Lily Cottage Porch

Welcome to Lily Cottage, our newest addition to the Calabash Cottages group. Lily Cottage has been lovingly and painstakingly restored over two slow years after the 2017 hurricanes. Let’s cut to what you want to know: It does have a lovely view and a private deck with a spa over looking Coral Bay and out to sea. The cottage consists of two small buildings. The living area is separated from the bedroom by decks and an outdoor shower. It is located on the outskirts of Coral Bay with numerous shops and restaurants. Access is via paved road and you are a short drive from the North Shore beaches, the East End beaches as well as Salt Pond Bay on the South Side. If you are planning a day on the water there are many boating options within a five minute drive.

The time we took to restore the cottage meant we had lot’s of fun with it. It’s a small cottage so everything needed to be exactly the right size for the space. After an exhausting search for ready made furniture we chose to use a company we have worked with several times in Belize to hand craft many of the furnishings to our specifications. Thanks to Etsy we were able to get the balance of the furnishings from American craftspeople. I then had a great time indulging my eclectic taste by adding handmade items from Haiti, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Israel, Germany, Russia, Poland, Morocco, Thailand and even Tunisia for the decor.

We redesigned the “cozy” kitchen with custom made wood cabinets to make maximum use of the space. Although there are several restaurants within a mile of Lily Cottage you may find the view nicest on the cottage porch. The cupboards are very well stocked with pots, pans, utensils and dish ware. We have all standard amenities such as a 4 burner stove with oven, coffeemaker, toaster oven, coffee grinder and microwave. We do not have a dishwasher.

Please feel fee to ask us about any kitchen items that are on your “must have” list and we will do our best to take sure it is available for you. I do love to cook and I have outfitted the kitchen with any supplies I would like to have on hand.

We provide a fresh sponge and paper towels but not food items.
We do meet new guests at the dock and will stop at a grocery store on the way to give you a chance to stock up for the week but you will also find a grocery a half mile away.

Outdoor Shower

The toilet area includes a pocket privacy door from the living room as well as a closet with a safe for valuables. A louvered door opens to the outdoor sink and shower completely
private).

The shower deck connects to the stand alone bedroom. It is also set up with low key rope lighting keep our guests safe at night.

We provide to towels, linens, beach towels and robes for your use.

Bathroom and Shower

The sleeping quarters are under a separate roof connected by the deck to the living quarters. Many of our guests prefer to drift off to the sound of the frogs and crickets but if that’s not you we do have an air conditioner that cools the room down in minutes. You are steps away from the deck facing the sea- a great place to catch morning sunrise. Another deck (between the two buildings) is also just steps away from the bathroom. Our furniture builders in Belize crafted the furnishings for maximum storage in minimal space. The bedroom area is a delightful refuge. We especially love the paintings over the bed by well known artist on St John, Aimee Trayser. If you enjoy her work as much as we do you can see more of it at: https://www.aimeetrayser.net
