Overview

Photos and Description of this Saint George holiday villa

A Luxury villa.. Your home away from home. Spectacular views and lots to do!

Nestled in a tropical hillside, this villa offers outstanding views from the pool, house and all bedrooms.

Overlooking Clarkes Court Bay, Hog Island and the exclusive Calivgny Island, this villa was built for your enjoyment.

Tivigny (say ‘Tiv-in-ee’) is a contraction of ‘Petit Calivigny’, the name of the area.

Originally the land was part of the huge Calivigny estate. Donkeys, laden with sugar cane, used to trudge down the footpath to the beach and waiting boats.

Those days are gone, but there is still plenty of activity in the bay, with fishing boats, yachts and dinghies coming and going. From the veranda at Tivigny, you’ll enjoy a grandstand seat for the show!

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

The most beautiful and secluded spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at The Tivigny House for our honeymoon and we could not have been happier! At the end of the trip I felt so lucky to have found such a perfect spot! The house is completely private with amazing views. The pictures truly do not do this place justice! There is also an awesome sound system that plays outside and throughout the house - such a nice addition!

The Tivigny staff made our stay even better. Kim, the house manager, was so friendly and responsive to all of our questions and requests. She made sure our stay was perfect! Ursel and Ubert were also amazing - you must have a meal made by Ursel! They were essential to making our honeymoon as relaxing as possible!

I would recommend The Tivigny house over and over again! We can't wait to start planning our next trip!

Georgeous Property, Superb Manager, Wonderful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunningly beautiful property with great management. Kim patiently answered all my questions pre- and post-booking, helped with the stocking of the refrigerator prior to our arrival, and cheerfully arranged complimentary transportation from the airport--all of which I would recommend. Kim also recommended a local rental car agency that dropped a car at the villa the morning after our arrival. We, like most I guess due to flight scheduling, arrived after dark. When we arrived, we were met by Ursil, the very sweet housekeeper (and great cook too), who had lit the villa in anticipation of our arrival. You are expecting, from the pictures on VRBO, a beautiful home. Let me say, the pictures do not do it justice. It is absolutely stunning at night (and in the day too) with terra cotta tile throughout, rich mahogany trim, and a well equipped, modern kitchen. At your disposal you will find a Hobie Cat sailboat, 2 kayaks, and a small motorized dinghy. There are a few restaurants easily accessible by boat and we motored to lunch on several occasions. All great fun! Here is what concerned me prior to traveling, and what I experienced:

1) Driving on the left -- actually this was my biggest concern. Having never done this before (it should be on everyone's bucket-list) It took about a day of driving and then it was natural. The first day requires a lot of focus, but after that, no problem whatsoever. Yes you can do it too. By the way, you can spot the Americans because instead of using their turn-signals, they turn their windshield wipers on. I did it, you'll do it too....

2) Mosquitos - yes there are a few. I'd say there are fewer than most places I have lived in the U.S. A little bit of OFF bug spray applied kept them away completely.

3) Reception of the local people -- one never knows how the locals will react to Americans. All I can say is that we were warmly received EVERYWHERE we went. The island has a reputation for hospitality and I have to say that I experienced that over and over again. Grenadians are warm, fun loving, generous people and we felt welcomed again and again.

In the end, the things that concerned me prior to travel, were not the least bit troubling once I arrived.

If you want a unique vacation in a beautiful spot with wonderful hosts, this is the place for you. We will always remember our trip to this beautiful island and the gorgeous villa where we stayed. We absolutely loved it there.

THE BEST HOME AWAY FROM HOME EXPERIENCE EVER!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Tivigny Villa for about seven days with several friends for a destination wedding in Grenada. When I first contacted the property manager Kim, I already knew how wonderful our stay was going to be based on Kim's pleasantness through our communications prior to arriving. Even before arriving, she was going above and beyond to ensure that our visit would be as comfortable as it can be. It was a huge plus to have complimentary shuttle service pick us up at the airport.

Upon arrival to the Villa, our jaws dropped at how beautiful the villa was, and just as jaw dropping were the amazing views of Clarkes Court Bay and Hog Island from the villa. I am an avid traveler and usually dislike staying under a single roof the entire time while on a visit to another country. This is the very first time ever that I barely wanted to move a muscle because it was just so relaxing and peaceful staying right in the Villa with everything I needed right at my fingertips. Some of my friends love cooking, so having a fully stocked kitchen with kitchenware was heavenly for them. Not to mention the outdoor grill which we took full advantage of.

