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...

Stayed for two nights while visiting family and friends in Fort Lauderdale. The guesthouse is newly acquired and does not even have the Coconut sign yet. No clue what the place looked like before it became the Big Coconut Guesthouse but new Ownership appears responsible for many of the fresh common area amenities including landscaping, perfectly maintained pool, patio area,...

This is my first visit to the Big Coconut. I had been a regular visitor to the late-lamented Coconut Cove. In three months , David has done wonders. Among familiar features: Tom Hazel here, tropical flora abundant, the parrots Peter and Peanut in residence, and the marvelous little dog Selena a constant delight. The pool is large, the clothing is...

Me and my boyfriend needed a place to spend sometime away for the weekend and decided to check this place out. It is in a good location for visitors who wants to be close to the bars in Wilton or not too far from the Beach. But it's not in a pretty part of town. In a dead end street...

This is my new go-to gay guesthouse. I've stayed at almost every gay guest house in the area. Thank goodness David purchased this, providing a great space. David along with Tom 'Hazel' are working hard to quickly convert this two floor 17 unit building into an oasis. A small forest of trees - along with a solid fence - are...

Team Dave and Tom are back in business formerly of Coconut Cove. Having been a guest of the cove, we were pleasantly surprised at how much already has gone into recreating an Oasis. Not located a walk from the beach anymore, but midway between Wilton Manors restaurants, shops and clubs and the beaches makes it an even easier access to...

Was glad to hear that David the owner of the Coconut Cove opened a new place and was able to bring Hazel along with him. The staff is very knowledgeable about all local activities and go out of their way to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay. The hotel is halfway between the beach and the Wilton Manor nightlife....
