Overview

About the property

Location location... magnificent vistas north to the Grenadine Islands

Summerhill Bed + Beyond is a breathtaking escape like none other. It joins a growing trend of upscale Caribbean getaways focused on eco-tourism, allowing our guests to enjoy 2.5 acres of tropical organic gardens and spectacular ocean vistas; albeit with a touch of luxury.

Set high atop Bedford Point with stunning sea views Summerhill features a beautiful private villa. The main house offers 1 lovely BB with private bathroom and a separate 2BB guest house with private bathrooms. Each room boasts private balconies perched cliffside along our two thousand feet of Atlantic shoreline just steps away from your front door. Architecture and furnishings have been carefully selected to maintain the West Indian style and atmosphere which is sadly becoming a thing of the past. Louvered windows throughout create a cooling breeze with undisturbed 360 degree views. Completely renovated in 2012 Summerhill offers all the amenities of home. Family operated, with an emphasis on informality ensures a relaxed and comfortable vacation in true West Indian fashion. Summerhill boasts an oversize sweet water pool, comfortable mahogany day beds and a stone BBQ on the pool deck.

Enjoy the sun-drenched day at Summerhill, offering uncomprimising privacy sandwiched between two of Grenada's finest beaches. A private path leads our guests to Levera beach only 5 minutes away. Swim in the turquoise waters, snorkel the pristine reefs of Sandy Island, surf fish for the elusive bonefish and in season (March -April) watch the giant leatherback turtles as they migrate in large numbers back to Levera are only a few activities one may enjoy. Within easy walking distance is Bathway Beach, a calm and protected by coral reef swim area. Experience the true island culture where families enjoy cookout weekends, soca music and local activities. Belmont Estate and the Grenada Chocolate Factory, Rivers Rum, River Sallee boiling spring,and sleepy Sauteurs are only minutes away by car. Situated in the tropical rainforest is Mount St Catherine Grenada's highest peak with numerous waterfalls and hiking trails only a short distance away.

We recommend that guests use the services of a local driver. If you chose to rent a transport, ample parking is provided on our gated property. Local mini bus service is also available and we would be more than happy to help you along with your Grenadian itinerary.

Daily housekeeping is included.

Wifi available

Our Summerhill chef prepares for you Caribbean style full breakfasts on our northern veranda overlooking Levera beach and the Grenadine Islands. All our meals feature locally grown fruits, veggies, and spice from our own organic gardens on the property. A cornucopia of tropical fruits, herbal teas from our mountain forests and local specialties such as johnny cakes, ackee and salt fish,or coconut bakes are just a few tastes you will enjoy. Retire to the comforts of Summerhill in the evening, sip on a cold libation of your choice as we prepare for you a gourmet supper served under the stars. Freshly caught mahi mahi, snapper and tuna frequent our menus alongside seasonal veges from our organic garden. Feel for a local dish, let us satisfy your palate with a caribbean curry, jerk chicken or mouthwatering lambie dish.

About Michael A Rossy

Yasmin and Michael are certified organic farmers from Canada. Operating Runaway Creek Farm a 350 acre mixed organic farm in Arundel Quebec since 1995 we have decided to slow down just a bit and change the pace in Grenada. We love the land, nothing gives us more satisfaction than to grow our own food and above all we love people thus the evolution of Summerhill Bed + Beyond.

Michael A Rossy purchased this villa in 2010

Why Michael A Rossy chose Levera

Summerhill met all our criteria for purchasing a property on the spice island. A fertile countryside location away from the crowds, the very best views in Grenada's north and a magnificent home to welcome guests and family, make Summerhill the unknown gem of Levera. We love absolutely everything about Grenada its people and culture.

What makes this villa unique

Hiking one sun drenched day from Sauteurs to Bathway Beach we discovered the Levera recreational area featuring Levera beach, pond and wildlife reserve. As we made our way down the old Levera road and stepped on to the untamed and pristine Levera beach Summerhill's baked red West Indian roof tiles came into view. There was no need to say more as both Yasmin and I knew then this would be our home away from home. We only would like to share it with you.

Stunning view, delicious cuisine, delightful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier if we had spent twice the money (and we have) - Summerhill was everything we could have wanted. We arrived late after a harrowing trip across the island, but Yas had dinner (and a warm welcome hug) waiting for us. From the first dinner to the last, we were blown away with her culinary skill and inventiveness! We did not get to meet Michael, unfortunately, as he was called back to Canada, but we were in awesome company with Yas and Michele.

The Views are simply fantastic - the only obstructions are the palm trees and beautiful flowers swaying in the breeze. Sugarloaf Island is beautiful in the mornings! In the privacy of the guest house, the waves crashing against the cliffs will lull you to sleep at night. Watch the sun rise in the morning over the Atlantic, and set in the evenings over the Caribbean,

Take a walk down to the Blue Bar and enjoy a drink with the locals. Ride along with Yas to the Grenada Chocolate Factory where you are permitted to see how chocolate is really made - make sure to pick up some of the chocolate, and the cocoa butter to heal your skin after laying poolside all day! We have been to many islands with numerous setups - from all inclusive to luxury private villas. This was hands down the best experience when you factor in beauty, affordability, cuisine, and accommodation. A big part of the credit for our experience must go to Yasmine. She's simply one of the nicest and most genuine persons we've ever met. In short, we had a gas and were blown away!!!

BREATHTAKING VILLA!

