Where to stay in Dominica
the EAST COAST

 
Sari Sari Falls

 
    East Coast
Dominica's east coast receives prevailing winds off the Atlantic Ocean. Much of the coastline is rugged and the roads twist and climb over many ridges and cliffs between frequent river valleys. Picturesque coves nestle between jagged headlands and there are the occasional stretches of shallow beach where the surf rolls in over fine, dark, volcanic sand and where turtles often come ashore to lay their eggs at night. Abundant rainfall nurtures lush vegetation - ferns, heliconia, climbing cheese plants etc., along with our plantations of coconuts, bananas and other tropical produce. From the Pagua River, the road weaves south through the Carib Territory, where fruit, freshly squeezed juices and local handicrafts such as basket weaving and carvings may be purchased from small roadside kiosks. Beyond Castle Bruce, the coast road ends at Petit Soufriere. To continue south, one must head inland from Castle Bruce, to bear left at the first junction after passing the Emerald Pool Visitor Centre, rejoining the coast at the Rosalie River mouth. The scenery along this southerly stretch is particularly striking, as the many forest clad mountains within the Morne Trois Pitons National Park tower steeply above, their peaks often shrouded by cloud. Hiking trails to two of our most beautiful waterfalls are accessed from this side - the trail to Sari Sari Falls is about an hour each way from above La Plaine, and the Victoria Falls on the White River (flowing south east from the Boiling Lake) may be reached from Delices. Also, from Rosalie Bat, the road up and through the village of Grand Fond continues as a hiking trail up to the Freshwater Lake, situated at an altutude of 2,500ft..

NEAR TO MID EAST COAST
BANANA LAMA COTTAGE
  Banana Lama Cottage

Location:            Newfoundland Estate, bordering Cacao River, 2 miles inland from Rosalie, mid east coast. 
Brief Description:   Andy (sea captain and engineer) and Melissa (architect and chef) have sailed the world whilst captaining the boats of others. On visiting Dominica, it was not a difficult decision for them to make to relocate and call Dominica their permanent home. Having purchased 3 acres of what was previously a banana farm in one of the most idyllic parts of the island, they set about building their home in the most ecologically friendly way possible. First they built a 1 bedroom cottage in which they have lived whilst building their main home. Both are powered by solar panels and their drinking water is piped from a natural spring on the property. Now that the main house is occupied and nearing completion, the cottage described here is available for short term rental. What makes this venue so special is the tranquil location, crystal clear river in which to bathe and the beautifully spacious and well tended garden, decorated with flowering shrubs, an array of colourful flowers, organically grown fruit and veg. The Lounge/Dining/Kitchen area is open plan and due to the privacy of the location opens onto the rear garden below. The bedroom area, however, may be made secure. Downstream is the farmer from whom they purchased, immediate neighbours upstream are an American couple who recently completed their home and beyond that is nothing but unspoilt primordial rainforest rising up to the Morne Trois Pitons National Park, which can be reached by various hiking trails. WiFi internet is available along with 110V outlets for those with North American appliances. Although the kitchen is fully equipped and has a barbecue, it may be possible to share some meals prepared by your hosts, for which there will be a charge.

Vehicle hire recommended at this location - Charles Douglas (formerly Melville Hall) Airport 1 hour, Roseau 50 minutes, Rosalie Bay 10 minutes.  We can pre-arrange for a rental vehicle to be awaiting you at the airport or the Roseau Ferry Terminal on your arrival in Dominica.

Natural attractions easily reachable by road - Carib Territory, Emerald Pool, Morne Trois Pitons hiking trail from Pont Casse, Rosalie Bay where turtles nest, SariSari Falls hike from Laplaine, Victoria Falls hike from Delices.
