Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Dominica

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Completed earlier this year, the home is a lovely 3 bedroom open-concept, oceanfront villa located above Hodges Beach on Dominica’s spectacular north east coast near the village of Calibishie. The home is like a large cozy cottage on a hill with only tropical trees between it and the sea. The idyllic 100 foot wrap around shaded deck provides private tranquility with breathtaking views to the sea, mountains and rainforest. The cooling trade winds bring the sound of the surf below and you can relax in one of the hammocks in between rainforest hikes, jaunts through the local village or plunges in the ocean.

The generous main room has a high ceiling for coolness and is appointed with comfortable imported sofas and local hand-crafted hardwood furniture, all of it brand new. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a large island with striking sea views for preparing and enjoying idyllic island meals. There is a 9 foot dinning table overlooking the sea and a smaller table on the garden side which is nice for coffee in the morning. Meals, fresh fruit, beverages and groceries can be arranged by our warm staff who live nearby. They can also help with cleaning, transport and a range of tourism services. We would be delighted to share our many personal connections with restaurants and outdoor adventure opportunities which range from deep sea fishing to hiking up to Boiling Lake or the Waitukubuli National Trail.

Dominica offers tremendous beauty and almost overwhelming nature. National geographic magazine calls Dominica one of the most beautiful countries in the world. You can literally touch the tropical forest off the deck and watch emerald green hummingbirds hover inches away. Right below is a trail to a river which pounds into sheltered Hodges Beach where there is safe swimming and an untouched coral reef. Walking out back you are steps from hiking the seemingly infinite plantation roads and trails which crisscross the mountains. Waterfalls, Sisserou Parrots, and rainbows are all right outside the door. So too is the brilliant Caribbean sun and the wonderful people of this peaceful island. It's so inviting to soak up some sun or curl up with a book in the shade.

The home comfortably sleeps 8. The 3 bedrooms come with full linen, wardrobes, fans and secure storage as well as two full bathrooms with hot showers. The sinks deliver cool drinkable water. Both US/CDN and UK/Dominican outlets are available in each room side by side and the windows and doors are fully secured. The generous master bedroom has a queen size bed, locally crafted furniture, an ensuite bathroom and forest and ocean views. French doors walk out to the private deck so the lovely ocean breeze and sound of the waves suffuse the room. The second bedroom has a queen size bed, locally crafted furniture and a view of the ocean. The third bedroom is a bunkbed room and has a mountain view. It has two single beds and a double and is suitable for a young family, children or extra guests.

Dominica offers unparalleled Caribbean beauty and wild nature. You will be staying in a relaxed and well-appointed oceanfront home that was designed to capture the magic of this tropical island. The property is located in the much sought after north coast near Calibishie and is ideal for a couple wishing a memorable tropical vacation or for a family or larger group who want an unforgettable experience.

We currently have lots of availability for the 2014/2015 winter season.

About Richard Heinzl

I’ve worked all over the world with Médecins Sans Frontières and searched far and wide for the most genuine and idyllic tropical location to build a vacation home. We fell in love with the wild intoxicating beauty of Dominica and built our dream here.

Richard Heinzl purchased this villa in 2011

Why Richard Heinzl chose Dominica

I’ve been working with the Kalinago people in the Carib Territory on a health research project and have visited Dominica 8 times in the last two years so I was able to search widely across the country for the ideal location to build a tropical retreat. Calibishie is amongst the most desirable destinations in the nation and is recognized as a tranquil and traveler friendly destination. It’s a 15 minute walk to the village of Calibishie where there are numerous restaurants and shops and an equally short jaunt to several stunning beaches. The airport is 20 minutes away by car.

What makes this villa unique

We think we've built the greatest deck in the nation. It's our favourite place to chill out and enjoy life. The deck is massive and covered for shade and privacy and the old growth forest is just over the railing. The ocean is right below so all you see is tropical forest and breathtaking views of the sea. It's an ultimate in serenity.

