“Kay and the Coconut Cottage Made Our Vacation Great!”
Reviewed 31 July 2017 for a stay in May 2017

If you're looking for a perfect four-star all-inclusive resort experience, this is not for you. If, however, you are looking to embrace and experience all that Placencia has to offer to the fullest and experience a tranquil simple escape from the hustle and bustle of every day life, this is hands down the place to do it.

The Location of the Coconut Cottage is one of the most idyllic places we have been in our entire life. Words cannot even begin to explain just how captivating and inspiring this place is. Every morning we delighted in the pristine white sandy beaches, deep, clear, turquoise ocean, and the cool sea breeze rustling through the palms. This is nothing less than a slice of Heaven on Earth. Additionally, it is also very conveniently/centrally located. Everything you need or want is a short walk away--from Dawn's Cafe to John the Baker Man (who has excellent pastries fresh baked every day).

But, beyond the scenery and the convenience, what makes the Coconut Cottage truly great is Kay, the landlady. From the moment we arrived, she was incredibly kind and made us feel immediately welcome. She advised us on all of the best restaurants and nearby snorkeling spots and gave us free use of her kayaks. Following her advice, we were able to easily kayak from the cottage out to Placencia Caye, dock on some mangroves, and go snorkeling. The view of the coral and the local sea life was unbelievable. This is just one of many examples of how Kay's generosity and next-level eagerness to help made our vacation so much more memorable than we ever imagined. I can honestly say that our vacation wouldn't have been nearly as enjoyable if we had stayed anywhere else.

“Great location”
Reviewed 21 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Kay was an excellent host. We had a laid back vacation with kayaking, walking the beaches and just floating. The cottage is just steps from the ocean with a great location to the village. Beach bars/restaurants just down the beach.

Ms Kay is the best and most generous landlord. She is so accommodating, with offers to wash our clothes if needed, sharing her kayak and her cats!! Great location and right on the beach. Easy access to everywhere!
We made a new friend!
Thanks so much Kay

Kay's place was great. The view of the ocean just steps from the cabin was beautiful and convenient to go for swim or kayak any time. Kay was great to deal with as she lives next door and gave us lots of information on where to eat, places to see etc. She even did a load of laundry for us.
