about us

Andrea Nyack

The only daughter of a Swiss mother and Grenadian father, I grew up in Switzerland. My passion for the hospitality industry began during my college years; what originated as a means to an end, became increasingly more my dream.
Cooking and baking, inviting friends around and preparing a superb meal for them, are things I have always loved to do. Having been able to fulfill my dream of owning a guesthouse with a restaurant on my father’s native island is wonderfully exciting, intoxicating, and simply super! A dream I have shared with Bernhard, and together we brought it to life. It was a long way from buying an old house and transforming it into a bright and airy, modern but cozy guesthouse and restaurant where we can offer you an extraordinary culinary experience, enhanced with Swiss professionalism and indigenous ingredients.
From a French literature student with a passion for cooking, I initially became a secondary school teacher. After further education I've taught General Education at a vocational school in Switzerland. I still enjoy teaching and will continue to teach. As per the last few years I will take positions as a temporary teacher, but now only during the island’s low season (the summer months), when the weather in Switzerland can be quite wonderful.

about what we offer

The two most important qualities we provide here at the armadillo are:

Relaxation: a retreat away from the crowds, mass tourism and the hectic tourist centre; tucked away and far from the hustle and bustle of the capital city and the mainstream tourist centres.


Enjoyment: culinary, literary, artistic, sporting, nature!

about getting around in Grenada

Renting a car or getting on a local bus - it all depends on how you would like to explore the island!

Many of our guests have chosen the local buses and have not regretted it. They were all excited about the experience of getting to know the friendly people and the Grenadian way of how things are.

Bus drivers pick you up where ever you stand by road, don't worry, they will see you! For a little extra money and if it's possible for them to do it they will also do a little extra turn for you and drop you off on your favourite beach.

There are no buses on Sundays, just a few on Saturdays and on weekdays you should make sure you get back home before 7pm.

Of course, renting a car is more comfortable. And you can drive to everywhere. 24/7. Please let us know if you wish our help with renting a car.

Hiking: there are many beautiful hikes with stunning views and breathtakingly secluded beaches

about hoping over to Carriacou...

... and where to stay there.

You'll find comfortable airy studios, self-contained, in the perfect spot right at Tyrell Bay, where you have shopping and restaurants close, local busses right in front of the house and the most beautiful sunsets that Carriacou offers, at the COCONUT INN

Or rent your own villa: the Hummingbird Beach House sits on a sheltered cove, resting naturally on the edge of the sea, nestled in a lush garden. It is one of the few villas on Carriacou with direct beach access. Figee beach is a safe, calm and secluded beach on the west coast of Carriacou.
