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 might be an excellent fit, since there at least a few beaches nearby. Mahaut South Beach and Donkey Beach are the closest, though you'll find even more beaches to choose from beyond those two.

Situated in the heart of the island of Dominica, 1.8 miles east of Mahaut, Crescent Moon Cabins offers a warm welcome to customers who are interested in basing their vacation on this beautiful island. It's 3.9 miles north of the center of Roseau.

Accommodations

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.

For its overall merit, we've awarded this lodge a rating of two and a half stars.
