With just under two thousand registered rooms in Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique, the Grenada Tourism Authority’s new Homestay programme aims to expand the nation’s room stock while diversifying the tourism product.
This Homestay programme offers homeowners the opportunity to earn extra income and to exchange cultural traditions with a visitor. This ongoing programme is opened to persons who have apartments for short-term rental or extra rooms within their households.
Interested homeowners are encouraged to complete the application process on or before Friday, 27 February 2015. Completed application forms are to be delivered to the headquarters of the Grenada Tourism Authority (GTA) along with a passport photo, a police record, and a non-refundable administrative fee of $50.00. Homes will then be audited by the GTA and successful applicants will receive a certificate of registration along with a property listing on the destination’s official website, www.puregrenada.com.
Application forms are available at www.puregrenada.com/homestay and at the GTA office on the Carenage, St George’s. For further information and guidance please call 440 2279 or 440 2001.
