Hibiscus Villa is a luxurious newish (2009) home designed to enjoy Caribbean living inside and out in lovely, unspoiled Grenada. The villa is beautifully designed and furnished with tropical-style décor and architecture. Outside, the villa has spacious terraces and a large saline pool. Spectacular views of the ocean, bay and mountains can be seen inside and out. Guests at Hibiscus Villa can enjoy relaxed, luxurious Caribbean living in their own private villa.
Hibiscus Villa is ideal for groups, families, couples and honeymooners – private and romantic.
Hibiscus Villa’s main floor has a large, open living area with three sets of French doors open to the terrace, allowing guests to enjoy the spectacular views right from the villa. As the owner’s hobby is gourmet cooking, the spacious kitchen is well outfitted. A dining table seats eight.
There are two master bedrooms, each with a king bed and French doors opening to its own deck to enjoy the beautiful views, and at opposite ends of the house for privacy. The third bedroom has a queen bed. All three bedrooms have a full private bath, ceiling fan, and a.c., and are upstairs from the living area – private and quiet. A day bed and trundle in the study provides additional beds for older children or smaller adults.
Hibiscus Villa has a spacious outdoor terrace of lovely coral stone with a large (32’) saline pool, both sunny and shaded areas, and privacy from neighbors. It is comfortably furnished with teak outdoor furniture – a dining table for six, comfortable lounge chairs, and six chaise lounges. On the outdoor terrace guests can laze in the sun, read in the shade, swim in the pool, dine, and have cocktails – all while overlooking spectacular views of the ocean, bay and mountains.
The grounds are beautifully landscaped with a profusion of tropical flowering plants, bushes and trees, including 8 kinds of palms.
Hibiscus Villa is the perfect place to enjoy an easy, relaxed vacation or as a base to easily see and enjoy the unspoiled beauty of Grenada.
Mary Halloran & Marc Davies, Pennsylvania USA We rented many villas before building Hibiscus Villa, and took the best ideas from all when we designed, built and outfitted the villa (finished in Summer, 2009). We wanted a house that looked and felt like it was in the Caribbean, not an American beach house put in the Caribbean. People live outdoors in the Caribbean. So we have French doors open to the terrace and decks, casement windows and louvers opened to the sea breezes. The spacious outdoor terrace and pool are just outside the living area so life flows easily from outside to inside. Even the sound system has outdoor speakers. And with the beautiful gardens the villa is named for, it’s like living in the middle of a tropical botanical garden. We also wanted guests’, and our own, needs to be met in great detail. After all, you are on vacation when you are at Hibiscus Villa. So it’s well-outfitted with everything we could think of, from entertainment to cooking utensils to working in a home office to luxury bed linens and towels. We think you will enjoy life at Hibiscus Villa in Grenada as much as we do.
The Owner purchased this house in 2009
A friend who used to sail a lot in the Caribbean told us for many years other sailors told him he really should visit Grenada. When he finally did, he promptly bought land there. We understand that love for the island - we also fell in love with it and bought land on our first visit there. Grenada is a kind and gentle island with warm, friendly people. Described as “unspoiled”, there are no casinos, no high rises, and a quiet nightlife. It has amazing natural beauty of mountains and waterfalls, volcanic crater lakes and lush tropical landscapes. Of course, it also has the beautiful white sand beaches with calm waters that people desire in the Caribbean. And for us foodies - many good restaurants. We may not want to gamble, but we like to eat well! And if we were going to own a house in the Caribbean, we wanted an English-speaking island, a safer one, and a lush, beautiful one. We have all that in Grenada. Hibiscus Villa is located in Fort Jeudy, a peninsula on Grenada’s southern coast that is known for its beautiful homes, lovely views, and ocean breezes. Grenada is the most southerly of the Windward Islands, near Barbados and Trinidad. Formerly a British colony, having gained independence in 1975, Grenada is now a member of the British Commonwealth, like Canada and Australia. Its currency is the Eastern Caribbean dollar, pegged at a fixed rate to the U.S. dollar.
We love to laze on the terrace and enjoy the beautiful views of the ocean, bay and mountains with either a glass of wine or coffee in our hand. We also like to go for walks around the neighborhood - it's quiet, safe and lovely. For early risers, the sunrises are spectacular. In the afternoon we snorkel on the beach nearby or swim in the pool. While there is lots to do in Grenada, we find it hard to tear ourselves away from relaxing in the villa and enjoying the spectacular views.
We just returned from 10 magical days in Grenada. Hibiscus Villa is beautiful inside and out!! Best equipped kitchen we have ever experienced in all our travels, beds are very comfy too!! The gardens, the pool and the incredible sea breezes are heaven!! Mary you did an incredible job on designing and furnishing Hibiscus Villa. This was our second vacation to Grenada so we did alot of exploring the island (300 miles on the rental car) we also did some diving and enjoyed several local restaurants. Already planning our next trip to this island paradise!!
Hibiscus Villa was the perfect jumping off point for the Grenada adventure our family of four took June 11-18. The gorgeous grounds, chirping birds, cool breezes and refreshing pool were just what we needed to begin and end each day in this unique and authentic country. The house itself was very comfortable; our 16 year old and 18 year old each got their own bedroom and bathroom so they were thrilled. Beds were comfy, linens were perfect and the kitchen was well-equipped. Owner Mary was fabulously helpful, the property manager, her assistant, housekeeper Beverly, and our driver from the airport to the villa were all wonderfully informative and offered assistance, restaurant suggestions, tour advice and bookings, produce, really anything we needed. Coolers, beach bags and ice packs were even provided! There are plenty of things to see and do in Grenada, from snorkeling at the many gorgeous beaches, to touring a chocolate plantation, to seeing a leatherback turtle laying eggs, to hiking Grand Etang Nature Preserve and the Seven Sisters Waterfalls, to stand up paddle boarding, to touring St. George's University, and shopping in and around St. George's. We did it all! Grenada is now my favorite Caribbean island, and Hibiscus Villa is an excellent lodging choice, as it puts you in a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the ocean breezes up on Fort Jeudy's bluffs while being centrally located to drive into town or into the center of the island for Grand Etang, or up the eastern coast for Bathway beach, turtle watching and the chocolate plantation. Thank you, Mary, for allowing us to enjoy your vacation home!
