Any other Granada (Caribbean) Lovers Here?

Post by Small Law Survivor » Sat Dec 02, 2017 10:35 am

When I was in my 30/40s I scuba dived all over the Caribbean - one or two trips a year.

By far my favorite island was Grenada - a beautiful island with a large, friendly population, lots of local culture, just a wonderful place. I've now been there twice.

I'd like to figure out how to travel there less expensively than staying in a conventional hotel - maybe a rental on Grande Anse beach. Last time I was there with my wife I even fantasized about buying a place in Grenada.

That said, I have no idea how to go about either a long-term rental (4-6 weeks), or buying a place in Granada.

Any other "Granadian would-be's" here that can share their experiences?

DW, as is her wont, just snagged a B&B for 10 days in first two months of '18. Price was reasonable and nice location.

Not planning to dive there, but we'll have our gear and could be persuaded! (Undercurrent reports are mehh.)

I more of a Bonaire lover (8 times), but I'm not inclined to buy a place there.
Next trip there in early May if I get working on it...

I enjoyed my brief stay in Grenada. I wish you the best as you try to find someplace to live there.

40 years ago I stayed at a cottage at Lance aux Epines (Prickly Bay). Close to town without the activity of Grand Anse Beach, though things may have changed a lot through the decades.
