We were 2 couples and the house is perfect for giving each some space.
It comes with a housekeeper. She was great. She did all the dishes and our laundry, changed the beds,etc. The house is in a central location on top of a hill with a 360 view of the island. We really enjoyed the lap pool. The outdoor kitchen doesn't take much to get used to. It is not close to a beach. There are not to many places to eat close by. Mostly you will need to drive 10 - 20 minutes for most things. There is a new lovely supermarket 5 minutes down the road.
If you are not used to driving British style(we were not) It can be a bit of a stress. The roads are OK but have no shoulders and drivers do not give way.
I do have 2 suggestions for the owners. First most Americans drink filtered electric machine coffee. The french press was not to our liking and the coffee was always cold. Second a tile lip or edge in the bath would be much nicer than a flooded bathroom every time you shower. All in all it is a unique experience and Grenada and her people are beautiful.
We stayed at the tower for a month, we loved every minute. The views are incredible 360 degrees all around the island. Being so high up there is always a soothing breeze. An amazing piece of architecture beautifully maintained,giving every luxury from the beautiful pool to the amazing sound of the Bose music system , which sounded incredible in the circular bedroom.loved the outside kitchen and very comfortable furniture.some days we didn't want to leave , the lovely housekeeper Ingrid was so helpful and informative .we loved it so much we are getting married on the top floor next year. The only thing missing was a full length mirror .
Perfect for a group of friends wh want to relax together in a quiet space with relaxing atmosphare. Loved the outside kitchen.
What a fantastic place The Tower is! Superb facilities, lovely pool and outdoor kitchen, everything spotlessly clean and in perfect working order. The owner is a friend of mine and made my arrival incredibly easy, but he would invariably do the same for any visitor. I could not have enjoyed my stay more. The neighbours, and indeed all the locals, are incredibly friendly and the island boasts great beaches, bars and restaurants-oh, and international cricket if that's your game!

If you're looking for an alternative to the mass produced package holidays in the Caribbean then The Tower will not leave you disappointed. It offers luxurious accommodation with stunning ocean views and 100% privacy. The architecture compliments the surroundings perfectly and you can't fail to be impressed as you approach for the first time.
We stayed for two weeks, hired a car for the first week and then took buses for the other. Buses are the best way to mix shoulder to shoulder (literally) with the friendly Grenadians and get a real feel for the culture but a car will give you the freedom to explore in your own time. Either way, The Tower is the perfect base from which to explore a beautiful and unique island.
