ABOUT US

Making family travel as easy as A, B, C
The proof of how much we enjoyed our stay at the Santa Cruz Residence is that as I opened this page to write this review and my 3-year-old saw the picture and yelled "I want to go back to that apartment!

Our Story

We know what it is like to travel with kids. With over 15 children between us and more stamps in our passports than we can count, the team at Kid & Coe has first hand experience of the highs and lows of family travel.

With hand-picked accommodations around the world, plus insight from local parents about how to get the best out of their destination, we’re revolutionizing how families travel.

From private homes with everything you need for a toddler to boutique hotels in unique destinations with child-pleasing restaurant menus we have searched out the very best in family travel accommodation around the world so you don’t have to.

Founder Zoie Kingsbery Coe created Kid & Coe in 2013 out of personal necessity. For years she had been traveling the world with her musician husband, kids in tow, and saw that hotel accommodations that suited a touring couple no longer fit the needs of her growing family. Zoie began seeking out kid-friendly property rentals that made her family feel at home wherever they were in the world. As increasing numbers of parents asked Zoie to share her travel expertise and property secrets, Kid & Coe was born.

Newspapers, blogs and magazines all love the fresh spin we have put on family travel. In 2016 the site was nominated for a Webby for its excellence in website design. With over 10,000 nights booked at Kid & Coe properties, we know what makes a family stay special.
