Car Rental

We use Thrify/Dollar car rental when we are on the island.  We get good service, reliable cars and it is very convenient to our condo.  We deal with Vic Dabie and if you decide to use them mention that you are our guests and ask that he provide you with his best rate.  You can email Vic to get quotes.   There is a shuttle bus outside the terminal that will take you to pick up your vehicle.

Nespresso Coffee Distributor

The Nespresso coffee machine in our condo requires specific coffee pods.  The coffee pods are available at Bacchus Restaurant.  Bacchus is also a wine distributer with a great selection of wines.  It is a great restaurant that is opened only for lunch.  Don't let the location fool you as this is a very fine dining experience well worth the price (quite expensive).  The restaurant is in the industrial complex of Hope Estate  behind the US Food Store.  Hope Estate is just outside of Grand Case.  They also provide a wide selection of prepared food that you can take home and reheat.
