Cashew, a cozy, well-appointed cottage overlooking the Caribbean from Morne Anglais, is a 15 minute drive from the island's capital. It's a tranquil place where you can refresh your spirit surrounded by a verdant landscape with Caribbean sunsets & caressing breezes. It's great for long-term getaways and off-site working. Excellent WiFi connections. A writer's nook, veranda and deck offer space for work or relaxation. On-site hosts help you get situated & organize logistical needs.

Cashew Cottage is a perfect getaway for short or long visits to Dominica.
Snorkeling, diving, hiking, waterfalls, hot springs, and whale-watching are some of the many attractions within half an hour’s drive. If staying still more suits you, Cashew is also a perfect stay-at-home place to recharge your batteries, write, and distance work. It has a well-appointed kitchen, excellent WiFi connections, and a 'writer's nook.' You can rent a vehicle, or hire a car & driver for tours or to bring supplies to you without having to leave the cottage.

At 1,300 feet above sea level, the tidy, comfortable cottage stays mild throughout the year with temperatures ranging from the upper 60's in the evening to mid 80's during the day. There is almost always a breeze. No need for air conditioning! Even in August - the hottest month - those mountain breezes, sometimes complemented by a ceiling fan, bring comfortable nights.

For hiking, Cashew is 15 minutes up the mountainside to Giraudel, a village linked to the Waitukubuli National Trail and the gateway for climbing Morne Anglais, one of the island's tallest mountains. For other explorations, you can contact a neighbor who operates "Experiences Caribbean," one of Dominica's premier tour companies and is available to help you explore the island, or you can simply set out on your own in a rental car. Delightful, catered Caribbean meals brought to your door are also available through "Experiences Caribbean."

Cashew's owner, a retired American professor who has done some of his best writing, thinking, and course planning in the cottage's peaceful environment, loves to simply stay put, using the cottage's writer's nook, WiFi, and tranquility to 'free his mind.' He invites you to do the same!

In sum, Cashew is an exquisite, secluded place for individuals or couples - including honeymooners - who simply want to get off life's expressway onto place of calm and quiet, or to explore Dominica's many attractions.

Unless you already know the area, it is recommended that you arrive from the airport or ferry terminal via taxi or a private driver arranged for you after you've made your reservation, as opposed to navigating the narrow, twisting roads on your own, especially in the dark. Subsequently, a rental car can be delivered to you at the cottage. Valley Car Rental is recommended for that service.

When you arrive, your on-site hosts, who live in another cottage just down the hill, will greet you and help you settle in. Cashew will be thoroughly cleaned before and after each stay, following Airbnb's Advanced Cleaning Protocol, as well as once a week for those staying longer. Coffee, tea, and some basic food supplies await you when you arrive. And you can drink the water without any fear!

The cottage is powered by a 220V system, using the square pin plugs favored in the UK. There is, however, one, 110V flat pin plug at the cottage, along with a 220V power strip with four plug adapters that can be used to charge your devices.

FIRST ARRIVAL AT CASHEW: Although Google Maps shows Cashew's location and provides directions from Roseau to Giraudel, your GPS may not lead you directly to Cashew. At the time of your booking, however, I will provide you with detailed instructions for how to get to the cottage, particularly if you are planning to drive to the cottage after you arrive. I recommend, however, that you consider taking a taxi to the cottage for your initial arrival and then, if you are planning to self-drive, have a rental vehicle brought to you at the cottage subsequently. Valley Rent-a-Car will be happy to serve you, especially if you reserve your car on line in advance of your visit. Check valleyrentacar.com.

ADVANCED CLEANING PROTOCOL: In view of today's enhanced health and safety concerns, Cashew now applies AIRBNB's Advanced Cleaning Protocols.

THIRD GUEST AND SOFA BED: Cashew is best used by one or two guests. The bedroom contains two XL full beds. There is a sofa bed available, however, in the living room. This could be useful in the case where parents are accompanied by a child older than 4 years old who would prefer to have his or her own sleeping space, or for a guest with accessibility needs. Please advise at the time of booking if you are interested in this option.

EATING UPON ARRIVAL, INCLUDING A CATERED MEAL: There will be some dry goods available upon your arrival to provide you with a simple meal, as well as something to start you in the morning, at no extra charge. If you would prefer a catered Caribbean meal upon arrival (and throughout your stay), contact in advance of your departure Cashew's neighbor Daria Eugene (experiencescaribbean,com) to arrange that. Daria will be happy to treat you to a delicious meal when you arrive and more meals during your stay.

HOUSE MANUAL AND GUIDE: A house manual is in the cottage for your perusal and reference. Tourism materials are available in a wall-mounted rack next in the writer's nook.

CAR RENTAL AND TAXI: The recommended car rental company for Cashew is Valley Rent-a-Car, see above for contact info. Dominica has many taxi companies, most of which have a presence at the airport and in Roseau. I can arrange this with Miguel, who has a private, dependable car service. He will also run errands for you, such as purchasing groceries. Younis Taxi Service has brought guests to Cashew on many previous occasions. Another service to check on is Mally's Taxi and Tours Service, 64 Cork St. There is also The Master Taxi and Tours which advertises 24 - 7 availability. These taxi companies are on the internet.

TOURING
Michael Eugene, the owner/operator of Experiences Caribbean, can arrange tours for you. Micheal's wife, Daria, works with him, hosting at her home visitors from cruise ships and local hotels for Dominica cuisine tours. Michael can arrange your rainforest hike, spa tour, Kalinago culture tour, snorkling and visits to Dominica's natural and historical sites. Michael and Daria are a five minute walk from Cashew. Their contact information is available at the Experiences Caribbean website: experiencescaribbean.com. Just tell Michael or Daria that you will be at Cashew!

Cashew is situated at the uppermost part of a larger property called Exotica. Exotica's four acres support a variety of trees, flowering plants, and crops - all organically grown. The views from the cottage and the grounds are exquisite. Just above the cottage is Green Mountain Flowers, a nursery for tropical and exotic plants. The neighborhood is not densely settled. All the neighbors are very nice. Nearby neighbors offers touring and catered meal services.

People recognize me because I'm tall and have a pony tail. I recently retired following careers in the Federal government working in grassroots development in the Caribbean, particularly in Haiti, and from George Washington University where I was a professor in International Development Studies and International Affairs. I've a Ph.D. in Geography from McGill University in Montreal and a MA in Latin American Studies from the University of Florida. My BA is from The College of New Jersey in Trenton, NJ. I was born in Philadelphia. Over the years I've become a respected expert on Haiti and I speak Haitian Kreyol. I have a second home in Dominica, in the West Indies, where I was a Peace Corps Volunteer. Since Hurricane Maria left Dominica in ruins on 9/18/17 I have been flying the flag of Dominica at my home in Maryland as a token of solidarity with the battered island and its people. Finally, I enjoy sports, particularly baseball and enjoy 'shooting the breeze' - especially on my back deck when the weather permits - when others want to engage me in that particular 'sport!'
