Why chose Calibishie

Dominica is a very special island, full of kind friendly locals, littered with small quaint caribbean fishing villages and gorgeous topography not found on many islands. The property is located on one of the best and most beautiful beaches Dominica has to offer.

What makes this villa unique

The true beauty for me is the ever changing ocean and beach. On days it can be calm on others its a surfers play ground. The coral reef protects the beach and provides a beautiful home for the sea life. Constant breeze keeps you cool and fresh and the coconut and almond trees provide just enough shade.

Beautiful and private 2 bedroom with a pool above a boutique mini resort..

  • 5 of 5

In northeast coast of Dominica (town of Calibishie) with light colored sand beach and views of red rocks and cliffs. This was the perfect escape for our family of four. We wanted to travel to the island for its unspoiled lush rain forests and beaches and we could not have found a better place to do our 7 day February break. The house had a good layout with the kitchen and living area to separate the identical master bedrooms. The veranda which is accessed from all the rooms led to the infinity pool with amazing views of the surrounding forest, sea and cliffs. The beach was a mere 90-100 steps away down a paved path from the house where you will also find the resort's outdoor restaurant and bar with a sandy floor. There was relaxing tasteful wooden lounge chairs and the palm/coconut trees provide ample shade. Great small area for swimming and snorkeling as there are corals just a few strokes away. The food and drinks they served were fresh and delicious. Plenty of birdwatching opportunities. Nearby is a small chocolate factory worth stopping by. Our hosts Jenny and Mauro were very warm and hospitable and the staff, Junior, and waitresses were delightful.

To note some challenges, we only had one fan and there was no AC so we gave them to our children to use in their bedroom- it did get quite warm a few nights and an extra fan would have helped. Fresh produce and meats were hard to come by at local grocery stores which makes self-catering limited and leaves us to eat out often (food and drinks are not cheap in the resort restaurant and in the island). On our last day, perhaps due to a rainstorm, our electricity cut out a few times for a total of 6+ hours.

Just a few snags that did not by any means ruin any part of our wonderful unique and special experience.

Lovely, unique, quiet resort

  • 4 of 5

With only two cabanas and one guest house thus far, Escape Dominica is a unique, quiet, restful resort. The owners are attentive and gracious and anxious to please their guests. The cabanas are spacious, clean, and nicely renovated (some amenities that would have made them even more comfortable: a luggage rack, shampoo/conditioner, a bit more sink space). The tiki bar serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner and all meals are excellent. The fish cakes were our favorite each day for lunch and the mahi mahi for dinner was superb. The rum punch was the best we have ever had. Our only suggestion re food/beverage would be the coffee which tasted like instant and just didn't satisfy each morning. The location and view of the ocean is probably the best on the island...very private and amazing red rock bordering the beach...very comfortable lounge chairs for guests. This is a new resort and the owners are clearly working hard to make it even more lovely than it already is. One final suggestion...better signage on the road as our taxi driver could not find the resort and relied on the locals to point us in the right direction several times. We do highly recommend Escape Dominica...especially as a last stop on the island as it puts visitors in close proximity to the airport for departure.

Stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property over Christmas and New Year's. We are a family of four. I have traveled fairly extensively in the Caribbean and Dominica is truly the most beautiful, unspoiled island I have ever visited. The house was comfortable and the view truly stunning. We had the gorgeous beach almost entirely to ourselves. Jen cooked some delicious meals for us and she was incredibly warm and friendly, as were all of the people we met in Dominica. We felt completely safe with Pierre patrolling the property every night. If you are looking for a vacation that is truly off the beaten path and offers the rewards of stunning, unspoiled natural beauty, as well as a chance to experience the local culture than this is the place for you. To address some of the other reviews, we had no problems at all with the bats (a very occasional one swooped by to the delight of our kids) and the pool and appliances worked perfectly. We did have a shower-head break but it was fixed immediately. If you want to be segregated from the local culture in a walled off, touristy resort than look elsewhere. Our family cannot wait to return to Dominica and stay in this wonderful villa again someday.

We had the most amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at red rock haven. Our family includes 3 kids 6 and under. We had terrific adventures hiking to waterfalls, visiting a Rastafarian farm in the mountains, paddling up Indian River and hitting the beaches. The house is simple and very nice. Jen babysat (and was beloved) by our 8-month-old daughter allowing us to take the kids on hikes that otherwise would have been impossible. Elaine arranged wonderful tour guides for us.

In response to the last posting, the owners are very responsive to any issues with the property. The fridge has been replaced. There are devices in the bedrooms to keep bats away (there still are a few bats around the property, but I didn't see any in the bedrooms so they seem to work, you could sleep under mosquito nets but we didn't except for our baby). There is a security guard who visits the property in the evening and morning. Bottom line is that this is an open-air house in a natural setting in Dominica, not an a/c resort in the Bahamas. You need to be careful and prudent, there are risks, but it is a trip unlike any other.

Neglected and not safe

  • 1 of 5

My husband and I rented Red Rock for 18 days. Upon our arrival the fridge, pool, one shower, one toilet and the fans above the beds did not work. We had @50 bats flying out of the house, that lived in the rocks that made up the interior walls, @ 5:30 every night and then fly back into the walls @ 5:30 every morning. The pool jets, lights and filter were not in working order our whole stay. We had to run the hose about 5 hrs a day to insure there would be water to take a dip. They fixed the second toilet 5 days after our arrival which was handy since we had four guests join us for a week. And fixed the fridge 3 days after our arrival. Then the fridge broke again one week before we were to check out spoiling a lot of food and no ice for drinks or cold beer. But the big disappointment was when we were robbed of all our cash from our wallets, three safes and one worked part of the time, while we were sleeping. They also took the big screen TV. Not sure what els was taken because we got out of there as fast as we could. Our driver, house manager and another local business owner that came straight away after we woke up and realized what happened all said we were very luck to have not woken up while being robbed that night.Scary. We locked the place up tight and left the lights on at night. For the price we payed there should have been security or gates that were in working order.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry our guests had a bad experience at our property. We did have a problem with the swimming pool and we ensured it was remedied asap. We were in constant communication with our guests and worked with them to get the problem resolved. The toilet was replaced. We did not know there were 6 guests as the booking only stated 2, however it was not a problem for us. We also did not know there was a problem with one of the showers until the guests informed us upon their return to the States. The shower was repaired immediately (it was a simple water pressure issue). With regards to the fridge, it broke down the day of the guests arrival. We managed to get a repair man in the very next day and he repaired it. Unfortunately a few days before the guests checked out it broke down again, we offered to reimburse them for any food that was spoiled and we ordered a brand new fridge immediately. We have done some research into the issue with bats and have found and ordered a device that emits an electronic sound that discourages the bats from the property without causing them harm. We have never had any issues with safety at our property before, however, we understand that no one Country is crime free so we have employed a Security Guard who patrols the property during the night and early mornings. As I mentioned we are deeply sorry the guests experienced problems, we had our cook prepare a meal for them on our behalf, paid for a meal at very nice restaurant and compensated them financially. We try very hard to ensure our property is comfortable and should any problems occur we do everything we can to get things resolved.

Excellent getaway !

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the opportunity to stay in such a great villa. The views are amazing and the beach as well as the pool and overall property were terrific. Elaine (housekeeper) was very helpful and wonderful. Jen Jen, the cook, was great. She prepared several delicious dinners for us. Both are sweet ladies and a real positive addition to our experience. We spent two days with Nigel guiding us to various locations on the island. He was also a great find and we highly recommend him. We liked the Rainbow restaurant best of the nearby ones we sampled We could have stayed longer !! ... but the 2 weeks were delightful.
