Overview

About the property

One of two new apartments situated at Hillside House, Mero, Dominica, W.I.

HURRICANE MARIA 18th SEPTEMBER 2017.

Update as of our recent visit, 5th February 2018.

The house was not damaged by the storm but there is currently no mains electricity or Wi-Fi. The pool is also not functional due to the pump not being powered. There is, however, solar heated water.

We have left solar lights in the apartment.

We stayed for two weeks without power and did not find it to be too much of an inconvenience. We coped well without a fridge and the solar lights were perfectly acceptable. We took a travel size solar panel and power packs to charge phones etc.

We generally had phone signal at the house. There are places in the city of Roseau where you can access the internet; the phone shops and various hotels/restaurants etc.

As we currently have no housekeeper, we have decided, rather than refusing bookings, we would market the apartments at a reduced rate and visitors must provide their own bedding and towels and will be responsible for purchasing their own gas for cooking (gas bottles are provided for refilling).

Also you would be expected to leave the place clean and tidy for the next guests.

A beautiful boutique studio apartment furnished with magnificent antique French bedroom furniture, Victorian sofa and chaise longue, a stunning Venetian mirror and much more. Also present is a rare antique French folding bed contained in an oak cabinet - ideal for the smaller guest or adventurous child!

It has a well equipped kitchen and modern tiled bathroom with shower, basin and WC. Private entrance and balcony with Caribbean sea views..

A ten minute stroll (or 5 minute brisk walk!) to Mero beach, widely considered to be the best on the island. Well situated on the West Coast of the wonderful Nature Island of Dominica.

Hillside House & Apartments was completed in December 2016 and provides truly unique accomodation in Dominica. It is a three storey building with the two apartments on the ground floor and main house with pool above.

There is a pool deck on the middle floor with seating area and WIFI.

This is for the use of all residents.

A washing machine is also available .

Both apartments are listed and available for rental. Room for additional guests if required.

All rooms have insect screens to prevent mosquitos and we also provide mosquito nets over the beds for extra protection. Due to the hillside location we benefit from a nice breeze so air conditioning is not necessary but fans are provided.

About Adam & Clare Partridge

We are the Partridge family. Adam, Clare and our two boys Ridley and Felix. We visited Dominica first in 1998 whilst working on the cruise ships and fell in love with the island and its people. We vowed to build a house there one day and have finally achieved our dream. We now look forward to sharing this beautiful island with you.

Back in England, Adam has his own auction business and Clare is a Zumba instructor.

We have a family antiques auction business in the UK Clare is also a Zumba instructor. The whole family is cricket mad and Adam is a qualified youth cricket coach.

Adam & Clare Partridge purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Adam & Clare Partridge chose Mero

We believe this is a unique property on the island due to the quiet, yet convenient location. The wonderful sea views. The antique furnishings sourced from around the world to create an individual atmosphere. The proximity to Dominica's best beach at Mero and accessibility to explore the rest of this breathtaking and exciting island.

You only have to look at other rentals available to see that Hillside House & Apartments are high calibre!

Wherever you choose to go in Dominica, you will often feel as though you are the first to discover it due to the absence of mass tourism. Some places may be difficult to get to, but the path to paradise is never easy! Unleash your adventurous side and you will be greatly rewarded.

All areas of the island are accessible from the apartment and tours can be arranged with knowledgeable local guides to anywhere you may choose to discover.

Dominica at its finest

  • 5 of 5

Where do i begin, i love everything about this house. I prefer to stay away from the hustle and bustle and this location was perfect.. Definitely away from it all but still close enough to restaurants, gas station and mero beach. About 25 minutes into town and the drive is fairly simple. The owners of this luxurious home , clare and adam and their two children are the most amazing people ever. If you get the privelage to meet them that's a bonus by itself. The french decor had such a luxurious feel. The room/ living area was alot larger than i expected which was great. The lounge pool area was incredible. Pool was so clean and inviting, perfect temperature. I spent much time out there. The view and landscaping around pool was so exotic and lush. I had everything i needed from fresh linens, towels and kitchen appliances. I was able to cook meals with no problem and everything i needed was in stock. Its perfect for two or traveling solo. I would highly recommend this area in this big beautiful house to anyone. Its very private, downstairs and quiet. Doesnt even really feel like it's connected to the house. It exceeded my expectations and will most definitely book here again. It doesnt get much better than this its a perfect choice. Its complete dominica nature at your fingertips. Incredible value and an incredible stay.

very nice, clean and quiet apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice apartment in the village of Mero. The beach / village / small restaurants can easily be reached by foot. Perfect for 2 persons, well equipped kitchen, very clean, apparently everything very recently built and in perfect condition. Nice pool with chillout area.

Helpful neighbour to give an orientation of the village, the surroundings and help with any issues that might occur.

We had a wonderful time!
