Our family just returned from 12 days in Dominica. We had selected to stay at the Galion-on-Sea, a stand-alone cottage which is managed by Caroline Charles of Oceanview Apartments. When we arrived we found major construction on the new sea wall just in front of the cottage. Caroline suggested that we might perfer to stay at Oceanview, which we did until the weekend when the construction halted. Although we loved the rustic cottage with its patio overlooking the national marine park, we did miss the fresh juices and fresh fruit which Caroline and her staff provided. In both locations we were able to walk to local restaurants in the village of Scotts Head and Soufiere. Everyone we met were friendly and extremely helpful.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Oceanview Apartments is located at the southernmost tip of Dominica, just above the quaint fishing village of Scott's Head - one of the most photographed and scenic areas of the Nature Island. We have three self-contained apartments set in a private and secure tropical garden. Our cliffside lookout provides a spectacular view of the sea and our nightly tradition is to gather to toast the setting of the sun. Apartment 1 is a two bedroom studio. Apartments 2 and 3 each have a queen bed +day bed. All of our apartments are equipped with television, fans (no AC), kitchenettes - stove, fridge, kettle, coffee maker, cutlery and dishes. We have free WiFi in the common area. We are perfectly situated for the hiking and diving enthusiast. The first leg of the Waitukubuli National Trail passes right in front of our gate. The Nature Island Dive Center is just 10 minutes away in neighboring Soufriere. Diving in the Scotts Head Marine Reserve has been listed as ONE OF THE TOP 10 DIVE SITES IN THE WORLD! Oceanview Apartments is the perfect accommodation for budget travelers who seek out an authentic Caribbean experience and enjoy immersing themselves in local culture. We have secure parking for guests with rental cars. However many of our guests prefer to explore the island's many attractions using the inexpensive bus system - a three minute walk takes you to the bus stop in Scotts Head. Buses/taxis can also take you to and from the airport in Marigot. We can also arrange dive bookings, hiking guides and full-island tours. We look forward to meeting you on your next trip to Dominica! Your hosts, Francis and Caroline Charles. ... more less
