This have to be a hobby for you guys or some joke thing because I can't believe that this business is your main source of income. Things as basic as toilet tissue, clean towels and utensils couldn't be provided. Two bedrooms and in one room a broken bed. One fan which but the way had to be "jump-started". I hope persons that booked this apartment have a better experience then I did.
This apartment lacks basic amenities. No toilet paper was provided, when i asked if this is the norm i was told yes and that i would have to buy. I thought arrangements were made for transportation into the city, when i asked about this was told i had to take the bus. i had no problems taking the bus but i was under the impression that transportation was already sorted. Kitchen utensils were brought down to our apartment from their house. there is no safe in the apartment, the towels provided were dirty. one of the beds in the room was broken and my friends and i were told the smallest person would have to sleep on the bed. we ended up taking the mattress and all sleeping in one room. We checked out the next day and the remainder of our stay in Dominica was spent at a hotel. The wifi sucks, had to stand up at a window the entire night trying to get a signal. On the bright side; its located few mins walk to hot springs and a sulphur spa. If you are looking for cheap accommodation and is willing to endure this go right ahead.
My 2 friends and I stayed at Anthurium apartment for 5 days and our experience is unforgettable.
When we arrived , we were expected at the port by the son of Alitha to drive us to the apartment.
The apartment is simple , spacious, clean and well located. We didn’t need air condition, the air was good.
Understandable and kind she did everything to make us comfortable.
Her son, Sherwin, is lovely . he is great as a guide. He loves his country and knows it very well.
He allowed us to visit lot of places in Dominica and was very responsive to our requests.
Despite that we were 3 girls (not easy to live ), he was always remained respectful, determined and very friendly.
If you like hiking , eat well and feel good , the best address is Alitha’s family.
THANKS A LOT we will come back.

We had a truly wonderful experience staying in Alitha's cottage (next to the apartment). Alitha and her family were extremely helpful and kind to us and they made us feel so welcome. The cottage is basic but was perfectly adequate for our needs. It has a porch with beautiful views of the valley. Alitha offers the option of preparing meals for guests; we chose to eat dinners and one breakfast and were glad we did. Alitha is an excellent cook and has help from her daughter, Lieselle. Sherwin, Alitha's son, guided us on a hike. He made all the arrangements for us and was very good, making sure we were comfortable and safe. Alitha's is located in a beautiful, rural setting, close to sulphur springs, and about a 30 minute walk to Trafalgar Falls, Papillote Gardens and River Rock Cafe. Public buses to Roseau pass by frequently. Thank you Alitha, Sherwin and Lieselle for making us feel so at home.
Anthurium Apartment is the ideal place to live a true local experience in the amazing Roseau Valley. Alitha and her family are very warm and welcoming. The apartment is large and clean with a wonderful view. Try the homecook meals prepared with fresh local food. Everything is delicious with true caribbean flavour! From the apartment you are at a few minutes walk from beautiful thermal sources. We wish we could have stay longer. Thank you again Alitha for everyting!
