Post Hurricane Update from Cocoa Cottages, and Dominica

It has been about 5 months since the Category 5 Hurricane MARIA struck Dominica with 265mph winds. It has been a life-changing experience for all. Dominica has made great strides towards its recovery.   Electric and water are being restored throughout the island every day. Hiking trails are being repaired and restored. Schools have re-opened. All shades of green are returning.

Cocoa Cottages has also been quick to get things cleaned up, restore roofs, water, and electric. We’ve decided to operate in a slightly different manner than our previous model. We still have hot showers, fed with natural spring water, clean sheets, dry rooms, a beautiful open air kitchen, and amazing people all around. Things are good. It is still open, warm, welcoming, quiet, and unique.

We will no longer be preparing meals, but guests are welcome to use the communal kitchen as they wish. Food is readily available in town at the outdoor market as well as several grocery stores.

We have set a one week minimum, and will now have weekly and monthly rates.

Welcome to Cocoa Cottages!

Dominica’s most unique Guest House perched high in the rain-forest just above the Dominican capital city of Roseau, Cocoa Cottage is the perfect place to stay for travelers seeking adventure, relaxation and an unforgettable experience.

You wouldn’t be coming to Dominica if you wanted an ordinary hotel. Set in the rain-forest, each of our guest rooms is totally unique, rustically comfortable and crafted by artisans with vivid colors and creative touches.

Why stay at Cocoa Cottages? Location, Location, Location!  Cocoa Cottages are located in the heart of the Roseau Valley, home of Morne Trois Pitons National Park. At Cocoa Cottage you are only 10 minutes away to the many activities, shopping, and dining of the capital city of Roseau, and less than 15 minutes to the starting points of many of Dominica’s major trails and sights, such as Trafalgar Falls, Middleham Falls, Freshwater Lake, Boeri Lake, Titou Gorge, the sulphur springs and Boiling Lake.

All of our rooms have private baths with hot showers and verandas; and there is a well stocked open-air kitchen for our guests to use. Cocoa Cottage is surrounded by many fruit trees and also cocoa trees – hence the name. If you are looking for a unique place to stay in harmony with Dominica nature – you just found it.
