Unique property on the beach in the center of village. Truly a Dominican experience. Local eateries next door and across the street. Bed sit/Studio w/king in sleep loft and full futon in living room 1 bathroom w/hot shower downstairs with wireless internet. Open air living space on second floor. w/kitchen, bath w/hot shower, hammocks, hot tub, loungers. Safe, colorful neighborhood. Right on the beach. Off street parking. Fishing village so fresh fish may be available daily. We recommend a rental car, but the local bus service runs through town, listen for honking horn from bus drivers.
We live in Dominica part time right now. We spend 6 months throughout the year here and then 6 months in the U.S. in Arizona. We are avid scuba divers and hikers. We built the Beach House for family weekends and to store our small sailboats. We live in Salisbury, about 10 minutes away on the west coast of Dominica.
Patti Rendell purchased this house in 2011
This property is unique because it is on the beach. There are no other properties in this price range, that are on the beach.
on the beach. Wonderful outdoor living area on second floor. Hammocks and hot tub on second floor Cook top and sink. Bathroom with hot water.
Patti was the best !! She makes you very welcome and treats you as family. Love the woman !!! Would stay with her again and again !! The Beach house is very nice and we had the best of time with the neighbours, there are no friendlier people !!
The Beach House is an incredible place to stay! I found everything I needed to cook meals, bathe, sleep comfortably, and find attractions and resources all over the island. The house was very clean and well maintained, and also had several "no-fly" items like shampoo, lotion and sunscreen available when I arrived. The location in Layou is beautiful! Also it is a great place to meet locals, get food and supplies, and has a bus stop less than a quarter mile away (although the buses often come right to the front door too!). All of the neighbors were very friendly and helpful in making my first trip to Dominica unforgettable.
Patricia was an ideal host to rent from. She gave me invaluable information to help me with booking my flights from the US and learning more about Dominica, how to get around and where to go for any touring services I could've desired. Her responses to all of my inquires were always prompt, clear and concise. Her neighbor Scott was also very helpful. He showed me around the house, introduced me to the other neighbors, bought groceries for me for my first day or two, and left his contact numbers in case I needed anything else. Thank you Scott!
Read a few reviews that said the internet there didn't work sometimes or was spotty, but I did not experience that problem at any time throughout the week I was there. The internet was always connected and decently fast; a great luxury as I had no cell service anywhere on the island.
Overall I couldn't have been happier with my rental choice. I highly recommend this location for first timers in Dominica as well as returning visitors, and would love to stay there again when I go back. The unmatched price/location is definitely a huge plus, without sacrificing quality or comfort in any way. I give my highest regard to both the house itself and the owner/host.
In the center of the village of Layou. There is a small grocery market next door which also prepares local lunch. There is a shop across the street to buy fried chicken and bakes and a bar next door, Boyd's. Boyd also prepares lunch when he is open.
