The SpaceLa Bou is a truly unique Country Retreat in the wilderness of Dominica. This is no ordinary log cabin or bamboo hut. This unique 0.85 acre retreat was hand-built by a Swiss artist and his wife over a period of two years in a stunning location. The main house is for rent to parties of 2 or more. See our other listing. The guest room in the garden is the Bird House Cottage described here. Guest AccessGuests have access to their cottage and the entire gardens, including the BBQ area with fire place, the shower and the toilet of the main house and of course, they also have access to the surrounding area and all that is has to offer. Interaction with GuestsWe are off island at this time, so we can't interact with our guests. The NeighborhoodThe unique thing about our neighborhood is the nature. All you hear and see is nature. You will fall asleep and wake up to bird song and other natural sounds. Typical sounds here include sounds made by tree frogs, birds and certain insects. We also sometimes hear sounds being made by the local domestic animals in the valley, such as roosters, pigs, goats and cows. Hearing dogs barking is also not uncommon. Getting AroundAs far as getting around is concerned, renting a small 4x4 Jeep is your best option. If you choose not to rent a car, you can still get around quite well if you are not afraid of a little walking. Local buses run to all areas of the island and are inexpensive. The nearest bus stop is about a 15 minute hike down the hill in the fishing village of Soufriere. Hitchhiking is also still a viable option here since the local population is very friendly and always eager to help out visitors. Please make sure you greet all people you meet with a big smile and a loud "Good Morning". They will answer you with a loud "OK" or a thumbs up sign. It is considered "rude" to not greet everyone you pass along the road. Other Things to NoteLa Bou is located between sections 1 and 2 of the National Trail and right behind the famous Soufriere Sulphur Springs. Soothing hot baths can be enjoyed there day and night. The springs are about a 10 minute walk down the road. La Bou gets its water from the rain, so there is no hot water in any of the buildings. Electricity is provided by a battery bank charged by solar panels. 12V and 110V is available throughout. There is no Internet or TV available at La Bou. Guests can get access to the Internet and phone line at our support house 1km away. We are living in the middle of nature here, so do expect to see lots of wildlife, including but not limited to insects, birds, lizards, etc. Also let us know if you are allergic to dogs, or anything of that nature, as your allergies might act up here in the middle of the jungle. Make sure you bring enough of your prescription medication if you need any. It may not be readily available here. Please note: We do keep at least one dog at the retreat at all times. His name is Oro and he was raised there.

The SpaceWe're a 100% solar-powered eco lodge, surrounded by gorgeous rainforest hills. The house was created by Swiss artist, Henri Rohrer as a self-sustaining retreat. There's a rainwater-fed water system, a shower built from local sea stones, and a screened in porch with views of the Soufriere Volcano. All of this is powered with solar. Experience what comfortable sustainable living can be like! Guest AccessOne queen sized bed, and fold out couch comfortably sleeps up to four people. House has its own kitchen, breezeway and bathroom and outside spa shower. Amenities are well designed but simple. For example, we heat water as we need (no hot water on reserve). No internet, but a 10 min walk/ 2 min drive to free wifi down the hill. Interaction with GuestsWe're on the property in a separate eco house. We're available as need be and are more than happy to help you to experience the amazing island of Dominica. We have a great guide book available for planning and can give you tips on what we love about Dominica. We love to share what we have learned about off the grid sustainable living and are happy to get into details of solar power, gravity fed water systems, making less trash...if that interests you. Mainly, we are there to help with any questions and make you feel comfortable and welcome! The NeighborhoodWe're in the country, surrounded by a few other small farms. We're a 15 min walk/ 5 min drive down to the village where there are a few grocery stores and restaurants. You can hike up into the mountains from the back of the yard, and we're an eighth of a mile from the first leg of the Waitunukabuli Hiking Trail, which traverses the entire island. The village of Soufriere is located on one of the most stunning and unique bays in the Caribbean. It is a marine reserve so the snorkeling and diving are awesome! Rated in the top five snorkeling and diving spots in the world! Champagne Bay, named for the "bubbling springs" in the ocean is right down the road and a great place to snorkel with a guide. They also offer food and drinks and are just soooo friendly. A good way to get acquainted with the underwaters of Dominica. I love our location. It is very private and lends itself well to writers, artists, people who seek a quiet place away from it all. Our land dead ends at the end of the Soufriere Valley so there is only our neighbor's vehicles occasionally passing. At the same time, a fifteen minute walk gets you a taxi to the main city of Roseau and from there you can take public taxis to all parts of the island for a very reasonable rate. There are also great tour guides available and rentals are abundant. However you choose to get around, Soufriere is a great location to start and a wonderful retreat to come back to at night. A 10 minute hike through the "bush" or as they say in Dominica "Zion" gets you to the hot springs that originate in the Soufriere Volcano. A great way to start or end your day. Getting AroundA taxi from Soufriere is $1.50. Taxies from Roseau to Soufriere are also $1.50 and can by found by the craft market in town.

