Located on the rural North West coast of Grenada in Non Pareil, our 200-year old 15-acre estate has been lovingly restored into a fully working commercial organic farm (focused on cocoa). Our lodging is ideal for those wanting something different from the usual beach holiday. We have two buildings with three double beds, two single beds, a loft, two full baths, one full kitchen and a kitchenette. The main house has two single beds, a double bed, a full kitchen, a full bath and a common area. The 'Little House,' steps from the main house, has two bedrooms with a shared bathroom and a loft sleeping space ideal for kids. It has a small fully equipped kitchen and large shaded balcony area. We're located on Crayfish Bay near several small stores and bars, and close to the main road with regular bus service. The beach is accessible down the hill, and we're near Victoria and Dusquene Bay. Our farm has a spring, waterfall and paths to enjoy, as well as tropical fruits (bananas, guava, oranges, plantain, soursop, starfruit and more), and a vegetable garden. Guests are welcome to get involved in farm tasks from clearing weeds in our cocoa forest and post-harvest cocoa processing to making cocoa tea balls and baking bread. The view is stunning and the atmosphere is peaceful. Off the beaten track and back to basics, this is truely an authentic Caribbean experience. This is rural Grenada. We provide mosquito nets and fans. We advise that you pack loose, light, long sleeved tops and long trousers for the dawn and dusk times when you are more likely to be nibbled. A good insect repellent is advisable.
While staying with us you will become a part of the family, we often dine together.
Over the last twelve months we have enjoyed being a part of the Couch Surfing and Helpx communities which is where we heard of the difficulty in being able to find cheap, clean accommodation within the Spice Islands which is why we would like to join up with HI,offering longer stays than is possible with couch surfing and no obligatory work on the farm which is one of the conditions of Helpx.
Please note that the price mentioned on our web site is for the entire little House rental and does not apply to individuals or couples coming through HI unless they choose to go for that option.
Take a bus from St. George's bus terminal, number 5, direction Sauterres. Ask driver to drop you at Miss Janet's Shop in the village of Non Pareil. The Hostel is a 2 minute walk. Warning...arrival on a Sunday is not reccomended as transport from the airport to the hostel can be very difficult.
