We recently spent 3 nights at the Villa Beachcliff before embarking on a sailing trip from Grenada to the Grenadines. Our family group of seven was totally enchanted by the villa, and we were all disappointed that we were only spending 3 nights there.
The villa is spacious and really beautifully decorated. The bedrooms are all separate from each other, so there is a lot of a privacy for even a big group. Having 2 pools and numerous outside areas, plus stunning views of both the Atlantic and Caribbean sides of the island, makes venturing from the property a difficult decision. However, its proximity to St George's, beaches and restaurants, makes it a great location.
Rick and Karen were great hosts, and were very helpful with giving us advice on where to go and where to dine. When we arrived minus our luggage, they did what they could to assist us.
We highly recommend Villa Beachcliff for a stay in Grenada.
We just returned from an amazing Holiday week stay at Villa Beachcliff. It was the perfect location for our family of two adults and our three "kids" ages 25, 19, and 17. The property is beautifully situated on a small penisula near the capitol of Saint George's. The views from multiple ( yes mutiple) balconies of scenic Prickly Bay were amazing, no matter the time of day or night. and on the other side of the house were dramatic vistas of the Atlantic. The property boasts four private suites, with ensuite bathrooms, very, very comfy beds, ceiling fans, air conditioning, and bright and appealing decorative aspects that complement the surroundings.There are two (yes two) pools, both well maintained and attractive. The outdoor landscaping is also very nice, as owner Karen nurtures native plants to create a quiet green haven. Hosts Rick and Karen go the extra mile to make sure all is in place to assure you have a wonderful experience. As one of our kids had a birthday on the day of our arrival, we asked if they might be able to purchase a cake on our behalf to surprise her...... Karen, who also makes an yummy breakfast made an AMAZING chocolate expresso cake, which surprised my birthday girl, and was so rich and moist it kept everyone's sweet tooth happy all week! Rick has a knack for keeping up with all sorts of local resources, and connected us with the best options for the things we wanted to do on the island. The Sailing/ Snorkeling trip he arranged was beyond perfect, in part because the experience was so beautiful, but also because the crew of the boat were so genuinely warm and attentive to our every need. The tour of the northern part of the island was also top notch, with Rick and our driver Gerry helping us understand a bit about the history, geography, and culture of the country. Highlights included visiting a rum factory, a cocao plantation, and a quick peek at the crater lake and lovely Annandale waterfall in The Grand E'Tang Rainforest ...... a full day touring the island.
Last, definitely but not least is just relaxing, ( Liming as they call it) either at the Villa itself or at any of the beautiful white sand beaches the island boasts... Grand Anse is perhaps the best, but Prickly Bay Marina is also nice, and located close to the Villa. A very short walk from the Villa is the University Club, where Rick and Karen have an Associate Memebrship, which allows you to dine at their top notch restaurant. Other eating choices are near the Grand Anse area or in Saint George's. Be aware that both are a cab ride away. Rick provided a few names of cab drivers who he knows are reliable, and again, they were not only prompt and reasonably priced, but warm and friendly, and happy to answer our questions about life on the island.
This was our first adventure in any Carribean location, and it was fantastic. Grenada is not built up at all, which for us is exactly what gives it its charm! That, and Rick, Karen, and the wonderful retreat they have created at Villa Beachcliff.
We spend our Christmas holidays in Beachcliff Villa in Grenada. We are experience travelers and I must say that we couldn't choose better place to stay. We were travelling with 3 kids and they enjoyed the place to the fullest. 2 swimming pools, private beach, fantastic BBQ area and of course Jacuzzi make as feel special. Fully equipped kitchen allowed as to prepare most delicious meals and numerous patios to choose from where to dine al fresco.
Villa is located in very safe area and close to supermarkets and restaurants.
Rick and Karen are simply fantastic....If you need any help or advice where to go they will be more than happy to assist you.
I would highly recommend anyone travelling to Grenada to choose Beachcliff villa.

Villa Beachcliff provided everything we were hoping for and more. This beautifully decorated villa offered one of a kind views of both the Caribbean sea and the Atlantic ocean with fantastic snorkeling and fishing opportunities. There was also two pools and enough space on the property to find a private lounge chair to relax and enjoy while soaking up the beautiful Grenadian sunshine. One of our favorite spots was in the hammock where we would enjoy the breathtaking sunsets while sipping on the homemade sunshine tea that Rick and Karen provided. They were great hosts who went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable and relaxing. They also provided great information about local events and places of interest that made our stay even better. Our trip was exactly what we needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lifestyles and we cannot wait to return to the beautiful island of spice.
