There are three bedrooms which rent seperately in this spacious apartment . Guests share the living room and well equipped kitchen with fellow travellers. There is an outside balcony for breakfast overlooking a garden full of fruit trees and friendly dogs. The bedrooms include one king size with ensuite bathroom and a double and twin room that share a bathroom. The secure apartment is located in the same building as the office of the British Honorary consul and an NGO and the owners live downstairs so there is opportunity to ask for local advice or support with organising tours, hiking or diving or for company to the hot springs, river or beach. The apartment is walking distance from a local mini supermarket and even to the heart of Roseau. However most people take a bus back up the hill. We are located just 10 minutes walk from the Stadium venue for the Creole Festival and the Cricket.
We will gladly meet you from the ferry or arrange a taxi from the airport. We can organise car rental and tour guides for the Boiling Lake and other hikes and can also arrange fishing, snorkeling and boat trips to look for whales and dolphin.
Two site holidays between our Birdwatchers Rainforest Cottage in the Mountains and starting and/or finishing in Roseau work well.
We are five minutes walk from the Princess Margaret Hospital and ten minutes walk downhill to Roseau , the Stadium and the River. Located in the quiet leafy suburb of Goodwill, with residential homes, a primary school , several churches, a basketball court and football field , a small supermarket and ATM machine close by. There is a very popular barbecue on Friday nights and a bus service at the end of the road.
We have a Dial A ride Bus based at our organisation Lifeline, providing services for disabled and unaccompanied children and also have involvement with a host of civil society activities. We can drop you to local places of interest or bus stops if you decide not to rent a car. this is cheaper but you do need to think about how you will get home if you decide to go further afield as the buses serve commuters and school children and so may not return to Roseau. No where is that far. We can always arrange to hire a friend to come for you.
Walking alone at night is not recommended although it is probably safer than most other places in the world. Generally the locals are warm and friendly and will be happy to direct you or even accompany you if you are lost. We are very well known to bus drivers and others so finding your way home is not an issue!
We strongly recommend swimming in natural hot mineral pools at Screws Spa one evening , also Snorkelling at Champagne, visiting Romantic Cafe at Mero Black sand Beach, Visiting the unusual eating places at the South of Roseau: Zam Zams, Westport Tavern, Tao, Old Stone, the Loft., or the Waterfront Restaurant at Fort Young Hotel.
During the day try Desiderata a cafe hidden in the depths of a boutique at the Old Market where interesting local souvenirs are all muddled up with Chinese and Haitian imports. If you go to Scots head to see where the Atlantic and Caribbean meet eat lunch at Rogers and tell him Tina sent you.
If you are more energetic climb the Volcano at Soufriere or walk part of the Waitikubuli Trail. Check a local guide first to make sure that there are no landlsides or broken bridges so that you wont have to turn back!
For those who prefer to sit more than hike we can set up tours to the Kalinago Territory to see the Indian basket makers and model village. Eat at Rudie's Islet View or with Sister Joan at Sea Breeze Inn where you can explore the beach and river estuary
We can also arrange a Sea Trip to look for dolphins, whales, flying fish, turtles and pelicans or to do some local fishing. You can get off the boat and snorkel too if you have strong arms to get back in! Other watery activities include swimming up a ravine to a waterfall at Titou Gorge ( scene of the Cannibal chase form Pirates of the Carfibbean) or Tubing down Layou River
Very adventurous folk can also accompany Captain Harry on a local fishing expedition starting at the crack of dawn and going after the big one ( biggest thus far a 300lb Marlin) This costs USD100 a head and is "at your own risk". These same adventurers might try canyoning or walking 6 hours to Boiling Lake and back.
DO come we are waiting for you
