Pots and pans and dishes are in both the upstairs kitchen and the downstairs kitchen, so you don't have to carry things up and down the stairs. Terrace accessed by outside stairs. There is off street parking in a garage at the house. Please look at our (website hidden) page "The Beach House" (website hidden)_homepage_panel Interaction with GuestsWe wanted the Beach House to be an affordable and fun place for people to visit and experience life in a Dominican village. Since most people come to Dominica for the outdoor activities, we planned an open air living area on the second floor, accessed from outside stairs. The breeze and the views are amazing. We will meet you at the house to give you the keys and a tour, as well as to introduce you to the neighbors. If I am not on island, I have a wonderful neighbor at my house in Salisbury, Scott, who will meet and greet the guests. He does this because, "that is what neighbors do, help each other". That sums up Dominican people. If you want some local food, just ask Mary next door in the grocery store. She will save you some food in the afternoon, so you can have it when you return home at night, just ask her. Nash Reynolds, the furniture maker across the road, also makes beautiful local wood cutting boards. A beautiful reminder of your trip to Dominica. The NeighborhoodSafe, colorful neighborhood. Right on the beach in the center of the village. You will experience how the village lives and become part of the community. Off street parking. Fishing village so fresh fish may be available daily. Mary's grocery next door has most things you need, plus she will cook for you if you ask. Nash Reynolds, the furniture maker across the street, also make beautiful cutting board out of the local wood. Getting AroundWe recommend a rental car, but the local bus service runs through town, listen for honking horn from bus drivers. You can also walk 5 minutes to the main road and quickly wave down a bus. We do not provide airport or ferry pick up, but can recommend someone to pick you up. You can hire a taxi outside the airport or the ferry terminal. Other Things to NoteThere is a fresh water river, the Layou, available for bathing as well as Caribbean just a short walk from the house. Solar hot water on house and wireless internet. Local cell phone provided for guests. Just top it up at Mary's before you leave.
