Experience what comfortable sustainable living can be like!

Where you’ll be

Soufriere, Saint Mark Parish, Dominica

We're in the country, surrounded by a few other small farms. We're a 15 min walk/ 5 min drive down to the village where there are a few grocery stores and restaurants.

You can hike up into the mountains from the back of the yard, and we're an eighth of a mile from the first leg of the Waitunukabuli Hiking Trail, which traverses the entire island. The village of Soufriere is located on one of the most stunning and unique bays in the Caribbean. It is a marine reserve so the snorkeling and diving are awesome! Rated in the top five snorkeling and diving spots in the world! Champagne Bay, named for the "bubbling springs" in the ocean is right down the road and a great place to snorkel with a guide. They also offer food and drinks and are just soooo friendly. A good way to get acquainted with the underwaters of Dominica. I love our location. It is very private and lends itself well to writers, artists, people who seek a quiet place away from it all. Our land dead ends at the end of the Soufriere Valley so there is only our neighbor's vehicles occasionally passing. At the same time, a fifteen minute walk gets you a taxi to the main city of Roseau and from there you can take public taxis to all parts of the island for a very reasonable rate. There are also great tour guides available and rentals are abundant. However you choose to get around, Soufriere is a great location to start and a wonderful retreat to come back to at night. A 10 minute hike through the "bush" or as they say in Dominica "Zion" gets you to the hot springs that originate in the Soufriere Volcano. A great way to start or end your day.

I love to travel and experience different cultures and the beauty of nature everywhere I go. Love music, dancing, enjoying my time on the planet. Worked in local Caribbean radio for most of my life and at one point briefly owned and operated a great pizza place in New Orleans LA called Pie in the Sky. Crazy for music! My husband is per his description an artist/craftsman. I think he is a mad architect inventor builder but who is to say? Henri's work for me is incredibly unique, so very aesthetic and just makes you feel good when you are in the house. The delight is in the details...whether it be that certain curve of the wall heading to the shower area or that cool Roseau finished closet, his touch is unmistakable. His work has been featured in a Caribbean magazine as well as a homes magazine in Arkansas. Welcome to Henri's house! Let your senses be your guide!
