LUXURY PRIVATE BEACHFRONT VILLA WITH SPECTACULAR VIEWS

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Dominica - Villa Vista

3 bdrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6 or 7

Villa Vista is a home away from home. This Mediterranean styled villa overlooks the enchanting Hodges bay and is nestled amidst the windswept fauna of Point Dubique on the east coast of Dominica. As its name suggests, it is a house of panoramic views of the Atlantic ocean, Hodges river as well as the majestic Mountain ranges of Morne Trois Piton and Morn Diablotin. Atlantic breezes refresh and inspire making this villa ideal for relaxation. In addition to the captivating views, you will delight in the pleasant sounds of the seasurf, parrots, seagulls, pelicans as well as the soothing melodies of the revitalizing winds that bless the villa.

This picturesque Villa Vista comprises two floors, the top floor housing the master bedroom and spa facilities. The ground floor has one and a half bathrooms and two bedrooms: a Queen-sized and two twin beds fondly called the green and blue rooms respectively. The kitchen is self-contained and outfitted with you in mind, to continue that home away from home experience. It comes complete with refrigerator, microwave, stove with oven, coffeemaker, and toaster. The living room is cosy with its bed/couch and flat screened television to keep you entertained- you may view a selection of local and foreign channels or just gaze at the beautiful scenery from this comfort zone. Or you may wish to recline on one of the deckchairs on the open terrace, engage in yoga or just swim in the revitalizing negative edged pool or just enjoy a good rum punch as you bask in the pool while gazing at the enthralling vista. If you like keeping fit, there is an invigorating walk or run down to the beckoning beach where you can engage one of the fishermen in conversation or just sit quietly alongside the rolling river or join in the relaxing art of fishing.

If you visit during the full moon, the nights will become your days and your nirvana. The upstairs master bedroom houses a king-sized bamboo bed, a hot tub and a pristine view of the land and seascape. All this can be enjoyed while you take a soothing soak in the villa’s Jacuzzi.

Villa Vista was built with you in mind, wireless/wifi to keep you linked with the rest of the world should you wish to remember that there is such a place, as the villa has a magical effect on all who enter.

Million Dollar View Property

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Vista is a clean, modern home in the NE section of Dominica -- more specifically in the village of Calibishie. And with the best view on the island, it's the place to stay! There is a continual breeze day and night, so it's great for private sunbathing and for fine sleeping weather.

The upstairs king bed is comfortable and the bathroom spacious. The neighborhood is quiet at night and you will be amazed by the starry sky. One cocktail hour while enjoying the upstairs terrace, in the distance we saw a whale breach three times. What an unexpected and delightful sight!

There is a nice grill for cooking fresh fish at dinner (buy at the Fisheries in Marigot) and the IGA in Portsmouth (a 30-minute drive) has a good selection of fresh vegetables. ... and, of course, with all the banana plantations at the north end, plenty of freshly picked bananas for breakfast.

Chris, the owner, and Gwyneth are both friendly and welcoming. There is very good internet for those wanting to stay connected.

Unbelievable

  • 5 out of 5
The photos of this villa don't do it justice--not only will the view take your breath away, but the hospitality from the owner and property manager was fantastic. Callibishie is a great place, freindly, of course, and the stores and restaraunts are convenient.
Dominica is like no other place--the natural beauty is incredible, and the people are welcoming.
We've been home for a while, but my mind will remain there for some time...

Our Favorite Dominican Hideaway

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay was absolutely wonderful!!! The house was even more beautiful than we imagined it would be, and everything was very comfortable. The pictures do not do it justice. Also, Gweneth, the lady who looks after the house, was so nice and welcoming, and we really appreciated that Chris and she accommodated us when we were running late the day of our arrival. She also gave us great dining and activity advice.

One suggestion would be to perhaps get a small sound system. The only reason we even thought of it was because the house had virtually everything else we could have asked for.

My only other complaint is that staying in such a great house made leaving Dominica even more difficult. However, it made us even more determined to visit Dominica again, and we will certainly be staying at Villa Vista when we do.

