Self-Contained for Self-Catering

A Paradise for all your Family

Just steps from your door is a charming little river complete with a "paddling" pool for toddlers, a swimming hole for older children. We have tubes for extra fun in the water. There's plenty of room for children to play and explore.  And we have a crib for the little ones.

Please note:  For your safety, we insist that children be supervised at all times.

We came to this island deciding we like the peace and quiet of it for ourselves. Enjoying being part of the local community. Gardens are a spectacle to behold along the lines of a botanical garden, we are told, so many different varieties of plants are easily grown here.

Pineapple, Limes, various other when in season yours to share.

What makes this cottage unique

We have five glorious beaches within easy reach. Restaurants nearby, local markets, and the airport: Douglas-Charles Airport (Melville Hall Airport airport code DOM) only 1 mile from Coffeeriver Cottages.

The river a few steps away for your enjoyment on our property.

This was our second trip to Dominica. We originally came for the natural beauty but will return for the wonderful people. Sandra and Stephen are accommodating and welcoming hosts. They are our family now! We are so grateful for having such wonderful folks helping us navigate the island. Without Sandra and Stephen it would have been difficult to learn local culture. We love you guys!!!!

You can schedule a local dinner through Sandra. She knows where the best eateries are. She can even arrange a pub crawl! Local rum and beer!!!

Dominica is one of the Caribbean's most unspoiled destinations. Lush and mountainous, its rich rainforest embraces rare bird species, crater lakes, tumbling cascades which include the Trafalgar Falls, beautiful grottoes and hot springs. Divers will adore the teeming reefs and underwater fumaroles. It really

is a natural paradise.

If you have any specific request for an activity your interested in, we will try to accommodate you.
