Lovely condo in wondeful location!

We enjoyed our stay at Mahogany Run. It is a delightful little condo, very quiet and peaceful. It is not large, but has a lovely outdoor sheltered sitting area, additional deck with table and chairs and a nice chaise. There is also a lovely garden that I really enjoyed. Decor outside was just wonderful, it was a delight to sit there after a day at the beach. It is on a hillside, and it is necessary to walk a bit downhill to beautiful Morne Rouge beach. Of course, remember that the return walk is up. We are in our late 60's but did not find this too objectionable. We enjoyed the boutique Kalinago Hotel right next door. We were able to use their beach lounges and ate at the beach bar and the Fedelis Restaurant a few times. Food was very good. Bed was comfortable, and baths seemed to be recently remodeled and were quite nice. I agree with another review, no matter how I tried, the bathroom floor got a bit wet. Kitchen was sufficient for our needs, but we really did not do any food preparation there. A microwave would be a welcome addition. We bought cereal and drinks but ate most meals out. I agree with another post that the condo is a bit dark and needs more light. I found it hard to put on makeup. Perhaps the addition of a bright desk light in the master bedroom would help. Coffee pots were hilarious, but they did the trick! Bikes and kayaks were provided, but there was no way we would bike those hills!! Wonderful location! We walked to the mall, and Grand Anse Beach. Short affordable taxi drives to great restaurants, Aquarium, the Beach House, and the Flamboyant Restaurant. Also close to St. George by taxi or walk to mall and catch the bus. It's a real stitch! Absloutely loved Grenada, better than we ever expected! Do take the bus at least a little, a real taste of the island. We took it around the whole island! And get to the rain forest, we did the Seven Sisters hike with Mandoo Tours....wonderful! Mandoo is very professional and I recommend him highly. Oh, and Adris was just wonderful, but she does not work on Saturday or Sunday. She kept things clean and tidy. It is a 2 bedroom condo, but my husband and I agreed we would have been cramped with 2 more people. Caution: Boulanjerie at the mall does not take credit cards. Also, a phone is provided, but you must buy your own minutes. When we arrived, it was unusable. Luckily Adris got minutes put on for us with the help of her two very polite sons! They knew more than the rest of us!
Owner's Response: thank you for the review.We are so glad you enjoyed Grenada and Mahogany Run .Sorry you were missing a couple of side lamps never known it happen before but two got broken recently and impossible to replace in Grenada....so once again adding to the list to ship over !!
We could not work out why our coffee machines are hilarious until we realised they are cafetieres and perculators;I suppose very European !Nobody has commented before but will take on board and sort out a filter or cappuccino machine .
So glad you enjoyed the garden this was redesigned recently by Albert St Bernard.Flower lovers can see him each year at the Chelsea flower show on the Grenadian stand which he helps to build ....usually wins a gold !
I take on board your comments about probably being a bit cosy for four people but I can honestly say we have families and two couples staying here all the time with no complaints some return again and again .
Finally Adris has been with us since we bought number 4 and works like a trouper looking after our guests but even she deserves some time off !
