Property description

True Dominica, off grid, no concrete, noise, wires or worries. We are located adjacent to Barb Wire Bungalows (where we can book additional guests) but are up hill from them so privacy is assured and you can tour their amazing garden and riverfront estate. Additional rooms available for larger parties and guests.

We offer two units: the top floor Peanut Farm Bungalow and the bottom Captain's Cabin--rent one separate or together for larger groups or for more privacy. Just because our calendar shows we are booked, please inquire as that may be just for the top or bottom unit, not both, and your request may be available! Please indicate which unit you are looking to book.

All modern appliances, hot water, totally off grid set up, made of 14 different local hardwoods and built by the owner and local craftsman, you will be impressed by the warmth and charm found only at the Peanut Farm. We even made all the counters, tops, doors, floors, most furniture, etc.
And the decks are huge, with awesome sunset, Caribbean and Guadeloupe views, surrounded by Sisserou and Jaco Parrots, hawks and hummingbirds...you will never want to leave!

Car: Recommended

Unbelievable views and birdwatching from our huge deck--parrots, hawks and hummingbirds--overlooking RUSM and Portsmouth, with panoramic views of Prince Rupert Bay, Cabrits, Portsmouth, and Guadeloupe beyond! Up the hill about a mile from campus, you are in the bush, yet nearby vibrant Picard with its student life and calm long beaches.

Our all wood and stone 'tree house' is unique in the area, with two units; a large all wood with enormous view deck above, and a cozy cabin below, with its own deck and outside shower and view!

We are 20 minutes from the Dublanc River hike up to www.syndicatefalls.com and 30 to Red Rock Dunes in Calibishie. 10 minutes to lovely Toucari Bay and 5 to Cabrits National Park.

Designed and built by a charter boat captain, we are totally off grid and about as eco friendly as you can get, yet boast all modern appliances like freezer/frig with ice maker, microwave, coffee maker, blender, toaster oven, and a complete bar and kitchen set up (formerly a bar/restaurant called Peanut Farm Bar & Grill, see our Facebook page Peanut Farm Bungalow for more pics)

We can accommodate additional guests next door at our partner's guest house, Barb Wire Bar & Bungalows, see www.barbwirebar.com

Peace.
