My wife and I stayed at Jenny's Place for three nights in June. It's a cute, small beachside inn with 6-10 comfy, spacious rooms. Jenny's is located at the very northwest end of the Grand Anse beach.
We were in the Heliconia room, which is one of the upstairs rooms -- it was very spacious with a very high ceiling, a small balcony with a table and two chairs, and a comfortable bed. Nothing a fancy room, but very spacious and comfortable. Came with a coffee maker and a small fridge. The room was normally ~$140 USD, but cost only $100/night during June because it their off season.
Jenny's place is right on the beach. From our room, it was 30 yards to the beach -- you pass through the inn's restaurant and beachside bar, called "The Edge", where we had drinks and dinner the first night of our stay. "The Edge" then closed to undergo renovations but is probably open again by now. It's a nice place to hang out away from the crowded, busy resorts. The Edge wasn't open for breakfast, so we ate breakfast both mornings at the small inn next door, which was fine.
From The Edge, one can walk down the beach (Grand Anse) -- you will pass by a few other much fancier, pricey international resorts (Radisson, Spice Island, Coyoba, Mount Cinnamon). On our last day, we walked down the beach and stopped in at couple of the other resorts -- a Father's Day brunch at the Radisson, and drinks with a friend at Spice Island). We were paying a fraction of the cost of staying at these resorts but were able to enjoy some of the same amenities.
To get into town from Jenny's (or to get to the other end of Grand Anse beach), walk 100 yards up to the main road and there's a bus stop where you can catch a #1 bus (actually a minivan) into town (or to the other end of the beach) .You are unlikely to wait more than a minute for a #1 bus. The buses are mostly used by locals and can be crowded, but it's a fun way to experience a little bit of local life, the music will be great, and the bus rides can be entertaining. The fare for any length journey between anywhere along Grand Anse and St. George's is only about $EC 3.00 per person, so much, much cheaper than calling a taxi. To signal the driver when you want to get off, rap a nearby window and he'll pull over.
Jenny's is not a fancy place. The manager was really nice and helpful - she was expecting us when we arrived. During the day, there's often not anyone in the office, but one can probably access help by walking down to the restaurant and asking for help there. We didn't really need any services, so the lack of a staffed office during the day didn't bother us.
The only downside of Jenny's is there is a large resort under construction right next door (think it's far behind schedule). But we didn't notice any construction noise in the early morning or evening, so it didn't bother us at all. When you walk down the beach, you will pass in front of the construction, but we didn't mind.
