Crescent Moon Cabins is a collection of four rustic wooden cottages perched on a hillside in the lush rainforest of Dominica. It’s a place to reconnect with nature, enjoy breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea and the mountains, and indulge in farm-to-table cuisine from the organic garden. The cabins are located on a 10-acre property in the south-west of Dominica, near the village of Roseau. The island is known as the “Nature Island” of the Caribbean, with volcanic peaks, waterfalls, hot springs, rivers and rainforest. The cabins are surrounded by tropical plants and flowers, and have panoramic views of the sea and the Morne Trois Pitons National Park. The cabins are simple but comfortable, with wooden floors, walls and furniture, colourful fabrics and local art. Each cabin has a spacious veranda with hammocks, chairs and a dining table, where you can relax and enjoy the views. The cabins have no electricity or running water, but they have solar-powered lights, candles, rainwater showers and composting toilets. The main house has a communal lounge, library, games room and dining area, where you can mingle with other guests and the friendly hosts.
Cresent Moon Cabins is an eco-friendly retreat that aims to minimise its impact on the environment and support the local community. The cabins are built from locally sourced wood and bamboo, and use renewable energy sources such as solar panels and biogas. The organic garden provides most of the food for the guests and the hosts, and the leftovers are fed to the chickens and pigs. The water comes from a natural spring and is filtered for drinking. The hosts also organise environmental education programs for local schools and communities.
Some of the specific measures that Cresent Moon Cabins takes to be sustainable are:
Using solar-powered lights and candles instead of electricity
Using rainwater showers and composting toilets instead of running water and sewage systems
Using biodegradable soap and shampoo instead of chemical products
