Contemporary two- bedroom ocean front villa located at secluded Cabier Beach in the rural village of Crochu. Tatou House is a private retreat. The villa is open plan with spectacular ocean and mountain views. Sliding glass doors open up onto a large covered terrace and dining area, and an inviting swimming pool, blurring the distinctions between indoors and outdoors. There is a well-equipped kitchen with island, perfect for entertaining. The master bedroom with lovely views over Crochu Harbour, has a king-size bed, and is en suite with large shower. The second bedroom looks out towards the mountains and rain forest, has a queen-size bed and is en suite with large shower. Tatou House is ideally situated for exploring Grenada. It is 40 minutes drive from the airport, and a good jump-off point for visiting Levera and Bathway beaches to the north, Grand Etang crater lake in the middle of the island, as well as the famous Grand Anse beach and the picturesque capital, St Georges in the south. Tatou house is the perfect place for a romantic or family holiday. A place to relax completely. A private retreat where you can get away from it all.
About the host Vikki Jackson
I am from New York and my husband Victor is Dutch. We are both self-employed and love to travel. Some of our best experiences when travelling have been when we've stayed with locals or with friends of friends. Whilst we live in Amsterdam, our last adventure has been building A House In Grenada, a beautiful still unspoiled island in the Caribbean. We love the beach and the sea and building this house has been a wonderful process. People ask why Grenada? That's easy, the people. We are happy to welcome you in our home in Grenada and make your experience there a memorable one..
Tatou House is a private retreat where you can relax and get away from it all. And where you can enjoy the friendliness and hospitality of the people of rural Grenada.
Our family spent 7 days at Tatou House and couldn't have enjoyed it more. I would highly recommend this property for those who want privacy, a remote location away from the tourist hubs and a stunning home overlooking the ocean. The house is modern and clean built by a local architect (Bryan Bullen) with clean lines and top notch everything. Great communication throughout the process from Vikki (the owner) and we were well looked after by the ever so helpful Linnette who manages the property. She arranged a car, a local cell phone, some groceries and a meal by the amazing Joanne upon arrival. Timmy showed us the home and everything we needed to know and we were set. We spent New Years Eve at Brunos down the path at Cabier Lodge and had the most marvellous dinner. We had Joanne come back and she cooked a second amazing shrimp meal. We felt so spoiled. Roads are windy and it takes a while to get places, but once you get the hang of it, it's fun. The people are extremely friendly and helpful and we always felt safe. We went to St. Georges for shopping, and Grand Anse Beach for swimming, then we explored Grenville as well. Try the local ice-cream (nutmeg flavour was delicious) and especially try the Grenadian chocolate, it is simply the best! We spent time hiking around the property out to the point (that you can see from the house) and we visited the beach nearby that we had all to ourselves. We spent a lot of time just hanging out by our pool and enjoyed not having to get dressed for dinner. We totally fell in love with this property and we will definitely be back!
We have been lucky enough to use many Homeaway properties over the years and have never been disappointed but Tatou House will always hold a special place in our hearts. Everything from day 1 of contacting Vikki, the owner, through to checking out with Linnette, the local agent, at the end was as straight forward and as easy as possible. Our enquiries and requests were always responded to promptly and even if they might have seemed trivial we were never made to feel that way.
The house really was perfect in every way, better than we could have hoped for or imagined. On arriving, we were initially rather concerned as to whether we'd find it too remote but we needn't have worried. The stunning, and very quiet, surroundings blew us away so we were more than happy to just stay at the villa. And when we felt like journeying out we found Crochu to be a good location to reach both the north and south of the island. It takes time to get around as the roads throughout the island are steep and winding but there is interest at every turn and travelling around in our hire car was easy. We did need to be organised with food shopping but Devon brought fresh fish when we wanted it and Bruno's restaurant, a 3 minute walk away, was perfect for delicious evening meals when we didn't feel like cooking.
If you are looking for somewhere comfortable, with a pretty swimming beach less than a 5 minute walk away, with a perfect view and genuine privacy this lovely place comes highly recommended.
What a truly amazing place! Just off the beaten path enough to give you all the privacy you could want, but still close enough.
First the house... Very nice! It is not only beautiful, but built well. Nice attention to detail.
We loved all of the facilities (once we figured out the language on the washing machine!).
The pool was great. Kitchen was great! View was priceless. Loved it... even in the rain.
Cherrianne was at the airport to help us get the key and get settled. She was always there when we needed her. She arraigned for a nice meal on the first day and it was delicious. Devon was also very helpful and even brought us coconuts one day and chopped them open for us so we could have the water inside. Terrific on ice when sitting by the pool by the way.
Great service from the Tatou team. Thank you very much
Next the little hotel next door was terrific. Iris was very attentive to our needs and did not have any issue with us being at her place even though we were not staying there. We just told her when we were going to be back next, and she had our table ready for us. Even made adjustments to our likes as we went along. They make a nice drink too for before dinner. Wonderful view!
The area is very much "locals only" that we saw. We did get out and do some sight seeing and drove all the way to the top of the island. Beautiful in many ways. Visited Belmont Estate and had a tour of the farm. Very informative and welcoming. Food was great too.
Also, Peite Anse hotel at the top of the island has a great view and the food was terrific. Nice people too. Really everyone we encountered was happy, nice and helpful.
We also did a short 3 day sail during our trip to some of the islands north of the main Grenada island. Well worth the trip. Very different experience. Great Snorkeling and very peaceful.
All in all we loved this rental. We would love to come again.
Thank you Vikki for being so helpful. You were a pleasure to work with.
We enjoyed the island, the house and the local area where we found people to be extremely friendly and helpful.
The house was accurately described, it was spacious, well maintained and appointed with a very pleasant private pool. The management, caretaking and cleaning of the property were all carried out extremely efficiently.
We found it to be an ideal base for exploring the island and is well away from the main tourist area.
The lovely swimming beach is only 200 metres away and generally quiet.
The small, friendly restaurant nearby serves good quality and interesting food in an unpretentious setting. Other eating places are further away involving a car journey although there is the possibility of having a local meal prepared at Tatou House.
We felt that a car was very necessary. There is a good network of local bus services but an uphill 1mile walk to the bus stop can be tiring in the heat. A car also gives greater flexibility to visit areas and attractions more difficult to reach by public transport.
The hilly island covered in lush rainforest is fascinating but do visit the Belmont Estate to see the cocoa plantation and other crops, the River Antoine rum distillery and the nutmeg processing cooperative in Gouyave.
Ocean view, distance to beach app. 160 yards. Protected beach with shade. Safe swimming for children.
Additional Location Information
Crochu is located on the eastern Atlantic coast in the parish of St. Andrew, 18 miles or 40 minutes drive to the capital St. George's and about the same distance to Maurice Bishop Airport and Grand Anse beach in the south. The second town of Grenada lies to the north of Crochu, 7 miles or 20 minutes drive.
Tatou House is located down a mostly unpaved road at the end of a small Peninsula. It is approximately a 30 minutes walk (7 minutes by car) to the main coast road and public transportation. Grenada offers a network of mini-buses for public transport; no public transport on Sundays. For people who don't mind left driving, we recommend to rent a car.
Cabier Ocean Lodge, a small hotel with restaurant and bar, is stone's throw from Tatou House. The villages of Crochu and Café offer some amenities. There are a few local bars, a small lunch café, BBQ stand and a small super-mart. Crochu is a good jumping off point for exploring the northern parts of Grenada, Levera and Bathway beaches, Belmont Estate and the town of Sauteurs.
