Reviews about the Advert 17981
Advert details 17981
The cottages are different size designed with an open concept. Cathedral ceilings and tiled floors open onto balconies facing the sea. The water is fresh and pure, piped into the houses via the village water system from the rivers high in the mountains. The modern kitchens are complete with all that is needed for meal preparation. We are on a country lane along the sea and the grounds are planted with fruit trees, flowers and palms. Hummingbirds fly from blossom to blossom with their brilliant colours flashing in the sunlight. With over two acres everyone has their privacy to enjoy the outdoors. The views are wonderful as we look down on Hodges Bay and river with the mountains to the south. We try to be environmentally friendly using solar hot water, solar electricity plus composting. Two cottages have thier own washing machines and the others have free use of our laundry facility. A baby bed is also provided for those traveling with small children. Several barbeques are on the grounds for people who enjoy grilling an evening meal and the balconies have outdoor furniture for dining. Wireless internet access and complimentary pay-as-you-go cell phones are included with all cottages. There are no separate apartments attached to the cottages so you do not have to concern yourself with people living above, or below you, as each building is rented to only one group at a time.

There are several other beaches within walking distance for swimming as well as places to hike and explore. A lovely secluded waterfall and pool is found about three miles away which provides a perfect spot to swim and picnic. If you walk up into the hills behind us you will find small farms growing banana, citrus, avocado and root crops. The narrow roads wind along the top of the ridges. Parrots can be found nesting in the trees and the views looking over the mountains and down to the sea are truly breathtaking. Woodfordhill beach and Turtle beach, about two miles away, are known for the giant sea turtles coming in to lay their eggs. An incredible sight if you are lucky enough to be there at the right time. The village of Calibishie is about a mile or a twenty minute walk. There you will find restaurants, grocery stores and post office. The people are friendly and helpful so it is easy to make contact and learn about the diverse culture of this island. The Carib territory is just a few miles south of Calibishie and there you can meet these talented craftspeople as they work at their trade. The baskets and carvings are unique in their patterns and designs. Just a bit further takes you into the rain forest. For those who like to dive, there are two places in Portsmouth and Hikers can access the Waitikabuli Trail. Visit Chaudiere Fall and pool, swim in river pools and relax in the nature around you.