    Come and enjoy this truly unique and very private hide-away retreat in the Dominican Jungle. Situated in a large valley, La Bou is the perfect place to re-connect with Mother Nature. Even though this property is located just minutes from the fishing village of Soufriere, it gives you the feeling of being totally alone in the jungle. This gorgeous compound is comprised of three separate buildings that have and been lovingly hand-built on 0.85 acres by a Swiss artist. He, together with his wife, envisioned and built every inch of this unique structure. The entire structure is extremely sound and truly one-of-a-kind. The grounds feature an assortment of fruit trees on a slightly sloping, roughly maintained lawn. There is no better place to come to your senses and get re-acquainted with your inner self than in these surreal and sensual surroundings. Hear your own inner voice loud and clear. Even though this property is "Off the grid", there is some electricity available. The power is provided by the sun, with the use of 6 high-quality solar panels and a large battery bank. Inverters provide 110V for your basic daily charging needs. The drinking water is supplied by the infamous Dominican rain showers as it is collected straight from the roof. There is 240 gallons available at all times. A small back-up generator provides a back-up power source if needed for a party or DJ system. Situated out in the garden, a little away from the main house, is a what we affectionally call "The Bird House" cottage. This small cottage is equipped with a queen size bed, ceiling fan, closet, and reading lights.This little cottage can be rented separately if so desired. The price is set at $50.00 per night. Our Cottage is located on a dirt road leading into the high hills behind the quaint fishing village of Soufriere, Dominica. This is on the far south side of the island. We are the last occupied property on a dirt road leading into the mountains. Next door to us is a few acres of farm land, belonging to a local farmer. It is basically his garden, where he and his wife come to pick the ripe fruit daily. He mostly has cocoa plants and a few coconut trees. It takes about 3 minutes to drive down the hill to the paved road that leads into Soufriere, Dominica. The nearest mini-market is 10 minutes away. The surrounding area is filled with Jungle and fruit trees. One km away, you can soak in the natural hot Sulphur Springs.They are accessible day or night. There is quite a lot of history in this area. Up the hill from us, an American couple is in the process of restoring an old coffee and sugar plantation that was built by French settlers as early as 1720. Fascinating old buildings still exist here. Hikers will be happy to learn that we are located at the junction of Segment 1 and 2 of the Waitukubuli National Trail System. Going for a dip in the ocean is also a favorite pastime. We are only 7 km from Scotts Head, where the snorkeling is amazing! The water there is part of the Marine Reserve. A few miles down the road is Bubble Beach Spa where you can snorkel in warm water filled with bubbles escaping from the ocean floor, get a refreshing drink and even get a massage. The fish life seen is magnificent. Come check it out soon. You will not be disappointed, we guarantee it.

