About this Hotel

Price From $85

Tired of his job as a commodities trader, Dave Goldhill left Manhattan in 1977 for the Caribbean, eventually landing on Carriacou, a sleepy, 13-square-mile island of white-sand beaches in the Grenadines.

"Back then there was just a small community of ex-colonials here," says Dave. "I never imagined I'd meet Ulla." A tall and slender Dane who sailed from Europe to the Caribbean on an 80-foot schooner, Ulla stumbled across Dave in a rum shop in 1984. The two married, had three kids, and bought a piece of oceanfront near the village of Windward.

They built four simple one-room cottages to rent out, painting them in bright shades of red, blue, green, and yellow.

Each cottage is a little different (the green one has two full-size beds, star and moon fretwork, and sweeping views of a handful of the Grenadines from its patio), but all are within a minute's walk of the property's small stretch of rock and sand beach.

There's a shack at the water's edge where you can grab a kayak and paddle out to a sun-drenched sandbar. Snorkelers spend hours exploring the German fishing boat that ran aground on a nearby reef in 1990.
