Craigston Great House is set on a hillside just north of the little town of Hillsborough (walking distance) on the delightful island of Carriacou in Grenada. The views are outstandingly beautiful, especially when viewed from the hot tub with a rum punch in hand! Faithlyn, the housekeeper, is a gem, who cooks traditional Caribbean cuisine. This old plantation house, beautifully refurbished to a high standard, is a luxurious rental for families or groups of friends.We stayed for nine days (six of us) and would have loved to stay longer. Two excellent restaurants are within walking distance, as is the beach. Carriacou is the "real Caribbean", laid back, friendly and totally charming. Great snorkelling too! We hope to return!

Thanks so much for your high praise for Faithlyn, Carriacou and our Craigston Great House property. We are gratified that you so enjoyed your special-occasion holiday with your family. Praise like yours makes us exceedingly proud of our staff, property and island and encourages us to work even harder at maintaining a very high "old world" standard. We look forward to welcoming you back. Thanks again. Trevor and Hazel Ann Kent.

“Amazing views! Great Location!”
Reviewed 22 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This is our second time staying at The Craigston Great House, and once again, we were very happy with our choice. Since our last stay, the owner has upgraded the home to include A/C in the bedrooms. The property and grounds are beautifully maintained. The views are breathtaking from the front porch, as well as from the back porch. The Craigston area is about 5 minutes from Hillsborough, the capital; also very quick access to beaches. The housekeeper, Faithlyn, prepared a delicious welcoming meal, which was greatly appreciated after our long journey, and she took excellent care of us during our stay. Can't say enough about this property and it's staff.

We are touched that this guest, who incidentally shares our Carriacou heritage and was back for a sad family occasion, was so pleased with her second stay at our home. It is extremely heartwarming and encouraging to know that our efforts, and those of our housekeeper and gardeners, are so well appreciated, and that she would take the time and trouble to say so publicly We would like to say a sincere "thank you", and hope to welcome her and family back again soon.
