Cottage overview - owner's description
The small village of Toucari is tucked away in the north-west corner of the tropical island of Dominica.
Coconut Cottage is the perfect place for discovering the beauty and wonders of this unspoilt nature island. Situated on the hillside 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.
This traditionally styled cottage is situated on the hillside right in the centre of Toucari Bay with a breathtaking view of the sparkling Caribbean Sea and the lush mountains. Built in 2013 by local craftsmen from the village of Toucari, the structure is all timber with cool tiled floors. You will feel like you have stepped into a real Caribbean home when you enter this airy, sunlight-filled cottage.
Described by the British Admiralty for hundreds of years as the most northerly safe anchorage on Dominica, Toucari Bay is a perfect little Caribbean cove. From the sea there is a small beach and then the coconut palm lined coast road. Behind the road are the 40 or so dwellings of the village and right on the road are the 3 or 4 brightly painted 'Rum Shops'. These act as both convenience stores for life's essentials, bars serving local rums and the national beer - Kubuli - and, at the weekend, the village focus for music and food.
Here is where you can meet the real people of Dominica, hang out like a local and try some barbeque fish right on the beach.

Definitely a great place to recommend.
Spacious lodge with a nice deck overlooking Toucari Bay.
Communication with Andrew was quick and informative, our on site contact Caso was freindly and helpful.
Altogether great package, we will come back for sure.
We enjoyed our stay very much. The cottage was nice and clean with a spectacular view.
The communication with the owner worked very well and the housekeeper Caso was there for us whenever we needed him.
Our recent stay at Coconut Cottage was absolutely wonderful!!! The cottage itself is stunning, nicely decorated, very well-equipped, has a wonderful view over Toucari Bay and felt like a home away from home. Andrew and Kate were extremely friendly and very quick to respond to any questions and Caso, who lives next door, was also extremely helpful and readily available. Toucari Bay itself has a nice beach and some excellent snorkeling right from shore. We very much enjoyed eating dinner at the beachfront restaurant Keepin' it Real. The fresh fish and lobster were outstanding. We also enjoyed eating at Ray's Rotis and Madiba in nearby Portsmouth. Many nights we cooked our own meal and ate it on the wonderful deck overlooking the bay. We hope to be back again soon!
Ein wunderschönes Haus mit absolut traunhafter Sicht aufs Meer! Dem Eigentümer, resp. dem Nachbarn welcher zum Haus schaut ist es ein Anliegen, dass alles passt und der gast sich wohl fühlt. Er brachte uns sogar Mangos aus seinem Gaten vorbei. Seine ganz lieben Hunde haben meist vor unserem Hauseingang gelegen, kamen jedoch nie rein, und haben uns freudig wedelnd
begrüsst wenn wir nach Hause kamen. Das Haus ist gut ausgestattet und hat sogar eine Waschmaschine!
Wir haben unsern Aufenthalt wirklich genossen.
Coconut Cottage, located in Toucari, was a great location for exploring the northern section of Dominica. Unlike many places on Dominica, there was an easy place to park and access to the cottage. After staying for a month in the Canefield area on island, Toucari was a great 10 day end to our trip.
The owners were on island at the time and very accessible and friendly. The "key keeper" and his son were always available and just a holler away if we needed anything, (like when there was no water for a short time). The town of Portsmouth is an easy drive for grocery supplies and a good variety of restaurants, if you want a change from the fresh grilled lobster or fish from Keepin it Real.
The cottage was very comfortable and had fantastic sunset views being located just 3 turns up the hill from the beach. Toucari beach is one of the nicest and easily accessible beaches on the island. Keepin it Real rum shack, on the beach, became our favorite place to hang out on the beach. Derrick and his mother were absolutely great, making us feel like old friends! Be prepared to stay a while because they cook each dish individually, no mass orders here! Try the peanut punch, if it's not sold out, wow, that was good!
The only thing that would have been helpful for our 10 day stay would have been a microwave oven (for heating leftovers) and a toaster. Otherwise I would definitely recommend staying here. We enjoyed Toucari much more than staying in the southern part of the island. We felt comfortable!
