“Delightful experience”
Reviewed December 12, 2011

I have visited Pointe Baptiste many times but this was the first stay in the cottage. Perfect for two people with front and back porch for eating, drinking or lounging. Of course the position of Pointe Baptiste – whether you are staying in the big house of the cottage – is what is so exquisite. The wild north coast of Dominica is on your door step: there's the cleverly planted garden of Pointe Baptiste (not forgetting the jasmine on the back porch), the red rocks and cliffs, and the two contrasting beaches, one of black sand and one of white sand, a five-minute walk down the trails from the house. The helpful owner lives on the estate and brought us fruit and home-grown herbs. There are always adventures galore in Dominica and Pointe Baptiste is one of the best.

We stayed at the guest house on the estate, wonderful flowers and trails around the estate leading to the beach and more. The Guest house itself is very original and historic seeming, could've been a great semi rustic stay but there were fleas in the bed, and the sheets and pillows smelled of mildew which was visible on the decorative pillows. Some simple updating could fix the problems and make it one of the better stays available on the island.
Upon discovering that it was fleas biting us we informed the caretaker and moved. He says he can't find the fleas, I told him to sleep in the bed and they would find him, however he insists it was food allergies or flying ants or such and charged us for a 7 day stay when we were only there for one flea-bitten get no sleep night. I know what a flea is and i know what i kept smacking and catching between my fingers to kill as I tried to sleep.
Take your chances if he fixes the flea or mildew problem. other than that it was a rustic, vintage little place with access to the best trails to the beach and Red Rock haven for dinner. We weren't there long enough to try the cooking service offered.

Pointe Baptiste is a 25 acre estate outside Calibishie on the north end of Dominica. There are two buildings on the estate, the main house and a small bungalow guest house. We rented the main house for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. We self catered, opting not to use the cook that came with the house since there were only two of us. The house is filled with interesting furnishings of a bygone era, British mahogany furniture, ivory handled sterling silver service, worm eaten books from the 1800s, etc. The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a living-dining area, full kitchen and an amazing veranda on the backside of the house where we spent most of our time. There are no screens, or air conditioning, but there was a steady breeze in May and ceiling fans and mosquito netting kept any bugs at bay. The bed in the master bedroom was comfortable and there was excellent water pressure and plenty of hot water. A private cove with black sand beach, the red rock peninsula and astounding landscaping made for a beautiful getaway. While the kitchen appliances show the degrading effects of the salt air, the refrigerator was cold and made ice, and the gas cooker was functional. Suitable for a family or 2 couples, the privacy, the views and the house are a wonderful option, albeit less modern, than the other accommodations on the north end of Dominica