      We manage a large country cottage in the back of Soufriere in Dominica. In our 0.85-acre garden; we have a separate small cottage that can be rented even when the main house is occupied by us or other guests. This smaller cottage is affectionately known as The Birdhouse, since it strongly resembles one. It is perfect to overnight in for an adventurous couple looking to explore the Dominican Wilderness and all that it has to offer. The Birdhouse features a comfortable double bed, side tables, a ceiling fan, reading lights, a disco ball, a wardrobe/closet, a lockable door, an amazing view of the mountains and garden and plenty of fresh mountain air. The sides of the cottage are 50% metal sheeting and 50% mosquito netting, so it is just like being outside. Don't worry, you won't get wet. The cottage was constructed on a large and stable base of local stones, using treated lumber, bamboo, metal sheets and concrete by a Swiss artist, who built it as his guesthouse. Think of it as a super strong tent. The roof is made of galvanized metal, with four clear plastic roofing sheets in between. These large skylights let you enjoy the sun/moon shine as you lay down to sleep. You will be serenaded to sleep by hundreds of crickets and tree frogs who put on a free concert nightly. The local fireflies start their daily show at 7 pm for your enjoyment. Rental of this cottage includes the following: full linens, towels, showers, toilet, access to the garden and the seasonal fresh fruit that grows there, plus the use of the amazing BBQ area, equipped with a burner and fire place. There you can make your basic meals and relax in the hammocks or lounge chairs as you watch the birds play in the garden. You will need to act as if you are camping, since there is no refrigerator, oven or any of these modern kitchen items normally found in a house. We will provide you with a “cooking box� that includes basics, such as pots, pans, dishes, cups, glasses, utensils, etc. If you need any other items or services to make your stay more comfortable, just ask. We are here to help. The La Bou retreat is located at the end of a dirt road that goes slightly up hill, so unless you love walking, a rental jeep is recommended. We recommend a small 4x4, such as a Toyota RAV4 or a Suzuki Escudo. The nearest bus stop is a 15-minute walk away, in the center of town. From there, buses leave at all hours of the day to all corners of the island. They are clean, fast, and inexpensive and therefore offer a good alternative to renting a car. We are located right next to the Soufriere Sulphur Springs, so you can soak in the hot tubs day or night! The nearest grocery store is only a 5-minute drive down the hill, as is the nearest Restaurant and Bar. The beach is only 1km away. Our favorite spot, where you can swim, snorkel, relax in hot water, have a rum punch, get a massage or simply watch the sunset is at Bubble Beach Spa located right in front of the famous church in town. La Bou is the name of this charming and very private retreat in the hills above Soufriere, Dominica. This retreat is comprised of 3 separate buildings set in the jungle on a 0.85 acre plot in a large valley. The main house houses the kitchen, the pantry, the office and the main bedroom. The second building is The Bird House Cottage, which is actually the second bedroom. The third building is a custom built entertainment area that features the large BBQ with kitchen sink and running water, one burner for making side dishes, a fire place with free fire wood provided and a large dining room table that comfortably seats six. These buildings were all designed and built by a Swiss artist and his wife, who spend years dreaming up the lay-out and lovingly hand-building everything. The details of the architecture are astounding. The lot is a slightly sloping part of a large valley. The property is located at the end of a dirt road, so there is no through traffic. The neighboring area is filled with local gardens, jungle, hiking trails, sulphur springs, etc. This is a truly unique Nature retreat. Town is only a 10 minute drive down the hill and so is the ocean. The nearest Bar is only a 5 minute walk away. There is no TV or Internet at La Bou. Water is provided by the rain and electricity comes directly from the sun, by use of solar panels. Internet is available at the nearby CarRods Gardens Bar & Restaurant 1 km down the road. They have great Wifi and great food and drinks. Open everyday but Mondays.

