One bedroom has a Queen bed, the other a Full sized bed, both equipped with comfy cotton quilts and linens. Enjoy breakfast on your balcony deck overlooking a beautiful fenced and walled yard with a custom-built Tiki Hut. Hardwood floors, cypress and knotty pine walls and ceiling fans make Casa Coquina feel like a hunting or fishing lodge from years gone by. The kitchen has modern appliances: side-by-side fridge, dishwasher, glass topped range and lots of storage. It's open to the living room, which has comfortable sofas and a fireplace, and a separate dining/sun room. The Flamingo Bathroom even features the original pink and maroon fixtures!
Amenities: Casa Coquina radiates character and whimsy and will definitely appeal to anyone who loves that great 1950s era of Trader Vic's and tropical Tiki Culture. Owned by a freelance writer, Casa Coquina's guests have included artists, writers and musicians who appreciate and seek out creative and interesting vacation destinations.
