Caribbean Stone Cottage

CARIBBEAN STONE COTTAGE

Suffused with light and equipped with a few simple furnishings, Caribbean Stone Cottage becomes your sanctuary. With lovely views of the Caribbean Sea and surrounding islands, it is located atop a hill in Union Island, the southernmost of the Grenadines islands of St. Vincent & the Grenadines.

Built of natural stone and wood, the inside is one large lofty room, both bedroom and living room combined, with the kitchen tucked away at the side. A separate bathroom and clothing storage space complete the house. Spare is the word best employed to describe Caribbean Stone Cottage. This is the place where you throw away all the clutter from your life and get back to basics. Comfortable, yet carefree.

Recently updated, the house boasts all new 100% cotton bedding, plenty of feather pillows and new, locally made furniture. The ambience is serene, with splashes of tropical colours in textiles to give that tropical feeling.

Outside, a spacious porch the width of the house is used for lounging, communing with nature, alfresco dining and simply soak- ing up the splendour of the area. Caribbean Stone Cottage is set in several acres of garden and rolling grassy knolls. Located on a main road, yet tucked away, you will revel in the island surroundings.

The main village of Clifton is located a 20 minute walk down the hill. Here you will find all your provisioning requirements, bank, restaurants and additional services and products, as well as the lively Clifton Harbour, a favourite anchorage for visiting yachts. Jeep and scooter rentals are available on the island for those who prefer to have transportation at their door. Local buses can be used for trips to and from the village or to beaches and points of interest in Union Island.
