"We did extensive research to find the perfect home that would comfortably accommodate our family of 6 and another family. I admit, we almost did not book this house due to some of the negative reviews. I am so relieved we did not listen to those reviewers. We would have missed out on the perfect vacation in this gorgeous home.
Family friendly: Our party included four adults, two one-year-olds, one four-year-old and two teenagers. I was worried that it might not be the right home with the younger children. There is a simple solution. We took photos of everything before we got settled and then everything that a small child could potentially break out of reach. Upon check-out, we simply reset everything. We installed two baby gates and made sure to put a buffer between the gate and the wall as to not leave a scratch. Voila! Super baby proofed home. There were highchairs and Pack n Plays provided as well as tons of beach toys. Perfect home for families.
The house: We constantly commented on how everything was perfectly thought out from the decor, the functionality and layout. I feel like I need to redecorate my own home to mimic Tranquility House. It was so fresh, so clean, so....happy. I will have daydreams of one day owning a kitchen as stunning as this one for a long time. It was so functional, yet so beautiful and spacious. We loved the heated outdoor shower. The owner has two big rules: no sand and no dripping in the house. Makes sense to me. I wouldn't want sand all in my home. Because the beach is RIGHT THERE, it simple to go down and enjoy the beach for a little while, go wash off in the outdoor shower, dry off and come back in. The elevator was also very helpful for loading and unloading as it stops right at the kitchen and outside the bedrooms.
The beach/ view: We loved sitting on the porch with coffee, watching the ocean. Some days my only care was whether I wanted to read my book on the porch or down on the beach. We had awesome dolphin viewing every single day, up to a dozen dolphins just happily playing. My husband and teenagers got an friendly visit from a manatee while swimming near the sand bar. The beach has tons of awesome shells and shark teeth (just don't bring stinky shells into the house).
This house is perfection. We look forward to coming back again and again. Do not listen to the negative reviews, you might miss out on the most relaxing and rewarding vacation you have ever had."

"We've stayed at Coquina Cove a few times, and as soon as we get home we pull out the calendar to figure out how quickly we can get back. Don't let the short ferry ride or proximity to mainland fool you; you truly feel like you're on a private island in the middle of the Caribbean. Even during peak "Spring Break" season, the beaches were private and still very secluded. One of the biggest highlights of staying on Don Pedro Island, is Coquina Cove itself. It's not just a fantastic vacation rental, but it truly feels like it's a home we would live in. EVERY attention to detail has been paid, and I've not found myself wanting for anything. The outdoor shower, beach supplies, hot tub, kitchen amenities, comfortable beds, FANTASTIC A/C (you'll need it in middle summer months), and most importantly the attentiveness of Julie. The golf cart rental is nearly a must, as just cruising around the island is one of our key activities. Everyone is laid back and respectful that we've come across. If you're looking for a true getaway without all of the hustle and bustle, THIS is your place. We come back recharged and refreshed and truly satisfied after another wonderful stay at Coquina Cove."

"Walk for hours on a white, sugar-sand beach that is relatively deserted. Read by the pool or relax in the hot tub as lizards chase each other on the pathway. Watch fish jump and roll from the quaint docks in your backyard. Find multitudes of shells, shark's teeth, and pieces of coral as you watch the dolphins roll and play in the surf. Chase your little ones on the sand as they fly a kite. Build a sand castle or rent a bicycle from the resort. Explore the neighborhood from a golf cart and enjoy the beautiful houses and properties nearby. Stroll up to "Coconuts" and enjoy huge ice-cream cones or a delicious steak dinner. Watch breath-taking sunsets and take spectacular photographs of this peaceful island. These are just a few of the activities that my family (6 members from age 7 - 74) enjoyed at our BEST EVER vacation to the Pelican Inn. It is quiet, peaceful, and private. The property has everything you need for a great get-away and more! My husband and I enjoyed the separate en-suite while my mom and 3 children stayed in the two bedroom home just steps away. Barbara made us feel very welcome from the first contact we made to her and Bob (the island manager) was prompt and efficient. We cannot wait to visit this little piece of heaven again. Thank you and God bless!"
