Best Inn and town in Dominica
A perfect apartment with everything you need. A short walk to a sandy beach, shops, restaurants and bars. Maggie is a lovely, accomodating and kind host, and her fresh breakfasts are absolutely delicious. I highly recommend a visit to Calibishie and stay at this Inn! I came back twice during my hike across Dominica

6/10 Good

Breakfast was good. The room was located close to the airport and sites like the red rocks and a chocolate factory were near. It seems difficult to get to without a rental car. We didn't like that there was an electrical problem but I imagine it will be fixed soon.

Wonderful hospitality with a view!
Jacoway Inn was a cozy spot to spend a final night closer to the airport, but it would have been great to chill for longer in picturesque Calibishie. The unit is walkable to restaurants, bars, and beaches in town with a pretty view over the gardens towards the water. Carol Ann's hospitality and tasty breakfast made me feel like a long lost family member rather than a random traveler, and she helped set up an airport transfer. Very pleasant stay!

Were in the second floor room. Beautiful views from the balcony. Lovely gardens. Great breakfasts every morning in an open air gazebo.

First class customer service
Carol was a fabulous host - she completely looked after my needs from start to finish. The grounds have gorgeous gardens that are really well kept and the location is ideal for getting around easily by car, bus or on foot.

Carol Ann has an amazing place and location. We stayed in Grace’s Cottage and loved it. Was a little old house built over 100 year ago, Carol had found it and with the help of some very hard working locals Carol moved it to her property. Once there she worked very hard at restoring the old house and building a kitchen and bathroom additions on to the house. They did an incredible job and the house looks amazing. We looked forward to waking up each day to hear the birds chirping, having coffee at our little bistro table saying good morning to Waggs, Carols little pooch, carol and Nicky worked very hard at preparing a breakfast fit for a king, was so delicious and filling it would last you almost all day. Carol has a very unique personality, is very kind, generous with her time and very helpful with introducing us to Nigel George, a very good and informative guide of Dominica, he has endless amounts of knowledge of the island, the history and a very good guide for hiking many of Dominica’s nature trails. Carol also introduced us to a few local restaurants in Calibishe that have great food and service. My wife and I would highly recommend staying with Carol Ann any time your in Dominica....you will be pleasantly surprised and well looked after while staying there. One thing to add, if your walking to Jacoway its a bit of a hike up a steep hill to get to Carols, we’ve put in a request to put a buzzer at the bottom of the hill so we can get a shuttle ride up to Jacoway haha.

Amazing bed and breakfast full of charm
The Jacoway Inn is simply incredible. We stayed in the lover's cottage which was an original house refitted for guests that had absolutely everything we needed and was also so incredibly well decorated and adorable, beautiful and cozy! Also the hosts were super helpful and welcoming, offered great local tips, and made amazing, delicious breakfasts (the best coconut cake I've ever had!). It was one of our most favorite places we've ever stayed and we highly recommend!

Wonderful surprise.
Nothing to say but nice things. First of all from the airport to the hotel, the people here in this tiny country are so friendly. The airport is very close which is definitely a plus. The host is wonderful and is an awesome cook. The room feels like home away from home. I will stay here in the future. Try it out, you will not be disappointed.

Cute cottage with all the mod cons.
Gorgeous little, old, authentic cottage with all the modern luxuries. Really amazing and a lovely treat. So relaxing. Carol Ann was so welcoming and bubbly. The kitchen is perfect for cooking your own meal but also location is close to Calibishie restaurants. We had a great stay and would recommend this place for sure.

Beatiful getaway meets western expectations
What tremendous personalized service at such a beautiful. quiet, peaceful place! I only stayed here on the last night on the island as a tactical move to position myself close to the airport for the next morning. I was so impressed, that I am committed to returning to the island and make Jacoway my home base. The unit was so cute with views of rolling green hills giving way to the ocean and horizon. The breakfast was amazing. The owners, Canadian-raised Carol Ann and native Dominican, Niki served an American style breakfast sourced from their Dominica garden. I ate outside with a view of the garden which supplied my food. Breakfast started with a generous food dish. Niki delivered some chicken and bread for me for dinner. Carol Ann even offered to give me a ride to the airport in the morning, a service that is way above and beyond what you would expect from a hotel or bnb. I accepted this offer but insisted she be paid the equivalent of a taxi charge. Carol Ann is a wealth of local information. If you want to see all the beauty and sights of Dominica, your first step ought to be to inquire about availability here. Stay here and ask Carol Ann anything you want to know about the island. She will send you off to the best places. I definitely plan to return here.
