Description

Originally built as a private artist's atelier in 1994, Amaryllis House is a secluded, idyllic retreat, a place to completely relax, in nature and away from the pressures of urban life. Built entirely of wood in a traditional tropical style, the house features a high-ceilinged great room with skylight. Verandah doors fold back to create a panoramic view of meadows, forested lands, sea and cliffs. This is a natural living: there is no air conditioning, and you sleep under mosquito nets. Here, you experience from the house the unspoiled beauty of the island, and at the same time get a taste of local village life. Amaryllis Cottage is situated on the Atlantic coast 40 minutes from Grenada's capital St. George's, and 20 minutes south of the second largest town, Grenville, near the village of Crochu. At Amaryllis Cottage, a sleeping loft with a double bed, two daybeds in the great room, and a bed on the verandah sleep six in total (but somewhat tightly), with a well-equipped kitchen, and a bathroom with shower. Take breakfast on the verandah, while watching birds including tiny iridescent humming birds at certain times of year. Fall asleep lulled by the sound of the sea lapping the beach, and awaken to cooling sea breezes, or enjoy a view of the ocean in the loft with champagne-like light dappling through the trees. For the adventurous, come in rainy season (June-September), when daily downpours mean that everything is growing and the mangoes are in season (and insects more plentiful!) One of the most beautiful beaches for safe swimming on the island, Cabier Beach, is a 15 minute walk away. The property features a grove of tropical shrubs and fruit trees: calabash, soursop, papayas, bananas, cinnamon, a variety of mangoes, sapodillas, cashew, and coconut trees, as well as bougainvillea, heliconia, crotons, lemon grass, oleanders, and ixoras. Amaryllis Cottage is situated on the Atlantic coast 40 minutes from Grenada's capital St. George's, and 20 minutes south of the second largest town, Grenville, near the village of Crochu.
