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 nice choice for guests hoping for something to do in the evening.

Located in the heart of Placencia, Coconut Cottage is a great choice for travelers who are thinking about staying 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. Visitors who are trying to avoid big, commercial resorts will relish the simple ambiance at this location. With respect to overall quality, we've given these cottages a rating of 2 stars.
