So if you want to get away from it all in a cool tropical environment then Harmony Villa is perfect for you. If you are a family or group of friends who want to have a home with your own conveniences and in the center of the island from where you can explore the best of Dominica's highlights, then Harmony Villa is good for you too. And if you want to be adventurous, active and do distant trail hiking and running in Dominica, then at 1700 feet above sea level, Harmony Villa is at the crossroads of Dominica and within walking distance from The Morne Trois Pitons Trail, segments 4 and 5 of the Waitukubuli National Trail and near Salton Falls not to mention literally 8 to 20 minutes drive from other hikes like Jaco Flats, Middleham Falls, Spanny's Falls and Emerald Pool, then for sure this place is perfectly situated for you. As a second home to a British & Dominican family, Harmony Villa can be rented in its entirety as a Vacation Home when guests have its exclusive use. Welcome drink & first dinner as well as first morning's breakfast is served on the main table on the large veranda and dinners are informal and delicious, but guests must give at least 24 hours notice for additional breakfasts and dinners. There is also the possibility of renting in our Forest Studio self contained apartment on the ground floor of the house, this is convenient for those who would rather not have a B&B stay and want a level of independence. The owners, having worked and lived in various parts of the world offer their home as a harmonious sanctuary with an expansive veranda, which wraps around two sides of the Villa overlooking most of the 2 acres of gardens and manicured rainforest. Here you can dine, relax, chat and just simply enjoy life. A fully furnished home with many beautiful antiques, heirlooms and an extensive Caribbean Art Collection imbues an inspiring atmosphere within the villa. The vernacular architecture of the villa incorporates effective use of the environment. The temperature is very comfortable and cooler than the coast so we do not require fans or air conditioning. The entire villa offers just over 3350 square feet of comfortable living spaces or you can find your place at one with nature anywhere within our gardens. Our ideal guests have been couples on holiday or on their Honeymoon, small Wedding Party guests, families, small groups of close friends, Hikers, Runners and Health enthusiasts, Musicians, Writers and other Artists seeking an inspiring space to reignite or nurture their creativity, Adventure seekers looking for the ideal central base from where to explore Dominica. Just anyone needing a real retreat to reconnect and re-energize their soul will really love Harmony Villa. The bedrooms are situated over 3 floors, the Master Suite and Green Room are on the Mezzanine level, the Blue Room is on the main floor where the Indoor dining Kitchen with bar and living room open onto the veranda. The 4th bedroom the Forest Room is on the lower level and ground floor to the garden. This room shares space with what was the owners' Art Studio and is now a living & dining space with a separate kitchenette. All of the rooms are en-suite and there is a half bathroom off the living room on the main floor as well. Our Team are always commended as being great hosts, and will take good care of you. Our housekeeper works daily and our Caretaker sleeps in a Ti Kai (creole for small house) on the property in the event that after-hours assistance is required. A little bit about your hosts, Dominican-born Carla comes from a family who has been involved in Tourism in Dominica for 44 years and has traveled widely calling on her many skills to keep her employed and busy. As well as being a trained Artist & Designer, Chef and Pilates & Personal Fitness Trainer, she is well suited to meet the requests and demands of her guests. Carla's British born husband, Mark has worked in development for over 35 years in countries across, Africa, the Caribbean and Asia, is a consummate host and loves to experiment with his cooking, guests have said he makes the meanest 'English Breakfast'. Their son Adam is the little helper, conversationalist and kid specialist for when guests come as families. Comments from guests who have stayed at Harmony Villa speak of the warmth of the welcome the goodness of the food and the feeling that they have just had a holiday spending some time at home with friends.More

