Overview

Photos and Description of the Toucari vacation cottage rental

1500 sq ft tropical house with large deck and panoramic views

Mango Lodge is a secluded timber house with open-plan living and surrounded by nature. Inside the high ceilings, numerous doors and windows and open style gives the house a light and airy feel. Outside the huge roofed deck gives you space to relax or dine with a beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea. The half-acre garden surrounds you with nature and gives you a feeling of being hidden away from the world. It also provides numerous fruits and flowers from mangoes to limes, heliconia to hibiscus.

But this is no isolated jungle cabin. A two minute walk through the garden brings you out in the centre of the Toucari bay-front where to your left you have the village with its Rum Shops, fishing boats and kayak/paddle-board hire. A minute or two walking through the village and you are at the beach where you can relax or go snorkelling out to one of the best sites on the island.

Mango Lodge sleeps up to 6 guests in 2 bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, ceiling fan and doors that open out onto the deck with views of the ocean (yes you can sit up in bed and gaze out to the Caribbean Sea). The second bedroom has a queen-size bed plus a single bed, ceiling fan and views of the garden. There is also a stylish day-bed in the living area. All beds have quality mattresses, superior bedding and mosquito nets.

The spacious bathroom has an electric shower with instant hot water. The kitchen is large, simple and fully equipped with stove, fridge-freezer, coffee machine, toaster, dishwasher, washing machine and all the glassware, crockery and cookware you could need.

Many of the tourist sites promoted in Dominica are in the south (where the cruise ships dock). But here in the north-west we have lots of adventures which, though less advertised, are also less busy and just as spectacular. Fill your vacation with Cabrits National Park, Fort Shirley, the Indian River, Syndicate Trail, Milton Falls, Lapluy Falls, Lamothe River Falls, Cold Soufriere, Toucari Beach, Toucari reef snorkelling, Purple Turtle Beach, Rainforest horse-back riding, kayaking, paddle-boarding, sailing, and more.

So you may be tempted to sit on the deck all day and enjoy the beautiful view, watch the hummingbirds hover from flower to flower or check the sky for the broad-winged hawk or frigate bird. But we are surrounded by experiences and adventures. Within walking distance you can swim, snorkel, paddle-board, kayak, drink with the locals or eat lovely food on the beach. Our friend and neighbour will take you out for a leisurely boat trip to see the bat cave and snorkel on the WWI sunken wreck or to go fishing. He will also take you the 5 minute drive to one of two trails to two very different hidden waterfalls. Within a ten minute drive you can be at Cold Soufriere, a small area of bubbling mud in the centre of our drive-through volcano. Also just a ten minute drive is Cabrits National Park with Fort Shirley and some lovely forest walks to the ruins of a great British garrison, crumbling defenses with cannons still in place. And there is another great experience just 10 minutes away - the Indian River where you will be rowed up the mangrove edged river as Jonny Depp was in Pirates of the Caribbean. The list goes on, beach restaurants in Lagon, the islands biggest beach at Purple Turtle, bars, restaurants, the open fruit and veg market, massive tuna, marlin and mahi-mahi available straight from the fishing boat - all of this within a 15 minute drive or less.
