Sparrow Bay also provides a safe mooring location for most of the year
Just 5 minutes from the shoreline around the bay is Anse La Roche, a fine sandy crescent beach, considered one of the best on the island. Nearby Sparrow Bay is just 2 minutes walk down from the villa, ideal for snorkelling and swimming.

The buildings are varied in size with large, louvred windows and ocean views framed by mature palms and lush tropical foliage. This collection of dwellings provide the perfect opportunity for redevelopment and the creation of a unique, waterfront boutique resort.
Ideal Opportunity for Investment

"A little oasis graced by its distinctive personality." Condé Nast Traveller
Orchid Cottage conveys the timelessness of a bygone Caribbean home. Substantially built in the late sixties as a family home, Orchid Cottage is a two bed cottage set over two separate buildings - a master bedroom and self contained studio. Construction is concrete-block & plaster with ceramic floors throughout, nestled in the gardens of the Prospect Estate private nature preserve overlooking the Sea.
Orchard Cottage requires renovation, but has enormous potential to create the perfect Caribbean get away.
Sparrow Hawk Villa
Sparrow Hawk Villa is ideally located on a wooded hillside. The 3 bedroom family villa comes furnished and has been designed to complement the forested slopes of High North to the rear, and spectacular views across a sparkling Caribbean to the south and southwest – an epitome of peace and quiet.
The present construction requires renovation and covers an area of 2,160 Sq Ft, with its own private driveway off the public lane and private access to the water's edge, sits snugly within a nature preserve.
Perfect as a superior Caribbean escape or manageable rental or retirement home, it possesses an ambiance of serenity and warmth within an exclusive and much sought-after west coast location.
Macaws, Pelicans & Osprey
The owners have lived on the estate for almost 25 years and have worked hard to preserve the surrounding landscape and encouraged the native creatures to thrive: iguanas, land turtles, brown pelicans, osprey, sparrow hawks and many others. The owners introduced Amazonian blue and yellow Macaws (ara ararauna ) onto the island, and a flock of 10 live happily in an aviary. A lone green-winged macaw swoops in and out at sunrise and again before sundown.
"The most beautiful and romantic spot on the island. You will discover an enticing little oasis - ten gloriously romantic rooms, so comfortable and seductive, with canopied beds, sea and sunset views, that chances are you won't want to wander." Barbara Lazear Ascher, The New York Times
"It's the English country house in the tropics. One of the treasures of the Caribbean." Tatler Cunard Travel Guide 1997
Carriacou: Unspoilt & Idyllic
This is one of the least spoilt islands in the Grenadine archipelago, with miles of sugar white sandy beaches and little development but an airport, basic infrastructure and growing tourist economy. Grenada, a close neighbour, is considered to be one of the fastest growing tourist destinations in the world.
"The sweep of Hillsborough Bay and the tiny islands, trailing towards the rolling sun, were every image you could wish to see of the Caribbean. Then came one you couldn't. Two Amazonian macaws swooped by, their tail feathers rippling in the glow, their opinions ricocheting around the hillside. I dropped my bags with a contented sigh."The Sunday Times 1993