We stayed at the Villa for 2 days. First of all it is not easy to find the property if you arrive with a rental car. Not all navigation aoftware places it correctly. We have not been provided by the owner with proper directions too. Traveling from the North we took the very rough road so we wast some time to detour. Finally getting the property we were met with Claudia’s the caretaker cold welcoming and unfriendly attitude. Thanks to her sickness we have been rejected with her dinner’s service that we expected at the time of arrival due to our early agreement. So we were directed by her instructions to found nearby minimarket that could supply us for the dinner’s meals only with spaghetti, frozen chicken legs, ketchup and a small plastic bottle of local rhum. Next morning we were serviced with awful breakfast. Needless to say that Claudia came at 8:00 taking into account that the sunrise in this paradise island was at 6 a.m. but we were finally started to be serviced only at 8:48 Eggs were hardly overcooked, tea and coffee we did by ourselves, we got 4 very tiny slices of watermelon and bread and cheese and 2 teaspoons of jam for 4 persons - that’s a shame! So we kindly asked her to do not prepare a breakfast next day. As for the house it is very old and need serious renovation. Master bedroom bed is too short and tiny even for us. I am 183 cm (6 foots) and M European size (S size US) so it was very uncomfortable. Showers were broken and we found dust everywhere. Not recommended for allergic or squeamish people. The house is very dark inside even at the daylight. The main purpose of our visit of this part of Dominica is the natural walks. However we haven’t be provided with owner’s suggestions not prior our arrival not at the place’s the guide book. Simply the guide book was not exist. We asked Claudia about good paths to walk but we were provided with wrong information. Emerald pool is just the wast of time (it’s not a free attraction indeed), Segment 4 is very hard to trek as it starts with slippery stones path through the river so we did 100 m only). The most attractive and absolutely amazing (but we were strongly advised by Claudia to do not going through) is the 10 minutes walk to Rosalie bay beach. All the way are many tropical flowers and plants like a Botanical garden. Itself. At the end of the path you will find a fantastic beach with very unusual black sand and rough Atlantic waves. Our kids (7&13 y.o.) like it so much so we did it next day again. Nearby the villa there is a French owner’s restaurant Z&Z that serves ab fab fantastic fish meals. High quality French wines by glass like Macon-Village and Graves AOC’s also amazing and very unusual on this island. The place is very popular with locals so it is strongly advised to reserve a table if you come over a weekend. My wife speaks French so it really helps us. That’s strange that the villa’s owner and caretaker didn’t advised us some restaurants nor provided us with meal services or groceries despite that I made a long time correspondence with them as I am very demanding on meal and we had 2 kids traveling with us. At the end of our visit we knew that the villa will be refurbished and it comes under new management soon. I hope that the new management will be able to serve its clientele much better than it goes this time so we will definitely return as Dominica is a hidden gem!

When we arrived at Harmony Villa it was breath-taking! I was a co-host for a retreat with 5 other women and we saw the veranda, we fell in love. The house was charming, full of art and bright colors. The ladies and I enjoyed our stay very much! It was a comfortable setting with the little luxuries that made it feel so good. Claudia and Kalin were FANTASTIC! They really made us feel at home. When I was in "work" mode the environment made it really easy to relax and just enjoy the moment. At times, I couldn't help just staring out at the rain forest or the lush landscaping surrounding the home. It was the ideal meeting space for our retreat and was easy to get to the hiking excursions. I highly recommend this place as a place to stay for your visit in Dominica.

we rented this villa for 5 nights, with our extended family including a baby. we were warmly welcomed by the cook and housekeeper, who had prepared a meal because we were arriving late. the villa is clean and comfortable and has all the necessary amenities, including a well equipped kitchen, laundry and drying machine. it is in the middle of the rain forest, so there was always something to see or hear. it is conveniently located near Pont Cassé, so that you can get anywhere on the island in half an hour. the owner helped us organize our trip by arranging for guides for bird-watching and hiking and giving us practical advise.

