What makes this Bungalow unique
Darien is a charming historic town on the waterfront. The house is conveniently located for walking, bicycling, or driving to many historic and natural destinations to sightsee, beach comb, bird watch, and eat local southern fare. We recommend: Waterfront Wine and Gourmet Skipper's Seafood B and J's Seafood Old Jail Art Center and Museum

very nice and the weather was beautiful. We enjoyed the friendly people, food, and the beautiful trees.
Comfortable home base for exploring Darien's beautiful creeks
We had a great time in Darien at Christy's home. It was a perfect home base for paddle trips through the swamp and down Cathead Creek, being a short walk from the boat ramp and the delicious seafood at Skippers. Thanks!

This old house has been refurbished and they did a good job. However, it is located in an area that leaves much to be desired. Across the street is a pit bull chained to a clothes line. There are vehicles abandoned in the weeds next door. Feral cats roam freely and two were screeching loudly as they fought in our small front yard. Other dogs were howling and barking at 3 AM. A rooster was crowing well before daylight. The one TV does not have cable or satellite service. What they do have is something with which we were not familiar. We spent more time trying to get it to work than we did watching whatever came up. We could not find local news or weather. We paid for four nights but left after two. Darien is a neat little town off the beaten track. Visit and enjoy, but choose your lodging carefully. Good luck!
Unfortunately, Dan did not communicate his concerns with us until he had left early. I found his private complaints that he left in a note to us very disturbing- calling the neighbors , who are kind, helpful hardworking crabbers "rednecks" and complaining about roosters crowing, which is a feature of Darien in general. Our number of 5 star reviews speaks for itself. Here is a recent review from a guest, "frog hammock is a wonderful spot. quiet peaceful, relaxing. Everything you could want for a getaway in the area. the bikes are a great touch and a wonderful way to get around and see Darien. Excellent experience. Thank you!!!
Private Feedback: Christie. frog hammock is very special. the feeling or vibe was so wonderful. my daughter wants to move there!!! Thank you."
Christie is friendly and helpful. They gave us bikes to roam and they respond to your messages.
We really liked the house and the only reason we gave 4 stars and not 5 stars is because of the environment around the house. It could have been cleaner. Overall our experience was good in Christie’s house.
