The Spice of The Caribbean – Overlooking Port Louis Marina in Grenada
Grenada is an island of impossible beauty. Stunning scenery of wildly jagged mountain peaks, magnificent unspoilt beaches, hidden coves, waterfalls, spice plantations and lush verdant rainforests, fused with the fauna and friendliness of the true West Indies.
At the heart of Grenada overlooking the historic capital of St. George’s to the north, the Caribbean Sea to the west and the stunning Camper & Nicholsons Port Louis Marina and mountain range to the east, the setting for Peter de Savary’s collection of hillside residential villas offers something for everyone. Notably, for those interested in combining their yachting lifestyle with contemporary Caribbean living.
The first phase of development at Port Louis includes an intimate collection of luxury villas on lots that can accommodate homes up to 6,000 square feet with five different turnkey designs to choose from, featuring three to six bedrooms complete with furniture packages. Alternatively, villa plots may be purchased with custom homes designed to meet any particular needs of buyers.
As there is an innate value associated with marina-side residential real estate, the Port Louis development represents a unique opportunity for early investors to acquire an asset that is sure to increase in value as the commercial village opposite the marina continues to develop and new amenities become available.
The marina itself continues to attract more and more visitors – already a hotspot for many self-captaining small to mid-size yachts as well as notable international superyachts seeking an idyllic southern Caribbean experience.
Port Louis’ village already features the Victory Bar and Restaurant, retail shops, swimming pool and mini-market for daily necessities as well as the soon to open YOLO – a fully stocked bar featuring special cocktails, wines from around the world, tapas and sushi. As the marina village is set to include a range of additional retail outlets and boutiques, a spa, luxury hotel and yacht club – getting in early on Port Louis’ residential offering is an attractive prospect indeed.
Savills International, the agent responsible for both marina berth and residential sales at Port Louis, are optimistic about the project’s potential despite a slowdown that has affected other Caribbean destinations during the downturn. Savills’ Caribbean Director, James Burdess says “it is my considered opinion that Grenada has the best opportunity for an uplift of prices and to fulfill its long term potential better than any other Caribbean island.” Recentresidential sales at Port Louis and other nearby developments bring credence to comments from Burdess.
Residential owners at Port Louis enjoy a full management service and the opportunity to include their homes in a rental pool. Purchasing property in Grenada is a straightforward process and the experienced Port Louis team is able to assist buyers through every step of the buying process, including favourable tax reductions negotiated for non-Grenadians purchasing at Port Louis.
Ownership of a yacht berth is a natural complement to owning a marina-side property and Camper & Nicholsons has yacht berths from 12m to 90m available on 30-year licenses, with special discounts available to property buyers. The value of marina berths are sure to increase in value along with the real estate, as they have in other locations, and should owners not use their berths, a 60% share of any sub-rental income is available by allowing the berth to be rented through the marina.
While the residential and retail Marina Village at Port Louis is further developed, residential owners need not wait to enjoy luxurious amenities and facilities – De Savary’s Mount Cinnamon is a only few minutes’ drive or short boat ride away from Port Louis Marina.
Residential owners and visitors to the marina can purchase an exclusive day-membership to the Mount Cinnamon Beach Club for some luxury following their cruising experience in the Grenadines. Soak up the vibrantly coloured atmosphere playing beach volleyball, sailing a Hobie cat, or lazing with a rum punch poolside or on the talcum powder white sand beach.

• All facilities, bar, grill, restrooms and showers
