Beautiful stone crafted large 2 bedroom villa over looking the ocean, set in a tropical garden with coconut trees and flowers. This stunning property has an infinity pool with feature waterfall and fire pit with extra large verandas. The living and fully equipped kitchen area is open plan with views to the ocean with cool breeze flowing through. The bedrooms each have king size beds and en-suite bathrooms, again with views to the ocean. The rooms are large enough to accommodate extra beds. The villa has its own path to the beach with safe swimming. The villa is a short distance to the village where you will find a few grocery stores, restaurants, bank and health clinic.
There are natural sites of interest near by including the Red Rocks and Chaudier Falls to name a few. Take a stroll on the beach, swim, snorkel or just relax on the beach, there is something for everyone.
Relocated from Canada to Dominica in 2006. Built the Villa and other properties creating an oasis in paradise!
Stacey & Rita Hovde purchased this villa in 2006
Located on one of the best beaches in Dominica. Friendly people and community providing the perfect home from home.
The true beauty for me is the ever changing ocean and beach. On days it can be calm on others its a surfers play ground. The coral reef protects the beach and provides a beautiful home for the sea life. Constant breeze keeps you cool and fresh and the coconut and almond trees provide just enough shade.
Thank you for the opportunity to stay in such a great villa. The views are amazing and the beach as well as the pool and overall property were terrific. Elaine (housekeeper) was very helpful and wonderful. Jen Jen, the cook, was great. She prepared several delicious dinners for us. Both are sweet ladies and a real positive addition to our experience. We spent two days with Nigel guiding us to various locations on the island. He was also a great find and we highly recommend him. We liked the Rainbow restaurant best of the nearby ones we sampled We could have stayed longer !! ... but the 2 weeks were delightful.
WOW! Red Rock Haven exceeded every single expectation! We came to Dominica with 8 other people to get married. We had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed the property. Honestly we had quite a few people, the house would be better suited to accommodate about 6 max, but we made it work. Beautiful and secluded property in the charming town of Calabishie on the North East Coast. Super private, gated property with a long and winding driveway leading to a gorgeous stone and wood open air house. Great open floor plan with covered porches on the front and back. Open kitchen overlooks the living area, infinity pool and the most amazing view. Bedrooms on either side of the living area with private baths. We were disappointed the splash pools off each bathroom were not working, but we made the most of them anyway and turned them into a sunken star gazing sitting area. Delightful breezes blow in from the blue Atlantic and the waves can be heard throughout the house. Beautiful infinity pool overlooks the property and the absolutely best views you can imagine. A sloped winding path off the pool area leads down to the old bar and restaurant and past other rental units (all were empty when we stayed) and to Pointe Baptiste Beach. It was mostly deserted the entire time we stayed, though it is a public beach. It is here you will really see why the house is called Red Rock Haven. The house is open air, so we enjoyed visits from bats and birds flying through the house, so amazing! The housekeeper Elaine was absolutely fantastic - she was so personable and helpful. She even brought snake fat - a topical ointment for my groom who fell and twisted his ankle badly (don't worry it was his fault). Jen Jen the cook is amazing - she made us curried chicken, rice, plantains and salad on our first night here. We truly enjoyed ourselves, going to the local market in Calabishie (though it is very limited). We asked locals where to find fresh fish, fruits and vegetables and were able to get fish directly from the fishermen right off the boat. We purchased a whole Mahi Mahi for $7EC/lb! What a deal! We purchased the best bananas, mangoes, limes and avocado from a local, Neville in Calabishie. What a character he is! We were supposed to get married at Emerald Pool, but due to my now husband's accident we had to change the venue to the Red Rock house, which was perfect! We were married next to the infinity pool overlooking the Atlantic. One of the owners, Gina helped us through the legal
We stayed here for four nights over Christmas very last minute when we didn't like other accommodation we had booked into. We had looked at the villa initially but decided it was too expensive for just the two of us - well, I'm really glad we ended up staying here, and I think for what you get it is good value, and would be even more so if there were four of you! The whole house feels luxurious but in a way that is in tune with its surroundings, especially with it being open to the breezes and the sound of the sea. Really comfortable beds too.
