This is a very great guesthouse. It's small only 3 room and has a great atmosphere. Very nice owner who is serving good diner on request. The location is located on a top spot with the best view of any location we have been staying. Calibishi itself offers restaurants and little shops.

For some travellers, the stereotypical view of what a Caribbean seaside village should look like,isn't an all inclusive resort on an isolated white sand beach. It's a one road, palm fringed shoreline with a slightly shabby collection of painted wooden shacks and coloured fishing boats ,where everyone greets you and the locals are already on the rum at 4pm.

We just spent 6 days with Hermien in April, and loved our time there. Veranda View is right in the village of Calibieshie, and sits on the beach. The view from the vernada, looking at the tall islands of the harbor and both arms of the bay, with the beach, and reef right in front, is a million dollar view.... More

A family of four, Hermien accommodated us in one of the upstairs rooms. The rooms are absolutely nice, well decorated and well-equipped. It is a pleasure to prepare a (basic) meal on the terrace, the view is stunning. Claibishie is a perfect location to visit the north of the island, and we enjoyed staying inside the village rather than in... More

We were on a one-month round-trip of Dominica and travelled through Calibishie. We read a good review of Veranda View in Lonely Planet so we decided to go there. It was better than we had expected and ended up staying several nights. At the end of the trip we realized it was the best place we stayed during the whole... More

My husband and I spent 5 wonderful days at Veranda View Guest House. Set in an absolutely beautiful and idyllic spot right on the water, it is an extremely welcoming and friendly establishment. The owner Hermien is a very warm and special person and the other staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. Our room on the second... More

The setting on the small bay sheltered by an offshore reef gives this place a very nice location. This is a good base for venturing out into Calibishie. Visiting Calibishie, and especially partying over the weekend, was an unforgettable experience. Staying at this guesthouse, however, left me wishing I could forget some other aspects of our trip. The lady who... More

Thank you for your concern towards the sanitation situation in Calibishie. Unfortunately the 2 days that you stayed with us the village was most of the time without water, which is beyond my control. For the years we have been here the village has never been without water for such an extended period of time To my knowledge we tried... More

My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Veranda View and loved it. The room upstairs was simple yet lovely. We so enjoyed the sea breeze which was a constant blowing through all of the open windows. We loved all of the outdoor seating available and spent much more of our time there on the veranda than we did... More

This is a real find...we are a family of five, and took both of the rooms on the second floor. We were the only guests. The second floor is a large open terrace covered by a roof, with a living room, dining room table, and small kitchen with a little stove and a fridge. Beyond the covered area there is... More

Our stay at Veranda View was a perfect Caribbean experience: Casual, charming and colorful room. Helpful, friendly and interesting hostess, Hermien. Clean, beautiful and picturesque beach. No security issues at all. Will recommend to my friends with confidence.
