Guest ReviewsOwners Tip "Walk down to the beach in the morning for a refreshing swim across the bay - enjoy a coffee with Mike at the restaurant and youll be all set for the day! "
The best feature of the house is its expansive 2-tiered terrace. As the place has ample outdoor furniture, that allowed us to fully enjoy life outdoors at the villa. Having an infinity pool was also a definite plus and we used it a lot.
Amber was great! Beautiful property ...and view!
The features of this house, which were particularly good for us, were wi-fi access, air conditioning to all areas and provision of everything needed for travelling, as we were, with small children - cot, high-chair and safety gates on all stairs.
La Sagesse was five minutes away by car where there is a lovely, secluded, child-friendly beach with sun loungers and bar/restaurant. "
We arrived after sundown on Grenada and thankfully were met at the airport by Bentley the house manager. Though we didn't know where we going, Bentley led the way and we soon arrived at a very lovely and comfortable home. When the sun rose on our first morning it revealed a beautiful view of the ocean, the bay and a wonderful beach. The location is fantastic, the house is wonderful, the surroundings are very pretty and peaceful. The nearby beach restaurant serves very fresh and delightful meals as did every restaurant we ate at the entire week, thanks for the info Bentley. We as a family of 4 adults and an infant would definitely recommend this property and the beautiful island of Grenada to anyone wishing a friendly and rewarding vacation.
Scott M. St. George, Ontario, Canada
My husband, our 6-year-old son and I stayed for one week at Zingiber in February. While we traveled extensively in Caribbean islands, this was our first time to visit Grenada. We fully enjoyed the beautiful island; our positive experience was highlighted by our relaxing stay at Zingiber. As others have commented, the villa provides front-row view of picturesque La Sagesse Bay. Relaxing in the hummock (which we brought) on the huge terrace and enjoying the lovely ocean view was priceless.
We were absolutely happy with the La Sagesse Bay area rather than staying in the busy and touristy Southwest area. The area is filled with unspoiled natural scenery which gives a private and privileged feel. It has a relatively short drive to restaurants, grocery stores and other activity providers. Make sure to stop by local stores nearby - we enjoyed sampling fresh sugar cane at Wayne’s (only 5 min drive from the house, toward South). There we drank sugar cane juice and bought some cane vinegar. Local people are very friendly and helpful. In the evening, my son loved going for adventures finding frogs and toads just outside of the villa.
The best feature of the house is its expansive 2-tiered terrace. As the place has ample outdoor furniture, that allowed us to fully enjoy life outdoors at the villa. Having an infinity pool was also a definite plus and we used it a lot. It has robust kitchen facilities - making pancakes in the mornings and preparing dinner was a fun experience (note to US travelers: this UK oven system utilizes mnemonic increments rather than a temperature setting). Wifi worked well as others noted and TV reception was good, too.
House manger, Bentley, was a great resource and he looked after us well during our stay. We rented a car at the airport. Meeting him there took away any anxiety we had for our first day on a new island. He was reachable anytime we had questions. The owner provided local cell phone for us to use during our stay - having that was very helpful for making reservations and inquiries to restaurants and activity providers. The villa's owner is prompt and responsible and it was a pleasure communicating with him before, during, and after our stay.
Would we come back to this villa? Yes!
