Roseau, Saint George Parish, Dominica
There are three bedrooms which rent seperately in this spacious apartment . Guests share the living room and well equipped kitchen with fellow travellers. There is an outside balcony for breakfast overlooking a garden full of fruit trees and friendly dogs. The bedrooms include one king size with ensuite bathroom and a double and twin room that share a bathroom. The secure apartment is located in the same building as the office of the British Honorary consul and an NGO and the owners live downstairs so there is opportunity to ask for local advice or support with organising tours, hiking or diving or for company to the hot springs, river or beach. The apartment is walking distance from a local mini supermarket and even to the heart of Roseau. However most people take a bus back up the hill. We are located just 10 minutes walk from the Stad...

This rental is in a great location in Roseau, with a view of the ocean on one side and a lovely, tree-filled garden and hills on another side, which one can enjoy from a private balcony. The apartment is well appointed and comfortable. Tina is a great resource and very ready to help with advice, Although we didn't need her...

Management response:

It is true that unless you rent the whole apartment, the sitting area and kitchen are shared spaces with other guests and that on week days, the office opens at 8am. We also live downstairs and so it is more of a welcoming community than a private romantic getaway. Some of our guests take up our offer of a couple...

We stayed for two weeks in Home from Home, a very comfortable, roomy and well-appointed apartment in Goodwill, on the edge of the small city of Roseau. The apartment is above the owners apartment, up in the breeze and tree tops of the Goodwill hillside. While we technically rented only the master suite to ourselves, no one else was there...

Management response:

We really enjoyed hosting Shane and Julia for their anniversary. 50 Massacre Primary School children loved their art class and we were pleased to be able to offer a couple of nights in the forest. Sorry about the dogs, Goodwill's version of car alarms and traffic noise. The rooster can be annoying too, he seems to have broken his clock...
