Self-Contained for Self-Catering Cottages
Updated: Feb 03 17 Created: Sep 15 14
Self-contained: Each cottage is a separate building with its own solar electricity, hot and cold water, bathroom(s), kitchen, bedrooms and sitting area.
Self-catering: You'll bring your own food and essential supplies - and prepare meals in your fully-equipped kitchen. Or make use of the picnic area and barbecue. And of course you can always enjoy eating out.
You'll find a selection of local food choices in nearby stores and markets. Shopping is either 10 minutes away in Marigot, or 25 minutes to the village of Calibishie.
A Paradise for Your Family

Just steps from your door is a charming little river complete with a "paddling" pool for toddlers and a swimming hole for older children. We have tubes for extra fun in the water.
There's plenty of room for children to play and explore. And we have a crib for the little ones.
Please note: For your safety, we insist that children be supervised at all times.

A Paradise for Hikers and Bird Enthusiasts
Updated: Sep 15 14 Created: Sep 10 14
Dominica is called "The Nature Island" because so much of it is still undeveloped and unspoiled. It is home to over a hundred bird species, including parrots and hummingbirds.
Ask Sandra or Stephen about arranging a guided day trip with a local bird expert.

There are many hiking and walking trails through the tropical forest - ranging from a pleasant stroll to an all-day trek. For the most difficult, we recommend you engage a guide.
In our own gardens, you'll encounter a wide range of plants and flowers.
Your first adventure is a drive through banana fields - 4 x 4 is not needed.
