Dilapidated moldy rooms, boarded windows
Avaliou em 6 de Setembro de 2018
It was a terrible decision I made to book this place. The rooms are made of concrete floors with boarded windows, the AC didn't work, and the smell was awful. The price was the same as a beachside bungalow just down the way from me. Needless to say, I had to abandon my first night's money that I'd already paid and escaped to the bungalow down the way to stay there. The owner of this place lives in California, and does not care for the welfare of his guests.
Bones on the bite DYI

The middle of July 2013 I had the pleasure of staying at the Cookie House fro 5 days , I travelled by myself in search of catching bone fish on a fly. 2012 travelled to Elethura for the similar amout of time but found Cat Island to be far more productive for the DYI fly fisherman.
I found the Cookie House via the internet as a hotel offering a true Bahamian experience
There are other lodgings on Cat Island that cater to vacationers that are looking to lay on the beach or in a hammock all day. I personally was there to to find and catch Bones
Mr Pat (co owner) was a pleasure to know and could not be a nicer guy, he facilitated all my needs from a car, to setting me up with a local guide (shorts), that put me on fish within ten minuets of entering the waters, Orange Creek. The Bone Fish here would school up on low tide in counts of a hundred, not lying :)
There is an earlier review that states there was a plumbing issue that I also encountered, but on notifiying Mr Pat he imediately corrected the issue caused by a previous contractors work.
The property does sit on the water front with a bueatiful tropical breeze,though the room amenities may be sparse you will find everthing in the main dinning area.
I would highly recommend the hiring of a car as you will want to explore the Island and the wonderful people and their culture.
I have never liked the concept of a vacation resort where the attitude is they prefer to keep their guests with in arms reach which is quite acceptable for some people but not I.
While the Cookie House may seem rustic to some it fit every need I was looking for in a Do It Yourself Bone Fishing experience and intend to return.
If there was one draw back on this adventure it was the choice of airline to Cat Island, check with Wayne (the other owner) when making resevations as he will be able to direct you to a reputable carrier that is currently servicing the island
All in all a fantastic time and I am looking to re-book
Ps if you are going to fish ask Pat about the old marina development
hoew often do you get your own private beach?

The hotel was nothing flashy, just a few simple clean rooms...about five steps away from the ocean. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience; no one but my family was at the hotel so it was really private and a nice way to have family time. we had our own little stretch of ocean and at high tide waves were splashing the windows! the sunsets were beautiful... the water was really warm and clear. there was a guy who came to the hotel and sold us fresh fruit. Pat was such a sweetheart, he cooked us whatever we wanted (lobster, fresh fish, crab), it was like having a personal cheff. he was willing to do about anything to make our stay better and was constantly appologizing for the recent huricane dammage. (warning, the airport was pathetic, we had to show up and hour earrly to wait in a one-room airport...and the plane was 45min late...and lost our luggage...) Cat island is extremely remote, dont expect shopping and tourist attraction; you go for the view, experience, and tranquillity. there are not many accomadations though so be sure to bring everthing you need (soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste.) be sure to rent a car and go visit the bat cave and the old church ruins
Great place :) Great food Great service Great view Great experience True Bahamas
Not for everyone

The hotel may have seen better days before the hurricane, but I was not impressed. Although the room was clean, the bathroom had a major water leakage problem. There are no tvs, no radios, it is simply you and nature. Pat, one of the proprietors, was a sweetheart. He was a good host; round trip transportation to & from the airport, cooked us dinner and gave us a tour of the island. If you're looking for a luxury 4 star hotel, this is not the place for you. Even though the service was good, I wouldnt return back to the Cookie House.

My wife and just returned from the Cookie Cabanas in Cat Island and we were both most impressed with the lodging, the location, and above all Pat Rolle and his service. The food was particularly very tasty. This is a great place for others to take advantage. Don't miss it.
