Saint Mark Parish Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 1Bathroom, Sleeps 6

La Bou is the name of this charming and very private retreat in the hills above Soufriere, Dominica. This retreat is comprised of 3 separate buildings set in the jungle on a 0.85 acre plot in a large valley. The main house houses the kitchen, the pantry, the office and the main bedroom. The second building is The Birdhouse Cottage, which is actually the second bedroom. The third building is a custom built entertainment area that features the large BBQ with kitchen sink and running water, one burner for making side dishes, a fire place with free fire wood provided and a large dining room table that comfortably seats six.

These buildings were all designed and built by a Swiss artist and his wife, who spend years dreaming up the lay-out and lovingly hand-building everything. The details of the architecture are astounding. The lot is a slightly sloping part of a large valley. The property is located at the end of a dirt road, so there is no through traffic. The neighboring area is filled with local gardens, jungle, hiking trails, sulphur springs, etc. This is a truly unique Nature retreat. Town is only a 10 minute drive down the hill and so is the ocean. The nearest Bar is only a 5 minute walk away. There is no TV or Internet at La Bou. Water is provided by the rain and electricity comes directly from the sun, by use of solar panels. Internet is available at the nearby CarRods Gardens Bar & Restaurant 1 km down the road. They have great Wifi and great food and drinks. Open everyday but Mondays.

About Arent & Mabel Brink

Mabel and I came here from St. Maarten. We were interested in buying a Restaurant that was listed for sale here. When that deal fell through, we decided to see what else was available on the island and what we found was La Bou. It was love at first sight. We love it and want to share it with the whole world.

Arent & Mabel Brink purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Arent & Mabel Brink chose Dominica

We choose this property for it's uniqueness and it's awesome private location. We never saw anything else like it! Truly amazing. Come stay here for a few days and you too will understand why we love it so much. It is magical!

What makes this cottage unique

The silence and solitude is unreal, yet you are only 5 minutes removed from civilization. Truly the best of both worlds. The local population is so nice, it is hard to imagine anyone could be that nice all the time. Come see for yourself.
