Harmony Villa is a very nice place, which is as beautiful as her owner Carla. Staying there even for one night makes you feel like you are at home with old friends. Carla is a good cook and her ginger tea is great! I was really happy to meet her and her beauty and kindness was like a gift.
La maison de Carla lui ressemble, elle est belle, harmonieuse et lumineuse. Une très belle rencontre et un endroit cosy et confortable pour se reposer après 6 heures de marche sur les chemins de la Dominique.

We stayed at harmony Villa for one night and it was a lovely experience. The hospitality showered on us by the host Mrs Carla armour was beyond our expectations. The villa has an ecclectic feel with a large interesting art collection. The villa is situated in the lush forests of Dominica and has a large wrap around verandah allowing you to lie or sit and relax and admire the well landscaped grounds. definitely well worth a trip.
