Drop Anchor is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with full kitchen, living room and large veranda over looking the Caribbean Sea. Not only does Drop Anchor have its own personal 100 ft dock out to the ocean for your use but located downstairs is a bar and restaurant. The bar and restaurant is open for dinner and closes early to allow your evenings to be peaceful. Each bedroom is equipped with a queen size bed, an AC unit, full closet, television with cable and private access to a balcony with a view of the street. Both showers are connected to a hot water warmer for you to enjoy a warm shower if needed. The kitchen includes a gas stove and oven, full refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, pots, pans and cutlery. The living room has a couch, desk and television with cable. The large veranda looks out over the ocean and has a great view of the mountains and Scott's Head which is the most southern tip of Dominica. There is patio furniture for you to relax in on the veranda. The 100 ft dock is located downstairs and is for your personal use. If you would like for me to arrange you a scuba, whale watching, fishing or snorkeling tour I would be more than happy to and arrange for the boat to pick you right up from the dock!
As scuba divers my family was always looking for a new unique destination to go diving. My dad read an article on Dominica in National Geographic and decided we had to check it out. After our first trip we fell in love with not only the diving but the culture and the people. We quickly decided we had to have a home there. It took several years to find the right piece of land but after we did construction began quickly. The idea of the place was initially small but it grew and grew until the final plan...bar downstairs and home upstairs. For several years my sister grew the bar into one of the most popular on this side of the island until she decided to move back to the US to open a 2nd Drop Anchor location in Port Aransas, Tx. Now it is run buy a nice local couple that have turned it into a great place to enjoy dinner or a cold cocktail. The house upstairs has been fully designed by my parents and a long time dream come true for them. They have enjoyed it all to themselves for many years but now they feel it is time to share this cozy Caribbean home with others. If you have any questions about the home or Dominica please feel free to contact me. I have been visiting Dominica since I was 15 years old and would love to give any advice that I can about the island.
Drop Anchor is the perfect location for whatever type of vacation you are wanting to have. Whether you just want to sit by the ocean and relax all day or if you want to fill your days full of activities and attractions Drop Anchor is the place to stay.
I am very familiar with the island and can help you with any concerns you might have. I can also set up any tours you would like to take while in Dominica. I will organize all the details so you can be worry free while on your vacation. I can even arrange for a rental car to be delivered right to Drop Anchor and picked up when you are finished using it. I am here to help in whatever way I can.
Great location. Can walk to center of Roseau or hail a frequent taxi or bus.
Also, there are small hotels close by with nice restaurants. Private dock is great.
Shanon, the owner was very helpful in connecting us with the right people for
hikes, whale watching, etc. Miss Grace, the property manager came by several
times to check on us to make sure we had everything we need. Apartment is
great size. Perfect for 2 couples. And of course, having a bar downstairs is
quite convenient. We would love to stay here again.
My family, including 2 boys ages 8 and 11, stayed at Drop Anchor in April of this year. We had a wonderful experience. It was the perfect location right in the heart of everything. It was clean, had all the necessary technology needs and fantastic views. The restaurant downstairs wasn't too loud and had excellent meals. We ate there often. It was a bit loud the first Saturday we were there but quiet the rest of the time. I had been there before so I expected the later hours at the restaurant and louder music and my kids were able to sleep through it because the bedrooms have air conditioning (but light sleepers may need to think about going into the mountains not in the heart of the city).
Everything was very clean and Gracie came by to check on us and was a wonderful host. The kitchen was stocked well by our needs and standards. We hired a driver to get us to the grocery store and our activities and they worked out perfectly. No need to rent a car, it is too hard to park. Highly recommend Drop Anchor!!
Drop Anchor has the perfect location just a few minutes south of Roseau. Amazing westward view (sunsets!), beautiful deck, spacious rooms, clean and updated inside, all the amenities you need and want. The restaurant/bar (Westport Tavern) located beneath is a great place to relax as well. Good food, friendly service, and great atmosphere. Plenty of restaurants just minutes away. Scuba shops and whale watching tours are also within walking distance.
