We really enjoyed our three night stay at the Buena Vista cottage and would highly recommend the cottage for anyone looking for a SC option in Calibishie. It's clean and comfortable and has everything you need. It's right on the beach and we enjoyed sleeping with the windows open and hearing the waves break on the outer reef.. We loved the golden beach in front where you could swiim, and enjoyed walking into town for dinner. Webster and Frida are great hosts, very welcoming people and they were a great introduction to Dominica for us as this was our first stop on our tour around the island. They were always available to help out and were very accommodating. We hope to return and would definitely stay here again! Thanks Frida and Webster!
The only thing better than the view and location were our hosts, Webster and Freda. Nothing was overlooked in that cottage. Calibishie provided us with the laid back atmosphere we were seeking. When we requested some guide services as we did not rent a car, our hosts provided that as well. We saw and learned so much about Dominica that we would not have known otherwise and felt that it enhanced our time there immensely. The restaurants provided great food and the breadman makes a stop each evening right near the cottage with great fresh bread and sweet buns making breakfast an event each day. The beaches within walking distance of the cottage from Pointe Baptiste and Red Rocks to the area right outside our cottage kept us engaged from the first moment to the last of our stay. Our only regret was leaving.
Very clean, well appointed beach house. Webster and Freda could not have been more considerate hosts. They even loaned us, without asking, a local mobile phone. When we had difficulty recharging it they bought a new one!
Buena Vista is indeed situated right on the beach. Few people visit Calibishie beach so it is like having your personal beach. Especially since the neighbor Olivia rakes it each morning.
Pelicans and Frigate birds are common and an Osprey visits the bay most days. The village of Calibishie is a quiet spot, consisting mainly of a Main Street. There is one bank, one ATM, three grocery stores and some rum shops. And two or three restaurants. You can walk to all these in five or ten minutes. Tiny barbecues open up in the evenings grilling chicken or sweetcorn. Then they may be closed for a few days, all very informal. Generally in Dominica people are very friendly
brings the reality of 'on the beach', cant get much closer. well positioned villa on the edge of town, quiet with your own private beach with only 5 mins to the bars & shops. superb villa with great owners.
