The SpaceSearch your favorite social media for 'The Sugar Apple Vacation Home' to see the latest happenings!
The Sugar Apple is a prefabricated modular wooden home designed and built by my father, a self-taught boat builder, architect, sculptor, and artist, who also resides on the family property. Designed with sustainability in mind, the house is completely solar powered and features a waterless composting toilet (no, it doesn't smell, I promise, but it's not the most visually appealing).
The kitchen features a 3-burner gas stove, toaster oven, kettle, blender, and (almost) full size fridge. Guest AccessIn addition to the home and parking space guests are welcome to wander among the ponds and pathways that connect the flower and ornamental gardens (my Grandmother's pride and joy), venture into the nearby mahogany grove (known to us as The Enchanted Forest) or tromp around the fruit trees in the valley below (how much fruit can you carry?)
There is no washing machine in the house, but clean linens are provided weekly, and personal laundry can be done for an additional charge ($30 EC per load, full service). We can also arrange house cleaning by one of our trusted cleaning ladies, at your request, also for an additional charge. Interaction with GuestsI also live on the property, and will be available should you have any questions or concerns. Although there are a handful of other long term residences on the property, they are all on the other side of the drive, so you might only see others coming and going. I grew up in Grenada, and if you wish, I'm happy to recommend things to do and see (I'll even point you in the direction of my favourite hidden beach!) The NeighborhoodMy family has lived atop Mt. Edgecombe for nearly 60 years, dividing and expanding the main house, an old colonial plantation home, into a handful of rental apartments, each unique in their own way. Almost all the residents are long-term, some of which have been with us for decades. My Father built his own home next door, and my Aunt and Uncle did the same just up the hill. The Sugar Apple is the newest addition, finished by my Father and I about a year ago, and the only one on it's side of the driveway. Getting AroundWe are a 5 minute walk from the local grocery store and bus stop that will take you to town (a 10 minute ride) or the main beach area of Grand Anse (a 20 minute ride). Buss service quickly drops off after dark, and the routes are limited, so renting a car is highly recommended. I'm happy to provide the name and number of a reputable rental agent. Other Things to NoteIf you have a fear of dogs, sadly I can't recommend my listing. There are 3 dogs on the property. Two are small lap dogs, and the other is a rambunctious medium-sized mutt named Ziggy that I adopted as a puppy a few years ago. Most homeowners in Grenada have dogs as a security measure, and although Ziggy is very much a part of the family, we give him free reign of the property, and try to only tie him up when absolutely necessary. He can be a bit of a handful, so if you don't want him visiting, simply close the deck gate to keep him out.
