For a group it is a bargain. It is for you if you relish the prospect of enjoying the sound of the waves, the feel of the cooling trade winds and the view from one of the most breathtaking spots in the Caribbean. It is a tonic for the senses.

We had the most amazing week in Dominica at Villa Passiflora. The house itself was so much nicer than we had imagined, it is all we had dreamed of in a Carribean destination. Stylish, natural and very comfortable without being ostentatious. You immediately feel at one with your surroundings which are stunning! If you can prise yourself away from the pool and terrace, a short walk takes you to an amazing stretch of coast with interesting rock formations and a lovely beach. The village of Calibishie is charming, authentic and a great place to enjoy the local food. The surrounding vegetation was so lush and beautiful we felt like we were holidaying in a tropical paradise, with amazing walks to waterfalls and stunning beaches, eating coconuts off the beach, and fresh bananas and mangoes from the roadside stalls. Everybody was so friendly, especially the housekeeper who made us feel like family. We were thoroughly charmed by the place and hope to return as soon as we can. Many thanks to all.

Staying at Villa Passiflora will transport you to a time when life was simple, and timeless, and the small wonders of nature are all around you. I used to fall asleep to the sound of the surf, and wake up to watch hummingbirds from the bathroom window as the sun rose over the bay. The villa is a complete ecosystem, and is graced by Isolene who is a wonderful cook, and Brad & Lisa who are the current caretakers, very friendly and helpful. You could stay a week at the villa, & not bother with a car, and spend time in Calibishie, with an occasional jaunt to Portsmouth. The beach was absolutely spotless & empty (August is the off season), and the Pointe was a great place to explore, and sit watching the sun set. But, since this was our first trip to Dominica, we chose to hire a car and a driver (essential for newbies!) and roam around the island. and what a beautiful, unspoilt island it is! Needless to say, time flew by, and our week went by all too fast. I most definitely recommend this as a getaway retreat!

A great vacation
A great vacation
Villa Passiflora has everything you need for a perfect Caribbean experience...open air living, books and a hammock, hillside views with cooling breezes yet close proximity to a beautiful (and often deserted) swimming beach, a roof deck for sunsets and star gazing, a great Caribbean music collection, nearby shopping and restaurants, a convenient location for exploring the island, and a wonderfully helpful and accommodating staff. I only regret that we didn't have a longer stay and that we missed mango season!

My husband and I went to Pasiflora in December to change the pace at Christmas time. And what a change! Wow. The beauty of the place is spectacular. If there ever was a house designed to take full advantage of being outdoors this is it. The pictures are accurate. Everything is in fresh air and open to the magnificent views of the ocean below and the mountains beyond. At night you can see the lights of distant islands and the stars, that's all. I don't think my husband left the hammock, reading and sleeping. I liked exploring the wading pools and sitting in the surf. The food was wonderful, fresh and local. I'd say it's a great place to get away from the rush of ordinary life any time of the year. Getting there was a hassle, I must admit, but we planned our trip to stay one night in Puerto Rico and enjoyed the Caribbean night life and shopping.

Le 25 février 2011 Villa Passiflora est sûrement la maison antillaise la plus extraordinaire que nous n'avons jamais louée. Nous y avons séjourné du 10 au 24 janvier et ce fût un pur bonheur. D'abord, la villa occupe un site exceptionnel avec vue superbe sur l'Atlantique et sans aucun voisin. Ensuite, la Villa elle-même est extrêmement bien conçue pour les tropiques. Elle est très aérée et très ouverte sur l'extérieur. On y sent toujours une petite brise rafraîchissante. C'est une grande Villa très très bien entretenue et d'un grand raffinement. On perçoit à tout instant l'amour des propriétaires (Bruce et Ann que nous avons eu la chance de rencontrer) pour leur "nid" Dominiquais. Tout est pensé et choisi avec un goût artistique incomparable. L'ameublement et la décoration, un heureux mariage d'antiquités antillaises et d'éléments plus modernes, donnent un très agréable atmosphère de détente et de farniente. La cuisine, d'une grande beauté, est digne des grands chefs ! Elle est grande, fonctionnelle et très bien équipée. On y a vraiment le goût de cuisiner... en prenant l'apéro... (le poisson qu'on est allé acheter aux pêcheurs de Calibishie). Et je n'ai pas encore parler de la mer et de la petite plage quasi privée qui est charmante avec les montagnes avoisinantes qui lui donnent un très beau relief. Elle est accessible à pieds en 5 minutes par un petit sentier qui y descend doucement. Pour ce qui est de l'accueil, il est très chaleureux. Florence et Stéphane (un couple franco-québécois qui sont "caretakers") nous reçoivent en Français. Ils sont toujours disponibles pour tout ce qu'on peut imaginer leurs demander. Ils sont extrêmement sympathiques et toujours prêts à nous aider ou à nous conseiller. Il y a aussi la très souriante Isalène, la "housekeeper" qui garde la Villa impeccable et qui nous prépare les bons jus de fruits frais, les confitures, la soupe et qui peut même nous préparer un repas si on le désire... Il y a aussi toute la région du nord de la Dominique qui est magnifique, il y a l'Escape Bar & Grill, un resto mémorable, sur la plage, tout près et il y a encore un million de choses à découvrir...

Just 20 minutes from the airport (Melville) immediately relaxes you with the sweet smell of banana leaves from the groves hugging the highway. Loved my 5 day stay in the village of Calibishe, the immaculate and well-maintained Villa has plenty of rooms for a family or friends with 3 magnificent bedrooms with extra beds available for kids. The beautifully designed home with open air veranda to the sea breezes and sounds of waves crashing below. Doze to the sounds of waves crashing and wind blowing through the louvered windows. The lay out of the "green” Villa allows for serenity inside and outside, or for cooking in large spacious kitchen with all green appliances and the furniture and bathroom fixtures are comfortable. The short drive to Portsmouth, the 2nd largest city and Saturday market is worth it to purchase fruits and veggies from vendors selling organic produce grown in their local gardens. The rich volcanic soil and tropical locale creates pineapples the sweetest I've ever tasted, with luscious mangos. You must be adventurous and in shape, as this is NOT a tourist destination and you must have a 4-wheel drive to get to any place or walk, like the locals do. Swim in either the pool, or calm Caribbean or choppier Atlantic (some beaches are unsafe), hike to the Boiling Lake (crater) at the top of the 4,000 elevation Mount Trois Pitons National Park. Locals speak English and original Creole patois and are delightfully laid back and live a very natural life. Walk to the Escape Bar and Grill with open air seating and chairs right on the shore of the Atlantic. Ocean swimming is perfect with crystal clear water and remember to position yourself between the red rocks to be able to swim against the current. Beachside chairs provided and order your delicious meal and libation. Batibou Beach where Pirates of the Caribbean was shot has swaying palm trees and tropical environment was unlike any Atlantic/Caribbean beach I've experienced. I highly recommend this property to all my friends and family.
