A little bit more about us

Behind the Tete Canal Cottages project, there are two people… We are Christophe and Karine, both nature lovers seduced by Dominica after a trip to the island which transformed our way of viewing our everyday life.

It is near the village of La Plaine that we moved in 2015, on a virgin land crossed by the Wayaneri river. Now living in total ecological autonomy, we are proud to welcome you in our ecolodges and to share with you our lifestyle.

This place will suit people who love nature and sensitive architecture using natural materials (the pictures do not do it justice!). Karine and Christophe were wonderful hosts. We loved our stay at Tete Canal, with stunning wildlife, good food and a perfect to unwind. We hope to come back!A couple of tips:- Make sure you have a copy of Karine's directions, especially if arriving at dusk or night! The Airbnb is up a track around 1km from the road, so you want a 4WD, and to make sure you're on the correct road!- When visiting Dominica, do book a local guide for long hikes. They explain so much about the flora and fauna, help maintain paths and remove litter. Invest in the biodiversity and keep it special - don't be obnoxious and rude!- The breakfast and dinners are delicious, but consider bringing some food with you. It is quite hard to source in La Plaine (we bought delicious lettuce from a man called Elias who lives near Sari-Sari Falls, and from Ron's Farmacy near Pont Casse).

Karine et Christophe sont des hôtes d’une gentillesse incroyable.Leur accueil est chaleureux et on se sent vite chez soi !Ils prennent le temps de donner des conseils ou informations si on a besoin.Ils ont construit un lieu idyllique, unique, c’est une vraie expérience d’avoir la chance d’y passer un moment.La Cabane a tout ce qu’il faut comme équipement…le bruit de la rivière c’est très apaisant.La douche extérieure est parfaite et c’est très plaisant de l’utiliser.Si vous commander de la nourriture avec eux c’est très bon.Nous avons aussi aimé le petit resto tout simple Lucy’s Roadside bar and grill situé à 10 minutes sur la route à Morne Jaune pour un lunch avec une belle vue !Je vous recommande vivement cet hébergement vous ne serez pas déçu et voudrez y rester plus longtemps! Merci pour tout !
