Dominica!! ... but where exactly ?

New Topic Oldest First

Greetings!

Let me introduce us, my name is Arthur and we are travelling to Dominica with my beautiful wife and little brother this March.

We plan to spend time from 6 months to one year on the island. Preparation time is going fast and we are bit struggling with the decision where exactly to settle down ...

We are backpacker type of persons, mostly coming to the island to enjoy nature, fishing and peace of mind! The best area for us would be in not too crowded area but at the same time it would help to have a little bit "bigger" settlement not TOO far ... I mean like 30 mins or so ?

Could You please recommend Your favourite areas of living in Dominica ? Considering what I mentioned above, where would You think we should settle ?

Second question is about renting a place there :) I got one email from this forum about helping with rentals in Dominica but that person has not replied jet! Do You know anyone who would want to help us out ? Our budget is not too big but from what I have read I think it is enough for a private place that qualifies for what we are looking for. If someone who could help reads this post, please reply ASAP! Your help will be highly appreciated!

Thank You ahead!

Arthur

Also, If you are still in search of an apartment our Real Estate Agency currently has a listing for a 2 bedroom apartment in Woodford Hill, which is near Calibishie (one of your desired locations). The apartment is listed for both short-term and long-term. Therefore if you chose to reside there short-term you can decide whether you are willing to remain long-term or seek accommodation elsewhere.

We also have a 2 bedroom apartment in Dublanc, a small community approximately 7 min. drive from the town of Portsmouth and approximately 45 min. drive from the capital city of Roseau. This apartment is only available for short-term rent at this time.

I am not sure how strictly Immigration officals deal with having a return ticket. However see the following link for other entry requirements to Dominica: http://www.dominica.dm/index.php/entry-requirements

Good day,

Local public transport allows large bags but may require the passenger to pay for the seats taken to make up for the passengers they would have lost.
