Ixora Villa is an easy 4 mile ride from the airport, an easy drive to the 2 beaches we enjoyed, and 2 miles to the very important IGA. Upon arrival to the house, we were greeted by Kim, the villa's indispensable general manager, who showed us around and answered our questions. She had already stocked the kitchens with items we had requested so we relaxed, had a drink and settled in for fun in the sun.
As pictured, the villa has a lovely dunking pool which was perfect for our grandchild and cooling relief from the heat. All the bedrooms had A/C, comfortable beds and well appointed baths. The living space was nicely furnished as was the dining area and the kitchen was adequately equipped. Needs some things if you are preparing meals for a group but one is able to make do.
It was when the sun went down that the flaw was revealed, there were no screens in the living area , dining room and kitchen, just the bedrooms. So the lovely breeze that made the house so nice during the day had to be closed off to limit the mosquitoes. And given the water location which is near swamp land, the pests are plentiful and hungry. There are fans to move air but the competition between relaxation and defense was fierce. Had there been screens on windows and screen doors, the visit would have been outstanding.
We had an issue with hot water but Kim and her handy husband interrupted their Christmas to promptly replace the switch. Kim was like a world class concierge.
We likes Granada, the few residents we met were friendly, the beaches very nice, the non VAT food and rum very affordable as were the two restaurants we ate at.
We go south for sun and relaxation, to be together as a family and with screens we would consider Villa Ixora again.
Ixora is a well-appointed villa located in L'anse Aux Epines. The response-time to any inquiries or issues we had was excellent, but I would say it is necessary to confirm with the Villa owner or Mgr what exactly is included in the rental price re: basics and housekeeping.
Our group had an overall nice time there and would surely recommend Ixora to friends interested in holidaying in Grenada.
