Villa PassiFlora is a spectacular 3-bedroom home on Dominica's stunning northeast coast, with expansive views and easy access to one of the island's most beautiful beaches.

The architects and designers have created a luxurious Caribbean environment which maximizes the benefits of the cooling breezes through extensive shaded veranda space onto which all rooms open widely, providing glorious sea and mountain views. Cool in our private pool while taking in magnificent vistas of the sea and coast. You may choose the option of having some prepared meals using a bounty of locally procured seafood, poultry, vegetables and fruit.

The cottage is on the Villa PassiFlora property, surrounded by forest, fruit trees and tropical plants, with a view through the forest to the Atlantic Ocean. Privacy has been maintained between the villa and the cottage, which have completely separate entrances.

Exceedingly spacious, the cottage is self-catered, and it has a complete kitchen. The bedroom is designed for a couple or individual, and a third person can use a daybed in the living room. There are front and rear verandahs, and guests are welcome to any fruits growing on the grounds of the cottage. There is even a washing machine in the cottage.

A New Standard of Style and Elegance: Villa PassiFlora is for the traveler who would like to enjoy Dominica in a vacation home of style and elegance still rare on the island. It is an ideal setting for several couples wishing to share a relaxing vacation together, for small groups interested in literary, yoga or culinary retreats or for families without young children. When compared with similar accomodations elsewhere in the Caribbean (there are no comparable accomodations on Dominica), the villa is eminently affordable for the couple or individual who appreciates space, beauty and privacy. 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.

True Value in a Splendid, Caribbean Villa: There are a variety of options for prepared meals using a bounty of locally procured seafood, poultry, vegetables and fruit. Throughout the villa, a mix of antiques and art pieces contribute to a unique and beautiful living space. For those lucky enough to experience it, Villa PassiFlora is destined to become a never-to-be-forgotten vacation home. If you are looking for a simple roof over your head, look elsewhere. If you believe true value lies in a reasonable fare for style, privacy, quality and luxury, you have found your Dominican lodging. If you want accommodations every bit as spectacular and memorable as Dominica itself, Villa PassiFlora is for you!

About Bruce Kaplan

Between us, we juggle lives in neurology, choreography, dance education, Pilates instruction, theater administration... and we have created what we believe is the most beautiful guest house in Dominica.

Bruce Kaplan purchased this villa in 2003

Why Bruce Kaplan chose Calibishie

We spent a decade looking for seaside land and homes in Florida, California, the Yucatan, Tobago and the British Virgin Islands. Then we found Dominica. Dominica combines extraordinary-- almost overwhelming-- natural beauty with a sense of adventure and discovery. We are passionate about Dominica!

Beautiful Island , Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

First the villa- how often do you get a chance to stay at the most beautiful villa on an island?

PassiFlora offers exactly that. This villa has a wonderful layout and design which allows you to enjoy outdoor living at its best. We stayed in the master bedroom which had a very comfortable king size mattress and a million dollar view . The kitchen is well stocked with essentials for cooking or mixing your favorite island beverage. The pool and pool view speaks for itself.

The staff- ALL the staff at the villa are great! Isaline (the housekeeper) always has a wonderful smile and and full of energy.

The island -the people of Dominica are very friendly and helpful. The island has gained back much of its greenery and colorful tropical plants after Maria. There is 2 very well stocked and reasonably priced grocery stores in the village close by (3 min by car 15-20 min by foot).

The negative- We had to leave

Villa Owners- Thanks to Bruce and Ann for making our Dominica Dream come true. Thank you both!

An Amazing Property with a View Worth Waking Up To

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing time during our stay in Calibishie. The staff at the house was ver accommodating and very pleasant. The home itself is outstanding and the effect get-away. I will note that the island is still under a period of recovery from the the hurricanes. It takes some patience, resourcefulness and understanding of the local amenities but it should not hinder a great time. The people of the island are very welcoming and hospital - they are glad to have visitors and it shows.

We will definitely be returning to Dominica and Passi Flora.

A wonderful place, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Villa Passiflora is the most beautiful place we have ever stayed in. well thought out, wonderfully furnished and wanting for nothing we would love to return. The house in in a stunning location on the beautiful north coat of Dominica. The owners have thought of everything you might need and are helpful and on hand for any information you need before your trip. The on site staff are efficient and friendly, helping with anything whilst you are there.

It really is a special place. Thank you both so much

Dream-Come-True Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our week and were sorry to leave. First of all, the architecture and the wood are stunning. The interior decoration is very pleasing, with lots of details we kept noticing.

Everything was very comfortable: beds, towels, sheets, lounge chairs. Bathrooms were great. The kitchen was so well-stocked.

And now the best part: the view! Whenever I came out on 1 of the verandas, the view of the ocean, waves crashing on rocks, lights blinking on Guadaloupe, distant mountains...it took my breath away! We were all pinching ourselves, feeling as if we were dreaming of paradise. And the roar of the waves and the chirping tree frogs would lull us to sleep at night.

The housekeeper and caretakers were all very welcoming and eager to help us in any way. They are unusually sweet people. We enjoyed 1 of Isalene’s scrumptious dinners.

During our stay we did a variety of activities, from hiking to swimming and loved the unspoiled island and the friendly people.

We hope to come back some time.

Great time

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home

The house is very intelligently designed with amazing views yet very limited direct sun . Very complete kitchen. The housekeeper Iso is a joy and makes the stay very easy and fun

There are 2 guard dogs to announce any visitors and give some security.

Car: not necessary

Villa PassiFlora is open for guests January 1, 2018! And we’re offering up to 50% off our standard rates. Inquire, and we'll send details of our status post-Maria.

Villa PassiFlora is located in one of the most glorious areas of Dominica. One of the island's loveliest beaches, Pointe Baptiste, is just down our footpath. The other best beaches on Dominica are all just a short drive away. The village of Calibishie, while remaining quaint and very genuinely Caribbean, is somewhat more geared to tourism than most Dominican villages. There is good food at a number of restaurants in a variety of styles and price ranges. This north end of the island is known mainly for beaches, breezes and profound chilling! The heavy duty hikes, such as the Boiling Lake, are mainly at the south end of the island, but the Morne Diablotin hike will challenge anyone, and less arduous hikes can lead to beautiful Chaudiere Pool or involve various segments of the Waitukubuli Trail. Truly, some of the most glorious walks are around the bays immediately accessible from Villa PassiFlora. Scuba out of Portsmouth is just a half hour away; snorkeling is down our paths.
