's definitive lobster (bought from the fishermen the same morning); but for the sheer joy of seeing the tropical sky without unnecessary ambient light.

Grenada is laid back and welcoming. Cabier is an undiscovered treasure. Two Bays is a perfect, newly built hideaway with everything one needs for a relaxing holiday. We've booked again for next year.

I loved staying in the studio at Two Bays. The room was comfortable and charming. We walked all over the area, enjoyed the gorgeous unspoiled beach, and excellent breakfasts and dinners at the lodge. A truly carefree vacation on a beautiful island.

Beachside Studio

  • Submitted: Dec 10, 2012
  • Stayed: Feb 2012
Two Bays can be rented in total or split up to three units. We stayed in the Beachside Studio for sixteen days. Beachside was clean and well looked after with maid service daily. Views and wildlife from the balcony were superb. Wildlife included ospreys, humming birds, frigate birds, tropical mockingbird, to name a few and mongoose, frogs and toads.
Two Bays has all facilities for self-catering however having discovered the superb cooking of Bruno the chef at the Cabier Lodge, having arrived late on the first night we ate dinner at the Lodge the majority of the time.

The rainforest and waterfall day trip run by Bruno was an excellent day out, finding out about and being shown the wide variety of spices that are abundant on the island.

We stayed at Cabier for 8 days in March and we miss it so much! Grenada is, for sure, the best Caribbean island and if you are looking for a superb place still unspoiled by tourism you must go to Cabier. Nick, the owner, will help you with all kind of suggestions before your arrival and, do not doubt, your stay will be unforgettable. Thanks again Nick, hope to go back soon.

What to do in “Spice Island” Grenada:

Many of our guests find their day starts to fill up once they have had a swim in the warm sea, lie on a beach lounger, and sit on their veranda in one of the swing seats or around the pool reading a good book.

The more energetic can enjoy snorkelling in the sheltered waters round the headland or strolling along the paths that wind around the coast either guided or not.

Nature lovers can see pelicans, frigate birds, egrets, herons and the occasional osprey fishing as well as humming birds, doves and butterflies in the garden without stirring from their veranda. There are local knowledgeable guides who organise trips to the magnificent rainforest that covers much of central Grenada, to see waterfalls, beautiful flowers, birds, butterflies, monkeys.

Even though you are supposed to be really chilling out and winding down Cabier style (the locals call it limin’) - you may be tempted to do a little inter-island visiting using the hydrofoil up to the neighbouring Grenadine islands of Carriacou and Petite Martinique or perhaps a day on a catamaran sailing up the coast, or diving Grenada’s reefs, all of which can be organised by Cabier.

Perhaps have a day in St George's just wandering around the beautiful harbour with its shops, restaurants and market and taking in its history through its historic forts guarding the harbour.

Bruno at Cabier organises tours to the rainforest with waterfall swimming as well as to the other main attractions on the island, nutmeg plantations, cocoa estate at Belmont and the Seven Rivers Rum distillery – where they still use 18th century methods and a water wheel to produce their rum.

Carnival is the first week of August. It is colourful, noisy with bands and exuberant with hundreds of locals parading and dancing in bizarre costumes to loud Soca music around the harbour front with a day and night parade Midnight Mass watched by locals and visitors alike - and of course lots of local food and drink.

It is a stunningly beautiful island with friendly locals who like to chat. Hire a car (Cabier will arrange - minimum 3 days hire – delivered to Cabier or picked up at airport) and go and explore the spectacular interior and coasts. Shop in the markets for local produce to tempt you to cook and buy spices, which make great gifts.

Driving is not difficult in Grenada and most places of interest in Grenada are within a 1 – 2 hour drive.

Other Activities: Nesarest diving centre is 40 minutes away / Golf is 45 minutes away
