Overview

About the property

Just a few minutes' walk to the village, the beach, a bar and restaurant

Coconut Cottage suffered significant, but not excessive, damage in Hurricane Maria. We will be rebuilding and repairing during the winter and expect to be offering vacations from spring 2018. Please drop me an enquiry if you would like to find out how we are progressing.

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. Only a 3 minute walk down the hill is the small village community of Toucari. The 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.

Coconut Cottage may just be the prettiest house in Dominica and the breath-taking views from the spacious outside deck that 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.

Welcome to Coconut Cottage, a traditionally designed Caribbean home with modern convenience and an indisputable feeling of being somewhere really special.

Coconut Cottage includes:

A large open verandah with spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea, chaise longue, dining table & chairs.

A comfortable living room with reclining armchairs, sofa, dining suite, TV, Wi-Fi and a gorgeous view of the sea.

An air-conditioned master bedroom with a craftsman-made queen size bed made up with luxury cotton sheets and views of the sea.

A spacious second bedroom with twin beds.

A hand built fully-equipped kitchen (including dishwasher) with local hardwood counter tops and on-demand hot water.

A beautiful bathroom with huge enclosed hot-water shower

Utility room with washing machine, iron and ironing board

Socket outlets for 220v and 110v.

So you may be tempted to sit on the deck all day and enjoy the beautiful view, watch the hummingbirds hover from flower to flower or check the sky for the broad-winged hawk or frigate bird. But we are surrounded by experiences and adventures. Within walking distance you can swim, snorkel, paddle-board, kayak, drink with the locals or eat lovely food on the beach. Our friend and neighbour will take you out for a leisurely boat trip to see the bat cave and snorkel on the WWI sunken wreck or to go fishing. He will also take you the 5 minute drive to one of two trails to two very different hidden waterfalls. Within a ten minute drive you can be at Cold Soufriere, a small area of bubbling mud in the centre of our drive-through volcano. Also just a ten minute drive is Cabrits National Park with Fort Shirley and some lovely forest walks to the ruins of a great British garrison, crumbling defenses with cannons still in place. And there is another great experience just 10 minutes away - the Indian River where you will be rowed up the mangrove edged river as Jonny Depp was in Pirates of the Caribbean. The list goes on, beach restaurants in Lagon, the islands biggest beach at Purple Turtle, bars, restaurants, the open fruit and veg market, massive tuna, marlin and mahi-mahi available straight from the fishing boat - all of this within a 15 minute drive or less.