Wonderful Villa and Location

  • 5 out of 5
My family (my wife and I along with our eight-year-old son) stayed here for a week and absolutely loved it!

The villa is outstanding: roomy and well appointed with spectacular views over the bay. The pool is not large (no laps here) but was perfect for cooling down in after a day's exploring.

What we liked best was the short walk down to the beach (steps down from the villa through the forest). The beach is at the confluence of the ocean and a river, allowing two different experiences. The ocean-side beach is reasonably well protected by an off-shore island, but there are still waves to play in (and, outside the protection of the island, we saw surfers). The river-side is cooler (at least when we visited) and provides a relaxing soak (getting off the salt water). The beach is wonderful for beachcombing and just wandering.

We visited in July and were worried about heat and insects, but there was no issue with either. The ocean breezes kept the villa cool throughout the day, and we even used a blanket at night (in July!). And there were no insect issues: the beds have mosquito netting, but we never used them and spent the week bite-free.

The Calibishi area is ideal for visiting with lots to do. We particularly liked the hike to Chaudiere Pool and the drive through Pennville to the Cold Sulpher Springs. A four-wheel-drive car rental is a must to really enjoy Dominica and those two trips will give the car a workout. On the less-adventurous side, our son (and us!) loved the paddle-boats through the mangrove forest just east of Calibishi.

There are small grocery stores in Calibishi but we should of done a shopping trip to Picard (south of Portsmouth) for more extensive provisions.

There are a number of places to eat in the area: we particularly liked Escape (a beach bar a five minute drive from the Villa), Bamboo at Calibishi Lodges (also a five minute drive away) and a new restaurant at Calibishi Gardens (very short drive or 5 minute walk).

Great communication from the owner, and Gwenneth does a wonderful job in ensuring that everything is going smoothly.

At the end of the week, we moved off to the Roseau area for the second week of our vacation. We wish we could have stayed a second week at Villa Vista instead!

Thank you, Gwenneth, for your hospitatlity!

Paradise on Paradise Island

  • 5 out of 5
For anyone who wants to visit Dominica, this is the place to stay. The house was exactly as advertised with upside surprises in its lay out, views, pool, privacy, bedding, access, and house management. Both the Manager and Owner were very attentive and could not do more to make us comfortable while respecting our privacy. No hidden costs, or disappointing situations, only complete satisfaction with the villa. The house is very clean and new, and everything works and looks great, even the internet. The owner even gives you a cell phone to use on the island.

We went to Dominica to see the island: waterfalls, rivers, beaches, towns, and people, not cloistered in an all inclusive on a beach. Go to the Cayman Islands if you are looking for 4 star dining and white sand beaches with waiters to get you drinks. You have to work for it on Dominica but it is entirely worth it. This is the island for those who want to hike, see, do. Renting a car is a must. We witnessed no harassment or crime, even in the capital. Driving is a challenge but we did just fine. Getting to Portsmouth is only 30 min and the airport 20 min. There is a full size IGA grocery store in Portsmouth and you cook yourself or go out to the many good (but simple) restaurants near the villa. We used the local food store that the locals use for most of the trip and ate simple foods and the ubiquitous fruit available at road side stands. If you do plan on many days on the other side of the island near the capital, I'd suggest just staying over there for a night or two, as it can be 2 hrs each way to get back.

What is nice about this villa is the location. The Northeast part of the island is cooler than what we found to be stifling heat and sun on the Caribbean side. The winds and ocean sounds at night were incredibly pleasant. I would think that if you were staying on the ocean on the west side of the island, it would be hard to sleep due to the heat... but I'm from a northern climate, so take that for what it is worth. We found sleeping at the villa to be incredibly pleasant. We also drank the water from the tap, no issues for any of us (3 adults, 2 children).

I've been to 20 Caribbean islands and Dominica is in the top 2. Swim-able waterfall pools, beautiful beaches, clean water, high mountains and lush rain forests, with everyone being incredibly friendly, honest, and polite.

Owner's Response: What a wonderful family! We wish all of our guests would be just like them. Our house manger said it was a pleasure to be there for them and they left the villa in a perfect condition! We are very pleased that they enjoyed the villa and Dominica.
