Cozy All Wood Cabin; Ocean/Cabrits Views in Picard
Overlooking Ross University School of Medicine in Picard, Dominica, The Captain's Cabin is up the hill with spectacular views of sunsets, Prince Rupert Bay, Picard, Cabrits and Portsmouth. This brand new little gem sports a 4''x 14' deck with extended 2' x 6' dining or work table and an outside hot and cold water view shower!
Though it is nearby bustling Picard and the university life, the drive or walk up the hill makes it out of the way enough to feel like you have been transported to interior Dominica without having to drive more than 4 minutes from the main road! And you have, because we are at the tree top level, surrounded by Sisserou and Jaco Parrots, hummingbirds and hawks. A gorgeous garden is found next door at Barb Wire which also offers some nice guest rooms.
No neighbors above the property nor to your south so privacy is high and so are your reactions to the peace and quiet and constant water and Cabrits views you have all day. Great hikes start from here.
We offer free WiFi and a shuttle up and down the hill (with reasonable intervals...) so you won't need a car unless you want one. You can catch $1.50EC buses from Picard into Portsmouth from there or we will take you if we are on the way by! The bus into Rouseau is only $9EC (about $3,35US) from Picard as well. You also save on the entry fee ($10EC) at Syndicate Falls nearby since we have friends there.
Located under the deck of our largger guest room called the Peanut Farm Bungalow--, see our ad in FlipKey as well. At the Captain's Cabin, you can have your meals delivered to your room or keep your food in the small frig/freezer. Your stay is multifaceted' and totally relaxing. We have a gentle nature filled compound where you could stay all week and not get bored--the Picard River is a 5 minute walk away.
Concrete prison cells rent for over US$100/night in Picard, with no character or style whatsoever. This studio/one bedroom (the bed is in an uphill enclave that fits a full size (60" x 75'") bed with wall mounted light and fan.) is almost completely self contained. It has hot and cold water, a sink, outside shower, frig/freezer, gas 3 burner stove, toaster oven, blender and coffee maker and a four speaker car stereo system that will please all music lovers. The only thing missing is the toilet which is found in the guest bathroom at the front of the building, complete with stone shower, wood floor, and glass vessel sink!
Varnished wood floors and traditional layou and cedar shutters and French doors opening out to the deck, this little gem is providing a perfect retreat for those wanting to get away from it all but be close enough to walk to other Dominica features. There is a hot springs 5 min walk away and fruit trees are all over the property and neighboring lands. The Waitikubuli trail is up the hill only a 15 minute hike away.
Truly the only property combining Dominica nature and modern (we are completely off grid, all solar and rain water power) conveniences in the Portsmouth NW area of Dominica. See more pictures of our guest rooms on face book....Read more

This was a great base camp for us as we explored the surrounding area. Close to Syndicate, the Cabrits, Morne Diablotin and lots of snorkeling options. A perfect spot to relax at the end of the day or drink your morning coffee and watch for parrots!
