About Grenada Vacation Rentals

Grenada Vacation Rentals is proud to represent some of the finest apartment rentals in Grenada. We keep our Collection to no more than 5 short term rentals. All of these properties are hand-selected by Grenada Vacation Rentals. Some web sites offer many hundreds or even thousands of Vacation Rentals and have no real relationship with the owner and no real protection for the consumer in the event something may go wrong. Grenada Vacation Rentals is not a huge company nor do we want to be – our goal is to continuously strive to be the best. For us, it is not about how many villas offered, it’s about the number of satisfied customers who return each year. To do that we must assure that the Rentals we represent are outstanding in their class. We strive to only offer properties, from basic to ultra-luxurious, that are all the best in their category. Also, very few companies in our business provide a Grenada office. We wanted to provide our guests with seamless customer service while visiting Grenada and felt a Grenadian presence important.
