Interaction with guests
Faithlyn or Michael will welcome you and introduce the property to you. It is important that an arrival time is arranged once the booking is confirmed. They will give you the keys, the local cell phone and explain about the water system. Guests need to be aware that Carriacou is a water scarce island. Only about 2% of the island enjoys government piped water and everyone else depends upon rain water collected in the rainy season. Water is gravity fed to the showers and sinks to encourage conservation. Craigston Great House has 2 resident puppies who live in the yard and will be no bother to you. They are fed by the staff and being taught to not enter the house or its verandahs. Please let us know if you have other questions.

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,...More

About the neighbourhood
Craigston Great House holds 10 acres on a commanding hill in the Craigston Estate development. The grounds are beautiful with have lots of local fruit trees and various palms. The house has its own fenced 'kitchen' garden which at the moment has a visiting tortoise enjoying the daily scraps and fresh fruit. The house is a 10 minute to the nearest beach and a 15 minute walk from Hillsborough the main town. The main 'around the island' road passes by the gate. A few houses are dotted on the surrounding hillside and the village of Bogles is a 10 minute walk away but the little disturbs the singing of the birds.
Getting around
There is a system of privately owned small buses which operate from Hillsborough and service much of the more populated parts of the island. They run regularly past the main gate. However, Many guests walk everywhere.
If for example, you want to spend the day at Anse La Roche and you do not have a rental vehicle, you will have to walk from Bogles. The access road to the top of the hill by the beach is in very poor condition. Or you can access by a rented boat. The tourist board can help you with options.

How to get there
Airport: Lauriston : 5.0 km
Ferry: Hillsborough: 3.0 km
Most visitors fly to Grenada on an international airline, AA, BA, Virgin, Air Canada, Jet Blue. LIAT etc. and then take SVG (St Vincent and Grenadines Airline) for a 20 minute flight or the daily ferry for about a 2 hour trip. It is relatively easy to book seats on the SVG flights once one has their definite arrival time in Grenada. Sometimes it is necessary to overnight at a guest house or hotel near the airport.
Of great importance is the fact that the baggage allowance is only 22 K and hand luggage is restricted-- make sure you see this on the website. Extra luggage is costly. Once you have made your plans let us know so we are prepared for your arrival. If you are having trouble making bookings ask us to help.
