It was an absolute delight to stay at Sam's and Tim's Carnival Cabin. We started as guests and left after five days of amazing Dominican discoveries as great friends! The cabin is part of the Mermaid's Secret, a lodge developed by Tim and Sam in the rainforest on the East coast. 3 other similar cabins are on the site, a gathering place to share a dinner, have a drink and chat and the pool in the river adjacent to their property. What made the experience unique is really Sam's and Tim's personality, friendly, down to earth, always willing to help and give advices to combine the best combination of visits and explorations. You can choose to have the breakfast and dinner there and Sam's cooking makes both experiences another delight, Tim's positive attitude and funny stories are part of spending memorable moments! The other guests were very pleasant to discuss with and play a giant Jenga the last evening. The lodge is in a rural, beautiful part of the island, with various villages and places to explore, the people we met were all so friendly. Ask Tim to recommend Natalie's restaurant, the food is delicious, authentic of Dominica and her banana, raisins ginger muffins freshly backed were the cherry on the cake of one of our day hiking around. I think you'll understand that we gathered fond memories of our stay and will come back without an hesitations. We highly recommend the whole experience!
