About the Property

Large One bedroom with loft-sleeps 6-and cozy one bed below sleeps two w/ deck

(Pour lire en français , s'il vous plaît copiez et collez le texte dans Google Traducteur : il suffit de taper Français traduction dans la barre de recherche . Je vous remercie.)

True Dominica, off grid, no concrete, noise, wires or worries. We survived TS Erika with no damage so you will have all to enjoy!

We offer two units: the top floor Peanut Farm Bungalow and the bottom Captain's Cabin--rent Peanut Farm separate or together for larger groups or for more privacy. Just because our calendar shows we are booked, please inquire. WE HAVE DECIDED THAT FROM NOW ON, THE CAPTAIN'S CABIN IS AVAILABLE ONLY IF YOU BOOK THE PEANUT FARM TOP UNIT AS WELL. BUT TRY US IF YOU WANT THE CAPTAIN'S CABIN, YOU CAN STAY THERE IF NO ONE IS BOOKED AT THE PEANUT FARM FROM TIME TO TIME!

The last 7 photos are of the Captain's Cabin which is $80 per night for two. (Usually you will have the whole place to yourself with either unit, we don't often have bookings for both at the same time.)


All modern appliances, 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. A new deck and roof extension was just completed in June 2016 so the entire 17' x 26' deck is covered!

The building is surrounded by over 15 fruit bearing trees, some you can pick right from the deck: Pink Apple, Avocado, Sweet Sop, Guava. Ask Spesh to cut you off a chunk of Sugar Cane to munch or open a fresh jelly coconut and drink the healthy liquer with a straw!

Up to 2 kids 16 years and under stay free!! $25/person/night for any guests over two adults in the top unit, only two guests allowed in the Captain's Cabin.

And the decks are huge (and now completely covered by new roof!), with awesome sunset, Cabrits, Caribbean and Guadeloupe views, with Picard lit up below you at night. We are often visited by Sisserou and Jaco Parrots, hawks and hummingbirds--and the night sounds will follow you into sleep...you will never want to leave!

We offer plenty of things to do at the Peanut Farm, including darts, Twister, ring toss, Shotski, 4 burner gas grill, 5 dining tables on the deck, a 29" screen with 28 dvds, great WiFi, and hot springs and rivers nearby, plus only a 10 minute walk from Coconut Beach.

The Peanut Farm features 14' tall ceilings, all wood interior and floors, huge 4'x5' windows and all the comforts of home (except A/C, but we have large ceiling, floor and deck fans and a nice breeze comes this way most times!)

We are located adjacent to Barb Wire Bungalows (where we can book additional guests) but are up the hill from them so privacy is assured and you can tour their amazing garden and riverfront estate and hire the owner for tours and hikes. Additional rooms available for larger parties and guests if our two rooms are not enough.

The best of all worlds: remote jungle living but close to a vibrant medical school town with restaurants, hotels, and markets. Ask us about car rentals, boat trips, and hiking tours!

Peace.

Notes:

Please note: There are two units, HomeAway only lets me put rates for one of the units, thus you see our standard rate is $175/night in season ($150/night in summer) but that is for just the top unit The Peanut Farm Bungalow. The Captain's Cabin is another rate schedule, please keep reading:

The Captain's Cabin (sleeps two only) rents for $90US during High Season, $75/night in Summer. Weekly is $540/450, monthly 1800/1500.

The Peanut Farm sleeps 2-6, is the large upstairs bungalow with huge deck, rents for $175/night high season, $150/night in Summer. Weekly $1050/$900, Monthly $3,500/$3000. Additional guests over two: add $25/person/night.

Unbelievable views and bird watching from our huge deck--parrots, hawks and hummingbirds--overlooking RUSM and Picard/Portsmouth, with panoramic views of Prince Rupert Bay, Cabrits, 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 Syndicate Falls 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)

Peace.

About the owner: Local charter boat Captain of S/V Sanctuary, we formally offered day sails up and down the Dominica coast and over to Les Saintes, Guadeloupe and weekly almost anywhere in the Caribbean. Born San Francisco, lived in Delray Beach for 15 years prior to moving aboard Sanctuary in 2010 and building the Peanut Farm in 2013. Peanut Farm is named after my business partner, Darnelle, whose nick name is Pnut...we dont actually grow peanuts on site! Photo is from our Camp DominEco at Syndicate Falls attraction, ask about a tour to the Falls with Super Spesh!

Why the Owner Chose Picard, Dominica:
THE best designed and appointed bungalow in Dominica, with amazing views and the best nature experience in the area, rivers and hikes out your back door, university life a 5 minute walk down the hill. Bird and parrot watchers paradise, see birds unique to Dominica all from our deck, described as 'the best deck we have ever been too,' by several bird watchers! Discounts on car rental, tours, and more available and local food prepared on site by request. (Dinner only)

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
rivers, hikes, parrots, bird watching, modern amenities in an all wood and stone 'tree house' 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!
