Overview

About the property

This 1/1 redefines romance, plus offers Fishing!

The Casita may be my favorite home.

1 bedroom, 1 bath...a perfect hide away. You wake, stretch and look out your windows at the spectacular views of water and nature. Upon your request, we are happy to deliver a Continental Breakfast to The Casita. After a leisurely morning, you just have to try the outdoor shower with enough room for two. As you return to The Casita, you may see a pod of dolphins playing near the dock.

As the day continues, you may choose to boat over to St. Catherine's or Ossobaw Island and relax on the beach with a picnic lunch. By mid-afternoon, you head back to The Casita and the spacious outdoor kitchen now comes into play. You fire up the grill and prepare an evening meal (that somehow tastes better than any meal you've ever prepared), or you may choose to have your meal prepared for you! And of course there is always the option of dining out at a local seafood restaurant .

This beautiful hideaway is close to I-95 but FAR from everything. Don't worry about leaving your pet at home...dogs are welcome. And there's never a check in or check out time.

Bring Your boat, dock it, then use our fish cleaning station to clean your daily catch! Local fishing charters are also available.

About Cookie Lopez & Danny Atkins

After retiring from the corporate world, Danny and I decided to dedicate ourselves to the Island and to providing the ultimate Island Paradise Vacation for our guests. We turned our rustic garage into a beautiful guest house for friends. Comments from family and friends about our hospitality, the beauty of our guest house renovation, and the unique beauty and serenity of the Island ultimately helped us decide to open up our B&B.

Cookie Lopez & Danny Atkins purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Cookie Lopez & Danny Atkins chose Midway

I was a 'City Girl', but Danny's family spent over 30 years on Colonels Island enjoying and celebrating Island Life. My first time visiting the Island, I thought I was going to some Godforsaken middle-of-nowhere places. After a few days I knew that I never wanted to leave!

What makes this cottage unique

Imagine living in a place where you can look in almost every direction and see beautiful coastal water! Dolphins jump every day! I wake up and see Deer in our front yard! Living in the outdoors surrounded by the sounds of nature... indescribable! Please come see for yourselves!

Loved every minute!

  • 5 of 5

We kayaked everyday and saw stingrays, baby sharks, crabs, shrimp, fish and dolphins. We also rode bikes each day and OMG at all the baby deer. We rode to see the horses and goats. The scenic view could never get old and having the outdoor kitchen is amazing which we didn't always have to use since Cookie made us some delicious meals to die for. We could not have asked for a better trip! All I can say is we will be back!!

Wonderful location. Amazing cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband brought me here for my 60th birthday. The cottage is amazing. Cookie has done a wonderful job of planning and decorating. We thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor kitchen although in July we were having very hot and humid weather. Beautiful views from every window and when waking in the morning from the bed. Cookie has made every effort to make the place comfortable and charming. Comfortable mattress, nice sheets and bedspread. Everything very clean and fresh. We enjoyed spending one day in Savannah and another learning the local history. We brought our own kayaks and enjoyed kayaking right from the dock. We were on a budget so did not take advantage of the charter boat to the islands but next time may bring our own Jonn boat with motor. Cookie has done a super job of creating a very attractive and restful vacation spot!

It was a beautiful cottage and the hospitality was superb.

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay at the Casita. It was a beautiful setting for our 30th anniversary vacation. The hospitality we received from Cookie was unlike anything we had ever expected or experienced anywhere else.

Relaxing, peaceful and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying on Colonel Islands. The cottage was the perfect get away. We loved seeing the sunrise without having to leave the comfort of our hanging bed. This adorable cottage is located in just the right spot so you can also enjoy the sunsets in the evening. We even saw a dolphin feeding one night.

Cookie is the perfect hostess who makes you feel right at home and like family. She is a wealth of information for those who want to hang locally or if you want to go and explore off Island.

We can't wait to go back.

Beautiful. Very Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for our Anniversary. We wanted something away from it all so we could relax and not go somewhere with huge crowds and traffic. This was perfect. We stayed there the whole time, just relaxing and enjoying the view and the property with fishing and the hot tub and the outdoor kitchen. It was super relaxing, which is just what we needed. We fished a lot and caught some fun things. We ate some fresh shrimp we bought directly from the hosts. The view was amazing to look at all day every day. The house is great for a couple. The bedroom area is basically all windows so you can enjoy the view almost like you're outside. I was worried the open window doors wouldn't be private but there really isn't people walking by your room so we were able to relax and enjoy it! The kitchen is AMAZING. We cooked all of our meals and it was so nice to not have to go inside and cook and it get all hot. We loved cooking outside in the breeze and be able to still enjoy the scenery. We already told all of our family they need to visit here when they need a quiet, relaxing, fun get away!

Perfect getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The rental was even better than it looked on VRBO and it looked great there. Cookie was very friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable about things to see and do and where to eat. The food she prepared was also delicious. She was the perfect hostess. You can't go wrong if you choose to stay here. I will definitely be returning.
