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.
