We were near the end of a long day of driving. Hungry and tired... saw a small sign for the Coconut Palms Inn. Missed the turn and drove through a small neighborhood of oil tanks and a fire station and scattered single family houses. Ended up at a dead end next to the office. Hadn't seen anything of the place and knew nothing. The clerk was most friendly, relaxed, witty and wonderful... not to mention, stunning. She ( as it turns out) epitomized the Inn. We were profoundly impressed with the simplistic beauty of the bay, the elegant and welcoming landscape and the cozy, eclectic room. The moment we got our bags settled we were relaxed and at peace. We decided almost immediately to stay another night. We spent the days simply absorbing the tranquility and the charm. With a sense of regret we drove south to our reserved place on Big Pine Key. Immediately, we knew we made a mistake. We longed to return to the Coconut Palm. We did promptly the next morning. Back in paradise. Our same wonderful room... the amazingly super sized bed, the sweet help, the happy neighbors, the serenity. No hype. no tacky big box packaging, no muss, no fuss... just sheer delight. I don't know that either of us ever enjoyed a stay any where as much. We were sad to drive off the next morning. We were glad we stumbled upon the Inn and would gladly return - and never leave... thanks for being there for us.
