We travelled in Dominica again after months of debate; have a completely new adventure, or go back to beautiful Dominica. I'm so happy we returned, we had such a great time. This time we stayed in Calibishie during the middle of our trip in March. After an expensive, yet bumpy guest experience at another eco-lodging, we returned to Calibishie Cove. All five nights in the Sea View room were perfect. For the rates, Calibishie Cove is worth it! There is so much added value in the welcoming staff, a great breakfast every day, a cell phone for calling on the island. There is almost always a staff member available to answer questions. For many frequently asked questions, the owners have compiled a handy booklet for each room so you can familiarize yourself with Calibishie Cove, the neighborhood, and nearby attractions. So helpful.
For us, staying in the Sea View room again was like home. That might sound silly, but we had such a relaxing and amazing visit last year that we couldn't wait to get back. The sounds of the surf hitting the reef, the rock doves cooing in the morning, and the tree frogs chirping us to sleep at night, one can't help but fall in love with the place. We spent a lot of time talking with locals and some funny characters. People are really quite nice here, and are proud of their home.
There were of course relaxing hours spent on our private patio facing the bay, but there is just so much to do that you'll want to get out and about. The snorkeling is great and beaches nearby are so gorgeous, and not busy. In nearby Hodges bay I saw a seahorse, turtle, lobster, stingray, and of course all the amazing fish. Chaudierre Pool, Batibou and Hampstead beaches and visits to the Red Rocks and the Escape Beach Bar were favorite outings. We were PADI open water certified at Cabrits Dive Centre in nearby Portsmouth , which I highly recommend if you are thinking about it, and also did some nice diving in the south.
What ever activities bring you to this breathtaking island, or to beautiful Calibishie in particular, you will feel blessed staying at Calibishie Cove.
