“A bit secluded”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2010

We stayed here for 3 nights in April, 2010. I will agree that Ellie is very nice and the grounds are beautiful but Mero is not very conveniently located. It is a 20 and 25 minute drive to Portsmouth and Roseau respectively and it is definitely not a nice drive to do at night. It does feel very isolated at night as there is not much in the area.

The apartments are big and relatively clean but our apartment didn't have screens on the windows which allowed bugs into the room at night. We closed the windows and found it very hot. Screens would solve this problem.

We stayed in the Royal Palm room. It definitely has it's positive sides but it needs some work. The shower door was a bit rickety and it didn't feel super clean. Maybe for Dominica it is a luxury apartment but I thought it fell a little short of that.

We stayed here for our honeymoon and it couldn't have been better. It was a great location because it wasn't too far from any part of the island and we could walk to a black sand beach. The owner is extremely helpful. She set us up with everything we needed to get around on the island, since we didn't want to have to hire a guide whenever we went somewhere. The rooms were great. You get your own apartment with a big balcony that looks over the ocean. If you stay here definitely go to the beach cafe down the hill in Mero. It is amazing! If you want to do the island on your own and for a good price, this is the place to go!

We stayed for a week at Sea View and were very pleased with our apartment which was cool, light and spacious and very well equipped. If we went back though, we'd pay the extra and have one of the apartments with a balcony as, although we did have outdoor seating, it was a bit cramped and without a view. And the view from the rest of the place is gorgeous, down the hill across Mero to the sea, so well worth paying for!

Ellie is a lovely host, not intrusive at all but happy to help with any queries or requests. The gardens are pretty and the whole place is well-maintained and clean. Sea View is up a steep hill from the main road (not noisy) and the beach, so if you don't have a car it's a bit of a hike and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who has any mobility issues. Once you get up the hill though, it's all on the flat, so if you've a car it's not a problem.

The beach at Mero is nice, with good places to hang out and to eat. Connie's beach bar is the most popular but we tried the other beach bars too and they were good. Nato's shop does good snacks and Nato and her family are lovely! The Sweet Treats store is probably the best stocked, but you can buy basics from two or three places without any problem. And even if you don't have a car you can get around easily as the buses are very regular. We went to Roseau, Soufriere and Scott's Head on the bus with no problems, and you can also easily get up to the north by bus.

Altogether, a great place to stay and we'd definitely go back! Thank you Ellie!

We stayed at Caribbean Sea View for 4 nights and loved the stay. The apartment was wonderfully spacious, clean with all conveniences and the huge balcony with the view of the caribbean sea view was gorgeous. Sunset on the balcony was like paradice.

We greatly enjoyed the small village Mero and the beach; and lots of food from Connie's. Ellie helped us very much with booking of a car and all the questions we had.

This is the best flat we have lived in in the caribbean. Moreover, it was cheap. We'd love to come back!

We stayed 1 week in the Caribbean Sea View Holiday Apartments ( Sea Br. ) in Mero in March 2010. We loved everything with respect to the appartment and espec. the view. Ellie was so helpfull and all was uncomplicated, which guranteed us a perfect stay, recovering from work. At night, the stars were shining and the hikes we made at day were spetecular. We had a real carribean feeling. So, everyone , who likes a self maintained place to stay on Dominica and find out the island by him/herself, beside a "real hotel business all in" we can suggest to stay at Caribbean Sea View Holiday Apartments.

Ellie provided cot and high chair, travel adapters, all bedding and towels. There was a laundry room on site and Ellie was helpful with all queries. We had a really nice time there and would definately go again.

Simply an amazing property, location, and owner. I traveled to Dominica with a friend for Creole Festival. Prior to arriving at the property Ellie was professional and prompt with all inquiries I sent to her. Her professionalism was still present once we arrived to the property. She went out of her way to ensure that we were comfortable and happy even bringing my friend fresh coconuts every morning and upgrading us to a larger room when we decided to extend our stay and someone else had rented the apartment we selected. Both apartments we stayed in were immaculate with a wonderful decor and the upstairs apartment has a phenomenal view. For the capital area the apartment is a 30 min bus ride away but the Mero location is the perfect midway point between capital and Portsmoth if you plan to visit both parts of the island. I plan to return to Dominica and would definitely stay with Ellie and family at the Caribbean Sea View Apartment.
