“More like being an independent house guest in a beautiful unspoilt island with gorgeous beaches and scenery”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Dominica is unique and as yet unspoilt. It is a beautiful island with some amazing sights including red Rock, Emerald Pool and of course Batibou beach (probably the nicest beach we have ever visited).

Rainbow was a perfect "get away from tourism" place to stay. We had the Atlantic literally right outside our balcony.

Molly was THE MOST AMAZING hostess. She went out of her way to share tips and suggestions on what we might enjoy whilst we stayed with her. Nothing seemed too much trouble for her. She even pretended to need to go to Roseau to make sure we navigated the bus system successfully! (And she lent us her washing machine for no extra charge!)

She made us very welcome and I would very much recommend her and Rainbow.

Thank you Anne for the wonderful review. What I did was very natural, it was no extra effort. I enjoy making my guests feel welcome and happy especially the kids. I love showing off my island and my village.As you said it is actually like a house and that's how I wanted it to be much different from a hotel room or a guest room.
I will always remember you and your family and thanks for the pictures.
Again I thank you for choosing to stay at Rainbow Apts.
Molly.

“Molly's Place is "Magnifique."”
Reviewed 4 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

If you are into a fast pace, enormous buffets, and drinks with umbrellas, this is not the place for you. But if you enjoy sea views like no other, nature on parade, and generous warm people, Calibishie is a splendid choice, and Molly's place is the icing on the cake.

We stayed for six nights in the upstairs apartment that has two rooms with king size beds. It was me and my two grown sons, and we had plenty of room. The apartment comes complete with a kitchen and living room. So you can cook in your apartment if you are so inclined.

Molly had her friend Olivier pick us up at the airport for a reasonable fee. Oliver also acted as tour guide on several occasions during our stay. He was very accommodating and a big help during our stay.

Molly is a wonderful hostess full of colorful knowledge of the area and the island. We visited several close by beaches where we were the only people on the beach. There are also waterfalls and rivers close by that Molly can arrange for you to visit.

I recommend you go see Molly's cousin Toga at Toga's which is just down the road. He will make you a fine local rum drink and play you some good Caribbean music. Toga was very kind to us and you should definitely stop in at least once when you visit Calibishie.

On our last day Molly arranged for her friend Suzette to cook breakfast in our apartment. Suzette is a wonderful cook and works down the street at a little cafe named The Rock Site. We ate Suzette's cooking on several occasions and I highly recommend it. She is a maestro with chicken.

Calibishie is a wonderful place to visit and Molly is a splendid hostess. I can't wait to go back soon. Once there, Molly can help you with anything you need. I just hope I can always get a room at the Rainbow Beach Apartments.

Thanks for the wonderful review. I do enjoy making my guests feel welcome and comfortable. My village is very small therefore knowing everybody in the village makes it very easy to have my guests mingle with the villagers, know the place, where to eat, socialize, and assist with transportation and guides as needed.
It gives me pleasure to advise on different places and sites that the guests would like to visit and listen to their experiences after they return.
I really did enjoy having you and your boys stay here with us at Rainbow Beach Apt. and looking forward to have you and your wife visit next time in the future as promised.
Molly.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 27 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We had a perfect 10 day stay at Rainbow Beach Apartments. The rooms are very clean and they have everything you need to feel comfortable and ready to relax. Right on the beach front the views are incredible. Located in the lovely and friendly Calibishie village where you can find local coffee, chocolate, cake, bread, and buy fish, avocados, plantains directly from the local fisherman and backyard growers, which is lovely. The owner of Rainbow Beach Apartments is a fantastic person who grew up in the village and knows everything you want to know. She will go out of her way to make you have a happy stay. We often had coffee together in the morning which we thoroughly enjoyed. If you are staying in Dominica no matter where you stay you will need a car or to use the local buses to go around. But near to Rainbow Beach Apartments there is the most beautiful beach called Batibou Beach which we walked to and from. For those who like walking and hiking it's very easy. We highly recommend the Rainbow Restaurant next door to the Rainbow Beach Apartments and the well known local guide Nigel, the happiest guide we ever had.
