|Minimum Stay||5 nights|
Open plan kitchen and living area, with double aspect folding doors that open onto the villa's balcony to reveal the spectacular views over Hillsborough bay and the smaller islands beyond. Two good sized double bedrooms each with ensuite shower rooms lead off the living area. The bedrooms and living space have overhead fans and being located on the side of a hill, there is always a pleasant sea breeze to keep you cool.
Hot water by solar heating is available in bathrooms & kitchen.
The villa lies on a quiet private road, with very little passing traffic. Views of the sea, smaller islands and distant hills are absolutely stunning. The villa has both telephone and internet (broadband) connections. The swimming pool, beside the villa, is one of the largest on the island (40ft x 20ft) with loungers and canopy for guest use. A car/jeep rental is recommended to visit the town, see the island and reach a wide range of restaurants or bars in the evening.
I am a retired English businessman. Having discovered Carriacou, while on holiday about 12 years ago, I bought a villa plus the adjacent plot of land and built another 2 storey villa and a 40ft swimming pool. I spend 1 to 2 months out there every year, to avoid the English winter. The new villa is available to let for 12 months of the year.
Chris Simpson purchased this apartment in 2005
I enjoyed my time on Carriacou so much that I decided to buy a property, which I
still own, beside the Villa that I now let. The island has all that I look for now in a
holiday. The people are very friendly and I have made very many friends since I
first came here, I know people all over the island and can advise visitors where to
go and who to ask for help, whether the are looking for a boat trip or need a doctor.
Hummingbird Villa has one of the largest pools on the island (40ft x 20ft) and like the villa
balcony, has a fantastic view over Hillsborough bay, the Caribbean sea and three
small islands off the main land. The sunsets are crying out to be photographed and
although it is 28C the breeze up on Cherry Hill is like air conditioning. If you want
a peaceful holiday away from it all. This is your island.
A couple of small beaches are in walking distance (15 mins)
A good sized beach (beside the town - Hillsborough) is 7 mins by car.
The largest beach (very safe for small children) is 15 mins by car.
Being a small island, it's never far from a beach, of which there are too many to
Direct flights to Grenada, several days per week.
