About this listing

It's my dream come true - an old, ruined building transformed into a stylish, comfortable and inviting home. I love its charm and character; the spacious, airy rooms and wooden floors, and the glimpse of the past, lingering in the rough, stone walls.

Description

The space

Little Cocoa is a unique, hideaway holiday cottage offering high-quality, self-catering accommodation for two, on a small, organic cocoa farm in Providence, St. David’s. Originally the old plantation estate office, this historic, stone-built cottage is situated on a mountain ridge bordering the rain forest, with breath-taking views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Ideal for the independent traveller who wants to experience something a little bit different, Little Cocoa makes a great base to explore the island, or simply relax and enjoy the tranquility of your surroundings. We’re only ten minutes’ drive from La Sagesse - one of the best beaches in the world, and twenty five minutes from the famous Grand Anse beach and the capital, St. Georges. Explore its rambling streets and bustling market, visit old military forts, graceful plantation houses, waterfalls, spice gardens and rum distilleries. Go diving, snorkel or watch turtles, or simply relax in the sunshine with a rum punch.
Little Cocoa has been lovingly restored and tastefully furnished. It offers a fully-equipped kitchen and comfortable sitting room with TV, DVD and Internet. The large, luxurious double-bedroom features locally-produced, hand-made, hard wood furniture. There is a beautiful, en-suite bathroom with solar-heated water. The rooms have ceiling fans and nature's air-conditioning - a powerful breeze. Outside there is a large verandah where you can dine or relax in the hammock and enjoy the view. The cottage is set in its own private garden, and there is off-road parking.
We can collect you from the airport, and arrange car hire for you. We do encourage our guests to hire a car so that they can be independent and explore the island. We also offer a car service for short journeys to the beach and local supermarket. (There is also a local bus which goes to St. George's and is about ten minutes walk from the cottage.)
We love to get to know our guests, and will happily provide a typical Grenadian meal (24 hours notice please), or a trip in our boat for a BBQ on Hog Island.
If you’re looking for peace and quiet, a rural environment with wonderful walks, bird watching, beautiful panoramic views, and a lush, green landscape cooled by refreshing mountain breezes, Little Cocoa is perfect.

The neighborhood

Providence is situated in a mountainous, rural area of outstanding natural beauty, just ten minutes drive from one of the best beaches on the island, which is also located in a nature reserve. There is a good beach bar and restaurant there which serves food all day. There is another good restaurant serving local food and pizza at night which is five minutes away. Our village is tiny, and has a natural spring. There are pleasant walks and strenuous hikes, stunning scenery and friendly people.

Getting around

We can usually pick you up from the airport (cost EC$80) but if we are not able to we send a taxi to meet you (cost EC$100). We recommend you hire a car to get the most out of your stay here. There is off-road parking outside the cottage. There is a bus approx. 10 minutes walk from here which goes to St. George's.

What a great little guest house, perfect location and great hosts! The cottage was immaculate and had everything you could possibly need. Photos don't do it justice and you can easily spend hours on the verandah watching the hummingbirds, reading or just taking it all in. The location is extremely private yet only a 10 or 15 minute drive from a great beach (La Sagesse) and a couple excellent restaurants. I highly recommend staying at Little Cocoa!

If you're still deciding whether to stay here or not... and just do it. It's magical.

My wife and I loved this place. After spending 2 weeks on the Gran Anse beach in St. George and 1 week on Carriacou this cottage was a very pleasant surprise. If you want to experience life away from the coast this is the place to be. On a small cocoa plantation near the village of Vincennes this gem has all of the modern amenities in a totally renovated plantation cottage. You could rent a car to get yourself around but we found that a 15 minute walk put us right on the bus route and took us wherever we wanted to go. Shelley and Philip our hosts were a lovely couple who when needed drove us where they were going and Philip even drove us to the airport for a reasonable fee. We often cooked in the well equipped kitchen with local produce and fish purchased at the market. Internet service was the best we experienced on our visit to the islands. Shelley loves a glass of wine and to chat about their plantation and her dogs, donkey, turtles, sheep and goats. She has lived on the island for many years now and has lots of local tales to tell. You can't go wrong if spend some time at Little Cocoa.

We had another wonderful stay at little cocoa. Gorgeous views, gorgeous garden, and so much character and attention to detail in the cottage.

Of the three places we stayed during our 2 weeks in Grenada this was by far the best. The cottage is attractive and very well equipped with everything you would need (with the possible minor exception of a Microwave perhaps) and nice touches that make you feel at a home not at a rental. The space is good (and accurately portrayed) with a good size lounge / kitchen and a very large covered terrace where we spent most of our time. The bedroom again is large and very well furnished and the bathroom is excellent. We would recommend that you would be best to hire a car for your stay, as we did, as it is remote (but part of its charm) and the car gives you the freedom to explore. Shelly and Phillip are great hosts with plenty of good ideas for exploring the island and nothing was too much trouble for them.

Truly a special place. Shelley and Phillip are great hosts. The cottage is amazingly comfortable and well stocked. Location is ideal for those seeking to get out of the tourist area and get into real Grenada. Kitchen is modern, bathroom is great..plenty of hot water and bed was very comfortable for 2 adults (I'm 6'4"). We relaxed, we hiked, and we explored Grenada from this location. Great beach is 6-8 mins by car (good restaurant here as well). I strongly recommend renting a vehicle as walking to and from public transportation is doable but challenging. We prepared about 2/3rds of our meals in the cottage(grocery stores are withing 10-15 mins drive), and we ate out for other meals. Driving on the "other-side" of the road takes a little getting used to, but you get used to it quickly. Shelley recommended renting a vehicle from Marcus Gabriel. Marcus met us at the airport, drove us to a grocery store, and then escorted us to the cottage. They have three dogs that are friendly. There are some great "walks" that can be taken from the cottage where you will find incredible vistas, stunning flora and greenery, and you will see real Grenada. Enjoy!

This is a lovely renovated house that is fully equipped to relax around the house, do cooking and baking, and to be your base to explore the island.

My husband and I have a small cocoa farm in Grenada - the Spice Island of the Caribbean. I used to be a high flyer and now I am a small-holder with big dreams. Passionate, creative, purposeful and chaotic - my head in the clouds, my bare feet on the rich, red earth. I came to Grenada on holiday ten years ago and met the man I was to marry – a Rastafarian called Phillip. So far, so romantic! We both love growing things and started off in a small way with a salad business. Eventually we discovered Providence and knew we had found our dream – six acres of cocoa. One orphan lamb became a flock of twenty sheep, a wedding present of a goat became a family. Phillip grew up farming and fishing and I worked in tourism for many years, so together we are trying to create a successful, organic small-holding - Grenada's version of The Good Life! We enjoy getting to know our guests and sharing our enthusiasm for the island and our local knowledge.
