About this listing
Coconut Cottage may 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.
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, 2 sun-loungers and a dining table & chairs.
A comfortable living room with reclining armchairs, sofa, dining suite, 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 sheets and views of the sea.

Coconut Cottage sits on the edge of the village of Toucari. This is the real Caribbean and you are just 200 yards from a bar, a beach and snorkeling the abundant life on Toucari reef. 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 strongly recommend that you rent a car for the duration of your vacation in Dominica - were ever you stay.

Lovely cottage with fantastic views, especially at sunset, over Tucari Bay. The cottage is exactly how the photos look, if not better! Andrew was very responsive and helpful with a couple of minor problems when we first got there.
The cottage was very beautiful with a great location to the supermarket and excellent snorkeling. The neighbors who watch over the house and property are very helpful and if you have time it is worth going out with their son on his boat to see a shipwreck and a cove. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area and excellent food nearby. You can't go wrong choosing this place for your stay!
Het huis zelf is prachtig, de ligging Toucari bay is prachtig. Tijdens je wandeling word je verblijdt met een keus aan vers fruit dat je wordt aangeboden door de lokale bevolking of dat je zelf langs de weg kan plukken.
Het contact met de eigenaars Andrew en Kate was heel goed, ze zijn berid (op afstand) alles voor je te doen en anders regelen ze dat met "Son" de buurman en tevens oppasser van het huis. Alhoewel Andrew waarschuwde voor muggen zijn we ze niet tegengekomen.
Het huis zelf is van alle comfort voorzien en heeft een geweldig uitzicht. We zijn helemaal uitgerust en zouden bij terugkomst in Dominica weer naar de Cocunutcottage in Toucari Bay gaan.
Simply perfect. It's hard to find words to desribe this wonderful location:
- the neighbours (from which you'll recieve the keys for the cottage on arrival) are very friendly and you feel at home from the beginning
- the cottage itself is even better than on the pictures
- theres a little folder with useful infos about the cottage and the surroundings (bars, restaurants, shops, etc)
- the people from the village are very friendly and we felt save all the time!
Thanks again for this highlight of our honeymoon!
Très belle maison que celle de Toucari Bay : nous avons été très bien accueillis par Son, le voisin qui s'est soucié régulièrement de notre séjour, dans les meilleures conditions. La position près de Portsmouth est très pratique. La maison est très bien équipée. Sans réserve.
I don't think airbnb's 5 stars are really enough for Andrew and Kate's cottage. The view is enough for 5 stars on its own. (I can't count the number of rainbows over the ocean we got to see.) And everything - from the on-demand hot water to the US and UK outlets was new and well thought out. Though exciting to get to the first time, the location is great: green and peaceful, while still convenient to Portsmouth's shops and restaurants. (The hosts have written a very handy guide to these.) We look forward to our next trip to this friendly, beautiful island and, hopefully, this house!
About the Host, Andrew
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.
