Just returned from a fantastic stay at Oyster Shell Guest House and can honestly say everything was perfect, from ease of booking, location, accommodation, facilities etc, etc. Can't praise it highly enough. John Gabriel is the perfect host and was on hand to help if needed, but never intrusive. He helped us with everything from ensuring booking was arranged, meeting us at the ferry and even taking us on a guided tour of beautiful Carriacou. A truly lovely man who couldn't have made our stay ananymore perfect.

Oyster Shell is an ideal base with every possible facility you could wish for in holiday accommodation. Everything was exceptional with a fully equipped kitchen, air conditioning, beautifully clean sheets and towels, perfect location and friendliness of everyone we met.

Literally just across the small road from the beach so a dip in the beautiful Caribbean Sea is just a few steps away. There are shops within easy walking distance although don't expect Waitrose but everything you need can be found easily.

Carriacou is the most friendliest island we have visited in the Caribbean with everyone without exception ready to chat, wave and acknowledge you wherever and whenever they see you. Rufus sells fruit and veg is a delight, Venus will tell you what her best fruit of the day is, and will tell you what you need, whilst we got a lift home from the guy who runs one of the bars who merely did it to save us waiting more than a couple of minutes for one of the frequent buses that passes by to and from Hillsborough. Exceptional friendly, helpful, cheerful people.

If you want glitz and glamour Carriacou isn't for you as this is raw Caribbean without any pretentions of being anything but a small, friendly beautiful little gem. If you want to pack the bare minimum without you designer gear, relax and unwind and be made to feel at home, this is the place to go and Oyster Shell Guest House is by far and away the best we've ever stayed at. Thanks John, we will be back.

Amazing location on the beach, surrounded by lots of local shops, dive spot and restaurants. Space was clean, comfortable and had a fully equipped kitchen. Very nice and helpful owner. Recommended to anyone new to the island

“Island paradise”

This simple accommodation has all you need for a relaxed stay on this beautiful, friendly island. The apartment is excellently located for the bars, restaurants and shops on offer in Tyrell Bay and the sea is on your doorstep for a cooling swim in turquoise waters. Sunsets can be viewed every night from the balcony as you sip your sundowner! Don't expect bright lights, fancy restaurants or a wide variety of water sports - if that is what you want then stay on Grenada. But a stay on Carriacou will give you a taste of the real Caribbean with some of the friendliest people you could wish to meet. Enjoy hunting around the local supermarkets to collect ingredients you need to self cater - eggs and chickens are available immediately behind the apartment. If you fancy a treat I can thoroughly recommend Bogles Roundhouse for a lovely meal - if you do not have your own transport you can get a taxi over to it. Local buses pass by regularly to take you into Hillsborough. For local life and and a laugh go down to Levi's (next to the Lambi Queen) but be very wary of the Jack Iron if you want to remember your evening!! Oh and keep an eye out for the fire flies which sparkle in the trees. A truly wonderful and unique place - we will be back.

While the photos might show this place as a little basic, what it lacks in a few amenities it more than makes up for in location.
There is everything you need for self catering and we cooked many times during our three weeks here.
The views from the balcony, with a free spectacular sunset almost every night, are truly wonderful.
Everyone who passes, or infrequently arrives to buy eggs or frozen chickens from the small business behind will wave and say hello to you if you are sitting out on the balcony.
The enticing sea just across the very quiet road is a lovely to swim in as it looks.
So if you fancy a slice a island life and to unwind in a stress free way this will be perfect for you and very hard to beat for good value.

How easy was it to book the property? How easy was key pickup/access to the property?