The pool area is lovely, and that double hammock one of my favourite ever places to chill. It's a short stroll down to a lovely beach that never had many/any people on, it was beautiful to sit there and bring picnics down from the house, and we also brought our coffee and tea down each morning to enjoy the early morning light before getting on with the day. The sea was a little too rough to swim in when we were there.
Calibishie is a nice town, we would recommend eating at Poz, for the atmosphere and good international food, and because Poz is a fab guy who helped us out by getting us some fish to BBQ when he was going into town. It was amazing - we marinated some of the tuna and ate it raw as tuna tartar on pineapple, yum! and also recommend the casual restaurant behind the supermarket for delicious excellent value local food.
Overall Calibishie is great and the villa is wonderful. We were really sad to leave.
We arrived late evening in the dark and had to wait till the next morning to discover what beautiful spot we had landed in! The house is located in a lush, green setting 5 minutes from a secluded beach / bay.
The house has a homely feel to it, though we didnt expect the roof to be 'open' this turned out to be a good way of having a nice breeze flowing.
We found what we were looking for, quietness and GREAT FOOD thanks to Jen and the friendly locals in Calibishie.
I should have written this review months ago.
My husband, three children and I spent the 10 days surrounding New Year's at Red Rock Haven Ocean Villa. Stacey, Rita and Rhiann made our stay so very special. Our daughters truly enjoyed Rhiann's adventures hiking around the beaches and being the special person she is made for a wonderful trip for both of our daughters. Stacy and Rita are amazing people, we enjoyed seeing so much of Dominica with them and learning about the island they love so much. Within moments of arriving I had a coconut in my hand (thank you, Danny) with a splash of rum and I was on vacation. There are endless opportunities for hiking, climbing, sight-seeing or you can just enjoy the absolutely beautiful home Stacy made for all to enjoy. It looks and feels just like in the photos shown here. Fantastic service each day from a wonderful woman who visits each morning and cleans up around the house and is kind and filled with information about the area. Jen, is an amazing cook! We should have enjoyed her cooking for more than one night, well next time.
It is a beautiful home in the perfect location. Rita set up a massage for me right out by the pool! To walk down a few steps and enjoy the beautiful beach is amazing.
Dominica makes you feel healthy and Red Rock Haven makes you feel like royalty -- it's a nice combination. Dan and I can't wait to return to the Villa and enjoy more of what Dominica has to offer and spend time in Calabishie (very friendly town) and enjoy good times with Stacy and Rita!
This villa is an open air house, in the canopy of the jungle, just 30 seconds from the beach. The gorgeous stone house has a large flat screen TV, Apple TV, high speed wireless internet, and a great stereo! You might think "so what"; but take your iPhone or iPad and you might appreciate the luxury of your music in the evenings around the infinity pool. The entrance to the secreted property is gated, but candidly, we rarely locked the gate. Same with the house. We never felt unsafe nor vulnerable to theft. But, there is a safe in each room for your valuables. The home is just how it is described online. Entering into the kitchen/living space, you have a separately enclose bedroom on each side. Each bedroom has a king size bed and a private bath suite. There is plenty of closet space, and some drawer space on the bathroom. Each bath has a nice shower, and a dual sink. Rollaway beds are also in each room. The bedrooms and center living space open onto the stone patio with the pool. There is sturdy outdoor furniture, and even a hammock. The patio in the back is perched over the ocean below. In fact, you can see and hear the ocean from every place in the house, except the bathrooms! With the tradewinds always blowing, the house remains constantly cool, even when the sun is at its peak. The beach below is good for a dip and has some decent snorkeling. There are masks, snorkels and fins in the pool house. The humidity in the jungle can be hard on appliances, but the place was incredibly clean considering its constant exposure to mother nature. A local woman comes every day for an hour to clean up, sweep, and do the linens. She is fabulous, funny, polite, and more than willing to adjust her schedule to yours. At Red Rock, it's all about you! There is a cook available for a reasonable rate, but we did not need that service. The owners live close by, and are there for you in a moments notice. They can answer every question you have about the area and its attractions. They were also helpful with pre-trip planning. One thing that remains with me is the genuine friendliness of the people of Calibishie. You can have all the privacy you want at Red Rock, but without effort, if you wish, you will be warmly welcomed by the neighborhood, and the village. It's a wonderful getaway location that has everything you could wish for. And if by chance you wished for something not there, my guess is the people of Calibishie would find it for you. This place is truly magical.
