Cottage overview - owner's description

Mango Lodge is being rebuilt due to the damage caused by hurricane Maria last September. The new, stronger, brighter, elegant and charming timber cottage is now available to book from January 2019.

Mango Lodge is a secluded timber house with open-plan living and surrounded by nature. Inside the high ceilings, numerous doors and windows and open style gives the house a light and airy feel. Outside the huge roofed deck gives you space to relax or dine with a beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea. The half-acre garden surrounds you with nature and gives you a feeling of being hidden away from the world. It also provides numerous fruits and flowers from mangoes to limes, heliconia to hibiscus.

But this is no isolated jungle cabin. A two minute walk through the garden brings you out in the centre of the Toucari bay-front where to your left you have the village with its bars, restaurants and kayak/paddle-board hire. A minute or two walking through the village and you are at the beach where you can relax or go snorkelling out to Toucaru reef - one of the best sites on the island.

The new Mango Lodge will sleep up to 6 guests in 3 bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, ceiling fan and doors that open out onto the deck with views of the ocean (yes you can sit up in bed and gaze out to the Caribbean Sea). There is also an en-suite with wc and shower. The second bedroom has a queen-size bed, a private balcony facing the ocean, ceiling fan and views of the garden. The third bedroom has twin beds, a ceiling fan and views over the garden. There is also a stylish day-bed in the living area which allows for a seventh guest. All beds have quality mattresses, superior bedding and mosquito nets.

The spacious bathroom has an electric shower with instant hot water. The kitchen is large, simple and fully equipped with stove, fridge-freezer, coffee machine, toaster, dishwasher, washing machine and all the glassware, crockery and cookware you could need.

Many of the tourist sites promoted in Dominica are in the south (where the cruise ships dock). But here in the north-west we have lots of adventures which, though less advertised, are also less busy and just as spectacular. Fill your vacation with Cabrits National Park, Fort Shirley, the Indian River, Syndicate Trail, Milton Falls, Lapluy Falls, Lamothe River Falls, Cold Soufriere, Toucari Beach, Toucari reef snorkelling, Purple Turtle Beach, Rainforest horse-back riding, kayaking, paddle-boarding, sailing, and more.

Couple from Montreal, Canada Feb 2017

There are many things we liked about the rental, our favourite being the huge deck, with two large, very comfortable sofas. We set up our laptop on the table there, and the internet connection was fast and never failed. Being covered, the porch is ideal even when it's pouring, but it's open enough that you don't feel closed in, and you have a great view of the surroundings... We like to hike and go to the beach, so we were gone most of the day, every day, and the terrace was a welcome spot to have dinner in the evening (very few, if any, mosquitoes).
The house itself is pleasant and well-appointed. The bed is very comfortable and the sheets of excellent quality. You don't need air conditioning as there are lots of windows with a lovely breeze coming through. The water pressure in the shower is good. We missed having a TV, but appreciated having a washing machine and dish washer. There is a long clothesline just outside the door, and clothes dry surprisingly quickly.
You can find good local fruits and vegetables from street vendors, and grilled chicken on Fridays, but the grocery stores are poorly stocked. Don't bother trying to find a decent bottle of wine anywhere.
The location was ok, but not great for our needs. There are a few areas you can walk to, you can even walk the 7 km. to Portsmouth (although there's a killer hill on the way) or you can catch a local bus in Toucari to take you to Portsmouth if you want to transfer to another bus and go on further. The bus routes are limited though, and the buses are few and far between, which makes getting around difficult and time-consuming. There are no nice beaches in the Toucari area, so if you like spending time at the beach, I would suggest renting in the Calibishie area on the north-east side of the island. Taxis here are very expensive, and even if you agree on a price beforehand, you might be in for a surprise. Know also that there's a departure tax when leaving the island, payable in cash only.

Hello Andrew,
We were very pleased with the Mango Lodge and hope to come aging sometime soon. The cottage was very comfortable, the view, the breeze, your service and team of additional people for excursions and the Toucari area were lovely, the only thing I would change would be a longer stay!
One small suggestion, invest in better pots and pans!!
Sincerely,
Brenda Dwyer

Thank you Brenda for your lovely review. And OK, yes you're right, time to buy new pots and pans. I'll get that done this weekend!

Family from Longueuil, Canada Aug 2016

This place is amazing! A true vacation retreat! We loved the place and the people's working around. The beach, the little restaurant at the beach, the view on the terrace. Toucari Bay is a hidden gem in Dominica and you can go around Roseau very easily in a one hour ride. We're gonna come back!

Couple from Norman Wells, Canada Jul 2016

My wife and I spent a very enjoyable eight days at this property in late July, 2016.
The bungalow is well situated on a hill, some 4-5 minutes walk from the beach, amid very lush, tropical surroundings.
We awoke each morning to the sounds of birds, insects and the local roosters.
We found the property clean and well equipped with all the necessities.
A vehicle (preferably 4x4) is a must, if you want to explore the island.
The neighbour/caretaker was very congenial and his sons took us snorkelling over a nearby sunken wreck.
We did find the main bedroom somewhat warm at night and so we purchased a fan.
However, we gifted it to the caretaker upon our departure.
The only improvement I can think of would be to install a fan in the master bedroom.
There is a lot to see and do all over the island and we found the people friendly and helpful.
There are lots of restaurants within a 10 or 15-minute drive, and there is a well-stocked IGA about 12 minutes away.
I have no hesitation in recommending the Mango lodge to any prospective travellers to this idyllic island.

Thank you Seamus for this kind review. A new ceiling fan is now installed in the master bedroom.

Couple from Chevilly Larue, France Mar 2016

Une magnifique propriété, merveilleusement bien équipée et d'accès facile. Nous n'avions pas vraiment envie d'en partir.

Family from Tervuren , Belgium Aug 2015

Great place to live a true dominican experience! Confort and style in a remote place in the middle of beautiful nature.
