Do you love the beach, but hate the bother of schlepping your umbrellas, coolers, tables and blankets across the sand?
If so, Heather Nunnelly and Shannon Clague, co-owners of Crown Town Tipis, can help you enjoy your day at the beach without struggling with that awkward umbrella.

One of the newest businesses in Coronado, Crown Town Tipis is the brainchild of Nunnelly, who spent the better part of a year dreaming up ways to turn her passion for the shore into a fun business that benefits the local community. Nunnelly is the creative partner, and describes Clague as the mastermind behind social media and the creation and maintenance of their website (

The duo notes that they can accommodate parties of all types and sizes, as long as it’s under the limit of 25 people, (more than 25 requires parties to procure a permit from the city prior to booking).
The base pricing for small, medium and deluxe tipi set ups is $50- $75, with a two hour minimum. While Coronado is the main location, tipis can be rented for other approved locations as well.

Charcuterie trays are available in addition—loaded with cheeses, nuts, fruit and crackers, it’s the perfect finger food for any beach gathering. The pair also happily offers customizable packages for all ages and events. Kids party? Add hot dogs and smores. Engagement? Chocolate covered strawberries are perfect for such an occasion. Navy Retirement? Red, White and Blue cupcakes. They can also provide approved fire pits for clients who prefer beach parties under the moonlight.

The pair is careful to follow all local beach ordinances, and all of the stemware and dishes are made of reusable plastic. There is no glass, no straws, and no alcohol provided with the rentals, and the platters are finger-food friendly. Nunnelly remarks that loving the beach means taking care of it, and they ensure that there is no trash or plastic left behind.

Supporting local businesses is important to Nunnelly and Clague, and as they expand their business, they are hoping to partner with other local businesses in order to provide a variety of décor and food for a complete, personalized experience.
