Several snackets in Scotts Head and Soufriere are just a ten minute walk. The bay immediately in front of the cottage conceals a submerged volcano. This is the most well known of Dominica's 2 Marine National Parks. The road in front leads north to Soufriere and along the west coast to Roseau (25min.) and south only to the cul-de-sac village of Scotts Head.

Whilst utilised by the English owner on visits to Dominica, for the remainder of the time it is available to visiting tourists at these very attractive rates.
