Posted in: Digital Nomad Lifestyle, Grenada, Our Story

Living on the southern Caribbean Island of Spice for the past four months has been fantastic, and it’s not over yet! We still have another three months of living in the tropics, which we’re very much looking forward to.

This is our first time pet-sitting abroad and it’s been a wonderful experience. Our lifestyle here is relaxed, peaceful and calm – which is exactly what we were looking for when we agreed to come to Grenada. We are now into the rainy season, which has completely brought the island to life! Everything is so lush, vibrant and green.

Mornings are spent watching hummingbirds flutter by and slowly making our coffee and breakfast before starting work. We work online for two hours before breaking for a walk to the next beach with Spare Dog and a quick swim in the sea.

Afternoons are spent working some more before quitting for the day and taking Spare somewhere further away, usually for a car ride and another hike. Our evenings are very quiet. Often we’ll have a BBQ, play cards, watch movies and enjoy a glass of wine. The sound of crickets and other jungle bugs is deafening – but is a noise we’ve come to love.

Weekends are our “days off” and we try to explore somewhere new in Grenada, or revisit some of our favourite spots. We love going for sunset, lazing on the pristine beaches, enjoying happy hour at the beachside restaurants and going for long jungle hikes. There are so many things to do in Grenada, we’re never bored!

Here are some photos that will hopefully give you a better idea of what our life in Grenada is like! Enjoy.

  1. It looks like you guys are living it up! And what better place than Grenada to dog-sit the world’s cutest dog? I love seeing all the different things that Grenada has to offer. The waterfalls and beaches are gorgeous. And it must be pretty awesome to have fresh produce delivered to you every week. Looks like a good life to me 🙂

  2. Granada looks amazing! That’s nice that you have fresh veggies delivered to your doorstep. How are the seafood options like?

  3. Thanks for the comment Justine 🙂 He really is the world’s most perfect dog and this is such a gorgeous island, we’re loving it!


  4. The seafood here is delicious. Mahi mahi, marlin, tuna, lobster, conch and more! Not everything is in season though 🙂

  5. Two questions ,do you live there all the time and how much a month to live .

  6. Hi Leon,

    We are living here for 7 months. Check out this article we just wrote about the cost of living in Grenada:


  7. Hello! Thanks for the great pictures. I am on the island now and will stay for some weeks. My wife and I will start a three day island roundtrip tomorrow. Could you please let us know where to find the hikes for “driftwood beach” and “blowhole”?
    Maybe you can create a marker on or give me a good description that we can find it?

  8. Hi Jochen…I’m not sure how to tell you the way to those two hikes! The Blowhole is in Fort Jeudy, while the bamboo beach is near La Sagesse 🙂

  9. What a wonderful place to settle for a while! It looks like you two are enjoying a very relaxing life. And Spare is soo cute!

  10. Spare Dog is the best 🙂 We’ve since left Grenada, but will be returning in June!
