After walking down the path from the road it really was a pleasant surprise to see the local secret guesthouse - it is perfect. The big bonus is owner Cynthia who, with unstoppable energy and joy, got us connected to local people and culture, living close to nature. In such a nice way you never dreamed possible.
I had the extreme pleasure of meeting the owner, Cynthia, on Salisbury Beach, and can tell you that you will not find a finer or more gracious hostess anywhere! My Local Secret Guest House is nestled in a tropical garden, surrounded by fruits and vegetables and Dominican lushness. Located down a short path in the upper village of Salisbury, this beautiful house is perfect for those who truly want to have an authentic Dominican experience. The house is impeccably clean, with a lovely, totally supplied kitchen, 2 bedrooms, a very nice bathroom, a living/sitting room and a deck looking out to the lower garden. Cynthia makes sure that everything is perfect for your arrival, and for your stay. She and her family will cook for you, if you like, and she is also a fun and knowledgeable guide who can take you anywhere on the island (her husband is a driver, so you actually don't need a car!) If you want to experience the authentic culture and beauty of Dominica, and be treated like family, then My Local Secret Guest House is for you. I absolutely LOVE Cynthia!! Highly recommend!!
