Rarely do I have the pleasure of staying at an accommodation that is actually nicer then the pictures but Villa Vista is one such property. The View is captivating, we spent two afternoons just hanging out on the deck reading and watching the ever shifting light and mood of the ocean. Although there are properties nearby, the siting of the house on the property gives an exceptional amount of privacy. Gweneth, the property manager, is warm and welcoming and Christopher, the owner, was easy to work with also and sent great directions to the villa. The villa is well equipped and the beds were comfortable. It is located about 1/2 mile from the scenic town of Calibishie where many good restaurants can be found and about 2 miles from the beautiful beach of Batibu. If you want snorkeling, kayaking, fishing etc, head over to Portsmouth (25 minute drive) to Toucari bay and check out "Keepin' it Real". Another option is offered by a nice young man, Wendy, who will collect you and take you on a hike for a small fee.
We also enjoyed the hot tub and plunge pool! Really a comfortable, modern villa with a killer view and many amenities near by. I would definitely stay here again!!
What a beautiful house Villa Vista is! Spectacular view, well appointed rooms, excellently equipped and a perfect location from which to explore the amazing island of Dominica. Chris, the owner, and Gweneth, the caretaker, could not have been kinder or more helpful. The house was spotless, the beds very comfortable, absolutely private, the house was a perfect setting for our holiday and for the wide age range in our group: from six to 79. We're already looking forward to returning to this incredibly special place.
Very luxurious, exceeded all our expectations, hike down to the secluded beach, breezy all the time, good cooking facilities, very private, Gweneth the caretaker was very helpful and gave us great advice on where to eat, shop and what to visit.
Our family, comprised of three middle school boys, flew into Melville on June 9th. From the moment we landed, we were engulfed in the friendliness that is Dominica. Chris Sorhaindo, the owner of Villa Vista, arranged for Lynn from Bonus car rental to scoop us up and drive us to the villa. Along the way, Lynn graciously offered an overview of Dominica including highlights of things to do, the town of Calibishe (the small town three minutes from the villa), where to purchase food, and much more. By the time we arrived at the villa (15 minutes north of the airport), we had more local insight to the island than we could have read in any of the guide books.
Upon our arrival at Villa Vista, we were greeted cheerily by Gweneth, the caretaker. She gave us a tour of the villa, a phone to make local calls on, and her contact information, just in case.
The villa, itself, is beautiful, and the views down the coast and the Hodges Beach steps below are beyond compare. We slept with the doors facing the pool and ocean open all night allowing the sea breezes to both cool the villa and serve as a natural mosquito deterrent. The beds all have mosquito nets, which we used as well, but could have easily done without. The kitchen had plenty of pots/pans etc. and opened to the patio at the counter area, which allowed for divine views and cooling breezes when cooking inside as well as grilling on the patio.
All in all, we were drawn to Dominica due to its untouched beauty. It is an island set back in time and a true gem. Go with a sense of adventure, and you will leave with enough photos and memories to last a lifetime. We are already planning our return to Villa Vista!
After taking Delta to Puerto Rico, we flew Liat Airlines to Dominica. Liat is a lovely airline with terrific customer service.
Flying through Puerto Rico made for an easy customs experience when reentering the US.
Driving is on the left, and horn signals are used by most when driving on the winding roads.
If you initiate contact by waving or saying hello, locals are incredibly friendly and will return the greeting. They are easily approachable for directions and insight as well.
Calibishe has two small grocery stores, an ATM machine (be aware that fees apply), a couple of small restaurants, and a gas station. There is also a small bakery just outside of town. If you prefer, they will deliver bread to the villa each morning.
Enjoy. We certainly did!
We arrived on the island at 9:30am due to our inter-island flight from Guadeloupe. We picked up our car and drove to the villa to drop off our luggage. The owner, Christopher and the caretaker, Gwenneth, greeted us.
While we waited for the villa to be cleaned we drove around Calibashie to get our bearings and then drove over to Portsmouth for lunch and groceries.
On our return to the villa, we were shown where everything was located, given directions about the wifi, gas grill, pool, etc. and we're also given a cell phone to use should we need it while on the island.
The villa was sparkling clean and as good, if not better than what the pictures show online.
The view is just gorgeous and the master bedroom was larger than expected.
The pool is a great plunge pool and was refreshing and cool. The pool itself gets sun from about 8:30 until 1:15. The patio and pool area gets sun until about 3:30.
The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were skimpy and they did not provide pillow covers for the spare pillows. Since we were only using one bedroom, we borrowed some from another bedroom (pillows thin and skimpy in all bedrooms).
The villa has lots of stone and the floors and bathrooms are very nice looking.
The gas grill was in excellent shape and worked very well. So many times the grills on the islands are old and rusty and do not cook the food very well, this was not the case here. I was even able to grill some nice BBQ chicken one night for dinner without having anything cook too much or too little.
Wifi was strong and we could even connect to DISH back home in the evening to watch a recorded show.
The only drawback is that there is no dishwasher.
Be sure to save your plastic bags from shopping as you will need them for trash bags. They only provided one trash bag and expect you to use bags from the grocery store (they will provide extras if needed).
If you have never stayed on an island in the hills, it may take a bit to get used to the wind. It made for very comfortable days by the pool, but when rain came at night, the winds got stronger and woke us up once or twice.
It was also too chilly to enjoy dinner sitting out on the deck by the pool.
A couple of locals told us that the stronger winds are not typical for this time of the year. It usually does not get this windy until hurricane season.
The wind does keep all of the mosquitos away - so that was a plus. We had no issues with skeeters or any type of insect the entire stay on the island.
We stayed at Villa Vista for 12 days. The views from the decks are superb and the location is perfect. Its great getting up in the morning and watching the sun rise. Lots of birds to keep you company - hummingbirds galore. It’s great to go out on the deck at night and watch the stars. The Villa feels very private and one can easily melt into the raw beauty of Dominica…
The Villa is well-equipped and comfortable, with everything you could possibly need for a home away from home. The appliances are in good working order. It is great to have a BBQ available – bought fish from fisherman and cooked them on the BBQ. There is no air-conditioning however it was never needed as the breezes kept it comfortable.
Chris and Gweneth made our stay wonderful. Chris contacted us several times during our stay to ensure that everything was okay. The website for the Villa represents the Villa accurately.
The Villa is close (1 MILE) to the village of Calibishie – just for the exercise we walked to town every morning. There is a small grocery store in Calibishie to get the basics but need to go to Portsmouth/Picard for a wider choice of groceries. If you time it right in the morning you can bump into the roving bread truck to get fresh bread and pastries.
There are a few restaurants in town and POZ restaurant is a close 5-10 min walk without having to venture into town - loved the fig pie appetizer.
There are a few places to visit that are close by – Red Rock (Next Street after POZ), Batibou Beach (about 10 min drive – what a great lunch at the beach bar) and Number One Beach. Driving distances/times – I could never make Portsmouth in less than 40 minutes as the roads are full of twists/curves and elevation changes. It made diving a bit of a chore as you eat up 90+ minutes just getting back and forth. There is a copy of Bradts Dominica travel guide in the Villa. It was great to have it and in retrospect we should have had the guide before our visit so we could have better planned our trip as there is so much to see and do in Dominica.
We enjoyed our stay at the Villa very much.