Stunning!!!

  • 5 out of 5
From the moment we first inquired about this lovely home to the moment we arrived, Richard was an excellent host and wealth of information. The caretakers were warm and while not intrusive, routinely checked on our family to assure we had everything we needed. We have traveled the world, and our family unanimously agree that every aspect of this vacation was perfect. The gorgeous home, warm Dominicans, and spectacularly beautiful nature exceeded our expectations.
Without hesitation, we recommend this home and experience. Thank you Richard for sharing your home!

I had a fabulous week at the Heinzl residence in Calibishie. The house is nicely located providing a spectacular view of Hodges Bay, as well as privacy on the large deck. The twin double doors opening to the deck and view allow a great indoor , outdoor Caribbean experience. I was surprised there were no mosquitos or biting insects, day or night. The interior is spacious, well ventilated complete with a great working kitchen and bath.
Marvlyn and Greg, the property managers and neighbours provided transportation, laundry services, local fresh fruit, and a wealth of knowledge. I enjoyed the luxury of walking to beaches, restaurants, rain forests and a colorful local bar in a safe, friendly, uncrowded setting. I am looking forward to another visit.

A Must See

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed at the Heinzl house in Calibishe for two weeks. I have been to well over 40 countries, and seen many places, but very few were as authentic as my experience with this house and the island. The house's main focus is a gorgeous deck, with views overlooking pristine forests leading to a view of the ocean. The hammocks provide perfect shade to read, relax and enjoy paradise. Its a view that no 5 star resort could ever dream of.
The house itself is fully equipped with everything you could need. I had a lot of work to do while down there and the internet is fast and reliable. Marvylyn and Gregory, who live in the house directly across, greeted us at the airport, and had a fridge full of drinks and snacks when we arrived. Marvylyn was able to help with laundry, and Gregory offered us rides to adjacent towns. They were very helpful with all of our needs. The location is ideal as well. It is rural enough to provide an authentic feel, but still walking distance to town where you can pick up all your basic necessities, with some great restaurants, and beautiful beaches.

Overall, a truly unique experiences that allows you to really get a feel for the Caribbean. A place that would truly appeal to everyone.

Unbelievable stay and the finest view in all of Dominica!

  • 5 out of 5
My girlfriend and I visited Dominica for two weeks this past September and were recommended to this house. Our expectations were met and exceeded! The house is beautiful and spacious, and the view overlooking the ocean from the balcony never gets old. The service is extremely knowledgeable, helpful and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The house is conveniently located to plenty of amenities, gorgeous beaches, hiking trails and a fine restaurant. We'll be back and would recommend these accommodations to anyone!

Calabishie house

  • 5 out of 5
This was an excellent place for our stay in Dominica. Close to the airport, a short walk to town, peaceful, quiet, but convenient. There are fantastic walks in pretty much any direction, whether up a plantation road into the hills, or through the jungle, or to the beach. The house itself was very comfortable and spacious and there was the most wonderful breeze blowing in off the ocean that made sitting on the deck, even when it was hot, an absolute pleasure.

Authentic Caribbean Tranquility

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I and our two teenage sons spent a week at the Heinzl home outside Calabishie in March. It was perfect for us – a simple, clean, comfortable and quite spacious Caribbean style house close to the village and a couple of beautiful beaches. From the deck we looked out over the ocean where we saw a pod of humpback whales one morning. We could walk from the house immediately up a narrow plantation road into the rain forest where we came across wildlife, including Sisserou parrots native only to Dominica. We were not looking for luxury western hotel accommodation. We wanted to be somewhere where we could experience the island culture and get some quiet relaxation.

Neighbours Marvlyn and Greg who are the property managers were very helpful. We hired Marvlyn to look after laundry and even a couple of meals prepared in the local style. Greg drove us around the island which saved us the hassle of car rental for not much extra expense.

We look forward to going back to stay at the same place for some future holiday.
