The cottages are beautiful. They remind me of lovely cottages in French Polynesia at which I once had the privilege of staying. They have thought of everything, from clothesline discreetly tucked along the railing of the porches, to a foot washing tub of water at the cottage steps. To me, the idea that, because there may be a florescent light...

We thank the client for staying with us. We deeply regret that the client was impacted by activities that occurred on the beach. Our property is adjacent to one of the few sandy beaches in Dominica. It takes less than 30 seconds to walk from the cottage entrance into the sea. The beach is accessible to the public, and we...

The good. The location, on the ocean and the beach is great. The Cottages are ok but with some work, could be great. The bad was very bad. 1. Second day. Students from Ross University partying, yelling, screaming, swearing right in front of my unit for 4 hours the second day we were there. It was for about 4 hours...

We were at my sister's wedding at Picard Beach Cottages at the start of December - my girlfriend had to do some part time work while we were away and we were a little worried about the internet because we were so far from home. We didn't need to - the internet connection in the cottages was really excellent. The...

The town of Piccard and the cottages are a little untypical for Dominica. We enjoyed Dominica most for its laid back people, spacious and green charme, and untouched green landscape. The town of Piccard feels more like a US college town due to the medical school, the cottages directly on the white (!) beach are themselves arranged like a suburban...

We got married at Picard Beach Cottages at the beginning of December, and we had a wonderful time. The staff at the Cottages were extremely helpful, and planned the wedding with us from the beginning to the end. Our beach front cottages were clean, well-maintained and perfectly matched our requirements for a sustainable holiday. We had family and friends come...

We stayed two nights recently and enjoyed our stay. However, it did have a few bumps. First of all a tropical storm was passing through so the water was churning. We are inlanders normally but I had booked this place fro the convenience to the water. In fact it was great to sit on the porch and watch the waves....

We spent two weeks in August in two of the beach front cottages who are set in a very picturesque scenario under coconut palm trees on the beach, behind them a tropical garden. The westward view from the terrasses and the beach restaurant and bar offered a perfect setting for the sundowner. The staff in the resort was very kind...

Nice, clean and friendly. One step to the sea. Good snorkling. Everything is in the cottage, if you want, you can make your own meals. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. A nice restaurant next door, but in Portsmouth, nearby, you will find more restaurants. From here it is easy to drive around and to make some touristic trips.

Last month (February 2014) my husband and I stayed three nights at one of the beachfront cottages! All of the staff were so very kind and helpful. It was very enjoyable! It was special to wake up so close to the Caribbean Sea with gorgeous sailboats making their way in or out of Prince Rupert Bay. The sunsets were spectacular!...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Picard Beach Cottages, being & healing with Nature. The only Beach Cottages in Dominica where you literally step out of your cottage and onto the beach. Where you are literally 25 feet from a dip in the Caribbean Sea. Where you can sit on your porch and watch your children play safely in the sand or experience some of the most amazing romantic Sunsets. Where you HAVE to walk among a profusion of flowering and fruit trees and shrubs and our 500 year old Samaan Tree all vying for the attention of the countless birds just to get to your cottage. Where your locally built accommodations celebrate traditional 18th century style wooden bungalows which would have speckled Dominica's coasts and villages in those days. Where all the Team are just naturally sweet and courteous and really happy to be here at Picard Beach Cottages to be able to host you in Dominica. And where the owners are 100% local having spent 41 years and now 3 generations working as Pioneers of Dominica's Tourism Industry. As recipients of the Responsible Tourism Award in both 2012 and 2013 we continue to work in all aspects of our operations to be guardians of our heritage through various community and environmental activities and mentor-ship programs. Nestled on the shores of the old Picard Coconut Plantation on the North West coast of Dominica, the Nature Island of the Caribbean, fringed by Dominica's longest sandy beach, Picard Plantation is just south of Portsmouth and Ross University School of Medicine, in a quiet suburban area originally called Ayohayo by the island’s first settlers, the Arawaks. Our eighteen one bedroom en-suite air conditioned hardwood cottages each contains one queen bed, bathroom, kitchenette and living/dining area and private veranda. There is a daybed in the living area, a TV with over 50 channels of Cable television coverage, free wireless internet and iron & board. You will be supplied with local herbal & organic teas and cottage amenities. The Beach Front cottages are just steps away from the beach and the Beach View cottages have glimpses of the beach through the flowering and fruit garden. The Kitchenettes in the Standard cottages have a hotplates, fridge, kettles and coffee makers and our Standard Beach views have shower in the bathroom while the others, Superior cottages have kitchens with standing stoves with oven, fridges, kettles coffee makers and microwave on request (at a small daily fee), as well as a bathtub with Shower. Due to our strategic location you may choose to spend your time relaxing on our beach or in the gardens but we are also ideally located to take advantage of many of the natural attractions and restaurants in the area. We can arrange them all for you, these include; Scuba diving and snorkeling, whale watching, visiting the Cabrits National Park, taking a ride up the Indian river, where parts of the film, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean 1 & 11’ were filmed (a number of the executive crew members of the movie were also our guests), Bird Watching at the Syndicate Forest Reserve, visiting the Carib Model Village & Territory or anything you would like to do on the island. Our Wellbeing Pavillion is situated in our forested paddock where Pilates sesions are booked by appointment or various retreat sessions and meetings are held. Our therapists offer various health & beauty treatments by appointment for our guests. At Picard Beach ‘Wellness Eco’ Cottages we offer wildlife & adventure tours, Scuba diving, honeymoon and wedding packages and invite our guests to join in our wildlife preservation and environmentally sensitive operations and projects. Le Flambeau Restaurant & Beach Bar is situated right next door on the property of the Portsmouth Beach Hotel where meals and snacks and of-course beverages are available from 7:30am to 10pm while there are numerous other interesting places to eat in the vicinity. Many neighborhood taxis can take you around Portsmouth, Dominica's second town, should you wish to do some grocery shopping, if you choose to rent a vehicle, we can assist with all these arrangements too. ... more   less
