    Special note: We do offer Internet access, which can be used for checking and sending mails or do some quick research on the Web, but being online all day is not possible.
    Also, we prefer helpers to stay for a minimum duration of four weeks so as to allow time for a real exchange to take place.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The house is located in a beautiful area not far from the Pitons, in between the beaches of Choiseul, Piaye and Vieux-Fort.
    Our hosts can also use the secluded beach 20 min walk away for swimming.
    For waterfall lovers, the neighbouring parish of River Doree brags a silver-threaded stream which tumbles along at the bottom of a canyon 150 feet deep. A bridge, barely 20 feet wide, crosses it from side to side. If you stand on the bridge and drop a stone, several seconds go before you hear the splash as it hits the water.
    Within walking distance also lies the Saltibus Waterfall Trail, a two-hour trek through a verdant, shady, rainforest at the end of which you will be rewarded by a swim in a series of waterfalls.
    Further North, the pearl-black sand beach of Sabwisha offers the tranquility of the Caribbean sea next to the village of Choiseul.
    On your way back, you could also visit the Maison créole, a charming little artifact museum.

    Buses to Vieux-Fort and Soufrière pass quite regularly on the main road. The waiting time is shorter in the morning and in the evening though. There are no buses on Sunday and public holidays.
