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!
