The SpaceSurrounded by evergreen mountains, sturdy trees that dance with the gentle sensations from the wind. Simple perfection in a nirvana-quiet, self-fulfilling and peaceful atmosphere that allows you the visitor to totally connect with nature, and yourself, in a forest setting.
The site is located in the woods close to our family owned organic vegetable farm (D-Smart Farm). In the woods, you can see Agoutis in the early mornings, river crabs and numerous species of birds during the day, and millions of fireflies at night, with a constant backdrop of birdsong and chirping insects. On the farm, we grow a wide range of and vegetables, and we keep a few rabbits, chickens, goats and ducks. Jacko Parrots and hummingbirds are frequent visitors. You can go for a swim in the river and then use the sap from our Gommier tree, a traditional source of fuel in Dominica, to light your camp fire. Some of Dominica’s most beautiful hiking starts right on the edge of the farm.
Essentially, if you love nature, you will love this space.
Note that we are high up in the mountain rain forest, so there are no mosquitoes carrying Zika in the area. There are no dangerous plants or animals in the tropical forest so you are free to relax and explore outdoors, day and night.
Our guests stay in dry and cozy A-Frame structures with mattresses and blankets and share an outdoor kitchen space. There are three separate structures, each of which can house two adults plus small children. Visitors who bring their own tents are welcome to camp on the farm.
