About Eric Poot
We are a Belgian family who is used to work and travel on the 5 continents. Our first visit to Grenada dates back to 1987! After visiting other quite busy Caribbean islands, it was a real surprise to discover a such paradise: the place was charming, and did not changed much since then. We bought Owl Cottage in 2011, after an active search of two years to find the best buy as a holiday and hide away house, in the same time able to be presented for rent for the lucky one's who want to share our choice: Grenada as a perfect holiday destination! In addition to our work and travels, we are also a sailing family, and L'Anse-aux-Epines is a fantastic harbour, where our sail boat drops the anchor quite often since 2009.
Eric Poot purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Eric Poot chose Lance aux Epines
St. George's, Grenada's capital, is the most picturesque in the Caribbean. Grenadians are welcoming people, and all over the place you will feel a special touch of true Caribbean character. It is a friendly island, still untouched by the commercialism of mass tourism. All stores and services at a few minutes drive. Good airlines connections. Nice beaches. Rain forrest with water falls and bird life. A large choice of sport activities. Quiet and exciting in the same time. True paradise !
What makes this Cottage unique
Simple and efficient set-up, nice tropical garden, a fresh water pool for your convenience, and the beach at the bottom of the garden. A spectacular view on the bay and its numerous yachts. Nice picturesque sunset every day. The house is on Holidays Rental / Home Away since long, and we have inherited from the former owner the same team to take care of the house, the garden and the swimming pool. They like their job, and know how to welcome and accomodate our guests from various horizons.

A lovely escape
A great property in an ideal location - a wonderful 2 week escape.
Perfect Location for Families
This property is located directly across the street from the beach and in a safe neighborhood making it perfect for a small family or two couples looking to relax. The exterior grounds are beautiful with lush and vibrant landscaping surrounding the pool deck and the rest of the yard. The verandah offers panoramic views of the bay and is a great place to relax. The cottage offers all the amenities, 2 bedrooms and baths, and a fully equipped kitchen, but you will not spend any time inside. The beach, located directly across the street offers the beach restaurant sponsored by the Calabash Resort at the far end. We enjoyed a great lunch in a beautiful setting and of course the main restaurant at the resort is available as well. A little closer on the beach is a fantastic dive shop where we arranged snorkeling with spotted eagle rays and a wreck dive. And then closer is the tiki bar where we mostly enjoyed the weather, water and of course a couple of their rum punches. The neighborhood is safe allowing my kids to adventure down to the beach with no problems. I almost never want to travel back to a destination, but Grenada is wonderful with solid enough infrastructure to be able to drive yourself around and plenty to do. Owl Cottage is the perfect location to base your adventure from and I will be coming back.
Perfect location with amazing views
Our family of four visited this lovely cottage. First off, the staff that takes care of the place are great. Sparrow, Ms. Barry and Curtis treat the guests like family and the home like their own. The views from the veranda are spectacular and we enjoyed breakfast and afternoon cocktails from here. The pool is an oasis and we used it every day. The gardens are established and are beautiful. The house is great for a family of four and we were comfortable for our weeks stay. The location on the island is wonderful as it is very close to 4 restaurants and a short drive to all of the places that you want to go. I have no hesitation recommended this place. The only reason I didn't rate it as a 5 star is that the internet is very slow (2 users max online at a time), the water pressure/temperature is very low/too hot in the master shower (it was dry season when we were there) and there was no outside grill/bbq. When we visit Grenada again, I hope Owl Cottage is available for us to rent! Great place!!!
Charming cottage overlooking the bay.
The staff (house keeper, property manager and gardener) was amazing and helpful. We enjoyed the location - very easy to walk across the street to the beach for two different resorts/restaurants. We rented a car and explored the island - such a beautiful island with friendly people. Our kids loved the pool. Great getaway! We highly recommend.
Wonderful tropical retreat!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Owl Cottage. The view from the porch alone made the stay worthwhile. It was stunning!
The cottage was well equipped with everything we needed. Ashley and Greta took care of us the entire week. They are both wonderful.
The beach is a short walk down the driveway (steep! We got our workout during the week walking around Grenada's hills) and across the street.
We spent a lot of time at the pool too. It was so nice to have a private pool with plenty of shade and the cottage gardens are gorgeous.
There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance. (We did not rent a car) The Beach Club at the Calabash is right on the beach and serves lunch and tapas during the day. We had at great meal at the Red Crab and
the marina restaurant had decent pizza.
We also took a tour of the island with Ashley which I HIGHLY recommend. He is a native Grenadian who knows so much about the island and he tailored the tour specifically to our needs.
We have just recently returned from Grenada and our lovely holiday at Owl Cottage. Having spent years in the Caribbean as professional yacht crew it was great to have a "land perspective" and experience the luxury of being cared for by such a wonderful team. First and foremost, Greta (housekeeper extraordinaire) was absolutely wonderful. She was friendly but not obtrusive and so willing to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The gardener, Curtis, was also very considerate of our private time but was more than willing to answer our questions about the flora and fauna. Ashley was so very helpful in procuring a car, advise, directions, and anything else we needed. It was so nice to have someone waiting for us at the airport after a full day of travel. The cottage is exactly as pictured, and we could not have wanted for anything more. The view in the morning from the porch is unequaled. The chairs are so comfortable that you never want to move. We spent many hours with binoculars watching the birds and the yachts. The beach is right across the street and is beautiful to walk in the morning. The pool is surrounded by bright colorful flowers so when you take a swim its like swimming in a tropical garden. The outdoor shower was great after the beach, with a pretty view too!
We did a lot of exploring on the island; tropical rainforest (ask for Nequan who was an excellent waterfall guide) snorkeling, which can be arranged right down the beach at the Calabash hotel, hiking, sailing (Grand Anse Beach). The local market is a wonderful way to see and buy local produce. If you are not familiar with Caribbean markets they are not like our farmers markets in the States but worth the visit. We found almost all of the local people to be very friendly and helpful; avoid St. George when the cruise ships are in, its much nicer and calmer and the hawkers are less aggressive. We ate at some lovely restaurants, La Sageese is just wonderful. The cottage is well situated, close to restaurants (The Junction is very fun!) and a short drive into St. George. We traveled with our 16 year old daughter and she had a wonderful time. We all three felt very connected to the island, and were very sad to leave. Owl Cottage and Grenada are very special places on Earth.
The local roads in Lance Aux Epines are good, but not fully shown on the map. Owl Cottage is just 50 yards from the palm fringed, golden sand beach. It is only a short walk to the Calabash Hotel, along the beach. Also nearby, within 5 minutes walk, are 4 other restaurants including the renowned Red Crab and the Boat Yard at Prickly Bay Marina with happy hour, music nights and mini-market. Supermarkets, banks and the famous Grand Anse Beach are just 5 to 10 minutes drive away.
Other Activities: Lounging beside Pool, drinking Rum Punch. :-)
