Overview

Photos and Description of the Toucari vacation cottage rental

Paradise - quiet cute and romantic with sunset views. A 4 poster bed

Treetops is a Caribbean style timber house newly built with open-plan living and surrounded by nature. Inside the open space feels light and airy with a high ceiling lots of shutters and doors allowing the breeze though to keep the cottage cool. Outside the roofed deck gives you space to relax on the hammock or dine with a beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea just 100 yards away. The trees surround you with nature and give you a feeling of seclusion. The deck is perfect to watch the birds and overlook the pelicans in the bay diving for fish. Every morning you wake in the four poster bed to watch the sailing boats cross the bay on their way to Guadaloupe. The cottage overlooks a sweeping canopy of almond and palm trees down to the coastline just 100 metres away. In the evening you can relax and watch the sunset and then later open the awning on the balcony to star gaze in the night sky. As you can imagine it is a very special place to stay.

Treetops sleeps 2 guests in an open plan area. The cottage is new and designed in the Caribbean style which feels fresh and bright. The four poster bed is queen-size with a ceiling fan above. Doors and shutters open out onto the deck and balcony with spectacular views of the sea and rainforest landscape. The bed has a quality mattress, quality bedding and draped mosquito nets. The seating area has a comfortable couch and coffee table.

The bathroom is so cute. The shower cubicle is built of wood and feels like you are in a rainforest spa. You have the option of instant hot shower or a cold rain shower, and even have slats to overlook the rainforest as you shower. Truly a relaxing space.

The kitchen is well equipped and beautifully built locally with mahogany worktops. It has a stove, fridge-freezer, coffee caffatiere, toaster, kettle and all the glassware, crockery and cookware needed for your stay. Even standing at the sink you have a wonderful view of the bay.

The cool breeze and sounds of nature fill this light-filled airy living space with stunning views in every direction. The cottage is also practical with easy access down the steps from the road and all the facilities that you will need to make you feel comfortable during your stay.

Once inside you are drawn to the deck and the view of the sea just 100 yards away over the treetops.

Location is important and Treetops is a 2 minute walk from Toucari with its couple of small local rum shops, beach and snorkelling. Portsmouth is only a 10 minute drive where you will find grocery shopping and lots of restaurants.

On those chill out days you can just wander down to Toucari to hang out with the locals, watch the fishermen bring in their catch or drink a chilled beer. Or just lay on the beach or splash about in the shallows or snorkel amongst the amazing reefs. Toucari is one of the islands most welcoming and friendly villages.

Toucari has the advantage of being off the beaten track but only 10-15 minutes drive to a good choice of restaurants and bars and grocery shopping. The biggest advantage of being based in the North however is having a wonderful choice of hikes, beaches and interesting sites to visit where you hardly ever see another tourist. The cruise ship passengers hardly ever come here from Roseau. Some of our recommended trips are only known by a few locals so you really feel like you are adventuring and discovering some spectacular scenes.

Cabrits National Park and historic Fort Shirley is well worth a visit, and less than 10 minutes drive. Being rowed down Indian river through the mangroves is a must and feels like you are travelling back in time. The guides will give you lots of information about the wildlife and local history even point out where Pirates of the Caribbean was filmed. A trip to Syndicate Trail to see the parrots and wander through the rainforest on a maintained track. There are numerous waterfalls and bathing pools at Milton Falls, Chaudierre pool, Lapluy Falls and Lamothe River Falls, or visit the volcano at Cold Soufriere. The nearest beach is Toucari with its reef snorkelling which is one of the top dive/snorkelling sites on the island. Dominica's largest beach is Purple Turtle with the picturesque anchored yachts only 10 mins drive. We even have horse-back riding, kayaking, paddle-boarding, sailing, and more, all within walking distance or a short drive away.
