From Two Bays’ position on the promontory, views to Crochu Bay and the ocean can be enjoyed from the swing seat and while you eat on your shaded veranda. There is direct access to the rear garden with the sun terrace and infinity pool overlooking Crochu Bay and Cabier beach is about a 100 yards away.

Two Bays, whilst privately owned, is run for us by Cabier Ocean Lodge about 100 yards away. It is a small hotel of 11 rooms plus Two Bays and guests staying at Two Bays enjoy the same facilities as all other Lodge guests. Two Bays is fully maid serviced and looked after by Cabier Ocean Lodge. Bayside Studio is connected to Cabier Ocean Lodge by internal telephone. There is free Wi-Fi access at Two Bays and a computer with internet access for the use of guests at Cabier Ocean Lodge as well as additional free Wi-Fi access.

The studio is fully equipped to self-cater or you can eat at Cabier Ocean Lodge restaurant who offer breakfast and dinner (and a light lunch if pre-booked), if you only want to partially self cater - or not self cater at all. You can just eat there when you feel like it or purchase on booking an inclusive package of combinations of breakfast, dinner and drinks. Please see our rates page.

It is a place to relax completely, to have that special holiday and enjoy your beautiful natural surroundings, watching the pelicans diving to catch fish, frigate birds circling around the entrance to the bays, with humming birds and doves coming in to feed in the garden.

In 2008 we came to Cabier by pure chance, fell in love with it and decided that if we were going to build a house anywhere in the world - it would be where Two Bays stands now. We finished building in January 2010. Words cannot really describe it so why not look at the photographs that do Two Bays and Cabier much more justice than words and visit our website by Googling “Hamilton Holiday Houses” - and then come and see to enjoy it for yourselves?

The Saint Andrew Parish region

Grenada: The Island has had a long history and a number of different owners over the years, but since

the late 1700’s up until independence in 1983 it was British.

A glance at St Georges will show many different types of architecture and unmistakably English churches

as well as old forts built by the then new owners.

It is the original “Spice Island” and large amount of the spices you will have in your kitchen come from Grenada – nutmeg, mace, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, to name but a few.

These are often grown locally and various fruits in season, pineapple, mangoes, watermelon,

prickly pears can also be purchased from local stalls and markets.

There is a fuller description of the island on our website, please use the link.

St Andrews parish: Two Bays and Cabier are situated in St Andrews parish.

There are six parishes in Grenada which constitute the local administrative regions.

The road to Grenville and Cabier winds out of St George’s area with hills on your left

and the blue sea on your right getting more rural as you head up the Eastern side of

the island.

A lot of people choose to live up at this level on this side of the island because of

the cooling breezes.

The hills become steeper as you follow the coast, and views of the distant rainforest

become closer as the road winds its way up through small villages, past grazing goats,

road side stalls, children walking to and from their local school and people waiting for

the minibus collectivo taxis . As you near the junction to Cabier the bottom of the rain

forest is reaching down to the road which is now several hundred feet above the sea

and about a mile inland.

This is very much a local rural area and the locals are very friendly (it is an old fashioned

island, still quite religious and outside the main towns very much based on local village life

– locals expect you to say good day if you encounter them walking or to wave) and this part

of the island has yet to be touched by tourism.

Grenville the local town is about 20 minutes away from Cabier and as described elsewhere

is a typical West Indian town.

Climate: The daytime temperatures are normally in the range of 26c – 30c degrees cooled by the almost constant breezes coming off the sea which are a feature of Cabier. Two Bays, some 60 – 70 feet above the sea, benefits from these most of the time. The sun is tropical (Grenada is 12 degrees North of the equator) so plenty of sun screen is the order of the day.

Weather: We find that there are common misconceptions about weather patterns in the Caribbean, especially in what has traditionally been called the “wet season” during June – November. First of all the timing and extent of the “wet season” depends on where you are in the West Indies. Secondly it depends on where you are in Grenada. Weather patterns with reliable rainy seasons have changed there too. These days you can even get showers in the “dry season” (December – April). But that is also why Grenada and the other southern Caribbean islands are 40 shades of green. When it does rain the one thing it does not do is drizzle all day, it normally goes in 30 minutes and it is warm, and it often rains at night rather than the day!

