“Very basic, good for large groups only.”
Reviewed 28 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

person found this review helpful

Let me start with this:
For a couple: 2/5 stars
For a group of 4 or more people: 3/5 stars

This is a basic place with 4 rooms that can sleep a lot of people. Owners live in apartment above. Floors were sticky and dirty. Showers didn't work very well. The faucet on one of them actually shot off when water pressure was turned up.

Owners were very nice and friendly and willing to help out with anything. Unfortunately the property they rent is not up to par. All four beds have cheap foam matresses so prepare to be in major back pain come each morning. Only one shower worked at a barely decent level. Price seemed to be at a decent level but just isn't worth it. We missed our first night here to airport delays, stayed the 2nd night and even though we had paid for a 3rd night, we just couldn't bare to stay so we left to go find and pay for another property.

I can only recommend this place for travellers that meet the following:
- group of 4 or more people
- people who don't get back pain from sleeping on foam matresses
- people will be spending almost all their time off the property
- don't mind a grungy place to stay

“Number One in Dominica!”
Reviewed 19 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

It was 8 of us, big family with kids that are all grown up now. As you can see from my last post Fiona was our savior when other place did not deliver last minute.
So here it is: We arrived to Dominica on Liat (yes late arrival) and car was waiting for us arranged by our dear Fiona. Driver did not mind to stop at the store so we could get all we needed for breakfast etc. During our drive he also took time to show us around and explain what we were seeing. As we arrived to our beautiful house Fiona was there to great us and within minutes we were all sitting at the porch and being served delicious dinner.
And I am talking table set up that had nothing less that any 5 star resort. Food was just out of this world. She arranged prior to our arrival all we wanted to do. See Fiona is a wise business lady and knows how to get you best time for good price. Since it was our first time in Dominica we opted for a driver instead of renting a car. It was a good choice. Our driver did not mind making small stops to show us around on the way to and from our chosen destinatios. We had a big surprise that was supposed to happen and again Fiona was a big help. Our middle son Kyle was going to propose to his long time girlfriend DOMINIKA (yes that's why he wanted this island). Fiona chose Trafalgar falls as a spot and it was perfect. Dominika said YES and we ended a day with special dinner, champagne, deserts and blue theme since blue is Dominika favorite color. You guessed it : all Fiona work!
In conclusion: This house is really all you want, comfortable, super clean, big to accommodate large family and with Fiona skills to make your stay all you want you can not go wrong. We had a beautiful time. Our kids are already asking when we can go back.
We were looking for a while for a good accommodation in Dominica and a few of them fail during process. Fiona and this house is a real deal. You will be happy there and be able to enjoy your vacation.

“Angel to the rescue.”
Reviewed 15 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This will be our first trip to Dominica. We booked a place to stay a few months ago and just a few days ago Trip Advisor sent us a message that house we were suppose to stay in was sold and we needed to look for new one. We are a family of 8 and finding something nice and within our price range was not an easy one. Well, Home Away From Home looked like a perfect match for us. With Trip Adviser help we reached out to the owners and I am so happy to say they went beyond and above to accommodate us for the time we needed.
Not only price but a true concern Fiona expressed through her several e mails to make sure I was no longer worried. Every question was answered, every concern addressed. And help with making our stay exactly what we where hoping to be as far as exploring the island. Thank you so much, we are counting days to our trip. Cant wait to meet you and thank you in person for all your help.
