Beautiful place to stay. We got stuck here because of the blizzard up north and the host went out of his way to accommodate us. This location is close to everything and really quite lovely. We will definitely be back.

Tom and I just returned from a delightful two-week stay at the Big Coconut. It's a great place to stay in Fort Lauderdale!!! Close to everything!!! David, Tom and Tim provide wonderful hospitality. The rooms are very spacious, beautifully decorated, and clean! The most impressive thing about the Big Coconut is the very welcoming vibe one gets from the owner,...

Very friendly staff and clientel. The owner is very accommodating. Very relaxing and quiet. My first stay, but plan to go back. Nice rooms, some are actually studio style apartments. Complimentary continental breakfast everyday and happy hour twice a week.

What a wonderful treat to find and pleasure to stay in. Dave Hazel and Tim are so attentive and welcoming. The guesthouse it self is spotless and the rooms are very spacious. The pool area is super cozy and its clothing optional so you don't have to any white bits if you don't want any :p) There aren't many rooms...

We just finished a 15 night stay with the best host (David) and staff (Tim and Tom) we have had the pleasure of staying with in 17 years of vacations in Ft. La La. They are so attentive to everyone's needs. The place is well kept and the weekend Happy Hour with Hazel behind the bar is worth coming back...

A huge THANK YOU to David for making an exception for my partner and me on a busy weekend. We were leaving on a cruise on a Sunday in February and only had two nights to stay in Ft. Lauderdale. David waived the usual three night weekend minimum and let us stay at his incredible guesthouse for two nights. I...

First of all the staff are great, everyone takes so much pride in their work (while having having fun), it's hard to tell the difference between the staff and the owner till you hear David laugh, it's so refreshing to see such pride. I'm a walker so the location is perfect for me, I'd walk down to the beach every...

This place was squeaky clean. Owner was on property and very anxious to do anything we needed to make our stay good. Nice courtyard with a clean pool too. He put on a good sized free breakfast. I will highly recommend The Big Coconut to any of my gay/bi friends. Great job!

The penthouse suite is the place to stay....and the other rooms are just the same....clean and welcoming. David is clearly an expert in guest experience, as well as his staff!. Walking distance to a Publix supermarket, liquor store, & a drug store...what else do you need.