          La Bou is a unique and secluded Cottage set on nearly one acre of Dominican Jungle. This unique retreat was envisioned and lovingly built from the ground up by a Swiss artist and his wife. Together, they dug the holes, cut the wood and mixed the cement. It was to be their own private retreat and that fact shows throughout. The design details you will encounter here are simply amazing. Everything is very well designed and solidly constructed, using the finest local and imported materials available on Dominica. The building is now 8 years old, but has been privately owned and extremely well maintained all these years. It has never before been available to let. The entire compound is comprised of three separate buildings. First is the Main House, a one bedroom concrete and wood home that houses the kitchen, the living room, the pantry, the office and the master bedroom. In the extension, you will find the closet, the toilet and the bathroom. On the exterior of this building are two separate showers, one enclosed and one fully open to the elements. Further down in the garden, you will find the newly constructed Entertainment Area, which features a large BBQ pit, a custom fire place, a large dining room table with 6 benches, a sink with running water, a cooker and 12V lights. The second bedroom is actually the third building on the retreat. This building has been nicknamed The Bird House by European visitors, because it strongly resembles one. This building is built in the garden, a little uphill from the main house. It features a comfortable Queen size bed, a toilet, a wardrobe, a ceiling fan, reading lights, and even a disco ball. It has its own private entrance and is lockable from the inside as well as from the outside, thereby guaranteeing privacy for the occupants. This building can be rented as a stand-alone cottage for a lower price. It is very romantic room, so it is perfect for an adventurous young couple. La Bou is set amidst hundreds of acres of local farm land, and looks to be covered in tropical jungle. Every farmer has a large plot of land where they cultivate coconuts, cocoa trees, bananas, dasheen, pineapples, etc. Further down the road is Soufriere, a quaint sleepy fishing village. This is the perfect place to pick up your fresh lobster and fish for the BBQ. Come find yourself at our secret retreat. This area is the furthest south on Dominica. Scottshead Marine Reserve spans as far as the eye can see. Everything that is not ocean is lush green. Green, green and more green. Everything is lush jungle and it takes quite a bit of effort to keep the weeds at bay. Here everyone has a machete and spends a large part of his/her day cutting back the jungle that constantly tries to reclaim all developed properties. This is a real country setting, hence the name: La Bou Country Cottage.

          The SpaceThe design incorporates an old Danish style rounded roof "watch hut" with slit windows for ventilation and an open patio design decorated with homemade glass blocks. With sunlight the recycled bottles become stained glass art. With wind moving the trees it creates movement and rhythm in the glass. Sitting sipping coffee in the morning watching the amazing variety of birds and plant life makes a mundane moment truly magic. The object of my husband's design was to make a minimalistic space. The bedroom and kitchen are small but well designed so that there is plenty of room and easy access. With the screened bottle glass patio in between it has a very spacious breezy feel. The bathroom is quite unique and tres functional with an outside shower that is my new fave! Truly bathing in nature, with marvelous scents and plants literally at your feet but again, refined, comfortable, aesthetic. The grounds are nicely landscaped and full of good things to eat...passion fruit, oranges, grapefruit, avocados, bananas, coconuts...ah the tropics! We are a 15 minute walk to Soufriere Bay with some of the best diving and snorkeling spots on the island. There are also some great hikes all around us as well as the entire island, nature island Dominica.

              2br Cottage
                La Bou is a unique and secluded Cottage set on nearly one acre of Dominican Jungle. This unique retreat was envisioned and lovingly built from the ground up by a Swiss artist and his wife. Together, they dug the holes, cut the wood and mixed the cement. It was to be their own private retreat and that fact shows throughout. The design details you will encounter here are simply amazing. Everything is very well designed and solidly constructed, using the finest local and imported materials available on Dominica. The building is now 8 years old, but has been privately owned and extremely well maintained all these years. It has never before been available to let. The entire compound is comprised of three separate buildings. First is the Main House, a one bedroom concrete and wood home that houses the kitchen, the living room, the pantry, the office and the master bedroom. In the extension, you will find the closet, the toilet and the bathroom. On the exterior of this building are two separate showers, one enclosed and one fully open to the elements. Further down in the garden, you will find the newly constructed Entertainment Area, which features a large BBQ pit, a custom fire place, a large dining room table with 6 benches, a sink with running water, a cooker and 12V lights. The second bedroom is actually the third building on the retreat. This building has been nicknamed The Bird House by European visitors, because it strongly resembles one. This building is built in the garden, a little uphill from the main house. It features a comfortable Queen size bed, a toilet, a wardrobe, a ceiling fan, reading lights, and even a disco ball. It has its own private entrance and is lockable from the inside as well as from the outside, thereby guaranteeing privacy for the occupants. This building can be rented as a stand-alone cottage for a lower price. It is very romantic room, so it is perfect for an adventurous young couple. La Bou is set amidst hundreds of acres of local farm land, and looks to be covered in tropical jungle. Every farmer has a large plot of land where they cultivate coconuts, cocoa trees, bananas, dasheen, pineapples, etc. Further down the road is Soufriere, a quaint sleepy fishing village. This is the perfect place to pick up your fresh lobster and fish for the BBQ. Come find yourself at our secret retreat.

