This is a beautiful cottage with a spectacular ocean view and also, being timber and with plenty of opening windows, it is a cool, traditional Caribbean home. Only a few minutes walk down the hill is a lovely small beach, a couple of beach bars and restaurants, and a friendly local community.
The town of Portsmouth with shops, restaurants and much more is just 3 miles away.

The space
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.

It is only a few minutes 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.

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.

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

Location

Portsmouth, Saint John Parish, Dominica

Coconut Cottage sits on the edge of the village of Toucari - a small fishing and farming village full of friendly local people. This is the real Caribbean and you are just 200 yards from a bar, a beach and snorkeling the abundant life on Toucari reef. Take a boat trip along the coast, paddle board the bay or dine on fresh lobster at a beach bar.

For a short while in late 2018 and early 2019 our neighbour had a loud and unpleasant daughter-in-law staying - you may have seen some reviews referring to her shouting - well I am very pleased to say that she has returned to Guadeloupe permanently and peace has returned to our area.

You are also only 3 miles from Dominica's second town, Portsmouth, with it's shops, grocery stores and supermarket - plus 2 of the islands highlight sites - Cabrits National Park and Indian River.

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.