The high mountain range in the centre of the island- the rain forest - divides the island weather. We can have sunshine on the beach but can see rain up at 1500 - 3000 ft in the rain forest in the distance. It can rain in St Georges on the other side of the island – and not on Cabier. It can rain on the next headland and not on Cabier and vice-versa. If we get rain it tends to be brief and comes to us off the sea. You can see it coming about 45 minutes away from out to sea. It takes 5 minutes to get to Two Bays or the bar.

We have been there several times in August, seven weeks in total over the three years. It has rained heavily only twice, really heavily on and off for one day on our side of the island, but even then it stopped for several hours. We had a couple of days where it rained intermittently for about an hour several times - with brilliant sunshine in between. It also tends to rain in the night rather than the daytime. It dries in minutes. The season when it can be very wet is from early September through to mid-October - the” hurricane season” (Grenada has had 3 in 50 years) is also in this period. Hurricanes usually avoid Grenada as it is tucked into the Caribbean above Venezuela which is out of their usual path. Two Bays and Cabier Ocean Lodge closes to guests for maintenance during this period.

Insects: There are the usual insects that you would expect to find on a tropical island including mosquitoes. Two Bays position on the promontory and the sea breeze keeps a lot of them away, but you just need to take normal precautions and cover up at night. Our beds all have mosquito nets so you can sleep with the wooden louvres open if you wish.

Crochu

Getting around: Driving is on the left and is fairly easy. Day trips will take you to what you want to see on any part of the island. (you will need to purchase a temporary driving licence at the local police station – ECD$ 25 – take your green licence as well as your photo-card one). You can hire a jeep for a minimum of 3 days through Cabier Ocean Lodge.

Minibuses regularly travel along the coast road and are very cheap. They are the main means of transport for the locals. Just put your hand out and they will stop if they have room. They reach and connect to most parts of the island – rather quickly. There are direct services to St Georges and Grenville.

Walking: There is easy coastal walking along the headlands to neighbouring beaches – if you to want to take a hotel dog with you, one of them is usually game for “walkies”.

For those who are interested in more serious walking the Grenada rainforest is not far away with a wide range of walking trails, colourful flora and fauna, birds , as well as monkeys. The interior of the island is spectacular with vibrant colours, try counting the shades of green. Grand Etang lake and nature reserve is nearby with its gardens and troupes of monkeys. There are organised walking tours available in the rain forest.

Waterfall swimming: There are waterfalls with pools you can swim in, the nearest is Mount Carmel about 15 minutes away. In the centre of the island there is Annandale and Seven Sisters as well as Concorde Falls where the local boys “jumping association” will take a high plunge for you. You can also swim in the cool river water plunging down from the rain forest under the waterfall and climb behind it after you have looked at the beautiful plants and flowers growing around the falls.

Sight seeing: There are old rum distilleries and a chocolate plantation to visit up just up our coast, as well as the disused Pearls airfield, where you take a spin on the Cuban lengthened runway - and look at the Cuban Illuyshin aircraft stranded at the time of the American intervention in the 1980’s.

St Georges is reckoned to be the most beautiful harbour in the Caribbean. The old forts surrounding it give a wonderful view and a historical perspective to the islands history. Wander around the harbour on the Carenage and get lunch at either The New Nutmeg or BB’s overlooking the harbour.

Why not finish off the day with a cocktail standing in the water whilst watching the sun sink into the sea at BBC beach, which is just beyond the famous Grand Anse beach before driving back to Cabier?

Like seafood? – then apart from enjoying Bruno’s cooking at Cabier and one of his great lobster dinners, Gouave, which is one of the main fishing towns on the western coast, has “Fish Friday”. On Friday night the locals open up lots of stalls selling Caribbean food and seafood along with beer and a steel band.

