I stayed at this accomodation for one week with my husband and grandfather. My husband had already visited Dominica several times and although his visits were mainly to see family, he indeed enjoyed the island and spoke highly of its beauty. My husband's reports of the beauty of Dominica--the friendly nature, diverse identity and pride of the people and beautifully unique landscape--were precise! No other island is like Dominica.
Upon arriving on the island, the host had kindly arranged for transport. However, both having a profession in the field of mental health and addictions, there was some good evidence that the driver, though kind and generous with his time, appeared intoxicated (expressed aggressive verbal behaviour towards airport security, seemed to be drinking spiked drink and we wondered whether he also accepted a drink from a neighbour--another reason we decided to walk down to a nearby hotel rather than accept a ride, when we realised we didn't have the correct keys for the accomodation).When we queried drinking to the driver and the host, this was denied.
As for the accomodation, the pictures were true to how the place appeared and location convenient. We just required a short ten minutes drive/bus ride or a 25-30 minutes leisurely walk into Roseau. Relatively clean, though I did need to clean and tidy some areas, particularly the ensuite bathroom and bedroom closet, dining table before use. Neighbours very helpful and sympathetic. We acknowledge that the host tried to meet the minimum requirements in accordance with the details listed on the website. However, internet did not work despite following instructions given, water heater didn't work either (would have been healing to our muscles after long days of hiking and walking). And, unfortunately, as mentioned, we were locked out on the first night, for which despite our efforts of calling and explaining this to the host, speaking with neighbours, even climbing up the balcony in hope of gaining access through a window (as suggested by the hosts partner) the host wasn't able to present with the correct keys until the following morning. There were no measures put in place to account for this, the internet or water heating problems leaving is to seek overnight stay at a nearby hotel that was most accommodating. Grateful the host made the necessary effort to get us settled in so that we could get on with our holiday plans. In summary, our trip to Dominica was worth it and the island's beauty remains unmatched. However, the host seemed rather disorganised despite her efforts. Grateful for having an accomodation but the quality of it was compromised.
