Safe, colorful neighborhood. Right on the beach in the center of the village. You will experience how the village lives and become part of the community. Off street parking. Fishing village so fresh fish may be available daily. Mary's grocery next door has most things you need, plus she will cook for you if you ask. Nash Reynolds, the furniture maker across the street, also make beautiful cutting board out of the local wood.

We have owned a home in Dominica for 11 years. The Beach House was built for family beach days and the Villa Verde apartment was built under our house for when our children, family and friends visit so they can have some privacy while visiting. We live in a regular Dominican village, Salisbury, not an expat community. We believe Dominica has something special to offer. We are avid divers. If you are interested in diving we can refer you to the dive company that we use on the island or to one of the ones that is near by. We have tried them all. We are from the US, Arizona. Very different from Dominica. We live in Dominica part time right now, my husband still works, someone has to We travel frequently to different places. But we are not group travelers nor do we use travel agents. We search for places we want to go and research them and do all the booking arrangements ourselves. We are on the go travelers, up early and going until late. We have enjoyed meeting people visiting Dominica and watching them as they become entranced with the island.

During your stay
We wanted the Beach House to be an affordable and fun place for people to visit and experience life in a Dominican village. Since most people come to Dominica for the outdoor activities, we planned an open air living area on the second floor, accessed from outside stairs. The breeze and the views are amazing. We will meet you at the house to give you the keys and a tour, as well as to introduce you to the neighbors. If I am not on island, I have a wonderful neighbor at my house in Salisbury, Scott, who will meet and greet the guests. He does this because, "that is what neighbors do, help each other". That sums up Dominican people. If you want some local food, just ask Mary next door in the grocery store. She will save you some food in the afternoon, so you can have it when you return home at night, just ask her. Nash Reynolds, the furniture maker across the road, also makes beautiful local wood cutting boards. A beautiful reminder of your trip to Dominica.
