My home is directly on the beach. You pass the door and go directly in the water! Town center and market are in a short walking distance. Fort Shirley is very close too, at the end of the beach. This is the place where Waitikubuli national trail ends.
The house is very simple, with little equipments for now.
To avoid certain days if you look for silence, and very well located for those who want to immerse themselves into local life.
I am living in this home intermittently with my 3 year old child.
I furnish it very simply, with what's to hand. I'm very proud of the shelves I built (even if they are still a little wobbly but it's a good start...)
Nothing is really finished yet: no table (but a little wooden board on three nice wood sticks), no seats (but nice bags turned into stools and a rolled matress used as a sofa).
That's why it's the right time for low budget travellers to enjoy it, because housing on the beach for this price is rare!
There is room for 4 people (2 double beds). The second bed is a matress on the floor. On request we can add extra mattresses.
In the morning you will apreciate to wake up in front of the sea. In the afternoon the atmosphere comes alive, conducive to multiple encounters: sailors from all countries, dominican families living in the neighbourhood or coming to enjoy the beach. Some evenings the atmosphere is very festive.
Please take note: the level of confort will not suit to everybody. Some love this place, others don't feel comfortable.
If you look for a neutral and perfectly clean place, you will find hotels around for a fair price.
If you like what is simple and typical, to discover local life like it really is, this home is for you.
You will have acces to all rooms. The kitchen is not very equipped yet (no fridge, small amount of ustensils) so plan to eat outside. There is local food around here up to 10 EC dollars.
Общение с гостями
Most of the time I will be there to welcome you.
I can also be sometimes overseas, in this case Friday, my child's father, will be there. He grew up here. He can inform you about all kind of things.
We receive you as we are, with our ups and downs.
I apreciate to have guests who feel responsible about the atmosphere of the place and of the trace they leave behind. Who admit the imperfections that make us humans.
I like the richness of meeting new people and sharing about our experiences.
My son David generally hurries to guide you into the house.
If that context is okay for you, you are welcome!
Другие важные подробности
For those who don't want to party, you MUST NOT BOOK A FRIDAY: you will have the sound system of the neighbouring bar in your ears until late in the night. Other days are rather quiet, although you can ear people passing by: the sleeping room has wooden wall, so it's not soundproof.
For those who want to enjoy "friday night", you must book on friday! There is party all around! (especially from october to april).
