About this listing
Just an 8 minute drive away from the beach, our Seaview Ensuite is an ideal home away from home for exploring our beautiful island's culture. This room has its own bathroom with double doors leading onto the balcony that offers Atlantic Ocean views.
For nature lovers, writers and artists or for those who simply want to get away from the concrete jungle and connect with nature. Ezulwini Cottage is perched on a hill and sits on 1.4 acres of fertile land, commanding the most magnificent views of ocean, hills and valleys.
Our house is built of green heart timber so it is cool without the need for air conditioning. Mosquitoes are rare because it is windy up here. Our organic garden boasts of over 15 varieties of seasonal fruits, vegetables and a small herb garden. Walk through and pick whatever fruits and veggies are in season, while watching the hummingbird hovering over the flowers extracting the nectar. Do you know the rate at which a hummingbird flaps its wings? You will just have to relax and try counting!
Our double bedrooms are bright, airy and comfortable. Relax on the expansive balcony while eating a plate of fresh fruits from our garden, sipping sundowners - try our own special cocktail "Ezulwini Sunset" while enjoying the panoramic view and gorgeous sunsets.
We have an additional balcony upstairs to capture the mountain views; there is also a library and a sitting area if you need to be alone. There are also yoga mats if you are interested.
Forget your troubles and cares. Come to simplicity, come to Ezulwini Cottage.
Ezulwini is a Siswati/Zulu word meaning ‘Heaven'.
Upstairs and downstairs balconies, garden, library, yoga room. There will be a small fridge on the balcony for cold items.
Interaction with Guests
We aim to make you feel at home. We can help plan your tours of the island and offer useful tips to make your stay enjoyable as well as save you money. We can collect you from the airport at a reduced rate or we can have a taxi collect you, as well as join you on trips if time allows.
Enjoy a short, quiet drive through a small shady cocoa plantation before approaching the cottage which is only an 8 minute bus ride away from the famous La Sagesse beach and nature centre. We are 30 minutes away from the city centre and 35 minutes away from the airport. Grenville town is only 20 minutes (website hidden). Saint David's is an ideal location to access popular attractions including Grand Etang Lake, River Antoine Distillery, Forts George, Fredrick and Old Fort. It's also great for cycling and getting to meet the locals or go for nature walks. This is also a good place to recuperate.
In Grenada it is the custom to greet others we meet along the way with "Good morning" or "Good afternoon." It is a way of recognizing a person's presence, so don't be surprised if you get lots of "good mornings"!
You can rent a car, jeep, moped or bicycle. There are buses to and from St. George's and Grenville, which usually run up until 7 or 8 p.m. You can't get lost, and people are very friendly and more than happy to give you directions.
