Crescent Moon Cabins

Crescent Moon Cabins is an eco-sensitive establishment that was built using local hand-harvested materials within previously landscaped areas. Run by a couple from Pennsylvania, the cabins at Crescent Moon merge the natural beauty of the Dominican with the comforts of home.

If you can't wait to find your feet in the sand, Crescent Moon should be an excellent fit, as there at least a few beaches close by. Mahaut South Beach and Donkey Beach are the closest options, and even beyond those two, you still won't find a shortage of choices.

Located in the heart of the island of Dominica, 1.8 miles east of Mahaut, Crescent Moon Cabins welcomes visitors interested in staying on this beautiful island. If you're curious, the center of Roseau is four miles (six and a half kilometers) to the south.


Crescent Moon Cabins

The cabins are designed to take full advantage of the panoramic views of the mountains and sea. Building construction incorporates local wood which seamlessly blends into the forest. The grounds are lush with tropical flower and fruit plants.

Mango, Pawpaw, Almond trees as well as Banana and Breadfruit add a charming touch to this romantic setting. Stone foot paths take you into the forest or down by the river where you can take a cool bath, observe the many species of birds that come to visit, or just relax and read a book. A locally handcrafted bed enlivens the cabin. Sights of the sea can be had from this vantage point or from the ten foot verandah. Each cabin has a spacious private bathroom and shower.

With respect to overall quality, we've rated this lodge a two and a half star rating.
