I can't imagine a better place to stay in Dominica. The cottage is perfect for two and in the perfect location, right on the edge of the village of Calibishie. It's nestled right on it's own beach on the Atlantic side of the island and thanks to an offshore reef the water is very swimmable. The water is warm, clean and calm.
The Cottage is basically a studio apartment with a fully stocked kitchen, a beautiful rain shower and double doors that open to a deck with the most breathtaking view you will ever get at this price anywhere in the world! The front of the house offers a view of a stunning jungle cliff that shades the house most of the day.
There's no AC but fortunately there's no need for it. The shade, breeze off the ocean and the fan over the bed keep the place a very comfortable temperature all day and night. I actually found myself turning down the fan at night because it got a little chilly! We never once closed the doors to the deck though, the sound of the waves lapping against the shore lulled us to sleep every night. There's cable TV (for all you crazy people who want to watch TV while in paradise) and WiFi that is actually very fast and reliable.
The location right on the edge of town is great. Calibishie is a friendly little village and all the shops, snackettes, restaurants and bars are just a short stroll away but you won't be smack dab in the middle of the action ensuring a quiet, restful place to retreat to anytime you want. In the other direction up the road is the most beautiful jungle with wonderful views and some incredible beaches.
The owners, Webster and Freda are great as well. They are a really friendly couple who are always available with any questions you may have and to make arrangements for things like tours or car rentals. They provide a local cell phone so you can contact them whenever you need to. We were always glad to see them so we could share our adventures with them and ask for advice on what to do next.
Our trip to Dominica is one of the best we've ever taken and we can't thank Webster and Freda enough for being such wonderful hosts! The Buena Vista exceeded our expectations in every way.
