“A perfect place to stay for those would prefer more independence than a hotel provides.” We loved our time in this beautiful location with its view of the bay from the simple yet tasteful building of high quality that the owners have so cleverly designed.The studio lacked nothing and the instructions answered every possible question we could have had. The balcony was a delightful place to relax and the infinity pool perfectly complemented the swimming from the beach. The daily cleaning service was discreet and of a high standard.
Although the studio is fully equipped for self catering, we so much enjoyed the delicious meals served in the nearby guest house that we never cooked for ourselves. We were made most welcome there by Iris and Bruno who run the place, eating outside in a perfect setting, looking down on the bay with the sound of the waves below.
The photos and descriptions faithfully reflected the villa and the studios on the promontory of land with beautiful bays either side, including the approach by rough road which we had been advised would need a four by four. The only slight surprise was that we had expected to be more remote from other houses than proved to be the case.
“Tranquille, relaxing, beautiful setting the 1st class villa and pool” 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.
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. …
Cabier Beach Studio in Two Bays Beach Villa
Wonderful relaxing location on a beautiful island
Two Bays villa and studios are set in a lovely quiet location with sea views from the villa and both apartments. We were in Beachside studio, a good size and well equipped studio where you wake in the morning to look out to the lush green of the island and hear the waves gently crashing on the beach 100m away. From the balcony you see the sunrise over the sea. The infinity edge pool gives you amazing views over the sea as you swim. It is a beautiful location. Studio is set up for complete self catering, or 100m away is the restaurant of Bruno and Iris who serve the most amazing food. The island of Grenada is lush and green, the people are so friendly and helpful, you always feel safe. There are some lovely beaches, but this is not a white sand beach holiday destination. There is far more to Grenada than the beaches. A car is essential to see the full bounties of the island. Would highly recommend visiting the Rivers rum distillery and the Belmont Estate. Loads to do and see on the island or choose to do nothing other than relax and take in the sunshine.l …
Ocean View Apartment in Two Bays Beach Villa
There are so many things to tell you about our holiday in Grenada in December 2016 - first of all 'fabulous' is a word that I can use time and time again in my review.
We arrived by taxi on our first day (car hire came the next day) and because the latter part of the road is uneven we were glad we did - but once you get used to the terrain it is no problem.
Although it was dark our first impression of the Villa was wow and I could not wait to see everything in the morning and then the word WOW comes in. It is absolutely beautiful the villa and the scenery. Everything you wanted for a perfect holiday where you could cater for yourself (but then we had not been down the path to Cabier Lodge) Nick had booked us a table for our first evening with the guests at Cabier Lodge (a party of 16 members of one family had also just arrived at the Lodge who meet up every year in the Caribbean with grandparents, children and grandchildren - they made us feel so welcome) then appears Iris, Bruno and their staff who were so helpful and made us feel so at home. The food was delicious so we thought we would just book for the next evening but it is so good and reasonably priced we ate there EVERY night - New Years Eve was spectacular with a 5 course gala meal with champagne and we danced into the early hours all on the outside terrace (Iris does not accept the word 'can't dance'. What an experience the first New Years Eve we have been to in 20 years. Do not miss it if you go at this time of the year.
Back to the villa, you can sit on the main balcony and if you scan your eyes you cannot see another buiding or anything nature did not intend (only a garden hose and a small bunker left from a war and a fisherman's boat although these things only enhanced the view) The villa is immaculate both inside and out and the swimming pool is excellent good size (one depth once you go down the steps) to swim to the edge of the infinity pool and look at the view is beautiful.
Nick arranged our car hire and we went to Grenville to do a shop which is such good fun and bustling - our maid suggested a supermarket which we found quite easily and did a bit of a shop but because we decided to eat in the Cabier Lodge we only bought a few bits for lunch. We have been to Grenada before and stayed on Grand Anse beach and used Morne Rouge Beach as our main beach so we went there on our second day (the beach at Cabier Lodge is a bit wavy and as we are not confident swimmers we prefer a more quieter sea - but that is just our opinion and we had the pool so it was no problem to us. We live in Southampton where the Cruise Liners leave to go on Caribbean and Mediterranean Cruises so we see enough of these to realise how many thousands of tourists arrive at these small Caribbean Islands but they all to seem to use Morne Rouge Beach for their day trip to the beach as their excursion so our once quiet beach is now very popular and not for us when you can escape to the quieter side and more natural part of the Island which is how I would describe Cabier.
We booked the villa and both the studios which are attached to the sides of the villa were both occupied but we did not hear or meet the two couples staying in them until New Years Eve party so it is no problem but if you have a family or a larger group they open the connecting doors - but honestly I would have been just as happy staying in any part of the villa as the views were lovely from the studios as well it is just that the actual main part had terraces on 3 sides.
If anyone has any questions if they would like to know anything about booking your holiday I would quite happily answer but believe you me the whole experience of booking is so easy and Nick Hamilitons information is SO good you will basically just want to get there.
