Former Sebastian resident

  • 5 of 5

We are former Sebastian residents that love to come back to visit friends every year. The Coconut House is by far our favorite rental and we have rented quite a few. This was our second visit in this house. It is fantastic. Close to everything. I am a runner and I could go all the way to the river walk from this house and only logged a few miles from the house and along the river. The owners are so easy to deal with and they have thought of everything to make your stay stress free!

My husband and our two teenagers had the pleasure of staying at this home 2015, The owners left a lovely Basket geared for The kids. Rosemary was wonderful to work with. The home was even nicer then the pictures, it was laid out perfectly for privacy. The kitchen was also very well equipped with everything you need for planning family meals. Everything was spotlessly clean.The pool felt secluded from the quiet neighborhood. There was a very thoughtful binder full of local information to help navigate the area. The house was close to everything from the beach to shopping, tennis and basket ball courts. We will definitely be back.

Awesome house and wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of our visit to Sebastian and the Coconut House! We have rented dozens of homes/condos over the past 40 years and have never found one this clean and well-appointed and supplied! It was immediately obvious that owners, Rosemary and Mickey Nelson, make the comfort of their guests a top priority! They were also quick to answer questions. There are many good restaurants in the area including Coconut Cove which is owned and operated by a Germany family. Edelweiss Restaurant is German/Austrian owned. Both serve authentic German food!!! For great pizzas and calzones, try Stone Creek Pizza and pickup great food located only 5 minutes from

the Coconut House. We will be back to this wonderful house and location next year!

Thank you for turning what could have been an ordinary vacation, into a relaxing adventure in a fantastic house!!! Thank you for everything, including the cute gift basket and bottle of wine!

The Beachbums

A most well maintained, equipped home. Spacious, quiet neighborhood and easy access to all activities. Loved watching the skydivers while lounging in the pool and the very short ride to the golf course. Definitely a place to return to.
