Condo/Apartment
There are three bedrooms which rent seperately in this spacious apartment . Guests share the living room and well equipped kitchen with fellow travellers. There is an outside balcony for breakfast overlooking a garden full of fruit trees and friendly dogs. The bedrooms include one king size with ensuite bathroom and a double and twin room that share a bathroom. The secure apartment is located in the same building as the office of the British Honorary consul and an NGO and the owners live downstairs so there is opportunity to ask for local advice or support with organising tours, hiking or diving or for company to the hot springs, river or beach. The apartment is walking distance from a local mini supermarket and even to the heart of Roseau. However most people take a bus back up the hill. ...There are three bedrooms which rent seperately in this spacious apartment .

We are located just 10 minutes walk from the Stadium venue for the Creole Festival and the Cricket. We will gladly meet you from the ferry or arrange a taxi from the airport. We can organise car rental and tour guides for the Boiling Lake and other hikes and can also arrange fishing, snorkeling and boat trips to look for whales and dolphin. Two site holidays between our Birdwatchers Rainforest Cottage in the Mountains and starting and/or finishing in Roseau work well.More

It is true that unless you rent the whole apartment, the sitting area and kitchen are shared spaces with other guests and that on week days, the office opens at 8am. We also live downstairs and so it is more of a welcoming community than...More

About the neighbourhood
We are five minutes walk from the Princess Margaret Hospital and ten minutes walk downhill to Roseau , the Stadium and the River. Located in the quiet leafy suburb of Goodwill, with residential homes, a primary school , several churches, a basketball court and football field , a small supermarket and ATM machine close by. There is a very popular barbecue on Friday nights and a bus service at the end of the road. We have a Dial A ride Bus based at our organisation Lifeline, providing services for disabled and unaccompanied children and also have involvement with a host of civil society activities. We can drop you to local places of interest or bus stops if you decide not to rent a car. this is cheaper but you do need to think about how you will get home if you decide to go further afiel...
