The SpaceWell equipped, wooden cabin in the treetops of the Rainforest. On the edge of the World Heritage Site Morn Trois Pitons in the Volcanic island of Dominica .With parrots and hummingbirds as visitors and a rainwater plunge pool 20 feet above ground, this accommodation is ideally placed on the Waitikubuli Hiking Trail. There is WiFi to stay in touch and groceries can be delivered or bought from the corner shop and the vegetable stall by the road. Two hundred yards from the main road in a developing area, yet with a remote and isolated feel.looking out from the balcony. A rental 4X4 Jeep can take you to many usual attractions within an hours drive , hot springs, rushing rivers and waterfalls, Organic Farm tours, Birdwatching for the Parrots only found in Dominica, Diving and snorkelling, whale watching and local fishing can be arranged. Visit the Kalinago Indian Basket weavers and see their traditional dances less than an hours drive away. We are about 45 minutes drive from the airport and half an hour form the ferry. We can arrange pick ups and car rentals, cell phone rental and lots of introductions! Do expect rain and even a chilly dawn until the sun gets up! We have hot water from a solar system which you can put into the pool to take the edge off! See you soon the hammock is (URL HIDDEN) not worry about negative reviews about the temperamental (URL HIDDEN) has been pensioned off and replaced. New one functions without having to be coaxed. Guest AccessGuests access the pool which opens straight off the deck. Access to the surrounding forest (with insect repellent) and the feeder path to the Hiking trail ( rather muddy at times) the shop and a couple of bars are walking distance away . The neighbours are friendly and supportive if needed Interaction with GuestsWe usually meet and greet and lead or transport you to the house, make sure you have all you need and remain on call by phone or email. We have a home near to the Ferry so sometimes people stay with us the night before they leave. The NeighborhoodThis is virgin rainforest 400 yards from the main road. The best of both worlds. The PIneapple Crossing nieghbours can be seen through the trees and there is a new block house behind us but they are less intrusive then we dreaded. The car park is shared with Pineapple crossing down the steps. The two houses also share the internet connection. We are also developing our botanical trail, orchid walk and parking area. If you want to help you will have to borrow wellies and wear jeans as the rainforest fights back with insect life and muddy paths, Getting Aroundbuses do run at the end of the lane to Roseau but there is no timetable and hitch hiking is also an option if you are not alone. Best option is to rent a 4X4 . Other Things to NoteWe recommend NOT renting a vehicle at the airport if arriving at night. Have a taxi ( which we can arrange) Too many tourists get lost or breakdown in the dark. The roads are unlit and there are frequent roadworks. We are coping with the new neighbours. We wish we owned the whole forest.....however it is exciting to be planting trees and flowers to attract yet more birds and butterflies.

The SpaceBecause of its central location on the island The Ramelton Estate makes a great "central command" for the island's many activities. Guest AccessYou would have complete privacy in the home with your very own hiking trail leading to a small, natural waterfall and pool where you could play or bathe. Interaction with GuestsI am available by phone or email. At the entry of the property there is the groundskeeper's home. He is available during weekdays. Getting AroundYou can rent a car at the airport (recommended) or have transportation arranged. The Ramelton Estate is about 45 minutes from the airport. Dominica is an extremely safe country and it's roads are easily navigated. Having your own mode of transportation makes exploring the island easy and endless. Note: This country drives on the left hand side of the road. Other Things to NoteDominica is a hidden gym. They call it "The Nature Island" because of how lush and undeveloped it has remained.
