Heidi and I stayed at Vision View Apartments from March 1, 2016 to Apr 1, 2016 as the first leg of our Caribbean island hoping tour. Truthfully we didn't know what to expect from Grenada, so we picked it as our first stop so that in case we didn't like it, we had a lot to look forward to. BOY DID WE GET THAT WRONG! Grenada was amazing! Beautiful, warm, and friendly!
And the best part was our home, at Vision View.
Mike, the owner, was an amazing host who always checked up on us to make sure we always had everything we needed. We even had a chance to meet his wife and pick her brain on some local cooking ideas (We made a pigeon pee soup with dumplings!).
And the view.. WOW... I am not exaggerating when I say the view is awesome. You're overlooking the carnage in St Georges up on a hill and you can see tall ships, cruise ships, catamarans and fishing boats coming in and out every day. We used the GIANT patio as our 'corner office' while we were working remotely. Having to say goodbye to that view was the toughest part. Of all the places we've been to in the Caribbean on this trip so far (4 different countries), Grenada was our top choice. We wished we had spent more time there, and it it DEFINITELY a place we want to come back to. Mike, you better keep us saved on WhatsApp! lol
If you're looking for a detailed video walk-though of the home we posted one here: LifeAlive.ca
The house IS about a 100 stairs up form the Carnage if you don't have a car. But in all honesty, it wasn't that bad. It kept us fit, and we didn't feel unsafe walking the stairs between the houses day or night. The buses to the main bus terminal (where you can go anywhere on the island from), as well as Grande Anse beach stop at the bottom of the stairs. We felt totally connected to the whole island form our location even though we didn't have a car. Although, for my birthday we hired one of Mike;s friends as a private driver/guide around the whole island as we stopped at EVERY rum distillery. Happy Birthday indeed! lol IT was very affordable and I know Mike could hook you up with the same.
The grocery stores (2 of them), fresh caught fish from fisherman, the fire station, tourism office, and postal place were also all within a 2-5 minute walk at the bottom of the stairs.
Oh and if you're wondering about the home itself. It was fully stocked in the kitchen, the bathrooms had good water pressure, the bed was good, there were plenty of fans to circulate the breeze form the ocean and there is an AC unit (even though we had no need for it). The TV has some basic cable, and the internet worked very well for us (which was important because we were working remotely from our laptops). The power by the way, is 220; so if you're coming from Canada or the USA you'll need both a power plug converter and a power adapter.
