We stayed at the Ocean View Villa at Red Rock for 10 days and I only wish we could have stayed longer! My husband and I decided to be adventurous and visit Dominica as we had been dreaming of it for the last 2 years. It was really adventurous for us as we have a toddler! We took the plunge, booked flights and arrived at the most gorgeous Villa we have seen. Websites are great but you never know what you are really going to get. This place is the exception, it is better than the pictures and reviews. Our baby loved it from the minute she arrived. We were spoilt for choice, play on the beach, play in the private pool or just run around the large house and gardens. I felt so safe and comfortable that my husband went off on hikes while we stayed at the Villa. Elaine the housekeeper spoilt my baby with attention and of course made sure the Villa was immaculate. Jen-Jen the cook became a Grandma figure and my daughter loved her. It was like being at home! The house is open which makes it bearable in the heat and we felt safe leaving our doors constantly open. We did have to close one door on the rare occasion as the breeze blew into the open plan kitchen (I didn't complain, I wasn't cooking). Jen-Jen cooks the most delicious shrimp curry! The fire by the pool is romantic at night and we took advantage of it. We were lucky enough to see the full moon which lit the ocean up. The owners were wonderful and very accommodating to our needs. We were rather needy in the beginning as our luggage did not arrive for a few days and we needed baby things. We were lucky that the owners have a baby and supplied us with everything we needed and were on hand at all times. We were really pleased we took the plunge and choose Dominica as our vacation destination. We got to see some amazing sites that you simply cant describe accurately. The people were wonderful, very helpful and friendly. We made friends with Danny a local Rasta who went diving for Lobsters for us and who takes tour groups to the Red Rocks. At first glance you can be hesitant when greeting some of the people, but when you do, you get the biggest and friendliest smile back. They remember your name and greet you every time they see you. A vacation we will never forget and one we will be talking about for a very long time!
