Olga’s… A Grenada Bed Breakfast Without The Breakfast

Olga's Darbeau St. George's Grenada Bed & Breakfast accommodations stadiumDo any of these describe you?

  • You don’t care to spend the big money at a Grenada Hotel.
  • You want to be close to the capital St. George’s.
  • You are attending an event at the national stadium like cricket or carnival and want to be in walking distance.
  • You’re the kind of traveler always seeking an authentic experience, which means being among the locals?

If any of the above describes you then Olga’s in Stadium View (formerly Darbeau) might just be the perfect place for you.

Olga’s is run and operated by… you guessed it: Olga better known as Ms. Olga. It’s an air conditioned 2 bedroom 1 bath apartment. There is Cable TV and I think wireless Internet will soon be installed. So think of Olga’s like a Grenada Bed and Breakfast… Except…

Ms. Olga is not in the business of serving Breakfast, so she did the next best thing. She installed a full kitchen, which includes stove, refrigerator, microwave, pots, pans and cooking utensils. So walk with your chef hat and Cook On!! The supermarket is nearby, and if that does not work for you, there are lots of good Grenada Restaurants to sample.

Here are some pictures of the accommodations at Olga’s. Just roll the mouse over them to expand:

The apartment sits on a hill like most of the village houses. It gives you a magnificent view of the outer harbor, the southern tip of Grenada, and the National Stadium. Step onto the veranda and that’s the view that greets you each day.

You also have a private driveway for your rental car, but being on a hill it takes some skill to navigate. So unless you are used to hilly terrains you might be better off parking at the foot of the hill.

Here are some more pictures, this time showing the sourrounding views:

Olga’s sits in a little tropical garden with lovely Grenada
flowers. If you are lucky, you just might catch the bananas,
papaya, grapefruit, or coconut reeady for the taking

Driveway … a little on the tight side, but more than adequate
for a large 4X4 if you have the skill to get it in.

You can find a bakery and supermarket over there.
It’s an easy 10 minute stroll.

You and the Village Life

I must admit that I’m a little bias abourt the village of Darbeau since I grew up there. It’s a typical Grenada village with mostly polite, friendly folks, so if you like to mingle with locals you will feel very much at home.

Cricket & Soccer

Olga’s is a favorite among cricket fans travelling with their teams, be it Windies, Aussies or whomever. They all love the very close proximity to the Grenada National Stadium. It’s literally a 2 minitue walk to the grounds of the Stadium… and if the stands were not as high you can see the entire match from your veranda.

Darbeau has produced numerous national football (soccer) stars over the years, including shalrie Joseph who now plays in the US MLS league for New England Revolution. So soccer (football) is big in Darbeau, and the surrounding villages. You most definitely will see the guys out ‘running’ a game, and if you bring your gears (and skills) they will definitely welcome you.

The same goes for a game of cricket.

Transport

The buses pick you up and drop you off right at Olga’s gate. It’s a 5 minute ride by bus or car to St. George’s; or an easy 15 minutes walk while enjoying the sites along the way. Once in St. George’s you can catch another bus to anywhere in Grenada.

    Thank you so much Olga’s bed n breakfast. What a wonderful time I had let’s say this was a perfect home away from home. My Autistic son was sooooo at home here. Your recommended Taxi driver/tour guide/now friend was the best of all. The rooms were clean, spacious and well taken of. The view from outside was so beautiful, just to go outside and look down at the sea melt my troubles away. My autistic son soon fell in love with the apartment refering to it as “home”. What a joy as this was my biggest fear (Autistic people don’t like change they stick to a routine). I know that I have lost some pounds as I could not resist the walks into the shopping town “wow”. Again I say “THANK YOU” Olga’s bed and breafast.