Grenville is the old capital from the time of the French occupation of the island. Sitting on the sea shore it is a truly old style West Indian town with local shopping and a market as well as a fish market. It bustles. It has several banks as well as a post office and local restaurants – one of which over the supermarket and the water serves a wide selection of local food and soul food and is incredible value. For those needing a fix there is a KFC (the batter is spicier than at home) and a passable Chinese restaurant.

Shopping: St Georges and Grand Anse have a variety of shops selling local items. For food shopping there is our local town Grenville with a vibrant local market and small supermarkets and shops where you will be able to buy nearly everything you need to self cater. There is a baker in Crochu on the main road just up from Cabier and a small store at the cross roads that sells essentials (including drink). In St Georges there are supermarkets that sell a lot of UK/USA foods as well as local as they cater for the international and yachting communities.

Sailing: From January to March there are regattas in Grenada and neighbouring Carriacou. Day sailing trips are available as is the big game fishing. For anyone who fancies gently cruising through some of the 14 tiny islands that make up the Grenadines you can book Cabier’s Stay and Sail package that combines your stay at Two Bays with either 4 or 7 days on a yacht. Locally Cabier Ocean Lodge can organise boat trips around to other beaches.

Diving: The diving out of St George’s is excellent and we have a special arrangement with Scubatech at Prickly Bay near St Georges (30 minutes by car). If you visit their website www.scubatech-grenada.com they have excellent pictures of Grenada dive sites including wrecks and reefs.

Golf: There is a small golf course just outside St Georges.

Cricket: If you want to watch some local West Indian cricket then in season you may even find a village cricket match to watch. Crochu cricket club is just at the top of the road from Cabier and up to 200 people watch matches at the weekend with barbecues and beer. There are also festivals of cricket held in St Georges.

Carnival: This takes place in the first week of August over several days and is as much for the locals as the tourists in St George’s and much more orientated to the locals in villages such as St David’s (15 minute away), Grenville, and Sauteurs at the top of the island. With original and vibrant costumes, and lots and lots of loud music, it goes on over several days in St Georges including a late night parade around the harbour – “Midnight Mass”. Everyone is having fun and all are welcome.

Two Bays and Cabier is so relaxing that of course you may not actually do very much of this or at all! – still you can always save it up for when you come back!

“Couldn't be better”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2014

Location, facilities, people, food, beaches, rum etc, etc all fantastic. We stayed in a studio, wonderful views, very peaceful, very clean and all kitchen facilities. We caught or bought fish, cooked at home or on locals' grill down on the beach. Loved the pool, looking out over the stunning beach. Bruno is the soul of Cabier, his great personality, utterly charming, brilliant sense of humour and superb cooking (mahi mahi skewer lit at your table amazing, also lots of other dishes). How can he talk so many languages at equal speed to his own, making jokes all the time? The day trip he does of the island was brilliant, we did chocolate plantation (choc not my thing, thought I would have to endure this, it was fascinating), rum distillery (def my thing), nutmeg processing plant and waterfall (you jump off the cliff). Also the Hashes (country walks where you meet loads of people and see parts you never would otherwise) he can take you to are great fun. Try the souse (pigs trotters), yuck. The staff, especially Gaico (spelling?), Honest John and Gail were lovely, the guys will tell you where and how to fish and lots of local information. Shelley got involved with the petting zoo, helping out on a few mornings which she loved. And the dogs, especially Lassie. Iris was very caring when I hurt my foot and lights a mean skewer. A very special mention for Sophie, a french placement student, who made friends with Shelley and they did all the hashes together. A real treasure. Grenada is a very special place, very laid back and friendly. A bit of very low level hassle, but everyone ok when you just say no politely. More often people will offer tips about places to go, eat, fish etc. ALWAYS give people hitching a lift, they will tell you loads about local stuff, places etc. If you into fishing, there are the normal charters, about £500 a day. Or go to the fish market in Grenville (worth it just to see fish), ask for Chris, one of the women cutters, who will introduce you to one of the small boat skippers. This is hand-lining with the locals, we had 33 3-7lb tuna in about 3 hours. The deal was I paid for the gas, about £40, but the catch was so good, he only wanted £25. Saw my biggest Leatherback, even the guys were impressed and stopped the boat to watch. While in Grenville, go to the roti shop, £2.50 for a huge lambie (conch) roti, fantastic. Veg market round the back vg too. The underwater sculpture park is amazing. If you just turn up at Dragon Bay (great beach bar), Fresh will greet you and take you out in his rowing boat, show you the sights, about £15, well worth it. You can swim round for later trips if you have fins. Stunning snorkelling, barracuda (totally harmless, very inquisitive), lion fish unfortunately, but very beautiful, lobster, trumpet fish, the list is endless. The island rum at £5 a bottle is great, Iron Jack (70% abv) my very great favourite. Crochu (the village by Cabier) has a population of 900 and 75 rum shops. Our whole trip (except Virgin Atlantic on the way back) was one of the best holidays ever, so many memorable times and people. We will be going back.

