Overview
Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Mero, Saint Joseph Parish, Dominica
Dominica was hit with a hurricane in September of 2017. My house was not damaged, but I do not have electricity or internet at this time. I do have hot and cold water that is safe to drink. I have lowered my price to accomodate for the lack of electricity. Tourist sites are open in Dominica, most hiking trails are cleared and the roads are clear and driveable. Dominica depends on tourists. Your visit to The Nature Isle will help lots of people.

Unique property on the beach in the center of village. Bed sit/Studio w/king in sleep loft and full futon in living room 1 bathroom w/hot shower downstairs and another bathroom in the open living space on the second floor. Wi fi throughout: Open air living space on second floor w/kitchen, bath w/hot shower, hammocks, hot tub, loungers. Sunset visible from open air room. On a beautiful deserte...

About the neighbourhood
Unique property located on the beach in the village of Layou. Bed sit apartment with a sleeping loft downstairs and an open air living area upstairs. 2 bathrooms with showers, 1 in the apartment and one in the open air living area. Situated in the heart of the village of Layou with the Caribbean sea just a few steps from the house and the Layou River available for fresh water bathing. If you want a true picture of life in a Dominican village, The Beach House will give you that. You can enjoy the music of village life. Several local food locations out the front door, grocery store next door. Local bus service on village road, listen for the honking vans. Off road parking, hot water, wireless internet, washer and air conditioning.
Getting around
You can use the local buses easily, they pass in front of the house, or you can walk 5 minutes out to the main road to flag down a bus. We do recommend a rental car, it is just easier to get around the island more quickly.
