A BRAND-NEW CARIBBEAN STYLED TIMBER COTTAGE WITH A MILLION-DOLLAR OCEAN VIEW

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Les Saintes - Coconut Cottage

A Beautiful 2-bedroom Caribbean Home With A Large West-facing Verandah

Coconut Cottage may just be the prettiest house in Dominica.

Situated just 3 miles north of Portsmouth, this traditionally styled cottage nestles on the hillside right in the centre of Toucari Bay with a breathtaking view of the sparkling Caribbean Sea and the lush mountains. Built in 2013 by local craftsmen from the village of Toucari, the structure is all timber with cool tiled floors. 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. Situated just a few minutes’ walk from the village and bay, Coconut Cottage has that million-dollar Caribbean view that completes any tropical vacation.

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, 2 sun-loungers and a dining table & chairs.

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

A wonderful master bedroom with a craftsman-made queen size bed made up with luxury cotton (400 thread count) 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.

A beautiful bathroom with huge enclosed shower

Gardens with barbecue area, table and seating.

Utility room with washing machine.

On-demand hot water and socket outlets for 220v and 110v.

Parking for 2 cars.

We are husband and wife, Andrew and Kate, from England. We both grew up in the north, worked, travelled and met in the UK military. We married 20 years ago and spent 10 years with serious jobs in London, then decided to change our lives. We bought a chalet in France and hosted a full-service ski lodge for 6 years. In 2008 we were looking for our next great adventure and came to Dominica. We now split our time between Toucari and our family back in UK.

Andrew and Kate Thorley purchased this cottage in 2013

We came to Dominica for 6 weeks in 2008 and toured every corner of the island. Toucari is where we decided to look for property. The descriptions we use on this website say it all. So with a place to live for ourselves, we set to building the prettiest rental cottage the island has ever had. Designed to look and feel traditionally Caribbean, but with the size and conveniences of a modern home. This is our labour of love. We have lived in the cottage for a few months ourselves and cannot think of another place in the world we would rather be.

Choices of accommodation in Dominica are limited. Some are beautiful but highly priced lodges, some are tired, budget-priced cottages. Many are concrete built villas the like you would see in Florida or southern France.

Coconut Cottage is one of a few that try to break this pattern. Come to a genuine Caribbean village, live for a while in a timber house surrounded by nature. Just sit on the verandah in the fresh Caribbean breeze and watch the sailboats and cruise ships pass by, the fishermen struggle with their catch, the hummingbirds in the tree right by you, the magnificent frigate bird soaring overhead or the zandoli tree lizard that is perched looking straight back at you.

BEAUTIFUL!

  • Review Submitted: 10-Apr-2014
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2014
We arrived with high expectations of the island and property and were not disappointed!
The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. After 2 weeks, I really felt it was my home and was ever so sad to leave. You can watch the fishing and diving boats go out while eating breakfast and see beautiful sunsets in the evening on the deck. The only challenge of the island is the roads and driving but we got pretty good at that by the end. There is a ton to do on this island if you like hiking and snorkeling/diving. I would definitely go back or will recommend the cottage to my friends and family. Thanks to Andrew and Kate!

Owner's Response: Wow, thank you Holly and Will for this great review. We have been nervously awaiting the first guest to write something and we couldn't be more happy to see how much you enjoyed your stay. Suddenly all the hard work seems worthwhile. Andrew and Kate.