                1br Cottage
                  We manage a large country cottage in the back of Soufriere in Dominica. In our 0.85-acre garden; we have a separate small cottage that can be rented even when the main house is occupied by us or other guests. This smaller cottage is affectionately known as The Birdhouse, since it strongly resembles one. It is perfect to overnight in for an adventurous couple looking to explore the Dominican Wilderness and all that it has to offer. The Birdhouse features a comfortable double bed, side tables, a ceiling fan, reading lights, a disco ball, a wardrobe/closet, a lockable door, an amazing view of the mountains and garden and plenty of fresh mountain air. The sides of the cottage are 50% metal sheeting and 50% mosquito netting, so it is just like being outside. Don't worry, you won't get wet. The cottage was constructed on a large and stable base of local stones, using treated lumber, bamboo, metal sheets and concrete by a Swiss artist, who built it as his guesthouse. Think of it as a super strong tent. The roof is made of galvanized metal, with four clear plastic roofing sheets in between. These large skylights let you enjoy the sun/moon shine as you lay down to sleep. You will be serenaded to sleep by hundreds of crickets and tree frogs who put on a free concert nightly. The local fireflies start their daily show at 7 pm for your enjoyment. Rental of this cottage includes the following: full linens, towels, showers, toilet, access to the garden and the seasonal fresh fruit that grows there, plus the use of the amazing BBQ area, equipped with a burner and fire place. There you can make your basic meals and relax in the hammocks or lounge chairs as you watch the birds play in the garden. You will need to act as if you are camping, since there is no refrigerator, oven or any of these modern kitchen items normally found in a house. We will provide you with a “cooking box” that includes basics, such as pots, pans, dishes, cups, glasses, utensils, etc. If you need any other items or services to make your stay more comfortable, just ask. We are here to help. The La Bou retreat is located at the end of a dirt road that goes slightly up hill, so unless you love walking, a rental jeep is recommended. We recommend a small 4x4, such as a Toyota RAV4 or a Suzuki Escudo. The nearest bus stop is a 15-minute walk away, in the center of town. From there, buses leave at all hours of the day to all corners of the island. They are clean, fast, and inexpensive and therefore offer a good alternative to renting a car. We are located right next to the Soufriere Sulphur Springs, so you can soak in the hot tubs day or night! The nearest grocery store is only a 5-minute drive down the hill, as is the nearest Restaurant and Bar. The beach is only 1km away. Our favorite spot, where you can swim, snorkel, relax in hot water, have a rum punch, get a massage or simply watch the sunset is at Bubble Beach Spa located right in front of the famous church in town.

                    Come and enjoy this truly unique and very private hide-away retreat in the Dominican Jungle. Situated in a large valley, La Bou is the perfect place to re-connect with Mother Nature. Even though this property is located just minutes from the fishing village of Soufriere, it gives you the feeling of being totally alone in the jungle. This gorgeous compound is comprised of three separate buildings that have and been lovingly hand-built on 0.85 acres by a Swiss artist. He, together with his wife, envisioned and built every inch of this unique structure. The entire structure is extremely sound and truly one-of-a-kind. The grounds feature an assortment of fruit trees on a slightly sloping, roughly maintained lawn. There is no better place to come to your senses and get re-acquainted with your inner self than in these surreal and sensual surroundings. Hear your own inner voice loud and clear. Even though this property is "Off the grid", there is some electricity available. The power is provided by the sun, with the use of 6 high-quality solar panels and a large battery bank. Inverters provide 110V for your basic daily charging needs. The drinking water is supplied by the infamous Dominican rain showers as it is collected straight from the roof. There is 240 gallons available at all times. A small back-up generator provides a back-up power source if needed for a party or DJ system. Situated out in the garden, a little away from the main house, is a what we affectionally call "The Bird House" cottage. This small cottage is equipped with a queen size bed, ceiling fan, closet, and reading lights.This little cottage can be rented separately if so desired. The price is set at $50.00 per night.