We've been visiting Grenada for years and years, usually staying at decent hotels and pretty modest house rentals. This year we have found our perfect Grenada home. Mary, the owner, has done an incredible job planning, designing and building Hibiscus Villa. The house had everything we look for when staying in Grenada....great private location on Fort Jeudy, constant breeze to keep away the bothersome mosquitos, fabulous views, wonderful sitting areas in the shade, a "gourmet" kitchen, deliciously comfortable beds and.....the incredible pool! Couldn't ask for anything more!!!
Thank you Mary!
This villa is wonderful in every way. The layout of the home was well planed. There is shade, (if desired) from morning until night outside where you can enjoy the great view and pool area. The location and design of the home on the property makes it extreamly private. The breeze keeps the whole home cool and comfortable, we did not need the A/C. The home was built with quality materials and craftsmanship. The landscaping around the villa is professional and well maintained. This villa has a extremely well equipped kitchen and very comfortable beds and furniture to make you feel like your home. I walked a hour each morning through out the community feeling absolutely comfortable and safe. I made a few friends with my dog biscuits and had wagging tails as I passed each AM.
My wife and I have stayed in a different VRBO each on a different Caribbean Island for the past 9 years. This villa was the best equipped, most comfortable, best designed home by far. The staff is extremely eager to help in any way. The communication with the owner on the front side was always prompt and helpful. There were recommendation's on car rental, tours guides if desired, what we needed to bring....and just as important what we did not need to bring. BTW, the owner also called a day or two after we arrived to be sure everything was OK and if we needed anything....Wow. (Only one other time did a owner follow up to see if things were in order.)
There are many places to explore, things to taste, experiences awaiting. Grenada is a very special place and unique. The people of Grenada are extremely genuine and sincere. We hired a driver for "Fish Friday" & a tour of the island. George & Mike took good care of us, extremely knowledgeable and very fairly priced. We left believing we really got to know their island from the time we spent with them both. We would highly recommend them for a tour if your looking to learn more about the culture, history, plants, geography, etc of Grenada. Virtually everyone we talked with - at dinner, casual conversations, roadside BBQ, on the beach, at the market, asking for directions, etc was a absolute joy. It is a remarkable island that we will visit again.
Congrat's to the owner for building a first class villa and managing it in such professional manor.
Ace's across the board.
My husband and I felt so welcomed, comfortable and at home at Hibiscus Villa; we just completed a 2 week stay at this lovely, well-maintained/loved and perfectly located home. The views, open-air living between interior and patio/pool area was perfect. We had no problem at all with biting insects or any other undesirables. Very private yet safely located in a neighborhood that is friendly and helpful for visitors. I walk a lot and met folks who were warm and welcoming, from the service people that maintain the properties to the residents themselves. A walk to Fort Jeudy Point at sunset is a must and the tiny beach at the end of the road is delightful for a private moment/swim. The pickup at the airport (12 midnight after a plane malfunction) was prompt and the house manager met us at the villa at that outrageous hour to show us the details. Our rental car from Y & R Rentals delivered the car at 9:00AM the next morning. While driving is not for the weak-kneed in Grenada, a car offers the flexibility to appreciate the wonderment of Grenada. So beautiful in its environment and its inhabitants. Grenadiens are warm, helpful and most of all genuine; but they do not "cater" to us tourists, we blend into their culture and life style; how refreshing we found that after experiencing the more touristy islands. The food is delightful and varied.
Lastly, the rental process was so efficient. One deals directly with Mary, the builder/owner of Hibiscus Villa. She is responsive, wide-ranging in her knowledge of Grenada and travel issues and very accommodating. Booking and experiencing this villa was exceptionally easy with her involvement.
Bottom line...we loved Grenada and we absolutely recommend HV. Given the other reviews like ours, one should probably book early! Thank you Mary and Marc.
Dream vacation. July 30 to aug 18 . Frist time out Canada and this villa was more then what one family could ask for, beautiful layout, outdoor living, pool, the garden for taking nice picture, nearby beaches and a taxi next door. Thank you Mary, will done.
Sorry it took so long to post but we rented this villa for 3 weeks from July to late Aug. it all started with my wife wanting to go back home (she is from Grenada ) and as not been back for 21 years. I found Mary throw VRBO and what an awesome woman to work with from the time of first e mail to the last and even 1 week into our trip she called the villa to make sure ever thing is going good. By being close to the ocean the breeze in the evening was great it kept the bugs down and the villa cool. I do recommend a rental car because the villa is a 15 min walk in from the main road which I walk most of the time because I loved the view and was just a nice walk. I even got to ride on their bus service that takes you downtown the people were so friendly. When snorking which was great me and my daughter were swimming with the fish and seen the underwater statues, the boat staff where awesome. Took a trip around the island which was awesome got to see lots of stuff from the waterfall, having a monkey on my shoulder and the beaches which they have lots. The food there is to die for man can they cook, wow.
So if you are planning a trip to Grenada for some family fun time and you like your space where you can do as if you are living in your own house, this villa is the spot will lite up, very clean, and as everything you would need in a kitchen, I would give this villa and the people that own it 9 stars out of 10.
Thank you Mary again for everything
