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 option for guests looking to go out after dinner.

Positioned in the heart of Placencia, Coconut Cottage offers a warm welcome to customers who want to stay in this part of Stann Creek District.


The rental cottage features two double beds and a fully stocked kitchen, with hammocks on the porch that offer a perfect place to relax and gaze at the Sea, which is just 20 feet away. The other cottage on the property is Kay's home where she lives with her three little cats that love to roam the grounds.

Coconut Cottage has just one unit. Accordingly, it's perfect for travelers who prefer a calm, quaint atmosphere. These cottages have been awarded a 2 star rating, when it comes to features on-site, amenities, and more.
