Vacation at the Casita
My husband and I truly enjoyed this little piece of heaven. For a relaxing, no stress, low key vacation this is the spot! Cookie welcomes you and treats you like royalty. We cooked up delicious meals as we watched the dolphins play. Don’t let me forget the hanging bed. You could see the water right from the bed every morning. What a view!
Daily beauty and inspiration
We might’ve overstayed our welcome (we were there a month) but every day brought new joys; even the ferocious windy rainy one which also brought waves. It is a rare occurrence to wake up to a 180* view of water, marshlands, and Spanish moss backlit by the early dawn, however we got to do it every day. We were pleased with and grateful for our tireless hostess, Cookie, who knows everyone and everything worth knowing in the area. A friend of Cookie’s showed us where to safely harvest oysters, and we were excited to go out without his assistance and get our own later in our stay. My husband was able to fish often and we enjoyed exploring the creeks by boat. We had the best local seafood, both home cooked and at restaurants, that we’ve had anywhere. Sunbury’s Crab Company was a standout for its steamed seafood platter, and The Fish Dock at Pelican Point is famous for its fresh oysters and shrimp. Our dog also had a wonderful time, finding several equally energetic friends to run with, box, chase, and romp together in the pluff mud. My only complaint is that blue crabs were not plentiful enough to put together a crab feast! Altogether this was a terrific vacation destination, one to which we’ll be returning soon. Many thanks to Cookie and all her neighbors who welcomed us and made us feel right at home.
Best 4 Day Mini-vacation Ever!
To begin with let me just say Cookie is the best! She treats her guests as though they were family and made sure we were happy and comfortable with the Casita. each day she made a suggestion for a restaurant to go to based on where our adventures took us. Whether it was eating with the local crowd, or a trendy vegan cafe (that had these meat eaters spellbound!) to a quaint mom and pop style spot with homemade crab cakes measuring 7 inches across, every single one was just what we needed as we filled our adventurous days with cycling, kayaking and just good ol’ exploring in a part of the country we didn’t know much about. The Casita was our home base and after a full day the hot tub and starry sky relaxed us before we climbed into bed for the night. Have you ever slept in a swinging bed? Well that gentle sway rocks you to sleep and before you know it you are greeted with the sunrise in the most tranquil spot around. We hated to leave, but we will definitely return to the Casita.
Little Piece of Heaven
This is the place you go to breathe, unwind from the everyday go, go of life. How a vacation should be. Peaceful with great views, great hospitality. Place is very clean. Loved the swinging bed. The Casita is cozy and inviting. Thank you Cookie for all your hospitality.
Always an amazing stay!
This is the second time we have stayed with Cookie in her properties. Cookie always makes us feel like family when staying and goes above and beyond to make our stay the best! We opted to have her make breakfast for us in the morning and each morning it was delicious. We were able to drive to Savannah and St Simons Island two separate days and come back for a relaxing evening. We will definitely be coming back!
A bit of Tuscany right on the water in GA
It was a perfect, isolated cove for
peace and quiet, and not too far from Atlanta. We had dolphins 2 days in a row. It had everything we wanted: hot tub on deck overlooking water; outside shower; amazing outdoor kitchen; outside fire; and charming cottage with character. Cookie was perfect host and her optional breakfasts were delicious. And she is just kind and generous sharing her favorites of cuban coffee, lemon cake, and rum drink with fresh sprigs of mint. The setting really allowed for rejuvenation and we will be back again. Next time we will perhaps use the kayaks, take that boat ride, or explore more but the draw of relaxation kept us content. The town of Darien for lunch (crab cakes), wine shop (also great steaks for grilling), Turnip's (for salad fixins'), and Cookie's local restaurant suggestions were excellent. An all around great 3 night get away. And I could adopt that sweet pup
who made her rounds each morning to say hello.
