It's the pink house at the top of Grotto Bay - the closest house to the beach!
Relax in your private getaway, where every room provides a view of the beautiful blue Caribbean waters, and the path to the beach is steps from your door.
Feel the soft white sand between your toes as you explore the beach in search of shells, or head straight for the refreshing aquamarine water of Grotto Bay. There's a reef a few feet off shore where you can try out your snorkeling skills, or you can swim out a bit further and explore the grotto.
The island is famous for diving the wall; deep sea fishing, eco-tours and fishing at Pigeon Creek.
As noted in Frommer’s, if you're after glitz, gambling, bustling restaurants, nightclubs, and a beach-party scene, the big three islands (New Providence, Grand Bahamas, Paradise Island) are where you'll want to be. If you want to kick back, de-stress and walk along a beach where yours may be the only footprints, explore the Family Islands – come to San Salvador! It is small; there are no traffic lights and little traffic. The people you'll meet are friendly and the island is beautiful enough that Club Med chose it as their Caribbean vacation destination.
The beach house is clean and comfortably furnished - 3 BR (double beds), LR, DR, galley kitchen and 2 baths. There's high speed internet, wi-fi, AC. We can provide information about car rentals and our housekeeper will greet you at the airport and provide any information you need (e.g where to buy fresh fish, recommendations for tours).
So grab a snorkel and mask and get started making memories that will last a lifetime!
$150/night. Minimum 3 nights.
weekly - $1000
Bar none this place has the prettiest beach we have ever been to. The house had everything we needed. Great view, very comfortable. I would highly recommend this property 🌴🇧🇸👍👍
The road to this house is rough!! The views are spectacular. The ocean under toe was very strong closest to the house but if you walk down a bit its much better and snorkeling is good. The housekeeper- Nicola is the best asset to the property. She met us at the airport, showed us the local stores and answered questions along the way. This island and more specifically, this house, is very isolated. The phone would not dial out so make sure your cell works. Day one our rental car wouldn't start, after trying the phone, our cell wouldn't work, we were about to panic when I remembered to use the whats app to contact Nicola. She handled everything! Called the guy who rented the car and he brought out another. But scary since we were isolated and no cars or traffic in site for days. Also, the tv wouldn't work, not even for movies. I sent messages to the owner 2 times and received no response. Water pressure was weak.
Had a lovely vacation on San Sal at Grotto beach !! Karen and Neal are great to work with! Nicola is a gem as their caretaker ! Could not have been more relaxed if we tried ! Weather was perfect ! I've been looking for this house to rent again for a few years, was so excited it was back again ! So thankful to Karen and Neal for putting it back on, we came a while back with our teenage boys, they had the best time, reef right out the door. My son speared his first lobster there. One of my son's is now PhD Marine Biologist ! Please believe me if you want to bond with your family or spouse this is an amazing place ! It's not the Ritz in name , but the Ritz in our book ! Lovingly -Christine
We stayed at the Grotto Bay house in early January 2019 and had a great time! The house is located on the hill just above Grotto Bay beach with a 1-minute walk to the beach, and it would be hard to imagine a house better situated. There is a covered shelter there, as well as sandy swimming areas and a diverse and active reef system that is perfect for snorkeling. A few other houses are located on the same road, but we were often the only people at the beach. The house logistics were all taken care of by the owners and local housekeeper, Nicola, who managed everything wonderfully while we were there. She was so helpful at getting us settled in and checking to see that we had everything we needed throughout the week. Our family rented a car from Nat Walker on the island, which worked out well. It is necessary to have a car to drive into Cockburn Town (about a 20 minute drive) and to drive to other snorkeling spots and beaches on the island. The house was well-stocked with linens and kitchen utensils and has air conditioning and wifi. There was a large freshwater jug for cooking and drinking that can be refilled in Cockburn Town, and tap water can be used for showering. The island, town, and people were all very nice. In general, it is important to bring cash to pay for most things, but one grocery does take VISA credit cards. There are beautiful beaches and other snorkeling sites around the island that are fun to visit. Overall, the beach and snorkeling were incredible and made the vacation amazing, with the house being a perfect place to stay to enjoy the island!
