Visitors to Calibishie, Dominica’s popular northeastern tourism destination, now have a waterfront luxury lodging option. Calibishie Cove is a large villa with four private suites which rent individually for prices from USD $120 to $240. Half of the accommodations feature kitchens in-suite.
Nestled above the sea, with views of the magnificent red rocks and greenery that make the northeast coast of Dominica so captivating, Calibishie Cove recently opened its doors to enthusiastic customer response.
Exemplifying the establishment’s Eco-Luxurious™ concept, all units feature hardwood and stone finishes and luxury touches like locally-made natural soaps and moisturizers. The guesthouse’s ‘green’ features include solar heated hot water, exceptional natural ventilation (the building was designed specifically for this site’s breezes and sun angles), rainwater catchment, and grey water reuse on site. The Paradise Penthouse unit features a private plunge pool with saline instead of chlorine.
The four suites integrate wonderfully with the lush natural surroundings. French doors in every room and large wraparound balconies make for an unforgettable indoor/outdoor living experience. Custom-built local hardwood furnishings and unique artwork complete the experience. Wireless Internet access and 110/220V electrical outlets are provided throughout.
A short walk down backyard steps leads to a pair of comfortable benches that overlook the sea and Treasure Island, just off the coast. The shaded spot is suited to quiet contemplation or a lively chat. Exemplifying the thoughtful touches found throughout, the owners have installed a bottle opener on one of the benches, so that guests may enjoy a toast of fresh local Kubuli beer from this forest perch.
Another short walk leads to a beautiful beach where a fresh, crystal clear river empties into the ocean. The cove features calm waters thanks to Treasure Island at its entrance. Good snorkeling is found between the beach and Treasure Island, which can be hiked in sturdy shoes. Kayaks are also available to rent from Calibishie Cove’s manager, for exploring the river, Treasure Island, and coast.