“Wonderful Stay in the Real Carribean”

Reviewed 3 Mar 2014

We had a fantastic time and would not hesitate to return. You have done a great job in the design and setting of Two Bays. Sleeping with the shutters wide open with the sound of the ocean at night was so relaxing. The pool is great and ideally located. We enjoyed eating at Cabier and Iris and Bruno were really excellent. We also enjoyed cooking some meals in our studio. The information package you provided was complete and as a result we were prepared for our stay. The staff was great and the unit clean and comfortable. The other guests at Two Bays and Cabier all seem to be seeking the same thing - a great getaway in the non touristy Caribbean. That meant for some good conversations and outings. We will be back.

“Excellent-you have to go!”

Reviewed 25 May 2013

This was my third trip to Two Bays and the second time I stayed at Bayside. My friend stayed in Beachside and it was such fun to wander over in the mornings and sit on her verandah watching the waves break on the sandy beach below. I still prefer Bayside, I think, as my views were stupendous. Not much to choose between them though. The pool was a new addition since my last visit two years ago. It is an eternity pool and looked over my bay - wonderful. The gardens had developed nicely. The meals down at the hotel were delicious. We intended to eat in occasionally, but always ended up in the evenings with the old rum punch, three course dinner down at the hotel. We had a hire car trip over the middle of the island, and a couple of trips to St. George and yet I don't think we have scratched the surface of Grenada. Highly recommended.

Just to clarify - it is an infinity pool overlooking the sea and Crochu Bay.

“Unspoilt carribean paradise!”

Reviewed 9 Mar 2013

We had a lovely time staying in the beachside studio at Cabier ocean lodge. The studio was clean and comfortable and with the fan there was always a good breeze. We loved swimming before breakfast with only the donkeys on the beach, and Bruno and iris were great hosts. We enjoyed Bruno's cooking - had meant to self- cater but we ended up eating Bruno's food most nights - especially enjoyed the lobster evening! Bruno also took us on a great tour of the whole island. We were so glad to be staying at Cabier and not on the fashionable west coast of Grenada - we were far away from the cruise ships and all inclusive hotels. I think the essential thing at Cabier is to have a jeep because otherwise you might be a bit stuck there and it is fun to explore!

“Tranquille, relaxing, beautiful setting the 1st class villa and pool”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2012

Amazing place to stay with stunning views over the Atlantic sea. No other tourists around on which seems to be your own private beach. A place to go if your enjoy piece and quite, wild birds and travelling around to explore. Villa set to high standard and very comfy inside and out for relaxing. Great pool which adds the finishing touch to this property.

“A great location and place to stay”

Reviewed 22 Dec 2011

We stayed in one of the two Two Bays studios. What a great location, set out of the way on a small peninsular with a guest house called Cabier, within 100 mtrs. This guest house, run by Iris and Bruno, manage the studios and provided wifi access. We intended to self cater but having eaten at Cabier on the first night we continued throughout our stay. Bruno is French and his cooking was delicious. The open air and informal restaurant is on the edge and has great views over the bay. We would definitely stay here again, the Island, the location of Two Bays and the handy placement of Cabier with the always helpful Iris and Bruno provide a wonderful combination to unwind and just relax.
