Coconut Cottage

Coconut Cottage opened in 1995 by Joel Westby, a fly-fishing legend, as a retreat for two of Westby's fishermen. After Westby's death one year later, his wife Kay took over the cottage and now runs a quaint little lodge that is the perfect beach escape for a couples getaway or small family vacation.

Coconut Cottage can also be a good choice for those looking for some after hours fun.
