This is a beautiful cottage with a spectacular ocean view and all modern convenience including air-conditioning and a dishwasher. Also, being timber and with plenty of opening windows, it is a cool, traditional Caribbean home. It is only a 3 minute walk down the hill is the small village of Toucari with its friendly local community, a lovely small beach, a couple of bars and Derrick’s fabulous beach bar and restaurant Keepin’ it Real. The bay has a great reef for snorkelling and paddle-boards for exploring. We are just 10 minutes from two of the island’s great treasures, Fort Shirley and Indian River. The town of Portsmouth with shops, restaurants, the vibrant fresh-fruit, vegetable and fish market and much more is just 3 miles away.
Since the passage of hurricane Maria in 2017 our services and amenities have slowly been restored. Please contact me for the up to date situation as it is changing all the time.
Coconut Cottage may just be the prettiest house in Dominica and the breath-taking views from the spacious outside deck will capture your heart. Built in 2013 by local craftsmen from the village of Toucari, the structure is all timber with cool tiled floors and large windows. You will feel like you have stepped into a real Caribbean home when you enter this airy, sunlight-filled cottage.
Coconut Cottage is the perfect place for discovering the beauty and wonders of this unspoilt nature island. As well as the village of Toucari with its bay and beach, you have two trails to little-known waterfalls within 5 minutes and several other exciting adventures a short drive away. You also have our property manager as your neighbour with his experience of the local area and his own boat to give you a different view of the bay and the coast.
