We were staying at Manicou River cottages at the top of the Mountain. When we arrived at the bottom of the hill, Trevor the owner stopped our taxi and said that we would never make it up the road without a 4x4. He told us to take our gear out and come have a beer and would drive us up there in a few minutes. We talked with him for about an hour and had several beers cold beers. He got us to our retreat and we got settled in.
The following day we came down to his place. He treated us like family offering to drive us snorkeling the next day. The following day came and he was true to his word. He drove us over to where one of the top dive spots on the Island was and offered to come back and pick us up in a few hours. On the way back he took us to his house and him and his buddy Yem chopped up some fresh coconuts and gave them to my wife and I. We went back to his bar where Yem carved up some fresh fish they got off the fisherman on the beach and filleted them in the Manicou River that flows through his property. He taught my wife how to gut a fish and made us a wonderful dinner that night. We hung out there all night into the wee hours and had a blast. Wish we could have stayed later but be had a plane to catch. Trevor is a very kind guy who goes out of his way to make sure your experience on Dominica is the best. His place has a huge fully stocked bar with some specialty rums that he has made. On the one side he is working on opening a boutique and on the other side is the outdoor patio where you can sit by the flowing river and relax. We wish we could have spent more time there, because it felt like we were hanging with family.
We are glad that we had the opportunity to meet Trevor, and hope others will stop at him place and meet him too.
