The apartments are situated on a hillside overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Hodges Bay, providing fantastic panoramic views that take in the rain forests and mountains. Located on the north eastern coast of Dominica, within 2km of the centre of the picturesque coastal village of Calibishie, where grocery stores, bars and numerous places to eat can be found. There is also an on site botanical garden for your relaxation and enjoyment. Garden includes many varieties of pretty tropical plants and fruit trees, including mango, avocado, pineapple, guava, coconut and noni. Sample some of the home grown fruit, sit in the sun with a good book or relax on a hammock observing the local wildlife.
We first came to Dominica as tourists. and fell in love with the island so much that we ended up purchasing Sunrise Garden Apartments a few years later. In January 2015, after a period of refurbishment, we opened for business and started taking bookings. We (Gary (UK) and Rose (Brazil)) never tire of exploring the endless trails and places of interest that this beautiful nature island has to offer, and we like to ensure that all our guests also benefit from our local knowledge and can fully enjoy every day of their precious vacation time.
Owner/Manager purchased this apartment in 2012
This property is in a quiet and peaceful location but is still only a 15-20 minute walk from the centre of the picturesque coastal village of Calibishie. With its spacious balcony and stunning views, Sunrise Garden is a great base to relax in between your Dominican adventures! Some of the best beaches on the island are also located in this North East corner of Dominica. The quiet access road in front of the property leads to numerous hiking trails that run through the hills behind Calibishie. Great views and great exercise!
As well as the views and tranquility we love the garden at this property. We have many flowers and fruit that we encourage the guests to enjoy as well.
Sunrise Garden Apartments is beautifully situated a 10-15minute walk outside of the village of Calibishie. Rose has done a lovely job of decorating the property with a perfect mix of quintessential Caribbean, indigenous Dominican and African-inspired decor. The space was impeccably clean and very well outfitted with kitchen utensils and appliances. We cooked at home a fair amount and really appreciated small touches like the tupperware for leftovers and pitchers for storing extra water and juices in the fridge. We were also able to drink from the tap here, which was a huge bonus. The master bedroom, living area and balcony all overlook the surrounding mountainside with views to the sea. All of the windows and patio doors were screened, allowing us to constantly enjoying cooling sea breezes and beautiful bird songs. The space also had a TV and an assortment of board games. It was lovely enjoying the sunrise from the balcony in the mornings and enjoying a cooling Kabuli (the local beer) while lounging on the balcony lounge chairs in the evenings. Gary and Rose provided everything we could have wanted, including an ample supply of towels and linens, luxurious bathrooms soaps, local travel literature and information. There was even a small library for us to enjoy in the house. They were also available at all times to answer our questions, give local insider tips, and facilitate our travel plans in the area. They arranged a local airport pickup when we arrived, and helped us move on when it was time to leave. We found the locals to be extremely friendly, transportation to be easy, and Dominica to be the perfect vacation spot with plenty of hiking, beaches, water and adventure activities.
