The month at Sand Dollar Cove is in the top three of our most relaxing and wonderful vacations. The cottage is well-equipped with cooking utensils,linens, towels, washer and dryer, and the extra amenities of the sea kayaks, a motor boat, grill, etc were as promised. The access to a quality WIFI connection, Skype, and Cable TV provided us with the connectivity we needed, again without any glitches. Chad is a superb host and graciously guided us to the best wines (A and K), grocery shopping (Maxwells and Abaco Grocery), fresh seafood, and day trips in the area (Man-O-War, Hopetown, Treasure Key). I'm a vegetarian and was able to find fresh fruits, vegetables, and Morningstar Farms products without a problem throughout the month. The sweet potatoes at the Abaco Grocery were awesome! I was able to walk 2-3 miles on the beach every day and rarely encountered another person while finding shells, seeing dolphins, and observing many species of birds, including the endangered Bahama Parrots.Be sure to bring your camera and water shoes to traverse the coral rocks when you cross the "creek" that leads to the southern beach (flip flops don't work!). This is a perfect beach for a family as the water is only waist deep at high tide with gentle waves and children could play safely. At low tide in places, we could walk out over a half mile which gave us great views of the neighboring keys. We had tasty lunches at Jamies (mac and cheese is fantastic!), Pete's Pub at Little Harbor, the Jib Room, and Junovias. Chad's recommendation to acquire a car from Rental Wheels worked out well although we did not feel comfortable driving at night (our age and not used to driving on the left). Other guests that we met during the month did not share that concern and did drive at night. If you are searching for a quiet location to relax, read, to walk on what Chad calls an un-peopled beach, and to return home rested and energized by the beauty of Casurina Point's sunrises and sunsets, we strongly recommend Sand Dollar Cottages.
