“February Sunshine, Rainbows and a few shooting Stars”
We just returned from our second stay at Villa Passiflora and really hated to leave. The villa is spacious and breezy as the open floor plan catches the trade winds and the constant sound of the surf lulls you into a slower more peaceful pace. The caretakers are on the premises but totally unobtrusive. The watchdogs give a sense of safety and while they occasionally bark, as someone who lives with a dog, it is hardly noticeable. We generally start the day with a swim in the pool and coffee, then walk to Calibishie for a late breakfast or early lunch then walk to the beach or have Wendy of Untouchable Tours take us on an adventure. Later watch the sunset with a rum punch knowing our great dinner is waiting made by Isolene. She makes your stay lovely with ironed sheets and clean towels when you return at the end of the day out all is tidy and fresh. Last year we stayed with another couple for 9 nights, this year with the same friends for 12 nights and we are planning to return next year!
“What a gem!”
Having never been to Dominica, I was a little hesitant to book our accommodation sight unseen. However, after much research and reading the reviews on FlipKey and Vrbo, I was confident that I had made the right choice in choosing Villa PassiFlora. Villa PassiFlora did not disappoint, from arrival to departure, we were treated just like part of the family. Brad, Lisa and Isolene were the most gracious of hosts and so very helpful. Isolene's breakfasts were just want were needed for a break away from the hustle and bustle of life. The villa looks exactly as pictured, the views alone make the villa worth every penny spent and the . It is absolutely idyllic and perfect for either a romantic getaway or a family vacation. The location is great with a few restaurants in close walking proximity as well as a beach. You could even spend all your time in the villa and still feel like you had the best vacation ever! Stay at Villa PassiFlora, you won't want to leave, I know we didn't.
“Beautiful views of the atlantic from this lovely house”
This was our first time visiting Dominica. It lived up to everything we had hoped for: hiking in the rain forest, swimming in fresh water pools below waterfalls, hot springs and pools, beaches, whale sightings, snorkeling. Villa Passiflora is in the northeast of the island above a sleepy village. The house is situated on rocks above the atlantic, an easy walk to a lovely beach, with amazing views of the coastline. The house itself has nice amenities, great baths and beds, lovely pool to float in to watch the stars at night. Services were great - after a long day of hiking to Boiling Lake it was wonderful to come back to a home-cooked meal by the housekeeper waiting on the stove. Only negative is that you had to lock yourself and all rooms when you went to bed at night and when you leave due to potential petty crime, although we never felt threatened while in Dominica. To the contrary, all the locals seemed lovely, once you struck up a conversation. House was quite nice, with hammocks nicely placed, great wifi, and helpful caretakers. One thing - stairs are uneven, which means you have to pay attention when going up and down. Maybe not ideal for young kids or older people with balance issues. Use local guides to take you to the best places, and enjoy the beauty of this unusual island.
Paradise found! We had the most amazing week in Dominica at Villa Passiflora. The house itself was so much nicer than we had imagined, it is all we had dreamed of in a Carribean destination. Stylish, natural and very comfortable without being ostentatious. You immediately feel at one with your surroundings which are stunning! If you can prise yourself away from the pool and terrace, a short walk takes you to an amazing stretch of coast with interesting rock formations and a lovely beach. The village of Calibishie is charming, authentic and a great place to enjoy the local food. The surrounding vegetation was so lush and beautiful we felt like we were holidaying in a tropical paradise, with amazing walks to waterfalls and stunning beaches, eating coconuts off the beach, and fresh bananas and mangoes from the roadside stalls. Everybody was so friendly, especially the housekeeper who made us feel like family. We were thoroughly charmed by the place and hope to return as soon as we can. Many thanks to all.

