Allow us to welcome you to Dominica, one of the world's best kept secrets.
We offer you to stay in the Maloan' villa in Tantan village located near the city of Portsmouth, the second largest city of Dominica.

The space


THE HOUSE & SURROUNDINGS
Maloan' villa was built in a very pleasant, quiet and peaceful location. There’s plenty of windows that brings the beautiful outside in. Available to you are 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, open kitchen with a dining area. The kitchen is equipped with anything you’ll need to prepare delicious meals and breakfast. Free access to the internet and hot water is also provided.
It’s a great place to relax and enjoy the breeze from the forest in the afternoon. You will have distant views of the caribean sea 5 min away.

BEACH and RIVERS
Maloan villa is located 10 minutes walk from TanTan Beach witch was one of the spots for the Pirates of the Caribean movie. You will enjoy also Purple turtles Beach witch is only 10 minutes drive from the house, on the way to Portsmouth.  
It will take you only 5 min walk to get access to the Manicou river and take a refreshing bath. You will no doubt enjoy bathing in the Picard river located near Ross’ medical school.

GETTING AROUND
We recommend that you rent a 4WD vehicle to get around the island. If driving on the left side frightens you, Cecil, a certified tour guide can take you around for a reasonable price. 

ACTIVITIES
Just south of Portsmouth you can expect to be met by a handful of rowers ready and willing to take you on a boat ride up to the Indian river. It can be a fascinating outing, taking you into an otherwise inaccessible habitat and offering a close-up view of the creatures that live at the water’s edge.
How about Cabrits National Park? It is best known as the site of the impressive 18th-century british garrison, Fort Shirley. The park is a fun place to explore. It is home to scores of hermit crabs,harmless snakes and ground lizards that scurry about the ruins and along the hiking trails that lead up to the 2 volcanic peaks.

RESTAURANTS
Pounkies’ restaurant and bar is located only 2 min walk from the house. Paradise cafe located in Holland street, Portsmouth, 10 min from Maloan’villa offers breakfast,lunch, local juices.

We spent three amazing weeks at Maloan' Villa. The house is great value - simple but beautiful and with everything we needed. The house is on a quiet track where most of the houses are still being developed, right next to beautiful forest, with a view down to the sea. The house is light, cool and airy with a great breeze that comes down from the mountains and keeps the house cool at night. The three bedrooms are all super comfy and equipped with bednets and flyscreens on the windows, which is a big plus as otherwise there are quite a few bugs/mosquitos about. The kitchen is small but equipped with everything you might need including a coffee maker and a blender (essential for making the most of the amazing fresh fruit available in Dominica!). The cupboards were thoughtfully stocked with all the basics and there was an amazing gift of fresh fruit in the house when we arrived (pineapple, mango, antilles apricot, passionfruit, soursop...!!!) There is a big porch (big enough to hang our hammock!) which is shady in the morning and gets the evening sun, and there's enough space in the garden for kids to run about and explore a bit. The house is just up from one of the best swimming beaches in Dominica at Tanetane (very peaceful, clear, beautiful sandy beach, perfect for young kids - probably a 10-15 minute walk, faster maybe if you're not going at 4 year old pace!). There is a small, friendly store on the way to the swimming beach and a decent but relatively pricy restaurant just close to the house, and more restaurants, stores and market at nearby Portsmouth/Picard (10 minute drive). For most people it's probably worth having a car to get to the shops and to be able to explore the rest of the amazing island - there is so much to see, but the distances are small enough that you can use this as a base to explore almost everything else on the island. The wifi connection is excellent and very reliable (in case like us you can't manage to check out completely from home!) Marie Laure and Laurent were super helpful and responsive both in booking and helping us arrange things once we arrived. There was plenty of clean, comfortable bed linen and towels. What made our stay really special though were our hosts' extended family who acted as our guides on several hikes and day trips - and brought their kids along to make friends with ours. It was such a pleasure to meet such great people and really made the stay for our kids. Thanks very much for a great experience!
