Dominica cottages…rental accomodations overlooking the ocean at sea cliff cottages, dominica gas and water mix


Being one of the first places to offer tourist accommodation in Calibishie, we are fortunate in having long term and experienced staff to assist our guests and introduce them to our culture and village life. Our main goal is to offer our guests the opportunity to become part of the local lifestyle for the time that they are here, visiting with people and learning of the unique places and things to experience and explore that other tourists may not find. It seems to be working and our visitors have made strong connections with the area leaving not as “tourists” but as friends of the community. This is probably the reason for the large number of returning guests to Sea Cliff over the years.

A few minutes walk down a hillside path brings you to Hodges beach and river. It is one of the better beaches in the area due in part to the protection afforded by a series of small islands. A great swimming beach and there is also a little reef that can be fun for a bit of snorkeling. Often you will have the beach completely to yourself or perhaps share it with a fisherman casting his net over the waves. In addition, the Hodges River empties into the sea at this point and is a favourite spot for children to play, and for rinsing off the salt after an ocean swim.

Woodford Hill beach, Turtle beach and the beautiful Pointe Baptiste beach are also within walking distance. And yes, we do have sea turtles coming to our beaches to lay their eggs. Generally this is in late March, April and May with the giant leatherbacks arriving first and the hawksbills soon after. The turtles are protected by volunteer workers, and it is possible to contact them and view some of the turtles as they come to shore.

The village of Calibishie is about a mile or a twenty minute walk from the cottages. There you will find grocery stores, restaurants with some wonderful food, a post office, gas station, bank, and most of all friendly and helpful people. Click here for a Google map we did of our area and some of the amenities and attractions. When you are on the map site check the box for the first untitled layer.

There are many other places to explore, secluded waterfalls and river pools to swim in, nesting places for parrots, rain forests and incredible views from our ridge roads and paths. For those who wish to dive, there is a five star PADI dive centre located twelve miles away, in the village of Portsmouth, which offers certification courses as well as day and night diving. For more information click on or visit the site hosted by one of their divemasters, for a wide variety of photos of life on Dominica’s healthiest reefs.

There really is something for everyone here. Whether you wish to relax on the balcony watching the hawks float overhead, hike up mountain paths or swim out and explore the island in front of the cottages, no one is ever bored …..Come discover and experience the true Dominica with us.
