Fodor's Expert Review Dennis' Hideaway

Above Saline Bay, , Mayreau, VC0460, St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Each room in this hilltop guesthouse has a private balcony with a perfect view of the sun as it sets over Saline Bay. About a three-minute walk from the beach, the rooms are simple: a pair of twin beds, a nightstand, a chair, a private bath, and a place to hang some clothes. A large swimming pool is adjacent to the open-air dining terrace. Dennis (who plays guitar two nights a week, also happens to be a former shrimp-boat captain and is currently one of the island's three justices of the peace) is a charmer. The seafood (lobster, shrimp, fried squid, sautéed octopus, conch, or kingfish) at the restaurant is great, the drinks are strong, and the view is heavenly. If you'd rather go for something meaty, there's rack of lamb, barbecued spareribs or chicken, grilled lamb, or pork chops. Dennis will transport inn guests arriving at Union Island Airport on his sailing yacht (a 45-minute voyage) or speedboat (15 minutes). Or he can collect you by car from the dock at either bay on Mayreau.
