Description
Sunshine Cottage in only 10 minutes away from the Capital of Roseau, on the main road to the beautiful Trafalgar Falls. Sunshine Cottage offers a unique an private mountain view. We are pleased to serve you fresh, organically grown vegetarian and/or vegan dishes only ! We recently just added a cottage to rent on the same site as the restaurant, by the same name: Sunshine Cottage is a modern, well built, cosy and comfortable house in the middle of the rainforest of the Roseau Valley. It has two bedrooms with Queen size beds, one bath with Italian shower, a cosy living room and open plan kitchenette (with sink, coffee/tea maker and fridge). The Cottage and the Restaurant are surrounded on all sides by the rainforest, tropical flowers and many different fruit trees. It's the perfect place to relax, reconnect with nature and with one another or simply live life !
