You would NEVER guess it from driving by, but this place is quite a find! On a quiet street along older, small motels, Coconut Grove is completely hidden from the world behind bamboo fencing and lush landscaping. Indoor, the units are clean and well-kept with casual "Tommy Bahama"-style furnishings. VERY comfortable bed! But the best part is the very private large, island-themed courtyard! Nice pool, fantastic large Tiki bar with flat screen TV, stainless outdoor kitchen with grill and smoker, plenty of lounge chairs/umbrellas in white sand areas, waterfall, and covered outdoor dining for friends and family to enjoy. Unusual but nice that there is no "front office" on-site, which really makes it a tropical home away from home. Short walk away from one of the most beautiful sugar sand beaches you will find on Florida's Gulf coast. Highly recommend if you want a QUIET, relaxing vacation. Only 8 units, so no crowds to deal with. Close to plenty of beach restaurants and bars with live music. No resort or parking fees and free laundry on site. Only negatives: (1) Small bathrooms which need updating, especially the bathtub/shower. (2) Very limited counters with no cabinets in the kitchenette of the 1-bedroom unit we were in. The other 1-BR had cabinets though. Not an issue if you aren't staying for long or don't plan to cook much. (3) Sofa bed mattress is awful! (4) Noisy A/C. Note: The large 3-Bedroom unit upstairs is really nice.
