We were on a one-month round-trip of Dominica and travelled through Calibishie. We read a good review of Veranda View in Lonely Planet so we decided to go there. It was better than we had expected and ended up staying several nights. At the end of the trip we realized it was the best place we stayed during the whole trip (we also visited Guadeloupe) - better than the more expensive hotels.
The location is really beautiful, the rooms are nicely decorated, the building is painted in bright colors - these aspects combined made it like an oasis where we really felt we could relax for a couple of days. Hermien, who is very friendly, cooked us a tasty dinner, but was also very flexible when we wanted to eat out for a night. In the morning we fried our own eggs in the guesthouse kitchen. We are very active people, but we ended up spending a whole morning reading on the sofa, watching the waves, looking at our photos. So it was like a mix of feeling relaxed and at home (unlike many other places we stayed) and yet be attended to with good personal service.
