I have lived in Placencia since 1985, operating Coconut Cottage since 1994. The original cottage was built in 1994 to accommodate my late husbands fly fishing clients. Joel was a world renowned fly-fishing guide who died in 1996.
The original Coconut Cottage left with Hurricane Iris in October of 2001. The new cottages were rebuilt and I reopened for business in March 2002. There is just one for rent as I live in the other with my 3 cats, Amelia Peabody, Jr, her sister Fifi, and her son Baby Beluga.
Although there have been many changes in Placencia over the years I am feel that it is my home and am rooted here and closely connected to my Belizean family, the Westbys.
Living on the premises creates a safe environment for my guests.
I invite you to come visit and enjoy beautiful Placencia Village.

The cottage itself is basic but very pretty with mahogany wood and lots of windows. There are two double beds which are very… See more
