A small, personalized eco-friendly, smoke-free inn, surrounded by parks and the Atlantic, the Award-winning DeSoto Oceanview Inn offers comfortable accommodations in a lush, tropical environment, just footsteps from the ocean. Choose from studios, efficiency apartments and one bedroom apartments all upgraded to meet the most discerning traveler’s needs and completely committed to green practices.

Indulge yourself with romantic dinners under our Polynesian-inspired gazebos, or simply relax under swaying palm trees. It’s all here, waiting for you. The DeSoto is conveniently located to South Beach, Fort Lauderdale and all major Florida attractions. From world-class shopping, major sporting events, casinos, international cultural activities, fine-dining, dancing and nightlife, we’re near it all.

For the eco-tourist, The DeSoto is nestled on a barrier island in the middle of the South’s largest mangrove preserve. Neighboring Anne Kolb Nature Center provides a glimpse into Florida’s eco-system, offering kayaking, boat tours and hiking for free or at very nominal prices. The Everglade is only a short distance away, where you can see the endangered Florida panther and alligators sunning along your path to this spectacular destination.
It’s easy to see our location offers something for everyone, but most importantly, the quiet charm and warm DeSoto hospitality completes a holiday to remember in the warm sub-tropical climate of South Florida.