  • 5 of 5

SummerHill Bed & Beyond is the perfect name for this Villa! We were greeted by Yasmin our beautiful hostess/owner when we arrived with freshly squeezed lemon water and juices. It only got better from there on! The next morning we sat outside to have a delightful and delicious breakfast prepared by Yasmin by the pool area overlooking the spectacular view of the ocean from the deck. Beautiful flowers, fruit trees surrounding the property with no other house in sight. You have 360 degree view of the Atlantic Ocean meeting Caribbean ocean just stunning, not forget the incredible landscape with no abstractions! It was great to see that the Villa was exactly as stated with actual ocean views all around. It was like we had rented our very own island with exceptionally delicious homemade breakfasts and dinners which are included in the price that we paid per night! I must say that the gourmet organic breakfasts and dinners alone should be worth the cost of our stay there alone! Just saying....so please no price hike! 😀

The weather was absolutely gorgeous and sunny every day. Every night we left the shutters from our window open and enjoyed a beautiful breeze at night where we could hear the waves from the ocean. The guest house is very clean and comfortable with two separate bedrooms and bathrooms. We loved the decor, Island feeling and just beautiful! The white sandy Levera Beach is a 5 minute walk from the Villa, it was like having our very own private beach. One of the must visits is The Grenada Chocolate Factory, the Royal Mt. Carmel waterfalls. We loved the markets with all the locals selling their produce and fish market. Before visiting Grenada and staying at SummerHill we were Beach Bums and only staying in hotels, now we’re Jungle Monkey and Beach Bums!!

Ms. Yasmin we would like to THANK YOU and your staff for making our stay so memorable once again and God willing we’ll see you next year! Xx

Even more beautiful than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing spot and so worth the trip to north end of the island. The views and ocean breezes are amazing, and so quiet and peaceful! We watched the sunset and moon rise from the deck every evening while enjoying dinner. The villa is beautifully maintained and the original architecture really shines through.

There are two nearby beaches, which are great for swimming. At Yasmin's suggestion, we had a great day on Sandy Island--a short boat ride away, and visited the Belmont Estates and Grenada Chocolate Factory. We also took a trip to a nearby waterfall for some fresh water swimming. Sitting by the pool, reading, and walking on the beautiful grounds at the villa and surrounding hills filled out the rest of our week.

Yasmin is an excellent hostess/chef/trip advisor, we felt like we experienced the true culture and beauty of Grenada--so much more so than if we had stayed at a resort or in the more touristy southern end of the island. And we have never enjoyed food on vacation as much! We were sorry to miss Michael, we hear he makes a mean Dark & Stormy!

Thanks for a great week! C&T

A Little Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

What a marvellous escape from the mundane! Fabulous views of the coast and nearby islands, surrounded by some of the most beautiful plants and flowers. The accommodations are delightful, island style but with all conveniences, and the peaceful sounds of the ocean surf and the wind are lulling.

We had a wonderful week lounging in and around the pool, walking on the beaches, swimming in the sea, and generally relaxing.

Loved Michael's inventive and delicious cocktails and dining al fresco, sumptuous meals prepared by Yasmin. In fact, meals at Summerhill must be as healthy as they are appealing since we ate heartily and richly, but managed not to gain any weight!

Anything you want to know about the area, anything you want to see or do, just ask!

Highly recommended!

Memorable and Delightful

  • 5 of 5

Located in northeastern of Grenada, at a confluence of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, Summerhill is a destination for all tastes. The villa is located at the top of a hill at the Northern part of the island, with 270-degree spectacular and expansive views of the ocean. The premises are beautiful, colourful, welcoming and comprehensive and the villa and guesthouses are beautiful, tasteful, clean and all with incredible views.

This is a place for all kinds of travelers, from those looking for a remote getaway, to those looking for adventure and action. Levera Beach can be reached on foot - about 3-5 minutes walk downhill, receiving surf from two directions, the Atlantic and Caribbean. From March to August the magnificent leatherback turtles come in numbers to lay their eggs. Also nearby, Bathway Beach (approximately 15 minute walk) offers a taste of local Grenada; the friendly beach bars just steps away from the reef-protected waters. Chat with a fisherman or the local elected representative about the weather or the rum or whatever, and get a taste of how friendly this island is. The nearby town of Sauteurs is a pleasant hour-long walk along beach, trail and road to a nice lunch opportunity. For a bigger adventure, a hike through the rainforest to a 2700ft peak or to various lovely waterfalls and lakes is easily accessible, and to get out on the water is a truly spectacular availability.

Summerhill is beautifully remote. Without a car and/or with teenagers, families need to be ready to hit the ground running, and with the help of the hosts, book the activities for your stay. Be prepared for some hilly and twisty car or bus rides to get you to more populated areas of the island. It would be nice if there were a little more opportunity to enjoy the water directly from the property, maybe kayaks available for rent to help with exploration of the immediate area.

The best part of our visit was the casual and lovely attention and conversation of our hosts, Michael and Yasmin. Michael's impressive and informative knowledge of the island combined with Yasmin's superb and healthy menu using local, often organic, creative, varied and delicious ingredients punctuated what was a terrific vacation.

Magnificent frigate birds and Grenadian fishermen are the only traffic one sees. Summerhill located in the Grenadian countryside is for those who want to experience a true Grenadian vacation away from the maddening crowds of the south. Levera recreational area home to the leatherback turtle, Bathway Beach Grenada's local beach, River Sallee boiling springs, Rivers Rum factory Grenada's oldest, Belmont Estate organic farm and home to the world's best the Grenada Chocolate Factory, sleepy Sauteurs capital of the north and simply hiking the backroads and hills of northern Grenada will offer one the best vacation ever!
