Dominica is a little more natural than many of the other Caribbean Islands. It is noted for its rainforests and cascading waterfalls. Because of its more natural state, and the small size of the island, Dominica villas are somewhat limited. Villa rentals do, however, exist and offer lovely, private settings for visitors. Check the list below for the best choices of rental properties and villas on Dominica that are available to meet your needs and provide the amenities you’re looking for in your island accommodations.
Dominica is a small island near Martinique on the eastern side of the Caribbean Sea. It is one of the islands in the Caribbean that has remained largely unaffected by civilization and maintains much of its native flavor and tradition. Still, there are a number of fine hotels and guest cottages clustered on the coast line to accommodate the tourist trade. If you’re looking for a large five-star villa, hotel or resort, Dominica probably isn’t the island for you. This island was formed through the shifting of the earth’s tectonic plates, and is primarily comprised of craggy hills and tropical forests.
Dominica is an ideal vacation destination for nature lovers. The Cabrits National Park and Morne Trois Pitons National Park offers hiking trails, native plants and trees, and waterfalls in abundance. Dominica is one of the very few islands in the Caribbean that still has a population of indigenous Kalinago (descendants of Dominica’s original occupants). Today, visitors can see some of the artifacts and crafts developed by descendants of these early settlers at any number of cultural events staged around the island during the course of the year. The World Creole Music Festival that is held in October each year is a great place to experience some of the rhythm and joy of the island and see the influence the French had on the inhabitants of the island.
You would think that being an island on the Caribbean, you could find a beach at every turn, but this island is less about the beach and more about the rain forests, lakes, natural pools, and tumbling waterfalls. Truly a garden setting, this island makes an excellent backdrop for an outdoor wedding or vow renewal ceremony. We have several villas that take advantage of these amazing views.
Hikers will find an abundance of trails to explore, and every turn will bring you face to face with natural beauty that can rival any work of art you’ve seen anywhere in the world. For a night you’ll remember forever, head to Rosalie Beach. Here, guides will take you to watch endangered sea turtles building nests to lay their eggs.
Like all the islands in Caribbean, there are plenty of water sports to keep you occupied. This area is well known for its whale watching opportunities, and day trips are easy to arrange. There is also access to scuba diving, snorkeling, and kayaking. The waters are warm and clear, making them a natural draw for all visitors.