“A perfect place in paradise”
Our family found Villa PassiFlora while we were looking for a place to bring all of our adult children to scuba dive, snorkel and make special memories. From the moment you catch a glimpse of this property driving up the driveway, you are taken in by its magic. This is a perfect place to enjoy the diverse Caribbean jewel of Dominica. It is located just above an amazing beach with ocean breezes to lull you to sleep. The house is meticulously maintained and caretakers are on the property to assist, but are quietly in the background. The home is even more beautiful than the website pictures can capture. A negative edge pool draws you into a place where you can appreciate an incredible wide-angle view while cooling off, chatting with family and enjoying a delicious rum punch. The housekeeper makes a fresh loaf of bread every morning and fresh tropical fruit is abundant. Calibishie is a perfect location for exploring all the nature the island has to offer-waterfalls, rainforest, hot pools, hiking, beautiful (empty) beaches... You can experience driving on the left side of the road through endless rain forest. Oxygen levels have to be some of the highest on the planet! Diving is superb. This is a treasure of a vacation spot and we would all go again in a heartbeat. (It may not be the spot for some who are challenged by stairs.)
“complete beauty and relaxation”
Villa Passi Flora is the ultimate in vacation home rentals. Not only is the island beautiful, but this villa is completely furnished with everything you would need...the kitchen has every tool, pan, gadget; the beds were extremely comfortable, and the open shower bath was wonderful. The furnishings were so comfortable and plentiful, that it made you feel as if you were in your own home. The staff is fantastic,, and the open air feeling of the villa is great. Perched on a cliff, with multiple alternate level verandas, you have sweeping views of the atlantic ocean, and striking views of nearby beach, cliffs and gardens. It is on the north side of the island, nestled in a small, friendly village; away from the hustle and bustle of nearby, but much busier villages. Easy to buy groceries, walk, hike and the scuba diving is very nice. I would recommend hiring a car for convenience.. I would certainly recommend PassiFlora Villa to anyone who wants peace, quiet, beauty and appreciate hiking and discovering the nature of this island.
“I promise that you will fall in love”
Awesome, perfect and wonderful. The pictures you see on the internet don't do the house or the island justice...nor could they as they are both amazing. Before the trip the owner of the house, Bruce, is extremely helpful and informative about both the island and the house. The staff at the house take great care of you ...and the fresh juices are die for! One of the best beaches on the island is less than a 10 minutes walk away and you fall asleep every night to the sound of the ocean. If you can't guess I highly recomend staying here!
“A Great Vacation”
Villa Passiflora has everything you need for a perfect Caribbean experience...open air living, books and a hammock, hillside views with cooling breezes yet close proximity to a beautiful (and often deserted) swimming beach, a roof deck for sunsets and star gazing, a great Caribbean music collection, nearby shopping and restaurants, a convenient location for exploring the island, and a wonderfully helpful and accommodating staff. I only regret that we didn't have a longer stay and that we missed mango season!
“Caribbean Living at its Best”
Villa PassiFlora is one of the most beautiful homes I have ever experienced. The view of the atlantic as you sit on the deck by the infinity pool is so relaxing, and the Caribbean style open air atmosphere is so refreshing. The rooms are lovely, clean and each has its own bath. At the top of the stairs is the "observatory" where you can sit and see the stars from the roof after sunset. The grounds of Villa PassiFlora are planted with native fruit trees, flowers, and shrubs. Stephan, the groundskeeper maintains a garden, and is always there to assist with whatever you might need. The trail down to the beach is well maintained. Once you reach the beach you discover a landscape that is dotted with coral reefs that emerge from the ocean inviting you to explore their tiny cities. Clown fish dart and beautiful snails flourish in these sunlit ponds. Just around the next rock, a wide sandy beach beckons, and a lovely cove invites you for a swim. You will no doubt arrive home hungry after an outing at the beach, and here is where Dominica really shines: the food! All kinds of fresh foods are available and Isolene is a fabulous cook! The kitchen is well equipped, and there are plenty of cookbooks covering the local cuisine. If you are not inclined to cook, Randy's Restaurant is right down the road, or Isolene can prepare something for you at home. The market is open Saturday and is a must! It is just a short drive to Portsmouth, and the market there has fresh food from local farmers, breads, fruits, sweets, and coconut juice made on the spot with a cutlass! Bring a jug and take some home. The passion fruit was our favorite. Cut them open, scoop out the seeds, put them in the blender, then strain, add water and a bit of sugar, wow! You will crave it all year long.
