David and Tom provide the highest level of quality hospitality and customer service - and also make for great company during the daily breakfast and happy hour. Spacious (and spotless) accommodations, friendly guests, a great heated pool and...

Great location with easy access to everything, large, clean rooms, beautiful foliage around the heated pool and outside court, and off street parking. David and Tom are really great hosts and very accommodating. Easy access to everything. We will stay there again on our next visit to Fort Lauderdale..

My friends and I stayed here to celebrate my birthday. We stumbled upon it by fluke and it was by far the best place EVER! David and Tommy went above and beyond the normal hospitality you'd expect at a large resort, you know the type that have all those membership tiers, here you are ALL treated like a "Platinum" member....

After mourning the closing of The Coconut Cove a couple years back I was excited to learn that the owner David had opened a new guesthouse. Checking in felt like a family reunion. David and Tom’s (Hazel) warmth and graciousness made me feel instantly at home. Newly opened they were putting in the finishing touches to turn this 70’s motor...
