At $16.50 US per night each person, Stonedge is the best value on Dominica, in the opinion of a second time visitor to the island. Didier is a dedicated, accommodating and attentive host, one who is always willing to provide service to all his guests, in any way he possibly can. As the Stonedge website advises "snobs and maniacs not welcome". At this price, one should not expect amenities available at The Ritz. What you will get is a clean, well equipped but rustic simple cottage with the best breezes and sunset views available anywhere in the Caribbean. Stonedge is in a very safe neighbourhood, has a free miniature golf course, lovely gardens and, most of all, peace and quiet. Didier's free tour on Tuesdays is what you'd pay $60 US per person for if booked with a tour operator.... fantastic. Do not question that it really is "free", it truly is! Didier takes one day off a week, Tuesdays, and likes to get away from the house to hike or visit other areas in the country to help him regroup and unwind. He loves having guests along for company. His cooking is not "fine cuisine" but, again, for the prices charged, "you get what you pay for". With no restaurants close by, even having a restaurant open and available for breakfasts and suppers every day shows Didier's dedication to his guests. Regarding the comments made by a guest who stated "Didier wanted to save the water".... only those who respect the scarcity of rain water during the Caribbean dry season can appreciates how difficult it is to supply ample water to all guests. We would have extended our 2 night stay by a few more days had we not already paid for our next accommodation ahead of time. Stonedge would not be an acceptable place for anyone wanting and expecting to "dress for dinner" but the most wonderful place for those budget travellers who appreciate a place of this high calibre at such a reasonable rate. Hats off to Didier for his committment to his guests. V & L, Canadian gals, April 10 & 11, 2006.
