On a lovely location overlooking the sea on Dominica's northeast coast, these five cottages are an eco tourist delight as we do try to live up to the name of Dominica as "the nature island of the Caribbean"
The cottages are all solar powered for their electricity and hot water needs and we compost and deal with the garbage in a responsible manner. The water from the taps is clean and fresh for drinking as it is piped down from the mountains.
Self catering , totally equipped for short or longer term holidays each cottage is slightly different in size and design. All are spacious and airy with cathedral ceilings and tiled throughout. with full kitchens, bathrooms, sitting rooms and balcony's . There is plenty of space for families in the larger cottages and the smaller cottages provide a romantic getaway for couples.
All the cottages except the Studio have cable TV,and each is provided with a cell phone and free wifi for those who have their laptops.
The kitchens are fully equipped with crockery , coffee makers, juicers etc. Towels and linens are provided as well.
We are on a small lane along the sea and the grounds are planted with fruit trees, flowers and palms. With three acres everyone has their privacy to enjoy the outdoors
The views are wonderful as we look down on Hodges Bay and river with the mountains to the south. The beach is about a five minute walk down the path and there you can find a small reef for snorkeling, sandy beach for swimming and a fresh water river to dive into and rinse off after your sea bath. There are several other beaches within walking distance for swimming as well as places to hike and explore. A lovely secluded waterfall and pool is found about three miles away which is a perfect spot to swim and picnic. If you walk up into the hills behind Sea Cliff you will find small farms growing banana, citrus , avocado and root crops. The narrow roads wind along the top of the ridges. Parrots can be found nesting in the trees and the views looking over the mountains and down to the sea are truly breathtaking.
Woodfordhill beach and Turtle Beach , about two miles away, are known for the giant sea turtles coming in to lay their eggs. An incredible sight if you are lucky enough to be there at the right time.
The village of Calibishie is about a mile or a twenty minute walk .There you will find restaurants, grocery stores and post office. The people are friendly and helpful so it is easy to make contact and learn about the diverse culture of this island.
Sea Cliff is a place to relax, hike, swim, birdwatch and learn about the wonders of the land. Photographers and artists will be delighted with the scenery as will everyone else