We stayed at Harmony Villa for one week, and loved everything about it. The house -- which has no sign to identify it, in keeping with its sense of necessary privacy -- is high in the Dominican rain forest. But the area around Harmony Villa has been cleared and planted with flowers, and so the rain forest is held at arms length. The owner, Carla Armour, is so friendly and knowledgeable, and the stay comes with a welcome dinner and daily breakfasts. The rooms are pleasing and sizeable, and the house was a large veranda to die for. We were the only guests there so we had the house to ourselves, but it can accommodate up to four parties. Because Harmony Villa is high up in the rain forest, it is easy to get to the many hiking trails through the forest. Two great destinations are the Emerald Pool and Mindenhall Falls. These trails are some of what make Dominica so special, though they are not always easy walking and plan for longer hike times. But as frequently was our experience in Dominica, the greatest pleasure of the island -- even better than the warm sun and lovely sights -- is the people. We found Dominicans to be consistently friendly, pleasant and ready to help. The island has kept big international hotels et al (and their influence) largely off the island, and I think that helps explain some of the positive instincts of the residents. There are some downsides for sure, but you won't find any of them at Carla Armour's place.

We honestly try to do for our guests what we would for a good and old friend always mindful that there may be something special that truly makes you feel at home, it sounds like we succeeded. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you both back some day, because it was indeed a pleasure! Thanks again for taking the time to post this. With warm regards, Carla and the rest of the Harmony Gang.

We spent four wonderful days at Harmony Villa in December 2014 - this place is special! The house itself is immaculate - beautifully decorated rooms and a superbly-equipped kitchen - and feels like a home. There are lots of really nice touches and Carla has thought of everything! There are cosy areas inside and a fantastic terrace outside - great for meals and reading/games in the evening. The setting is really spectacular - carved out of the trees and surrounded by dense rainforest, with lots of interesting plants and flowers. The house is located in the centre of the island, which we found was ideal for taking in the highlights of the island - you're never too far from anywhere and Carla and her helpful staff are on hand to provide hints and tips (including on sights to see, whale watching and what activities to avoid after rain!). Dominica itself is beautiful - a great mix of adventure and relaxation (recommend Dale's brilliant Bubble Beach!). We sampled both, but wish we'd have done our research a bit more and come with proper walking gear - there are some great treks to be done if you have the right equipment. You can really find your own bit of paradise on Dominica - we were astounded to find breathtaking beaches with no one there! We hope to be lucky enough to visit again someday and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Harmony Villa to anyone considering a trip to Dominica!

Harmony Villa is a very nice place, which is as beautiful as her owner Carla. Staying there even for one night makes you feel like you are at home with old friends. Carla is a good cook and her ginger tea is great! I was really happy to meet her and her beauty and kindness was like a gift. La maison de Carla lui ressemble, elle est belle, harmonieuse et lumineuse. Une très belle rencontre et un endroit cosy et confortable pour se reposer après 6 heures de marche sur les chemins de la Dominique.

Several years ago we [4 couples] spent at week here.The house is magnificent.Dinners nightly on porch, big windows open all the time without screens, hummingbirds in the yard, fresh tropical flowers in house and gardens,beautifully appointed house in a rainforest. We would spend the day exploring the island; parrot sanctuary,hidden beautiful waterfalls, hiking trails,snorkling,canoe trips, whale watching,and return home late in the day to a great prepared dinner on the veranda,followed by french wine and cuban cigars. Not for everybody, but heaven for us

What To Write? I was there with a partner whom I adore so 90% of my expectations were already met. Having said that I was very pleased with my whole experience while I was staying at Harmony Villa. Carla, a charming woman the owner, was there to meet and greet, so the transition to Island Living was painless. The home is large with three separate large bedrooms, 3½ baths, a huge Veranda, large kitchen, living area and more. The whole home is very tasteful decorated in a cool Island style. The home is extremely well appointed with enough Towels, plates, silver, glassware and more... The Home is centrally located, although Roseau (the capital) is only about 25 minutes away. the location is perfect for Dominica exploring. I would recommend Harmony to everyone.