We couldn't have been happier with where we stayed. The property manager was very friendly and helpful with setting up excursions for us, and suggesting other activities and sites we should go experience. Hiking, diving, whale watching, canyoning are all a must do! All around and great experience, and can't wait to be back!
We had an unbelievable stay at this condo. The place was very clean, well maintained and had up to date amenities. The veranda overlooked the ocean and was picturesque with the mountains in the background. It was so nice to sit out on, relax, and have meals out there. Right downstairs is a great bar and restaurant and don't worry, it's not open too late so won't keep you up all night. The condo is walking distance to town, many restaurants, and dive shops. Dominica is an amazing island to explore. There is incredible hiking, beautiful waterfalls, 4 wheeling, canyoning, excellent wall diving, great fishing, and so much more. The owners have been coming to the island for years and are extremely helpful and knowledgable on things to do. They are happy to arrange excursions, recommend activities, and tell you about the many hidden must visit places around the island. There is a huge dock right downstairs which is great for relaxing, laying in the sun, jumping off, swimming, and snorkeling. When we went fishing, diving, and boating around the island they picked us up right on the dock which was very convenient. The condo has a very homey feel and we felt very safe. Whether you want to just relax, be adventurous, or soak up the friendly Dominican culture this is the place to stay. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting the island and can't wait to go back soon!
Within 5-10 minute drive of Drop Anchor:
- Roseau: It is the capital and the main city on Dominica. Roseau is full of soveinger shops, local restaurants, grocery stores and pharmacies. It is also home to the local farmers market which I highly recommend waking up early on a Saturday morning to check out if you want at true taste of local life on the island.
- Car Rental: If you would like to rent a car while Dominica I can arrange for a car to be delivered to Drop Anchor and picked up when you are finish using it.
- The best dive and whale watching shop on the island: If you would like to set up a dive package or just a day of diving I can arrange that for you and they will pick you up right from Drop Anchor's dock. I can arrange it where you can have your own private boat or go with a group. I can set up an evening of whale watching as well where they will pick you up right from the dock.
- Champagne Snorkel Park: If you would like to skip the boat ride you can drive to this park, rent snorkel gear and use their dock to walk out right to one of the most well known dive/snorkel spots on the island.
- Island Style Fishing and Whale Watching: If you are interested in a more private whale watching experience with the best whale watching captain in Dominica go with Island Style. Or if you would like to catch some fresh fish for your dinner let me know and I can arrange for Island Style to pick you up right on Drop Anchor's dock.
Within 15-30 minute drive of Drop Anchor:
-Mero Beach: A beautiful black sand beach with a stretch of local bars and restaurants for you to enjoy. You can drive there yourself, have a guide take you or buses run there daily (except on Sundays).
-Trifalgra Falls: Probably the most well known waterfall in Dominica. It is a national park so a nice trail has been made and maintained which makes the 'hike' to see the fall very easy. You can simply hike to the viewing area or if you feel more adventurous you can continue and possibly hike to the pool of the fall depending on the weather. There are also natural sulfur hot springs that you can bath in and are located on the trail and easy to get to.
- Titou Gorge: This is a must see while in Dominica. It is a very short walk and when you get to the Gorge you take a swim through a canyon. Google this one to get the full idea.
Within 45-60 minute drive from Drop Anchor:
-Victoria Falls: This waterfall is simply amazing but it does take quite the effort to get to. You not only have to hike but you have to climb up and over huge slippery boulders to reach the waterfall. Its a true outing in the rainforest in my opinion but please know your physical limitations if you decide to go to Victoria Falls.
-Sari Sari Falls: Another huge and glorious waterfall but be prepared for quite the hike.
-Middleham Falls: Again a simply amazing fall but be ready for a workout when hiking to this fall.
-Portsmouth: The 2nd largest city on the island and the home to the medical school. It is a pleasant town with good local restaurants, nice beaches and a historical fort you can visit.
If you have questions about any other attractions I have not mentioned please let me know. After setting up your accommodation at Drop Anchor I would be more than happy to set up any tours you are interested in. I can set up a single tour for you or if you would like package several together. I can customize tours or packages to your liking or if you are unsure of what attractions you want to visit while in Dominica let me know your interest and we can work together to find the ideal places for you to visit.