All three bedrooms are very spacious and comfortable with their own bathrooms within the bedrooms, which was amazing for privacy. The two main bedroom suites have beautiful views of the bay. There is also a stereo with amazing speakers that can be played to the speakers within the house or to the speakers by the pool area. The stereo comes equipped with a wire to plug in your music player or phone.

I’d have to say that one of my favorite experiences of staying at the villa was using the kayaks and small dingy boat for a short and leisurely 20 minute ride on the bay over to Hog Island, where we came across a beautiful and secluded beach that we had all to ourselves all day.

I have to also add that Ursel who is the house keeper was really wonderful and came over to the house several times during our stay for upkeep and to make sure our stay was going pleasant.

Thanks again to Kim, Ursel, and all the wonderful local people I met during my visit to Grenada. I speak for all my friends that came along on this trip that we will certainly be back.

Beautiful Villa, Beautiful Views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at Tivigny Villa! The house , view and garden were beautiful. We felt at home the minute we walked through the door. The house is beautiful and the bedrooms spacious. 2 of the 3 bedrooms are identical masters. They both have beautiful views but the view from the upstairs master was spectacular. The house is appointed with anything you could possibly need. The kitchen has any utensil, pot, pan or dish you might want. There is a dining area with pool and ocean views as well as a covered outdoor dining area. The infinity pool is lovely and has a wonderful view! We loved spending time in the pool when we were "home"

I cant say enough good things about Kim the property manager. She was incredibly helpful both before and during our trip. She was quick to respond by e mail whenever we had a question and checked in on us several times throughout our stay. She arranged for transportation from the airport to the Villa and shopped for some groceries to have waiting for us. Since we were arriving after dark and didn't yet have a rental car, we didn't know what to do about dinner our first night. We asked her about this in advance. Kim suggested that the housekeeper, Ursel, could prepare something in advance that we could reheat....that worked out perfectly! The meal was delicious! Definitely have Ursel prepare at least one meal for you! She stayed until we arrived (way above and beyond) She pointed things out to us and gave us some tips.

We had a rental car delivered to the house the house the next day. Driving is a ittle tricky. The roads are narrow and the local people drive quickly. I wouldn't try and go anywhere without GPS. We downloaded a Grenada map onto our GPS before we left home. I would recommend the same or ask the car rental company if they can provide one. We especially enjoyed the beaches, visiting the rainforest and waterfalls. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation and will definitely return to Tivigny Villa.....We didn't want to leave!

Paradise in the West Indies

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have traveled the Caribbean extensively. For the past seven years we have enjoyed staying at the Tivigny House more than any other and plan to return. We especially appreciate the calm quiet atmosphere which accompanies the gorgeously appointed home with wonderful amenities and a five star staff. All of our needs and wishes are seamless arranged. We could not be more pleased.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are frequent travelers and usually visit the Caribbean every year. Our accommodations have ranged from private villas , moderate hotels and luxury resorts. This year, we traveled with another couple. Tivigny , and Grenada exceeding our expectations!

The house itself is perfectly appointed, spacious , comfortable and gorgeous. The 2 master bedrooms with private baths on separate floors were perfect.

The kitchen had everything we needed. We cooked in often and loved it. One night we had Ursel, the wonderful housekeeper, cook us a delicious authentic Grenadian meal. She is great! ( sorry about all the empty wine bottles, we DID enjoy ourselves!).

The grounds are so pretty. We used the fresh herbs from the garden most meals.

The location is good for exploring most parts of the island. We did have a rental, but used a guide to take us to the rainforest and one night to the Friday Fish Fry. Just FYI, the walk down to beach is a bit steep. It could be challenging for some. We had no problem, but thought I would mention. It is a small, black sand beach with some rocks and sea grass as you get in. We used the " Nipper" and loved it. We took it to Hog Island, Whisper Cove Marina ( go here for great food and fun times with the yachties!), and also did some snorkeling at a small sand bar.

I can't say enough about the property manager, Kim. She was extremely helpful throughout the entire time. From initial contact and my million questions, to meeting us at the grocery store and loading her car up with our bags, to making us feel comfortable knowing we could contact her throughout our stay, thanks, Kim.

Grenada is a special island filled with extremely friendly people.

We will definitely be back.
