Jennifer and Crispin have one of the best spots on the whole island - quiet, secluded, but just minutes from Portsmouth. You get to live in a tree-house style condo, they make you amazing fruit and bread every morning for breakfast, it's always super clean, and you wake up to the sun and the sound of birds chirping in the morning. Plus, they know all the great local spots in Portsmouth and beyond, so can basically be your tour guides for the island. They really helped us out picking great stuff to see and do in Dominica which is key, because there's a TON of stuff to do. It was always amazing to have such a nice spot to come home to at the end of the day.
This vacation rental is near Portsmouth, very close to beaches and the city. Absolutely amazing location, beautiful handcrafted condo's in the trees. This was my absolute favourite place to stay in Dominica, and actually in any place I have every travelled. The owners are fantastic people, they make your stay an experience and treat you like they were hosting family or friends. Everything was very clean and top notch. I can't wait to go back here :) this was my favourite part of my whole trip to Dominica!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Jennifer and Crispin and would echo what others have said in their reviews. We loved being up in the hills watching the birds fly around the tree tops. We enjoyed the fresh herbal tea and fruit and homemade treats each morning. The rooms were spotless and wonderfully decorated--Jennifer could be an interior designer along with her baking skills. The landscaping and uniquely crafted cabin was also a highlight. Cripsin and Jennifer are both a great vibe and super helpful with ideas for things to see and do. We hope we are lucky enough to return and stay here again as this is a special place with wonderful hosts. Thank you for sharing your oasis with us!
What a fabulous place to stay. Jenn & Crispin are the most welcoming of hosts with fresh breakfast offerings every day and pleny of advice about what to do and where to visit. You need a robust vehicle to make it up the road but it's worth the effort to get away from it all. It's a 15 min drive down to town and beaches etc. Our lodgings were comfortable and well appointed. The dogs were friendly & lovable which added to our enjoyment. Jenn is a wonderful cook if you want to 'stay home' for an evening meal.
We would love to return for another stay....
Four nights was not enough at Hideaways! We wish we had longer to spend at Jennifer and Crispin’s retreat. They have created beautifully crafted accommodation and succeed in making guests feel relaxed. Their attention to detail is unsurpassable as all aspects of a special trip are catered for. So much thought and skill has gone into the construction. It’s unforgettable being surrounded by so much wood in a glamorous treehouse. The bed is huge and luxurious. Crispin makes regular fruit, juice and tea deliveries whilst Jennifer bakes wonderful cakes and pastries (all included in the price). Views of mountains, the calm Caribbean Sea and Guadeloupe can be seen from their property. A review wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the dogs - Baby and Bo. Such friendly animals! Lots of fun to watch. Just South of Portsmouth, it’s in a great location for exploring Cabrits, Mero beach, Syndicate, Milton Falls and diving sites along the North West coast.
